I have backed NI twice and lost ATS (Wyoming and Akron).

I think with the #17 BCS ranking, they have to much on the line to look week at UMASS...

NI 56

UMASS 21

Wow is Lynch not playing   23..that's it?

This is going to be like the Buffalo game that Umass played...this one won't even be close...This isn't Western Mich or Miami Oh...This one will be over by the half...

N ILL in a blowout

N ILL 63

U MASS 3

The lines are sharp this time of year, I slow way down on the bets I make. Massachusetts is a team that averages just 10 points a game. NIU as most of us know has been rolling through lower level MAC competition thanks to their crazy good QB Lynch. But a word of caution, sit on your bets till Saturday morning for November games and see what the weather is. If it is rainy and windy take the Massachusetts team under. If it is nice weather take NIU -23. They should be motivated to crush teams so they continue to move up in the ratings. If NIU comes out flat again like they did against other crappy teams it's a coaching \motivation problem because this game is a flat out mismatch.

I do agree with (bet with caution this time of year) but this game needs no caution N ILL half and game. This line will go to 26-28

moneymagoo is right, line is moving. Took it at 23.5, I expect it will move right past 24, which is a key number. NIU is still a strange team, hopefully they don't play half hearted like they did against some other crap teams. No more mercy games thanks to the FBS ratings system, if NIU wants to move up in the ratings they have to keep the foot on the pedal until the fourth quarter. Massachusetts has such a bad offense (10 points a game) I doubt they pull a back door cover against the third string.

lordzud- you called the flat game against Idaho.  I respect that.    I want to hope that No Ill wants to win with style to possibly get up to the top 12 and an at large bid to the BCS.  a half assed effort like against Akron and Idaho is not going to cut it with the PCs nor the voters...

I just don't see Umass scoring anything here...they couldn't get a sniff against the Bulls in Buffalo...though the Bulls D has been playing great lately...but how is this Umass team going to keep up once Lynch starts lighting it up..their D can't stop anything..Lynch my run for 5TDs himself...I see N ILL scoring at will & by the half this one could be ugly..Best of luck everyone

52 for a high and sunny in Foxboro, perfect football weather. LIne is up to 26.5. No game is a lock, NIU will get enough points, the question is will UMass score.

UMass is not improving they still lost three games by more than four touchdowns go Northern Illinois all in 63-0 last year should still win by 30 or 40

Well UMass scored way more than I thought..field goal kicker had a great day for them..lol..but Lynch sits out the 2nd half & the rookies turn the ball over a few times & they still blow out Umass..
