Hlastradamus: Take it from someone with a .500 win percentage, Iowa will cover at Northwestern

Hlastradamus has had quite a week. He ate Spam and Pop-Tarts with the other 3,300 stranded passengers of a cruise ship off the coast of Mexico. Five centuries ago, he predicted Spam and Pop-Tarts would be world staples.

After going 3-2 last week to even his season record against the pointspread at 16-16-1, it's time to tear through the rest of the season. Let's start with a game close to the hearts of many of you.

Iowa -9.5 at Northwestern. So many points on the road against a competent foe. What gives, oracle? He simply thinks the Hawkeyes will be laser-like in their focus, and Adam Robinson will run as if he never had the concussion Kirk Ferentz never said he had.

Illinois -20.5 vs. Minnesota. Three words regarding the Gophers: Dead team walking.

Wisconsin -21.5 vs. Indiana. Another big number. Another overmatched visiting team.

Ohio State -18 vs. Penn State. Another big number. Another overmatched visiting team.

Is there an underdog to love, oh prophet?

Purdue +13 vs. Michigan. Hlastradamus decrees Michigan doesn't have enough defense to beat any Big Ten team by 13 points on the road, even the lowly Gophers.

Good day.
