Hlastradamus takes Hawkeyes, Spartans, Dawgs

Warning: Wisconsin has been very good to those who wager on it

It's good to be clairvoyant.

Last week, Hlastradamus told you just how things were going to go. He said Iowa would cover the 4 points against Northwestern. So what if it took an overtime? The prophet doesn't ask "How?" when he looks in his crystal ball, he just asks "How many?"

Hlastradamus was 4-1 last week, and the only reason he wasn't flawless is because he dabbled with the riff-raff of college football in picking Massachusetts over Western Michigan. Congratulations to Western on winning in its first game, and now the prophet hopes never to see that team again.

On with this week's winners:

Iowa +9.5 vs. Wisconsin: The Hawkeyes have covered in five of their last six games. They're at home. That's a lot of points. This is called spelling things out for you mortals.

What? The Badgers haven't failed to cover the pointspread all season? The prophet couldn't care less.

Michigan State -4.5 vs. Michigan. The Spartans have allowed a total of three points in their last two games. The Wolverines have allowed 90 points in their last two games.

Kansas State -17 vs. Iowa State.: K-State beat West Virginia by 23 last week. Is Iowa State better than West Virginia?

Georgia -2.5 vs. Florida: The difference in this game is Georgia has an offense. It's kind of a desired element in football.

Northern Illinois -23 at Massachusetts: Hlastradamus bears a spiritual grudge against UMass for its feeble performance last week. Jordan Lynch & Co. will punish the Minutemen for 60 minutes.
