Minnesota vs. Northwestern Free Pick
The Northwestern Wildcats have been a pleasant surprise in the Big Ten this year but can they stay unbeaten when they host the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Noon ET today?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wildcats are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Golden Gophers while the over/under currently sits at 40.5 points.
This is going to be a defensive slugfest through-in-through. Northwestern ranks third in the FBS in scoring defense at 8.8 points per contest and is 11th in total defense at 266.0 yards. Minnesota also held TCU to 23 points on September 3 and just like Northwestern, is still finding its way offensively.
The under is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams and 22-6 in the Wildcats' last 28 home games. The under is also 5-2 in the Golden Gophers' last seven road games.
