Michigan was coming in at -4 in this game.

While this one has moved from -2 to -4, we are seeing the number drop from -4 to -3.5.

We are seeing some books down to -3.

Sagarin indicates the line should be Michigan -2.

Of course the Wolverines are undefeated coming into this game and Wisconsin is 11-6 Straight Up.   Michigan has won the last three.

We are giving the Badgers a 55% chance of covering here while stopping short of offering an official pick.

Virginia was seeing 75% of the action in their 6 pm EST game at Duke as a +3.5 dog.

This one has been hovering between -3 and -3.5, and for the most part following along with the line.

Monday night we pretty much knew by the end of the 5th inning in the Nationals-Rockies game our pick on the OVER would not lose.  That's because the score hit 5-5 with an OVER 11.  The pitching got better after that so we still had a bit of a wait to see the end result.
