The NFL season does not start for one more week, and when it does, Russell Wilson will play an everyday season recreation for a staff apart from the Seattle Seahawks for the primary time. It will even be his first recreation enjoying below a brand new contract.

The Broncos and Wilson agreed to a contract extension Thursday that can maintain the 33-year-old with the Broncos for 5 years. The deal is price $245 million with $165 in ensures. That is some huge cash for a QB on the incorrect aspect of 30, however it’s exhausting guilty them for wanting to ensure they will maintain him so long as they need.

🔥 The Sizzling Ticket

Penn State at Purdue, 8 p.m. | TV: Fox

Newest Odds:

Penn State Nittany Lions

  • Key Development: Penn State is 9-4 ATS in its final 13 Large Ten video games.
  • The Decide: Penn State -3.5 (-110)

Once you cowl faculty soccer for a residing, a rhythm develops within the offseason. Within the weeks after the season ends, you look again at what occurred and take fast glimpses towards the longer term. Then, for a number of months, there’s not quite a bit occurring so far as video games are involved. Faculties would possibly be part of new conferences, new TV offers could possibly be signed, and perhaps anyone will get hit with NCAA violations, however that is it.

Lastly, as summer season arrives, the thrill a few new season begins, and also you’re repeatedly requested to speak or write about your predictions. All offseason, I talked about Purdue being essentially the most overrated staff within the Large Ten coming off a 9-4 season. Regression is probably going. In the meantime, Penn State is so significantly better than its document the final two seasons, and it is being underrated by too many.

Tonight the 2 start their season in opposition to each other in an try and make me appear to be a genius or an fool. I genuinely have no idea which one I’m. I do not care what final season’s data say, Penn State is the higher staff on this matchup, and I count on that to be evident tonight. Lay the factors and really feel nice about it.

This is what SportsLine is saying in regards to the recreation: You know where I stand, but the Projection Model and SportsLine expert Micah Roberts do not agree with me.

💰 The Picks

🏈 Faculty Soccer

Ball State at Tennessee, 7 p.m | TV: SEC Community

The Decide: Over 66.5 (-110) — Josh Heupel was employed at Tennessee to do one factor: make Tennessee soccer enjoyable once more. This system was mired in mediocrity and drama for much too lengthy. Heupel hasbrought an thrilling offense to Knoxville, and the Vols scored 39.3 factors per recreation final season. It was such a enjoyable season that it has Tennessee followers a bit too optimistic about what would possibly occur in 2022, however I will not maintain it in opposition to them.

As a substitute, I am going to remind them that the staff went 7-6 final 12 months as a result of despite the fact that it scored 39.3 factors per recreation, it allowed 29.1. Tennessee wasn’t precisely a defensive juggernaut. It is exhausting to be when you’ve gotten an offense that strikes as rapidly as Tennessee’s, and I do not suspect a lot will change tonight. I will not be shocked if Tennessee will get not less than 50 by itself tonight, and I can see Ball State getting previous 20 too. 

Key Development: The over is 6-1 in Tennessee’s final seven residence video games.

New Mexico State at Minnesota, 9 p.m | TV: Large Ten Community

The Decide: Minnesota -36 (-110) — It is the rivalry you by no means knew existed. New Mexico State is coached by Jerry Kill, who spent 5 seasons at Minnesota from 2011 to 2015, going 29-29. His well being compelled him to step down from the job, and the following season the Gophers saved Tracy Claeys on after he served as interim. Claeys went 9-4 however was proven the door to make room for P.J. Fleck.

Jerry Kill doesn’t like P.J. Fleck and has been open about that in recent times, believing that Fleck has been the beneficiary of his work. No matter aspect you wish to take, all that issues is neither aspect likes the opposite a lot.

With that in thoughts, if Minnesota has the possibility, I do not suppose it’s going to hesitate to run the rating up. I additionally suppose the Gophers could have the possibility to try this as a result of New Mexico State performed Saturday evening. It misplaced 23-12 to Nevada thanks to 5 turnovers, and now it is enjoying once more 5 nights later. A foul staff on a brief week in opposition to a coach with all of the motivation to crush it? Lay the factors.

Key Development: Minnesota is 7-2 ATS in its final 9 video games.

🔒 SportsLine Decide of the Day: The Projection Model’s favorite college football play of the evening tonight is on the total between Missouri and Louisiana Tech.
