Picks, Predictions and Prognosis for Every Week 5 Big Ten Football Game

Will it be cheers or jeers on Saturday night in Columbus?

If your favorite Big Ten team is playing this Saturday, you are in the minority. 

That's right, just four games dot the Big Ten landscape this week and two of them are hugely important contests that could have major implications on the Leaders and Legends division races. 

Of course, the biggest matchup of the weekend pits No. 4 Ohio State against No. 23 Wisconsin in what some are dubbing the de facto Leaders division title game. 

It will get prime-time billing, but it isn't the most important game of the weekend—you'll have to go inside to find out which game holds that billing.

Schools like Michigan, Northwestern and Michigan State all get much-needed breaks to regroup and get ready for the gauntlet of Big Ten play. 

However, before we delve into this week's action last week was kind to my overall thoughts, but horrible against the spread…In fact, it was downright brutal in that area. 

So, here is where I stand heading into Week 5 of the season. 

Last Week: 8-2 (4-6 ATS) 

2013 Picks: 37-9 (25-21 ATS)
