Vindy's Picks Week 10-2015 Early Edition

Northern Illinois (+7 ½) over #20 TOLEDO: Best guess for “wish” pick, but takin’ the Rockets here would be far too easy. Huskies have put this one in the win-column five consecutive years and haven’t lost by this many since 70-21 annihilation here eight years ago. Last year’s 27-24 victory accounted for Spaceships’ only conference-defeat. While having dropped 3 of 4 on the road in 2015, Sled Dogs are 3-1 ATS in those matches and have been solid 7-3 in this role over past two-plus seasons. They did lose by 10 at Central Michigan earlier and NIU hasn’t suffered more than one MAC SU “L” in any season since absorbing three in 2009.  Rockets lead the MAC in scoring D at just north of 16 per game, though UMass found a way to dent that stop-squad for 35 last weekend. Huskies are 4th at 24.5. Both clubs are well-balanced on offense and scoring capability is basically equal at 37 ppg each. Canines are just a game back of West Division-leading Toledo. Signature game for Apollo 13 was 37-24 neutral-site triumph over Ol’ Miss. Signature game for NIU?...Seven-point loss at #1 Ohio State. NASA-North stays perfect, but… Mudhens 34 Huskies 31
