Each year, the Golden Nugget releases its annual ‘Games of the Year’ point spreads for college football prior to the season.

Releasing point spreads for 250 games, the Golden Nugget picks out what games it determines to be the best games of the season and gives its point spread so you can help pick out who is going to win. This year, the Big Ten has a good amount of games that are featured on the Golden Nugget, and some of them are pretty interesting.
