College Football Picks
Going by their records and last week’s results, you could assume there’s not a lot to separate these two teams. Their paths to this spot, however, have been very different. Oregon benefits from opening the first month of their season at home. This is the fourth of four straight games at Autzen to open 2018. And while Oregon was beating Bowling Green and Portland State, Stanford was beating a good San Diego State team and then easily downing USC. Sportsbooks have Stanford -2 here on the road. Mr. Levinson breaks down the potential play.
The Arkansas Razorbacks have a bit of a problem at the quarterback position. In last week’s game against North Texas, three Razorback quarterbacks combined for six interceptions in the awful loss at home. That sets up nicely for Auburn to rebound from their loss to LSU. But does it set up well enough to cover 30.5 points? Bryan Bash makes his pick.
Washington held Utah to 7 points on Saturday showing how good their defense can be. Over the last few years, they’ve become a top defense in the world of college ball. All the DBs in the NFL who played here over the last few years show that and this year looks to follow the same pattern. Loot looks at both defenses and the sportsbook’s line to make a total pick.
Saturday, September 25th, 2018 the #13 West Virginia Mountaineers will host their Big 12 foes the Kansas State Wildcats at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown, West Virginia. Keith Franks has a pick and game breakdown!
The Georgia Bulldogs will take their number 2 ranking on the road this week when they go into Columbia, Missouri for a showdown with the Missouri Tigers. The spread is currently Missouri -14. Jay Horne analyzes the game and shares his selection.
Last week I warned everyone that despite being nearly a double digit underdogs LSU was very capable of going into the Plains and upsetting Auburn with an outright victory. Low and behold…here we are. This week LSU also has a hefty -20 spread. Jay analyzes this game and makes his football selection.
Another year, another reload and another Clemson team that has the talent to contend for the National Title once again. That seems to be the way things are down in South Carolina. That hasn’t spelled success for Clemson bettors. The Tigers failed to cover the spread in 3 straight weeks. Jay Horne feels that trend will change this weekend.
It’s a battle of big name ranked football schools yet the spread is still completely lopsided at 24.5 in favor of the Tide. Jay Horne breaks down the game and focuses on the defensive matchup.
Wisconsin was shocked by BYU in Madison last week, marking the first non-conference loss at home for the Badgers in 15 years. The Cougars went head-to-head with Wisconsin’s strengths – something I suggested would doom BYU – and won. The -3 spread suggests sportsbooks and the public think Wisconsin lost their swag but is Iowa only a field goal worse? Ted Walker takes a look.
The Washington State Cougars are off to a 3-0 start after running over the Eastern Washington Eagles last Saturday 59-24. The Cougs are currently winning games by an average of 29 points per contest. Neither team expects a margin like that on Friday. USC is favored by 4.5 points.
Central Florida has allowed just 17 points on the season. It’s hard to say what that means with the opponents being really weak. Maybe it means the opponents have been really weak? But, they started last season the same way and the offenses figured them out a bit as the year went on. Is it too early for Florida Atlantic to break this year’s D? Loot Levinson takes a look and gives his football pick.
The Illini have a one advantage they may use to keep this contest close, their rushing offense. Penn State’s defense gives up 148.3 yards per game on the ground (68th nationally). This helps a team whose running game has produced 244.3 yards per (23rd nationally). Is this enough for Illinois to keep the game within 28? Mike Mann gives his opinion and his college football pick.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish head south to take on Wake Forest in an early Saturday afternoon game at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem. The teams have met four times since 2011 with Notre Dame winning all of the match ups, including a 48-37 victory in South Bend last season. Will Notre Dame make it 5 in a row and 4-0 on their season? Mike Mann breaks down the game and gives his prediction.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Temple Owls meet on Thursday September 15th, 2018. These two teams are playing for the prize of a .500 record. Temple has home field and with that a -7 spread. Jay Horne breaks down these very similar teams and makes his football pick.
The Washington State Cougars host their east-side instate rival Eastern Washington Eagles this Saturday evening in Pullman. The two schools are a little more than an hour apart from each other and have met a few times over the years—Eastern Washington may be from the lower BIG Sky Conference, but they are as good or better than any team the Cougars have faced this season. WSU is 15.5 points better according to the market at the sportsbooks.
The Washington Huskies make the trip to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Utes on Saturday, as both teams open their Pac-12 Conference schedules. Last season’s matchup between these two teams turned out to be a doozy (what am I, 90 years old?), as a Washington FG with time running out gave them the 33-30 win in Seattle. This season’s pairing figures to be another competitive game as evident by sportsbooks separating these teams by less than a touchdown.
