12-10 on college football up 2.39 units
Colorado at -320 for 4 units. UCLA has not won a game all season and now they travel to Boulder. Colorado has not lost a game all season. Chip Kelly’s “great” offensive schemes have his UCLA team averaging only 17 points a game and allowing 30 something. I would bet Colorado -10, but UCLA has to play desperate. A hungry dog runs faster and what not. Colorado’s Laviska Shenault Jr. has a touchdown in every game and has earned his way onto the list for best wide out in the country. This game is worth watching just for him.
Central Michigan +30 for 2 units. Michigan State has not blown anybody out all season. Central Michigan is 1-3, but they are only allowing 140 passing yards per game on the season. Also, they have 5 interceptions in 4 games. Michigan State has been fairly one dimensional this season with the air attack. MSU only has 3 runs over 10 yards. They will get some 10 yard runs in this one, but 30 points is just too much for this in-state game.
Clemson -25 for 2 units. Syracuse beat Clemson last year. Clemson just named Trevor Lawrence their starter and Bryant has decided to transfer. Sunshine, as Trevor is known, places the ball where it needs to be like he is Jared Goff playing the Vikings on a Thursday. Syracuse has a great QB in Eric Dungey, but he will not be able to do enough against this hungry Clemson defense.
Alabama -49 for 3 units. UL Lafayette lost to Mississippi St. by 46. They scored 10 points in that game, Saban will want his Bama team to pitch a shutout. UL has one of the worst run defenses in college football. Not going to overthink this one.
Texas Tech +3.5 for 2 units. Texas Tech leads college football in plays per game. Tech is historically known for their offense – See Pat Mahomes. Tech’s defense is solid this year though in the games I have watched. Grier has thrown a few too many interceptions already in this young season. Going to Texas Tech is not easy, this might be WVU’s toughest game on the schedule.
NC State -6 for 3 units. UVA is not as good as NC State. It is that simple. The Hoos strength on offense is running, while NCSU has one of the best rush defenses in the country. It gets a little tougher here for State, but I like their consistent QB and their 3-0 record.
ECU -7 for 4 units. East Carolina won’t take ODU for granted. Let down game for The Monarchs. ODU gives up over 500 yards a game; whereas, ECU only gives up 320 YPG. Old Dominion gives up over 225 yards a game on the ground and ECU will take advantage of this. ECU won the only other meeting by 14 and I expect more of the same here. This is a must win for ECU, while ODU has already had one of the best seasons in school history (no exaggeration).
VT +4.5 for 5 units. This is make or break for VT. 2-2 does not look good for them. Duke is good on defense, but so is VT besides last week. Ryan Willis takes over for VT here. Duke has not been tested yet and I think this will be a close one. I am taking the points.
Ohio State -3 for 2 units. OSU is just better than Penn State. I thought this line would be OSU -7 so I will bite.
LSU -10 for 5 units. I love this LSU team. Ed O is the man. I need a translator sometimes to understand him, but it is still awesome. He sounds a lot like my uncle when he has a lot of chewing tobacco in his mouth. LSU’s offense does not make mistakes and the Ole Miss defensive front is not as strong as past years. LSU’s defense can shut down Ole Miss to cover here. LSU’s scoring defense is 15th. Ole Miss’s scoring defense is 112th.
