College Football Week 15 Predictions

6-2 on College Football this season Up 17.63 units

Full disclosure, my units are so high because I hit two parlays that included an NFL game, but were mostly College football. The money was still won and the plays were posted in advance.

The Big Ten has changed their rules so Ohio State can be their Playoff team. Back in my day you had to play at least 6 games to make the Big 10 Championship game, but NO MORE! Dabo Swinney thinks Ohio State shouldn’t make the playoff. Dabo’s thoughts on the matter:

“Obviously, that’s a tough question to answer in my position because we feel like we’re definitely one of the best four teams in the country and there’s nothing that’s going to happen in that game next week for Clemson or Notre Dame that’s going to change that in my opinion and that’s based on data,” Swinney said. “It’s almost like you’ve got to have 120 hours to get a business degree and yet these people over here only need 60 hours to get a business degree.

“I think any time you step in between the lines, the game of football, there’s a lot that can happen — a lot. I mean, heck — in 2017, we lost to a three-win or four-win Syracuse team and still went to the Playoffs. So anything can happen. Guys can get hurt. There’s a lot. So I think the fact that we’re going to have 11 games as well as the SEC teams — I mean, you look at Florida and Texas A&M and Alabama. I mean, these teams are going to have 11 games this year.”

It will be real interesting to see who gets left out of the playoff. Do Texas A&M and Bama both get in if Bama has one loss? Does Clemson’s loss even count cause they didnt have Lawrence? Poor Cincinnati and Coastal Carolina.

Iowa +2 at -110 for 6 units. Iowa has played almost twice as many games as Wisconsin. What a weird season this is. Iowa is averaging over 37 points over their past 5 games. I think the perception is that Iowa’s “boring” offense against Wisconsin’s strong defense will lead to a Badgers’ win. This should be a close game, but I like Iowa’s offense more than most this season. Tyler Goodson, is well, good at running the football for the Hawkeyes. Iowa’s defense is just as good as Wisconsin’s. Wisconsin’s best healthy wideout is 5 foot 7. Davis being out kills their ability to jet sweep along with other things. Mertz has no one to throw to. Iowa’s seniors will want to end the losing streak against Wisconsin. I think Iowa’s defense against Wisconsin’s lack of wideouts, along with Iowa just simply having more game and practice time this season means they should be favored. Take the points.

Florida/LSU under 68.5 at -110 for 3 units. I just see a 41-14 type game here. I don’t think LSU can score against this Florida defense.
