Well, we made it through Week 1 of the college football season. My Ohio State Buckeyes passed their first test of the season and are up to the #2 spot in my weekly Top 10.
I have 22 plays this week. I think this is the week I go 18-4 or 4-18. It’s one or the other. It’s moving day.
Louisville / UCF under 61.5
Cards offense looked really bad and UCF can’t pull that much weight to get this game to 62.
Boise State / New Mexico over 44
Boise put up decent numbers against a P5 and New Mexico finished in the 40s last week. Gotta think they combine for 50+.
Ohio State -44 vs Arkansas State
Beat Notre Dame by double digits and fall in the AP Poll? Aight, cool. Buckeyes by 60.
Kansas State -7.5 vs Missouri
Geographic rivalries matter to college coaches. K-State will come ready and Missouri is not a good football team.
South Carolina / Arkansas over 53
Thought long and hard about Hogs -9. I like Hogs -9, but I can’t dive in and get burnt. So it’s the total for this one too. Points, points, points.
Wake Forest / Vanderbilt under 65.5
Can’t have a good offense when wearing these colors. It’s science.
Marshall / Notre Dame over 51.5
I’m aware that I have scarlet-tinted glasses during the college football season. That being said, I don’t think Notre Dame’s offense is as bad as Ohio State made it look on Saturday. What do we need out of Marshall? 13?
Appalachian State / Texas A&M over 54
Remember when App State beat Michigan? That was fun.
Tennessee / Pittsburgh under 67.5
When you have two high-powered offenses that total gets inflated pretty quick. If one team is off, it goes under. If both teams are off, it goes way under.
Houston +3 at Texas Tech
Lubbock, Texas is in the middle of nowhere. Cougs will get the win and get out of there as quickyl as possible.
Iowa State / Iowa over 40.5
The number is so low that logically it should go over. I just talked myself into taking the under. Nope, flip-flop flip-flop, fade yourself, over.
Kent State / Oklahoma under 72.5
Same thing here. This is my lock of the week. That number is so high it should logically go under. 51-21 is an under. That’s bananas.
Florida -6 vs Kentucky
I don’t know man. I thought Florida looked pretty good against Utah. The Richardson kid is electric.
Syracuse -22.5 at UConn
Ohh yea! Big East basketball is back! They should play this game at Madison Square Garden.
UMass / Toledo over 49.5
I could see Toledo scoring 50. I could see Toledo giving up 30.
Oklahoma State -11 vs Arizona State
I might lose on Oklahoma State all year.
USC -8 at Stanford
Andrew Luck isn’t walking through that door any time soon.
Boston College +3 at Virginia Tech
Hokies? More like Jokies. Can’t even beat old whatchamacallit last week. Bums.
Hawaii +52 at Michigan
Too many points.
Hawaii / Michigan over 67
Can’t lose both.
Baylor +3 at BYU
I might stay up past my bedtime to watch this one. Baylor wins outright and might be legit.
Arizona +10.5 vs Mississippi State
Plus double digits at home. Don’t think, just shoot.
Good luck. Pay your bets if you lose.
