LINE: Georgia Tech -9, o/u: 55
ATS PICK: Georgia Tech
Either Penn State and Oklahoma State are totally awesome, or Pitt is totally lousy. It’s somewhere in between, but on the road against a rested Georgia Tech that should come out sharp, there should be a steady stream of Yellow Jacket production. This is a bad Panther defense that’s about to get hit for just enough big pass plays to lose big – again.
LINE: PICK, o/u: 51.5
ATS PICK: Charlotte
Charlotte might be bad, but a dead even call for a home date against the team that lost to Tennessee State? Georgia State has yet to prove it can score.
LINE: Auburn -18.5, o/u: 55.5
ATS PICK: Auburn
Purdue beat Mizzou by 32 last week. Purdue isn’t 13.5 points better than an Auburn team in need of a big statement.
LINE: Maryland -3.5, o/u: 60
ATS PICK: Maryland
There’s way too much love and respect given to a UCF team that 1) hasn’t played in three weeks and 2) blew out a bad FIU squad. Remember, UCF under Scott Frost has yet to beat anyone who can play.
LINE: Wake Forest -5, o/u: 49.5
ATS PICK: Wake Forest
It might be a road game at Appalachian State, but what has Wake Forest shown so far to suggest that it’s going to have any issues winning by more than five? The 24-point win at Boston College was the closest anyone has come to touching the Demon Deacons. (And who doesn’t want to do that?)
LINE: West Virginia -20 o/u: 71
ATS PICK: West Virginia
Kansas lost at home to Central Michigan by 18, and we’re supposed to believe that West Virginia is only two points better than the Chippewas?
LINE: Penn State -12.5, o/u: 52
ATS PICK: Iowa
When was the last time Iowa lost by more than 12.5 points at home? 2013 vs. Wisconsin. Penn State has played absolutely no one so far, and it’s about to deal with Iowa City at night. This is going to be a physical battle, just like Iowa wants it – the Hawkeyes could win this outright.
LINE: Oklahoma State -11.5, o/u: 71.5
ATS PICK: TCU
TCU could absolutely win this outright. The defensive front is nasty again, the secondary survived the shootout with SMU, and the battle-tested team that beat Arkansas 28-7 should at least keep this to under double-digits.
LINE: Alabama -18.5, o/u: 43
ATS PICK: Alabama
Remember when Texas A&M was 6-0 last year? Yeah … Bama 33-14. How about when 4-0 Georgia got to host the Crimson Tide in 2015? 38-10. LSU was 7-0 when it faced Saban in 2015. 30-16. Be happy if Vanderbilt scores.
LINE: Michigan -10, o/u: 52
ATS PICK: Michigan
What Jeff Brohm is doing at Purdue is absolutely wonderful, but now it has to deal with a team with a real defensive front, a real offensive line, and a real attitude that it can and should do a whole lot better.
Sort of like Alabama being ticked off that the defense slowed down late, the Michigan offense should be ultra-focused and play well this week after struggling against Air Force. Put the line at 20 and it would still be a gift.
