10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 8-2

Memphis at Navy 68.5 UNDER
UMass at Georgia Southern 63 UNDER

10. Georgia Tech at USF

LINE: Georgia Tech -3.5, o/u: 61

The 61 isn’t a massive number, but this should be a wee bit more of a a game full of long scoring drives as opposed to big, explosive plays.

The rain and bad weather isn’t expected to kick in until later in the afternoon/early evening, but in the muggy humidity, it’ll be a grind at times.

There will be scoring, and neither defense will come up with anything nasty, but this is a Georgia Tech offense that should consistently hover around 30 points. The D will do its part to keep the Bulls in the 20s.

9. Georgia at South Carolina

LINE: Georgia -10, o/u: 56

Last year, Georgia won 24-10. There will be more points than that, but not a whole lot more.

The South Carolina offense is a whole lot better, and the Georgia O is explosive, but this shouldn’t be any sort of a shootout. If anything, the Bulldog attack goes off for 40 … and the D keeps USC to around 14.

Blow off the 15 points the South Carolina defense allowed last week against Coastal Carolina – the Gamecock D will end up doing its part to keep this from getting out of hand.

Expect this to be in the mid-20s, not the 30s.

8. Clemson at Texas A&M

LINE: Clemson -12, o/u: 52.5

Yeah, you’re going to be a little bit concerned that the Clemson offense goes off and puts up a big number on a not-ready-for-Jimbo-era defense, but more likely, it’ll be the Tiger D that turns out to be the story.

A year after allowing more than 21 points just three times, the Clemson defense is about to turn it up to 11 and make a national statement.

Ten of the last 13 Clemson games last year were under the 52 mark, and this one isn’t about to get out of hand, either.

7. Baylor at UTSA

LINE: Baylor -16, o/u: 55

Maybe … the UTSA defense just isn’t as strong as it was last season.

Arizona State was able to roll at will last week in the 49-7 opener … and that’s over 51.

Meanwhile, the Baylor offense started to look like the Baylor offense again, putting up 55 on Abilene Christian. Best of all, the Bear D gave up 27 points.

Last year’s game might have been a 17-10 UTSA win, but that’s not happening again.

Both teams will get to at least 20, and Baylor will get to a bunch more.

6. New Mexico at Wisconsin

LINE: Wisconsin -34.5, o/u: 58.5

The big concern with ever going over with Wisconsin games is the Badger defense.

Yeah, the Lobos put up 62 on Incarnate Word last week, and yeah, the new New Mexico passing offense worked, but …

There’s a shot the Badgers give up fewer than ten points. Again.

And now, Wisconsin’s offense – in general – doesn’t go off to a stratospheric level. It only came up with more than 45 points once throughout last season, so to get to the over, it’s going to take some work from the Lobos.

It’s going to take some effort, but Wisconsin’s offense should go off for close to 50 – it’s going to be a machine after last week.

You’ll get there, but you’ll have to wait all four quarters for it to happen – saved by a late pick six.
