10. North Texas at UTEP

LINE: North Texas -27, o/u: 53
ATS PICK: North Texas

There’s a wee bit of a concern considering the UTEP defense hasn’t been all that miserable.

The stats aren’t great overall, but the pass defense is only allowing 168 yards per game, and there’s a shot the Miners can keep the score from getting out of hand at home.

After all, the 52-24 loss to UNLV was the only time UTEP has lost by more than 27 so far, and that includes the Tennessee game.

But North Texas is coming off a stunning loss to Louisiana Tech, and now it’s about to crank up the offense again after scoring 44 points or more in each of the first four games.

9. Auburn at Mississippi State

LINE: Auburn -3.5, o/u: 43
ATS PICK: Auburn

Take the chance that the Mississippi State offense of the lat two weeks isn’t going to suddenly perk up against the nation’s eighth-best defense and the SEC’s No. 1 scoring D.

The Auburn offense has been a bit weird and ineffective for long stretches, and coming up with just 376 yards per game is a problem, but Mississippi State managed just seven points against Kentucky and six against Florida.

This Tiger defensive front is better than those two. You’re not asking for the world to not just win this game, but do it by four.

8. Nebraska at Wisconsin

LINE: Wisconsin -17.5, o/u: 59.5
ATS PICK: Wisconsin

Nebraska is a wee bit better than its 0-4 record and how it has played so far, and there’s the concern that Adrian Martinez might just be the right kind of quarterback who can screw up the Wisconsin defense, and …

Nah.

The Husker run defense isn’t anything great, the offensive line is a problem, and there are way, way too many issues with the turnover margin. None of those things will play against a rested Wisconsin team that has to start putting it all together now.

With a trip to Michigan up next, give it a little bit, and then the Badgers should be able to carve up the Husker defense however they want to.

7. Maryland at Michigan

LINE: Michigan -17.5, o/u: 47.5
ATS PICK: Michigan

This is a really, really bad matchup for the Terrapins.

Not only is Michigan coming off a clunker performance and a win over Northwestern, but the Maryland offense isn’t going to be able to make a big enough push.

The Terps can’t come up with first downs on a regular basis, they have the worst passing game in the Big Ten, and they need to run the ball to have any sort of a chance.

The Michigan run defense is seventh in the nation against the run allowing 86 yards per game.

At home, the Wolverines wiped up Nebraska by 46, whacked SMU by 25, and beat Western Michigan by 46. They’re just different so far in Ann Arbor.

6. Boston College at NC State

LINE: NC State -6, o/u: 59.5
ATS PICK: NC State

We still don’t quite know what NC State is – with the best win so far against Virginia – but that’s still telling. It was able to win without too much of a problem thanks to QB Ryan Finley and the offense that leads the ACC in third down conversions, and it’s only allowing 104 rushing yards per game.

Is AJ Dillon healthy? At the very least, the BC star running back isn’t 100%, and on the road, the Eagles that were able to explode in four of their five games so far are going to have an issue.
