10. USF at UMass

LINE: USF -15, o/u: 71

It’s always going to be dicey whenever the total of over 70, and it’s going to be a fight to get there, but assume the UMass defense still won’t show up.

Six of the seven UMass games so far this year haven’t just hit 70; they obliterated the number. The one time it didn’t happen was a 34-13 loss to Georgia Southern on the road, and that was more about the Eagle ball control speeding up the game.

The concern is whether or not USF will get it all going. The East Carolina game totaled 33 points, and the Illinois was was just 44. This hasn’t been an explosive O quite yet, but it can get to around 45 points against this UMass D.

9. Iowa State at Oklahoma State

LINE: Oklahoma State -9.5, o/u: 55.5

This is all about the Iowa State offense. It struggled to score against TCU last week, it had a hard time getting points on the board against Akron, and so far, only the loss to Oklahoma got past 56 points total.

Oklahoma State certainly has the offense to put up a huge number – it has scored 44 points or more in four of the five games – but this should be ground down to a stall at times. OSU can still put up 30 or so, and the number can still come in around 50 or lower.

8. Kansas State at Baylor

LINE: Baylor -4.5, o/u: 55.5

Is Kansas State ever going to score? It managed just 14 points or fewer in three of the last four games, with the only aberration a 41-17 win over UTSA.

Just one Wildcat game has gotten to 56, but just one Baylor game has gone under it.

The Kansas game was the one that didn’t – Baylor won 26-7 – with the Bear defense all but certain to give up at least 24 points to a Kansas State offense that’s a whole lot better than it looked so far. The Bears should get to well over 30 in a good, fun, Big 12-style battle.

7. Ohio at Kent State

LINE: Ohio -12, o/u: 69

These two have been involved in a few different firefights, but this should come up just short – even though it’ll be close.

The Golden Flashes have struggled offensively – they have yet to score more than 24 points in an FBS game – but Penn State hung up 63 on the board, and last week, Ball State put up 52.

Ohio’s offense scored 58 last week against UMass, and has been good for at least 30 points so far. But even with all of the fun offensive games, the defense should be just good enough to keep Kent State from going off.

6. Tulane at Cincinnati

LINE: Cincinnati -7, o/u: 48.5

Admittedly, this is a feel pick.

The last four games have gone way, way, way over the 49-point mark. The offense has been steadily okay – throw out the Ohio State game – and the defense isn’t nasty enough keep Cincinnati from continuing its upward trend.

The Bearcats have scored 34 points or more in each of the last three games, and just tagged UConn for 49.

But the Green Wave defense was solid against Memphis last week, and the Bearcat D has allowed seven points or fewer in three of the last four games.

48 isn’t a lot, expect this to be more of a slog than it might seem.
