10. Kansas State at Oklahoma

LINE: Oklahoma -24.5, o/u: 64.5

You’re never crazy by thinking an Oklahoma game will go over. The Sooners have scored 45 points or more in each of the last three games and five times in the seven so far.

The team that hung up 52 on TCU and 66 against Baylor could take care of this by itself.

Kansas State games have sputtered and coughed at times, but the offense has put up 30 points or more in each of the last two games. Again, OU should do most of the work – the Cats only need to help the cause with a few scores.

9. Central Michigan at Akron

LINE: Akron -5, o/u: 45

It just doesn’t take much to get to 45 points.

Akron’s offense might sputter and cough – it hasn’t scored more than 24 points in any of the last four games. However, every Zip game but one has gone over the 45 point mark without a problem.

Central Michigan is also struggling – it hasn’t scored more than 24 points all season long – but each of the last four games have gone to 45 points or more.

Theses two mediocre teams are playing someone their own size. It should be enough for each side to get into the 20s.

8. Florida vs. Georgia

LINE: Georgia -6.5, o/u: 52.5

This is assuming the Cocktail Party isn’t going to turn into any sort of a shootout.

The Florida defense continues to be great, giving up 27 points or fewer in every game so far, and fewer than 20 points in four of the seven games.

But until the 36-16 loss to LSU, Georgia scored 38 points or more in every game, and 40 or more in five games. Even so, this should be more of a defensive slugfest than an up-and-down shootout.

And don’t discount the possibility that the losing team gets stuffed enough to keep this in the high 40s.

7. Wyoming at Colorado State

LINE: Wyoming -3, o/u: 45.5

Wyoming just doesn’t score.

The Cowboys have lost four games in a row and in six of the last seven games. Over the seven games since putting 29 up on New Mexico State, UW has yet to score 20 points.

Colorado State’s defense is just bad enough to make this the week that the Wyoming goes off, but that’s asking to break character – the Cowboys really, really, really don’t score.

The Ram O isn’t anything great, either, and it’s going to struggle to get to 20 points against this UW D.

6. North Carolina at Virginia

LINE: Virginia -9, o/u: 50.5

Even when the North Carolina offense goes off, it doesn’t always score. It moved the ball well against Virginia Tech, and it still only scored 19 points. It put up 37 points last week against Syracuse, but ten of them came in the two overtimes.

For all the good things UNC does, it just doesn’t score. Meanwhile, Virginia is great at keeping games low, holding teams to 14 points or fewer in in three of the last four games, and four of the six games so far have been well under 50.5 points.
