10 Best ATS Picks So Far: 57-54-1
Starting with a few that didn’t quite make the cut, but are still spicy …

LINE: Georgia -14, o/u: 52.5
ATS PICK: Auburn
One of the two big SEC games is going to be covered by the big underdog – and it’s being represented here. Either Mississippi State will cover the 23.5 against Alabama, or Auburn is going to keep it within two touchdowns against Georgia.
Georgia has faced one quarterback this year – Missouri’s Drew Lock. He struggled, but he threw for 229 yards as the team melted down a bit in a 14 point loss – and that was Mizzou. Auburn is just strong enough on the defensive front, and Jarrett Stidham might have flipped a switch against Texas A&M. Georgia wins, but the Tigers make it a fight.
LINE: Clemson -19, o/u: 56.5
ATS PICK: Clemson
Can Trevor Lawrence handle the cold, the big night game, and the Boston College defense? Yeah, but the Tiger lines will be what gives them the easy win.
AJ Dillon is playing for the Eagles, and this is a very good, very sound team that was able to whack around both Miami and Virginia Tech, but Clemson is playing at a whole other level up front on both sides. BC hasn’t dealt with a team that can run like Clemson.
LINE: Texas A&M -13, o/u: 66.5
ATS PICK: Ole Miss
The 13 are just too many to give away to an Ole Miss team that might be reeling, but has the ability to bomb away on anyone. Texas A&M will seem like it has the ball for the entire game, but last week it melted down late once Auburn and Jarrett Stidham starting throwing it. The pass D couldn’t handle Mississippi State’s Nick Fitzgerald, either.
The Aggies should win this at home, but of course, all you care about is the 13. A&M has yet to beat a Group of Five team this season by more than seven.
LINE: Texas -1.5, o/u: 62
ATS PICK: Texas
This opened at Texas Tech -1, and it’s a little stunning that it hasn’t moved more. Here’s the deal: Jett Duffey, if you can pull this off as the Red Raider starting quarterback this week with a team fully focused to stop you, cap tipped.
Texas has lost two straight firefights, and while Duffey will ball out and keep things moving, he’s going to have to deal with a desperate defense looking to make him win this through the air.
The last five Longhorn games have all been decided by six points or fewer, and it’ll take a whole lot of drama to get there, but Texas is better.
LINE: West Virginia -11.5, o/u:56
ATS PICK: West Virginia
The line has dropped like a rock, starting out at West Virginia -14.5 and with the public hammering on TCU. Two touchdowns might have been a bit rich, but this has settled in at about the right spot.
It’s all on the execution of the Mountaineer offense. If it’s focused and sharp at home, it can go 58-14 like it did over Baylor a few weeks ago. If TCU has the defensive wrinkle that forces Will Grier into a few picks, 11.5 still isn’t all that bad against a TCU offense that has no ability to keep up any sort of pace.
