10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 60-50

To chirp for a moment – have to when there’s a chance – 9-1 last week. Starting with a few that didn’t quite make the cut, but are still spicy …

Iowa State at Texas 46.5 OVER
Michigan at Indiana 53.5 OVER
– Nevada at San Jose State 59.5 OVER

10. UMass at Georgia

LINE: Georgia -41.5, o/u: 66.5

How much does Georgia care?

UMass has allowed 55 points or more in five of the last ten games, but three of the last four games were way, way under the 66.5. But none of those games were against Georgia.

The Bulldogs will get to 40 points without a problem, and if they’re focused and want to play for a full 60 minutes, coming up with 66 wouldn’t be a problem.

With bigger fish to fry with Georgia Tech up next, and then Alabama, the Bulldog twos will play in the second half, and they might just give up a late touchdown or two. That should and could be enough.

9. Utah State at Colorado State

LINE: Utah State -28.5, o/u: 67

A point total of 67? In a Utah State game?!

The Aggies have scored 61 against New Mexico and 62 on San Jose State in two of the last three games, and has scored 42 or more in every game but the 24-16 win over Wyoming and in the 38-31 opening weekend loss to Michigan State.

Even at home, the Colorado State defense is good for giving up 35 points before it gets off the bus, and the offense should be strong enough to come up with at least 20 points.

8. Virginia at Georgia Tech

LINE: Georgia Tech -5, o/u: 52.5

You’re relying on the Virginia defense to slow this all down.

The Cavaliers were benefited by bad weather to keep the Pitt game low – just 23-13 – but that wasn’t an aberration. They’ve allowed 24 points or fewer in every game but the 45-31 win over Ohio, and the 35-21 loss to NC State.

Georgia Tech’s defense gave up 49 points to Clemson and 49 to USF, but that was weeks ago. No one has scored more than 28 points on this D over the last four weeks. And seven times on the year teams have failed to get more.

7. Utah at Colorado

LINE: Utah -7, o/u: 47.5

This just isn’t that much – for either side.

Utah has new parts in the backfield, and it still managed to score 32 points against Oregon. The D might be strong, but it’s not such a rock that it’s guaranteed to stop the desperate Colorado offense cold – especially on the road.

The Buffs fell flat last week against Washington State in a 31-7 loss, but with Laviska Shenault back and rolling, the passing game will start to work again. If you think either one of these teams will get to 30 points, getting to 48 won’t be a problem.

6. Notre Dame vs. Syracuse

LINE: Notre Dame -10, o/u: 65

On its own, Syracuse is great at cranking up the points. It’s scored 40 or more in each of the last four games and 51 or more five times. Notre Dame scored 42 or more in three of the last five games.

Now these two kids have to combine forces in a wee bit of a shootout.

It’s not looking for the world for theses two to hang around in the 30s. Both offenses will get big games out of their backfields, and at the very least, the Syracuse defense will be more than happy to give up lots of big plays and points.
