If you followed The Gambler’s Guide To The NFL Week 2, you would have made some money. I was not horribly profitable, but you would have come away with something.
This week I am taking a stab at some college football action, here are my picks:
Houston @ Tulane
Houston is coming off of a close loss to a very good Washington State team. Tulane beat up on Missouri State. I think Houston is the better team, and getting 3.5 points makes this an easy bet for me.
Utah @ USC
Utah beat BYU by 18, who beat USC by 3 points. Math tells me that Utah will beat USC by 21 – so they easily cover 3.5 in this game.
Air Force @ Boise State
Air Force +8
Boise State is a good team, but they have only beat Florida State and Marshall by a combined 11 points. I think 8 points is a lot to give to an Air Force team coming off of a solid victory over Colorado.
Michigan @ Wisconsin
Michigan is not as great as everyone thought they would be coming into this season. Wisconsin is Wisconsin. I do not know who wins, but Michigan +3 is hard to pass up.
Washington @ BYU
After losing their season opener, BYU is coming off of back to back OT wins. I think Washington is the better team, but BYU keeps it close.
Auburn @ Texas A&M
Texas A&M has played one competitive team this season, Clemson, and lost by double digits. Other than that – they blew out Lamar and Texas State. Auburn has the lone impressive win between the two – over Oregon. Even though Auburn is on the road, I’m taking them and the points.
LSU @ Vanderbilt
UCF @ Pitt
UCF beat up on Stanford last week. I think they do the same against Pitt.
Charlotte @ Clemson
Clemson has to win by at least 6 touchdowns, right?
West Virginia @ Kansas
Both of these teams are unpredictable. I have to go with Kansas and the +4.5.
Kentucky @ Mississippi
Is this actually what the line was at? This seems too good to be true. I think Kentucky looked good against Florida last week. I think they win this straight up. This is easy money. (Everything that I wrote means that Ole Miss will probably blow out Kentucky now)
Oregon @ Stanford
Stanford will bounce back after a rough road loss to UCF. They always play spoiler to the Ducks season. I think the Cardinal easily keep this within nine points – and possibly take home the W.
Southern Miss @ Alabama
Alabama is too good. They easily win this by six touchdowns. I think they will be up by at least 39 by the end of the first half.
Notre Dame @ Georgia
Notre Dame +13.5
I think that Georgia is worse than their ranking, and Notre Dame is better than their ranking. To me, this seems like an even matchup. Notre Dame easily covers as almost 2 TD dogs.
