Plenty of nice looking favorites on this card and a few underdogs that have a good chance to win. Let’s break down each game one by one.
Michigan Wolverines to beat Penn State Nittany Lions (-114)
Michigan is a disappointing 2-3, but the good news is that easily trumps Penn State’s laughable 0-5 record. The Nittany Lions have all kinds of issues on both sides of the ball. Offensively, quarterback Sean Clifford has thrown eight interceptions and as a team they have also lost five fumbles. Defensively, Penn State is surrendering 36.0 points per game. That does not bode well in advance of facing a Michigan squad that finally started running the ball with some success during last week’s overtime win over Rutgers.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers to beat Texas State Bobcats (-900)
The Coastal Carolina quarterback, Grayson McCall, continues to play at an elite level and now has an 18 to 1 touchdown to interception ratio. Their rushing offense is also very solid, seeing that they have four guys with at least 275+ yards rushing and three or more touchdowns.
Boston College Eagles to beat Louisville Cardinals (-115)
The Eagles have a quarterback that has thrown 2,355 yards, 17 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Their rushing offense is a small problem since they only average 3.1 yards per carry, but they can certainly exploit this Cardinals’ defense the entire game. The Cardinals held the Orange to a shutout last week, but that is not saying much. With a much better Boston College here, I like the Eagles to win.
Duke Blue Devils to beat Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (-112)
Duke, which dominated last year’s matchup 41-23 home, features two impressive running backs in Deon Jackson (580 yards, four touchdowns) and Mataeo Durant (592 yards, six touchdowns). They probably won’t be slowed down by a mediocre Georgia Tech defense, who last played on Halloween.
Baylor Bears to beat Kansas State Wildcats (-245)
Kansas State has traditionally struggled against Baylor; the Wildcats are 2-6 straight-up in their last eight games against the Bears, and they’re 1-5 straight-up in their last six visits to Baylor. Add in the fact that Baylor is a much different team at home (1-1) than on the road (0-4), and we feel comfortable rolling with the Bears.
Oklahoma State Cowboys to beat Texas Tech Red Raiders (-470)
Texas Tech has overall been awful this season, mainly because of their lack of defense. They had their best defensive performance last week and still allowed 23 points. The Cowboys are not as bad as what we saw last week and I do not expect the Red Raiders to be able to contain their rushing attack. For that reason, I will back the Cowboys to win.
Indiana Hoosiers to beat Maryland Terrapins (-480)
Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has improved dramatically since an inconsistent start to the year against the Nittany Lions. He passed for a career-high 491 yards and five touchdowns at the Buckeyes’ expense, while receiver Ty Fryfogle racked up 218 yards and three TDs on seven catches to earn Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors (that’s two such awards in a row for Fryfogle). The Hoosiers’ offense is scoring a ton of points this season and I expect them to roll here.
Mississippi State Bulldogs to beat Ole Miss Rebels (+260)
Ole Miss has a terrible defense, so the Air Raid should have some success here. The Rebels have beat two terrible Vanderbilt and South Carolina teams in recent weeks, but right before that, they had lost three in a row. They also had their most recent game postponed due to COVID-19, so they could be rusty here. I will take the Bulldogs’ to win behind a big offensive game from their quarterback.
