Against The Spread Pick

College football kicks off the week with a Big 12 showdown between the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Baylor Bears. The Mountaineers weren’t bad to start the season, but they are really struggling coming into this game having lost three games in a row, and also failing to cover the spread on all three occasions. The Bears are coming off a dominating win against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They were only 5.5 point favorites in the game, but won by 18 points. The Mountaineers offense is going to have no answer in this game and it will lead to a cover by Baylor.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I don’t even watch to touch because the Bears have been playing at different paces this season which makes it hard to predict their total. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between the two teams which makes me lean to the over. This is about a half star play and I would stay far away from it.

Against The Spread Pick

The Appalachian State Mountaineers are continuing to roll in Sun Belt Conference play this season and are once again double-digit favorites against their opponent. The Mountaineers have yet to lose a game this season at 7-0 and have outscored their last four opponents 155 to 54. Meanwhile, Georgia Southern enters this game with a 4-3 record, but only have one loss in conference play. The scoring defense of the Eagles is one of the worst in college football, as they are allowing 31.5 points per game. When a team has a porous scoring defense, and they are going against a team that is prolific on offense, that’s never a good thing. In this case, the Mountaineers have one of the best offenses in college football. I look for the Mountaineers to come away with the win and an easy cover of the 15 points.

Over Under Pick

Appalachian Stats has one of the best offenses in college football, while Georgia Southern has one of the worst scoring defenses. Meanwhile, the defense of the Mountaineers is near the top. The offense of the Eagles is one of the worst in college football. I look for the Mountaineers to score around their average of 42.83 points per game. I think the Eagles will struggle to score on offense in this one, but they won’t have to score much for this game to go over the 44.5-point total. That’s why the over 44.5 point total is the right side here.

Against The Spread Pick

The Navy Midshipmen have looked like one of the most dominant teams in the AAC this season at 6-1. However, their loss to Memphis may come back to bite them for the division title. Still, over their past three games, they have outscored their opponents 121 to 58. In distinct contrast, the UCONN Huskies are one of the worst teams in the conference this season at 2-6. The Huskies rank 124th in scoring offense this season and 125th in scoring defense, making them arguably the worst team in college football this season. Navy will have no problem running the ball in this game as the Huskies rank 103rd in rushing yards allowed per game and 120th in rushing yards allowed per attempt. This is a no-brainer. Go with Navy as they will cover the 27-point spread in this game.

Over Under Pick

The Navy Midshipmen have the best rushing offense in college football; however, they are still a fast pace offense, and as a result, they rank 19th in scoring this season with 37.33 points per game. Meanwhile, the Huskies are allowing 38.14 points per game this season. Navy’s defense, though, is one of the better defenses in college football, and going against one of the worst offenses won’t help the cause for the over in this game. I look for this game to go under the 54.5-point total due to the struggles on offense for the Huskies.

Against the Spread Pick

The Texas A&M Aggies probably wouldn’t mind another week against SEC competition given that they have won two in a row, but at the same time they will surely be happy to beat up on the UTSA Roadrunners. Texas A&M is coming off consecutive victories over Ole Miss and Mississippi State to move two games over .500 for the first time this season. Quarterback Kellen Mond threw three touchdowns without getting picked off during this past weekend’s defeat of the Bulldogs. The Roadrunners have suffered some disastrous losses in 2019, including 45-3 at the hands of North Texas and 63-14 at Baylor. UTSA is 8-18-1 ATS in its last 27 overall, 2-9-1 ATS in its last 12 against opponents with winning records, and 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven non-conference contests. The Aggies are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 overall, 12-4 ATS in their last 16 at home, and 11-0 ATS in their last 11 out of conference. These kind of spreads are always dangerous, but lean toward TEXAS A&M.

Over Under Pick

Mond completed 17 of 23 attempts for 234 yards as Texas A&M pinned 49 points on Mississippi State. After being sacked 16 times in the previous four games, Mond was not taken down a single time. Allowing 30 points to MSU, however, is unspectacular at best. The over is 6-2-1 in the Roadrunners’ last nine non-conference games. It is also 4-0 in the Aggies’ last four at home and 6-2 in their last eight after scoring more than 40 points in their previous outing. Go with the OVER.

Against The Spread Pick

The now 14th-ranked Michigan Wolverines are coming off a very impressive victory over rival Notre Dame. In contrast, the Maryland Terrapins have continued to struggle losing their third-consecutive game since beating Rutgers, which is their lone victory over a Big Ten foe to this point. The Terps were pounded by unbeaten Minnesota this past weekend. Michigan has had its way with the Terrapins in their last four meetings. Nobody can forget the Terps lone victory over the Wolverines back in 2014 though. The Wolverines have struggled to cover on the road this season, covering the spread just once in a seven-point loss to Penn State, two weeks ago. Yet the Terrapins haven’t shown any signs that they can compete with the top teams in the Big Ten East in recent games. Though its a tough decision, backing the Wolverines to not only get the win but cover the 21-point spread is a good call.

Over Under Pick

Michigan looked dominant in their shocking 45-14 home victory over Notre Dame. Maryland was less than impressive in a 52-10 shellacking from Minnesota. The Wolverines have scored at least 21 points in each of their last three games and Michigan has found ways to put up points against Maryland in recent head-to-heads. They they have scored 35 or more points in each of the last three meetings.  They have also held the Terps to 10 or fewer points in two of the last three meetings. Both teams have favored the over in their last five games, which is why an over 56-point total isn’t out of the question. Lean the over.

Against The Spread Pick

Injuries have been a common theme for both Nebraska and Purdue this season. That could be a storyline to watch in their match-up this week, as the Cornhuskers visit Ross-Ade Stadium looking for their first win since October 5th against Northwestern. The Boilermakers have struggled for much of the season and are just 1-5 in their last six games. Nebraska has struggled on the road, losing nine of their last 10. Not to mention they have failed to cover in each of their last five games. Purdue has been able to cover the spread in three of their last four games. The games between the Cornhuskers and Boilermakers have been tight match-ups recently including a game decided by a point two seasons ago. The spread has been right around three-points in the last two meetings, and it is once again, which is why leaning Nebraska here is still a good call.

Over Under Pick

The over-under is at 58 and that seems to be a little bit of a stretch, given both the Cornhuskers and Boilermakers have been inconsistent scoring teams for much of the season. Purdue was held to just six points in their loss against Illinois, while Nebraska has scored only seven points in two of their last four games. Nebraska and Purdue have combined for just one total that was over in their last three head-to-heads. The final score has finished under the total in four of the last six between these teams. Roll with an under 58 total here.

Against The Spread Pick

The North Carolina State Wolfpack will head to BB&T Field this Saturday afternoon to duke it out against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The Wolfpack is coming into this game fresh and rejuvenated after a much needed bye week. NC State has been playing very well this season, though they looked a bit fatigued in their last game against Boston College and could not close the 24-3 halftime deficit, resulting in a loss. The Wolfpack will need to bring their A-game this Saturday though, because the Demon Deacons are no team to be trifled with. Wake Forest is currently ranked 23rd in the nation. They are one of two teams in the ACC Atlantic to be ranked, showing the difference in skill between the Deacons and the other teams in the division. Wake Forest has a real chance at the playoffs this season, and will likely already be preparing to take on teams like Clemson. The fact of the matter is, NC State shouldn’t be difficult for the Deacons to take down. To make matters worse for the Wolfpack, the Demon Deacons are also coming into this game fresh off a bye week, and will no doubt be bloodthirsty after missing a week of competition. With that said, NC has a strong defense, and a decent offense. They won’t win, but I do think they will cover.

Over Under Pick

I think this will be a relatively close game. Neither team is lacking offensively or defensively, and their bye weeks have certainly served the players on both teams well. I expect both teams to be playing at 100%. Wake forest will lead steadily, but NC will stay close behind. I think both teams will finish in the mid to high thirties and take this one over.

Against the Spread Pick

The Eagles come into this game having just got demolished by Clemson. They lost this game 59-7 and never even had a chance as most expected. They are a .500 team and two wins away from becoming bowl eligible, so they are likely to be up for this game. Syracuse on the other hand is having a terrible season, having lost three games in a row now. Their last one came to Florida State by a score of 35-17. The Eagles have covered in 5 of their 8 games so far this season while the Orange are 2-6 against the spread. Boston College may be down to a backup quarterback, but they do have an elite running back named AJ Dilllon. Boston College is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games and the underdog is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams. I will take the Eagles and the points because Syracuse has shown time and time again that they are a bad football team.

Over Under Pick

The total for this game is set around 60, but with the way Boston College runs the ball, I would lean to the under. The Eagles are averaging 255 yards per game, ranking them as the 10th best rushing offense in the country. They are also scoring 31.1 points per game. The Orange score just 23.8 points per game, so I can see them continuing to struggle. The Eagles defense is nothing special, but they still should be able to slow down the Orange who have not done much when they have the ball. I would take the under in this game, but only as a small play.

Against the Spread Pick

The Virginia Tech Hokies will head to Indiana this Tuesday to take on the Fighting Irish. Both teams have solid 5-2 records this year, but each team has spent the week prior to their matchup very differently. The Hokies are well rested and rejuvenated, having just indulged in a bye week, while the Irish are coming into this game having taken a hard loss against Michigan last week. The Hokies seem to be making some headway with regard to their overall performance this season. They were off to a relatively mediocre start, sporting a 2-2 average. However they have since won three games in a row. With that being said, the Irish have a rather bulletproof defense, which will truly test whether or not the Hokies’ have what it takes to score. Unfortunately for the Irish, their offense has somewhat defective this season. They are very inconsistent, so much so, that Virginia’s shaky defense may have the opportunity to straighten itself out. I have a feeling this will be a close game. Each team has its strengths and weaknesses, and this is one of those odd matchups where said strengths and weaknesses will sort of neutralize any major advantage or disadvantage that one team may have. Having said that, I’m taking the Irish, they smoked the Hokies last year, and though they lost their last game, they have proven capable of taking down tough squads thus far this season. The Irish should win, but the Hokies will surely cover. 

Over Under Pick

Like I said, the Irish have been struggling offensively, this in turn, should mean that the Hokies’ defense will stand a solid chance against them, and keep scoring to a minimum. On the other hand, the Irish have a decent defense. The Hokies have started to excel in recent games, but I’m reluctant to believe that they will have a high scoring game against the Irish, especially considering have things have turned out in prior games between these two teams. Take the under.

Against the Spread Pick

The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs will be battling for SEC East supremacy when they square off in Jacksonville on Saturday. Georgia is in a bit of a funk at the moment, perhaps ruing the fact that former backup quarterback Justin Fields is now starring at Ohio State. Jake Fromm has struggled, which is part of the reason why the Bulldogs lost at home to South Carolina and did not look spectacular during a win over a Notre Dame squad that just got clobbered by Michigan. The Gators have lost only to now-No. 1 LSU via a 42-28 decision. They are coming off a 38-27 victory over South Carolina in which Kyle Trask threw for four touchdowns. Florida is 4-1 ATS in its last five overall, 4-0 ATS in its last four against the SEC, and 11-5 ATS in its last 16 against opponents with winning records. Consider the six points a bonus for taking the GATORS, but at the same time take the points instead of the money line.

Over Under Pick

Fromm has thrown only nine touchdown passes in seven contests. Fortunately for Georgia, it has limited three opponents to six points or fewer and it is coming off a shutout of Kentucky. The under is 4-1 in the Bulldogs’ last five overall and 4-1-1 in their last six against the SEC. It is also 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between the two teams. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.

Against The Spread Pick

This has been a series that has been dominated by the Kansas State Wildcats, but it feels like we are entering a time when the state rivalry is going to be competitive again. The Jayhawks don’t have a great record right now, but they are being competitive and a couple of games ago they only lost by two points to the Longhorns. The defense is still struggling, but the offense is doing everything to keep them in contention and that will mean they will stay in the ballgame. I actually think the Jayhawks can pull off the upset, but I will play it safe and take the points.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is set way too low, and it should go way over this number. On the season the Jayhawks are giving up 32 points per game, and in each of the last two games they have scored at least 37 points. The Wildcats are coming into this game having just scored 48 points and they should be able to take advantage of the struggles of the Jayhawks offense. This game should be a high scoring shootout. The over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings played between the two teams in Kansas.

Against The Spread Pick

These are two teams who have struggled to be consistent this, but they are both coming ooff really big wins. TCU hosted Texas and were able to come away with a 10-point win, while the Cowboys went on the road to beat Iowa State. In this game the Cowboys are favorites, and I lean that way because of the way TCU’s offense performs on the road. Overall TCU is averaging 34.3 points per game, but on the road that number drops down to 25 points per game. That offense is going to let them down in this game, and that will lead to the Cowboys win and a cover of the spread.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I would stay away from because they are so inconsistent and how knows what offense is going to show up. With the way TCU’s offense has struggled at times on the road, that makes me lean to the under. The under is 16-5 in TCU’s last 21 road games. Under is 11-5 in Horned Frogs last 16 games on fieldturf. Back the under as a slight lean.

The Scarlet Knights were able to pick up their first victory under interim coach Nunzio Campanile as they outlasted non-conference foe Liberty for their second win of the season. Illinois followed up their upset win of Wisconsin with a victory over rival Purdue for their fourth W of the season. Rutgers could be in for another tough day, as they have been ugly away from home this season with an 0-3 road record to this point. These past three weeks, the Illini have looked like a completely different team and look to be hitting their stride at the right time. Illinois has been able to cover the spread in four of their last five games, and there isn’t much that Rutgers can show that says they will be able to cover in this one. It is a bit of a stretch for the Illini at 20 points, but Illinois is still worth it, so take the Illini with the points.

Over Under Pick

The Scarlet Knights were able to score the most points they have scored since their season-opening game, in their win over Liberty. Prior to those 44 points, Rutgers has been held to seven or fewer points in five of their last six games. Illinois has scored 24 or more points in each of their last three games. The last two head-to-head meetings have both finished with over totals, as the Scarlet Knights and Illini combined for 59 points and 55 points respectively. However, the teams haven’t looked capable of scoring at that level this season. Which is why an under 50.5 total is a good play.

Against The Spread Pick

Miami and FL State will duke it out this Tuesday to see which team will hold ACC football dominance over their home state of Florida. This will be an interesting game, as these two teams have been relatively off this season. What most would expect to be a huge game will actually be a test to see who can regain stability faster. Florida State’s offense relies heavily running back Cam Akers, who has rushed for 917 yards and 15 touchdowns. Akers finished  last week’s game against Syracuse with a knee injury but is still slated to play against Miami. Akers had rushed for four touchdowns in the game before getting hurt. The Hurricanes’ leading rusher Deejay Williams was out last week with a knee injury of his own, and Miami really felt it. Luckily he will be back for this game, but six players are listed as injured. Among them are three quarterbacks; Jarren Williams, Tate Martell and N’Kosi Perry. Williams is expected to play, but given his injury is one of the arms, he will likely not be performing at 100%. Williams has passed for 1,136 yards to lead the team this season, and he and Deejay Williams make a  fantastic duo. With an injured Jarren and a shorthanded team I expect the Seminoles to take this one, and considering how small the spread is I bet they will cover as well. 

Over Under Pick

Both teams have a record of 4-4. A win is a step toward bowl eligibility, while a loss puts them in a hole. With this in mind, I expect a hard-fought game played close to the vest. Miami’s defense is strong, but their offense is lacking. Florida State on the other hand, has a solid offense, but is weak on defense. I’m sure the Seminoles will hold up on their end and score decently. But Miami’s quarterback situation makes me think their offense do quite poorly on Tuesday. Take the under.

Against The Spread Pick

The Army Black Knights entered this season with a lot of promise and were once ranked in the top 25. Now, they must win three of their last four games to make a bowl game this season. Army comes into this game loser of four in a row, including last Saturday’s home loss against San Jose State by a score of 29-34. Meanwhile, the Air Force Falcons have been one of the most dominating teams in the Mountain West this season with a record of 6-2. The Falcons have a three-game win streak and have outscored their opponents 127 to 57 in those games. Air Force has one of the best run offenses in the country while Army is only average against the run, allowing 150.25 rushing yards per game. I look for Air Force to come away with the win in this game due to their ability to run the ball. I also am a lean on the Falcons to cover the 15.5-point spread in the game.

Over Under Pick

Air Force has one of the best scoring offenses in college football this season, ranking 19th with 36.63 points per game. Meanwhile, the Black Knights of Army have a solid scoring defense ranking 44th with 23.25 points allowed per game this season. However, Army’s offense is decent but not great as they are averaging 26.13 points per game. This week the Black Knights will be going against a stingy defense that is only giving up 21.88 points per game, which is the 36th fewest in college football. Air Force should be able to score at ease in this game; however, Army is likely to struggle. As a result, I look for the under 45.5 points to be the play in this match-up on Saturday.

Against the Spread Pick

Pittsburgh’s chances to win the ACC Coastal took a hit when they lost to Miami last week. They are now 2-2 in the division with one of their losses coming to the division leading Virginia. This is a must win for the Panthers. Georgia Tech is coming off their bye week, but they finally got back in the win column when they beat Miami two weeks ago. The Yellow Jackets chances to make a bowl game are dwindling, so this is also a game that they must win to even have a chance to play in December. Georgia Tech is 1-9 against the spread in their last 10 games overall. I think the Panthers are by far the better team and can win this game convincingly. I will take Pittsburgh minus the points to win this game by more than a touchdown.

Over Under Pick

The total for this game is set very low at 43, but there’s a reason for that. Georgia Tech has not shown they can put up a ton of points. Their highest scoring game this season was when they scored 28 on Miami. The Pittsburgh offense also is very poor, scoring just 21 points per game. The Panthers defense on the other hand is very solid, allowing 21.4 points per game. The under is 13-3 in Pittsburgh last 16 road games. The under is also 25-9-1 in the Panthers’ last 35 games overall. I will lean to the under, but this should be a very small bet.

These are two of the worst teams in the SEC, but hey…at least the Mississippi State Bulldogs have won a game! That’s more than the Arkansas Razorbacks can say, as they are 0-5 in conference play. That includes losses to Ole Miss and Kentucky, plus the Razorbacks also fell to San Jose State. They have scored 17 points in the past two contests and 37 in the past three. Quarterback Nick Starkel was picked off three times without throwing a touchdown during last weekend’s 48-7 setback against Alabama. In the 2018 head-to-head matchup, Mississippi State humiliated Arkansas 52-6. The Razorbacks are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 overall, 1-6 ATS in their last seven against the SEC, and 1-5 ATS in their last six against opponents with losing records. It is also worth noting that the favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. MISSISSIPPI STATE should be able to cover a touchdown and change.

Over Under Pick

Arkansas’ quarterback situation has featured rotating parts the entire season and nothing has worked. Three different signal-callers have combined for more interceptions (12) than touchdowns (10). MSU has been similarly unable to find the right balance under center between Tommy Stevens and Garrett Shrader. The under is 35-16 in the Bulldogs’ last 51 against the SEC and 9-2 in their last 11 following a loss. It is also 4-1 in the Razorbacks’ last five overall and 5-1 in their last six against the SEC. Count on this one staying UNDER the total.

Against the Spread Pick

The loss by Oklahoma possibly opens a door for a PAC 12 team to make the playoffs, but only if they have just the one loss. Utah is one of those teams but they are going to be entering a harsh environment on Saturday. Since their lone loss at USC they have been crushing foes, most recently shutting out Cal 35-0. They have covered in four straight while allowing a combined 23 points. You might not have noticed because they are on the West Coast but Utah is rolling right now. Washington is just 2-3 in the league so far but they have enough talent to beat any team and no program in the PAC 12 has a better coach. Put those factors together and it is easy to see why Utah could fall here. Everything just seems a notch below peak for the Huskies and they are more mistake-prone than they have been recently. They will have a good game plan and play hard but come up short in this one. Take Utah.

Over Under Pick

Utah is playing great defense and that has led to six straight unders, including last week’s under 36.5 (barely). The total is much higher this week and deservedly so with the Huskies having at least a functional offense. Utah might be inclined to get some style points if they can but I still see this one as going under. These teams met last year, twice, and both games went well under. Take that to happen again here.

The Beavers are climbing the path back to respectability, at the expense of other programs. Their last game was a win at Cal, which showed they can win ugly too. Most of the time they want to use a strong offense to outscore you and that has worked too, like when they dropped 48 and won at UCLA. Both of their conference wins have been on the road this season so visiting Arizona should not scare them in the least. They can put pressure on the Wildcats. Arizona has lost their last three games and they absolutely need this one if they want to be bowl eligible. Coach Sumlin is determined to make Kahlil Tate a thrower but he is just not accurate enough.  His mistakes are costing them games as their margins are thin thanks to a light defense. I love the Beavers offense to put on the pressure in this one. Take Oregon State on the road plus the points.

Over Under Pick

There is nothing that we have seen this season from either program to expect the defenses to win the day. That is why I am surprised that the total has come down from the opener. Tate might be benched but his backup has had success moving the team so that doesn’t scare me at all.  Both teams get 30 and maybe even 40. Take the over.

Suddenly, the Tennessee Volunteers appear to have a surplus of viable quarterbacks. That has not been the case throughout basically the entire season, but Jarrett Guarantano, Brian Maurer, and J.T. Shrout are all healthy enough and playing relatively well. Guarantano has not thrown an interception in his last four appearances (49 pass attempts). He also threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns during this past weekend’s 41-21 defeat of South Carolina. That is good sign heading into a break from SEC action when the UAB Blazers pay a visit to Knoxville. The Blazers have faced one SEC opponent in each of their two seasons since the program was resurrected. They lost to Florida by 29 points in 2017 and to Texas A&M by 20 last year. UAB is 1-6 ATS in its last seven against the SEC. TENNESSEE will likely care of business without too much trouble.

Over Under Pick

Guarantano’s touchdown-to-interception ratio this season is now a respectable 10-to-4. UAB probably won’t be able to shorten the game against what is obviously a more talented opponent because it is a modest seventh in Conference-USA in rushing offense. Quarterback Tyler Johnston III, however, has thrown multiple TD passes in three straight contests. The over is 3-1-1 in the Blazers’ last five on the road and 6-1 in their last seven against the SEC. It is also 5-2 in the Volunteers’ last seven at home. Go with the OVER.

Against The Spread Pick

Northwestern has looked far from the level they were able to reach last season, and they could be in for their worst season in years. To stop the bleeding will take a lot of effort from a team that has faced a tough schedule already. Indiana has been one of the biggest surprises to this point. Their 6-2 record is impressive, with their two losses coming against Ohio State and Michigan State. The Wildcats have had the upper hand in recent meetings with nine wins in their last 10 against the Hoosiers, but Northwestern is 0-5 in their last five games, and have only managed to cover the spread two of their last seven games. Indiana is 4-1 ATS in their last five games. The Hoosiers have been successful in covering the spread in four of their last six games against Northwestern at Memorial Stadium. Their recent record against the Wildcats doesn’t favor the Hoosiers, but Indiana is still a good call to not only get the win but cover the 11.5-point spread.

Over Under Pick

The Wildcats have been held to 15 or fewer points in each of their last five games. That also includes a shutout loss in their last game against Iowa. Indiana has been able to score 31 or more points in all but one of their games this season. That includes in each of their last five games. Two of the last three head-to-head meetings between Northwestern and Indiana have finished with over totals. With a lower over-under total of 43.5, it seems quite reachable at the rate Indiana has been able to produce points this season. So an over 43.5 total is a good call.

Against the Spread Pick

The Auburn Tigers have to hope that a reprieve from the schedule gets them back on track this weekend. Auburn is coming off three consecutive road games–including losses at Florida and LSU–and will now host the Ole Miss Rebels. Sandwiching a blowout of Arkansas, the Tigers scored only 13 points against the Gators and 20 against LSU. Ole Miss is just 3-5 this season, but for the most part the team has been somewhat competitive in the face of decent competition. The Rebels boast two 500-yard rushers in quarterback John Rhys Plumlee and running back Scottie Phillips; Plumlee is expected to play against Auburn after undergoing minor knee surgery following a 24-17 loss to Texas A&M on Oct. 19. They were off this past weekend, so the visitors will be well rested. Ole Miss is 4-1 ATS in its last five against the SEC. It is also worth noting that the road team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five head-to-head matchups. Lean toward the REBELS since they are getting so many points.

Over Under Pick

A week of rest should do wonders for Plumlee, who has eight total touchdowns (four passing, four rushing) compared to only one interception. Auburn has rushed for more than 1800 yards as a team and seven different ball-carriers have exceeded the century mark. The over is 4-0 in the Rebels’ last four against opponents with winning records and 5-1 in the Tigers’ last six after allowing more than 280 passing yards in their previous outing. It is also 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. The OVER is the play.

Against the Spread Pick

The South Carolina Gamecocks have been bad since beating SEC East rivals Kentucky and Georgia in succession; the Vanderbilt Commodores have been bad just about the whole season. Advantage: South Carolina. Gamecocks quarterback Ryan Hilinski threw for 319 yards in last week’s loss to Tennessee. Vanderbilt has played only two road games in 2019 and got blown out by both Purdue and Ole Miss. To say those aren’t great results would be an understatement. South Carolina should be playing with a real sense of urgency given that it can afford to lose only one more game this season to be bowl eligible and still has to go up against Clemson. Vanderbilt is 1-7 ATS in its last eight overall and 0-4 ATS in its last four against opponents with losing records. The Gamecocks are 4-0 ATS in their last four November outings. Lean toward SOUTH CAROLINA.

Over Under Pick

Hilinski has four straight games without throwing an interception. Unfortunately for the ‘Cocks, their defense has collapsed of late. Florida pinned 38 points on them before Tennessee went for 41. Vanderbilt has surrendered at least 30 points in all five of its setbacks, including 66 to LSU. The over is 5-2 in the Gamecocks’ last seven against opponents with losing records. The OVER is the play.

Against the Spread Pick

This game will see the Virginia Cavaliers travel to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Cavaliers have really been up and down this season and just lost to Louisville 28-21 outright as a 4.5-point favorite. The Cavs are now 3-2 in the ACC Coastal and control their own destiny. The Tar Heels are also 3-2 in the ACC Coastal after their 20-17 win over Duke. This winner of this game could potentially be headed to the ACC Championship. Two of Virginia’s quarterbacks are listed as questionable, so that alone has me hesitant to take the Cavaliers. I will instead lean to the Tar Heels to win as a small home favorite and cover the spread.

Over Under Pick

The total is set pretty low at 46.5, and for that reason, I would look at the over. Starting with Virginia, they are scoring an average of 29.9 points per game. North Carolina on the other hand is scoring 27.5 points per game. The defense for the Cavaliers is allowing just 20.8 however, which is a little concerning. The good news is the Cavs just allowed 28 points to Louisville and the UNC quarterback, Sam Howell, tends to play better at home. I think we could see a game where both teams scores in the mid to late 20’s, so I will take the over as a small play.

Against the Spread Pick

It’s not often that an 8-0 team is an underdog, but that will be the case when the SMU Mustangs visit the 7-1 Memphis Tigers on Saturday night. SMU is an absolute force on the ground. It ranks sixth (tied) in FBS with 24 rushing touchdowns while averaging 202.8 rushing yards per game. Xavier Jones (14 TDs) has reached the 100-yard mark on four consecutive occasions. Memphis is giving up 188.8 yards per game on the ground, so this does not look like an especially favorable matchup for the Tigers. SMU has scored at least 34 points every time it has taken the field in 2019–including more than 40 six times. The Mustangs are 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six against opponents with winning records. It is also worth noting that the road team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 head-to-head matchups. Get all over SMU.

Over Under Pick

SMU better score a lot, because the Tigers will likely do the same. Memphis is third in the American Athletic Conference in passing (282.5 ypg) and the Mustangs are second-to-last in passing defense (270.9 ypg). When these two clashed in Memphis two years ago, 111 total points were scored. The over is 7-1 in the Mustangs’ last eight overall and 4-1 in their last five against opponents with winning records. It is also 5-0 in the Tigers’ last five overall, 6-0 in their last six conference games, and 16-5 in their last 21 against opponents with winning records. Go with the OVER.

Against The Spread Pick

In the PAC-12, Utah and Oregon are hoping a single loss won’t keep them out of playoff consideration this season. Oregon is in danger of a second one here though as they visit USC. The Ducks have been all over teams defensively up until the last couple of weeks when both Washington teams scored in the thirties. Although they came away with close wins in both games, these escapes force you to question just how good Oregon really is. Utah has already been at USC and went home with a loss. Oregon will have to play well to avoid the same fate. USC is 4-1 in the PAC 12 South and has a lot to play for. As long as they keep winning they can stay ahead of Utah in the standings and perhaps compete for a league title. It is all about offense for the Trojans. Kedon Slovis had a great game last week against Colorado, throwing for over 400 yards with four TDs. USC is so talented at receiver it is just a matter of him working through his reads and finding the right guy. I like the Trojans to move the ball and put the heat on Oregon. They can cover the number and might win outright.

Over Under Pick

Despite being explosive on offense, the Trojans have only three overs in 8 games, two have come at home. I see them having some control in this game and that means offense to me. Look for big plays where the Ducks get close but not close enough to Slovis. Take the over. Oregon’s defense is reeling right now.

Against the Spread Pick

After a decent start, Colorado has lost four games in a row. They are probably finding their level but I thought they would be a little more competitive in doing so. They can move the ball through the air but the defense has not developed the way I thought it would, which must be killing new coach Mel Tucker too. Last week they got torched by USC. UCLA is built a little bit differently so they should be able to stay in this one on the road. UCLA is kind of turning around their season. They are not going to accomplish anything significant but they have won their last two games, both as underdogs. They have not been elite but they are playing much better defense and running the ball really effectively. It might be that Chip Kelly has to find a slightly different formula in his current incarnation in the college game. I will ride that momentum and take UCLA in this one.

Over Under Pick

If I had to wager on whether offenses or defenses will be sharper in this one I am going with the offenses. The Buffs are good at throwing the ball so even if they get down they are not out of it. UCLA has been putting up better defensive numbers of late but games against Arizona State and Stanford helped. Take the over.
