So Notre Dame is good, and this is the reality in which I must exist. This is a major bummer. LSU is officially dead to me. Florida State almost did something really awesome, but in true FSU fashion somehow found a way to screw me over. The Aggies had the ultimate back door cover by scoring a touchdown on the last play in overtime to beat the spread. TEXAS IS BACK. Great week of games.
All game lines are taken Thursday at 10:45 am CST
Game One: #23 USF (5-0) at Tulsa (1-4)
USF is only a 7 point favorite in this game. I don’t have a whole lot to say about this game, but it feels like a weird line, and I am all for weird lines.
MY PICK: USF
MY REASON: CHARLIE STRONG BACK. This one has the capacity to make me look like a fool, but somehow I think we are way past that point, so let’s roll.
Game Two: #2 Georgia (6-0) at #13 LSU (5-1)
The Tigers are coming off a loss against The Florida Gators and look to take down the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs. The Bulldogs look to maintain their undefeated record to contend for a playoff bid. The DAWGS are a 7.5 point favorite.
MY PICK: UGA
MY REASON: LSU is still dead to me. There is potential for LSU to have a major bounceback game, but I think they will still be hungover from their loss last week. I expect UGA to cover.
Game Three: #7 Washington (5-1) at #17 Oregon (4-1)
Washington opens up as a 3.5 point favorite against Oregon. Both teams have one loss and are fighting for position in the PAC 12.
MY PICK: Washington
MY REASON: Washington’s sole loss came at the beginning of the season against Auburn. Washington has looked quite strong since, and I expect them to cover against the ducks despite the fact that Oregon is at home tomorrow. Plus the game is at 2:30, which is like 8am pacific time so it’ll be too early for puddles.
Game Four: #15 Wisconsin (4-1) at # 12 Michigan (5-1)
Michigan opens up as a 9.5 point favorite against Wisconsin. The Badger’s only loss came from BYU (LOL) and Michigan’s only loss came from an undefeated Notre Dame team (BARF) in which they only lost by a touchdown.
MY PICK: Wisconsin
MY REASON: 9.5 is a lot of points. I expect this game to be close. I think Michigan will win, but not by a lot.
BONUS BET OF THE WEEK: TAKE IOWA STATE (+6.5) ON THE MONEY LINE AGAINST WVU
You’re welcome in advance.
