Season Record: 21-22
Nebraska Cornhuskers at Ohio State Buckeyes -18
Nebraska is in rebuild mood under first year Head Coach Scott Frost. This team will not always stink, but this season they do. They are going to be running into an angry buzzsaw on Saturday when they face the Ohio State Buckeyes
Defensively, Nebraska allows an average of 272 passing yards per game, which is the 20th-most in college football and could be an issue against the likes of Dwayne Haskins. Despite the loss to Purdue two weeks ago Haskins was still good throwing for 470 yards against Purdue. This will be an offensive onslaught from the Buckeyes early and late. Ohio State wants to make a statement after their upset loss to Purdue and have had a whole week to sit a stew over the loss. This will be ugly.
Ohio State -18.5
Georgia Bulldogs -9 at Kentucky Wildcats
The Georgia Bulldogs have won eight straight meetings with the Kentucky Wildcats by an average of 20 point per game. Wildcat fans should be proud of the way their team has played this season. Pulling off the victory at Mizzou in the final seconds has kept their teams SEC title dreams alive. Beating Mizzou is great but this is the Georgia Bulldogs. A team that fell just short of a National Title and knows they have work to do after suffering an embarrassing loss two weeks ago to LSU.
Any chance to a Georgia let down was wiped away two weeks ago. The Bulldogs will be gas on the pedal full adrenaline the entire night. Sophomore QB Jake Fromm will limit the turnovers and keep the ball in their hands. Georgia will stack the line to make sure Benny Snell will not be a factor. Bulldogs not only need to win but need to win convincingly.
Memphis Tigers-13 at East Carolina Pirates
This one is simple to me. I began this article when the line was a -13 fro Memphis, I have seen it go as low as -11 on some sights. This almost seems to easy, Memphis will have the best player on the field in Darrell Henderson. UCF ran wild on the East Carolina defense, look for Memphis to ride Henderson early and often.
East Carolina will get a few big plays in but they won’t be able to keep up with the Memphis offense.
Memphis Tigers -13
Boston College Eagles at Virginia Tech Hokies +2
The return of AJ Dillon has made a huge difference for the Boston College Eagles. But they have a matchup against a team that will have the tools needed to defeat them on Saturday beginning with Virginia Tech QB Ryan Willis.
Boston College’s two losses came on the road against teams that throw a bit. The Hokie O line might not be amazing, but it should be able to give Willis just enough time to operate.
The Eagles will need to create turnovers to win and that is not easy to do against Virginia Tech. The home field advantage will play a large role in this one.
Virginia Tech Hokies +2
South Alabama Jaguars at Arkansas State Red Wolves -15
I always like to pick a game no one is going to watch in case I am losing. Arkansas State can score, I have covered two games I have bet on with them. I’m gonna let it ride.
