Time to reveal my plays of the week. These are the 10 games I would bet on if I were a degenerate gambler. For those who don’t know already, the first team listed is my pick, unless it’s an over/under selection. Odds provided by DocSports. If I were you, I’d bet on these games. You can thank me (or hate me) later. I went 6-4 last week so I’m hitting 57% on the season (40-30), so heed my advice!
Oregon State -11 at California
The Bears are reeling and the Beavers are rolling right now. Expect more of the same on Saturday
Oregon State 56, California 24
Missouri +3 vs. Florida
No one knows much about Maty Mauk, but the guy can throw. I think Mizzou doesn’t skip a beat with him in the lineup this week and the Tigers get the mild upset.
Mizzou 24, Florida 17
Baylor -33 vs. Iowa State
The Bears get that incredible offense back on track at home against the Cyclones. Huge game for Lache Seastrunk.
Baylor 63, Iowa State 21
Oklahoma State -7.5 vs. TCU
The Horned Frogs continue to struggle and OSU finally gets its offense back on track.
OSU 35, TCU 21
Utah +4 at Arizona
Utah keeps its momentum going after last week’s upset of Stanford, slows down Ka’Deem Carey in outright win.
Utah 31, Arizona 27
Ohio -16 at Eastern Michigan
The Bobcats bounce back from last week’s loss to Central Michigan with a good all-around effort vs. Eastern.
Ohio 38, EMU 17
Maryland -6 at Wake Forest
The Terps get CJ Brown back and Stefon Diggs has a big game as Maryland rolls.
Maryland 31, Wake Forest 17
Ohio State -18 vs. Iowa
The Buckeyes are well-rested after a bye week. Braxton Miller with the monster game as OSU takes it to the Hawkeyes.
Ohio State 45, Iowa 17
Georgia -6.5 at Vanderbilt
The Bulldogs bounce back after the upset loss to Mizzou as Aaron Murray comes through once again.
Georgia 27, Vanderbilt 17
OVER 63.5 Florida State at Clemson
Not sure who will win this one, but I think points will be scored a-plenty. Let’s give the edge to the home team in a barn burner.
Clemson 41, Florida State 38
Stanford -4.5 vs. UCLA
Lots of people picking the Bruins in an upset, but Stanford’s defense is too good (and proud) to get taken advantage of two weeks in a row. Stanford gets serious and comes away with the solid win.
Stanford 34, UCLA 24
