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 had a great week last week, going 7-3, and I’m hitting 58.3% on the season (63-45-2), so heed my advice!
UCLA -3 vs. Washington
I see this game as being a bit of a shootout, with Hundley and Crew coming out on top with a great second half.
UCLA 41, Washington 31
Ohio State -33.5 at Illinois
The Buckeye offense will continue to be in juggernaut mode, with Braxton Miller playing like the Heisman candidate he could’ve been.
Ohio State 56, Illinois 17
Stanford -4 at USC
The Cardinal front seven will be too much for the USC offensive line and Cody Kessler will struggle, resulting in another smothering win for Stanford.
Stanford 23, USC 9
Kansas State -11 vs. TCU
Kansas State has things figured out and is playing as well as anyone in the Big 12 right now. This should be another fine game for Sams and Waters and the Wildcats roll.
Kansas State 38, TCU 21
Miami -3.5 at Duke
The Hurricanes won’t have Duke against Duke, but they will have Stephen Morris, who should have a huge game and get Miami back on the winning track.
Miami 34, Duke 23
Vanderbilt -13 vs. Kentucky
Another scrappy win for the Commodores thanks to a big game from the defense and steady running from Jerron Seymour.
Vandy 31, Kentucky 14
North Carolina +1 at Pittsburgh
Marquise Williams continues to play well and leads the Tar Heels to their fourth-straight win.
North Carolina 27, Pitt 23
Central Florida -17 at Temple
Too much Blake Bortles for the Owls as the Knights roll.
Central Florida 45, Temple 21
South Carolina -12.5 vs. Florida
This one could get ugly as the Gators will start freshman Skyler Mornhinweg at quarterback on the road. Mike Davis plows his way to 100-plus yards and the Gamecocks cruise.
South Carolina 42, Florida 10
West Virginia -7 at Kansas
The Mountaineers crawl closer to bowl eligibility by beating the Jayhawks on the road. Should be a productive day for Paul Millard.
West Virginia 48, Kansas 28
Baylor -27.5 vs. Texas Tech
Texas Tech’s collapse continues as Bryce Petty throws for 300 plus yards and accounts for at least four TDs as Baylor moves to 9-0.
Baylor 66, Texas Tech 31
