Season Record (25-20)
Pitt (-9) vs. Miami
Miami burned be last week by beating NC State, but I’m still not buying it. Pitt is legit, and they should handle the Hurricanes.
Iowa (+3.5) at Wisconsin
For the life of me I cannot understand it, but Vegas has been ridiculously high on Wisconsin all season, and it’s burned them. This is another trap line they are laying out there, but there’s no way I’m not taking Iowa here with the points. This game could go either way, and it will probably be decided by a field goal.
UGA (-14) vs. Florida
I’ll take Georgia and the two scores here. I think AR15 gets the start, which could make things interesting, but he’s still a freshman going up against the best defense in the nation. That is a recipe for disaster, and Florida has had trouble stopping the run all year. Give me the Dawgs by more than two scores.
Minnesota (-7.5) vs. Northwestern
The Gophers have been playing good ball for weeks, and I expect that to continue this week against a bad Northwestern team.
Auburn (-3) vs. Ole Miss
This Auburn team is much better than people are giving them credit for, and that stadium is going to be raucous Saturday night. I think Auburn wins this one handily behind their home crowd.
Kentucky (-1.5) at Mississippi State
Total trap, but I am taking the cheese. Kentucky is legit.

Season Record (29-20)
Auburn (-3) vs. Ole Miss (Under 66)
The crowd will make the difference. Auburn is one of the toughest places to play in all of college football.
Georgia (-14) vs. Florida
I don’t love betting on my teams, but this is free cash. The Dawgs roll in a revenge game in Jacksonville.
Pittsburgh (-9) vs. Miami
I’m with Chase here. Expect Miami to follow up a big win with a dud on the road.
Wisconsin vs. Iowa (Under 17.5 1H)
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if this game was scoreless at halftime.
Virginia Tech (+4) at Georgia Tech
Larsen Griffeth’s Picks
Season Record: (19-9-1)
Tulsa -11 vs Navy
This has slowly developed into possibly my favorite pick of the week. Fresh off of a bye week, Tulsa will host Navy, who will be on only six days rest. Navy gave everything they had last weekend against Cincinnati, and I expect Tulsa’s top ten defense to stuff them.
Iowa State over 27.5 pts at West Virginia
Is Iowa State back? Let’s see if they can battle after a big win last weekend. I like this game going over, but since I think Iowa State wins, I’ll take their team total. The Cyclones have scored 28+ in four of their last five games, and West Virginia has shown they are capable of giving up big points. Only need four touchdowns to win this one.
Boston College +6.5 at Syracuse
On the surface, this doesn’t make much sense. BC has struggled the last three weeks while Syracuse has gotten better and better. I still feel like seven points is too much, though. Experts like the under, which means BC can stay in it until the end. I’ll take Jeff Hafley’s Eagles, especially with a large public percentage on the Cuse.
Auburn -3 vs Ole Miss
Has Matt Corral gotten the Heisman yet? The media has basically crowned Corral as the winner over the last few weeks, but I think he struggles here. A night time game at Jordan-Hare…that’s tough. I’m gonna follow my gut and the experts here and take Auburn.
Arizona +13 1H at USC
This is Larsen’s Statistical Play of the Week. I took Arizona 1H last week and they covered. They may be winless, but they have a tendency to fight in the first half. Arizona is 3-1 ATS 1H in conference play, with their three wins coming as a big underdog. USC, meanwhile, is 1-5 ATS 1H in their last six games. I’m gonna follow the trend.
