Season Record: (32-26)
Wisconsin (-24.5) vs. Northwestern
It took a while, but Wisconsin is finally finding their stride. They will roll over Northwestern.
Baylor (+5.5) vs. Oklahoma
I’ve been waiting for Oklahoma to slip up all season, and I think it finally happens this week on the road.
Auburn (-5.5) vs. Mississippi State
State has been one of the hardest teams to bet against, but I love Auburn when they are at home.

Baylor (+5.5) vs. Oklahoma
Hop on the wagon! I’m gonna be on a few home underdogs this weekend.
Ole Miss (+2) vs. Texas A&M
The Lane Train at home gets it done against a team that is significantly better at home than they are on the road.
Purdue (+21) at Ohio State
We saw last week just how good of a football team Purdue is, and I think they can keep it close against Ohio State.
Alabama (-13.5 1Q) v. New Mexico State
New Mexico State has been pretty bad this season, and I think Alabama glides through them before laying off the gas at Halftime.

Season Record (23-15-1)
Alabama (-13.5 1Q) vs New Mexico State
I may have found the bet of the weekend right off the bat. The Tide are pissed off after a lackluster performance last week and come in as a 51-point favorite. They should have no trouble scoring every time they get the ball. This should be 21-0 at the end of the first. Amazing value at only 13.5.
Ohio State (-20.5) vs Purdue
Purdue is going to be a trendy upset pick this week after their upsets of Iowa and Michigan State this year. But the Buckeyes are starting to piece it together and they’ll beat Purdue like a drum. I like them -10.5 first half, and the full game spread.
Florida State (+2.5) vs Miami
This is insane. The Canes are getting over 90% of the bets from the public after winning three one possession games in a row. The Noles are losers of two straight and everyone thinks they suck. They will get up for this rivalry game, that’s for sure. Noles win 31-27.
Ole Miss (+2) vs Texas A&M
This is copy and paste for me from the Florida State game. Texas A&M is getting a ton of public bets for this game. College Gameday will be in Oxford for a fired up Ole Miss fanbase. I couldn’t believe Ole Miss wasn’t favored, and the fact that this line hasn’t moved despite all the public bets coming in on the Aggies tells me that Vegas is confident Ole Miss wins or covers the number. Lane Kiffin wins this one.
Virginia (+5.5) vs Notre Dame
I’ve watched enough college football in my lifetime that I feel confident with this bet just off of a feeling. We have Virginia, a garbage football program for years and years who are now finally decent, against Notre Dame, the traditional college football power. Bronco Mendenhall (a top five name in college football) and Virginia finally have a big primetime game. I don’t know if they’ll win but Virginia definitely keeps it close.
