Season Record: 20-14

Texas (+3.5) v. Oklahoma

Frankly, Oklahoma hasn’t been playing well, and Texas has. In a rivalry game that’s pretty much a toss up, give me the hot hand. The public is all over Texas, which makes me nervous.

Georgia (-9.5 1H) @ Auburn (u15.5)

I haven’t seen anything from Auburn to inspire any confidence they can beat Georgia, except they’re playing at home. Stetson Bennett handled Auburn last season pretty easily, and this is a better Georgia team on defense. Hopefully, Georgia can get the run game going. Georgia State ran for 267 yards, and Georgia should look to do the same. Georgia covers in the first half, and Auburn doesn’t crack 15.

Alabama ( 1H 10.5, -17.5) @ Texas A&M

I don’t know if Texas A&M can keep pace with Alabama, even at Kyle Field. I think Saban makes a statement after Jimbo’s comments earlier this offseason

Michigan (-3.5) @ Nebraska

I’m not drinking the Michigan Kool Aid… yet. Nebraska has covered at a pretty good rate this year (5-1 ATS), but I think Michigan is going to win fairly easily. If not…

Season Record (17-15)

Georgia (-15.5) at Auburn (Team Total Under 15.5)

Don’t buy the Auburn hype after a flukey win over an average LSU team. UGA will completely shut down a bad Bo nix much like they did Arkansas. Lay the points, bet Auburn’s team total under.

Alabama (1H -10.5, -17.5) at Texas A&M

This could be a total trap, and it’s at Kyle Field, but you can’t stop me from taking the cheese both ways. I believe Texas A&M is the worst team in the SEC West. There’s no reason this game should be within 28 points.

Iowa (-1.5) vs. Penn State

Iowa at home against good teams is a nearly impossible place to play. Only the great ones can win. Penn State is not a great team by any means. They get exposed this week.

Season Record: (12-16)

UGA (-15.5) at Auburn (Under TT)
Bo Nix is a bad quarterback that LSU made look like prime Johnny Manziel. Last week, I believed in Arkansas to make the game competitive, but this Georgia team is the real deal. Auburn’s only chance of making this close is if they can stop UGA’s rushing attack, which I don’t see happening. I would also say to take Under Auburn’s team total.
Texas (+3.5) vs Oklahoma (Over 63.5) 
Spencer Rattler isn’t as bad as opposing fans make him out to be, but Steve Sarkisian has this Texas team playing great football. I do think the Sooners score plenty, so I’ll take the over, but they won’t be able to slow down Casey Thompson.

Season Record (9-3)

South Carolina +10.5 @ Tennessee

Everyone was surprised with what Tennessee did last week to Missouri. With that being said, this line is a total overreaction. Neither of these teams are that good, and this game should stay close.

Oklahoma -3.5 vs Texas

Here’s a fact: the Texas defense is really bad against explosive plays. The public is heavily betting Texas, and the experts are heavily betting Oklahoma. In a game that I think is a toss-up, I’ll trust the guys in Vegas. This one is easy.

Virginia Tech +1 vs Notre Dame

Another “fade the public” game for me. Notre Dame showed last weekend that they struggle with physical defenses, and I still think they’re a little overrated. Experts are heavy on the Hokies at home, and I’m gonna follow them.

Wisconsin under 26 points

Like I said last week, this Wisconsin team has shown they cannot score. In real games: 17, 13, and 10 points. And now they face a tough Illinois defense in a game that is destined to go under. I’ll keep betting Wisconsin team total unders until it burns me.

Alabama -10.5 1H @ Texas A&M

You make money betting on Alabama, it’s that simple. And Jimbo’s Texas A&M team seems to be getting worse as the weeks go on. The public is all over Alabama, which is a little frightening, but I’ll take them in the first half.

Penn State @ Iowa, under 42

This one looks too easy. Usually, I try and stay away from bets like these that look easy, but come on. Two offenses that don’t score much (Iowa’s is awful), and two defenses that don’t give up much. It’s a 20-17 type of game.
