COLLEGE FB OPPOSITE PICKS: 5-2
1. SOUTHERN MISS +30 vs Miss St
What in the world is going on...MST is a 30pt fav? This isn't Alabama, Auburn, LSU
or even Georgia. It's stinking Mississippi St. for goodness sakes. I know S.Miss blows
but you're giving me 30pts? This is an in-state rivalry game. You NEVER, EVER, EVER
lay that kind of wood in an instate rivalry game. Todd Monkon returns all the key players
from last year who are only going to get better as he started 8 freshman inc: their QB.
They also return their two best defensive players who missed nearly all of last year.
Listen, SM isn't great and doesn't figure to win...but 30pts...4TDs plus? I LOVE SM.
OPPOSITE PICKS: MISSISSIPPI ST. -30 = WINNER


2. GEORGIA -7.5 vs Clemson
Mighty SEC needs to flex it's muscles here. Georgia can't afford to lose at home to an
ACC team that has to replace 56-hundred of the 68-hundred yards it amassed last year on offense.
Gone are Boyd & Watkins...in are newbies who figured to get blasted by Georgia. Bulldogs
are only 7-15 against ranked teams over the last 5 years, but Clemson has no business being
ranked. By season's end they won't be. Bulldogs circled this game after losing a shootout
out 38-35 @ Clemson to open last year. LOVE playing on teams with a chip on its shoulder.
They want to win...and win BIG. No calling off the dogs when they are up 14 and lose with
the back door cover. Georgia wins 37-17
OPPOSITE PICKS: CLEMSON +7.5 = LOSER


3. WASHINGTON -17 @ Hawaii
I don't normally lay 17pts on the road with a non-top 10 team. But I will here as
teams have been "chowing" down on Norm Chow and the Rainbows the last two years. He's
won just 4 games in 2 seasons and things don't figure to get any better this year.
Hawaii's lost 10 games by 17pts or more the last 2 seasons. This team BLOWS. Chris
Peterson debut at Washington so you know the Huskies are going to be pumped for this game.
And if that's not enough...know Washington has outscored Hawaii 172-37 in their last 4 games.
That's an average of 43-9...34pts differential. Now all I have to do is lay 17? I LOVE
Washington tonight.
OPPOSITE PICK: HAWAII +17 = WINNER

4. FLORIDA ST. -18 vs Oklahoma St.
Oh, this is too easy. Florida St. crushed their opponents last year so why should this
year be any different? In fact, FSU won every regular season game except 1 by 28pts or more.
Now all I have to do is lay 18 vs. a Okie St. team that has to replace 7 starters on defense.
Oh, the boys in Vegas are saying "here fellas, here's a freebie on us to start the season
as we're only going to whack you later on anyway." The Seminoles were a covering machine
last year going a solid 10-3 ATS. No way in the world will Oklahoma St. hang with FST.
OPPOSITE PICK: OKLAHOMA ST. +18 = WINNER

5. WISCONSIN +5 vs LSU
Overrated SEC is showing again with this line. Wisky has a rock solid team with perhaps the best running back in the nation in Melvin Gordon. Expect to see Gordon left...Gordon right...Gordon
up the middle. Auburn defense has never been able to stop Alabama's vaunted running game and
they won't stop Wisconsin. A bunch of big white farm boys are going to stomp on LSU. For
all the success LSU has had, the Tigers are only 5-9-1 ATS their last 15 games. Much like
Oklahoma St., LSU was crushed with graduations...gone are their NFL caliber QB, 2 WR's and
RB, along with their two best players on defense. Tigers can reload, but not against
Wisconsin which will win this game outright!
OPPOSITE PICK: LSU -5 = LOSER


6. UTAH ST. +5 @ Tennessee
Chuckie Keaton...no relation to Michael Keaton--what ever happened to him? Hasn't done a
movie in a long, long time. Anyway, remember Chuckie Keaton because he'll be in the
Heisman Trophy race by season's end. The Aggies star QB missed 7 games last year with a
broken leg. Utah St. is America's best kept secret. They are 25-8 SU their last 33 games
with the 8 loses coming by a combined 48pts. So they either win...or lose by a little, hence
their amazing Vegas burning 18-6 ATS mark over their last 24 games. Big bad Tennessee meanwhile
is a 8-13 ATS its last 21 games inc: 3-6 as a favorite. Oh by the way, Tennessee returns 0
starting lineman. That's right 0, zilch, nada, zippo, zero starting offensive or defensive
lineman. And oh by the way Tennessee is 1-22 SU against ranked opponents. Now Utah St. isn't
ranked, but it does tell you how outmatched Tennessee is against good opponents. LOVE, LOVE
LOVE Utah St. here.
OPPOSITE PICK: TENNESSEE -5 = WINNER

7. NEW MEXICO -7.5 vs UTEP
New Mexico is starting to become a half way decent football team with former Notre Dame
man Bob Davie at the helm. They actually won 3 games last year. I know that doesn't sound
like a lot, but that's one more than the Minors. And one of those wins was a 7pt decision
@ UTEP. But regardless, this is more an anti Texas El Paso pick then it is a pro New Mexico
pick. Utep is not only bad on the football field...they are bad on the Vegas board as well.
Utep is a mind blowing, your bookie won't take your call, your computer will freeze 6-23 straight
up and 6-23 ATS its last 29 games....6-23 I mean you would have to be the biggest bird brain,
bozo, buffoon, ding-bat, dirt-bag, knucklehead, meat-heat, moron, mope, dope, lacky, jack-ass in the world to put American $$ on UTEP.
OPPOSITE PICK: UTEP +7.5 = WINNER
