COLLEGE FOOTBALL OPPOSITE PICKS:
CENTRAL FLORIDA -11 @ Pittsburgh Most teams don’t play in one Super Bowl type of game. CF has 2 this year. Last week vst Stanford which it won by 3 TD’s & now vs. Pittsburgh. CFL knows if they want to make the FFF they HAVE to not only beat the Stanford’s & Pittsburgh’s on their schedule, they have to pulverize them to make a statement. That’s a HUGE edge for bettors as CFL won’t take their foot off the pedal late in the game up two scores. Think they can’t compete against a Power 5 school? Think again. They beat this same Pitt team by 31pts last year. They are 4-1 against Power 5 teams the last 2 years winning those games by d/d. Big letdown game for Pitt as well after facing rival Penn St. LWk. Pitt is only 10-16-1 ATS at hm, while CF is on a nice 18-8-1 ATS roll. LOVE CF laying only 11.
OPPOSITE PICK: PITTSBURGH +11
BOSTON COLLEGE -8 @ Rutgers It’s called the bounce back system. A team gets upset one week then goes on the road the next. Line seems out of whack considering what happened the Saturday before. But the team responds w/ a big win. That’s what I’m expecting out of BC. They lost to Kansas at home no less LWk. BC isn’t great, but they are better than that and they take it out against pathetic Rutgers. How bad is Rutgers you ask? Out of all their ugly #’s this might be the worst. Thrown out a game against 1-AA wannabe’s UMASS & Texas St., RU hasn’t scored more than 17pts in a game in 16 straight games. A lousy 17pts in 16 straight games. You have to go back 2 seasons ago. Meanwhile they’ve allowed 20+pts in all but 1 of those games.
OPPOSITE PICK: RUTGERS +8
OKLAHOMA ST. +6.5 @ Texas Texas was overrated heading into this season and it’s showing already with a loss to LSU. Forget this is a home game, because Texas is a money burning 9-7 SU & 6-10 ATS the last 2+ yrs at home. Mike Gundy & Okie St. might not be able to beat rival Oklahoma, but they can beat Texas. Cowboys have beaten the Horns 7 of their last 9 meetings inc: 4 in a row. LOVE Okie St. getting nearly a TD.
OPPOSITE PICK: TEXAS -6.5
WASHINGTON -6.5 @ BYU Brutal start to the season for BYU continues this week with a home game against maybe the best team in the Pac 12. This comes after BYU played USC last week, @ Tennessee the week before and rival Utah to open the season. That’s a TOUGH 4 game stretch. They have survived so far going 2-1. But both victories came in OT. They may not have the gas for this game….even at home where BYU is only 4-8 SU their last 12 games. Huskies stubbed their toe losing to Cal two weeks ago, but they rebounded with a nice 32pt win over Hawaii last week. It won’t be THAT easy this week, but Washington will win by d/d over worn out BYU.
OPPOSITE PICK: BYU +6
ALABAMA -38.5 vs. Southern Mississippi I don’t normally lay almost 6 touchdowns in a CFB game….not even w/ Bama. But I will here. Why? One, Alabama is great and SM blows Two, Alabama h/c Nick Saban is pissed off the start of this game was moved to Noon ET for TV purposes. He thinks it’s too hot to play that early. And three, this is SM’s third straight road game. So to recap, we have a superior team at home….with a pissed off coach who has a point to proof vs. a team that is playing its 3rd straight road game. Can U say 55-10? There is no reason in the world Bama at home shouldn’t just smoke S.Miss.
OPPOSITE PICK: SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI +38.5
NORTH CAROLINA -2.5 vs. Appalachian St. What’s this? NC is only a 2.5pt home favorite over Appalachian St. Are you kidding me? Is this the same NC team that beat SEC foe South Carolina? Is this the same NC team that beat ACC power Miami? Now they aren’t supposed to be able to beat little ole Appalachian St…..at home. Mack Bown didn’t come out of retirement to lose games to little sister App St. App St? Is that a website or a football team? Can I download them on my cellphone? App. St is going to beat Mich Trubisky? App St. is going to beat Julius Peppers? Is stinking App St. going to beat the greatest Tar Heel of all time…Lawrence Taylor. I don’t think so. App. St. is going to get crushed by NC. Really, how can NC be good enough to beat SC & Miami, but not stinking App St.? While NC does play Clemson next week so this could be a look ahead game. I don’t think so. If Mack wants to make a bowl game this year…and you know he does….he WILL get his guys up for this game. This is too easy. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE N.C.
OPPOSITE PICK: APPALACHIAN ST. +2.5
COASTAL CAROLINA -16.5 @ UMASS Before you say what the fudge is a “Coastal Carolina?” Consider this team is 2-1 w/ a road win at Kansas. Which I know is not saying much, but Kansas just crushed Boston College so maybe that win is more impressive than we think. Besides, this isn’t about CC, it’s an anti UMASS play. Forget the Dolphins & Jets, UMASS truly is the biggest waste of human flesh in football uniforms. How bad are they? They are 0-3 this year after going 4-8 last year. After going 4- 8 the year before. After going 2-10 the year before. 3-9 the year before…3-9 the year before & 1-11 the year before. To put that into perspective: Clemson will win more games THIS year than UMASS will have over the last 6+ seasons. And if you think they are at least covering games, think again. UMASS is a god awful 4-11 ATS its last 15 games. This team lost to my 1-AA Southern Illinois Salukies this year…by 25pts. This team lost to Rutgers…Rutgers, by 28pts. You would have to be the biggest bird brain, butt-head, pin-head, block-head, knucklehead, meat-head, Meat whistle, moron, mutton-mouth, dope, duntz, ding-bat, dirt-bag, dork, cretin, simpleton, slacky, imbecile, ignoramus, nincompoop, numbskull, jerk, jackass in the world to put American $$ on UMASS.
OPPOSITE PICK: UMASS +16.5
