Our run of three consecutive weeks came to a halt last week as we went 7-8 Against the Spread, but…we are 36-27 ATS over the last four weeks. Less games on the schedule in Week 10 yet we would bet on a turtle race if they had them.
Record ATS: 66-68
Saturday, Nov. 2
#14 Michigan (-21.5, 56) @ Maryland
Scoop: Remember when Maryland was ranked after starting the season 2-0. Yeah, they are 1-5 since. Bounce spot for Michigan after beating Notre Dame? No way, not only will they roll, they may score 56 by themselves.
Play: Mich -21.5 & Over 56
UTSA @ Texas A&M (-38, 53.5)
Scoop: The Aggies have quietly put together two decent SEC wins against Miss and Miss St and UTSA is a hot mess. Aggies will score points before heading into their final BYE week.
Play: TAMU -38
Liberty (-23.5, 69) @ UMass
Scoop: Both of these bad football teams love to score points. Last year, UMass won 62-59. All in on the over.
Play: Over 69
Nebraska (-4, 57) @ Purdue
Scoop: Purdue is dealing with a lot of injuries, nonetheless, Nebraska put 31 on Indiana last week and haven’t been able to stop anyone. Need Purdue to score 2 touchdowns and we can get this over.
Play: Over 57
Houston @ UCF (-22, 71)
Scoop: We know UCF is going to put up points, especially since Houston has beaten them the last two meetings. UCF put 63 on Temple last week, who has a better defense than Houston.
Play: Over 71
Boston College @ Syracuse (-3.5)
Scoop: Syracuse has last 3 in a row and is giving points? I know BC got blasted by Clemson last week, but damn.
Play: BC +3
TCU @ Oklahoma St (-3, 59)
Scoop: TCU whipped Texas last week and OK St had a big home win vs. Iowa St. The Horned Frogs play better when their backs are against the wall and they are getting points here.
Play: TCU +3
Miami FL @ Florida St (-3, 49.5)
Scoop: What the hell has happened to this rivalry? Joke.
Play: Under 49.5
Arkansas St (-1, 67) @ UL Monroe
Scoop: Arky St is a 9-0 ATS in the last 9 meetings with Monroe.
Play: ASU -1
Akron @ Bowling Green (-5, 51)
Scoop: Akron has been outscored 76-3 over the last 3 weeks. While BG has won just 2 games, they are licking their chops here.
Play: BG -5
FAU @ Western Kentucky (-1.5, 51)
Scoop: FAU put up 21 on Ohio St and have won the last 2 in this series.
Play: FAU +1.5
Pitt (-7.5, 43) Georgia Tech
Scoop: Hoping that both teams will sustain long drives. 43 isn’t a lot, so we are going to need some defense to be played but I like the under in this spot.
Play: Under 43
Tulsa @ Tulane (-10.5, 60)
Scoop: Both teams have been scoring points as of late… I really like Tulane in this spot, but rather gamble on the total.
Play: Over 60
#22 Kansas St (-5, 54.5) @ Kansas
Scoop: KSU has beaten Texas Tech and Oklahoma the last 2 weeks. I know Les Miles will have the Jayhawks pumped, I still believe KSU covers late and keeps their hot play rolling.
Play: KSU -5
Army @ Air Force (-15.5, 45.5)
Scoop: Both teams run the same offense.
Play: Under 45.5
Texas St @ UL Lafayette (-22, 55.5)
Scoop: Texas St has won 2 games this season and 1 was against a FCS team. UL will lay the wood to the lowly Bobcats.
Play: UL -22
#15 SMU @ #24 Memphis (-6, 71)
Scoop: ESPN College Game Day will be at the Liberty Bowl for this one. Memphis is so damn good at home, but we will play the over 71 points.
Play: Over 71
BYU @ Utah St (-3.5, 50)
Scoop: BYU has burned me all year, even when I played against them…So, I’m back on the Cougars especially since USU was waxed last week at Air Force.
Play: BYU +3
Central Michigan +1.5
Mid Tenn -3.5
