Just another week of pure mediocrity… Brings me to a barely above .500 record. So I’ve earned you guys like… 2 dollars. Let’s get a big week here! Also, like my NFL Spread picks, I’ll now do it in order of confidence. So the higher the pick, the more confident I am.

Record – (23-22)

LSU (-7.5) Over Arkansas – Angry Fournette? Against a team that isn’t Alabama? Yikes…

Auburn (-1.5) Over Georgia – Ah, the “We told you so bowl”. Two preseason darlings, not battling. I’ll take the home team.

Temple (-3.0) Over USF – Why does Vegas continue to disrespect Temple?

Iowa State (+14.0) Over Oklahoma State – This feels so familiar… Wouldn’t shock me if those damn Cyclones won straight up… but they should definitely do enough to make OK State fans feel nervous.

Indiana (+12.5) Over Michigan – Michigan isn’t amazing on the road… Indiana plays a lot better at home… I see a closer one here.

Michigan St. (-14.5) Over Maryland – Maryland is awful, Michigan State needs a bounce back… This feels pretty easy.

Baylor (-2.5) Over Oklahoma – Tough without Seth Russell… But I’ll still take the Bears at home.

Notre Dame (-27.0) Over Wake Forest – Wake Forest is so bad…

UNC (-12.5) Over Miami FL. – Which UNC will show up? As long as they don’t lay an egg, they should rout Miami.

West Virginia (-8.5) Over Texas – I’m trusting WVU again… At home, against this awful Texas team? They got this, right?

Mississippi State (+8.0) Over Alabama – Crazy that I’m picking against Bama, right? But Miss State has been on fire lately. At home, they should keep it within 7.

Clemson (-27.5) Over Syracuse – Big spread here… But Clemson is looking dominant… Syracuse… not so much.

Washington (+3.0) Over Arizona State – I feel like Arizona State is out to make me look dumb each week… So another loss feels appropriate.

Florida State (-9.5) Over N.C. State – N.C. state is just a weirdly mediocre team… FSU should be able to bounce back and win by double digits.

South Carolina (+7.5) Over Florida – Florida should win, but after Vanderbilt last week, it looks like they may have regressed a bit. Close game here.

Texas Tech (-5.5) Over Kansas State – Two very inconsistent teams… but Texas Tech is solid at home… They should win here.

TCU (-44.5) Over Kansas – Kansas is SO BAD. I’d never touch a spread this big… but it’s Kansas… TCU wins 70-0…

BYU (-5.0) Over Missouri – Mizzou is just… awful… BYU covers here.
