Championship weekend underdog plays: Colorado +8.5 and Temple +3.
Week 13 Predictions
Week 13 Dog of the Week Plays: Michigan State +12 Lost
Week 12 Predictions
Baylor goes into this game without their starting QB and third leading rusher on the season and on a three game losing streak. It also doesn’t help the cause that top RB Terrence Williams is probable but is dealing with a knee injury. The Bears are facing an opponent who not only needs the win, but who should be highly motivated after dropping four straight to the host. Kansas State has hands down the better yards per point differential while playing arguably the tougher schedule. Play on the Kansas State Wildcats +1.5. Won
More selections may be added by Saturday at 12 PM ET.

Week 9 NCAA football Dog of the Week Picks: Texas +3.5 Won and Utah +10.5 Won.
The RedHawks started QB Gus Raglan for the first time this season and they may have found something there. Ragland wasn’t spectacular, but he was steady with two TDs and no INTs on 181 yards passing in their 18-14 win over the Golden Flashes, their first on the season. The Falcons also have one victory on the season but that came against FCS North Dakota and while they have made valent comeback attempts in their last two games, they certainly are worthy of favorite status. Play on the Miami Redhawks +4. Won
More Week 8 underdog picks: Colorado +1 Won, Utah +7 Won
The Mountaineers have played only four games this season, with three at home and on at a neutral site (FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland) making this their first true road game of the season. West Virginia’s record is a bit deceptive with their two wins coming against the 2-3 Missouri (wins against Eastern Michigan and Delaware State) and FCS Youngstown State. The next two wins were 35-32 at a neutral site over BYU who with a beat up OL out yarded them 521-481 and escaping 17-16 over K State who missed a late 43-yard field goal. They are rested having last week off but will be taking on an opponent who has yet to lose at home this season. The Red Raiders haven’t had the most difficult schedule at home this season being favored by 37.5, 11 and 27.5, but they proved up to the task covering the large spreads in all three. Motivation shouldn’t be a concern this week for Texas Tech after losing the last two against the Mountaineers and coming off of loss last week to KSU on the road. Play on the Texas Tech Red Raiders +1 Lost
The Huskies QB Anthony Maddie made his first start of the season last week at Ball State and what a start it was passing for 298 yards and running for 160 yards. The Broncos are a solid team with two wins over Big Ten squads this season and three of their five win have been by a margin of more than this week’s line. That said, Maddie’s mobility is a match up problem and that should allow NIU to stay within the 20-point handicap put on the Broncos. Play on the Northern Illinois Huskies +20 Won
Since starting the season with dominating wins over Miami (OH) and Iowa State, Iowa hasn’t looked sharp getting beat by FCS North Dakota State and Northwestern and barely getting by Rutgers. Now they hit the road to face the Gophers who are two seconds away from being 4-0? The Hawkeyes used to win the battle in the trenches out-rushing their opponent. That’s not the case this season. Iowa has been out-rushed 627 to 306 in their last three games. Play on the Minnesota Golden Gophers +1 Lost
If both teams were healthy we wouldn’t have a problem laying even 7 with the Nittany Lions, but that’s not the case. Penn State will be without two starting LBs from a group that wasn’t very deep to begin and with other depth players on defense iffy to play this game could get ugly. The Gophers run game is their strength ranking 31st in the nation with 218 yards a game on 5.0 yards per carry and we think that will be the difference maker. The Nittany Lions gave up over 300 yards on the ground in both of their losses and there is no reason to think that won’t be the case this Sat. Play on the Minnesota Golden Gophers +2.5. Loss 29-26.
More plays: Vanderbilt +10. Won
Stanford has owned this series as of late winning eight straight and some by blowout fashion like last season’s 56-35 massacre. Our feeling is that this will be the season that UCLA can turn the tables. The Bruins have lost one game this season, but we believe that is an advantage for them. They started off slow in the loss to Texas A&M but showed a lot of heart coming back from a 15 point deficit to send the game to overtime. We don’t think that there is much separation between these clubs so getting the 3 points at home offers a lot of value on a team that has shown that it doesn’t give up the fight. Take the UCLA Bruins +3 Bad beat loss 22-13. UCLA lead by 7 with under one minute left in the game.
The Eagles are 35 seconds away from being 2-0 after losing late 20-17 to the Yellow Jackets in Week 1. They out-yarded Georgia Tech by 82 in that match and won that stat easily last week out-yarding UMass by 222 in their easy 26-7 victory. They face a Virginia Tech team that blundered their way to a 45-24 loss to Tennessee last week and may be lacking in the confidence department after blowing a 14-point lead. We’ll take the points and side with a very underrated BC team. Play on the Boston College Eagles +6 Lost 49-0
Sure it’s a big drop down to UTSA from Colorado and this will be the Rams home opener, but Colorado State couldn’t extend the margin against them last season getting a slim 33-31 road win over the Roadrunners. The Rams run defense continued to be a problem allowing CU to run for 260 yards on the ground in their opener. Last season UTSA ripped this defense for 279 yards on the ground last season led by RB Jarveon Williams Sr. who picked up 170 on 13 carries. He returns as does the No .2 back Jalen Rhodes.
Take the UTSA Roadrunners +10 Won 23-14
We like the Black Kights here. They return 7 starters on offense and 9 on defense and while they were 2-10 last season, they played a lot of teams tough losing 7 games by a touchdown or less last season. Injuries were also a factor last season and come they come into this game healthy. Temple returns 6 starters on both sides of the ball, but they had some key losses on defense and will have to prove that they haven’t taken a step back this season. This is an awful lot of points to lay under those circumstances.
Take the Army Black Knights +15 Won 28-13
