Syracuse vs. Cincinnati
Pick: CincinnatiFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
You have to give credit to Syracuse for what it has done the last two weeks. The Orange destroyed Connecticut last Friday and then pulled out a huge come-from-behind win over South Florida this past Saturday. They hit the road once again and are actually getting fewer points this week against a team that is a lot stronger than the Bulls. Syracuse is now 4-4 on the year so a bowl game is back in the picture but this begins the stretch of three straight games against top quality opponents.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Bearcats opened the season at 5-0 but they have dropped their last two games. A loss at Toledo two weeks ago was inexcusable and then a loss at Louisville this past Thursday night hurt their chances of a possible Big East title. They had their chances to snag both of those games but just fell short and now they return home for the first of three home games in their next four where they are a perfect 5-0 on the season. The road team has won by 17, 24 and 21 points the last three meetings but that comes to an end here.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
With the last two games taking place on the road, Cincinnati should be hungry to rebound with a big win at home. Looking past Syracuse is no longer an option and with the Orange on a two-game winning streak, it definitely will not happen. The Bearcats were held to their lowest yardage output at Louisville last week as they gained just 353 yards which was 114.5 ypg less than what they were averaging coming into that game. Expect a big turnaround this week.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Syracuse has played above average in both total offense and total defense as it is ranked 24th and 40th respectively but the problem had been translating those into points. The Orange are just 72nd in scoring offense and 53rd in scoring defense and it comes down to turnovers where they are 103rd in the nation in turnover margin. Cincinnati meanwhile is allowing just over 19 ppg on the season which is 23rd in the country so even if the Orange do move the ball, don't expect to see much scoring.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Going back to the turnovers, Syracuse did not commit a single turnover in its last two games but that doesn't bode well going forward as it is 0-7 ATS in its last seven games after two consecutive game where it committed no turnovers. Also, the Orange are 4-17 ATS in their last 21 games on the road as underdogs of seven points or less while Cincinnati is 13-4 ATS in its last 17 games a home favorite between 3.5 and seven points. The Bearcats bounce back in a big way here.

Connecticut vs. South Florida
Pick: ConnecticutFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This looks like a tough spot to ask the Bulls to win by more than a touchdown. South Florida is off an absolute heartbreaker against Syracuse on Saturday, losing 37-36. The Bulls led that game by a score of 23-3 at halftime. They were still winning with less than five seconds remaining in the game until the Orange reached the end zone at the 3-second mark.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While the Bulls are surely more talented than their 2-6 record suggests, those type of losses can be difficult to immediately bounce back from, particularly when a team hasn't won for many weeks. The Bulls, who have now dropped six straight, were that close to getting the monkey off their back, only to have the win taken from them. This, after the Bulls had blown a late lead against Louisville the previous game. Again, that's a tough pill to swallow.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Huskies also lost against Syracuse last time out. However, their loss came back on October 19th, on ESPN. They've had plenty of time to "recover" and to fume about getting embarrassed on National TV.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
A look at the recent series history shows that each of the last five meetings has been decided by a touchdown or less. Those five games had scores of 16-10, 19-16, 29-27, 17-13, and 22-15. The Huskies won four of those five games outright, including each of the last three.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
While this admittedly isn't one of UConn's best teams, I feel that its a good spot and am expecting another relatively close game. Consider grabbing the points.

Pittsburgh vs. Notre Dame
Pick: PittsburghFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Notre Dame pulled off the upset on the road against the Sooners this week, and they remain undefeated at 8-0 this season. They continue to win games with their defense, despite struggling offensively. The Irish open as a huge favorite at home over the Panthers, despite the fact that both their previous two home games were very close.

It took overtime to decide a winner when Stanford came to town a few weeks back, then the Irish just squeaked by BYU the following week, winning 17-14. Offensively, Notre Dame hasn't played well enough to justify being favored by three scores.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Irish had a bit of an offensive outburst last week against the Sooners, as they won 30-13 on the road. The final score is a little deceiving however, as Oklahoma tied the game at 13-13 halfway through the fourth quarter, only to see the Irish score 17 unanswered points in the final five minutes of play.

The Irish have played five home games this year, and they have only won one of those games by more than a touchdown. That was a 41-3 blowout over Miami FL. All five of those games were low scoring affairs, with the total coming up short of the listed number.

There is no question that Notre Dame can play defense, with the #2 ranked defense in the country, allowing an average of less than 10 points per game.

Last Season the Irish went into Pittsburgh and beat the Panthers by a score of 15-12. Notre Dame has won two of the last three head to head meetings, however each of those games have been close, with the margin of victory less than a TD in each contest. All three of these games have been closely contested, low scoring affairs.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Sun Devils (5-3) have lost two games in a row after their 45-43 loss to UCLA despite being a 6-point favorite. Arizona State has played 7 of their last 9 games Over the Total after a loss. The Sun Devils have also played 6 of their last 8 games Over the Total after scoring at least 40 points in their last game. Additionally, Arizona State has played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after surrendering at least 40 points in their last game. Now they go on the road for the first time in three games to face a Beavers team that is a perfect 3-0 at home  and the Sun Devils have played 6 of their last 7 road games Over the Total against teams with a winning record at home. Oregon State (6-1) looks to rebound from their first loss of the season as Sean Mannion's four interceptions doomed the Beavers to their 20-17 loss at Washington. Mannion and Cody Vaz did combined to pass for 318 yards -- and Oregon State has played 9 of their last 13 games Over the Total after passing for at least 280 yards in their last game. Lastly, in the last 5 meetings between these two teams at Oregon State, the game finished Over the Total 4 times. Take the Over.

On Saturday, the side is #5 Notre Dame (8-0, 5-3) who is coming off a huge road win at Oklahoma. Now I’m sure many would expect a letdown by ND considering this is Pittsburgh who is 4-4 SU (5-3 ATS) this season. The opening line has dropped roughly 2 ½ points because of the early action on Pittsburgh. No matter, the Irish are too skilled up and down the line of scrimmage to be tested by the Panthers. After all, this situation is being played in Notre Dame. Plus, ND has a chance with big games ahead to end up in the BCS Championship game. They can’t afford to look bad for that matter. FINAL FORECAST: Notre Dame 34 Pittsburgh 10

The Mountaineers have had a week to recover from back to back awful losses, suffered to Texas Tech and Kansas State.  They are back in Morgantown, hosting a sinking TCU team that is still trying to get over losing its starting quarterback for the season.  I feel all the elements are present for a West Virginia blowout Saturday afternoon as QB Geno Smith and the offense get back on track. I'm calling for a big win for the home side in this matchup of the two new Big 12 teams. The only prior meeting between these teams came in a bowl game in 1984.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
TCU looks to be a sinking ship.  They too have lost back to back games following a 5-1 start as last week saw them jump out to a 14-0 lead on Oklahoma State only to allow 36 unanswered points.  This is their toughest league opponent to date.  It will also be the Horned Frogs ninth straight contest without a bye and second of back to back road games.  They are still trying to get over the indefinite suspension of former starting QB Casey Pachall.  With redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin under center, the team is just 1-3. Now, Boykin is not 100% after suffering a knee injury vs. Oklahoma State.  Note that last week was the first time in 33 games TCU was held under 20 points. That was the longest such active streak in FBS.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Scoring points has never been the issue for West Virginia, defense has.  As mentioned, they have had had a week to recover from the back to back losses to Texas Tech and Kansas State.  TCU doesn't have the horses to keep up here.  Coming out of a bye week, WVU has won 9 of 13 times coming out of a bye.  Look for QB Geno Smith to bounce back.

New Mexico State at Auburn
Pick: Auburn -22.5

It wasn't too long ago that Cam Newton was leading the Auburn Tigers to a National Championship. It has been a big comedown for Coach Gene Chezik since then as Auburn owns just a single win on the season. They will likely be taking those frustrations out on a very poor New Mexico State team here. The Aggies have yet to beat an FBS team this season, losing seven straight. This team has now given up 40 or more points to nine of their last 13 opponents, and has not scored more than 18 in any of their last five. Do the math and you’ll see that this big number stands a good chance to fall. All losses aren't created equal and six of the seven Auburn losses have occurred in the SEC where there are no easy games. The seventh loss was against Clemson. Auburn is 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games following a blowout loss by 21+ points. The last seven Aggies’ road games have resulted in a 308-100 total deficit, or by just shy of 30 per game. I look for Auburn to take their frustrations out here and duplicate those numbers.

If this game doesn't have letdown written all over it, then no game does. Let's face it? with Boston College and Wake Forest next on the docket, the Irish will be coasting until their season finale in the Coliseum. There'll be no style points to pick up with this win, either, so we'll let our database do the talking this afternoon in South Bend. For starters, it informs us that the Dame is 0-9 ATS as favorites versus Big East opposition and 2-6 SU and 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight home games versus this conference. We're also told that the Irish are 3-11-1 ATS off a SU dog win as a dog of six or more points, including 1-8-1 ATS as a favorite of 6 or more points. That ties in nicely to Pittsburgh's 4-1 ATS log as dogs of more than 15 points. And speaking of Pitt, after a rocky 2-4 start, they now need two wins in their final four games to gain bowl eligibility and figure to come with everything against this hated rival. Our database also says that the series visitor is a healthy 5-1-1 ATS. With that being said, look for the Irish fall to 0-8 ATS in Game Nine's of the season here today. We recommend a 1-unit play on Pittsburgh.

Florida Atlantic vs. Navy
Pick: NavyFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Navy got off to a very a disappointing start in 2012, opening over in Dublin, Ireland against Notre Dame, losing 50-10 (no one was aware back then, that this year’s Irish were a ‘horse of a different color’). A 34-7 ‘spanking’ at Penn St followed, before beating VMI, 41-3. The Midshipmen then held an excellent San Jose St team to just 12 points in Annapolis but Navy’s triple option was totally shut down by the Spartans, as Navy totaled only 144 yards for the game on 11 FDs while failing to score. However, has anyone noticed that the Spartans are 6-2 in 2012, losing by just THREE points at now No. 14 Stanford? Navy finally showed some life in its 28-21 overtime victory over Air Force on Oct 6 and then won a wire-to-wire game 31-13 at Central Michigan on Oct 12. Navy showed excellent balance in that game, rushing for 238 yards while freshman QB Keenan Reynolds had three TD passes plus 134 passing yards (6-of-11 without an INT). Reynolds’ start at CMU was the first by a Navy freshman QB in 21 years!. Navy’s followed with two more wins, 31-30 at home over Indiana and 56-28 at East Carolina last Saturday. The Midshipmen are now 5-3 overall and a win over Army on Dec 8 will give them the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy (Air Force has won it the last two seasons). Head coach Ken Niumatalolo experienced his first losing season in 2011, as the Middies failed to go ‘bowling’ for the first time since 2002. However, Navy is all but assured of a bowl berth in 2012, needing just a SINGLE win in its final four games. The remainder of its schedule is pretty favorable and an eight or nine-win regular season looks like a ‘lock.’ Navy hosts FAU on Saturday, the first-ever meting between the two schools. The Owls of FAU were 1-11 last season, in Howard Schnellenberger’s final season (not the way he wanted to go out). Carl Pelini, the DC at Nebraska under his brother Bo, accepted the job in Boca Raton, his first head coaching gig. The Owls opened with a 7-3 home win over Wagner but then lost SIX in a row, giving the team 19 straight losses against FBS opponents. However, the Owls (+7 1/2) ended their 14-game Sun Belt losing streak by upsetting Troy 34-27 last Saturday. QB Wilbert threw his 4th TD pass with :17 left for the win. FAU led 17-0 but Troy got a TD with 1:49 left, setting up the late-game heroics. Wilbert is completing 65.3% with 12 TD passes and just three INTs and he may just give Navy’s pass “D” some trouble. One HAS to take notice that FAU has suddenly scored 34 points in each of its last two games, while gaining 461 and 421 yards. However, Navy’s option has been reenergized by frosh QB Reynolds, scoring 31, 31 and 56 points in his three starts. He’s had six TD passes in just 29 attempts in that span (previous starter at QB, Miller, had one TD pass in 58 attempts) plus he’s run for 206 yards (68.7 per) with four TDs. The Navy running game averages 269.9 YPG on 5.0 YPC and will face an FAU team (seeing the option for the first time), which has allowed 200.5 YPG on the ground (4.9 YPG). Navy has been a poor play as home favorites (7-14 ATS sine 2007) but HOW can’t this rejuvenated offense score at will vs FAU? I’m laying the points.

Road weary Florida Atlantic is making their sixth road trip in the last eight games.  The Owls went 1-11 last year, the lone win coming in upset fashion over UAB at home.  The following week, FAU got shut out 26-0 by a 4-8 Louisiana-Monroe team.  This year, Florida Atlantic beat FCS foe Wagner on opening day.  The following week they lost by more than a TD ATS at Middle Tennessee State, beginning a string of six consecutive defeats.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Owls snapped that losing streak with a dramatic win over slumping Troy last Saturday – their game winning drive stared with just 1:49 remaining on the clock.  Carl Pelini’s squad is primed for another flat effort here – this is not a team that’s been able to build on whatever limited successes that they’ve had.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Navy is the only triple option team that Florida Atlantic will face all year.  A non-conference, late season road trip for a team that’s not likely to be well-prepared defensively here is a recipe for disaster, especially when we consider their offensive struggles – when FAU falls behind, they have no realistic shot at catching up!
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Navy has very quietly won four straight games, needing only a single win here to earn bowl eligibility; a big deal following last year’s 5-7 campaign that snapped a string of eight consecutive bowl appearances.  Frosh QB Keenan Reynolds took over the starting job three weeks ago, and Navy has scored 118 points in their last three ballgames; a far cry from the sluggish offense that managed only 17 points in a trio of September losses.  Expect a blowout!  Take Navy.

Oregon ROLLED over Colorado 70-14 last week behind 617 yards of total offense. How potent is the Oregon running game? Saturday was the 6th time in 5 years they have ran for 400 yards or more. The entire Pac 12 COMBINED has only done that THREE TIMES in the same time frame. USC on the flip side was upset by Arizona 39-36 in a game the Trojans were favored by -6.5.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Talk about a major letdown for USC this season. When college football lines were first posted in Las Vegas, the Trojans were -6.0 over Oregon and now sit at +8.5 underdogs. We do believe Oregon should be favored this Saturday, but not by no 8.5 points. Yes, the scoreboard shows an Arizona win, but USC played a VERY SLOPPY game and turned the ball over five times. In the loss, Matt Barkley threw for 494 yards in the air and the offense overall put up 618.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This is just the third time in 10 years the Trojans are in the home underdog role and we expect them to leave EVERYTHING on the field in this game. Oregon has been putting up sick numbers, but also have been playing powerhouse teams like Colorado, Washington State and Arkansas State. The deep talent on the Oregon squad will prevail at the end, but that means nothing to us if they fail to cover. This game goes down to the wire and getting +8.5 with USC is the correct side in this one.

One thing is for sure, BOTH these teams have found out what joining the Big 12 entails, and that is not the same schedule, or road trips they were making in their previous conferences, and the bar is raised across the board when facing BIg 12 opponents.  While many figured these two were front runners, I was never on board with TCU, and West Virginia has suffered the fate of facing K State at home in blowout loss already as well as Texas Tech waxing them and knocking them out of title cdontention.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
TCU has had issues all season, QB suspended / left the team who was their playmaker, their defense has not been able to overcome just 5 starters back, and major turnover issues.  Playing in Morgantown a new twist as well for the Horned Frogs this week as well.  Geno Smith will have a big day and I also think West Virginia's special teams will provide them a ton of field position as well.   Baylor scored 63 in here, and K State 55 and their defense allows 493 yards a game and TCU allows just 333 yards.  West Virginia has failed to cover their last 5 games at home and TCU is going to make a game of this, But TCU's QB Boykin is nursing a bad kneee but will play, and their WR Carter is out this game as well.   After being outscored 114-28 and losing 2 in a row, with a week off, look for West Virginia at home to win a tight one, TCU cannot be trusted here and gave up 92 points in their last 2 games.  The line dropped from 6.5 to 5, getting us off that fall number of 6 and I see WV winning by 10+.

The Maryland Terrapins have had the worst luck at quarterback that I've ever seen this season. They have lost their top four quarterbacks to injury, and now they are down to their 5th stringer. That just so happens to be freshman linebacker Shawn Petty, a former high school QB who switches over to the other side of the ball this week.

Senior C.J. Brown was injured during non-contact drills and suffered a torn ACL in August. Freshmen Perry Hillis and Caleb Rowe were also lost for the season recently with torn ACL's. Devin Burns went down in a 20-18 loss to North Carolina State on October 20th. That leaves Petty, who really stands little chance of having much success Saturday.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Georgia Tech has certainly underachieved this season, but it should have no problem winning by double-digits against a Terrapins team that will not be able to move the football. Maryland ranks 115th in the country in rushing (91.4 yards/game), so it hasn't been able to move the ball on the ground. That's not good news given its QB situation.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
The Yellow Jackets have had no problem moving the ball and scoring points this season. They are averaging 35.1 points while ranking 29th in the country in total offense (455.1 yards/game). Sure, their defense has been sub-par, but that should be a non-factor against a 5th string QB and a terrible Maryland rushing attack.
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Maryland is 0-7 ATS off a loss against a conference rival over the last 2 seasons. The Terrapins are 1-11 ATS after 1 or more consecutive straight up losses over the last 2 seasons. Maryland is 0-8 ATS after 2 or more consecutive straight up losses over the last 2 seasons. The Terrapins are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. very good offensive teams - scoring 34 or more points/game. Bet Georgia Tech Saturday.

FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
This is a huge rivalry game that has led to the home team winning over the last 9 meetings. Western Michigan has only won one time in Mount Pleasant since 1973. This year was supposed to be their best shot, but they've gone 1-4 since their star QB went out with an injury and Alex Carder is doubtful again Sunday. Tyler Van Tubbergen is 1-4 as a starter and has thrown 10 interceptions. That will fall into the hands of the Chippewa's because they just don't have the talent to stop opposing offenses. So what they have been doing is selling out playing aggressive defense and trying to force turnovers. Well Western Michigan has 15 interceptions and 8 fumbles lost on the year while Central Michigan is +3 in turnover margin. So the mistakes will be there for the Chippewa's. However..
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
Don't sleep on their offense. They too are led by a senior QB in Ryan Radcliff who is having a good year. He struggles a bit when he's pressured, but Western Michigan has a 3.97 sack % on the road and Western Mich should struggle against a team that does have balance. Zurlon Tipton has to touch the ball 20+ times in this game. He's a physical back leading the MAC in yards per carry at 6.5 and has 871 yards. Western Michigan has struggled defending running backs like this and I see them struggling again. At the end of the day without Alex Carder Western Michigan won't have the leadership to win this type of rivalry game. Their QB's have completed just 54% of their passes for 4 TD and 9 interceptions in road games this year.

Accuscore

Indiana -1.5 vs. Iowa

This is a match-up of two bad teams, but Indiana has the advantage being at home, and having the one solid unit on the field. The Hoosiers have the best passing offense in the Big 10 which translates to the second best offense, and third best scoring offense. Iowa’s defense is middle of the pack in the conference, but is just ninth in pass efficiency defense. Indiana’s strength lines up perfectly against Iowa’s weakness. Iowa also has an extremely poor offense ranking 105th in the NCAA in scoring, and it will be without leading rusher Mark Weisman. Indiana wins nearly 63 percent of simulations covering the spread nearly 60 percent of the time as well. There is also a 40 percent chance of a double digit win for IU.

Penn State -3.5 at Purdue

Penn State is winning simulations 66 percent of the time by more than 7 points on average. It is projected to cover the spread 58 percent of the time, and wins by double digits 45 percent of the time. The Nittany Lions flat out are the better team, and have proven to be a well-coached bunch. It’s hard to undersell how good a job Bill O’Brien has done thus far in an impossible situation. Purdue has lost four straight games, and is struggling to score points. Penn State again has a very solid defense, and the offense has been competent enough to take advantage of field position.

Oregon -8.5 at USC

This line opened at -7 or even -6 at some places, and has continually gone up as money pours in for the Ducks. The line was set incorrectly as even at -8.5 or -9, almost all the money is still with the Ducks. I like Oregon as well for a multitude of reasons as sims have Oregon winning by 10 points on average. USC has both depth and penalty issues, particularly on defense. Both of these things are exacerbated when playing teams that play uptempo, and no team plays at a lightning pace quite like Oregon. The Trojans are appear to be a soft team mentally based on their quotes after both their losses this season. Players talked about how they weren’t ready for either game, and weren’t prepared. In both games I thought they didn’t quite know how to react to being down on the scoreboard after the entire offseason was built around how invincible the team was. USC also has yet to beat a team that currently has a winning record. Oregon is steamrolling towards the BCS championship, and this is likely the first game Chip Kelly will stay on the accelerator into the fourth quarter.

Tulane +5.5 vs. Rice

Here’s a case of two terrible teams playing each other. The computer however has these squads relatively equal in their terribleness with Tulane winning at home 50.2 percent of the time yet getting 5.5 points. I have only seen Rice play once, and have not seen Tulane all year. This is purely a small computer value play based on the fact that a certified bad team in Rice is giving nearly six points on the road.

My first note is that my power ratings that I make a week in advance have the Ducks 4.5 points better than USC at this venue. 3-4 points off a number is a decent-sized difference at this point of the season. USC snapped Oregon's 21-game win streak last season with a 38-35 win and the stats were just as close as the final score. USC has blue-chip athletes, galore...just like Oregon. There isn't much of a difference in talent level, although Oregon may have a depth advantage. I went against USC last week in their loss to Arizona, a game USC looked comfortably in control of in the second half. But five turnovers and no less than four empty trips inside the Arizona 35 yard line was too much for USC to overcome. This week, they expect to have OT Walker back on the field and that gives the o-line a huge boost. They're healthy up front and their stats are on par with last year's squad, give or take a few yards. In fact, Lane Kiffin says the only real difference between this team and last year's version has been dumb mistakes and penalties. I believe the focus they'll have for this one will keep the Trojans on track throughout the contest. USC is on a 16-6 ATS run off a SU loss. I believe the value lies with the home dog and I'm recommending a play on USC plus the points.

Prediction: ColoradoFOR FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
FOR THE LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE SERVICE PLAYS VISIT THESPREAD.COM
10* graded play on Colorado as they host Stanford set to start at 2:00 PM ET. The simulator shows a high probability that Colorado will lose this game by fewer than 22 points. I just don't see the Cardinal as good as the media proclaims they are. They gave up 48 points in a 54-48 win over Arizona and allowed 491 passing yards. Just last week, they had to fight to defeat Washington State 24-17 installed as 25 point favorites. They also allowed a whopping 401 passing yards as WSU completed 43 passes on 61 attempts with just one turnover. The Cardinal offense is just not a solid consistent unit. They rank 62nd nationally scoring 27 PPG, 64th averaging 365.5 YPP, 50th averaging 0.399 points-per-play, 68th averaging 5.4 yards-per-play, 100th converting just 34.5% of their third downs, and 90th scoring on 76% of their red zone possessions. Colorado is certainly worse based on the rankings, but we are getting 27+ point to assume the risk of an offensive unit that is not much worse than the Cardinal. The defense is where the disparity arises and is certainly in Stanford?s favor, but only on the ground game. Stanfords pass defense is extremely poor and rank 85th in the nation allowing a 62% completion percentage, 123rd facing an average of 46 pass attempt per game, and 112th allowing 287 passing yards per game. Stanford has not reason to try and run the score up, and no reason to take chances unnecessarily on both sides of the ball that would lead to miscues and turnovers. This, in my mind, means that the Cardinal defense will give the underneath routes to Colorado and then tighten up in the red zone. The mission is not to give up a big offensive play and this is what will keep the Buffalo quite competitive in this game. Take the Buffalo.
