Baylor vs. Oklahoma St
Play: Baylor -10

Have any doubts about Baylor, they are the #1 offense in the land, unstoppable and Okie States defense is not all that good. Easy trap line to take a double digit home dog with 1 loss with a conference title on the line here, but that in fact is the case. Okie States offense has struggled, their QB is average at best and they will not run it at all with the Baylor air attack and ground attack (both average over 300 yards) having them playing catch up. Baylor played K State on the road and won by 10 in their worst effort of the year, but K State is more physical than Okie State. They kicked the crap out of Oklahoma, and Okie State is slightly better than Oklahoma. Baylor needs style points and a signature win, this is their chance, and they are vastly better coached than OSU.

Texas-San Antonio vs. North Texas    
Play: North Texas -7

UTSA is 5-5 SU and 5-4-1 ATS after a 10-7 home win over Tulane. Brandon Armstrong had 77 yards rushing and a TD to lead the way. QB Eric Soza completed just 10-of-25 passes for 183 yards. Tulane actually outgained the Roadrunners 348 to 315 on the night. UTSA had four total turnovers in the game. North Texas is 7-3 SU and 8-2 ATS after a 41-7 destruction of UTEP at home. Brandin Byrd rushed for 202 yards and a pair of touchdowns. North Texas piled up 471 yards of total offense, including 317 on the ground. North Texas is a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS at home this season. The Mean Green has won five in a row coming into this game. UTSA is 0-3 ATS when playing teams with a winning record. This game really means something for the Mean Green as the team is a half game ahead of Rice at the top of the C-USA conference. I expect the Mean Green to continue to roll at home and easily win this game, covering the spread in the process.

Jesse Schule

SMU vs. South Florida    
Play: SMU -4

The South Florida Bulls only have two wins on the season, and they've looked really bad the last two weeks with Mike White at quarterback. The Freshman was picked off four times, completing just 18-of-33 attempts for 198 yards in a home loss to Memphis last week.

The Bulls have just one win in their six home games, and it was a shocker over the Cincinnati Bearcats. They were catching the Bearcats just days after losing a teammate in a car crash, and the Cincinnati players likely had more on their mind than football.

The South Florida defense will have it's hands full with SMU, the Mustangs rank 5th in the nation in passing, and Garrett Gilbert has thrown 10 touchdown passes without a single INT the last three weeks.

The Mustangs are likely to put quite a few points on the board, leaving the Bulls trying to keep up. There is no denying SMU's defensive shortcomings, but the Bulls may not have enough skill on offense to capitalize.

We're only asked to lay a few points with the road team here, and I see the Mustangs winning by at least a TD.

Strike Point Sports

Vanderbilt (+3) over Tennessee

It’s rare when these two in-state rivals meet this late in the season, and it’s the Commodores who are the better team with more going for them. Vandy is already bowl eligible, but if you think this program, which has been longing for success for decades in the SEC, is going to let up, you have another thing coming. And certainly not at the expense of their rivals the Vols. UT is 4-6 on the season and really without much hope. Vanderbilt would like nothing more than to seal a losing season for their Knoxville rivals and in the process boost their bowl resume. The better team is catching the points, so take the field goal and Vandy in Neyland Stadium.

Will Rogers

Hawaii vs. Wyoming
Pick: Hawaii

The Hawaiian Warriors are still looking for their first win of the season, coming into Wyoming with a record of 0-10. The Warriors haven't been quite as bad as you would think, and you could say that they've been playing a lot better than Wyoming in the last few weeks. I like the Warriors as an underdog against a Cowboys team that's been brutal, losing four in a row.

Here are my keys to the game:

1: Brett Smith - The Cowboys quarterback got off to a good start this year, but he's thrown more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (5) while losing his last four starts.

2: Sean Schroeder - The Warriors quarterback completed 29-of-33 attempts for 246 yards and three touchdowns in his last start on the road, a 42-28 loss to Navy.

3: X-Factor - The Cowboys defense has allowed a total of 199 points over it's last four games, two of those at home.

Texas A&M / LSU Over 73

If you like scoring this is your game of the weekend. If Texas AM had ANY defense what so ever they would be undefeated and Johnny Football would be a clear cut favorite to repeat as the Heisman Winner again. Kevin Sumlin continues his reputation of a high flying offense with no defense, just like at Houston. LSU with Cam Cameron at offensive coordinator has turned around the paltry LSU offense from last year, but LSU is a second tier team this season, bested by Alabama again, and quite frankly they are way too inconsistent to be considered the nation’s elite this season. Texas AM relies SOLEY on offense to win games, and that puts them in the same category in my opinion

This game boils down to one simple fact. Who has the ball last. Both Mettenberger (sore knee but will play) and Manziel are studs, and both offense’s will flourish. Texas AM is going for 11 in a row to score 41 or more in a game. Bear in mind the LSU vaunted defense in 2 big time SEC games with Georgia and Alabama gave up a total of 82 points and Texas AM is every bit as good as those teams on offense, maybe better. Texas AM cannot stop grandma pushing the grocery cart down the isle at Costco, so do not over think this one, it is a good old fashion SEC nighttime shootout down in Dixie. A&M rank 3rd in total yards on offense and 106th in total yards allowed on defense. Enough said.

AC Dinero

BYU vs. Notre Dame
Play: Notre Dame

Senior day for the Fighting Irish, who also come in off the bye. It has been a somewhat disappointing season for Notre Dame, so look for a big effort here prior to the finale against Stanford. The front 7 is still pretty good, and the Irish have shown the ability to hit some plays in the passing game, at 8.0 ypa. Meanwhile, BYU is already locked into a bowl game, so the motivation may be lacking. I am sure they will get up to play Notre Dame, but if they get off to a poor start, I can see them packing it in, especially since they don't convert 3rd downs very well at 35%.

Wunderdog

California at Stanford
Pick: Stanford -31.5

This is a huge rivalry game, and everyone has seen the dramatic finish from years ago of the band on the field and the result in probably one of the most seen finishes in CFB history. California, however, brings little if anything to the table for this rivalry game, while Stanford is one of the top teams in the country. The Cardinal was once again the first to knock off Oregon, and slipped last week by three to an up-and-coming USC team. They will be in an ornery mood here, and the nature of this game is such that there will absolutely be no letdown. That bodes poorly for a Cal team that has already suffered punishing losses by 28, 39, 32, and 34 points this season. And now they catch an elite Stanford team in a bad mood with no mercy against its arch rival. Lay the points and play on Stanford.

Sam Martin

Michigan at Iowa
Prediction: Iowa

Linesmaker has set a trap begging for Michigan money, but we're not falling for it and we'll lay the points with Iowa at home. Not only has Michigan been a very poor road team - getting outscored by 4 ppg and already losing two road game in conference play - but they are in a huge motivational play-against spot with Ohio State looming on deck.

Not only is Michigan looking ahead to their big rival, but with three losses on the season the only way to salvage this season is to upset the #3 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes at home, and we don't think Iowa will be the main focus in practice this week. That would be a mistake, as the Hawkeyes love to slow the game down here at home and play traditional "Big Ten football" with a power running game and use their tight-ends as their primary weapons in the passing game.

That type of offense rarely has Iowa in third-and-long situations and tends to wear a defense down as the game goes on. Wolverines 1-11 ATS after an outright win as a road underdog, and they are caught looking ahead this week and fall on the road once again.

Tulsa Golden Hurricane -3 (-120)

I'm not a believer in Louisiana Tech and their 4-6 record. While the Bulldogs are the only team in this matchup capable of making a bowl, there's a reason Tulsa is listed as the road favorite with a record of just 2-8.

Louisiana Tech hasn't beat a quality team all season. They got a cupcake win early against FCS Lamar and their three victories vs FBS opponents have come against UTEP, FIU and Southern Miss. Those three teams have a combined record of 3-27 and two of those wins are a result of FIU beating Southern Miss and UTEP beating FIU. Tulsa went on the road and beat UTEP 34-20 for one of their two wins and I don't doubt for second that they would knock off both FIU and Southern Miss.

These two teams have played 3 common opponents. While both have averaged right around 22 points offensively, Tulsa held the opposition to an average of just 21.3 points while Louisiana Tech surrendered 37.0 points. The Bulldogs poor defense is the big reason why I'm backing the Golden Hurricane. In order for Tulsa to be successful offensively they have to be able to run the football. That shouldn't be a problem. Louisiana Tech is ranked 86th in the country vs the run, giving up an average of 189.8 ypg. Keep in mind they have played an easy schedule or that number would be even higher.

Road teams with a line of +3 to -3 at least 7 games into the season, who are an average rushing team (3.5 to 4.3 yards/carry) against an opponent who has an average run defense (3.5 to 4.3 yards/carry) are 48-15 (76.2%) ATS over the last 10 seasons!

Michigan State vs. Northwestern    
Play: Northwestern +7½

Northwestern keeps finding new ways to lose, but they have been in every game with the exception of their hang over vs. Wisconsin

Flying under the radar is the play of Northwestern's defense. Michigan State's offense is no juggernaut especially on the road and QB Connor Cook has only been great when they are able to run the ball. Northwestern has kept all opponents under 5 yards per carry except Wisconsin and Ohio State. Northwestern's pass defense has also been great with 18 interceptions. That's led to good 3rd down defense which is where Michigan State will run into trouble in this game. Northwestern is also solid in red zone defense allowing just 54% touch downs while Michigan State is only converting 47% of their RZ appearances on the road into TD's.

Northwestern essentially beat Nebraska on the road where Michigan State won as a -5.5 road favorite. IF you remember Nebraska threw a silly 60 yard hail mary to win the game. So we have established NW on neutral field is better than Nebraska yet we are getting 2 extra points. NW is a well coached team that has shown they can battle through tough breaks. This is their game of the year and their chance to show up with a big win to save their bowl hopes. I won't be surprised if it happens.

Colorado +22.5

Just five days after winning a huge game against rugged Stanford, USC has to travel to cold weather to take on improved Colorado. Temperatures are expected to dip into the 20s, which certainly isn't Southern Cal weather.

The Trojans have arch-rival UCLA up next. So the situation is far from ideal for the Trojans.

But what about the matchup, can the Buffaloes hang with the Trojans who are playing their finest ball since getting rid of clueless Lane Kiffin?

I believe they can. The Buffaloes are improved under first-year head coach Mike McIntyre. They are off a confidence-building blowout of California in which they gained nearly 500 yards. This is the latest in the season that the Buffaloes have been still eligible for a bowl since 2007.

The Buffaloes will treat this matchup as their bowl game. Revenge for a 50-6 blowout loss last year is added incentive. That defeat came under the pitiful watch of former coach Jon Embree.

USC's best offensive player, star wide receiver Marqise Lee, is less than 100 percent after getting kicked in the shin against Stanford. Lee was just getting back from a knee injury, too.

Colorado has two good wide receivers. Paul Richardson is one of the more underrated wide receivers in the nation. Given the weather factor, USC's letdown spot, Colorado's overall improvement and respectable passing game and it's my belief the Buffaloes can stay within three touchdowns of the Trojans.

Bryan Power

Vanderbilt vs. Tennessee
Pick: Tennessee

With revenge and bowl eligibility hanging in the balance, Ill go ahead and lay the short number w/ the Vols at home Saturday night.

Before we get started, please note that I have already won EVERY DAY Monday through Thursday this week & have been up since DAY ONE this year in College Football!

It's not often that UT loses to its in-state rival, but it happened last year as Vandy got them in Nashville, 41-18 as 2.5-point favorites.  Not only was it just the 2nd time that the Commies had been favored over the Volunteers as SEC rivals, but it was their 1st win at home against Tennessee since 1982 and their largest margin of victory in the series since 1954!  That said, the Vols have still won 34 of the last 37 years including 17 of 18 here in Neyland Stadium.

Vanderbilt, despite wins over both Georgia and Florida, is not as strong this season compared to last.  They are coming off a win, but were +4 in turnovers vs. Kentucky and those who bet the Commodores should be thanking their lucky stars for the cover as they threw a TD pass in the final minute.  Remember that Kentucky has now lost its last 14 SEC games.

Tennessee is off a much needed bye as in the previous three games they had to play Alabama, Missouri and Auburn.  Before that, they dealt w/ Georgia and South Carolina.  No team in the country has played a harder schedule since the start of October.  It's a wonder that 1st year HC Butch Jones even still has a shot at bowl eligibility, which will require his team winning out.  Closing out the regular season next week against Kentucky should allow them to get to six wins, provided they are victorious here as well. Remember that UT has been shutout of the postseason the last two years.  Jones has already snapped the program's long losing streak to ranked teams w/ a win over South Carolina.  I see this team ending up in a bowl.

Marc Lawrence

Cincinnati vs. Houston
Pick: Cincinnati

Gee, maybe ol’ Tubs hasn’t forgotten how to coach after all. After a mediocre 3-2 season start (scored only 14 points against Miami Ohio!), we started thinking new HC Tommy Tuberville had made a mistake in ditching Lubbock for the Queen City. But with 6th-year SR starting QB Brendon Kay now leading the nation in pass completion percentage, the Bearcats have reeled off five straight wins – and have a legitimate shot at matching their 10-3 mark the previous two seasons under Butch Jones. The ‘Cats have also been outstatted only once this year, making them a ‘Puttin’ On The Stats’ underdog play here. Meanwhile, the upstart Cougars are just 2-6 ITS in their last eight games and have lost three of the last five on the scoreboard. Houie has gained a lot of love from handicappers after taking conference powers UCF and Louisville to the limit over the last two weeks, but the fact is both games ended in defeat. So, after taking 17 points against the Cardinals and 13 points against the Knights, we’re leery of the Cougars showing up as chalk against a red-hot Cincinnati squad that’s gone 4-1 ATS of late in this series. Houston is routinely mentioned as owning one of the country’s most prolific offenses but the Bearcats gain more yards on that side of the ball and field a much stronger defense. We’ll side with Tubs and company in this WTF (Wrong Team Favored) special.  we recommend a 1-unit play on Cincinnati.

Texas A&M vs. LSU
Play: Over

The Aggies have scored at least 41 points in every game, including their matchup against Alabama’s elite defense.  Let’s not forget that the Crimson Tide gave up 42 points and 628 yards of total offense against the Aggies, but only 50 points in eight games since that shootout.

LSU isn’t any more likely to shut down Johnny Manziel than any of the other SEC defenses that Texas A&M has shredded in recent weeks.   The last three good offenses the Tigers have faced – Alabama, Ole Miss and Georgia – combined to score 109 points against LSU’s stop unit.

But Kevin Sumlin’s defense can’t be trusted to get stops, which is why A&M has exceeded 78 points in all six previous SEC games.  And Cam Cameron’s offense is no joke; primed for a bounceback showing after last week’s rough second half against ‘Bama.  Even a few rainshowers can’t slow these two top notch attacks!  Take the Over.

Georgia St +24

When laying a huge number like we see here the favorite must be able to dominate the opposition on both sides of the ball. While we feel the Red Wolves will put up substantial offensive numbers we're not sure they will be able to score enough to hold off the pesky Panthers. Against Sun Belt opposition Arkansas State has permitted over 430 yards per game. The largest Sun Belt win for the Red Wolves was 28 against ULM. In five league games the Red Wolves have been out gained by 187 total yards. Throw in the fact that this team has Western Kentucky revenge on deck for their only conference loss last year, and we see this game being much tighter than the spread suggests.

While Georgia State is winless on the season the Panthers are 7-1 ATS in lined contests. This is a squad that has lost by more than this spread just once all season in conference action. Despite playing the overall tougher schedule Georgia State has just a 1.0 yards per play deficit in this contest. When comparing the four common opponents we see that Georgia State was out gained by 490 yards, Arkansas State was out gained by 153, an 84 yard Red Wolves advantage per game. That doesn't equate to a spread of this magnitude. Sure Arkansas State will gain the victory here, but it won't be nearly as easy as the market projects.

Iowa Hawkeyes -5.5

Iowa had won three straight against Michigan before it fell 42-17 in Ann Arbor last November. At home on senior day following an extra week of preparation, the Hawkeyes will have their revenge. You want to take favorites of 3.5 to 10 points that check in off a double-digit road win when they’re matched up against an opponent that checks in off a road win. That’s because doing so has produced a 27-5 ATS mark the last 5 seasons. Teams fitting these parameters have been favored by 6.9 points on average and have won by an average of 17.9 points. This system is 11-1 ATS the last 3 seasons. Michigan’s upset win at Northwestern in triple-OT last week puts it in a tight spot here. Consider that the Wolverines are on a 1-11 ATS skid following an upset win on the road. The Wolverines are also a soft 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 road games. In addition, Iowa is 11-3 ATS as a home favorite of 3.5 to 7.0 points under coach Kirk Ferentz. It has won these games by an average score of 31.9 to 17.4. Lay the points.
