Colorado is Missouri’s next victim. The 7-1 Tigers are rolling. This offense cannot be stopped. The Tigers are averaging 40.4ppg this season and 38.7ppg in conference play. The Buffs are just 1-11 ATS when they allow 28 or more points over the last 3 seasons and this is a given against Mizzou. Missouri is 13-1 ATS when it scores 28 or more points over the last 2 seasons. Mizzou has covered the spread in every game but one this season. We expect their ATS dominance to continue this week.

After a huge win last week over Michigan State, the Hawkeyes are smelling a bowl with three games remaining. A win here against Northwestern gets them one step closer. The Hawks suffered a terrible loss at home to Northwestern a season ago and head coach Kirk Ferentz won’t let his team forget it. The Hawkeyes will get revenge against the Wildcats here. Iowa’s running game came alive last week, exploding for 230 yards. Northwestern’s defense has been very poor again this season and I don’t see the Cats stopping Iowa’s running attack. Once the Hawks get that ground game established, we expect Iowa QB Jake Christensen to pick on the Northwestern D-backs. Iowa is 7-0 ATS after gaining 75 or less passing yards in their last game since 1992. We expect Iowa’s offense to be much more balanced this week and to take care of the Wildcats on the road.

The Florida State Seminoles will give the Boston College Eagles a run for their money Saturday. Bobby Bowden has announced that Drew Weatherford will start at QB and it was the best decision he has made all season. Weatherford is completing over 60% of his passes and has just thrown 1 interception to 5 touchdowns this season. He gives the Seminoles their best chance to win. Florida State has the defense that can shut down Matt Ryan and BC Saturday. As long as Florida State doesn’t turn the ball over, which they won’t with Weatherford at the helm, the Seminoles can pull off this upset and make their season. FSU is giving up a mere 18 points per game this year. The Seminoles are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. They are known for losing games they should win and winning games they should lose. They will play the role of the underdog very well Saturday allowing for a nice ATS cover. More from John

UConn and Rutgers will be host to a defensive battle Saturday. The UConn Huskies have one of the most underrated defense in the country, holding a potent South Florida offense to just 15 points last week and holding Louisville to just 17 points in the week prior. The Huskies are allowing just 13 points a game overall and 11.8 points per game at home. Both teams really, I mean really run the ball a lot. This will allow for more ball control and more clock movement without many stoppages. Rutgers is averaging over 228 yards rushing on the road and UConn is rushing for 187 yards a game at home. This is each team’s bread and butter and they will not shy away from it Saturday. Rutgers is only giving up 20 points a game this season so UConn will continue to struggle offensively, relying on their defense to keep them in this ball game. The UNDER is 14-6 in UConn’s last 20 home games. The Under is 14-3 in Huskies last 17 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. UConn is 9-1 UNDER off a home win over the last 3 seasons. More from Larry
