Vegas Martin’s Week 6 College Football Picks

Posted by in College Football Picks on October 10th, 2009 | Comment »

College football is not my forte, I usually leave that up to Brandon, but I’m going to post up some picks and see what happens. I’m feeling lucky!

1.) West Virginia -10.5 over SYRACUSE (W) — Syracuse is traditionally the Raiders of college football the last few years, but they’re a tad more competitive this year with that Duke kid playing QB. 15/18 experts at Covers.com like this pick and so do I.  At only 10.5 points, I think it’s a steal since the Orange are so bad, but some places have the line at -9.5/-10 so see if you can find that one.

2.) Oklahome State -4.5 over TEXAS A&M (W) — T A&M has some defensive issues, so I think Oklahoma St. is poised to put up a lot of points with their 39 PPG average.  The bad news is that their stud WR Dez Bryant is out with a suspension.  After a tough loss to Houston, OSU boosted their confidence with shellackings over Rice and Grambling where they reached almost 100 points in those 2 contests.  This is a tough spot for them on the road, but they have the edge on offense and defense.  Texas A&M hasn’t beaten anyone special this season, but got CRUSHED by Arkansas last week by the score of 47-19 (at home to boot). 8/11 experts agree with my Oklahoma St. over Texas A&M pick.

3.) Alabama -4.5 over MISSISSIPPI (W) — After Ole’ Miss’s loss to South Carolina, I lost all faith in them.  Look for Alabama to prove to the country why they’re a top 3 team in the country.  Tough spot on the road, but they’re clearly the stronger team here.  Alabama has DOMINATED both Kentucky and Arakansas.  Miss’s competition this year has been sub-par and the only strong team they’ve faced is South Carolina and they lost that contest.  11/17 experts at Covers.com agree with taking Alabama here.

4.) FLORIDA ST. -2.5 over Georgia Tech (L) — I put this very low on my confidence rating, I give it a 1/5, but this is a hunch here.  Most people like Georgia Tech (3-1) over FSU (2-3).  GT hasn’t beaten anyone special and they were killed by Miami.  FSU was able to hang with Miami, losing by a score of 38-34, whereas GT got killed 33-17.  FSU was upset by South Florida and had to follow that with a tough game on the road against Boston College, but they’re not as bad as their 2-3 record indicates.  The fact that FSU is favored speaks volumes to me — I think the books want you to be tempted to take GT because I believe they think FSU is the team to take.  At home, in a night game, I think they are emotionally charged and want to win this one for Coach Bowden.   This gives FSU a HUGE emotional edge in this matchup.  GT is overratered and FSU is underrated in my opinion.  I wonder how many fans will be wearing black tonight.  Yahoo writer Matt Hinston likes FSU tonight.

Look for my Florida vs. LSU analysis later today!

Good luck today!
