Georgia vs. Georgia Tech Pick Against the Spread

Posted by in College Football Picks on November 27th, 2009 | Comment »

We had a solid amazing Thursday, we had a solid incredible Friday, and now we’re turning to see what’s on tap tomorrow.  I like UCONN -13.5 tomorrow, but another game that is jumping out to me is Georgia vs. Georgia Tech -7.5.

WEEKLY RECAP: Hit 3 teasers on Thursday (GB/UNDER, DAL/UNDER, GB/DAL), hit Brandon’s Thanksgiving Special (Texas A&M +21), hit Rutgers -3 at 11:00, hit Brandon’s Game of the Year #4 at 2:30 (Auburn +10), hit 7:00 teaser (PITT +7/UNDER), and now looking to add another W with Boise State -6.5, over 63 at 10:00. I’m 7-0 in my last 7 games since Thanksgiving.  Seven and O! The teasers have been working like a charm.

I just can’t get enough football during the long Thanksgiving weekend. Can you tell with the full write ups?

GEORGIA BULLDOGS @ GEORGIA TECH BULLDOGS -7.5

I’ve been eying up this game all week and Georgia Tech -7.5 is just screaming out at me. Why do I like Georgia Tech so much? Their QB Josh Nesbitt is probably the best running QB in the NCAA right now with 1,418 passing yards, 8 passing TDs, 847 rushing yards, and 14 TDs. GT is also 7-1 ATS in their last 8 game and I’ve been riding them throughout that streak.

GT (7-1) is facing a 5-4 Georgia team that averages 27.5 PPG and allows 26.6 PPG, compared to GT’s 36 PPG and 23.5 PPG allowed.  GT’s offense averages just about 100 more yards of offense per game.  Although Georgia just gives up an average of 327 yards per game overall, they’ve been awful on the road, surrendering 390 yards per game and 30 PPG. I like Georgia Tech in this one since Georgia will give up a …

Vegas’s College Football Week 9 Picks & Predictions

Posted by in College Football Picks on October 23rd, 2008 | 2 Comments

There are some big “must watch” college games this Saturday and that’s what I want to cover. These are really tough to call, but here are my two cents. I actually like the Maryland and Pittsburgh picks more than the high-profile matchups below.

#8 OKLAHOMA STATE COWBOYS @ #1 TEXAS LONGHORNS -12.5

I was a bit surprised the line was this high. I love Texas to win this one. Oklahoma St. is playing at a high level. Both teams are 7-0 and averaging more than 45 PPG. Both teams are perfect against the spread this year. Texas has the edge at QB with Colt McCoy who is the frontrunner to win the Hiesman and Texas has the better defense. With the home field, I see them winning this one, but will they run away with the game just like the Missouri game? That’s difficult to say. I don’t like the high spread for a game that should be an offensive showdown. This one is too close to call with the spread. I love Texas to win outright, but I don’t like giving up 12.5 in what should be a close game. I’m not indicating to take the points by the prediction as I can also see a Texas beat down just like the Missouri game. It’s just your best bet to avoid this spread or tease it to Texas -5.5 with another game.

Prediction — Texas 38 – Oklahoma State 28

#9 GEORGIA BULLDOGS @ #11 LSU TIGERS -1.5

I like the Bulldogs in this one. They have a much better QB in Matthew Staffard than LSU and have more playmakers with WRs JR Green and Mohamed Massaquoi and RB Knowshon Moreno (6.0 YPC, 11 TDs). Both teams are averaging …

BCS Bowl Game Predictions and Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in College Football Picks on December 28th, 2007 | Comment »

What a suiting article for the 100th article here on THE PASS RUSH.  Here are my picks and predictions for the BCS Bowl games.  Here are my picks for the non-BCS Bow games.

ROSE BOWL: Illinois Fighting Illini vs. USC Trojans -13.5

I don’t know why the Illini are getting a lack of respect in this game.  I thought the spread should be USC -9.  I think Illinois is very capable of covering this one.  They were the team to top Ohio State and have impressive wins against Penn State and Wisconsin.  Their first game of the season was against should-be BSC Bowl contender Missouri, and they only lost that one by 4.  These teams match up pretty evenly.  Illinois has an average PF of 28.8, USC’s is 31.2.  Illinois has an average PA of 19.5, USC’s is 15.9.  Illinois’ 7-4 record against the spread is better than USC’s 6-6 record against the spread.  9/13 of the experts at covers.com are taking USC to cover, but I think the Trojans will win, but Illinois will cover.  Also keep in mind that USC has a huge advantage being in Pasadena.

Prediction – USC defeats Illinois – 34-24

USC Moneyline – Confidence 4/5
Illinois +13.5 Spread – Confidence 2/5

SUGAR BOWL: Hawaii Warriors vs. Georgia Bulldogs -7.5

When I first saw the Bowl games announced I was getting excited about this one because I expect the Bulldogs to stomp on the Warriors.  I thought the spread should be at least 10 points.  We all know about Hawaii’s offense, but they’ve been playing mickey-mouse defenses; they haven’t seen a defense like Georgia’s.  I don’t think Hawaii will know what hit them when they have to square off on January 1st.  Hawaii’s defense …

Week 13 (November 24) College Football Picks

Posted by in College Football Picks on November 23rd, 2007 | Comment »

There are a few week 13 college football games that I like tomorrow. If you’re looking for the Week 12 NFL previews, you can get to those by following the link. Here are the NCAA football games that I like.

Georgia Bulldogs -3.5 @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

The 9-2 Bulldogs have been great. They’ve won 3-straight games over ranked opponents by an average of 16 points. They beat Florida by 12, Auburn by 25, and Kentucky by 11. Their only losses are to Tennessee and South Carolina, two very solid teams. Georgia Tech is 7-4 (4-4 in the ACC) and don’t impress me too much. They were beat up by Virginia Tech at home 27-3 and are coming off a mere 2-point win over a weak North Carolina team.

Prediction – Georgia defeats Goergia Tech – 24-10

Georgia Moneyline – Confidence 4/5
Georgia -3.5 Spread – Confidence 4/5 (Bought line at -3)

South Florida Bulls -9 @ Pittsburgh Panthers

South Florida outmatches Pittsburgh in all offensive and defensive categories. After losing 3 straight (to UConn, Rutgers, and Cincinnati), the Bulls have gotten things back on track with big wins over Syracuse (41-10) and Louisville (55-17). Pittsburgh does nothing to impress me. They’ve lost to Connecticut by 20, Louisville by 7, and Virginia by 30, but they’ve kept it close at Rutgers, only losing by 4. They should struggle offensively against this Bulls defense and hopefully the Bulls offense can keep things going.

Prediction – South Florida defeats Pittsburgh – 27-13

South Florida Moneyline – Confidence 4/5
South Florida -9 Spread – Confidence 3/5…
