College Football Week 2: What’s On Tap

Posted by in College Football Picks on September 6th, 2010 | Comment »
Week 2 College Football Picks

Four great games are on tap week 2 and I like Alabama.

Here are the big games that are on tap for week 2 of college football:

  • No. 20 Florida State @ No. 7 Oklahoma (-9)
  • Michigan @ Notre Dame (-4)
  • No. 13 Miami @ No. 2 Ohio State (-9.5)
  • No. 19 Penn State @ No. 1 Alabama (-11.5)

We’ll be sure to preview those games. Here are my early thoughts on those games.

I really like Alabama next week. I would absolutely love this spread at -9.5. I think they should win by 14-21. At 11.5, PSU has a shot at covering, but I doubt it.

If Michigan was at home, I would absolutely love that pick, but ND’s home-field advantage is undeniable. I thought Michigan would get 3 in this one, so the 4 is generous. It looks like Rich Rodriguez found his next Pat White in Denard Robinson. Robinson was lights out in the Connecticut game (19/22, 186 passing yards, 196 rushing yards, 1 passing TD, 1 rushing TD) and if he can repeat that type of performance, Michigan could pull off the upset in South Bend.

I think Ohio State wins, but I count on Miami on keeping the game within reach.

Despite Oklahoma not crushing Utah State this past week, I think Oklahoma has no problem covering the 9 points in this game. Florida State gives up a lot of points. Last year Florida State gave up 37 to Florida, 38 to Miami, 49 to Georgia Tech, 27 to North Carolina, 40 to Clemson, and 26 to Maryland. At home, Oklahoma is due for at least 35 and I don’t think the Seminoles can put up 24 against a Sooners defense that will be …

Georgia Tech vs Miami Under 54.5

Posted by in College Football Picks on September 17th, 2009 | 2 Comments

Current Profit/Loss -2.4 Units:

Georgia Tech vs Miami UNDER 54.5:

This number appears pretty high for two teams that run the ball more often then they go through the air. GT has switched to the option offense and their QB has looked very poor so far this year throwing the ball. Miami’s D will likely put 8 to 9 in the box to help shut down the run and force GT’s QB to beat them through the air. Miami is also at their best on the ground, if last week verse Florida State was indicator of things left to come this year. I also think with this being an important tough conference game the defenses will both be on lock down tonight. Look for this score to be much lower than either of these teams previous contests. I see the score being more like 30-14, Miami. Even though I like Miami, I am not playing them because of that very tough, physical battle they had with Florida State last out, there still may be some lingering effect.

The Play UNDER 54.5   1 unit

Good Luck.…
