Texas +3.5 & ML: Oklahoma is favored in this rivalry game and what I’ve seen from them gives me zero confidence they can beat this Texas team that has been rolling as of late. We dismissed Texas after they went on the road and lost to Arkansas, but how bad does that really look now? Oklahoma has struggled with the likes of Nebraska, Tulane, and K-State in recent weeks and Texas has been dominate since moving to Casey Thompson at QB. This should be a shootout, but I love Texas at +3.5 and I’m on the ML as well. Bijan Robinson goes off. Cash it.
Arkansas +6.5: Call me a sucker but I still love what Arkansas has rolling with Sam Pittman, even after watching them get drubbed by Georgia. Georgia is the best team in the country and is a nightmare matchup for what the Arkansas’ strengths are, but the good news is Ole Miss is the antithesis of Georgia. Arkansas will be able to run the ball and burn the Rebel D on play action, it’s bread and butter and Ole Miss offensively is not a ground and pound team like Georgia. Arkansas has the athletes on the outside defensively to slow Ole Miss down and make this one go down to the wire. 6.5 is way too many points. Cash it.
Louisville -2: This line is a head scratcher which worries me but I really think Louisville wins this pretty handily. This Virginia defense is atrocious, they just lost to Miami who is terrible and now they face one of the more dynamic QB’s in the country in Malik Cunningham. Neither defense is that great but Louisville’s offense is more dynamic and they impressed me last week taking Wake Forest down to the wire on the road. The home team and the better team only laying 2 points? Cash it.
Iowa -2.5: The game of the week in CFB as #3 Iowa takes on #4 Penn State and I love the Hawkeyes to win in an ugly punt fest. Iowa’s defense has been making QB’s look like dog shit all season, most notably media darling Brock Purdy in Week 2. I don’t think Clifford will fare any better and I look for that defense to turn over Penn St 3+ times once again and give the offense enough short fields to be able to take care of business this week. This is the best defense Iowa has faced but until they face a QB that can sling it around and take care of the football I will be hammering them. Cash it.
Nebraska +3.5: This is a dangerous game for Michigan as Nebraska has continued to look better and better every week. The Huskers lost inexcusably Week 1 to Illinois, but since then they have dominated the teams they should and were close to taking down 2 ranked, undefeated teams in Oklahoma and Michigan St. I am not sold on Michigan and think this is a monster game for Nebraska’s program. I love home dogs, especially when it means a little more. Had to talk myself down from the ML here but 3.5? Cash it.
