2019 SEASON RECORD: 27-22
Week 5 Game of the Week
#21 USC (+10.5) at #17 Washington – Saturday 2:30pm
Game Preview: This game is pending on the health of USC QB Kedon Slovis. USC is coming off a huge win over Utah and I think they keep the momentum going by playing Washington close. I like Washington to win, but USC covers.
Pick: Washington 27-21
Top Picks of the Week (All Times CST)
Northwestern at #8 Wisconsin (-24) – Saturday 11:00am
Northwestern can’t score and Wisconsin has given up 14 points in THREE GAMES. No way Northwestern gets into the double digits. Wisconsin has also scored at least 35 points each week. Meaning the closest the score will be is 35-10. Wisconsin covers.
BYU (-1.5) at Toledo – Saturday 11:00am
BYU is battle tested with their tough schedule and a win over USC. Toledo has snuck by Colorado State and lost to Kentucky by 14. BYU wins and covers.
Wake Forest (-6.5) at Boston College UNDER 71 – Saturday 2:30pm
I do not understand this line at all. Never forget Boston College lost to Kansas by double digits. Boston College also isn’t a high scoring team and faces an underrated defense in Wake Forest. Wake Forest beats Boston College 35-17. That’s covering the spread by 12 points and the under by almost 20 points.
#18 Virginia (+12.5) at #10 Notre Dame – Saturday 2:30pm
Notre Dame surprisingly kept it close against Georgia. But Virginia is one of the best teams in the ACC and 12.5 is too many points. Irish win by a touchdown.
Ole Miss at #2 Alabama (-35) – Saturday 2:30pm
Hope you got the line early. Alabama covers.
SMU(-7) at South Florida – Saturday 3:00pm
SMU outplayed TCU and is a very good football team. With former Texas QB Shane Buechele leading, SMU might be the favorite to win the AAC. South Florida on the hand is awful and lost to Georgia Tech. SMU wins BIG.
Kansas State at Oklahoma State (-4) – Saturday 6:00pm
Oklahoma State is at home and coming off a loss to Texas. Despite the loss, Cowboys are a lot better football team than Kansas State. Pokes bounce back.
Louisiana Tech at Rice (+10) – Saturday 6:00pm
Rice is the best 0-4 team in the country. The Owls have played Army, Wake Forest, and Baylor all tough. I don’t only like Rice to cover, I LOVE them on the money line. Rice wins their first game this weekend.
#5 Ohio State (-17) at Nebraska – Saturday 6:30pm
You get in a close shootout with Illinois, you’re not staying within 20 points of Ohio State. Buckeyes win big and cover again. (Ohio State have been cover kings this year).
Washington State at #19 Utah (-4.5) – Saturday 9:00pm
I know I said I’d quit Utah. But they’re still a good football team. You also have the Cougars coming off a terrible late night loss against UCLA. Utah wins by over a touchdown.
