2019 SEASON RECORD: 55-52
Week 10 Game of the Week
#8 Georgia vs #6 Florida (+6.5) – Saturday 2:30pm
Game Preview: The battle for the SEC East. The winner takes a two game lead and a 95% chance of winning the division. Florida has looked like the better team all year. Their defense is very good and Kyle Trask has command of the offense. Meanwhile, Georgia’s offense has looked lethargic and lack game breakers at receiver. Florida wins this game and the SEC East outright.
Pick: Florida 21-17
Top Picks of the Week (All Times CST)
West Virginia (+19) at #12 Baylor Under 57.5 – Thursday 7:00pm
I think Baylor is a good football team, but covering that many points on a Thursday night is tough. As for the under, West Virginia has scored 14 points the last two weeks against defenses not as good as Baylor’s. Think 31-14 sounds about the right score where both win. One of these are guaranteed to hit.
#14 Michigan (-19) at Maryland – Saturday 11:00am
Michigan is getting hot at the right time and Maryland is bad at the wrong time. Maryland has lost to Purdue by 36 and Minnesota by 42 this month. Michigan should cover easily.
UTSA (+38.5) at Texas A&M – Saturday 11:00am
A&M beat Texas State by 34 at the start of the year, think 38.5 will be too many points for them to cover against UTSA. That’s it. That’s my logic.
Houston (+23) at UCF – Saturday 11:00am
Houston kept it close against SMU and I think they can do the same against UCF. Houston hasn’t been beaten by over 20 points all season. I know they don’t have D’Eriq King, but it still isn’t a bad football team. Meanwhile, UCF’s Freshman QB Dillon Gabriel has been a little inconsistent. This spread is too damn high!
TCU at Oklahoma State OVER 59 – Saturday 2:30pm
Oklahoma State loves scoring points and not playing defense. TCU can score as well with Freshman QB Max Duggan settling in as the starter. Lots of points.
#9 Utah at Washington UNDER 47.5 – Saturday 3:00pm
Utah has given up a TOTAL of 23 points over their last four games. Utah will slow Washington’s offense down and the under will hit.
Mississippi State at Arkansas UNDER 58.5 – Saturday 3:00pm
I don’t know why this point total is so high. Arkansas and Mississippi State both struggle on offense. Mississippi State doesn’t have an awful defense either. Expect a low scoring ugly game.
Tulsa (+10.5) at Tulane – Saturday 3:00pm
Tulsa has lost by 1 point to #24 Memphis, 11 points to #17 Cincinnati, and 6 points in OT to #15 SMU. Tulsa likes to keep things close! Tulane on the other hand has lost two in a row. Tulsa covers and maybe even wins in New Orleans. Money line sprinkle!
#15 SMU (+6.5) at #24 Memphis – Saturday 6:30pm
SMU is the best of the Group of 5 and getting points against an inconsistent Memphis team. Almost a touchdown spread in what should be a pick’em game is too good to pass up. Take SMU.
