2020 SEASON RECORD: 1-4-0 (20%)
Not exactly the start we hoped for… BUT WE ARE BACK. After a few upsets in Week 1, here is your Week 2 slate:
Week 2 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
#17 Miami (+2.5) at #18 Louisville – Saturday 6:30pm
Game Preview: Miami is coming off a 31-14 win against UAB where they ran for over 300 rushing yards. You know who is not good stopping the run? Louisville. This is a matchup nightmare for Louisville and not only do I think Miami covers, but they win the ball game behind D”Eriq King. I’ve been hurt before by Miami… I’m ready to be hurt again.
Pick: Miami 37-31
Top Picks of the Week
Houston at Baylor (-4) – Saturday 11:00am (CANCELLED)
While I know Baylor lost a ton of talent from last year’s team, they still have Charlie Brewer and straight up are the better football team than Houston. This is a Houston team that finished 4-8 last season including finishing the year 1-4. Baylor wins and covers.
Tulsa at #10 Oklahoma State (-23.5) (UNDER 66.5) – Saturday 11:00am
I’m a huge believer in Oklahoma State this year. Defensively they’ll be improved and offensively they’ll continue to score points. However, 66.5 points is too many points for a game where it is both teams first time on the field. Cowboys win 41-17.
#14 UCF at Georgia Tech (+7.5)– Saturday 2:30pm
Georgia Tech looked pretty good last week and now face a UCF team that has not played a football game yet. This is a moneyline sprinkle opportunity as Georgia Tech has the team to pull the upset behind true freshman quarterback Jeff Sims.
Louisiana Tech (+5.5) at Southern Miss- Saturday 6:30pm
This line honestly doesn’t make sense to me. Louisiana Tech is coming off a 10-3 season. Southern Miss looked horrible against South Alabama… Don’t overthink this, Louisiana Tech is the easy pick.
Wake Forest (+2.5) at NC State – Saturday 7:00pm
Quarterback Sam Hartman played well in Week 1 as Wake Forest battled with Clemson. On the other side, I do not trust NC State’s starting QB Devin Leary. Wake Forest is ultimately the better football team and should beat NC State. Give me the 2.5 points too for comfort!
