2020 SEASON RECORD: 24-21-0 (53.3%)
TGIS went 5-8 last week after being fooled by LSU and Florida. I’ve learned and I’m moving forward… HERE IS THIS WEEK’S PICKS:
Week 6 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
#3 Georgia at #2 Alabama (-3.5) – Saturday 7:00pm
Game Preview: No Saban? No problem. The Alabama defensive performance against Ole Miss was pathetic. But it has caused a major overreaction instead of looking at the brightside… Alabama’s offense is lethal. The game comes down to a simple concept: Mac Jones > Stetson Bennett. Sure Georgia has the edge on defense, but I don’t see Georgia’s offense being able to keep up with Bama’s. Bama wins. (UPDATE: Saban is one negative test from coaching… hope you grabbed the line when it was at -3.5)
Pick: Alabama 31-24
Top Picks of the Week
Auburn (-3) at South Carolina – Saturday 11:00am
Auburn squeaked out a close victory against Arkansas, but they are still a better team than the Gamecocks. We learned last week from LSU a big win over Vandy doesn’t make a team good… so don’t be fooled by the Cocks 41-7 win. Auburn by at least a touchdown.
Pittsburgh (+13.5) at Miami – Saturday 11:00am
Pittsburgh plays solid defense and will be able to contain D’Eriq King. They may not win against the Hurricanes, but they will keep it within two touchdowns.
Kansas at West Virginia (-22.5) – Saturday 11:00am
If Kansas is an underdog by less than four touchdowns take the other team. Kansas has lost to Coastal Carolina by 15, Baylor by 33, and Oklahoma State by 40. Take West Virginia.
Louisville (+17) at #4 Notre Dame– Saturday 1:30pm
I just can’t quit Louisville. Their defense is awful, but they can put up points. Notre Dame couldn’t even cover against Florida State… the Cardinals will be fine.
Duke at NC State (-4.5) – Saturday 2:30pm
This isn’t enough points… NC State is the much better team and Duke won’t be able to keep up. NC State by double digits.
Ole Miss (-1.5) at Arkansas Under 76– Saturday 2:30pm
Keep an eye on this one before kickoff. Ole Miss has some unknown COVID cases. Regardless I think Ole Miss is one of the better teams in the SEC despite their terrible defense. I also don’t trust Feleipe Franks with a point total of 76. Ole Miss wins 41-30.
#11 Texas A&M (-5) at Mississippi State – Saturday 3:00pm
Mississippi State is not good. The LSU game fooled all of us. Texas A&M wins by over a touchdown and KJ Costello keeps throwing interceptions.
North Carolina (-13.5) at Florida State – Saturday 6:30pm
Florida State is still awful… I don’t care that they covered against Notre Dame. North Carolina in a blowout.
Boston College (+12.5) at Virginia Tech – Saturday 7:00pm
The ACC is random… but I don’t understand this line. Boston College has proved to be better than expected at 3-1 and hasn’t lost a game by more than four points (against North Carolina that thumped VT by double digits). The line is way too large and is worth a moneyline sprinkle.
