2020 SEASON RECORD: 30-26-0 (53.6%)
TGIS went 6-5… not bad… not great. Don’t worry we are going undefeated with a full slate of action this weekend. HERE IS THIS WEEK’S PICKS:
Week 7 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
#21 Minnesota (+3.5) at #18 Michigan – Saturday 6:30pm
Game Preview: The wrong team is favored in this game. The Minnesota offense returns just about everybody including Big Ten Second Team QB Tanner Morgan. Meanwhile, Michigan is throwing out a first time starter at QB and is replacing a ton on both sides of the ball. Minnesota handles it (take the moneyline too).
Pick: Minnesota 34-24
Top Picks of the Week
Auburn at Ole Miss (+3.5) – Saturday 11:00am
While Ole Miss’s game against Arkansas gave me some concern about Matt Corral… I still think he is a very good quarterback. On the other side… YOU CAN’T TRUST BO NIX.
Oklahoma (-6.5) at TCU – Saturday 11:00am
Oklahoma is eventually going to figure it out and I think it starts this weekend. I’m trusting their offense to score 40+ points. Oklahoma 45-34.
Nebraska at #5 Ohio State (-26.5) – Saturday 11:00am
Ohio State has been dying to show they are in the same class as Alabama and Clemson. Ohio State runs up the score in a blowout.
Syracuse (+47) at #1 Clemson– Saturday 11:00am
Is Syracuse a bad football team? Absoultely. But 47 points is flat out disrespectful. Clemson will take the foot off the pedal in the second half and only win by 35.
#2 Alabama (-21) at Tennessee – Saturday 2:30pm
If Kentucky just beat Tennessee by 27 points… why would I not trust Alabama to do the same?
#3 Notre Dame at Pittsburgh (+11) – Saturday 2:30pm
I watched Notre Dame’s ugly 12-7 game against Louisville… this is definitely not the #3 team in the country. Sprinkle the moneyline also in a potential upset.
South Carolina (+6.5) at LSU – Saturday 6:00pm
Something is fishy about this line… LSU starts true freshman QB TJ Finley who is not mobile and was a 55% passer in High School. Meanwhile South Carolina is back after a big win against Auburn. AND LSU IS FAVORED BY ALMOST A TOUCHDOWN??? This is a trap, but I’m taking the bait. South Carolina and a moneyline sprinkle.
Maryland (+11) at Northwestern (Under 55) – Saturday 6:30pm
Northwestern averaged 12 points per game last year and now I am supposed to think they can cover a double digit spread? No thank you, Maryland and the under.
#9 Cincinnati (+3) at #16 SMU- Saturday 8:00pm
Another example of the wrong team being favored. Cincinnati might not have looked amazing offensively this season, but their defense is legit. Cincinnati not only covers, but they win the football game.
