OVERALL RECORD: 131-100-1 (57%)
2021 SEASON RECORD: 53-44-0 (54.6%)
A solid week betting last week as we are keeping our betting total right around 55%. Week 8 is kind of a weak slate but regardless… HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:
Week 8 Games of the Week (All Times CST)
Oklahoma State (+7.5) at Iowa State– 11:00am
There are 0 ranked matchups this week… so I guess Oklahoma State/Iowa State is the game of the week? I expect this to be low scoring and ugly with two very good defenses. In that type of game you have to take the 7.5 points.
Pick: Iowa State 24-20
Top Picks of the Week
Wake Forest at Army (+3) – 11:00am
Undefeated Wake Forest has been playing close games for weeks now. They finally get exposed against the Troops and take their first L.
Kansas State (+1) at Texas Tech- 11:00am
This is a simple play. Skylar Thompson > backup QB Henry Colombi. Kansas State wins on the road.
Clemson (+3.5) at Pitt – 2:30pm
I know the Clemson offense is terrible… but the defense is still elite based on ACC standards. I actually like Clemson to cover and possibly win.
LSU at Ole Miss UNDER 76 – 2:30pm
Ole Miss unders have cashed the last two weeks. Add in the fact Matt Corrall is banged up after running the ball 30 times last week… principle under.
Oregon at UCLA (-1) – 2:30pm
Don’t be fooled by Oregon’s top ten rating… they’ve played abysmal offensive football the last few weeks. UCLA finally catches them as TGIS is not an Anthony Brown believer website.
NC State (-3) at Miami – 2:30pm
NC State is the best team in the ACC. Give me the Wolfpack.
South Carolina at Texas A&M UNDER 45 – 6:30pm
South Carolina lost their starting Quarterback for the year. Now he faces a really good Texas A&M defense. Take the under and hope South Carolina doesn’t score.
USC at Notre Dame UNDER 58 – 6:30pm
Notre Dame doesn’t have a quarterback and plays good defense. USC has to come to chilly South Bend after getting beat by double digits two out of the last three weeks. Expect an ugly low scoring game.
Utah (-3) at Oregon State – 6:30pm
Utah is 3-0 since Cameron Rising took over at quarterback and have won by double digits each game. Take the Utes.
