OVERALL RECORD: 199-165-4 (54.7%)
2022 SEASON RECORD: 28-26-3 (51.9%)
We had a chance last week for our 200th victory overall. But we will get it this week as we are spraying the board. Oh and by the way… the Miller Lite Minute is 12-4 on the season. LET’S GET TO THE PICKS
Week 6 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
#8 Tennessee -2.5 at #25 LSU – 11:00am
I guess this the game of the week? But anyways, LSU was lucky to win against Auburn after only putting up 270 total yards and 3.6 yards per play. That won’t beat this Tennessee team that has scored at least 34 points every game this year. LSU will not be able to score enough points to keep up.
Pick: Tennessee 38-27
TOP PICKS OF THE WEEK
Louisville -3 at Virginia – 11:00am
Virginia has been struggling all year with no offensive line and a stagnant Tony Elliot offense. After getting beat by Duke 38-17, look for Virginia to fall big against Louisville (I have faith starting Louisville QB Malik Cunningham will play).
Arkansas +9.5 at #23 Mississippi State – 11:00am
This line is way too big. Arkansas has won the last two games against Mississippi State with Barry Odom at DC. The Razorbacks defense will continue to have a good plan of attack to slow down this Bulldog offense. I like Arkansas and maybe even a little moneyline sprinkle at +275.
#5 Clemson -20.5 at Boston College – 11:00am
Boston College has a terrible offensive line that is decimated by injuries. Clemson’s defensive line will take advantage. And do not look now, but DJU is actually playing decent at QB this year. Clemson in a blowout.
#17 TCU at #19 Kansas Over 67.5 – 11:00am
I do not trust Kansas’ defense to slow down this TCU offense. I also think Kansas and Jalon Daniels will be able to enter a track meet with TCU to keep the scoring pace. Over hits.
Texas -7 vs Oklahoma – 11:00am
Oklahoma’s defense is just awful. There were scheme breaks everywhere against TCU last week. Meanwhile, Quinn Ewers could be back and Dillon Gabriel may miss the game… seven points is nowhere near enough even though it is a rivalry game. Texas by double digits.
Texas Tech +10 at #7 Oklahoma State – 2:30pm
Oklahoma State is ranked 7th but is fraudulent. The Pokes were outgained by Baylor and the defense gave up 6.5 yards per play. What do we do? FADE THE FRAUDS. Texas Tech keeps it close.
#3 Ohio State -26.5 at Michigan State – 3:00pm
I have told you the last two weeks Michigan State’s secondary is awful. They have zero shot to stop the best passing attack in the Big Ten… Ohio State.
Duke -3 at Georgia Tech – 3:00pm
It was very impressive for Georgia Tech to go on the road and beat Pittsburgh. But it was a little fluky with Jeff Sims only having 102 passing yards. Duke has been the better team and hasn’t fired their coach this year, unlike Georgia Tech. Vegas has not caught up on Duke, Blue Devils win by a touchdown.
Army +17 at Wake Forest – 6:30pm
Wake Forest could not stop Army last year when they had 595 yards of total offense. Army will keep this close.
Iowa +4 at Illinois – 6:30pm
No I don’t trust Iowa to score, but I don’t really trust Illinois to score on Iowa either. Take the 4 points and run. (The under 35.5 is tempting)
South Carolina +10.5 at #13 Kentucky – 6:30pm
The battle of the bad offensive lines. Kentucky is favored by way too many points here. Northern Illinois was able to keep it a single digit deficit against Kentucky… South Carolina can do it too. (Update: Kentucky starting QB Will Levis is questionable for the game).
Texas A&M at #1 Alabama -23.5 – 7:00pm
This is a revenge game for Alabama similar to 2020 against LSU. Alabama’s players are motivated to demolish a banged up A&M team (injuries to the starting QB and all across the defense). Look for Bryce Young to play and Alabama to win BIG.
#12 Oregon -13 at Arizona – 8:00pm
Arizona gave up 49 points against Cal… I can’t trust them at all. Oregon’s offense has been rolling and they’ll roll here. Oregon wins big in Tuscon.
BONUS PICK THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE CARD
Kent State -5.5 at Miami (Ohio) – 2:30pm
Kent State put up 736 yards of offense last week against Ohio and I think they’re the best team in the MAC. Miami Ohio continues to have their starting QB Brett Gabbert out. Kent State wins big.
