OVERALL RECORD: 216-173-5 (55.5%)
2022 SEASON RECORD: 45-34-4 (57%)
TGIS was HOT AGAIN in week 7 going 8-4. We are now a blistering 57% heading up towards our goal of 60%. on the year. Only way we are going to get there is to keep the win streak going… LETS GET TO THE PICKS:
Week 8 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
#9 UCLA +6 at #10 Oregon – 2:30pm
Expect a rainy game as that is what is in the forecast all weekend in Eugene, Oregon. These are two explosive offenses which could be a preview of the Pac-12 championship. Both teams will rely on the run, but could still hit explosives against the defense. Also both Dorian Thomas-Robinson and Bo Nix are completing above 70%. How will the rain affect the matchup? We will find out… Just give me the points
Pick: 35-31 UCLA
Top Picks of the Week
Virginia at Georgia Tech -3 – Thursday 6:30pm
During the college football year it is important to find the frauds and terrible teams and fade them. It is where the term “fade the frauds” started. Well in this case Virginia is a fraud, bad, no good for nothing team. Their offensive line is awful. Their offensive style is awful. Georgia Tech wins this big. FADE THE FRAUDS.
Cincinnati at SMU +3.5 – 11:00am
Nobody has been watching Cincinnati since the Arkansas game, but let me fill you in… they’ve been been messing around all year. The Bearcats had a really close game with a bad South Florida team and now they are laying points on the road? No thank you, give me Tanner Mordecai, SMU and the points.
Kansas +8 at Baylor OVER 58 – 11:00am
Both of these teams were just in shoot outs totaling 83 points and 94 points. Now we get a point total of just 58 points? Sign me up. Kansas backup quarterback Jason Bean wasn’t too bad scoring 42 points against Oklahoma. Oh ya… Baylor also could be without their starting quarterback Blake Sharpen. Expect another shoot out and Kansas to keep it close.
#14 Syracuse at #5 Clemson UNDER 51.5 – 11:00am
Syracuse wasn’t able to score over 24 points against Virginia or NC State. Do you think they’ll be able to score points against Clemson? No. Syracuse’s defense is also sneaky good. Expect a low scoring ugly game.
BYU -6.5 at Liberty – 2:30pm
Liberty was just in a tight one with Gardner Webb. I know they are 6-1, but their strength of schedule is terrible. BYU gets it back on track with a double digit win.
#20 Texas -6 at #11 Oklahoma State – 2:30pm
Oklahoma State has their homecoming this weekend which is one of the biggest homecomings in the nation… but that doesn’t matter. Texas is coming off a letdown game against Iowa State. But they will get right this weekend as they face the Pokes’ 126th ranked passing defense. Texas wins big and takes control of their Big 12 championship hopes.
#24 Mississippi State at #6 Alabama UNDER 61.5 – 6:00pm
Mississippi State hasn’t scored a touchdown in Bryant Denny since Dak Prescott in 2014. I’m not sure what Alabama offense shows up though so we are just taking the under.
Texas A&M at South Carolina UNDER 46.5 – 6:30pm
Texas A&M’s unders have hit all year. Their young defensive front is maturing, but their offense hasn’t figured it out yet. This will be a very low scoring game.
Minnesota at #16 Penn State -4 – 6:30pm
Penn State scheduled this as their white out game. And we absolutely love them in this spot as Minnesota may not have Tanner Morgan for this game. Minnesota only had 38 total passing yards without him against Illinois… Penn State will bounce back after a bad week in Michigan.
#17 Kansas State +3.5 at #8 TCU – 7:00pm
TCU had a major comeback win in OT last week against Oklahoma State. But Oklahoma State was controlling and winning that game through three quarters. I can see TCU, 90th ranked defense, having trouble with Adrian Martinez’s legs and the run game. This is a tough spot for TCU with the Wildcats coming off a bye week. I actually like Kansas State to win outright.
Washington -7 at Cal – 9:30pm
Cal just lost to the worst FBS team, Colorado, in college football and has shown zero offense. Washington will be able to outscore them and blow them out with Michael Pennix. Washington wins big.
