In this week’s college football action, Chris “The Bear” Fallica has some intriguing picks to consider. Last week, Fallica had a 4-5 record, bringing his season tally to 25-31-1. For a deeper dive into his rationale and to get the full scoop, check out his full article on Fox Sports.
Chris Fallica’s Week 8 Picks:
- NC State under 16.5 total points scored at Clemson
- Georgia (-14.5) vs. Florida
- Texas (-17.5) vs. BYU
- Texas State (+6) vs. Troy
Clemson at NC State
Fallica believes that Clemson will not throw in the towel after their loss to Miami last week. He expects Dabo Swinney to keep his team motivated, making it a long day for the NC State offense.
Pick: NC State under 16.5 total points scored
No. 1 Georgia vs. Florida
According to Fallica, Georgia’s defense will play inspired football, especially since their offense is without its best player, Brock Bowers. He doesn’t expect this game to be close, similar to the last two games in this series.
Pick: Georgia (-14.5) to win by more than 14.5 points
BYU at No. 7 Texas
Fallica thinks that Texas, even with a backup quarterback, should have no trouble at home against BYU. He expects the Texas defense to shut down BYU’s offense and win very easily.
Pick: Texas (-17.5) to win by more than 17.5 points
Troy at Texas State
This is Fallica’s best bet for the week. He notes that Texas State has been performing well and could easily be undefeated. He believes that if Troy wins, it won’t be by more than one score.
Pick: Texas State (+6) to lose by fewer than 6 points (or win outright)
