Michigan State at Rutgers -5.5 and the under 40.5
Travis believes that once Michigan State fired coach Mel Tucker, their season was over. Since his firing, the Spartans have lost 3 straight games by large margins and scored very little.
He thinks Rutgers wins 24-7, easily covering the -5.5 spread and going under the 40.5 total for a double win.
Texas A&M at Tennessee -3.5, Texas A&M at Tennessee under 56.5
Travis feels both teams have good defenses and run games, so it will be a lower scoring defensive battle similar to Texas A&M vs Alabama last week. He thinks Tennessee’s two weeks to prepare at home gives them the edge to win by a touchdown, something like 27-20.
Florida at South Carolina -2
Travis believes South Carolina will rebound after tough losses and win at home. He thinks Florida isn’t very good this year, so he is guaranteeing a South Carolina win by a touchdown.
Oregon at Washington -2
Travis believes Washington’s home crowd will give them the edge in this matchup of Pac-12 unbeatens. He sees Washington winning a close one, 34-31 behind Michael Penix Jr outplaying Bo Nix.
Illinois at Maryland -13.5
Travis loves betting on Maryland. He thinks their offense will score plenty while Illinois struggles to score, leading to a Maryland win by 20.
Iowa at Wisconsin under 36.5
Travis expects an ugly, low-scoring snoozefest similar to Iowa vs Purdue last week. He sees Wisconsin winning 17-13.
Louisville at Pittsburgh +7.5
Travis thinks Louisville will have a letdown after their big home win last week. He expects Louisville to struggle on the road, making it a close game with Pittsburgh covering the 7.5 spread.
Miami at North Carolina -3.5
Travis believes Miami will have a hangover from their heartbreaking loss last week. He expects North Carolina to win at home by 10 behind quarterback Drake Maye.
Mizzou +2.5 at Kentucky, Mizzou at Kentucky over 52.5
Travis loves the over in this matchup, expecting both defenses to struggle and a lot of points. He also likes Mizzou as an underdog to win outright.
Southern California at Notre Dame -2, Southern California at Notre Dame under 61.5
Travis expects Notre Dame to slow the game down and win a low scoring affair by a late field goal, 31-28. So he likes Notre Dame covering the small spread and the under hitting.
