Oklahoma at Kansas +10
Kansas has had two weeks to prepare for Oklahoma after a tough loss to Oklahoma State. The Jayhawks will perform well at home and potentially even have a shot at beating Oklahoma.
Indiana at Penn State -31.5
Penn State to dominate Indiana, especially after their tough loss to Ohio State. He predicts that Penn State will score 45+ points, while Indiana might not score at all.
Virginia +18.5 at Miami
Another tight game for both Virginia and Miami. He notes that Miami hasn’t beaten a power five conference team by more than 15 points all year, and Virginia has been improving in their last three ACC games.
BYU +17.5 at Texas
Despite BYU’s tough schedule and recent losses, the spread is too steep. He thinks Texas’s new quarterback and offensive issues make BYU a good pick.
South Carolina at Texas A&M -14
Texas A&M’s defensive line as a significant advantage over South Carolina’s offensive line. He predicts a 35-14 win for the Aggies.
Duke at Louisville, The Under -46.5
Low-scoring game, predicting a final score of 17-13. He believes neither team has the ability to blow out the other.
Georgia at Florida +14.5 and The Over 48.5
Both teams will have some offensive success, predicting a 35-24 win for Georgia. He advises betting on Florida and the over.
Oregon at Utah, The Over 48.5
High-scoring game, predicting a final score of 31-27 in favor of the Ducks.
Tennessee -3.5 at Kentucky
Tennessee is the better team in almost every aspect and predicts a win by 10 points for the Vols.
Ohio State at Wisconsin +14.5
Line is too large for what he expects to be a low-scoring game. He picks Wisconsin for the cover.
