Welcome to Saturday morning. A glorious time of peace, recuperation, and degenerate behavior after a nice work week. Take a load off, and check out our picks below in this week’s College Footblog for some free winners today. You deserve it.
WVU (+17.5) vs #4 Oklahoma
Who doesn’t love some primetime Mountaineer action? Not to mention against a Sooner squad that’s only managed to beat Tulane and Nebraska by a combined 12 points. The mix between the Sooners lackluster start and the Mountaineers big win at home against Virginia Tech leads me to the only conclusion we can possibly draw: WVU and the points (almost worth a haus, tbh)
#16 Arkansas vs #7 Texas A&M OVER 47.5
Arkansas (pronounced ARK-in-saw for those at home; why it’s not ar-CAN-zis, I’ll never know) is averaging 40 points per game. Both teams have started 3-0 as we’re witnessing the revival of two football programs with diehard fan bases. Texas A&M isn’t having the same luck on offense, points-wise, but I think this SEC clash is capable of getting over 47.5 with relative ease.
Utah State (+9.5) vs Boise State over 69.5
Familiar with the “I believe that we will win” chant? You can thank Utah State for that.
Looking to be on a team averaging 570 yards of total offense per game? You can thank Utah State for that.
Looking for the team that beat Air Force as nine-point dogs? You can thank Utah State for that.
Boise State’s only win in 2021 was in a runaway against UTEP, if that tells you anything. I’m taking Utah State with the points, and then OVER 69.5 total points in this game.
Louisville (+0.5) @ Florida State
Two firsts for Louisville this week: 1) first game on the road, and 2) first conference game of the season. But they’ve beat UCF as seven-points dogs and lost to Kiffin’s Ole Miss, which the Rebels appear to actually be making an effort this year. On paper, this appears to be a pretty close matchup, however the 2021 Florida State Seminoles are in the process of writing “How To Get a Head Coach Fired For Dummies” book after starting 0-3 for the first time since the Gerald Ford Administration (including a loss to FCS Jacksonville State). This line has moved in favor of FSU throughout the week, but I’m not falling for it. Louisville moneyline, baby.
#20 Michigan State (-4.5) vs Nebraska
I don’t know what exactly they’ve figured out, but Michigan State has figured something out to start the season 3-0. Maybe it’s the zero interceptions? Or perhaps the average of 520 yards on offense? Or that they’re 3-for-3 on fourth down conversions? At any rate, stay hot, Sparty. I expect them to carry the momentum into this game against a Nebraska program that’s only seen one winning season since 2015. Sparty on, Wayne. Michigan State with the points.
Bonus Hot Take: PARLAY NCST ML & WVU ML (+3074). I’m not explaining myself, just do it.
