Another week of mediocrity. At least I’m not putting units on every pick, or else… well…

Week 8 is an opportunity for a fresh start.


Florida -5.5 at South Carolina

Can Will Muschamp keep the momentum going? I don’t think so, despite the reading glasses bump he’s gotten. Kyle Trask had a decent game in Death Valley, I bet he keeps that going against a less-talented defense.

Houston -22.5 at Connecticut

No matter what problems Dana Holgorsen is having in H-Town, they aren’t near as bad as the ones in… Storrs.

Central Michigan -10.5 at Bowling Green State

BGSU is 4-6 in its last 10 against the spread, but they aren’t a good team. Little tidbit: the under has hit in 9 of BGSU’s last 10 games.

Washington +3.0 vs. Oregon

How real is Oregon? Is Washington able to put their real playmakers on the field? I think Petersen takes this one from Cristobal.

Navy -14 vs. South Florida

I know two scores is a big line for an option team, but consider the opponent.

Texas A&M -6.5 at Ole Miss

I think this is the first time the Aggies have appeared in my picks all year. No matter what the potential dysfunction in College Station might look like, they can and will out-talent and out-coach Matt Luke.

Washington State -12.5 vs. Colorado

I don’t see Colorado matching up with Washington State’s offense and this one is in Pullman.

Wake Forest -2.0 vs. Florida State

I thought about skipping this one but I think the Demon Deacons can get this done at home and continue Florida State’s crisis season.

Penn State -9.5 vs. Michigan

White out and Michigan’s abysmal record in its last 20 ranked road games (1-19 SU, 5-15 ATS) makes this one an easy pick.

Stanford -3.5 vs. UCLA

No faith in Chip Kelly here.

A $1 placed on ten team parlay with these picks would net $590
