Year To Date Record: 74-74 ATS
Upset Record: 19-31 +$985
Underdog Pick #1: UTEP Miners (+330 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Central Florida Knights, Friday, 7:00 ET: The one Friday upset that we have on tap is in a game that just doesn’t make all that much sense to us. UTEP has been a much better team this year than anyone really prognosticated. Sure, the Miners barely survived games against Stony Brook and New Mexico State at the outset of the year, but they also blew away Tulane, comfortably coasted past Colorado State, knocked off an East Carolina team that still has a shot to go to a bowl game, and really stayed competitive against teams like Houston, Southern Miss, and SMU. Last week’s blowout loss against Tulsa at home came without QB Nick Lamaison under center. Lamaison is back, and the Miners need this game to be able to go to a bowl. UCF just continues to shoot itself in the foot time after time, and that just isn’t going to cut it. The Knights have to be disappointed that they aren’t going to a bowl game for sure now after winning Conference USA and the Liberty Bowl last year. UCF has only beaten one team by more than 10 since September 10th, that being Memphis 41-0. UTEP has a real shot to come down to the Sunshine State and gain bowl eligibility.
Underdog Pick #2: Northwestern Wildcats (+200 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Michigan State Spartans, Saturday 12:00 ET: We’ve been on the Wildcats all year long for upsets, and that isn’t changing this week either. The Spartans have absolutely zilch to play for in this game, and we tend to think that it is going to show. Northwestern’s offense has been rolling up and down the field over the course of these last few weeks against some of the best that the Big Ten has to offer. Now, the Cats can take down one of the teams that is going to be in the league title game and improve their bowl positioning dramatically in the process. This line has been coming down all week long for a reason.
Underdog Pick #3: Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (+425 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Arizona Wildcats, Saturday, 4:00 ET: This atrocious season for Arizona is finally going to come to a close, and we tend to think that it is going to show on Saturday night. The Cajuns are flying high right now, knowing that they are going to a bowl game when this one is said and done, and they have to feel like they are playing on house money this week. ULL doesn’t have a win quite like this on the slate, but it has played better against some of the big boys on its schedule this year than Arizona has. Don’t be overly surprised, on the eve of the New Orleans Bowl, if the Ragin’ Cajuns come out to the desert and finish off this regular season on a high note.
Underdog Pick #4: Florida Atlantic Owls (+180 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. UAB Blazers, Saturday, 4:00 ET: Let’s get one thing settled about this game right away. These two teams stink. And they stink worse than your average skunk. To say that we think anything can happen in this one is an understatement. This is the second to last game in the illustrious coaching career of Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger, and he is going to want to love to go out with at least one win in his final campaign. FAU really hasn’t even challenged in the majority of its games this year, scoring seven points or fewer five times in 10 tries. However, UAB has one of the worst defenses in America. You’re seeing an odd looking line this week due to the fact that the last impression that we have of the Blazers is pulling the upset off at home against Southern Miss to knock the Golden Eagles out of the BCS picture. Don’t be fooled, though. There’s a reason that this team was beaten by 45 by Marshall. The upset could be in the cards in this one.
