Year To Date Record: 50-48 ATS
Upset Record: 11-20 -$15

Underdog Pick #1: Iowa Hawkeyes (+160 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Michigan Wolverines, Saturday, 12:00 ET: We’re going to double dip on the Hawkeyes this week, playing them both as an upset pick and as an ATS pick because we really believe in them to get the job done at Kinnick Stadium. Michigan is a generally soft team, and you’re not going to find a team that is more intense, especially in its home stadium, than Iowa. Head Coach Kirk Ferentz’s team gave up an easy one last week at Minnesota, but it will make no mistakes in the cornfields, where they are a perfect 5-0 this year. Don’t be all that shocked if the Hawkeyes come out and turn the Legends Division of the Big Ten upside down with a big time victory.

Underdog Pick #2: UCLA Bruins (+285 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Arizona State Sun Devils, Saturday 7:30 ET: The Sun Devils can’t afford to take this game lightly, as they know that losing it could all of a sudden put them in some trouble in terms of winning the Pac-12 South. However, that might be the only way that Head Coach Rick Neuheisel keeps his job. The Bruins’ boss did recover from that loss to Arizona with a win last week, but again, without a shot at the Pac-12 title, we just don’t see him being retained at the end of the year, likely getting fired before the team ever has a shot at going to a bowl game. We just hate these Sun Devils this year, as we think that they are vastly overrated and are not worthy of a ranking in the Top 25 in the nation. They’ll be exposed by UCLA, which will be playing for its coach’s life in this one.

Underdog Pick #3: Washington State Cougars (+300 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ California Golden Bears, Saturday, 6:30 ET: Is it just us, or are the Golden Bears just not all that great? Recent setbacks have had the world going against Wazzu once again, but it is clear that this team is good enough to win this game. Just remember that the Cougs were able to stick in front of a big time number at Autzen Stadium last week, and that might be just the momentum that they need to keep their bowl dreams alive against a Cal team with Head Coach Jeff Tedford that badly cannot afford a slip in this one. It’ll certainly be close, and we tend to think that there is going to be an upset when push really comes to shove. In the Cougs we trust!

Underdog Pick #4: East Carolina Pirates (+280 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, Saturday, 4:00 ET: The Golden Eagles are as good as it gets in Conference USA, which is a solid conference in its own right. That being said, ECU has a great passing attack that has just started to more or less get it together. After a dreadful 1-4 start to the season, the team has won three straight games, albeit against a significantly easier schedule, and the team has scored at least 34 points in all three games. This is a dangerous, dangerous spot on the road for the Golden Eagles for a second straight week after surviving that trip to the Sun Bowl last week. SMS might be looking forward to that home game with a traditional rival, UCF next week, and that might be cause for concern against a team that we think when push comes to shove, will at least be eligible for a bowl game.
