Year To Date Record: 20-13 ATS
Upset Record: 3-6 +$85
Underdog Pick #1: North Carolina Tar Heels (+220 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Saturday, 12:00 ET: Welcome to your first legitimate test, Georgia Tech. Sure, we know that the Ramblin’ Wreck have been dropping all sorts of points on the scoreboard to start the season, especially after running up over 750 yards of offense on the Kansas Jayhawks last week. Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. The Tar Heels have a tough, hardnosed team, and they aren’t going to be out-physicalled at the line of scrimmage like these lesser foes that G-Tech has scheduled thus far. We wouldn’t be overly surprised if there was a major upset in the cards to start off the ACC season, as there is far too much respect being given here to Head Coach Paul Johnson’s crew.
Underdog Pick #2: Louisiana Monroe Warhawks (+500 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Iowa Hawkeyes, Saturday 12:00 ET: It’s a big, big underdog that we’re dealing with here, but there is a big, big prize at the end of it as well. If you’re the Hawkeyes, you have to feel good about that massive comeback last week at home to beat the Pitt Panthers. However, you also have to wonder how you got yourself into that position as well. We just don’t know if Head Coach Kirk Ferentz really has a good squad or not this year. What we’ve seen from the Warhawks, we’ve liked against the Florida State Seminoles and TCU Horned Frogs, and with this being their third big time road test of the year, we think that they really could be primed for an upset. We wouldn’t be surprised one bit if this one went right down to the wire and if QB Kolton Browning wasn’t able to pull off the upset in the end. Iowa’s defense isn’t nearly as good as those of Florida State and TCU.
Underdog Pick #3: Oklahoma State Cowboys (+165 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Texas A&M Aggies, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Has there ever been a game pitting two Top 10 teams against each other with such little hype as this one? The Cowboys and Aggies are playing each other for the final time as Big XII foes, and you can bet that the rest of the conference is hoping that the Pokes send A&M packing in style. College Station is a nightmare to go into, but if there’s an offense that can get the job done and silence the “12th Man,” this is it. QB Brandon Weeden is probably the more talented of the two quarterbacks, and WR Justin Blackmon is certainly going to be the best receiver on the field. The question is whether the Pokes can play enough defense to slow down QB Ryan Tannehill and company. We think that they can, and that they’ll win this one nearly half the time, making it well worth our while to back the Cowboys.
Underdog Pick #4: Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles (+130 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Virginia Cavaliers, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Simply put, Virginia just isn’t all that great. Head Coach Mark Fedora and the Golden Eagles won this fixture two years ago in Hattiesburg, and though we must admit that the Wahoo’s have a better team now than they did then, we are still optimistic that the Cavs should be laying points in this game. This was a team that just barely squeaked by the lowly Indiana Hoosiers, one of the worst teams in the AQ schools two weeks ago, and it is one that is still trying to figure out how to stick around with the modest teams in the ACC, most of which are right there on Southern Miss’ level. Take the names off of the fronts of the jerseys in this one. The Conference USA team has the better squad and will prove it with an upset in Charlottesville.
