Year To Date Record: 39-32 ATS
Upset Record: 6-15 -$410
Underdog Pick #1: Mississippi State Bulldogs (+120 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. South Carolina Gamecocks, Saturday, 12:20 ET: We can’t help but wonder if things are going to fall apart for the Gamecocks in these next few weeks. South Carolina really hasn’t looked all that stellar for the most part this year, and now, it has to go on the road on a brutal test in Starkville. Mississippi State has all sorts of quarterback problems, but we have to think that it will come to play in what amounts to be one of the biggest games of the season. The Dogs were able to take down a lot of big time teams at home last season, and they’ll be able to slay the Cocks on Saturday.
Underdog Pick #2: Auburn Tigers (+110 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Florida Gators, Saturday 7:00 ET: Auburn isn’t exactly the greatest team in the SEC this year, but we know that the Tigers have been able to play with some big time teams. All of a sudden, that loss against Clemson doesn’t look all that bad, knowing that the Tigers are in the Top 10 in the land. QB Barrett Trotter is going to have his work cut out for him against this Florida defense, but at home, he should be okay. The real questions are going to be for the Florida offense, as QB John Brantley is still out of the fold. No matter which one of the youngsters are going to end up going against these Tigers, they aren’t going to be able to pull off this victory on the road. The wrong team is absolutely favored in this game.
Underdog Pick #3: UCF Knights (+150 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ SMU Mustangs, Saturday, 3:30 ET: UCF hasn’t had the greatest season in the world, and we have some real questions right now about this offense, but we have to remember that it has played against some reasonable defenses and has played in some awful weather at times. Everyone is high on the Mustangs right now after their upset of TCU, but we just aren’t all that sure. Last year, UCF absolutely dominated the ‘Stangs at Bright House Networks Stadium in the Conference USA Championship Game, which propelled the team to its first bowl win, the Liberty Bowl. This is a big game for an up and coming program, and if the Knights want to get into the Big East, this is the type of game that it really should win.
Underdog Pick #4: Northwestern Wildcats (+220 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Iowa Hawkeyes, Saturday, 7:00 ET: This is the third straight week that we have taken a chance on the Wildcats. We just believe that this team has the ability to win games in this conference now that it has QB Dan Persa back under center. Iowa hasn’t proven anything to us this year. We’re not convinced that the win over Pittsburgh, especially in that come from behind type of fashion was all that special, and we know that the loss to Iowa State was brutal. The Hawkeyes are probably rightfully favored playing at Kinnick Stadium, but there’s no way that the Cats should be more than +150 or so. Remember that this Northwestern team was the one that ended Iowa’s perfect season two years ago right here in the cornfields of Iowa.
Underdog Pick #5: Louisiana Monroe Warhawks (+260 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Troy Trojans, Saturday, 7:00 ET: These Sun Belt games are wacky, and there are often some tremendously unpredictable results. In this case, we can see how an upset can happen. Don’t confuse ULM as your average 1-4 team. Don’t worry about these four losses. The schedule has been brutal and last week’s loss to Arkansas State was against another Sun Belt team that we think has the ability to pull off some upsets this year. QB Kolton Browning is one of the better Sun Belt quarterbacks, and he has a team on his side that can shut down QB Corey Robinson. The Trojans lost this fixture last year, and we can totally see them doing the exact same thing this week as well.
