Year To Date Record: 41-39 ATS
Upset Record: 9-18 -$150
Underdog Pick #1: Missouri Tigers (+210 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys, Saturday, 12:00 ET: This seems to be a pretty darn trendy upset pick this week, but we agree with it. The Tigers are probably one of the best 25 teams in America, but they have played an absolutely brutal schedule this year, including games against Arizona State, Oklahoma, Kansas State. They really haven’t been blown out of the water yet, and they have gone up against some offenses that can really shoot it out like Okie State can. Remember that in the games that Mizzou has played against weak competition of late, it dropped 52 on Iowa State and 69 on Western Illinois. You have to go back almost two full years to find the last home game that the Tigers lost, and that includes knocking off Oklahoma last year. Faurot Field is a house of horrors for the opposition in general.
Underdog Pick #2: Northwestern Wildcats (+160 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Penn State Nittany Lions, Saturday 7:00 ET: And we’re back on the Northwestern bandwagon once again… This is the fourth straight week that we are backing the Cats, and we refuse to relent, knowing that this team has the talent to do some real damage, especially in night games at home. Penn State is a Top 25 team, and it is a very deserving one. Yes, its schedule has been paper thin, and its only loss came against arguably the best team in the country in Alabama. However, these wins of late have just been downright brutal. Purdue by 5, Iowa by 10, Indiana by 6, Temple by 4… The offense for Joe Pa and the gang isn’t getting any better any time in the near future, and the Wildcats are the perfect bunch to take advantage of it.
Underdog Pick #3: North Carolina State Wolfpack (+180 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Virginia Cavaliers, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Our light week of upset picks continues with NC State in a game which features two teams which just flat out stink. We think that Virginia has been overhyped because of this win over Georgia Tech last week, but we saw that flat performance by the Yellow Jackets coming from a mile away. That line stunk from the second that it came out. Remember, this is the same bunch of Hoos that lost to Southern Miss at home and nearly lost to both Idaho and Indiana. Yikes. Needless to say, we don’t really think highly of either team, but at least the Wolfpack looked good last week against Central Michigan. We know that UVA isn’t Central Michigan bad, but we do think that it has the potential to lay a total egg in a letdown game.
