Year To Date Record: 2-7 (-$245)
College Football Upset Pick #1: Utah Utes (+152 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. BYU Cougars, Saturday, 10:00 ET: The Holy War is always a battle, and this year should be no exception. RB John White IV has had a great career against his arch rivals, and we just aren’t so sure that the Cougs are going to be able to stop him even though QB Jordan Wynn’s days of quarterbacking the Utes is said and done with. BYU knows that this is an important game, but it might be caught looking ahead to its trip to the Smurf Turf next week to battle with Boise State. If that’s the case, that would be bad, bad news for the boys from Provo, and we think off of the bad game last week against Utah State, Utah is going to look to come back home and beat up its other rival. This game just reeks of an upset.
College Football Upset Pick #2: North Carolina Tar Heels (+145 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Louisville Cardinals, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Here’s what we have to say about this one: Louisville is a good team from the Big East. North Carolina is a decent team from the ACC. When you consider those two things, the choice really is easy. The Big East is just miles and miles away from the rest of the major college conferences at this point, and it is going to show on Saturday. North Carolina has the talent of a Top 25 team, and though we know that the Cardinals are legitimately a Top 25 squad right now, that doesn’t mean that that should stay that way. They aren’t going to have the more talented team on the field at Papa John’s Stadium, and we think that the oddsmakers know it.
College Football Upset Pick #3: Virginia Cavaliers (+325 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Saturday, 3:30 ET: This is just way, way too many points for the Yellow Jackets to be laying in this game. Last year, it wasn’t a fluke that the Cavaliers were just a game away from going to the ACC Championship Game. This team won on the road at Florida State, and it was able to contain the Ramblin’ Wreck, holding it to just 21 points in a mid-October clash. UVA is taking a bad rap due to the fact that it barely beat (and shouldn’t have beaten) Penn State last week, but it just isn’t justified to us. The Cavvies are the better of these two teams as we see it.
