Year To Date Record: 3-9 (-$293)
College Football Upset Pick #1: Rutgers Scarlet Knights (+310 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Arkansas Razorbacks, Saturday, 7:00 ET: Are the Hogs finished? We think that the question is definitely worth asking at this point. They have lost back to back games, and they were just called out by their quarterback, QB Tyler Wilson for “giving up” against the Crimson Tide. Rutgers went on the road last week and took out USF, and now, it has had a long week to prepare for coming on the road to Fayetteville for this one. This is one of those games that could go either way. The Scarlet Knights could come out, frustrate the Arkansas offense, and ultimately run away with the game in the end, or Arkansas could come out, take a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and never look back. We’ll take our chances that it is the former at least one out of four times.
College Football Upset Pick #2: Oregon State Beavers (+250 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ UCLA Bruins, Saturday, 3:30 ET: This is probably going to be the direction which we go for quite some time, as we think that the Bruins are overrated at this point. QB Brett Hundley could be hurting with an ankle sprain, and the Beavers are well rested, having played just one game in the first three weeks of the year. QB Sean Mannion could be the better of the two signal callers, and Oregon State could have the better of these two defenses. Just looking at the line movement in this one suggests that the Beavers are the right side, and we’ll take our chances that they can go into the Rose Bowl and win this game. There are just too many “could be”s for us to want to back the Bruins in any way, shape, or form.
College Football Upset Pick #3: Michigan Wolverines (+195 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Saturday, 7:30 ET: At some point, the Fighting Irish are going to come back to earth and revert to the 9-3 team that we still believe that they are. QB Denard Robinson is the better of these two quarterbacks, and Michigan has the better of the two defenses. Sure, the Golden Domers have home field advantage, but they also have a bad history here against Big Blue, namely in the form of three straight losses by exactly four points. Had that Michigan/Alabama game never happened, Michigan might have been favored in this one. Big Blue, in our opinion, should win this game half the time.
College Football Upset Pick #4: Akron Zips (+10000 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Tennessee Volunteers, Saturday, 7:30 ET: Eh, 100 to 1? Why not. It’s worth a stab on the Zips in our eyes for a quarter of a unit. Tennessee could come into this game with no fire whatsoever, and if that turns out to be the case, a very hungry Akron side could at least conceivably be able to put enough points on the board to give the Volunteers fits, especially the way that they were mauled last week by the Gators.
College Football Upset Pick #5: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (+125 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Illinois Fighting Illini, Saturday, 8:00 ET: And the next game in the long line of games that shouldn’t be referred to as upsets… A very good Louisiana Tech team goes on the road to Champaign to take on the Illini, who we still contend are one of the worst teams in the bottom of a Big Ten conference that has a lot of garbage in it. This is just a bad line, and the world is going to find out just how good the Bulldogs are when they come to town and beat the snot out of the Illini. We expect a double digit victory for the visitors.
College Football Upset Pick #6: Utah Utes (+200 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Arizona State Sun Devils, Saturday, 10:00 ET: We were impressed last week with the way that the Sun Devils competed with Missouri, but in the end, it might not have been all that great of a game. The ‘Zou might not be a bowl team this year, and it didn’t have QB James Franklin in the fold either. QB Jon Hays has the Utes moving right now, and fresh off of their upset of BYU last week, we think that they can get the job done on the road in the desert as well.
