I will be watching many football games on Saturday. However, the only game I will be betting on Saturday will be the Civil War. RB Rodgers for OSU may not play and I think that with Oregon coming off a bye week and seeking revenge from last year, the Ducks are the correct play on Saturday.
Predicted Final Score: 30-27 Oregon.
Oregon +3 $300
Oregon ML $50
Texas A&M +36 is the play tonight. $60
This is an inter-state rival Big 12 game and getting +36 is a gift. Texas A&M will play hard tonight and should be able to move the ball at times against a bend, but not break D from the Longhorns. While the Longhorns may want to run it up tonight, there main concern will be to just win the game.
Predicted Final Score: 44-21 Texas wins, but does not cover.
All plays are one unit = $60
Kaepernick has three consecutive 100-yard rushing games and has accounted for 897 yards and nine touchdowns in his last three contests. Taua, the sophomore RB has a team-high 1,284 rushing yards and is averaging 7.3 per carry. I think Nevada will be all day and could get the straight up home win.
The Rebels are relatively injury free. TE David Traxler is questionable with a sore back, but most starters will play. FB Jason Cook is coming off a concussion. Junior wideout Shay Hodge is nursing a heel bruise and also will suit up. LSU has not impressed me too much this year and I think Ole Miss could knock off LSU and get the straight up win after watching LSU play Troy last week.
Oregon St +2.5
OSU looked solid aginst Cal last week and did a good job of shutting down Javid Best. I see OSU containing the Zona rushing attack. Mike Thomas is coming off a poor game and he will be covered all day long by Brandon Hughes, OSU top corner. This is another dog I see getting the SU win.
Pitt comes to play each week with a solid defense and a great rushing attack. I like Pitt coming into this battle off a bye week. The stat that was most appealing in scouting this game was the 25 sacks that Pitt has this year to lead the Big East.
Texas Tech +7
I think this game will be won in the trenches and the O line of Tech is most impressive. I have not been as impressed with OK since LB Reynolds went down. Tech should have success and while they most likely will not win SU, having a 7 point head start feels good, as I think this line will start to lower by game time.
FSU did not look sharp last week against BC. I think they maybe looking ahead to their battle with the Gators next week. In addition, no word on the 5 WR that were out last week, plus the injury of starting CB McClure puts this FSU squad iffy in this spot. While I think there may be more talent on the FSU side, Maryland at home in this spot has beaten 6 ranked teams in a row.
