After a pretty good week last week and a decent start to the season, we back for our fourth installment of best bets. We ended last weekend with a 11-7 overall record which takes us to 27-20-1 overall (.563) 8 of those wins last week came in NCAA games in which we showed a 8-3 record. Looking to stay hot with NCAA and bounce back in NFL this week. Time make some picks!
Air Force v. San Diego State 9 pm Friday: SDSU -11
Getting started with some Friday night MWC action here. This Air Force team is coming off a big time win over rivals Navy last week but this SDSU team might be too much. The Aztecs have the 2nd ranked rush defense in the nation, 5-1 ATS and 5-0 SU recently against Air Force.
Minnesota v. Ohio State 12pm: Over 60
This is the type of game I love taking the over in, only because we could see Ohio State score 60 by themselves. Blow out here take the over.
Duke v. Georgia Tech 12:20 pm: Duke +2.5
Georgia Tech is coming off of two straight games scoring in the 60’s so I think they are getting some love from bettors heading into this week. A solid Duke team here that should be able to handle the Yellow Jackets on the road. This Duke team has won at Northwestern and Baylor this year so they seem to be alright in road games. Take the points.
Toledo v. Eastern Michigan 12pm: Toledo -2.5
In the last 10 meetings between these two, Toledo is 10-0 straight up and covered the spread 7 of those times. I like Toledo on the road here to win by at least a field goal probably more.
Texas A&M v. South Carolina 3:30 pm: A&M -2.5
The only two games USC has played some real competition they lost by double digits both times.When Georgia came to town they handled the Gamecocks pretty easily. The Aggies come in to Columbia and take care of business.
UCF v. Memphis 3:30 pm: Over 81
Yes, you read that right. Take over 81. Vegas could make the over/under 95 and I would still go over. They combined for 117 points last year. Both teams re top 10 in rushing per game. Number 7 and 11 in points per game as well. This is a game you’re going want to watch tomorrow. Take the over and sit back and watch the show.
Other NCAA Week 7 Picks:
Purdue v. Illinois 3:30 pm – Purdue +10.5
Miami v. UVA 7pm – UVA +6.5
Houston v. ECU 7pm – ECU +16
WVU v. Iowa State 7pm – Iowa State +6.5
NFL Week 6 Best Bets
Cardinals v. Vikings 1 pm: Vikings -10.5
Both teams coming off a win here but I think the Vikings win a little bigger. At home at a time of the year in which weather matters. Vikings roll to an easy win.
Chargers v. Browns 1 pm: Chargers -1
I lost betting against the Browns last week but I still do not trust this team or coaching staff. Chargers get a road win here.
Bears v. Dolphins 1 pm: Bears -3.5
Tannehill looked pretty bad last week against the Bengals D. The Bears have one of the best defenses in the league, I make your team that much better kind of defense. Bears cover on the road.
Broncos v. Rams 4:05 pm: Over 51.5
Chiefs v. Patriots 8:30 pm: Pats – 3
This is a true test for the phenomena that is Patrick Mahomes this year. QBs age 25 and under are 1-41 in Gillette Stadium against Brady, Patriots win this game in typical Patriots fashion. Oh, the only QB to win in Foxboro who was 25 or younger, Kaepernick.
Other NFL Best Bets
Rams v. Broncos – Over 51.5
Ravens v. Titans – Titans +3
Panthers v. Redskins – Under 44.5
Bucs v. Falcons – Bucs +3
