|Friday Locks Week 8 Results|
Oklahoma (-24.5) v. Kansas State | The Wildcats looked pretty good a couple of weeks ago in their win against Oklahoma State in Stillwater, but the Sooners look significantly better than that in the beatdown against TCU on Saturday. This line is huge, but I think the Sooners will cover just fine.
Kentucky at Missouri (-7.0) | I can understand the Wildcats being the underdog here, but I don’t see the Tigers winning this one, let alone by more than a touchdown.
Washington State (+3.0) at Stanford | Two words: Mike Leach. The Cougars have got to be riding high after another big win over Oregon, but I think they’re just getting started. Stanford is about to lose for the third time in four weeks.
Texas -3.5 at Oklahoma State | Oklahoma State has gotten the best of Texas in recent years, but that’s about to change on Saturday. The Longhorns reign is officially back, and they are looking for revenge. I’ll take Texas by a bunch on Saturday.
Washington State + 3 at Stanford | Mike Leach has something good going on at Washington State. Even though they are playing on the road this weekend, I think they are the much better team. Give me the Cougars by a touchdown this weekend.
Kentucky +7 @ Missouri | Kentucky continues to get absolute zero respect. This team is much better than Missouri, and they will win by a couple of scores.
Clemson (-17) vs FSU | Continuing to solidify themselves as a national title contender, Clemson no longer faces a controversy. With Trevor Lawrence at the helm, the offense has been improving. However, it the defense that has allowed for the growth while providing a cushion during each outing. It’ll be the same story against FSU as the Tigers cruise to another large victory.
Navy (+24) vs Notre Dame |Against the service academies, time of possession is going to continue to be an issue. I fully believe that the Fighting Irish take home the win but I’m not convinced that it’ll be by more than three scores.
Arizona (+9.5) vs Oregon | Throughout the duration of the year, Arizona continues to take better opponents to the wire. Losing a couple of close games, this team simply can’t find a way to get over the hurdle. Yet, Oregon has found themselves on the losing side of close bouts as well. I believe this one follows the narrative. Could the Wildcats finally finish off a ranked opponent?
Wisconsin (-4.5) at Northwestern | Last week I picked against the Badgers and ended up being wrong. This week I’m changing it up and taking Wisconsin by at least a touchdown over Northwestern…although I’d settle for just a five-point win.
Kentucky (+7) at Missouri | Wildcats are seven-point dogs on the road against Missouri’s defense. Yes, please! This is my “easy money” pick this week.
Texas (-3) at Oklahoma State | Both teams are coming off a bye but Oklahoma State was spiraling going into it. Hate to say it but I think this sets up for a comfortable Texas win.
