Friday Locks Week 4 | Oh The Shame!

We’ll get it figured out…eventually. Until then, your best course of action is to look at our picks and absolutely go the other way. Just another example of why gambling is dumb!

Friday Lock Results
NameLast WeekOverall


West Virginia (+6.5) at Oklahoma State | I like the Mountaineers chances of an upset on the road. Their defensive line is legit, and the Cowboys struggled tremendously on the offensive line in their season opener. 

Louisiana Lafayette (-11.5) vs. Georgia Southern | The Rajin’ Cajuns barely escaped with victory last week and I think they will look to bounce back against Georgia Southern. A lot of people expressed their doubts about Louisiana Lafayette after their performance a week ago, so there will be a lot to prove in week three. 

Army (+13) at Cincinnati | I think Army keeps this one close. They’ve already got two wins under their belt this season and have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 79-7. Don’t be surprised if the Black Knights even sneak away with the victory on Saturday. 


Georgia Southern at Louisiana (-11.5) | The Ragin’ Cajuns have cost me two weeks in a row. I picked against them in Week 1, and they covered, and I picked for them in Week 2, and they didn’t cover. I’m giving them another chance this week. Louisiana by a couple TDs.

Louisville (+3.0) at Pittsburgh | The Cardinals bounce back this week with a big win over higher-ranked Pitt. 

Army (+13.5) at Cincinnati | I’m not picking the Black Knights to win, but I’m not NOT picking them to win. I am, however, picking Army to cover against Cincinnati. Heck, give me Army by a field goal.


Army +14 vs Cincinnati | While the two teams come into this meeting ranked for the first time in a long time, I do believe the Bearcats are the better overall team. That, however, does not mean Army will not put up a fight. With an offense built to control the clock, look for this one to stay too close for comfort.

Alabama (-27.5) vs Missouri | Introducing a new head coach to the SEC, the Missouri Tigers have a long way to go before being able to compete with the top of the conference. Needless to say, it’s not an easy task drawing the Crimson Tide in the opening week of league play but someone has to fill the role. I expect Bama to control the game from start to finish.

Kansas State (+28.5) vs Oklahoma | You have to admit, the Sooners looked impressive in the opening thirty minutes of play against Missouri State. Taking a step up in competition, there are a few health concerns along the offensive line that may prove to be an obstacle. Still Oklahoma wins this one comfortably but by nearly 30 points is asking a lot of a young offensive set of players.


Florida State at Miami (-11) | D’Eriq King looked the part of what we were expecting last season. I am still not a believer in Florida State but a rivalry game does make me a little nervous but if Miami comes out focused like they did last week they should make quick work of the Seminoles. Hammer the over if still at 54!

Georgia (-28) at Arkansas | Georgia is really good and Arkansas is incredibly bad. Georgia should cover before half. The talent levels aren’t close. 

Army +13.5 at Cincinnati | I’m sure a lot of OU fans remember what can happen when you play a good Army team. This team is confident and will be ready to take advantage of Cincinnati’s mistakes. Also I would really consider the over at 45.


Central Florida (-27) at East Carolina | The Knights made their season debut last week and quarterback Dillon Gabriel was spectacular. Throwing for 417 yards, and 4 scores, Gabriel led #13 UCF to a 49-21 win over Georgia Tech. I’m looking for another big win again on Saturday when they travel to East Carolina. 

Syracuse (+7.5) vs. Georgia Tech | I can’t figure either of these teams out but I like the Orange being at home and keeping it close.  

Georgia (-26) at Arkansas | Here I am with another big spread. Neither of these teams has taken the field this season and I think that heavily favors the Bulldogs with a much more established coaching staff. Give me UGA in a route.
