Friday Locks | UNC In The Spotlight

Friday Lock Results
NameLast WeekOverall


Georgia (+4.5) vs Alabama – This year the teacher becomes the master as Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs topple the Crimson Tide. The Georgia defense has surrendered 12.3 points per contest compared to Bama’s 30.3. In fact, UGA has the best defensive numbers in scoring, against the run, and against the pass in the league. It’s ultimately what decides this game for me.

Pitt (+13.5) vs Miami – I’m not sold on the Hurricanes this season despite the favorable ranking. Coming into this game, Pitt is allowing 52 yards on the ground per outing. That will likely put all the pressure on D’Eriq King to perform at a high level. Miami may be the superior team but Pitt can keep this one well under two scores.

Notre Dame (-17) vs Louisville – I may not have watched either of these teams closely. But it appears as though there is something different about the Fighting Irish this season. I’m taking a chance on them this week despite my lack of knowledge about either.


Texas A&M (-5.0) at Mississippi State | The Aggies are fresh off a big win against Florida, while Mississippi State has lost back-to-back games against mediocre SEC teams. I don’t get this line, but I’m all over A&M.

North Carolina (-13.5) at Florida State | I never thought the Tarheels would be two touchdown favorites over the Seminoles, but 2020 is weird, so let’s do it.

Georgia (+4.5) at Alabama | The Crimson Tide struggled against Ole Miss last weekend, while the Bulldogs have had some dominant wins against ranked teams. Oh, and Nick Saban tested positive for COVID-19. Give me Georgia in this one.


SMU (-6.5) at Tulane | SMU has been rolling over their opponents this season for a record of 4-0. They also picked up a top 25 win last week against Memphis. I’ll take the Mustangs winning by at least a touchdown. 

BYU (-5) at Houston | I definitely think this will be a back and forth game. But, it’s only Houston’s second game of the season. BYU having the experience will be the difference maker in this one. 

North Carolina (-13.5) at Florida State | Mack Brown has turned North Carolina into a top 10 team. I do not believe it is all about the hype, they are the real deal. I think they will go to Tallahassee and absolutely dominate. 


Louisville at Notre Dame (-16.5) | It’s safe to say that Louisville is not what we thought they were and Notre Dame is rolling! This shouldn’t be close

Boston College (+12) at Virginia Tech | Boston College has been playing everyone tough and their only loss of the season was by 4 to North Carolina. I think this game is going to be very similar.

North Carolina (-13) at Florida State | Florida State kept it closer than I expected last week but Mack Brown will have the Tar Heels ready this weekend.


SMU (-6.5) at Tulane | If you’ve got nothing going tonight then this game would certainly be worth tuning in on. I expect lots of offense and a high level of entertainment. In the end I’ll take the Mustangs, who are averaging 44 points per game, to cover by at least a touchdown. 

BYU (-4.5) at Houston | Houston turned the ball over 5 times against Tulane, in their only game of the season, and the BYU defense seems to be legitimately good. I like BYU to cover. 

South Carolina (+2.5) vs. Auburn | It’s gonna be an upset in Colombia on Saturday. Give me the Game Cocks to definitely keep this game very tight and most likely pull the upset over the 15th ranked Tigers.
