|Friday Lock Results|
North Carolina (+3) at Miami | Every time Miami has been tested they have not done well and North Carolina has been playing good football of late. I think they will win straight up, but I’ll take the points if given.
San Diego State at BYU (-16) | After a disappointing loss last week, I expect Zach Wilson and company to show no mercy and make a statement.
USC at UCLA (+3) | I think Chip Kelly finally has things moving in the right direction, and I am not a believer in USC this season. I think this game matters a whole lot to the Bruins, and they come out with the W.
Iowa (+1) vs Wisconsin | The No. 16 Hawkeyes have claimed five straight wins with four of those coming by double-digits. On the flip side of the equation, Wisconsin only scored seven points in their most recent game and sit 2-2 on the year. This one seems like a no brainer as the two programs are clearly heading in different directions at the moment.
Florida (-23) vs LSU | In Gainesville, the Gators host the defending national champions. However, it looks as though the Tigers will finish the season with a losing record… Possessing a potent offense led by Kyle Trask, I’m not sure that LSU can do much to slow this Florida team down. Scoring in bunches, I’ll take UF to cover.
Georgia (-13) vs Missouri | I believe the odds makers are buying into the fact that the Tigers have scored 41 and 50 points in back to back games. However, that’s been against inferior defenses. In my opinion, Mizzou is more likely to score 20 points or less against this Georgia defense that paces the SEC.
Oklahoma State (-5.0) at Baylor | Two weeks in a row my Cowboys have failed me. Third time’s the charm, right?
Coastal Carolina (-13.5) at Troy | I’m on the Chanticleer train. Give me Coastal Carolina by a couple touchdowns.
San Diego State at BYU (-18.5) | I have a feeling that the Cougars have something to prove after barely losing to Coastal Carolina last week. Give me BYU by 20+.
Alabama (-32) at Arkansas | I’ve picked against Alabama the last two weeks in a row and they have proved me wrong. If they can beat Auburn and LSU by 6 touchdowns, they can surely dominate Arkansas.
Coastal Carolina (-13.5) at Troy | The Chanticleers continue to shock the world each week. I don’t think they will have any issues beating a 5-5 Troy team.
USC (-2.5) at UCLA | The Trojans are just about all the Pac 12 has this season. I think this will be a close game, but I have a feeling USC will pull off the victory Saturday night.
Coastal Carolina (-13.5) at Troy | Follow the logic here. Last week the Chanticleers held a BYU team that averages 42.1 points per game to only 17 points. This week they get a Troy team that is averaging 25.8 points per game. I like CCU by multiple touchdowns here.
Miami (-3) vs. UNC | I think this game is going to be a lot of fun. UNC has the better of the two offenses but Miami more than makes up the difference with its defense. Give me the Caines and the home field advantage here.
Oregon State (+3) vs. Stanford | The Cardinal is playing on the road for the third consecutive time and Oregon State should have running back Jermar Jefferson return to the field. That’s significant because Stanford is allowing opposing running backs to average 5.2 yards per attempt as it is, then you add on the possibility of them being a bit road weary. I like Oregon State to push for the upset here.
