Last week was a poor showing for me. 0-3. Spurned by the likes of Stanford and Northwestern, how embarrassing.
But! We play on. There are a lot of games left to lose this season against the spread and we will find a way. Picks I like this week:
Utah +11.5 at Oregon - This is not the Oregon of old, and the questions around the health of Vernon Adams remain. His status for Saturday's game is still questionable, and Oregon's QB depth is, well, not deep. Looking for Travis Wilson and Devontae Booker to keep it reasonably close and cover.
Navy -6.5 at UConn - Navy is a good football team! So is East Carolina (relatively), and Navy surprisingly took care of them quite easily last week. It's hard to take much away from Mizzou "beating" UConn 9-6, and in weeks 1-2 the Huskies have only squeaked out wins against FCS Villanova and Army, which is one of the worst teams in the FBS. Plus, Navy is undefeated all time in conference play, so history is on my side. I like Navy by more than a TD.
Ohio +10.5 at Minnesota - Can Minnesota score 11 points? Yes. Can they score 11 points more than whatever their opponent scores even once this season? Doubtful.
Indiana -3.5 (-105) at Wake Forest - I believe!
Who are you taking this week?
