ECU is one of the weakest teams in the American Athletic Conference, made apparent by their current streak of four-straight losses.

Over their last three games, the Pirates have allowed at least 41 points in each contest. Of ECU’s seven defeats, opponents have failed to reach at least 34 points on just one occasion.

With a win today, the Fresno State Bulldogs (3-4) could get back to .500. Tonight, they’ll attempt to do so against the high-flying Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (5-3) in Hawaii.

Both the Oregon State Beavers (3-4) and the Arizona Wildcats (4-4) have been involved in some of the highest-scoring contests of the college football season. Saturday night, these two squads will go head to head. The over/under is set at 70.5 points.
An outlier in Oregon State’s season was their most recent victory, which was a 21-17 win over California. In the two games prior, the Beavers allowed 52 points to #15 Utah and defeated UCLA in a game that had a combined 79 points scored.

UNLV is coming off two straight losses to Fresno State and San Diego State, both of which came after a 34-10 victory over Vanderbilt. The Rebels haven’t been able to limit opposing offenses with much success. For example, Wyoming was able to put up 53 on UNLV.
On average, UNLV is scoring 24 points per game on 375 yards of offense while allowing 34 points per game on 426 yards.
With 793 yards and seven touchdowns, running back Charles Williams heads up the UNLV ground game. Receiver Randal Grimes is the team’s biggest offensive threat with 474 yards and five touchdowns through the air.

On average, the Scarlet Knights are scoring 15 points per game on 281 yards of offense while allowing 37 points per game on 444 yards.
Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan had a big day in the win over Liberty. In addition to 192 yards and two touchdowns through the air, Langan ran for 118 yards and another TD.

Nebraska should have starting quarterback Adrian Martinez back on the field after missing time due to injury. On the season, Martinez has thrown for 1,245 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions.
After a big win over Maryland a few weeks ago, Purdue has dropped two straight to #23 Iowa and Illinois. If Rondale Moore is able to play meaningful minutes at the running back position, the Boilermakers will like their chances to score points against a vulnerable Nebraska defense.
On average, the Boilermakers are scoring 24 points per game on 369 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 412 yards.

A noon kickoff will pit two identical records against each other as the Eastern Michigan Eagles (4-4) play host to the Buffalo Bulls (4-4). The over/under is set at 50.5 points.
After starting the season with a record of 2-4, the Bulls have gained some momentum with wins over Akron and Central Michigan. Defensively, Buffalo has been very good. In five of their eight games, the Bulls have held their opponent to 22 points or fewer.
On average, the Bulls are scoring 26 points per game on 355 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 304 yards.
A strong Buffalo defense that earned five turnovers against Central Michigan will aim to once again assist an offense that hasn’t been very explosive. The Bulls only have one receiver with more than 162 yards.
Eastern Michigan started the year strong but has most recently lost three of its last four games. In each of their last two games, the Eagles scored 34 points.
On average, Eastern Michigan is scoring 28 points per game on 398 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 443 yards.

On average, Northern Illinois is scoring 25 points per game on 377 yards of offense while allowing 25 points per game on 342 yards.
Running back Tre Harbison has led the Huskies in rushing in each of the past four games. On the season, Harbison has rushed for 724 yards and seven touchdowns. Quarterback Marcus Childers threw for three touchdowns against Akron, but he managed just 71 passing yards in the game.

Navy has ripped off four straight wins and now aims for a fifth against a struggling Huskies squad. On their current winning streak, the Midshipmen have scored at least 34 points in every game, and have held their opponent to 25 points or fewer in three of the four.
On average, the Midshipmen are scoring 38 points per game on 440 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 310 yards.
With four touchdowns and three picks, quarterback Malcolm Perry hasn’t been great in the passing game. However, he’s been outstanding in the running game with a team-leading 934 yards and 14 touchdowns.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on West Virginia/Baylor over56 -110
The well-rested #12 Baylor Bears (7-0) will be aiming to extend their lead in the Big 12 this evening when they host the West Virginia Mountaineers (3-4). The over/under is set at 56 points.
Let’s start with the Mountaineers, who’ve lost three straight to tough competition. Although West Virginia only scored 14 points in each of their games against #5 Oklahoma and Iowa State, they managed to put up 31 points against a strong #11 Texas team.
On average, the Mountaineers are scoring 23 points per game on 314 yards of offense while allowing 33 points per game on 407 yards.
West Virginia’s biggest weakness is the running game. With running backs Kennedy McCoy and Leddie Brown leading the charge, the Mountaineers don’t have a single rusher over 200 yards. However, quarterback Austin Kendall has thrown for 1,429 yards and 11 TDs with seven picks.
The Baylor Bears coming to town must be a scary sight for a West Virginia team that’s allowing 33 points a game. Thus far, the high-flying Baylor offense has been held to less than 31 points just twice this season. Although they haven’t played a ranked team, the Bears have beaten every team that’s lined up in front of them this year.
On average, Baylor is scoring 39 points per game on 484 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 358 yards.
Throwing to a pair of 500-yard receivers, quarterback Charlie Brewer has been a beast all season. By completing 66.3% of his passes, Brewer has thrown for 1,866 yards, 12 touchdowns, and three interceptions.

50* Powerhouse Play on Notre Dame/Michigan under52 -110
Saturday’s premier matchup figures to be the #8 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-1) going into the Big House to take on the #19 Michigan Wolverines (5-2). The over/under is set at 52 points.
Since Notre Dame’s loss to #3 Georgia, the Irish have ripped off three straight victories. Most recently, Notre Dame took down USC by a score of 30-27.
On average, the Fighting Irish are scoring 39 points per game on 450 yards of offense, but they’ve only hit that point total once in the past four games. Defensively, Notre Dame is allowing just 17 points per game on 346 yards.
Completing 63.2% of his passes, Ian Book has been very good for the Fighting Irish at quarterback. On the season, Book has thrown for 1,419 yards while tossing 14 touchdowns and two interceptions. Averaging seven yards per carry, running back Tony Jones Jr. has rushed for 557 yards and four TDs.
Michigan has five wins in seven games, but they’ve failed to beat the toughest competition on the schedule. Before last week’s 28-21 loss to #7 Penn State, the Wolverines lost to #13 Wisconsin by a score of 35-14.
On average, the Wolverines are scoring 29 points per game on 391 yards of offense while allowing 19 points on 283 yards.

50* Powerhouse Play on Missouri/Kentucky under45 -110
The Missouri Tigers (5-2) threw away what’s been a great season with a 21-14 loss at the hands of Vanderbilt last week. Saturday night, Missouri will try to get back on track on the road against the Kentucky Wildcats (3-4). The over/under is set at 45 points.
Although the Tigers have won five of their seven games, all five have come at home while their two losses have been on the road. Missouri’s 14-point dud against Vanderbilt showed a weak spot in an otherwise daunting passing attack.
On average, the Tigers are scoring 35 points per game on 448 yards of offense while allowing 17 points on 270 yards.
In addition to a strong defense, Missouri is led by a quarterback in Kelly Bryant who’s thrown for 1,715 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions. However, Bryant is coming off his worst game of the season in which he threw for just 140 yards.
Kentucky is coming off a loss, but they held #10 Georgia to just 21 points of offense in that contest. Before the Georgia game, the Wildcats won a 24-20 game over Arkansas.
On average, the Wildcats are scoring 20 points per game on 354 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 364 yards.
Kentucky hasn’t been very explosive on offense throughout the season. The team’s leading receiver, Lynn Bowden Jr., has only 348 yards and one touchdown.
|10-26-19||Arkansas v. Alabama UNDER 56.5||7-48||Win||100||34 h 40 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Arkansas/Alabama under56½ -110
It hardly seems fair that the Arkansas Razorbacks (2-5) have to go into Tuscaloosa to take on the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0), yet these two squads will go head to head Saturday. The over/under is set at 56.5 points.
The Razorbacks are entering this contest on the back of a four-game losing streak, including a 31-24 loss to San Jose State. Most recently, Arkansas managed just 10 points against #11 Auburn.
On average, the Razorbacks are scoring 25 points per game on 385 yards of offense while allowing 31 points on 412 yards.
Ben Hicks has been at the helm for this Arkansas offense over the past three game and has struggled to get the offense rolling. Completing just 50.4% of his passes, the Razorbacks quarterback has thrown for 692 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
Alabama has yet to play some of their toughest opponents of the season, but they’ve beaten everyone that’s lined up in front of them. Most recently, the Crimson Tide defeated Tennessee 35-13.
On average, the Crimson Tide are scoring 49 points per game on 513 yards of offense while allowing 16 points per game on 321 yards.
The Alabama offense will get the opportunity to prove themselves as a unit rather than a quarterback-dependent team with starter Tua Tagovailoa out injured. Sophomore Mac Jones will start at quarterback in his place.
Although Alabama is still a big favorite to win this contest, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Crimson Tide offense take a step back.

50* Powerhouse Play on New Mexico +10 -110
With Saturday’s game versus the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (4-3), the New Mexico Lobos (2-5) will try to begin digging themselves out of the basement of the Mountain West Conference.
Hawaii’s strong first half of the season came to a grinding halt with two straight losses to #14 Boise State and Air Force. In both games, the Rainbow Warriors gave up at least 56 points.
On average, the Rainbow Warriors are scoring 35 points per game on 475 yards of offense while allowing 36 points per game on 428 yards.
A dynamic Hawaii passing attack is led by quarterback Cole McDonald, who’s thrown for 2,284 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10 picks. The rushing attack is far inferior, with running back Miles Reed leading the team with just 273 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
New Mexico has lost four straight since the end of September while scoring 10 points in two of the contests and 21 points in the other two. On average, the Lobos are scoring 24 points per game on 417 yards of offense while allowing 37 points per game on 494 yards.
The New Mexico offense features a pair of solid running backs. Averaging 5.1 yards per carry, Ahmari Davis leads the team with 543 yards and four touchdowns. Averaging 6.3 yards per carry, Bryson Carroll has added another 444 yards and two touchdowns.

A Mid-American Conference showdown pits the Ohio Bobcats (3-4) against the Ball State Cardinals (4-3). The over/under for this matchup is 62 points.
Ohio has won two of its last three games, the most impressive of which was a 21-20 overtime victory against Buffalo. On average, the Bobcats are scoring 30 points per game on 406 yards while allowing 31 points per game on 460 yards.
Coming off his highest-yardage game of the year, quarterback Nathan Rourke has thrown for 1,612 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Rourke also happens to lead the team in rushing with 409 yards and six touchdowns.
Shane Hooks is Ohio’s most explosive receiver. Averaging 20.7 yards per reception, Hooks has caught 17 balls for 352 yards and three TDs.
Ball State has finally earned some momentum with three straight wins over Northern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. In each victory, the Cardinals held their opponents to a maximum of 23 points.
On average, Ball State is scoring 35 points per game on 454 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 391 yards.
Quarterback Drew Plitt has thrown for 1,868 yards with 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. Meanwhile, running back Caleb Huntley leads the offense with 711 yards and five touchdowns.

50* Powerhouse Play on Miami-FL/Pittsburgh under44 -110
It’s been a rough first year for head coach Manny Diaz, who recently said his Miami Hurricanes (3-4) team is in a rebuild. Saturday, Miami will be on the road to take on the Pitt Panthers (5-2). The over/under is set at 44 points.
Miami recently followed up a strong win over #20 Virginia with a 28-21 overtime loss to Georgia Tech. Offense has been the issue for the Hurricanes, who haven’t scored more than 21 in three of their last four games.
On average, the Hurricanes are scoring 28 points on 409 yards of offense while allowing 20 points on 298 yards.
N’Kosi Perry has been relatively good at quarterback since taking over. Completing 59.8% of his passes, Perry has thrown for 871 yards with eight touchdowns and one pick so far.

On average, the Pitt Panthers are scoring 22 points per game on 390 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 302 yards.
Without a terribly productive rushing attack, quarterback Kenny Pickett leads the offense with 1,602 yards, eight touchdowns, and four picks.

In a Big Ten matchup, the Purdue Boilermakers (2-5) will try to pull level with the Illinois Fighting Illini (3-4) on Saturday afternoon. The over/under is set at 58.5 points.
It’s largely been a season to forget for Illinois, but last week marked a milestone victory for Lovie Smith’s squad as they upset #6 Wisconsin by a single point at home. Despite that big win, the Fighting Illini haven’t scored more than 25 in any of their past three contests.
On average, the Fighting Illini are scoring 30 points per game on 334 yards while allowing 30 points per game on 432 yards.
Quarterback Brandon Peters, who threw for 174 yards against Wisconsin, has completed just 56.1% of his passes for 971 yards with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions on the season.
A poor Purdue team most recently fell to #23 Iowa by a score of 26-20. On average, the Boilermakers are scoring 26 points per game on 384 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 432 yards.
The running game has been virtually non-existent for Purdue. Running back King Doerue leads the team with just 252 yards and three touchdowns.

After dropping their first two games of the season, Liberty has won five straight against the likes of Buffalo and New Mexico State.

At quarterback, Stephen Calvert leads the Liberty attack with 1,920 yards, 15 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Antonio Gandy-Golden has been on the receiving end of 43 of Calvert’s passes, racking up 877 yards and five TDs.
Rutgers is at the bottom of the Big Ten barrel and has been absolutely dreadful on offense. In their past four games, all of which have been losses, the Scarlet Knights have scored a combined 14 points. Rutgers was shut out in two of those games.
On average, the Scarlet Knights are scoring 11 points per game on 255 yards of offense while allowing 37 points per game on 449 yards.
A bad Rutgers offense is led by Isaih Pacheco, who’s rushed for 434 yards and four touchdowns in seven games.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on USC/Colorado over63 -109
Both having played seven games, the USC Trojans (4-3) and Colorado Buffaloes (3-4) have mirrored records, including in Pac-12 play, where USC has a 3-1 record. When they play under the lights on Friday night in Colorado, the over/under will be set at 63 points.
USC recently faced its toughest stretch of the season when they faced #10 Utah, #17 Washington, and #9 Notre Dame in three straight games. Although the Trojans only managed one win in that period, they followed it up with last week’s 41-14 domination of Arizona.
On average, the Trojans are scoring 31 points per game on 431 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 416 yards.
Kedon Slovis, who’s back under center for USC, has thrown for 1,219 yards, nine touchdowns, and four interceptions this year. His two biggest weapons are Michael Pittman Jr., who’s caught 43 balls for 599 yards and five touchdowns, and Tyler Vaughns, who’s reeled in 42 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns.
The Buffaloes are coming off three straight losses, one of which was a 45-3 pounding by #13 Oregon. On average, Colorado is scoring 27 points per game on 407 yards of offense while allowing 35 points per game on 482 yards.
USC will be chomping at the bit to face a Colorado defense that’s allowed at least 31 points in every game this season.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Houston +14½ -110
D’Eriq King and the Houston Cougars (3-4) were supposed to be a top AAC team this year. Instead, it’s the undefeated #16 SMU Mustangs who lead the conference. Tonight, these two teams face off in Houston.
Ever since opening the season with a 37-30 win over Arkansas State, SMU has scored at least 41 points in every single contest. That includes a win over #25 TCU and a 45-21 performance against a good Temple team.
On average, the Mustangs are scoring 44 points per game on 521 yards of offense while allowing 27 points per game on 370 yards.
Quarterback Shane Buechele leads the SMU offense. Completing 64.8% of his passes, Buechele has thrown for 2,122 yards with 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. Buechele is coming off a huge game against Temple in which he threw for 457 yards with six TDs and one pick.
The Cougars followed up a loss to #25 Cincinnati with a 24-17 win over UConn. On average, Houston is scoring 31 points per game on 393 yards of offense while allowing 31 points per game on 470 yards.
Houston features a running game with a pair of backs that have scored three touchdowns each. Kyle Porter leads the team with 448 yards, and Patrick Carr has racked up 301 yards of his own.
Although Houston doesn’t have the stingiest defense in the nation, giving 14.5 points to an offense that averages 31 is a dangerous affair.

Identical records will be put on the line when the Air Force Falcons (4-2) go on the road to take on the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors (4-2) on Saturday night. The over/under is set at 66 points.
Air Force is coming off one of their better offensive performances of the season, defeating Fresno State by a score of 43-24. On average, Air Force is scoring 34 points per game on 424 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 310 yards.
The Air Force triple option is led by quarterback Donald Hammond III, who’s thrown for 655 yards, five touchdowns, and three picks in addition to his 249 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. The Falcons have two 400-yard rushers in Taven Birdow and Kadin Remsberg.

On average, the Rainbow Warriors are scoring 37 points per game on 473 yards of offense while allowing 33 points on 412 yards.
No stranger to high-scoring affairs and airing it out, Hawai’i quarterback Cole McDonald is on pace for a huge year. With a 66.7% completion percentage, McDonald has thrown for 1,880 yards, 20 touchdowns, and nine picks.

The BYU Cougars (2-4) will have their hands full this weekend as the undefeated #14 Boise State Broncos (6-0) come to town. The over/under is set at 45 points.
Boise State hasn’t lost a single game thus far, and has scored at least 30 points in all but one game this year. BYU’s biggest issue is that the Broncos are coming off their highest-scoring game of the season after putting up 59 points on Hawai’i.
On average, the Broncos are scoring 37 points per game on 488 yards of offense while allowing 20 points per game on 327 yards.
Between John Hightower and Khalil Shakir, the Broncos have a pair of 400-yard receivers for quarterback Hank Bachmeier to throw to. On the season, Bachmeier has thrown for 1,547 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
After taking down #24 USC, BYU has lost three straight games to #22 Washington, Toledo, and USF. In each of those three losses, the Cougars have allowed at least 27 points to their opponent.

We’ll find out how rattled the #10 Georgia Bulldogs (5-1) are after their first loss of the season when they host the Kentucky Wildcats (3-3) on Saturday. The over/under is set at 47 points.
In the world of college football, the Wildcats are generally involved in low-scoring games. None of Kentucky’s last four games have gone over 50 total points, and the Wildcats haven’t scored more than 24 in any of them.
On average, the Wildcats are scoring 24 points per game on 384 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 380 yards.
After six games, Kentucky doesn’t have a running back over 420 yards or a receiver over 350 yards. However, the Wildcats offer a perfectly balanced offense that averages 192 rushing yards and 192 net passing yards per game.
Before last weekend, Georgia was considered one of the best teams in the nation with a clear path to the College Football Playoff. Then, the Bulldogs scored just 17 against South Carolina.
On average, Georgia is scoring 39 points on 504 yards of offense while allowing 12 points per game on 281 yards.
The 20 points Georgia gave up to South Carolina is the most any team has put on the Bulldogs all season long. In addition to a couple of 17-point performances, other Georgia opponents have scored 14, six, and zero points in the remaining games.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-2) will face their third ranked opponent in four games when they host the undefeated #19 Baylor Bears (6-0) on Saturday. The over/under is set at 67.5 points.
Although the Bears remained unscathed, it took two overtimes for them to earn a three-point victory over Texas Tech last week. Over the past two weeks, Baylor has scored a combined 64 points.
On average, the Bears are scoring 38 points on 475 yards of offense while allowing 18 points per game on 340 yards.
With 1,554 yards, 11 touchdowns, and three picks, quarterback Charlie Brewer leads the Baylor attack. Receiver Denzel Mimz, who has 32 catches for 503 yards and five touchdowns, is Brewer’s favorite target.
Coming off a 45-35 loss to Texas Tech, Oklahoma State has the benefit of an extra week of preparation with a bye last week. On average, the Cowboys are scoring 40 points per game on 528 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 415 yards.
This Oklahoma State offense is powered by Chuba Hubbard. The Cowboys running back has already rushed for 1,094 yards and 13 touchdowns through six games of the season.

Two of the top teams in the American Athletic Conference are set to face off Saturday when the Temple Owls (5-1) take on the #19 SMU Mustangs (6-0). The over/under is set at 59 points.
Only a single loss to Buffalo has kept the Owls from a perfect season through six games. With wins over #21 Maryland and #23 Memphis, Temple can now boast two wins over ranked teams. They’ll aim for a third on Saturday.
On average, the Owls are scoring 30 points per game on 446 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 325 yards.
Quarterback Anthony Russo has led Temple to five victories on his 1,502 yards, 13 touchdowns, and six interceptions. Running back Re’Mahn Davis has rushed for 575 yards and four touchdowns.
Apart from a 37-30 victory to open the season, SMU has scored at least 41 points in every game this year. The Mustangs now enter this contest after a bye week that followed their comeback win over Tulsa a couple of weeks ago.
On average, the Mustangs are scoring 44 points per game on 498 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 386 yards.
The balanced SMU attack is led by quarterback Shane Buechele, who’s thrown for 1,665 yards, 12 touchdowns, and five picks. Buechele has two 500-yard receivers in Reggie Roberson Jr. and James Proche.

With only a single loss on the record, the Navy Midshipmen (4-1) have gotten off to a great first half of the season. Saturday, they’ll host the South Florida Bulls (3-3) in an American Athletic Conference contest. The over/under is set at 52 points.
South Florida has gotten it going over the past couple of weeks with wins over UConn and BYU. On average, the Bulls are scoring 27 points per game on 339 yards of offense while allowing 29 points on 383 yards.
Coming off a 150-yard performance a week ago, running back Jordan Cronkrite will aim for another big game. On the season, Cronkrite has 382 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Jordan McCloud is the team’s second-leading rusher with 167 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
With two straight wins over Air Force and Tulsa, Navy has improved to 4-1 with their only loss coming against a good Memphis team. On average, Navy is scoring 38 points per game on 434 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 286 yards.
In addition to quarterback Malcolm Perry’s 489 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions through the air, he’s the team’s leading rusher with 604 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground.
With good defenses that have allowed more than 25 points just twice in the last 10 combined games, points should be at a premium in this one.

An all-Sun Belt contest on Saturday features the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (3-3) on the road against the Georgia Southern Eagles (2-3). The over/under is set at 45.5 points.
It’s been an interesting 30-day stretch for the Chanticleers coming into this matchup. After putting up 46 and 62 points in wins over Norfolk and UMass, Coastal Carolina dropped back-to-back games against App State and Georgia State.
On average, the Chanticleers are scoring 34 points per game on 423 yards of offense while allowing 27 points on 319 yards.
Without a receiver with more than 309 yards through the air, the Chanticleers rely on the running game more often than not. If Georgia Southern can suffocate running back CJ Marable, who has 508 rushing yards and five touchdowns, they’ll have a good chance in this one.
The Eagles enter this contest with the momentum of a 20-17 double-overtime win over South Alabama. On average, Georgia Southern is scoring 21 points per game on 278 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 380 yards.
Georgia Southern has been inept when it comes to a passing game. Without a single 100-yard receiver, both Georgia Southern quarterbacks have thrown for a combined 277 yards.

Despite a four-game losing streak, the Bowling Green Falcons (2-4) have a chance to catch Kent State in the Mid-American Conference. To do so, they’ll need a win over the Central Michigan Chippewas (4-3) on Saturday. The over/under is set at 52.5 points.
Central Michigan is coming off two wins over Eastern Michigan and New Mexico State. Scoring 42 points in both contests, the Chippewas outscored their opponents 84-42 in those games. On average, Central Michigan is scoring 28 points per game on 411 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 367 yards.
The Central Michigan offense is led by the duo of Jonathan Ward and Kobe Lewis at the running back position. While Ward has 531 yards and five touchdowns, Lewis has 491 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
With a 20-7 win over Toledo last week, Bowling Green halted a four-game skid in which they were outscored 201 to 27. 52-0 losses to both #9 Notre Dame and Kansas State attributed to much of that disparity.
On average, the Falcons are scoring 16 points per game on 343 yards of offense while allowing a whopping 35 points per game on 459 yards.
With 28 catches for 337 yards and two touchdowns, receiver Quintin Morris is Bowling Green’s leading threat in the passing game.
With a defense that’s been torched for at least 52 points on three separate occasions, the Falcons will need their offense to keep up with Central Michigan in this one.

Since opening the season with a loss to Virginia, Pittsburgh has come on very strong with a 4-1 record over the past month and a half that includes a win over #15 UCF and just a seven-point loss to #13 Penn State. Most recently, the Panthers put up 33 points to defeat Duke by three.
On average, the Panthers are scoring 22 points per game on 393 yards of offense while allowing 23 points on 298 yards.
In his five games played this year, quarterback Kenny Pickett has thrown for 1,370 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions. Pickett’s favorite target has been Taysir Mack, who’s caught 41 passes for 511 yards and two touchdowns.
After scoring 52 and 41 points in wins over Western Michigan and Holy Cross, Syracuse fell to NC State by six points a week ago. On average, Syracuse is scoring 26 points on 378 yards of offense while allowing 26 points on 425 yards.
The duo of quarterback Tommy DeVito and receiver Trishton Jackson has been powerful this year. While DeVito has thrown for 1,534 yards, 12 touchdowns, and five picks, Jackson has racked up 499 yards and six touchdowns on 33 catches.

Thursday evening features a matchup of Sun Belt programs as the University of Louisiana – Lafayette Ragin Cajuns (4-2) go on the road to take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves (3-3).
After four straight wins, Lafayette suffered their second loss of the season last week as they fell to the Appalachian State Mountaineers by a score of 17-7. Offensively, the Ragin Cajuns have been great, scoring between 35 and 77 points in each of their victories.
On average, Lafayette is scoring 38 points per game on 492 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 344 yards.
The Ragin Cajuns can boast a trio of productive running backs. Trey Ragas leads the team with 572 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. Following Ragas, running back Elijah Mitchell has racked up 470 yards and nine TDs while Raymond Calais has added 320 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

This will be Cincinnati’s third road game of the year. Other than a blowout against an inferior Marshall team, the Bearcats didn’t’ even manage a single point in the team’s other road game, which came against the Buckeyes.
Houston started out with a tough matchup against #4 Oklahoma to kick off the season. That 49-31 loss was followed up by a win, but losses to #20 Washington State and Tulane further hindered a team that no longer has starting quarterback D’Eriq King under center after the player decided to redshirt.
On average, Houston is scoring 34 points per game on 409 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 492 yards.
Without King, Clayton Tune leads the team form the QB spot. On the season, Tune is 16 of 20 for 124 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. The Cougars didn’t need Tune to lead with his arm in the team’s last contest, but they’ll need him to be more prolific against Cincinnati.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Miami-FL -2 -110
A good Friday night matchup pits #20 Virginia (4-1) against unranked Miami (2-3) in Florida. Despite the losing record, Miami is favored by two points in this contest.
The Virginia Cavaliers earned ranked status with wins over Florida State and Pittsburgh, but are coming off a 35-20 loss to #10 Notre Dame. On average, Virginia is scoring 32 points on 363 yards of offense while allowing 21 points on 275 yards.
One hurdle Virginia will have to overcome is the lack of back-to-back ACC road wins since 2011.
In the Notre Dame loss, Virginia’s lack of running game was exposed. Against the Irish, the Cavaliers racked up just 29 yards rushing as a team.
Miami has enjoyed little success under head coach Manny Diaz. Other than a 63-0 explosion against Bethune Cookman, the Hurricanes have failed to impress on offense. Losses to #8 Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia Tech have set Miami back this season.
However, it’s worth noting that seven points is the widest margin by which Miami has lost all season. On average, the Hurricanes are scoring 32 points on 448 yards of offense while allowing 21 points on 283 yards.

Quarterback Tommy DeVito leads the Orange with 1,234 yards, 11 touchdowns, and five interceptions. DeVito’s biggest weapon is receiver Trishton Jackson, who’s caught 24 balls for 393 yards and five touchdowns.
NC State has failed to rise up against their quality opponents so far this year, losing to both FSU and West Virginia. On the bright side, the Wolfpack have allowed just 29 total points against their other three opponents.
On average, NC State is scoring 30 points per game on 431 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 321 yards.
Bailey Hockman is expected to start at quarterback for the Wolfpack. So far, Hockman has thrown for 255 yards, one touchdown, and one interception on 50 attempts.
Both Hockman and DeVito are coming off injuries, so neither starting spot is set in stone.

It’s been a rough season for UMass, but running back Bilal Ally has done his part. Leading the offense in rushing, Ally has racked up 353 yards and three touchdowns thus far on the year.
FIU hasn’t started the year much better, dropping games to Tulane, Western Kentucky, and Louisiana Tech. The Panthers’ lone win came against New Hampshire.
On average, Florida International is scoring 22 points per game on 361 yards of offense while allowing 31 points per game on 454 yards.
With James Morgan taking the majority of snaps, Florida International hasn’t enjoyed a great deal of success. Morgan is 51 of 86 for 627 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Neither offense has been great, but they should both be able to match or exceed their season high of 37 points for UMass and 31 points for FIU when they go up against these defenses Saturday.

The Ball State Cardinals (1-3) haven’t had much to celebrate so far in the 2019 season. However, as the Cardinals go on the road to take on the Huskies of Northern Illinois (1-3) they have a great chance against an underwhelming team with just a single win to its name.
For Ball State, quarterback Drew Plitt has been solid. With a completion percentage of 67.6%, Plitt has thrown for 11 touchdowns and four interceptions.

With just four touchdowns and three picks on the season, Ross Bowers hasn’t been good enough to win ball games for Northern Illinois. He’ll look to add to his 1,056 passing yards on the season.

Texas Tech has faced two good opponents this year and lost to them both, though nobody expected the Red Raiders to compete with #6 Oklahoma. On average, Texas Tech is scoring 28 points a game on 460 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 390 yards.
A Red Raiders offense boasting three 100-yard rushers and four 100-yard receivers is led by quarterback Alan Bowman, who’s thrown for 1,020 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions.

On average, Maryland is scoring 40 points per game on 435 yards of offense while allowing 25 points per game on 378 yards.
The problem Maryland faces heading into this week’s matchup is a recent lack of offensive production. After scoring just 17 against Temple, the Terrapins were shutout by the Nittany Lions.
After defeating UMass in the season opener, Rutgers has fallen in three straight games to #20 Iowa, Boston College, and #20 Michigan. In their games against ranked opponents, the Scarlet Knights have been shutout.
On average, Rutgers is scoring 16 points per game on 302 yards of offense while allowing 33 points per game on 413 yards.

The undefeated #5 LSU Tigers (4-0) will face a surprisingly tough opponent at home when they host the Utah State Aggies (3-1) Saturday. The over/under is set at 74 points.
A three-point loss to Wake Forest in the season opener is the only thing that stands in the way of an undefeated season for Utah State to this point. Over the past couple of weeks, the Aggies have earned a pair of quality wins over San Diego State and Colorado State.
On average, Utah State is scoring 39 points per game on 533 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 377 yards.
Quarterback Jordan Love leads the way for Utah State with 1,207 yards, six touchdowns, and five picks. Running backs Jaylen Warren (335 yards, four touchdowns) and Gerold Bright (301 yards, two touchdowns) give the Aggies offense a good balance.
This LSU team looks more complete than any team they’ve had over the past decade. With a more modern offense, the Tigers have put up at least 45 in every contest, including a win against #9 Texas.
On average, LSU is scoring 58 points per game on 563 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 320 yards.

The duo of quarterback Dillon Gabriel and receiver Gabriel Davis has been incredibly productive for the Knights. Gabriel has thrown for 1,338 yards, 14 touchdowns, and two picks, and Davis has caught 25 balls for 499 yards and eight touchdowns.
Cincinnati has an impressive win over UCLA on the schedule, but was blown out by #5 Ohio State by 42. On average, Cincinnati is scoring 28 points a game on 408 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 297 yards.
The Bearcats offense can point to a 35-point performance over Miami of Ohio and a 52-point performance over Marshall. Quarterback Desmond Ridder has thrown for 815 yards, eight touchdowns, and three picks.
With the pace at which UCF plays, both teams should get a large number of possessions, and UCF normally takes advantage of those. If UCF hits its offensive average, Cincinnati will need just 11 points to hit the total.

Temple enjoyed its best offensive performance when it exploded for 56 against Bucknell.
Temple quarterback Anthony Russo can boast 1,071 yards and 10 touchdowns through the air thus far in the season, but he’s also tossed six picks in four games.
East Carolina is through five games of its 2019 season. Wins over Gardner-Webb, Old Dominion, and William & Mary are overshadowed by two large defeats to NC State and Navy. On average, East Carolina is scoring 21 points per game on 370 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 342 yards.
The Pirates’ best performance came against Gardner-Webb. Including a 31-point first half, East Carolina ended with a whopping 48 points.
Eastern Carolina has the pleasure of sending out four 100-yard rushers through five games of the season. Behind running back Demetrius Mauney and his 199 yards is quarterback Holton Ahlers, who’s rushed for 186 yards and three touchdowns.
Look for receiver Blake Proehl to make some big plays tonight. Proehl has 20 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

50* Powerhouse Play on Colorado State/Utah State under71 -110
Saturday night will feature a matchup between the Colorado State Rams (1-3) and Utah State Aggies (2-1) in Utah. The over/under is set at 71 points.
It’s been a rough start for Colorado State. Other than a 38-13 win over Western Illinois, the Rams have allowed at least 41 points in each of the team’s three losses.
On average, Colorado State is scoring 35 points a game on 551 yards of offense while giving up 40 points a game on 439 yards.
Offensively, Colorado State is led by feature running back Marvin Kinsey Jr., who’s rushed for 556 yards and three touchdowns so far this season. The Rams also have two receivers over 300 yards and five receivers over 100 yards through the air.
If not for a three-point loss to Wake Forest, Utah State would be undefeated. The Aggies dominated Stony Brook before an impressive win over San Diego State last week.
On average, Utah State is scoring 40 points per game on 562 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 404 yards.
Through three games, quarterback Jordan Love has racked up 1,003 yards on 88 of 129 passing with four TDs and three picks. In addition to a 320-yard rusher in Jaylen Warren, Love is working with five receivers who’ve amassed at least 130 yards receiving.

50* Powerhouse Play on East Carolina/Old Dominion over46½ -110
Coming off two straight losses, the Old Dominion Monarchs (1-2) will host the East Carolina Pirates (2-2) in an early evening game on Saturday. The over/under is set at 46.5 points.
The visiting Pirates suffered two heavy defeats at the hands of North Carolina State and Navy, but racked up a pair of wins against Gardner-Webb and William & Mary. On average, East Carolina is scoring 21 points a game on 386 yards of offense while allowing 23 points a game on 354 yards.
The Pirates rely heavily on the running game, led the by three players over 140 rushing yards on the season. One of those players is quarterback Holton Ahlers, who’s also thrown for 711 yards, two touchdowns, and three picks.
After opening with a win over Norfolk State, Old Dominion has faced tough competition. The Monarchs lost to both Virginia Tech and #21 Virginia, but they managed to score 17 points in each contest.
On average, Old Dominion is scoring 19 points a game on 295 yards of offense while giving up 27 points a game on 305 yards.
The Monarchs offense likes to spread the ball out through the air. Led by Eric Kumah’s 93 yards, Old Dominion has eight players with at least 37 yards receiving. Against relatively stiff competition, the Monarchs can boast two 100-yard rushers between Lala Davis (158 yards, one TD) and Kesean Strong (116 yards, one TD).
Although neither offense has been consistently great, an Old Dominion offense that’s been suffocated by tough competition over the last couple of games will be eager to put up points. After scoring 17 against Virginia, how much can the Monarchs score against East Carolina?

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Iowa State/Baylor over54 -110
Only a one-point loss to rival #19 Iowa has kept the Iowa State Cyclones (2-1) from a perfect record through three games. Saturday afternoon, the undefeated Baylor Bears (3-0) will play host to Iowa State. The over/under is set at 54 points.
Iowa State has already experienced a pair of very close games, one of which went to overtime. The Cyclones then took out their frustration from the Iowa game against UL Monroe by winning 72-20. On average, the Cyclones are scoring 39 points per game on 531 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 33 yards.
The Cyclones offense has been spreading the ball and rolling. In addition to having four receivers over 150 yards, Iowa State can boast six total players of 60 yards rushing on the season. Leading the offense is quarterback Brock Purdy, who’s thrown for 989 yards, six touchdowns, and one pick.
Baylor hasn’t played the toughest competition in the world to start the season, but they’ve gotten the job done. The Bears also showed their offensive prowess by scoring 56 and 63 points in the first two games of the year.
On average, Baylor is scoring 47 points a game on 497 yards of offense while allowing 15 points a game on 261 yards.
Baylor has three rushers over 100 yards for the season, led by the 186 yards of John Lovett. Denzel Mims leads all receivers with 249 yards and three touchdowns through three games. Quarterback Charlie Brewer has thrown for 665 yards and seven touchdowns without a pick.
With two offenses that have shown explosive potential, 54 points should be surpassed before this contest is over.
|09-28-19||USC v. Washington OVER 60||14-28||Loss||-110||29 h 24 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on USC/Washington over60 -110
The table is set for a Saturday afternoon contest between two ranked teams as the #17 Washington Huskies (3-1) play host to the #21 USC Trojans (3-1). The over/under is set at 60 points.
Only a 30-27 overtime loss to BYU has kept the Trojans from starting the year off 4-0. On the bright side, USC can claim a pair of wins over ranked opponents as they’ve defeated #23 Stanford and #10 Utah. With a win over #17 Washington, USC would be sitting pretty.
On average, USC is scoring 33 points a game on 443 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 421 yards.
The Trojans offense can really get going behind three very good receivers. Michael Pittman Jr. has 31 catches for 437 yards and three touchdowns, Tyler Vaughns has 27 catches for 370 yards and two touchdowns, and Amon-Ra St. Brown has 19 catches for 207 yards and three touchdowns.
For Washington, a second-week loss to Cal has been surrounded by three dominant victories over Eastern Washington, Hawai’i, and BYU. On average, the Huskies are scoring 41 points per game on 461 yards of offense while allowing 18 points per game on 332 yards.
Washington has firepower all over the field offensively, including three receivers with a combined 766 yards and seven touchdowns, as well as three running backs with a combined 692 yards and eight touchdowns. Quarterback Jacob Eason has thrown for 1,063 yards, 10 touchdowns, and two picks.
Both teams are led by the offenses, including dangerous sets of wide receivers who can score on any play. This could easily turn into the highest-scoring contest of the weekend.
|09-28-19||Buffalo v. Miami-OH OVER 47||20-34||Win||100||26 h 2 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Buffalo/Miami-OH over47 -110
With several 2-2 teams occupying top spots throughout the MAC, the Buffalo Bulls (2-2) will try to keep pace as they go on the road to take on the Miami of Ohio Redhawks (1-3). The over/under is set at 47 points.
Buffalo has failed to score more than 17 points twice this year, but one of those performances came against #15 Penn State. In their two victories, the Bulls put up 38 points each. On average, Buffalo is scoring 27 points on 358 yards of offense while allowing 28 points on 321 yards.
Quarterback Matt Meyers leads Buffalo with 543 yards, five touchdowns, and two picks so far this season. The running game is the strength of the Bulls offense with two 300-yard rushers in Jaret Patterson (363 yards, three TDs) and Kevin Marks (319 yards, one TD).
Miami drew the short stick when it comes to early season schedules, having to face #20 Iowa, Cincinnati, and #6 Ohio State, all of which they lost. However, the Redhawks showed they have scoring potential when they put up 48 in a win over Tennessee Tech.
On average, the Redhawks are scoring 20 points a game on 232 yards of offense while allowing 42 points a game on 442 yards. Keep in mind that a 76-5 loss to OSU is skewing those numbers.
A strong Buffalo running game mixed with a Miami offense that should have the opportunity to get rolling against lesser competition than they’ve been facing could turn this into a high-scoring affair early on.
|09-28-19||Kansas +16 v. TCU||14-51||Loss||-110||26 h 50 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Kansas +16 -110
The Kansas Jayhawks (2-2) are getting 16 points as they go into Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs (2-1). Kansas won this matchup last season by a score of 27-26.
So far, Kansas has experienced an impressive 48-24 win over Boston College and played well against West Virginia, but the Jayhawks also let a disappointing 12-7 loss against Coastal Carolina ruin an otherwise positive start to the season.
On average, Kansas is scoring 26 points per game on 402 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 374 yards.
Quarterback Carter Stanley has been good for Kansas thus far, throwing for 861 yards on 72% passing while tossing eight touchdowns and four picks. On the ground, Khalil Herbert leads the team with 384 yards, followed by the 296 yards of Pooka Williams Jr.
TCU got out to a blistering start, winning their first two games by a combined 73-20. However, the Horned Frogs couldn’t keep up with SMU last week in a 41-38 defeat.
On average, TCU is scoring 37 points a game on 443 yards of offense while allowing 20 points a game on 275 yards.
Quarterback Max Duggan is completing just 50% of his passes, but he’s been careful with the football. Duggan has thrown for 423 yards and five touchdowns without an interception on the season.
With Kansas getting 16 points on the road, this game could come down to which TCU defense shows up; the defense that held Purdue to 13 points, or the defense that gave up 41 to SMU.
|09-28-19||Central Michigan +17 v. Western Michigan||15-31||Win||100||25 h 26 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Central Michigan +17 -110
Two teams with identical 2-2 records will face off Saturday when the Central Michigan Chippewas (2-2) go on the road to take on the Broncos of Western Michigan (2-2).
Excluding a 61-0 loss to #17 Wisconsin, Central Michigan has played pretty well against its early schedule. The Chippewas scored 38 and 45 points in wins over Albany and Akron, and lost a tight 17-12 game against the Miami Hurricanes.
On average, Central Michigan is scoring 24 points a game on 342 yards of offense while allowing 31 points a game on 367 yards of offense.
Quarterback David Moore has taken over the Chippewas offense and has played reasonably well. Moore has thrown for 534 yards, two touchdowns, and a pick in limited action this year. Expect Moore to get more and more comfortable as he gets more time under center.
Other than in the 51-17 loss to #19 Michigan State, Western Michigan has scored at least 33 points in every contest. On average, the Broncos score 39 points per game on 515 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 446 yards of offense.
Western Michigan is very much an offense-first team, led by quarterback Jon Wassink and his 1,222 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Western Michigan looks poised to outscore Central Michigan, but 17 points is a lot to lay for a Bronos defense that’s given up more than 50 points on two occasions this season.
|09-27-19||Duke v. Virginia Tech OVER 52||Top||45-10||Win||100||31 h 53 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Duke/Virginia Tech over52 -110
An important ACC clash will take place Friday night when the Virginia Tech Hokies (2-1) host the Duke Blue Devils (2-1). Virginia Tech is 0-1 in conference play, and this will be Duke’s first conference opponent.
After getting destroyed 42-3 by #2 Alabama, Duke responded well over the next couple of weeks by scoring 45 and 41 points in victories over North Carolina A&T and Middle Tennessee. On average, the Blue Devils are scoring 30 points a game on 413 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 366 yards.
Senior Quentin Harris has been very good at quarterback for Duke. In addition to his 679 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions through the air, Harris also leads the team in rushing with 203 yards and another TD.
A big chunk of Duke’s scoring offense comes from freshman receiver Jalon Calhoun, who’s reeled in 15 passes for 153 yards and three touchdowns this year.
Virginia Tech endured a tough seven-point loss to Boston College to kick off the season, but rebounded with wins over Old Dominion and Furman. On average, Virginia Tech is scoring 27 points a game on 398 yards while allowing 23 points on 329 yards.
The Hokies offense is led by quarterback Ryan Willis, who’s thrown for 739 yards, seven touchdowns, and four picks.
Both defenses have looked less than dominant in their opportunities against cupcake competition, which means these capable offenses should be able to put up points Friday night. If the likes of Old Dominion and Middle Tennessee can score 17 or more, Duke and Virginia Tech are well equipped to reach their offensive averages or more.
|09-26-19||Navy v. Memphis OVER 53.5||Top||23-35||Win||100||33 h 56 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Navy/Memphis over53½ -110
Two undefeated AAC teams are set to go head to head on Thursday when the Navy Midshipmen (2-0) go on the road to take on the Memphis Tigers (3-0). The over/under is set at 53.5 points.
Navy has looked strong through two games, easily taking care of Holy Cross before defeating Eastern Carolina by a score of 42-10. On average, Navy is scoring 43 points a game on 499 yards of offense. The team has been good defensively by allowing just 8 points a game, but that’s come against inferior competition to what Navy will face Thursday.
After an impressive, low-scoring win over Ole Miss, Memphis went on to score 55 points against Southern and 42 points against South Alabama. On 487 yards of offense per game, the Tigers are averaging 37 points a game.
In five combined games, these two teams have scored at least 42 points in four of them, which makes the 53.5 point total look like a small number.
With quarterback Malcolm Perry throwing for just 254 yards and two TDs on the season, the running game is clearly the strength of the Navy offense. However, Perry has been incredibly efficient, earning those 254 yards on just 11 completions and 16 attempts.
Led by Perry’s 184 yards, Navy can boast three rushers over 100 yards and five over 50 yards thorough just two games. Perry has scored five times on the ground while fullback Nelson Smith has scored three and receiver CJ Williams has added another.
Memphis has been strong across the board on offense in their three games of the season. Quarterback Brady White is 52 of 72 for 718 yards, five touchdowns, and two picks.
The Tigers also have three rushers over 100 yards, but Kenneth Gainwell is the feature back. Gainwell has racked up 307 yards and three touchdowns through three games.
|09-21-19||Colorado v. Arizona State -8||34-31||Loss||-110||36 h 6 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Arizona State -8 -110
Coming off two overtime games, the Colorado Buffaloes (2-1) are headed on the road to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils (3-0).
Many expected the momentum from a huge come-from-behind win versus #25 Nebraska to carry over into Colorado’s contest against Air Force. It didn’t. The Falcons won the game by seven in another overtime thriller.
The Buffaloes are averaging 36 points on the back of 421 yards per game. Defensively, Colorado is allowing 30 points per game and giving up 472 yards of total offense on average.
With Arizona State’s suffocating defense, Buffalo quarterback Steven Montez will need to be careful as he attacks through the air. On the season, Montez is 67 of 104 for 827 yards, six touchdowns, and two picks.
The aforementioned defense of the Sun Devils is why Arizona State has gotten off to a flawless 3-0 start. In each of the teams three games, the opponent has been held to just seven points, and that includes #18 Michigan State.
The Sun Devils are averaging just 20 points a game, but that’s just fine when they’re only giving up a touchdown every time they step on the field.
With one of the best scoring defenses in the nation, Arizona State would love to get more production out of the offense and quarterback Jayden Daniels. The freshman is 47 of 77 for 728 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
|09-21-19||New Mexico State v. New Mexico -4||52-55||Loss||-109||31 h 39 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on New Mexico -4 -109
Saturday features an all-New Mexico affair as the New Mexico University Lobos (1-1) host the New Mexico State Aggies (0-3).
New Mexico State started off the season with a brutal schedule, taking on #23 Washington State and #2 Alabama. However, the Aggies will have wanted a better performance against San Diego State, to whom they lost by a score of 31-10.
Through three games, New Mexico State is scoring an average of nine points while allowing opponents to score 50.
Aggies quarterback Josh Adkins needs to have a good game, which includes protecting the football. On the season, Adkins is 73 of 113 for 665 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions.
New Mexico edged out Sam Houston State by eight in the season opener before falling to #7 Notre Dame by a score of 66-14. Those two results won’t scare many teams, as the Lobos are averaging 26 points per game while giving up 48.
While the Lobos have allowed 438 passing yards per game, they’ll be looking to pick off a turnover-prone Adkins and hand their offense extra possessions. If New Mexico can contain an Aggies rushing attack that’s averaging just 75 yards per game, they should be able to put pressure on Adkins.
|09-21-19||South Carolina +9.5 v. Missouri||14-34||Loss||-110||31 h 36 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on South Carolina +9½ -110
A pair of SEC foes will go head to head in Missouri as the South Carolina Gamecocks (1-2) try to take down the Missouri Tigers (2-1).
Although South Carolina’s record is the worse of the two, the two defeats have come against a good North Carolina squad and the #2 team in the country, Alabama. Missouri has beaten up on inferior competition, but also lost a shocker to Wyoming in the season opener.
By the numbers, we’re looking at an offensive strength versus a defensive strength in this matchup. While South Carolina has put up 501 yards a game, Missouri is averaging 473 yards of offense. However, the Tigers are allowing just 218 yards per game while the Gamecocks are giving up 440 on average.
Rico Dowdle was a solid performer last week against Alabama. On just 12 carries, Dowdle ran for 102 yards. That brings the running back’s season total up to 251 yards with a pair of scores.
Also encouraging for South Carolina is the play of freshman quarterback Ryan Helinski, who’s thrown for 606 yards, four touchdowns, and two picks in the two games he’s played. 324 of those yards and two of those TDs came against the Crimson Tide.
Kelly Bryant looked decent for Missouri against Southeast Missouri State a week ago. The senior QB threw for 225 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
9.5 points feels like a lot to lay for a Missouri team that failed to beat Wyoming.
|09-21-19||Central Michigan +30 v. Miami-FL||12-17||Win||100||30 h 15 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Central Michigan +30 -110
The Chippewas of Central Michigan (2-1) bounced back from a 61-0 thrashing at the hands of #17 Wisconsin to take down Akron. Saturday, Central Michigan takes on the Hurricanes (1-2) in Miami.
Although Central Michigan puts up just 373 yards of total offense per game, they’ve scored 38 and 45 points in their two victories this season. The team’s average of 35 points allowed is skewed heavily by the loss to Wisconsin.
Quarterback David Moore performed well in the start last week. Against the Zips, Moore threw for 317 yards and two touchdowns without a pick. Alongside running back Kobe Lewis, who rushed for 146 yards and three touchdowns a week ago, the Chippewas offer a balanced offensive attack.
The Hurricanes appear to be in the midst of a decline. After a 10-3 season in 2017, Miami went 7-6 a year ago before starting off the 2019 season with a record of 1-2. Before blowing out Bethune Cookman, the Hurricanes fell to #8 Florida and North Carolina.
Offensively, Miami scores an average of 36 points on 459 total yards. Defensively, the Hurricanes allow 17 points a game on 276 yards. Sticking to those averages won’t be enough to cover the 30 points Miami is giving Central Michigan.
In fact, Miami has failed to reach 30 points in two of its first three games.
So far, Miami quarterback Jarren Williams has thrown for 777 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions. However, half of Williams’ TDs came against Bethune Cookman last week.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Rutgers +8½ -109
Each with one loss on the record, the Boston College Eagles (2-1) are set to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (1-1) on Saturday.
Thus far, Boston College has had very little trouble putting points on the board. Since an impressive 35-28 win over Virginia Tech to start the season, the Eagles have scored 45 and 48 points. Although Boston College is allowing 30 points per game, they’re scoring an average of 35.
After a strong start, Boston College suffered an embarrassing loss to Kansas after coming into the matchup as 21-point favorites. Against the Jayhawks, Boston College allowed 329 yards on the ground and 567 yards of total offense.
Eagles quarterback Anthony Brown completed just half his passes for 195 yards and a TD. Running back AJ Dillon rushed for 150 yards and a touchdown, but the Boston College offense was scoreless in the second half.
After a 48-21 win over UMass to start the 2019 season, Rutgers was demolished by #20 Iowa in the team’s second contest. With an extra week to prepare, Rutgers will attempt to improve its 24 points a game and 25 points allowed per game.
Against superior competition, Rutgers only managed 125 yards of offense. Now going up against a Boston College team that struggled to finish tackles a week ago, the Scarlet Knights should have more success on the back of Isaih Pacheco, who’s rushed for 223 yards and four TDs through the first two games of the year.
|09-21-19||Southern Miss +39.5 v. Alabama||7-49||Loss||-110||26 h 15 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Southern Miss +39½ -110
The Golden Eagles of Southern Mississippi (2-1) have a tough task ahead of them as they go into Tuscaloosa to take on the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0).
In the team’s lone loss, which came against Mississippi State, Southern Miss only managed 15 points. However, the Golden Eagles were able to score 38 and 47 points in wins over Alcorn State and Troy. On average, Southern Miss is scoring 33 points and allowing 30 points per game.
Much of the Golden Eagles’ 453 yards per game come from the arm of QB Jack Abraham. Abraham has thrown for 990 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions on the season. With 347 passing yards per game, Southern Miss is ranked 12thin the nation.
The Golden Eagles will be hoping for another kickoff return for a touchdown from Jaylond Adams, who’s averaging one per game this season.
Alabama has yet to truly struggle this season, scoring at least 42 points in every game. On average, the Crimson Tide put up 50 points while holding opponents to 12 points per game. Alabama is also holding opponents to 308 yards of offense while racking up 562 yards themselves.
Already over the 1,000-yard mark, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is 70 of 91 for 1,007 yards and 12 touchdowns. Jerry Jeudy is on the receiving end of most Tagovailoa passes, earning 308 yards and four touchdowns thus far.
Southern Miss will point to a tight first quarter for Alabama against South Carolina in which the Crimson Tide only led by a score of 14-10. If Alabama has another slow start, the Golden Eagles will be sitting pretty with regard to the 39.5-point spread.

50* Powerhouse Play on UL-Monroe +18½ -109
Identical records will be put on the line Saturday when the University of Louisiana at Monroe Warhawks (1-1) go on the road to take on the Cyclones of Iowa State (1-1).
Both teams are coming off heartbreaking losses in their last contest. Let’s start with UL Monroe, who lost to Florida State 45-44 in overtime. That near-stunner came on September 7, so the Warhawks will have had an extra week to prepare for Saturday’s game.
Through two games, UL Monroe is scoring 37.5 points per game on 460 yards of total offense. Defensively, the Warhawks are allowing 27 points while opponents are racking up 454 yards per game.
Senior quarterback Caleb Evans has looked good for UL Monroe thus far, tossing three touchdowns and a pick while putting up 424 yards through the air. Although Iowa State presents a formidable rush defense, Warkawks running back Josh Johnson was able to run for 126 yards against FSU two weeks ago.
Despite two very close games to start the season – a three-point win in triple overtime before the one-point loss to Iowa – Iowa State is favored by 18.5 points.
To cover, the Cyclones will need a big performance out of quarterback Brock Purdy, who’s thrown for 554 yards and three touchdowns through the first two games of the season. Yet even with Purdy’s success so far in 2019, Iowa State is scoring just one more point per game than they’re allowing (23-22).
One reason Iowa State hasn’t enjoyed more offensive production this year is the lack of a running game. Kene Nwangwu is the team’s leading back with just 84 yards on the season.
In the last seven games, the Cyclones are 1-6 against the spread.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Air Force +8½ -110
A pair of undefeated teams will face off on the blue turf of Boise State as the #20 Broncos (3-0) host the Air Force Falcons (2-0). This game could have big implications for the Mountain West Conference standings at the end of the year.
The visitors are coming off an impressive overtime win against Colorado. Before that, the Falcons demolished Colgate in their season opener. The old-school Air Force offense has produced 454 yards per game while a strong defense is holding opponents to an average of 243 yards.
Don’t expect Air Force quarterback Donald Hammond to rack up a ton of yardage through the air. On just seven of 12 passes, Hammond threw for 155 yards, two touchdowns, and a pick. The Falcons’ offense relies much more heavily on the run game, which is led by Kadin Remsberg, who rushed for 146 yards against Colorado.
Boise State has started the year strong, taking down FSU in the opener before earning a close win against Marshall and blowing out Portland State. In contrast to an Air Force team led by defense, the Broncos want to outscore opponents. Boise State is averaging 516 yards of offense while giving up 280.
Averaging more than 300 yards a game, Boise State quarterback Hank Bachmeier has thrown for 927 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions on the season. Bachmeier’s favorite target is Khalil Shakir, who’s reeled in 17 balls for 237 yards and a TD.
Against a triple-option team that will wear any opponent down throughout the course of a game, Boise State will need its freshman QB to protect the ball and be efficient through the air. A relentless Air Force defense will love getting 8.5 points against a Broncos team that only managed 14 points against Marshall.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Houston +5½ -110
Thursday night will feature an American Athletic Conference clash between the visiting Houston Cougars (1-2) and the Green Wave of Tulane (2-1).
Houston has two losses on the record, but they’ve also faced one of the toughest opening schedules in the nation. After an impressive performance in a loss to #4 Oklahoma, the Cougars easily defeated Prairie View before dropping last week’s contest to #20 Washington State by a touchdown.
On the season, Houston is scoring 30 points per game while giving up an average of 32.
Tulane has enjoyed an easier schedule, but they did run into a brick wall when they faced #10 Auburn, losing 24-6. The Green Wave easily took care of business against two inferior opponents in the lead up to this conference game.
So far, Tulane is scoring 35 points per game while allowing an average of 14. Tulane is also putting up 436 yards of offense per game while allowing 276.
Houston is getting 5.5 points on the road, which is an interesting line considering the Cougars dominated Tulane in a 48-17 game last season.
So far, Houston quarterback D’Eriq King is 42 of 77 for 434 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Tulane quarterback Justin McMillan is 37 of 67 for 424 yards, two touchdowns, and two picks.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on New Mexico State +16 -110
It’s Aggies versus Aztecs on Saturday night as 0-2 New Mexico State plays host to 2-0 San Diego State.
San Diego State is coming off an upset 23-14 win over UCLA a week ago. So far, the Aztecs are scoring 14 points per game but allowing just six, due in large part to their shutout victory over Weber State to kick off the season.
New Mexico State may be winless through two games, but both were against quality opponents. After kicking things off against #23 Washington State, the Aggies went into Tuscaloosa to face #2 Alabama. Both games, which were on the road, ended in losses of at least 50 points.
San Diego State will need to be sharp if they’ll cover a 16-point spread on the road. That means the Aztecs will be counting on an efficient performance from running back Juwan Washington, who’s averaging 96 yards per game.
However, it’s the defense that leads the Aztecs. A solid UCLA team managed just 261 yards against the San Diego State D last week. Against the run, the Aztecs rank eighth in the nation.
Despite strong competition, New Mexico State quarterback Josh Adkins has looked pretty good. Although he’s thrown two picks versus one touchdown, Adkins is completing 65% of his passes and put up 366 total yards against two ranked opponents.
Against the spread, San Diego State is 2-8 out of their last 10 games overall.
|09-14-19||TCU -1.5 v. Purdue||34-13||Win||100||35 h 40 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on TCU -1½ -110
Thus far, the TCU Horned Frogs (1-0) have played just one game, a 39-7 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Saturday night, TCU will go into Ross-Ade Stadium to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (1-1).
Favored by 1.5 points in this contest, the Horned Frogs figure to be in the mix when it comes to the Big 12 title.
Although TCU went up against an FCS opponent in their first game of the year, they certainly took care of business. With 200 yards on the ground and 284 yards through the air, the Horned frogs carried an advantage of 484-215 yards of total offense over Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
The most intriguing part of Saturday’s matchup should be TCU’s pass defense against Purdue’s pass offense. The Horned frogs gave up just 114 yards through the air in their opener, and Purdue is third in the nation after putting up 466 yards per game thus far.
In last week’s win over Vanderbilt, Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar threw for 509 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. However, the Boilermakers managed just two yards per carry on the ground.
Purdue’s defense could be in trouble after allowing 420 yards to Vanderbilt through the air.
|09-14-19||Hawaii +22 v. Washington||20-52||Loss||-110||34 h 48 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Hawaii +22 -110
Following a pair of impressive home victories, the Rainbow Warriors of Hawai’I (2-0) will go on the road to take on the #23 Washington Huskies (1-1).
Hawai’i is known for scoring points, and they’ve done just that through their first two games by averaging 37 per game. An opening game win over Arizona was followed by a 31-28 victory over the Oregon State Beavers. Despite a strong start, the Rainbow Warriors are getting 22 points in this upcoming contest.
Washington looked great in their 47-14 drubbing of Eastern Washington. However, a tough 20-19 loss at the hands of Cal brought the Huskies’ average points per game down to 32.
It’s fair to say that Hawai’i junior quarterback Cole McDonald is a gunslinger. So far, McDonald has racked up 799 yards with eight touchdowns and five interceptions on the season. With a strong Washington defense searching for turnovers, McDonald will need to take better care of the football.
The Rainbow Warriors have put up 542 yards per game thus far, which is good enough for 14thin the nation.
After a 349-yard performance in the first game of the season, Washington quarterback Jacob Eason threw for just 162 yards and a pick in last week’s loss to California. A decent game out of Eason alongside a Huskies defense that ranks 48thin the country in yards allowed should be good enough to win, but they’ll need to score at a high clip if they’ll make up the 22 points they’re laying in this one.

50* Powerhouse Play on Louisville -10 -109
A pair of unranked 1-1 teams will face off in a neutral location as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers go up against the Cardinals of Louisville in Nashville, Tennessee.
After a 35-28 defeat to Central Arkansas, Western Kentucky bounced back to beat Florida International by a score of 20-14. After both contests, the Hilltoppers are averaging 24 points and giving up an average of 24.
Louisville also lost on opening week, but they played tough against #9 Notre Dame. The Cardinals showed they’re not a pushover after putting up 17 against the Irish before dominating Eastern Kentucky 42-0. Per game, Louisville scores 29 points and allows 17.
Getting 10 points, the Hilltoppers will need to be more careful with the ball if they’re going to compete with Louisville. Against FIU, Western Kentucky forced zero turnovers and coughed the ball up twice, one of which was a pick-six.
Western Kentucky racked up 339 yards of total offense and held Florida International to just 217, but the level of competition will be much higher this Saturday.
It felt like Louisville was letting out some frustration after letting the Notre Dame game get away from them as the Cardinals ran up the score against Eastern Kentucky. Louisville earned 542 yards of total offense while allowing just 172 yards.
Louisville quarterback Jawon Pass is 24 of 46 for 330 yards and four touchdowns alongside one interception.
|09-14-19||USC -3.5 v. BYU||27-30||Loss||-110||30 h 3 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on USC -3½ -110
After a big win over #23 Stanford, the #24 USC Trojans (2-0) look to stay unbeaten as they go on the road to take on the unranked BYU Cougars (1-1).
After falling behind 20-10 against the Cardinal, USC scored the final 35 points of the game to get an impressive victory over Stanford. After two games, the Trojans are averaging 37 points per game while giving up 21.
The Cougars were expected to lose to #14 Utah in the season opener, and they did so by a score of 30-12. BYU faced Tennessee next, needing double overtime to win by three points. So far, BYU is averaging 20 points for and 27 points against.
The visitors come into this matchup as 3.5-point favorites, and the spread should be even bigger if USC will get a repeat performance out of freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis. In his first career start, Slovis was 28 of 33 for 377 yards, three touchdowns, and no picks.
Although quarterback Zach Wilson was able to lead the Cougars on a game-tying drive before an eventual 2OT win last week, he may have trouble finding time to pick out receivers with an offensive line allowing pressure. Wilson was 19 for 29 with 232 yards and a TD against Tennessee.
Following a win by 20 or more points, USC is 5-2 out of their last seven against the spread.
|09-14-19||Arkansas State v. Georgia -32.5||0-55||Win||100||27 h 60 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Georgia -32½ -109
The 1-1 Arkansas State Red Wolves face a very tall task Saturday as they go into Athens to take on the #3 Bulldogs of Georgia (2-0).
Arkansas State has been able to put up points so far this season, scoring an average of 36 after scoring 43 in last week’s win over UNLV. With 93 total points through two weeks of play, Georgia has scored even more. With an average of 46 points scored and 11 points allowed per game, Georgia has gotten off to a fast start.
Although the Red Wolves were good against UNLV, they allowed almost 200 yards on the ground. That’s a scary statistic as they come up against a Bulldogs rushing attack that averaged 6.7 yards per attempt and racked up 269 yards last week against Murray State.
Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm hasn’t been lighting up the passing numbers, but he hasn’t needed to. In his first two games, Fromm has thrown for 156 and 166 yards, but only had one incompletion a week ago. If the running game has the success we expect, Fromm could become deadly on play-action passing plays.
Following a win by 20 or more points, Georgia is 14-5 in their last 19 games against the spread.

50* Powerhouse Play on Miami-OH +18½ -110
The Redhawks of Miami of Ohio (1-1) will travel into Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats (1-1) in a noon kickoff on Saturday.
While Miami is coming off a 48-17 trouncing of Tennessee Tech, Cincinnati will be looking for a comeback performance after a dreadful 42-0 defeat at the hands of #5 Ohio State.
With the Redhawks getting 18.5 points in this contest, it’s worth noting that Miami of Ohio lost to #20 Iowa by 24 points. On average, Miami has scored 30 points per game while allowing 27. After the shutout loss, Cincinnati has averaged just 11 points per game while giving up 27.
If Miami is going to keep this game close, they’ll likely need a bigger performance through the air from quarterback Brett Gabbert. In his first two games, the freshman QB threw for 186 and 152 yards. Gabbert provides a threat on the ground as well, but the Redhawks will need his arm against a good Cincinnati defense.
While it’s no surprise that Cincinnati lost to Ohio State, the 42-0 score line was a bit of a shocker for most. Sophomore quarterback Desmond Ridder threw for just 166 yards and a pick against the Buckeyes, and might need a few plays to shake off that rough outing.
Against the spread, Cincinnati is 0-5 coming off a game in which they allowed 40 or more points.
|09-13-19||Kansas +21 v. Boston College||Top||48-24||Win||100||23 h 5 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Kansas +21 -115
Boston College has gotten off to a strong 2-0 start after dispatching both Virginia Tech and Richmond. Tonight, the Eagles with host the Kansas Jayhawks (1-1).
While Boston College has been able to put up points, scoring a total of 80 through two weeks of play, Kansas has struggled to do so. After squeaking out a 24-17 win against Indiana State, the Jayhawks managed only seven in a loss to Coastal Carolina.
Under new head coach Les Miles, the Kansas offense is expected to pick up as the season progresses, and the Jayhawks should be able to keep many games close with a defense that’s allowing an average of just 14.5 points per game on the season.
Offensively, Kansas can count on the running duo of Khalil Herbert and Pooka Williams Jr., the latter of whom was one yard shy of triple digits rushing on 22 carries last week.
Allowing an average of 20.5 points, the weakness of this Boston College squad could turn out to be a defensive line that lost plenty of talent from a year ago. However, the Eagles were able to comfortably take down Virginia Tech despite being 4.5-point dogs.
For Kansas, the key to this game will likely be turning the ball over. Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown hasn’t thrown a pick yet this season, but a Jayhawks defense that held Coastal Carolina to just 291 total yards last week could frustrate Brown enough to force the ball into tight windows.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Arkansas State +1½ -110
Seeking its first 2-0 start in two decades, the UNLV Rebels (1-0) will host the Arkansas State Red Wolves (0-1) Saturday evening in what figures to be a tight matchup.
Despite big passing numbers from its quarterback, Arkansas State lost to SMU by a touchdown at home in Week 1 of the season. Against Southern Utah, UNLV took care of business and won by a score of 56-23.
In their opening game loss, Arkansas State quarterback Logan Bonner threw for 324 yards and four touchdowns, all of which were caught by Omar Bayless. Bayless finished the game with 10 catches for 132 yards, and proved that the Red Wolves have a scary quarterback-receiver combination.
The downfall for Arkansas State in Week 1 came in the form of a kickoff returned for a touchdown and 11 penalties, both of which should be correctable coming into the second game of the season.
Against significantly inferior competition, it’s hard to gauge just how well UNLV can carry over its 534-yard performance against Southern Utah. However, they’ll be hoping for more from Charles Williams, who rushed for 143 yards on 15 carries.
Of UNLV’s last 13 Week 2 games, the Rebels have won only three.

50* Powerhouse Play on Eastern Michigan +15½ -109
Although Kentucky might be looking ahead to next week’s matchup with #11 Florida, the Wildcats (1-0) could have their hands full this Saturday when the Eastern Michigan Eagles come to town.
While Eastern Michigan took down Coastal Carolina by a score of 30-23 in their first game of the season, Kentucky jumped out to a 1-0 start by overwhelming Toledo to the tune of 38-24.
With their sights set on a MAC title, the Eagles would love to prove their might against Kentucky. To do so, they’ll need another near-perfect game from quarterback Mike Glass, who completed 20 of 22 passes for 188 yards and three touchdowns against Coastal Carolina.
If Eastern Michigan can get running back Shaq Vann going, this offense could be dangerous. Vann rushed for 84 yards last week, but was expected to do better against a lesser opponent than the one they’ll face Saturday.
Kentucky received a good performance out of QB Terry Wilson in Week 1. Wilson threw for 246 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but with Kentucky playing as more than two-touchdown favorites, he’ll need to be as good or better against Eastern Michigan.
DeAndre Square had a monster game from the linebacker position for Kentucky last week, yet the Wildcats allowed 24 points. If square can’t replicate his 11 tackles, 0.5 sack, and interception once again, Kentucky might be poised to give up a significant amount of points.
|09-07-19||BYU v. Tennessee -3.5||29-26||Loss||-105||32 h 24 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Tennessee -3½ -105
One team will remain winless after Saturday’s contest between the Brigham Young University Cougars (0-1) and Tennessee Volunteers (0-1).
BYU was overmatched against #14 Utah in last week’s 30-12 loss. Against Georgia State, Tennessee suffered one of the most shocking defeats of college football’s opening week by a score of 38-30.
Although BYU quarterback Zach Wilson notched a career-high 21 completions for 208 yards, he also tossed a pair of pick-sixes that would’ve been enough to earn the Utes the win by themselves. Tyson Williams also fumbled away a possession that led to a TD for the Utes.
Taking care of the football will be a focus for BYU, but they also need to improve against the run. Utah tallied 262 yards on the ground and controlled the game.
Tennessee struggled to run the ball against Georgia State, racking up just 93 yards on the ground, but quarterback Jarrett Guarantano threw for 311 yards and two touchdowns. Like BYU, the real struggle for the Volunteers was defending the run. They allowed 213 rushing yards in what they hope to be a wake-up call for this defense.
Tennessee now has a great chance to bounce back against a weaker BYU team at home.

50* Powerhouse Play on UCLA -7½ -110
The Rose Bowl will be the venue for a Week 2 clash between the San Diego State Aztecs (1-0) and UCLA Bruins (0-1).
The Aztecs started their 2019 campaign with one of the lowest-scoring football games you’ll ever see: a 6-0 win over Weber State. UCLA wasn’t able to score much more, and lost to Cincinnati by a score of 24-14.
The Bruins are more than a touchdown favorite in this one, and the lack of production for San Diego State’s offense is a big reason why. Against Weber State, the Aztecs averaged just 3.3 yards per play. While the San Diego State defense did its job, allowing only 154 yards, the offense failed to find the end zone. Instead, it needed kicker Matt Ariaza to score all six of its points.
UCLA lost by 10 to Cincinnati in large part because of quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson tossing two interceptions and losing two fumbles. Thompson Robinson completed just eight passes for 156 yards.
The Bruins’ offense struggled, but injuries have to take at least some of the blame. UCLA was without the services of two offensive linemen, its leading returning receiver, and 1,200-yard rusher Joshua Kelley. All four injured players were at practice this week and would provide a huge boost to the team.
UCLA has never lost to San Diego State.

50* Powerhouse Play on Connecticut +22 -110
It was hardly a fair fight when Illinois (1-0) defeated Akron last week. Now, the Fighting Illini shift their focus to their first away fixture of the year as they take on the UConn Huskies (1-0).
After jumping out to the lead on the first drive of the game and going into halftime up 28-3, Illinois coasted in their 42-3 drubbing of Akron last week. Meanwhile, the Huskies squeaked out a three-point win over Wagner at home.
Illinois earned 401 yards of total offense and forced two turnovers while holding Akron to just 192 yards of offense. It was a great start for Michigan transfer Brandon Peters, who completed 14 passes for 163 yards and three touchdowns on top of 36 yards rushing and another touchdown on the ground.
However, the loss of running back Mike Epstein, who led the team with 45 yards on eight carries, should hinder the Fighting Illini run game.
Although UConn was only able to defeat an FCS opponent by three, the Huskies led by a significant amount in just about every category other than turnovers. If they can limit those giveaways, one of which was a pick-six, UConn could be a tough opponent.
On top of a 26-12 advantage in first downs, the Huskies earned 392 yards of offense and allowed just 185. And with a strong run game that earned 234 yards on 60 carries, UConn could easily slow this matchup down and bleed the clock, giving Illinois a tighter window to reach the 22 points they’re laying.

50* Powerhouse Play on Rutgers +20 -110
Apart from Purdue and Northwestern, the Big Ten went undefeated through the first week of college football. That means we’ll see two 1-0 teams face off in Iowa City as the #20 Iowa Hawkeyes host the unranked Scarlet Knights of Rutgers.
Rutgers opened the season with a 48-21 throttling of UMass, while Iowa took care of business against Miami of Ohio with a convincing 38-14 victory.
The Scarlet Knights will obviously be facing tougher competition in this contest, but they’ll be encouraged by their come-from-behind victory after giving up the first 14 points of the game. Texas Tech transfer and starting quarterback McLane Carter threw a pick on his second pass of the game, but ended with 340 yards, two TDs, and three total interceptions in a 21-for-31 performance.
And while Rutgers can be excited about Carter’s arm talent, they may be even more eager to see if running back Isaih Pacheco and an improved offensive line can duplicate a 156-yard, four-touchdown performance. We’ll see how far the Rutgers running game can go against last year’s 12th-ranked rush defense.
Returning Iowa quarterback Nate Stanley has been safe, consistent, and efficient over the past two years with 52 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Stanley offered more of the same against Miami of Ohio when he racked up 252 yards and three TDs without a pick.
Only leading by a field goal at halftime versus Miami, the Hawkeyes will need to be much better out of the gate if they’ll have a shot at covering the 20-point spread against a tougher Rutgers squad.

50* Powerhouse Play on Akron +9½ -110
The Akron Zips (0-1) will aim to defend their home field when the UAB Blazers (1-0) come to town on Saturday afternoon.
Akron opened the 2019 season with a dreadful performance against Illinois, who dominated the Zips to the tune of 42-3. In their opening contest, the Blazers picked up a close win against Alabama State by the score of 24-19.
As the score line shows, Illinois had its way with Akron. The Zips managed just 192 total yards of offense while allowing the Fighting Illini to rack up 400 yards and score on six of seven trips to the red zone. Akron quarterback Kato Nelson threw for just 128 yards and a pick on 28 attempts.
However, Akron was without three starters – left tackle Trevor Brown, cornerback Alvin Davis, and nose tackle Davon’te Jest – who are all key players for the squad and should provide a boost if they’re available Saturday.
Although UAB claimed the win in their first game of the season, quarterback Tyler Johnston was just 8-of-19 with 114 yards and a touchdown. Most of the damage was done on the ground, where UAB ran for 176 yards.
A big worry for the Blazers will be there inability to score in the second half of the game, and needing a goal-line stand to keep Alabama State from taking the lead in the fourth quarter.
Akron will expect less pressure on Nelson with the potential return of his left tackle, which could be trouble for an ineffective UAB offense laying 9.5 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on William & Mary +35½ -110
Only two teams in the Coastal division of the ACC earned a victory in Week 1; Virginia was one of them. Tonight, the Cavaliers (1-0) will play host to the visiting William & Mary Tribe (1-0).
The Lafayette Leopards fell victim to William & Mary in the Tribe’s kickoff game by a score of 30-17. Virginia faced much stiffer competition in the form of Pittsburgh, but won by the similar score of 30-14.
Sandwiched between Pitt and Florida State, who the Cavaliers play next week, this William & Mary contest is shaping up to be a trap game for Virginia.
Getting 35.5 points, the Tribe will rely on their two best aspects of the game from a week ago to keep this contest as close as possible: the run game and turnovers. Led by Hollis Mathis, William & Mary rushed for 265 yards as a team. The defense provided assist after assist for the offense with four takeaways.
Defense led the way for Virginia in last week’s victory. In addition to only being penalized three times as a team, the Cavaliers held Pittsburgh to just 78 yards on the ground.
Time could fly by in this one with both teams attempting to get the running game going. If that’s the case, Virginia should struggle to reach the 35.5-spread.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Louisville +18½ -110
The Louisville Cardinals will open their 2019 campaign at home against the visiting #9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Monday night.
After a dreadful 2-10 season, Louisville has overhauled the coaching staff and taken the program in a new direction. That fresh start is much needed for a team that allowed 44 points per game while scoring just 19 themselves.
It was a very different 2018 for Notre Dame, who ended the year with a 12-1 record with a loss in the semi-final round of the College Football Playoff. The Fighting Irish scored an average of 31 and allowed 18 per game.
After earning a 47-16 record over five seasons with Appalachian State, new Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield will put his own twist on a team that returns 16 starters. Perhaps his most important job will be improving starting quarterback Jawon Pass, who threw for 1,960 yards, eight touchdowns, and 12 interceptions in 2018.
Despite owning the 13th-ranked scoring defense in the country, Notre Dame struggled to win their first three games last season. The offense was slow to get started, as the Irish failed to score 25 points against #14 Michigan, Ball State, and Vanderbilt.
On the back of 2,628 yards, 19 touchdowns, and seven interceptions, Ian Book will start for Notre Dame. If Louisville can turn Book over, 18.5 will be a lot of points to overcome.

The Houston Cougars have a tough task to start out the 2019 season as they travel into Norman to take on the #4 Sooners of Oklahoma.
Houston defeated its only ranked opponent last season with a 57-36 win over #21 South Florida, and finished the year with a record of 8-5. The Cougars won games by outscoring their competition as they put up 43 per game while allowing an average of 37.
Coming off a 12-2 season, Oklahoma is the favorite to win the Big 12. A high-scoring loss to Alabama knocked the Sooners out of the College Football Playoff at the semi-final stage. On average, Oklahoma scored 48 points and allowed 33 per game in 2018.
23.5 points is a lot to give a team that finished seventh in FBS in total offense with 512.5 yards per game, especially considering they’ll have returning quarterback D’Eriq King. In addition to 2,982 yards and 36 touchdowns through the air, King added 674 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground.
The Sooners have had the pleasure of having Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray at QB in recent years, and they might be spoiled again with Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts arriving. While going 26-2 as a starter for the Crimson Tide, Hurts threw for 5,256 yards and 48 touchdowns as well as racking up nearly 2,000 yards as a rusher.
Defense is the bigger worry for Oklahoma after holding only two teams under the 20-point mark a season ago. The Sooners allowed at least 40 points on six occasions.
Against the spread, this solid Houston team is 15-4 in its last 19 competitions on grass.

50* Powerhouse Play on Auburn -3 -115
The best opening-game matchup of the college football season pits the #11 Oregon Ducks against the #16 Auburn Tigers in a neutral-site contest at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This game is a rematch of the 2011 BCS National Championship Game.
After defeating Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl, Oregon finished with a record of 9-4 in 2018. The Ducks put up 34 points per game while allowing 25 on average last season.
Auburn completed 2018 with a record of 8-5 after losing to #5 Georgia and #1 Alabama late in the season. The Tigers scored 30 points per game and gave up 19.
Oregon returns 17 starters from a season ago, including quarterback Justin Herbert (3,151 yards, 29 touchdowns, eight interceptions in 2018), but they weren’t great against ranked competition. The Ducks defeated #24 Cal and #7 Washington, but lost to #7 Stanford and #25 Washington State.
Head coach Gus Malzahn returned to play-calling duties for the bowl game against Purdue, which Auburn won by a score of 63-14. Now, Malzahn gets a new toy in the form of freshman quarterback Bo Nix, who was Alabama’s Mr. Football in 2018 and comes in as the top-ranked dual threat QB in the 2019 recruiting class.

An SEC versus ACC rivalry game will help us kick off the first full weekend of college football when the Gamecocks of South Carolina head into Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. to take on the Tar Heels of North Carolina.
North Carolina’s last victory against South Carolina came in 1991, and it doesn’t look likely to happen again this year for a Tar Heels squad that won just two games last season. North Carolina didn’t have much of a recipe for success last year, allowing 34 points per game while scoring an average of 27.
South Carolina finished out the 2018 season with a record of 7-5 after losing to Virginia in the Belk Bowl. The Gamecocks will be eager to start the season off right with #1 Clemson, #2 Alabama, and #3 Georgia all on the schedule.
South Carolina senior quarterback Jake Bentley (3,171 yards, 27 TDs in 2018) returns alongside three of his top four pass catchers. That doesn’t bode well for a North Carolina team losing its three top tacklers from a year ago.
Against the spread, the Gamecocks are 12-5 in their last 17 versus ACC competition.

50* Powerhouse Play on Georgia State +27 -110
Neither the Georgia State Panthers nor the Tennessee Volunteers had the season they wanted last year. Georgia State went 2-10 on the year while Tennessee finished 5-7 with a 2-6 record in conference play.
It’s easy to see why both programs struggled in 2018. The Panthers allowed 37 points per game while scoring just 23 of their own. The Volunteers weren’t a great deal better, scoring just 22 points per game and giving up 27.
Georgia State is aiming to improve this year based on their experience. At quarterback, Dan Ellington returns.
