    Two of them I'm placing is Iowa at -2.5.
    I really like the Hawks in this one.
    I don't think they disappoint. They are gaining momentum on the season and I don't think it slows down. They are hungry. The big stage is calling and I think Iowa answers.
    Call me crazy but Nebraska at -14.
    I think they get it together. They are pissed about last week and looking to take it out on someone. They have enough speed at qb and decent rb's to cover in this game. Going into conference play they really need a confidence boost and nothing cures that like winning and making a statement doing it.

    USC -3.5 at BYU is so tempting

    My favorite bet right now is Duke/MTSU over 50.5. I don't really understand this line.

    Glance at these team stats:

    https://www.espn.com/college-football/game/_/gameId/401112450

    Then remind yourself that Duke got beat by Alabama 42-3 in week 1 and MTSU put up 21 on Michigan in Week 1. This game just screams shootout so I don't know why the over/under isn't around 60. Clearly Vegas knows more than me so I will enjoy losing my shirt on this one.

    Still need to study Big Ten lines.

    Side note: I saw that Eno Benajmin is playing in East Lansing this weekend. Time to see what he can do against a Big Ten defense.

    I don’t really anything as a sure bet this week for the spread.

    I wouldn’t touch Iowa/ISU with anything.

    Georgia giving 30+ buttload I guess.

    Utah beat N Illinois by 18 and they are heads and shoulders better than Nebraska. I think the line is tempting you to take Nebraska....but if I was betting this game, I'd take N Illinois.

    I agree with both. I think Iowa has the balance this year and Epenesa will be a bad matchup and disrupt Iowa St. I like Iowa by at least 5 pts.

    I wouldn't touch that one. Not sure about USC.

    I went total homer this week and put my entire weekly allotment on the Hawks at -140 straight up.

    It will be stress-free because 1) I don't have to care about any other games, and 2) If the Hawkeyes lose I'll be way more bummed out over getting beat by the second-biggest douche rocket team in the country than I will about losing the amount of money I put down.

    That's what everyone said about my Minnesota pick last week and that one was never in doubt.

    We can prop that one since it's not an Iowa team. Go get 'em tiger! ;)

    Straight up, yes. 14, no.

    Iowa is 17-1 straight up and 15-3 ATS in their last 18 games as road favorites.






    Still not touchin' it.

    I live in Tempe and have been following Eno. They have a backup true freshman at center due to injury who has been getting destroyed. MSU should beat them easily. The true freshman qb at ASU will be special though if he survives Saturday.

    Too late already touched. It’s BYU I’ll take my chances even with a backup qb.
