Kansas State (+7) at Mississippi State – The Wildcats have put up 101 points through two games this season. Their offense will be enough to keep them within a score (if not win) against Mississippi State.
Army (-17) at UTSA – I’ve been on the wrong side for Army games two weeks in a row. That changes here against the Roadrunners.
Oklahoma State (-14) at Tulsa – Tulsa is averaging only 310 yards per game compared to 568 by Oklahoma State. Mike Gundy’s Cowboys will be able to put up some points this weekend and cruise to a comfortable victory.
NC State (-6.5) at West Virginia – The Wolfpack have over 1,000 yards of offense compared to only 465 by the Mountaineers through two games this season. That’s enough for me to lay 6.5 points.
UCF (-9) vs. Stanford – All we’ve heard for the past few years is how UCF needs to play quality Power Five teams. Saturday fits this mold and UCF will be motivated to prove they belong.
Navy (-7) vs. ECU – I like ECU and think they’re on the right track but the Navy offense is too much to handle at this stage for the Pirates.
Louisville (-10) at Western Kentucky – I underestimated Louisville in Week 1 vs. the Irish. WKU is not a good football team so let’s even the score on Louisville games.
Charlotte (-20.5) at UMass – Charlotte cost me last week playing Appalachian State very tough. If they replicate half of that effort against the Minutemen, this game will not be close.
TEASE OF THE WEEK!
Arkansas (-4) & Duke (-0.5) – Arkansas doesn’t have a great offense, but CSU is flat out awful. Tease this down to less than a TD. It pains me to bet on Duke because the MTSU mascot – Lightning, aka the “Majestic Blue Dragon” – is the best in college football. Fortunately for Duke, Lightning won’t be putting on a helmet Saturday.
