After a strong 8-1 performance in Week 3 (including 3-0 on Love It! selections), I’ve turned my attention to Week 4…
Michigan (+3.5) at Wisconsin – As much as I’d like to see the Wolverines lose here, this is all about necessity and urgency under Jim Harbaugh. The Michigan football program is desperate for a quality Big Ten win and that desperation will play in their favor. I expect an A-game performance here.
West Virginia (-4) at Kansas – Let’s not overreact to Kansas beating Boston College last week (more on that below) and make Kansas out to be a better team. This is still a program being rebuilt under Les Miles and the talent isn’t there to keep up with the Mountaineers.
Louisiana (+3.5) at Ohio – The Ragin’ Cajuns will put up some points here against an Ohio defense that is giving up 450+ yards per game this season (180+ yards on the ground). I’ll take the 3.5 points led by the Ragin’ Cajuns rushing attack.
Louisville (+7) at Florida State – Let’s ride the momentum from last week and take Scott Satterfield’s squad with a touchdown head start.
Tulsa (-3) vs. Wyoming – There may not be any offensive fireworks in this one, but Tulsa looked well-rounded last week against Oklahoma State. Tulsa should have success against a relatively one-dimensional Wyoming team.
New Mexico (-4) vs. New Mexico State – New Mexico looked competitive against Notre Dame last week for just over a quarter. That’s more than New Mexico State can say this season being outscored 151-27. I’ll take the home team.
Georgia (-14) vs. Notre Dame – Since these two teams met in 2017, Georgia has ascended into National Championship consideration and has nearly beaten Alabama twice. Notre Dame may be able to keep this close early but the talented Bulldogs roster will allow Georgia to cover 14 points.
TEASE OF THE WEEK!
Boston College (-2.5) & Washington (-0.5) – Boston College is coming off of an embarrassing loss to Kansas, and despite the Huskies loss to Cal in week 2, Washington is one of the better teams in the country. I sense both teams are a bit undervalued this week. Take 6 points off of each spread and they look really strong.
