Eastern Michigan (-1) vs. Ball State – Eastern Michigan has beaten Ball State by a combined 98-34 over the past two seasons. I’ll lay one point at home.
Ole Miss (+12.5) at Missouri – The Rebels have played a tougher schedule this season (Alabama, Cal…) and it will pay off here. I’ll take the points.
Oregon vs. Colorado (Over 58.5) – Colorado QB Montez has played in Eugene before in 2016 and threw 3 TDs. If Colorado is able to replicate that production, this game may approach 70 points.
Maryland (-3) at Purdue – In a battle of the backup QBs, Maryland will take care of business. Take that Penn State game out of the equation and Maryland looks like a solid top 25 football team.
Central Michigan (-10) vs. New Mexico State – I always look for opportunities to fade bad teams. CMU should win easily here. They may even try to get Antonio Brown some playing time with a comfortable lead!
North Texas (+3) at Southern Mississippi – The Mean Green laid an egg last week against Houston. That give you value this week. North Texas has had the Golden Eagles’ number and that won’t change this weekend.
Army (-4.5) at Western Kentucky – Western Kentucky is not a good football team. Army has underwhelmed this season compared to last, but they’ll break away in this one.
Charlotte (+5) at Florida International – My opinion of Charlotte changed when they played with App State. Charlotte will keep this close and may even win outright.
TEASE OF THE WEEK!
Texas (+17) & Iowa (+10) – The Red River Rivalry is exactly that… a rivalry. This should be a close game. With Iowa, I expect a strong bounce back performance and potentially a win.
