Appalachian State (-6.5) vs. Louisiana – This is a true home game for App State. They won by 10 at Louisiana earlier this season in a hard-fought and low scoring game. I would not be surprised if this were close early, but the Mountaineers will pull away to win by more than a TD.
Florida Atlantic (-7) vs. UAB – This is also a home game for the FAU Owls (aka “Fighting Lane Kiffins” at least for a few more days). The Owls only three losses this season were to Ohio State (by only 24), UCF and Marshall… all respectable. None of their nine wins have been by less than 10. I’m seeing -7.5 currently so I’d recommend buying the half point to -7.
Ohio State (-16.5) vs. Wisconsin – The Buckeyes have been solid all season. This game is on turf in Indianapolis and the Badgers will not be able to keep up with Ohio State’s speed. Ohio State is also motivated to make a statement and keep the #1 seed so they won’t take their foot off the gas.
TEASE OF THE WEEK!
Boise State (-7) & Ohio State (-10) – Boise State gets Hawaii at home on the Smurf Turf and Ohio State hasn’t won by less than 10 all season. This requires a 6.5 point tease.
