Hate to disappoint, but TGT will be on leave for the rest of the week. Thus, we will lock in our weekly winners today. Have a happy Thanksgiving and be safe out there!
Short reasons again since it worked last week.
Clemson @ South Carolina (+3)– Better team, on a roll since early losses, could slip since SC had off week last week and might be looking ahead to Tech, but still covers. Lay the points and take Clemson.
Tennessee @ Kentucky (+3)– Much better team, line would be lower if UGA hadn’t wet the bed. Take the Vols.
Utah State @ Idaho (-3) – Off the wall pick of the week and was off last week. Idaho covers the 3.
Arizona at Arizona State (+3)- Arizona Wildcats cover.
Arkansas at LSU (-3.5)- Les Miles has fallen bass ackward in all kinds of lucky games the last few years. Last week at Ole Miss, playing with fire finally burned him. Arkansas has gotten better as the season has progressed. I like Arkansas in this one, and LSU will fall to .500 in conference play the last two season. Maybe LSU and Georgia could do a coach swap?
Miami at South Florida (+5.5)- Miami.
Alabama (-10.5) at Auburn-The most important game for Alabama is next week against Florida. The most important game for Auburn is this week against Alabama and the Iron Bowl. This game is dangerous for Bama and will be in doubt in the 4th quarter. Take Auburn and the 10.5
Georgia at Georgia Tech (-7.5)-Just a horrific loss by the Dawgs last week at Kentucky. Don’t be surprised if the Dawgs pack it in and get ready for the changes to the coaching staff. Paul Johnson has made it a mission to prove that his team is the dominant one in the state. This one could get ugly. Tech covers!
Arkansas at LSU (-3.5)- No one coach in America is a bigger goat right now than Les Miles. He’s facing and up and coming Arkansas team that will be preseason top 15 team next season. Plus, Bobby Petrino is one of the great offensive minds in America with a future top ten draft pick running the show. Arkansas will win this one straight up, but take the points just in case.
Clemson (-3) @ South Carolina- Clemson’s playing good ball right now and will overmatch SC in all aspects. The biggest difference will be the D, as SC won’t be able to score many against a very stingy Clemson defense. Clemson may ease up in the second half, but will still cover the 3.
UNC (-6) @ NC State- Staying in the Carolina’s with this one and going with another road team. NC State has been on a major slide and has only one win (Maryland) in their past 7 games. Look for that trend to continue as a pretty good UNC team comes to visit.
Arizona (-3) @ Arizona State- This is a sandwich game for Arizona, in between Oregon and USC, but they are a much better team and will beat their in-state rivals handily. Arizona State has been all but terrible and can not match up with the Wildcats. Lay the 3.
