Friday Locks

Sorry for no leans on Tuesday…it was kind of a busy day for four of us (especially for one of us…we’ll touch on that later). Another great weekend of games tomorrow, headlined by Alabama-LSU and SC-Arkansas. Here are our locks for this week (no record to go by, corbin’s been MIA since Georgia-Florida; minimal write ups this week as well).


NC State @ Clemson (-3.5)

Indiana @ Michigan (-3.5)

Louisville (-6.5) @ Syracuse


North Carolina State @ Clemson (-3.5) I know, folks tell us to never bet on Clemson. But they’re wrong. You can always bet on Clemson to lose silly little games they should win by 3 TD’s. You can also bet on Clemson to blow away teams that should play them tough. I’m calling for a bounce back here by our brethren from SC. Lay the 3.5 as Clemson wins by double digits.

Baylor @ Oklahoma State (-8) This is going to be a high scoring game in Stillwater, as two of the best O’s in the Big 12 are facing off in surprisingly big game. Vegas is calling the over at 73. I don’t want to touch that, but I think it will be close to a 42-38 type game. Interesting stat of the day: Oklahoma State hasn’t lost to Baylor in Stillwater since 1939. I think that just may change tomorrow. I’ll stop shy of proclaiming that Baylor will win outright, but I’ll take the 8 points and Baylor in this one, as I think this will go down to the wire.

Oklahoma (-3.5) @ Texas A&M The Fightin’ Texas Aggies played well last week against in-state rival Texas Tech. I think they’ll play Oklahoma tough for a while, but Oklahoma needs this game badly just to keep up with Baylor (yes, I said Baylor). Look for Oklahoma to pull away and win by double digits with their high powered offense. I’m laying the 3.5 and calling for Oklahoma to cover.


Oklahoma (-3.5) @ Texas A&M

Iowa (-17.5) @ Indiana

Boston College (-3) @ Wake Forest


Florida (-14.5) at Vanderbilt Florida’s is refocused and now has a revamped no huddle offense.  Look for the Gators to take it to lowly Vanderbilt.  Gators cover with ease. 

Hawaii (+21) at Boise State I had success with Boise State this season.  Hawaii is having a nice season themselves.  Although it is on the Mainland, I will take the Rainbow Warriors getting 21.

Fresno State (+1) at Louisiana Tech If I am in last place, might as well go with some pasty games.  Take the point but you won’t need it, Pat Hill’s squad will win this one.


Nebraska (-18) @ Iowa State

Louisville @ Syracuse (-6.5)

Washington @ Oregon (-35.5)
