Kentucky +24.5 over Florida (win)
Florida is the better team here, but Kentucky does have excellent athletes that can take QB Kyle Trask off his mark as he is not the most mobile of QB’s. Kentucky gas a mobile QB and can run the ball so I believe they can control the clock and make this game boring. This is a really high spread that Florida will cover if Kentucky decides to throw the ball all over the lot. I don’t think that will be their game plan. Look for the Wildcats athletic ability in the trenches to make this game interesting. Take Kentucky.

PSU +1 over Michigan (win)
Neither team is any good this year, but I see the potential in PSU. I see nothing from Michigan. This is a Wolverines team that need overtime just to get past Rutgers and they got lucky to even win that. This defensive unit is not good and I believe today PSU will roll up decent offense with their duel QB play. PSU is breaking in new running backs and should find steady offense as the season goes on. This team is playing for pride at this point, but I believe the job of head coach James Franklin is fine. Jim Harbaugh will be hitting the road any minute now at Michigan. This is a team that has no offense or defense and I just don’t trust anything about them. Take Penn State.

Pitt +23.5 over Clemson (loss)
Kenny Pickett is a tough player who has fought injury all year. This Pitt team has the ability to run the football and it has playmakers who can beat cornerbacks. Clemson has been off for a few weeks and Trevor Lawrence missed a few games before that. This team is not in the rhythm you would want to cover a spread this high. Pitt has the coaching and the toughness to hang in this game. Clemson has made some special teams mistakes this year as well. The Tigers lost a lot of talent from last year and it’s so hard to crank it up and dominate without the packed stadiums. Take Pitt.

Troy +13.5 over Appalachian State (loss)
Appalachian State has a few injuries with their running game and Zac Thomas is still a little wobbled coming off a big hit that forced him out of the game a few weeks ago. Troy has very good defenders that can make plays. Troy also has great skilled players. This is a team for the most part that has underachieved this year with the talent they have on both sides of the ball, but I don’t think it justifies them being big dogs like this. Take Troy
