UNC/Duke Over 62 (win)
Perfect football weather today! UNC is stacked on offense and QB Sam Howell should be able to find his receivers in perfect conditions today. Duke is a team that has moved the ball well, but there has been no team that has shot themselves in the foot with turnovers like they have. The good news the Blue Devils get is UNC is not a team that typically turns teams over. Duke has really not shown their true potential this year and against this defense they should put up a lot of points. This should be a fun game to start off the college football day. Take the Over.

Oklahoma State -12.5 over Kansas State (loss)
Kansas State has been hit hard by the injury bug. This team just can’t move the ball without QB Skylar Thompson in the lineup. This slow pace offense has zero room for error and if it gets behind just can’t make a comeback. Oklahoma State should push the tempo and put up a lot of points with all the weapons they have. The Oklahoma State Defense should also create turnovers against the banged up Wildcats Offense which will only lead to more points. Spencer Sanders and Chubba Hubbard should have big days today for the Cowboys. Take Oklahoma State.

Western Kentucky +6.5 over Florida Atlantic (win)
Western Kentucky is a frustrating team to watch because they have a transfer QB in Tyrell Pigrome who came over from a big time school. Pigrome should be running all over the competition, but he has looked poor so far this year. This team is playing in their 8th game compared to the Owls in their just 3rd because of Covid. Looking back we see WKU actually played a pretty tough schedule and are just have way more game action at this point of the season. Florida Atlantic is also not a great offensive team so I don’t see this game getting out of hand. The points in this game have really good value in what should be a fast moving clock type of game with a lot of running. Take Western Kentucky.

Notre Dame +6 over Clemson (win)
Wagering against the best team in the country isn’t smart, but this team has looked vulnerable at times this year and without Trevor Lawrence they are still good, but not great. Notre Dame is a tough place to play and their defense should be able to confuse freshman QB DJ Uiagelelei playing in his first road game ever. I think you are asking a lot for a guy who never played college football on the road to not make mistakes in a four quarter game to a big time program and not only win the game, but win by a touchdown. Notre Dame should force turnovers and Ian Book should lead them to scoring drives. The Take Notre Dame.

Tennessee -1 over Arkansas (loss)
The Vols had a week off to try to get focused. This was a team that won a lot of games to end last year and then the wheels fell off after a 2-0 start this year. The good news is they are playing a team that didn’t win a conference game in 2018 or 2019. The two wins the Razorbacks have this year are against two bad football teams. This Arkansas team is still in a transition year under their first year staff. Feleipe Franks is a big upgrade for them and they do have talent, but the Vols are a better team on both sides of the ball and have the talent and experience edge across the board. Jarrett Guarantano just needs to hand the ball off and not try to do too much. This Arkansas Defense isn’t the likes of Georgia, Kentucky or Alabama. Tennessee will look frustrating and will do silly things, but has the talent to beat a less talented football team and will be focused and hungry after a three game skid. Take the Vols.
