Rotation #309
Duke -1 over Syracuse (win)
Duke is a desperate football team at 0-4.  They have played a pretty tough schedule so today they get a team in their range of talent.  Cuse has not played in two weeks so they could be a little rusty coming out the gates.  This is a team that has an awful offensive line and I never trust QB Tommy DeVito to light up the scoreboard.  David Cutcliffe is a veteran coach that has to take advantage of the new coordinator Syracuse brings to the table.  This Duke staff has the clear coaching advantage so their is no excuse for them to lose this game.  Chase Brice is getting better each week at QB and the Blue Devils should be able to move the ball against this defense.  Cuse might be missing Andre Cisco which would be a huge advantage for us today.  Take Duke.

Rotation #325-326
Texas Tech/Iowa State Under 64.5 (win)
The status of Alan Bowman is unknown.  I would be shocked if he played because he took a nasty hit last week.  This is a Tech team that no longer uses the quick strike air raid offense.   I believe Iowa State can keep this team in check.  The Cyclones have a young offensive line so the Tech Defense really could use a game in which they get after the QB and get some confidence for this defensive unit.  I just think this line is based on a lot of past history and I don’t think the offenses will be able to do enough to make this a really high scoring game.  Take the Under.

Rotation #339-340
Texas State/Troy Over 58.5 (loss)
These teams put up a ton of points in their meeting last year and both are running a fast pace offense which is good for points.  Both teams have a ton of returning offensive talent, but also lost a lot of talent on the defensive end.  This is especially true for Texas State.   The winner of this game could get to 50 points themselves tonight.  Look for a high scoring game with the skill players dominating the opposing defense.  Take the Over.

Rotation #317
Miami +15 over Clemson (loss)
The one cool thing about College Football this year is the gap narrows with less fans and home field advantage.  I just don’t think there are many spots that you should play big favorites.  Miami has been red hot with D’Eriq King at QB.  There is nothing worse than a duel threat QB that can pick up a first down with his arm or feet.  Clemson is still a powerhouse, but this year none of them are elite.  There was a lot of turnover last year in talent.  Miami has all the offensive pieces and the offensive line able to match Clemson on the scoreboard.  I think this spread is very generous.  Take Miami.
