Our Man in Stripes
Miami +10 over Carolina
Carolina is 1-4 against the spread the last four weeks. They were lucky to cover last week against Atlanta. Miami has had 5 games decided by 6 points or less. Carolina averaging only 16 points a game at home. Miami is a desperate team. Jay Cutler is getting healthier. Too many points
West Virginia +2.5 over Kansas State
Love the West Virginia offense with Will Grier and David Sills. Sills leads college football in TD receptions. He’s the kid Lane Kiffin gave a scholarship to when he was in middle school. Kansas State only 2-6 as a home favorite. The Kansas State offense is not nearly as explosive as West Virginia’s.
Atlanta -3 over Dallas
The Atlanta defense has been playing better recently. They should be able to keep Dak and company in check. The Falcons outgained the Panthers last week but lost a game they should have won. I expect Julio Jones and M. Sanu to go off at home.
Boston College +3 over NC State
BC has won three in a row and has scored for a change. The Eagles have scored 45,41 and 35 against Louisville, Virginia and Florida State. I see NC State due for a letdown. They got blown out by Notre Dame and then lost an emotional game to Clemson. Love the home dog playing their best football of the year.
Chargers +4 over Jacksonville
Chargers are coming off of a bye. They usually play close games. They’ve lost 10 games the last three years by a field goal or less. Chargers defensive coordinator is Gus Bradley, the former Jaguars coach. I feel he still has a good handle on his old team. Doug Marone coaches conservatively and tends to keep games close. The Bengals game last week was much closer than the final score would indicate.
