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

Mono
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.

Slick
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.

Brutal
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.

Bob
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.

GOOD LUCK!
