USC-UCLA Over 71
Josh Rosen vs Sam Darnold. UCLA 5-5 coming off a come from behind win over Arizona State. USC’s last regular season game before the Pac-12 title game. Slight lean to USC but the over is the better play.
Michigan +7.5 over Wisconsin
Senior Day in Madison. Both teams sport great defenses. The pressure of being undefeated is starting to weigh on the Badgers. Low scoring defensive game, we’d take the points.
Buffalo +4 over Chargers
Rivers a question mark at QB. Not sure what Peterson will bring. Tough game to bet right now. Chargers have no home field advantage. Bills mafia could take over the stadium. We’d lean to take the Bills and the points.
Oakland +7 over NE
Game in Mexico City. Raiders played here last year. Raiders should be able to keep it close on neutral site.
Our Man in Stripes
Lions -3 over Bears
Matt Stafford should pick apart the Bears secondary. The Bears offensive line and QB situation is a disaster. Lions win by double digits.
Washington Redskins +7.5 over New Orleans
Kirk Cousins could have a big day against the New Orleans secondary. Saints come in a big win streak and blowout of Bills. Very important must win for Redskins. Go with the team that needs the game more and getting over a touchdown.
Raiders +7 over New England
AFC West starting to get wide open. Raiders can see they still might have a chance at the playoffs. Win here would be huge. Raiders fired up at a place they played at last year and beat the Texans. Oakland exposes a bad New England defense. Pats defense looked good against a poor Denver offense. Different this week vs Raiders.
West Virginia -3 over Texas
Texas missing their best corner vs good passing game in WV. Love Grier and WV at home. Texas’ five wins have all come vs average at best opponents. Senior Day and WV hates the Big 12 for not allowing them to play any night games. They take out on the Big 12’s signature program in Texas. WV still could make the Big 12 championship game.
Minnesota Gophers +7.5 over Northwestern
Gophers are 5-5 and need one more win to make a bowl game. With Wisconsin on deck this is their best chance. Minnesota playing their best football of the year last week by beating Nebraska 54-21. Demry Croft running the offense better. Gophers had 409 yards rushing vs Nebraska.
