SEC
Georgia +2 over Auburn
Auburn blew out Georgia earlier this year. Auburn off big win over Alabama and are a little banged up. Georgia out for revenge.

Big 10
Ohio State -5.5 over Wisconsin
Toughest game by far for Wisconsin. Badgers undefeated but have not been tested. Ohio State won two years ago in this game 59-0. Ohio State still believes they can make the playoff if everything falls right.

New England -8.5 over Buffalo
Bills won last week but over struggling Chiefs. New England is 19-8 vs the spread last 27 weeks. New England has won and covered their last three trips to Orchard Park.

Detroit slight lean +3 over Baltimore
Detroit little longer rest because they played Thanksgiving. Lions were dominated by Minnesota. Stafford slightly banged up. Baltimore 6-13-1 ATS vs non-division opponents.

Panel

Our Man in Stripes
Steelers -4.5 over Cincinnati
Steelers are 16-3-2 against the spread in Cincy. Steelers dominated first meeting outgaining Cincy 420-179. Pittsburgh still holding onto number 1 seed and have New England close behind. Steelers need to keep winning.

Mono
UCF -7 over Memphis
UCF played Memphis earlier this year and gained over 600 yards of offense. Memphis can’t stop UCF. Expect a better defensive effort from UCF after last week when USF made them look bad.

Slick
Atlanta -3 over Minnesota
Think Vikings are due for a loss. Just like last week when I predicted that New Orleans would lose their winning streak. Atlanta plays

well at home. Falcons have turned things around winning three straight. Falcons need this game more.

Brutal
Florida Atlantic -11 over North Texas

FAU won their earlier meeting 69-31. In that game they gained a conference record 804 yards. Lane Kiffin has his team on a roll. He needs a win and then wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves for a Power 5 job. FAU is 7-2 as a favorite this year. Jump on the Lane train.

Bob
USC -4 over Stanford
USC won by 18 earlier this year. They had the yardage edge by 280 yards. Stanford beat Notre Dame

last week but ND had the edge in yards 425-328. Bryce Love is banged up and that hurts Stanfo

rd big time. USC is coming off the bye. Sam Darnold h

ad a good game last time against Stanford going 21 of 26 for 316 yards and four touchdowns. USC rolls!!!
