Texas/Oklahoma, Texas +3.5
Oklahoma is winning but continuing to have close calls. Red River Showdown is the best place to take this L. The ground game is rather weak, and Rattler doesn’t provide the same ground game as Hurts and Murray did. They also haven’t really had to fight yet. Texas could take a quick lead and we’ll see if Oklahoma has the ability to turn it on. Texas on the other hand has found a good fit at QB for the team and Bijan Robinson is the best running back and while Oklahoma has a “good” run defense on paper they are yet to play anybody with a decent run game. Let alone one of the best in the country.
I see a low scoring game with Texas maybe even coming out on top. Take the 3.5 points.
The Georgia Over reigns supreme. I thought Arkansas would do something more last week, but the defense was just overall too smothering. No defense is going to hold Georgia to less than 30 points the rest of the year if I had to guess, if that. This game is a little different however, Auburn had a battle of a win last week against LSU and looked like they were getting lucky almost throughout. This game won’t be in Athens, GA with that brutal crowd that we saw cause 3 false starts and an illegal snap very early in the game. Auburn won’t get shut out at home, count em’ for a minimum 14 points whether Bo Nix starts and finishes the game or not.
If the game ends 35-14 you hit your over, expect Georgia to score a lot and Auburn to score enough.
Michigan/Nebraska, Michigan -3.5
I’m sorry, maybe it’s because I am a Michigan fan. Maybe, its because I hate Nebraska. Maybe, it’s because I don’t make these lines but are the Wolverines not going to shred Nebraska by more than 4 points? I get that there may be a hangover situation occurring because the Wisconsin win was so important for the goals and rest of the season for this team. But in my eyes, Michigan is 4-1 against the spread, 5-0 overall going into Nebraska who is 3-3 overall, and the 3 teams they have victories over have 6 wins combined. Nebraska has an average run defense and Michigan’s run game continues to excel while still gathering over 100 yards against Wisconsin’s defense which is definitely not bad. (Wisconsin’s Offense is Horrid, Terrible, Awful, other adjectives that resemble bad *cough cough bet the under over there*) But if you’re looking at this game and wondering why it’s so close, I couldn’t tell ya.
Bonus: Notre Dame -1.5, Illinois +10, BYU -5, UVA +2.5, SMU -13.5, Buffalo +5.5
