USC -14. They seem to be really hitting their groove, and coming off a bye. Short rest for Cal coming off a double OT win at home against Oregon makes this an auto play for me. Purdue +14. A hold your nose sort of play. This is a classic classic letdown spot for Penn State. They are coming off the biggest win of the James Franklin era and have to go on the road for an early kickoff against a conference doormat. Purdue actually played with a pulse last weekend against Nebraska, and like them getting two TDs at home. UVA +27.5. I continue to back the Hoos and it may drive me to drink. Everyone and their mother will be on Lville after they drilled NC State, but 4 TDs on the road is a lot of points. NC State -14 (hook). I subscribe strongly to the theory that teams usually aren't as bad or as good as the week before. Boston College is bad, their offense has no rhythm, and they had their chance against Syracuse off a bye and still looked terrible. NC State was in a hellacious spot last week coming off a crushing loss to Clemson then going on the road against the 2nd best team in the conference. They will look a lot better this week, and a ton of value taking them off that beatdown. Ole Miss +2.5. I know this will be wildly unpopular here, but give me the Rebels at home. Back to back road games against Arkansas and LSU where they lost both. Auburn coming off a monster thrashing of Arkansas, but what have they done on the road? Beat Mississippi State? They've had the perk of playing 6/7 games at home this year. Ole Miss has looked like a different team at home, and I would back them getting points. Their offense can still score in droves. Tulane -1. I don't know anything about them. This is a pure fade of SMU coming off Chad's biggest win of his coaching career and having to go on the road. Wisconsin -7. They've proven me wrong. I backed Iowa last week and got burned. I would be shocked if the betting public isn't backing the undefeated Huskers here, which at a touchdown makes the Badgers an auto play for me. Missouri -4. Missouri just lost to Middle Tenn State at home and they are catching points? Like feels dirty. Kentucky is coming off a last second 50 yard field goal win at home. Have to think the public will be all over the Cats here. Michigan -21. This is as square as it gets, but this is a huge revenge spot for Harbaugh. MSU knocked the Wolverines out of the playoff race last year with that last second muffed punt return. Spartans are in freefall and don't have any talent that can match up with Harbaugh's team.
