Last week I was 6-7 when picking the spread and 11-2 when picking the winners, failing to correctly pick Clemson and Western Kentucky. This week should be a little clearer, I hope.
11:00 a.m. CT
Miami (OH) 10 at Kentucky 24
Line: UK -13.5
Both teams are coming off pretty embarrassing defeats, but UK has more talent and plays at home, Go Blue.
Florida 20 at Miami (FL) 23
Line: UF -2
The Hurricanes impressed me more in Week 1 and this just seems like their time. I can’t trust the Gator offense a lick.
Western Kentucky 27 at Tennessee 31
Line: UT -13.5
UT looked good last week but they were still only playing Austin Peay. I think they get a scare here from the Hilltoppers.
Toledo 17 at Missouri 42
Line: UM -10
The Tigers didn’t play great competition last week but they still looked very fluid on offense and James Franklin should play huge.
Alcorn State 3 at Mississippi State 35
Line: MSU -42.5
Dan Mullen’s teams always beat up on their FCS opponents
before they play real teams and this should be no different.
South Carolina 28 at Georgia 27
Line: UGA -6
Aaron Murray needs to beat USC like Peyton Manning needed to beat Florida. Unfortunately for Murray I think history repeats itself and he goes 0-4.
Samford 10 at Arkansas 41
Line: Arkansas -32.5
The new system looked good last weekend and expect the Pigs to jump to 2-0 in the new era.
UAB 0 at LSU 34
Line: LSU -33.5
UAB is just overmatched here and I don’t see a dropoff from the TCU game.
Southeast Missouri State 7 at Ole Miss 52
Line: UM -49
This one won’t be close, but 49 is a massive line.
Sam Houston State 17 at Texas A&M 63
Line: TAM -45
Love him or hate him (and you probably hate him), Johnny Football can play and you can bet he won’t let up against Sam Houston.
Arkansas State 20 at Auburn 35
Line: AU -6
This line is just disturbing if you’re a Tiger fan.
Austin Peay 3 at Vanderbilt 49
Line: VU -46.5
The Commodores will rebound, no doubt about that. You’ll just have to feel sorry for the Generals as it is a rough stretch against the big boys.
