LAST WEEK:1-4 (20%) 😐 CAREER:10-9-1 (52%)
Last week was a disaster. I experienced my first losing week and it was painful, ugly, and humbling. Although my record looks a whole lot uglier, spirits are good and my attention is turned to week 5.
Week 5 CFB
9/27 8EST #12 Penn State @ Maryland (+7)
I don’t care about my dismal record on Friday games, I love Maryland at home coming off of the BYE after a tough road loss to Temple. I still don’t love Penn State this year and believe Maryland has a good chance to win this game outright.
Maryland 38 Penn State 33
9/28 noonEST BYU (-2.5) @ Toledo
Im back on the BYU wagon and it feels good. I know a lot of the sharps out there like Toledo as a home dog but I believe this is a very tough BYU team that has been getting overlooked week after week. Although last weeks blowout loss to Washington took some wind out of the Cougs’ sails, I think they get back on track Saturday in Ohio.
BYU 28 Toledo 18
9/28 7EST #24 Kansas State (+4) @ Oklahoma State
I don’t hate the Pokes, I just happen to be betting against them consecutively. This is going to be one of the most exciting games of the week in Stillwater and I am just taking the team getting points. I do admire what Chris Klieman has done with this Wildcats squad and Ok St is coming off a tough road loss to Texas.
Kansas State 25 Oklahoma State 24
9/28 7:30EST #5 Ohio State @ Nebraska (+17.5)
So far this year betting against the Buckeyes seems like giving away money. I think the Cornhuskers can get some stops early and keep the game close going into halftime. With the margin being as big as it is, I couldn’t help myself. Although the Huskers have been disappointing so far this year, College Gameday is in Lincoln and Scott Frost has a lot to prove in a big spot.
Ohio State 41 Nebraska 28
9/28 10EST Washington State @ #19 Utah (-5)
Back to the well with the Utes…last week at the Coliseum was a disaster. Utah thoroughly outplayed USC but the lack of Red Zone execution cost them an undefeated season thus far tallied with a Pac 12 blemish. Wazzou on the other hand gave up one of the biggest comebacks in CFB history to UCLA in a game where 130 points were scored. I am not at all off of the Utah train and believe this is a beautiful clean up spot for the Utes at home.
Utah 35 Washington State 24
Extra games to keep an eye out for:
Iowa St @ Baylor, USC @ Washington, MSST @ Auburn, UVA @ ND
