CFB is back and so am I. Let’s go!
8/28- Nebraska -6.5 (-114) at Illinois
Nebraska played their worst game of the year in 2020 vs the Illini and haven’t forgotten. I think Scott Frost is coaching for his job week 1 while Bilema has some time to instill his culture. Corn win 34-20.
9/3- North Carolina -5.5 (-110) at Virginia Tech
I am fading Fuente and the Hokies in 2021 and it starts week 1 with a formidable opponent in the Mac Brown led UNC Tar Heels. Although I think the home environment will play a factor and this game will be close early, I also think UNC just has too much talent and too much to prove to keep this thing close for long. Carolina has a far better coach and QB so I will swallow the 5.5 in Blacksburg. 31-20 Heels.
9/4- Indiana at Iowa -2.5 (-125)
Indiana is being overhyped after a year in which they greatly overachieved and I am below market on Hoosiers QB Michael Pennix. I think Iowa runs the ball effectively and doesn’t turn it over. 27-21 Iowa.
9/4- UL Lafayette at Texas -7.5 (-113)
Back at it with my Texas love. Although I understand the respect for UL Laf and coach Billy Napier, I think Sark wins with a more talented team at home week 1 after seeing Iowa State mishandle this game last year. I have seen this number come down since it was posted and 7.5 is too low. 33-23 Texas.
9/4- Georgia +160 vs Clemson
Really excited about this game. I think JT Daniels outplays DJU in an evenly matched neutral site game. +160 seems like a good deal to me. 31-27 Dawgs.
