Sept. 03 2022 PICKS!
UGA -16 over Oregon
The defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs won’t get to open up between the hedges at Sanford Stadium, but they won’t be too far away when they travel to Atlanta to face the Oregon Ducks in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Does anything really think the Ducks win this game? Is there even going to be a PAC 12 once USC and UCLA bail? SEC vs. PAC clown show.
Nevada +1 over Texas State
Give me some RENO Wolfpack at home.
Utah -2.5 over FL
UF is in a state of transition as Billy Napier tries to return the program to prominence after taking over for Dan Mullen. His savior is supposedly QB Antony Richardson who only threw 64 passes for just 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions last year. Yeah, right.
Utah returns eight starters on offense, including quarterback Cameron Rising, who’s offense dropped 45 points on Ohio State.
The Utes ran 69 plays on average on offense each game. They boast one of the nation’s best running games led by Tavion Thomas who scored 21 TDs last year.
Defensively, Utah is just better than Florida. It’s a mismatch on more than just paper. Gators get blown out.
MS. State -16 over Memphis
Mississippi State returns in my view the second best quarterback in the SEC and eight other starters on offense.
The Bulldogs are a scoring machine. Cow Bells ring like crazy in Starkville!
Boise State +2.5 over Oregon State
The Broncos haven’t had a losing season since 1997. Think about that!
Oregon State’s inability to stop the run on defense should eventually hurt them. Give me the little dog here.
Ohio State -16 over Notre Dame
Can someone tell me why Notre Dame is ranked 5th in the nation? Seriously? All woke stuff is the only explanation.
Ohio State at the Horseshoe with 100,000 fans. The Buckeyes are the best team in the nation. Sorry Nick.
Coach Ryan Day’s squad returns one of the most prolific offenses in the country led by Heisman frontrunner QB CJ Stroud.
Now throw in one of the nation’s most dynamic talented running backs in TreVeyon Henderson who will rush behind a beast of an experienced offensive line.
FSU +3.5 over LSU
Brian Kelly this, Brian Kelly that, Brian Kelly is the man, hype, blah blah blah.
Florida State already played a game in Week 0, defeating Duquesne, 47-7. Bring the chain out. FSU goes to Baton Rouge and wins this game outright.
Arkansas -6 over Cincinnati
The Razorbacks are led by a top 10 rushing attack nationally and a dual-threat quarterback in KJ Jefferson. Arkansas will be tough to deal with up front offensively.
Cincinnati lost 12 draft picks to the NFL last year and won’t have quarterback Desmond Ridder who departed for the NFL – it’s smoke and mirrors time for the Bearcats.
The Razorbacks will win this game in the trenches, and do so rather easily. They have a huge physical advantage that they should take advantage of throughout the game. Only five starters return on defense for the Bearcats, and the secondary has a lot of questions with all the turnover.
Ole Miss -21 over Troy
The Trojans play in the Sun Belt Conference, while the Rebels play in the SEC. Need I say more? Lane Kiflin loves to run up the score and bask in media glow!
Houston -4.5 over UTSA
The Houston Cougars go on the road to open their season against the UTSA Roadrunners. They are loaded with skill players. Get ready for the Big 12.
Southern Miss +3.5 over Liberty
Southern Miss wins this game outright. Liberty lost Malik Willis to my Titans. It’s a Hattiesburg party!
NC STATE -12 over East Carolina
This is one of best teams in ACC and it’s a trap to take the points. You’ll hear all the Pirates fans telling anyone who will listen this is their biggest game of the year! Ok. So what? They are not a very good football team. ECU is a baseball school. This game has rout written all over it.
Appalachian State -2.5 over North Carolina
The Mountaineers finished last season 10-4, their fifth 10-win season in the last seven years, under three head coaches. They are a solid program they won six bowl games in six consecutive years until last year when they lost to WKU.
App State is also very good at beating Power 5 opponents. They are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games against Power 5 teams.
The Tar Heels are in a for a very long season.
