Redemption! We survived the huge spreads and actually came out 4-2 in week 5. I LOVE the board this week. I love it so much that it just might be a 6-0 week. Imagine that…well, here goes.
Overall 11-13, Jerry’s Jewel 1-3, Rip of the Week 1-3
Jerry’s Jewel 💎
Oklahoma @ Kansas
I’m good at picking the winner in games with huge spreads right?? Let’s try it again. I happened to watch the entire Kansas v TCU game last weekend and Kansas is soooo bad. Not sure which is worse, their defense or offense. Either way, OU will absolutely destroy the Jayhawks.
The Pick: Oklahoma -31.5
Utah State @ LSU
Another one. Utah State has a future NFL QB and they are a solid football team. LSU has a couple guys dinged up and I think they’ll hold them out of this one in preparation for Florida next week. This is an 11am game, the Tiger faithful wont have enough time to get loose.
The Pick: Utah State +27.5
Air Force @ Navy
What we have here is a game between two service academies. Since 2010, in games that involve 2 service academies, the under is 22-4-1. That’s astounding.
The Pick: Under 45
Auburn @ Florida
There’s a theme developing here. Auburn and Florida both have very good defenses and they both have inexperienced QBs. Each offense will want to run the ball and control the clock.
The Pick: Under 48.5
Iowa @ Michigan
I actually like the Wolverines this week. The public has been down on Michigan since they pulled out a close one vs Army. Iowa has a good defense but I just don’t think they have a very well-rounded team. So again, I like Michigan here but, I like the under even more.
The Pick: Under 47.5
Tulsa @ SMU
Life after death! SMU is ranked for the first time since the death penalty. Shane Buechele has been pretty darn good, which is not surprising because he was narrowly beaten out for the QB job at Texas by Sam Ehlinger. More importantly, SMU is 5-0 ATS this season. Let’s make it 6-0.
The Pick: SMU -13.5
The Rip of the Week
I saw opportunity for dogs in 3 games this week and went back and forth trying to decide which one to take a rip on. I like Cincinnati as a home dog on Friday night vs UCF. I also like Arizona as a road dog @ Colorado because I think Tate and JJ Taylor will be back. That being said, the one I decided on was Boston College as a road dog at Louisville. I just have a feeling here. I love dogs in morning games and I think Louisville will have a tough time stopping AJ Dillon.
The Rip: Boston College money line +175
If you roll all 7 of these picks up in a parlay and bet $20 on it you would win $2685.
