Against the Spread: Week 8

Last Week: 2-1
Overall: 20-16-3

LSU Tigers +6 @ Auburn Tigers
I love Cam Newton as much as the next guy but he hasn't seen a defense quite like LSU's yet and last time I checked he doesn't play defense.  Look for this game to come down to a field goal.

Oklahoma Sooners -3 @ Missouri Tigers
Thanks to San Diego State's epic choke job against Missouri this line is about 7 points lower than it should be.  The Sooners are going to make like Ben Roethlisberger and take Missouri into the bathroom stall for 60 minutes of "alone time."

San Diego State Aztecs -24 @ New Mexico Lobos
Breaking News: New Mexico is turrible and Mike Locksley is a knucklehead.  (Charles Barkley voice)

 


Navy Midshipmen +7 vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame has historically struggled with triple-option attacks and I don't see them being any different under Brian Kelly.

Wisconsin Badgers +7* @ Iowa Hawkeyes
Sure Wisconsin is due for a letdown game after "Busting a Nut" last weekend, but they won't lose by more than a touchdown.

Texas Tech Red Raiders -2.5 @ Colorado Buffaloes
For this game I will use comparative analysis, because that is fail-safe (sarcasm alert):

Tech beats Baylor by 7 at a neutral site.
Baylor beats CU by 6 in Boulder.
Therefore, Tech beats CU by at least 3 in Boulder.

 

*This line is currently at 6.5, but I say buy the half-point if you can, if you can't stay away.
