Florida Atlantic Owls @ Florida Gators (Fla -31) - Gators can pour it on when they are facing a weak opponent and FAU is one of the worst programs this year.

North Carolina Tarheels @ Virginia Tech Hokies (UNC -6.5) - UNC has won their last 9 straight games by at least 7 points. UNC covers the points.

Purdue Boilermakers @ Iowa Hawkeyes (Iowa -21) - Purdue plays decent on the road usually losing by less than 17points. Iowa beat one divisional opponent by more than 14 points. Purdue with the points.

Michigan Wolverines @ Penn State Nittany Lions (Mich -4) - Michigan is not the same team they were 4 weeks back. They win but Penn State keeps it within 4.

Memphis Tigers @ Temple Owls (Mem -1.5) - Temple is falling apart down the stretch. Memphis wins and covers. Memphis lost to a red hot Navy team and a great Houston offense.

Chattanooga Mocs @ Florida State Seminoles (No line)

Wake Forest Demon Deacons @ Clemson Tigers (Clem -29) - This is going to be close, i'm banking on back to back tough matchups against top teams weighing on Wake Forest as Clemson wins just barely over 29 and covers.

UCLA Bruins @ Utah Utes (Utah -2.5) - Utah started strong then stumbled, as of late they are figuring it out more than UCLA

LSU Tigers @ Ole Miss Rebels (Miss -4.5) - Tigers bounce back after a rough two weeks and beat the Rebels off the bye.

Northwestern Wildcats @ Wisconsin Badgers (Wis -11) - Wisconsin wins but they aren't crushing teams. Their last 5 games have been Maryland, Rutgers, Illinois and Purdue. Up against a ranked opponent, they win by 7, take Wildcats with the points.

Houston Rockets @ UConn Huskies (No Line)

Michigan State Spartans @ Ohio State Buckeyes (OSU -13) - This line really surprises me. Buckeyes win but the Spartans secondary keep it close. Michigan state with the points.

Charleston Southern Buccaneers @ Alabama Crimson Tide (No line)

Mississippi State Bulldogs @ Arkansas Razorbacks (Ark -3.5) - I'm not going to lie, this game has trap written on it, I think the Bulldogs come out and give it to the Razorbacks but I can't turn against the great play of Arkansas so I'll take the Razorbacks to cover the points.

Navy Midshipmen @ Tulsa Golden Hurricane (Navy -12) - Navy will cover just because they can't be stopped right now. With that said Keyarris Garrett is an amazing receiver for the Golden Hurricanes and can be a threat to keep this within 12.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma State Cowboys (Even) - Baylor comes out hungry and SHOULD win but the Cowboys are finding ways to win and at home in a big match they do it again. Credit Mason Rudolph for leading this team to wins.

Boston College Eagles @ Notre Dame Fighting Irish (ND -16.5) - The Eagles had a great defense earlier this year but struggled lately with two consecutive 16 point loses. Notre Dame is looking great right now. Even in an anemic game last week they still win by 21. They win and cover the 16 points.

TCU Horned Frogs @ Oklahoma Sooners (Even) - TCU is falling apart literally. With player injuries and the team struggling - Oklahoma wins.

California Golden Bears @ Stanford Cardinal (Stan -11) - Stanford is very up and down. At home against Cal they will win but not by 11, take Golden Bears with the points behind a few long passes by Jared Goff who is 6th in the league in yards right now. He's not necessarily winning but he's keeping them competitive.

NFL Thursday Night Game

Tennessee Titans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Jax -2.5)
Straight: Titans win as Mariota has learned and is playing very well each week. Jacksonville is getting good but the Titans lately have been doing very well.
Spread: Titans with the points
