Behind Enemy Lines In College Football

Yo this is Nicky and we’re ready to step into the fray that is college football for the first time in the season. We gave one back last Sunday as the Chargers got a late field goal to beat the Eagles, but we were begging anyway as we would have needed a first drive td to cover our spread and Philly didn’t seem to sniff the end zone all day so that wouldn’t have happened. So, let’s get into the mix on Saturday and get it back. On Saturday I like two games, which also make a great 7-point teaser if you want to put them together. In the morning games I like Michigan State (+6.5 buy it if you don’t get it) to hang tough with Notre Dame. We’re to the point of the season where the numbers start to matter and the Spartans dominate almost every category except for passing yards per game, and their defense doesn’t give up much per game. For you quants, Michigan State is 6-2 it’s last 8 at South Bend and 5-1 it’s last 6 on the road. Conversely, the Irish are 1-5 ATS their last 5 games so I’m feeling Evergreen. That’s the early morning chowda’ back with the late games in a little bit. Catch more picks on the main site here, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Stanford is 5-0 in its last five games, also 5-0 at home. Now they do struggle against Arizona State 1-3-1 ATS their last 5, but have covered as a top 10 school. This one will be close but don’t look for a ton of field goals in this game and one score could be the cover. If you think Stanford will win the game then you gotta’ lay that lumber. That’s the afternoon chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
