College Football Picks ATS: Week 1

It’s that time of year when we can all thank the good lord ESPN will stop playing cornhole  and we can get back to what truly unites the American people……smash mouth college football. In this utopia it’s socially acceptable to drink beer at 9 am, wear the same clothes and scream at your tv in order to alter the game and when you can stop losing money betting baseball. Yes sir, football is back and with it will come my weekly picks.

Below are my three LOCKS of the week.

Indiana vs Ohio State -Over 57

Ohio State has something to prove this year and I believe will they play for the national championship. Before we start talking national championships we need to start with game one.  Look for the first quarter to be close and a little slow since Indiana is going to try to run. However, after couple three and outs , Ohio State will force Indiana to throw. I really like a high scoring affair for this Thursday night kickoff game with a rowdy drunk student section.

LSU vs BYU: LSU -16.5

I was either too bored, drunk, or stupid to realize that last Saturday I actually wasted hours of my life watching BYU play Portland State. BYU looked terrible. Coach O and the tigers by 1,000,000

Michigan State Vs Bowling Green: Under 57.5

Both teams were under roughly 60% of the time last year. I don’t see that changing.

Degenerate picks:

Teaser Florida +10 and FSU +13

You want my opinion. Stay away from the big name games until we see how terrible everyone really is. But, if you want my advice on what I would do….. Tease Florida and Florida State together, this will at least give you a fighting chance and keep the game interesting for longer. All of these teams are good. Take the points.

NC State -5

Rain will effect this game. NC State has a lot more horses in the stable than SC and has top 5 front seven on defense. If it is a running game, Pack wins.
