I can’t believe this is the last weekend of college football. After Saturday it’s just bowl games and the playoff. Still, much Football left to wet the beak on so we should get after it while we can. This week’s picks were pretty hard for me to make, Vegas seems pretty on point with the spreads this week, nevertheless, A-Train has seen his sheet and made his predictions. Let’s see if we can stay hot. Here we go…
Big 12 Championship, Dallas: TCU vs Oklahoma: Right now Oklahoma is a 7 point favorite over the Horned Frogs. That line feels like a solid push to me but I do think TCU could win the game outright. If it jumps even a half point I’d be all over TCU. As of right now, I think we are going to take them to cover and hope it’s a close game.
SEC Championship, Atlanta: Georgia vs Auburn: I think the play here is to fade the public and take Georgia +2.5. It’s hard to beat a team twice in one season especially if the first time you beat them you were at home. I just don’t know how many of these big games Auburn will be able to pull off in a row. I think Georgia comes back with a better game plan and wins the rematch.
Big 10 Championship, Indianapolis: Ohio St. vs Wisconsin: I have no idea how this game will play out because I have no idea if Wisconsin is good. I know exactly how good Ohio St. is, they are pretty good. I also HATE Ohio St. I think they are corrupt as hell, the selection committee ALWAYS gives them the benefit of the doubt. (and why not the OSU athletic director is on the committee) The LAST thing I want to see is this 2-loss bullshit Ohio State team in the playoff. That being said this just feels like Ohio St. is going to win. But do they win by more than 6.5? Probably…Gross, I think I want to take the Buckeyes in a game I hope I lose.
ACC Championship, Charlotte: Miami vs Clemson: I’m pretty sure that Clemson is going to win this game. They have been here the last two seasons, they are hot, Miami is coming off of a loss. The Spread is Clemson -9.5, do they win by that much? Extremely hard to say, that’s a solid line by Vegas. I’m just gonna say that they do. This is a coin flip. I’d be ok putting Clemson money line in any parlays if that’s your thing.
Pac-12 Championship, Santa Clara: Standford vs USC: I have sucked picking the PAC-12 in games all season. I have doubled sucked when USC is involved. So I don’t feel great picking this game. I’m gonna go with USC to cover -3.5. If somehow this went to 3, I would feel much better about it.
American Athletic Conference Championship: Memphis vs UCF: Not a lot to say here, except that we are going to roll the dice on the UCF team to cover 7. This is another game this is probably a push at 7 but we are going to take the action.
throw in a non-championship game: UL Monroe +27.5 @ FSU: On principle, we like UL Monroe to cover the 27.5 points FSU is laying.
These are the picks -Atrain out.
