College Football Week 5


College Football Week 5


Week 4 Summary:


Premium Play Summary: 5-1 (+ 6 units)

This is why they pay me the big bucks. 6 unit Saturdays (Working on trademarking that). Florida State delivers on the unbiased 3 unit play. I just had this slate sniffed out. Wazzou is back to being my boys. Can’t get enough of them. RIP The Pirate.


Leans: 4-2-1 (1 unit)


Premium Play Overall Record: 19-8

Leans Overall Record: 9-8-1

Combined Overall Record: 28-16-1


Week 4 Highlights:

That push is really going to piss me off typing it out every week. Florida State national title is back on. Cam Ward is really good. Buckeyes and ND are both fugazis. Thank god we don’t have to talk about Colorado again.


Week 5 Premium Plays:


Kentucky ML (2 units): Give me Devin Leary and Mark Stoops at home. Graham Mertz is going to be befuddled by that Stoops defense. Kentucky hasn’t played anyone but top to bottom I trust their roster at home compared to an unproven Billy Napier and Florida roster. Trevin Wallace, standout LB for the Wildcats is going to wreak havoc in the Florida backfield. The man has 3.5 sacks and a handful of TFL’s heading in to the game. I am expecting that number to be 5 by the end of this one. Prime time Wisconsin Money Mertz coming out for this one. Let him cook. Wildcats pounce on the Gators 31-20. Rawr.


Oklahoma -20 (2 units): My only concern with this pick is Oklahoma may be peaking ahead to a duel with Texas next week. HOWEVER, no team knows how to run up the score on a cupcake quite like the Oklahoma Sooners. It was a Lincoln Riley specialty and now seems to have transcended to Venables. Sooners offense is electric and is being challenged by an Iowa State defense that is still searching for an identity. Iowa State allowed Brian Ferentz to hang 20 and perhaps in even more grotesque fashion allowed Oklahoma State to put up…. Checks notes… 2-7 points. Bah Gawd. Matt Campbell was the hottest name in College Football to fill a prominent coaching roll 3 years ago and now would be lucky to land a job as a PE teacher at the local elementary school…. Campbell fits that part. Guy looks like a freak. Sooners kick the chair out from under Campbell. 66-10.


Michigan -17 (2 units): Michigan leaves the Big House for the first time this season and travels to Lincoln to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Similar to Illinois, I will take any chance Vegas gives me to fade Nebraska. However, this isn’t your Grandma’s Nebraska. We have a new face under center for Matt Rhule. Exit Jeff Sims….Enter Heinrich Haarberg. The 6’5” 215 pound sophomore hailing from Kearney, NE (was expecting Henrich to be from the Arian Nation) will take the field Saturday on the heels of a 8/17 for 107 yard performance against Louisiana Tech. His performance was so bad we got to see Chubba Purdy, brother of Mr. Irrelevant himself, take the field for a few plays before Rhule realized the colossal mistake he had made. Michigan has played inferior opponents but allowed, 7 points, 6 points, 7 points, and 3 points. You think Heil Heinrich is moving the ball against the Wolverines? 41-6 dogwalk.


West Virginia +14 (2 unit): Another joke line for WVU. Hand up, I didn’t watch their game last week with their QB play in question but they rolled so who cares. TCU got embarrassed by C*lorado in their only game against a relatively notable opponent. After last week that may be giving the team in Boulder too much credit. I am not saying the Mountaineers are giant slayers but they beat a competent Texas Tech team last week and handled a Pitt team who came in to the season fluffed by hype (turns out Pitt sucks). This line just makes no sense and I wouldn’t be surprised to see WVU win outright here. I guess I project TCU to win because they are 14 point favorites? 27-21? Idk but WVU covers 14. Talked myself in to making this a 2 unit play as I wrote that. Contemplating 3….


Brigham Young University ML (1 unit): Friday night in Provo doesn’t get any crazier than this. The Cougars look to wage a crusade against the infidels from Cincinnati. Heathens, adulterers, perverts, degenerates, and bearcats alike will pass by their Lebron Cavaliers jersey, reach past their Joe Mixon jersey, and pull out their black and red Desmond Ridder jersey to relive the glory days and unfortunately watch the Mormons dry hump the Bearcats into submission. Mormons soak in Provo tonight. 27-24.


Leans (0.5 units each):


Tulane -21.5: The Green Wave has their QB back. Pratt shook off the cobwebs in last weeks drumming of Nichols State. I think they lay it on a bad UAB team.


Kansas +17: I just think Kansas keeps it between the number. Top 25 conference matchup. Jalon Daniels and the Jayhawks have absolutely nothing to lose. I think they cover 17 in a 38-28 matchup.


Georgia State ML: The train that keeps on rolling. Georgia State has been underdogs in their last two contests and won both outright en route to a 4-0 start for the program that hasn’t been in existence for longer than a cup of coffee. Troy is no slouch but turnovers have snake bitten the Trojans in the past. GSU 27-24.


South Carolina +12: Rumors of Milton being banged up carry over to a this week 5 matchup. I do not believe in Tennessee or Joe Milton. I am not calling for a SCar outright win but I do think they keep it between the number.

 

Love the slate.


Sincerely,



William Tickets
