My free College Football winner for Saturday is on Wisconsin over Purdue, as I love the road underdog to get the money.
Wisconsin rolls in to this one in unfamiliar territory, having been eliminated from the West Division title chase, so one has to wonder how the Badgers respond at this point in the season.
The good thing to know heading into this contest, however, is the last time Wisconsin lost a Big Ten Conference football game at Purdue was 1997. That's seven straight win at Ross-Ade Stadium. Plus, the Badgers have won 12 straight in this series.
Now you're telling me I get to take points in this one?
Purdue's 90th-ranked defense will struggle to stop Wisconsin tailback Jonathan Taylor, who has run for at least 1,500 yards in his freshman and sophomore seasons, then 1,977 a year ago and 1,548 so far this season. The Boilermakers allow 144.8 yards per game - 46th in the nation - and I wouldn't be surprised to see Taylor run for that much on his own.
The Boilermakers' 122nd-ranked passing defense that allows 281.8 yards per game opens the door for Wisconsin's offense to flourish. The Badgers don't have the strongest passing game, but they can be effective in key spot once the sixth-best rushing game takes over.
Wisconsin has the 14th-best red zone offense in the land, while it has the 34th-best defense overall. And when the Badgers stifle Purdue, they'll put their offensive counterparts in great scoring positions throughout the game.
The Badgers have the 25th-best scoring defense that allows 21.0 points per game, so look for them to salvage their season by winning their final road game to prepare for their home finale next week against Minnesota in the battle for the Axe.
Massachusetts at GEORGIA (-41)
By Tommy Brunson, Featured Handicapper
50 Dime Winner # 5 in a Row - Memphis-SMU to go Over went belly up in the very first quarter. Way off, not even close. Bad call on my part that is for sure.
Ready to crank it back up for the Saturday card with a game I love.
Big time winner for late Saturday afternoon coming down the pike.
BIGGEST COLLEGE PLAY OF THE YEAR
Top-Rated 100 Dime Winner # 10 of 15 - ACC Game of the Year is what I have on line.
It will be Virginia at Georgia Tech at 3:30 pm eastern time today.
Over the past 30 days, my $10 players have netted $8,500.
Time to add more!
Comp play release for Saturday on Georgia minus the redwood tree over Massachusetts.
The fact UGa is laying over 40 points assure UMass of being in this game for a spell, but in reality, the final score could very well be 58-7 in favor of the host Bulldogs.
The 'Dawgs are in a "holding pattern" until they face Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, as they have a date with Georgia Tech up next. Again, no worries laying this wood, as Georgia has won and cover 3 in a row now since their lone loss at LSU, and Kirby Smart has Georgia at 17-8 overall their last 25 versus the number.
Expect to see a little more of highly-touted quarterback Justin Fields in this game, and expect Fields to use this opportunity to showcase his goods.
As for UMass, the Minutemen simply do not have the talent or the depth to mount any kind of a threat either straight up or against the spread. This will be a nice paycheck for the University, but that's about it as the UMass season will conclude today. Massachusetts stands at just 4-8 against the spread their last dozen games played.
I am sure a lot of folks will line up for a play on Massachusetts, as they may be of the opinion that Georgia will be working past UMass as they get ready for Georgia Tech's triple-option next week, but I am not one of them!
Just a matter of time before this big number gets covered, as Georgia will not allow more than a touchdown at home today to Massachusetts.
58-7 final here.
Utah State (-28') at COLORADO STATE
By Gus Augustine, Featured Handicapper
Let me make this clear, I am winning this game today!
BIGGEST RELEASE SINCE SITE DEBUT
1st Ever Top Rated Bankroll Builder Game of the Year - Michigan State-Nebraska.
Back-to-back winning night on the hardwood, and now it is time to UP THE ANTE.
Time to GO FOR THE JUGULAR!
Time to push the chips to ALL IN!
Today's winner is TWICE AS STRONG as last night's 50 Dime Winner - Miss State beating down Long Beach State by 28 points.
Today's winner is TWICE AS STRONG as Thursday's 50 Dime Winner - Davidson covering by the hook over Wichita State.
There are no more words to waste, just a winner to give you!
They have just one straight up blemish on their season schedule, and they have just one against the spread blemish on their season schedule so far. Those numbers won't take a hit today when Utah State at 9-1 straight up, and at 8-1-1 against the spread will once rack up a big number and allow a small number as they win and cover in Fort Collins against the Colorado State Rams.
After a little life shown in the middle of their season - 2 straight wins and covers - the Rams are closing with a whimper, losers of 3 in a row both straight up and against the spread.
Utah State lost this meeting last year in Logan, 24-17, but that was last year, and this year Matt Wells' team is just destroying teams, their last 3 wins this year by 42, 41 and 42 points! You talk about "the love", Aggies sophomore quarterback Jordan Love has amassed nearly 2,700 yards through the air with 24 TD passes and only 4 interceptions. Since the Rams just allowed over 500 yards of offense in their loss to Nevada last week, I do not think Colorado State will be able to stop this game from turning into a landslide. Lest you think Utah State will "ease up" trying to cover this impost, consider that they have covered in 10 of their last 12 when facing teams with a losing record.
The Aggies have a big game to close the regular season next week on the blue carpet in Boise, but that will not stop them from taking this one by 5 touchdowns.
Comp play on Utah State.
5* UTAH STATE
Syracuse (+10) vs. NOTRE DAME - at Bronx, NY
By Ray Chadwick, Featured Handicapper
Cannot seem to find a winner right now.
Just need one to get me started.
50 Dime Double-Wager Winner # 4 of 6 - Big 10 Rivalry Lock is going out on Northwestern at Minnesota at noon eastern.
Time for a winner.
Comp play for Saturday on Syracuse plus the points against Notre Dame in this afternoon affair from Yankee Stadium.
You talk about a big game, who could have foreseen how big this Orange-Irish battle would have been before the year started?!!?
Dino Babers has his team playing the best football in years, and they would like nothing better than to knock the undefeated Fighting Irish from the playoff perch they currently reside on. Babers has a proven track record when listed as the underdog, as Syracuse is 9-2 against the spread their last 11 when getting points, so Notre Dame best beware!
Syracuse is fresh off their 4th straight win, and their 3rd straight cover after shredding Louisville 54-23 at the Carrier Dome. Now they make the short trip down to the Bronx to face a Notre Dame team that is currently on a 1-2-1 spread dip over the last 4 wins, as the oddsmakers have made it tough to be a Notre Dame back down the stretch. Not only that, but when favored by more than 7-points, Brian Kelly's team is just 1-6-1 against the spread.
Last week, starting QB Ian Book sat out of Notre Dame's 42-13 win over Florida State with bruised ribs, and former starter Brandon Wimbush engineered that blowout, but remember Syracuse also beat the Seminoles 30-7 earlier this year. Book is expect to be back for today's tilt, and while Our Lady may be able to keep their unbeaten season afloat, but this one could very well come down to a game winning field goal.
I am taking Syracuse plus the points at the Big Ballpark in the Bronx.
