Best Bets this Weekend: 10-21/10-22
West Virginia -9.5 vs Baylor: What a fall from grace for Baylor. Seems like just yesterday that they were competing for National Titles with RG3 and crew. They won’t win a game in the Big 12 this year, and West Virginia needs to keep this positive momentum going after last week’s big win vs. Texas Tech.
Army -6.5 vs Temple: I like this Army team, used them a few weeks back. They were having trouble covering the spread earlier this season but now have covered 2 of the last 3. Temple is so so, but I expect Army to run all over them in this one.
Arizona -3 vs.Cal: Khalil Tate, remember the name. The dual threat QB has become and absolute MONSTER since coming in a few games back. The Cats have been a different team since then, and are a deserving road favorite vs. a Cal team that spanked Wazzu last weekend.
Syracuse +17 vs Miami, Fl: I know, I know Syracuse is due for a let down after beating Clemson, but I have a feeling that this Miami team isn’t as good as their undefeated record indicates. I think the Orange keep this one respectable. Not calling for another upset, mind you, but it won’t be a blowout either.
Dallas -6 vs San Francisco: Zeke is back, for now, and Dallas is coming off the bye week. Weird season for the Niners, who are the first team in NFL history to lose 5 straight games by 3 points or less. They won’t cover here.
Green Bay +4 vs New Orleans: This line is probably right without Aaron Rodgers, but Green Bay has been running this system for so long that Hundley, while obviously not Rodgers, should suffice against the Saints D. Taking a flyer on the money line as well on this one.
OVER 56 Atlanta/New England: The Super Bowl rematch will be fun, but these don’t look like the same two teams that met up in February. The Pats defense is pretty awful,while the Falcons blew a 17-0 lead against the Jay Cutler lead Dolphins last week. I just see a ton of scoring here, with no clue who wins.
