    UCF wins14th straight, routs UConn
    August 30, 2018



    EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) No. 21 UCF has a new coaching staff - and an offense that looks very similar to the one that helped the Knights go undefeated season a year ago.


    McKenzie Milton threw for 346 yards and tied a career high with five touchdowns as the self-proclaimed defending national champions routed UConn 56-17 on Thursday night to extend the longest winning streak in the nation to 14 games.


    The reigning American Athletic Conference offensive player of the year completed 24 of 32 passes and ran for another 50 yards on seven carries. Sophomore receiver Tre Nixon, a transfer from Mississippi, caught five passes for 101 yards and scored on plays of 34 and 11 yards.


    Backup quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. came on in the fourth quarter and broke a 70-yard touchdown run down the left sideline, making him the team's leading rusher.


    It was the first game for coach Josh Heupel, who took the reins after Scott Frost left for Nebraska.


    ''I don't know if we're going to miss a beat,'' Milton said. ''The schematics are a little different, but we're going to score a lot of points no matter what.''


    UConn quarterback David Pindell was a bright spot for the Huskies, throwing for 266 yards and a touchdown and running for another 157 yards and a score.


    But the Huskies had 30 freshmen and sophomores on their two-deep, and more than a dozen players saw their first live-game action on Thursday night.


    ''I thought we had some young men who played a bit tentative for their first time and just didn't let it go,'' coach Randy Edsall said. ''Now they understand how hard it is''


    THE TAKEAWAY


    UCF: Heupel's fast-paced offense is as advertised, putting up 652 yards and scoring eight touchdowns on 11 drives, with each scoring drive taking less than 3 minutes off the clock.


    ''I'm a big fan of coach Huep's system,'' Milton said. ''I think it exposes defenses and I think it's going to be very good for UCF.''


    UConn: The Huskies seem to have found their quarterback in Pindell. In addition to completing 27 of 41 passes and running 22 times, he had another 50-yard touchdown run called back because of a holding penalty. The Huskies put up 486 yards of offense.


    ''We made some big plays on offense and we pushed the ball a lot,'' Pindell said. ''We just have to execute in the red zone and the tight red. That's the biggest thing.''


    INJURY


    The game was marred by what appeared to be a serious injury to UCF defensive back Aaron Robinson on the opening kickoff.


    The sophomore transfer from Alabama appeared to collide head-first with another UCF player while making the tackle. He had to be cut from his shoulder and was taken off the field on a stretcher, giving the crowd the thumbs-up sign as he was wheeled to an ambulance. Heupel said Robinson is expected to be fine, but will be kept overnight at a local hospital for observation.


    EFFICIENCY


    UCF was 9 of 11 on third down and converted its only attempt on fourth down. The Knights had touchdown drives of 61, 81, 76, 74, 65, 73, and two of 90 yards all while having the ball for less than 22 minutes


    FIRST GAME


    Heupel said he felt surprisingly calm in his first game as a head coach. The team gave him a game ball in the locker room.


    ''You work for eight months for something and you want it to bear good fruit and tonight it did,'' he said.


    POLL IMPLICATIONS


    Despite opening with a conference win on the road, UCF's poll position likely will only be impacted by losses higher up in the rankings.


    UP NEXT:


    UCF: The Knights head back to Orlando for their home opener next Saturday against South Carolina State.


    UConn: The Huskies face another ranked team when they travel to Idaho to take on No. 22 Boise State on the blue turf.

    Minnesota routs New Mexico St. 48-10
    August 30, 2018



    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Zack Annexstad was less than one quarter into his debut for Minnesota when he lost a fumble deep in his own territory.


    The brief sideline conversation afterward assured coach P.J. Fleck yet again that the true freshman walk-on quarterback has the confidence for the job.


    ''He puts his hand on my shoulder and says, `I think we're going to be all right,''' Fleck said. ''Usually it's me telling people, `Hey, you're going to be OK.' That's his personality. It's different, and I like it.''


    Annexstad threw two touchdown passes to Tyler Johnson, and Minnesota opened the season by overwhelming New Mexico State in a 48-10 victory on Thursday.


    Antoine Winfield Jr. pitched in the first punt return for a score by the Gophers in five years, a 76-yard zigzag through an Aggies coverage unit that missed six tackles during the play. Winfield, a third-year sophomore safety, had the third of four straight touchdowns for Minnesota in the second quarter.


    ''He's one of our best defensive players, but now when you look at him you're sitting there going, `OK, what else could we do with this guy on offense?''' said Fleck, who ordered the punt returner experiment with Winfield in spring practice.


    Backup wide receiver Seth Green scored twice on direct snaps inside the 10-yard line, a clever twist from offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca that punctuated a 522-yard performance by the Gophers. Green is also the third-string quarterback.


    ''He's so big. He's so strong. He's so athletic,'' Fleck said.


    Rodney Smith rushed 24 times for 153 yards, lightening the load on Annexstad in just the second time in major college football history that a true freshman walk-on quarterback started a season opener.


    According to Minnesota's research, Baker Mayfield was the only other one for Texas Tech in 2013. The last true freshman quarterback to start a season for the Gophers was Tim Salem in 1980. Adam Weber, the program's all-time leading passer, was a redshirt freshman when he took over the job in 2007.


    Annexstad completed 16 of 33 passes for 220 yards and no interceptions, before yielding to backup Tanner Morgan midway through the fourth quarter. After the botched shotgun snap that was recovered by Aggies linebacker Terrill Hanks at the 12-yard line, Matt Romero connected with Izaiah Lottie two plays later for the tying touchdown. Dylan Brown kicked a 45-yard field goal on the next drive to give New Mexico State a short-lived lead, before Annexstad and Smith took the Gophers 75 yards in seven plays on the ensuing possession.


    ''We got in a groove,'' Smith said. ''The offensive line picked up a little bit, and I'm proud of those guys up front.''


    HANG ON


    Romero finished 29 of 58 for 233 yards passing and one interception, a diving catch by linebacker Thomas Barber after one of several mishandled balls by Aggies receivers. Romero, a junior college transfer, made his debut on Saturday during a 29-7 defeat by Wyoming in an unusually early start to the schedule.


    ''Really, he was sharp tonight,'' Aggies coach Doug Martin said. ''We had 15 dropped passes, so that's hard to overcome for any quarterback. He didn't get much help, but had we caught those balls, I mean, he was looking at a 400-yard passing night.''


    THE TAKEAWAY


    New Mexico State: The Aggies capped 2017 with the program's first bowl game win since 1960, but they're the only FBS team to start 2018 without its leading passer, rusher, receiver and tackler from the previous season. The Aggies have allowed an astounding 607 rushing yards over their first two games, a sure sign that this will be a rebuilding project in Martin's sixth season. Their net rushing total on offense, too, is just 29 yards.


    Minnesota: Annexstad will face much more daunting defenses this season, but this was exactly the way the Gophers needed their rookie quarterback to start. Demry Croft, who transferred to Tennessee State, totaled 262 passing yards over the final four games last season, and the Gophers didn't have a touchdown pass over the last five games. Annexstad had two of them before halftime.


    ''I just went up to him and told him, `Keep balling. This is only a start,''' said Johnson, who had five catches for 100 yards.


    UP NEXT


    New Mexico State visits Utah State on Sept. 8, a rematch of the Arizona Bowl game from last season. The Aggies are playing an independent schedule after a four-year appearance in the Sun Belt Conference ended.


    Minnesota hosts Fresno State on Sept. 8, a game that ought to give the Gophers a truer nonconference test. The Bulldogs finished 10-4 last season, reaching the Mountain West Conference championship game and beating Houston in the Hawaii Bowl. Fresno State opens with Idaho on Saturday.

    Wake Forest survives to beat Tulane 23-17 in OT
    August 30, 2018



    NEW ORLEANS (AP) Wake Forest freshman Sam Hartman passed for 378 yards and two touchdowns in his collegiate debut, Cade Carney powered in for a short TD in overtime, and the Demon Deacons defeated Tulane 23-17 on Thursday night.


    ''Sam was so poised,'' Carney said. ''Of course, he made some rookie mistakes, like you do, but the way he played overall - super proud of him.


    ''They were going to dare him to throw the ball, and he threw some dimes.''


    Jonathan Banks connected with Terren Encalade for touchdown passes of 52 and 74 yards for Tulane, which had the ball on the edge of game-winning field goal range in the last minute of regulation before stalling after a false-start penalty.


    Tulane's Peter Woullard was flagged for a personal foul when the Green Wave began overtime with the ball. Tulane turned the ball over on downs soon after, setting up Wake Forest's winning score.


    ''This one stings, no doubt about it. But it's the first of a 12-game season,'' third-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz said. ''We had some momentum going in the second half, but we shot ourselves in the foot with a couple of penalties. You saw a lot of first-game mistakes by both squads. Unfortunately, they made one more play than us.''


    Alex Bachman caught both of Hartman's first two touchdown passes, which went for 10 and 19 yards. Sage Surrratt had 11 catches for 150 yards and Greg Dortch caught 12 passes for 149 yards.


    Hartman was starting the opener because projected starter Kendall Hinton was suspended three games for an unspecified violation of team rules. The Demon Deacons also had their starting tight end sent off the field within the first five minutes of the game when his hit to the head of Tulane returner Jacob Robertson was ruled a targeting foul.


    Hartman wound up with a promising performance in a victory, but it was by no means mistake free. He finished 31 of 51 and threw two interceptions, the second of which could have cost Wake Forest the game.


    The Demon Deacons were threatening to take a two-score lead when Hartman attempted a desperate, underhanded pass in an effort to avoid being sacked by Tulane's Tirise Barge. The ball went straight to linebacker Larry Graham for an interception.


    Banks scrambled twice for first downs during the game-tying drive, once up the middle for 17 yards on third-and-5 and later scrambling 15 yards on fourth-and-11 from the Wake Forest 37.


    That set up Merek Glover's career-long 39-yard field goal to tie it at 17 with 3:53 left.


    Banks finished 18 of 37 for 281 yards, but constantly found himself spinning and scrambling away from pressure. He was sacked three times and often had to throw the ball away. Even his first TD pass to Encalade came after he was forced to scramble to his right and lofted a deep ball down the sideline.


    The Green Wave repeatedly squandered good field position, punting seven times from Wake Forest's side of midfield. Tulane never ran a play from inside the Wake Forest 22.

    THE TAKEAWAY



    Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons saw that Hartman can play well with protection and could become a prolific passer. Yet, as expected with young players, he struggled to maintain composure and made some regrettable decisions when defenders were able to get pressure in the backfield.


    Tulane: The Green Wave can be encouraged by its ability to compete in the American Athletic Conference and vie for a bowl bid after taking a power-conference team to overtime in its opener. But Tulane will be disappointed it squandered chances to take a statement victory.


    UP NEXT


    Wake Forest: Hosts Towson of the second-tier FCS in its home opener on Sept. 8.


    Tulane: Hosts FCS program Nicholls State on Sept. 8.

    Larkin helps Northwestern extend streak with win at Purdue
    August 30, 2018



    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Jeremy Larkin ran for a career-high 143 yards and scored two touchdowns in his first game as Northwestern's feature back and the Wildcats' sealed Thursday night's 31-27 victory at Purdue by running off the final 7 minutes, 57 seconds.


    Northwestern won its ninth straight overall and ninth straight in Big Ten play - matching the school's longest streak since the 1995 Rose Bowl season. The Wildcats still have the longest active streak among Power Five teams, too.


    Purdue's three-game winning streak ended with its third opening-day loss in four years.


    This one spoiled a record-breaking night for freshman receiver Rondale Moore, who had 313 all-purpose yards to break Otis Armstrong's school record of 312 in 1972. Moore had 302 yards including a 32-yard TD catch and a 76-yard run for Purdue in the first half of his college debut.


    The Wildcats started fast and closed it out with a first down on a personal foul call against Lorenzo Neal with 2:31 left and the Boilermakers out of timeouts.


    Larkin spent last season backing up Justin Jackson, the school's career rushing leader, but proved he could be a workhorse. Larkin carried 26 times and produced his second career 100-yard game.


    The game also marked the return of Thorson, just about nine months after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.


    It was a wild first half.


    Northwestern took a 14-0 lead with a 1-yard TD run from Larkin and a 2-yard run from John Moten IV on its first two possessions. And after breaking a 14-14 tie with Charlie Kuhbander's 34-yard field goal, it converted two of Elijah Sindelar's three interceptions into scores.


    Quarterback TJ Green capped the first one with 1-yard TD plunge and Larkin scored on a 4-yard run with 37 seconds left in the half to give Northwestern a 31-17 lead.


    But after D.J. Knox broke off a 45-yard run on Purdue's first play of the third quarter, things slowed. Knox capped the drive with a 2-yard TD run, and Spencer Evans made a 27-yard field goal to make it 31-27 just 4 seconds into the fourth quarter to close out the scoring.

    THE TAKEAWAY



    Northwestern: The Wildcats needed a change after slow starts the past two seasons. The win could help them emerge as a contender in the Big Ten West.


    Purdue: The Boilermakers made too many mistakes in the first half and failed to finish with the flurry they needed. Sindelar was benched after his third pick and a home loss certainly won't help their momentum.


    UP NEXT


    Northwestern: Faces Duke in its home opener on Sept. 8.


    Purdue: Hosts Eastern Michigan on Sept. 8.

    Friday's Best Bet
    August 30, 2018

    College Football Best Bet – Friday Action


    As anticipation grows for the first full week of college football action to get going tonight, I'm shifting my focus to Friday's action as there are a few more games to break down. Three programs starting the year ranked in the Top 25 are double-digit home chalk on Friday evening (Michigan State, Wisconsin, Stanford), and we even get to see one of the first solid in-state rivalry games between Colorado State and Colorado.


    These games serve as a great weekend appetizer for the first full slate of Saturday games, but there is one contest that sticks out to me in particular, so let's get right to the breakdown.


    Odds: Utah State vs #11 Michigan State (-23.5); Total set at 50.5


    Michigan State is always a program that has lofty expectations coming into a new campaign, and with the #11 rank entering the year, expectations are even a little higher than they have been the past few years. Finishing off 2017 with a 10-3 SU record sparked those lofty expectations for 2018, and a favorable conference schedule in a loaded Big 10 East division (the Spartans host Michigan and Ohio State this year) does make the path to a potential College Football Playoff appearance a little “easier” for Michigan State.


    It's not going to be easy by any means with Penn State, Michigan, and Ohio State as division rivals, but it's always better to have the majority of your toughest games at home.


    Oddsmakers expect Michigan State's first contest of 2018 to end up being as easy win though as they are laying about three TD's and a FG against a Utah State team that is hoping for an improvement themselves. The Aggies went 6-7 SU last year after losing in OT in their Bowl game, but starting out on the road in Big 10 country is nothing new to them after last year began with a road trip to Wisconsin. That game didn't turn out well for Utah State (59-10 loss), but with nine returning starters on offense – including the majority of them being juniors or seniors – this is a team that could end up making a lot of noise in the Mountain West Conference.


    Utah State wants to make some noise right from the get-go though and they did see some very early initial support here when the line opened up around -25 back in late July. But given how badly there defense was shredded against Wisconsin a year ago – and Michigan State's attack is cut from a similar cloth – taking the points with the Aggies is not something I'm looking to do here. Instead, I'm looking at this total and see a number that's probably a little too low and too heavily based on reputation more than anything.


    Michigan State has always been a solid defense squad under Mark Dantonio and it's that reputation that has this number still sitting below a key number of 51. Betting percentage numbers at VegasInsider.com currently show nearly 80% of the action coming in on the 'under' based off Michigan State's defensive reputation, but even with all that action, the number has barely moved.


    Yes, it's flipped around 49 through as high as 52 in recent weeks, but it's held steady for the majority of this week and that's when the bulk of the action has come in. Majority 'unders' are bets I always look to run away from because it's such a difference from the norm (typically the majority of action comes in on favorites and 'overs') and this contest seems to fit right in line with that train of thought.


    Michigan State's massive improvement a year ago (were 3-9 SU in 2016) was due in large part to the play of QB Brian Lewerke taking that next step and becoming a bonafide weapon at this level. Teams could stack the box to solely focus on RB LJ Scott anymore (who is back for his senior season in 2018) and Lewerke too full advantage of those 'soft' looks in the passing game. The Spartans actually ranked 35th in the country in points per possession last year, so maybe it's time we start to think of this team as a more offensive-minded one that can slug it out defensively in Big 10 play when they need to.


    The Spartans aren't going to need that defense to be lights out against Utah State this week, as they'll look to put the game in Lewerke and the offense's hands early and then basically cruise to the finish line after a double-digit lead's been established. Considering Wisconsin hung nearly 60 points on this Utah State defense a year ago, there's no reason to think Michigan State can't threaten the 40-point number.


    Which leaves us with the Aggies needing to pull their weight only to the tune of about 10-14 points here and that should be easily attainable as well. Michigan State isn't out to put their best defensive looks out on film in Game 1 for rivals to study if they don't have too, so a soft shell defensive scheme should suffice enough for the Spartans to get the win.


    That means that garbage time scores by Utah State are always a possibility, and it's not like they aren't capable of scoring in bunches as six of their 13 games a year ago saw the Aggies score 30+ points. Obviously those all came against much weaker competition than what Michigan State will bring, but we aren't asking Utah State to threaten 30 points here, two TD's and a FG will likely be more than enough to push this one 'over' the number.


    Finally, if this game does turn out to be a lot closer than expected, well then, Utah State is likely having a strong offensive day and putting up even more than 14-17 points. Their defense is not going to be able to do anything but slow the Spartans down for the majority of this one, and you need both sides to play well defensively to cash any 'under' ticket. I don't believe the near 80% of bettors already on the 'under' in this game realize that, as they are confident in Michigan State's defense to not allow more than 10 points.


    Yet, a 42-10 game in favor of Sparty could just as easily happen if that's the case, and we don't have to look any further than the 59-10 drubbing Wisconsin put on this Aggies team a year ago. That total closed at 52 as many followed a similar line of thought in thinking it would be an easy 'under' due to Wisconsin's superior defense, but the two teams simply needed to combine for five points in the final frame (Wisconsin ended up scoring 21) to cash that 'over' ticket. I see this year's trip to Big 10 country for Utah State playing out in a similar fashion as we get 55+ points scored.


    Best Bet: Over 50.5 points

    Total Talk - Week 1
    August 30, 2018
    By BetDSI



    CFB Week 1 Total Talk


    The excitement is palpable in the sports betting world with regular season football finally back in the mix and now that Week 1 of the college football season is here and lines on these games have been up for weeks, it never hurts to step back and take a full assessment of the betting board. And while many focus on the point spreads in that regard, it's often the totals – especially in college football – that see the most volatility each week in terms of movement.


    That definitely shows up in Week 1 given how long the lines have been posted, but each week you'll see CFB totals make significant moves the closer you get to kick-off.


    So with that in mind, let's take a look at some of the biggest movers in the totals for Saturday's full slate of CFB games , as there are some pretty significant moves to discuss.


    Odds per - BetDSI.eu


    Biggest Movers to the 'Over'


    Cincinnati vs UCLA: Open: 59 – Current: 64.5
    Louisville vs Alabama: Open: 55.5 – Current: 62.5



    Here we've got a couple of games featuring big name schools getting plenty of love for the high side, and while those opening numbers are from a few weeks back (August 13th), we've still seen the UCLA total move up from 61.5 to 64.5 and the Alabama total move from 59.5 to 62.5 this week alone. Those are some pretty significant jumps, especially when the betting percentage numbers offered currently at VegasInsider.com show only 65% and 52% 'over' action respectively.


    As intriguing as it may be to follow those moves, you've also got to keep in mind the possibility of these numbers being possible “set-ups” for more action right before kick-off. Wager limits tend to increase as the week goes on, so it doesn't take a lot of money bet early in the week to see a number make a significant jump.


    The Louisville/Alabama game comes to mind as a strong candidate for that possibility given that the Cardinals are moving on without QB Lamar Jackson this year and Alabama's defense is always one of the best in the country. Alabama rarely likes to run up scores against opponents in the 2nd half of blowouts, and the conservative approach they use to preserve health – ie run the ball into the ground to shorten the game – is something that's not exactly ideal for taking an 'over' on a number that may be at or near it's peak.


    So, of the two games, don't be surprised to see some buyback on the 'under' in that Alabama game, and if that's the side you're already leaning on, it's probably best to at least put some fractional number of your specific betting unit on the 'under' now. That's so if the number still continues to rise you can determine if you want to risk more, and if it drops, well you've already got some stake in the game at a solid number.


    Odds per - BetDSI.eu


    Biggest Movers to the 'Under'


    Texas vs Maryland: Open: 56.5 – Current: 53



    This is the only game really worth talking about here (although there are plenty others that have moved a full point or so) and it's not hard to see why the low side has been hit. Maryland's program has been under fire all off-season with the misconduct issues surrounding DJ Durkin, and it's hard to expect a team that's yet to name a starting QB for this game to really be confident and prepared in their attack.


    On the flip side, Texas HC Tom Herman recently had his name dragged through the mud this week in relation to his past employment at Ohio State and everything that's going on with that school. However, the Longhorns players should be ready to ride a strong defense to whatever success they achieve in the Big 12 this year.


    This move while seemingly large, really didn't pass through that many key numbers though (57 and 53 are important) as you can really only make an argument that 56/55.5 would have been the best of it for an 'under' play. The low side is getting about 65% of the action though and I believe some movement here has stopped because of Maryland's starting QB issue. In the end, it's probably best to sit back and see how both sides react and respond to whatever issues they've got surrounding the program, but if does drop even further, to below 51 say (another key number) it may be time to start looking the other way.

    Odds per - BetDSI.eu


    Best Total Bet for Week 1:


    Akron/Nebraska Over 54.5



    This is a game that should end up being an easy 1st win for new Nebraska HC Scott Frost as he tries to make his alma mater prominent in the world of collegiate football again. Frost comes over from a highly successful tenure as the head man at UCF and bettors should expect to see that uptempo, high-octane offensive mindset he had there transferred over to the Cornhuskers this year. Frost didn't necessarily recruit all the talent he's inherited, but it's not like he was getting 5-star recruits at UCF and look what he did there.


    UCF averaged 48.2 points per game last year and while it's going to be impossible to reach that number playing in the Big 10 this year for Frost, Nebraska's new-look attack under him should look tremendous against this Akron squad. The Zips gave up 28 points per game a year ago, but their worst defensive performance of the year came in Week 1 at a Big 10 school when they lost 52-0 to Penn State. That wouldn't be enough to cash here, but Nebraska still has their short comings and I don't expect the Zips to get blanked.


    Something like a 42-14 score sounds right about where this game should finish and it's my best total bet for the week.


    Best Bet YTD Record: 0-0

    Friday's Underdog Action
    August 31, 2018
    By YouWager.eu

    NCAAF Best Bet - San Diego State Aztecs @ Stanford Cardinal


    Every year in college football we see surprise results that essentially kill out betting slips and give a negative hit to the bankroll. When the same two teams meet the following season, it is easy to be a little gun shy about playing that game again.


    You believe that the favorite will find a way to exact revenge, but then you also think about the possibility of lightning striking twice. The Stanford Cardinal are starting the season with the #13 ranking and are probably hoping that number doesn’t prove to be unlucky. They will open their season on Friday night by welcoming in the San Diego State Aztecs, a team that beat them last season early in the year.


    There is a good bit of buzz surrounding the Cardinal heading into this season, but that could all disappear very quickly if they fall at the first hurdle to a team that hurt them last season.


    The Cardinal are in as a 13 point favorite for the season opener, with the point total set at 48 . As usual, YouWager.eu has all the betting details and odds listed.


    What: San Diego State Aztecs at Stanford Cardinal
    When: Fri. Aug 31, 2018, 9:00 PM ET
    Where: Stanford Stadium, Stanford, CA
    YouWager Line: Stanford Cardinal -13 -110 | -525 | U 48 -110
    TV: FoxSport1

    Why bet on the San Diego State Aztecs


    When the Aztecs hosted Stanford last season, they opened as an 8 point underdog at home. San Diego State had built some momentum prior to that game, winning their opening two games, including a big one on the road versus Arizona State. They used that confidence to outduel the Cardinal to take a 20-17 win on their way to an impressive 10-3 season.


    The problem for the Aztecs this season is that the return game will come on the road in a stadium where Stanford simply don’t lose very often. That said, we should probably remember that San Diego State went 5-1 SU and ATS in road games last season, so this will by no means be a slam dunk for the home team. If we look beyond last season, the Aztecs have won 7 of their last 8 on the road.


    Why bet on the Stanford Cardinal


    The buzz surrounding the Cardinal heading into the new season is all about RB Bryce Love, a young man who will be on Heisman alert this season. He helped the Cardinal average over 200 YPG on the ground last season, but they fell short of that number in their game versus the Aztecs, rushing for 174 yards in that one.


    It was the passing game that hurt in that last meeting, with Stanford completing just 45% of their passes. That needs to change, not just in this game, for the Cardinal if they are to make a playoff push this season. The Cardinal went a perfect 6-0 in home games last season, covering the spread in 4 of those wins. You have to like them to win here, but is that the best bet to go with?

    Expert Pick and Series Prediction


    I think the Cardinal are going to win this one, but I am not totally sold on that spread. I think the Aztecs can keep this one a little closer, which is why my best for this game is to take the Aztecs to cover +13 .

    No. 11 Michigan State rallies to beat Utah State 38-31
    August 31, 2018



    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Connor Heyward scored his second touchdown with 2 minutes left to put No. 11 Michigan State ahead and the Spartans held on to beat Utah State 38-31 on Friday night.


    The Spartans trailed until the second quarter, built a 13-point lead late in the third and fell behind late in the opener for both teams.


    Darwin Thompson put the Aggies ahead with a 1-yard run, his second go-ahead score of the game, with 5:05 remaining. Their defense couldn't make one more stop to beat the highest-ranked team in school history, surpassing the victory over No. 18 BYU in 2014.


    Utah State did have one more chance to send the game to overtime - or possibly pull off the upset - but Joe Bachie tipped and intercepted a pass at midfield with 1:15 remaining.


    Michigan State's Brian Lewerke was 23 of 33 for 287 yards with two TDs, an interception and a fumble.


    Jordan Love completed 29 of 44 passes for 319 yards with two interceptions.


    Heyward scored on a 13-yard run in the fourth quarter and a 17-yard run in the third. He is the son of late NFL running back Craig ''Ironhead'' Heyward.


    NO. 4 WISCONSIN 34, WESTERN KENTUCKY 3


    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Jonathan Taylor had two long touchdown runs, Alex Hornibrook threw for 257 yards and two scores and Wisconsin beat Western Kentucky to open the season.


    A young defense working in seven new starters forced two turnovers inside Wisconsin's 5. A.J. Taylor paced the short-handed receiving corps with five catches for 85 yards, while Garrett Groshek turned a screen pass into a 43-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter for a 31-point lead.


    The Badgers finished with a flurry, scoring on five of six drives after punting on three of their first four possessions. Jonathan Taylor finished with 145 yards on 18 carries.


    Drew Eckels was 15 of 26 for 167 yards in his first career start for the Hilltoppers.


    NO. 13 STANFORD 31, SAN DIEGO STATE 10


    STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught three TD passes from K.J. Costello to overcome a slow night by Heisman Trophy runner-up Bryce Love and Stanford beat San Diego State.


    Love was held to 29 yards on 18 carries as the Aztecs focused their defense on stopping the man who led all Power 5 backs with 2,118 yards rushing last season.


    After a slow start in the opener for both teams, the Cardinal made San Diego State pay for that decision. Costello connected with Arcega-Whiteside on a 38-yard score in the second quarter and then on plays from 19 and 80 yards in the third quarter as the Aztecs defensive backs struggled to contend with Stanford's big receiver. Arcega-Whiteside finished with six catches for 226 yards.


    Costello added a 19-yard TD pass to Colby Parkinson in the fourth quarter to break open what had been a close game for more than a half. Costello finished 21 for 31 for 332 yards and four TDs.

    Saturday’s six-pack


    — Rams signed DT Aaron Donald to a contract extension with $87M guaranteed in it.


    — Nationals traded P Gio Gonzalez to Milwaukee; he has a 7.47 ERA in six August starts.


    — Texans released 7-time Pro Bowl punter Shane Lechler, who is 42 years old.


    — Chiefs traded OL Parker Ehinger to Dallas for CB Charvarius Ward; Cowboys have a need on the offensive line right now.


    — SF Giants dumped $1.2M in salary by dealing Andrew McCutchen to New York.


    — Blue Jays traded oft-injured 3B Josh Donaldson to Cleveland; he hasn’t played since May 28 (calf).

    Quote of the Day

    “I hope one of Jalen Ramsey’s coaches or teammates tells him that he is a player and not a broadcaster at this point in his career. He’s a great player. He needs to concentrate on his job and leave the analysis of other players to the media.”
    Tony Dungy

    Saturday’s quiz

    Who was the Chargers’ coach last time they finished 1st (or tied for 1st) in AFC West?

    Friday’s quiz

    Next week, Sam Darnold will become the youngest QB since 1970 to start a Week 1 game; Drew Bledsoe currently holds that record.


    Thursday’s quiz
    Wyoming is the least populated state in this country.




    ***********************



    Saturday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….



    13) According to the Sacramento Bee, a former top executive of the Sacramento Kings is suspected of siphoning off $13.4M from two of the team’s top sponsors and using the funds to buy beachfront property in Southern California.


    FBI and federal prosecutors are investigating Jeffrey R. David, 44, the former chief revenue officer for the Kings who currently holds the same job with the Miami Heat.


    12) There have been 81 walk-off homers in the major leagues this season, which is a new record.


    11) Florida Atlantic has a QB named Chris Robison, a 4-star recruit from Texas who originally signed with Oklahoma out of high school and enrolled in Norman in January 2017, He was arrested for public intoxication three months later and was later tossed in August 2017 for another unspecified violation.


    Now Robison is playing for Lane Kiffin at FAU; the Owls haven’t announced who the starting QB will be for their opener at Oklahoma, and most figure they’ll play more than one QB anyway, but has to be emotional for this kid to start his college career against the Sooners.


    10) Phillies lost a game 5-4 this week when they had the tying run on 2nd base with one out; batter hits a fly ball to center, the pinch-runner on second (pitcher Vince Velasquez) tags up and goes to third, but he left second too early and Washington appealed the play and the game ended. Not the ideal way to lose a game when you’re in a pennant race.


    9) A’s pitcher Trevor Cahill has started 17 games this year:
    — Home: eight starts, 0.85 ERA
    — Road: nine starts, 7.02 ERA


    8) Houston Astros finally gave manager AJ Hinch a contract extension, which he earned by winning the World Series last year.


    7) Giants dealt OF Andrew McCutchen to the Bronx for two prospects; does this mean Aaron Judge might not be ready for the playoffs?


    6) David Price got hit on his left (pitching) wrist by a 102 mph line drive Wednesday and left the game. Last thing the Red Sox (or anyone) needs right now is an injury to a pitcher.


    5) Albert Pujols had knee surgery, is done for this year. Shohei Ohtani will pitch for the Angels against Houston on the Sunday night ESPN game, his first start since June 6.


    4) Memo to TV people; don’t show roughing-the-passer penalties in slow motion. EVERY hit looks like roughing if you don’t show it at game speed.


    3) Royals traded 1B Lucas Duda to Atlanta; teams will equally divide the $600K Duda is due the rest of this season.


    2) LSU’s starting QB Joe Burrow is a transfer from Ohio State; he threw 11 passes LY as the Buckeyes’ 3rd-string QB. Two of the three guys he beat out for the starting job have already transferred out of Baton Rouge.


    Wonder how Bayou Bengal fans feel about Ohio State’s 3rd-string QB being their starter.


    1) NFL teams will cut their rosters down from 90 players to 53 this weekend; to lot of us, those are just names on a computer screen, but those are 1,184 young guys who are looking for a job- guys with families and friends. Much respect to anyone who even made it to a training camp.

    SEC Notebook - Week 1
    August 31, 2018
    By Brian Edwards



    **Ole Miss vs. Texas Tech**


    -- These teams will collide in Houston for this tone-setting season opener Saturday at noon Eastern on ESPN. As of Friday afternoon, most betting shops had Texas Tech installed as a 2.5-point favorite with a total of 67. The Rebels were +115 on the money line (risk $100 to win $115).


    -- Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is on the hot seat going into his sixth season at his alma mater, where he remains second in school history with 12,429 career passing yards. Kingsbury has generated plenty of offense, but the other side of the ball has been a nightmare. He has compiled a 30-33 overall record while limping to a 16-29 mark against Big 12 competition. Kingsbury has taken the Red Raiders to three bowl games, going 1-2 in those contests. He probably needs to go at least 7-5 during the regular season to be retained.


    -- Texas Tech won a 27-23 decision at Texas as an eight-point underdog in last year’s regular-season finale. The victory clinched a postseason bid and probably prevented Kingsbury from taking a pink slip. The Red Raiders allowed a fourth-quarter lead to get away, however, in a 38-34 loss to South Florida in the Birmingham Bowl.


    -- Texas Tech brings back six starters on offense and 10 on defense. The Red Raiders finished 2017 with a 6-7 straight-up record and a 6-6-1 against-the-spread ledger. They return their top eight tacklers (and 12 of their top 13) from a defense that gave up 32.2 points per game. That’s not great, but it was an immense improvement from the 41.3, 43.6 and 43.5 PPG given up from 2014-16. However, a pair of key secondary members are injured. Senior cornerback Octavius Morgan is ‘out’ with a knee injury, while senior safety Jah’Shawn Johnson is ‘questionable’ with a shoulder issue. Morgan recorded 41 tackles, eight passes broken up and one tackle for loss last season, while Johnson produced 97 tackles, five PBU and four TFL’s.

    -- Ole Miss is going to have an outstanding offense, but it might field the SEC’s worst defense in 2018. Matt Luke had the interim label removed after guiding the Rebels to an Egg Bowl win at Mississippi St. as 15-point road underdogs. The win over the Bulldogs, Ole Miss’s third in its final four games, allowed it to finish 6-6 SU and 5-7 ATS.


    -- Ole Miss returns eight starters on offense and seven on defense. The Rebels lost 28 lettermen, however. The offensive talent is still top notch despite the defections of several players, including former five-star recruits Shea Patterson (Michigan) and Van Jefferson (Florida). On Mel Kiper Jr.’s first Big Board for the 2019 NFL Draft that he released early this summer, junior WR A.J. Brown and junior OT Greg Little were listed at No. 4 and No. 6 in the first round, respectively.


    -- When Patterson went down with a season-ending knee injury vs. LSU last October, juco transfer QB Jordan Ta’amu took control of the offense. And he delivered. Ta’amu completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,682 yards with an 11/4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He found D.K. Metcalf for a TD pass with four second left to lift the Rebels to a 37-34 comeback win at Kentucky.


    -- Brown was a second-team All-American selection last season when he caught 75 balls for 1,252 yards and 11 TDs. Metcalf and DaMarkus Lodge combined for 80 catches and 14 TD grabs. All three WRs have bright futures in the NFL.


    -- In neutral-site season openers, Ole Miss won and covered vs. Boise St. in Atlanta in 2014, but it allowed a 22-point first-half lead to get away in a loss to FSU in Orlando back in 2016.


    -- For more of my thoughts on the 2018 Rebels, check out this link here.


    -- Kickoff is scheduled for noon Eastern on ESPN.


    **Central Michigan at Kentucky**


    -- As of Friday afternoon, most books had Kentucky listed as a 17-point home favorite with a total of 49. The Chippewas were +600 on the money line (risk $100 to win $600).


    -- Kentucky is going into its sixth season on Mark Stoops’s watch. He joins Vandy’s Derek Mason and LSU’s Ed Orgeron as the SEC coaches who are on the hot seat in 2018. Stoops has gone winless in back-to-back bowl-game appearances, including last year’s 24-23 loss to Northwestern when he decided to go for two (and failed) after scoring a potential game-tying TD with less than a minute left. He has a 26-36 overall record at UK, going 12-28 in SEC play.


    -- Kentucky finished ’17 with a 7-6 SU record and a 4-9 ATS mark. Three of the six defeats came by six combined points. There was zero excuse for not snapping the longest active losing streak in an FBS rivalry vs. Florida last year. The Gators scored twice on TD passes when UK literally didn’t have a defender lined up on the WR split out wide. The first was on a 4th-and-three play at midfield late in the second quarter. The second was UF’s game-winning TD pass in the final minute came on third and goal coming out of a bleeping timeout!


    -- Terry Wilson was named the starting QB for the Wildcats earlier this week. Wilson, who had a 26/11 TD-INT ratio playing juco ball last season, started his career at Oregon in ’16 before transferring.


    -- For more of my thoughts on UK, star RB Benny Snell and defense, check out this preview I wrote several weeks ago.


    -- Central Michigan won five consecutive games to close the regular season and clinch a bowl bid last year. The Chippewas finished 8-5 SU and 7-6 ATS after losing 37-14 to Wyoming at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. They bring back four starters on offense and six on defense.


    -- CMU owns an 11-4 spread record in its past 15 games as a road underdog. During John Bonamego’s tenure that’s beginning its fourth season, the Chippewas are 12-6 ATS in 18 road assignments.


    -- CMU is winless in eight games against SEC foes.


    -- ESPNU will have the telecast at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.


    **Washington vs. Auburn**


    -- As of Friday afternoon, most spots had Auburn installed as a 2.5-point favorite for this crucial showdown at the Mercedez-Benz Dome in Atlanta. The total was in the 48-49 range, while some shops had the Huskies at +110 or +115 to win outright.


    -- This venue wasn’t kind to Gus Malzahn’s troops last season. After winning the SEC West thanks to home wins over second-ranked Georgia and top-ranked Alabama during a three-week stretch, AU lost the rematch with UGA in the ATL at the SEC Championship Game by a 28-7 count. Then in the Peach Bowl, UCF closed out an undefeated campaign by besting the Tigers, 34-27, as a 10-point underdog.


    -- Auburn finished the year with a 10-4 SU record and a 5-7-2 ATS mark. There was no shame in the two other losses at (eventual CFP semifinalist) Clemson and at LSU in one-possession games. Actually, truth be told, there was certainly some discontent among the AU faithful when Malzahn’s squad allowed a double-digit second-half lead to get away in Baton Rouge. Nevertheless, he was awarded with a lucrative contract extension after his fifth season on the job.


    -- Auburn returns six starters on offense and seven on defense. The top-five WRs are back, but Will Hastings and Eli Stove are both injured and ‘out’ vs. UW (and for at least several more games). Ryan Davis is QB Jarrett Stidham’s favorite target. Davis enjoyed a breakout ’17 campaign, hauling in 84 receptions for 815 yards and five TDs. Stidham completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 3,158 yards with an 18/6 TD-INT ratio.


    -- Auburn has to replace workhorse RB Kerryon Johnson, who ran for 1,391 yards and 18 TDs with a 4.9 yards-per-carry average. Kam Martin will get more touches and be counted on to produce. The junior RB had 453 rushing yards and two TDs with a 6.1 YPC average last season.


    -- Auburn has lost five of eight games played on a neutral field during Malzahn’s tenure. The Tigers are 3-2 in school history in five games against Pac-12 foes


    -- Washington brings back eight starters on offense and nine on defense from a team that went 10-3 SU and 7-6 ATS. Chris Petersen, who has been in the top five of my Coaching Rankings for more than a decade, has got the Huskies rolling now. The former long-time HC at Boise St. took UW to the CFP in ’16 before losing 24-7 to eventual runner-up Alabama.


    -- All three of Washington’s L’s last year came in one-possession games (at Arizona St., at Stanford and vs. Penn St. in the Fiesta Bowl. Senior QB Jake Browning is second in school history in career passing yards (9,104) and is poised to break Cody Pickett’s school record later this month. RB Myles Gaskin is second in career rushing yards at UW with 4,055. He needs just 52 rushing yards vs. Auburn to eclipse Napoleon Kaufman’s record that was established from 1991-94.


    -- Browning connected on 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,719 yards with a 19/5 TD-INT ratio last year. He lost top target Dante Pettis to the NFL and TE Hunter Bryant went down with a season-ending injury last month. Look for junior WR Aaron Fuller to emerge as Browning’s go-to guy this season. Fuller had 26 catches for 291 yards and one TD in ’17.


    -- Gaskin ran for 1,380 yards and 21 TDs while averaging 6.2 YPC in ’17. He also had 19 receptions for 232 yards and three TDs.


    -- Washington senior OT Trey Adams is listed as ‘questionable’ with a knee injury. Adams was a second-team All-American two seasons ago, but he injured his knee in a late-October loss at ASU last year.


    -- The last time Petersen brought a team across country to Atlanta for a season opener was when he was at BSU in 2011. Kellen Moore and the Broncos came to the Ga. Dome and smashed Georgia 35-21 in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score indicated.


    -- ABC will provide the broadcast at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

    **West Virginia vs. Tennessee**



    -- As of Friday afternoon, most shops had WVU installed as a 9.5-point ‘chalk.’ The Volunteers were +300 on the money line, while the total was 61.5 points.


    -- Tennessee fired Butch Jones after last year’s 4-8 nightmare that brought an end to his five-year tenure. The Vols, who finished ’17 with an abysmal 2-10 spread record, lost all eight of their SEC games. They scored a just a 19.8 PPG clip while surrendering 29.1 PPG. UT finished the season minus 1,462 in total offense vs. its opponents.


    -- Jeremy Pruitt, who has been one of the nation’s top DC’s for many years during stops at Alabama, FSU, Georgia (and a second run at ‘Bama), landed his first HC-gig in Knoxville after a debacle of a coaching search that resulted in the dismissal of AD John Currie and the return of legendary coach Phil Fulmer to take his place. Currie had struck out on a slew of candidates after a fan revolt basically vetoed his desired hiring of former Rutgers HC Greg Schiano. Then when Currie appeared poised to hire Washington St.’s Mike Leach, he was ordered back to Knoxville from his meeting with Leach in California and handed a pink slip. Fulmer took over and decided to go with Pruitt several days later.


    -- UT brings back six starters on both offense and defense (12 total). The offense lost stud RB John Kelly, who ran for 778 yards and nine TDs as a senior. Pruitt has refused to announce a starting QB, leaving fans and pundits to wonder whether it will be sophomore Jarrett Guarantano or Stanford grad transfer Keller Chryst. The fifth-year senior took over the starting job for the Cardinal midway through ’16 and led it to a 6-0 record. Chryst went down with a torn ACL in a bowl-win over North Carolina, though. He made it back for Week 1 last season but wasn’t as effecting and eventually lost his job to K.J. Costello.


    -- West Virginia went 7-6 SU and 6-7 ATS in ’17. The Mountaineers bring back seven starters on offense and five on defense. Most important, QB Will Grier returns for his senior season. Grier had WVU with a 7-3 record going into a home game vs. Texas, but he dislocated a finger on his throwing hand early in the first quarter and missed the regular-season finale and the Heart of Dallas Bowl (a 30-14 loss to Utah). Grier completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 3,490 yards with a 34/12 TD-INT ratio upon his return to the field after being out since midway through the ’15 season.


    -- Grier might have the country’s best 1-2 combination of WRs in Gary Jennings and David Sills. Jennings had 97 receptions for 1,096 yards and one TD last year, while Sills had 60 catches for 980 yards and 18 TDs. Sills garnered second-team All-American honors and Jennings was a second-team All-Big-12 selection.


    -- Leading rusher Justin Crawford (1,061 yards LY) is gone, but Kennedy McCoy is ready to take on a bigger load. McCoy rushed for 596 yards and seven TDs with a 4.8 YPC average in ’17. Dana Holgorsen and his staff are high on redshirt freshman RB Alec Sinkfield.


    -- In his first seven years on the job at WVU, ‘Holgo’ is 4-6 in neutral-field games. He is 53-37 overall with only one losing season (4-8 in ’13).


    -- Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS.


    **B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**


    -- South Carolina will host Coastal Carolina at noon Eastern on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, the Gamecocks were favored by 29.5 points with a total of 57. Just like last year when I had South Carolina ‘over’ 5.5 wins (and it cashed before the calendar hit November) for its season win total, I recommended USC to go ‘over’ 7 wins earlier this summer. I’m already on it heavy at even money but unfortunately, the juice has gone so far North (at least -150 at many Vegas shops, as high as -190 at some offshores) for me to continue to endorse this play at the expensive price. Some offshore shops have even moved the number to 7.5 and still have juice on the ‘over’ (around -130 at most).


    -- Kentucky starting OT Landon Young was lost to a season-ending injury last week.


    -- Vanderbilt will play host to Middle Tennessee at 7:30 p.m. Easter on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, most books had the Commodores as three-point home favorites with a total of 56.5. They thumped the Blue Raiders 28-6 as three-point road ‘chalk’ in last year’s season opener. Check out more on Vandy from my preview earlier this summer.


    -- The lines for FBS games against FCS foes were not yet available when this column was filed late Friday afternoon. Florida is taking on Charleston Southern, Mississippi St. is hosting Stephen F. Austin, Arkansas is squaring off with Eastern Illinois in Chad Morris’s debut, Georgia will welcome Austin Peay between the hedges and finally, Missouri hosts UT-Martin.


    -- My full preview of Alabama vs. Louisville is here.


    -- New head coach Joe Moorhead has suspended star QB Nick Fitzgerald for one game due to a violation of team rules dating back to March. Keytaon Thompson will make his second career start vs. SF Austin. Thompson led the Bulldogs to a 31-27 Taxslayer Bowl victory over Louisville as 6.5-point underdogs. He rushed for 446 yards and six TDs with a 5.9 YPC average last year. For more on MSU, check out my preview here


    -- Texas A&M coasted to a 59-7 win over Northwestern St. on Thursday night in College Station. The Aggies took the cash as 46.5-point home 'chalk.' Trayveon Williams was the catalyst in Jimbo Fisher's debut, rushing for 240 yards and three TDs on 20 carries.

    Cincinnati at UCLA
    August 31, 2018



    By Kyle Markus


    NCAA Football Game Preview - Cincinnati Bearcats at UCLA Bruins



    The Chip Kelly era will begin when the UCLA Bruins open the season in Week 1 with a matchup against the Cincinnati Bearcats. Kelly built a dynasty at Oregon before trying his luck in the NFL. That didn’t work out so now he is back at the college level looking to dominate again.


    It could take a couple years until the Bruins get the right type of recruits in on offense to run his system, but UCLA at least hopes to show some progress this year. Cincinnati struggled to a 4-8 record last season and this is a tall test going on the road in the opener against a school with a lot of tradition.


    It’s easy to see why the Bearcats will be the underdogs in college football gambling.


    The Cincinnati Bearcats and UCLA Bruins will face off on Saturday, September 1st, 2018 at 7 p.m. ET at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.


    We'll have college football odds at BookMaker.eu available for every game of the 2018 NCAA football season.


    Odds Analysis


    UCLA is currently being wagered on as the 14.5-point favorite. The Bearcats are getting slightly more action at that number, especially because a two-touchdown loss would still result in a cover. However, the oddsmakers know what they are doing and wanted to get some more action on Cincinnati. The Bruins are the heavy -675 favorites on the moneyline and aren’t getting much money on that number. The Bearcats are bringing in some action as +492 underdogs.


    The scoring total is listed at 64 points, as the oddsmakers believe a shootout is on the horizon. The “over” is the more popular selection, with nearly 75 percent of the money headed that way in NCAA football odds.


    Quarterback Watch


    Kelly has yet to name a starting quarterback for this game and may choose not to before the contest. There is currently a three-way competition for the job, and while Kelly certainly has an idea who he is going to pick, he is keeping the decision close to the vest.


    Michigan transfer Wilton Speight is one option, as is Devon Modster and the athletic dynamo Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Speight doesn’t seem to fit the zone-read scheme which worked so well for Kelly in Oregon but he does have a lot of experience. Thompson-Robinson could make the most sense long term but it remains to be seen if he is the choice right away or if he still needs to gain experience before taking over. Keep an eye on any announcement regarding this position as it could have an effect on the outcome.


    Key Stat


    287. That’s the number of rushing yards per game UCLA gave up a season ago, which was among the worst in college football. While Kelly will work his magic on the offensive side of the ball, the Bruins are going to need to stop people in order to be competitive.


    Gerrid Doaks is one of the Cincinnati running backs looking to take advantage with a big game. He only had the third-most carries on the team in 2017 but finished as the leading rusher with 513 yards, averaging an impressing 5.9 yards per carry.


    Michael Warren II is also back and if the Bearcats’ running-back-by-committee can carve up big chunks of yardage on the ground this could be a close affair.


    Free College Football ATS Picks


    UCLA might not have the perfect situation at quarterback quite yet and the defense is a work in progress. Kelly is likely to get this thing humming sooner rather than later, but the opener could be a slog. Look for Cincinnati to keep this moderately close and cover the spread.


    UCLA will at least come away with a less-than-inspiring victory at home in college football gambling. Take the “under” on the scoring total.


    College Football ATS Pick: UCLA Bruins 34, Cincinnati Bearcats 27

    Michigan at Notre Dame
    August 31, 2018



    By Tom Wilkinson


    College Football Betting – Michigan at Notre Dame



    It is a matchup of Top 15 teams on Saturday night, as the Michigan Wolverines visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on NBC. It is a huge opener for both head coaches, as Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh has not won many big games in his tenure, while Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly could be on the hot seat in South Bend.


    The winner of this game will likely vault into the Top 10 and be a team to watch in terms of the College Football Playoff, while the loser could be out of contention. Let’s look at Saturday’s game and college football picks.


    Date and Time: Saturday, September 1, 2018, 7:30 p.m. ET
    Location: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, IN
    College Football Odds : Notre Dame -1.5, O/U 47
    Michigan vs. Notre Dame TV Coverage: NBC



    The focus on Saturday night will be on the quarterback position. The Fighting Irish are led by Brandon Wimbush, while the Wolverines have Shea Patterson. Wimbush was not that impressive last season, as he completed just 49% of his passes. He was replaced in the Citrus Bowl by Ian Book and if Winbush struggles again he could get a quick hook. Kelly said that he has changed the offense to take advantage of Winbush’s running ability. “This is much more about calling the offense for who Brandon Wimbush is than who we want him to be, more than anything else, and that’s what you’ll see Saturday night.” Kelly said to the media.


    On the other side, Patterson is a conventional drop back quarterback. Just how good he is we really don’t know because he will be playing for his fourth team in five years. He did play well for Ole Miss last season, but suffered a knee injury in a loss to LSU.


    Michigan was excellent on defense last season, as they were third in the country in total defense. They return two All-Big Ten defensive ends, Rashan Gary and Chase Winovich. Notre Dame is also stout on defense and could have their best defensive line since 2012.


    Players to Watch


    There is no question that this game will come down to the two quarterbacks. Patterson looked really good while at Ole Miss, and if he is as good as advertised the Wolverines could be national title contenders. What we don’t know is how he will handle playing in a hostile environment. On the other side, the Fighting Irish simply have to get great play from Winbush. Kelly changed the offense to suit Winbush, so it should be all about Winbush scrambling around and making plays with his feet and big arm. Kelly pretty much said exactly that to the media. “You have to be a guy that is out there making plays. Now, within the scope of the offense, we’re not drawing it up in the sand. But he’s a playmaker, and he’s got to go out there with the confidence to make plays.”


    Key Stats


    The Wolverines are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings at Notre Dame. The Wolverines are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Wolverines are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games. The Fighting Irish are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Big Ten.


    Looking at the total, the Over is 7-1-1 in the Wolverines last 9 non-conference games. The Over is 11-4 in the Wolverines last 15 road games. The Over is 4-0 in Notre Dame’s last 4 vs. the Big Ten.


    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Picks


    Who do you trust? That is really the question in this game. Harbaugh has not proven he can win big games and we don’t know how Patterson will react to pressure. Kelly hasn’t been much better in big games, and we don’t know if Winbush can avoid making mistakes. I lean a little bit to Notre Dame simply because they are at home, but the safer pick might just be to play the total. Both Michigan and Notre Dame have excellent defenses, so I will take this game under the total.


    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Pick: Under 47
    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Score Prediction: Notre Dame 23, Michigan 20

    Washington vs. Auburn
    August 31, 2018



    By Tom Wilkinson


    College Football Betting – Washington vs. Auburn



    Can you say elimination game in Week 1? The No. 6 Washington Huskies play the No. 9 Auburn Tigers on Saturday in Atlanta with the loser probably out of College Football Playoff consideration. Perhaps Auburn could get back into the discussion if they run the table because they play in the SEC, but Washington is almost assuredly done if they lose this game. The Tigers are slight favorites in this contest, with the total at 48.5. Let’s look at Saturday’s game on ABC and college football picks.


    Date and Time: Saturday, September 1, 2018, 3:30 p.m. ET
    Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
    College Football OddsI: Auburn -2.5, O/U 48.5
    Washington vs. Auburn TV Coverage: ABC



    The Huskies are the higher ranked team, but they are listed as an underdog in this contest. This is a neutral site game in Atlanta, but there is no question that the Tigers will have the edge in crowd support. Washington returns quarterback Jake Browning for his fourth season. He was really good for most of 2016 with 34 TDs and three picks in his first nine games, but he struggled late in that season with a shoulder injury and he never looked the same in 2017. Washington also brings back running back Myles Gaskin who returns for his senior season. He has had at least 1,300 yards in each of his first three seasons.


    On defense, the Huskies will rely heavily on defensive tackle Greg Gaines to stop the run. He has had some injury questions, but all indications are that he will play on Saturday. Washington defensive back JoJo McIntosh said to the media that this year’s defense is superb. “I think it’s the best defense we’ve had,” said McIntosh. “We’ve lost players over the years, but we keep getting more and more players, and we keep getting better and better.”


    The Tigers will rely heavily on running back Kam Martin who averaged 6.1 yards per carry last season. Auburn had three running backs last season who carried the load, but this season it looks to be all about Martin. The Tigers have a good passing attack with quarterback Jarrett Stidham, but they will be going up against an excellent Washington secondary.


    On defense, the Tigers will rely on defensive end Marlon Davidson who had 3.5 sacks and 43 tackles. He will be needed in a big way on Saturday, as the Auburn defense looks to pressure Browning. Washington head coach Chris Petersen is well aware of Auburn’s defense. “Their defense jumps out right away,” Petersen said to the media, “That is a physical group that doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. … Sometimes when guys are moving the ball and scoring points, its broken-down plays when quarterbacks are scrambling.”


    Key Stats


    The Huskies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on grass. The Huskies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games. The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The Tigers are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.


    Looking at the total, the Under is 8-3 in the Huskies last 11 games on grass. The Over is 7-3 in the Huskies last 10 non-conference games. The Under is 5-0-2 in the Tigers last 7 neutral site games. The Under is 12-3-2 in the Tigers last 17 non-conference games.


    Washington vs. Auburn Picks


    The Huskies and Tigers both feature top quarterbacks and solid running attacks, but each team also has a very good defense. Browning has simply not looked like a top quarterback since 2016 and Washington has relied on their running game. The Tigers have Stidham but they also want to run the ball. A lot of pundits have been going with the Huskies in this contest, but I am not sold on Browning and I think Auburn is the better team. Having said that, I think the best option is to play the total. Both teams should be able to slow down the opposing offense, so I will take this game under the total.


    Washington vs. Auburn Pick: Under 48.5
    Washington vs. Auburn Score Prediction: Auburn 24, Washington 21

    Saturday's Best Bet
    August 31, 2018
    By Bookmaker



    Saturday College Football Best Bet


    College football bettors are preparing like it's Christmas morning tomorrow with the first full slate of Saturday games upon us, and thankfully more and more programs are making note of what past CFB selection committees have done and not easing into the year with three or four “cupcakes” right out of the gate.


    There are some great games across the entire CFB landscape on Saturday – along with plenty of cupcake contests – and if you've been cruising around the VegasInsider.com site all week you've likely already come across some great content for some of these games.


    Yet, just like an actual Christmas morning, the more presents that have your name on the better, so I'm not going to shy away from providing even more great betting content for your consumption to hopefully get this first weekend of CFB out of the way with a few more betting units in our pockets.


    Odds per - Bookmaker.eu


    Best Bet #1: USC -26



    The USC Trojans are moving past the Sam Darnold era and into the JT Daniels era with Daniels being named as the starter earlier this week. Daniels is a true freshman – the first time USC has began a season with a true freshman QB since 2009 – and his appointment is why the betting percentages at VegasInsider.com show some heavy support for UNLV + all those points. But HC Clay Helton wouldn't have put this young kid in this role at a prominent program like USC if he didn't think he could hand the expectations and pressure both on and off the field.


    True freshman QB's are ones that I prefer to fade in their first game if it's on the road (and any first true road game really), but at home they are tend to be put in a position to succeed. Daniels is the reigning Gatorade National Player of the Year which definitely helps, and although the Trojans are also replacing their leading rusher and receiver from a year ago, those are positions that the Trjoans are always good at simply reloading. UNLV is not going to be a good defensive team at all in 2018, and this may end up being the perfect opponent for all those new faces on the Trojans attack to produce and gel.


    It's going to be the Trojans defense that's going to have to carry this team for the first few weeks (especially with a trip to Stanford on deck) and they are loaded with returning starters and experience in the back seven. All seven of their returning starters on defense are at least juniors, and with all of them either in the linebacking core or the secondary, there is little chance we see maybe any chunk plays from UNLV's attack. Sustaining drives against that type of experience won't be easy either, and if you are going to be a big road underdog and cover a four-TD spread, you've got to either score with big, explosive plays or sustain drives to shorten the game. UNLV won't be able to do either of those.


    Finally, you'd be remiss to ignore the betting percentages here as it seems a play on UNLV has only gathered so much momentum because many out there are quick to fade this USC team that's often overhyped and has a freshman QB. But many of those same bettors weren't singing the same tune on Thursday when they backed Minnesota and their freshman QB in a nearly identical spot, and UNLV is probably much worse than that New Mexico State team that was missing defensive starters and playing their second game in six days.


    The Trojans have likely heard much of that noise too about starting a freshman QB and trying to get back to the National Title picture and it's tough to imagine a better spot for them to come out at home and make a profound statement to the college football world that they are ready to take that next step this year. I made this line closer to the four-TD mark of -28, but with the Runnin' Rebels now in that dreaded public dog role and me already getting a number below 28, pouncing on the Trojans in Week 1 is a must in what should be a 30+ point win.
