The Picks Are In For Week 4 CFB
This week was supposed to be the release of the first episode of Trophy Kids. Unfortunately, the world will have to wait another week because a really dumb thing happened. We forgot to hit record but don’t worry because we are here to give you the picks you needed to get through week 4.
Nate’s Picks: Last week went 3-1
#17 TCU at Texas (+3): This is an absolute no-brainer, you have to go with TCU. Texas stinks, and I mean STINKS. They barely beat Tulsa and lost to a Maryland team that hasn’t been relevant since those Protect This House ads. You think they are going to cover a three-point spread? Child Please, I am taking the Christians.
Pick: TCU -3
WARNING RISKY PICK AHEAD
#7 Stanford at #20 Oregon (+2.5): I think this is the most interesting pick of the week. It’s a risky one, but sometimes you have to risk it to get the biscuit. Oregon is averaging 51.7 points per game, giving them a big confidence boost as an offense. They are also playing at home playing in one of the best atmospheres in the country, and this dumb football brain thinks that matters.
I know Bryce Love is going to be an aboslute stud but at the end of the day but I don’t think it will matter. I think this is the game the Ducks put the nation on notice that they returned to the good old days. When they could put up points in a hurry and make defenses look silly.
Pick: Oregon (+2.5)
#23 Boston College at Purdue (O/U at 65.5 points): I have a good feeling on this one. Aj Dillion has been a beast for BC on the ground. Since taking over the starting running back role in 2017, the BC offense has averaged +39 a game. You match that with the Purdue offense that caught fire last week and QB David Blough went 39-55 for 572 yards and 3 TDS. You combine these two teams and you have what I think can be an explosive game ahead. Expect lots of points in this one.
Pick: Over 65.5
Now for what you have all been waiting for… my LOCK OF THE WEEK
#2 Georgia at Missouri (+14.5): This line is disgusting an absolute insult to the Bulldogs. How do you only have them as a 14.5 favorite? It should be much higher! Georgia was my lock last week and I going back to them. When you’re hot, you go with what you know. So what do I know? I know the rankings are wrong and Georgia is the second best team in the country. I know the offense is rolling early and averaging +40 in the first three weeks. I know the defense is fast, big, and tough and has been cracking skulls and taking names this year. So this is a murder game. I don’t care how good Missouris quarterback is because the Bulldogs defense is going to ruin his day. Give me the Bulldogs all day long.
Pick: Georgia -14.5, Go Dogs!
Tim’s Picks: Last week I went 1-3. Not great
Lock of the week
UConn at Syracuse (+27.5): After a rough showing last week and letting my emotions get the best of me, I’m going to follow some stats. Uconn under head coach Randy Edsall is 0-6 against the spread in non conference games. Uconn is so bad this year, and Syracuse is surprisingly good I’m taking Syracuse +27.5
Pick: Syracuse +27.5
Over or under
#3 Clemson at Georgia Tech (52 O/U): I’m following the stats again for my over-under of the week. Clemson is 14-4 against the spread when they are at least a double digit road favorite since 2011. Taking the over in the Clemson vs. Georgia Tech game at 52.
Pick: Over 52
#18 Wisconsin at Iowa (+3): I know Wisconsin should be due for a bounce-back game after a rough showing against BYU last week. However, Iowa is a very tough place to play. I’m following more stats in this game. Iowa is 9-3 against the spread in its last 12 home games when they are the underdogs.
Pick: Iowa +3
#23 Boston College at Purdue (-7): Sticking to the Purdue vs. BC Game Nate took the over in, I’m taking BC -7 against Purdue. Purdue is 1-8 ATS in its last 9 as a home underdog so let’s hope my week of stats filled picks goes much better than last week.
Pick: BC (-7)
Let’s see how it plays.
P.s. If you came here for proper grammar and articulate writing, go read a book. This is Pick em season, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Hot Picks Only… but seriously come back next week for more.
