HERE WE GO! Our 2nd College Football pick sheet of the year. First one went 3-2 +.75 unit. Let's start the season strong and remember.. LONG TERM PROFITS!
OHIO STATE -14
MIN/OSU 1H U31.5
I'm sure you watched today's episode on youtube. All anyone is talking about when it comes to Ohio State is the quarterback... yes CJ Stroud is a downgrade from Justin Fields and is very inexperienced. But we're completely ignoring how LOADED this roster is top to bottom.
I think last year showed us Minnesota and Tanner Morgan's true colors. His sophomore year, he had both Tyler Johnson AND Rashod Bateman to toss up bombs to... and he had a great year. Last year... he ONLY had Rashod Bateman... and defenses were able to spotlight him and force Tanner Morgan to beat them any other way. He struggled. Now Bateman is also gone. I think the Buckeyes could seriously hold Minnesota to single digit points.
APPALACHIAN ST -9
After winning four consecutive Sun Belt titles, Appalachian State had a down 2020 by its lofty standards, as it dropped games against the three best teams it played for the season. However this is a wining program and looks to come out hot. App St has a bunch of people back of both sides of the ball so they should have the upper hand when it comes to a team playing together. This could be a back and forth game but App St will be able to keep it going for longer.
Two high powered offense come to FL to play tonight. One of the top QB’s in the country in Dillon Gabriel and he should thrive in this matchup. Where Boise has lost its top 2 Corners, and has some other question marks on defense. Don't chase this line, it has moved from -5 to -6.5 and that is as far as I will go.
NC STATE -19.5
I'm gonna be honest... I'm not very familiar with South Florida... This is actually CP's pick but I know the ACC well and I definitely can get on board with betting them in week 1. This team started off strong 4-1 in their first 5... THEN last Devin Leary, (their quarterback), to a broken leg... then still finished the season 4-3 without him. But Devin Leary is back now and he'll be starting at quarterback tonight.
I like NC State this year... but most importantly, I think their very under-valued and I think we can grab 2 or 3 early covers before the books and the public catch on.
OH YEAH AND THEY'RE RETURNING 19 OF 22 STARTERS!
TENN/BGSU UNDER 61
This is CP's pick. He said and I quote "strong lean"... but he didn't have time to put together a write up for this one. Let's throw it on the ticket for a half unit.
