College Football Picks

Total Pro Sports- We started our season of free college football picks on a sour note going 1-2 last week.  This week we have three picks that will not dissapoint.  College Football is not a predictable sport, however there are many games throughout the week that have favorable lines.  Week 5 is no exception so let’s take a look at the games that we should be laying money on.

1. Alabama @ Georgia (-6.5, O/U 45)

Pick: Alabama Crimson Tide +6.5 This is a interesting game because the upstart Crimson Tide were not supposed to be atop the SEC at this point in the season.  We like what Alabama brings into this game, the key to a road upset is within the arsonel of the Crimson Tide.  They need their defense to continue to shut down the other teams offense, the running duo of Coffee and Ingram must be able to control the clock and keep Georgia’s offense of the field, and finally John Parker Wilson has to make plays in the passing game. The senior quarterback must play a large role in the offense for the Crimson Tide to have a chance. Take the points and the Tide on Saturday.

2. TCU @ Oklahoma (-18.5, O/U 53.5)

Pick: TCU Horned Frogs + 18.5 I think that the line makers don’t know these teams well enough.  The Horned Frogs are no pushovers and that line is a little disrespectful.  That’s not a problem for this team however, they enjoy being the underdogs.  TCU has had recent success playing in Oklahoma, they were winners in their last two visits to Norman.  Both teams have dominated opponents this year and this game features two teams in the top 25 power rankings.  Take the points with the Horned Frogs.

3. Illinois @ Penn State (-15.5, O/U 54.5)

Pick: Over 54.5 The Nittany Lions look nearly unstoppable on offense this season.  The only team that has been able to slow them down is themselves if they can avoid turning the ball over they should be able to score some points.  The Illini are no slouches of offense either, with Juice Williams behind centre the offense should be able to do enough to keep it within reach heading into the final quarter.  We predict a 37-24 win for the Nittany Lions.

If you would like to go 3 for 3 on your picks this Saturday, take these and enjoy the money because Las Vegas is giving it away. These picks are strictly my opinion and there is obviously no guarantee, however, I know I’m going to win them all.
