Eastern Michigan +3 vs. Western Michigan

Blog Picks (14-10-1) (1 Loss in a Row)

 

I studied the MAC all summer in hopes of weekday MAction. Did not happen, but this is a conference i follow closely. It’s a real head-scratcher: Why is Eastern Michigan the underdog against Western Michigan? If you delve into the stats, you’ll discover that Western Michigan has had a tough time on the road, losing all five of their away games. Meanwhile, Eastern Michigan is red hot, having covered the spread in their last four games and coming out victorious in two of their last three.

What’s even more fascinating is Eastern Michigan’s recent dominance over Western Michigan. They’ve not only clinched four consecutive wins against them but have also covered the spread in the last five meetings when they were considered the underdogs. This trend is too compelling to overlook, and it’s happening once more as they find themselves in an underdog position in this long-standing rivalry.

It’s genuinely baffling that Eastern Michigan isn’t the favored team, especially when they’re playing on their home turf. Eastern Michigan has been on a winning streak, securing victories in their last five home games, marking the second-longest such streak in the MAC.

In an extraordinary milestone for their program, Eastern Michigan has achieved four straight wins over Western Michigan. This is particularly noteworthy since their rival has struggled when playing away from home this season. Betting on the home team in this matchup is a tantalizing proposition.

Even though Eastern Michigan averages slightly under 19 points per game, they’ve managed to secure victories in various conference games, a feat their rival hasn’t been able to replicate. When you add all these factors together, it’s challenging to resist the allure of Eastern Michigan in this spot. They have the momentum, a history of success, and the home-field advantage, making them a highly compelling choice for this matchup.

Vic Monte Sports – Saturday Night College Football Pick

San Diego State -11.5 vs. Nevada

Blog Picks (10-7-1) (4 wins in a Row)

 

We won’t sugarcoat it, the Nevada Wolf Pack isn’t exactly setting the world on fire, and they’re definitely in the running for one of the toughest seasons. Their defense is backstroking at 130th in scoring and a whopping 131st in yards per play allowed. And well, the offense, it’s just a tad better, not by much, though.

Starting the season with six losses, that’s a tough pill to swallow. What’s even more telling is that only one of those games was a nail-biter decided by less than 10 points. It’s been a bit of a rough ride.

Now, let’s talk about the San Diego State Aztecs. They broke out with a bang, scoring 41 points against a more formidable defense than the one they’re about to face. And here’s the kicker, they forced four turnovers, which is kind of their thing – they’re good at it.

Both of these teams entrust their offense to mobile quarterbacks, but the Aztecs, well, they just do it better. Jalen Mayden, the Aztecs’ QB, has been on fire, throwing for over eight yards per attempt in three of his last four games. He’s also taken a larger share of the running game, making him a real dual-threat.

Even though the Aztecs like to take things at a leisurely pace, they’ve managed to put up 41 points against Hawaii and 31 against Boise State. Nevada, on the other hand, hasn’t exactly been a brick wall on defense, and it’s unlikely to change in this matchup.

So, when you’re sizing up this game, it’s clear that the Aztecs are the ones holding the upper hand. They’re bringing a more potent offense, a knack for forcing turnovers, and a quarterback who knows how to get things done. Nevada’s in for a real challenge, to say the least. I Have the Aztecs Winning By 14 or More!

Vic Monte Sports – Penn State / Ohio State Selection

Penn State +4.5 @ Ohio State

 

Get ready for a colossal Big Ten showdown between two of the nation’s top 10 teams. It’s the kind of game that kicks off early, with the crispness of fall in the air, and you can’t help but be drawn into it.

Now, here’s the scoop: Penn State has had a bit of a tough time against the Buckeyes, holding a 1-6 straight-up record since 2016. But this year, something feels different. This might just be the cream of the crop for the Nittany Lions in the James Franklin era. They’re a force to be reckoned with, allowing opposing offenses just a meager 72.5 rushing yards and less than 200 total yards per game. It’s like trying to break through a brick wall against them.

But the Buckeyes, well, they’re no slouch either. They’ve been scoring points, but not as efficiently as they used to, sitting at 54th in the nation in red zone scoring. And then there’s the little matter of injuries, including their top corner and wide receiver, Emeka Egbuka. With him out, Marvin Harrison Jr. is going to find himself double-teamed, which can really shake things up.

What’s more, when you look back, Penn State has been a pretty good bet against the spread when facing the Buckeyes, boasting a 6-1 record since 2016. They seem to have a knack for keeping things interesting.

So, when you’re thinking about this game, it’s not just a clash of titans; it’s a real chess match. A game where the Nittany Lions might just be ready to turn the tide, and the Buckeyes are dealing with their fair share of challenges. It’s going to be one for the books, my friend. Enjoy the show!

OVER 41.5 Florida International/Sam Houston State

Blog Picks (7-7-1)

Alright, let’s chat about this over/under of 41.5 points in the Florida International at Sam Houston State game. Now, I’ve got a bone to pick with this number because it’s giving way too much credit to Sam Houston’s non-conference performance.

When you dive into the Conference USA play, things look quite different. The Bearkats’ offense has shown more teeth, and their games have been averaging over 46 points per game. That’s a far cry from their non-conference action, which was stuck at a rather modest 25 points per game.

And here’s the kicker – FIU’s defense isn’t exactly a fortress. They’ve been pretty lenient when it comes to allowing explosive plays, which is like an open invitation to some good old-fashioned scoring.

Now, here’s the interesting bit: in every Florida International game this season, they’ve either reached or gone over the 41-point mark. This just can’t be ignored.

So, when you’re looking at that 41.5 point line, it might be a sly bet to go over it, considering all these factors. I am looking for a high-scoring showdown! OVER 41.5 FIU/Sam Houston!

South Florida -3 vs. Florida Atlantic

Blog Picks (5-5-1)

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re about to witness the birth of a new rivalry as South Florida and Florida Atlantic go head to head, vying for the attention of potential recruits right here in the Sunshine State. It’s like a high-stakes game of chess, but with helmets and shoulder pads.

Now, let’s talk about South Florida’s rising star, freshman QB Byrum Brown. This kid’s like a fine wine, getting better with each game. In his last three outings, South Florida’s offense has been putting on a scoring clinic, putting up 42, 44, and 35 points respectively. I mean, it’s like watching a magician at work. Brown’s been dealing like a pro, completing a jaw-dropping 72 passes out of 106 attempts, racking up 1033 yards, seven touchdowns, and just a couple of hiccups in the form of interceptions.

On the other side of the field, we’ve got Florida Atlantic, who’ve been struggling to light up the scoreboard lately, managing only 61 points in their last four games. They’ve had their own drama with QB Casey Thompson, a seasoned starter at both Nebraska and Texas, but he’s out for the season with a torn ACL. Enter the backup, Daniel Richardson, a transfer from Central Michigan, who’s been having a hard time finding his groove, completing only 59% of his passes, averaging a mere 7 yards per pass, and throwing just two touchdowns while being a bit too generous with three interceptions.

Now, in this high-stakes showdown, it seems like the smart money is on the Bulls with a -2.5 spread. They’ve got the momentum, they’ve got the numbers, and they’ve got Byrum Brown, the young maestro. It’s a no-brainer.

Vic Monte Sports – Saturday College Football Free Pick

OVER 59.5 Syracuse/North Carolina

Blog Free Picks: (4-0-1)

I am making a small play on the OVER 59.5 in the Syracuse/North Carolina Game Today at Kenan Stadium! Crappy weather along the east coast will play no factor in this game, perfect 66 degrees and 0% chance of rain in the Chapel Hill, North Carolina forecast.

Both of these ACC schools play a fast, uptempo game that will work in our favor. They are also both lead by veteran signal callers. Tar Heels Junior QB Drake Maye tossed 35 touchdowns and ran 7 more in last season as a sophomore. The Orange are lead by 6th year senior Garrett Shrader. The old man on campus has thrown for 8 TD’s and got 6 more on the ground this season! I love the fact that both of these guys know how to get their team in the end zone.

North Carolina has put up 31+ points in every game this season. The Orange had topped 29+ points in every game until they ran into Dabo Sweeneys angry Clemson Defense last week.

Unders are 4-1 in Syracuse’s 5 games this season and 2-2 in North Carolina’s 4 contest to date. That is exactly why we’re getting this line on a discount! OVER 59.5 Syracuse/North Carolina

Nebraska Huskers +3.5 @ Illinois Illini

Blog Free Picks: (3-0-1)

 

I am making a small play on the Nebraska Huskers +3.5 points under the Friday Night Lights in Champaign Illinois. Illinois had a feared, top defense last season. That was last year and now is this year! Right now the Illini defense ranks 113 in the nation in defensive success rate. They have been worse against the run with a national rank of 119th in rushing success rate allowed. Nebraska is the squad that enters play with the better defense this season! The Husker run defense is allowing just 2.6 yards per play! I think this is a perfect situation for a Nebraska team that has has success running the ball and defending the run this season. This Nebraska team has clear advantages on the Defensive and Offensive side of the ball regardless who is under center, Jeff Sims or Heinrich Haarberg. Its also worth noting that the Huskers have covered in 2 of their 3 games this season with the only loss coming to Michigan. Plus we’re getting 3.5 points with a better defense and better coach! Huskers +3.5 to the Window!

Saturday Free College Winner Buffalo Bulls at Akron Zips

Buffalo Bulls +3 @ Akron Zips

 

Lifetime bottom feeders the Akron Zips had plenty of chances to pull an upset last week against Indiana. They lost by 2 points as 16.5 point underdogs. After two straight tough games (@Indiana and @Kentucky) the Zips head home to play a winless Buffalo team. Buffalo has lost their first 4 games of the season and the defense is allowing over 500 total yards this season. The only games Buffalo was competitive in was @ Louisiana Lafayette and Fordham. They got smoked by Wisconsin and Liberty, both road games. Akron is 5-1 SU last 6 meetings and taking over 87% of the action in this game!

So why would I take Buffalo on a 6 game road losing streak and headed into a hostile environment at Summa Field?

Because None of this Makes Sense! The Books are Taking a Ton of Action on the Zips and the Line Has Not Moved. Every Stat and Angle is Pointing Towards Akron. This is a Classic Sucker Bet, I am Taking Buffalo and Putting Us on the Same Side as the Bookies!
