Florida State at Penn State
Tuesday 01/03 08:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Florida State +10 (-110)

Does an 8-4 team deserve a BCS berth? Who cares about the BCS - it's a joke. FSU snuck in here with an upset win over VaTech. Nice what the Nittany Lions have done this season. ...

Wisconsin at Auburn

Iowa State at TCU
Saturday 12/31 02:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Iowa State +3 (-110)

Yes TCU is 10-1, but come on, the Mountain West was waaay down this season, and the Horned Frogs are probably not as good as their record would seem to indicate. Iowa State had ...

South Florida at NC State
Saturday 12/31 11:00 AM Eastern
1 unit on NC State -3.5 (-110)

This line has moved from -7 to -3.5. South Florida has shown moxie this season, beating Louisville and giving W. Virginia all they could handle at the end of the season. But, th...

Missouri at South Carolina
Friday 12/30 03:30 PM Eastern
3 units on South Carolina -4 (-110)

Spurrier’s teams have always done very well in bowl games and he puts a ton of stock in them. What we know about Mizzou is they go as Brad Smith goes. When Smith is not pl...

Friday 12/30 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Minnesota -4.5 (-110)

The Wahoos lost two of their last three games landing them here, where they play a very good Gopher team with a mean offensive line. Minnesota is making its fourth straight bowl...

Thursday 12/29 08:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Oregon -3 (-110)

Oregon has had a wonderful season. They finished 10-1 and their lonely setback came at the hands of SC, with an exceptional performance from Reggie Bush. Oregon will need to foc...

Utah at Georgia Tech
Thursday 12/29 04:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Utah +8.5 (-110)

Will the Yellow Jackets show up? Time will tell, but they cannot be happy with this match-up whatsoever. Utah fans support their football program like no other and will show up ...

28

Nebraska at Michigan
Wednesday 12/28 08:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Michigan -11.5 (-110)

While I've gone with emotion over talent in a lot of games this bowl season, I'm breaking with that here. This is a huge mismatch. Do not be fooled by the Huskers last win again...

28

Boston College at Boise State
Wednesday 12/28 04:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Boise State +1.5 (-110)

Home underdogs in a bowl game? Worth a long hard look. Dan Hawkins last game in Boise will be an emotional ride, and the home team will no doubt want to send their man out on to...

27

Rutgers at Arizona State
Tuesday 12/27 08:30 PM Eastern
3 units on Rutgers +10.5 (-110)

Rutgers is singing the praises of Greg Schiano, the former Miami DC who has built Rutgers into a respectable program. It took some time, but he finally has some of his hometown ...

1 unit on Memphis -5.5 (-110)

Akron enters this game on a roll having won four of its last five and the MAC Championship game in dramatic fashion to secure the bowl bid. This is the first bowl game for the Z...

23

Houston at Kansas
Friday 12/23 08:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Houston +3 (-110)

This figures to be an embarrassing bowl year for the Big 12, and this could be the most embarrassing loss as it comes against the worst opponent of any game. But, Houston has a ...

22

Navy at Colorado State
Thursday 12/22 10:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Navy -2.5 (-110)

On paper, CSU has the better athletes, and runs the sexier offense. But as we know, never underestimate the men they call Midshipmen. Navy can flat out run the football and will...

22

BYU at California
Thursday 12/22 08:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on BYU +7.5 (-110)

Again, we get a less than fully motivated team to fade here. Cal was supposed to be the team that would challenge USC for Pac 10 supremacy. Hardly. Their defense was just above ...

21

UTEP at Toledo
Wednesday 12/21 08:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Toledo -3 (-110)

This is the first interesting match-up of the bowl season, as Toledo once again goes bowling. Toledo has not fared well in bowl games of late, losing big to UCONN last season an...

1 unit on Arkansas State +17 (-110)

2 units on South Florida +9.5 (-110)

The Bulls were poised and fired up for this game which should have been for the Big East title, but a certain Husky team derailed those hopes last weekend. We predicted a down w...

Middle Tennessee State at Florida International
Saturday 12/03 07:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Florida International +6.5 (-110)

Don't be fooled in this one. These two teams are pretty evenly matched and Middle Tennesee State's rushing game is horrific. Getting 6.5 at home against that kind of running gam...

03

Army at Navy
Saturday 12/03 02:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Navy -6.5 (-110)

Army has salvaged their season over the past four weeks by finding their running game. They have beaten one and one half quality opponent over that time period though, so their ...

Colorado at Texas
Saturday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Colorado +27.5 (-110)

Well folks, we all know they drill here. There is a ton of pressure on the Longhorns in this one. Colorado has dropped two in a row, turning in horrible performances in both gam...

Saturday 11/26 08:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Notre Dame -18 (-110)

Since 1992, the Fighting Irish are 8-3 ATS in this matchup including 4-1 at Stanford. And, this team is leaps and bounds above the Irish teams of the recent past. Stanford was s...

26

South Florida at Connecticut
Saturday 11/26 03:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Connecticut +8 (-110)

South Florida is playing well right now but the numbers do not point to a ATS win here for the Bulls. Part of the discrepancy between these two teams is turnovers and these thin...

26

Iowa State at Kansas
Saturday 11/26 12:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Kansas +3 (-110)

Surprised this line moved down a bit, as the country may not know it, but Kansas has a pretty good football team. Sure they were drilled by Texas, but who hasn't? Iowa State wou...

Week 12

22

Toledo at Bowling Green
Tuesday 11/22 07:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Bowling Green -5 (-110)

Both team needs this for different reasons. Toledo's season is over with a loss. Bowling Green can take their division title with a win. Toledo is 1-4 ATS on the road this seaso...

Colorado State at UNLV
Saturday 11/19 04:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Colorado State -14.5 (-110)

Colorado State needs to win this game to become Bowl-eligible which is a huge edge in this game for them. UNLV stands to gain nothing here and it is not like the Rebs play in fr...

19

Ohio State at Michigan
Saturday 11/19 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Michigan +3 (-110)

This game has been unreal the last few years, in that whomever is not supposed to win this game or has the least on the line, always wins the game. That should happen here once ...

19

Minnesota at Iowa
Saturday 11/19 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Iowa -4.5 (-110)

Another big game in the Big Ten with Bowl implications. Minnesota is a good team, but their run game here should be silenced a bit in the Iowa home field. Iowa is 11-2 ATS again...

19

Northwestern at Illinois
Saturday 11/19 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Northwestern -15 (-110)

Big line here but the Wildcats have an explosive offense and Zook's boys have been blown out nearly every game this season. They have lost by 15 or more points in 9 of their 10 ...

19

Oklahoma at Texas Tech
Saturday 11/19 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Oklahoma +7.5 (-110)

This looks like a pretty bad line in my opinion. Sure Oklahoma let A&M back in the game last weekend (as we predicted), but they are running the football very well for the f...

Week 11

16

Northern Illinois at Toledo
Wednesday 11/16 07:30 PM Eastern
3 units on Toledo -8 (-110)

This has been a series of domination in recent history as Toledo is a perfect 6-0 ATS and 9-0 SU against NIU. Toledo looks like the best team in the MAC this year and should con...

Ohio at Akron
Tuesday 11/15 07:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Akron -3 (-110)

Ohio comes into this one at 1-4 ATS on the road. They've scored just 14 points per game away from home and are now 1-8 ATS on the road over the past two seasons. Akron has been ...

Arizona State at UCLA
Saturday 11/12 07:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Arizona State +3.5 (-110)

UCLA was exposed in a major way last weekend and I will not be surprised if that trend continues on Saturday. They are simply not physical on defense, and will give up a ton of ...

12

BYU at Wyoming
Saturday 11/12 06:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Wyoming +4.5 (-110)

Everyone's on BYU in this one. BYU has been playing well and this has been a dissappointing season for the Cowboys, a team many were expecting to roll this season after their im...

Louisiana Tech at Idaho
Saturday 11/12 05:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Idaho +10 (-110)

Remember last week when we went with Utah State? A lot that had to do with travel and we got backdoored in that game. Louisian Tech must travel a great distance once again, and ...

12

Central Florida at UAB
Saturday 11/12 04:00 PM Eastern
2 units on UAB -8 (-110)

UAB is the superior team and program. Let's face it. Since the departure of Duante Culpepper, UCF has never been the same. UAB has fared far better against common opponents, par...

12

USC at California
Saturday 11/12 03:30 PM Eastern
2 units on California +19 (-110)

This is a very similar game to the one the Bears almost won at home three years ago. USC is rolling and is very talented but they are due for one of those games and the Bears ha...

12

South Florida at Syracuse
Saturday 11/12 01:30 PM Eastern
4 units on Syracuse +8 (-110)

South Florida, posted as underdogs in all but one of their previously linedgames, finds themselves as a huge road favorite here. Is it deserved? Not really. Sure, the Cuse has b...

Texas A&M at Oklahoma
Saturday 11/12 12:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Texas A&M +13.5 (-110)

A&M has looked bad this season and the pressure is now starting to heat up for the Aggies and HC Dennis Franchione in the final month of the season. A win here would go a lo...

08

Southern Miss at Marshall
Tuesday 11/08 07:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Marshall +7 (-110)

If you have been following, home underdogs have done very well this year in college pigskin. Marshall has been an up and down bunch but so has Southern Mississippi. Marshall has...

05

Louisiana Tech at Utah State
Saturday 11/05 03:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Utah State +7.5 (-110)

05

Northern Illinois at Central Michigan
Saturday 11/05 01:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Northern Illinois -2.5 (-110)

If you look solely at the history of these schools, this line is a joke. NIU has coverd six of the last seven meetings between these teams. But Central Michigan has played prett...

05

South Carolina at Arkansas
Saturday 11/05 12:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Arkansas -4 (-110)

South Carolina had a huge win last week at Tennessee and this game has letdown written all over it. Spurrier will make his major splash this offseason in recruiting, but this te...

05

Boston College at North Carolina
Saturday 11/05 12:00 PM Eastern
3 units on North Carolina +4.5 (-110)

Carolina is a Jeckyll and Hyde bunch this season but do not be fooled here. BC is not good enough to be laying over a field goal on the road here in a conference tilt. Carolina ...

03

Pittsburgh at Louisville
Thursday 11/03 07:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Louisville -20.5 (-110)

Mismatches will abound in this one as Pitt is just weak this season, and there is no real way around that. Lousiville, although they tripped-up this season against S. Florida an...

Week 9

29

TCU at San Diego State
Saturday 10/29 08:00 PM Eastern
5 units on San Diego State +7 (-110)

Michigan at Northwestern
Saturday 10/29 07:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Northwestern +3 (-110)

Anyone remember the magic of Darnell Autry and Steve Schnur years ago leading Northwestern to the Rose Bowl under then head coach Gary Barnett? Well, Randy Walker and his boys a...

29

Middle Tennessee State at Florida International
Saturday 10/29 06:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Florida International +8 (-110)

Eight point conference home dogs with 18 returning starters. Definitely worth a long hard look. FIU is better than the makers have been thinking and this line is too high. They ...

29

Arizona at Oregon State
Saturday 10/29 04:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Oregon State -9 (-110)

OSU is coming off a beating at the hands of UCLA but they are not a bad team. The week prior, they beat Cal outright as a two-touchdown underdog and the week before that, they a...

29

Missouri at Kansas
Saturday 10/29 01:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Kansas +6 (-110)

The public will love the Tigers here, but WAIT! Lost in last week's box scores was the fact that the Huskers small, slow linebackers were finally exposed and the fact that Kansa...

Week 8

22

Marshall at UTEP
Saturday 10/22 09:00 PM Eastern
2 units on UTEP -13 (-110)

This Marshall team is not the one to which we have become accustomed in past seasons while Mike Price's bunch are better than a stripper in the heart of Bama. In all seriousness...

22

Florida Atlantic at Arkansas State
Saturday 10/22 07:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Arkansas State -8 (-110)

The Indians have had a bad offense to date but Florida Atlantic's offense may be worse off. Home favorites with a terrible defense that has allowed 425 or more total yards/game,...

22

North Texas at Louisiana Tech
Saturday 10/22 04:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Louisiana Tech -20 (-110)

Big spread but not big enough. North Texas may not score in this one. They're averaging 9.2 points per game while Tech is averaging 25 per game, 40 at home and 35.7 overall over...

22

Tennessee at Alabama
Saturday 10/22 03:30 PM Eastern
3 units on Tennessee +3.5 (-110)

Alabama looked great when they throttled Florida at home a couple of weeks ago but Prothro shattered his legs, and the Tide lost their best most dynamic play maker. They were, n...

Texas Tech at Texas
Saturday 10/22 03:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Texas -15 (-110)

Wanna find an overrated football team? Look no further than the Texas Tech Red Raiders. They have beaten exactly NO ONE on the way to an undefeated start to their season. They a...

22

Nebraska at Missouri
Saturday 10/22 12:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Nebraska +2 (-110)

This will be a meaningful game in the Big 12 North. The winner will have control of fighting Colorado for the outright title. The loser will have a steep uphill battle. This gam...

22

Michigan at Iowa
Saturday 10/22 12:00 PM Eastern
5 units on Iowa -2.5 (-110)

Here Iowa's first chance against a good team since they were beat down by Ohio State. This looks like a different Hawkeye team right now, dominating opponents. Teams outgaining ...

20

Virginia Tech at Maryland
Thursday 10/20 07:45 PM Eastern
2 units on Maryland +10.5 (-110)

Something smells fishy here. Quite fishy indeed. The South is not a fun place to play at night on the road, and that is what VT is facing. And, two huge games on the horizon in ...

Week 7

15

Utah State at Fresno State
Saturday 10/15 10:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Fresno State -33 (-110)

Big line here but this game could turn out like Fresno's first game of the season against Weber State - a game that ended 55-7. Fresno State, returning 9 offensive and 7 defensi...

15

San Jose State at Boise State
Saturday 10/15 08:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Boise State -30.5 (-110)

There are few tasks more daunting than playing Boise on the god forsaken Blue Carpet they call a home field. It truly is one of the top home field advantages in all of college f...

15

Army at TCU
Saturday 10/15 07:00 PM Eastern
2 units on TCU -22.5 (-110)

TCU has been one of the pleasant surprises this football season. They opened with an upset over the Sooners, sending Oklahoma into a tailspin. TCU is superior here in every face...

Nebraska at Baylor
Saturday 10/15 07:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Baylor +3 (-110)

There is a secret brewing down in the heart of Texas. Baylor is a good football team once again this season. Nebraska is coming off a heartbreaker to Tech on their home field. I...

15

UCLA at Washington State
Saturday 10/15 06:30 PM Eastern
4 units on Washington State +5 (-110)

Something smells like chicken in this one - and not fresh chicken, either. UCLA is a notoriuos up and down football team, and they are coming off the heels of a huge win against...

15

North Texas at Florida International
Saturday 10/15 06:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Florida International -1.5 (-110)

A tale of two programs headed in the opposite direction here. UNT has been very good over the last couple of years, but that is not the case anymore. They lost much of the offen...

Oklahoma State at Texas A&M
Saturday 10/15 03:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Texas A&M -18 (-110)

A&M was not expecting the buzz saw it walked into in Boulder last weekend. Colorado was already whipped by a superior opponent and had turned up their level of play in that ...

Indiana at Iowa
Saturday 10/15 12:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Iowa -14.5 (-110)

Iowa is due for a break out game here. They have had a tough go of it thus far for a team that was picked by many to win the Big Ten. They obviously will not, but they should ha...

Ohio State at Penn State
Saturday 10/08 07:45 PM Eastern
2 units on Penn State +3.5 (-110)

Another big Big Ten showdown in Happy Valley this week as the Buckeyes invade looking to take a hold on the Big Ten lead. One problem here - I think Ohio State is a bit overrate...

08

California at UCLA
Saturday 10/08 07:30 PM Eastern
2 units on California +1 (-110)

This maybe the third biggest game in the PAC-10 this season and we think the wrong team is favored. This one comes down to coaching. Dorrell frankly cannot hold Tedford's jock i...

08

Houston at Tulane
Saturday 10/08 06:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Tulane +1 (-110)

The Green Wave is similar to LSU in that they have lost their home to Hurricane Katrina. Lost in all of this is that the Green Wave has played pretty darn good football to date,...

08

TCU at Wyoming
Saturday 10/08 03:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Wyoming -6.5 (-110)

Wyoming is perfect this year against the spread in five games and their only straight-up loss came to Florida on the road. They've won two games straight-up as underdogs includi...

08

Baylor at Iowa State
Saturday 10/08 02:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Baylor +9 (-110)

The Bears head into Ames on the heels of last Saturday's near upset of the Aggies at Kyle Field. Guy Morriss seems to have turned the corner with this program and has them heade...

08

Air Force at Navy
Saturday 10/08 01:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Navy -1 (-110)

The first battle for the Commander in Chief trophy and this line looks a bit small from our perspective. AFA has been pretty average thus far this season, getting romped by CSU,...

Marshall at Virginia Tech
Saturday 10/08 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Virginia Tech -34.5 (-110)

Va Tech is 5-0 straight up and ATS. They are winning by an average score of 39-8 and at home it's 48-3.5. Marcus Vick looks better than his more famous brother right now. Marsha...

Syracuse at Connecticut
Friday 10/07 08:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Connecticut -6.5 (-110)

UCONN is sitting at 3-1 with their only loss coming to Georgia Tech. They shut out Buffalo 38-0, shut out Liberty 59-0 and beat Army on the road last week 47-13. Syracuse has pl...

05

Miami Ohio at Northern Illinois
Wednesday 10/05 07:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Northern Illinois -2.5 (-110)

These two teams are pretty evenly matched which factors into this line with the home field. This was expected to be a rebuilding year for NIU, but they have played everyone toug...

01

Notre Dame at Purdue
Saturday 10/01 07:45 PM Eastern
1 unit on Notre Dame +3 (-110)

How good is this Notre Dame team with Charlie Weiss at the helm? It is becoming evident that the Irish lost to a very good Michigan State team on their home field. Outside of th...

Utah State at Idaho
Saturday 10/01 05:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Idaho +2.5 (-110)

Love this game! These two teams made the jump to the WAC and will pay for it until recruiting cycles can upgrade their talent levels. Both of these teams have played UNLV with U...

01

Washington State at Oregon State
Saturday 10/01 04:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Oregon State -2 (-110)

Pretty evenly matched squads here. But, Oregon State played a very challenging OOC schedule which will benefit them. OSU started off 2-0 but then dropped two straight. But, can ...

01

Iowa State at Nebraska
Saturday 10/01 03:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Iowa State +3.5 (-110)

We have have had multiple opportunities to watch these two teams play this season and this is a generous line for the Huskers. The only way they win this game, regardless of the...

The whole country seems to be all bout the Hokies right now and it looks well deserved at this point. This however, looks like a trap game in our opinion. They are coming off a ...

When will the Cavs live up to the hype? We are really beginning to wonder. Groh continually attracts top talent to UVA, but he has yet to do a whole lot with it. This season the...

New Mexico at UTEP
Saturday 09/24 09:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on UTEP -2.5 (-110)

Mike Price's bunch is the better team and 2.5 is too little to lay. They disposed of Houston last week barely, but had the game in control for the majority of it. RB Ebell will ...

1 unit on Kent State +4 (-110)

Both teams coming off big losses last weekend. Ohio is really struggling offensively, having put up 14, 16 and 0 points. Not a good sign form them as they are 0-6 ATS following ...

1 unit on Northwestern +8 (-110)

Paterno's team is not good enough to be laying this many points to an underrated Northwestern bunch. Penn St. is 0-9 ATS after allowing 14 points or less last game over the last...

Purdue at Minnesota
Saturday 09/24 12:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Purdue +3.5 (-110)

Huge game in the Big Ten in the Twin Cities. Purdue does not have Michigan or Ohio State on the schedule this season, so a win here sets them up nicely to run the table. They'll...

Tough break here for the Tigers with the move, but, we see two distictive things that aid the Tigers here. First one is overall talent. ASU has a nice team, but they have nowher...
