Friday Night College Football Picks
Is there anything better than pre-gaming for a night out by tossing some money on a few football games? Getting all your drinks paid for before you even leave your apartment? Probably one of the best feelings in the world. With some college games on tonight, hopefully, I can pave the way for your free drinks.
Game 1: Utah @ USC
Granted it was against Idaho State, but Utah is coming off their most complete game of the year last week. Utah was able to hold Idaho State to just 116 yards all game, topping it off with at 31-0, shutout win.
USC lost an overtime heartbreaker in overtime at BYU last week, resulting them to fall out of the top 25. Kedon Slovis threw 3 picks in the loss, including one on overtime that ended the game.
They are back on home field this week taking on their first top 10 ranked team all year. I think this will be a big statement game for USC, that can either shoot them right back into the rankings or become the start of a collapse. I do think this game will be closed for a while, but I think Utah will prevail in the end. The spread currently sits at -3.5, if you can tease it down to 3, I am a big fan of Utah.
Game 2: Air Force @ Boise State
I do want to give Air Force a lot of credit for going on the road and beating a sneaky good Colorado team in overtime, to keep the perfect record intact. That being said, even though I think Colorado is underrated, they are not Boise State. I’ve been on Boise state after that unbelievable comeback on the road against Florida State in week 1, and until they give me a reason to do otherwise, I am going to stay on Boise State. Spread currently sits at -7.5 which I do think will hit still, but any time you can buy the .5 to make it an even touchdown I always think it’s worth it.
1 Unit: Utah (-3) (-120)
1 Unit: Boise State (-7)(130)
