Top College Football Expert Picks Of The Week Are Easy as ABC and 1, 2, 3!
Wisconsin Badgers (3-0) at Michigan State Spartans (2-0)When: Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Where: Spartan Stadium
NCAAF Line: Michigan State -6
While I really like Wisconsin Badgers this season and genuinely believe they could challenge for the Big Ten title, for me, the Michigan State Spartans are the pick to win and narrowly cover the spread, especially after seeing how much the Badgers struggled the last time out. Wisconsin has gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings against the Spartans. Conversely, Michigan State has gone 3-0-1 ATS in their last four conference games.
The Spartans win and narrowly cover!
My Pick: Michigan State 28 Wisconsin 21
USC at No. 24 UtahWhen: 9:00 PM ET, Friday, September 23, 2016
Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City, Utah
NCAAF Odds: Utah -1.5
Despite all of their roster talent, the USC Trojans are a complete and utter mess right now. Southern Cal has gone 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and a dismal 0-5 ATS in their last five road games. I know the Utah Utes are just 1-5 ATS in their last six games, but they’ve also alternated SU wins and losses against USC the last three seasons – and it’s their turn to win after falling 42-24 as a 6-point road dog a year ago.
With the spread being just one point, I say Utah wins outright at home to cover!
My Pick: Utah 28 USC 24
No. 7 Stanford at UCLAWhen: 8:00 PM ET, Saturday, September 24, 2016
Where: Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California
NCAAF Odds: Stanford -3
For me, the Stanford Cardinal are the easy pick to win and cover the college football betting line despite being on the road. Stanford is a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last six games and an encouraging 4-1 ATS in its last five games on the road. Conversely, UCLA is just 2-4 SU and 1-5 ATS in its last six games. More importantly, Stanford has the big edge in coaching and the best player on the field in Christian McCaffery.
Stanford wins and cover the spread with room to spare!
My Pick: Stanford 31 UCLA 21
