Ok State +6 ✅   Over 61 ❌ - Oklahoma ain’t ready for the SEC

Wash/USC Over 76.5 ✅- Wish I tagged UW on this

This week’s Outright Dog Record: 2-1     +1.45u

Overall Outright Dog Record: 7-6    +3.7u


Michigan (-4.5) @ Penn State

O/u: 45.5

Big Noon kickoff, the greatest prime time slot, or so they want you to think. Michigan has looked like the best and most dominant team this year. JJ McCarthy has proved me wrong about his play and he’s deserving of being in New York for the Heisman.

Drew Allar has been OK but this is once again a tough defense that they won’t have enough for. If you watched the Ohio State game this is going to be a repeat of it and maybe worse.

Michigan -4.5     Penn St Team Total under 20


Utah @ Washington (-8.5)

O/u: 50

Don’t let Utah’s performance last week fool you. They’re offense is still not good. Washington is coming off of an emotional win putting up a lot of points on USC but I see not reason why they don’t roll here with the game at home.

Washington -8.5


Tennessee (-2) @ Missouri

O/u: 57

Very tricky line, Missouri has been a feel good story and played Georgia close the entire way. Tennessee may be a beneficiary of good fortune but I’m going to trust the Alphanerd to cook. I’ll take Mizzou at home.

Missouri +2


Ole Miss @ Georgia (-11)

O/u: 58

I don’t think I’ve picked a Georgia game correctly this year. Maybe this week is different. Kiffin hasn’t had the greatest week with the publicity around the mental health stuff but I think he also got a raw deal on the audio getting leaked.

Besides that, Ole Miss might be the most fraudulent team in the top 15 (besides Tennessee). They may put some points on the board, but they aren’t going to stop Carson Beck and the Dawg offense.

Georgia -11     Georgia Team Total over 34.5


USC @ Oregon (-15.5)

O/u: 76

I’ve stated that I really like this Oregon team and think they may be Natty type good but when you look at their schedule, you think, who have they really beat? The answer is only really Utah. That makes me hesitant to lay the points but the physicality of the Ducks offensive line will take care of business. Caleb Williams will get his, but it won’t be enough.

Oregon -15.5      Over 76


New Orleans Saints (-3) @ Minnesota Vikings

O/u: 41

Josh Dobbs came in and shocked Athur Smith’s Falcons after only being on the team for less than 5 days. Now that he’s been in the building he might play a little better. If this wasn’t the Saints defense I would probably like Minnesota but it’s pumpkin time for the Passtronaut.

Saints -3


San Francisco 49ers (-3) @ Jacksonville Jaguars

O/u: 45

Both teams are coming off of a bye and both are getting healthy. The Niners needed the rest BAD but there’s something about these Jags that I continue to like. Dougy P and TLaw Super Bowl?

Jaguars +3


Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens (-6.5)

O/u: 38

The Ravens have championship aspirations and if they want to continue that then sweeping their division rival Browns needs to be on the menu. Give me Lamar in another statement game.

Ravens -6.5


Green Bay Packers @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-3)

O/u: 39

Yuck this game looks stinky! Truzz Mike Tomlin

Steelers -3


Detroit Lions (-3) @ Los Angeles Chargers

O/u: 48.5

Very excited to see this game. The Lions have been on a roll lately and get David Montgomery back to complete their two headed monster at running back. Chargers are gonna do what they do and that’s score points but lose. I think this line is short enough to take Detroit.

Lions -3    Over 48.5
