Baylor vs Oklahoma

Baylor vs Oklahoma : A Big 12 bout kicks off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET, when Oklahoma hosts Baylor. Both teams won their conference openers, but have loftier goals in mind. While Baylor is hoping to make a run for the Big 12 crown, nothing short of a College Football Playoff berth will suffice for Oklahoma. In the latest Oklahoma vs. Baylor odds, the Sooners are 23.5-point favorites, down a field goal from the opener, while the over-under on total points scored is 68.

With such a huge spread, you’ll want to check out what SportsLine’s advanced computer model is predicting before you lay your own Oklahoma vs. Baylor picks.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. In the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors.

It’s also made some huge calls on its top-rated picks this season, including in Week 2, when it backed Kentucky (+13.5) against Florida in the Wildcats’ first win over the Gators in 31 years. Overall, it’s hitting over 60 percent of its top-rated college football picks in the last two weeks and finished Week 4 on a blistering 8-2 run. Anybody following it finished way, way up.

Now the model has simulated every single play of Oklahoma vs. Baylor. We can tell you the Under hits in 52 percent of simulations, but it has also locked in a strong against the spread pick that you can bank on well over 50 percent of the time. This pick is available only at SportsLine.

The model knows the Sooners were lucky to remain undefeated after being outplayed at home in the second half against Army.

The Sooners have seen their offensive output diminish on a weekly basis: 63, 49, 37 and most recently 28. Granted, the competition has been stiffer, but the offensive struggles versus the Black Knights were telling. Luckily for them, the Sooners were able to pull off a victory and remain undefeated.

For the season, Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray has already eclipsed 1,000 yards passing and 11 touchdowns while rushing for another 242 and three touchdowns. The Sooners’ explosive offense also features a solid ground game led by running back Trey Sermon, who is gobbling up yardage at 5.9 yards per attempt.

But just because Oklahoma features an explosive offense that can light up the scoreboard doesn’t mean it can cover a massive spread at home against Baylor.

Baylor’s Charlie Brewer has proven to be a legitimate dual-threat quarterback this season. In fact, he’s amassed 862 passing yards and six touchdowns while adding over 125 rushing yards and two more scores on the ground. And he’s coming off an efficient performance last week against Kansas where he completed 19-of-27 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.

The Bears also boast a 7-1 against the spread record in their last eight games against Oklahoma on the road.

So which side of the Oklahoma vs. Baylor spread hits in almost 55 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to be all over, all from the proven computer model that has returned over $4,000 for $100 bettors.

Florida State vs Louisville

Florida State vs Louisville: Louisville is supposed to have a fun and exciting offense – it’s a Bobby Petrino offense, after all. It’s saying a lot to be a bad ACC offense with Florida State sputtering so much, but the Cardinals are really, really struggling.

The O is miserable on third downs, and the D is worse – the Cardinals are last among all ACC teams in third down conversions on both sides of the ball.

The offense is the biggest issue, though, averaging an ACC-low 17 points per game with no ground game and no pop down the field. The Cardinals only managed three points against Virginia and have yet to score more than 20 against an FBS team.

FSU might have its issues, but the defense hasn’t been bad. This isn’t the week the UofL O is ready to blow up.

Fortunately for the Cardinals …

The Florida State offense hasn’t found its groove yet, either.

The passing game finally kicked in with 352 yards in the win over Northern Illinois, but the Cardinal secondary is good enough to keep the Noles from blowing up through the air for a second straight week.

It also helps that there’s no running game to worry about.

FSU has the talent in the backfield, but behind this mediocre line, it just can’t get this dog to hunt. Even with the great backs, the ground attack has yet to hit the 150-yard mark.

Making matters worse is the fumbling issue. The Noles have turned it over 11 times in the four games with six fumbles, losing three in last week’s win over Northern Illinois. The Cardinal offense needs all of the easy chances it can get.

– Free daily ATS lock pick just released: ‘100% confidence release!’

Something has to give with these two shockingly bad teams.

Louisville is trying to find the right mix, but the offense simply can’t score on a regular basis. The defense has been able to hold its own over the last few weeks, but Deondre Francois and the passing game should be just good enough to crank out a few scoring drives.

Neither team will run the ball, and FSU has a better passing game. The Nole defensive front will hold its own just enough to get by.

Tennessee vs Georgia

Tennessee vs Georgia :SEC action is in full bloom Saturday, including second-ranked Georgia hosting Tennessee. Kickoff from Sanford Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. ET for this game on CBS. The Bulldogs have mowed down their early competition so far, outscoring their first four opponents 178-53, while the Vols enter play at 2-2 after a crushing 47-21 loss to Florida.

In the latest Georgia vs. Tennessee odds, the Bulldogs opened as 32.5-point favorites and are now laying 30.5. The Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas believes will be scored, has shrunk from 55 to 53. Before you make any Georgia vs. Tennessee picks, you need to hear what SportsLine college football expert Emory Hunt has to say.

Hunt is the founder of Football Gameplan, which has been supplying analysis of all levels of college football since 2007. Loaded with decades of college football expertise, including playing running back at Louisiana-Lafayette, Hunt is an incredible combined 9-3 in his most recent Tennessee and Georgia picks. Now, Hunt has scrutinized Vols vs. Bulldogs from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he’s revealing only at SportsLine.

Hunt knows that while the Vols lost by three scores last week against Florida, the defense allowed just three total points in the previous two games against UTEP and ETSU.

Only one of the last seven meetings between Georgia and Tennessee would have covered this spread, last year’s 41-0 win by Georgia in Athens. Tennessee won the 2016 and 2015 clashes outright by a combined 10 points and turned the ball over six times against the Gators. The Vols are unlikely to be that careless with the ball again.

But just because the Vols have hung with Georgia historically doesn’t mean they’ll do it again on Saturday.

The Bulldogs are loaded with talent and poised to contend again this year. While it’s possible that Georgia could suffer an emotional letdown after a big road win at Missouri, coach Kirby Smart should have his team ready to go against a hated rival.

Georgia’s offense begins with quarterback Jack Fromm. For the season, he has nine touchdown passes against two interceptions and is completing 72.5 percent of his passes. While not much of a threat to take off with the ball as the pocket is collapsing, he shows tremendous poise in pressure situations and is blessed with strong field awareness.

Georgia has scored over 40 points every game this season and held two teams to under 10 points, including a shutout of Austin Peay in the opener.

We can tell you Hunt is leaning toward the Under, but he has uncovered a crucial X-factor that will determine the spread outcome of this game — and he’s only sharing it over at SportsLine.

So which side of the spread should you back for Tennessee vs. Georgia? And what will be the crucial X-factor in this eagerly anticipated contest? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to be all over, all from the expert who’s riding a spectacular 9-3 streak involving the Volunteers and Bulldogs.

Syracuse vs Clemson

Syracuse vs Clemson : This might be a matchup of the two best teams in the ACC, with the three-time defending champion Tigers (4-0, 1-0) playing host to the surprising Orange (4-0, 1-0). Syracuse is the only ACC team to beat the Tigers since 2016, and its fast start has come as a surprise, with the Orange.

Over the past two years, Nagel boasts a record of 13-4 in against the spread picks involving Clemson or Syracuse.

Last season, he was all over Clemson’s stretch run to the College Football Playoff and advised followers to back the Tigers as 10-point favorites against Miami in the ACC title game. The result: Clemson rolled to a 38-3 victory, and anyone who followed Nagel’s advice pocketed an easy winner.

Nagel knows the Tigers will be seeking revenge against a Syracuse club that dealt them their lone loss in the 2017 regular season. Clemson seemed out of sorts and the Orange took advantage for a 27-24 home win as 24-point underdogs. This season,

Their quarterback situation now has clarity because standout freshman Trevor Lawrence has been named the starter moving forward. Lawrence got the nod after he ignited the offense with 176 yards and four touchdowns against the Yellow Jackets.

Nagel has analyzed all the key factors in Clemson vs. Syracuse and unearthed a critical x-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. He’s sharing what it is, and who to back, only at SportsLine.

Louisiana vs Alabama

Louisiana vs Alabama: NCAA College Football Alabama starts a stretch of four straight games against unranked opponents and has won an FBS-record 76 games in a row against teams outside the Top 25. Louisiana-Lafayette seeking its first win in 43 tries against teams who were members of the Southeastern Conference at the time.

Louisiana-Lafayette’s red zone offense versus Alabama’s red zone defense. Only the Ragin’ Cajuns and UCLA have scored touchdowns on every trip inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Louisiana-Lafayette is 10 for 10. Alabama opponents have scored on six of 10 trips into the red zone with four touchdowns.

Louisiana-Lafayette: RB Trey Ragas leads the Sun Belt Conference in rushing at 98.0 yards per game. He has topped 100 yards twice in three games.

The teams haven’t met since 1990, when Alabama won 25-6 in the Tide’s lone visit to Lafayette. Alabama coach Nick Saban led LSU to a 48-0 win in 2002. … First-year Louisiana-Lafayette coach Billy Napier was Alabama’s wide receivers coach from 2013-16 and an offensive analyst in 2011. Saban improved to 14-0 against his former assistants last week against Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M. … The Ragin’ Cajuns are 1-27 against ranked teams. The lone victory came against No. 25 Texas A&M, then a member of the Big 12, in 1996.

The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will look to pull off a huge upset after falling back to .500 at 2-2 with a 30-28 loss to Coastal Carolina in their last outing. Andre Nunez has thrown for 541 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception in completing 72.3% of his pass attempts while.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will look to stay atop the college football rankings after improving to 4-0 with a 45-23 win over Texas A&M in their last outing. Tua Tagovailoa has thrown for 1,033 yards and 12 touchdowns on 58 of 80 passing while Najee Harris has a team-high 246 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns and Damien Harris is right behind with 230 rushing yards of his own.

Louisiana is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games against the SEC. Alabama is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against the Sun Belt and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.

I give up with trying to figure out Alabama, as when I go against them they cover, and when I go with them they don’t cover. However, fool me again because I can’t go against Alabama here. The Cajuns are a decent team in the Sun Belt, but going against the top team in the country that’s already beaten a solid Ole Miss squad by 55 and hung up 45 on a very good Texas A&M team is something completely different. This line is insane and we are leaving it wide open for a backdoor cover, but I don’t see anything other than an Alabama rout in this one so I’ll begrudgingly lay the points.
