Kentucky at Mississippi State: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kentucky Wildcats at Mississippi State Bulldogs (-10.5, 56)

Mississippi State looks for its fifth straight victory over Kentucky when the Southeastern Conference cross-divisional rivals square off in primetime Thursday. The Bulldogs are after the first five-game winning streak by either team in the series, which has seen the last five meetings decided by an average of eight points. "I know our guys look forward to this game and treat it as a little bit of a rivalry game for us," Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. "… You know it's a team you're playing every year."

The Wildcats have dropped four straight - all against teams that were ranked in the top 25 at the time - and had a week off following a 48-7 trouncing versus No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 12. "I think having a chance to recoup physically and mentally I think should help us going into this game," first-year Kentucky coach Mark Stoops told reporters. "I think our preparation has been very good. I feel like the team is in a good place right now." Mississippi State has alternated losses and wins all season and shoots for its first winning streak after a 21-20 victory over Bowling Green on Oct. 12.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN.

LINE: Mississippi State opened as a 9.5-point home favorite and moved to -10.5. The total jumped from 55 points to 56.

WEATHER: Temperatures in the low 50s with partly cloudy skies and winds blowing WNW at 2 mph.

ABOUT KENTUCKY (1-5, 0-3 SEC, 2-4 ATS): The Wildcats expected quarterback Jalen Whitlow to miss at least one game after spraining his left ankle against Alabama, but he returned to practice Monday and could be ready to start. Fellow sophomore Maxwell Smith will get the nod if Whitlow can't play, taking the reins of an offense that has been balanced, but far from explosive. Kentucky has been tough against the pass but allows 213.3 rushing yards per game - 107th among the 123 FBS teams, which might spell trouble against the Bulldogs' strong ground game.

ABOUT MISSISSIPPI STATE (3-3, 0-2, 3-3 ATS): The Bulldogs have been a bit of a one-man show on offense, with quarterback Dak Prescott leading the team with 457 rushing yards and eight touchdowns to go along with 890 passing yards and three TDs. Prescott splits time with Tyler Russell, who missed time with a concussion but has played the past two games and threw for 248 yards and two TDs in those contests. The defense was torched in a 59-26 loss to LSU on Oct. 5 but has held its own against dangerous offenses in losses to Oklahoma State and Auburn.

TRENDS:

* Wildcats are 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings in Mississippi State.
* Road team is 6-1 ATS in their last seven meetings.
* Wildcats are 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Mississippi State has rushed for 200 yards or more in five consecutive games for the first time since 2010. The Bulldogs rank 23rd in the nation with 214.3 rushing yards per game.

2. The Wildcats have been bold on fourth down, going for it 13 times and converting nine. The 69.2 percent conversion rate ranks 15th in the nation (eighth among teams with at least 10 attempts).

3. Prescott has topped 100 yards rushing in two straight games and three of the past four and has at least one rushing touchdown in five straight contests.

Marshall at Middle Tennessee: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marshall Thundering Herd at Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders (+8.5, 56.5)

The Marshall Thundering Herd have plenty of momentum following a dramatic come-from-behind win over Florida Atlantic, and get a struggling opponent next as they face the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders at Floyd Stadium Thursday night. The Thundering Herd rode Justin Haig's last-second 41-yard field goal to a 24-23 triumph over Florida Atlantic on Oct. 12. The Blue Raiders have lost three in a row and were thumped 34-7 at North Texas in their last game.

The Middle Tennessee offense has scuffled mightily since a 42-35 overtime win over Florida Atlantic, scoring just 34 points during its skid. That's a bad omen for a Blue Raiders team facing off against a Marshall defense that ranks 14th in the nation in points against per game (18.8). It's the first-ever meeting between the teams in Murfeesboro, and the first time they've faced off since Marshall prevailed 49-14 back on Nov. 26, 1994.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1

LINE: Marshall has held steady as an 8.5-point favorite, with the over/under set at 56.5.

WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the high-40s under partly cloudy skies. Wind will blow diagonally out of the northwest at 5 mph.

ABOUT MARSHALL (4-2, 2-0 Conference USA, 4-2 ATS): Marshall is wrapping up a bizarre scheduling quirk that has it playing just its third game in a 33-day stretch Thursday - with a 34-10 win over UTSA on Oct. 5 and the victory over Owls a week later representing its only game action since Sept. 21. The players admit it's good to have everyone rested but they're itching to hit the field. "Sometimes in practice, you'd see a bunch of (non-contact jerseys)," center Chris Jasperse told the Charleston Gazette. "Now, hey, let's go play. It's good for us to have everybody out there, ready to go."

ABOUT MIDDLE TENNESSEE (3-4, 1-2, 2-5 ATS): The Blue Raiders know that the Marshall offense revolves around standout quarterback Rakeem Cato, who has looked ordinary since a five-touchdown outburst in Marshall's season opener but is still one of the conference's top QBs. "He is a very dynamic player," Middle Tennessee head coach Rick Stockstill told the team's official website. "He can make every throw and he's got a great arm. He's just a phenomenal player." The Blue Raider defense has been impressive, ranking second in the nation with 20 takeaways.

TRENDS

* Marshall is 2-9-2 ATS in its last 13 road games against teams with losing home records.
* Middle Tennessee is 4-0 ATS in its last four games following a bye week.
* Over is 11-4 in the Thundering Herd's previous 15 conference games.
* Under is 5-1 in the Blue Raiders' last six games against teams with winning records.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Marshall has won both head-to-head meetings.

2. Cato has thrown four touchdown passes and four interceptions in three road games so far in 2013.

3. Senior QB Logan Kilgore is expected to get the start for Middle Tennessee despite being replaced by Austin Grammer against North Texas.

Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

College football trends to think about with Week 8 upon us:

-- Illinois covered twice in its last dozen games with Michigan State.

-- Road team covered 10 of last 12 Alabama-Tennessee games.

-- Stanford covered 13 of last 17 tries as a road favorite.

-- Nevada won its last eight games vs UNLV (6-2 vs spread).

-- Wyoming covered 15 of its last 19 games as a road underdog.

-- Home side covered 15 of last 18 Georgia Tech-Virginia games.


*****

Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Our NFL List of 13..........

13) Buffalo Bills play a rookie QB every week, but have scored 20+ points in every game; can they put a scare into the Saints on Bourbon Street?

12) Kent State and Akron are home underdogs in MAC games Saturday; MAC home dogs are 1-11 vs spread so far this season.

11) Jaguars are going to play one “home” game a year in London for the next few years; rumor has it they’re sending Dallas over the pond to play the Jags next year. That should go over well with season ticket holders in northern Florida.

10) Oregon State lost to I-AA Eastern Washington last month; in the past when the Beavers have a bad loss like that, they’ve pulled a pretty big upset later in the year. OSU hosts Stanford this week; could this be it?

9) Giants lost their last eight road games; Eagles lost their last nine home games. Something has to give Sunday at the Linc. Philly is 0-11 vs spread in its last 11 home games.

8) Clemson had to be a little shocked at how badly Florida State beat them last week; now the Tigers hit the road to play an improved Maryland team. Clemson better be alert this week, not let the Seminoles beat them twice.

7) Never thought I’d be happy to see the Rams sign Brady Quinn as a backup QB, but you see the names “Tebow” and “Favre” thrown around in wire reports, you’ll gladly take Quinn, who will wear #3.

If you’re going to buy a Rams’ jersey with Quinn on the back, get a number 94 jersey, for star DE Robert Quinn.

6) Weird week in the SEC, with few teams having week off and several other teams playing stiffs. Bama-Tennessee and South Carolina-Mizzou are the only decent games on the league’s slate this week.

5) Going back to LY’s playoff loss to Green Bay, Vikings have started four different QB’s in their last seven games. Yikes. When Christian Ponder starts Sunday place in place of Josh Freeman (concussion), it’ll be three different starting QBs in their last three games. Not good.

4) College teams send out a 2-deep depth chart for each side of the ball to the media during the week; USC’s 2-deep offensive chart has seven walk-ons out of 22 players listed. Utah beat Stanford, can they upset the Trojans in the Coliseum?

3) Dallas-Detroit figures to be high-scoring game, as all Detroit home games are. Cowboy defense has played better since a 51-48 loss to Denver.

2) Fresno State is still unbeaten, despite winning games 52-51 and 41-40 this year; the Bulldogs visit San Diego State late Saturday night trying to stay unbeaten- they're a fun team to watch.

1) Chiefs can get to the halfway mark 8-0 if they beat Cleveland Sunday. Browns are giving Jason Campbell his first start of the year, the third QB to start for the Browns in eight games. I hope Campbell writes a book someday; he’s played for so many teams and so many coaches, he must have some great stories to tell.

Pac-12 Report - Week 9

October 24, 2013

The Pac-12 had a marquee games of its own last week, and unlikely Florida State-Clemson in the ACC, the UCLA-Stanford game was a pretty decent contest. In the end, the Cardinal bumped the Bruins from the ranks of the unbeaten, leaving only Oregon as the west coast team with serious national championship aspirations.

It will be an interesting week in the Pac-12. Bettors have been pounding Arizona State overs this season, but they are on a bye. And Washington State has been surprising effective against the spread, covering six of their eight contests. But they, too, are off this weekend. However, there is still plenty of money to be made within the Pac-12.

2013 PAC-12 STANDINGS

Team SU Conference ATS Over/Under

Arizona 4-2 1-2 3-3 2-4

Arizona State 5-2 3-1 4-3 6-1

California 1-6 0-4 0-7 3-3-1

Colorado 3-3 0-3 3-3 4-2

Oregon 7-0 4-0 6-1 5-2

Oregon State 6-1 4-0 4-3 5-2

Southern California 4-3 1-2 2-5 2-5

Stanford 6-1 4-1 3-4 4-3

UCLA 5-1 2-1 5-1 2-4

Utah 4-3 1-3 4-3 3-4

Washington 4-3 1-3 4-3 3-4

Washington State 4-4 2-3 6-2 4-3-1


Utah at Southern California (Pac-12 Network, 4:00 p.m. ET)
The Utes hit the road to meet the Trojans in a battle of 4-3 teams. Utah upended Stanford at Rice-Eccles two weeks ago, but then lost straight-up and ATS on the road in Tucson last weekend. They are now just 1-4 ATS in their past five road contests, and 1-6 ATS in their past seven Pac-12 games overall. Plus, Utah is 2-5 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record. USC is also 2-5 ATS in their past seven conference tilts, and just 3-9 ATS in their past 12 against a team with a winning record. If you're to pay attention to this game, it might be because of the total. The total is set at 54, and the trends all seem to indicate the under. The under is 4-0 in Utah's past four outings, and 6-2 in their past eight road games. The under is 7-2 in USC's past nine games, and 34-16-1 in their past 51 home games.

UCLA at Oregon (ESPN, 7:00 p.m. ET)
The difficult schedule continues for UCLA. The Bruins were dumped 24-10 in Palo Alto, and now they need to contend with the high-octane Ducks. This game could be fun, and hopefully the scoreboard operator at Autzen Stadium has limbered up his/her fingers. UCLA is 5-1 ATS in their past six games, and 4-1 ATS in their past five road games against a team with a winning home mark. Meanwhile, Oregon is 14-3 ATS in their past 17, 9-2 ATS in their past 11 conference battles, and 6-1 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record. The only real negative trend is Oregon is 1-5 ATS in the past six home games against a team with a winning road record, and they failed to cover last weekend at home against Washington State. Does that mean a 23-point line against QB Brett Hundley and the Bruins is a little too much? We'll soon see.

Arizona at Colorado (Pac-12 Network, 8:00 p.m. ET)
Colorado opened the season 2-0 SU and ATS, and things looked to be turning around after a dismal season last year. Then, the floods came in the state of Colorado, their home game against Fresno State was cancelled, and after a three-week break, the Buffs looked like their former selves. Colorado was waxed at Oregon State. They were waxed at home against Oregon. And they were waxed at Arizona State. They did step out of conference to pound Charleston Southern last weekend, but back inside the Pac-12, they could very well be waxed again this weekend. The Wildcats are looking pretty sharp, beating a solid Utah team last week. RB Ka'Deem Carey is piecing together another strong season, averaging six yards per tote. Arizona routed Colorado 56-31 Nov. 10, 2012, and it wouldn't be shocking to see a similar result here. While Arizona is 2-5 ATS in the past seven Pac-12 games, Colorado is just 7-21 ATS in their past 28 conference tilts. Plus, Colorado is just 4-10 ATS in their past 14 at home.

Stanford at Oregon State (ESPN, 10:30 p.m. ET)
I've actually watched each of the past six Oregon State games, and they are a fun team to watch. QB Sean Mannion is one of the best, and perhaps most underrated, quarterbacks in the nation, and WR Brandin Cooks is equally efficient and extraordinary. And with RB Storm Woods back from concussion, this offense is hitting on all cylinders again. They'll be put to the test against a solid Stanford defense, which limited UCLA to just 10 points last week. The Cardinal are 17-8 ATS in their past 25 games against a team with a winning record, and 35-17-1 ATS in the past 53 games overall. Plus, they're 19-7-1 ATS in the past 27 road games, and 20-8-1 ATS in their past 29 Pac-12 tilts. Oregon State is 4-0 ATS in the past four conference battles, and 9-3-1 ATS in their past 13 games against a team with a winning record. Head-to-head, the home team is 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings. However, the favorite is 5-2 ATS in the past seven, and the Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their past five meetings with the Beavers. However, Stanford has covered just two of their past eight trips to Corvallis.

California at Washington (FOX Sports 1, 11:00 p.m. ET)
The Cal Bears have been horrendous, and last weekend they were crushed at home by Oregon State. Washington has dropped three straight at Stanford, home against Oregon and at Arizona State. The Huskies are going to be awfully ornery, and they could take their frustrations out on the conference's punching bag. Cal has failed to cover in each of its seven games. while Washington is 3-1 ATS at home this season. Washington is also 13-3 ATS in their past 16 home games, and 9-2 ATS in their past 11 against teams with a losing record. In this series, the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the past seven meetings, but Cal is 0-4 ATS in their past four meetings with U-Dub.

Byes
Arizona State, Washington State

ACC Report - Week 9

October 24, 2013

Last weekend was the game of the year, and only one Atlantic Coast Contender decided to show up. The Florida State Seminoles cemented their place in the national championship discussion for the remainder of the season, thumping Clemson in Death Valley by a 51-14 score. And, to be honest, it wasn't even that close. The Tigers scored with the second-team offense in the closing minutes, making those who had the 'over' pretty pleased.

As a result of their resounding win, the Seminoles found themselves ranked No. 2 in the first installment of the BCS standings behind defending national champion Alabama. It's uncertain if that can or will last, but FSU certainly looked like a title contender last weekend. Will they be able to keep that same kind of focus with a visit from North Carolina State this weekend? They have another huge game coming up against the ACC's only other unbeaten team, the rival Miami Hurricanes, next weekend. It will be interesting to see how the Seminoles handle their success.

2013 ACC STANDINGS

Team SU Conference ATS Over/Under

Boston College 3-3 1-2 4-2 2-4

Clemson 6-1 4-1 3-4 4-3

Duke 5-2 1-2 5-2 3-4

Florida State 6-0 4-0 5-1 6-0

Georgia Tech 4-3 3-2 4-3 4-3

Maryland 5-2 1-2 4-3 4-3

Miami (Fla.) 6-0 2-0 4-2 3-3

North Carolina 1-5 0-3 2-4 1-5

North Carolina State 3-3 0-3 3-3 1-5

Pittsburgh 4-2 2-2 2-4 3-3

Syracuse 3-4 1-2 4-3 4-3

Virginia 2-5 0-3 3-4 5-2

Virginia Tech 6-1 3-0 3-3-1 1-5-1

Wake Forest 4-3 2-2 3-4 1-6


Wake Forest at Miami, Fl. (ESPNU - 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Hurricanes snuck out of Chapel Hill last Thursday with a narrow win at North Carolina, keeping their record unblemished. It will be interesting to see how the 'Canes respond at home against another inferior conference opponent, especially with a huge game against rival Florida State looming next weekend in Tallahassee. This might be viewed as a 'trap' game, but Wake Forest is just 3-7 ATS in their past 10 games, and 1-4 ATS in their past five road contests. The Demon Deacons are also 2-8 ATS in their past 10 games against a team with a winning record. Miami is 5-0 ATS in their past five against a team with a winning record, and 8-1 ATS in their past nine home games. Plus, the Canes are an impressive 14-3 ATS in their past 17 ACC games. Miami leads the all-time series 7-3, and they have won six straight meetings.

Georgia Tech at Virginia (12:30 p.m. ET)
This is a very interesting game that bettors need to pay attention to closely. The Yellow Jackets are installed as a 10-point favorite, and the early indications are the public is piling on Georgia Tech at a 2-to-1 clip. That might be because Georgia Tech is 8-2 ATS in their past 10 conference games, including a 56-0 dusting of Syracuse last weekend at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Yellow Jackets are 5-2 ATS in their past seven against a team with a losing record, and 9-4 ATS in their past 13 overall. Meanwhile, UVA comes in just 7-20 ATS in their past 27 against teams with a winning record, and 3-9 ATS in their past 12 ACC games. The Cavs are also just 2-10-1 ATS in their past 13 at Scott Stadium. However, keep in mind that UVA is 6-1 ATS in their past seven home games against Georgia Tech, the favorite has covered eight of the past 11 meetings in this series, and the home team is an impressive 12-3 ATS in the past 15 meetings. Which trends do you like more? With conflicting information, I like to think this game screams stay away from the line. The total sits at 47, and the over is 5-2 in GT's past seven road games. The over is also 5-1 in UVA's past six, and 4-0 in their past four home games. The over is also 4-1 in Virginia's past five against a team with a winning mark.

Pittsburgh at Navy (CBSSN, 1:00 p.m. ET)
The Panthers look for their fifth win of the season on the road in Annapolis, while the Midshipmen look to keep their heads above water, pun totally intended. The Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their past seven, while the Middies are 4-9 ATS in their past 13 home games. There are no really good trends here, other than Navy being 2-0 ATS at home, while Pittsburgh is 0-2 ATS on the road. The total is listed at 51 1/2, and the 'under' has come through in each of the past three for Pittsburgh after the over was 3-0 in their first three contests. The under has cashed in four of the past five for the Midshipmen.

Boston College at North Carolina (3:30 p.m. ET)
The Tar Heels are still stinging after its latest defeat at home against unbeaten Miami. UNC nearly had a much-needed signature win on a national stage, but instead slipped to 1-5 on the season. For those thinking Boston College might be a pushover, and the type of team for the Tar Heels to play to get back on track, think again. QB Chase Rettig, RB Andre Williams and WR Alex Amidon are a three-headed monster on offense. In fact, Williams leads the conference in rushing with 838 yards, and Amidon has posted 10 career 100-yard receiving games. BC is a very disciplined team, too, committing a conference-low 22 penalties with just six turnovers. BC is 0-3 all-time in Chapel Hill, however, so if they keep the Heels down, it will be a first for them. BC is 4-1 ATS in their past five conference games, but 7-20 ATS in their past 27 against a team with a losing record, and 1-7 ATS in their past eight on the road. UNC is 9-3 ATS in their past 12 at home, including last week against Miami. The under could be the best play here, as the under is 20-7-1 in BC's past 28 ACC games, and 36-14-1 in their past 51 road games. The under is 5-1 in UNC's past six, and 4-1 in their past five ACC games.

Duke at Virginia Tech (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. ET)
The Blue Devils are back in the state of Virginia for a second straight week, looking for similar results to the ones they found in Charlottesville last weekend. Duke spotted UVA a 22-0 lead last week, only to storm back with 35 unanswered points for a 35-22 win. Virginia Tech is a lot better of a team, though, and falling behind early would be fatal. And the Hokies are rested, coming off a bye. The Blue Devils are 31st in the nation in offense, and QB Brandon Connette, while only a part-time player, has managed 19 touchdown passes, third-most in the ACC behind only Florida State's Jameis Winston and Clemson's Tajh Boyd. Duke can certainly score, but their defense has been a little flaky. In the last meeting Oct. 13, Clemson won 41-20. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the past four meetings, and Duke is just 3-7 ATS in their past 10 road games. The Blue Devils are also 1-6 ATS in their past seven road games against a team with a winning record, while the Hokies are 6-0 ATS in their past six home games agaisnt a team with a winning road record.

Clemson at Maryland (ESPN, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Clemson was absolutely buried at home, and now they must pick themselves up off the mat and get back on track. A sluggish start wouldn't be shocking in this one given their embarrassing loss to FSU at home last week. While Clemson is 6-1 ATS in their past seven road games, they are just 1-5 ATS in their past six against a team with a winning record. Maryland is 4-1 ATS in their past five home games, but just 4-13 ATS in their past 17 ACC games. The under might be the best play. The under is 13-4 in Clemson's past 17, and 9-2 in their past 11 road games against a team with a winning home record. The under is also 6-1 in the past seven meetings in this series, and 5-2 in the past seven meetings

North Carolina State at Florida State (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Will history repeat itself? The Seminoles looked to be hitting on all cylinders last season before a trip to Raleigh sent them tumbling. The 'Noles fell 17-16 at Carter-Finley Stadium, and have a little payback to do. FSU crushed Clemson last week, and face Miami next week, so could there be a little bit of a lull? Or is this a different FSU team? NC State is coming off a bye, but they also were pounded by a terrible Syracuse team, 24-10, in their last outing. NC State is 1-7-1 ATS in their past nine road games, and 1-5-1 ATS in their past seven road games against a team with a winning home record. FSU is 4-0 ATS in their past four home games and 6-1 ATS in their past seven overall. The only thing to worry about here is a hangover/look-ahead situation.

Byes
