Big Ten Report - Week 6

October 4, 2013

Only six of the Big Ten schools were in action last weekend and two of the games were non-conference affairs. Illinois defeated Miami Ohio 50-14 in wire-to-wire fashion at home and Purdue was embarrassed at home as a 3 ½-point home underdog to Northern Illinois, 55-24. In conference play, Iowa went on the road and handed Minnesota its first loss of the season with a 23-7 victory and Ohio State held off Wisconsin 31-24, bettors seeing this result end in a push (Buckeyes -7). The total went 2-2 overall.

2013 BIG TEN STANDINGS

Team SU Conference ATS Over/Under

Illinois 3-1 0-0 3-1 3-1

Indiana 2-2 0-0 2-2 3-1

Iowa 4-1 1-0 3-2 3-2

Michigan 4-0 0-0 2-2 2-2

Michigan State 3-1 0-0 1-2-1 1-3

Minnesota 4-1 0-1 3-2 3-2

Nebraska 3-1 0-0 2-2 3-1

Northwestern 4-0 0-0 2-2 2-2

Ohio State 5-0 1-0 3-1-1 3-2

Penn State 3-1 0-0 2-2 2-2

Purdue 1-4 0-1 1-4 3-2

Wisconsin 3-2 1-1 4-0-1 2-3


Ohio State (-7, 59 ½) at Northwestern – 8:00 p.m. ET
Ohio State starting QB Braxton Miller returned to the field with a bang Saturday night, firing four touchdown passes and completing 17-of-25. Most impressive in last week’s seven-point win over Wisconsin was the defense. The Bucks held Wisconsin's power run game to just 104 yards on 3.9 YPC (UW was averaging 349 rush yards per game prior to last week). They must now regroup after that huge win at home as they’ll face another test this week at Northwestern. The Wildcats are off of a bye week. They seemed to sleepwalk through its game against FCS Maine two weeks ago. In that game they did not resemble the same squad that dominated Cal, Syracuse, and Western Michigan the prior three games. Against Maine they were outgained and had fewer first downs. They were never in serious danger of losing the game, but it was an odd sight to see Northwestern look so mediocre. Maybe they were flat or maybe coaches were limiting the playbook as they have this big game against Ohio State on deck. Northwestern knows it must elevate its play significantly against Ohio State in what will be the most anticipated game of the Pat Fitzgerald era. Standout RB Venric Mark will return against the Buckeyes, as Northwestern will need its zone-read game to be in top form to keep pace with Ohio State on the scoreboard. Ohio State is 28-1 all-time against Northwestern. They’re 4-0 SU & ATS the last four meetings; winning by an average score of 51-9 (Northwestern hasn’t topped 10 points in any of those meetings).

Michigan (-19 ½, 50) vs. Minnesota – 3:30 p.m. ET
No team needed the off week more than Michigan, which had plenty to clean up following near disasters against Akron and Connecticut. Michigan won't stay perfect much longer if QB Gardner keeps turning over the ball (he leads the nation with 10 turnovers). In the last game against UConn he completed just 11-of-23 passes for 97 yards with 2 INT. The defense has been great (6th ranked rush defense, 21st in total “D”) and they’ll face a Minnesota offense coming off a dreadful performance. The Gophers managed just 165 yards, 11 first downs, and 7 points in its homecoming loss to Iowa last week. It seems like Minnesota was a product of a weak nonleague schedule, as some of the small problems that surfaced against weaker competition became big problems against Iowa. Quarterback Nelson struggled with just 135 yards (1 TD 2 INT) and he didn't get much help from the run game (30 yards on 27 carries). Backup QB Leidner provided a spark in Week 4 and coach Jerry Kill might make a switch if Nelson continues to struggle. Michigan has won five straight over Minnesota by 28 PPG (5-0 ATS) and won 58-0 the last meeting in the Big House.

Nebraska (-9 ½, 60 ½) vs. Illinois – 12:00 p.m. ET
Nebraska is fresh off of its bye week following a much needed blowout victory over FCS South Dakota State. The defense still needs a lot of improvement. This unit surrendered 465 yards and 25 first downs to the Jackrabbits two weeks ago and the sample size is large enough now to show that this defense hasn’t improved from a year ago. The Huskers rank 109th in total “D” and will now take on a surprisingly efficient Illinois offense. The Illini have been the biggest surprise in the Big Ten. They completed nonleague play at 3-1 (with the lone loss to undefeated Washington) and head to Nebraska with a lot of confidence, particularly on offense. QB Scheelhaase might be the most improved player in the nation as he has 12 TD and just 3 INT on 67% passing after amassing just 4 TD and 8 INT all of last season. He did struggle against Washington though (9-of-25 passing) and will hope to improve against another strong opponent. These two haven’t met yet as Big Ten opponents. Illinois is just 2-17 SU in Big Ten openers and 0-7 SU & 2-5 ATS the last seven games as a Big Ten road underdog. Nebraska is 11-1 SU & 9-3 ATS in its last 12 home games.

Michigan State (-1.5, 38 ½) at Iowa – 12:00 p.m. ET
Iowa has won and covered three straight games and is riding some serious momentum. The Hawks had their third straight dominant performance against Minnesota to ruin its rival's homecoming. QB Jake Rudock has 5 TD and 1 INT over the last three games while RB Weisman gives this offense some serious balance. The defense has been the most impressive aspect of this team. This unit held Minnesota to just 165 yards and 11 first downs last week and now it ranks 6th in total defense and 18th in scoring defense. The only defense in the Big Ten that is arguably playing better will be across the field this weekend. Two weeks ago, Michigan State held ND to just 220 yards and 14 first downs and now ranks 1st in total defense, 3rd against the pass, and 2nd against the rush. This “D” is really, really good. But it won’t matter in the Big Ten race if they can’t get consistent results from its offense. This unit ranks 104th in yards per game and 73rd in points per game. Coach Dantonio spent time during the bye week trying to fix the issues, but there’s more than one week of practice away from solving the problem. MSU is favored at Kinnick Stadium this week despite the fact that the Spartans are 2-7 SU & ATS in the last nine trips. Iowa is 15-4 ATS in the last 19 meetings with MSU and the Hawks are 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 games as a home underdog.

Penn State (-3 ½, 63 ½) at Indiana – 12:00 p.m. ET
Both squads are off of a bye week. After suffering a home defeat vs. Central Florida on September 14th, Coach Obrien had his troops ready for redemption against Kent State in their last game. Penn State shut out Kent State and held them to 190 yards and nine first downs. Offensively this was one of the first full games that QB Hackenberg really looked like a true freshman. He completed just 13-of-35 passes for 176 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. Obrien spent the bye week working with his young QB to work out the kinks and prepare for Big Ten play and the first road test of the season. On the other side this week is Indiana, off of a much-needed bye week. Indiana was abysmal in its last game loss to Missouri. The Hoosiers fell behind early and never really got things going on offense or defense. QB Sudfeld threw three interceptions and the defense allowed Mizzou to gain 623 total yards and 33 first downs. IU’s spread attack could cause some problems for the Nittany Lions, who haven’t faced an up-tempo spread team yet this year. PSU is a perfect 16-0 SU all-time against Indiana and are 4-2 ATS in the last six trips to Memorial Stadium. The Nittany Lions are 10-1 SU & 9-2 ATS in the last 11 Big Ten road games as a favorite.

Wisconsin - BYE
The Badgers remained close with the Buckeyes, but allowed too many big plays and couldn’t get their running attack going. QB Stave had a big night with 295 passing yards and 2 TD and WR Abbrederis proved he’s one of the top receiving threats in the Big Ten with 207 receiving yards despite going against one of the nation’s top CB’s. The bye week comes at a perfect time after star RB Gordon left in the 2nd half with a knee injury. Wisconsin has now lost 11 games since the start of 2011. All of those losses were by seven points or fewer (4.6 points per loss) and three were in overtime. Wisconsin will have to overcome its deficiencies in close games if it wants another shot at a Big Ten title game (and hope for a couple of OSU losses).

Purdue - BYE
The misery continues for the Boilers. They suffered their third straight defeat of the season and their only victory is an unimpressive six-point win over FCS Indiana State. Last week was an embarrassing 24-55 setback at home against Northern Illinois. It appears the era of Rob Henry at QB is officially over as Purdue will now go with freshman Danny Etling under center. Etling completed 19-of-39 passes for 241 yards with 2 TD and 2 INT against in relief duty for Henry last week. Etling was supposedly in a redshirt season before coach Hazell brought him off the bench last week. He’ll have a bye week to get more acclimated with the offense before Nebraska travels to Purdue next week for the conference home opener.

ACC Report - Week 6

October 4, 2013

The Atlantic Coast Conference will have one heavyweight battle this weekend, and then a host of other league games which might separate the lower-tier teams from those in the upper tier. We might not be as entertained as some of the other leagues, but this weekend we will learn quite a bit about the ACC from this slate of games.

It appears that the Army-Boston College game will go on as scheduled, as there had been talk that due to the government shutdown, the Black Knights would not travel from West Point to Chestnut Hill. However, it appears that problem has been averted for now. Enjoy the weekend!


2013 ACC STANDINGS

Team SU Conference ATS Over/Under

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

Clemson 4-0 2-0 2-2 3-1

Duke 3-2 0-2 3-2 2-3

Florida State 4-0 2-0 3-1 4-0

Georgia Tech 3-1 2-1 3-1 1-3

Maryland 4-0 0-0 4-0 2-2

Miami (Fla.) 4-0 0-0 3-1 2-2

North Carolina 1-3 0-1 1-3 1-3

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

Pittsburgh 3-1 2-1 2-2 3-1

Syracuse 2-2 0-0 3-1 3-1

Virginia 2-2 0-1 2-2 2-2

Virginia Tech 4-1 1-0 1-3-1 1-3-1

Wake Forest 2-3 0-2 1-4 1-4


Maryland at Florida State (ESPN - 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Terrapins are certainly not making it easy for their ACC brethren before departing for the Big Ten next season. Maryland is 4-0, and they have been one of the most exciting teams to watch. Maryland has actually covered six straight dating back to last season, and some might be surprised to see them as a 17-point underdog heading into Tallahassee this weekend. However, Florida State QB Jameis Winston has been impressive, and the Seminoles have covered three of their four games overall. FSU is also 5-1 ATS in their past six home games. Maryland is 4-10 ATS in the past 14 ACC games, while FSU has covered just one of their past five conference tilts. FSU has dominated the series at home, covering eight of the past 10 visits by Maryland to Doak Campbell Stadium.

North Carolina at Virginia Tech (12:30 p.m. ET)
The Tar Heels were manhandled at home by East Carolina QB Shane Carden and the Pirates offense last week in Chapel Hill. The Heels have sunk to a new low after the 55-31 shellacking at the hands of ECU. It doesn't look to get any better for the Heels with a trip to Blacksburg. North Carolina is just 1-7 ATS in their past eight road games, 1-4 ATS in their past five games overall, and 2-5 ATS in their past seven ACC contests. One thing going in North Carolina's favor is the fact the road team has covered six of the past seven meetings in this series. Be careful with the total in this game, as it is rather tricky. The total is set at 46, and the 'under' has cashed in five of the past six meetings in this series, and each of the past four in Blacksburg. However, last season, UNC powered past Virginia Tech 48-34, and Carolina hasn't shown much of a defensive effort lately. This could be another high-scoring affair, going against what the trends say.

Georgia Tech at Miami, Fl. (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Two of the hottest ACC teams, at least against the number, do battle in South Florida on Saturday afternoon. This one has the potential to be a very entertaining affair. The Jackets were dumped at home by a 17-10 score against Virginia Tech, but had covered their previous three games. The 'under' has cashed in three in a row for Georgia Tech. The 'over' has come in over the past two games for Miami, but they have played two bad teams in Savannah State and South Florida. Ga. Tech will be a much sterner test. Last season these teams hooked up in a 42-36 overtime thriller in Atlanta. The Jackets will look to return the favor, but are 0-4 ATS in their past four trips to Miami. One other interesting tidbit is that the Hurricanes are one of five FBS teams yet to trail in a game this season.

Clemson at Syracuse (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)
With Clemson, the first thing to check out is the total. This week the line is set at 65. The 'over' has connected in three of their four games, and all three of their Saturday affairs, with the 'under' coming Sept. 19 in Raleigh in a Thursday game at N.C. State. The 'over' is 3-1 for Syracuse as well, including each of the past three outings. The Tigers have covered 10 of their past 14 games, and 16 of their past 21 conference tilts. They easily knocked off Wake Forest last week with video-game-like offense, winning 56-7. The Orange figure to offer a little more resistance. Syracuse has allowed just 17 points over the past two games, but that's against FCS opponent Wagner and FBS doormat Tulane. When the Orange faced Northwestern Sept. 7 in Evanston, the defense was pummeled for 48 points. Look for more of the same from Tigers QB Tajh Boyd and the Clemson offense under the roof in Syracuse.

Other Games
Ball State at Virginia (12:00pm ET)
Army at Boston College (1:00pm ET)
North Carolina State at Wake Forest (3:30pm ET)

October 4, 2013

By Joe Williams

The Pac-12 has a couple of national spotlight games this weekend, including Washington-Stanford. That will be an exciting matchup, as we see how good the Huskies really are. Arizona State heads to Dallas to mix it up with Notre Dame, too, although that game has lost a little of its luster with recent losses by both teams. Still, it could be a very entertaining affair in Jerry World.

It is disappointing to see Oregon State off this weekend for a bye. They have been a bettor's friend lately, at least when it comes to the 'over', going over the total in four of their five games with QB Sean Mannion and that high powered offense. It will also be interesting to see if Cal can finally cover a spread. They're a slight dog at home to Washington State, who has covered four of its five games this season.

UCLA kicked off this week's schedule with a 34-27 win at Utah, with the total coming just 'under' 62 1/2. Four Pac-12 teams remain unbeaten, and one will fall by the wayside in Palo Alto in a battle of unbeatens.


2013 PAC-12 STANDINGS

Team SU Conference ATS Over/Under

Arizona 3-1 0-1 2-2 1-3

Arizona State 3-1 1-1 2-2 4-0

California 1-3 0-1 0-4 3-1

Colorado 2-1 0-1 2-1 2-1

Oregon 4-0 1-0 4-0 3-1

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

Southern California 3-2 0-2 1-4 1-4

Stanford 4-0 2-0 2-2 3-1

UCLA 4-0 1-0 4-0 2-2

Utah 3-2 0-2 3-2 3-2

Washington 4-0 1-0 3-1 1-3

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


Washington State at California (FOX Sports 1, 4:00 p.m. ET)
Things haven't turned around completely under Mike Leach on the Palouse, as evidenced by last weekend's drumming at the hands of visiting Stanford (in Seattle). However, the Cougars have at least been respectable in games against non-ranked opponents. Washington State is 5-1 ATS in the past six games, with that lone non-cover coming against Stanford. They are 4-1-1 ATS in the past six road games against a team with a losing home record. Washington State can go a long way toward respectability, and a potential bowl berth, with a win in Berkeley. It has been a disaster in Cal lately. They have failed to cover in the past six home games, they're 0-6 ATS in their past six conference tilts, and they're a dismal 3-14 ATS in the past 17 outings. However, freshman QB Jared Goff looks pretty impressive, and they can score points. The 'over' is 3-1 in Cal's four games this season, and Goff will be a huge factor if they win or lose this game. Lastly, Washington State is 5-1 ATS in the past six trips to Cal, and the road team has covered seven of the past nine meetings in this series.

Oregon at Colorado (Pac-12 Network, 6:00 p.m. ET)
Like Clemson in the ACC, the first thing to look for in upcoming Oregon games is the total. This weekend it is set around 69. Some shops you might be able to get it at 68. Oregon has just been an absolute machine, with the 'over' coming through in 25 of the past 35 Pac-12 battles, and 35 of their past 52 games overall. The 'over' is also 4-1 in their past five road outings. Oregon has killed it against the number, too, going 4-0 ATS in their past four games against teams with a winning record, 10-1 ATS in their past 11 road games, and 7-1 ATS inside the conference. They've covered 11 of their past 12 games overall. The Buffs, on the other hand, have covered just three of the past 12 home games, and seven of their past 25. Colorado is showing some signs of life after a miserable season last year, but despite the heroics of WR Paul Richardson, Colorado isn't quite ready for prime time just yet.

Arizona State at Notre Dame - in Dallas, TX (NBC, 7:30 p.m. ET)
AZ State enters this game as a six-point favorite, and that might raise a few eyebrows east of the Mississippi. However, the Sun Devils are good, and they can score early and often. Just ask Wisconsin. Arizona State has covered five of their past seven games, and the 'over' is a perfect 4-0 in their past four neutral-site games. The 'over' is also 23-8 in their past 31 games, and 16-5 in their past 21 games against an opponent with a winning record. For Notre Dame, they have failed miserably in bigger games. They're 0-3-1 ATS in their past four against teams with a winning mark, 0-5-1 ATS in their past six overall, and 0-5 ATS in their past five on fieldturf. Of course, AZ State is 0-4-1 ATS in their past five on fieldturf, so that's a wash. This one is offense vs. defense, and it will be interesting to see who can come out victorious.

Washington at Stanford (ESPN, 10:30 p.m. ET)
Is Washington all the way back to relevance on the national stage, or just a little bit of the way back? We'll know more after this weekend's trip to Palo Alto. The Cardinal, a seven-point favorite, look for revenge after being stopped 17-13 in Seattle last season in a Thursday game. If Stanford wants to avoid losing two in a row in this series, they'll need to find a way to put the clamps on RB Bishop Sankey, who has galloped for 151.8 yards per game on the ground, tops in the nation. Stanford is looking for its 13th straight win since that aforementioned setback to UW, and they have scored at least 34 points in each of their first four games this season. This one has the potential to be thrilling from an offensive perspective. Washington is just 1-7 ATS in their past eight road games against a team with a winning home mark, but they are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games overall. Stanford is 19-6-1 ATS in their past 26 conference games, and 7-2 ATS in their past nine against teams with a winning record.

And for the first time, the totals produced a great return with a 4-1 (80%) record. Not a lot movement off the college football openers this weeks, which tells us that the oddsmakers have done a good job of separating the contenders from pretenders.

Top Matchups - Week 6

October 4, 2013


College Football

OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (5-0) at NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS (4-0)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Ohio State -7.5 & 63.5
Opening Line & Total: Buckeyes -7 & 62

Only one of these two undefeated Big Ten schools will leave the field with their record unblemished Saturday night as No. 4 Ohio State is billed as a road favorite over No. 16 Northwestern.

With an undefeated 17-0 SU record under head coach Urban Meyer, the Buckeyes have been a tremendous bet lately, covering eight of their past nine decisions, including 3-1-1 ATS this season with a push last week against Wisconsin. The Wildcats are hot too though, winning seven in a row SU dating back to last season and covering in nine of their past 11 contests. Last season, the Wildcats went a remarkable 7-0 ATS at home en route to a 12-1 ATS record overall. This is their first game this season as an underdog, but since 2009, they are 16-12 ATS when receiving help from the lines. Ohio State has just been generally impressive since 2009, going 36-18 ATS. While these schools are technically conference rivals, they have not met since 2008 when the Buckeyes dismantled the Wildcats 45-10 in Evanston to easily cover a 12.5-point spread. Ohio State has covered and won SU their past four meetings against Northwestern with an average victory total of 40.3 points per game.

The good news for Ohio State is that QB Braxton Miller (knee) returned to action in last week’s victory and showed no signs of his injury, completing 17-of-25 passes for 198 yards and four touchdowns while not throwing a pick against Wisconsin. Overall, he’s completed 69.4% of his passes this year for 406 yards (8.3 YPA) while adding 165 yards on 4.1 YPC with his legs. RB Jordan Hall is part of a deep backfield, leading the unit with eight touchdowns already in 2013 on 69 carries for 427 yards. He has carried the ball only five times total in the last two games since Carlos Hyde (126 rush yds on 5.7 YPC) has returned following a suspension. Hall also has the potential to ground-and-pound all game with two games of more than 150 yards already this season. Overall, the team has 14 rushing TD, two of which are from Ezekiel Elliot (21 carries for 200 yards), who leads the crew with 9.5 YPC. However, more impressive than the Buckeyes' offense has been the defense that is stifling opponents’ rushing attacks with 2.8 YPC allowed.

Northwestern, however, also lives off the ground with three rushers of more than 200 yards. This unit is led by RB Treyvon Green, who is averaging 7.0 YPC with 58 touches for 404 yards and five touchdowns, but top RB Venric Mark (1,366 rush yds, 12 TD in 2012) is expected to return on Saturday after a three-game absence due to an ankle injury. The passing reps have gone to two people: Trevor Siemian (47-for-70, 4 TD, 2 INT) and Kain Colter, who has completed 27-of-35 passes this season for 264 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. The team’s No. 1 receiver has been WR Tony Jones, who has racked up 362 yards on 24 catches for three touchdowns. The Wildcats' rushing defense has been great this season, holding foes to 3.7 YPC, though the pass defense has to improve, giving up 308 passing yards per game so far.


WASHINGTON HUSKIES (4-0) at STANFORD CARDINAL (4-0)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Stanford -9 & 53
Opening Line & Total: Cardinal -7.5 & 53

No. 15 Washington looks to continue its fast start this season when it visits No. 5 Stanford, which will be looking for some revenge after falling 17-13 to the Huskies last year.

After a disappointing 2012 season, Washington QB Keith Price is back to his 2011 form. When Price is on top of his game, he is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in all of the country. With RB Bishop Sankey ranking fifth in the country with 607 rushing yards, the Huskies have one of the most balanced offenses in the country with the ability to score on anybody. With its 31-13 victory over Arizona last week, Washington is now 4-0 ATS this season. However, the Huskies will be put to the test against the Cardinal, who have one of the best defenses in the country. After allowing Washington State to hang around for the first half in last Saturday’s game, Stanford put on an incredible defensive display, including two interceptions returned for touchdowns in the third quarter. As good as the defense is, it is the play of their quarterback that has Cardinal fans dreaming of a potential national title berth. In his brief career, QB Kevin Hogan has shown the ability to be a big-time college quarterback. He has won all 10 career starts (7-3 ATS), while throwing 19 touchdowns to just six interceptions so far in his career. He is very athletic, but when he scrambles, he does it more to give his wide receivers more time to get open than trying to rush downfield. This game could be decided on which quarterback plays better, which makes for an interesting game. Washington is 18-8 ATS (69%) when the total is between 49.5 and 56 points under head coach Steve Sarkisian, but Stanford is 10-0 ATS after scoring 42+ points in a game under head coach David Shaw.

After a 2011 season that saw him throw for 3,063 yards and 33 touchdowns, Washington QB Keith Price threw for only 19 TD last season, and was a big reason why the Huskies struggled. This year, he is leading an offense that ranks fifth in the country in total offense with 574 yards per game. He has tremendous arm strength, and is extremely accurate, as he is completing 72.3 percent of his passes this season. While Price didn't play very well against Stanford (19-of-37, 177 yards, 4.8 YPA, 1 TD, 1 INT; minus-14 rushing yards), RB Bishop Sankey picked up his slack in a big way. Sankey paced the Washington offense with 144 yards on 20 carries (7.2 YPC), including a 61-yard TD run on the final play of the third quarter. Washington has everything needed to become a powerhouse in the Pac-12, now it’s time for them to put it together and make it happen. The Huskies have not defeated a top-25 team on the road since 2010, when they upset USC 32-31. However, repeating that feat will be no easy task as they go up against a Stanford team that has the second longest winning streak in the country at 12 games.

When Jim Harbaugh left, it was thought that the Stanford success went with him. However, that has proven not to be the case at all, as David Shaw has taken the Cardinal program to the next level in his three years in charge. While people think of the great defense that Stanford has, the offense has an abundance of firepower as well. Junior WR Trent Montgomery is a big-time athlete that is as complete of a wide receiver as there is in the Pac-12. He is a great combination of size and speed, while also having the ability to block downfield in the running game. Speaking of the running game, senior RB Tyler Gaffney is having a huge season with 377 yards (5.2 YPC) and five touchdowns. He is looking to bounce back from a subpar showing in Pullman last week when he gained just 54 yards on 14 carries (3.9 YPC). He has helped Stanford outrush its two Pac-12 opponents this season by a wide 478 to 101 margin.


MARYLAND TERRAPINS (4-0) at FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES (4-0)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Florida State -15 & 57.5
Opening Line & Total: Seminoles -16 & 57.5

No. 25 Maryland appears to be turning the corner under the watch of head coach Randy Edsall, and his team will get its first real test Saturday when they visit No. 8 Florida State and star QB Jameis Winston.

The Seminoles are coming off a tougher than expected 48-34 victory over 21.5-point underdog Boston College last Saturday, failing to cover the spread for the first time this season. However, Winston once again proved to the country that he is as good of a quarterback as there is, throwing for 330 yards and four touchdowns. Winston has talents that you can’t coach, and is a nightmare for opposing defenses to game plan for. The Terrapins right now are the surprise of the ACC. This is the first time they have been ranked in the AP Poll since the end of 2010. Their 37-0 win over West Virginia looks even more impressive after the Mountaineers defeated then No. 11 Oklahoma State last Saturday. Injuries decimated this team last season, but a healthy C.J. Brown has given Maryland a quarterback of their own that can make plays with both his arm as well as his feet. The Terrapins are a perfect 4-0 ATS this season, but this is the first time they are an underdog as they head to Tallahassee. Last season, FSU dominated this matchup, defeating Maryland 41-14 on the road, but the Terps were using linebacker Shawn Petty as their starting quarterback that day.

Brown has been quite impressive this season, throwing for 1,043 yards and seven touchdowns. He missed last season due to a knee injury, and has come back better than before. He has been helped by the emergence of sophomore WR Stefon Diggs, who has 400 receiving yards and 3 TD in just four games. He is not the biggest receiver (6-foot-0, 195 pounds), but he has the ability to get behind the secondary. If the Terrapins are going to pull off the upset, they will need Diggs to provide the team with a couple of big plays down the field. Last year he was held to three catches in the loss to FSU, but was still able to record a 25-yard reception and 23-yard run. While the Seminoles offense has been rolling this season, the Maryland defense has been very impressive as well. Through four games, the Terrapins have given up only 10.3 PPG, which ranks third in the country. Florida State has one of the best home fields in all of the country, so it is key for Maryland to get off to a fast start and not allow the crowd to get into the game.

There is no denying that Winston is a special player. However, there are many other players that are capable of big plays for the No. 4-ranked scoring offense in the country (51.0 PPG). Senior WR Kenny Shaw is emerging as the go-to guy for Winston, as Winston hit him on a 55-yard bomb at the end of the first half against Boston College. While the passing game of the Seminoles gets most of the talk, Florida State is more than capable of major success on the ground. James Wilder Jr. (5.8 YPC, 2 TD) is one of the most underrated players in all of the country. He is a physical specimen that is able to run through defenders with no problem and he piled up 52 yards and a touchdown on just eight carries (6.5 YPC) versus Maryland last year. However, it is the play of the defense that will need to step up after allowing 34 points and 397 yards against an average Boston College offense. DT Timmy Jernigan has big-time talent and can be unblockable at times, however, he must learn to bring the intensity on every single play. He will be looked upon to get pressure on C.J. Brown, and not allow him to roll out and get on the perimeter.

TCU HORNED FROGS (2-2) at OKLAHOMA SOONERS (4-0)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Oklahoma -10 & 47.5
Opening Line & Total: Sooners -10.5 & 47.5

No. 11 Oklahoma looks to continue its impressive start to the season hosting a TCU team that was supposed to be one of the best teams in the Big 12.

After losing the starting job, Sooners QB Blake Bell has gained it back and taken complete control of the position with back-to-back terrific performances against Tulsa and Notre Dame. In those games, Bell has thrown for 683 yards and six touchdowns. Last season, he was given the nickname “The Belldozer,” for his role as the Wildcat quarterback. While he is still a dangerous running threat, it is his improvement in the passing game that has the Sooners entering the national title talk. Oklahoma is 3-1 ATS this season, as it was two points shy of covering in a 16-7 victory over West Virginia. Like its opponent, TCU has had a quarterback shuffle as well this season. Despite a great performance last season, QB Trevone Boykin was expected to resume his backup role as Casey Pachall was back from his suspension. However, Pachall got hurt (forearm) early this season, putting Boykin back under center for the Horned Frogs. Boykin gives TCU a big-time playmaker at the quarterback position. Despite being just 2-2, there is still a ton of talent on this team. One of their losses was to LSU, a game in which they were down by only three points late in the fourth quarter. The Horned Frogs have had a problem playing to their potential, as they are only 1-3 ATS this season. They have the talent on both sides of the ball to get the job done, they just have to go out and do that. Oklahoma defeated TCU 24-17 in Fort Worth last season, marking the fifth time in six meetings that the road team prevailed in this series.

Besides Boykin on offense, TCU has talent at both the running back and wide receiver positions. RBs Waymon James and B.J. Catalon are both averaging over five yards per carry this season, forcing defenses to load the box. This allows WR Josh Carter to have single coverage on the outside, where he has the speed to run away from the secondary. If the rushing duo is able to establish the line of scrimmage early, then there may be some openings for Boykin to attack downfield early in the game. Boykin had a decent game versus Oklahoma last year, completing 17-of-31 passes for 231 yards (7.5 YPA), 1 TD (80 yards to Carter) and 0 INT. While there are playmakers on the offense, the Horned Frogs defense (22.8 PPG allowed, 60th in FBS) needs to raise their level of play. Head coach Gary Patterson has had some great defenses during his time at TCU, and this unit has as much talent as any of those defenses. The status for sophomore DE Devonte Fields (foot) is unknown against the Sooners, but he is the type of guy that can change a game. The defending Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year has been hampered this season by injuries and suspensions. If he is unable to go Saturday, that will make things much tougher for TCU. The secondary is one of the very best in the Big 12 with CBs Jason Verrett and Kevin White. Both of them are able to be put on an island and blanket a wide receiver in man coverage for extended periods of times. However, they will be put to the test against an explosive Oklahoma wide receiver group.

Sooners WRs Sterling Shepard and Jalen Saunders have the ability to take it to the house on any given moment. Both of them are very solid route runners that know what to do with the ball after they catch it. The Horned Frogs had no answer for Saunders last year, as he caught seven passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. RBs Brennan Clay and Damien Williams have given the Sooners the rushing attack that QB Blake Bell and the passing game need in order to keep defenses from playing two-safety-deep defenses. Williams, who totaled 154 yards and 2 TD in last year's win at TCU, may be counted upon to carry more of the load, as Clay is currently doubtful for the game after experiencing a head injury in the third quarter of last week’s game. When head coach Bob Stoops was most successful, his Sooners defense was one of the top units in all of the country, and they appear to be back to an elite level on that side of the ball this year. Entering Week 6, the Sooners have given up just 12.0 points per game, ranking sixth in the country. While TCU’s secondary may have better players, Oklahoma CB Aaron Colvin is hands down the best secondary player on either team. He has great range, and is a factor in both stopping the run as well as the pass. While a lot of Big 12 games come down to which offense scores the most, look for this game to be more of a defensive struggle.

GEORGIA BULLDOGS (3-1) at TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS (3-2)

Sportsbook.ag Line & Total: Georgia -11.5 & 65.5
Opening Line & Total: Bulldogs -11.5 & 65.5

Coming off its second win of the season against a top-10 opponent, No. 6 Georgia hits the road as double-digit favorites against Tennessee.

At 3-1 on the season, the Bulldogs suffered their only loss of the season as 1.5-point favorites in their opening game of the year to currently No. 3 Clemson, their first of three games so far this season against top-10 foes. That was their only road game so far and they are now 1-2-1 ATS and 12-17 ATS on the road since 2008. The Volunteers, meanwhile, are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS after snapping a two-game SU losing skid last week with a narrow 31-24 win over South Alabama. The Vols were 16-point favorites in that game, dropping to 1-2 ATS at home and 14-18 ATS at home since 2008. Last season when these two teams met, the Volunteers kept pace with the high-powered Georgia attack and covered the 14-point spread in a wild 51-44 loss in Athens. In the past five meetings between these two teams at Neyland Stadium, Tennessee is 3-2 SU and ATS. In those contests, the team that won the game SU also covered the spread. But the big question entering this game is the health of Bulldogs star RB Todd Gurley, who is day-to-day with a sprained ankle.

Todd Gurley was huge against the Volunteers last year, rushing for 130 yards on 24 carries with three touchdowns. Gurley has been spectacular again this year, with 450 yards on 71 carries even though he carried the ball only eight times before injuring himself in last week’s 44-41 win against LSU. The good news for Georgia is that QB Aaron Murray has the potential to put the team on his back, already throwing for 1,338 yards and 11 touchdowns with three interceptions through four games, completing 68.1% of his passes. He completed 19-of-25 passes for 278 yards and 2 TD last year against the Volunteers. Murray is an expert at evenly distributing the ball as six Bulldogs already have more than 100 receiving yards and four receivers have two touchdown catches. If Gurley is unable to go, RB Keith Marshall (51 carries for 213 yards) will have to pick up the slack. On the other side of the ball, Georgia’s rushing defense has been its strength, limiting opponents to 3.5 YPC. But through the air, they Bulldogs have allowed opponents to gain 277 passing YPG.

The Tennessee offense is built on the ground where it averages 215 rushing yards per game. RB Rajion Neal (468 yards, 5.9 YPC, 5 TD) leads the attack while Marlin Lane (280 yards, 6.2 YPC, 4 TD) provides an effective change of pace. Both backs have broken runs of more than 50 yards already this season while Neal carried the ball 23 times for 104 yards in last season’s meeting between the two teams. Where the Tennessee offense has been inconsistent is through the air, as QB Justin Worley is completing just 56% of his passes. He has thrown for only 725 yards through five games for eight touchdowns while getting intercepted six times. No Volunteers receiver has more than 150 receiving yards with Alton Howard leading the corps at 148 with two touchdowns on 11 receptions. The defense, meanwhile, is giving up 26.8 PPG, and allowing 4.4 YPC on the ground. The Vols have allowed 250 passing YPG, but have already forced 15 turnovers in their five games.

Ohio State at Northwestern

October 4, 2013


Matchup: Ohio State Buckeyes at Northwestern Wildcats
Venue: Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois (Grass)
Date: Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013
Time/TV: 8:00 pm. ET - ABC
Line: Ohio State -7, Over/Under 63
Last Meeting: 2008, Ohio State (-12 ½) 45 at Northwestern 10

Ohio State falls into a dangerous letdown situation Saturday night when it ventures into Evanston to take on Northwestern at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. ABC will provide television coverage.

As of early Friday morning, most books had Ohio St. (5-0 straight up, 3-1-1 against the spread) installed as a seven-point favorite with a total of 61. Gamblers can back the home team on the money line for an attractive +240 payout (risk $100 to win $240). For first-half wagers, the Buckeyes are favored by four with a total of 30 ½.

Urban Meyer’s team is coming off a 31-24 win over Wisconsin as a seven-point home ‘chalk.’ Braxton Miller returned to the lineup after missing back-to-back games and showed no signs of rust. Miller threw four touchdown passes without being intercepted and also ran for 83 yards.

The 55 combined points dipped ‘under’ the 56-point total. However, bettors that took the ‘over’ early in the week at 54 ½ were also victorious.

Northwestern (4-0 SU, 2-2 ATS) has had two weeks to prepare for the Buckeyes and it faced a pair of cupcake opponents (Western Michigan and Maine) prior to the open date. The Wildcats will also benefit from the return of star running back and special-teams dynamo Venric Mark.

Mark was a second-team All Big Ten selection as a RB last season and earned first-team All-American honors as a special-teams player. The senior speedster rushed for 1,366 yards and 12 TDs in 2012, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. Mark also returned a pair of punts for TDs. He hasn’t played since spraining his ankle in a 44-30 season-opening win at California.

Pat Fitzgerald’s team has won all four of its game by 14 points or more. NU is led by versatile quarterback Kain Colter, who has completed 27-of-35 passes (77.1%) for 264 yards with a 3/2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Colter has rushed for 237 yards and three TDs, averaging 6.1 yards per carry.

QB Trevor Siemian will also get snaps under center. He has actually played more than Colter this season because Colter got injured at Cal. Siemian has connected on 47-of-70 throws (67.1%) for 671 yards with a 4/2 TD-INT ratio.

Whoever is at QB, he will be aiming for leading receiver Tony Jones, who has 24 receptions for 363 yards and three TDs. Also, Christian Jones has 15 catches for 223 yards and two TDs.

With Mark out, Treyvonn Green has carried the bulk of the rushing load. Green has 404 rushing yards and five TDs, averaging 6.8 YPC.

OSU’s Miller is completing 69.4 percent of his passes with 6/1 TD-INT ratio. Miller can also beat opponents with legs as he’s rushed for 165 yards, averaging 4.1 YPC. Jordan Hall has rushed for 427 yards and eight TDs, averaging 6.2 YPC.

The Buckeyes’ top receiving threats are Devin Smith and Philly Brown. Smith has 20 receptions for 331 yards and five TDs, while Brown has hauled in 24 catches for 254 yards and five scores.

As a road favorite under Urban Meyer, Ohio St. has posted a 1-1 spread record. Northwestern owns a 9-9 ATS ledger as a home underdog with Fitzgerald.

The ‘over’ is 3-2 overall for OSU, 1-0 in its lone road assignment. The ‘under’ has cashed at a 2-1 clip for the NU in its home games.

Ohio St. has won four in a row over Northwestern both SU and ATS. However, these Big Ten rivals haven’t faced each since 2008 when the Buckeyes rolled to an easy 45-10 win as a 12 ½-point road favorite.

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--UCLA captured a 34-27 win at Utah on Thursday night to remain undefeated. The Bruins took the cash as six-point road favorites. Brett Hundley had a touchdown catch, pass and run against the Utes.

--Bobby Petrino’s Western Kentucky squad went into Monroe and knocked off an injury-riddled ULM team by a 31-10 count. The Hilltoppers covered the number as seven-point road ‘chalk.’

--Texas escaped Ames with a fortunate and controversial 31-30 victory over Iowa St. On the Longhorns’ game-winning drive at crunch time, there were several critical calls by the officials that went against the Cyclones, who nonetheless hooked up their backers as 7 ½-point home underdogs.

--Steve Spurrier announced earlier this week that the suspension that kept leading receiver Shaq Roland out of last week’s win at UCF is a three-game. Roland, a sophomore who was Mr. Football in the state of South Carolina coming out of high school, will miss Saturday’s home game vs. Kentucky and next week’s game at Arkansas. QB Connor Shaw won’t miss this weekend and will get the starting nod against UK. A shoulder injury sustained against UCF was initially diagnosed as one that would keep Shaw out for 2-3 weeks. However, Shaw has a high tolerance for pain and played nearly all of the 2012 campaign with multiple ailments. Back-up RB Brandon Wilds will miss the next 3-4 weeks due to an elbow injury. The Gamecocks are favored by 21 over the ‘Cats.

--For most of the week, Vanderbilt has been favored by 1 ½ or two points for Saturday’s home game vs. Missouri. But that number moved early Friday and now the Tigers are one-point favorites. Vandy could be without its best pass rusher Walker May, who is ‘questionable’ with a leg injury.

--Stanford OG David Yankey rejoined the team Monday. Yankey, an All-American, didn’t make the trip to Seattle for his team’s win over Washington St. to be with his family following the death of his father last week.

--Ga. Tech starting safety Jamal Golden underwent season-ending shoulder surgery earlier this week. The Yellow Jackets were already without their other starting safety, Isaiah Johnson. They are six-point ‘dogs at Miami.

--Paul Pasqualoni and Lame Chafin’ took pink slips last Sunday at UConn and USC, respectively. If Illinois wins at Nebraska, Bo Pelini could join those guys on the unemployment line.

--Oregon RB De’Anthony Thomas is ‘doubtful’ at Colorado after spraining his ankle in last week’s 55-16 win over California. With a trip to Washington on deck next weekend, I don’t expect to see Thomas on the field in Boulder.

--Georgia RB Todd Gurley might be the nation’s best running back. He is ‘questionable’ Saturday at Tennessee due to a sprained ankle. But I don’t’ think handicappers should downgrade UGA on account of Gurley’s potential absence. That’s because there is minimal drop-off from Gurley to back-up Keith Marshall, who actually had a better YPC average (6.5) compared to Gurley (6.3) last season.
