Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Miami Hurricanes (-24.5, 54)

The Demon Deacons seek a third straight win after knocking off North Carolina State and Maryland in consecutive weeks following a 2-3 start. Against the Hurricanes, Wake Forest hopes to improve its presence on the road, where it has disappointed this season.

hings definitely are looking up from all angles for the Hurricanes, who have not been ranked this high since November 13, 2005. Quarterback Stephen Morris has Miami poised for the big play at all times, ranking fifth in the nation with an average of 16.52 yards per completion. Duke Johnson averages a conference-best 7.1 yards per carry, and his 109.2 yards per game trail only Boston College's Andre Williams among ACC rushers.

LINE: Miami opened as a 21-point fave and is now -24.5. The total is currently 54.
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-80s with wind blowing across the field at 13 mph.
TRENDS:

* Demon Deacons are 2-14 ATS in their last 16 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
* Hurricanes are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games.
* Under is 19-7 in Demon Deacons last 26 games overall.

Stanford Cardinal at Oregon State Beavers – Open: +4.5, Move: +3.5

Bettors know Corvallis is a tough place to play and have taken this line down near a field goal, putting their faith in Beavers’ ninth-ranked offense (44.1 points per game).

“Not the biggest of line moves, but it’s an interesting line given the Beavers’ ability to score with the pass,” says Black. “Action so far is pretty split with about 1.5/1 Cardinal to Beavers ATS, but the opposite clip on the Oregon State moneyline.”

Eastern Michigan Eagles at Northern Illinois Huskies (-30)
ATS pick: Northern Illinois

Losing a teammate makes for the most difficult of weeks, and to the Eagles' credit, they channeled their emotion into a solid on-field performance against Ohio. Eastern ran out of gas after 40 minutes, and a strong follow-up effort on the road in an unwinnable game is too much to expect. Northern Illinois hasn't managed a halftime lead of more than four points in any of its past three games, and has no reason to look past Eastern with Massachusetts and an open date on deck. The difference between the top and bottom of the MAC is stark, and in this league the top teams beat the very worst by seven touchdowns, not four.

Score: Northern Illinois 59, Eastern Michigan 10

Clemson Tigers at Maryland Terrapins - Open: +14, Move: +17

Clemson was thrashed by Florida State last time out and must rebound against a slumping Maryland program. Books have seen nothing but Clemson money from the word 'go', moving it a full three points.

"We opened Clemson a solid 14-point road favorite and we thought that number would be high enough to attract some action on the dog," says Stewart. "We were wrong and money has poured in on the favorite. I can't see us going any higher than -17 so if you like the dog, play it now because this game either stays at -17 or dips back down to 16.5 or even 16."

Team to watch: Colorado State Rams (3-4 SU, 5-2 ATS)

This week: -5.5 at Hawaii


The Rams are battle tested on the road heading into Saturday’s date at winless Hawaii. They lost at Tulsa and Alabama before scoring a 30-point win at Wyoming last weekend. Colorado State churned out 509 yards at the Cowboys’ expense, including 290 yards on the ground. Quarterback Garrett Grayson threw three touchdown passes and has nine in his last three outings. The offensive unit should be licking its chops to an even greater extent against a 0-6 Hawaii squad that is allowing 475.8 yards per game. Colorado State won this matchup 42-27 at home last year.

The Rams are 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four road contests. Hawaii is 4-9 ATS in its last 13 Mountain West showdowns and 3-9 ATS in its last 12 against opponents with losing records.
