    SEC Notebook - Week 1
    August 31, 2018
    By Brian Edwards


    **Ole Miss vs. Texas Tech**

    -- These teams will collide in Houston for this tone-setting season opener Saturday at noon Eastern on ESPN. As of Friday afternoon, most betting shops had Texas Tech installed as a 2.5-point favorite with a total of 67. The Rebels were +115 on the money line (risk $100 to win $115).

    -- Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is on the hot seat going into his sixth season at his alma mater, where he remains second in school history with 12,429 career passing yards. Kingsbury has generated plenty of offense, but the other side of the ball has been a nightmare. He has compiled a 30-33 overall record while limping to a 16-29 mark against Big 12 competition. Kingsbury has taken the Red Raiders to three bowl games, going 1-2 in those contests. He probably needs to go at least 7-5 during the regular season to be retained.

    -- Texas Tech won a 27-23 decision at Texas as an eight-point underdog in last year’s regular-season finale. The victory clinched a postseason bid and probably prevented Kingsbury from taking a pink slip. The Red Raiders allowed a fourth-quarter lead to get away, however, in a 38-34 loss to South Florida in the Birmingham Bowl.

    -- Texas Tech brings back six starters on offense and 10 on defense. The Red Raiders finished 2017 with a 6-7 straight-up record and a 6-6-1 against-the-spread ledger. They return their top eight tacklers (and 12 of their top 13) from a defense that gave up 32.2 points per game. That’s not great, but it was an immense improvement from the 41.3, 43.6 and 43.5 PPG given up from 2014-16. However, a pair of key secondary members are injured. Senior cornerback Octavius Morgan is ‘out’ with a knee injury, while senior safety Jah’Shawn Johnson is ‘questionable’ with a shoulder issue. Morgan recorded 41 tackles, eight passes broken up and one tackle for loss last season, while Johnson produced 97 tackles, five PBU and four TFL’s.

    -- Ole Miss is going to have an outstanding offense, but it might field the SEC’s worst defense in 2018. Matt Luke had the interim label removed after guiding the Rebels to an Egg Bowl win at Mississippi St. as 15-point road underdogs. The win over the Bulldogs, Ole Miss’s third in its final four games, allowed it to finish 6-6 SU and 5-7 ATS.

    -- Ole Miss returns eight starters on offense and seven on defense. The Rebels lost 28 lettermen, however. The offensive talent is still top notch despite the defections of several players, including former five-star recruits Shea Patterson (Michigan) and Van Jefferson (Florida). On Mel Kiper Jr.’s first Big Board for the 2019 NFL Draft that he released early this summer, junior WR A.J. Brown and junior OT Greg Little were listed at No. 4 and No. 6 in the first round, respectively.

    -- When Patterson went down with a season-ending knee injury vs. LSU last October, juco transfer QB Jordan Ta’amu took control of the offense. And he delivered. Ta’amu completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,682 yards with an 11/4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He found D.K. Metcalf for a TD pass with four second left to lift the Rebels to a 37-34 comeback win at Kentucky.

    -- Brown was a second-team All-American selection last season when he caught 75 balls for 1,252 yards and 11 TDs. Metcalf and DaMarkus Lodge combined for 80 catches and 14 TD grabs. All three WRs have bright futures in the NFL.

    -- In neutral-site season openers, Ole Miss won and covered vs. Boise St. in Atlanta in 2014, but it allowed a 22-point first-half lead to get away in a loss to FSU in Orlando back in 2016.

    -- For more of my thoughts on the 2018 Rebels, check out this link here.

    -- Kickoff is scheduled for noon Eastern on ESPN.

    **Central Michigan at Kentucky**

    -- As of Friday afternoon, most books had Kentucky listed as a 17-point home favorite with a total of 49. The Chippewas were +600 on the money line (risk $100 to win $600).

    -- Kentucky is going into its sixth season on Mark Stoops’s watch. He joins Vandy’s Derek Mason and LSU’s Ed Orgeron as the SEC coaches who are on the hot seat in 2018. Stoops has gone winless in back-to-back bowl-game appearances, including last year’s 24-23 loss to Northwestern when he decided to go for two (and failed) after scoring a potential game-tying TD with less than a minute left. He has a 26-36 overall record at UK, going 12-28 in SEC play.

    -- Kentucky finished ’17 with a 7-6 SU record and a 4-9 ATS mark. Three of the six defeats came by six combined points. There was zero excuse for not snapping the longest active losing streak in an FBS rivalry vs. Florida last year. The Gators scored twice on TD passes when UK literally didn’t have a defender lined up on the WR split out wide. The first was on a 4th-and-three play at midfield late in the second quarter. The second was UF’s game-winning TD pass in the final minute came on third and goal coming out of a bleeping timeout!

    -- Terry Wilson was named the starting QB for the Wildcats earlier this week. Wilson, who had a 26/11 TD-INT ratio playing juco ball last season, started his career at Oregon in ’16 before transferring.

    -- For more of my thoughts on UK, star RB Benny Snell and defense, check out this preview I wrote several weeks ago.

    -- Central Michigan won five consecutive games to close the regular season and clinch a bowl bid last year. The Chippewas finished 8-5 SU and 7-6 ATS after losing 37-14 to Wyoming at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. They bring back four starters on offense and six on defense.

    -- CMU owns an 11-4 spread record in its past 15 games as a road underdog. During John Bonamego’s tenure that’s beginning its fourth season, the Chippewas are 12-6 ATS in 18 road assignments.

    -- CMU is winless in eight games against SEC foes.

    -- ESPNU will have the telecast at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

    **Washington vs. Auburn**

    -- As of Friday afternoon, most spots had Auburn installed as a 2.5-point favorite for this crucial showdown at the Mercedez-Benz Dome in Atlanta. The total was in the 48-49 range, while some shops had the Huskies at +110 or +115 to win outright.

    -- This venue wasn’t kind to Gus Malzahn’s troops last season. After winning the SEC West thanks to home wins over second-ranked Georgia and top-ranked Alabama during a three-week stretch, AU lost the rematch with UGA in the ATL at the SEC Championship Game by a 28-7 count. Then in the Peach Bowl, UCF closed out an undefeated campaign by besting the Tigers, 34-27, as a 10-point underdog.

    -- Auburn finished the year with a 10-4 SU record and a 5-7-2 ATS mark. There was no shame in the two other losses at (eventual CFP semifinalist) Clemson and at LSU in one-possession games. Actually, truth be told, there was certainly some discontent among the AU faithful when Malzahn’s squad allowed a double-digit second-half lead to get away in Baton Rouge. Nevertheless, he was awarded with a lucrative contract extension after his fifth season on the job.

    -- Auburn returns six starters on offense and seven on defense. The top-five WRs are back, but Will Hastings and Eli Stove are both injured and ‘out’ vs. UW (and for at least several more games). Ryan Davis is QB Jarrett Stidham’s favorite target. Davis enjoyed a breakout ’17 campaign, hauling in 84 receptions for 815 yards and five TDs. Stidham completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 3,158 yards with an 18/6 TD-INT ratio.

    -- Auburn has to replace workhorse RB Kerryon Johnson, who ran for 1,391 yards and 18 TDs with a 4.9 yards-per-carry average. Kam Martin will get more touches and be counted on to produce. The junior RB had 453 rushing yards and two TDs with a 6.1 YPC average last season.

    -- Auburn has lost five of eight games played on a neutral field during Malzahn’s tenure. The Tigers are 3-2 in school history in five games against Pac-12 foes

    -- Washington brings back eight starters on offense and nine on defense from a team that went 10-3 SU and 7-6 ATS. Chris Petersen, who has been in the top five of my Coaching Rankings for more than a decade, has got the Huskies rolling now. The former long-time HC at Boise St. took UW to the CFP in ’16 before losing 24-7 to eventual runner-up Alabama.

    -- All three of Washington’s L’s last year came in one-possession games (at Arizona St., at Stanford and vs. Penn St. in the Fiesta Bowl. Senior QB Jake Browning is second in school history in career passing yards (9,104) and is poised to break Cody Pickett’s school record later this month. RB Myles Gaskin is second in career rushing yards at UW with 4,055. He needs just 52 rushing yards vs. Auburn to eclipse Napoleon Kaufman’s record that was established from 1991-94.

    -- Browning connected on 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,719 yards with a 19/5 TD-INT ratio last year. He lost top target Dante Pettis to the NFL and TE Hunter Bryant went down with a season-ending injury last month. Look for junior WR Aaron Fuller to emerge as Browning’s go-to guy this season. Fuller had 26 catches for 291 yards and one TD in ’17.

    -- Gaskin ran for 1,380 yards and 21 TDs while averaging 6.2 YPC in ’17. He also had 19 receptions for 232 yards and three TDs.

    -- Washington senior OT Trey Adams is listed as ‘questionable’ with a knee injury. Adams was a second-team All-American two seasons ago, but he injured his knee in a late-October loss at ASU last year.

    -- The last time Petersen brought a team across country to Atlanta for a season opener was when he was at BSU in 2011. Kellen Moore and the Broncos came to the Ga. Dome and smashed Georgia 35-21 in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score indicated.

    -- ABC will provide the broadcast at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

    **West Virginia vs. Tennessee**


    -- As of Friday afternoon, most shops had WVU installed as a 9.5-point ‘chalk.’ The Volunteers were +300 on the money line, while the total was 61.5 points.

    -- Tennessee fired Butch Jones after last year’s 4-8 nightmare that brought an end to his five-year tenure. The Vols, who finished ’17 with an abysmal 2-10 spread record, lost all eight of their SEC games. They scored a just a 19.8 PPG clip while surrendering 29.1 PPG. UT finished the season minus 1,462 in total offense vs. its opponents.

    -- Jeremy Pruitt, who has been one of the nation’s top DC’s for many years during stops at Alabama, FSU, Georgia (and a second run at ‘Bama), landed his first HC-gig in Knoxville after a debacle of a coaching search that resulted in the dismissal of AD John Currie and the return of legendary coach Phil Fulmer to take his place. Currie had struck out on a slew of candidates after a fan revolt basically vetoed his desired hiring of former Rutgers HC Greg Schiano. Then when Currie appeared poised to hire Washington St.’s Mike Leach, he was ordered back to Knoxville from his meeting with Leach in California and handed a pink slip. Fulmer took over and decided to go with Pruitt several days later.

    -- UT brings back six starters on both offense and defense (12 total). The offense lost stud RB John Kelly, who ran for 778 yards and nine TDs as a senior. Pruitt has refused to announce a starting QB, leaving fans and pundits to wonder whether it will be sophomore Jarrett Guarantano or Stanford grad transfer Keller Chryst. The fifth-year senior took over the starting job for the Cardinal midway through ’16 and led it to a 6-0 record. Chryst went down with a torn ACL in a bowl-win over North Carolina, though. He made it back for Week 1 last season but wasn’t as effecting and eventually lost his job to K.J. Costello.

    -- West Virginia went 7-6 SU and 6-7 ATS in ’17. The Mountaineers bring back seven starters on offense and five on defense. Most important, QB Will Grier returns for his senior season. Grier had WVU with a 7-3 record going into a home game vs. Texas, but he dislocated a finger on his throwing hand early in the first quarter and missed the regular-season finale and the Heart of Dallas Bowl (a 30-14 loss to Utah). Grier completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 3,490 yards with a 34/12 TD-INT ratio upon his return to the field after being out since midway through the ’15 season.

    -- Grier might have the country’s best 1-2 combination of WRs in Gary Jennings and David Sills. Jennings had 97 receptions for 1,096 yards and one TD last year, while Sills had 60 catches for 980 yards and 18 TDs. Sills garnered second-team All-American honors and Jennings was a second-team All-Big-12 selection.

    -- Leading rusher Justin Crawford (1,061 yards LY) is gone, but Kennedy McCoy is ready to take on a bigger load. McCoy rushed for 596 yards and seven TDs with a 4.8 YPC average in ’17. Dana Holgorsen and his staff are high on redshirt freshman RB Alec Sinkfield.

    -- In his first seven years on the job at WVU, ‘Holgo’ is 4-6 in neutral-field games. He is 53-37 overall with only one losing season (4-8 in ’13).

    -- Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS.

    **B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

    -- South Carolina will host Coastal Carolina at noon Eastern on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, the Gamecocks were favored by 29.5 points with a total of 57. Just like last year when I had South Carolina ‘over’ 5.5 wins (and it cashed before the calendar hit November) for its season win total, I recommended USC to go ‘over’ 7 wins earlier this summer. I’m already on it heavy at even money but unfortunately, the juice has gone so far North (at least -150 at many Vegas shops, as high as -190 at some offshores) for me to continue to endorse this play at the expensive price. Some offshore shops have even moved the number to 7.5 and still have juice on the ‘over’ (around -130 at most).

    -- Kentucky starting OT Landon Young was lost to a season-ending injury last week.

    -- Vanderbilt will play host to Middle Tennessee at 7:30 p.m. Easter on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, most books had the Commodores as three-point home favorites with a total of 56.5. They thumped the Blue Raiders 28-6 as three-point road ‘chalk’ in last year’s season opener. Check out more on Vandy from my preview earlier this summer.

    -- The lines for FBS games against FCS foes were not yet available when this column was filed late Friday afternoon. Florida is taking on Charleston Southern, Mississippi St. is hosting Stephen F. Austin, Arkansas is squaring off with Eastern Illinois in Chad Morris’s debut, Georgia will welcome Austin Peay between the hedges and finally, Missouri hosts UT-Martin.

    -- My full preview of Alabama vs. Louisville is here.

    -- New head coach Joe Moorhead has suspended star QB Nick Fitzgerald for one game due to a violation of team rules dating back to March. Keytaon Thompson will make his second career start vs. SF Austin. Thompson led the Bulldogs to a 31-27 Taxslayer Bowl victory over Louisville as 6.5-point underdogs. He rushed for 446 yards and six TDs with a 5.9 YPC average last year. For more on MSU, check out my preview here

    -- Texas A&M coasted to a 59-7 win over Northwestern St. on Thursday night in College Station. The Aggies took the cash as 46.5-point home 'chalk.' Trayveon Williams was the catalyst in Jimbo Fisher's debut, rushing for 240 yards and three TDs on 20 carries.

Morgan recorded 41 tackles, eight passes broken up and one tackle for loss last season, while Johnson produced 97 tackles, five PBU and four TFL’s.

    -- Ole Miss is going to have an outstanding offense, but it might field the SEC’s worst defense in 2018. Matt Luke had the interim label removed after guiding the Rebels to an Egg Bowl win at Mississippi St. as 15-point road underdogs. The win over the Bulldogs, Ole Miss’s third in its final four games, allowed it to finish 6-6 SU and 5-7 ATS.

    -- Kentucky is going into its sixth season on Mark Stoops’s watch. He joins Vandy’s Derek Mason and LSU’s Ed Orgeron as the SEC coaches who are on the hot seat in 2018. Stoops has gone winless in back-to-back bowl-game appearances, including last year’s 24-23 loss to Northwestern when he decided to go for two (and failed) after scoring a potential game-tying TD with less than a minute left.

    -- As of Friday afternoon, most shops had WVU installed as a 9.5-point ‘chalk.’ The Volunteers were +300 on the money line, while the total was 61.5 points.

    -- Tennessee fired Butch Jones after last year’s 4-8 nightmare that brought an end to his five-year tenure. The Vols, who finished ’17 with an abysmal 2-10 spread record, lost all eight of their SEC games. They scored a just a 19.8 PPG clip while surrendering 29.1 PPG.

Currie had struck out on a slew of candidates after a fan revolt basically vetoed his desired hiring of former Rutgers HC Greg Schiano. Then when Currie appeared poised to hire Washington St.’s Mike Leach, he was ordered back to Knoxville from his meeting with Leach in California and handed a pink slip. Fulmer took over and decided to go with Pruitt several days later.

    -- UT brings back six starters on both offense and defense (12 total). The offense lost stud RB John Kelly, who ran for 778 yards and nine TDs as a senior. Pruitt has refused to announce a starting QB, leaving fans and pundits to wonder whether it will be sophomore Jarrett Guarantano or Stanford grad transfer Keller Chryst. The fifth-year senior took over the starting job for the Cardinal midway through ’16 and led it to a 6-0 record. Chryst went down with a torn ACL in a bowl-win over North Carolina, though. He made it back for Week 1 last season but wasn’t as effecting and eventually lost his job to K.J. Costello.

Jennings had 97 receptions for 1,096 yards and one TD last year, while Sills had 60 catches for 980 yards and 18 TDs. Sills garnered second-team All-American honors and Jennings was a second-team All-Big-12 selection.

    -- Leading rusher Justin Crawford (1,061 yards LY) is gone, but Kennedy McCoy is ready to take on a bigger load. McCoy rushed for 596 yards and seven TDs with a 4.8 YPC average in ’17. Dana Holgorsen and his staff are high on redshirt freshman RB Alec Sinkfield.

    -- In his first seven years on the job at WVU, ‘Holgo’ is 4-6 in neutral-field games. He is 53-37 overall with only one losing season (4-8 in ’13).

    -- Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern on CBS.

    **B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

    -- South Carolina will host Coastal Carolina at noon Eastern on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, the Gamecocks were favored by 29.5 points with a total of 57. Just like last year when I had South Carolina ‘over’ 5.5 wins (and it cashed before the calendar hit November) for its season win total, I recommended USC to go ‘over’ 7 wins earlier this summer. I’m already on it heavy at even money but unfortunately, the juice has gone so far North (at least -150 at many Vegas shops, as high as -190 at some offshores) for me to continue to endorse this play at the expensive price. Some offshore shops have even moved the number to 7.5 and still have juice on the ‘over’ (around -130 at most).

    -- Kentucky starting OT Landon Young was lost to a season-ending injury last week.

    -- Vanderbilt will play host to Middle Tennessee at 7:30 p.m. Easter on the SEC Network. As of late Friday afternoon, most books had the Commodores as three-point home favorites with a total of 56.5. They thumped the Blue Raiders 28-6 as three-point road ‘chalk’ in last year’s season opener. Check out more on Vandy from my preview earlier this summer.

    -- The lines for FBS games against FCS foes were not yet available when this column was filed late Friday afternoon. Florida is taking on Charleston Southern, Mississippi St. is hosting Stephen F. Austin, Arkansas is squaring off with Eastern Illinois in Chad Morris’s debut, Georgia will welcome Austin Peay between the hedges and finally, Missouri hosts UT-Martin.

    -- My full preview of Alabama vs. Louisville is here.

    -- New head coach Joe Moorhead has suspended star QB Nick Fitzgerald for one game due to a violation of team rules dating back to March. Keytaon Thompson will make his second career start vs. SF Austin. Thompson led the Bulldogs to a 31-27 Taxslayer Bowl victory over Louisville as 6.5-point underdogs. He rushed for 446 yards and six TDs with a 5.9 YPC average last year. For more on MSU, check out my preview here

    -- Texas A&M coasted to a 59-7 win over Northwestern St. on Thursday night in College Station. The Aggies took the cash as 46.5-point home 'chalk.' Trayveon Williams was the catalyst in Jimbo Fisher's debut, rushing for 240 yards and three TDs on 20 carries.

    Cincinnati at UCLA
    August 31, 2018


    By Kyle Markus

    NCAA Football Game Preview - Cincinnati Bearcats at UCLA Bruins


    The Chip Kelly era will begin when the UCLA Bruins open the season in Week 1 with a matchup against the Cincinnati Bearcats. Kelly built a dynasty at Oregon before trying his luck in the NFL. That didn’t work out so now he is back at the college level looking to dominate again.

    It could take a couple years until the Bruins get the right type of recruits in on offense to run his system, but UCLA at least hopes to show some progress this year. Cincinnati struggled to a 4-8 record last season and this is a tall test going on the road in the opener against a school with a lot of tradition.

    It’s easy to see why the Bearcats will be the underdogs in college football gambling.

    The Cincinnati Bearcats and UCLA Bruins will face off on Saturday, September 1st, 2018 at 7 p.m. ET at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.

    We'll have college football odds at BookMaker.eu available for every game of the 2018 NCAA football season.

    Odds Analysis

    UCLA is currently being wagered on as the 14.5-point favorite. The Bearcats are getting slightly more action at that number, especially because a two-touchdown loss would still result in a cover. However, the oddsmakers know what they are doing and wanted to get some more action on Cincinnati. The Bruins are the heavy -675 favorites on the moneyline and aren’t getting much money on that number. The Bearcats are bringing in some action as +492 underdogs.

    The scoring total is listed at 64 points, as the oddsmakers believe a shootout is on the horizon. The “over” is the more popular selection, with nearly 75 percent of the money headed that way in NCAA football odds.

    Quarterback Watch

    Kelly has yet to name a starting quarterback for this game and may choose not to before the contest. There is currently a three-way competition for the job, and while Kelly certainly has an idea who he is going to pick, he is keeping the decision close to the vest.

    Michigan transfer Wilton Speight is one option, as is Devon Modster and the athletic dynamo Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Speight doesn’t seem to fit the zone-read scheme which worked so well for Kelly in Oregon but he does have a lot of experience. Thompson-Robinson could make the most sense long term but it remains to be seen if he is the choice right away or if he still needs to gain experience before taking over. Keep an eye on any announcement regarding this position as it could have an effect on the outcome.

    Key Stat

    287. That’s the number of rushing yards per game UCLA gave up a season ago, which was among the worst in college football. While Kelly will work his magic on the offensive side of the ball, the Bruins are going to need to stop people in order to be competitive.

    Gerrid Doaks is one of the Cincinnati running backs looking to take advantage with a big game. He only had the third-most carries on the team in 2017 but finished as the leading rusher with 513 yards, averaging an impressing 5.9 yards per carry.

    Michael Warren II is also back and if the Bearcats’ running-back-by-committee can carve up big chunks of yardage on the ground this could be a close affair.

    Free College Football ATS Picks

    UCLA might not have the perfect situation at quarterback quite yet and the defense is a work in progress. Kelly is likely to get this thing humming sooner rather than later, but the opener could be a slog. Look for Cincinnati to keep this moderately close and cover the spread.

    UCLA will at least come away with a less-than-inspiring victory at home in college football gambling. Take the “under” on the scoring total.

    College Football ATS Pick: UCLA Bruins 34, Cincinnati Bearcats 27

    Michigan at Notre Dame
    August 31, 2018


    By Tom Wilkinson

    College Football Betting – Michigan at Notre Dame


    It is a matchup of Top 15 teams on Saturday night, as the Michigan Wolverines visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on NBC. It is a huge opener for both head coaches, as Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh has not won many big games in his tenure, while Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly could be on the hot seat in South Bend.

    The winner of this game will likely vault into the Top 10 and be a team to watch in terms of the College Football Playoff, while the loser could be out of contention. Let’s look at Saturday’s game and college football picks.

    Date and Time: Saturday, September 1, 2018, 7:30 p.m. ET
    Location: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, IN
    College Football Odds : Notre Dame -1.5, O/U 47
    Michigan vs. Notre Dame TV Coverage: NBC


    The focus on Saturday night will be on the quarterback position. The Fighting Irish are led by Brandon Wimbush, while the Wolverines have Shea Patterson. Wimbush was not that impressive last season, as he completed just 49% of his passes. He was replaced in the Citrus Bowl by Ian Book and if Winbush struggles again he could get a quick hook. Kelly said that he has changed the offense to take advantage of Winbush’s running ability. “This is much more about calling the offense for who Brandon Wimbush is than who we want him to be, more than anything else, and that’s what you’ll see Saturday night.” Kelly said to the media.

    On the other side, Patterson is a conventional drop back quarterback. Just how good he is we really don’t know because he will be playing for his fourth team in five years. He did play well for Ole Miss last season, but suffered a knee injury in a loss to LSU.

    Michigan was excellent on defense last season, as they were third in the country in total defense. They return two All-Big Ten defensive ends, Rashan Gary and Chase Winovich. Notre Dame is also stout on defense and could have their best defensive line since 2012.

    Players to Watch

    There is no question that this game will come down to the two quarterbacks. Patterson looked really good while at Ole Miss, and if he is as good as advertised the Wolverines could be national title contenders. What we don’t know is how he will handle playing in a hostile environment. On the other side, the Fighting Irish simply have to get great play from Winbush. Kelly changed the offense to suit Winbush, so it should be all about Winbush scrambling around and making plays with his feet and big arm. Kelly pretty much said exactly that to the media. “You have to be a guy that is out there making plays. Now, within the scope of the offense, we’re not drawing it up in the sand. But he’s a playmaker, and he’s got to go out there with the confidence to make plays.”

    Key Stats

    The Wolverines are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings at Notre Dame. The Wolverines are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Wolverines are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games. The Fighting Irish are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Big Ten.

    Looking at the total, the Over is 7-1-1 in the Wolverines last 9 non-conference games. The Over is 11-4 in the Wolverines last 15 road games. The Over is 4-0 in Notre Dame’s last 4 vs. the Big Ten.

    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Picks

    Who do you trust? That is really the question in this game. Harbaugh has not proven he can win big games and we don’t know how Patterson will react to pressure. Kelly hasn’t been much better in big games, and we don’t know if Winbush can avoid making mistakes. I lean a little bit to Notre Dame simply because they are at home, but the safer pick might just be to play the total. Both Michigan and Notre Dame have excellent defenses, so I will take this game under the total.

    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Pick: Under 47
    Michigan vs. Notre Dame Score Prediction: Notre Dame 23, Michigan 20

    Washington vs. Auburn
    August 31, 2018


    By Tom Wilkinson

    College Football Betting – Washington vs. Auburn


    Can you say elimination game in Week 1? The No. 6 Washington Huskies play the No. 9 Auburn Tigers on Saturday in Atlanta with the loser probably out of College Football Playoff consideration. Perhaps Auburn could get back into the discussion if they run the table because they play in the SEC, but Washington is almost assuredly done if they lose this game. The Tigers are slight favorites in this contest, with the total at 48.5. Let’s look at Saturday’s game on ABC and college football picks.

    Date and Time: Saturday, September 1, 2018, 3:30 p.m. ET
    Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
    College Football OddsI: Auburn -2.5, O/U 48.5
    Washington vs. Auburn TV Coverage: ABC


    The Huskies are the higher ranked team, but they are listed as an underdog in this contest. This is a neutral site game in Atlanta, but there is no question that the Tigers will have the edge in crowd support. Washington returns quarterback Jake Browning for his fourth season. He was really good for most of 2016 with 34 TDs and three picks in his first nine games, but he struggled late in that season with a shoulder injury and he never looked the same in 2017. Washington also brings back running back Myles Gaskin who returns for his senior season. He has had at least 1,300 yards in each of his first three seasons.

    On defense, the Huskies will rely heavily on defensive tackle Greg Gaines to stop the run. He has had some injury questions, but all indications are that he will play on Saturday. Washington defensive back JoJo McIntosh said to the media that this year’s defense is superb. “I think it’s the best defense we’ve had,” said McIntosh. “We’ve lost players over the years, but we keep getting more and more players, and we keep getting better and better.”

    The Tigers will rely heavily on running back Kam Martin who averaged 6.1 yards per carry last season. Auburn had three running backs last season who carried the load, but this season it looks to be all about Martin. The Tigers have a good passing attack with quarterback Jarrett Stidham, but they will be going up against an excellent Washington secondary.

    On defense, the Tigers will rely on defensive end Marlon Davidson who had 3.5 sacks and 43 tackles. He will be needed in a big way on Saturday, as the Auburn defense looks to pressure Browning. Washington head coach Chris Petersen is well aware of Auburn’s defense. “Their defense jumps out right away,” Petersen said to the media, “That is a physical group that doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. … Sometimes when guys are moving the ball and scoring points, its broken-down plays when quarterbacks are scrambling.”

    Key Stats

    The Huskies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on grass. The Huskies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games. The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The Tigers are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.

    Looking at the total, the Under is 8-3 in the Huskies last 11 games on grass. The Over is 7-3 in the Huskies last 10 non-conference games. The Under is 5-0-2 in the Tigers last 7 neutral site games. The Under is 12-3-2 in the Tigers last 17 non-conference games.

    Washington vs. Auburn Picks

    The Huskies and Tigers both feature top quarterbacks and solid running attacks, but each team also has a very good defense. Browning has simply not looked like a top quarterback since 2016 and Washington has relied on their running game. The Tigers have Stidham but they also want to run the ball. A lot of pundits have been going with the Huskies in this contest, but I am not sold on Browning and I think Auburn is the better team. Having said that, I think the best option is to play the total. Both teams should be able to slow down the opposing offense, so I will take this game under the total.

    Washington vs. Auburn Pick: Under 48.5
    Washington vs. Auburn Score Prediction: Auburn 24, Washington 21

    Saturday's Best Bet
    August 31, 2018
    By Bookmaker


    Saturday College Football Best Bet

    College football bettors are preparing like it's Christmas morning tomorrow with the first full slate of Saturday games upon us, and thankfully more and more programs are making note of what past CFB selection committees have done and not easing into the year with three or four “cupcakes” right out of the gate.

    There are some great games across the entire CFB landscape on Saturday – along with plenty of cupcake contests – and if you've been cruising around the VegasInsider.com site all week you've likely already come across some great content for some of these games.

    Yet, just like an actual Christmas morning, the more presents that have your name on the better, so I'm not going to shy away from providing even more great betting content for your consumption to hopefully get this first weekend of CFB out of the way with a few more betting units in our pockets.

    Odds per - Bookmaker.eu

    Best Bet #1: USC -26


    The USC Trojans are moving past the Sam Darnold era and into the JT Daniels era with Daniels being named as the starter earlier this week. Daniels is a true freshman – the first time USC has began a season with a true freshman QB since 2009 – and his appointment is why the betting percentages at VegasInsider.com show some heavy support for UNLV + all those points. But HC Clay Helton wouldn't have put this young kid in this role at a prominent program like USC if he didn't think he could hand the expectations and pressure both on and off the field.

    True freshman QB's are ones that I prefer to fade in their first game if it's on the road (and any first true road game really), but at home they are tend to be put in a position to succeed. Daniels is the reigning Gatorade National Player of the Year which definitely helps, and although the Trojans are also replacing their leading rusher and receiver from a year ago, those are positions that the Trjoans are always good at simply reloading. UNLV is not going to be a good defensive team at all in 2018, and this may end up being the perfect opponent for all those new faces on the Trojans attack to produce and gel.

    It's going to be the Trojans defense that's going to have to carry this team for the first few weeks (especially with a trip to Stanford on deck) and they are loaded with returning starters and experience in the back seven. All seven of their returning starters on defense are at least juniors, and with all of them either in the linebacking core or the secondary, there is little chance we see maybe any chunk plays from UNLV's attack. Sustaining drives against that type of experience won't be easy either, and if you are going to be a big road underdog and cover a four-TD spread, you've got to either score with big, explosive plays or sustain drives to shorten the game. UNLV won't be able to do either of those.

    Finally, you'd be remiss to ignore the betting percentages here as it seems a play on UNLV has only gathered so much momentum because many out there are quick to fade this USC team that's often overhyped and has a freshman QB. But many of those same bettors weren't singing the same tune on Thursday when they backed Minnesota and their freshman QB in a nearly identical spot, and UNLV is probably much worse than that New Mexico State team that was missing defensive starters and playing their second game in six days.

    The Trojans have likely heard much of that noise too about starting a freshman QB and trying to get back to the National Title picture and it's tough to imagine a better spot for them to come out at home and make a profound statement to the college football world that they are ready to take that next step this year. I made this line closer to the four-TD mark of -28, but with the Runnin' Rebels now in that dreaded public dog role and me already getting a number below 28, pouncing on the Trojans in Week 1 is a must in what should be a 30+ point win.

    Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

    — Raiders also traded with Buffalo for QB AJ McCarron; Gruden likes to collect QB’s. Oakland gave the Bills a 5th-round draft pick for a guy with three NFL starts. Oakland cut Connor Cook.

    — Word out of Philly: QB Nick Foles will start the Eagles’ season opener Thursday.

    — Notre Dame 24, Michigan 17— Emotion outweighed execution in this game.

    — New Jersey Giants kept four QB’s on their 53-man roster.

    — Dallas Cowboys released veteran kicker Dan Bailey.

    — With rosters expanding on Sept 1, A’s activated eight players Saturday, mostly pitchers.


    **********

    Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a football Saturday

    13) Oakland Raiders traded star LB Khalil Mack to the Bears Saturday, getting two first round picks in return. Consensus on the Interweb is that this is a good trade for Chicago. Teams also swapped four other draft picks; Bears got a 2nd round pick in 2020, Raiders got a 3rd.

    This says that Jon Gruden has all the power in Oakland; GM Reggie McKenzie and owner Mark Davis were supposedly not real anxious to trade Mack, but they also weren’t close to signing him to a new contract, either.

    Chicago quickly gave Mack a 6-year, $141M contract extension. After the trade was announced, Bears dropped from 100-1 to 40-1 to win the Super Bowl; Raiders went from 20-1 to 40-1.

    12) Auburn 21, Washington 16- Huskies gained 398 yards, but scored only one TD; they were 5-14 on 3rd down, -2 in turnovers and missed a short FG. SEC teams are now 9-3 in their last 12 games against Pac-12 opponents.

    11) Penn State 45, Appalachian State 38, OT— 11 years ago this weekend, App State won at Michigan, when the Wolverines were #5 in country. App State was a I-AA team then; they’re in the Sun Belt now, and was a 24-point underdog here- they scored 28 points in 4th quarter after trailing 24-10, but the Nittany Lions tied the game with 0:42 left and avoided the upset in OT.

    10) Cincinnati 26, UCLA 17— 6:00 left in the game, Cincy led 19-17; UCLA had 4th-and-1 from its own 36 with a true freshman (backup) QB playing, and the Bruins went for it, threw the ball, and failed miserably. Poor start to the Chip Kelly era in Westwood.

    9) Maryland 34, Texas 29— For second year in a row, Terrapins upset Texas as a double-digit underdog; this game was delayed a while by stormy weather.

    8) Michigan State 38, Utah State 31— Spartans were favored by 23.5, but needed a 13-yard TD with 2:00 left to hold off the gritty Aggies, who threw for 319 yards and look to be an improved team this season.

    7) I-A teams that lost to I-AA teams:
    — San Jose State (-2.5) lost 44-38 to Cal-Davis.
    — Temple (-14.5) lost 19-17 to Villanova.
    — UTEP (+7) lost 30-10 to Northern Arizona.
    — Kansas (-9) lost 26-23 in OT to Nicholls State.

    6) Rutgers 35, Texas State 7— Bobcats’ only score came on a pick-6; they had zero INT’s all of last season, which is hard to believe. Not sure I’ve ever heard of a team going thru an entire season with no INT’s. Bobcats were -15 in turnovers LY, -14 the year before, going 2-10 both seasons. Hard to win with terrible turnover margins.

    5) West Virginia 40, Tennessee 14- Will Grier passed for 429 yards, five TD’s, as Mountaineers opened their season with a decisive win on a neutral field in Charlotte. Total yardage in this game was 547-301.

    4) Illinois 31, Kent State 24— Huge sigh of relief from Champaign; Illini trailed this game 17-3 at the half. Total yardage was 469-453, not a good omen for the Illini’s Big 14 hopes.

    3) Ole Miss 47, Texas Tech 27— Signing Day for college football is usually the first Wednesday in February; every year on day after Signing Day, I ask here why Texas Tech doesn’t sign more defensive players, and then in the fall, when their defense sucks, I ask again.

    Last two years, Texas Tech lost eight games that they scored 30+ points in.

    2) Buffalo Bills cut WR Corey Coleman, who they acquired from Cleveland this month; Bills now have $50M of dead money on their salary cap- next highest is Dallas, with $26M in dead money.

    1) Cowboys’ TE Rico Gathers was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession by police in Frisco, TX Friday, as he sat on the bubble to make the Dallas roster. No bueno.

    Gathers played basketball at Baylor; not sure what else to say here, other than your job as a player is to give the team reasons to keep you, not reasons to cut you.

    Somehow, Gathers still made the Cowboys’ 53-man roster; we’ll see if he sticks.

    Miami, Fl. vs. LSU
    September 1, 2018
    By Brian Edwards


    Matchup: (8) Miami, Fl. vs. (25) LSU
    Venue: AT&T Stadium Arlington, TX
    Time/TV: Sunday, Sept. 2, ABC, 7:30 p.m. ET


    Miami and LSU are set to collide Sunday night at Jerry World in Arlington for the 2018 Advocare Kickoff Classic at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on ABC. As of Saturday afternoon, most betting shops had the Hurricanes installed as 3.5-point favorites with a total of 47. The Tigers were +145 on the money line (risk $100 to win $145).

    Ed Orgeron’s team finished 2017 with a 9-4 straight-up record and an 8-5 against-the-spread mark. The Tigers bring back five starters on offense and five on defense. They lost 26 lettermen, including star RB Derrius Guice, senior QB Danny Etling (16/2 touchdown-to-interception ratio last year), its top three wide receivers and five of their top eight tacklers.

    The keys to LSU’s offense have been handed to junior quarterback Joe Burrow, a graduate transfer from Ohio State. Burrow participated in a tight battle for the starting QB job at OSU during spring practice. When he didn’t win the gig, Burrow opted to transfer and chose LSU over Ohio and Cincinnati.

    Burrow played at garbage time in 10 games for the Buckeyes over two years, throwing for 287 yards and two TDs without an interception. He had a decorated prep career in Athens, Ohio, and was a four-star recruit.

    The Matt Canada experiment at offensive coordinator didn’t work out and Canada is now the interim head coach at Maryland. Steven Ensminger, who is entering his ninth season on the LSU staff, will take over as full-time OC for the first time in his career. He faces many challenges and doesn’t have a star RB returning like the last five LSU teams have had.

    In addition, sophomore right guard Ed Ingram has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. Ingram started 12 of the 13 games he played in as a true freshman. Junior WR Drake Davis is also suspended indefinitely (legal issues). As a sophomore, Davis had only three catches but they went for 134 yards and two TDs.

    Senior TE Foster Moreau is ‘questionable’ due to an undisclosed injury. The hope is that Texas Tech transfer Jonathan Giles will immediately return to his 2016 form after sitting out last year due to transfer rules. Giles was a second-team All-Big-12 selection in ’16 when he hauled in 69 receptions for 1,158 yards and 13 TDs. There’s also a lot of optimism for true freshman WR Terrace Marshall, who enrolled early and participated in spring practice. He is a five-star recruit that many publications had as the country’s best prep WR last year.

    Phil Steele’s SEC Unit Rankings have LSU’s running backs ranked 11th out of 14 teams. The offensive line is ranked fifth in the SEC and 19th nationally, but the WRs are ranked eighth in the league.

    While the offense is dealing with a lot of change, the LSU defense still has one of the nation’s best DCs in Dave Aranda, who is the highest paid assistant in college football with a $2.5 million salary per year. His group has a pair of preseason first-team All-Americans in cornerback Greedy Williams and LB Devin White.

    White garnered second-team All-American honors as a true sophomore last season. He produced 133 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, five QB hurries, three passes broken up and one interception. Williams, who Steele has ranked as the No. 1 cornerback available for the 2019 NFL Draft, recorded 38 tackles, 11 PBU, six interceptions, 1.5 TFL’s and one QB hurry. Williams earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2017.

    LSU’s defense allowed only 18.9 points per game last season. Sophomore safety Grant Delpit is a preseason second-team All-SEC pick. He had 60 tackles, eight PBU, 3.5 TFL’s, one interception and one QB hurry.

    Steele ranks LSU’s secondary No. 1 in the SEC and No. 4 nationally. Meanwhile, the LBs are second in the SEC and 10th in the nation, and the defensive line is ranked sixth in the conference and 26th in the country.

    Cole Tracy will be LSU’s place-kicker after arriving from Assumption College as a grad transfer. He is a preseason third-team All-SEC selection in Steele’s mag.

    Miami is entering the third season of Mark Richt’s tenure since he arrived after a long run at Georgia. Richt is 19-7 SU and 14-14 ATS to date. The ‘Canes went 10-3 SU and 5-8 ATS last year. They bring back seven starters on offense and seven on defense. Only 17 lettermen were lost.

    Expectations are high in Coral Gables. Most Vegas books have UM’s season win total at 9.5 and it is the favorite to win the Coastal Division and return to the ACC Championship Game. Richt led his alma mater to its first ACC Championship Game appearance in ’17, but UM was missing several key players to injuries and got thumped 38-3 by Clemson.

    Miami won its first 10 games to climb to No. 2 in the national rankings. Richt’s team beat 13th-ranked Va. Tech by a 28-10 count as a two-point home underdog, and then followed up the next week with a 41-8 pimpslap of undefeated and third-ranked Notre Dame as a 3.5-point home ‘dog.

    However, in its regular-season finale at Pittsburgh in a cold-weather game, the Panthers captured a 24-14 win as 11.5-point home underdogs. After the loss to Clemson, the ‘Canes dropped a 34-24 decision to Wisconsin at the Orange Bowl.

    The three-game losing streak to end of the year didn’t erase all the good that was done last year. Richt secured a third straight highly-ranked recruiting class.

    QB Malik Rosier returns for his senior campaign. In his first season as the full-time starter in ’17, Rosier completed 54.0 percent of his passes for 3,120 yards with a 26/14 TD-INT ratio. He can make plays with his legs, too, rushing for 619 yards and five TDs (before subtracting 151 yards from sacks).

    Michael Irvin II came out of spring practice listed as the starter at TE, but he sustained a season-ending knee injury in July. Irvin won’t be around, nor will last year’s top two wideouts in Braxton Berrios and Christopher Herndon. Nevertheless, UM’s WRs are ranked second in Steele’s ACC Unit Rankings.

    Junior Ahmmon Richards is a second-team preseason All-ACC choice. He was a second-team All-ACC selection in 2016, but his season was cut short in ’17 when he went down with an injury in his team’s seventh game. Richards had 24 receptions for 439 yards and three TDs last year. Sophomore WR Jeff Thomas made four starts as a true freshman, making 17 catches for 374 yards and two TDs.

    RB Travis Homer took over as the starting RB when Mark Walton went down with a season-ending injury in late September. Homer ran for a team-high 966 yards and eight TDs while averaging 5.9 yards per carry. He earned second-team All-ACC honors in ’17 and is a preseason second-team All-ACC choice this year. Homer also had 18 catches for 219 yards and one TD.

    Homer will get pushed for touches by true freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard, a five-star recruit who enrolled early and showed his talent during spring practice. The UM RBs are ranked fourth in the ACC by Steele and 20th nationally. Meanwhile, the WRs are second in the ACC and 17th in the country, and the o-line is fifth in the conference and 25th nationally.

    Miami’s defense allowed only 21.0 PPG last season. This unit brings back its top-five tacklers. The LBs are ranked No. 1 in the ACC and seventh nationally by Steele. The secondary is ranked tops in the league and ninth in the nation, and the d-line is third-best in the ACC and 14th in the country.

    Four Miami players are on Steele’s preseason first-team All-ACC defense. These include LBs Shaq Quarterman and Michael Pinckney, in addition to CB Michael Jackson and safety Jaquan Johnson. Junior DE Joe Jackson, who was a third-team All-ACC selection in ’17, is a preseason second-team All-ACC choice.

    Johnson produced 96 tackles, four interceptions and one pick-six, four PBU, two TFL’s, one sack, one QB hurry and three forced fumbles. Quarterman recorded 83 tackles, five PBU, 4.5 TFL’s, four QB hurries and 2.5 sacks. Jackson led the ‘Canes in sacks (6.5) and QB hurries (6).

    Miami has won three straight neutral-site openers dating back to 1984. Since 1986, the ‘Canes are 19-6 vs. current SEC schools, but they are only 3-9 vs. LSU in 12 all-time meetings. They went just 3-6 ATS in nine games as favorites in ’17.
