Last week I tried experimenting with an all NFL card, considering that’s what’s going to happen after this week. Safe to say, it wasn’t so hot. Last week I only went 2-4, but this is arguably the biggest college football week of the year, Rivalry Week. So let’s make some money to make it even better.
Michigan vs Ohio State: OVER 50
Arguably the best rivalry in college football. Can Jim Harbaugh finally break the streak? Or will the Chase Young led Buckeyes storm into Ann Arbor and ruin everything, like Buckeye fans at the local methadone clinic. The weather is supposed to be terrible for this game; cold and rainy with possible snow. As much as that might push you to the under, don’t. The Over is going to hit, and it’ll hit hard. Shea Patterson and the Michigan offense has come alive as of late, and Ohio State has been one of the most complete teams in the country. It’s going to be a slug fest, but a high scoring one.
Alabama vs Auburn: OVER 49.5
Now we aren’t sure how well Alabama is with Mac Jones under center. Yes, they put up 66 on Ole Miss, but they only put up three in the second half vs Mississippi State. Now Jones gets to face one of the tougher front sevens in the country. Meanwhile, this is Auburn’s biggest game of the year. Bo Nix and company will do their absolute best to play spoiler to Alabama’s playoff chances. Although we have an unproven Quarterback and a true freshman Quarterback squaring off against each other, there are too many stars in this game for there not to be points. Hammer the over.
Wisconsin vs Minnesota: OVER 45
The Big Ten West championship game. The winner gets to face Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship. Minnesota has been this year’s Cinderella story, rowing the boat to a 10-1 record. Wisconsin, meanwhile, lives and dies on the legs of Jonathan Taylor. Now it might seem odd going with the over when there’s a run first team playing, but Taylor is so dominant at running the ball, scores can happen left and right. You already know these teams will empty their entire playbooks out to win this game. Take the over, as I expect there will be a lot of scoring late.
Baltimore vs San Francisco: OVER 46
Yet another “Game of the Year” for the Ravens this season. The past three for them, the Ravens have outscored their opponents 123-33. But, the 49ers defensive line might be Lamar Jackson’s biggest test. Or so, experts say every week. This is going to be another wet game, as it’s supposed to rain about half an inch in Baltimore. But, these teams live on the run game, potentially making the weather a non factor. Both teams have proven time and time again that they can score nonstop no matter what. Hammer that over, and hammer Lamar for MVP.
Cleveland vs Pittsburgh: UNDER 39
The rematch of the infamous helmet smash game. The Steelers have turned to Duck Hodges to try and right the ship, while also being without stars Juju Smith-Scheuster and James Connor. If Cleveland can win, they’d have the tiebreaker over Pittsburgh for potentially the final wildcard spot. But, that offense is hit or miss every week, and they face one of the better defenses in the league. Take the game total under, but take the over on how many after play skirmishes there will be.
New England vs Houston: UNDER 46
I may be one of the few taking the under here, but I have good reasoning. The last time the Texans played a good defense, the Ravens held them to just a garbage time touchdown. Now enters the “historic” Patriots defense. On the other side, the Texans defense has been okay, but the ever so dangerous Patriots offense, looks like a box full of puppies. It’s obvious that Tom Brady is starting to lose a step and it doesn’t help they have no weapons in offense whatsoever. The Patriots hold teams to under 14 points per game, and only seem like they can score 20 on offense. Take the under.
