College football gambling picks: Week 10

Things just didn’t go our way last weekend. The college football gambling picks dipped under .500 for the first time all season at 52-55. We went 2-8 last week, and I am disappointed in my performance.

So are friends and family. They haven’t spoken to me in weeks. I called to catch up with great aunt Gladys, who said, “Call me when you can actually pick some winners, you punk ass bitch” and hung up the phone.

We’ve got to get back on track in week 10, otherwise the family reunion could turn be a mess.

Let’s make some cash.

Boston College ML @ Syracuse

You can take Boston College at +3, but why do that when betting them on the moneyline will make you more money? The Eagles are winning this game outright, and it’s more so that Syracuse just stinks. A flatout stinky squad in 2019. The Orange are 0-5 against Power 5 teams and are being outscored by over 100 points combined in those games. Start your Saturday off with an easy win.

Bowling Green -6.5 vs. Akron

You didn’t think I’d be all over the Bowling Green-Akron matchup this week, did ya? I’ve been a firm supporter of the Bowling Green fade in 2019 especially when Notre Dame covered as 55.5-point favorites a few weeks ago, but I’m going the other way this week. Akron is 0-8 and This is a team that lost to UMass, which gives up 50 points per game. Not even an exaggeration. It’s 2-6 vs. an 0-8. If you cannot get excited for this one, I don’t know what to tell ya.

Florida +6 vs. Georgia

Let’s go big game hunting. Maybe this is due to offseason expectations, but I have been far more impressed by Florida than I have Georgia this season. Both teams had the bye week to prepare, and Dan Mullen is starting to blossom as one of the top coaches in the sport. The lone loss for the Gators came against top-ranked LSU in a game Florida led in the third quarter. Having said that, I still think Georgia wins this game, but it will be by a field goal either way.

Kansas State -6.5

I know Kansas could have taken down Texas, and Les Miles’ magic returned to beat Texas Tech, but I just cannot in good conscious bet on the Jayhawks here. It’s a major letdown spot for Kansas State after the win over Oklahoma. All signs point to a Kansas cover but after a tough week, it’s not a bad idea to fade your own brain. Plus, the last Kansas win in this rivalry came in 2008. That was a long time ago. Gimme K-State.

Illinois -20 vs. Rutgers

It was a real low point on the Deceptive Speed Podcast this week. Every preview show, my co-host Sean Maloney and I pick three gambling picks to bet on. We both stumbled on Illinois-Rutgers. Game of the century. But Rutgers is next-level awful, and giving them only 20 points against a .500 Illinois team is an insult to the rich history that is Fighting Illini football. Rutgers is 0-5 in Big Ten play and is being outscored 207-14 in those games. Nearly 200 points worse. Yikes.

Northwestern/Indiana UNDER 43.5

I like Indiana to cover, but I like the under in this game way more. Northwestern has such an incredibly awful offense, but the defense has not been terrible. The Wildcats scored one touchdown in October. They have a combined three points in their last two games. Hammer that under like your life depends on it.

SMU ML @ Memphis

Just like Boston College earlier, why take SMU +6 when taking them to win outright pays out more money? SMU has won every game this season and has already beat a ranked opponent on the road this season, while Memphis is coming off a win over Tulsa in which they needed a missed extra point to seal it. SMU has covered in every road game its played this season. They’re winning this one outright.

Oregon/USC UNDER 61.5

I’m still a believer in this Oregon defense despite a couple bad weeks. Every trend points to the under here. USC games have gone under in four of their last six games. Oregon games have gone under in eight of their last 11. I think the Ducks get to 30, and USC does not. Under. Under. Under.
