Boise State (-30) by 34.65 over IDAHO - Until Boise State stops running over people, why stop picking them to do so? Idaho allows over 436 yards per game and surrendered 63 points at home to Nevada last Saturday in a 63-17 loss. The Vandals lost 45-10 at Hawaii the week before that and the Broncos just beat the Warriors 42-7 last week. The computer is 6-2 ATS with Boise State and 4-4 with Idaho.
Boise State won 52-14. The computer won SU, won ATS.
Saturday, November 13
AIR FORCE (-29) by 32.74 over New Mexico - New Mexico's 120th-ranked rushing defense will be charged with the task of stopping Air Force's 3rd-ranked rushing offense. Good luck with that. By the way, the Lobos rank 115th in total offense. The computer is 8-2 SU, 6-3 ATS with the AFA. It is 8-1 SU, 5-4 ATS with UNM.
Air Force won 48-23. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
Stanford (-7) by 12.01 over ARIZONA STATE - The Sun Devils have only won 2 of their last 7 games while the Cardinal comes in at 8-1. Stanford may be playing its best ball of the year with a 42-17 home win over Arizona last weekend following a 41-0 win at Washington the previous week.
Stanford won 17-13. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
ALABAMA (-14.5) by 19.06 over Mississippi State - Going out on a tiny limb here, but Alabama has been a different team at home than on the road. The Tide is undefeated in Tuscaloosa and is statistically better than the Bulldogs on both sides of the ball.
Alabama won 30-10. The computer won SU, won ATS.
FLORIDA (-7) by 12.82 over South Carolina - The Gators own South Carolina about as much as any team could own another. Florida is an all-time 23-4-3 in the series and is 18-1 in the last 19 meetings. This game is for the SEC East division title and a berth in the conference championship game. In over 55 years of affiliation with the Southern Conference, ACC and SEC, the Gamecocks have just one conference championship. That came in 1969 during a season in which no other ACC team posted a winning record and the Gamecocks beat no one with a winning record.
South Carolina won 36-14. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
TROY (-8) by 13.53 over FIU - I have to take this game for the simple fact that the computer is 7-1 ATS with FIU and 5-3 with Troy. The Trojans are 6-0 vs. the Golden Panthers, winning 5 of those games by at least 9 points.
FIU won 52-35. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
TCU (-25) by 33.81 over San Diego State - TCU is winning games by an average of 32.9 points. The computer is 4-5 ATS with the Horned Frogs, 5-3 with the Aztecs.
TCU won 40-35. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
MARHSALL (-17) by 21.20 over Memphis - 7 of Memphis' 8 losses have been by at least 22 points.
Marshall won 28-13. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
Virginia Tech (-3.5) by 3.58 over NORTH CAROLINA - Virginia Tech is 21-5 in ACC road games and is 5-1 vs. the Tar Heels since joining the league. The computer is 6-2 ATS with the Hokies and 4-4 with North Carolina. Virginia Tech can claim the Coastal division title with a win on Saturday, coupled with a Miami loss at Georgia Tech.
Virginia Tech 26-10. The computer won SU, won ATS.
Utah (-4) by 11.85 over NOTRE DAME - The Utes were a 7.4-point computer favorite in the preseason and that projected margin has risen to 11.85 which is usually a pretty strong indicator for a successful computer pick. Only concern may be whether or not Utah is hungover from last week's humiliating loss to TCU. The computer is 6-3 ATS with the Irish, 4-5 with the Utes.
Notre Dame won 28-3. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
