17 Feature Picks

November 7, 2018 by Dave Congrove

This week we highlight 17 games in our Feature Picks, including 6 games projected as outright upsets by the computer.

9 of the 17 selections are games in which the favored team is expected to cover the spread. Among those are Arizona State at home over UCLA, and LSU on the road at Arkansas.

There are just 2 picks where we have the underdog covering and one of those - Maryland at Indiana - has the 'dog winning outright.

Of the 6 upset picks, only one is confirmed by the computer trend line as a solid play. Texas Tech is a 4.19-point computer favorite at home over Texas based on this week's projected margin, but the trend line drives that number up to just under 6. The big question mark for the Red Raiders is at quarterback where freshman starter Alan Bowman is out after re-aggravating a collapsed lung injury he originally suffered in the WVU game on September 29. Sophomore Jett Duffey has seen quite a bit of action in relief this season.

Last week's Feature Picks went 9-1 straight up and 6-4 against the spread.
