October 7, 2019 by CFP Staff

The Congrove Computer Rankings at CollegeFotballPoll.com are projecting 3 outright upsets. Last week, the computer was 2-1 straight up and 3-0 against the spread on upsets picks. The computer is 8-2 ATS on upset picks over the last 2 weeks.

This week's opposites are Virginia winning at Miami, Purdue winning at home over Maryland, and Washington State recovering from a pair of consecutive losses to win at Arizona State.

We've selected three games each in the Easy Pickins and Hold Your Horses category. Easy Pickins are games in which the computer expects the favored team to beat the spread while Hold Your Horses picks favor the underdog to beat the srread.

We compare the sportsbooks' average spread with the computer's projection, and feature those games where we believe the computer has the best chance of being right.

When it comes to the Upset picks, we list every game that the computer picks the opposite team of the 'Vegas' favorite. The computer's upset picks have hit 66% against the spread (97-50) since the second week of November of 2017.
