Feature Picks: Game Added

October 3, 2019 by CFP Staff

The Congrove Computer Rankings at CollegeFotballPoll.com are projecting just 3 outright upsets. Last week, the computer was 5-2 straight up and against the spread on 7 upsets picks.

This week's opposites include Arizona and Northwestern winning road games at Colorado and Nebraska, respectively.

We had originally selected three games in the category of Easy Pickins, but a fourth has been added with the Georgia Southern at South Alabama game new on the list.  The original four are Auburn at Florida, Pitt at Duke, and Tulsa at SMU. Last week, our picks in this category went 3-0 straight up and 3-0 against the spread.

Our 5 choices for the 'Hold Your Horses' category include Washington at Stanford and Illinois at Minnesota. Our picks in this category last week 5-0 straight up but just 2-3 against the spread.

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 65% against the spread (89-48) since the second week of November of 2017.
