5 Games You Must Bet This Week
Another week of football is already barreling towards us and while last week’s must bet games were fairly balanced out, this week it’s 4 to 1 in favor of the NCAA. There are five must bet games over three days this week, and pay attention to the first one since that takes place this Thursday night.
USC -26 @ Oregon State. I normally hate betting on 26 point favorites, but this one is easy for me. The defense of Oregon State just isn’t there (gave up 36 points to Stanford and 45 to Penn State), and while most offensive starters came back, their quarterbacks are terrible. Not good against USC. I see USC scoring around 50 points, and I’d be stunned to see OSU get up to 20. This is one of the best USC teams we’ve seen, and this is maybe the weakest Oregon State team in four seasons. USC should cover this without too much sweat at all, with all three parts of the team (offense, defense, special teams) scoring. Bet This Game Now
Miami (FL) -8 @ North Carolina. Without TJ Yates, North Carolina can’t stand up to Miami. Miami isn’t as dominating as the Texas A&M game indicated, but North Carolina is a talented team that’s young with holes, but a great quarterback. Without Yates, they have talent but are young with holes. Miami has a solid defense, and is looking the best on offense it has in years. 8 points is good, and if you can find 7, you’d be a knucklehead not to take it. It won’t be a blow out, but this is definitely Miami’s game. Bet This Game Now
Purdue @ Notre Dame. Pick’em. Wow. One win over an incredibly crappy Michigan team and suddenly they’re back? NO! Purdue is the obvious pick here, no question! First of all, Central Michigan is an extremely talented team with an incredible offense. Purdue runs a spread offense that I just can’t see Notre Dame defending. Notre Dame will get their points, but the Fighting Irish on this team might not even by a six win team, and Purdue is still more talented. I’m usually down on the Big Ten, but this game goes to Purdue and QB Curtis Painter will make the Big Ten 2-1 against Notre Dame this year. Take the pick, or any points you can get. Bet This Game Now
Wisconsin -6.5 @ Michigan. Wisconsin is still near the top of the Big Ten. Michigan is as bad as we’ve been seeing. If it was any other team other than storied Michigan, the point spread would be a lot wider. That’s why I’m taking Wisconsin, who has beat far better teams than Michigan this year, and since a touchdown covers, I’m feeling really good about this spread.Bet This Game Now
Green Bay @ Tampa Bay -1. This one could be a little tricky, but I like Tampa Bay. Now if the Bucs are idiots and use Ronde Barber to cover Donald Driver instead of Greg Jennings they’re screwed, but as is the Bucs have a better defense than Dallas, a great offense with a strong running game, and CB Al Harris is out for the season for Green Bay. Rodgers struggled to move the chains when hit, and Tampa is going to hit him a lot more than Dallas did. With questions at corner, and with this young team coming off a loss that was even worse than the score, this just screams of the game where the first time starting QB comes down to Earth. For a straight pick, you should definitely roll on the Bucs.
