Week one was an absolute disaster for The Fearless Five. We went 1-4 on the week, but hey, it could have been worse. We could have been beaten by North Dakota State (sorry K State Fans). As always we would like to remind everyone that The Fearless Five is for entertainment purposes only, and we are not responsible for the results of your betting. Point spreads according to MGM/Mirage
The Fearless Five: Week Two Predictions Against The Spread:
1) #15 Texas at BYU
Spread: Texas -7
Who to take: Texas
The Longhorns looked good in their opener and this might be the season where Mack Brown turns things around. I just do see how BYU will be able to stop The Longhorns from putting points on the board, and I don’t thing The Cougars can keep up with them. It’s simple math and I think this is one of the better bets this week. Lay down the points and reap the benefits.
2) #6 South Carolina at #11 Georgia
Spread: Georgia -3
Who to take: South Carolina
Georgia is coming off a tough loss to Clemson and South Carolina fresh off a win over North Carolina. South Carolina showed that it can score without the offense putting up all the points. They also have Heisman candidate Jadeveon Clowney. The Gamecocks have the advantage on offense, defense, special teams, and most importantly coaching. You won need the three points, South Carolina wins outright.
3) #2 Oregon at Virginia
Spread: Oregon -22
Who to take: Oregon
The Oregon Ducks will probably lead by 22 points at the half. There is way too much offense for Virginia to handle. The Cavaliers have a hard time scoring as well, so this game could get really ugly. Give up the 22 points, hell give up 28 if you want to. It wont make a difference.
4) #14 Notre Dame at #17 Michigan
Spread: Michigan -4
Who to take: Michigan
The Wolverines blew out Central Michigan by 50 points last week. They look like the most complete team in The Big Ten right now. Notre Dame beat Temple by 22. This matchup favors Michigan. They are playing at home, have a much better quarterback, defense, and offense than the Irish. Notre Dames chances of winning this game are about as real as Manti…you know the punch line. Lay down the points, Michigan wins big.
5) Southern Miss at #22 Nebraska
Spread: Nebraska -28 1/2
Who to take: Southern Miss
Nebraska is too unpredictable to lay down 28 1/2 points on. They really struggled last week and there are questions that still need to be answered on defense. The Husker offense was way to conservative and you never know when offensive coordinator Tim Beck with hide his offense in a shell. Take the points. Southern Miss with lose the game but not by the spread.
