The Fearless Five: Week Three Predictions Against The Spread


Fearless5

After another rough week, we are ready to try and redeem ourselves with our week three picks. You couldn’t ask for a better slate of games. Bama and Texas A&M and Nebraska vs UCLA are just a few of this weeks picks. Odds are based on MGM/Mirage lines at 12am Wednesday September 11th. Again, these picks are for entertainment purposes only. Bet at your own risk.

The Fearless Five

1) #1 Alabama at #6 Texas A&M

Spread: Alabama -7 1/2

Who to take: Texas A&M

I like Alabama to win this game, but not by more than a touchdown. Alabama will have a much better game plan heading into this years matchup. They have plenty of film on Johnny Manziel this time around so they know what to expect. Despite that, Johnny Autograph will be able to put up points on the Crimson Tide defense. Tide wins by 3.

2) #16 UCLA at #23 Nebraska

Spread: Nebraska -4

Who to take: Nebraska

Nebraska has a lot to prove to the nation and to themselves. UCLA is playing with a heavy heart which could be a motivator for The Bruins. Look for Nebraska to expose a young UCLA defensive backfield and for The Bruins to expose a young Husker defensive line. Huskers win in  a shootout 48-42.

3) #20 Wisconsin at Arizona State

Spread: Arizona State -5 1/2

Who to take: Wisconsin

Look for The Sun Devils to win by a field goal at home. Wisconsin is  a team that has not missed a beat under new head coach Gary Anderson. The Badgers are tough and have been impressive through the first two weeks of the season. This is one of those gut feeling picks. Expect a letdown for Bucky.

4) Tennessee at #2 Oregon

Sread: Oregon  -27 1/2

Who to take: Oregon

A four touchdown win might seem a bit lofty, but this is Oregon we are talking about. This team is going to put up a ton of points on a below average Tennessee team, and I don’t see The Volenteers giving them much of a fight. Oregon might put up 60 points or more. Prediction, Oregon 63-14 over The Vols.

5) Iowa at Iowa State

Spread: Iowa -2 1/2

Who to take: Iowa State

The Iowa Hawkeyes are, well, a sad group. Kirk Ferentz is one of the worst coaches in the nation, but he gets paid well to under perform. Paul Rhodes on the other hand, knows how to get the most from his players. Iowa State seems to have Iowa’s number, and I think they win outright. Take the points and thank me later.
