Home > Big Ten, Locks of the Century, Notre Dame > LOCKS OF THE CENTURY: NCAA Week 3


I don’t want to pump my own tires, but I totally nailed the LSU vs Mississippi State game last night.  Gave you LSU as the road favorite and also took the under.  2 for 2.  Feeling pretty pretttyyy good about myself right now.  Good enough to give the people 5 more Locks of the Century for college football.

#15 Michigan State +5 @ Notre Dame

Very confusing line here.  Notre Dame is on the verge of collapse and leads the country in turnovers.  Meanwhile, Michigan State has looked strong in their first two games, albeit against weak opponents.  Vegas is practically begging people to take Michigan State with this line.  It makes no sense at all…except that it makes perfect.  This is one of the oldest tricks in the book.  Bookmakers are trying to Jedi mind-trick the public into taking Michigan State with this line.  They might have fooled a lesser man, but this isn’t my first rodeo.  The Irish can’t continue to turn the ball over like they have.  This is the week it all comes together for Notre Dame.  The Pick: Notre Dame -5

#8 Oklahoma State +13.5 @ Tulsa

Tulsa is a program on the rise and they can score in bunches, but they won’t be able to keep up with OKST.  The Cowboys have arguably the most explosive offense in the country.  Even though Tulsa is the home team, there will be plenty of Cowboy fans in this intra-state game.  Oklahoma State covers this one. The Pick: Oklahoma State -13.5

Ohio State +2.5 @ Miami(FL)

The Sanction Bowl is missing some of its star players from both teams in what would have been one of the marquee early games of the season.  Ohio State looks to be a long way from being a dominant program and could be staring a 4 or 5 loss season square in the face.  Joe Bauserman SUCKS. There is no getting around it.  Its Miller time in Ohio State, and the sooner they realize it the better.  Bauserman gives them virtually no chance to win.  The Pick: The U -2.5

Northwestern -4.5 @ Army

Is it me or is Northwestern disrespected by Vegas just about every week?  NEWS FLASH: Northwestern is good.  Persa strong baby.  The Big 10 is a deep conference and Northwestern will win 8 games again this year.  One of those 8 games will come here against Army who has struggled against weaker opponents than the Wild Cats. The Pick: Northwestern -4.5

Tennessee +9.5 @ #16 Florida

I love me some Tyler Bray.  He is the best quarterback in this game and Tennessee is a program that is getting stronger.  I don’t think Tennessee wins this game, but they definitely cover.  Florida is a team in transition is ranked #16 on the strength of their name and conference.  I like the Vols to cover and I LOVE the over/under line at 50.5. The Pick(s): Tennessee +9.5 and OVER 50.5

That is six picks in total.  parlay those if you feel like being a thousandaire by Sunday.
