It’s a good thing I don’t actually put money on my Vegas picks.

This guy went 0-5 at the spread, giving everyone full clearance to use these picks as fade material when it comes to throwing down money on college football odds.

Texas 31, Kansas State 21

Maybe things are finally turning around for Mack Brown and the Longhorns. Johnathan Gray delivered a solid performance with 141 rushing yards and two touchdowns, his first boosting the team to an early 17-0 lead.

SU: L / ATS: L / OU: L

Maryland 37, West Virginia 0

The panic button can finally be pressed in Morgantown. The Mountaineers had the same amount of turnovers as they did first downs — six — and seven penalties. It was a complete disaster in rainy weather conditions in Baltimore, and now one has to wonder how safe Dana Holgorsen’s job is.

SU: L / ATS: L / OU: W

Baylor 70, Louisiana-Monroe 7

I’m buying all the Baylor Bears stock I can get. This team is averaging over 69 points in their first three games of the season. It doesn’t matter that they’re playing these smaller schools right now; this offense is impressive and would be a complete nightmare for any defensive team. Now that their own defense is making plays, the Bears could be surprise favorite to win the entire conference.

SU: W / ATS: L / OU: W

  • Kansas 13, Louisiana Tech 10 – SU: W / ATS: L / OU: W
  • Texas Tech 33, Texas State 7 – SU: W / ATS: L / OU: L


  • Straight up: 23-7
  • At the spread: 7-15
  • Over/under: 11-11
