You made some easy money going with our picks last week, so stay away this week. The Law of Averages will rear its ugly head, and this week features a number of games that are atypically hard to read. Is Oregon really only two touchdowns better than UW? How will USC react to the Lane Kiffin firing?
If you’re a gambler, give it a rest this week. Then again, if you’re a gambler then that’s not the way your mind works.
Arizona at USC, USC by 6: USC plays loose in its first game with Ed Orgeron at the helm. Marquise Lee has a big day catching the ball and the Trojans cruise. USC 35-21
Oregon at UW, Oregon by 14: The ESPN College Gameday atmosphere and an athletic defense but UO will pull away, like always. Oregon 41-24
Stanford at Utah, Stanford by 9: The odds makers seem to think that Utah played well to keep so close to UCLA. I think UCLA just played exceptionally poorly. Can Wilson throw even more interceptions this week? Stanford 42-21
Colorado at ASU, ASU by 25: Colorado won’t win this one, but it has some playmakers and is headed in the right direction. ASU 31-14
Cal at UCLA, UCLA by 24 1/2: UCLA wants to prove it’s still elite after a subpar showing at Utah. Cal’s injuries are piling up. UCLA 52-17
OSU at WSU, WSU by 1: For the second straight week, Vegas has the Cougs winning by a single point. For the second straight week, I have them winning, but not by as much as last week. WSU 28-24
Last week: 5-0 straight up, 4-1 against the spread. Overall: 5-0, 4-1
