We started the season by cashing a ticket on Western Kentucky as they easily covered the spread last night.

$5 Friday Pick – Get a ATS pick for just $5 every Friday of the football season. This week’s game features a David vs. Goliath match-up (Power 5 vs. Group of 5).
Weekend of Big Games
This weekend is loaded with great match-ups! This is one of the best opening weekends of college football I can remember. Oklahoma vs. Houston, Georgia vs. North Carolina, Alabama vs. USC, LSU vs Wisconsin, Notre Dame at Texas and more!
The 3 games I’m looking forward to watching the most:
1) Clemson at Auburn – Clemson has huge expectations and is going on the road. Auburn is going to be ready for this game. Do they have the playmakers to hang with DeShaun Watson and company? The crowd keeps Auburn in this one but don’t look for the upset.
2) UCLA at Texas A&M – So much is riding on this game for A&M. A loss will really turn the heat up on Coach Sumlin. It’s got a great match-up as UCLA QB Josh Rosen must avoid sack master Myles Garret of A&M. This game is huge for the Pac-12 as it could get a road win over the SEC.
3) Ole Miss at Florida State – For Ole Miss, this is a chance to focus on football and not the scandal of NCAA violations from the offseason. The ‘Noles had a long offseason after being demolished by Houston in their bowl game. I’ve got a feeling this game gets decided in the final minute Monday night.
