Coming into Week 3 with a 6-3 record ATS, I thought I found four games that were legit winners. First off, I must admit that Virginia Tech call was horrendous. After watching Pittsburgh get romped by Youngstown State and Cincinnati, I had 100 percent confidence that the Hokies would win. In actuality, I should have listened to the recent trends that favored Pittsburgh covering.
Secondly, the NIU call should of been answered, but a crucial fumble on the five-yard line in Army territory killed the pick, as Army had an 80-plus-yard drive, which they capitalized on with a touchdown.
Northwestern and Boston College was a nerve-racking 60 minutes of play. A strong fourth quarter propelled the Wildcats to a nine-point victory and an ATS win.
Once again, my game of the week won, as the Gators (who a lot of betters didn't bother taking) destroyed the favored Vols 37-20. Week 4 was a letdown in my books. A 2-2 record is always better than a losing one. After looking at the lines, trends, weather and injury reports, I have five games that look to be solid picks for Week 4.
