Last week, against the spread I went 4-6 and 7-3 straight up. Not too bad to start the season.
ThursdayClemson at Georgia Tech (-5)
The Tigers defense has enough athletes and speed to stop the triple option. Look for some big plays by C.J. Spiller
Winner: (Spread) Clemson; (Straight Up) Clemson
TCU at Virginia (+11)
The Horned Frogs are good again this year, while the Cavaliers are terrible.
Winner: (Spread) TCU; (Straight Up) TCU
Purdue at Oregon (-12)
The Ducks played badly last week, they'll make up for it this week.
Winner: (Spread) Oregon; (Straight Up) Oregon
North Carolina at Connecticut (+4)
The Tarheels look to be ACC contenders this season, while the Huskies desperately miss RB Donald Brown.
Winner: (Spread) North Carolina; (Straight Up) North Carolina
Central Michigan at Michigan State (-14.5)
The Chippewas have a good offense led by QB Dan Lefevour. They'll be able to stay in the game with the Spartans but not pull it out.
Winner: (Spread) Central Michigan; (Straight Up) Michigan State
South Carolina at Georgia (-7)
Historically, the Gamecocks always play the Bulldogs close. However, I think Georgia has too much offense for South Carolina.
Winner: (Spread) Georgia; (Straight Up) Georgia
USC at Ohio State (+6.5)
Finally, the game everyone's been waiting on. USC has too many athletes for OSU, but the fact their going with a freshman QB will help the Buckeyes stay in the game.
Winner: (Spread) Ohio State; (Straight Up) USC
