College Football Week Four Predictions: Spread and Straight Up

Kevin Thomas@K_Mart10Contributor IISeptember 19, 2008

In Week Three, I went 6-4-1 against the spread and 9-2 straight up. Not a bad week. Now I am 10-12-1 against the spread and 26-8 straight up for the season.



Baylor at Connecticut (-12.5)

UConn is coming off a big win against Virginia, while Baylor had a big win against Washington St. last week. Like I said last week, I really like this Robert Griffin kid. He will lead the Bears to victory.

Winner: (Spread) Baylor; (Straight Up) Baylor



Wyoming at BYU (-28.5)

BYU dropped half-a-hundred on UCLA last week—enough said.

Winner: (Spread) BYU; (Straight Up) BYU


LSU at Auburn (+2.5)

Auburn squeaked by Mississippi St. last week 3-2 behind excellent defensive play. LSU's QB Andrew Hatch has not been tested by a tough defense yet. Auburn's defense will be too much for LSU, and they will put up just enough points to win.

Winner: (Spread) Auburn; (Straight Up) Auburn


Alabama at Arkansas (+9.5)

'Bama has looked great so far this season, while Arkansas has struggled to put up points.

Winner: (Spread) Alabama; (Straight Up) Alabama


Wake Forest at Florida State (-4)

FSU has two wins over FCS opponents, so nobody really knows a lot about them. What I do know is, last time Wake won 30-0, and you can't expect FSU to not come out fired up. I just have a gut feeling about FSU.

Winner: (Spread) FSU; (Straight Up) FSU


Miami at Texas A&M (+3.5)

Miami looked good against Florida two weeks ago, and Texas A&M hasn't really done anything so far this season.

Winner: (Spread) Miami; (Straight Up) Miami


East Carolina at N.C. State (+7.5)

ECU looked a little sluggish last week against Tulane, while NC State lost to Clemson. ECU will come back with a big win this week because they always get up for these out of conference games against teams from their state.

Winner: (Spread) East Carolina; (Straight Up) East Carolina


Florida at Tennessee (+7.5)

The Gators have way too much firepower for the Vols.

Winner: (Spread) Florida; (Straight Up) Florida


Georgia at Arizona State (+7)

The 'Dawgs are coming off a sluggish win over South Carolina, while the Devils were beaten by UNLV last week. The time change and travel will keep this game close for a while, along with ASU coming back fired up. Georgia wants to come out and prove that last week's performance was a fluke.

Winner: (Spread) Georgia; (Straight Up) Georgia
