College Football Week 10 Predictions: Spread and Straight Up

Kevin ThomasContributor IIOctober 31, 2008

Through nine weeks of the season, I am 28-23-2 against the spread and 46-18 straight up.



Miami at Virginia (-2)

Virginia has been playing well as of late, but Miami has too many athletes.

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


West Virginia at Connecticut (+3.5)

WVU looked awfully good against Auburn.

Winner: (Spread) West Virginia; (Straight Up) West Virginia


Auburn at Mississippi (-6.5)

I've just got a gut feeling that the Tigers will pull this one out.

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


Tulsa at Arkansas (+7)

Tulsa is for real, and Arkansas is really bad.

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


Tennessee at South Carolina (-5.5)

The Gamecocks have been playing better as of late, and the Vols are terrible.

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


Florida at Georgia (Neutral Site) (+6.5)

Tebow is too much for the Dawgs. The Gators will be looking for revenge after the Bulldogs all stormed the field after scoring their first touchdown last year.

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


Oregon at California (-3)

I really like Oregon's team this season.

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


Texas at Texas Tech (+3.5)

Is this finally the week Texas gets upset? I don't think so. The Longhorns offense will not be stopped, and Will Muschamp will have his defense playing well enough to win.

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


Wisconsin at Michigan State (-5.5)

Javon Ringer will run all over the Badgers.

Winner: (Spread) Michigan State; (Straight Up) Michigan State


Clemson at Boston College (-3.5)

Clemson is 0-fer on the season against the spread. That will change this week. Dabo Swinney will have the Tigers ready to go, and they will play with two quarterbacks with Willy Korn and Cullen Harper. The return of C.J. Spiller will help the Tigers a lot this week.

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


BYU at Colorado State (+14.5)

BYU's offense is way too high-powered for the Rams.

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


Florida State at Georgia Tech (-2)

The Seminoles have looked really good this season. The Yellow Jackets have kept on winning. I think FSU has too much speed on offense and defense for Georgia Tech.

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