Excited Hank? Excited

No. 1 vs No. 3 is not a bad way to kick things off. Can see this one being a bit of a defensive struggle so taking the unders for the first bet of the year.

I fancy Memphis +3.5 against UCLA. It's a very early kickoff for UCLA. Plus, they're poor against the run and that's Memphis' strength.

Also, Oklahoma State -13.5 against Pitt. I don't see how Pitt can keep up with OK. St's offense. They will try to run the ball to shorten the game but eventually they will have to throw and their passing offense is poor.

Masterclass by Clemson this. Haven't had to wait long for another star QB by the looks of things, Bryant has been excellent but that D is incredible.

N.C State +11.5 at Florida State - FSU are starting a freshman qb and have not played since Sept. 2nd.

Texas Tech +6.5 at Houston - Tech's high powered offense will wear out a decent Houston defense. Houston is struggling with injuries at receiver and may not be able to keep up.

Anyone got an opinion on the UNLV @ Ohio State game?

The Buckeyes haven't exactly been pulling up trees this season and 40 points is a big number.

Sam Darnold hasn't been as good as advertised and could be missing his top 2 receivers tonight.

WSU +4.5
Over 60.5

Maryland @ Minnesota - Maryland is down to it's 3rd string qb and is going up against a Minnesota defense that is only giving up 8 points per game.

Minnesota -13

Expect the Wolverines to show up this week after the loss to Sparty. Penn State formidable but I like the 8 point start for Michigan in a must win game.

OSU getting a beatdown in Iowa Shocked
Report Hank Hill November 8, 2017 9:46 PM GMT
Some great matches this week. Mia v ND, Okl v TCU, Aub v Geo, even Clem v FSU should be entertaining, though it's a shame it won't be what it could have been. At first glance I'm liking Iowa to cover and TCU looks some value with their d. MSU v OSU looks like the best value so far though. OSU are far too skinny for me. Who knows where their heads will be after the smackdown they just got handed. Going the other way MSU are on a great roll having just taken down Penn and already taking care of big rival Mich. My team - Texas is 5 td fave against Kansas even though our offense is toothless - that's how bad Kansas are Laugh

I really like Michigan State getting 17 points on here. Their rush defense is very good and can keep the Ohio State rush offense in check.
Georgia will have their hands full with Auburn who have a chance to make the SEC championship game if they beat Georgia and Alabama. It should be a close game and i'll take the Tigers +2.5.
Notre Dame and Miami is one of the great rivalries. Miami will have the slow down the potent Irish running game. I'm not sure they can do it. I'll take Notre Dame -3.

Going to a bowl baby Grin Coaching switch has worked out perfectly. Herman got the belief back and 6 wins is fantastic - considering how close USC, Okl and Okl St matches were it could have been a truly amazing first season. Also glad to see Charlie Strong going well at S Fla - worked out for both teams.

I'm having a wee tickle on Ohio State -12.5 on here. Michigan don't have a lot left at qb due to injuries.
I also like Stanford +2.5 later on against Notre Dame. The Cardinal are so tough to beat at home with their punishing rushing attack.

Amazing week. Miami and Bama going down has made one hell of a mess sorting out the top 4.

Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, The Ohio State, easy.

Auburn smashed Georgia and then smashed Bama who were both no. 1 when the games were played. Have to be in - if Georgia beats them in the rematch different story. Ohio State is a stretch, think Penn State are better than them. If the top 4 all win this week the playoffs will choose themselves but the chances of that are fairly slim IMO, should be at least one slip up then the debates will be on for young and old.

ALABAMA Crimson Tide has had numerous great players that have come through their GOLF program over the years. One of the best known is Jerry Pate, who has competed in the Walker Cup, garnered All-America honours, captured the US Amateur, won the US Open, was named PGA Rookie of the Year, and went on to enjoy a successful career on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour. Other players that played with the Tide include current PGA Tour rookie Bud Cauley, Justin Thomas, Steve Lowery & Jason Bohn.

Surely JUSTIN THOMAS will make his way to the game - all the way from HAWAII ! (and back again for the SONY OPEN) Devil

Jalen Hurts might as well put his transfer papers in now because that's the last game he ever starts for Alabama at quarterback.
