J.R. Ewing College Football Picks: 10/1/2016

You should listen to me.  I'm rich.
Well Yee Haw and tip of the cap.  My last week dominated at 5-0!  If you give me a few weeks of teams to analyze, I'll bring you winners.  No slowing down this week, I will get you some cash.

Previous Week: 5-0 (+500)
Season: 12-7-1 (+$430)

Three Top ten matchups highlight the board, and I'll give you picks in two of the three (avoided the third but would take Michigan if you care).  This week the ACC and Pac 12 have the best games to pick, if I do say so myself.

Stanford (+3.5) at Washington (9:00 p.m. EDT)

To me, Stanford is the Pac 12 North King until unseated.  Stanford has beat Washington 7 of the last 8 years, and is already battle tested.  Washington hasn't played nearly as many big games the past five years, so give me the more experienced team that knows how to win.  And I'm getting 3 points.

Notre Dame (-10.5) at Syracuse (Noon EDT)

It's circle the wagons time in South Bend.  After three losses, I think the team (and coaches) will respond.  And this isn't a bowl-bound Syracuse team (at least at the point).  This might help that the game is on the road as the team can focus and execute.  Seems like two TD is achievable.

Miami (-7.5) at Georgia Tech (Noon EDT)

Georgia Tech looks like a pretty mediocre football team.  Meanwhile Miami has stormed through very bad competition.  This pick based on Georgia Tech's ineptitude vs. Clemson, which was the only solid team they faced.  I can't imagine it staying within 10 points.

Clemson (+2) vs Louisville (8:00 p.m. EDT)

Let me get this straight, defending ACC Champion and 2015 National Champion runner up Clemson is underdogs at home?  At night?  In a place they call Death Valley?  And they still have their Heisman contender QB?  Pop the popcorn, tap the keg, this is going to be a great game of two teams who have enough talent to make the playoff.  I love home underdogs who know how to win.

Oregon (-1.5) at Washington State (9:30 p.m. EDT)

Oregon has had a number of big matchups early and not looked bad in any of them (close losses to Colorado and Nebraska).  Washington State has lost to a FCS team and only beat lowly Idaho (who is petitioning to go back to FCS).  Seems like Oregon will win this one, by a FG or more.

Great Saturday for football, the meat of the season is upon us!
