The time to seriously talk college football playoffs is almost upon us, but not much will be revealed about the nation’s top teams. Playing point spreads in week 7 may get a little tricky, so the following are The Gureling Truth’s picks on a baker’s dozen or so of big games; all point spreads are provided by TGT Network sponsor My Bookie.
Washington State -22.5 at California
The Cougars seem to be a real contender this year and the reason my just be a vastly improved defense. The Cal Golden Bears are improved, nut still nowhere at the leof the Cougars.
Prediction: Washington State 37, Cal 17
Texas Tech +3 at West Virginia
Both of these teams have excellent passing games and improved defense’s and with the Big 12 seemingly wide open now this game has taken on an added importance. Look for the homefield advantage to be the deciding factor in this game.
Prediction: West Virginia 27, Texas Tech 24
TCU -6 at Kansas State
This looks to be a tough road test for the Horned Frogs, but in the end they have way too much fire power for Kansas State.
Prediction: TCU 38, Kansas State 20
Florida State -7 at Duke
Another chance for the Blue Devils to make a statement about their program. I just think if you look back at the Devils other chance against the Hurricanes and how that ended up all signs point to a Seminole win.
Prediction: Florida State 31, Duke 21
Utah +13 at USC
I am really not sure what to think of the Trojans, but the Utes are a solid team that will stay in the game.
Prediction: USC 34, Utah 27
Oklahoma -8 at Texas
All of the sudden this game has some intrigue as the Sooners lost to Iowa State and the Longhorns have played much better as of late. I think Texas keeps it close.
Prediction: Oklahoma 31, Texas 27
Ohio State -24 at Nebraska
I think the Buckeyes are just flat out a lot better than the Cornhuskers.
Prediction: Ohio State 44, Nebraska 17
Arkansas +31 at Alabama
Bama wins easy, but 31 points is a lot of points to give the razorbacks.
Prediction: Alabama 41, Arkansas 20
Baylor +26 at Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State wins easy, but Baylor can score enough to cover the spread.
Prediction: Oklahoma State 48, Baylor 28
Missouri +30 at Georgia
Missouri is terrible and Georgia looks like a top 5 team in the country, so to me there is no question about this game.
[What? No prediction for this game? Okay, let’s go with Georgia 47, Misssouri 3. –Ed.]
Texas A&M +3 at Florida
I think the Aggies may be the better team, but they seem to find ways to lose game and Florida at home will find a way to win.
Prediction: Florida 24, Texas A&M 20
Oregon +10 at Stanford
I think that Willie Taggart is the right guy to lead the Ducks back to national prominence, but right now Stanford is just a better team.
Prediction: Stanford 31, Oregon 17
Georgia Tech +6 at Miami
This is my upset special! I like Tech’s triple option to cause the Canes all kinds of problems and win this game.
Prediction: Georgia Tech 31, Miami 27
Auburn -7 at LSU
Auburn is starting to hit it’s stride and I look for them to take care of LSU rather easily.
Prediction: Auburn 34, LSU 13
