LSU vs Auburn Pick

A pair of Tiger teams are going to be meeting up in a classic SEC West showdown that will surely have National Championship implications, as the Auburn Tigers host the LSU Tigers.

The Bayou Bengals are clearly the best of the Tigers in the SEC this year, and that should show on Saturday night at Jordan Hare Stadium. Yes, this is the first road game for QB Zach Mettenberger, but it isn’t the first road game for so many of these experienced defenders, who are clearly amongst the best in the nation.

Oregon State vs UCLA Pick

The Pac-12 is going to have a heck of a lot of publicity this week, and the first of the big time clashes on the gridiron on the NCAA football odds pits the Oregon State Beavers against the UCLA Bruins.

We really don’t know a whole heck of a lot about the Beavers yet this year. They have beaten the Wisconsin Badgers at home in a game in which the Reser Stadium faithful stormed the field, but all of a sudden, virtually everyone looks like they can beat the Badgers.

Free College Football Pick: Baylor @ Louisiana Monroe

One of the new sweethearts of the NCAA football betting world, the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks are going to be out for another scalp on Friday night on national television, when they take on the Baylor Bears in a rare home game against a major conference foe.

Just a few weeks ago, this looked like it would be a slam dunk game for the Bears. Now, we’re not all that sure that that’s the case. Remember that Baylor struggled last week against the Sam Houston State Bearkats, falling behind 20-10 at halftime before turning on the jets and coasting to a second half victory.

Kent State @ Buffalo College Football Pick

MAC rivals meet in what will be the first college football betting affair of the weekend, when the Kent State Golden Flashes take on the Buffalo Bulls at UB Stadium.

Kent State doesn’t have much in the way of high hopes this year for a bowl game, but if this is a game that is won, it would be a great start to the MAC season. The team hasn’t gotten much in the way of offense this year at just 338.0 yards per game, and that doesn’t seem to be changing any time in the near future for a club that routinely ranks in the bottom 50 in the nation in virtually every major offensive category.

NCAA Football Free Pick: Arizona State @ Missouri

Points are expected to hit the board in bunches this week on the NCAA football odds, where the Missouri Tigers duke it out with the Arizona State Sun Devils at Faurot Field on Saturday night.

The Sun Devils have gotten off to a 2-0 start to their season, but they really haven’t taken on all that much in the way of competition to date. This is going to be their toughest game of the year to date, as it is the first road game and the first game against a team that is going to likely be in a bowl this year.
