Don’t look now, but we are on quite the roll. As of this writing, we’ve hit the last four bets that have went final for over six units. We still have two games tonight, and now I bring you four more plays for this weekend’s action. May the gambling gods be with us.

Wake Forest at Boston College

The Demon Deacons of Wake Forest have been a solid team most of the season. They’ve had two losses, both coming in the last three weeks, and both were road games. Now they travel to Boston College where the Eagles await them. Boston College has lost two of their five home games already on the year. Quite frankly, I don’t think they have the talent to put up with Wake Forest if Sam Hartman is on his A-game. I’m going to lay the points with them and play Wake -5.5 on the road. They should win this game by at least a touchdown.

Ohio State at Michigan

This is probably what the folks at Michigan were envisioning when they hired Harbaugh to take over the program. For the first time in years, they have a meaningful game against Ohio State that they have the potential to win. I’m not saying it will happen, but I do think this game is harder on Ohio State now that they have moved up to 2nd in the country. After an early-season loss at home to a good Oregon team, the Buckeyes have gotten it all together and are performing very well. Michigan has only lost once, it was at Michigan State. The Buckeyes just beat the Spartans at home by 49 points. Both of these defenses are stingy, it will be hard to keep each other out of the endzone, but I think this total is just a little too high. I’m playing the under 64.5 at -106.

Oklahoma at Oklahoma State

The total has dipped in this one, and I feel like we have an opportunity to cash the over at this point. Both teams can score – they average over 30 points per game each. Oklahoma’s defense isn’t as strong as Oklahoma State’s, but they also wont just be walked all over. Meaning that one way or another this is going to be a bit of a sweat. I think that seven touchdowns between the two of these teams is more than reasonable, and that means we need only a field goal or something else to cash. Four of the last five Oklahoma games have been at or over the total posted for this game. State can definitely score, and I think Oklahoma will score on the State defense enough that we get there. Play over 49.5 at -112.

California at UCLA

We’ve hit a few of these underdogs on the season. One of them came last week, so maybe we can grab another today. I’m looking at Cal to beat UCLA. It won’t be easy, and I fully acknowledge that UCLA is the better team in this matchup. However, I think Cal matches up will with the Bruins and they can sneak out a win. If you’re looking at comparissons they both recently lost to Oregon in competitive games, and they both beat Colorado easily. I’m fine with taking my chances that UCLA struggles to stop Chase Garbers and the Golden Bears passing game. I’ll play Cal at +205 to win on the road.
