This past Saturday’s profitable run started with the right call in Duke’s 27-21 victory against Wake Forest as a four-point road favorite. Our home-town Wisconsin Badgers came through with a 31-21 victory against Minnesota that covered the 2.5-point spread on the road and in our final pick, the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame lost a 38-36 heartbreaker against rival Stanford, but they still managed to cover as 3.5-point underdogs on the road.
Here are this week’s final selections for the season:
CFB Last Week: 3-0-0
CFB Season: 21-17-0
Take SAN DIEGO ST (-6.5) over Air Force
The Aztecs come into this Mountain West title game with a perfect 8-0 straight-up record in conference play. They just missed-out on a perfect run through the MWC against the spread after this past Saturday’s 31-14 victory against Nevada as 17-point home favorites ended as a “push”. The key to their success this season is a ground game that is ranked 15th in the nation complementing a defense that is ranked ninth in points allowed (16.6).
Air Force won the MWC with a SU record of 6-2, but it is coming off a disappointing 47-35 loss to New Mexico as an 11.5-point road favorite. The Falcons fell behind by 17 points at the half and they could never close the gap. This performance does not bode well for this Saturday’s matchup as they will have an even tougher time trying to slow down San Diego State after getting torched for 377 yards on the ground in last Saturday’s losing effort.
Take CLEMSON (-5.5) over North Carolina
Clemson has everything on the line in this ACC title game following a perfect 12-0 SU run through the regular season that has the Tigers ranked No. 1 in the nation. It is highly unlikely they will stumble against a North Carolina team they have beaten SU in five of the last six meetings. Clemson’s solid balance on offense along with a shutdown defense that is allowing just 18.8 points a game will be enough to keep the winning trend in this matchup going in its favor.
Give credit to the Tar Heels for their current 11-game winning streak that includes a perfect 8-0 SU run through the ACC, but their overall strength of schedule still leaves some big question marks heading into this title game. It will be a tall task for North Carolina’s defense to contain Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and despite the fact that the Tar Heels are averaging 41 points a game, they will struggle to keep pace against the Tigers’ defense.
Take IOWA (+3.5) over Mich St.
Iowa has been the biggest surprise in the Big Ten this season and is more than poised to take that next step to a spot in the College Football Playoff with a SU win in this Saturday’s conference championship. The Hawkeyes’ strength of schedule has been questioned, but road wins both SU and ATS against Wisconsin, Northwestern and Nebraska gives them a strong edge in this neutral-site title game.
The Spartans closed-out their regular season with a 55-16 romp over Penn State as 7.5-point home favorites and they have now covered in five of their last six games. One of the main reasons we are going against Michigan State in this matchup is a costly 2-6 record ATS in its last eight games against the Hawkeyes. This should remain a close battle and right now that extra half-point in Iowa’s favor is looming big.
