Off to its best start since 1975 and armed with its highest ranking since 1978, unbeaten San Diego State has its sights set on a New Year’s Six bowl. The 18th-ranked Aztecs face perhaps their biggest obstacle in that regard when they host Boise State in Mountain West play on Saturday night.

The Aztecs, led by Heisman Trophy contender Rashaad Penny, have won back-to-back Mountain West championships, but head coach Rocky Long says most people east of the Rocky Mountains “know who Boise State is and they don’t know who the rest of us are. … Those people associate our league with Boise because of history.” Never mind, as Long is quick to point out, that the Broncos, also known for their home blue “Smurf Turf”, have reached the Mountain West title game just once in the past four years and have lost five league games over the last two years.

Broncos are 2-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. Aztecs are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win. Broncos are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

Oklahoma vs. Texas Football Spread Pick from Al McMordie: October 14th 2017

At 3:30 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Oklahoma Sooners minus the points over Texas.  Last week, the Sooners lost by 7 points, as a 31-point favorite, at home, to Iowa State.  So, they failed to cover the pointspread by a whopping 38 points.  But that exceptionally poor performance sets up our play on this Saturday.  And one of the things I like to do is play on College Football teams off an upset loss, in which they failed to cover the spread by 35 or more points.

And if our team is playing an opponent off a straight-up and against-the-spread win, then our system has gone 63% ATS since 1980.  That’s one reason I really like the Sooners to bounce back.  Another is that Oklahoma has quietly dominated away from home in the regular season when it plays winning teams.  It’s 22-5 straight up and 21-6 ATS in this situation, including a perfect 10-0 SU/ATS when priced from -3.5 to -10 points.  Take Oklahoma.  Good luck, as always…Al McMordie.

TCU vs. Kansas State Football Over-Under Pick from Jesse Schule: October 14th 2017

TCU Horned Frogs vs. Kansas State Wildcats
NCAAF Over-Under Pick: Under 54 points (October 14th 2017)

The Horned Frogs come into Manhattan with a 5-0 record, and a vastly improved defense since losing 30-6 here in Kansas last year. The Wildcats are always tough defensively at home at Bill Snyder Stadium, especially in October in bad weather. The forecast is calling for rain and wind this Saturday, and that might force both teams to lean heavily on the ground game.

TCU has failed to reach the total in each of it’s last four games during the month of October, and the under is 4-1 in their last five versus BIG12 teams. Last week the Horned Frogs allowed just three points in the first half versus West Virginia, and I expect another solid effort from the TCU defense this week.
