Brandon Shively betting the LSU Tigers -21 points on September 23rd 2017

Syracuse Orange vs. LSU Tigers
College Football Prediction: LSU -21 (September 23rd 2017)

LSU takes on Syracuse and laying the points is the best move here.

The Tigers are going to just wear the Orange defense down. Syracuse just hasn’t been tested with an offense like this one that LSU puts out.

LSU has put up 401 yards per game and they’ve put up 217 rush yards per game out of that. LSU has been notorious over the previous years to just wear teams down and eventually run all over them. They’ve done that this season with Derrius Guice who has 300 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Look for LSU to just pound the ball right at this Cuse line, as they’ll eventually start to see more and more open gaps.

Take LSU.

Mississippi State vs. Georgia Football Spread Pick from Will Rogers: September 23rd 2017

Mississippi State vs. Georgia
College Football Spread Pick: Georgia -5.5 points (September 23rd 2017)

The set-up: Two undefeated SEC schools meet Saturday “between the hedges” at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. The Miss. State Bulldogs are 3-0 and entered the AP’s top-25 poll at No. 17 (first ranking since November of 2015), after their 37-7 “take-down” of then-No. 12 LSU last Saturday. The Georgia Bulldogs are also 3-0 and ranked No. 11, slightly up from the school’s No. 15 ranking in the preseason. Georgia’s best win of 2017 so far, was its 20-19 win at then-No. 24 Notre Dame in South Bend on Sep. 9. Georgia has won 10 of its last 11 meetings with Mississippi State and leads the all-time series 17-6.

Mississippi State: Dual-threat QB Nick Fitzgerald was named the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Week after finishing with 260 yards of total offense against LSU, while accounting for four TDs (two passing and two rushing). He’s completing 61.4% on the season with seven TDs and only one INT plus is the team’s second-leading rusher with 240 yards (7.7 YPC) and five TDs. RB Aeris Williams leads the way with 336 rushing yards on 7.0 YPC. The Bulldogs average 297.7 YPG on the ground (11th) and are 9th in scoring at 47.7 PPG. Considering the defense has allowed just 9.3 PPG (6th) on 206.0 YPG (3rd), it’s not hard to see why MSU is 3-0.

Georgia: Freshman QB Jake Fromm has passed for five TDs in three games since taking over for the injured Jacob Eason early in the season opener. “We have to get him to make good decisions,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart told reporters Tuesday in reference to Fromm. “As long as he does that, we can play winning football.” RB Sony Michel (160 yards on 5.5 YPC) is expected back after sitting out Samford with a minor injury and joins Nick Chubb (290 yards on 6.6 YPC) to give Georgia a lethal one-two RB punch. Georgia’s D has played very well, allowing 14.3 PPG (21st) on 266.0 YPG (16th). The fact that the team’s rush D allows just 71.0 YPG (5th) could be a huge factor against MSU’s powerful rushing attack.

The pick: Mississippi State has scored 35 or more points in eight of its last 10 games (dating back to last year) but this will be the Bulldogs’ first road test of 2017. “It’s our first SEC road game, which adds different challenges to the picture,” head coach Dan Mullen told reporters regarding the first meeting between the schools since 2011. Back-to-back games against the nation’s 12th-ranked team (LSU last Saturday) and now its 11th-ranked team (Georgia right here), is a pretty big ‘hill to climb.’ I’ve noted already that Georgia has won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two schools and I’ll also add that Georgia has fared well at home vs. SEC-West foes here at home, going 10-3 its last 13 contests. I’m laying the points with Georgia.

Arkansas State vs. SMU Football Point Spread Pick: September 23rd 2017

Arkansas State vs. SMU
College Football Point Spread Pick: Arkansas State +6 (September 23rd 2017)

I’m recommending a play on Arkansas State plus the points on Saturday afternoon. SMU put 36 points on the board against TCU last time out, but allowed 56.  The Mustangs have allowed TCU and North Texas to complete 56 of 77, 73% of their passes, for 789 yards, with 7 TDs and just 2 INTs.  The porous pass defense plays right into Arkansas State’s strength, the passing game led by QB Justice Hansen.  The ASU signal caller has completed 71% of his passes on the season, averaging over 385 yards per game with 8 TDs and only 2 INTs. And while Arkansas State was cruising to an easy 45-point win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, SMU was suffering the tough emotional and physical loss to TCU.

SMU’s defense ranks 117th against the pass and 104th in total yards allowed per game.  We had Arkansas State and cashed when they covered at Nebraska in their season opener.  We’ll recommend them again this week.  Arkansas State plus the points.  Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
