Kansas vs. Texas Football Betting Over-Under Pick from Stephen Nover: November 7th 2015

Stephen Nover - College Football PickKansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Longhorns
Football Betting Pick: Under 53 points (November 7th 2015)

It takes a lot of offensive ineptness to get shut out by Iowa State. But Charlie Strong’s Texas squad managed to pull off the feat last week losing, 24-0. The Cyclones had allowed an average of 52 points per game during their last three games. Now the Longhorns host Kansas. The mighty Jayhawks offense scored seven points last week against Oklahoma. These are two really bad offenses. Yet the total is in the 50’s because the defenses aren’t good either, especially the Jayhawks. The defensive numbers, though, are skewed by constantly playing against high-scoring fellow Big 12 Conference foes.

There is no excuse for the offenses. Kansas is 122nd in scoring averaging a puny 16.5 points a game. The Jayhawks rank 115th in total yards. Texas rates even worse – 118th in total yards, averaging less than 135 yards passing. Neither team can throw so there’s going to be a lot of running, which eats clock. Texas quarterback Jerrod Heard has gone four straight games without breaking the 100-yard passing barrier. Kansas, which starts six freshmen on offense, starts a backup quarterback (Ryan Willis) who has one more touchdown throw than interception on the season. On the year, Kansas quarterbacks have combined for seven touchdown passes and six interceptions.

The Longhorns have picked up their pass rush piling up 17 sacks in their last three games. The Jayhawks have not been able to go above 300 yards total offense in four of their last five games. So it’s no wonder there are heavy trends pointing to another under such as Kansas falling below the total in 12 of its last 15 road contests and the under cashing in 22 of Texas’ past 29 overall games.

Missouri Tigers vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs Betting Pick from Scott Spreitzer: November 5th 2015

Spreitzer - College Football PickMissouri Tigers vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs
Betting Pick: Missouri +8 (November 5th 2015)

I’m recommending a play on Missouri plus the points on Thursday. Missouri has had a few extra days to prepare for the Bulldogs and I expect the Tiger defense to be ready to slam the door on yet another offense. Mizzou ranks 6th against the pass, 24th against the run, and 6th in total yards allowed per game. They’re hosting a Mississippi State squad that has not fared well on offense in their two SEC road games thus far. The Bulldogs scored 17 points each at Auburn and Texas A&M, and averaged just 366 yards per game and 126 yards rushing per game. The Tigers have held South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Vandebilt to a grand total of 50 points, for an average of just 12.5 ppg. And with extra time to prepare, I expect a smoother night for the offense, led by Drew Lock, who will be making his 5th straight start. But this one is about Mizzou’s defense and adding to the numbers mentioned above is one of the SEC’s best in TFL’s and sacks. Missouri is 58-28-1 ATS off a SU loss and they have played their best football of late in the month of November, where they have kicked it into gear with an 8-0 ATS run. It’s Mizzou’s time of season and I’m recommending a play on the Tigers plus the points. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

Arizona State vs. Washington State Football Pick from Doc’s Sports: November 7th 2015

Doc's Sports - College Football PickArizona State vs. Washington State
College Football Pick: Washington State -2.5 (November 7th 2015)

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #416 Take Washington State Cougars over Arizona State Sun Devils (Saturday 3:30 pm Fox Sports 1) The Cougars have been a great play with regards to against the spread this season. Expect that trend to continue on Saturday in Pullman WA when they take on the Sun Devils. Both teams are coming off heartbreaking losses but I just believe Washington State is a better team that Arizona State this year. Despite the loss to Stanford, Wazzou has won three of their last four games and Arizona State has given up a ton of points this season. This is only the third true road game of the season for Arizona State and expect them to suffer a similar setback like when they faced Utah. Arizona State is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Washington State has covered the spread in five straight games. Do not miss out on the opening of college basketball for Doc’s Sports next Friday, November 13th, 2015.
