East Carolina vs. Houston Prediction: College Football Picks for October 8th 2011

East Carolina vs. Houston
Prediction: Over 73 (October 8th 2011)

Houston is one of the highest-scoring teams in the country. We look for the Cougars to put up more big offensive numbers Saturday against East Carolina’s soft defense, while the Pirates hang right with them score for score. Houston is scoring 45.2 points/game behind 610 total yards/game, including 451 passing. Case Keenum is one of the best quarterbacks in the country that nobody knows about, and by the time he’s done at Houston, he will hold almost every important all-time NCAA QB record. The Houston defense is very soft, giving up 26.6 points/game and 413 total yards/game. ECU’s defense hasn’t been any better, allowing 32.7 points/game and 385 total yards/game. This is an ECU team that has been dealt a very tough schedule having to play South Carolina, Virginia Tech and North Carolina in three of their first four games. They haven’t quite shown what they are capable of offensively because of it. Remember, ECU has six offensive starters back from a unit that put up 36.8 points and 438 total yards/game last season. They also have six starters back from a defense that allowed 44.0 points and 479 total yards/game in 2010. Keenum is completing 69.7 percent of his passes for 2,005 yards and 14 touchdowns with two interceptions, while Dominique Davis is completing 68.6 percent of his passes for 1,165 yards and nine touchdowns to seven picks. These are two little-known quarterbacks who know how to move their team down the field in a hurry. The OVER is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in this head-to-head series. As you can see, when these teams get together, offensive fireworks usually ensue. The OVER is 6-0 in Pirates last 6 road games, and 12-3 in Pirates last 15 conference games. The OVER is 8-2 in Cougars last 10 home games, and 16-5 in Cougars last 21 conference games. The OVER is 18-6 in Houston’s last 24 games overall, and 7-1 in their last 8 games as a favorite of 10.5 or more. Take the OVER 73 points here. Get more college football picks from Black Widow at

UConn vs. West Virginia Prediction: College Football Picks for October 8th 2011

Uconn vs. West Virginia
Prediction: West Virginia -19 -110 odds (October 8th 2011)

Woweee! This game is going to get ugly. West Virginia can’t wait to avenge LYs 16-13 OT loss in which kept the Mountaineers from a BCS Bowl. UWV head coach, Dana Holgorsen stated “Our guys are going to be motivated due to the fact that they lost to UConn last year and didn’t go to a BCS Bowl because of it.” Talk is that West Virginia began preparing for this game Sunday night by rewatching last seasons game film. Savvy QB, Geno Smith has 1709 YP, a 65% completion rate, and a 121/3 TD/INT ratio. Now with a true ground game behind RB Dustin Harrison (365 YR and 4 TDs) the West Virginia offense is a true dual-threat. Harrison will run amok, allowing Smith to open up the passing attack against the depleted UConn secondary that got lit up 2 weeks ago by WMU QB, Alex Carder for 479 YP. The problem for the Huskies is that they have no talent at the QB position and there is no way the 90th ranked offense can compete with the #14 offense that passed all over a great LSU defense. On “D”, Connecticut ranks 83rd vs. the pass. UWV has 3 receivers in Austin, Bailey, and McCartney have combined for 1240 YR and 7 TDs. On their “D”, West Virginia’s speed will bewilder QB McEntree, who threw 3 INTs in his only other road game vs. Vanderbilt. The Mountaineers heavy-blitzing 3-3-5 attack will completely shut down the untalented “O” of the Huskies. Their defense is way ahead of teams like Buffalo and WMU. The Huskies are 2-5 ATS their L7 vs. the Mountaineers and 1-5 ATS their L6 overall. The Mountaineers are 3-0-1 ATS their L4 Conference games and 3-0-1 ATS their L4 home games vs. teams with a losing road record. Take West Virginia. Thank you. -Joseph D’Amico (
