Week 7 was a notable one for the FootballScoop staff’s Best Bet. Doug and Zach split their picks, with Zach hitting Louisville +9.5 over Clemson and Doug missing on Alabama -9 at Arkansas, but Scott put it all on Buffalo -14 vs. Eastern Michigan. Literally. “Put it all on Buffalo laying the 14. All of it,” he wrote last week. You know what happened next.
Tommy Tuberville wants this game more than most people understand. I think Cincinnati gets the lead and stays after it. I can see them putting up 50-plus, and I don’t see SMU scoring 28 points in eight quarters. I’ll take the Bearcats -13.
Michigan State’s defense isn’t the same intimidating, “No Fly Zone” type of unit they had last year, but Indiana is down to their third-string quarterback…who also happens to be a freshman. Plus Michigan State’s offense can put up some serious points (see their 73 point explosion against Eastern Michigan), so I feel comfortable with the -15 point spread on this one.
This is more of a vote of no confidence against Kansas. I don’t see the Jayhawks going on the road and covering the 13 points.
This season: Scott (2-5), Doug (2-5), Zach (4-3)
