Fun times here at the Mob. We are back for another installment of Bench Mob Bets where I make my college football picks on Friday, and chew on a bucket of rusty nails on Saturday after seeing how it all unfolded! BOO-YAH.
Let’s take a look at last week. I will admit, on the big primetime matchups we got roasted. As much as I don’t want to admit it, Penn State is a WAGON and Michigan just blows. I always was a Michigan believer but yikes, that was bad. How about the Trojans though? Going into South Bend to give the Irish a good effo….oh my god they’re dead too.
Yes, those sucked and some others did as well… But let’s look at the overall body of work.
ACTUALLY LET’S NOT… DO NOT DO THAT.
Look, no argument from me. I sucked last week. Big steaming 1-7 over here in the Boss chair. The good thing about a bad week last week? It’s that we’re right back at it for a good week this week. HERE WE GO! I’m getting rid of quick hits because I gotta explain something behind these swings. The pick is now going to be bolded
Oklahoma State vs West Virginia +7.5
I really like WVU this weekend at home. Will (I wish you were still a Gator) Grier is leading the nation in touchdown passes with 26 to just 5 interceptions. Both these teams have atrocious defenses so it’s going to be a shootout in Morgantown. Both teams average 43 points per game. Oklahoma State’s offense looked off last week and going to WVU is a dynamite environment. Cue up the John Denver COUNTRY ROADS TAKE ME HOME.
Louisville -3 at Wake Forest
For me, this is the Lamar Jackson effect. I am a big Lamar Jackson fan and this offense is putting up 37 points per game. Wake Forest is only giving up 19.7 points per game so they know what they’re doing but Wake is coming off three straight losses where they gave up 26, 28, and 38 points in each of those games. WOOF. Give me the Cards and HAHAHAHAHAH RICK PITINO HAHAHAHAH MORON MORON MORON IDIOT (YOU ALMOST RUINED THE CELTICS FOREVER YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID WRONG) HAHAHAHAH.
Penn State +6.5 at Ohio State
I hate myself for this one if we’re being honest. This game is just punching me in the stomach saying “IT IS A TRAP YOU ASSHOLE”… Vegas may know something I don’t, but I’ve gotta ride with this. You want to know what the difference in these two teams schedules is? Penn State destroyed their ranked opponent and Ohio State crumbled against theirs. I know that Oklahoma is way better than Michigan but I think that counts for something. Penn State is giving up 9.6 points per game and that is flat out STUPID amazing. Ohio State’s offense is scoring 47 points per game and giving up 15.4 per game. When it comes to those numbers this game floats more to a toss-up if you’re betting the spread… So when that is the case I take the best player on the field and that is Saquon Barkley. This kid is unreal. I’ll take the Nittany Lions.
LIFE’S TOO SHORT TO BET THE UNDER… OVERS OF THE WEEK!
Oklahoma State vs West Virginia OVER 73
Wisconsin vs Illinois OVER 50
