Watch SBR TV NCAAF Experts Roundtable Picks and Leans
First up we have John Ryan and his impressive NCAAF locks. The last four weeks, and the ONLY four weeks he has released his College Football 5-pack of 5* Locks, he has produced a 16-9 ATS record for 60% winners.
These are plays John strongly believes will win ATS based on extensive research and 17-years of experience. He releases plays ranging from 3* Free Picks to Top Rated 25* Games of the Year. Between these extremes are 5* Monster plays, 7* Titans, 10* Titans, and 15* Games of the Week.
These are 5* Locks plays and may include optional money line plays too. Here’s to another winning set of five 5* Lock plays.
Temple at Kent State
I’ve successfully been riding Temple, but now it is time to play against them in this difficult matchup and situation against Kent State. Supporting this graded is a system that has produced a 129-73 ATS since 1992. Play on a home team off a win by 10 points or more over a conference rival facing an opponent off three straight wins against conference rivals. Take Kent State
Boston College at Wake Forest
Wake Forest offense is geared toward the run, ranking 33rd nationally gaining 180.4 yards per game. Wake has the favorable matchups to establish their pounding running game and to also contain one of the weakest offenses in the country. BC ranks 85th in passing yards per game at 184.9 yards per game and 100th in rushing yards at 110.5 yards per game. BC has struggled against offenses designed around the run noting they are 4-16 ATS facing passing teams averaging 5.75 or less passing yards per attempt since 1992. Teams that average this small an amount per attempt are only using the pass to keep a defense honest and from completely loading the box to stop their running game. Take Wake Forest.
Oregon State at UCLA
UCLA has had a largely up and down season with their best victory on the road at Texas where they covered by 37 1/2 points and was my ABC TV top rated 25* Game of the Year winning play. This UCLA play is supported by a proven system sporting a 50-18 ATS record for 74% winners since 1992. Play against any average team posting a +/- 0.6 yards per play differential and after allowing 225 or less total yards in their previous game and now facing a poor team being outgained by 0.6 to 1.2 yards per play. I don’t see Oregon State gaining more than 4.0 yards per carry against the UCLA defensive front. UCLA is a perfect 10-0 ATS in home games when they allow 3.5 to 4 rushing yards per attempt since 1992. Take the Bruins.
Maryland at Miami (Fla)
Maryland has had a surprising season and stands at 3-1 in the ACC Atlantic division just 1/2 game behind leader Florida State, who is 4-1 in ACC action. Miami (Fla) has had a solid year as well, but are two games behind 5-0 Virginia Tech in the Coastal division. Miami defense has done a great job forcing turnovers. Maryland is just 5-18 ATS in road games against teams who force 2.5 or more turnovers per game on the season since 1992. Take Miami (Fla).
Troy at North Texas
Just too many points and my neural network based simulator shows a high probability that North Texas will lose this game by fewer than 11 points and has an outside shot at attaining a major upset. Consider adding a 2* amount to the bet using the money line. The North Texas play is further strengthened by a system hitting 68% ATS winners for a 71-33 record since 2000. Play on home dogs of 10.5 to 21 points after one or more consecutive straight up wins after the first month of the season has been completed. 48% of these games played have covered the spread by seven or more points. Take North Texas.
**So that was John Ryan and his 5 pack of 5 stars for the weekend. Next up we have Dave Lawrence who has made his play of NCAA Football Picks**
Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Baylor Bears are no longer the Big 12 whipping boys as they have seven wins already but this week’s task is a tall order for them. After a big win in Texas last week, they could be suffering a bit of a hangover.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys have the better of the two offenses, they have home field advantage and they have a defense that’s forced 22 turnovers this season. That will be good enough for a 10-point home win over the Bears.
Pick: Oklahoma State -8.5, Oklahoma State -330, Over 73
TCU Horned Frogs @ Utah Utes
The TCU Horned Frogs and Utah Utes have been on a collision course all season long and finally, we’ll see one of these teams fall by the BCS waste side and one of these teams vault even higher.
When you boil it down, the Utes have the better offensive line and home field advantage, but TCU has the better quarterback, running game, defense and they are more experienced. That will be the difference.
Pick: TCU -5, TCU -200, Under 51

Alabama Crimson Tide @ LSU Tigers
Each team has one loss coming into this matchup but there is a big discrepancy between the talents on either side. The LSU Tigers have skated by this year with a number of close wins that probably should have been losses. They have a quarterback conundrum with both Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson struggling. On the other side, Alabama has an excellent offense with Greg McElroy, Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and Julio Jones all serving as premier weapons.
Home field advantage will keep LSU close for a half but that’s all.
Pick: Alabama -6.5, Alabama -245, Under 44
Watch Alabama vs LSU
Arkansas Razorbacks @ South Carolina Gamecocks
The Arkansas Razorbacks have one of the best passing offenses in the country and they are going up against one of the weakest pass defenses. But South Carolina is second in the nation in sacks per game and they won’t have to face the Razorbacks best receiving weapon, Greg Childs, who is out for the year.
The Gamecocks offense is also rolling, though, and they’ll be able to do much more than just keep up at home. Expect them to run the ball with Marcus Lattimore, play a balanced game and keep it away from Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett. And when he does get the ball, they’ll pressure him into a turnover or two, which will be the deciding factor.
Pick: South Carolina -4.5, South Carolina -200, Under 59.5

Arizona Wildcats @ Stanford Cardinal
Revenge is a dish best served cold and it’s also going to be a dish that Stanford serves to Arizona off of Saturday’s menu. Last year, in Tucson, he Wildcats upended Stanford’s hopes of a Rose Bowl with a big win thanks to the hot hand of quarterback Nick Foles. This time around, the game is in Stanford and Foles’ hand is not so hot; he’s been out for the last two games with a knee injury, but should return.
The Cardinal offense is very balanced and they are more than capable of winning a shootout, but they’ll get a number of key defensive stops to make this a comfortable win.
Pick: Stanford -9.5, Stanford -340, Over 56
