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%
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
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
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
State -8.5, Oklahoma State -330, Over 73
TCU Horned Frogs @
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

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
Home field advantage will keep LSU close for a half but
-6.5, Alabama -245, Under 44

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.
Carolina -4.5, South Carolina -200, Under 59.5

Arizona Wildcats @
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
