Tulane vs. Georgia Tech 3:30 ET
Each week in this space, I will isolate the CFB crusher of the week. It will be a blend of statistical, situational and technical analysis that will result in an outstanding opportunity for you to cash a winning ticket. Look for this dominating favorite to either double rush their opponent (a 75% chance of pointspread success) or run and pass for 200+ yards (200 CLUB, A 74% pointspread winner).  

 

This Week’s Winner
The Tulane Green Wave travels to Georgia Tech for a game 2 for each team. These teams posted divergent results in the first week of play. Before this line slips away from us (it has already been moved a TD from last week), we must lay the lumber in what is most assuredly the crusher of the week.  

With 9 starters returning to the offensive side of the ball (16 RS in all), a rebound season was expected from a Tulane team that dropped from 7-6 SU, 8-4 ATS in 2013 to 3-9 SU, 3-8 ATS last year.  In opening week, they hosted Duke, a team who had smacked them (47-13) last season.  But, revenge was never in the offing!  The Blue Devils recorded a 200 Club night and double rushed the Greenies 206-25 in rolling up a 530-271 yardage advantage in a 37-7 victory. Now, this Tulane team, who averaged just 16 PPG last year must travel east.   

Last year, Georgia Tech won this matchup (38-21), covering the 9 point road impost at Tulane.  In so doing, they outrushed the Green Wave 344-81, easily doublerushing them for the cover. Expect more of the same today, despite the fact that Tech may not show their entire hand with a game vs. Notre Dame next week. Nonetheless, a veteran Tech offense steamrolled to a 69-6 cover as (-41) in their opening week win vs. Alcorn. In so doing, they doublerushed Alcorn 476-166. The game was over early, when the Jackets put up 34 points in the 1st quarter. QB Thomas and the rest of the offense, including RB Marshall, took off the last half of the afternoon. There is precedence for our selection, noting that Tech HC Johnson is on a bit of a pointspread roll. The Jackets have covered 11 of 15 most recently and are an identical 11-4 ATS laying double digits of late. 

You have got a scoop for this college football picks, if Tech does not doublerush this opponent and easily cover the 4TD impost!
