Time to close out college football with a collection of winners and I have pointed to three games that at least to this handicappers eye look rather tasty, to say nothing of being profitable.

For the first week weeks of writing this article and going up against the college football odds, I am 4-2 ATS. As has been the custom, comrade Willie Bee handles the Saturday morning or early afternoon shift depending on where you live and he is 2-0 and might be 3-0 if Louisiana hangs on at +24 against Texas A&M.

You can look over what I have for college football picks and see if you agree or disagree.


Add Up The Points in Laramie

Oregon has scored 119 points in two games and their offense looks as lethal as ever. Wyoming has not scored as much as presumed as 15 points a contest, but that figures to change at home with quarterback Josh Allen and nine other offensive starters. The Cowboys have been solid on defense to this point but have not faced speed like the Ducks. Oregon's defense showed against Nebraska they have put away last year's failures yet and will give up points. With the total at 60, I cannot see less than 65 point being rung up and have system that supports the OVER and it has a 28-4 record!

Kansas State Has a Little Too Much for Vandy

Kansas State is facing its toughest task so far on both sides of the ball in Vanderbilt. An improved Kyle Shurmur gives Vanderbilt a new element at quarterback, though he hasn’t faced a defense like Kansas State. Watch for the Wildcats to sell out to stop RB Ralph Webb and make Shurmur beat him. While Vanderbilt has been impressive early, can they hang with an opponent of this caliber? Look for the Commodores to keep it close for a half, but I like K-State to pull away in the second half. Vanderbilt hasn’t beaten an AP ranked non-conference opponent since 1946 (0-18 SU). With K-State 11-3 ATS after allowing nine points or less and 12-2 ATS away after scoring 31 points or more in two straight games, it will be Kansas State by more than a touchdown.

South Carolina Exposes Kentucky Pass Defense at Home

Let's be honest, nobody expected to see pair of 2-0 teams with Kentucky traveling to South Carolina. The Gamecocks were underdogs in both opening games and thanks to QB Jake Bentley and opportunistic defense, the Gamecocks are 2-0 ATS and will play first home game. Coming off a winning season, Kentucky has been less impressive in not covering either victory and they will require more offense to engineer upset. The Wildcats run defense has been terrific in only permitting 58 YPG, but that was against lesser competition, with the pass defense more vulnerable in ranking 98th. I have a system that has the Gamecocks winning by 12 and will ride it.
