The pressure continues to build for all teams trying to reach the Final Four, win their respective conference division race or become bowl eligible. It is also nerve-racking for sports bettors!

If you are in the midst of a good season, you do not want to blow it late in the year. And if you are around .500 and having been doing better of late, you want to close out the regular season with college football picks with a flourish and make a profit.

One week after a winless Saturday, I bounced back with 3-0 mark and raised record for this segment to 16-11-3 and after closely surveying the college football odds, I have a trio of underdogs that should have some real bite.

 Spartans Cover Against Unreliable Ohio State

After a month of barely completing 50 percent of pass attempts and having 611 passing yards, Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke has gotten so hot he could light a charcoal grill with throwing hand with 845 passing yards the last two weeks. With only Maryland and Rutgers ahead, a Spartans victory at Columbus sets them up to play for Big Ten title. As far as Ohio State, they have surrendered 93 points in last two outings and posted a -6 turnover ratio and even if you include Penn State miracle comeback (which they could have easily lost), the Buckeyes are only 7-3 SU in last 10 contests. With Sparty catching +17.5 point, really like the fact Michigan State is 12-3 ATS after gaining 450+ yards in consecutive games and makes this a touchdown game.

Saddle Up With Wyoming Cowboys in Upset

Wyoming still has chance to win division and is on 5-1 (6-0 ATS) roll, despite how the season started. If you subtract the 49 points Oregon scored on the Cowboys, Wyoming has given up only 14.7 PPG against everyone else. For QB Josh Allen personally, it has not been the season he expected, however, pass protection and the lack of difference-makers at receiver have made matters worse, yet his team has been winning. The Falcons are off humbling 21-0 shutdown to Army, with only 95 rushing yards and the Black Knights never needed to pass once. Because these team meet annually, Wyoming knows how to defense Air Force option and has held them 83 yards a game below their season average the last three games. With the Cowboys 9-3 ATS at Air Force in previous visits, it's Wyoming outright!

TCU and Oklahoma in Real Big 12 Battle

The Big 12 has been a rugged all season for the top tier teams. Based on remaining schedule, this is the last monster matchup with winner having clear advantage to win conference and the loser hoping for rematch. At quarterback, Baker Mayfield has decisive edge over Kenny Hill in a big game, as time and again he has not let Oklahoma falter when they could have. In terms of who has better team, TCU gets the edge dramatically on defense, ranked 6th nationally and the Sooners at 86th. In breaking this conflict down, if game turns into about the stars, Oklahoma wins, but if it turns into a team game, the Horned Frogs will prevail. I will back TCU who is 14-5-1 ATS as road underdogs and make sure to find a +7 like I did.

Free Football Pick: TCU (+7)Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes
