It is Championship Week in college football and we will crown 10 conference champs this week. Nine will come from title games at various locations and the Sun Belt has two deciding contests.

After a couple of middling weeks, we bounced back to winning Saturday for our college football picks, lifting us to a 20-16-1 ATS record for the season for this specific article.

In looking at the college football odds for Saturday, I will be shocked if I don't sweep the board.

Conference USA Title Tilt - Owls Soar to Victory

In many cases, a large favorite like Florida Atlantic at home in a conference championship, in which they won previous contest by 38 points, would lead to football bettor preferring the underdog. Complacency would seep in being at home and though they might win, they would fail to cover. I do not see that happening with Lane Kiffin, because he wants all the credit he can garner and going to a school like Florida Atlantic that was picked to finish 3rd to 5th in their division in Conference USA, only boosts Kiffin's stock. That is not the only rationale, as the Owls have the nation's No.6 rushing offense and averages 6.0 yards a carry, while the North Texas defense permits over 200 yards a game rushing and 4.8 YPC. FAU wins the C-USA title by 14 or more points.

AAC Title Tilt - Memphis Almost Derails Central Florida's Perfect Season

If you plan on watching the AAC championship, you better set aside most of the afternoon. Central Florida and Memphis have tremendous offenses and are the Top 2 scoring teams in the country. UCF has never lost to Memphis, with a perfect 10-0 record (6-4 ATS), which includes a 40-13 stomping back in September in Orlando. In that contest, the Tigers lost the turnover battle 3-1 and to win this championship they will have to flip that number in their favor. All the pressure is on UCF at home and they have only covered one of their last four contests, while Memphis is rolling since losing to the Knights with a 7-0 and 6-1 ATS (spread loss was by half point) record and road underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points, in a game involving two teams averaging 440 or more YPG, after gaining 525 or more YPG over their last three outings, are 33-9 ATS.

SEC Title Tilt - Georgia Extracts Revenge

An Auburn sweep of Georgia all but assures they will be the first team with two losses in the College Football Playoffs, yet considering who they would have beaten, not many will complain. One major difference, no home cooking for the Tigers, as the crowd will be pro-Georgia in Atlanta. Auburn is the hottest team in the country and has shown they can win the line of scrimmage against the Bulldogs and they have a hot QB in Jarrett Stidham. If Georgia has anywhere close the same problems in the trenches, they will be beat again. But I do not think they will and with coach Kirby Smart off the Saban coaching tree, you know this week has been intense for the linemen. Look for the Dawgs to create third and short on offense and third and long on defense to win and my guess is Auburn's Kerryon Johnson's shoulder injury is a real deal. After thinking they blew chance to reach CFP, Georgia advances with victory.
