Another big Saturday of college football is here, and we are ready to increase our profits. In our regular picks here on the college gridiron against the spread, we are 9-5-1 this season.

Today against the college football odds, we have three favorites of varying size that should build that bankroll. So here we go!

Florida Adds To LSU's Troubles

The LSU situation is already unraveling with Ed Orgeron as head coach, just in his first year. The Tigers have played three straight poor games, and when inspecting the numbers closer their strengths under Les Miles have all but disappeared. LSU beat opposing teams with big offensive lines and overpowered the other team's O-Line with at least NFL-sized defensive linemen under Miles. Now the Tigers do not have the drive blockers and are changing their offensive philosophy, plus they are undersized in the defensive front and are getting pushed around. Not having a dependable quarterback only exacerbates the situation. Florida is not a lot better than LSU, but what Coach Jim McElwain has done is develop players who win in the fourth quarter of close contests, and they are now down to -2.5 point favorites. Let's add in the hatred for LSU from the Florida athletic department from last season, and you have motivated Gators who win by at least 10 points.

Mississippi's Struggles in State of Alabama Continue

Last week, beleaguered Mississippi was flattened by Alabama 66-3. The Rebels return to the state of Alabama this Saturday and head to The Plains to take on Auburn -- and this could get ugly also. Ole Miss could not move the ball against the Crimson Tide's sixth-ranked defense, thus it stands to reason the Rebs will have similar problems against the Tigers, who are rated 9th in total defense. After scuffling early, the Auburn offense has found its rhythm with more than 470 yards in both SEC games, averaging 50 PPG. This is why for college football picks I have no problem handing out the 22.5 points to Mississippi.

Purdue Punishes Visiting Minnesota as Usual

Last week Minnesota came into game against Maryland at 3-0 with a stout defense and punishing ground attack, already shaped in the image of new head coach P.J. Fleck. In the first drive it was clear that the Golden Gophers did not have the foot speed to keep up with more athletic Terrapins squad, and with an injured offense line Minnesota ended up being upset 31-24 as 13-point home favorites. Now the Gophers travel to Purdue and face a different offense that spreads them out by passing, and the Boilermakers program has been energized by their first-year coach Jeff Brohm. With Minnesota 2-9 SU and 3-8 ATS in previous visits to West Lafayette, take the Boilers.
