PENN STATE AT MINNESOTA

NOON-Saturday

LINE: PENN STATE -7

DTM PICK: MINNESOTA +7

 

This might be the biggest home game for the Gophers in the last 50 years, maybe ever!

Both teams come in 8-0 and both teams have a path to the Playoff. As it stands right now the Nittany Lions are in with the first CFP rankings that came out this week. If Minny runs the table and goes 13-0, they would be in the Playoff as well.

This is going to be a hell of a game and I think both teams will come out fired up and ready to go. While PJ Fleck's Golden Gophers might not win this one outright, they will be in it until the end.

Need last week’s closing betting lines? We have them all in our NCAAF game recaps

The Gophers solid D will come up with a big turnover that will either give them an outright win or keep them in it until the bitter end. Gobble up the TD at home and start off your football Saturday in high fashion.

 



 

LSU AT ALABAMA

3:30 PM-Saturday

LINE: ALABAMA -6.5

DTM PICK: LSU +6.5

 

It doesn't get much bigger than this. While it might not be the literal #1 vs. #2, it sure feels like it. This game will go a long way in deciding the College Football Playoff landscape.

The Crimson Tide, who for years under Nick Saban have been in the mix to win it all, face a Tigers team that has what I feel is the best QB in the country right now. Heisman Fave Joe Burrow has simply been magical this season.

Bama QB Tua Tagovailoa is also banged up with an ankle injury, so monitor his status, but even if he plays I still love LSU getting almost a TD. I think The Tigers actually win this one outright and firmly take a grasp as the best team in the SEC in 2019.

This is going to be a ton of fun and could end up being one of the more epic games between SEC teams in a long time.

IOWA STATE AT OKLAHOMA

8 PM-Saturday

LINE: OKLAHOMA -14.5

DTM PICK: IOWA STATE +14.5

 

I've given you this Iowa State team, expertly coached by one of the next names to get a big, big time job in Matt Campbell, several times this year on the right side of the ledger.

This is another one of those spots as they are getting an absurd 2 TDs-plus against a team that lost to Kansas State a couple weeks ago as a 23.5 road fave.

The Sooners are still a super dangerous team, but Iowa State plays solid D and that is where they will be able to hang in this game against Jalen Hurts and the high flying Sooner offense.

Load up on the Cyclones and you will thank me Sunday morning. Find a sportsbook and bet these picks before the lines move out of our favor.
