Beating Down the Books-October 23rd
-UConn +7.5 @ WVU
UConn has three key reasons on their side as to why I like this game for them. They have a dominating running game with Andre Dixon and Jordan Todman. #2, they always play close games because of their ball control nature and solid defensive abilities. #3, WVU QB Brown is questionable with a concussion. All 3 signs point to the Huskies, especially getting a touchdown.
-Duke -4 vs. Maryland
Nope, this is not Carlos Boozer giving four to Juan Dixon. The Blue Devils have shown the ability to score in 2009 while the Terps simply cannot stop anyone. Given the home field advantage, Thaddeus Lewis throws for 300 yards and at least 3 scores.
-Miami -4 vs. Clemson
This line is low after Miami struggled at UCF last weekend. Jacory Harris is the real deal and after two weeks of playing mediocre teams, Harris is going to show off in a huge contest for the Canes.
-Cal -35 vs. Washington State
I never like taking games with the spread this high. This week however I believe the Bears will score 60. Both Best and Vereen will rush for over 100 yards, while Riley will throw 3 scores. Blowout for the Bears.
USC -20.5 vs Oregon State
TCU -2.5 @ BYU
Texas -13 @ Mizzou
Houston -16.5 vs. SMU
