Dirty Wudders Degenerate Wagering - CFB Wk.2

Week 2 of the College Football season offers up some pretty sweet matchups, USC-OSU, Michigan-ND, PSU-Syracuse…well, maybe not so much the last one, but you get the idea. I’m pumped for these games. My only fear is blacking out during the PSU game and not remembering Ohio State getting F’d in the A by USC on Saturday night. Anyway, without further ado, here are Dirty Wudders Degenerate Wagering picks for Week 2, feel free to mock us in the comments:

Namesake’s Picks:

Game 1: Syracuse @ Penn State Line: PSU -28.5 O/U: 53.5

Last season PSU dominated Syracuse 55-13, and with Greg Paulus running the point for the Orange this season I wouldn’t expect anything less. One trend going against the Lions is that they are 1-7 ATS vs. Big East opponents in their last eight games, but come on, it’s Syracuse. I anticipate PSU rolling by at least 35 at Beaver Stadium - the point guard won’t know what hit him.

Pick: PSU to cover

Game 2: USC @ Ohio St. Line: USC -6.5 O/U: 46.5

When the two teams met least season USC embarrassed OSU in Pasadena 35-3, covering the 10.5 point line. This year USC rolls into Columbus with a true freshman starting at QB, about as intimidating a venue as you could find for a guy who was in high school six months ago. Some trends to think about: USC is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 vs Big Ten teams. Ohio St. is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games. The under is 11-5 in Ohio State’s last 16 games in September. The under is 17-7-1 in USC’s last 25 games overall. The last two trends are telling, and I would expect USC’s QB to struggle a bit during his first big game, leading to fewer points put on the board.

Pick: Under 46.5

Doc’s Picks:

Game 1: Louisiana Tech @ Navy Line: Navy -7.5 O/U 50

Navy ran wild against Ohio State last week and look for Ricky Dobbs to do the same this week. Louisiana Tech’s offense, anemic against Auburn, will rebound but will not be able to keep up with Navy. Navy wins 34-24

Pick: Over 50

Pick: Navy to cover -7.5

Sec202’s Picks:

Game 1: Notre Dame @ Michigan Line: ND -3

Pick: Michigan getting the points

Game 2: Houston @ OK State Line: OKST -14.4

Pick: OK State to cover
