College football betting evening picks October 19:

Kansas at (15)Texas(-21.5)(2):

This is a dangerous line since the Texas defense still isn’t at full strength. Texas is more than capable of covering this, but with Les Miles Kansas always has a chance. Yeah, Texas isn’t Boston College. Longhorns roll!

East Carolina at Central Florida(-32.5)(2):

Wow, that’s a lot of points. UCF has looked the part at home, but East Carolina isn’t quite this bad, are they? Maybe. Give me UCF.

San Diego State(-8.5) at San Jose State(2):

This is a rivalry game, and a road game for the Aztecs. Considering Wyoming stayed a one score game last week, I’ll say this one does as well. Give me the Spartans.

Tulane at Memphis(-3.5)(3):

This line is dropping fast, as it should. I would bet that by kickoff it’s at -3 or under. That doesn’t mean much to me. I’ve been on Tulane straight up all week. That’s not changing now.

Western Michigan(-9.5) at Eastern Michigan(3):

The Eagles lost outright to NIU. Were they looking ahead to this rivalry, or are they just not very good. I’m thinking the latter. Give me the Broncos.

Colorado at Washington State(-12.5)(3):

What did I miss? Neither defense is good, so I  highly doubt either team pulls away here. A 13 point win feels like pulling away. I’d also bet the over on 71.

Army(-5.5) at Georgia State(4):

Army isn’t this far down. Find this one on your cable box for a piece of 70’s and 80’s nostalgia. There may be ten combined passes in this one. Army still wins by double digits.

UTEP at Florida International(-23.5)(1):

UTEP is horrible, but it’s not like FIU is a really good team. Only Texas Tech has beaten the Miners by more than 17 points. I’ll go UTEP.

(16)Michigan at (7)Penn State(-8.5)(4):

When was the last time Michigan showed up for a big game, favored or otherwise? Penn State last year, right? A lot has happened since then. The blowout loss to Ohio State. Getting run off the field in Atlanta by Florida. Wisconsin trampling them. This feels like a time Michigan might show up, but I’ll tell you Penn State is better than last year. This line may be a little high, but there’s no way I would bet Michigan. Give me Penn State.

Texas A&M(-6.5) at Mississippi(4):

This looks awfully low. I tend to think A&M is better than Missouri, especially on defense. A&M may have trouble running the ball, but not that much. I’ll take the Aggies.

Florida State at Wake Forest(-1.5)(3):

This line is going to jump if Jamie Newman is ruled in. It shouldn’t. Even if he plays, I’m not sure about this. The only reason I’m really on Wake is because Florida State’s secondary is still weak. The rest of the team is more up to par, but I just don’t see FSU winning this one. I’ll take Wake at home.

Tennessee at (1)Alabama(-34.5)(2):

Alabama is going for a SEC record sixth straight game of more than 45 points. The thing is that the Tennessee defense isn’t bad. So this is saying that Alabama wins 45-10, right? Alabama has covered this line in each of the last three years, but only four times in the current 12 game win streak by the Tide. Are you going history or very recent dominance? For me, it’s the recent dominance. Roll Tide!

Arizona at USC(-9.5)(3):

We just saw Arizona get embarrassed by a Washington team that mostly stumbled into Tucson last week. This wont end well for the Mildcats either. Give me USC.

(14)Boise State(-6.5) at BYU(5):

I don’t care if Hank Bachmeier plays or not. Chase Cord was plenty good enough in finishing off Hawaii last week. BYU lost to South Florida last week, who is really not a good team. Oh, by the way, they were missing starting QB Blake Barnett and they still beat BYU. Zack Wilson being hurt is not why BYU is losing. It doesn’t help, but the problems are deeper than that. Boise wins BIG!

Nevada at Utah State(-20.5)(2):

Nevada is going to try to play keep away from Utah State because, frankly, that’s their only chance. They fail. Aggies cover.

Air Force(-2.5) at Hawaii(2):

Air Force is a good team, but I’m not picking against the Warriors on the islands. Give me Hawaii.

Next. ESPN College Pick Em picks week 8. dark

There are 61 total FBS vs. FBS games this weekend, making this the largest college football betting week of the year by far. I went a little lighter at the top, but higher in the middle again. I’m still trying to make up for a disastrous week 5.

I ended up with only five one pointers, 23 two pointers, 22 three pointers, and eight four pointers to go with my three five point picks.

Stay tuned throughout the season for every college football game picked against the spread! I usually have my picks up about 24 hours before kickoff in order to get the most accurate spread possible. If I change one, I will post it on Twitter.
