Hold All Tickets: Week 4 Leaving the Door Open

free moneyGood reads on the Hogs and Oklahoma last week, but it wasn’t enough to pull us out of this skid. Pitt fumbled twice inside the 7-yard line and missed a certain cover over FIU.  A&M was indifferent in a 38-10 near cover vs. Rice.

In our friendly competition with Arkansas Fight, Graham is sputtering out of the gate as well, leaving the door open for us. The comeback begins this week with a heavy dose of SEC games.  You can see Graham’s Week 4 picks here on Friday.

Here we go.

Auburn at Kansas State – The whole world seems to be on the Thursday night home dogs and this week is no different. Normally we’d be right there with them, but not this week…not with Gus Malzahn on the other side.  Both these teams had a week off to prepare.  Auburn is a step faster at every position and has been a machine so far in 2014.  Have run game…will travel.  Auburn -8.5.

Indiana at Missouri – It pains us to say this, but we’ve been impressed with Missouri so far this year. After a nice road win at Toledo, the Tigers came home last week and destroyed a solid UCF team by 4TDs.  QB Maty Mauk has been near flawless (12TDs in 2014) and should shred a very bad Indiana defensive unit.  High scoring affair, with the Tigers getting a few more stops.  Missouri -13.

South Carolina at Vanderbilt – Very much a sandwich game for the Gamecocks with Missouri on deck, but Vandy has been so bad, we just can’t help ourselves. Carolina’s win at home last week vs. Georgia signaled that their defense is improving and has a chance to shutout the Commodores.  This feels like a 38-7 type of game.  South Carolina -21.5.

Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech – After putting it on Ohio State two weeks ago, the Hokies had a let down last week in their 28-21 loss to East Carolina. Despite the slip up, we still like what we have seen out of Tech and QB Michael Brewer, and feel like we are getting tremendous value here with VT coming off last week’s loss.  Georgia Tech defense is not up to par.  Virginia Tech -8.

Texas A&M at SMU – What a way to start the season. SMU scored only one touchdown in their first two games – both lopsided losses to Baylor and North Texas.  HC June Jones said ‘see you later’, and after a week off, the Mustangs host the the high-flying Aggie offensive attack.  A&M was listless last week against Rice, and you could tell Coach Kevin Sumlin was seething on the sidelines watching the display.  Look for SMU to come out fired up for their new coach for a few minutes, but that lasts until aTm puts a few scores on the board.  Texas A&M -32.5

Who you got this week?

    Do you have a link or anything that can explain the +/- margins that are listed ? I get the over/under, but Texas A & M -32.5 means? If that means they’ll win by 32.5, what does the “-” mean?
