#8 Penn State AT #2 Ohio State 12:00 PM (PICK: Penn State +19)
This should be a fun top 10 match up. This has big implications for the playoff. Ohio State is definitely the more dominant team but Penn State rarely gets blown out. Penn State will have to keep up with Ohio States high powered offense, and I believe they will. Ohio State will win this game but 19 points is a ton for a top 10 match up. Take Penn State to keep it relatively close.
#21 Oklahoma State AT West Virginia (PICK: WVU +7)
WVU finally started to pick up their offense last week. They will need that this weekend against Oklahoma State. The key to this game is WVU staying on the field and controlling possession. I will be in attendance at the game and maybe I’m dreaming but I believe WVU keeps this game very close. They may not win but WVU covering here is the play.
Tampa Bay AT Atlanta 1:00 PM (PICK: Bucs +4)
The Falcons are riding their first winning streak of the year. Atlanta has a record of 3-7 but has been playing much better. The defense has looked much improved. The same cannot be said for the Bucs. Their secondary continues to get torched. Also, Jameis continues to turn the ball over and isn't getting much help from the guys around him. With that being said I have a feeling the Bucs put it together this weekend. They can definitely score but can their D hold Atlanta. I think it comes together and the Bucs win, take the points to be safe!
Carolina AT New Orleans 1:00 PM (PICK: Saints -9.5)
The Saints have won five of the last seven meetings against Carolina. Brees has their number. Carolina ranks 10th in the NFL with 126 rushing yards per game, Christian McCaffrey is a beast. New Orleans' defense is one of the best in the NFL and I think they got a kick start against the Bucs last week. They stop the run and Drew Brees will be Drew Brees. Saints win by double digits.
