Well I was gonna have all plays in week 1 in that other thread, but it was just gonna get way to complicated for me, so I decided to have a Saturday thread instead. I did move my Ohio State play to this thread from the other thread.
3 UNIT PLAYS
(Risking $30.00 To Win $27.27) Ohio State -14 Over Navy: Preparing for the Navy Option attack is never easy, but the Buckeyes do get a break here as they have had all summer to prepare for this offense. Yes the Buckeyes will be without Braxton Miller, but the more digging I do the better I feel that they will be Ok with JT Barrett behind center. JT has been working with the first team offense are through the offseason and has also had a few weeks knowing that he will be the starting QB. Navy comes back with a very experienced roster, but they really are outclassed here, especially on the defensive side of the ball and just won't score enough points to keep this one close. You also have to believe that JT and the rest of the Buckeye roster wants to prove that they will be fine without Miller. This is a statement game for them. Buckeyes by 21+ here.
(Risking $30.00 To Win $27.27) LSU/ Wisconsin Under 49: This is my kind of game as it shapes up as a real defensive battle. The Badgers do have some solid returning starters on offense, but still this is a power running team and that type of team will take time off the clock. Their top RB returns from last year, but they also lost a 1400 yard back and their top 4 WR's from last year. The Badgers have also switched QB's, going with Tanner McEvoy, who was a DB last year for the team, over Joel Stave. The weakness for the Badgers will be on their defense, but still they have recruited well on this side of the ball and will be taking on an LSU squad that is missing a whopping 82% of their yardage from last year. This looks to be an LSU offense that will struggle in the early going. Well then it is a good thing that this team has one of the best defenses in the nation to carry them through, at least until this offense catches up. Hug game for both teams and getting two rather conservative coaches helps as well. I look for this one to be played at around 40 points at best.
(Risking $30.00 To Win $27.27) Florida State -19 Over Oklahoma State: The Seminoles just may be the best team in the nation, especially on paper, but im still not sure they will win the National Title. They should, though, win this game rather easily. Experience is key, especially early in the year and in that respect the Noles have a huge edge as they are 39th in the nation in terms of experience, while the Cowboys are the least experienced team in the nation. Florida State may have the best offense and defense in the nation and will be facing an Oklahoma State squad that has just 4 starters back on each side of the ball. The Cowboys return just 49.6% of their yardage (94th in nation) and just 35% of their tackles (127th) and they have just 38 career starts on the OL, while the Noles have 110 career starts on theirs. Florida State had some distractions in the offseason, but they can put them behind them with a huge early win over an outmanned Cowboys squad.
BEST OF THE REST
(Risking $15.00 To Win $13.64) Virginia/ UCLA Under 55: This is a tough travel spot for the Bruins and that should also mean so sluggish play. After all their will be playing at 9am west coast time. This will also be taking on a Virginia team that looks to have one of the better defenses in the ACC. The have 27 of 32 lettermen back on that side of the ball, with 9 of them being starters and have added some solid depth as well. The Cavs have to look to their defense to win games, because their offense just will not do much damage this year. They are also not a hurry up type of offense and will look to run the ball with an outstanding group of RBs. Running the ball also keeps the potent UCLA offense off the field as well. The Bruins are not all about offense, as they have 8 starters back from a defense that allowed just 23.2 ppg last year. This defense rates 2nd best in the Pac-12.
(Risking $20.00 To Win $18.18) Washington -17.5 over HAWAII: The Huskies are a very good team this year and really have a shot at a nice easy win to open their season. In this game they get to flex their muscles vs a Hawaii team that will struggle big time this year. Hawaii went just 1-11 last year and look like it will be another long one for them. They just aren't able to recruit solid players right now and along with poor expected play on the field they have been dealing with some off the field issues that includes talk of the football program folding. Washington went a solid 9-4 last year and have 14 starters back, plus new coach Chris Petersen steps in and he knows how to blow out much the weaker teams that he faces. Hawaii is just 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games and I feel that trend will continue here as the Huskies win by at least 21.
