CFB | South Alabama 20 @ Louisiana 17 | 10/01 | 9:00 PM UTC

Louisiana +8.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: South Alabama would be undefeated if not for a last-second loss against UCLA. The Jaguars could make some noise in the Sun Belt Conference but will have to avoid a letdown spot. Playing in Lafayette should pose an interesting challenge ATS-wise. South Alabama should continue to win, but the challenge of covering steep numbers will be the issue here. Take the home underdog in Louisiana.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 UL ATS PICKS

CFB | California 9 @ Washington St. 28 | 10/01 | 9:30 PM UTC

California +4

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Even in a loss last week, Washington State showed it has something special to build on with quarterback Cameron Ward. The sophomore dazzled on the big stage against Oregon and put himself on the map nationwide. Still, look for the Bears to neutralize what the Cougars want to do on both sides of the ball. They’ll control the pace of play and keep this game within reach late. Take the Bears and the points.

CFB | Miami (Ohio) 20 @ Buffalo 24 | 10/01 | 7:30 PM UTC

Buffalo -3

WIN

ANALYSIS: Last week, Buffalo ended a seven-game losing streak by handily defeating Eastern Michigan, 50-31. Now, for the second consecutive week, the Bulls aim to knock off a MAC opponent coming off a victory against a Power Five school. Look for the Bulls to rise to the challenge, as their offense continues to improve behind quarterback Cole Snyder. Take Buffalo to topple the RedHawks, who are coming off a victory against Northwestern.

CFB | Troy 34 @ W. Kentucky 27 | 10/01 | 11:00 PM UTC

Troy +5

WIN

ANALYSIS: All season long, oddsmakers have had trouble with the number with Western Kentucky. After a ridiculous 73-0 victory last week against Florida International, the eyes are now on Hilltoppers quarterback Austin Reed. Reed has had no issue transferring in from a Division II school, but there are bumps in the road for every player. Look for Reed to take a step back this week against a Troy defense that was stingy against Marshall.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 TROY ATS PICKS
+390 5-1 IN LAST 6 WKY ATS PICKS

CFB | Oklahoma 24 @ TCU 55 | 10/01 | 4:00 PM UTC

Oklahoma -6

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Jumping up from AAC to the Big 12 was a huge leap for Oklahoma quarterback Dillon Gabriel. Thus far, the pace and high level athletes has not deterred Gabriel as he has 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions. That production will be needed on the road against a TCU team that led from start to finish in last week’s victory over SMU. Expect a lot of points but for the Sooners to have the answers in a hostile road environment. Take Oklahoma.
