Emory's Past Picks
ALL

CFB | LSU 21 @ Auburn 17 | 10/01 | 11:00 PM UTC

LSU -8

LOSS

ANALYSIS: One of the better rivalries in college football is LSU/Auburn. Auburn's passing game is highly inconsistent, and they are facing one of the better defenses in college football; especially in the secondary. On the other side of the field, LSU is starting to find its groove offensively and are playing really will on both sides of the ball and will look to make a statement on the road in their first SEC road game of the season.

+125 9-7-1 IN LAST 17 LSU ATS PICKS

CFB | Washington 32 @ UCLA 40 | 10/01 | 2:30 AM UTC

Washington -2.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: We have a battle of unbeaten Pac-12 teams that are off to impressive starts to the season. This is the first real test for the UCLA Bruins in my opinion, and they are taking on a Washington squad that's getting excellent play from Indiana transfer Michael Penix Jr. What's even more impressive is that their defense is significantly better than last year. Washington looks to be on a mission, and come into this game with a much sturdier resume than the Bruins.

+183 4-2 IN LAST 6 UCLA ATS PICKS

CFB | San Diego St. 13 @ Boise St. 35 | 10/01 | 12:00 AM UTC

San Diego St. +6.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: There's turmoil out in Boise with their starting QB Hank Bachmeier now in the transfer portal, which puts a big time cloud over this team during a short week. In comes one of the more well disciplined teams in the Mountain West Conference in San Diego State, who's defense will be ready to take full advantage of this opportunity vs a new starting QB. Boise struggled against UTEP last weekend, and looking at nearly a full touchdown spread just doesn't sit right with me.

+765 12-4 IN LAST 16 BOISE ATS PICKS
+490 6-1 IN LAST 7 SDGST ATS PICKS

CFB | New Mexico 20 @ UNLV 31 | 10/01 | 3:00 AM UTC

UNLV -14.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This is the best team that Marcus Arroyo has had since he's arrived in Las Vegas. QB Doug Brumfield is playing efficient football and defensively they are playing really well within the front seven. New Mexico is in a transition this year, as their offense just is too young to find any level of consistency. Look for UNLV to seize the opportunity here on a Friday night in Vegas.

+380 6-2 IN LAST 8 UNLV ATS PICKS

NFL | Philadelphia 24 @ Washington 8 | 09/25 | 5:00 PM UTC

Philadelphia -6.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Eagles victory over the Vikings last weekend was more of a confidence builder for the defense more than anything. The coverage was excellent and they were able to get pressure when they needed to. Many will focus on Carson Wentz taking on his former team, but the real focus should be on whether or not this Commanders defense can slow down the explosive ball control offense of Philadelphia. I don't believe they can or will be able to do so.
