Kenny's Past Picks
ALL

CFB | UTSA 45 @ Middle Tenn. 30 | 09/30 | 11:30 PM UTC

Middle Tenn. +4.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Blue Raiders have the far better defense, ranking 25th in the country in yards per play (4.66). UTSA ranks 102nd (6.03). Middle Tennessee beat the Hurricanes in Miami last week, 45-31. Both teams are playing their first Conference USA game. I'm on the Blue Raiders.

CFB | Utah St. 26 @ BYU 38 | 09/30 | 12:00 AM UTC

Utah St. +24

WIN

ANALYSIS: Every game is a snowflake in terms of energy and focus. Utah State is very well-coached by Blake Anderson but is off to a rough start at 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS. The Aggies opened with Connecticut, a team they took lightly but defeated 31-20, then lost at Alabama 55-0. They could’ve brought their best effort ever and still lost by 55 points. The next week was against Weber State, an in-state rival but a bigger game for the Wildcats, who pulled off a 35-7 upset over the 7-point favorite Aggies. Next up was what I’m sure the Aggies thought was another sure win against UNLV, but the Rebels are vastly improved and posted a 34-24 victory. This week, BYU should take Utah State very lightly as the Aggies will be playing their Super Bowl against big brother. Take Utah State and the points.

+600 6-0 IN LAST 6 BYU ATS PICKS

CFB | W. Kentucky 30 @ Indiana 33 | 09/17 | 4:00 PM UTC

W. Kentucky +6.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Hilltoppers have had this date circled on the calendar after losing a tough 33-31 game last year to Indiana. Western Kentucky had an extra week to get healthy and prepare for the Hoosiers. I think Western should be the favorite. I'm taking the Hilltoppers.

MLB | L.A. Dodgers 3 @ Arizona 5 | 09/15 | 1:40 AM UTC

OVER 9

LOSS

ANALYSIS: We have two average starting pitchers to along with the potent Dodgers offense and an Arizona lineup that has been improved of late. Take the Over in this one.

+837 16-8 IN LAST 24 MLB PICKS
+683 20-12-1 IN LAST 33 LAD O/U PICKS
+451 10-5 IN LAST 15 ARI O/U PICKS

CFB | California 17 @ Notre Dame 24 | 09/17 | 6:30 PM UTC

Notre Dame -11

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Fighting Irish gave an all-out effort in their season-opening loss at Ohio State and then overlooked a very solid Marshall program. This week, we get the benefit of the line being over-adjusted due to last week's loss. California struggled offensively against both UC Davis and UNLV at home. Now, the Golden Bears are on the road against Notre Dame's tough defense. It will be a long day for California.

+190 3-1 IN LAST 4 CAL ATS PICKS
+290 4-1 IN LAST 5 ND ATS PICKS
