Max's Picks (1 Live)

New Orleans @ Carolina | 09/19 | 5:00 PM UTC



ANALYSIS: The Saints usually enjoy their visits to Charlotte. ... Join SportsLine here to see the full pick!

Utah 31 @ San Diego St. 33 | 09/18 | 11:00 PM UTC

San Diego St. +8.5


ANALYSIS: Both teams have run-heavy offenses. The difference is going to be San Diego State’s spectacular rush defense. The Aztecs held each of their first two opponents under 50 yards on the ground. Take the points.

Middle Tenn. 13 @ UT-San Antonio 27 | 09/18 | 10:00 PM UTC

UT-San Antonio -13.5


ANALYSIS: UTSA has looked very impressive. The Roadrunners opened with a shocking upset of Illinois, scoring 37 points. On the other hand, Middle Tennessee looked terrible last week. Yes it was against a ranked team, but the Blue Raiders showed nothing. Virginia Tech ran all over them and scored 35 points before taking their starters out. Middle Tennessee wasn’t able to move the ball at all until garbage time. UTSA ran for 217 yards on Illinois and should be able to do the same in this game. Lay the points.

Kent St. 7 @ Iowa 30 | 09/18 | 7:30 PM UTC

Iowa -23


ANALYSIS: Iowa looks as good as any team in the country right now. The Hawkeyes have dominated both of their games versus ranked opponents. Kent State got manhandled in Week 1, losing by 31 at Texas A&M, before beating up on VMI at home last week. Now the Golden Flashes have to go to Iowa and face one of the nation's best defenses in the nation. I don’t see Kent State scoring more than 10 points as Iowa covers this spread easily.

C. Carolina 28 @ Buffalo 25 | 09/18 | 4:00 PM UTC

C. Carolina -14


ANALYSIS: Coastal Carolina looks just as good as last year, if not better. Since the start of last season, Coastal is 11-3 ATS and 13-1 SU. Buffalo looked terrible last week, putting up only three points. The Chanticleers are going to dominate.
