Note: How did I go 5-8, including 1-3 in 4- or 6-Unit plays? I should have just flipped a coin. Hold off on my college picks until I figure things out. For legality purposes, this Web site does not promote or advocate gambling.



Oregon State (1-0) at Cincinnati (1-0)
Line: Oregon State by 3.5.

Thursday, 7:40 ET

It figures that I forgot to pick Clemson and they easily covered against Florida State. Why the Tigers? They were a live home dog playing at night on national TV, with the money coming in on the other side.

Eighty-two percent of the action in Vegas is on Oregon State, yet the Beavers don't really have a reliable quarterback. They do, however, have potent Yvenson Bernard, one of the top running backs in the Pac-10. Unfortunately for them, the Bearcats excel against the run.

This is not your dad's Cincinnati football team. This squad is now in a BCS conference and wants to prove itself in front of a national audience.

Prediction: Cincinnati 24, Oregon State 17
Cincinnati +3.5 (4 Units - Double Money Pick) -- Correct; +$400
Cincinnati 34, Oregon State 3.



West Virginia (1-0) at Marshall (0-0)
Line: West Virginia by 24.

Saturday, 11:00 ET

We know the Mountaineers are great. We know Marshall sucks (lost 31-3 to garbage Miami). West Virginia clobbered the Heard last year. I don't see why this doesn't happen again. I think the Mountaineers can name the score of this contest.

Prediction: West Virginia 42, Marshall 10
West Virginia -24 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
West Virginia 48, Marshall 23.



Buffalo (0-1) at Temple (0-1)
Line: Temple by 3.5.

Saturday, 1:00 ET

Are you ready for some MAC action!? No? OK... I know the Owls are playing lowly Buffalo, but this is one of the biggest games in Temple's program in a long time. This is the Owls' first stab at the MAC and they want to begin with a victory. Ads for this contest are all over the radio in Philadelphia. Plus, Temple has gotten better with Al Golden on the sidelines.

Friday night update: I'm raising Temple to four units after discussing this game with some sharps. The Owls are going to lay a beat down on the Bulls!

Prediction: Temple 20, Buffalo 10
Temple -3.5 (4 Units - Double Money Pick) -- Incorrect; -$440
Buffalo 42, Temple 7.



Oregon (1-0) at Michigan (0-1)
Line: Michigan by 8.

Saturday, 3:30 ET

I can't believe Michigan is underrated. First of all, the fact that they were excluded from the top 25 is embarrassing for every voter on that poll. Secondly, the Wolverines were actually playing a really good team in Appalachian State. After hearing about how much they suck all week, Michigan is bounce back and rip apart this mediocre Ducks squad.

Prediction: Michigan 34, Oregon 20
Michigan -8 (4 Units - Double Money Pick) -- Incorrect; -$440
Oregon 39, Michigan 7.



Notre Dame (0-1) at Penn State (1-0)
Line: Penn State by 17.5.

Saturday, 6:00 ET

After getting demolished 33-3 at home, Notre Dame takes its freshman quarterback into Happy Valley to play in front of a White Out crowd of 108,000. Good luck with all that. The Fighting Irish beat Penn State last year, as Anthony Morelli was making his first road start. The Nittany Lions get to return the favor this time. I've been waiting for this game for almost 12 months now, so I could make it my Pick of the Month (for September).

Prediction: Penn State 41, Notre Dame 7
Penn State -17.5 (6 Units - NCAA Pick of the Month) -- Correct; +$600
Penn State 31, Notre Dame 10.



Kent State (1-0) at Kentucky (1-0)
Line: Kentucky by 13.

Saturday, 6:00 ET

I've mentioned this so many times my wrists and fingers are starting to hurt. Kentucky is one of the most underrated teams in the nation, and I plan on betting on them until the public realizes how good they are - or I go broke. Either or.

Prediction: Kentucky 45, Kent State 20
Kentucky -13 (4 Units - Double Money Pick) -- Correct; +$400
Kentucky 56, Kent State 20.



Virginia Tech (0-1) at LSU (1-0)
Line: LSU by 13.

Saturday, 9:15 ET

Virginia Tech's offense is garbage. Sean Glennon is the NCAA version of Trent Green - a mediocre quarterback who has a bad habit of throwing the ball short of the first-down marker on third down. Branden Ore looks sluggish. LSU should be able to win in a blowout.

Prediction: LSU 31, Virginia Tech 10
LSU -13 (4 Units - Double Money Pick) -- Correct; +$400
LSU 48, Virginia Tech 7.
