@footballfan16 This is based off of my power rankings where I went week by week with each teams schedules trying to guess what their end of the year record would be. It is on the site, I tried to put the url in the description, but it wouldn't save.
@Punk Ass Jerry My order is based off the power rankings I did for this site. I tried to put the url in the description, but it won't save. As for the Bucs they play a sort of difficult schedule also I think the defense will take a bit of a dip without Lovie Smith. Also I suspect Winston will have a sophomore slump like so many quarterbacks in recent seasons. I also just don't trust them outside of a Super Bowl run more than 10 years ago they have been a dysfunctional mess their whole history. We just saw Ramsey go top 5 and he is probably best as a safety so why not find one for the Bucs who has Chris Conte starting in one spot....ew. I don't believe that a there is a certain order to who should go where smart teams take the guy they want no matter where they pick. If he works out no one will care where he was picked 3 years from now.

Temple (3-1) at Army (3-1) Line: Temple by 5. Saturday, 12:00 ET
Temple gave a great effort at Penn State. Fortunately for the Nittany Lions, Heisman candidate Bernard Pierce suffered an injury, which prompted the Owls to fall apart.
Pierce is listed as doubtful for this game, and even if he plays, he won't be 100 percent coming off an ankle sprain. Temple simply cannot move the football without Pierce. Combine that with the fact that the Owls are coming off a very emotional loss, and Army seems like a solid play here.
Prediction: Army 16, Temple 13 Army +5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Kentucky (3-1) at Ole Miss (2-2) Line: Ole Miss by 3. Saturday, 12:20 ET
Kentucky beat up three epically crappy teams to open the season, but then was trashed by Florida last week. Ole Miss is the better squad here. Their season was a bit derailed in that ridiculous upset to Jacksonville State, but they've seemed to have gotten their act together.
Prediction: Ole Miss 24, Kentucky 14 Ole Miss -3 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Virginia Tech (2-2) at N.C. State (4-0) Line: Virginia Tech by 3.5. Saturday, 3:30 ET
As I said last week, Virginia Tech's loss to James Madison shouldn't be taken seriously. They put zero effort into that game. I'm betting the Hokies until further notice. They're extremely underrated, and this spread should be -6 or higher.
Prediction: Virginia Tech 24, N.C. State 10 Virginia Tech -3.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Florida International (0-3) at Pittsburgh (1-2) Line: Pittsburgh by 17.5. Saturday, 3:30 ET
I really don't understand this spread. Florida International, despite its 0-3 record, is a solid team. They've lost to Rutgers by 5, Texas A&M by 7 and Maryland by 14. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, is complete garbage. The Panthers' quarterback is some 5-foot-6 scrub who can't get the ball to his best player, Jonathan Baldwin. I will be completely shocked if Pitt somehow covers 17.5.
Prediction: Pittsburgh 19, Florida International 17 Florida International +17.5 (5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$550
Stanford (4-0) at Oregon (4-0) Line: Oregon by 7. Saturday, 8:00 ET
The wrong team is favored. Everyone is making a big deal about Oregon scoring all of these points, but whom exactly have the Ducks done this against? New Mexico? Congrats. A Tennessee squad that can barely beat UAB? Awesome. Portland State? Whoop-dee-freaking-doo. Arizona State? Not a bad team, but then again, Oregon didn't cover the spread in that matchup.
Stanford, on the other hand, completely destroyed a UCLA team that went on to beat Houston and Texas. I really don't get why this line isn't Oregon -3.
