It’s once again time for our college football gambling picks.

We’re 5-5 through the first two weeks of college football. I’m not overly pleased with sitting at .500. It’s not the worst, but we can certainly be doing a lot better. I’m here to make you guys rich, not to have you guys break even.

Having said that, lets dive into five picks to make everybody some money this week and bump our overall record above .500.

1) UCLA (-3) vs. Memphis:

I was shocked when I saw this line. Bet big on Josh Rosen and the Bruins. I would even have taken UCLA if they tacked on a few extra points to the spread. I don’t expect this game to very close at all.

2) Tennessee (+4.5) vs. Florida:

Florida might be favored, but I’m very comfortable with taking Tennessee and the points. Florida can’t move the ball at all, and the quarterback play is pathetic.

3) Alabama (-28.5) vs. Colorado State:

This game will be over by the end of the first quarter. Take the Tide big.

4) LSU (-7) vs. Mississippi State:

LSU looks like they’re the only team in the SEC capable of hanging with Alabama. The game might be in Starkville, but it won’t make much of a difference. Expect LSU to crush them.

5) Clemson (-3) vs. Louisville:

Louisville has the reigning Heisman winner in Lamar Jackson, but Clemson has a much better team from top to bottom. I like Clemson to win by at least three on the road against the Cardinals.

Good luck everybody. Make sure to spend your winnings wisely.
