Chode’s Week 3 College Picks

Featured, Sports and Bets — September 13, 2013 at 8:31 pm by

After a 1-1 split last week I’m sitting at 3-2 In NCAA football so far this year. Lets see if we can’t get hot this week.

 Game 1

Virginia Tech @ East Carolina                

Time 12:00 PM  Fox Sports 1

 Line: VA Tech -7.5

Chode’s Pick: VA Tech

 I have had a personal rule not to bet against East Carolina’s head coach Ruffin McNeill ever since he aggressively, and intentionally, played for a cover, not a win, as interim head coach of Texas Tech in the 2010 Alamo Bowl. For the record, the Red Raiders covered that day, but rules were meant to be broken. I’m taking the Hokies here.

Game 2

University of Central Florida @ Penn State

 Time 6:00 Pm Big Ten Network

 Line: Penn State -6

Chode’s pick: UCF

 Maybe I have been hitting the bottle a little too hard lately talking about taking UCF  at Beaver stadium, but hey, its called gambling for a reason. I don’t think they win outright, but UCF will keep this one close enough that a FG will determine the outcome.

Game 3

Mississippi State @ Auburn

Time 7:00 PM ESPN2

 Line: Auburn-6.5

Chode’s Pick: Mississippi St

 Similar to my prior UCF pick, I don’t know if they pull off the outright upset, but I do think they will keep it close enough to cover. SEC games are never easy. Don’t sleep on the Bulldogs.
