10/6 VIRGINIA TECH+6.5 over notre dame – L
This smells like a trap game for ND. They travel to hostile Blacksburg where they have never played. Ian Book has had smooth sailing in first 2 games playing with a lead and not throwing any interceptions. Bud Foster’s defense will surely put him under duress with a raucous home crowd. VT has a backup QB but he looked good last week in his first start and is a 4-year junior with experience from KU. In addition, ND lost it’s best offensive lineman Bars last week to injury.
10/6 FLORIDA+2.5 over lsu – W
These 2 teams seem very even. Both have acceptable QBs but not dynamic ones. Both have strong defenses. Both need to run the ball to succeed. FLA has better special teams stats and I believe the better coach with Dan Mullen.
10/6 clemson-17.5 over WAKE FOREST – W
clemson has a big talent advantage and with Trevor Lawrence healthy has a big edge in QB play. Both teams are starting true freshmen but Lawrence has lived up to his 5-star billing while Hartman is a 3-star. WF wants and needs to run the ball to be effective, but that is not a winning solution against clemson’s defense (2.7 YPC). WF’s hurry up will not bother clemson too much since they just played against syracuse’s hurry up.
