REASON FOR PICK: This is a Free #NCAAF play on the Washington State Cougars. The Arizona Wildcats are 5-1, but I don't think this team is as good as it's record would indicate. Remember they were well on their way to losing at home to Cal, but they rallied for 36 points in the fourth quarter, capped by a game ending Hail Mary TD pass. The big upset win over Oregon was aided by a cheap penalty on the Ducks for celebrating a sack that would have ended Arizon'a game winning drive. Arizona is giving up points on the road at Washington State this week, and the Cougars 2-5 record includes a couple of home losses by a combined four points to Rutgers and Cal. It was a missed chip shot field goal with 19 seconds left that saw them lose to Cal 60-59. Connor Halliday leads the nation in passing yards by a country mile, and he's got an explosive receiving corps with three players with over 600 yards and seven TDs (Craycraft, Myers and Mayle). The Cougars weakness is their defense that ranks 103rd nationally allowing over 35 points per game. The Wildcats aren't a whole lot better though, so chances are that this game is going to be a shootout. I'll take the home team plus the points. Take WSU. GL, Jesse Schule
REASON FOR PICK: Each of these teams much improved this season, and really like both, though tempted a bit more in USM pick. But slightly prefer "over" as both of these QBs Sokol and Mullens have nice feels for game and enough balance in their offenses to do some damage, especially with "total" under 60. Play La Tech-Southern Miss "Over" 55
REASON FOR PICK: Play - Oakland Raiders.  Edges - Raiders: 11-2 ATS as road dogs of 6 or more points a losing record off an NFC game; and 6-1 ATS with revenge off a double-digit home loss. Browns: 0-8 ATS versus opponents with revenge who scored 7 or fewer points last game.  With Oakland enjoying the  benefit from a late 4:25 ET kick off, and interim head coach Tony Sparano 8-2 SU and 9-1 ATS as a road dog against opponents off a SU loss, we’ll grab the points.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Oakland.  Thank you and good luck as always.      • Look: Marc killed the NFL card last week, going 5-1 on his top six releases. His powerful database has isolated a team and its coach, and a quarterback on the opposing team, in dynamite situations in which one has NEVER LOST and the other NEVER WON the money.  It’s his Most Valuable Play Sunday and it’s available right now.  You know what to do!
REASON FOR PICK: As of print I am riding a 33-10 overall football HOT STREAK including a 17-5 NFL run on paid games. Sunday is PAYDAY once again as I have my 6-2 MVP, 66% TOUCHDOWN, 2-0 HIGH ROLLER, and 6-1 BEST BET winners for you. Jump on my HOT STREAK and get rich. NFL FREE WINNER Play Seattle (Game 259). As Seattle has suffered back-to-back losses, they roll into Carolina and face a Panthers team that has just 1 win in their L5 contests. Their "D" is allowing more points (35 PPG their L5) as the season progresses. And with no ability to stop the run, the #2 Seahawks ranked rushing game will decimate the Panthers while QB, Russell Wilson will exploit the vulnerable Carolina secondary. The Seahawks defense can contain Cam Newton and the non-existent running game of the Panthers. The Seahawks are 4-1 ATS their L5 meetings in this series, 12-4 ATS their L16 road games, and 20-8 ATS their L28 vs. the NFC. Take Seattle. Thank you.
GAME: (171) MISSISSIPPI vs (172) LSU
REASON FOR PICK: As of print, I am on a 33-10 overall football run, including a 12-4 mark in my L16 paid NCAAF releases. This Saturday I continue to roll with my 1-0 TOUCHDOWN, MAC GAME OF THE MONTH, 1-0 HIGH ROLLER, and 1-0 TEN DIME PLAYS. Jump on my HOT STREAK and get paid. NCAAF FREE WINNER Play Mississippi (Game 171). At 7-0 overall, and 4-0 in SEC play, 'Ole Miss owns the nation's #1 scoring "D", allowing a mere 10.6 PPG. The Rebels have forced 20 TO's, including 15 INT's and will have their way with the Tigers young QB tandem. Bo Wallace (1899 YP and a 17/6 TD/INT ratio) and the offense is a big step up here for the LSU defense that was shredded by both Mississippi State and Auburn. The Rebels are 7-0 ATS this season, 9-0 ATS their L9 games played at the Tigers, and 10-3 ATS their L13 overall vs. the Tigers. Take Mississippi. Thank you.
REASON FOR PICK: Play - Temple. Edges - Owls: 8-1 ATS dogs 8 or more points with coach Matt Rhule; and also 6-1 ATS as road dogs with Rhule.  Knights: 2-7 ATS as favorites of 8 or more points; and 2-5 ATS versus .666 or less opponents.  The Owls added 5 and 4-star recruits TE Colin Thompson (Florida) and WR Keith Kirkwood (Hawaii) to the roster last week, both of whom are considered impact players.  With UCF losing the stats an average -79 YPG against fellow FBS foes this season, the points become the play here today.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Temple.  Thank you and good luck as always. • It doesn’t get any better than this: Marc’s famous 5* College Football Game of the Month… and it goes this Saturday.  Documented 63-28-3 on this huge play since 1990, including 5-0-1 the last two years, today’s 5* play is supported with a pair of awesome angles from Marc’s powerful database that are each 17-0 ATS since 1980.  Go get it!
REASON FOR PICK: Your free pick for Saturday, October 25th comes in college football as Wyoming and Colorado State battle it out in the Mountain West. Wyoming (3-4) is winless on the road and the Cowboys are 2-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, plus 17-36-1 ATS following a spread loss. The Wyoming Cowboys are ranked 115 on offense. The Colorado State Rams are 3-0 at home this season, 2-1 against conference opponents and 4-0 against non-conference opponents. The Rams are on an 18-7-1 ATS run, including 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. At home the Rams are averaging 35.7 scoring, and holding teams to 17.0 points scored on defense. The home team is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings and the Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Colorado State. Play Colorado State!
REASON FOR PICK: Massachusetts is just 2-6 on the season but it is much better than that record shows. Four of those losses have been by five points or less including three by a field goal or less so a few breaks here and there and the record could be a lot better. The Minutemen won just one game in each of the past two seasons but have already surpassed those totals thanks to its current two-game winning streak. Defeating Kent and Eastern Michigan may not be overly impressive but both wins were blowouts and they outgained the two opponents by 141 and 282 yards respectively. Toledo is coming off its bye week following a loss at Iowa St. which snapped its three-game winning streak. The Rockets are now laying their biggest number of the season which I feel is unjustified against one of the better teams in the MAC that are getting a different perception by the public. They have been outgained on four of their six games against teams from the FBS as their defense has been horrendous. That is not a good sign for a Massachusetts team that is starting to hit its stride offensively, averaging 39.8 ppg over its last four games. We don't need the outright victory here as getting this many points against a horrific defense is a sure take. That defensive ineptness is backed up by a situation where we play on road underdogs in the second half of the season that are averaging between 5.6 and 6.2 yppl going up against teams allowing between 5.6 and 6.2 yppl. This situation is 31-7 ATS (81.6 percent) over the last five seasons. Play (149) Massachusetts Minutemen

Matt rolls into Saturday as he looks to add to his HUGE start to the season! He is showing a +$6,082 profit in CFB YTD and he extends it with NINE Big Winners!
