NC State vs Clemson 3:
Clemson is an 18 point favorite going into their matchup against NC State this week. We've all seen what Clemson is capable of this season, they've beaten everyone on their schedule, and 3 of their last 4 wins have been blowouts. Deshaun Watson continues to prove why he is the best quarterback in college football, it's going to be tough for any team to beat a team with a quarterback this talented and experienced. NC State made some noise last week though when they physically dominated Notre Dame, their offense didn't play great, but their defense was not letting Notre Dame doing anything. Now, with that being said, Clemson's offense is on a different level than Notre Dame's and for that reason I won't give NC State much of a chance in this one. The defense for NC State might help them stay in this game, but the offense will keep them from having any hopes of winning. Clemson will continue to roll, they'll cover the spread, and Deshaun Watson will continue to build his Heisman resume.
Alabama 1 vs Tennessee 9:
Alabama has to go on the road against a conference rival in one of the better games of the afternoon. Tennessee is coming off a heartbreaking loss against Texas A&M, it was a brutal war, most games that Tennessee has played this season have been brutal wars. That's the reason I think they'll be getting blown out by the Crimson Tide today. Alabama is coming off back to back to back blowout wins, meaning their players probably aren't all that physically tired. On the other hand, Tennessee has been in back to back to back wars in which they had to make comebacks in all of them. It's going to be nearly impossible for them to mount one of their miracle comebacks against this Bama defense. I know a lot of people are expecting a great game with this matchup, but I believe Bama is going to take care of business with relative ease today.
Ole Miss 12 vs Arkansas 22:
Another game with high expectations that I don't think will meet them. Ole Miss has a very explosive offense, we've all seen Chad Kelly light up Nick Saban's defense multiple times over the course of his career at Ole Miss. Arkansas's defense against ranked opponents this season has let up 38+ points in three games, they're not going to be able to win many games letting up that many points. Arkansas is also coming off a loss to Alabama where they were just physically manhandled. Ole Miss is coming off a bye week so this is the freshest they've been all season. Basically this is the perfect storm for an Ole Miss blowout over Arkansas. Arkansas falls off the map after today as they haven't been able to beat a real quality opponent this season, the win over TCU looks nice, but who has TCU beat, nobody. Arkansas is going to get exposed by a real football team today, and it's going to be real ugly.
Ohio State 2 vs Wisconsin 8:
This game makes me very nervous, Wisconsin is at home, they're coming off a bye week, and Ohio State is coming off their worst game of the season. If you look at the score of last week's game for Ohio State against Indiana, you'd think the Buckeyes dominated. That was not the case as the offense struggled mightily, obviously they were still able to shit on Indiana because they're not a football school, but this should've been a 56-17 game, not a 35-17 game. Wisconsin seems like they have everything going for them going into this game, too bad the simple fact of the matter is, Ohio State is a way better football team. Wisconsin's quarterback is not going to be able to keep Wisconsin's offense afloat in this game. I know the Badger defense is great, but the Buckeye offense is better. J.T. Barrett is going to have a huge game as Ohio State shows the Big 10 that they're the predator and that the rest of the teams are just their prey. The Michigan game is coming up so we have to start with the mind games now.
