College Capper: Best Bets Week 4

Chris' Picks

Things didn't go as fully hoped last week, where the public money won out. I went against the grain with a couple of picks, both times on bad teams outside of the Power 5, and paid the price. Is this the week the book swings back, or should we stick with popular plays?

One final note, which may be more widely known by the time this is published, there are rumors of Virginia Tech being heavily shorthanded Saturday, which includes whispers under center. I don't trust NCST, but a small play before news breaks could reward.

Louisville (+3) at Pittsburgh

I don't want to swing too far from week to week, but Pittsburgh let me down, and their offense looks exactly as it has in year's past. A committee backfield with limited home run potential, and a high volume, low yardage passing attack that doesn't create big plays. It's that lack of big plays that dooms them, even against a Louisville defense we saw give up chunks upon chunks of yards last Saturday. The Cardinals' offense has been unstoppable through two games, and the Panthers won't be able to keep up. Louisville wins this straight up, but I'll take whatever points I'm afforded.
