Barnes’ Bankroll Management Week 6

Barnes’ Bankroll Management Week 6

We’re back for another week of gambling picks!

Last week: 5-1-1 (83%)

Season total: 18-19-2 (49%)

Last week I told you all it was time to turn things around and we did just that eclipsing 80% picking winners. Let’s take that positive momentum into another week of college football picks!

Coastal Carolina (-19) at Arkansas State

The Red Wolves are on a four-game slide which includes a 49-point loss to a 1-2 Washington team. James Blackman has looked solid but I can’t see Arkansas State keeping up with the Chanticleers offensively.

Oklahoma (-3.5) vs Texas (Cotton Bowl)

The Red River Shootout (no, I will not call it the “Showdown”) always seems to deliver. Eight of the last nine contests have been one score games including last years overtime thriller. While Sooners QB Spencer Rattler has been a disappointment given he entered the season as a Heisman hopeful, I think he shows why so many futures bets were placed on him with a strong showing this weekend and an Oklahoma win covering the number.

Maryland at Ohio State (-21)

It seems most of the college football world had written off Ohio State after their early season loss to Oregon. Since then, all the Buckeyes have done is outscore their opponents by an average of 50-13. Maryland will be a step up in competition this weekend but the Bucks are in statement mode and I think they hang a serious number on the Terps Saturday.

Arkansas at Ole Miss (-6.5)

Sam Pittman is doing a fine job for the Hogs early in his tenure but he just doesn’t have the horses to keep up with Lane Kiffin’s hire-powered offense this weekend.

Georgia (-14.5) at Auburn

Georgia has been a covering machine going 4-1 ATS so far this season. They ride their stout defense to a comfortable win at Jordan-Hare Stadium this weekend improving to 5-1 against the number.

Wake Forest (-6.5) at Syracuse

Could Wake Forrest be the class of the ACC this season? Through five games, it certainly seems like it with Clemson’s continued struggles. You simply can’t come back from losing to Florida State and expect to keep it within a touchdown against Wake.

Florida State at North Carolina (-17.5)

After watching average to not good quarterbacks toy with our second level and back end for weeks, I just don’t have any confidence in Florida State being able to keep up in what would have to be a track meet for the ‘Noles to have any chance here. I think Sam Howell finds something that works early in the passing game and FSU is unable to adjust. This one ends up getting out of hand. Just a terrible matchup for FSU.
