We continued our winning ways last week, going 8-2 and increasing our year to date performance to a very nice 6.9 units. We have some Friday night action tonight and an especially tasty slate on Saturday. So buckle up and let's continue to stack units. On to the picks...

Arizona State (+4) at California
Week 5 action starts tonight with some Pac-12 action, as Herm Edwards and his Sun Devils invade California Memorial Stadium. The Cal Bears are 4-0 and coming off a road victory over Ole Miss. Arizona State sits at 3-1 after losing at home to Colorado last Saturday. After beating Sparty 2 weeks ago, the Sun Devils as 7.5-point home favorites decided not to show up.  They are getting 4 points this week on the road and our model likes this at a pick ‘em. We will back the road dog and look for an outright victory to start another hot weekend of college football.

Clemson at North Carolina (+27)
The Tar Heels were one of our two losses last weekend, but we find ourselves on them again. Going against one of the top scoring teams in the nation is always a tough pill to swallow but value is value. We like that they have back to back home games and a ton of points to cover this one. Our models like this as about a 3-score game and the line sits just shy of 4. We must take the points and get one back from UNC.

Middle Tennessee State at Iowa (-23)
Teams coming off byes are always scary. You never know if they are going to be crisp or lethargic. Two weeks ago, the Hawkeyes went to Iowa St and escaped with a 1-point victory. They sit at 3-0 and ranked 14th. They face a 1-2 Blue Raider team who is coming off a bye as well. Two weeks ago, they got destroyed at home by Duke. This should be a 4-touchdown spread and we get some value at -23.5. We will lay the points and hope Kirk Ferentz can get his Hawkeye team some style points at home we a much needed blowout win. 

Florida Atlantic (+1) @ Charlotte
Joey Freshwater is turning his ship around after two straight wins. We have Florida Atlantic as the better team here by all measures. We don’t think that Jerry Richardson Stadium presents much of a hostile road environment and love the Owls to cover/win in this Conference USA game. Take the point for the Lane Train and cash our 2nd FAU cover of the year.

LA-Lafayette (-3) @ Georgia Southern
The Raging Cajuns come into this game averaging a blistering 500 yards per game! That’s good for 17th in the country. GA Southern is averaging a measly 17 points a game on 150 yards, putting them almost last in the country. We have ULL as the best team in the conference and the far superior squad to Georgia Southern. Couple shots of tobacco for the boys and this one will be out of reach quickly. Lay the points for the Ragin Cajuns and enjoy a couple shrimp on the house with this easy cover.
