College Football Week 4 Bets

After an undefeated Saturday last weekend, the blog is now 6-3 on the year and King Nom is ready to go on a heater with his picks.  Onward to week 4 and our picks!

Live look at King Nom

Brew Hand Bet One: Maryland vs Michigan (Michigan -17)

LaGrange Park product JJ McCarthy has taken the reins as the starting QB for Michigan and is ready to become a force in the B1G as well as nationally.  Michigan has been on cruise control the first 3 weeks of the season with inferior opponents but McCarthy already looks dominant.  Maryland has vastly improved and is 3-0, however, Michigan owns them and has covered the spread 6 straight seasons.  I expect more of the same as Michigan comes out hot and does not take their foot off the gas while making a statement to the selection committee in their conference opener.  GO BLUE!

Brew Hand Bet Two: Nicholas Singleton O83.5 Rushing Yards (Penn State)

Sticking with the B1G we head to Happy Valley with their 5 star true freshman running back, Nicholas Singleton.  People are already comparing Singleton to former Penn State bell cow Larry Johnson as he has been on a tear comparable to Johnson’s to start the year.  In the 3 games to start the season, Singleton has averaged 11.1 yards per carry, not a typo, this leads the nation and includes last week against SEC foe Auburn.  Additionally, he already has 5 rushes of 40 plus yards.  This kid is a workhorse and this number is far too low.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see this number hit the over before halftime.    

King Nom’s #108ing Bet: Kansas State vs Oklahoma (Oklahoma -12.5)

Oklahoma returns home for a prime time matchup against Kansas State.  Off to a 3-0 start this season, the Sooners are averaging 500 yards and 42 points a game.  QB Dillon Gabriel is off to a hot start leading this offense and hasn’t thrown an interception yet this season.  Look for Oklahoma to come out strong at home and put up another solid performance on both sides of the ball and cover the spread with no issues.
