Saturday, October 05, 2019 South Florida vs. Connecticut (NCAAF) - 12:00 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 11/-110 Connecticut Rating: 8* Mike's CFB Public Missed Perception Play Loss Because of Connecticut's low ranking, the mushes are PILING it DEEP on the visiting Bulls from South Florida of HC Charlie Strong. However, 2nd-stint HC Randy Edsall (14th year here combined) has 10 starters returning from his defense & is very capable of hanging here. South Florida looked HORRIBLE versus S.M.U.! How do you get up for THIS roadie? Let's gladly go to Pratt & Whitney Stadium @ Rentschler Field in Storrs to play the home-standing CONNECTICUT HUSKIES (at + 11 1/2) as my 8* CFB Public Missed Perception Play! Auburn vs. Florida (NCAAF) - 3:30 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 3.5/-115 Florida Rating: 9* 9* SEC Play Of The Week (WIN) The BIG thing for us HAS to be the gators' "D" getting back key defensive personnel like CB C.J. Henderson & DB Jabari Zuniga. With both of them back, I'm not sure the run-heavy game plan of the Tigers push Florida all over the field. I expect a lower scoring game that should be won by a 3-4 points. Look for DC Todd Grantham to force Auburn QB bo Nix to do things way out of his comfort zone through the air. Let's bank on it as we go homecoming @ Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in "The Swamp" in front of the Gainesville faithful to play the FLORIDA GATORS (at + 4 1/2) as my 9* SEC Play Of The Week! Tulane vs. Army (NCAAF) - 12:00 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -130 Tulane Rating: 8* Mike's CFB 8* Earlybird (WIN) We'll lead off with a dandy! Yes, Army's triple-option should have beaten Michigan. When it comes down to push & shove, Tulane had 2+ weeks (played Houston on a Thursday) to prepare & is very familiar with the Black Knights' offensive schemes. Why do I say that? Because Green Wave DC Jack Curtis coached with Army HC Jeff Monken 3 seasons. This maybe homecoming with distraction for Army which aids our cause. This is an AWAY series with 4 winners the last 5 including the last time out with Tulane beating the cadets 34-31 in 2015. We'll gladly grab HC Willie Fritz with his spread option (usually from the shotgun) & will use a no-huddle in given situations. Coming in with major confidence after their upset of Houston, I love our chances. Let's go to Michie Stadium in West Point, NY to play the TULANE GREEN WAVE as my CFB 8* Earlybird! TCU vs. Iowa State (NCAAF) - 12:00 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 3.5/-115 TCU Rating: 8* Mike's 8* Big 12 Survivor (LOSS) These 2 may look like they're hard to separate since they have similar scoring margins. However, HC Gary Patterson has had the Cyclones number 4 of the last 5 & gets it again here! He KNOWS the defensive blueprints to stop QB Brock Purdy because they were just laid by Baylor last week. The Horned Frogs run an offense not typical to that of your pass til' you're gassed Big 12 team. I'm ready! Let's go to Jack Trice Stadium in Ames to play the T.C.U. HORNED FROGS as my 8* Big 12 Survivor! Pittsburgh vs. Duke (NCAAF) - 8:00 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 4/-110 Pittsburgh Rating: 8* 8* ACC Upriser (WIN) This is no disrespect to HC David Cutcliffe. I feel HC Pat Narduzzi gets the upper hand from a team that looked disinterested through their game with Delaware last week. Pitt is for real as they've already proved in a hostile environment @ Penn State. Look for their "A" game to come out with their bye week immediately on deck. Even though Duke QB Quentin Harris isn't too shabby, he is no Daniel Jones (currently the starting QB of the N.Y. Giants). Pittsburgh has proven they win on the ACC road with wins @ Wake Forest & Virginia last year. Let's trek to Wallace Wade Stadium to play the PITTSBURGH PANTHERS (@ + 4 1/2) as my 8* ACC Upriser! NOTES: It was a successful week but not as planned as the UConn Huskies (10 defensive starters back) yielded 313 rushing yards to give South Florida their first FBS win (& cover) of the season. We have to pleased with outright wins by Florida & Pitt in the underdog roles. The Pittsburgh defense was swarming creating 6 turnovers on their way to a hard-fought 33-30 victory. The Panthers remain 1 game behind Coastal Division-leader Virginia in the ACC. The Gators (even though they lost 4 fumbles) generated 4 turnovers in "The Swamp" in a decisive 24-13 win that pushed them into 1st place in the SEC East (3-0;6-0 overall) 1/2 game ahead of Georgia (2-0;5-0 overall). We told you Tulane was for real after their upset win over Houston. Willie Fritz & his spread-option BEAT Army @ their own game out-rushing them 324 to 193 in a 42-33 win in West Point. The Green Wave (1-0; 4-1 overall) resumes play in the AAC this week as they sit 1/2 game behind S.M.U. (2-0;6-0 overall) in the AAC West. Stay tuned as it's a strong possibility this weekend will be a signature weekend where we'll put out 5-7 picks & guarantee to finish 70% or higher. Mike Handzelek's CFB 2019 Week 6 Record: 3-2 for 60% Mike Handzelek's 2019-20 CFB Overall Record: 10-8 for a rising 55%
