Pick
Over 64.5 (-106) @ Fanduel

Total of the Week - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CFB Rotation #107 Friday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Tulane Green Wave vs SMU Mustangs @ 6 ET - I am going to take advantage of the line move here. With season ending injuries to Mustangs WR Roberson and RB McDaniel we've now seen this total drop down to a 64.5 from a 69 and I love the value here. Keep in mind SMU has a very deep WR group and also a ton of talent at the RB position. Sure they would love to have Roberson and McDaniel but they will get along just fine without them as long as QB Buechele is under center as he continues to light up defenses. Buechele should certainly have no problems with this Green Wave defense. Tulane allowed 476 yards in last week's trouncing at the hands of Houston and now face an SMU offense that has averaged nearly 400 yards passing per game in their match-ups with FBS competition. As for the Mustangs defense, I do not trust them and that is why I am big on the over in this one. Tulane has a talented offense, particularly when at home, and the Southern Methodist defense has allowed at least 24 points in all 3 of its FBS games but that easily could me more. The Mustangs have been fortunate because when you look at the yardage stats in those games the fact is that SMU is struggling to get stops. The Green Wave are averaging 37 points per game this season and the Mustangs are averaging 44 points per game this season. If you like seeing the scoreboard lit up this is the place to be on Friday night! 10* OVER in Tulane

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
