Halloween college football lines and picks

Happy Halloween! In honor of the scariest holiday of the year, let’s revisit the most horrifying set of picks on the web (yet again). Last week, we got hooked by a late Iowa State score that left us at 3-5 for the week and 13-21 in what’s been the most forgettable season in the years I’ve been doing this column.

It’s not good, but did Michael Myers quit when Dr. Loomis shot him 6 times and he fell off the balcony? Nope. Did Jason quit after he caught a machete to the head and took a dirt nap? Nope. He rolled out of his grave, grabbed a spear and went back to work. And that’s what we’re gonna do - keep on chugging along.

VT at Louisville (+3.5). These teams are a couple of enigmas, but I like Louisville’s chances to score better, so I’ll take 3.5 pts at home.

UCF (-3) at Houston. This feels like a tricky spot for UCF, but they’re the overall more talented team, so I’m hoping that will clear A 3-point difference.

ND (-21) at G Tech. The Irish made me look foolish last week. Will they overlook Ga Tech with Clemson coming up? I don’t think so.

Texas at Okie State (-3.5). Okie State’s Chuba Hubbard gives Tom Herman a lump of coal in what you have to wonder could be a farewell season for the latter.

Arkansas (+14) at Texas A&M. I think the Hogs could win this outright, so I’ll take 2 touchdowns all day.

Ole Miss at Vandy; OVER 63.5. Ole Miss will get theirs, and they’re bad enough on defense to let Vandy score enough to push this over the mark.

UNC at Virginia (+7.5). Vegas is teasing me to take the hook, so I’ll fall for it and take it. UNC wins a squeaker, UVA gets the cover.
