(339) Temple+ over Army (340) @ 12:00 Eastern
Saturday 3-4 Temple travels to West Point for a scrimmage with 5-2 Army. The visiting Owls have no victories over Football Championship units. Wins over East Carolina and UMass register FBS positives but, those units show 1-12 SU going into Saturday. The Owls are rebounding off a difficult 28-24 loss (which was on our ticket last Saturday) to UCONN. Whereas, the Cadets come in sporting a three-game winning streak over EMU, Rice and UTEP (3-16 SU on the season). Last year Army broke a six-game losing streak to Temple winning 28-13.
Critical here will be the availability of Temple QB Logan Marchi (35-54, 356) who was injured last week at home in the Huskies battle. The youngster had a productive game and HC Geoff Collins has stated: “Marchi is expected to be ready.” The biggest problem for the Owls will be their ability to curtail the Army running attack. In 2016 Temple struggled at the line of scrimmage trying to handle the more physically demanding Cadets, and that was in Philadelphia. Looking at this from the emotional standpoint, Army has Air Force on the road next time out. So, Temple off that bad loss just might have enough in the tank to hang close, considering their trying to become bowl eligible. With Army 8-18-1 ATS off a SU win and Temple 37-17-1 ATS in October, take TEMPLE plus the points. Good Luck.

H Chung vs Kevin Anderson
H Chung +1½ -131 at BMaker
Pick: 1* Chung +1.5 Sets or Chung to win (a) Set
– Kevin Anderson’s serve is among the most effective in the game, but it suffers indoors
– His kick serve is brilliant for dragging his opponent wide, but does not have the same effect on indoor/grass courts where the ball skids low
– Chung is a compact player and while he does have weaknesses, his returning & backhand are very strong, crucial for this matchup
– Anderson is just 2-2 since defeat in the US Open final, as the season winds down it might be hard to find motivation after reaching his first major final
Colorado vs Washington State
Colorado +10½ -110 at BMaker
Some of you will recall that I successfully played against the Cougars, at Cal, last week, the start of a 14-4 Fri/Sat/Sun streak. Washington State was “riding high,” entering that game. The 6-0 Cougs had a top-ten ranking and were coming off victories over USC and Oregon. They’d close as -16.5 point favorites.
Then, Friday The 13th got them. Something did, anyway. The Cougs didn’t show up and the Bears came away with a convincing 37-3 victory. Thats right. They beat the closing line by 50 points.
Off that rude awakening, I’m not sure that the Cougs are ready to be laying double-digits here. Colorado, which beat WSU by 14 points last season, is 9-4 ATS its last 13 true road games. Both this season’s road games have been close, each decided by four or fewer points. Take a look at the visitors here.
BYU vs East Carolina
East Carolina +5½ -110 at BMaker
Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #342 Take East Carolina Pirates over BYU Cougars (Saturday 7 pm CBSSN) There is just no way BYU should be favored against any FBS team on the road. These are two bad teams and thus getting over 5 points is too good to pass up. BYU is 1-6 on the season and they have not been competitive in any of those losses. A few of those games the score made it look more competitive than it actually was. The Pirates have played a difficult schedule with four of their six losses coming against ranked teams. BYU is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games overall. BYU has major issues on offense and I just do not see them winning this game straight-up. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports Weekend Football card featuring top plays in college football and NFL. Easily hit our NFL Game of the Year last week and now have collected on five straight top plays in the NFL. Jump on board the victory train now!
Colorado State vs New Mexico
New Mexico +7½ -110 at BMaker
Play – New Mexico (Game 314).
Edges – Lobos: Head coach Bob Davie 5-3 ATS in his career in games following a shutout loss… Rams: Air Force, Wyoming, and Boise State revenge games on deck. With the Lobos off an embarrassing 38-0 loss to Fresno State, and 11-4 SU at home in their last 15 home games, we recommend a 1* play on New Mexico. Thank you and good luck as always.

Arizona vs California
California +3 -105 at betonline
386 Arizona at California
The Wildcats are off back to back straight up upset wins over UCLA and Colorado. But this club is just 2-7 SU on the road as of yet, with one of those victories coming at UTEP. Simply can’t trust this club to win by a margin on the road against a decent team. Arizona is +8 explosive plays this season, while Cal sits at +11. The difference is that the Bears have played a 34 spot tougher schedule. Cal has only permitted 16 explosive plays in six FBS games this year. Only one team has managed more than 17 points at the half. The Bears are on the rise and the markets are slow to adjust. With an extra day to prepare off a positive upset of Washington State, we back the host on Saturday.
Arizona State vs Utah
Arizona State +9 -110 at 5Dimes
DMack’s Free Play for Saturday, October 21, 2017, is on the Arizona State Sun Devils
Don’t look now but the Arizona State Sun Devils look like they are playing to save Todd Graham’s job. After a slow 1-2 start, ASU has beaten Oregon and Washington at home as a double-digit dog and gave Stanford all it wanted in Palo Alto, easily covering the 17 point spread in a 10-point loss. The Pitchforks will never be more confident then they are here coming off 13-7 upset of No.5 UWub in a game where the defense held the Huskies to 36 points and 202 yards below their season average. Granted, Utah is 6-0 ATS this year, and has won and covered four straight in the series but … last year’s game was 28-26 late second half before the Utes pulled away with three gimme late scores. State not fat and happy after the Washington win and Utah really shouldn’t be laying double-digits to anyone with their LACK OF EXPLODICITY on offense. Let’s grab the points and say Utah 28-24.
Sochaux vs Tours
Sochaux +210 at Bovada
The free soccer pick takes place Friday in France’s League 2. Take the visitors as Tours is last of the 20 teams in the table and are -15 goal difference.

Cardinals vs Rams
UNDER 47½ -125
These NFC West rivals take their game to Great Britain on Sunday as they play in Twickenham. All was well with the Cardinals for a week as they beat the Bucs 38-33 last time out. They had scored just 42 points over the previous three weeks. Adrian Peterson became relevant one week and I’m not quite sure that happens again this week. Ironically, this will be Peterson’s second trip overseas as he did the same with the Saints a few weeks ago. The Rams offense has been putting up good numbers, but they finally get to face another solid unit. Jared Goff has struggled a bit as of late as the team has six turnovers the last two weeks. The Rams have gone under in nine of their last 15 games as a favorite and 22 of their last 38 overall.
Saints vs Packers
Saints -5½ -109 at BMaker
After losing 2 straight to open the season, the Saints have won 3 straight games (3-0 SU & ATS) while QB Brees has the offense humming while scoring 20, 34 & 52 points the last three games. The defense has forced 9 Turnovers in those 3 victories as well. That’s trouble for a Packers offense that lost QB Rogers to injury last Sunday and now starts the inexperienced QB Hundley, who tossed 3 Interceptions and only completed 18 of 33 when replacing Rogers last weekend. This Packers isn’t very deep this season and was winning behind QB Rogers and WRs Cobb & Nelson. Its tough to give Green Bay +5.5 points at Lambeau Field, which is why this rates as a 10* Play. However, expecting the Saints defense to make the difference in covering the spread by forcing some key Tirnovers!
10* Play On New Orleans Saints -5.5 points
