Rutgers vs Wake Forest TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Preview

Well look at what we’ve got here. It’s an interesting curveball that might make this one of the more fascinating bowls of the late part of the season.

Texas A&M couldn’t go because of COVID issues, so in comes a Rutgers team that had the highest APR – Academic Progress Rate; the first criteria among programs that didn’t get to six wins – among 5-7 teams.

There’s a plus side to that. Even a healthy Texas A&M would’ve been missing a slew of key parts. It just means more to Rutgers.

Which style can take over the game early on? Wake Forest wants to go fast, keep the Scarlet Knight defense on its heels, and strike in a hurry with its exiting offense that can score points in bunches. Rutgers wants to grind this down to a dead stop.

– There’s no sugar-coating this – Rutgers can’t and doesn’t score. There’s a chance Wake Forest turns the lights on on this game in a hurry with a whole slew of early points, but the Scarlet Knight defense has been able to crank up the defense at times with a whole slew of takeaways.

The best Rutgers win was against … Illinois? The team didn’t have a win over anyone that went to a bowl game and failed to score more than 16 points in any of its seven losses.

Wake Forest had a magnificent run with an ACC Championship appearance. The loss to Pitt obviously wasn’t a plus, but it was great moment for the program just to get there. Win this, and a great season becomes something special. Lose, and it becomes the team that lost to the 5-7 fill-in.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Maryland vs Rutgers Game Preview


Why Maryland Will Win

Get up fast and this is over.

The Rutgers offense just doesn’t do much of anything offensively – it came up with 38 on Indiana, 20 on Illinois, and 13 or fewer in other six of the last eight games.

There’s absolutely no downfield passing game for the Terps to worry about – a saving grace for a pass defense that gets bombed on way too easily.

Maryland has the offense to get going right away through the air, coming up with 350 passing yards or more in three straight games and averaging well over 300 per game on the year.

Even a ten point lead could be insurmountable, but …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why Rutgers Will Win

Rutgers has enough of a running attack to take over and make the game go its way.

Maryland’s big problem is with the pass defense, and while Rutgers won’t throw for 300 yards, just completing a few key passes here and there might be enough as long as the ground game is grinding.

The Scarlet Knights were able to run for 230 yards on Illinois, and won. It was able to run for 218 yards on Indiana, and won. They’re 4-1 this year when getting to 160 yards rushing, and Maryland allows 160 yards per game.

Control the clock, force a few takeaways, and …

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

The winner is going bowling. The loser isn’t … maybe.

There probably won’t be enough bowl eligible teams, and Rutgers is close to the top of the Academic Progress Rate list. So if you’re a fan of Cal, or Texas, or Florida, root for the Scarlet Knights to knock Maryland out of the mix.

Maryland has the explosion and the offense Rutgers can’t find, but can it get things going just enough to force this into any sort of a mini-shootout?

Not really, but it’ll get just enough out of its offense to come up with the two second half scoring drives it’ll need to get out alive and with a sixth win.

The Terp defense will hold firm.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Penn State vs Rutgers Game Preview


Why Rutgers Will Win

The defense continues to be good enough.

Forget the steamrolling applied by Wisconsin a few weeks ago in a 52-3 Badger win, the Scarlet Knights continue to be terrific against the mediocre offenses.

They kept Indiana and Illinois down, they were good against the run against Northwestern, and they’ve allowed fewer than 300 yards of total offense in six of the ten games. Now they get a Penn State offense that can’t run, has a problem allowing plays behind the line, and is way too inconsistent.

However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Penn State Will Win

Penn State has a passing game.

Jahan Dotson has emerged as one of the nation’s top wide receivers – and a favorite among the NFL scouting community – Sean Clifford is solid when he gets time to throw, and the offense should be able to generate the explosion that the Rutgers attack really, really can’t.

The Scarlet Knight offense struggles to get to 300 yards, and it has to run well to win. The team is 3-0 when getting to 200 yards on the ground, and Illinois is the only team to push past 182 rushing yards on the Penn State defense.

Rutgers isn’t running for 200 yards in this.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

It’s an interesting moment for both teams.

Penn State is 6-4 and James Franklin is being talked about for every big head coaching opening, but there’s a big, big problem if there’s a fifth loss in six games – especially against a mediocre Rutgers team.

The Scarlet Knights can get bowl eligible with a win, but they’re going to have to wait until next week’s game against Maryland to do that. Their offense won’t be able to do enough.

Results So Far ATS: 62-48-1

After a rocky run it’s time for a road trip to shake things up a bit.

This week we go west for most of the 10 best predictions against the spread. There’s a reason for this – there are a TON of good-looking matchups – Nevada shouldn’t be an underdog against San Diego State and Utah State will probably beat San Jose State outright.

But first come the tried and true foundation selections.

While the picks have been up-and-down over the last few weeks – fewer games to choose from and less big spreads to exploit like there are in September – the overall record is still solid because of four core beliefs.

If you’ve been with the program, you know by now that …

1. Always go over on a point total in the mid-30s. Too many things can go right, unless it’s Army-Air Force, which once again proved to defy all laws of logic and reason.

2. Always go under on a point total in the mid-70s. Too many things can go wrong, like a torrential downpour late in the Pitt-North Carolina game.

3. Always take the underdog if it’s getting 45 points or more. Games can be blowouts without being brutal.

Over the long haul, if you stick with those three principles you should be okay – as long as you’re using good judgment, like going over on the Wednesday night Central Michigan-Kent State insanity.

Two of the three are foundations are represented this week, and there’s a fourth tried and true belief that – if you’ve been with this all year – has done you a big-time solid.

We kickoff our trip out west by making a stop at the fourth core belief for 2021. You ALWAYS go against …

10. Kansas at Texas

LINE Texas -31
ATS PICK Texas

Full disclosure – I wouldn’t come near this if it didn’t involve Kansas, but as the man said, you dance with the one that brung ya.

Oklahoma couldn’t get the job done against Kansas against the spread a few weeks ago, but that’s been it. 1-8 ATS – including not covering the +24 in a 35-10 loss to Kansas State last week – to continue an epic heater of a run going back to the beginning of last year.

Texas is a mess.

It completely lost its stuff ever since that fourth down run by Caleb Williams halfway through the loss to Oklahoma. However, as bad as things look, the five teams Texas has lost to – at Arkansas, Oklahoma (in Dallas), Oklahoma State, at Baylor, at Iowa State) are all terrific.

How many times as Kansas lost by more than 31? Three in the last seven games.

Whatever. It’s Kansas, there’s a spread, and we stay on the ride until it stops for good.

So that’s one of the staples. Another foundation pick …

CFN Week 11 Experts Picks: College

9. New Mexico State at Alabama

LINE Alabama -51.5
ATS PICK New Mexico State

Besides the gimmicky aspect of always taking the underdogs with a point spread this high, this actually isn’t a bad call.

Of course New Mexico State will get annihilated – it lost 62-10 to Bama back in early 2019, hence the number – but this version can actually score a little bit.

No, it’s not going to keep up, but all you’re looking for are 10-to-14 points, and the Aggies can do that.

Mercer got 14 on this Tide team back in September. Southern Miss got rolled 63-14. Neither one of those games pushed past the 51.5, and New Mexico State is better.

As always with these picks, think of it this way – you’re walking into the stadium up 51-0. It can be a total wipeout – like 63-14 – and you’re fine.

Keeping with the weekly foundations, the over.

CFN Week 10 Experts Picks: NFL

8. Minnesota at Iowa

LINE 37 Point Total
ATS PICK Over

Last week in the exact same spot I said the exact same thing.

Too many things can go right with a low 37 point total, like one team can get the job done all by itself.

Last week here at the 8: Wisconsin 52, Rutgers 3.

Minnesota scored 41 against Northwestern. Before that it scored 34 against Maryland and put up 31 on Nebraska on the way to hitting the 30-point mark six times so far.

The problem is Iowa.

This team just doesn’t score. Something is wrong if you’re beating Northwestern 17-12, and yes, I demanded you go over on the low point total against Wisconsin. Both teams sort of decided they were done early in the fourth of a 27-7 Badger win.

It’s a point total of 37, and it’ll probably drop.

Before going west, two ACC games.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Rutgers vs Indiana Game Preview


Why Rutgers Will Win

Forgetting the 52-3 loss to Wisconsin last week, the Rutgers defense hasn’t been bad against mediocre offenses.

It struggled – to be nice – against Michigan State, Ohio State, and the Badgers, but it’s been able to hold just about everyone else in check. Indiana’s offense isn’t doing much of anything, getting stuffed for under 200 yards in two of the last three weeks in losses to Ohio State and Michigan.

Worse yet, the IU D has gone bye-bye – it’s last in the Big Ten in scoring defense all while allowing 400 yards or more in five of the last six games.

Rutgers doesn’t do anything all that well offensively, but if it can win the turnover battle, control the field position fight, and run for 150 yards or more, it should be able to slip by.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Indiana Will Win

The Rutgers offense isn’t doing much of anything.

It HAS to run well to have any shot, and that’s not a given considering it failed to get past 111 yards in five of the last eight games.

The passing attack struggled over the last three games and the O as a whole hasn’t hit 250 yards in two of the last three.

As long as Indiana can control the time of possession battle – it hasn’t been bad at controlling the clock – and if the defense can keep being okay at generating third down stops, this should be a low scoring battle that fits what the Hoosiers need.

What’s Going To Happen

Don’t except anything scintillating, but these two are playing at the same level of mediocrity to make this interesting.

Indiana really doesn’t have enough offense to make anything big happen against a Rutgers D that’s banged up, but should generate two takeaways but it won’t be quite enough.

Indiana has just a wee more of an O, but not enough of one to pull away to make this easy.

I’m a professional.

I’ve seen it all, done even more, and I know well enough that when a pick goes the wrong way, you have a short memory, brush it off, and move on.

Last week was something … different.

I was already mad that the over didn’t come in my absolute lock of Wisconsin-Iowa at 36.5 – it stalled at 34 when both teams basically quit with 13 minutes to play and had a TON of chances to score.

Fine. It happens.

So Oregon and Cincinnati didn’t play like teams that really want to make big national statements against bad teams. Okay, no big deal.

That didn’t bother me, but Wyoming and San Jose State was going absolutely nowhere – until the Cowboys scored in the final moments to hit the over on the 41.

And then there was the game that will live in infamy.

Everyone had a part of Clemson and Florida State one way or another.

The under on the 48 was supposed to be a rock, all was fine, and … well, you know what happened.

I literally had to take a walk around the block on that one.

But that’s the deal. This is the life we’ve chosen. The belief systems are sound, you don’t stray from what you know to be right, and that’s why these picks are all correct.

I think.

We deserve it after the Death Valley Disaster.

So how do we get over this? We start with a pick that I know in my heart is probably wrong, but …

Results So Far ATS: 58-42-1

Click on each game for the preview

10. Wake Forest at North Carolina

LINE 77 Point Total
ATS PICK Under

This pick is wrong, but a man is nothing without his principles.

When finalizing the picks in the game previews, I always go with the score before looking at the lines – I don’t want to be influenced one way or the other.

In this, we went with a shootout that goes just over the 77-point total. But if you’ve been with this piece all year, you know that over the long haul, if you do the same thing every time you will be up if …

You ALWAYS go under on a massive point total of 80 or more, and 77 is close enough.

Wake Forest games are wild, North Carolina has thrown a couple of 59 spots on the board, but – and there are no such things as jinxes or curses … I think – we’ve nailed this dead-cold this year when going with the unders on massive totals.

Like the under on Wake Forest-Duke last week, which came at 51 on the 71.5.

As always, if it’s wrong, then you’re paying for the entertainment of a wild game, and enjoy the show.

(Everyone, now take a deep breath, because we’re diving right back in and about to right a horrible, horrible wrong.)

If you have kids around, please don’t let them look at this NSFW pick …

CFN Week 10 Experts Picks: College

9. Clemson at Louisville

LINE 46.5 Point Total
ATS PICK Under

Yeah, this is an all-timer YOU OWE ME, WORLD of a chaser, but like Clemson -4, and if it’s not too soon for you – I still have leftover trays of meats and cheeses sent to me by close friends and acquaintances after the day of mourning – go back in on the point total.

We were right. We were ALL right.

Of course the under was the play last week on Florida State-Clemson.

OF COURSE it was.

It took an all-timer of a final play – brilliantly broken down by Scott and Steve on their Bad Beats segment – for us to lose that.

The pick didn’t come in. It doesn’t mean we were necessarily wrong, and the same belief still holds.

Clemson games are really, really, really low scoring. Take out that putrid late touchdown, and the Tigers scored 23 points or fewer in every FBS game.

The Louisville defense isn’t playing that poorly, and the offense only came up with 13 on NC State. It’s not likely to crank it up in the high 20s here.

While we’re purging all of last week’s pain and suffering by begging for more of it, let’s go with another before moving on to more mature picks for serious people.

Wisconsin, let’s go.

CFN Week 9 Experts Picks: NFL 

8. Wisconsin at Rutgers

LINE 37 Point Total
ATS PICK Over

It’s the SAME thing.

It took something catastrophic to lose the Florida State-Clemson point total, and it took something totally weird to get the Iowa-Wisconsin total wrong.

Just like you always go under on the massive point totals, you always go over on the puny ones. Too many things can go right, and in this, there’s one thing that might really make this work.

Wisconsin could hit the 37 all by itself.

The Badger offense is still awful, and it would be more than happy to get up 23-3 and sit on the ball for the last half hour of the game.

I know, three of the last four Wisconsin games haven’t hit 35, much less 38. I know, the last two Rutgers games made college football sad – and they didn’t get to 35, either.

Michigan State scored 31 on Rutgers. Ohio State got to 52.

Fiiiiiiiiiine, the under is the smart, sensible call considering how amazing the Badger D is, but all you’re asking for is 27-10 to get there, and anything else to go over.

Never let a point total of 37 go to waste.

Next, a point total that shouldn’t be right, and if it is, it’s not your fault …
