Weekend Picks

My top play for this weekend is Oklahoma -13 over Texas A&M. Oklahoma is coming off a bye and is rested, with Adrian Peterson at full strength. That will be a problems for A&M, as their defense averages giving up 140 rushing yards per game on the road. On top of that, Oklahoma averages about 190 rushing yards per game at home. A&M's defense is giving up almost 500 yards on the road, and they haven't even played Texas yet, and they are coming off a 56-17 loss at Texas Tech. The last three matchups between these teams at Oklahoma have been 77-0, 31-10, and 51-6, all in Oklahoma's favor. Lay the 13 points at home for Oklahoma.

My other play for the weekend is BYU -4.5 over Wyoming. BYU is 4-1 in their last 5 games, and the loss was at Notre Dame. They are also off back to back wins where they have scored at least 55 points in each game. Wyoming, on the other hand, is on a four game losing streak and have given up 39 and 43 in their last two. BYU is rolling, and should be able to cover in this game on the road.
