FREEBIE PLAYS -- (YTD: 151-126 / +36.45 UNITS)
TEMPLE OWLS (+7)
This spread seems way out of whack as there should be a good chance at Temple pulling off the outright upset in this one, but we'll take the TD difference here and watch this one end up being decided by somewhere around 4-points, that is unless the Owls just blow them off their own field altogether, which is also possible. These two teams have played 6 times since 2006 and Penn State has owned the series, going 6-0 ML in that span, but Temple has managed to go 3-0 ATS in the L3 meetings, including last year's cover as the same +7-point dogs, when they lost 14-10. The Owls also come in off a disappointing loss in their last game to Maryland at home, losing 36-27 as the -8 point favorites in that one. Perhaps they were looking ahead to this match-up, but either way, Penn State should have a much tougher task in this game than they had last week, when they blew Navy off the field, 34-7. The Nittany Lions suffered a couple of tough luck losses in their first 2 weeks before that, as they were beaten by Virginia, 17-16, with a donked FG off the uprights, and they were man-handled by Ohio in their season opener, 24-14. Temple has averaged 34 PPG so far to kick off the season, which could be trouble for this Penn State team, as they have only scored as many as 34 points in a game one time this season. The keys to this game are going to revolve around whether or not Temple can get their running game established early, as they come into this one rushing for an average over 175+ YPG on the ground, while Penn State allows an average over 150+ YPG on the ground themselves. Although, the Nittany Lions did also allow Navy to rush for 255 yards in their last game and they still held them to 7 points and defeated them by 27 in the end, so we obviously will need the Temple defense to come up huge here as well. That might come down to whether or not the Penn State passing attack can get the offense running, but they won't have an easy task as the Owls are allowing an average of only 170 YPG against them in the air so far and kept a very similar Maryland passing game to only 190 yards last week, although Temple also lost that game by 9 in the end. The Owls have been playing well during the opening month for the most part in recent years as they come into this meeting on a current 6-1 ATS run during the month and get to face off a Nittany Lions team that has struggled during the month of September in recent seasons, as they have posted a dismal 3-13 ATS in their L16 games played in the month. Penn State is also currently 2-7-1 ATS in their L10 games on their own home field and an equally bad 2-7 ATS in their L9 non-conference games. Temple is the exact opposite there as well, going 4-1 ATS in their L5 games against non-conference foes. Penn State is also a paltry 1-8 ATS in their L9 games played against teams from the Big East Conference and they are 0-4 ATS in games following a 20-point blowout victory. Obviously this isn't the Penn State team that we all grew up with knowing and we expect a game similar to last year's showdown, when the Nittany Lions won by 4 points. Go with the TEMPLE OWLS in today's in-state match-up........
FLORIDA GATORS (-23)
Florida has been absolutely money this season and should come into this match-up ready to blow the doors off their friendly rivals once again today. Florida has quite predictably, owned Kentucky in recent meetings, the two schools have met every season (22 times) since 1990 and the Gators own a perfect 22-0 ML record in that span. Kentucky hasn't even been close in the L4 meetings as the Gators have crushed them by final scores of 48-10 (2011); 48-14 (2010); 41-7 (2009) and 63-5 in 2008. Thus the combined total scoring margin by the Gators in that span: 200-36. And this Gators team is playing with a renewed sense of dominance, absolutely blowing out Tennessee in last week's contest, outscoring the Volunteers 27-6 in the second half en route to an easy box-score victory, 37-20. Driskell made me eat the words in my write-up as I called him a mere game manager, and although he was unspectacular, he did put up a 16-for-20 passing display for 219 yards and 2 TD with 0 INT. Now I expect him to have a real break-out game here today against a Wildcats defense that for the most part had played a little better than expected in the secondary this season and is allowing only 211 YPG in the air against them. They have been eaten up on the ground against the likes of weaker competition like Western Kentucky, Kent State and Louisville, with all 3 schools rushing for an average of 188 YPG against them, with 5 running backs alone rushing for over 75 yards against them, and 3 rushers (2 from Louisville, one from Western Kentucky) gaining over 100+ yards on the ground against them in one game. Not surprisingly they have lost both the Louisville and Western Kentucky games, two games in which they were out-rushed by a combined total of 249 yards by the two schools. Florida might out-gain them by that in today's game alone. Florida's star running back, Gillislee, has been a super-stud out of the backfield this season, rushing for at least 83 yards or more in all 3 games this season, and leading a Florida rushing attack to a 232 YPG average on the ground so far this season. He rushed for 115 yards against the vaunted Volunteers defense last week and had rushed for 148 yards in the season-opener against a weak Bowling Green squad, a defense that is allowing an average of 270+ YPG on the ground so far this season. Florida has scored 41 points or more in each of the L5 meetings and in 14 of the L18 meetings overall between the two schools. Kentucky on the other hand has been held to 10-points or less in 3 of the L4 meetings between them and 4-of-6 as well. Nothing here makes me believe this result will be any different. Again, the Gators have won the L4 meetings between the two schools by a combined score of 200-36, or an average score of 50-9. Either way you slice it, it would be well above this generous 23-point number. Before their loss against the -28-point spread against Kent State earlier this season, the Gators were a perfect 9-0 ATS in previous games where they were favored by a number in the 20's. Kentucky hasn't had a spread that high this season, but they were 0-3 ATS dating back to 2008-2009 on spreads that were in the +20 - +29 range. Kentucky was also beaten by 18 at Louisville last week, and they have lost by 28 or more points in 3 of their L5 on the road dating back to last season. Also, the last time the Gators used the Wildcats as a tune-up game before their bye week was back in 2009, and as -20.5 favorites, the Gators completely dominated the Wildcats, 41-7, although that was back in the Tebow days. But these team is looking just as tough to beat. I will take them laying the points. Take the FLORIDA GATORS to COVER as the big home favorites in this early morning match-up to kick off our Saturday.......
