BlackJack: Betting on Bill Snyder and 2 Other Saturday College Football Games

Sep 21, 2018 12:08 PM EDT

Yet another Saturday is upon us, and that means one thing, boys and girls — college football. All day long. All night long.

We’ve got football wall to wall, and of course, we’re going to bet on it, so we might as well kick some ass while we’re at it, no?

Let’s take a look at some games I have circled on my slate as solid choices to cash those tickets.

WINNERS

Kansas State at West Virginia (-16)

3:30 p.m. ET

Everybody knows I love West Virginia, I like Will Grier as a Heisman candidate, and West Virginia is a dark horse to me as a College Football Playoff team.

But this game? This game is tricky.

Bill Snyder’s teams generally show up as big dogs. The Wildcats like to play a slow, ball-control, run-oriented offense. That will deprive West Virginia of some opportunities to score.

The past four meetings between these teams have been decided by six points or fewer. I think the Mountaineers get the win, but fail to cover.

THE PICK: Kansas State +16
