Dan Karpuc: Pittsburgh -23.5 vs. Georgia Tech
Pittsburgh’s only loss of the season came to Tennessee in overtime back in Week 2, and they’re in a great spot this week. Meanwhile, Georgia Tech is coming off a 27-10 loss at UCF, which came right after a 42-0 home loss to Ole Miss. GT also lost to Clemson, 41-10, in Week 1 and the Yellow Jackets’ only win of the season came against Western Carolina.

Not only that, but Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins and AD Todd Stansbury were both just fired on Sunday and this program is in shambles right now. I expect Pittsburgh to absolutely dominate, especially on the ground. Running back Israel Abanikanda (479 yards, 5.8 YPC, 6 TD) should run all over the Yellow Jackets, who have allowed a ridiculous 239.7 rushing yards per game (124th out of 131 FBS teams) and there’s no reason to trust GT on either side of the ball right now.

Lucy Burdge: Kentucky +6.5 at Ole Miss
Kentucky (3-0) is 2-1 ATS this season and I think they’ll get back to covering against Ole Miss here. Will Levis is positioning himself squarely in the Heisman conversation, as well as the NFL Draft conversation, and I don’t see him letting up now. Kentucky also covered a 6-point spread as the underdog against Florida in Week 1 of this season, so I think they can handle this spread at Ole Miss.

Brad Pinkerton: Wake Forest-Florida State Over 65.5

This is a big number, and for good reason. Wake Forest (3-1 O/U) is averaging 42.3 points per game, while FSU (2-2 O/U) is scoring 34.3 per contest. Wake's only under came on a 66.5 total against VMI in Week 1, a 44-10 victory for Wake without QB Sam Hartman; since then, they're 3-0 O/U with their games averaging a shade under 80 points per contest. Meanwhile, FSU has hit the over in back-to-back games (totals of 57 and 50) and is one blocked extra-point away (vs. LSU) from that likely being three straight overs. I don't expect the 'Noles to slow down Hartman and Co., nor do I think the Wake D will put up much of a fight against Jordan Travis and the FSU offense. The only concern here is Hurricane Ian causing awful conditions, so I'd hold off on making this bet until we have a clearer picture of the forecast for Tallahassee.
