2019 – Week 4 Picks

Allan took the win for week 3 with a solid showing (11-4 SU, 8-6-1 ATS).  Travis is still holding on to the overall lead, but that is being chipped away.  He had an ok week 3 (9-6 SU, 9-5-1 ATS), and Kyle was right there with him (8-7 SU, 9-5-1 ATS).  Now we are going to start getting into conference play.  Let's see if all three can keep up their stellar picks.

Week 4 finally has some big matchups.  This season has been thin on quality matchups so far.  Hopefully that's just an anomaly and not a sign of how teams are going to schedule going forward.   There are ranked matchups in the Big 10 and SEC this week, along with a big non-conference showdown between Notre Dame and Georgia.  Last year Georgia was mad that Notre Dame made the Playoff over them, despite the fact Notre Dame was undefeated and Georgia had 2 losses.  At some point wins have to mean something, and just because the eye test says you might be a better team doesn't mean you deserve to get in over a team 2 losses clear of you.  Then most people think that Notre Dame's performance in the Playoff meant they definitely didn't deserve it.  You might need to be reminded that Notre Dame kept the score closer against Clemson than Alabama.  The Irish only lost to them by 27, while Alabama lost to Clemson by 28.  No one was saying that result meant Alabama should have been left out of the Playoff.

So we will see if Georgia can settle that "score" and get their revenge.  We will see if Michigan's struggle against Army was just a weird triple option matchup, or if it's a sign of things to come.  Auburn goes on the road against Texas A&M.  That is a tough place to play for a team, especially a team with a true freshman quarterback.  Maybe Auburn will show us it's one of those years where they zag when everyone is expecting them to zig.  Cal goes on the road to Ole Miss.  Cal is ranked, but they have one of those "body clock" games.  Lots of other good matchups on the schedule.  Let's gooooooooo!
