Kansas City has a 2-1 lead in the World Series as they play Game 4 in San Francisco on Saturday night.  The Royals will start Jason Vargas in this game.  Vargas is 5-4 with a solid 3.04 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 15 road starts this season.  He pitched well in his only start of this postseason, giving up just 1 run and two hits in 5.3 innings of work.  Vargas faced the Giants back on August 8th, and he gave up just 2 runs in five innings; Kansas City won that game 4-2.  San Francisco is only hitting .248 against left-handed starters this season, and they are hitting just .240 in the playoffs overall.  Kansas City’s bullpen is terrific, especially on the road where they own a fantastic 2.32 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season.  

San Francisco’s Ryan Vogelsong has had a rough postseason, giving up 5 runs and nine hits in 8.7 innings of work.  Vogelsong owns an ugly 5.14 ERA and an awful 5.00 WHIP over his last three starts.  Kansas City is 52-34 on the road this season while averaging 4.4 runs per game.  The Royals are an incredible 10-1 in the playoffs while scoring 4.8 runs per game.  We expect Kansas City’s hot run to continue, so we’ll back them in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night.

Mississippi is every bit as good as their 7-0 record indicates.  The Rebels have exceptional talent on both sides of the ball, and their record is not a shocker at all.  Mississippi’s defense has been outstanding this season.  The Rebels are giving up just 10.6 points per game versus opponents that average 30.5 points per game.  Mississippi allows just 4.2 yards per play versus opponents that average 5.8 yards per play.  LSU has not faced a defense remotely close to Mississippi’s as the Tigers’ opponents are allowing 28 points per game on 5.5 yards per play as a group this season.   

LSU is 6-2 this season, but the Tigers have beat absolutely nothing.  Their two losses have come against Mississippi State and Auburn by a combined score of 75-36.  Mississippi is better than those two teams as the Rebels are actually rated #1 in my power ratings.  LSU will face a strong Mississippi offense that is averaging 35.4 points per game on 6.0 yards per play.  The Tigers have faced a weak slate of offenses that average 27.2 points per game on 5.6 yards per play.  Mississippi is simply the much better team, so we’ll lay the points with the Rebels in this game on Saturday night.

9* Play MISSISSIPPI (-).

Ohio State comes into this game with a solid 5-1 SU and ATS record.  The Buckeyes lost their second game of the season to Virginia Tech, but since that loss, they’ve steamrolled their opponents by a combined score of 224-69.  Ohio State scored 50 points or more in all four of those games.  However, they played four overmatched teams that have terrible defenses.  Ohio State will finally play a competent opponent that also has a fantastic defense.  The Buckeyes have faced a group of defenses that are allowing 27.9 points per game on 5.9 yards per play.  Those same teams also have awful run defenses that allow opponents to average 193.8 yards per game on the ground on 4.7 yards per rush.  Ohio State has cruised in their last four games, but the competition gets a lot tougher this week in Happy Valley.   

Penn State opened the season at 4-0, but they’ve lost their last two games.  The good thing for head coach James Franklin and his Nittany Lions is they come into this game off their bye week.  Penn State was able to regroup and get back to the things that were working well when their season began with four straight wins.  Penn State has played outstanding defense this season.  The Nittany Lions are giving up just 15.2 points per game on 4.5 yards per play versus opponents averaging 24.6 points per game on 5.3 yards per play.  Penn State’s run defense has been tremendous as they give up just 60.8 yards per game on a minuscule 2.0 yards per rush.  Ohio State is taking a huge step-up in defensive class against Penn State in this game as the Buckeyes are facing a Penn State defense that is allowing 12.7 points per game and 1.4 yards per play less per game than the opponents Ohio State has faced this season.  Penn State remembers last year’s 49 point (63-14) loss at Ohio State, and since they’ve had two weeks to prepare, we’ll take the big points with the Nittany Lions in this game on Saturday night.      

10* Play PENN STATE (+).

Michigan has had a tumultuous season.  The Wolverines come into this game at Michigan State with a poor 3-4 record.  However, Michigan got a confidence-building 18-13 win over Penn State in their last game.  Michigan went into their bye week with confidence, and since they’ve had two weeks to prepare for this game, we expect another strong performance by the Wolverines.  Despite the losing record this season, Michigan has played exceptional defense against a tough slate of opposing offenses.  The Wolverines are giving up 21.4 points per game on 4.6 yards per play versus opponents averaging 29.7 points per game on 5.8 yards per play.  Michigan’s run defense has been tremendous as they give up just 93.6 yards per game on a minuscule 2.7 yards per rush.  To compare, Michigan State’s offense has faced rush defenses allowing 180.6 yards per game on 4.5 yards per rush.             

Michigan State is 6-1 on the season, but according to my strength of schedule ratings, the Spartans have played a very weak schedule.  The Spartans’ offense has faced a collection of poor defensive teams that are giving up 32.1 points per game on 6.0 yards per play as a group this season.  Michigan State is taking a huge step-up in defensive class against Michigan in this game.  In fact, the Spartans are facing a Wolverines’ defense that is allowing 10.7 points per game and 1.4 yards per play less per game than the opponents Michigan State has faced this season.  Michigan has a decent enough rushing offense to move the ball as they are averaging 164.1 yards per game on the ground on 4.7 yards per rush.  Michigan State has played four FBS opponents from major conferences this season, and they won just one of those games by more than 14 points.  Michigan is also playing with revenge from last year’s 29-6 loss.  This is a lot of points for a rivalry game, and since Michigan has a strong defense and they are coming in off a week of rest, we’ll take the points with the Wolverines in this game on Saturday afternoon.

North Carolina appears to be playing better football over the last two weeks as the Tar Heels have covered back-to-back games.  However, their game two weeks ago against Notre Dame should be discounted because the Irish were overlooking North Carolina after upsetting Stanford the week before while having a game at Florida State on deck.  Notre Dame still won and scored 50 points in that game.  Last week, North Carolina beat Georgia Tech 48-43 despite allowing 611 yards of total offense.  The Tar Heels scored the game-winning touchdown with just 11 seconds left to play in the game.  North Carolina must now take to the road and face a good Virginia team returning home off a loss.  The Tar Heels have an atrocious defense that is allowing 43.3 points per game on 6.5 yards per play.  North Carolina’s offense appears to be good after scoring 91 points in their last two games, but they are only averaging 5.7 yards per play versus opponents allowing 5.5 yards per play this season. 

Virginia comes into this game off a 20-13 road loss at Duke last Saturday.  That was a misleading final score as the Cavaliers actually had a 23-19 first down edge while out-gaining Duke 465-334.  Virginia went into that game off a bye, and despite losing, they certainly played good enough to win, so it’s an easy loss to overlook.  The Cavaliers have played tremendous defense this season as they are only giving up 22.1 points per game on 4.8 yards per play.  Virginia’s defense has been even better at home where they give up just 18.8 points per game on 4.7 yards per play.  This is a historical rivalry game as the two teams have been playing since 1919, and after last year’s 45-14 loss at North Carolina, the Cavaliers will be quite focused for some payback.  We’ll lay the points with the Cavaliers as they own the superior defense while playing with some strong motivation.

Texas was in a terrible scheduling and situational spot for their home game last week versus Iowa State.  The Longhorns went into that game off their close rivalry loss to Oklahoma the week before, and they simply had nothing left for the Cyclones.  Texas did win 48-45, so pulling out the win is certainly a positive heading into this game at Kansas State.  The Longhorns’ defense suffered the most from the Oklahoma hangover, but we expect a bounce back performance in this game.  Texas has played terrific defense this season despite last week’s poor results.  The Longhorns are allowing 24.6 points per game on 4.5 yards per play to opponents averaging 32.9 points per game on 5.7 yards per play.  Texas also has a superb secondary that permits just 5.6 yards per pass attempt against opponents averaging 7.3 yards per pass attempt.           

Kansas State returns home off an upset win in Oklahoma last week.  The Wildcats won that game 31-30, but they should have lost.  Kansas State lost the first down battle 30-17 and they were out-yarded 533-385.  Oklahoma missed a chip-shot field goal that would have won the game, so Kansas State was extremely fortunate to escape with a win.  The Wildcats went into that game off a bye, and the fact they were out-played is really a negative sign coming into this game.  Kansas State has played a weak slate of opposing defenses this season.  The Wildcats’ opponents are allowing 34.3 points per game on 5.8 yards per play.  Kansas State is taking a big step-up in defensive class against Texas, especially since the Longhorns are giving up 9.7 points per game and 1.3 yards per play less than the defenses the Wildcats have faced.  Texas is a live underdog, so we’ll take the points in this game on Saturday.
