Quick Buck Thursday: All Hopped Up On Scooby Snacks

After going 5-0 last week (Plus the Baylor Bonus), I think a few Scooby Snacks were definitely in order. But just like following a bad week, you must look ahead.

Unit Roll - 52 Units

(17) UCF -16.5 @ Temple - 5 Units
A nearly undefeated team against a one win team. I think that says enough. Despite Temple being a solid 6-3 ATS and covering 5 weeks in a row, they haven't faced a team the caliber of UCF. We're talking about teams on the opposite ends of the spectrum statically. Get this one early before that line passes you by.

Kentucky @ Vanderbilt -12.5 - 3 Units
Vandy has dominated the Wildcats the last two years. I don't see that changing this season. Kentucky just isn't a good team right now. Vandy is coming off the big win at Florida and are looking to get bowl eligible. Vandy's offense should have no problem against the Cat defense in this one.

FAU -17 @ Southern Miss - 5 Units
FAU is 11-1 ATS in their last 12 road games. So Miss hasn't won a game all year and has covered only once against terrible Arkansas. I don't think it would matter if Pelini was doing lines at halftime or not in this one. Don't sweat the big line for the three win owls.

TCU @ Kansas State -10.5 - 3 Units
TCU is having a horrible ATS year. At just 2-8, they are almost a bet against team each week. There only conference cover was against OU, which I don't fully understand. K State on the other hand has been handling bad teams really well this season. I like Snyder on his field more times than not.

(4) Stanford -4 @ USC - 1 Unit
Raise your hand if you think Stanford has a let down after last week's win. Yeah me either. Yes, USC has played better since they fired Kiffikins. Yes they've won three in a row. But Stanford's defense is just too good. They are going to grind USC into the ground. USC still doesn't have the depth. Don't let this line go up too high, because USC is capable of almost anything with Crazy Uncle Eddy at the helm.

The Baylor Bears Bonus Over Of The Week
(25) Georgia @ (7) Auburn - Over 62.5
Two teams that really need to score to win. I wouldn't be surprised if this total breaks 80.

The Bob Drake "I need another team for my 21-team teaser" Double Bonus
Troy @ Mississippi - Over 69
I led the old man astray last week. So I'm making up for it with an old favorite. You know about Troy. Ol Miss is over more times than not. Troy doesn't have the defense to stop Ol Miss and I think the inverse is true.
