Not a load of blow-out favorites this weekend

By Arnie Leshin 
It was only last Saturday that a load of college football team were blow-out favorites. It’s quite the opposite this time.
But first, the two overwhelming picks are No. 1 Georgia 44 points over visiting Kent State, and No. 2 Alabama 41 better than visiting Vanderbilt. There are other double digits choices, but nothing like last week.
Tonight, unranked Coastal Carolina and West Virginia are 3-point favorites at Georgia State and Virginia Tech, respectively. Friday, undefeated Syracuse is favored 9 over Virginia at the Carrier Dome.
On Saturday, unranked Iowa State is picked by 2 points over visiting No. 17 Baylor, at SMU, it’s a 2-point underdog versus TCU, at San Diego State, Toledo is favored by 2, visiting No. 22 Texas is picked by 6 at Texas Tech, at unranked Michigan State, it’s a 2-point underdog to Minnesota, at Washington State, it’s a 7-point underdog against No. 15 Oregon, at California, it’s favored 4 over Arizona, at No. 23 Texas A & M, it’s picked by seven over No. 10 Arkansas, at Marshall, which stunned Notre Dame, it’s favored by 3 at Troy, and at unbeaten Rutgers, Iowa is favored by 3.
At No. 11 Tennessee, it’s favored by 6 over No. 20 Florida. At Northwestern, it’s picked by 5 over Miami of Ohio, at California, it’s the choice by 4 over Arizona, at unranked North Carolina, it’s only favored by 2 versus Notre Dame, at Appalachian State, it’s 8 points better than James Madison, and at New Mexico State, it’s favored by 5 over Hawaii, and at LSU, it’s an overwhelming 30-point pick over New Mexico.
Now go figure this one out. both unranked undefeated Maryland (3-0) and No. 4 Michigan (3-0) has the Wolverines favored by a whooping 17 points at home.
That’s it, more close games expected, except the outcomes could also bring surprises.
