BITS keeps on rolling, an unprecedented 14-1 record on its 5 star plays so far this year. We keep it simple here, giving you 3 top 5 star plays for the weekend.
Mississippi State +8.5 vs Alabama : Spread here is way too high here, simply inflated because this is Bama. Remember this is a Crimson Tide team that lost at home to Ole Miss and barely held off Tennessee. If the Bulldogs had a decent kicker, they would have beaten LSU, and with a win vs Bama would quietly move into contention for the SEC West Title. Dak’s career is coming to a close, and we feel a strong finish upcoming. Would not be shocked if the goalposts come down in Starkville on Saturday, but at a minimum the Bulldogs keep it close. It’s their State. We think it ends as a 4 pt game.
Baylor ML vs Oklahoma : Trend this week has seen this spread get smaller and people expecting Baylor to lose without their starting QB. But we think the Bears are pissed off after getting no respect in the Playoff Rankings. They make a statement here vs the Sooners, winning by 17.
Cardinals +3.5 @ Seahawks : This isn’t the same Seahawks 12th man team we saw the past 2 years. Seattle almost lost to Dallas, lost their last home game vs Carolina, and should have lost to the lowly Lions at home. Arizona has a great ballclub, and likely wins this game outright. Get the spread up to 3.5 to be safe, worst case is this game is settled by a late Field Goal.
