Alabama -15 vs USC

Alabama signed Bryce Young, the top dual-threat quarterback in the nation. USC’s quarterback, Kedon Slovis, is a favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. The Trojans return most of their offense and defense. Bama coach Nick Saban replenishes after every season. 

Mississippi -1 ½ vs Baylor

Ole Miss went 6-2 ATS in their final 9 regular season games. Baylor went 8-2 ATS in their final 10 regular season games. That includes covering against Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship.  

Michigan vs Washington -0

The biggest change at Washington is that Jimmy Lake takes over as head coach. Lake was Washington’s defensive coordinator. Things probably won’t change much because Lake is a Chris Petersen disciple. Things haven’t changed for Michigan, either. Once again, Jim Harbaugh searches for a starting quarterback.

Georgia -18 vs Virginia

Few teams lost as much on both sides of the football as Georgia. UVA must replace star quarterback Bryce Perkins, who threw for 3,538 yards last season.
