Betting on the Stanford Cardinal (1-0 Overall / 0-1 Conference)

Stanford believed it could pull an upset on the road against rival USC last week, but the Cardinal ended up absorbing a 45-20 beatdown instead. Davis Mills, who started in lieu of injured KJ Costello, did what he could and had a subpar performance, tossing 237 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception n 22 of 36 completions. Nevertheless, the good news for Stanford is that Mills isn’t going to be starting for long, as Costello is only expected to be out for just a game after getting hit in the head during Week 1’s 17-7 home win over the Northwestern Wildcats. Hopefully, for the Cardinal, Costello will indeed be given the green light to play. Perhaps, the bigger concern for the Cardinal, at this point,  is their defense that got ripped apart by USC’s passing attack for 377 yards.

Stanford is 5-4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last 10 games.

Betting on the UCF Knights (2-0 Overall / 0-0 Conference)

The Knights still couldn’t fully decide which quarterback they will start for good, but while they remain in that quandary, they have won two games to open the season, each with a different starter under center. After beating the Florida A&M Rattlers in Week 1, 62-0, the Knights took down the Florida Atlantic Owls on the road last Saturday, 48-14. Brandon Wimbush started in Week 1 but sustained an injury that made him sit the Florida Atlantic game started by Dillon Gabriel, who had 245 passing yards and two touchdown passes on 7 for 19 completions. He also finished with 19 rushing yards and a rushing score on 19 carries. Wimbush’s injury doesn’t seem to be serious at all, as head coach Josh Heupel said he could have played the Notre Dame transfer in case of urgency, but Gabriel played so well he might just have earned at least another nod to start. UCF’s pass rush made noise against the Owls, as the Knights recorded five sacks.

UCF is undefeated in its last 10 home games, and is 8-2 ATS in those contests.

Writer’s Prediction

UCF wins, 27-26.
