He is usually picking just 12 games. However, this will be a sneaky good game. TX St looked pretty good and I know they'll be super motivated to beat UTSA

Got it. Thanks. So we will only have 11 games this week unless someone else cancels. I can't replace them once people have already submitted picks (they might not check back to this thread in time to pick a different game).

The way it looks now, the Tulsa-OSU game probably wouldn't be on the Week 3 slate, but that could change. We are going to have to stay pretty flexible this season.

A whole lot of people are picking all or most of the favorites to cover.

A whole lot of people are picking all or most of the favorites to cover.

Which is interesting, for two reasons. First, the point spreads this week are probably larger than they will be all year. More importantly (as Navy demonstrated so vividly last night) we know less about how teams will perform this year than ever before because of changes in practice routines due to COVID.

As a rule, no matter how high (or low) the point spreads, favorites will cover between 50% and 53% of the time in a typical year. But this year is anything but typical.
