Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Virginia Tech Hokies - VT ML -105
Saturday, 7:30 PM EST

If you want to get a taste of what Pitt will be facing in their next game, this game will give you a sneak preview of the Virginia Tech Hokies and the atmosphere in Blacksburg, Virginia.  If you've never seen the Enter Sandman videos from these home games, I recommend checking them out.  It is one of the tougher places in the country to play as a road team.

As for Notre Dame, they are coming off of arguably their biggest game of the season, which they dropped at home to Cincinnati.  The loss basically eliminated them from playoff contention, which can undoubtedly affect the morale of a program as prestigious to college football as theirs.  Combining the deflated attitude with the difficult road atmosphere, I anticipate the Fighting Irish coming out flat in this game.  I have Virginia Tech taking this one at home.

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars - Titans -4
Sunday, 1:00 PM EST

It has been an interesting week for coach Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars, to say the least.  If you've happened to miss the NFL news, Meyer was caught on video at a bar with a girl dancing around him, just days after their Thursday Night loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.  Meyer chose to stay in Ohio, where the incident occurred, and not fly home with the team, which is an extremely uncommon choice.  As a result of his antics, he's essentially lost the locker room, one that was losing faith in their coach prior to this.

I don't usually like taking road favorites in divisional games but I think there have been too many distractions this week for the Jaguars to come out well-prepared to face the Titans.  Tennessee lost to the then-winless New York Jets last week in overtime but they were missing their top two receivers, A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.  Brown was able to get in a practice this week, so I expect him to return Sunday and only add to what I think will be a mismatch on the field.  Take Tennessee giving the points - the Jaguars are freefalling and I don't expect things to magically get better by game-time Sunday.

Georgia Tech @ Duke: GT -4.5
Saturday, 12:30 PM EST

I just watched Georgia Tech get pummeled by the Pitt Panthers.  And while the Panthers get a bye week to enjoy it, the Yellow Jackets are expected to get right back out there and ignore their wounds this Saturday against Duke.  However, I still believe that Georgia Tech has a very talented offense led by quarterback Jeff Sims.  Also, we all saw how Pitt bounced back after getting exposed as criminally unprepared against WMU, equal to how unprepared GT was against Pitt.  I think GT does the same.

Additionally, I do not think much of Duke.  They just lost to in-state rival, North Carolina, 38-7, after Georgia Tech beat UNC 45-22 the week before.  Georgia Tech also has a close loss to Clemson while Duke really has not beaten anyone decent.  I like GT by a touchdown here even on the road.

West Virginia @ Baylor: Baylor -2.5
Saturday, 12 PM EST

I know West Virginia continues to keep games close, but at what point do they actually have to win one to prove they are the real deal.  Their one Power 5 win is against Virginia Tech, otherwise they have lost to Maryland, Oklahoma, and Texas Tech in their other attempts against Power 5 competition.

Baylor’s only impressive win is against Iowa State, but I like their one loss against Oklahoma State more than either of the Mountaineer losses against Maryland and Texas Tech.  I just think at some point a team needs to show the ability to win these close games and WVU has not yet.  Maybe my Pitt bias is showing, and maybe if WVU was at home I’d shy away from this one, but Baylor should win by at least a field goal at home against WVU.

Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs – Bills Moneyline +130
Sunday, 8:20PM EST

This one is a simple explanation for me.  Week 1 is always crazy.  Teams are figuring themselves out and weaknesses that didn’t get exposed in training camp are exposed in Week 1.  That gives good teams the opportunities to fix them.  So toss out Week 1 and the Bills have proven they are the best team in the AFC.  Coming off two great seasons and having one of the best quarterbacks in the league, they have come out of the gates really hot.

The Bills are tied with the Chiefs for most points scored in the AFC after four weeks with 134, but the Bills have only given up an incredible 44 points.  Denver sits at 49 and then a distant third are the Patriots at 70.  The Bills defense is incredible, and they have an MVP caliber QB.  They should not at this point be underdogs home or away, even against the reigning AFC Champions.
