HARRY’S MONEY LINE PARLAY OF THE WEEK
-1900 SMU VS EAST CAROLINA
-1600 AIR FORCE VS NEW MEXICO
-875 SAN DIEGO ST VS NEVADA
-600 SAINTS VS FALCONS
-220 BUCCANEERS VS CARDINALS
The Mustangs are coming off of their first loss of the season at Memphis and are eager to get back in the win column. Xavier Jones leads the SMU rushing attack (17 total TDs) and they have one of the most potent offenses in the country. East Carolina gave it their all last week in a 3-point loss to No. 17 Cincinnati and won’t have much left in the tank to go toe-to-toe with this Mustang squad. SMU cruises in this one, 52-17.
Air Force had a major let down offensively last week so I don’t expect that to happen again versus the Lobos of New Mexico. The Lobos just lost by 21 to Nevada and the Wolfpack have one of the worst offenses in the league. The Falcons (4-1 in MW West division) will run all over New Mexico and stay within striking distance of the division leader Boise St (4-0) in a comfortable win. Prediction 38-18 Falcons.
San Diego State is 7-1 and has not given up more than 23 points all year. Now they are playing a soft Nevada Wolfpack team that struggles on offense and has scored just 34 points in its last three games combined. I don’t see the Aztecs having to work hard in this one as they will use their solid rushing attack and win easily. Prediction, 31-16.
The Saints are rolling at 7-1 and are coming off a win in which QB Drew Brees had 373 yards passing and three touchdowns while RB Latavius Murray had a banner game going for 157 total yards versus Arizona. The Falcons stand at 1-7 and have an awful offense that New Orleans will rip through. Prediction, Saints win 31-13.
Tampa Bay is 5th in the league in passing and WR Mike Evans has been catching everything in sight for head coach Bruce Arians and Arizona is playing their third early east coast game in four weeks. The traveling will take its toll on the Cardinals as Tampa wins their first game at home. Prediction, 28-20.
