Pittsburgh (-3) at Tennessee
I just don't see an easy path to points for the Volunteers. They ran through Bowling Green last week, which I'm not sure is something to brag about (more on them later). There's no way they are going to find that kind of success against a loaded Pittsburgh front. And when forced to pass, they'll find even less success, similar to last week when they averaged 6.0 yards per attempt. Pitt is capable on offense under veteran QB Kenny Pickett and emerging star wideout Jordan Addison. They won't need a ton of points to cover, but will get more than enough.
UAB (+24.5) at Georgia
My first of two heavy dogs where I'm hoping the opponent just doesn't get up. We saw how elite the Georgia defense is, but here's to hoping they aren't as interested in the Blazers as they were the Tigers last weekend.
