Every Thursday during the season, Bill Connelly, Preston Johnson, Doug Kezirian and Phil Steele will provide their top plays across the college football landscape.
Here are their best bets for the second full week of the college football season:
Season ATS records:
Connelly: 10-5-1 (0-3-1 last week)
Kezirian: 17-13 (2-6 last week)
Johnson: 13-12-1 (2-3-1 last week)
Steele: 9-18 (2-3 last week)
Note: Picks from Caesars Sportsbook lines as of Wednesday night.
Texas Longhorns (-10.5) at West Virginia Mountaineers
Connelly: Consider this a test. Tom Herman’s teams have never been particularly good at covering as a solid favorite, but Texas has handled its business nicely this season, scoring at least 36 points in every game, beating Louisiana Tech and Rice with ease and beating an underrated Oklahoma State squad. No missteps yet.
