College football Week 10 – Scott Van Pelt’s Winners

After a 4-6-1 week, this might not be the best time to tell you, you’re going to hate what I’m handing out here — like the neighbor who gives out pennies or Circus Peanuts on Halloween. This right here, will test your belly. But let me ask you something — you scared? I didn’t think so. Ten of ’em that are a snapshot into my odd brain.

Season: 42-33-3

Kentucky (-1, 40) at Missouri
Noon ET on SEC Network, Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field, Columbia, Missouri

Van Pelt’s pick: Missouri (+1)

Who we got in the noon window Scotty? Well I’ll tell ya — one is a team who is unbeaten for us in this segment. Had ’em last week in South Cack where they won big and we are on ’em at home in Columbia. Missouri gets the nod against Kentucky.

SVP: 3-0 when picking Missouri this season

No. 17 North Carolina at Virginia
Noon ET on ACC Network, Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, Virginia

Van Pelt’s pick: Virginia (+7)

Now we turn to a team I keep taking who doesn’t cover against a team I keep picking against who just keeps on covering. Why would you take the Wahoo’s again, Van Pelt? Because I am unflappable and I have to.

Marshall (-3, 46.5) at Old Dominion
2 p.m. ET on ESPN+, S.B. Ballard Stadium, Norfolk, Virginia

Van Pelt’s pick: Old Dominion (+3)

Now, as America’s number one Sun Belt tout, it brings me joy to share with you that we have a pair of selections to release. Old Dominion in Norfolk as a small underdog against Marshall.

SVP: 8-0 picking Sun Belt games this season

Georgia State at Southern Miss (-2, 48)
3 p.m. ET on ESPN+, M. M. Roberts Stadium, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Van Pelt’s pick: Georgia State (+2)

We also are on the team who knocked off the Monarchs last week – Georgia State in Hattiesburg against a Southern Miss squad who is playing very well and won 3 in a row. We’re on the Panthers in the Rock.

SVP: 8-0 picking Sun Belt games this season!!!!

No. 15 Penn State (-14, 49) at Indiana
3:30 p.m. on ABC, Memorial Stadium, Bloomington, Indiana

Van Pelt’s pick: Indiana (+14)

Now it starts getting real sketchy – Penn State has punished me anytime I have gone against them and Indiana has lost 5 games in a row. But we are riding with the desperate Hoosiers vs the Nittany Lions in a potential let down spot.

SVP: 4-2 picking Big Ten conference games this season

No. 1 Tennessee at No. 3 Georgia (-8, 67.0)
3:30 p.m. ET, Sanford Stadium, Athens, Georgia

Van Pelt’s pick: Georgia (-8)

Now, this should be fun. Tennessee, you’re awesome. You’re the most fun team to watch in America. You’re # 1. I have picked against you 4 times against the spread this year. Lost them all. This happened with Clemson a few years back. Kept taking points and taking whoopings. I might again. But everyone is taking the points because the line looks like a mistake given your offense. Is it? We’ll see. Athens, sing it with me: Who’s that coming down the track? A mean machine in Red and Black. This stubborn old goat is with the silver britches.

SVP: 7-1 all-time when picking Georgia

South Carolina (-7, 48.5) at Vanderbilt
7:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network, FirstBank Stadium, Nashville, Tennessee

Van Pelt’s pick: Vanderbilt (+7)

From the reigning national champs to a team who has been outscored 179-45 in its last 4 games. Who would do such a thing? Who would back the Commodores? I would. Cuz I’m easy like Sunday morning, baby. Vandy – Anchor Down at home against the Gamecocks.

SVP: 4-6 all-time when picking Vanderbilt (lost last 5)

No. 4 Michigan (-26, 45.5) at Rutgers
7:30 p.m. ET, SHI Stadium, Piscataway, New Jersey

Van Pelt’s pick: Rutgers (+26)

Why don’t you take Rutgers, too while you’re at it. Ok, I will. Didn’t we break up? Yeah, but that was years ago and it feels good backing a team who just got shut out against a top-5 team, right?

SVP: 1-5 all-time when picking Rutgers (outscored by 176 combined points)

No. 5 Clemson (-3.5, 47.5) at Notre Dame
7:30 p.m. ET, Notre Dame Stadium, Notre Dame, Indiana

Van Pelt’s pick: Notre Dame (+3.5)

We’re almost done and we can stand back and look at our work. But a couple more for kicks. Notre Dame won for us last week in Syracuse. Can a team who lost on its home field to Marshall and Stanford really beat Clemson? Don’t have to beat them — just stay within 3 and we’re all laughing.

SVP: 3-0 all-time when picking Notre Dame

No. 10 UCLA (-11, 66) at Arizona State
9:30 p.m. ET, Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe, Arizona

Van Pelt’s pick: Arizona State (+11)

And how ’bout a little night sweat in the desert? Stay up until the wee hours with the Sun Devils. I’m gonna, who’s with me?
