WEEK 10 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PICKS, 2020: BARRETT SALLEE’S THREE BEST BETS REVEALED
Week 10 College Football Picks: CBS Sports analyst Barrett Sallee shares his three college football best bets every week with SportsLine.
When it comes to college football, there are few who deserve the “expert” tag quite like Barrett Sallee. The CBS Sports writer and analyst hosts shows on SiriusXM College, writes for CBSSports.com and appears regularly on CBS Sports HQ as well as countless radio shows across the nation as a guest.
Sallee debuted with SportsLine in 2017 and has delivered in a BIG way, posting a winning record in his weekly best bets column since that point. He went 59-35-2 (63 percent, plus $2,037) on all his college football picks for SportsLine in 2019, and after sweeping his best bets in Week 9, he enters Week 10 of the 2020 college football season on a sizzling 58-31 streak on his best bets since the start of last year. Anybody who has been following him is WAY UP.
Now, he’s turned his attention to the Week 10 college football schedule and is revealing his three top plays. A parlay on these three picks would return 6-1. We can tell you Sallee is backing Oregon in a 7:30 p.m. ET Pac-12 kickoff. William Hill opened the Ducks at -13, but that line is down to -8.5.
“Oregon is the new Stanford … meaning that it thrives with an old-school, smashmouth style,” Sallee said. “The Ducks just do it out of the spread instead. CJ Verdell is rock solid at running back, the offensive line is monstrous and it is hard to find a reason to think that the Cardinal offense will have success against the Ducks defense.”
Sallee has also found two other college football picks he loves, including a play against a Top 25 team that is being overvalued. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any college football picks.
Here are Barrett Sallee’s picks and write-ups for Week 10 (picks made on Nov. 3):
MICHIGAN @ INDIANA | 11/07 | NOON EST
Everybody seemed to abandon the Michigan ship after the loss to Michigan State, but let’s focus more on Indiana. The Hoosiers are 13th in the Big Ten in yards per play at 4.36, and only have six plays of 20 or more yards — the fewest among Big Ten teams that have played more than one game. As long as Joe Milton and the Wolverines offense doesn’t shoot itself in the foot, the Wolverines should be able to take this by at least a touchdown.
STANFORD @ OREGON | 11/07 | 7:30 PM EST
Oregon is the new Stanford … meaning that it thrives with an old-school, smashmouth style. The Ducks just do it out of the spread instead. CJ Verdell is rock solid at running back, the offensive line is monstrous and it is hard to find a reason to think that the Cardinal offense will have success against the Ducks defense.
VANDERBILT @ MISS. STATE | 11/07 | 3:30 PM EST
Ok … let me get this straight … there’s an expectation that Vandy and Mississippi State — 101st and 98th in the nation in scoring offense, respectively — are going to suddenly find a way to have any chance of combining to score in the 40s? Neither of these teams can put up 20 points against air at this point.
