No fancy words this week. No pep talks. If you’ve been visiting this space over the last couple weeks, you’re surely tired of my chit chat. What matters is the money, and I’ve been in a slump.

This week, we’re getting back to basics and hopping aboard the Underthink Express. Sometimes, the best weeks are the ones you don’t think too much about. It’s a theory, anyway.

Let’s just go 3-0…

Purdue -18 vs. Northwestern

12:00 pm ET (FS1)

Why not just bet against Northwestern (again)? The Cats are really bad in all phases of the game and Purdue is still playing for the Big Ten West crown. I don’t think it needs to be any more complicated than that.

Bet Purdue -18

Tennessee -21.5 @ South Carolina

7:00 pm ET (ESPN)

I had a theory last week that Tennessee would be licking its wounds after getting drilled by Georgia.

Sometimes the easiest answer is the right one. We’re riding the Underthink Express the rest of the way with the Vols. Clearly, they’re in prime position to make it back to the playoff and it was apparently against Missouri that Josh Heupel will be playing for style points from here on out.

Bet Tennessee -21.5

Oklahoma State +7.5 @ Oklahoma

7:30 pm ET (ABC)

As I said in our Week 12 preview podcast, this game has 38-35 written all over it. Furthermore, it begs the question: Do you really trust Oklahoma to cover a 7.5 point spread against a hated rival?

Bet Oklahoma State +7.5

Last Week: 1-2

Season Record: 15-17-2
