Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Indiana Hoosiers College Football Pick from Doc’s Sports: October 15th 2016

NEBRASKA VS. INDIANA FOOTBALLNebraska Cornhuskers vs. Indiana Hoosiers
College Football Pick: Indiana +5 (October 15th 2016)

Doc’s Sports Saturday NCAA Free Play. #148 Take Indiana Hoosiers over Nebraska Cornhuskers (Saturday 3:30 pm ABC) Nebraska enters this game at 5-0 but they have yet to record a quality victory on the season. Their win against Oregon looks less and less impressive as the Ducks are in freefall and they had Nebraska on the ropes before they started going for two on each and every score. This will be the toughest game they have played thus far as Indiana stayed with Ohio State and easily covered that spread. The Hoosiers have yet to get run off the field in any of their five games and I expect them to take this game down to the wire as well. Nebraska and Coach Reilly have never been able to handle prosperity and they always seem to lose games that they should not. Indiana has covered the spread in five straight Big 10 games. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports weekend football card featuring top plays on Saturday and Sunday. Our NFL Top Play was a winner last Sunday so sign-up now let Doc provide you another winning weekend.

Matt Fargo betting the Eastern Michigan Eagles +18 over the Toledo Rockets on October 8th 2016

TOLEDO VS. EASTERN MICHIGAN BETTINGToledo Rockets vs. Eastern Michigan Eagles
Point Spread Pick: Eastern Michigan +18 points (October 8th 2016)

How much better has Eastern Michigan gotten? Their four wins this season is one more than the last two years combined so it has been a huge step up. Last season, the Eagles got double-digits at home only once and that was against Western Michigan. Here they are getting only a field goal less but are far superior this season. Eastern Michigan is allowing two touchdowns less on defense while averaging 10 points more on offense than last season. Toledo is coming off its first loss of the season as it fell to BYU by two points on a last season field goal. That was a brutal loss and one that will be hard to recover from so asking them to win this game by more than two touchdowns is asking a lot. Toledo got crushed on the ground and that is the strength of the Eastern Michigan offense this season as it is averaging 189 ypg on 4.5 ypc and those numbers are close to what the Rockets are allowing overall on the season. It can be easy to look past Eastern Michigan because it has been so bad for so long and do not be surprised to see that here with a home game against rival Bowling Green next week. The Eagles fall into a great situation based on the linesmakers making this number too high. We play on home underdogs of 14.5 or more points after two or more consecutive straight up wins, with a winning record on the season playing another winning team. This situation is 35-9 ATS (79.5 percent) since 1992. Play (354) Eastern Michigan Eagles

Week 5 NFL Pick: Stephen Nover betting the Bears +4.5 over the Colts on October 9th 2016

| October 7, 2016

BEARS VS. COLTS WEEK 5Chicago Bears vs. Indianapolis Colts
Week 5 NFL Pick: Bears +4.5 points (October 9th 2016)

We have two 1-3 struggling teams here. So usually the school of thought is take the points especially when the line is higher than the key number of four. But there is a lot more to that simple premise in this matchup as to why the Bears should cover this number – if not upset the Colts straight-up.

The Colts’ major edges are Andrew Luck and home-field. It’s a circle-the-wagons game for the Colts, too, because their next two contests are on the road. The Bears’ defense has multiple injuries with four of their better defenders out. So now the Bears rank among the bottom in terms of defensive talent.

That’s the major negatives for the Bears. However, there are just as many negatives for the Colts plus their are key situational elements working against them.

Indy is not playing well. Morale is teetering with players calling out the general manager. The team just cut two defensive starters a month into the season perhaps displaying panic. Luck, once again, isn’t getting adequate protection. He’s on pace to be sacked 60 times – if he lasts the season. The Colts have failed to adequately protect their franchise quarterback. They started three rookies on the offensive line in last week’s loss to Jacksonville. The Colts also lack a reliable possession wide receiver to pair with T.Y. Hilton with Donte Montcrief out.

Speaking of that Jacksonville defeat: It occurred in London. The Colts didn’t get a bye this week. So jet lag becomes a factor. Most people have to deal with it when flying back from being overseas. I know I have and it usually takes me at least a week before I fully regain my senses. This also is a division sandwich spot for the Colts as they just got through with the Jaguars and have the Texans on deck followed by the Titans.

It’s a necessary two-way street when backing a ‘dog. You want to fade the favorite, but also believe in the ‘dog. The Bears are well-coached defensively and their offense and team chemistry is better with Brian Hoyer at quarterback rather than Mr. Poor Body Language Jay Cutler. The statistics prove this: Hoyer has a 103 passer rating in two starts compared to Cutler’s 75.7. Luck’s quarterback rating, by comparison, is 91.1.

This isn’t to say Hoyer can compare to Luck because he doesn’t. But Hoyer is a savvy veteran, who can be effective with weapons. He has them with Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, red zone monster Zach Miller and Jordan Howard, who is providing the Bears with their best running of the season.

Chicago’s confidence is up after a much-needed victory against the Lions last Sunday. The Bears’ defense held the Lions without a touchdown. Matthew Stafford had thrown multiple touchdown passes in eight of his last nine games prior to that game against the Bears. The Lions, by the way, beat the Colts in Indianapolis, 39-35, opening week.

The Bears should be able to get their points against a vulnerable Colts defense that is depth-shy in the secondary and weak at linebacker. One of the reasons why the Colts are below par at linebacker is because they didn’t resign Jerrell Freeman, one of their better defenders. Freeman is now a key for the Bears defense and familiar with the Colts where he played for the previous four seasons.

Chicago also is experienced playing in a dome setting having met the Lions every year at Ford Field.
