The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.
The model made some huge calls during Rivalry Week, including nailing Ohio State’s outright upset of Michigan as a 4.5-point underdog. And when it comes to all top-rated picks, the model has been red-hot, entering Championship Week on a blistering 43-23 run. Anybody who has followed it is way, way up.
Now it has simulated every single play 10,000 times and its Championship Week college football picks and predictions are in.
One of the college football Championship Week picks the model is extremely high on: Oklahoma (-7.5) covers in the Big 12 Championship Game against Texas.
The Sooners are looking to avenge their only loss of the season after falling to the Longhorns 48-45 in the Red River Showdown in October. Oklahoma has run the table since then, averaging over 50 points during its six-game winning streak.
The model is calling for more big offensive numbers for the Sooners, including 320 yards through the air and 60 more on the ground from Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray as OU covers in over 60 percent of simulations.
Another one of the Championship Week college football picks the model is recommending: No. 10 Washington (-5) covers against Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game that will be played in Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco on Friday.
These teams come into the matchup with the top defenses in the league and are giving up fewer than 320 yards per game. The model has taken that into consideration and likes the value of the Under (44.5) in almost 60 percent of simulations.
But Washington’s big edge comes at quarterback, with veteran Jake Browning attempting to lead the Huskies to another Pac-12 crown. The model projects over 200 yards of passing for the senior signal caller as the Huskies cover in almost 55 percent of simulations.
The model is also calling for a top contender to go down hard in a game that will shake up the 2018 College Football Playoff picture in a huge way.
