Top college football predictions for August 27, 2022
One of the top college football picks recommended by the model Saturday: Wyoming (+10 ) stay in the numbers for Sunday’s 4 p.m. game against Illinois. Despite the inconsistent quarterback position, the Cowboys are wrapping up a 7-6 season and winning the Bowl. Sean Chambers and Liev Williams played roughly the same amount, but both moved in the offseason. Wyoming also has a move for former Andrew Peasley from Utah.
Peasley provides dual-threat ability and should complement Titus Swain in the Cowboys’ backcourt. Sven is averaging 92.2 rushing yards per game in his final five games in 2021, even though he was a backup during that time. He and Peasley should relish the Illini defense, rushing for nearly 400 yards against Wisconsin last year. ball all season. Of FBS’s 130 teams, only 14 have averaged less than Battle Illini, who wants his QB transfer kick to start the offense. But former Syracuse quarterback Tommy DeVito, who is 4-9 in his past 13 games, will have to play against a Wyoming defense that ranked 13th last year, trailing only national champion Georgia State one.
The model predicted a low-scoring game that fell into the hands of Wyoming. It lets the Cowboys (+10) drop only for touchdowns, so it covers nearly 60% of the simulation. Check out other teams the model likes here.
