It’s a busy Saturday once again on ESPN’s Streak for the Cash. There’s a total of 27 picks from across the sports world starting with the EPL and concentrating heavily on a full day of college football action.

Here’s the picks I like the most on the board today:

Picks for 10/20

7:45- Chelsea win or draw: Chelsea visits White Hart lane and faces former coach Andre Villas-Boas. There’s motion-picture level redemption storylines here but the simple facts are that Chelsea is atop the table with a 6-1-0 record while Tottenham is off to a 4-2-1 start. Chelsea beat Newcastle United 2-0 who handed the Spurs their only loss of the season 2-1 to open play back on 8/18. It should be a good game, but getting the draw makes Chelsea a very solid pick to start a busy Saturday. Confidence Meter: (out of 10)

12:02- Ohio State wins by 20+: I’m going to try my best to give you two picks per window and my confidence level then you can decide which you want to roll with. OSU is undefeated and suffered a scare last week at Indiana winning by just three points after Indiana scored late. This week they’ll be back at the horseshoe as they host Purdue. After winning two in a row over non-conference opponents, Purdue was 3-1 but has gotten crushed at home by Michigan by 31 and Wisconsin by 24. Ohio State will look to make a a statement at home and should be able to dominate the Boilermakers. Confidence Meter: 4

12:02-Iowa State 2nd half points: Iowa State is ranked this week after hanging right with K-State last week ultimately falling by 6. The week before they knocked off then #15 TCU. The Cyclones are a solid team although they don’t have the fire-power of Oklahoma State. OSU’s defense though has shown soem weakness this year and I think Iowa State should be able to at least cover this prop. Confidence Meter: 5

3:00- Stanford: Click here for my college pick’em picks including this one. Confidence Meter: 6

3:30- Florida: Click here for my college pick’em picks including this one. Confidence Meter: 4

3:35- Texas Tech: Click here for my college pick’em picks including this oneConfidence Meter: 5

5:20- 28 Points or Fewer: This should be a fairly low-scoring game. Both teams allow less than 17 points per game and while both score over 30, I think this will end up a defensive struggle. Pay attention to the first half though and follow me on Twitter @FantasyCPR where I’ll let you know if this pick changes based on the first half. Confidence Meter: 3


7:00- Kansas State: Click here for my college pick’em picks including this one. Confidence Meter: 4

7:03- Any Other Result: In this Middle Tennessee matchup with Mississippi State the Blue Raiders are giving 17 1/2 right now but in this prop it’s MSU by 20+ or AOR. The Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee haven’t played a ranked opponent yest but are 4-2 with a 14 points loss against Louisiana-Monroe and a 6 point loss to McNeese State being their only losses. They’ve beat Memphis, Georgia Tech, and both Florida Atlantic and Florida International. Mississippi State is 6-0 but only two of their wins are by 20-one against Jackson State and one against South Alabama. I think MTU can hang with the Bulldogs a bit and keep this reasonable. Confidence Meter: 3

8:05-80 points or more: Texas and Baylor can score in bunches. Their problem is sometimes they allow points even faster. Baylor averages 48 and allows 42. Texas averages 43 and allows 33. This should have plenty of points and I’d take over even though 80 seems like a ton. Confidence Meter: 5

10:35-Oregon State by double digits: The Beavers are at home as they host the Utah Utes who are still looking for their first conference win. Oregon State still won’e have Sean Mannion, but Cody Vaz showed last week that he can step right in. Utah has QB issues of its own and won’t be able to hang with the Beavers. Confidence Meter: 7
