In this series we will take a look at some of the marquee matchups and best bets for the upcoming weekend of College Football, NFL and Soccer.

NCAAF

Texas Showdown
The Second-ranked TCU Horned Frogs have won 11 consecutive games and have averaged 63 points over their past two games. They’ll visit Texas Tech Red Raiders for a Big 12 matchup Saturday and their defense will likely be without run-stuffing senior defensive tackle Davion Pierson (concussion) for the third straight game and they lost standout sophomore cornerback Ranthony Texada (knee) for the season in the 56-37 win against SMU last week. TCU are coming into this contest as a 6.5 points favorite but keep in mind that Texas Tech leads the series 30-24-3 and has won 12 of the past 16 meetings.  This game is featured in our football expert Jesse Schule‘s GAME of the WEEK (NCAAF) – Schule’s Top Rated Week 4 BEST BET.

NFL

Someone’s About To Win
Two teams still looking for their first win will clash at CenturyLink Field Sunday afternoon when the Seattle Seahawks will host the Chicago Bears. The Seahawks won last season’s meeting 34-6 and are favored by 14.5 points. Note that this will be the Seahawks first game of the season on home turf where they’ll play three of their next four, and that safety Kam Chancellor will be back after ending his nearly eight-week holdout.

Someone’s About To Lose
The Atlanta Falcons are coming to Dallas to take on the Cowboys sporting a 2-0 record. So are the Cowboys who are a small dog at the time of this publication. Both teams have impressed on the ball but it’s fair to say that the Cowboys have looked better on the defensive side of the ball allowing just an average of 261.5 yards per game over the first two weeks. They’re gonna have to step it up a notch here to make up for the loss of starting quarterback Tony Romo who’s out with a broken collarbone, although back-up Brandon Weeden completed all seven passes for 73 yards with a 42-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams when he came on last week. This game is featured on Brandon Shively‘s 10* NFL BLOWOUT Game of the Week–Sunday

Soccer

English Premier League Game of the Week – Tottenham vs. Manchester City
Premier League-leading Manchester City are coming off a 4-1 win against Sunderland in the Capital One Cup midweek. They started a very strong team and both expensive summer signings Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne notched a goal each. Tottenham meanwhile lost 2-1 to London-rival Arsenal home at White Hart Lane despite having Christian Eriksen back in the starting line-up for the first time in quite some time. Keep an eye on Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero who has 10 goals in the last seven meetings. A pick on this game is included in soccer expert Mike Lundin‘s Premier League *SUPER SATURDAY* (3 Picks) package, which is your’s for only $45.
