Game 1: South Florida Bulls (-7.5; -110) at Tulsa Golden Hurricane, 7:00 p.m. EST

The No. 23 USF Bulls travel to Tulsa one week after their starting running back Jordan Cronkite rushed for a school and conference record with 302 yards. He added three touchdowns, two of which went for more than 70 yards. Tulsa comes in at 1-4 on the season and their last loss might have been the straw that broke the camel's back. Going into the fourth quarter, Tulsa led by six points at Houston, but they then proceeded to get outscored 24-6 en route to a 41-26 loss. USF has played down to their competition twice recently, but have still won three of their five games by double-digits this season. Look for the latter on this one.

Game 2: L.A. Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers (Over 7.5;-102/Under 7.5;-116), 8:07 p.m. EST
The 7.5-total in this game might seem way too low but, as we know in the betting game, if it's too good to be true, it usually is. Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw is 4-1 with a 1.40 ERA in seven career starts at Miller Park. Brewers starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez has been solid over his last five starts, tabulating a 2.13 ERA, and he'll hand the ball off to one of MLB's best bullpens at some point around the fifth inning. This points to a low-scoring MLB playoff game tonight.
