Les Miles was one of the biggest names in college football before he was fired by LSU mid-way through the 2016 season. But it turns out that he has a knack for something outside of coaching.

Miles is really good at picking winners in college football games. To be fair, it still has to do with his former profession. And the former coach clearly has an eye for the game. But to get 26 out of 36 picks right is pretty impressive. 

Miles may not be picking these games ​against the spread, but he's still doing a phenomenal job this season. This week he's going with No. 7 LSU at Arkansas, No. 1 Alabama at home against No. 16 Mississippi St., No. 18 Michigan State in a Big Ten matchup against No. 10 Ohio State, and No. 2 Clemson taking on No. 17 Boston College.

While Michigan State is getting four points against a tough Ohio State team, the other three are all favorites by more than 10 points -- Alabama (-22), Clemson (-19) and LSU (-13).

If Miles has another good week of picks, the former head coach can help make bettors some money again this Saturday.
