Compu-Picks 2011 Analysis: Early Review of Preseason Over/Under Picks

This year, I published a number of Compu-Picks preview articles, which among other things included record projections for each team, and picks against over/under win totals posted by three different sources (Hilton, TheGreek, 5Dimes). While it is still quite early in the season, we've still seen enough results to have a decent idea about at least some of the picks. With that in mind, I've put together tables displaying the picks where it seems pretty clear which side of the over/under line the team will end up at (I'm still holding out hope for LSU under, but unless West Virginia upsets them I think that ship has sailed). Of course, not all of these early results will hold, but it seems pretty likely that most will. So without further ado, here are the results so far. As always, higher confidence numbers get higher weight in the overall totals:

Notre Dame 8.5 Over 1 0 1
Oregon State 6.5 Under 2 2 0
Utah 7.5 Over 1 1 0

Louisiana State 9.5 Under 3 0 3
Mississippi State 7.5 Under 1 1 0
