Week #6 Selections Part #4


2016-10-08

Cincinnati at Connecticut    3.5

The Pick: Cincinnati -3.5 – Cin should get this done with ot without QB Moore, but it will be ugly if he does not play

East Carolina at South Florida    -19

The Pick: South Florida -19 – assuming they are focused, an underrated USF should breeze past ECU

TCU at Kansas    29

The Pick: TCU -29 – TCU should cover this as KU has been that bad this year

Iowa at Minnesota    2

The Pick: Minnesota +2 – Iowa might be better on paper, but they are not playing like it and I can not trust them right now, especially on the road

Maryland at Penn State    1

The Pick: Maryland -1 – the Terps keep on keeping on, but the secondary gets a wake up call

Texas at Oklahoma(at Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Tx)    -10.5

The Pick: Texas +10.5 – Oklahoma is too beat up to deal with the Longhorns this week, plus their pass D has actually been worse then the Longhorns maligned unit. Texas wins this one for the 2nd year in a row

Notre Dame at NC State    -1

The Pick: NC State -1 – weather will keep this form being the shootout it should be, I like State to get it done at home with the better running game

LSU at Florida    3    LSU -3    PPD

Auburn at Mississippi State    2.5

The Pick: Auburn -2.5 – Tigers get this done ugly with a better running game than the Bulldogs have

Georgia Tech at Pittsburgh    -6.5

The Pick: Georgia Tech +6.5 – this will be close, but Tech has shown a propensity for making mistakes that Pitt has not to date

Bowling Green at Ohio    -11.5

The Pick: Ohio -11.5 – hard as it is to believe, the Falcons have fallen off a cliff this year, Bobcats should easily get this done

Miami(OH) at Akron    -8.5

The Pick: Miami(Oh) +8.5 – this is a coin flip type of game, I think Akron barely gets the win at home

Toledo at Eastern Michigan    17

The Pick: Eastern Michigan +17 –     no, the newly souped up EMU will not win this, but they will throw a bit of a scare into Toledo

Houston at Navy        17

The Pick: Houston-17 – Navy has been off tilt just enough on both sides of the ball that Houston should get this done comfortably

Iowa State    Oklahoma State    -17

The Pick: Iowa State +17 – Iowa State has enough O to avoid being embarrased, but they can not really keep up with a Oklahoma  State group that is on a roll

Ball State at Central Michigan    -12.5

The Pick: Central Michigan -12.5 – CMU should get back on track as Ball State has not beaten anyone with a pulse and lost to an oddly bad Northern Illinois team

Indiana at Ohio State    -29

The Pick: Indiana +29 – not sure the cover is there as Indy is actually playing an little D, but they are no threat to win this

Purdue at Illinois    -10.5

The Pick: Purdue +10.5 – forget the cover, but the D gets it done for the Illini

Texas State at Georgia State    -10.5

The Pick: Texas State +10.5 – forget about the cover, but GSU should get the win at home in a close one

Charlotte at Florida Atlantic(Sunday)    -14

The Pick: Charlotte +14 – Bad O meets Bad D, Bad O wins barely as FAU finally gets a break

Virgina Tech at North Carolina    -2.5

The Pick: Virginia Tech +2.5 – UNC lack of defense bites them in the butt, as will be unable to out gun Tech

Kent State at Buffalo    1

The Pick: Kent State -1 – this will not be for the faint of heart, but State should get this done v o-challenged Buffalo

Air Force at Wyoming    10.5

The Pick: Wyoming +10.5 –     Cowboys are sneaky good, so the cover is shaky on the road, but I think Air Force should get the win

Army at Duke    -4

The Pick: Army +4 – Duke barely gets it done at home, slowing the Cadets down just enough

BYU at Michigan State    -6

The Pick: BYU +6 – you want to take Sparty at home, but I just can not trust them right now

Tennessee at Texas A&M    -7

The Pick: Tennessee +7 – if this was in Knoxville I might call for the outright win but I think the Vols luck in close games runs out here, as  A&M will not make the mistakes for the Vols to capitalize on

Colorado at USC    -5

The Pick: USC -5 – Colorado is one of the most improved teams in the country, but I do not think they are ready to take out USC in LA just yet, Trojans get this done on talent

Vanderbilt at Kentucky    -3

The Pick: Kentucky +3 – can not get a feel for this one other than it will be ugly not matter what…I will go with Kentucky at home but without much confidence

Hawaii at San Jose State    -3

The Pick: Hawaii +3 – Rainbows keep the mojo going with their newfound running game

Northern Illinois at Western Michigan    -19.5

The Pick: Western Michigan -19.5 – only issue here is does WMU get too bored to cover this

Fresno State at Nevada    -9.5

The Pick: Nevada -9.5 – Nevada should get this done v D-less Bulldogs

Syracuse at Wake Forest    -2.5

The Pick: Syracuse +2.5 – Wake does not have the offence to exploit the shaky Orange D, Syracuse should simply outgun Wake in this one

Marshall at North Texas    10

The Pick: Marshall -10 – you have to like Marshall here, but a leaky D makes this a nervous pick

Southern Mississippi at Texas-San Antonio    16.5

The Pick: Texas-San Antonio +16.5 – you have to like Southern Miss to win this, but the cover on the road is very shaky

Alabama at Arkansas    14

The Pick: Arkansas +14 – if Ark can get the run game going they can throw a real scare into the Tide, but I just can not see them stealing this one. Tide get the closer than you think win

Idaho at Louisiana Monroe    -5

The Pick: Louisiana Monroe -5 – ULM should get a win at home v O-challenged Idaho

Michigan at Rutgers    27.5

The Pick: Michigan -27.5 – Michigan will not screw this up

Texas Tech at Kansas State     -7

The Pick: Texas Tech +7 – Kansas State gets this done v either a gimpy starting QB or a backup, The D is very special and even the offence will have a little fun v the porus Tech defense, but I do not think they have enough to cover this

Georgia at     South Carolina(Sunday)    7.5

The Pick: Georgia -7.5 – bad weather help the Dawgs beat SC into submission with the ground game

Washington at Oregon    8.5

The Pick: Washington -8.5 – Huskies should roll on v a shockingly average Oregon team

Florida International at UTEP    -5

The Pick: Florida International +5 – coin flip game, I like FIU to keep the momentum going v a weak Miner offence

Florida State at Miami(Fl)    -3

The Pick: Miami(Fl) -3 – this is the best team the Canes have seen, and they will struggle some, but should have enough to get this done at home

California at Oregon State    12.5

The Pick: California -12.5 – State does not have any answers for the high octane Cal attack

Arizona at Utah    -9.5

The Pick: Utah -9.5 – Arizona is too beat up to offer much resistance here

Utah State at Colorado State    6

The Pick: Colorado State +6 – CSU will not stink at home two weeks in a row, they win this ugly

UCLA     at Arizona State    10

The Pick: UCLA -10 – this should be the Bruins by any reasonable measure, but can you really trust them?

Washington State at Stanford    -7.5

The Pick: Washington State +7.5 – you want to take Stanford at home, but I just do no trust them to cover this

UNLV    at San Diego State    -14

The Pick: San Diego State -14 – UNLV catches SD State at exactly the wrong time, they will be looking to make a statement after last weeks debacle

Last Week: 28-27-4
Season: 118-129-10  and down 22 units

Enjoy the games everybody!
