after a semi sort of dismal past week and having succumbed to bout of some virus or another, it’s time again for my weekly college picks. last week was a would of could of type weekend. two of my teams won but didn’t cover the spread. a sad thing to be sure. so i went, 4 for 10 last week making me 40 for 80 over all, with no week 7. back at .500, which is ok and not ok at the same time.
once again, just remember that this is for fun only and not meant for you to use as betting advice. come on, i’m only at 50%. get a clue. leave your wallet in your pocket and nobody gets hurt. the spreads quoted here are what i go by to determine my wins and losses. they may change over the week but no matter.
rock ‘n’ roll.
10/6 arizona at stanford. stanford favored by 8 points. whoever wins this one more or less eliminates the other’s chance at the pac 10 title. however, that being said, strange stuff does happen. this should be a pretty decent game regardless. take stanford. they should win and cover.
10/6 washington at oregon. oregon favored by 28 points. 28 points would be a ton under most circumstances and as the trojans can testify, you can score a bunch yourself and still lose to the ducks. plus, coach lane didn’t have a clue as to how to stop them. neither does coach sark. and the huskies aren’t going to score very many points. count on that. their great preseason expectations have gone the way of the dodo. take the ducks to win and cover. QUACK QUACK!!
10/6 alabama at lsu. bama favored by 6.5 points. the tide is on a roll again. take the tide to win and cover. ROLL TIDE!!
10/6 hawaii at boise st. boise st favored by 22.5 points. the warriors are one of the last remaining teams that have a shot at stopping the broncos and their dream of a BCS big dance game in glendale, az come january. boise st is very tough at home on the blue smurf turf. call me crazy but take those points and hawaii. hawaii covers the spread and hopefully wins.
10/6 nebraska at iowa st. nebraska favored by 19. the cornhuskers seem to be back from the brink of a crappy season. really? well, not this week. take iowa st to cover the spread and maybe even win.
10/6 tcu at utah. tcu favored by 6 points. probably the premiere game of the week. and the last time these two schools meet in the regular season unless they schedule something down the road. be that as it may, the two defensive powers will be fun to watch. and probably the only time this year or any other you’ll hear me say that. take the utes to win and/or cover the spread.
10/6 baylor at oklahoma st. oklahoma st favored by 7 points. baylor one of the surprise teams this season. no matter. take the cowboys to win and cover.
10/6 oregon st at ucla. oregon st favored by 6 points. no love for the beavers with that spread. oregon st is still on track to win the pac 10 because the other schools will knock each other out of the picture and when state beats the ducks in december that will seal the deal. take the beavers to win and cover.
10/6 arkansas at s. carolina. s. carolina favored by 3 points. a toss up. take the old ball coach and give the points. s. carolina wins and covers.
10/6 oklahoma at texas a&m. oklahoma favored by 4 points. almost a toss up. screw it. take a&m to cover the spread and possibly win.
another fine weekend of the best team sport going. don’t get too crazy and enjoy the games while you can. fire up the barbie drop a few cold ones. enjoy.
