I had another below average week in week 10. Now I am just hoping to break even every week. Let’s see how that goes….
If you missed my picks for the week, they can be found here.
Winners against the spread will be in BOLD.
Bowling Green at Akron(-6.5): HIT! My strategy worked……for this week anyway!
Toledo(-13.5) at Kent State: MISS! Maybe Kent isn’t quite as bad as I thought.
Buffalo at Ohio(-2.5): HIT! The Bulls won by 23! How’s that for bucking the line!
Northern Illinois(-2.5) at Ball State: HIT! This was never close.
Clemson(-22.5) at Wake Forest: MISS! How did the Clemson D give up 20 to these guys??
Memphis(-6.5) at Temple: HIT! The Owls didn’t win, but the defense came through.
Utah State(-6.5) at Wyoming: HIT! I said this all last year, but can you imagine where the Aggies would be with Keeton healthy for an entire year?
Baylor(-5.5) at Oklahoma: HIT! I had a feeling this was going to happen. The Sooners are so bad this year, that even being at home doesn’t help them…..
Louisiana Tech(-4.5) at UAB: HIT! The Bulldogs keep rolling.
UTSA at Rice(-9.5): HIT! Whew! That was close!
SMU at Tulsa(-12.5): HIT! The Mustang D was still bad, but the offense got their points.
Penn State(-5.5) at Indiana: HIT! Wow! Two halves my way already!
Iowa(-2.5) at Minnesota: HIT! The Gophers won by a whopping 36 points. The Iowa favoritism skews a line again….
Wisconsin(-16.5) at Purdue: HIT! Well, it wasn’t way too low, but at least I hit my lock.
Georgia(-10.5) at Kentucky: HIT! Looks like the Bulldogs are headed for Atlanta again despite losing to the Cocks.
Duke(-3.5) at Syracuse: HIT! The Orange are decent, but they aren’t at this level yet.
Georgia Tech(-5.5) at North Carolina State: HIT! I knew the line was missing a digit.
South Alabama at Arkansas State(-2.5): HIT! The Red Wolves are much better than people thought.
Georgia State at Troy(-6.5): HIT! My 1977 quarter never fails!
Louisiana-Monroe at Appalachian State(-3.5): HIT! Sometimes things just go your way. Which has not happened much this year.
Texas A&M at Auburn(-21.5): MISS! This wacky season produces another shocker!
Notre Dame at Arizona State(-2.5): HIT! I expected a close game. This was not.
Connecticut(-4.5) at Army: MISS! Wow. Ugly game for the Huskies.
Tulane at Houston(-17.5): MISS! So much for the Cougars turning it around…..
Florida International at Old Dominion(-4.5): HIT! ODU won, but gave up a ton of points. No surprise there.
West Virginia(-3.5) at Texas: MISS! What got into the Horns?
Michigan(-1.5) at Northwestern: HIT! You know you’re going good when the half on a spread like this goes your way….
Iowa State(-3.5) at Kansas: MISS! This is the largest win in conference play for the Jayhawks since their Orange Bowl season.
UTEP at Western Kentucky(-7.5): MISS! Well, it was my turn to lose a half.
Air Force(-6.5) at UNLV: HIT! UNLV had their season last year. Now it’s back to being covered all the time.
Washington State at Oregon State(-7.5): HIT! Yes, that counts as defense when a Mike Leach team only gives up 32.
Georgia Southern(-11.5) at Texas State: MISS! The Bobcat defense did a pretty good job in this one.
Idaho at San Diego State(-20.5): MISS! I knew I didn’t want to pick that one….
Virginia at Florida State(-18.5): HIT! The game wasn’t in question by halftime, but the Seminoles did struggle enough early on.
Florida Atlantic(-3.5) at North Texas: MISS! Where did that come from??
Marshall(-28.5) at Southern Mississippi: HIT! No, covering a bad team at home at home by more than four touchdowns still doesn’t mean you deserve a bid to the playoff. Sorry Marshall. New Year’s Six yes, playoff no.
Boise State(-18.5) at New Mexico: HIT! If you would have told me Boise would score 60 and not cover, I would have had you committed.
Hawaii at Colorado State(-10.5): HIT! Easy money.
UCLA(-4.5) at Washington: MISS! So far, this is the only pick I would have changed this week.
Louisville(-3.5) at Boston College: HIT! Two out of three locks is a good week.
Kansas State at TCU(-6.5): MISS! Silly me, I was expecting a top ten showdown to be a close game….
Florida(-14.5) at Vanderbilt: MISS! Is Muschamp safe now? Probably.
Alabama(-6.5) at LSU: HIT! Wow, that was close!
Louisiana-Lafayette(-16.5) at New Mexico State: MISS! Sure, now a mediocre team covers a large spread!
Ohio State at Michigan State(-6.5): MISS! The Spartan defense has been below their standards all season. They finally got exposed.
Colorado at Arizona(-14.5): HIT! Surprise, suprise. The Buffs are cover bait again.
Oregon(-9.5) at Utah: HIT! The Utes made a huge mistake early, and never recovered.
San Jose State at Fresno State(EVEN): HIT! More easy money!
This is the week I needed. I went 32-16 for a 67% week! The bad news? I am still way below water on the season at 248-293. I still have a couple of weeks to make .500 manageable by bowl season.
We have a big week in store for you at FantasyCPR! Fantasy basketball is now getting into full swing, so we will have some advice for you there, and have some NFL stuff in the works for you as well. And don’t forget to come back for my picks against the spread and College Football Challenge and College Pick Em picks!
