Okay, usually I’m pretty good at this…but this season I’ve been terrible. It’s still early enough to turn things around but I’ve got a lot of work to do.
NFL Week 7
KC (-3) @ OAK
Welp. This is fitting. Taking a loss in game one. Not great.
TB @ BUF (-3)
I thought Tampa was going to be good this year. Maybe not. I’m going with the best defense in the league at home here.
CAR (-3) @ CHI
TEN (-6) @ CLE
NO (-4) @ GB
Kind of surprising the Packers, without Rodgers, aren’t bigger underdogs. I’m taking the better QB, but am nervous about the Pack at home.
JAX (-3.5) @ IND
ARI @ LAR (-3.5)
Hate this game. Rams should win it but Arizona looked better with Adrian Peterson last week so I’ll take the extra half point and run.
NYJ @ MIA (-3)
BAL @ MIN (-5.5)
I think the Vikes win this game but I’m taking the points and running with it.
DAL (-6) @ SF
SEA (-4.5) @ NYG
Giants snuck up on the Broncos last week so this makes me a bit nervous, especially with Seattle on the road. Ugh.
CIN @ PIT (-5.5)
Steelers have been all over the place lately and I just want the points in this one. PIT should win.
DEN @ LAC (-1.5)
I have no idea what’s happening here. None. I’m flipping a coin. Broncos.
ATL @ NE (-3)
Patriots defense has been really bad but I’m always going to take Pats at home giving up just 3 points.
WAS @ PHI (-5)
Another one I don’t like. Maybe I just don’t have a grasp on the league this year, I don’t know. LOL.
Last Week: 2-10
Season Total: 40-49
CFB Week 8
25 Memphis @ Houston (-1)
Whew. Starting with an early win. That doesn’t suck.
Syracuse @ 8 Miami (-17)
Miami will defend their turf and win but I think it’ll be closer than 17 points. I’m thinking it’s a 10-point win for my guys.
Maryland @ 5 Wisconsin (-24)
Wisconsin wins easy. I just want the 24 points.
10 Oklahoma State (-7) @ Texas
Game scares me. Texas played well against Oklahoma last game but I’m expecting a slight let down.
Tennessee @ 1 Alabama (-36)
Tennessee is bad but if they can’t stay within 36 of Alabama then Butch Jones should be fired by Sunday.
North Carolina @ 14 Virginia Tech (-21)
Indiana @ 18 Michigan State (-6.5)
20 UCF (-7.5) @ Navy
I’m taking the Middies at home. A good running team that plays well at home getting 7.5? Yep. I’ll take it.
9 Oklahoma (-14.5) @ Kansas State
I always take ranked teams, especially Top 10 teams, against K-State. Always.
16 South Florida (-12) @ Tulane
24 LSU (-7) @ Ole Miss
I was tempted to take the points here but Ole Miss has gotten smoked by every good team they’ve played. Can’t do it.
19 Michigan @ 2 Penn State (-9.5)
Taking the points. Penn State wins but I think it’ll be a TD game.
11 USC @ Notre Dame (-3)
Brian Kelly is a .500 coach against ranked teams. USC has the better QB. I’m taking the Trojans.
21 Auburn -15.5) @ Arkansas
Kansas @ 4 TCU (-39)
23 West Virginia (-9.5) @ Baylor
Colorado @ 15 Washington State (-10)
Last Week: 10-12
Season Total: 60-58
