Wheeler’s Friday Football Frenzy and Picks: Still Kind of Bad at This

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
