Honestly, I don’t know if I’m finally stabilizing or not. I think I may be, but just when I’ve thought that in the past I’ve had a terrible week. I’ll say this: I’m due for a big week because I really haven’t had one yet.
NFL Week 10
SEA (-6) @ ARZ
Whew. No loss on Thursday Night Football. That’s a relief…even though Seattle didn’t look all that good.
CLE @ DET (-11)
GB @ CHI (-5.5)
The Bears should win this one – GB looks helpless on offense with Hundley – but I want the points. Feels like a close, low-scoring game.
PIT (-10) @ IND
I know Big Ben struggles on the road but I think this is a case of Bell just crushing the Indy defense. I’ll lay the points.
LAC @ JAX (-4.5)
I think Jacksonville is going to win this game but I’m gonna take the points. Chargers have the weapons to hang within a FG.
NYJ (-2.5) @ TB
CIN @ TEN (-4.5)
I want the points against an offense that has been really sluggish all year. Still think Titans squeeze out a win.
MIN (-1.5) @ WAS
HOU @ LAR (-11)
I hate giving up this many points three times in a single week but I can’t see Savage keeping the Texans in the game.
DAL @ ATL (-3)
Big game for both, Atlanta a little more desperate and should be able to take advantage of Zeke’s suspension.
NYG (-2.5) @ SF
NE (-7.5) @ DEN
Look at what Philly did to the Broncos last week. New England won’t do that on the road but DEN defense can’t save the Osweiler-led offense.
MIA @ CAR (-10)
Ugh. Four double digit favorites picked by me this week. Not great.
Last Week: 7-6
Season Total: 63-68
College Football Week 11
9 Washington (-6) @ Stanford
Indiana (-8) @ Illinois
12 Michigan State @ 13 Ohio State (-17)
Sparty covers the 17, OSU wins. Dantonio has had success against OSU so this should be interesting.
Rutgers @ 14 Penn State (-31)
15 Oklahoma State (-6.5) @ 21 Iowa State
UConn @ 18 Central Florida (-40.5)
23 NC State (-3) @ Boston College
Wolfpack looking to bounce back after a tough loss to Clemson. I think they’ll win by 10.
Arkansas @ 24 LSU (-17)
17 Virginia Tech (-3) @ Georgia Tech
Hokies bounce back after tough loss to the Canes last week. They may win big.
1 Georgia (-2) @ 10 Auburn
Defense should dominate this one but I like UGA’s offense better than Auburn’s, I think they get it done on the road.
Florida State @ 4 Clemson (-15.5)
The Noles are just not good. Clemson has a lot on the line and they’re at home, they’ll pull away in this one.
20 Iowa @ 8 Wisconsin (-12)
I think Wisconsin wins this game but Iowa makes it interesting, keeps it close enough to cover 12.
11 USC (-13) @ Colorado
19 Washington State (-1) @ Utah
2 Alabama (-13.5) @ 16 Mississippi State
This could be a close one but I think Bama wears them out as the game goes along and pulls away in the 4th Q with the power running game.
Purdue @ 25 Northwestern (-3.5)
Tennessee @ Missouri (-12.5)
Mizzou wins but here’s what scares me: Vols D is 3rd in FBS in fewest passing yards allowed per game, only 5 schools have allowed fewer TD passes.
6 TCU @ 5 Oklahoma (-6.5)
Going with the better QB on his home field. Not over complicating this one.
3 Notre Dame (-3.5) @ 7 Miami
Picked against my Canes last week. Not this week. They win it with big plays on offense, creating turnovers on defense.
Last Week: 11-9
Season Total: 87-87
