Little bit of a bounce back last week after a bad week 1 start. Going 2-2 in both the college picks and NFL picks. Looking to really turn it on this week and get on the right side of .500. I know it doesn’t look good now folks but remember I was over 70% with these picks in both the college and the NFL, so a big run is coming with a lot of winners. You will want to be on that train when it takes off and it may be taking off this week. Lets get right to this weeks picks.
GEORGIA TECH -9.5 over Pittsburgh
You can make a lot of money this year betting against Pitt. The Panthers are not very good this year and Georgia Tech is at home and they are a very solid team. 9.5 is a bit high but Pittsburgh is so bad I think GT covers easily.
MARYLAND -4 over UCF
Central Florida has only played 1 game this year due to Hurricanes and games being cancelled and postponed. Maryland had a big win over Texas on the road and a nice easy win over Townson. I think UCF will be a bit rusty here and Maryland will cover at home here.
MIAMI -13 over Toledo
Again we have a team here due to hurricanes that has only played 1 game but unlike UCF, The U is at home and facing a inferior opponent. I like the Canes BIG this week.
PURDUE +10 over Michigan
I have seen Michigan play a few times this year and I am not impressed at all. Them as a 10pt favorite on the road is insane to me. Purdue has done a nice job this year, they hung tight with Louisville. They beat the crap out of Missouri on the road last week. Purdue might not beat Michigan but they will keep it within 10. Take Purdue.
YEAR TO DATE: 3-4
Miami -6 over the NY JETS
The gap in talent between these two squads is too much for the Jets to overcome. The Jets just don’t have the weapons to test a so-so Miami defense. And I think Miami will have their way with the Jets defense.
Tampa Bay -2.5 over MINNESOTA
Sam Bradford isn’t playing so I have no idea how the Vikings will score this week. TB will put up their points and I am not sure the Vikings can keep up. Give me the Bucs here laying a small number on the road.
Pittsburgh -7 over Chicago
The Bears stink,…no I mean they really really stink. I think Bell has a coming out party for the Steelers this week and Pitt wins this like 41-7 or something. Take Pitt.
Dallas -3 over Arizona
Yes that is right I am going with 4 road favorites this week in the NFL picks. Something I hate to do but to me these games just are standing out as easy money. Arizona isn’t any good and I think the Cowboys bounce back after that disaster they had in Denver. A field goal is a low number so take the Cowboys this week.
YEAR TO DATE: 2-5
