Picking This Week’s Games

Another week, another 6-4 record against the spread.  I was a just couple points away from being 8-2.  Over the last three weeks I am 18-12 (.600) and am 21-18-1 (.538) overall on the year.  So, with that in mind, here are the 10 games this week I think are the best to play against the line, odds courtesy of DocSports:

Oklahoma State (-3) vs. Texas A&M–The trio of Weeden, Hunter and Blackmon fire on all cylinders and the Cowboys take out the Aggies in a fun-filled offensive shootout.

Oklahoma State 45, Texas A&M 35

NC State (+4) vs. Virginia Tech–The Wolfpack are on a roll and they have the Hokies at home.  Another fine game for Russell Wilson and NC State wins outright.

NC State 27, Va. Tech 23

Kentucky (+3) at Mississippi–Even thought the Wildcats were blown out by Florida last week, I still saw some signs of life.  I think they’ll put it all together against a very inconsistent Ole Miss squad.

Kentucky 20, Ole Miss 17

Ohio State (-17) at Illinois–The last go-around for the Zookster against Ohio State gets ugly early.  Terrelle Pyor has another big day and the Buckeyes roll.

Ohio State 38, Illinois 10

Georgia (-4.5) at Colorado–Too many athletes for Colorado to handle and now A.J. Green is back for the Bulldogs.  He gets over 100 yards receiving and Georgia notches a comfortable win.

Georgia 28, Colorado 17

Stanford (+6.5) at Oregon–I think this one will be close and possibly down to the wire.  Oregon might be too fast for the Cardinal, but Stanford is tougher and they have Andrew Luck to hold things together.  The Ducks squeak by thanks to a late LaMichael James scoring run.

Oregon 35, Stanford 31

Florida International (+17) at Pittsburgh–Not many have noticed how tough FIU has been playing against BCS competition these past three weeks.  I think they’ll get into another tough, but ultimately losing, tussle with Pitt.

Pittburgh 27, FIU 17

Auburn (-35) vs. Louisiana-Monroe–This game should look like a track meet for the Auburn offense.  Lots of big runs by Newton, Dyer and McCalebb and the Tigers romp.

Auburn 56, ULM 17

Iowa (-7) vs. Penn State–I haven’t been impressed by the Nittany Lions this year.  There are still some kinks to be worked out on offense and the defense isn’t yet strong enough to carry this team.  This one’s in Iowa and the Hawkeyes take care of business.

Iowa 24, Penn State 14

Alabama vs. Florida UNDER (48 points)–I think Alabama will handle Florida, but I don’t think we’ll see an offensive outburst here.  The Tide will harrass John Brantley all day and Greg McElroy might throw a couple more picks, causing both teams to play it safe.

Alabama 20, Florida 12
