So we’re a little late getting picks up this week, but then, I didn’t like the early games this week anyway. You have to manage your payroll and part of that is not wagering on games you don’t like. I mean…who wants to bet on Illinois and Purdue? No matter what the spread???
Couldn’t continue my undefeated roll, but I did go 2-1-1, and I still maintain I should have been 3-1. I mean, how in the world does Texas not blow Oklahoma out…WITH BRADFORD ON THE SIDELINES HURT??? Arrrrrgh….
So here’s this week’s picks. No frills, just go make money!
Texas A&M (+21.5) at Texas Tech
The Aggies got blown out of the water last week against a really very average Kansas State team (we’re talking 63-14). So I would imagine that an offense that can be as prolific as Texas Tech’s can absolutely blow them away. That’s the theory anyway…Pick: Texas Tech -21.5
Texas (-13) at Missouri
One of my biggest rules is when the general public flocks to a side, you go the other direction. All week I’ve been hearing about how Mizzou can and will win this game. That would make me a little bit nervous if I was wagering on the Tigers this weekend…Pick: Texas -13
Idaho (+15.5) at Nevada
As you all know at this point…I love my Central Michigan Chippewas…and I love my Idaho Vandals. This is a ridiculous line. Pick: Idaho +15.5
Iowa (+1) at Michigan State
Really? What does Iowa have to do to prove themselves to you people?? Iowa wins this by more than a touchdown. Pick: Iowa +1
Last Week: 2-1-1
Season Record 15-11-2
