onthebuzzer.com nfl logo

With Week 8 of the NFL coming up, here’s a chance for you gambling addicts to make a little extra scratch, if you know what I mean.  No promises though, but if you win, I expect 10%.

Browns -3 @ Rams         Take the Browns, the only team worse than the Rams are the Dolphins.

Lions @ Bears -4.5         Take the Lions and the points, the Bears Griese bubble is about to burst.

Colts-6.5 @ Panthers     Panthers are struggling at QB and can’t score, take the Colts with a blowout

Giants -9 @ Dolphins    The only thing keeping this from being a blowout is the fact that the game is in London, still take the Giants, with no Ronnie Brown, ‘phins don’t stand a chance.

Raiders @ Titans -7.5    Raiders and the points, I’ve been saying it all year, Raiders better than record shows AND Vince still injured.

Eagles -1 @ Vikings        Vikings and AP tough at home.  Eagles are no good.

Steelers -3.5 @ Cincy     Take Cincy and the points.  Look out for Cincy to feed off last weeks win. Pitt D hurting.

Bills @ Jets -3                   Ugghhhhhh. Pennington should be able to pull out a win against the heinous Bills.

Jaguars @ Bucs -3.5      With Garard out, Bucs D should be able to focus on run and win handily.

Saints -3 @ Niners          Anyone can beat the Niners, take the Saints in a blowout.

Redskins @ Pats -16      Ready for another blowout by the Pats?  Here it is.

MNF

Pack @ Broncos -3    Broncos offense starting to roll, at home on a Monday night, take the Broncos.

Week 8 College Picks-Results

top25.jpg1- Michigan State at (1) Ohio State – Well, I was right. It was a test for the Buckeyes. Not looking like a number 1 team, they hold off State and barely squeak one out. 24-17 Ohio State… got it wrong.
2- (4) Oklahoma at Iowa State – I told you! 29 points on the road is ridiculous! What I also told you was go ahead and take the Sooners to cover. Sorry. 17-7 Oklahoma… got it wrong.
3- Texas Tech at (13) Missouripadlock3.jpg – I know… I know… I am a genius. Bye, bye top 25 for Tech. Hello blow out for Missouri. Lock of the week coming through again! This is getting too easy. 41-10 Missouri… nailed it!
4- (9) USC at Notre Dame – Dare I say look out! Sanchez looking Dirtier than ever and the Trojans looking like their old selves. I know it was the Irish, but when you lose to Stanford, any blow out win is impressive. I must admit, didn’t think it would be that easy. 38-0 USC… got it wrong.
5- (5) Oregon at Washington – Close for a while, but too bad the Huskies defense  was pathetic! Oregon ran at will and Washington couldn’t stop them with 15 guys on defense. 55-34 Oregon… got it wrong.
6- (23) Auburn at (3) LSU – Once again the Tigers let me down. I knew they would win, but they didn’t quite win by enough. 30-24 LSU… got it wrong.
7- (9) Florida at (14) Kentucky – Gators coming through with another tough SEC game. Tebow and the gang looking good. 45-37 Florida… nailed it!
8- (19) Michigan at Illinois – Don’t call it a comeback! How much do you think Carr and the gang would pay to play Appalachian State again? Looking good on the road.  27-17 Michigan… nailed it!
9- Vanderbilt at (15) South Carolina – Are you kidding me. At home and you only score 6 points!? What was I thinking? They were up against that CRAZY Vanderbilt defense! 17-6 Vanderbilt… got it wrong.
10-Mississippi State
at (6) West Virginia – Just barely covered. I knew it would be close, but not close enough. 38-13 West Virginia… got it wrong.

 Recap:  Hold on, hold on… Before you guys go and call me a genius and a guru for nailing my lock of the week again, let me just say I need to do better than 30%. A man of my caliber should go better than 3-7. Next week is the week baby!!!!!

Week 8 College Picks

top25.jpg1- Michigan State at (1) Ohio State – Could be a bit of a test for the Buckeyes this week, but when all is said and done, look for a blowout at the end. Ohio State needs to prove they deserve to be number 1.  I like Ohio State -19.
2- (4) Oklahoma at Iowa State – I know their good, but are you kidding me? -29 on the road is a lot of points to give. Take them anyway. Sooners -29.
3- (22) Texas Tech at (15) Missouripadlock3.jpg – My lock of the week. Their chance to show they belong, look for Missouri to win big. I think Tech will struggle on the road against a quality opponent. Bye, bye top 25. Take Missouri -3.5.
4- (13) USC at Notre Dame – While they have not been playing their best football, the Irish really have their work cut out for them. Lets see how the new QB does. On the road, SC will win, but I don’t think cover. Take the Irish +17.5.
5- (7) Oregon at Washington – Pac 10 games are tougher than people think. A banged up Ducks team will have their hands full with the Huskies and their sensational rookie QB. I like Washington +13.
6- (18) Auburn at (5) LSU – I know Auburn plays well on the road, but LSU is playing in a can’t lose game. Will they finally cover? Take LSU -10.
7- (14) Florida at (8) Kentucky – Must win for the Gators. Kentucky may be emotionally drained after a triple overtime game. Take Florida -6.5.
8- (24) Michigan at Illinois – The Michigan comeback trail continues. This one’s a pick em! On the road, the more experienced team will come out on top. I like the Worlverines!
9- Vanderbilt at (6) South Carolina – OK. You want to be considered a top 10 team? Start crushing the teams you need to crush. Game Cocks with a lot to prove. I like SC -13.5.
10-Mississippi State
at (9) West Virginia – Something tells me State is going to give West Virginia a run for their money early. Make no mistake, WV will come through at the end. Take State and +24.
