NFL Pick’s of the Week 9

I went 6-6 last week, not bad, not good, but not bad. I’m feeling good about this weeks pick, with my lock of the week the Redskins.  Enjoy and don’t forget about the little people when you strike it rich.

‘Skins -3.5 @ Jets: Take the skins in a rout, jets are the worst team in the league (next to the ‘phins”)

Pack @ Chiefs -2.5: Something tells me the Pack are gonna upset, get ready for the real Chiefs.

Cards @ Buc -3.5: When unsure, go with the home team.

Panthers @ Titans -4: Titans are bad, but the Panthers are worse, Carr ain’t doin’ diddly.

49ers @ Falcons -3: No brainer Falcons.

Jag @ Saints -3.5: Saints are marching to a different tune then eaarlier in the season.

Broncos @ Lions -3: Lions at home are tough, they should cover.

Bengals -1 @ Bills: Bengals should torch the Bills, go with Cincy.

Chargers -7 @ Vikings: The Chargers are for real, take San Diego.

Seahawks @ Browns -1: Browns are surging, at home, this is almost a lock.

Pats -5.5 @ Colts: Pats, time for the changing of the guard.

Texans @ Raiders -3: I’ve been saying it all year long, the Raiders are better than their record shows.

‘boys -3 @ Eagles: Cowboys are miles ahead of the Eagles

Ravens @ Steelers -9.5: Steeler tough at home, but 9.5, why not?

Good luck gentlemen and women, remember by 10% of all winnings rule. Other than that, enjoy NFL Sunday.

Week 9 College Picks-Results

top25.jpg1- (6) West Virginia at (25) Rutgers – Obvious Rutgers is not as good as last year. This week’s performance by Rutgers makes South Florida look even worse. 31-3 W. Virginia… got it wrong.
2- (9) USC at (5) Oregon – As good as advertised, both teams played well, but USC was out coached. Worse coaching job ever during the Pete Carrol era. Assistants should be ashamed on the way they coached this game. 24-17 Oregon… got it wrong.
3- (9) Florida vs (20) Georgiapadlock3.jpg – Georgia’s offense was unstoppable. They exposed Florida’s defense and scored at will. Solid performance by the Bulldogs. 42-30 Georgia… got it wrong.
4- Minnesota at (19) Michigan – Just barely covering the spread, Michigan again wins at home. Gophers were no match for the Maze and Blue. 34-10 Michigan… got it wrong.
5- Mississippi at (23) Auburn – I guess it’s true when they say you play up to the level of your opponents. Auburn not very impressive, but did enough to win. 17-3 Auburn… got it wrong.
6- (18) Cal at (7) Arizona State – Cal was looking good early until Longshore decided to throw the ball to the other team. It helps when Arizona State has two quarterbacks throwing to them. 31-20 ASU… got it wrong.
7- (1) Ohio State at (24) Penn State – Easy one to call. Penn State not that good. Buckeyes not getting enough credit. I said it would be easy and it was. 37-17 Ohio State… nailed it!
8- (15) South Carolina at Tennessee – Looks like the Cocks were just a tease! Losing for the second week in a row, they should have beat a Tennessee team that’s not that good. 27-24 Tennessee… nailed it!
9- New Mexico State at (16) Hawaii – Hawaii looking good at home. They beat down a New Mexico State team that, well lets face it, couldn’t beat too many high school teams. 50-13 Hawaii… nailed it!
10-Nebraska
at (17) Texas -Can’t believe Texas actually ended up winning this game. Looked extremely ugly for a while, but I knew Nebraska was due for a solid game. Almost pulled it off. 28-25 Texas… nailed it!

Recap: Got off to a slow start but made up for it at the end. Just barely missed a couple of games. I should have been above .500! 4-6.

Week 9 College Picks

top25.jpg1- (6) West Virginia at (25) Rutgers – Solid win last week, Rutgers isn’t looking to leave the top 25 after just one week. I like Rutgers +6.
2- (9) USC at (5) Oregon – First time in a long time SC is not a favorite against another Pac-10 team. SC will make a statement this game. National Championship on the line? Take USC +3.
3- (9) Florida vs (20) Georgiapadlock3.jpg – My lock of the week! Game is being played in Jacksonville, so I guess it’s sort of a home game for the Gators. I like Florida in a rout. Gators -7.5.
4- Minnesota at (19) Michigan – The Worlverines continue their comeback. Gophers shouldn’t be a problem at home, but look for a bit of a letdown after a couple of solid victories. Take Minnesota +23.
5- Mississippi at (23) Auburn – Should have won last week, but came up short. Nice performance though considering they were on the road against one of the best teams in the country. They should handle business this week. Take the Tigers -18.
6- (18) Cal at (7) Arizona State – I can see it now! Another undefeated team goes down! Call me crazy, but I think Cal wins this game. They can not afford another loss or their season will go down the drain. I like the Bears +3.
7- (1) Ohio State at (24) Penn State – Everyone says that the Buckeyes are overrated, but I don’t see it. Sure they haven’t beaten anyone great, but they keep on rolling every week. Penn State is not good at all. Should be an easy victory after a close start. Take Ohio State -3.5.
8- (15) South Carolina at Tennessee – Coming off a terrible performance last week, the Cocks will continue to sputter. On the road at Tennessee, not going to be easy. I like the Vols -3.
9- New Mexico State at (16) Hawaii – Well, we know it will be a blowout, but by how much is the question. I like that the Warriors are playing at home. Look for a massive game by Colt Brennan. Take Hawaii -29.5.
10-Nebraska
at (17) Texas – You may think I am crazy, but I have a weird feeling about this one. Even though the Longhorns win, Big Red will keep this one close. They are due for a good game. I like Nebraska +20.
