Upset picks: 1-1
Last week was also a good week. I had 5 wins, 3 losses, and 2 pushes, leaving me with a 16-12-2 record thus far. This week, I have more solid picks for you to help increase your bankroll.
Florida State (-16 ½) – Maryland
Welcome to the Big Time, Maryland. Enjoy your stay while it lasts. Your run in the Top 25 is about to end in hilarious fashion.
Florida State 49, Maryland 20
Georgia Tech – Miami (FL) (-6 ½)
Miami, if they didn't play such a weak schedule, would go into the ACC Title Game with at least 2 losses. They'll be undefeated when they play either Clemson or Florida State.
Miami 31, Georgia Tech 21
Upset Pick #1: Arkansas (+12 ½) – Florida
Florida is overrated. Meanwhile, I like what Bret Bielema is doing with Arkansas. Arkansas is coming back. Look for them to bully their way to a victory in Gainesville
Arkansas 24, Florida 21
Upset Pick #2: Ohio State – Northwestern (+7)
This game scares me as a Buckeye fan. Ohio State has no pass D. Northwestern has, outside of Michigan, the best passing attack in the Big Ten. They also have a D that can keep up with Braxton Miller if needed. I think this game has all the makings of a major upset.
Northwestern 40, Ohio State 34
Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week: Cincinnati (-12) – South Florida
God, USF is, in the words of Charles Barkley, turrible. Horrible line. Bet everything on this game.
Cincinnati 41, USF 14
Jacksonville (+12 ½) – St. Louis
Justin Blackmon is back from suspension. Look for Jacksonville to stun the NFL by actually covering for once against a God-awful St. Louis team. Bernie Kosar was right about their WRs.
St. Louis 28, Jacksonville 21
Seattle (-2 ½) – Indianapolis
The Browns look like geniuses now with the Trent Richardson pick. However, don't tell that to the Colts; they're 2-0 since that trade, and about to go 2-1.
Seattle 22, Indianapolis 16
New Orleans (pk) – Chicago
New Orleans can ball. I told you they were good defensively.
New Orleans 27, Chicago 20
Upset Pick: Detroit (+8) – Green Bay
Look for the Detroit pass rush to lead the way for Detroit for at least a cover.
Green Bay 24, Detroit 23
Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week: Philadelphia – New York Giants (pk)
Teams have figured out Chip Kelly. His success in the NFL lasted all of two weeks. The Giants are going to show the hapless Eagles how to play defense, winning this game running away.
New York Football Giants 34, Philadelphia 17
