Slick’s Picks Week 10
A Guest Blog By Fanspeak Contributing Writer Matt
Ok, so 6-4 is not great, but we won, right!? Lets review…
Iowa/Nebraska – easy winners – would have bet the house, and hopefully you did – even my score predictions were SCARY close!
Ole Miss/USC – big misses – Auburn and Oregon are very good on offense, very good.
AF and TEMPLE – hey, we got the win – late covers, but it counts
Michigan – I did that to prove a point, and im going to keep riding them until they cover again. so vegas said to me, TAKE THAT, right back!
Under in BC vs Clem game – really – does it get any easier? 26 points? did i mention i LOVE over/unders?
Over in the ND vs Tulsa game – ok, wait, dane crist goes down in the first qtr and we still almost hit the over? but youre right, a loss is a loss, although lets make this clear, this game DEF goes over with crist for all 4 qtrs, easily.
WEEK 10 PICKS…. UM, did i mention i LOVE over/unders? see below…Im feeling “trendy” this week…
Take UNDER 48.5 in ARMY v AIR FORCE (sticking with the flyover theme, except this time, i have another branch with me)
Take OVER 48.5 in PENN ST v NORTHWESTERN (penn state thinks they can score now that they layed 41 on michigan and northwestern knows they can, lots of points here)
Take UNDER 48 in BOSTON COLLEGE v WAKE FOREST (hey, its BC, they cant score)
Take OVER 59 in ARKANSAS v SOUTH CAROLINA (ryan mallets throws for 5 tds and here in Charlotte, USC is not southern cal, but they will score too… shootout time).
Take OVER 62.5 in NAVY v EAST CAROLINA (i dont know why, but i am on my armed forces high this week – seems like a lot of points, right? dont worry, both teams are in the mid-uppers 30s)
TAKE UNDER 45.5 in TEXAS v KANSAS ST (texas has packed it in, and no guarantee they will even be bowl eligible by seasons end and in manhattan, the fun is over…low scoring and boring)
FIIIIIIINNNEEEE… you want a PICK that doesnt include an OVER/UNDER. Ok ok ok ok …. I GOT IT…
TAKE MARYLAND +8 at MIAMI. (what?! are you crazy? listen, i said im feeling trendy! the line has moved from 12.5 to 8 in a few short days…and although the general public will load up on miami, as vegas is fully expecting, the big money will be won on the TERPS, trust me – would i lie to you?)
TAKE MICHIGAN -3 v ILLINOIS (the world has lost its mind. michigan couldnt stop my 9-month old son from crawling across the room. why are they favored against ANYONE? i dont care, im riding this one out. you want to make them a favorite again, ill show you vegas…)
