The sure-thing picks last week were 4-0, everybody! That’s a 14-1 parlay bet, y’know. Overall I was 8-6-1 for a season total of 19-14-2. Not great, not terrible. 54%. Good enough for a pro, I guess, but NOT good enough for ME.
Yeah, ME! The guy who adorns his degenerate gambling picks with a photo of William Schallert since “The Trouble With Tribbles” is on.
Whatever. Ten total picks this week, so let’s win some money. Top picks, once again, are in italics.
Duke +3 against Virginia Tech
Penn State -6 over Maryland
Boston College + 6 1/2 against Wake Forest (in a pick where I question my sanity, but I’ll keep telling myself how ANGRY BC remains after that embarrassing upset a couple of weeks ago. And then there were the tribbles in their chicken sandwich and coffee. As near as I can tell, they’re born pregnant. All you have to do is stop feeding them.)
Iowa State – 2 1/2 over Baylor
Fresno State – 17 1/2 over New Mexico State
Utah State -24 over Colorado State
Colts – 6 1/2 over the Raiders
Chiefs – 6 1/2 over the Lions
Patriots -7 over the Bills
Rams -10 over the Buccaneers
So there you go. And I have never questioned the orders or the intelligence of any representative of the Federation. Until now.
