Watching an unemotional baseball playoff right now (Cards ? Nats? I don’t care…. waiting for the Yankees to take on the – gulp – Astros tomorrow. Tho Sanchez is pitching a real beaut…) so I ran some numbers and came up with some mostly college football picks and one pro pick. Last week I did well with college and crap with pro, so I’m feelin’ the burn. Worked out to 6-6 for the week, season totals 28-27-2. May as well flip a coin.
EXCEPT FOR THIS WEEK, WHEN I WILL GO 12-0!!!!!
Let’s start with taking Texas +10 1/2 at home against Oklahoma, in what ought to be a decent game.
Central Michigan by 10 over New Mexico State
Missouri by 12 over Ole Miss
Mississippi State by 6 1/2 over Tennessee
UNLV +15 against Vanderbilt
Wisconsin by 10 1/2 over Michigan State
Texas A&M +17 against Alabama (I think they’ll lose but beat the spread)
Florida Atlantic by 11 1/2 over Mid Tennessee State
UAB by 12 over UTSA
Notre Dame by 10 1/2 over USC
Wyoming +4 against SDSU in a game I think they can win outright
And my sole NFL pick – the Seahawks by 1 1/2 over the Browns.
If I had to make a parlay play, I guess I’d group Central Michigan, Missouri, UAB, Notre Dame, Wyoming and the Seahawks. Those are probably the picks I feel best about.
Although I’m still down with a cold and don’t feel great altogether….
