Here’s what I often do: Take a 12 oz glass and throw 3-4 ice cubes in it. Then, I add about 2-3 finger widths of Jack Daniels or Bulleit Rye. Then maybe a teaspoon of lemon juice, and top it off with some fresh brewed iced tea. (Then drink, obviously).
After my performance in picking games last week, I might need to do this repeatedly. Good thing I get those giganto bottles of JD and Bulleit at Costco.
Started out well, felt great – got my first 3 picks… and then the remaining 7 went sour. Bah. Season totals are barely above even, at 22-21-2.
So this week, it will ALL TURN AROUND and I can drink my whiskey concoctions in total bliss. My stomach will thank me.
Boston College +6 against Louisville (they did it for me last week…)
SMU -13 over Tulsa
Georgia -25 over Tennessee
Navy +3 1/2 against Air Force
Kansas +32 against Oklahoma (I think Oklahoma wins, but does not cover)
Arkansas State -7 1/2 over Georgia State
Jaguars +3 1/2 against the Panthers (I think the Jags will win outright)
Vikings – 5 1/2 over the Giants
Saints -3 over the Buccaneers
Chargers – 6 1/2 over the Broncos (risky…. but Broncos are awful on the road)
Cowboys – 3 1/2 over the Packers (great matchup, and I think Cowboys win it)
Chiefs -11 over the Colts (another risky one.. Chiefs might win without covering, but I’ll go for it)
None of these games really jumped out to me as amazingly easy bets, to be honest. If I had to pick my top choices, I’d probably say Arkansas State and the Jaguars, maybe followed by Georgia. But no top picks this week, really.
