Coming off my first winning week (4-3 after starting 0-3), I am still near the worst picker of all time, Trapp in 2012. My God is he horrible. This week I am going back to my bread-and-butter...double-digit favorites (and Syracuse). I am being a p*ssy though, putting up the 3 big night time games but not using them for my picks....the bad record this year has shaken my confidence. Week 4 HERE.WE.GO....
The ole 2-5 and money game loss.
Maryland at 8West Virginia -27
If the 'noles can put 52 on Wake, WVU can put 60 on Maryland. The Thundering Herd's defense shows more heart than the Terps.
L 31-21 Barf.
Kentucky at 14Florida -24.5
12:21 SEC Network
If 'Bama can put 52 on Arkansas, a red-hot Gators team can put 30+ on Kentucky, coming off a loss to directional-Kentucky school.
W 38-0 Gators on a roll, and Kentucky trying to play basketball in the fall.
Miami (FL) at Georgia Tech -14
If Miami gave up 52 to Kansas State, then GT, who has found their groove after putting up 50+ on UVA last week, can beat the 'canes by two touches.
L 42-36 OT The U had an incredible comeback from GT's comeback and won in OT. Bad betting loss.
2LSU -20.5 at Auburn
Auburn is bad. LSU is pretty good. Big spread, on the road, however LSU has been known to step it up against good opponents and I gotta roll with the Tigers in purple and gold.
L 12-10 Auburn showed some backbone and LSU's offense looked like Ohio State's after racing to a 9-0 lead.
20Louisville -13.5 at FIU
This one snuck up on me. I don't know who is worse, FIU or Kentucky, but they are similar and under 14 looks really good. Almost too good to be true. Should be someone's money game.
L 28-21 I have no idea what happened in this game.
Vanderbilt at 5Georgia -13
Same ole UGA, same ole Vandy. If Georgia can go into Mizzou at night and beat them down, Vandy, at home, at dusk could get away from the Commodores early.
W 48-3 When in doubt, go against Vandy in SEC play.
Syracuse +1.5 at Minnesota
'Cuse looked "good" against Southern Cal, and Minnesota just lost their only playmaker since Marion Barber III and and Laurence Maroney. The Orange For The Win.
L 17-10 No idea but Syracuse is a decent team. Nice W for the B1G I guess. Look, the Gophers are 4-0!
Best of the Rest:
18Michigan +5.5 at 11Notre Dame
Everyone is on the Golden Domers, including me. However, these games have been close, and Sparty's offense is not like Michigan's. Could be a shootout.
L 13-6 Holy shit Michigan's offense is bad. Holy shit Notre's defense showed up.
15Kansas State +14 at 6Oklahoma
K-State made me some money last year and OU has been known to, you know, not show up for these types of games. Two touchdowns is HUGE. I was expecting around 4-8.
W 24-19 K-State wins outright in Norman, Not surprised at all. Boomer Sooner is now officially Chokelahoma.
10Clemson at 4FSU -14
8:00 ABC (GAMEDAY)
Clemson in a big game. The 'Noles looks great. 14 is HUGE but there is no way I can't not take Clemson. This could be close, but probably a blowout, like 52-14ish.
L 49-37 One late freaking touchdown by Clemson covers for them. Probably the most fun I had watching a game in a few years.
