This is rough. I just can't buy a break. Was close to hitting some big totals with Virginia Tech and Penn State, but both fell just short in the final minutes. The bath is in full effect at -$11,450 for the season. I don't know if even mathematically I can catch back up. But I keep going. S/U, I'm at 5-36.
And on top of that, the options this week are so limited. A lot of really soft games (ehhh hmmm SEC) and just not that many underdogs I can believe in. I drudged up three, I think this might be good b/c my level of faith is inversely proportional to performance. At least all three picks are at home, you figure one can catch lightning in a bottle?
New Mexico (+10.5, +315) vs. Nevada
Nevada has lost three straight and is giving up a lot of points. New Mexico ain't bad and might be improving. This is a stretch, but at home, I'll see if the Lobos got something up their sleeve.
Baylor (+12.5, +370) vs. Kansas State
This is the time of year when undefeated teams start to struggle to get wins as the pressure of the BCS rankings begins to mount. Baylor is a good team and is at home. They can hang, with potential to get up big and make KSU catch up. Night game in Waco, this is a trap.
Boston College (+10, +290) vs. Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech has lost 4 of their last 5 and this is probably getting old. Boston College is decent at home, early kickoff, potential to execute and catch VT on a let down. That's all I got.
