|I'm making money. You should too.
Previous Week: 3-2 (+80)
Season: 15-9-1 (+$510)
This week's theme, finding games that should be near pick'em, but one team is being given about a TD. I don't like picking games more than 8 or 9 points (because wins then are subject to loss via late touchdown). So here are this week's winners
Pittsburgh (-6.5) vs Georgia Tech (12:30 p.m. EDT)
Okay, for this pick, I'm going with the TD favorite. Not quite a TD that is. I still am a Georgia Tech doubter. Pittsburgh is a grinding team that should be able to win this at home by 10 points or more. Even a TD win at the end gets this cover.
Tennessee (+6.5) at Texas A+M (3:30 p.m. EDT)
This is about the time that Texas A+M schedule gets tougher and they start to drop SEC games. Tennessee has had big game after big game every week and maybe this one they will start better. I see this as a toss up, so give me 6.5 points and I'll take it.
Alabama (-14) at Arkansas (7:00 p.m. EDT)
I admit I have a problem. An Alabama problem. I just can see more scenarios where they beat the spread than not. They don't always, but this game seems like one they can take control of. So tee me up again, I'll take the Tide and give the two TD
Texas Tech (+7.5) at Kansas State (7:00 p.m. EDT)
Texas Tech video game offense can render any game into a pick'em. Kansas State nearly picked up a win at West Virginia, but I don't like this matchup with Red Raiders speed as much as that one. Tech's defense will give up points, but I think win the game (or at least lose by a TD or less).
Florida State (+3) at Miami (8:00 p.m. EDT)
Florida State is much more battle tested than the Canes. This is just another big game in a series and I think the rivalry inspires them to step up their game. Home field at Miami is not what it used to be, and I think Florida State is angry after last week's disappointment and gets the job done.
Good luck to your team, and enjoy your college football Saturday!
