Last week we were presented with two ties, and it was tough to make moves, but somehow Brian was able to blow past everyone in the standings to stand alone in first place. The team, in total, is still above .500 which is pretty damn good baby. Real life grown up things are running my life this week, so let’s get right to this week’s picks.
This Week’s Picks:
Brian (14-7-3), Last Week: 4-0-2
FSU – Michigan – Ohio St – Packers – Bears – Broncos
Mike (13-8-3), Last Week: 3-1-2
Maryland – Michigan – Ohio St – Packers – Saints – Broncos
Mack (13-8-3), Last Week: 3-1-2
FSU – Minnesota – Ohio St – Lions – Bears – Broncos
Tony (11-10-3), Last Week: 2-2-2

TC’s Guarantees (8-7 on the year)
Leave it to the Raiders to blow a 14-0 lead getting 3.5 points at home. Now they are going to make me stay up for their Monday Morning Football match up against the Chargers. Hey, at least we’re back into our winning ways posting a 2-1 record last week. A lot of good matchups this week with conference play starting and NFL teams really having an identity now. Let’s make some money this weekend, eh? (Yay hockey whooooooooo).
Michigan State (Pick) at Iowa
Iowa has showed this year that they are not the complete and utter joke that most anticipated, but I can definitely see Sparty out-Ferentzing Kirk Ferentz in this one. That stout Michigan State defense will find a way to stop Martin-Manley and Weisman and pull out the W at Kinnick.
West Virginia at Baylor (-28.5)
Roarty tried to warn us. Did anyone listen? NO. I’m listening now. I LOVE MY BEARS. Baylor’s average point differential in three games is +63. I don’t see a 35 point difference in the West Virginia defense, and I certainly can’t get the 37-0 loss to Maryland out of my mind either.
Saints (-1) at Bears
The Bears could easily be 1-3 at this point, and they are pretty beat up as it stands now. The forecast for Sunday in Chicago looks pretty good and shouldn’t halt that potent Saints offense at all. Love the Saints here.
