6Rings Pick’Em Challenge and TC’s Guarantees: Week 6

Everyone say hi to Doug

Everyone say hi to Doug

The season is still young, but last week Brian and Mike took the opportunity to separate themselves from the pack as each rattled off a 4-2 record along with Frank to .500 after his second week of pick’em. Having been at the Northwestern game this past weekend and seeing the reaction of those in the stands as Ohio State recovered a desperation lateral in the endzone as time expired to cover the spread, I can only imagine the reaction held in Vegas. Literally millions and millions and beyond millions of dollars were switched hands in a matter of seconds. Crazy shit, and I’m not quite sure why we put ourselves through caring so much about games otherwise we wouldn’t care about at all. That being said, he’s the slate of games that will shed at least two years off of our lives this weekend….Everyone say hi to Doug.

TC’s Guarantees (11-7 on the year, 3-0 last week)

Sometimes in life you get to a point when you need to just stop gambling, clear your mind, and look at yourself in the mirror. Two weeks ago I called myself out in front of all of you, my trusting audience, to make myself a better man. A better leader of men. So much that I even went to extra mile to put my money where my mouth is and re-up into the world of Bovada…only to get shut down because Visa apparently doesn’t support the winning of free money….and go 3-0. My only saving grace out of this situation is praying my friends back home in Connecticut actually listened and don’t have “Big Sal” coming to break their legs.

Oklahoma (-14) v. Texas (Cotton Bowl, Dallas)

If you’ve been following the soap opera that is Texas Longhorns football this season, you know that the Longhorns defense can’t stop a nosebleed and is already on defensive coordinator number two. Just can’t see the Longhorns keeping this within 20 points.

Oregon State (+2) at Washington State

This is Sean Mannion. He's a real person.

Since Oregon State shit themselves opening week versus Eastern Washington, they have been on a tear and there’s no bigger reason why than their QB Sean Mannion. In five games, he has 21 TDs and 2 INTs and is probably the best QB the media won’t mention. Oregon State has rolled WSU by 30ppg in their last three visits to Pullman. Take the points.

Jaguars at Broncos (-27)

History in this game as this is the largest spread to ever hit the NFL books. 19+pt underdogs are 10-3 against the spread all time, but the Jaguars are 0-1 this year in such situations. The way I look at it is that the Jaguars will have to score 21 points to even have a chance to covering, and I just don’t see it happening (and yes, I’ve factored in Manning only playing three quarters max). The Jaguars are BAD.
