Rough week last week...went 1-5 (thank goodness for the Bears)
TIME TO BOUNCE BACK!
#19 Northwestern at Wisconsin -10.5
We'll learn a LOT about the Badgers this weekend. Can they stop the NW passing attack? Can NW slow down the UW running game? I think a win here would be HUGE for Wisconsin. It would show they can beat a good team, finally. They will, but it will be CLOSE and a shootout. UW 41 NW 38
#12 Okalahoma -13 vs Texas
Remember when the Red River Shootout was "can't miss" game? Not anymore. Thanks, Texas. BOOMER SOONER big 40-14
#2 Oregon -14 @ #16 Washington
Washington scored (albeit late) on the Stanford defense last week. Oregon will do their normal thing: score...can the Huskies keep up? I think so...another video game score: Ducks 41 dogs 38
Packers -3 @ Ravens
Not too many teams go INTO Baltimore as favorites. The Packers will...and they'll do it without Clay Matthews. Could mean Flacco throws all day with little pressure. SOMEBODY must step up and get to the QB...oh, and please keep Aaron Rodgers upright. Packers win by 1 27-26.
Jacksonville @ Denver -28
yes...it's a FOUR TOUCHDOWN SPREAD...The biggest in NFL history. Yikes. You can't hear that you'll lose by 28 all week and NOT come out fired up, right? I'll be the dummy that takes the jags +28. Broncos 48 Jags 21
Saints @ Patriots -2.5
Saints are rolling. The offense is great (as usual). But the difference just may be new defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan. New Englands offense may see Gronk back...this is a MONSTER GAME. NO 30 NE 27.
Last week: 3-2-1 (UGA/LSU was a push)
Season record: 11-12-1
OK...after a slow start, we've gaine a little ground...Here are my picks this week:
ohio state -8 @ Northwestern
The Badgers need an osu loss to get back in the race for the Leaders division (or is it the Legends?) Not a lot of loseable games on that osu schedule. Total heart pick. NW 31 suckeyes 30
Washington @ Stanford -7.5
I LOVE this Stanford team. They run. They throw. They play DEFENSE. And they'll beat Washington 30-20.
Arizona State -6 vs Notre Dame at JERRY WORLD
ASU got Lane Kiffin fired last week. They're CRAZY GOOD on offense. Hung 62 on USC. ND is 3-2. This AIN'T 2012. ASU BIG 31-13.
Lions at Packers -8
Keep Rodgers upright and Green Bay rolls. If not? The streak could end...it won't, but it won't be easy. LIGHT UP THE SCOREBOARD! Streak continues: 40-37
Saints -3.5 at Bears
Chicago has put out an alert for this Sunday. Expect a SEVERE case of Cutleritius. Symptoms include; pouting, turnovers, general douchbaggery and fighting with teammates. Oh, and Drew Brees is good at football. WHO DAT 36 chicago 24
Seahawks -4 at Colts
Last week i bet against the Seahawks on the road. Won't do it to many more times and not this week. This could be the best game of the weekend. Russell Wilson 26 Andrew Luck 21
