This Weekend’s Football Picks

No big write-ups, but listed below are my selections for this weekend. I don’t know if it’s the holiday season or what, but I feel more confident about my choices than I have in weeks. We will see…..

College

4 star Tennessee (-8.5) Kentucky
3 star Georgia (-3.5) Georgia Tech
3 star Oklahoma (-19) Oklahoma St.
2 star NC State (-2.5) Maryland
2 star Stanford (-17) Notre Dame

If you have been checking out my college choices this year, you would realize that I’m a big fan of dogs. Well, this week I’m all about the favorites. The Vols would have been at least 3 TD favs at the beginning of the year versus the Cats. Impressive year for the Wreck, but the Dawgs have superior talent and won’t take GTech lightly. Oklahoma really got screwed last week against TTech and will not look past the Cowboys, as they’ve done in past years. In a game to become bowl eligible, take the Wolfpack. Last game in Stanford Stadium sees the Cardinals keep it under the spread.

NFL

3 star Cincinati (-9) Baltimore
2 star New Orleans (+2.5) NY Jets
2 star Cleveland (+4.5) Minnesota

Short list of games, with the Bengals the best bet. While Cincy has struggled against top-flight NFL teams, they’ve beaten up on the weaker ones. Meet one of the weakest, as the Ravens have quit on 2005.
New Orleans plays their first game in New York which is considered a road game. Take the more talented roster. Why do I have the feeling that the Vikings can’t handle success? Mike Tice+being favored= take the dog.
