California (+3) Arizona St. (4-star)
Hawaii/New Mexico St. (under 80)
Texas A&M (+3) Kansas
Michigan (-23) Minnesota
USC (+3) Oregon (4-star)
This week features my Pac-10 parlay of the year! Cal needs this win to have a chance at going to a major bowl, while ASU hasn’t played anyone that good, until now. I don’t do college unders, well unless I’m given 80 points. First 79 points and I’m winning! Kansas hasn’t played anyone outside of the state of Kansas besides Colorado. Minnesota is as bad of a BCS school as there is in the US. I know the Trojans have struggled, but to give this type of talent points, I will take Carroll to get it done. College Picks are 24-18.
Detroit (+5) Chicago
Indy (-6.5) Carolina
Washington (+16.5) New England
Buffalo (+3) NY Jets
Minnesota (+1) Philly
Detroit has one of the top 5 receiving crews in the NFL, while the Bears are still beat-up in the secondary. Indy is a lot better team than the Panthers, especially with Freeney and Mathis speed rushing around the corner on AncientTesterverde. The Pats have been killing the spread all year, but with the Colts on deck and a really solid defense from DC, they finally win by less than 2 TD’s. The Bills are better than the Jets. The Vikings are a playoff team with a Division 2 QB and a head coach who doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing. If they run Mr. Petersen enough, they will still beat an Eagles team which I think has started to quit on the season. Look for the Philly D to be yelling, Yo Adrian, a lot as he runs by them. NFL Choices are 14-16.
