I’m back, bitches. After going 2-3 the week prior, I bounced back last week going 3-2, including hitting my Lock of the Week. That’s how you rebound (take notes Golden St Warriors and Cleveland Indians). We’re getting deeper into the College Football season, so I have a much better feel for each team now… not really, but I’ve convinced myself that I do. There’s a great slate of games this week, and could be the week I go 5-0. So gather ’round everyone and enjoy these winners:
Oklahoma St +3 @ Kansas St
This has trap game written all over it, but I don’t care I’m riding with the Cowboys. They score points in bunches, and from the one time I watched Kansas State this year they did not, given it was only the first game of the season, but that’s not the point. Plus, when push comes to shove I’m always going to take the team with the cooler jersey, which just happens to be OK State. And just so everyone knows, Bill Synder is an overrated coach who has never won a goddamn thing in his life.
Army -2 vs Air Force
I haven’t been giving any love to our troops this year, but that changes now. I know nothing about these teams other than their records, and that they both seem to get their teeth kicked in when they play Navy each year. I’m going with the Black Knights because I like how they’re the home team, and every now and then I would play with them in NCAA Football, which is a travesty that it’s no longer in existence. Fuck you, EA Sports.
Alabama -7 @ LSU
Alabama is the best team in football this year, that’s just a fact. They’ve had a few close games, but, for the most part, they haven’t been tested at all, and I don’t expect that to change on Saturday. Look, I know Death Valley is a brutal place to play at, especially at night, and you definitely can’t look past how the Tigers are 3-0 against the spread since they made a coaching change, but Alabama is the better team and Nick Saban lives for ripping out the souls of innocent people. Their offense can roll out of bed and put up 40 points, and I don’t see that changing Saturday night. ROLL DAMN TIDE!
Texas Tech +3 vs Texas
I can’t make heads or tails of Texas. I picked them two weeks ago and they lost, then I went against them last week and they won; what a bunch of assholes. I should probably stay away from them, but like a bad relationship, I just can’t let go of them. Having said all of that, I love a home underdog so I’m going with the Red Raiders. They’re both 4-4, so it’s pretty much a tossup, but give me the home team.
Auburn vs Vanderbilt OVER 44.5 : Lock of The Week
Vanderbilt may suck, but Auburn does not, and they could hit them over by themselves. They’re feeling all good about themselves being ranked in the top ten this week, so I think they’re going to feed off the home crowd and put up at least 40 points. If need be Vanderbilt may throw us a bone and score a touchdown or two. This is an awfully low point total so it could be a trap, but only Communists bet on the under, and last time I checked this was America. War Eagle/whatever Vanderbilt’s chant is.
If you don’t like any of those picks, which would be stupid because they’re all winners, I also like Texas A&M -13 @ Mississippi State, but I’m not counting that one towards my record. The quest for an undefeated week continues, so what better time to hit it than the first weekend in November (mine, Ryan Gosling, Leo DiCaprio, and Matthew McConaughey’s birthday month no big deal or anything). Let it ride.
Record on the Year (started in Week 7): 8-7
Locks of the Week: 2-1
