I am going to act like last week didnít happen and unfortunately my bank account canít do the same. I went 0-3 on all three of my locks but that happens sometimes in College Football. Itís not how you start but itís how you finish and thatís why I think I am prime for a big bounce back week for College Football Ė Week 6!
Miami (3-0) @ Florida State (1-2) Mia -3.5
Itís no secret that Florida State is not good this year after playing a very close game with Wake Forest. It was my upset pick of the week last week and I was very close to hitting on it. To be clear, Wake Forest is a very average team. That makes Florida State somewhat of an average team. Duke is an above average team who got blown out by Miami on last Friday night which means Miami > Florida State. I like Miami to cover and win BIG.
LSU (3-2) @ Florida. (3-1) Fla -2
Let me get this straightÖLSU LOST TO TROY AT HOME, and somehow they are still only two point underdogs in the swamp??? One of the hardest places to play in college football??? I know Florida lost Luke Del Rio to a shoulder injury, but Felipe Franks is capable enough to beat LSU who lost to TROY and a bad Mississippi St. team who we all thought was good after whooping them in Death Valley. NEWS FLASH!! UPDATE!! LSU is bad. Gimmie Florida by a lot.
Missouri (1-3) @ Kentucky (4-1) UK -9.5
Missouri is the worst team in football period. End of Story. Kentuckyís only loss is to Florida in the Swamp which they should have won, but they had some mental errors and the rest is history. If Kentucky canít beat Missouri by 10 points at home, thenÖthen..I donít know, I will officially declare that I know nothing about College Football anymore and I will end this weekly write up I do about lock of the weeks. All Kentucky has to do is just run the ball with Benny Snell Jr. and complete third down passes which I think Stephen Johnson is clearly capable of, and they will win this game.
Other notable pickí em games:
Louisville over NC State
Washington St. over Oregon
TCU over West Virginia
Michigan over Michigan St.
(Money line Parlay of the Week: [Memphis -600 + Boise St -310 + Penn St. -750 + Notre Dame -700 + Kentucky -400 + Wisconsin -450 + San Diego St -400] = +282 @ $25.00 to win $70.43
