BH nosed ahead by a half game last week.
Blatant Homerism--Week 6
(Last week: 3-2; Overall: 14-11)
Warning: I like about 20 games this week, which normally means fade, fade, fade.
Florida (+3) at Tennessee
The more I've seen of Tennessee, the more I like the Volunteers' trajectory. But a loss here could put Will Muschamp on a trajectory right out of Gainesville. Florida's bye week gave offensive coordinator Kurt Roper and Coach Boom an opportunity to get the Gators primed for this game, where they badly need a win.
The pick: Florida outright.
LSU at Auburn (-8)
I just don't see it with this edition of the Bayou Bengals. LSU doesn't seem to do anything particularly well, and Brandon Harris working over New Mexico State in the friendly confines of Death Valley doesn't mean he's ready for a trip to the Plains.
The pick: Auburn all day long.
Arizona at Oregon (-23.5)
In theory, this looks like an interesting game between two undefeated squads. The Pac-12 tucking it away late on a Thursday night is more indicative of the slaughter that's in store for 'Zona. The Wildcats aren't good, and the Ducks will be looking for revenge.
The pick: Oregon.
Wake Forest at Florida State (-38)
The sleep-walking Seminoles got jolted awake last week by North Carolina State. Good time to buy low against an inept Demon Deacons offense.
The pick: 'Noles by 50ish.
Memphis (+4) at Cincinnati
The Bearcats are overrated. Not sure how Vegas continues to sleep on the Tigers.
The pick: Memphis outright.
The Skinny--Week 6
(Last week: 2-2-1; Overall: 13-11-1)
Stanford at Notre Dame (+2)
Tulsa at Colorado State (-14.5)
Baylor (-15) at Texas
LSU (+8) at Auburn
Miami at Georgia Tech (Pick)
