Entering the home stretch, BH has caught fire. It will only make the fall that much harder.
On to this week’s picks, which will be brief.
BLATANT HOMERISM--Week 11
(Last week: 4-1; Overall: 28-20-2)
Auburn (+14) at Georgia
I realize that the Tigers are flailing. Gus Malzahn might get canned at any minute. I still just can’t fathom why UGA is giving two touchdowns here.
The pick: Let’s say Bulldogs by eight.
Texas (-1.5) at Texas Tech
Previewed this game for Athlon. If the Longhorns lose this game with Jett Duffey on the sticks for Tech, something is seriously wrong in Austin.
The pick: Horns up.
LSU at Arkansas (+11.5)
Arkansas bites the big one, but what a terrible situation for the Bayou Bengals, especially with the Razorbacks coming off an open date.
The pick: Louisiana State by not enough – if at all.
Ohio State at Michigan State (+3.5)
I don’t like anything about the way the Buckeyes are playing.
The pick: Sparty straight up.
Northwestern at Iowa (-10)
This line looks surprisingly thick, doesn’t it? I suspect that is because the Wildcats may not score.
The pick: Lay the 10.
THE SKINNY--Week 11
(Last week: 3-2; Overall: 23-27)
Oregon (+3.5) at Utah
Purdue (-10.5) at Minnesota
South Florida (+14) at Cincinnati
Baylor at Iowa State (-17)
Fresno State (-2.5) at Boise State
