#RIP Color Rush
As expected, the Patriots rolled last week and made our #FREEMONEYLOCKOFTHEWEEK a winner! We are now riding a 4 game win streak and the Drive for Five features the Eagles vs Giants in a matchup of bad teams playing in the remnants of a gigantic hurricane…Unfortunately for the Giants, not even Color Rush Jerseys, rain/wind, and Saquon Barkley can help them tonight, because they are an absolute garbage football team.
PICK: Eagles -1
It makes me so angry that we still have to wait 2 weeks for #MACtion during the week while the #Funbelt has already started playing on Tuesdays, just taunting us. The MAC commissioner should be fired and replaced by me immediately.
Akron +11 @ Buffalo: Kato Nelson Heisman watch has been postponed until further notice. Sorry for any inconvenience.
PICK: Buffalo -11
Ball State +3 @ CMU: CMU has looked ok recently so they are 100% going to come crashing back to earth soon.
PICK: Ball State +3
Western Michigan -14.5 @ Bowling Green: Sometimes when I go bowling my hand turns green because my shoulder dislocates and no blood flows to it for several hours.
PICK: Western Michigan -14.5
Ohio +4 @ Northern Illinois: Oh, what could have been. The teams we picked to square off in the MACtion title game are a combined 6-5 and have struggled all year. While both teams have been a letdown, the Fighting Franks could easily be 1-4 instead of 3-2, and for that reason, we are going with the Huskies.
PICK: Northern Illinois -4
Toledo EVEN @ Eastern Michigan
Eastern Michigan has lost 3 games in a row by 3 points. They will break that streak against Toledo, as the Rockets should win by double digits.
PICK: Toledo -1.5
BIG TEN LOCKS OF THE WEEK
Nebraska +4 @ Northwestern
A great philosophizer once said “Before you can run, you must walk. Before you can win, you must cover.” Nebraska finally covered against Wisconsin, and now, after much deliberation, we have decided they are ready to win. Look out world, the sleeping giant has awoken and the Huskers are back!!!!!!
PICK: #FROSTWARNING +4.
Iowa -5 @ Indiana
I didn’t get to watch Iowa beat Minnesota last week but I almost passed out when I looked at my phone and saw this stat line from Nate Stanley: 23-39, 314 yards, 4 TDs. Then I saw their fake field goal and had a full-blown stroke. Kirk Ferentz has gone full RIVERBOAT Kirk mode, something we have not seen since the undefeated season of 2015. This is very bad news for the rest of the BIG 10 West.
PICK: Iowa -5
PAC 12 AFTER DARK
Arizona +13.5 @ Utah (FRIDAY 9:00 PM CST)
Friday and Saturday #PAC12AfterDark this week, what a pleasant surprise! Utah is coming off of a huge upset of Stanford while Arizona seems to have figured out that Khalil Tate could be a Heisman candidate if you don’t try to turn him into a pocket passer. Rolling with the Wildcatz.
PICK: ARIZONA +13.5
Colorado +7.5 @ USC (9:30 PM CST)
Last week we predicted that Utah would pull the first #PAC12AfterDark upset of the year and they destroyed Stanford. This week, USC is a 7.5 point favorite against the undefeated Buffalo. Sure, Colorado might be overrated because the record of the teams they have beat is 5-22, but they also might be the greatest team ever assembled…who knows?? Ralphie might just run his way straight to the PAC 12 championship and the College Football Playoff.
PICK: COLORADO +7.5
