Here at Chicago Tough we pick 3 college games and 3 pro games to take a look at.
Last week, it was only college football...here's the breakdown...damn late Notred Dame field goal!
Here are my college picks:
Washington (-13 1/2) vs. Syracuse
The Huskies are at home, have the better quarterback, and the Orange are still reeling as a program. The Orange goes cross country to face the #1 pro prospect and the Huskies only give 13 1/2. Washington, easy.
Tennessee (+12) vs. Oregon
Something weird about the Big Orange being at home...another example of a team going cross-country. It's the marquee opponent for a Vols program in transition...not sure why, but my head's telling me the Vols will show...and big...and may even win.
West Virginia (-13) at Marshall
The popular pick would be the home team that gets 13 in a rivalry game...but the Mountaineers have been waiting for that big breakout...I think they get it here.
Detroit over Chicago
I don't need to see the line. Not at all. The Bears are favored and I know they'll lose. End of story.
Green Bay (-3) over Philadelphia
Easiest bet of the week in my world. (Which probably means I'll lose.) The best team in the NFL against a new QB in Philly? Hmmm.
Arizona at St. Louis (o/u 39 points...OVER)
I have a good feeling about Bradford/Jackson getting 24 pints...which means I'd only need 15 plus from the Cards against a mediocre Rams defense...I feel good about this.
