Chicago Tough Picks of the Week (9/11)

Here at Chicago Tough we pick 3 college games and 3 pro games to take a look at.

Last week, it was only college's the breakdown...damn late Notred Dame field goal!

College: 1-2

Pro: 0-0

Total: 1-2

Here are my college picks:

Washington (-13 1/2) vs. Syracuse


Listen to my guy, Johnny...He's a good man. Time to put on some Aquavelva.

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.
