A much better week this past week with my picks. 3-1 in the college ranks to put me over .500 there and a rare 1-1-1 with the pro picks. Let's keep the momentum going.
Michigan St -2.5 over NORTHWESTERN
Michigan St has been very good to me here at the Gambling Corner and I think they will cover the number once again this week. Northwestern isn't a very impressive squad and I think Mich St will win this game so laying the 2.5 is not a big deal.
NC State + 7.5 over NOTRE DAME
ND is coming off a big blow-out win vs USC last week but NC State is good....real good. I see this as a field goal game either way so give me the points and NC State on the road to keep it close.
Louisville -3 over WAKE FOREST
I'm not sold on WF being very good and again the best player on the field is Lamar Jackson so give me Louisville and lay a low number here as I think they have more talent across the board.
YEAR TO DATE: 12-11-2
Atlanta -4.5 over NY JETS
Again, I think the Jets are not very good at all and the Falcons who have lost now 3 in a row will not lose a 4th in a row and they will lay a whoopin on the Jets at Metlife. Give me the Falcons laying not a lot of points.
PHILADELPHIA -12.5 over San Francisco
I don't like laying so many points in the NFL especially with Philly playing on a short week but SF is that bad. I'm not sure SF will score many if any points and Carson Wentz is the league MVP this year as he is running away with it. Take Philly and lay the lumber.
KANSAS CITY -7 over Denver
The Chiefs are coming off a couple losses here playing a Denver team that just can't score. KC will put up enough points to cover vs a Denver team who is unable to move the ball.
SEATTLE -5.5 over Houston
This is the week Watson crashes back to reality and has a rough start. Seattle will win and cover the low number.
