Back again to try my hand at picking some point-spread winners, last week though I was none too successful as the 2-6 mark makes me 44-70-3 for the season. Still beats Ted Roofs winning percentage.
Speaking of whichâ€¦
Ted is in essence dead, but I think the carcass of Duke football still has enough life in it to cover +15 Â½ against the Heels, BTW- yours truly has an extra, if you actually want it email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Wake -2 on the road at Vandy, the Deacs still have a lot to play for, Vandy is liable to be a bit spent after putting out a great effort last week against UT.
In what I think is college footballs greatest rivalry I will take Auburn -5 against Alabama. After losing to Louisiana Lafayette or some equally scrubby team Nick Saban compared the shock to 9-11 or Pearl Harbor. After this week Hiroshima might be a better reference because once the Tigers roll the Tide Bama fan will be ready to go nuclear.
BC -14 against Miami, it has become obvious that the Canes have just quit caring.
In the pros weâ€™ll take our chances withâ€¦.
Cleveland -3 vs. the Texans
New Orleans -3 against Carolina, right now I doubt the Panthers could cover a car with a tarp.
And on MNF I will take the Steelers -16 against the dysfunctional Dolphins
