10/31/09 Football Picks

Most of you who decided to take the favorites last week in the NFL should have faired quite well.  We went 4-1 with our College and NFL picks, and hopefully you had a similar outting.  Here are our picks for this weekend's slate of games.

  1. Texas -9.5 over Oklahoma State (Texas is scoring 41 ppg, so as long the defense can show up, this should be an easy cover)
  2. Houston -6.5 over Southern Miss (Houston has been good, but this will be a test)
  3. Cal -6.5 over Arizona State (Cal has been pathetic on the road the last few years, but that is history, and Cal covers)
  4. NY Giants -1 over Philadelphia Eagles (This line started at +3 for NYG, so the big boys are betting hard on the Giants also)
  5. St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions under 44 (2 pathetic offenses equals a low scoring game)
