It was another rough week for me last week as all my picks disappointed me once again. For the year, I’m 1-7-0 with my picks, meaning if I actually put money on this, I’d be broke and joining the Occupy Wall Street movement.
I realize reading my terrible picks each week might get old, so I did something different this week.
You might be asking: This picking games cannot be that hard. A dog could probably do better than this idiot.
This week, it’s me vs. the dog. I picked four games for Hartley to pick, pritned out the school logos, put a treat on each logo and watched which one he picked. Let’s see who wins this week …
Here are my picks first:
Bet the farm on …
Bet the tractor on …
Virginia Tech (-21) over Boston College
This pick is more against Boston College that for Virginia Tech, but I like the Hokies in this one. BC is miserably terrible, and while the Hokies screwed me once this year already, I’m going to try them one more time.
45-10 Va. Tech
Bet the cow on …
Colorado (+31.5) over Orgeon
Oregon will win this game easily, but without LaMichael James, it will not be a blow out like the books have it. A late Colorado touchdown will put the Buffalos within the spread.
Bet the pig on …
Auburn (+21) over LSU
Again, I think LSU will win this one by a lot, but a late touchdown will put Auburn inside the spread. Without the 3 suspended LSU players, I have some faith in Auburn, but I’ve been wrong before on this.
And now for Hartley’s picks
Auburn vs. LSU
Hartley takes Auburn and the 21 points in the matchup of Tigers. Same pick as me, so at least I won’t be completely blown out by the dog.
Florida State vs. Maryland
Hartley taking the Terps and the (+18) line in the battle of disappointing ACC teams.
USC vs. Notre Dame
Hartley obviously isn’t a Catholic as he chooses USC and the +9.5 line over the Irish.
Oklahoma St. vs. Missouri
Hartley remains loyal to the SEC, even the non-confirmed members of the SEC, and is taking the Tigers and the 7.5 points to cover.
For the record, Hartley has picked the underdogs in each game. Seems about right for him. Not let’s see how we do …
