Lock City: Week 6 College Football Picks

Lock City was a solid 4-2 in College last week and 9-3 the past 2 weeks…..once again to give it all back with the NFL, but lets keep making that money with the kids.

North Carolina Tar Heels (4-2) at Miami Hurricanes (4-2)

Miami has won the previous two meetings, including last year in Chapel Hill. I believe Miami will bounce back strong at home, they may lose a close one, but I’ll take the points with the home dog.
Miggles Pick – Miami +7.5

Stanford Cardinal (4-1) at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-0)

The Cardinal are worse than they were last year and the Irish are much improved in 2012.  Notre Dame is finally back in the talks for BCS and a double digit win at home against Stanford solidifies that.  Ill take the Irish here.

Miggles Pick – Notre Dame – 7

South Carolina Gamecocks (6-0) at LSU Tigers (5-1)

This should be a defensive battle and getting points in a game where points may be tough to come by is a solid choice.

Miggles Pick South Carolina +3

Louisville Cardinals (5-0) at Pittsburgh Panthers (2-3)

Pitt’s run game and defense leave a lot to be desired.  Louisville is undefeated and while their previous two road games have been a bit shaky, they have gotten the wins.  I like Louisville D to have a good game plan after a bye week, Louisville by a TD.

Miggles Pick – Louisville – 3

Lock City: Week 3 College Gameday Picks

Ok so far our football betting record is 9-6-1 and looking build this week with todays picks.

 

Virginia Tech Hokies (2-0) at Pittsburgh Panthers (0-2)

This one is pretty simple for me.  Pitt is bad, their D couldnt slow down Cincinnati or Youngstown State.  Dont really see them slowing down Logan Thomas and VaTech.  On the flip side, Tech’s D is good and fast.  I dont see a horrible Pitt offense doing much on that side of the ball either.  I think -10 is a gift cause apparently playing in Pitt has been difficult for some.  I really dont think that matters much here as I see Virginia Tech rolling.

 

Miggles Pick VaTech -10

 

South Alabama Jaguars (1-1) at North Carolina State Wolfpack (1-1)

State started the year on the road with two pretty tough games, at Tennessee and Uconn.  They finally come home on their season opener with an over matched Southern Alabama team who couldnt score a TD last week against Nichols State?  I didnt even know Nichols had a football team.  I dont think Southern gets on the board today and State trounces them by 5 or 6 TD’s.  Dont like the big spreads, but -30.5 is very doable in this one.

 

Miggles Pick – NC State -30.5

 

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-0) at Michigan State Spartans (2-0)

This should be one of the better games on Saturday.   The Spartans have looked impressive in their first two outings this season, and even though the Irish did come out a bit flat against the Boilermakers, keep in mind that ND had to travel back from Ireland the previous week, which leads me to take the points here.  Can they win?  Not so sure, but I think its gonna be close and the fact that Im not sure they win or lose Ill take +5 points with a ND team that still thinks they could be in BCS talks at the end of the season.

 

Miggles Pick ND +5

 

Southern Cal Trojans (2-0) at Stanford Cardinal (2-0)

This is another case of maybe, just maybe Stanford can pull this off.  They have won 2 of the last 3 between the two teams and I think they give USC a scare here at worst.  Im taking the points again in this one.

Miggles Pick – Stanford +7.5
