Lock City: Week 9 College Football Picks

We are a white hot 19-5-2 in the last 5 weeks with the kids.  Lets hope we can keep the streak going and make some more money.  Good luck!

 

North Carolina State Wolfpack (5-2) at North Carolina Tar Heels (5-3)

UNC  may have the more talented team, but they are too inconsistent to lay more than a touchdown in a rivalry game. I’m taking the points in a game that may come down to the last possession.

Miggles Pick – NC State +7.5

 

Michigan State Spartans (4-4) at Wisconsin Badgers (6-2)

The Spartans do have a solid defense, which I think can keep things close for awhile, but Wisconsin is the better team and should get the late cover.

Miggles Pick – Wisconsin – 5.5

 

Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0) at Penn State Nittany Lions (5-2)

Penn State looks to be the play here as they are always tough at home, and I just think PSU is playing as well, if not better than anyone in the conference right now.

Miggles Pick – Penn State – 1

 

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (7-0) at Oklahoma Sooners (5-1)

The Irish will lean on their defense to try and slow down an Oklahoma offense who is on a roll right now. The problem I see here is will Notre Dame score enough to keep this one close.  I’m going with the hot team and laying the points.

Miggles Pick – Oklahoma – 11

 

Mississippi State Bulldogs (7-0) at Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0)

Mississippi State hasnt really played anyone,  but at the same time they haven’t lost yet nor played poorly and might be getting just a few too many points here so the play is talking the three TD’s.

Miggles Pick – Mississippi State +23

Lock CIty: Week 5 College Football Picks

Ok Ok so we moved up to 16-11-2 this week.  Looking to extend this mini winning streak today with some strong picks.

North Carolina State Wolfpack (3-1) at Miami Hurricanes (3-1)

NC State and Miami will wage in an ACC battle of two 3-1 teams in Miami today. Miami is  2-0 in conference play while the Wolfpack will be playing their first ACC game of the year. NC State’s run defense hasn’t been very good this year, and Miami will look to pound the ball all day long against a weak front seven. Im gonna side with the home team in this one and lay the 2 points, in a game that could be a shootout if the defenses don’t step up.

Miggles Pick – Miami – 2

Ohio State Buckeyes (4-0) at Michigan State Spartans (3-1)

This line started out as a pick’em game, and since has moved to MSU -2. I think there is some value here with the Buckeyes as OSU is a better team than they showed us last week.  I think the Spartans are the inferior team here and Im guessing being at home has made this line what it is.  +2 points is a gift and Im taking Ohio State in the outright win.

Miggles Pick = Ohio State +110

Clemson Tigers (3-1) at Boston College Eagles (1-2)

Clemson has won three of the last four meetings between the two schools. If Clemson upset Florida State, this would set up as a game that the Tigers may look over and take lightly. However, coming off that tough loss I think the Tigers will come out hot and ready to run the Eagles off their own field. Boston College has had two weeks to prepare, but all the time in the world couldn’t prepare the Eagles defense for Clemson’s offensive weapons. Boston College may score over 20 points, but I don’t see them slowing down the Tigers offense. I’ll lay the points with Clemson and my stronger play will be on the over as this will be another ACC shootout.

Miggles Pick – Clemson – 6.5 and OVER 59

Louisville Cardinals (4-0) at Southern Miss Golden Eagles (0-3)

Louisville, despite their sub-par showing against FIU, is a very solid team on both sides of the ball and a class above anyone else who has romped Southern Miss this season. I look for the Cardinals to run away with this one… This is my strongest play of the day.  LOCK

Miggles Pick – Cards – 11
