Frivolous Picks Week 5

This week has been really busy. I have not had time to look up the lines for these games. This week I will be picking straight up. FP Account: $1800

Straight up? Wuss


There is a theme to the first three games. Old friends in new places.

No. 14 Texas A&M vs. No. 18 Arkansas – Texas A&M’s SEC Opener. Too bad they haven’t beat an SEC team since that first fall I had my drivers license. Arkansas isn’t as strong as last year, and A&M will be seething to get after some one after their 2nd half collapse last week. Texas A&M, $100.

Washington State at Colorado – Colorado had a previously scheduled non-conference game with the Cal Bears. This is Colorado’s official Pac-12 Opener. Wazzou is terrible, and they’re on the road. Colorado stampedes here. $100

No. 8 Nebraska at No. 7 Wisconsin – Nebraska’s first game in their new conference is really tough. I’d like to watch this game but I will be making my way back from Manhattan. Wisconsin has looked good but they haven’t played anyone. Nebraska did have a road game at Wyoming but they haven’t played anyone either. I’ll go with the home team. On Wisconsin! $100

Michigan State at Ohio State – This game is the 230 ABC game. I love attending 230 games, and I like watching them on TV. I like the long shadows as afternoon slides into evening as a football game progresses. Ohio State is really struggling. I’m going with Michigan State. $100

No. 3 Alabama at No. 12 Florida – Night time in the Swamp. Another epic college football atmosphere. This is a prime time game on CBS. Florida is up and coming and at home. But I think the Tide Rolls here as they have more experience. $100


Detroit at Dallas – I think the last team the battered Tony Romo and O-line want to see right now is the Detroit Lions. I think the Cowboys have been sneaking by. Detroit is 3-0 and has some play makers. They are not a fluke. Detroit to win on the road. $100

San Francisco at Philadelphia – Michael Vick is banged up but expected to play. The 49ers are improved but they’re making a 1pm kick in the eastern time zone. I never bet on West Coast teams in that situation. Philadelphia. $100.

New England at Oakland – Oakland isn’t a fluke either. They will come out and punch you in the mouth. New England making a long road trip. I’m going with Oakland. $100

NY Jets at Baltimore – Sunday Night Football. I don’t know why, but I’m going with Baltimore. $100

Indianapolis at Tampa Bay – Indy still has no Peyton Manning. Tampa Bay has a healthy Josh Freeman, and they’re at home. Tampa Bay. $100

That’s $1000 bet on 10 games. Check back Tuesday to see how I did.
