College Football Picks - Week 6

A disappointing final result last week on my picks, after NC State had a disastrous second half and Oregon St came up a half point short. However, a 3-3 week isn't too bad. This week is a good time for improvement, and I'm confident the following picks will deliver.

Michigan St (+4.5) over MICHIGAN - The Wolverines' porous defense will keep Sparty in the game, and the State D will significantly outperform the Hoosiers' D from last week. Look for more modest numbers from Shoelace.

NC STATE (-9.5) over Boston College - It's gonna be a rough year for the Eagles, and nothing's changing this week as O'Brien will beat up on his old team.

WAKE FOREST (+4.5) over Navy - The Midshipmen are clearly having a down year, and Wake just played the same offense, giving them a significant advantage in preparation.

GEORGIA (-11.5) over Tennessee - This is a classic WTF line, and the Dawgs have been improving. Even though I think the Vols are superior in the trenches, the home crowd and AJ Green for a full game may be enough to help the Dawgs cover.

Alabama (-6.5) over SOUTH CAROLINA - Vegas must be expecting a let-down from the Tide, which isn't going to happen. The Gamecocks don't have the physical strength to keep up with Bama.

FLORIDA (-6) over Lsu - The Tigers have no offense, and this is the game that it catches up to them.

ARKANSAS (-5.5) over Texas A&M - Mallett will be too much for the Aggies.

STANFORD (-9.5) over Usc - The Trojans' reign in the Pac-10 will officially and conclusively end with a rout at Stanford this weekend. Kiffin's not the same coach Carroll was and the talent doesn't seem to be the same either.

Enjoy the games!

Last week: 3-3
