College Football Picks - Week 10

A little more patience and consideration this week in an attempt to turn things around:

Air Force (-7) over ARMY - Air Force gave Oklahoma all they wanted in Norman, and finally broke through against Navy. Count on them winning the Commander's Cup with ease. Army's record is better, but the quality of the competition does not compare.

MIAMI (-8) over Maryland - If Harris plays, this should not be close. Wait to put your money to find out his condition.

Illinois (+3) over MICHIGAN - The Wolverines' porous D is still porous, and was gashed last week by Penn St, which isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut this year. The Illini are a tough, physical team, which can't be said for Michigan.

Oklahoma (-3) over TEXAS A&M - The Aggies have struggled against good teams this year, with losses to OK State, Arkansas, and Missouri. Expect a margin similar to the 30-9 loss to Mizzou.

KANSAS ST (+4) over Texas - Consecutive home losses to UCLA, Iowa St, and Baylor have me down on the Horns. K State is playing better right now, even after a loss to the Cowboys, and I'm not sure Texas is really going to play as desperately as they need to if they want to make a bowl game at all.

Tcu (-5) over UTAH - The Utes are good, but not nearly as good as the Horned Frogs. The spread being under a TD is a gift.

Arizona (+9) over STANFORD - This game was a classic last year, and I think the Wildcats have improved since last year. The Cardinal doesn't have Gerhart any more. Stanford will probably win at home, but this spread is too large.

Alabama (-6.5) over LSU - The Mad Hatter just doesn't have enough offense for this one. You have to like the under (44) in this one.

Last week: 3-5
Season: 29-24-3
