All in all we had a pretty good week last week on our Friday Locks. As a group we went 5-1 with the loss being OnlyOne's pick of Penn St. to be Rutgers by more than 6.5. JTE is also now 4-0 over the last two weeks after starting the season off 0-2. This week we've got a fresh set of picks among the games selected for the official CCM Pick'em Contest sponsored by Sooner Legends Inn & Suites. However, one of us is breaking a cardinal rule by selecting the Sooners as one of the locks.
Miami (-12.5) vs. K-State Nebraska vs. Wyoming (+23.5)
Last Week: 2-0
Hate to go against a fellow conference member, but the K-State offense has shown me nothing to make me believe they can cover that number against a Miami team that looked very good last week against tOSU.
Illinois (-12.5) vs. W. Michigan
I'll be honest. I know nothing about this game, but Illinois has to be able to beat a directional Michigan school by at least 13 points right?
Last Week: 1-1
Huge trap game here for Nebraska as they travel to #6 Wisconsin the following week. Nebraska will either pull up to avoid injury before conference play or get caught in the trap and fails to cover the spread.
Last Week: 2-0
Central Florida (+2.5) at BYU
Count me in as a person who is totally unimpressed with BYU this season. UCF will keep this game tight and may win outright.
UCLA (+5) at Oregon State
The two worst teams in the Pac-10 square off in this one. The Bruins are really bad but even at that I don't think they're five points worse than Oregon State, even on the road.
Miami (-12.5) vs. K-State
Nebraska vs. Wyoming (+23.5)
