Better Week 5. Finished at 10-6 and still a perfect 5-0 with Leo’s Lock. That equated to a $185 to the good. Add that to starting bank of $355 puts the total at a plus $540.

As the season rolls on it gets a lot tougher to pick losers especially with a lot of traditional rivalry games showing up on the schedule. Well, here goes for Week 6.

LEO’S LOCK

NCAA

Florida (+7) loses to LSU

After last week’s win at Missouri, Gator fans were thinking National Championship. I say let’s talk in November after they’re through the meat and potatoes part of their schedule and that starts this week at LSU. The Florida bubble bursts big in the Baton Rouge bayou.

LEO’S LOSERS

NCAA

CONNECTICUT (-2 1/2) loses to South Florida

Yes, I know USF doesn’t show up for the cold weather games but it’s going to be in the 50’s for almost all of this one so weather shouldn’t be an excuse. The Bulls have way too much speed for the Huskies and they’re playing for Coach Taggert’s job. South Florida in a close one.

MINNESOTA (-2) loses to Nebraska

Golden Gophers going through some off-the-field incidents that can’t help their on-the-field preparation. Plus, the Cornhuskers have lost four, yes four, games on the last play. Don’t look for it to come down to the final snap this week. Big Red comes up big in Minneapolis.

NFL

JACKSONVILLE (Pick) loses to Houston

Jags QB Blake Bortles looked really good last week in Tampa throwing four TD passes. That’s the good news. Bad news is he was sacked six times. Watt and Company will see and raise that total this week. Texans close in Jacksonville.

Kansas City (+4) loses to MINNESOTA

KC on the road and no Charles at running back. Vikes counter with a steady dose of Peterson toting the leather. That’s the recipe for a Minnesota win in a very low scoring affair in the Twin Cities.

Carolina (+7) loses to SEATTLE

Panthers are undefeated and Seahawks coming off a devastating loss in Cincy. Still, Seattle desperately needs this one and, if Carolina loses, they’re will remain tied for NFC South lead. Also, 12th man plays a big role in a close win for the home team.

LEO’S OTHERS

NCAA

Central Florida (+21) loses to TEMPLE
NORTHWESTERN (+2) loses to Iowa
Alabama (-3 1/2) loses to TEXAS A&M
Virginia Tech (+4 1/2) loses to Miami
Louisville (+7) loses to Florida State
Southern California (+6 1/ 2) loses to NOTRE DAME

NFL

Cincinnati (-3) loses to BUFFALO
New York Giants (+4) loses to PHILADELPHIA
TENNESSEE (-1) loses to Miami

LEO’S SPECIALS

NCAA

Boston College at CLEMSON (37 1/2)

It’s strength (Clemson offense) vs strength (Boston College defense) at Death Valley. Expect both groups to score points. Take the over but you’ll have to sweat it out in the 4th quarter.

Mississippi at MEMPHIS (+10 1/2)

Ole Miss is good but so is Memphis and they can score points in bunches. Tigers at home may not win but they’re stay within a touchdown of the Rebels so take the points.

NFL

Arizona (-3 1/2) at PITTSBURGH

Steelers coming off an emotional Monday night win against the Chargers in San Diego. That never bodes well for the next game and it’s with the Cardinals. Short week and long flight equate to taking Arizona and laying the points.

New England at INDIANAPOLIS (64 1/2)

Take the over. May hit there by half. Pats looking to pay back Colts for Deflate Gate. Indy looking to turn Andrew Luck loose after a few weeks off with an injury. All factors lead to a very high-scoring affair.
