All good things must come to an end. Finally lost Leo’s Lock but it took one of the worst officiating blinders of the season for it to happen.
That, along with a sub-par 2-3 week with Leo’s Losers, led to an overall loss of $295. Luckily, went 7-3 with Leo’s Others or the damages would have been worst. That leaves the bank after Week 9 at $1,135 and I’ll take that.
Getting into some serious contests the rest of the season with bowl and playoff implication abound. With that said, I’ll take a crack at the slate for Week 10
NEW YORK GIANTS (+7) loses to New England
The Pats are on a mission and they remember that the Giants ended their dream of a perfect season back in 2007 at Super Bowl XLII. New England big across the river from the Big Apple.
VANDERBILT (-3 1/2) loses to Kentucky
If the Commodores could have found a way to score three more points against Florida last week they would have muddied the waters for an SEC team in the playoffs. It didn’t happen but I can’t see them scoring more than 14 points this week. That means all the Kentucky offense has to do is find the end zone three times and I think that will happen. Wildcats win in a low-scoring affair.
North Carolina State (+9 1/2) loses to FLORIDA STATE
For the first time in a long time, the Seminoles are not playing a November ACC game that effects the future league championship. Still, look for FSU to have more firepower that NC State. The Chop prevails over the Pack.
OAKLAND (-3) loses to Minnesota
Yeah, I know the Raiders have looked good lately but the Vikes are really starting to come on. Bridgewater is starting to make plays. Not that Carr isn’t making it happen for the Silver & Black but he doesn’t have #28 to take the pressure off. If AP lined up in the backfield for Oakland my pick changes but he doesn’t. Purple People Eaters in a close one.
Miami (+6) loses to PHILADELPHIA
Birds are soaring after overtime win in the Big D last week. Fins are sinking after getting filleted up in Buffalo. Eagles can take over the lead in the NFC East with a win and Giants loss to the Pats. Look for both to happen. Philly by double-digits.
Jacksonville (+5 1/2) loses to BALTIMORE
Two teams having down years. Ravens beat up and Jags just not there yet. Home team prevails but not by much. Baltimore by a field goal.
Florida (-8) loses to SOUTH CAROLINA
SOUTH FLORIDA (+2 1/2) loses to Temple
Miami-FL (+13) loses to North Carolina
Memphis (+7) loses to HOUSTON
Texas (+8 1/2) loses to West Virginia
Arkansas (+7) loses to LSU
Oklahoma (+2 1/2) loses to BAYLOR
ARIZONA (+6) loses to Utah
Dallas (+1) loses to TAMPA BAY
TENNESSEE (+5) loses to Carolina
Alabama at Mississippi State (+7 1/2)
Take the points.
Clemson at Syracuse (57 1/2)
Take the over.
Detroit at Green Bay (48 1/2)
Take the over.
Arizona at Seattle (-3)
Lay the points.
