The Degenerate Report: It’s​ Back

WARNING: If you came here for proper grammar and articulate writing, go read a book. This is Pick em season, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Hot Picks Only… but seriously come back next week for more.

Picking football games can be tough, and that’s why you turn to the Degenerate Report (won 64% last year). Unfortunately, we have not been producing the report each week this season at that our bad. If you have been listing to Trophy Kids though you will have heard some of our picks thus far. Starting this The Degenerate report is back. So we are locked in and ready to have some fun because let’s face it, we all have a little degenerate in us, and every once in a while we let it out.

Here are your picks for the weekend.

(If you want the audio version of this check out this week’s Trophy Kids)


No. 21 USC vs No. 17 Washington U -10 O/U 61: No conference is better at eating itself alive than the Pac-12. People will say the SEC beats up on each other and they aren’t wrong, but its usually top-notch teams beating up on each other. In the Pac-12 you have ranked teams like Washington St losing to a good for nothing UCLA team. This game is promising though and I really like this pick a lot.

USC is looking like a team finally turning the corner and starting to get there act together. I really like USC heading into last weeks game against Utah and that paid off big. The only problem is they are extremely banged up at QB. Yes, third-string Matt Finklike did come into last weeks game and win. That was against a Utah secondary that looked pathetic. This week he is going up a much better secondary in Washington.  I’ll take the experience over inexperience in this game.

Pick: Washington -10

Washington State vs No. 19 Utah -6 O/U 57:  Washington State last week might have had one of the most embarrassing losses in recent memory. These guys blew a 32 point by giving up 50 points in the second half to a terrible UCLA team. Absolutely pathetic but in spite of that I got to say I kind of like them this week.

Utah is banged up in all the wrong places. It looks like RB Moss will be out this week and QB Huntley’s is banged up but playing. The Utah secondary also looked terrible against USC third-string QB last week. I don’t know if you noticed but Washington State kind of like to throw the ball around the yard. I think Washington State comes out with a purpose this week, wanting to make up for the UCLA lost and thrashes Utah.

Pick: Washington State +6

No. 18 UVA vs No. 10 Notre Dame -11 O/U 48.5: This game is my favorite pick of the week. UVA has been winning me money left and right when I take them and I am taking them again this week. I actually smell a potential upset.

UVA has done 13-3 ATS in there last 16 games when facing a team with a winning record. They are consistently performing well when overlooked and even though they come into the game ranked 18, I definitely think ND is overlooking them here. ND has been getting a pass all week for losing to Georgia because they didn’t get the snot kicked out of them like they usually do by an SEC team.

The front seven for UVA is really good and I believe will give Ian Book problems. With UVA’s offense struggling, I think the under is in play but if the UVA D can keep them in the game, I think Bryce Perkins has enough in him to make a play or two to potentially upset.

Pick: UVA +11 

Mississippi State vs Aubrun -10 O/U 46.5: This pick is a gut pick for me. I don’t like the 10 points. I think that’s a big number for Auburn to cover but I have zero faith in Mississippi state due to some issues at QB. Auburn is a good football team who looked good at Texas A&M. I think Aubrun whens this game and even though I hate the number covers the 10.

Pick: Auburn -10

Should be a great week of football and may the picks be in your favor.
