The Degenerate Report: College Football Week 12
The Degenerate Report is back after another strong week. I went 5-3 in all picks given out. That includes picks in the Degenerate Report and on Trophy Kids twitter account. The season might not have started off great this year, but I’m mounting a comeback and have climbed to a 30-20 record on the year. In college alone, I’m 28-16. So why mess with a good thing? I’m going straight gut picks again this week.
I am 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 my picks for the weekend.
(make sure to take a listen to Trophy Kids Pod every Wednesday and Friday)
MSU vs. Michigan -14 O/U 45: Big brother vs. little brother game is back again, but this year big brother is looking a lot bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter. MSU has been riding the school bus all year long, and I don’t think they plan on getting off anytime soon.
The MSU offense is horrible, and the defense is wishy-washy. Some weeks they look like warrior spartans and others they can’t stop a nose bleed. Michigan, on the other hand, has been playing good football down the stretch. Michigan seems to have turned the corner starting a couple weeks ago in the second half of the Penn State game and continues to build steam. I think Big brother is going to remind the little brother who runs the house.
Pick: Michigan -14
Lock Of The Week
UGA vs. Auburn +3 O/U 40: Georgia is ranked 4th in the College Football Playoff Rankings is a joke, just like this line.
A couple weeks, ago I said Florida would be the game Georgia would start to click on offense and the defense would continue to show its legit. While that happened, in my opinion. The passing game started to get going a little as the young wide receiver core started to click while creating space, and Jake Fromm made the right decisions. That will be key facing Auburn.
Auburn is a good football team that unfortunately has to rely on a shaky freshman quarterback. Bo Nix might eventually be a great Aubrun quarterback but that isn’t happening this week. Georgia’s defense is going to feast this weekend.
Pick: Georgia -3
Ohio State vs Rutgers 1st Q +13.5: The game spread is at 53.5 which is a big number. So I took a look at the half spread and 1st quarter and I have to say they look great. Ohio State loves to come out guns blazing and Rutgers is terrible. Rutgers can probably score some garbage time points scares me off the total game spread but 1st quarter I love it.
Pick: Ohio State -13.5
Arizona vs Oregon -27 O/U 68.5: This game screams points, points, points. Arizona’s defense is a leaky as an old faucet. Oregon is going to exploit that all day long. On the other side Oregon has a good defense but Arizona brings a good offense to the game as well. I think they will be able to score on this defense enough to push us to the finish line.
Pick: over 68.5
