Picking football games can be tough, and that’s why you turn to the Degenerate Report. After three years of finishing with a minimum 60% winning record, I am back at it again, trying to deliver wins. 

  My record on the year is 18-11-1, not too shabby.

The College slate is a stinker this week, but picks have to be made. On picks last week on Trophy Kids Podcast, I went 10-5. Make sure you are checking out Trophy Kids Podcast for our weekly NFL and College Football show. 

 I got my eyes on lots of football this past weekend and am ready to come back and give you a great six-pack of picks for this week. 

Here are my picks for the weekend.

College Football:

Oklahoma State vs. Texas -3.5 O/U60.5: We talked about this on the pod this week, so if you know, you know… Oklahoma State defense is overrated!! They have played nobody. The offenses they have played stink, and yes, they are good, but Texas is a different beast. I am not too worried about a letdown spot because, unlike the other conferences, Texas is still very much still in the hunt for a championship. It’s the two best teams that play in the Big 12 ship, so that should keep them motivated. 

Pick: Texas -3.5

Kentucky vs UGA -21.5 O/U44.5: I am going to not overthink this game. I love Stoops and what he has done at Kentucky. I have been talking about this program for years on Trophy Kids. This is a bad spot for them. Kentucky has to run the ball to get the offense going, and Georgia is elite on defense. You can run or throw on them. The offense is cooking with gas call it a day.  

Pick: UGA -21.5

Pitt vs Va Tech +5.5 O/U 55.5: I have been on the wrong side of Va Tech every time this year so take this with a grain of salt. I hate this weeks board. I was having a hard time finding three college picks, but I am going with Pitt here. I like what they bring from a consistency standpoint, and I’m done with Fuente’s coaching at Tech. 

Pick: Pitt -5.5


All these picks were talked about in length on Trophy Kids Podcast, so good to listen to get the insight!

Jags +3

Over 55.5 for Chiefs and WTF game

Browns -3.5

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