THE DEGENERATE REPORT: COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 8 AND NFL WEEK 7 PICK
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 for the year is 20-15-1.
I am not going to lie; the college board has been a tough one to read this year for me. I have managed to stay positive here, but overall, it’s been rough on Trophy Kids. On the other hand, the NFL I have been rolling, so that means over the next couple of weeks, college football is getting my full attention.
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.
(If you want the audio version of this, check out this week’s Trophy Kids)
Utah vs Oregon State +2.5: Look if you have been listing to Trophy Kids, you know I have a future on Utah and last week was a huge win for them. This team is never out of a fight, and in Cam Rising, we trust. I would love this game more if it were at home for them, but I do think this is a hold on to your butts; we are heading to hell type games and I like Utah in those spots.
Pick: Utah -2.5
Syracuse vs Va Tech -3.5: Syracuse is my all-time favorite calling my shot team. This program over the last three years has made me the most money and given me some of my most satisfactory ATS wins (mostly against Clemson). I am calling on them again this week. VA Tech has been my enemy for a while. I have been on the wrong side every time until last week. Both these teams are incredibly similar, but Syracuse has that fight in them. That place deep in their guts they can go to when it’s late to keep it close.
Pick: Syracuse +3.5
LSU vs Ole Miss -7.5 O/76.5: Poor Coach O. The man had one of the highest of highs not that long ago and now is on his funeral tour. Now that might motivate the boys to go out and play their ass off or not. I don’t know but what I do know is that LSU has found its balance. This is a team that is strong running the ball, and that works perfectly for this game. Ole Miss D parts like the red sea when it comes to defending the run. That means the clock will stay rolling, and with Matt Corral banged up, I think the under is in real range (which I hate saying)
Pick: Under 76.5
