Week three of out picks against the spread kept us winning as we went 4-2 with out losses coming from the Thursday night game as well as my hatred for Mizzou causing us a lose. But we still had a good week. We are shooting for a big money weekend and with some exciting matchups in both the NFL and college football we are looking to keep winning, our total record right now is 12-7!

North Carolina State -3 at Boston College, over/under 58
Boston College has won 3 games in a row in convincing fashion. North Carolina State has lost two games in a row to top ranked teams. Boston College can run the ball but so can NC State. Boston College will keep this close but ball control for NC State and a ferocious defensive line will cause trouble for Boston College all day. We see NC State by at least a touchdown.
Florida at South Carolina -7 , over/under 45.5
Florida is a dumpster fire on offense right now. They travel to South Carolina on Saturday, a South Carolina team that is 5-2-2 ATS this season. With Florida’s inability to score and interim head coach that doesn’t seem to care much about winning. Florida’s four straight losses will be five after Saturday. Bet early on this line all the action is going to go on South Carolina.
Pick: South Carolina -7
Michigan State vs. Ohio State -15.5, over/under 54.5
This is one of the most highly argued games at I Talk Sports and That’s It. The Buckeyes cost themselves a chance at the college football playoff after getting stomped at Iowa. We think the Buckeyes defense has been exposed and if they can’t stop the other teams offense JT Barrett will be useless. I don’t think we see Michigan pull off the upset in Columbus but I don’t think they lose by three scores.
Pick: Michigan State +15.5
New York Jets at Tampa Bay Buccaneers -2.5 , over/under 43.5
The Jet’s burned us last week causing our only lose for our normal picks. This week they travel to Tampa and we have been gifted a spread from the betting gods. No Winston, no Evans and know chance for the Bucs. Josh McCown is playing at a pro bowl level and the Jets defense has shown the ability to cause pressure on the Quarterback. The world fell for the Bucs thanks to their appearance on Hard Knocks, sadly realty has set in that this is just not a very good team. Maybe Jameis will give us another ridiculous pregame speech, that will be the only entertaining thing about this game for a Bucs fan.
Pick: New York Jets -2.5
Pittsburgh Steelers -10 at Indianapolis Colts, over/under 43.5
The Steelers travel to Indianapolis on Sunday and we see big money here. Colts just released their best corner Vontae Davis who was going to be out for the season anyway with an injury. Big Ben should shred this defense with Antonio Brown and Juju Smith- Shuster. Pitssburgh also has the speed on the defensive line to keep Jacoby Brissett in the pocket and force him to beat them through the air. If Pittsburgh keeps Brissett from using his athletic ability then they should be able to control the Colts offense.
Pick: Steelers: -10 (Parlay the over)
James’s “Why Not” Pick of the Week 1-2: Giants at 49ers
I let my hatred of Mizzou cloud my judgement in last weeks “Why Not” pick of the week, that brings my record to 1-2. This week I am going for a slight underdog San Fransisco is 0-8 and has been embarrassing all season. The only teams more embarrassing are the Cleveland Browns and their opponent on Sunday the New York Giants. The Giants have enter turmoil which can only be matched by the cast of the Jersey Shore. Even if the Giants didn’t have inner turmoil, this team is just not very good.
Why Not pick of the week: San Fransisco +2.5
Good luck on your bets this week and remember if you aren’t down a paycheck you can still bet.
