Fithian’s Fab Five
All or nothing for Michigan State. Spartans have the defense and they beat em once already this season. That first game was an absolute classic. This one, I don’t think is as attractive of a game, but I do think MSU has a huge advantage in the coaching department. Too many times I’ve watched Bret Bielema make questionable coaching decisions with the game on the line. The last time I felt that way towards Bielema? The last time these two played.
Pick Spartans and the points: Wisconsin 30 Michigan State 24
SEC Championship game LSU spotted Arkansas 14 points last week and was still able to come back catch the Hogs and cruise by for the cover. This time the Tigers run into one of the best QB’s in the country in the Bulldogs Aaron Murray. Murray does enough to keep it close.
Pick Bulldogs and the points: LSU 31 Georgia 21
Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State Cowboys got a pretty good QB/WR combo but so do the Sooners.
Pick Sooners and the points: Oklahoma State 35 Oklahoma 34
Baylor Robert Griffin III still with an outside shot at a Heisman.
Pick: Baylor -3: Baylor 45 Texas 38
Rainbow’s getting eight points on the island? Got enough info
Pick Hawaii +8: BYU 42 Hawaii 38
The Superdome, Drew Brees on a role and the Lions banged up. It doesn’t always follow that the trends keep up in the NFL, but the way Brees is playing does hold up from week to week. Bad time to have a banged up running game, secondary and a suspended Suh.
I don’t see any way the Lions can stay close in this one barring a Brees injury.
Pick New Orleans 45 Detroit 35
Jets -3 v Redskins I’ll go with the better team and the low number
Pick: New York 20 Washington 14
Colts +21 Pats sometime the number is just too big not to take it maybe dip it
With the over/under 48
Pick: New England 31 Indy 13 under 48
