Its time for our first weekly Stoney and Bill Show picks competition. Bill and I each make picks on five games.The listener decides who has the best picks. If he or she chooses the correct person they win a fabulous prize. Each week we will pick the Michigan,Michigan State,Lions,NFL Sunday Night games plus a featured college game.

Stoney’s Picks

College

-Michigan State -20 1/2 at Central Michigan…. The Spartans actually travel to Mt.Pleasant for a road game,which will feel and sound more like a home game. Look for the Chips to be fired up early,but in the end are no match for the green and white .I pick MICHIGAN STATE

-Michigan -21 1/2 vs Air Force……I like the Wolverines to win the game, but I think Air Force’s running option will keep the Falcons to within the point spread. I pick AIR FORCE

-Notre Dame – 14 1/2 vs Purdue..The Fighting Irish looked awesome against Navy. They won’t be as awesome this week. Purdue is going to be better than most people think .Notre Dame will struggle but win .I pick PURDUE

Pro
-Lions – 7 1/2 vs Rams.. This game scares the hell out of me. I don’t trust the Lions defense. Steven Jackson could run for over 100 yards and Sam Bradford could have a field day against the Lions secondary. The bottom line is the Lions have too much firepower. I see the Lions winning and covering with an add on score near the end of the game. I pick the LIONS

-Broncos – 1 1/2 vs Steelers. This is a playoff rematch in which the Broncos upset the Steelers. They did it with Tim Tebow so they should be able to do it with Peyton Manning shouldn’t they? The answer is yes .I pick the BRONCOS

Bill’s Picks

College

MSU/CMU…MSU (to NOT cover) 34-17 over CMU………CMU and the points                                                                                                    – MSU not impressive last week. Spartans will win but not cover the spread

UM/AF…UM (to NOT cover) 38-24 over AF………………AF and the points
– Same for Wolverines. They’ll win but Air Force offense might initially be a problem for Michigan.

Pro

Pur/ND…ND (to NOT cover) 28-20 over Pur……………..Pur and the points                                                                                                      - In this game of suspended QBs, look for the Irish to prevail.

Lions/Rams…Lions (to cover) 31-20 over the Rams…….LIONS
– Not buying into the ‘Sleeper’ moniker for the Rams.

Broncos/Steelers…Steelers 24-17 over the Broncos…….Steelers
– Either team could win this game (no kidding) but curious to see Peyton in his first real game.
