The first two weeks of the Stoney and Bill picks have been dominated by the non eye contact guy with bad posture. Actually dominated may be too strong, but Stoney has won the first two weeks, in part thanks to the correct pick in games involving the Pittsburgh Steelers. Well this could be Bill’s week since there are no games with any Pennsylvania influence.

Stoney’s Picks

Michigan State -33 vs Eastern Michigan
The Spartans are a ticked off bunch. Will they go after EMU assistant coach Mike Hart like an angry little bother? The big question is can MSU score enough points to cover the 33 if the Eagles are able to score a touchdown. I say no.
STONEYS PICK….EASTERN MICHIGAN

Michigan + 5 1/2 at Notre Dame
My favorite college football team against my least favorite team. I don’t see how my favorite team can stop the leprechauns running game.
STONEYS PICK..NOTRE DAME

Florida State – 14 1/2 vs Clemson
The Seminoles are coming off a 52-0 win against Wake Forest and have allowed 3 points the whole season. Clemson possesses an exciting offense led by Taj Boyd and Sammy Watkins. They will do enough to cover, but won’t win.
STONEYS PICK…CLEMSON

New England + 3 at Baltimore
Both teams are coming off close losses. Baltimore’s loss on the road to Philadelphia is certainly more acceptable than the Patriots home loss to Arizona. No matter what happens Sunday night, one of last seasons AFC title game will be 1-2 and I think it will be New England.
STONEYS PICK…BALTIMORE

Lions -3 1/2 at Tennessee
The Titans have been outscored 72-23 in their two blowout losses. They are playing for their season. Chris Johnson has publicly called out his teammates. The Lions are 0-2 against the spread and have not looked good in either game. I think both teams play much better and the Lions get the win, but I love me the home dog to cover.
STONEYS PICK..TENNESSEE

Bill’s Picks

Michigan State -33 vs Eastern Michigan
The Spartans are looking to cleanse the palate after last week’s loss to Notre Dame. Eastern Michigan proves to be the right sorbet… Michigan State

Michigan + 5 1/2 at Notre Dame
Seems like this game always comes down to the last possession. The Wolverines have won the last 3 by a combined 12 points. Brady Hoke will put Brian Kelly in a Sleeper Hold as Michigan wins a close one… Michigan

Florida State – 14 1/2 vs Clemson
Florida State has the #1 Defense in the country and have allowed a whopping 3 points, all season!… Florida State

New England + 3 at Baltimore
The Ravens will look to avenge last year’s defeat in the AFC Championship Game… Ravens

Lions -3 1/2 at Tennessee
Lions need to make a statement this game. Even though it’s on the road, they need to dominate the Titans or we may start worrying. And for God’s sake, get Calvin the damn ball! Lions
