After 6 weeks of the picks Stoney is holding the lead with a record of 16 and 14. Bill has had a few good weeks and has a record of 13 and 17. Is this the week that Bill closes the gap. Take a look at their picks below and let us know.

Bill’s Picks

Michigan State + 10 1/2 at Michigan
The Spartans have been a bit of a letdown this year but they will definitely give Michigan a run for their money. Wolverines win but take MSU and the points.

South Carolina + 3 1/2 at Florida
Two good run teams, both with pretty good defenses also. But look for the Gators defense to shove the ‘Cocks down. Take the home team to cover, Florida.

Kansas State + 2 1/2 at West Virginia
RichRod University is looking to bounce back from a Texas Tech trouncing last week. QB Geno Smith is a beast! Over 2200 yards passing and 25 TDs already this year. Take West Virginia to cover.

Lions + 6 1/2 at Bears
Simple. Bears 13 interceptions and overall defense vs Lions erratic offense in Chicago. Take Chicago to cover.

Steelers -1 1/2 at Bengals
Big Ben is 7-1 at Cincinnati. Take the Steelers to cover.

Stoney’s Picks

Michigan State + 10 1/2 at Michigan
Can the Spartans make it 5 in a row against Michigan? Can they stop Denard Robinson for the third straight game? Can they go one game without dropping 5 or more passes? Because MSU’s defense is still good this will be a close game, but Michigan’s defense will be the difference. Michigan wins a close one.
PICK MSU + 10 1/2

South Carolina + 3 1/2 at Florida
The Cocks are coming off a tough loss to LSU and losing this week in the swamp is not an option. LSU’s defense is better than Florida’s, although the Gator’s offense is better than LSU’s. Steve Spurrier returns to Gainesville and leaves a happy ball coach
PICK SOUTH CAROLINA + 3 1/2

Kansas State + 2 1/2 at West Virginia
The Mountaineers were embarrassed in Lubbock last week. Kansas State gets no national love and with good reason. They are Kansas State. West Virginia returns home with all muskets loaded.
PICK WEST VIRGINIA + 2 1/2

Lions + 6 1/2 at Bears
Last season the Bears came to Ford Field on a Monday night and the Lions lit them up. The crowd noise was off the chain. Some see the Bears as the best team in the NFC right now. I am not willing to go that far, but I do think they win by at least a touchdown.
PICK BEARS – 6 1/2

Steelers -1 1/2 at Bengals
Both teams coming off horrific losses. Pittsburgh lost at Tennessee while the Bengals were beaten by the Browns. I always like home teams getting points.
PICK BENGALS + 1 1/2
