Can Stoney make is 2 in a row?

Thanks to a perfect 3-0 record in the collegiate ranks last week, Stoney snapped out of his funk to defeat Bill in the weekly picks. We will see how the early games this week will affect the dynamic duo’s prognostication power. Just in time for the holidays Stoney is using only against the spread trends to make his picks.

Stoney’s Picks

MSU -7 1/2 at Minnesota

The Spartans need a win to be bowl eligible, they are 1-8 ATS as favorites this season ,while the Gophers have covered their last two games against the Spartans.
PICK MINNESOTA

Michigan +4 at Ohio St

The Wolverines are 6-15 ATS against teams with winning records while the Buckeyes have covered the last two years against Michigan and have a record of 148-107 ATS over the last 20 years. I would love nothing more than to see Urban Meyer lose his first Michigan game but it won’t happen.
PICK OSU

Cowboys -3 vs Redskins

The Cowboys ATS (against the spread) are 2-10 in their last 12 home games and 5-14 ATS against conference opponents. The Redskins are 4-0 ATS vs Dallas in their last 4 games.
PICK REDSKINS

Patriots -6 at Jets

The Patriots are 14-5 ATS in the road games,44-24 ATS in their last divisional road games and a whopping 76-53 ATS in road games with six or less days rest.
PICK PATRIOTS

Lions +3 vs Texans

The Texans are 19-8 ATS in their last 12 games, but 4-13 ATS in domes in their history. The trends for the Lions are not too good. They are 0-8 ATS against teams with a winning record,24-48 ATS in weeks 10-13 and 32-54 ATS in November.
PICK TEXANS

Bill’s Picks

MSU -7 1/2 at Minnesota

Michigan State has been a letdown this year to say the least. They need this win to get a bowl bid, unfortunately I don’t think it’s going to happen.
Take Minnesota to cover.

Michigan +4 at Ohio St

The Buckeyes could finish their season with a perfect 12-0 record but of course, no matter what happens Saturday in Columbus, the season is over. Will Michigan employ the Gardner/Robinson backfield again? I hope so…
Take Michigan and the points.

Cowboys -3 vs Redskins

The Cowboys may have their hands full with RG3 but I think Dallas will cover at home.

Patriots -6 at Jets

The All-American Boy Tom Brady has eleven TDs and zero interceptions over his last four games BUT, no Gronk this week. The Jets took the Patriots to overtime last time they faced each other. This is a tough one…and I may regret this but I’m taking New York and the points.

Lions +3 vs Texans
Seriously???…take Houston to cover.
