Stoney’s Picks

PAC 12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
Stanford -9 vs UCLA.

The Cardinal blew out UCLA last week and I think they will do it again Friday night in Palo Alto.
UCLA is 3-11 against the spread after playing a conference game the week before,while Stanford is 18-6 against the spread over the last two years.

PICK STANFORD

SEC CHAMPIONSHIP
Alabama – 7 1/2 vs Georgia

This should be a typical Georgia big game. They will hang in there and then fall apart in the fourth quarter.The Bulldogs are 1-8 against the spread as underdogs the last 3 years and the trend will continue
PICK BAMA

BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Nebraska -3 vs Wisconsin

The Badgers have lost their last two games, both coming in overtime. They also opened the Big 10 season with a 3 point loss to Nebraska in Lincoln. The Huskers are rolling and will continue to do so as they head to Pasadena.
PICK NEBRASKA

Lions -5 vs Colts

Detroit is 0-8 against the spread when playing against a team with a winning record in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons.Plus the Colts are still in the playoff hunt..I think the Lions win a close game.
PICK..COLTS

Cowboys -10 vs Eagles

Philly is flat out awful. They look like they have quit already,plus they are 1-9 against the spread in all games this season.
PICK COWBOYS

Bill’s Picks

PAC 12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
Stanford -9 vs UCLA.

These two played each other last week and Stanford crushed the Bruins. This time they’re at home, it could be worse.

Take Stanford to cover.

SEC CHAMPIONSHIP
Alabama – 7 1/2 vs Georgia

Both of these teams would love to face Notre Dame in the BCS title game. Alabama’s defense will be the difference maker.
Take Alabama.

BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Nebraska -3 vs Wisconsin

The Cornhuskers won their last 6 games while Wisconsin lost their last 3. Nebraska had to come back to barely beat the Badgers earlier this year.
Take Wisconsin and the points.

Lions -5 vs Colts

The Lions should have beaten Houston. The Colts are no Houston. If they can harrass Luck they should win.
Take the Lions to cover.

Cowboys -10 vs Eagles

Philly has been a disaster lately but the Cowboys are nothing to write home about either.
Have to take Philidelphia and the points though.
