Here we go rolling into another week of Pick It and Stick It. The games are fresh this week and we are stoked about the upcoming Farmageddon happening right in Kansas City’s backyard. Kansas State is a 3.5 point favorite over Iowa State and we can imagine that Daniel Thomas is the reason for the line. Will we see the same outcome as last year? Hopefully it will be just as exciting. So far, Farmageddon delivers on quality. Here are the picks:
We talked about the first Big 12 match up of the year so let’s talk about the other. Texas heads to Lubbock to face Tommy Tubberville’s version of Texas Tech. The Longhorns failed to impress so far and because of that they are a 3.0 point favorite over the Red Raiders. We may see more defense from Texas Tech but we should also see alot of passing still. Whether or not Texas defense can make some stands is the big question. Tune in Saturday night to find out.
In the other parts of the Big 12, we start out tonight with Kansas heading to Southern Miss. They aren’t the favorite so they’ll probably win and cover. On the flip side, Air Force heads to Norman to take on Oklahoma and will be down 17.0 points on the spread. We’re thinking the Sooners will let them hang a little closer. Nebraska is only a 3.0 point favorite against Washington as we’ll see if the Black Shirts will lock out Jake Locker. The Baylor and TCU game will be much closer than the 21.5 point spread TCU has. The other Big 12 games are just lame enough to ignore.
Nationally, Denard Robinson takes his Heisman campaign to Massachusetts. The only other real interesting game up there is the Iowa Hawkeyes vs the Arizona Wildcats game. The Hawks take their Big 10 pummeling down to the steamy hot part of Arizona. The Wildcats looks tough but the Hawkeyes are tough. The game starts at 9:30 so if you’re up late tomorrow night, you’ll still be able to watch some great football. Set your picks today, though as there is a Friday game. Good luck on the picks.
