Pick It and Stick It: It Hardens When It Gets Cold

Chilly times are ahead folks and its time to wrap yourself up into some nice and tasty picks.  This week sees some hot action on the cold, cold fields of Lincoln, Nebraska.  Will Missouri continue to roll or be tripped up by the scrappy Cornhuskers?  No matter, we’ll be staying warm the best way we know.  Hot chocolate helps.  So does coffee or fried mac n’ cheese wedges.  I’ll probably have all this Saturday.  Grab your favorite warm-upper and check out the picks for the week.  Remember, he colder and longer the season goes, the harder the picks get.

Big spreads are the name and TCU is back in the game.  They have a whopping 35 point biggie over UNLV.  Nobody comes closer except maybe the Oklahoma rebound game and the Ohio State game.  Lest we forget that all bets are off for the Cincinnati vs Syracuse?  Yeah it will be a blow out.  On the smaller side of things we have just Georgia over Florida.  If it’s less than 3 it counts.

Over in Big 12 land we talked about the Tigers and the Huskers, with the latter getting a major 7.5 favorite at home.  It’s all on Missouri now.  Oklahoma State looks to rebound without drunk Justin Blackmon against bowl eligibility hungry Kansas State.  The Cowboys have 5 points in that one.  The only other exciting game I’ll talk about is the resurgent Baylor Bears being down 7.5 points against de-railed Texas.  I think the Bears cover and beat the Longhonrns.
