Evil Bill O’Brien’s Weekly Pick Six To Go – Week 9

After a 3-3 week, I need to re-evaluate things.  1.  Never pick Temple to win a big game.  I should have known better even though it was my upset special.  2. Texas A&M is not a team to rely on.  They can get to big leads, but they blow them and their coach is overrated and nowhere to the level of Evil Bill.  I won Florida, Oregon and Michigan but also lost that WVU game.  I took a shot at WVU and their overrated coach on twitter Saturday night.  Funny how the early season media darling coaches are all overrated.

Cincinnati (+4) at Louisville

I think this is a big game, or at least it would have been had Cincy not lost to Toledo.  Again, EBOB made a negative fashionable by losing to a MAC school.  For PSU, losing doesn’t impact our bowl game, but these coaches don’t realize this and just want to copy the master.  Louisville is overrated, but they will win this at the Papa John’s dome.

Louisville 34 Cincy 24

Michigan (-2.5) at Nebraska

I probably should have lost on my Michigan pick last week because if Brady Hoke had any integrity, he would have forfeited a win with 4 FGs and 0 TDs.  Of all the B1G coaches, Hoke doesn’t bother me yet, but that is probably because PSU rarely plays Michigan.  Pelini, on the other hand, would be better served at a Circus than a sideline.  Michigan is a hard team to figure out but I think the running QB will out do the shot putting QB

Michigan 24 (8 FGs) Nebraska 16

Florida (-6.5) at Georgia

I think Florida is going to lose, but I am just not sure again if this is the week.  Much like ND last week, I can see a struggle here, but I think they will win.  Georgia is a mystery to me because I just don’t watch them play.  They have not matched with my schedule all year so I am picking blind here.

Florida 26 Georgia 18

USC (-6.5) at Arizona

As always, I was tempted to pick this as my upset special and again, I just can’t.   I think Kiffin will get outcoached as always, but I think USC will overcome a few fumbles from their star transfer and pull one out.

USC 33 Arizona 29

Notre Dame (+9) at Oklahoma

Buck stops here for ND.  After some squeakers, Oklahoma looks like they have recovered from their early loss and are ready to stomp some leprechauns.  If ND only had a LB as good as Mauti.

Oklahoma 27 Notre Dame 17

Upset Special

Oregon State (-4) at Washington

Washington was my upset special earlier this year vs. Stanford and have done nothing since.  Mike Riley is getting pub for Coach of the Year and that needs to end, much like the Todd Graham nonsense from last week.   I need that ridiculous list to thin out so only BO’B is left standing.

Washington 34 Oregon State 31 (OT)

Season Record 33-14 (4-4 on Upset Specials)

    Penn State would be better served at a boy scouts convention then even be competing in CFB

      Nobody bets against Nebraska. People learned their lesson when they took Ohio State -25 and it pushed. Always take the Huskers.

        If you want to bet against Nebraska, you can get 3 points easily.

    • PSUMatt2005

      First of all, it’s +2.5, and second, how do you suppose your defense is going to stop a running QB. I mean, you handled the last one you played SO well.

      • slightmist

        I agree, the line is +2.5 Michigan, which is why I hope he is not giving 2.5 points.
