The Kid comes (arguably) roaring back to secure the week 5 victory and all the spoils that go therewith.

Current Standings

Chris: 3-3, 18-12 overall

I_S:    3-3, 16-14 overall

KidB:  3-2-1, 14-15-1 overall

Chris' "Less Than Stellar" Picks:

Arizona State (+4.5) vs. UCLA - UCLA won 62-7, making this arguably the worst pick of all time. 0-1.

Nebraska (-20.5) vs. Illinois - I don't know anything about the Illinois twitter account but the football team is beyond sad. Nebraska wins 45-14. 1-1.

Maryland (+4.5) @ Indiana - This was a good pick only because he stole it from the kid.  2-1.

Duke (+7) @ Miami - "Coach Cut is good enough I'd take this line at +1.5".  Bahahahaha.  Miami wins 22-10. Terrible pick.  2-2.

Auburn (-32) vs. Louisiana Tech - How much is 45-17?  Anybody?  Garbage pick.  2-3.

Notre Dame (-9.5) @ Syracuse - this was a good pick only because he stole it from the kid.  ND rolls 31-15.  3-3.

KidB's "Free Money" Picks

Maryland+4.5 over INDIANA:  37-15 Maryland = Free Money.  1-0.

Baylor-21 over IOWA STATE: Baylor 49-28 = almost Free Money.  1-0-1.

Bowling Green-4.5 over UMASS:  Bowling Green wins 47-42 = Free Money.  2-0-1.

Florida State-18.5 over NC STATE:  Florida State wins 56-41 - borderline Free Money but not quite there.  2-1-1.

Notre Dame-9.5 over SYRACUSE: See above. Free Money.  3-1-1.

TAMU-9 over Arkansas: TAMU wins 35-28 = very close to being Free Money.  3-2-1.

I_S's "Garbage Milos Raonic Quality" Picks

Memphis +19.5 over Ole Miss. Ole Miss wins 24-3 and secures the cover as well.  Terrible pick. 0-1.

Akron +20 over Pittsburgh. A rare good pick as Akron wins outright over a conference not named B1G.  1-1.

Kent State +27 over Virginia. Leave it to I_S to make the weird headscratcher picks.  UVA wins 45-13.  Clear coverage. Garbage pick.  1-2.

Milos_raonic_2013_rg_medium

Minnesota +11.5 over Michigan. Another good pick from I_S as Minnesota wins outright over dogtrash Brady Hoke.  2-2.

USA -4 over Idaho. At least he knows to bet against dogtrash Idaho.  They, of course, got crushed.  A rare unterrible I_S pick.  3-2.

Toledo -15 over Central Michigan. Who even takes this game.  Oh yes, I_S does.  Toledo wins 42-28, clocking in a MOV of a mere 14 points, making this another pure trash I_S pick.  3-3.
