Friday Locks | Week 5

We finally might be figuring some things out. Last week’s 6-3 record was our second winning weekend in a row and those season records are starting to look a little more respectable.

Last Week’s Picks

This Week’s Picks


Kentucky (+6.5) at Ole Miss | This will be a tough one for Kentucky but I think they are the better team despite playing on the road. I expect this one to stay close throughout the entirety of the game.

Michigan (-11) at Iowa | I’m not sure Iowa will be capable of scoring a touchdown in this one. So I’ll take Michigan covering 11 points.

NC State (+6.5) at Clemson | Clemson has looked far from impressive this season in my opinion. I think they will be on upset alert this week as NC State rolls into town.


UCLA (+3) vs. Washington | Two Top 25 offenses go head-to-head. The Bruins will have home field advantage, but they will also have the challenge for facing a very good corps of receivers from Washington. I think this will be close throughout and settled by less than a field goal.

Ole Miss (-7) vs. Kentucky | A pair of undefeated teams face-off in Oxford, Mississippi! The Wildcats will have a quarterback advantage over the Rebels but there are a lot of question marks about the Kentucky offensive line after seeing the struggles against Northern Illinois last week.

Michigan (-10.5) at Iowa | Michigan hasn’t won in Iowa City since 2005 but this Wolverines team looks to be playing on a different level than we’ve seen in quite some time. The defending Big 10 champs have been stingy with the ball (only two turnovers on the season) and are averaging 50 points per game. Iowa’s defense is only allowing 5.8 points per game but, even with that, I don’t see them being able muster enough offense to pull an upset here.


Oklahoma (-6.5) at TCU | The Sooners suffered a tough upset last weekend, so I think they bounce back with a big win in Ft. Worth against TCU.

Texas A&M (+4) at Mississippi State | I think the Aggies are still a bit overrated, but they should handle Mississippi State just fine. I’m not sure how A&M is the underdog.

Georgia (-29.5) at Missouri | Georgia might hang half a hundred on Mizzou. This is not going to be pretty for the Tigers.
