Yo, this is Nicky and we’re actually coming off a loss for the first time in almost five weeks, so we’ve been on a run and it’s time to get back into the win column so let’s get to it. Obviously we’ve laid off college football for a little while as we simply didn’t have a good feel for it and that’s when you need to do when the meal isn’t going down correctly, step away from the table for a while. That said, I do see some value on the board on Saturday and in the Pigskin Pick Em’ contest I’ve done better than 60% on Saturdays so I think we’re ready to tuck the napkin in again. In the late games I like Baylor (+10.5 buy it if you don’t get it) to keep it close against Texas if not win on the field for the third year in a row. I know Texas will be back at home after the Red River Rout last week but that mo’ will be gone after the first quarter and then the reality will set in that they’re just not that good. I know BU has lost some guy that used to play quarterback for them and now is playing on Sundays but they can still change the lights on the scoreboard. Texas is 1-4 ATS over the last 5 when playing Baylor, and only 7-14-1 ATS at home their last 22 games. True one can argue that Baylor is not a good road team (1-6 ATS) but that is a big number for a team to cover that struggles on offense and I don’t think the Horns’ have the firepower to outgun Baylor by two scores. That’s the chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up! View All of previous picks here.
