Week 6 Picks

Iowa State (+28) @ #3 Oklahoma (68.5)

Joel: Iowa State +28, that line is just too high. I’ll take the over in a shootout, though.

Cullen: I’ll take Iowa State and the Under

Will: 28 points is a lot and Iowa State is not a complete pushover. Cyclones and the under.

Cory: OU/Under

Texas Tech (-17.5) @ Kansas (80.5)

Joel: Kansas plays Tech pretty well, so I’ll take KU +17.5. I’ll take the over in a high-scoring affair.

Cullen: Give me a Tech and the Over

Will: Tech and the under

Cory: Tech/Over

#23 West Virginia (+13.5) @ #8 TCU (68.5)

Joel: I’ll take WVU, and the under.

Cullen: West Virginia and the Under

Will: Too many points here for the mountaineers. WVU and the Under

Cory: West Virginia/Under

Kansas State (+3.5) @ Texas (50)

Joel: I’ll take Fighting Synders on the road +3.5, and the over.

Cullen: Texas and the Under

Will: K state and the over

Cory: KState/Under

National Game: #11 Washington St (-2.5) @ Oregon (61.5)

Joel: Interesting line here, considering the big win Wazzu had last week. I’ll take the Cougs to cover and the over.

Cullen: Washington St and the Over

Will: Ducks lost their starting QB last week against Cal and may even be down to their third string. Washington State and the under

Cory: Washington St/Over

Upset Picks

Joel: Minnesota +4 against Purdue, and the under at 46.5. The Golden Gophers get back on track and Row the Boat on the road to a win!.

Cullen: NC State over Louisville

Will: I’ll take Utah +5.5 at home over Stanford. The Utes have taken the last three in the series and are undefeated so far in 2017.

Cory: For the third week in a row Tulsa will face an option-based offense; that third time will be a charm as the underdogs will beat Tulane straight up.
