Hey bros

In a cash pick'em pool where we have to select 5-6 games a week. Just curious if anyone else is doing something similar and would like to compare our picks each week.

Right now, I'm thinking these games (my selection in bold):

Tenn

NCSU (+3)

Ohio

@PennState (-6)

FIU

@Duke(-3.5)

Miami, OH

@Ohio State (-23)

Miami (-1)

@BC

Also on the fence about:

USC (-6)

Vancy

Standford (-26)

San Jose State

Notre Dame

@Navy (+19)

It's my busy season this time of year and have a lot of stuff going on. 'Pretiate any comments/critiques/criticisms

So is this straight up or with the points?

Because I am not understanding Navy -19

Spread in play. No O/U.

EDIT: Yeah, the Navy was obviously a typo. Navy (+19) is the correct adjustment.

Ok in that case, I like the Navy +19 because they will slow the game down and frustrate ND with their triple option.

I like them all. The only one I'd personally have different would be Tennessee/NC State. But that's just me, your guess is as good as mine.

And Miami is only 1 point favorites wow.

I think the Miami game went up to 2 now, as expected the line fluctuates as we get closer to the game, but the points lock in the pool I'm in on Wednesday so everyone doesn't jump on the Thursday night game an hour before KO.

I honestly don't know what to expect with the 'Canes this season b/c they lost a lot of the offense - but BC was the worst fuging team in the ACC LY and there is no way in hell BC has better players than Miami.

I try to pick games where I'm at least familiar with the teams.

Another game I was thinking about was the Kansas State game. I forget who they are playing but KSU is at home and is laying 48 points. Man that's tempting ya know.

I don't hate the Irish but they are over rated every year and it seems like the past 4-5 years they've had a revolving door at QB.

I think you gotta give coaches 5 years in college FB before you can make a clear, educated assessment but Notre Dame is the exception. Very manic fan base. You gotta believe this is a make or break season for Kelly.

Yeah I know Miami isn't Miami but they still have better athletes. But like you said BC is just bad. And you'd think they'd be given more than a point. But good for you, you only have to take away 1 point.

I love me some Klein from KSU but damn 48 points.

And plus the starting RB and QB are out for the game in Ireland.

It's Brian Kelly by the way. He did good things with Cincy. I think he was a good hire and look at Cincy now. I just don't think HS players view ND like they used to.

Yeah I keep forgetting that game is in Ireland. Notre Dame has to be fan favorite there right lol? Something else to consider is the Navy players, if their not used to traveling over seas they are at least prepared for it when their FB career ends, Notre Dame players? uh, no.

Brutal 2-6 opening weekend.

Feeling a little more confident regarding my picks this week:

UNC (-9)@Wake - I honestly hate betting on my teams.

@Bama(-40) vs Western Kentucky

@Clemson(-28) vs. Ball State

@Ohio State(-17) vs. UCF

@Kentucky(-7) vs. Kent State

@TCU(-38) vs. Grambling

Also considered jumping on ECU + the points. Already breaking one of my personal rules taking the heels. No ECU this week.
