At this point I’m thankful you’re still following this weekly post, as my credibility is falling faster than RGIII on the BPS turf.

Here are last week’s results (I know, I know):

Contributor Last week Season
Kyle Porter 2-3 10-9
Aaron Schnautz 3-2 10-9
Carson Cunningham 3-2 9-10
OKC Dave 2-3 8-11
Guest 2-3 8-11
Justin Southwell 1-4 7-12
Matt Amilian 0-5 6-13

Mrs. Pistols went 2-3 and I went 0-5. I don’t know what else to say other than I’m embarrassed.

On to a new slate of games.

OSU +8 at TCU

OSU has failed to cover in its last 3 games (Texas Tech, Iowa State and Kansas). None of those lines seemed outrageous. Let’s not forget this is the same team that hung with Florida State and although Boykin is playing, he won’t be 100 percent.

The defense should keep us in it and it might take a special special teams play to do it, but I’ll keep riding Bullet.

Pokes +8

Baylor (-8.5) at West Virginia

Although we can always expect this, I don’t want to see this.

Pick: Mountaineers +8.5

Kansas State (+7.5) at Oklahoma

Pick: Kansas State +7.5

Kansas (+13.5) at Texas Tech

I feel like this is what my pick will look like no matter which side I take:

Pick: Kansas +13.5

Iowa State (+12.5) at Texas

I probably won’t dedicate much time to watching this one. I’ll roll with the Texas defense.

Pick: Texas -12.5

PFB picks against the spread

David Ubben, who undoubtedly hates your college football team, is our guest picker this week. He follows Big 12 football more than the rest of us combined.

Can he match up with the PFB pickers?[1. Ed. note: He can probably match up with you. My 10-month-old can match up with you.]
