I chalked up last week as successful in picking the Big 12 games, going 7-2. And how about Ashton Lampkin with that pick-6 to put that total at 56 when the over/under was at 55?

I picked the under and that’s why I don’t gamble! (Okay, maybe a $1 parlay here and there for fun).

With the Pokes off this week, we’re not getting into any prop bets, but I selected a handful of games for some of the PFB contributors to pick, as well as a couple guests.

Picking with me this week are Aaron Schnautz, Justin Southwell, Carson Cunningham, OKC Dave, Pistolsguy himself, and guests Kevin Davis and Brad Freshour.

Let’s get to the games.

Kansas State (+9) vs Auburn

Schnautz: Kansas State
Southwell: Kansas State
Carson: Kansas State
OKC Dave: Kansas State
Pistolsguy: Kansas State
Davis: Auburn
Freshour: Kansas State
Amilian: Kansas State

Schnautz: The mad scientist could just pull this one off. K-State in the upset of the week.

West Virginia (+7.5) vs OU

Schnautz: OU
Southwell: West Virginia
Carson: OU
OKC Dave: OU
Pistolsguy: OU
Davis: OU
Freshour: OU
Amilian: West Virginia

Holgs

Amilian: It has just occurred to me I am picking Dana Holgorsen over Bob Stoops in a head coaching match-up. I’m not as confident now. Oh well, for all of burning couches, WVU to cover.

East Carolina (-2) vs UNC

Schnautz: East Carolina
Southwell: East Carolina
Carson: UNC
OKC Dave: UNC
Pistolsguy: UNC
Davis: UNC
Freshour: East Carolina
Amilian: UNC

Freshour: At least I don’t have to worry about UNC players being able to read this…ECU -2

Bama (-14.5) vs Florida

Schnautz: Bama
Southwell: Bama
Carson: Bama
OKC Dave: Florida
Pistolsguy: Bama
Davis: Bama
Freshour: Florida
Amilian: Florida

Davis: How does Will Muschamp still have a job?

LSU (-10) vs Mississippi State

Schnautz: LSU
Southwell: LSU
Carson: LSU
OKC Dave: Mississippi St
Pistolsguy: LSU
Davis: Mississippi St
Freshour: LSU
Amilian: LSU

I also had everyone pick Florida State (-20) vs Clemson but when the reigning Heisman winner gets suspended, betting lines seem to be irrelevant.

He’s an idiot for yelling what he did, where he did, but is it worse than stealing? Maybe Florida State has a policy of not suspending Heisman hopefuls for any games with a spread less than 20?

Any guesses on what the OSU-Texas Tech line will be next week?

My guess: Cowboys by 12.5
