Week 12 Football Picks!
Last week we went 3-3 overall for 50%, miss hitting on both A rated plays. The week started out slow uncovering picks - but over the past 24 hours we feel very good about this weeks slate:
Rutgers - Big Al’s POUNDER - Scarlet Knights have been explosive on offensive over the past 3 weeks, and the defense has shown the ability to clamp down. While Army offense has been sporadic at best all season. Cadets have Navy on deck… Rutgers needs the win to become bowl eligible. Our forecasting models forecast Rutgers to post 38-45 points, while Army puts up 13-17. With bowl eligibility on the line we see little chance of a letdown, and will call a 25 point win by the home team.
Maryland (ML)- HC Ralph Friedgren’s teams always seam to play well in big games against good competition - and this one against FSU is that. It ought to be a great one to watch. We’re getting some value on the Money Line, and we’re all about value - we’ll take the Terrapins to eke out a win with a 4% of bankroll play.
Mississippi State (ML)- The Bulldogs like HC Sylvester Croom, and will come to play. Arkansas has LSU on deck, and might be overlooking the scrappy Bulldogs. This is another contest where we’re projecting a tight battle, in the end we think Mississippi State comes out on top - pulling off the outright upset in their final home game.

Baltimore - Philly just doesn’t seem to have a pulse… despite getting manhandled at NY last week, the Ravens are playing inspired ball - and if the Eagles show up with a half hearted effort, they’re going to smacked around by the Ravens.
Kansas City (ML) - Buffalo is known for it’s ball control offense and tenacious defense, but we expect they’re may be some fireworks on the scoreboard here. KC is starting two rookies at CB, expect Buffalo to take advantage. But KC seems to have found a rhythm with their spread offense, and Buffalo has struggled on both sides of the ball. Very good value with the Chiefs on the money line.
Indianapolis (ML) - Colts offensive line has stabilized; the defense has shored up in the secondary. While Chargers still struggling on defense. We like Indy to win outright, with a 4% of bankroll Money Line play.
