For Informational Purposes Only

I just got home from an extraordinary dinner at Chops. For those of you that don't live in the A, you have to make it to Chops when you are in town. The bone-in ribeye is outrageous. That being said, I'm never more on my game than after gorging on steak and creamed spinach. So, without further ado, here's the picks that will push me over .500 for the season (I'm all over the favorites in college and the dogs in the NFL):

COLLEGE

1) Ohio St. -11 @ Northwestern

2) Wisconsin -9.5 @ Indiana

3) Michigan St. -9.5 v. Purdue

4) Michigan +8 @ Minnesota

5) G. Tech +4 @ UNC

6) Rutgers -14 v. Syracuse

7) Louisville +6 @ Pitt

8) Texas -27.5 v. Baylor

9) Georgia @ UK OVER 45.5

10) Arkansas +13 @ South Carolina

11) Wyoming +27 @ Tennessee

12) Kansas +1 @ Nebraska

4) Seattle +8.5 @ Miami

5) Green Bay @ Minnesota UNDER 44.5

6) Buffalo +4 @ New England

7) St. Louis +9 @ N.Y. Jets

8) Baltimore PICK Houston

9) Oakland +9.5 v. Carolina

10) K.C. +15.5 @ San Diego

11) NYG +3 @ Philly

12) San Fran +9.5 @ Arizona

For the record, I don't think I ever remember a week this late in the NFL season with so many big under dogs. To say I'm nervous about grabbing so many points would be a huge under statement.
