Pigskin' Pick'em: NCAA Week 6, NFL Week 5 Picks

Bobby CashContributor IOctober 2, 2008

Ok so I know I haven't been on here the whole season but I still like to make my picks of the week.

So with no further adue here we go...


NCAA

I'll take Penn State -13.5 at Purdue. Purdue gave up way to much on D to ND to make me even think they can contain the Lions' potent offense.

Give me Indiana + 6.5 at Minnesota. The Hoosiers were able to put up points on Sparty last weekend and Minnesota is in one of those years.

I'm going to go with Michigan State -7.5 vs. Iowa. If they keep feeding Javon Ringer then Michigan state should roll on. Although their defense hasn't shown me enough, yet.

My upset special (although I wouldn't call this an upset) is Illinois +2.5 at Michigan. The Illini have Michigan's achilles heal and that is Juice Williams. Illinois bounces back at the big house.

With Beanie back I'm going with Ohio State -1.5 at Camp Randall. The maturation of Tyrelle Pryor shows under the lights but he will be helped immensely by #28 in the back field.

My final pick in the NCAA stays in the midwest. I'll go with Ball State -7.5 @ the Glass Bowl against Toledo. Nate Davis is legit at QB and Ball State is the class of the MAC.

NFL

I like the Colts off of a bye week at Houston -3 points.

I'll take the Bears -3.5 on the road at Detroit.

Upset special is the 49ers at home +3 against the Patriots.

And the Monday night game I'll go with the Saints in the Superdome -3 vs. the Vikings.

There are my picks. Check back Tuesday to see how we did. Also, coming on Tuesday an analysis of the MLB playoffs so far.
