DWDW College Style

Dirty Wudders Degenerate Wagering is a feature of this blog where the three contributors embarrass themselves picking the college and pro games of the week. Here are our picks for Saturday's games.

Namesake’s Picks:

Boston College(5-2) @ Notre Dame(4-2) Line: ND (-7.5) O/U: 55.5

Boston College has won the last 6 meetings between these two schools, but I have a feeling the Irish are going to avenge themselves this year. Jimmy Clausen has been playing like a future pro, and coming off a tough loss last week I expect him to come out firing. I’m taking the Irish.

Pick: ND giving the points

No.8 Iowa(7-0) @ Michigan State(4-3) Line: MSU (-1) O/U: 42

I think Iowa’s luck runs out this weekend. Their bid for a BCS bowl goes out the window with a loss to Michigan State, and I’m all for it. MSU is no powerhouse, but I think they get it done at home. Screw Iowa.

Pick: Spartans

Doc's Picks:

No. 1 Florida (6-0) at Mississippi State (3-4) Line: Miss St +23 O/U: 50

Florida has not been as dominant this year, in part because they lost Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen to Miss St. Mullen was coordinator on 2 Nat'l Championship Gator teams and coached Tebow to the Heisman.

Pick: Bulldogs covers

Connecticut (4-2) at No. 22 West Virginia (5-1) Line: WV -7.5 O/U: 46.5

UCONN's first game since corner, Jasper Howard was tragically killed last week. Connecticut will have the emotional edge not to mention I think they are the better team.

Pick: UCONN taking the points

No.8 Iowa(7-0) @ Michigan State(4-3) Line: MSU (-1) O/U: 42

I do not understand the love Vegas is giving Michigan State.

Pick: Iowa


Namesake: 7-5
DW: 5-5
Sec: 4-6
Doc: 5-9

Agree with the picks? Disagree? Post your own picks below.


  1. Michigan +4 vs PSU:
    Anyone who knows me knows I am not a PSU fan but that is not my reason for the pick here. I like Michigan at home here. Similar to when they played ND at home (painful game for me)

    Oregon-9.5 @ Washington:
    Oregons been playing some pretty good football, which makes Boises opening win vs them all the better for Boise.

    Kansas/Oklahoma over 55.5: Oklahomas backup to Bradford isnt that bad, both teams should put up 27+

    Iowa-2 @ Mich St:

    Agree with above, dont get this line which means MSU probably wins but take Iowa @ -2 . MSU seems to get good lines @ home.

    Miss St +22 vs Fla
    Florida is battling sickness, injury and have not been as dominant b/c of this. Three touchs are alot. Take the Miss St

    Temple-2.5 @ Toledo
    Temple has been playing pretty well, this is a tough spot for them but not a huge line, it wont be long before a big time program comes chasin Golden

    BYU+3 vs TCU

    This is strictly a gut pick, I think TCU is due for a bad game and Im picking it to happen here. If BYU controls the ball and time of possession they could win outright

  2. UConn covers - rare college win for me

  3. PSU's O looks as good as I have seen this season, 10-7 Penn State 2:30 left 1Q

  4. fuckin Iowa takes the lead with .02 left

  5. Looks like Blair is going 3-3-1. Join the mediocrity

    He gave himself bad odds on the Iowa game

  6. N'sake - 0-2

    Doc - 3-0 unless miss st blows it.
