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 game.
Syracuse (4-7) at Connecticut (5-5) Line: UCONN (-13.5) O/U: 47
You would think that this is a Connecticut Blog with the amount of times we have bet the Huskies. I watched them in person knock off the Irish in South Bend and I expect them to hammer Syracuse. The Cuse is coming off of their best game of the season and will let down. The Huskies have won the last 2 by an average of 24 points
Pick: UCONN giving
No. 12 Oklahoma State (9-2) at Oklahoma (6-5) Line: OK -7 O/U: 48.5
Yes that is the unranked team favored by a TD over the #12 team. Like I said last week, OK St is just not the same without start receiver Dez Bryant. Problem is that neither are the Sooners without Bradford. Don't like this game so I am expecting points.
Pick: Over the 48.5
UCLA (6-5) @ No.24 USC (7-3) Line: USC -13 O/U: 47.5
The crosstown rivalry kicks off this afternoon with USC having their lowest ranking since 2002..when they were 13th. I expect them to win this game, but the way their offense has been struggling I don't expect them to cover the number.
Pick: UCLA getting the points
No.23 North Carolina (8-3) @ NC State (4-7) Line: UNC -6 O/U: 49
UNC's 5th ranked defense should be enough to hold of NC State today, arguably the worst team in the ACC this season.
Pick: UNC in a rout.
