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.
No. 23 West Virginia (8-3) at Rutgers (8-3) Line: Rutgers (-1.5) O/U: 44.5
WVU has won the last 14 games in this series and I expect them to win again today. Maybe this is a sucker bet but I cannot understand why Rutgers is favored in this matchup. Just 2 weeks ago Syracuse hammered Rutgers.
Pick: WVU in a romp.
No. 5 Cincinnati (11-0) at No. 15 Pittsburgh (9-2) Line: Cin (-2) O/U: 58
This game is for the Big East title and a BCS Berth. Pitt is coming off a (DW predicted)loss to West Virginia, I expect them to defend their home turf and upset Cincy.
Pick: Pitt taking the points but winning outright.
USF (7-4) at UCONN (6-5) Line: UCONN -7.5 O/U: 49.5
In keeping with DW tradition dating back about 8 weeks now, I'm going to take the UCONN game. I have no real basis for this pick, but f'it.
Pick: Huskies giving the points.
New Mexico State at No.6 Boise State Line: Boise -47.5 O/U: 58.5
Boise is going for a second straight 12-0 season today against New Mexico State, and my prediction is they come out on fire with the Fiesta Bowl on their mind.
Pick: Boise and the over. Blowout.
