Mac Genius: Auburn plus 8.5

Vanderbilt-LesleyOver the last two years I have picked five games each week against the line to see how smart I is. I begin the season with $50 of Monopoly money and fake bet a $10 on five pro/college games. In two football seasons, I am +190!

2011: +110
2012: +80 (the Super Bowl pro bets bailed me out from a season of financial ruin and depression)

Last results: 3-2. Got my mojo back.
This season: 38-38-5.

Last week's picks
1. Duke v. Texas A&M (-12.5). JOHNNY FOOTBALL. LOSS
2. UNLV v. North Texas (-6.5). MEAN GREEN. WIN
3. Panthers (-6) at Falcons. PANTHERS. LOSS
4. Bills at Patriots (-8.5). GISELE. WIN
5. Chiefs at Chargers (-9.5). CHIEFS. WIN

This week's picks
1. Auburn v. Florida State (-8.5). TIGERS. Too many points.
2. Houston v. Vanderbilt (-1.5). COMMODORES. Hard to bet against SEC.
3. Chiefs (-1.5) at Colts. COLTS. Won't be shocked if Colts lose.
4. Saints at Eagles (-3). EAGLES. Home field.
5. Chargers at Bengals (-7). BENGALS. The jungle has been perfect.

I like the Saints to beat the Eagles. Brees has been there, Foles hasn't. Saints played a tougher schedule and had a better record at the end of the season. The Saints creamed the Cowboys, while the Eagles earned a tough split with Dallas. It will be interesting to see how Rob Ryan's defense holds up against Chip Kelly's high powered read-option offense. It's supposed to rain with temperatures in the low 40's at kickoff, so I think both teams could have a tough time with turnovers. In the end I like the playoff experience of New Orleans and Sean Payton as a big factor in beating Philadelphia.


My bad, I was looking at tomorrow's weather in Philly. Currently 26 degrees and dropping.

Colts will blow it.

Nice picture. Further proof the SEC is the best.
