Sharp Seven: Week 11

Last week: 5-3

Season total: 37-36 (51%)

The extra pick from last week comes with Baylor covering the over 7.5 wins I told you all about before the season started.. With just a few weeks left, I’m digging in as deep as possibly to get us over the 55% winners number by the end of the season so let’s get going…

Penn State (-6.5) at Minnesota.

PJ Fleck seems to be one of the hottest young coaches in the country right now but the hype train slows down this weekend. Fleck and Minnesota have feasted on a horrible schedule making their 8-0 record all smoke and mirrors. Penn State by 10 or more.

Baylor (-2) at TCU

Everyone keeps waiting for Baylor to slip up but I’m riding with Matt Rhule and the Bears until they prove me wrong.

UMASS at Army (-34)

Fade Walt Bell. That is all.

Louisville (+6.5) at Miami

Scott Satterfield quietly has Louisville at 5-3 on the season and has a chance to makes his Cardinals bowl eligible in year one which would be an amazing feat. They may not win this week but they should keep it close.

Iowa (+9.5) at Wisconsin

Look for your classic physical, low-scoring Big 10 game here. I can’t see either team winning by more than a touchdown.

LSU (+7) at Alabama

I don’t love picking this many road dogs but when a line sticks out, it sticks out. This line is more about the logo and venue of the game than the difference in the two teams. LSU is probably slightly better right now and they will find a way to keep it within a touchdown.

Florida State at Boston College (-2.5)

I think there are just too many things going against FSU right now. Boston College has a terrible defense, but have a lot of things going in their favor as I pointed out in my staff score prediction.
