Weekend Predictions

We were all over the USC - Kentucky game last night. If you took my pick and bet the 'Cocks to cover, you've got a few more duckies this morning. Now that we're on a mini roll, lets see what we can muster up for Saturday's games. We will limit this to 5 games..... so here goes:

Georgia Tech (-3) at Maryland
Scary game.....Schizophrenic Tech vs. the up and down Terps. Both are coming off emotional upsets against ranked teams. Tech knocked of Clemson and Maryland beat Rutgers. History tells us Tech can rarely put great back to back games together and Maryland puzzles everybody. Tech does play defense and they have more athletes. Take the bees and the 31/2..... Georgia Tech 30, Maryland 24.

Clemson (-51/2) hosting Va Tech
Easy pick. Clemson, coming off a loss, will be very focused and very physical. Where is the Beamer defense we've all come to adore?
Clemson 31, Va Tech 21.

Florida (+71/2) at LSU) Sure have heard a lot this week about how well the Tigers play night....and at home. The AP poll has elevated the Tigers to a no. 1 status. Not good.....LSU is now the hunted........... They respond better when they're in an "us, against the world" mentality. Florida, coming off the loss, at home, to Auburn, have had their share of off the field trouble this week, thanks to safety Tony Joiner's early morning towing arrest. That said, Urban Meyer will have a scheme or two for this Tiger defense. And......................7 1/2 ????? LSU will win but not cover, LSU 19, Florida 14.

Georgia at Tennessee................Don't know why we're touching this game. The line started out with the Vols a 2 point favorite. As of today the dawgs were a 1 point favorite. Go figure. Georgia has owned Tennessee in Knoxville and the Vols have owned the dawgs in Athens. Tennessee is coming off a bye week and UGA is fresh off a win against Ole Miss. Usually, you like the team coming off the bye....but in this case, you have a young Dawg squad that is getting better by playing and getting experience. This will probably be a pick-em game by kick-off.
Georgia 31, Tennessee 27.

Ohio State (-7) at Purdue
The 'Eyes are quietly strolling under the proverbial radar. Ranked 4th and getting no respect. Purdue is undefeated, but this is where the Boilers exit the stage reserved for the big boys.

Ohio State 35, Purdue 17.
