EhhTee's Picks (Week 9)

Last week was one of my better days. Sad when 4-3 vs. the line is one of my better days. In straight pick 'ems I did much better with 5-2. I even nearly nailed the GT v. UVA score.

This Week's Picks

Georgia Tech @ Vanderbilt
Line: Georgia Tech -13.5

Georgia Tech steps out into non-conference play before finishing their conference play. Tech is looking solid all around and I see no reason for them to lose this one but it'll be closer than the odds indicate.

Pick: Vanderbilt
Score: GA Tech 28 - Vandy 17

Duke @ Virginia
Line: Virginia -6.5

Duke is on a roll and is looking to become bowl eligible with two more wins. This would be the first time since 1994. Virginia can become bowl eligible with a win on Saturday.

Pick: Duke
Score: Duke 34 - UVA 15

USC @ Oregon
Line: USC -3.5

This one's the game of the week. Both teams are vying for the PAC 10 championship and a shot at the Rose Bowl. USC still has an outside shot of playing a week later for the national title. Will they survive? Or will Oregon dash the Trojans hopes... again?

Pick: Oregon
Score: USC 24 - Oregon 43

Texas @ Oklahoma St
Line: Texas -9

Oklahoma State stands as Texas's last big obstacle to the Big Twelve title and on to the national title game. Oklahoma St is down a few players and is rolling since a disappointing loss to Houston. Texas still hasn't proved to me that they are a top five team. It took Sam Bradford going down for them to seal the deal against Oklahoma despite OU giving them the ball like a hundred times. A win here might change my opinion.

Pick: Oklahoma St
Score: Texas 27 - Ok St. 37

Miami @ Wake Forest
Line: Miami -7

Miami's loss to Clemson was a shocker. I couldn't believe it and had to look at it twice when I saw it. This team reminds me of some Hokie squads we've seen. Winning huge and looking top ten like one week and losing big and looking like a bottom dweller the next.

Pick: Miami
Score: Miami 31 - Wake 18

NC State @ Florida St
Line: Florida St. -7.5

With all of the national hype over Bowden/Fisher controversy subsiding, Florida St. can once again focus on football. The Seminoles need to win out to be bowl eligible and I don't foresee them having an issue picking up this win.

Pick: Florida St.
Score: NC St. 17 - Florida St. 34
