EhhTee's Picks (Week 14)

One might say I should be crying for mercy at this point. Another subpar set of picks this week. Okay. One last shot before the bowl games. Maybe I can redeem myself.

Last Week's Results:

This week's Picks:
Alabama vs. Florida
Line: Florida -5

This is it. The game we've been waiting for all season. Quite frankly this might be the national championship game in itself. I'd be contradicting myself if I didn't say Alabama will absolutely crush Florida in this game.

Pick: Alabama
Score: Alabama 42 - Florida 13

Nebraska vs. Texas
Line: Texas -14

I really wouldn't want to face Mr. Suh this time of year. The Nebraska defense is firing on all cylinders. Can the Nebraska offense play well enough to win this game?

No but Nebraska beats the spread.

Pick: Nebraska
Score: Nebraska 17 - Texas 24

Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh
Line: Even (O/U 57.5)

They're calling this even so I'll bet the O/U here. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh have two potent offenses. As we saw in the Illinois game Cincy's been struggling on defense.

Pick: Over
Score: Cincy 45 - Pittsburgh 37

Georgia Tech vs. Clemson
Line: Georgia Tech -1

Almost a pick-em. Both teams disappointed the ACC by losing to two very poor SEC teams. (Georgia may be our opponent in the Chic-Fil-A (PEACH!!) Bowl). I'll be very angry if Clemson wins because GT is clearly the better team and the better team to represent the ACC in the BCS.

Pick: GT
Score: GT 31 - Clem 24

Houston vs. East Carolina
Line: Houston -1

Not a lot of choices here but add neutral site and the fact that ECU fans are a little bit looney (in a good way) and will go anywhere.

Pick: ECU
Score: Houston 14 - ECU 35

West Virginia @ Rutgers
Line: WVU -2.5

Rutgers has already lost to lowly Syracuse. WVU is coming off a huge win against Pittsburgh. Rutgers only based on home field.

Pick: RU
Score: WVU 21 - RU 24

New Mexico St. @ Boise St.
Line: Boise St 46.5

Boise goes undefeated. Totally screws up BCS. We wish.

Pick: NMSU (Only because the line is so ridiculous)
Score: NMSU 13 - Boise 52
