THE WEEK 7 SLATE | Jerrold Grubinski | RIPPY & JERRY’S PICK 6
Two and Four. Tough week, but you remember what happened the last time we had a 2-4 week…we followed with a 4-2 week. Alert Alert! I love this week’s games. Pull up a chair and pay close attention, time to make some money money moneyyyy.
Alabama @ Texas A&M
The Tide has played 2 SEC games so far. South Carolina and Ole Mississippi. The Alabama Defense has given up a lot of yards to these two below average offenses. I think the Aggies have the skill players to get vertical on the Tide. Kellen Mond did just that versus Clemson and LSU at home last year. Aggies will keep it close enough.
The Pick: Texas A&M +17
Penn State @ Iowa
Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City has been known to be quick sand for top 10 teams. If Iowa doesn’t beat them outright, they at least cover. The Hawkeye defense will hold up, Iowa just needs to get something going on offense. I like the spot at home at night.
The Pick: Iowa +3.5
USC @ Notre Dame
Last time out USC suffered a 14 point loss to Washington but had drives that ended on the Husky 1 yard line and 4 yard line with nothing to show for it. I don’t trust Notre Dame just yet, they will have to earn my trust in this one.
The Pick: USC +11
Arkansas @ Kentucky
Tomorrow is Jared Lorenzen day.
The Pick: Kentucky -6.5
Wyoming @ San Diego State
The total is at 38.5. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a total that low in a college football game.
The Pick: Over 38.5
Hawaii @ Boise State
These two teams like to score some points. I told myself if the total is under 60 then I gotta jump on it. Well, guess what…
The Pick: Over 59.5
The Big Rip of the Week
Oklahoma vs Texas
Oklahoma hasn’t played anyone. Texas hung with LSU. This should be a shootout (can’t say that), the Longhorn secondary is banged up and the Sooner defense isn’t very good. Ehlinger with a late rushing TD to seal the deal.
The Pick: Texas +310 (moneyline)
