I am back to post my FREE NFL and College Football picks once again this year on the blog. Had a great NCAAF season last year winning 63% of my plays here on FSR but treaded water in the NFL winning just 53%. Let’s try and get both over 60% this season. Let’s go…
THE PIGSKIN GUY’S Free Football Picks for Saturday 9/18/10
Utah St +3.5(College) – Johnny Public loves Fresno St in this matchup but like ESPN’s Lee Corso likes to say, “not so fast my friends!”. The Aggies are not bad and have beaten Fresno two of the last three meetings in Utah. This spread has come down from an opening number of 5 despite the public being over 60% on Fresno so I am liking this play even more. Take those points.
Virginia Tech -20(College) – The Hokies are 0-2 and guess what? The East Carolina Pirates are going to get their cans kicked because of it. Va Tech is too good and too ticked off to not come out and cream an overmatched ECU team today. Virginia Tech will lay the wood by 5 plus touchdowns.
Boise St -23.5(College) – The Broncos are serious about making an undefeated run and getting into the BCS Championship Game despite naysayers nationwide saying their schedule is too soft. The only way they can get in is by completely dominating every team on their schedule. It starts today with an easy rout over Wyoming. Lay the points.
THE PIGSKIN GUY’S Free Football Picks for Sunday 9/19/10
Jets +3(NFL) – The entire universe is loving New England this week against the Jets and their anemic offense. Not the PIGSKIN GUY! No sir, the PIGSKIN GUY loves to go against the grain and this game is the perfect oppurtunity. Big rivalry game, Jets needing a win and the Patriots playing on the road for the 1st time after they were AWFUL away from home last season. New England has to prove it to me before I hitch my wagon to them as road chalk.
Dallas -7(NFL) – The Bears should have lost last week but they won’t have any problem losing this week. They will be out of the game early. Dallas coming off of a tough opening loss at Washington will lay the wood on an overrated Chicago outfit in Big D.
Detroit +6.5(NFL) – It’s going to be a long year in Philly if the plan is to have Mike Vick leading the troops. Ya ya, he’ll wow the masses with an extraordinary play here and there, but at the end of the day he is still a running back playing the QB position. Detroit should be 1-0 but are 0-1 like usual. I like them to give Philly all it can handle and maybe even win outright this week.
Baltimore -2.5(NFL) – The Bengals went 2-0 against the Ravens last year and 6-0 in the division. If it brings the same act it brung last week in Foxboro this week against Baltimore than it will find itself 0-2 and having a nice look up at Baltimore the rest of the season. Well, guess what? That’s what is going to happen because Baltimore is geared up for a Super Bowl run and Cincinnati looks to be on it’s way to being one of the NFL’s biggest dissapointments this season.
Green Bay -13(NFL) – The Packers lost Ryan Grant for the season but that won’t be an issue this week against another AWFUL version of the Buffalo Bills this 2010 season. How does ANYONE actually fork over their hard earned money to pay for Buffalo tickets in upstate New York? God bless those poor souls who have nothing better to do than watch TRASH play football every sunday in the cold. Green bay romps at Lambeau this week.
THE PIGSKIN GUY’S Free NFL Picks for Monday 9/19/10
49ers +6 – Like my red hot colleague Stephen G. said in his weekly picks post, I have to fade Johnny Public in this spot. Every down and out gambler will be looking to ride the Saints monday night to recoup their sunday losses and this line just looks like a trap. The 49ers will come to play and keep things close.
