Free Football Picks from FSR Blog writer David E(aka “The Pigskin Guy”)
2-1 in NCAA Football last saturday but continued my struggles early this NFL season with another subpar 3-3 week. Please note that I am NOT affiliated with the NSAwins.com professional handicapping division. Let’s get back on track this week. Here we go…

THE PIGSKIN GUY’S College Football Free Picks for Saturday, October 17, 2009
NC State +2.5 – BC got ripped to apart from pillow to post last saturday vs Va Tech. NC State is certainly no Va Tech but are good enough to go up to BC and win one for former BC coach and current Wolfpack big kahuna Tom O’Brien. Take the points as NC State will get it done.
Hawaii +8 Idaho is 5-1 but have been living on the edge only winning their last 3 games by a combined 9 points total. Look for a decent Hawaii team to hang close if not win outright.
Utah -16.5 – UNLV’s defense is A-W-F-U-L. Gave up 59 and 63 points the last two weeks to BYU and Nevada. Utah is certainly on par with those two teams and nothing I can see tells me that this game will be any closer than the last two weeks when UNLV got served by 5 TD’s plus both games. Lay the points.

Pittsburgh -14 – The Steelers have yet to play a FULL 60 MINUTES this season. They always seem to take a nap for at least 1 quarter a game and that’s why they are only 1-4 ATS this season. They are due to break out their “A” game and what better team to try and do it against than the pathetic Brownies.
Detroit +14 – I watched Green Bay’s act two weeks ago versus Minnesota and was not impressed. Sure, Rodgers is a pro-bowler and plays well, but that o-line for the Pack is beyond brutal. 14 points is more than enough to cover with a Lions team that at the very least plays HARD every sunday.
New England -9 – The Pats have got to still be pissed off about blowing that game last sunday in Denver. They have nobody to blame but themselves. They gave it away with hideous playcalling, bad play from Brady and stupid penalties. Expect them to take out their frustrations against a pitiful Tits squad this sunday.
Jets -9.5 – Back-to-back losses have finally quieted these dreamers that thought that the Jets were actually a CONTENDER this season. Puhleaze will ya folks? They are a step above solid(ie pretty good) and that’s about it. Having said that, the Bills are a step below bad(ie they SUCK). Lay the points as the Jets get back in the W column in a big time way.
Baltimore +3 – I’m not buying the Vikings as a juggernaut. Sorry, but exactly WHO the HELL have they BEATEN so far? NOBODY that’s WHO! Give me a break with this squad will ya? Baltimore is coming off two losses to quality teams(Pats, Bengals) and will be salivating to get back in the W column and give the undefeated Vikings a dose of hard nosed AFC football.

San Diego -3.5 – Calm down Donkey fans and everyone else don’t break your ankles trying to hop on the bandwagon. In case any of you forget the Donkey’s were 4-1 after 5 weeks last season. How did that end up? I’m not saying Denver isn’t better than last season(they are) but they still aren’t an elite team no matter what their record states. Teams will start taking them seriously now and their 1st reality check comes monday night in San Diego.
