2008 NFL Week 5: Monday Night Winning Picks – Two Way Action

Greetings folks. Rough weekend for your’s truly, but RPJ laid another winner. I love tonight’s match-up, and I like my chances of making a strong comeback with two picks for you. Here it goes:
 
Minnesota @ New Orleans (-3); OVER/UNDER 47: The Vikes riding into the Crescent City fresh off their tough loss to the undefeated Titans. The Saints are riding high after their beatdown of the 49ers. What will give? To me, the key to this game is the Saints D, or lack thereof. They cannot stop anyone. They have given-up an average of 25 points per game, and their schedule has not been exactly tough. With the exception of Denver, they have not faced a team with an explosive offense (Tampa, Washington and San Fran). That is too many points to give-up against those teams. This means a HUGE day for Adrian Peterson. He will steamroll this defense and put the Vikings over the hump. FACTS: Saints are 1-15 ATS after scoring 28 or more points in back-to-back games against teams that are less than .500 and the Saints are 1-11 ATS at home against teams that are off an away game. I’m taking the Vikings +3
 
I also like the Under in this one. Common sense would say take the over because the Saints cannot stop anyone. However, the Vikings can. Despite giving up over 20 points per game, their D is much better than people think. The Titans game was a fluke, and they showed what they are really all about by holding the Colts to 18 and Carolina to 10. The Saints will be without Colston, Patten and Shockey. This will hurt them tremendously. The Vikes will ground and pound with Peterson. This game will be low scoring. I’m taking the UNDER 47.
 
Good luck with your picks.

2008 NFL Week 5: Free Winning Picks and the sad end of Matt Millen

We had a nice week last week with a combined 6-1 record. Here is how we stand on the season:

RPJ $yndicate is 5-7
Flash is 3-1
Runny is 8-8

We started our NCAA season a little slow and now are on a roll and the NFL is starting to gear up as well. So lets kick off this party with some hot delicious Keyra Augustina ass…..

Hello Perfection!!!

Hello Perfection!!!

A little more to the left please....Pretty please!!!!!

A true work of Art!!!!

RPJ $yndicate picks

San Diego at Miami (+6.5)– Miami is already starting to show signs of The Parcells Plan. Bill is a football genius andhas turned around every single team he has gotten his hands on. This is not a tale of ATS numbersbecause it favors the Chargersin a big way with one exception…Chargers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings. This is an interesting matchup and favors the Dolphins in a lot of stats that we look at. The Dolphins have a better running game, a better run defense andhave learned how to limit turnovers. San Diego has not looked good on the road. They had to come from behind against Denver and could have won andthey had to come from behind against the Raiders andwon. This does not bode well as a trend and Miami will be able to limit San Diego’s touches. We think Miami can keep this game close and we are debating a straight moneyline bet. We are not betting the moneyline yet but we think the Dolphins will certainly cover. Take the Fins and the points.

Atlanta at Carolina (-9.5)– We normally hate big spreads but we love betting against one dimensional teams on the road. Stop the run and you stop the Chiefs. Even the Raiders won in KC by shutting down LJ. Lets look at the ATS numbers:

Kansas City
Chiefs are 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Chiefs are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win.
Chiefs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games on grass.
Chiefs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 5.
Chiefs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
Chiefs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Carolina
Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in Week 5.
Panthers are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass.
Panthers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.
Panthers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

We think this lines up well for Carolina and we would not be surprised to see a 20 point win. Take Carolina to cover!!!

Pittsburgh at Jacksonville (-5)– I wish this line was -3.5 or less but I still think the Jags can win by a TD. Jacksonville really has gotten to Big Ben, sacking him 11 times the last two times they played and Big Ben has been sacked almost 4 times a game this year. Willie Parker is out, Mendenhall is out, Kendall Simmons is out, Casey Hampton is out and Brett Keisel is out. That is way too many outs for Pittsburgh. The ATS numbers:

Pittsburgh
Steelers are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games in Week 5.
Steelers are 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 games in October.
Steelers are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
Steelers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games on grass.
Steelers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. AFC.
Steelers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win.
Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games.

Jacksonville
Jaguars are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
Jaguars are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 5.
Jaguars are 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Jaguars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October.
Jaguars are 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Jaguars are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
Jaguars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss.

Head-to-Head
Home team is 15-5 ATS in their last 20 meetings.
Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
Steelers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Jacksonville.

I think the Steelers are facing too many injuries and are traveling to Jacksonville. Teams that play on Monday Night and then play on the road in their next game lose outright more than 70% of the times. I will take those odds and the ATS numbers. Jacksonville wins and covers!!!

Flash Flash Picks

Chicago at Detroit (+3.5)– This is a fascinating game but mostly it is a new beginning for the Detroit Lions. The Lions finally rid themselves of the WR happy Matt Millen. It was so fun to have Matt Millen around because that made Al Davis feel like his retarded decisions actually belonged in the NFL.

The ATS numbers:

Chicago
Bears are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games following a S.U. win.
Bears are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a bye week.
Bears are 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Bears are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on field turf.

Detroit
Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week.
Lions are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

Head-to-Head
Underdog is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

I think the Lions get their first win of the season in this game. The fear is that the Bears will run up and down the field and that is a concern but I think that concern was addressed during Detroit’s bye week. Remember, the Lions are loaded at WR thanks to Matt Millen and they will rise to the occasion to honor their fallen comrade. Take the Lions and the points and if you have some extra scratch around throw a little down on the Moneyline.

Runny Picks

Tennessee @ Baltimore (+3): This game is a little tough to handicap, but I think the Titans cover. Tough giving any points to a Baltimore team at home. They are ridiculous on D. However, Flacco is not ready. The Steelers exposed him last week. The Titans have a better D and they will pressure Flacco just like the Steelers did in the 2nd half of their game last week. Plus, the Titans are just more balanced. It will be a close game-definitely a battle of great D’s, but the Titans pull out the cover. Take the Titans -3.

Colts @ Texans (+3): The Colts are banged-up and playing like it. Although they are coming off the bye this week, I don’t think it matters. Peyton is off and as great as he is, he won’t get on the right track until he gets more playing time. The Texans almost beat the Jags last week. They put-up points on a much better J’ville D. They will do the same this week. I love them getting points. Take the Texans +3.

Patriots @ 49ers (+3): Another home Dog. I like them, too. Pats are off the bye, but they have major problems. Cassel will be good (eventually), but the 49ers have a good D. They can keep this game close. Plus, the Pats have NO run defense. That is music to Frank Gore’s ears. He will have a huge game. Pats will win, but 49ers keep it close. Take the 49ers +3.

As always, good luck.

Week 6 2008: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

Colin had another tough week last week going 2-3. He is now 13-10-1 on the season. He also got the Ohio State game wrong last week. Not gonna bust on him this week and we will see what he says his record actually is. We are keeping track though so we know what is up and can keep our readers informed of any shenanigans. He just gave his picks and did not even say what his record was. Pretty funny stuff and he made fun of himself. Here are his Wheel of Genius picks:

Oregon at USC Trojans (-16) – Oregon won last year and USC certainly remembers the game. USC has won 25 straight night games at home and Pete Carroll will have his team ready to play. They lost last week and know they need to dominate to get back to a BCS title game. Oregon is playing without Justin Roper and will be playing a young QB. The Herd hates young QBs on the road. USC wins 44-24.

Florida State at Miami (minus a couple) – This is FSU’s first road game and they are playing with a young QB. Herd hates young QBs on the road. Miami has a great run defense and will force FSU to pass and force FSU’s young QB to pass and into mistakes. Miami wins 24-13.

Kentucky at Alabama (-16.5) – The HErd actually thinks this line should be higher. Kentucky is 0-19-1 against the Tide in Alabama. The Tide stunk in the second half of Georgia and Saban will be in their ears all week to play hard for a complete game and then they can rest next week on their bye. Kentucky has a young QB and will be playing on the road. Alabama wins 37-13.

UCONN at UNC (-7) – UCONN RB is great but their starting QB is hurt and out for 6 weeks. Young QB on the road getting his first start in a night game. Score should be low but UNC covers and wins 28-17.

Ohio State (-1) at Wisconsin – This is The Herd’s pick of the year so far. Wisconsin is in the middle of a brutal 3 game stretch. Wisconsin’s passing offense is 80th in the nation and Ohio State still has the 12th rated defense even with the USC washout. Ohio State D does not struggle against immobile QBs. Ohio State dominates and wins 27-17.

Week 6 NCAA Free Football Picks (10/4/2008): Redemption – The Backwoods Southern Lawyer Picks SEC Winners

Well the Backwoods Southern Lawyer wilted under the pressure last week posting a 1-3 record. He sent me the following email and is back for another week…..

An off weekend brought yours truly dangerously close to .500 for September. The philosophical question for college football fans after last week is whether Ole Miss’ upset of Florida shows that the SEC is strong top to bottom or just weak at the top….. and while you ponder that, chew on these picks for this week:

Take FLORIDA (minus 24) at ARKANSAS. After last weekend’s setback against Ole Miss, Tim Tebow gave a teary-eyed apology to the Gator Nation and swore: “But I promise you one thing: a lot of good will come out of this. You have never seen any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of this season, and you’ll never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of this season. And you’ll never see a team play harder than we will the rest of this season. God bless.” I, for one, believe him. Even though Florida is banged up and Arkansas is due to show up sometime (and I am loathe to give away 24 in any SEC match-up), I just have a feeling that Florida will take out their frustrations on the hapless Razorbacks and roll to a 5 TD victory.

Take OLE MISS (minus 2.5) vs. SOUTH CAROLINA. I usually look for teams to bounce after emotional wins like the one Ole Miss had over Florida last week, but I think this is a tale of two teams going in opposite directions. Ole Miss is a couple of plays away from being 5-0 right now. They’ve been re-energized by their new coach and the team and fan base is starting to believe (especially after last week). South Carolina is starting to wonder whether Spurrier is what they thought he was when they hired him, and the switch to Andy Garcia, while necessary, may cause some growing pains. I look for Ole Miss to win by 9+ points.

Take KENTUCKY (plus 15.5) at ALABAMA. The vogue pick this weekend is to take Alabama because Kentucky hasn’t played anyone, ‘Bama is the hottest team in the country and Saban is better than Bear Bryant, Vince Lombardi and Jesus put together. However, I’m here to tell you my friends that Kentucky is a quality club. They beat Western Kentucky worse than Alabama did, and Alabama threw in a stinker after their big game with Clemson, just like they might do this week after their big win in Athens. I think Kentucky battles valiantly and keeps it within 2 TDs.

TAKE AUBURN (minus 4) at VANDERBILT. Yes, Vandy is 4-0 and Auburn is 1-4 ATS this year, but the fact remains that one team is Vanderbilt and the other is Auburn. Order will be restored in the SEC this weekend, and Vandy will realize that any school with incoming freshmen averaging 1,400 points on their SAT scores has no business atop the SEC East. Besides, Vandy’s strength is in its running game, which Auburn will stuff. Auburn’s offense is due for a break out game and will find a way to put at least three scores on the board. I like Auburn by 10.

That’s the night the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Don’t trust your soul to no back woods Southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hand

Bonjour Mes Amis,

Backwoods Southern Lawyer

NCAA WEEK 6 2008: THURSDAY NIGHT DELIGHT (10/2/2008)

Greetings folks. I’m riding solo on the Thursday night games as Flash wasn’t feelin’ the games. First, here are our season stats: RPJ $yndicate is 18-15-1, Flash is 5-3 and I am 13-14. I need to pull my weight!!! No better time than now to get back over the Mendoza Line. Here is what I like tonight (3 games total):

Pitt @ S. Florida (-13.5): I must admit that this is my least favorite pick of the 3 I’m giving tonight. Pitt has been such an enigma his year-they have not covered at all this year and they have not looked great in their wins. South Florida has been just as strange-they have only covered once, but they have looked good. Their win over Kansas was impressive. Pitt does not have a similar win.

The keys to this game are location and QB play. South Florida has huge advantages in both. This is a lot of points, but I think South Florida is up for it. They like the Thursday night spotlight. They have a much better coach and George Selvie is ridiculous. I think they cover by a 1/2 point. Tidbit: South Florida is 6-0 ATS as favorites of 5 points or more against teams they beat the year before. Take South Florida -13.5.

Memphis @ UAB (+3): I like this game. Battle of C-USA rivals that are playing for a bronze statue of ribs!! How can you beat that?!?!?!?! I can’t think of a better thing to play for!!!!! Facts: Memphis is 3-14 ATS as favorites of less than 10; UAB is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 against Memphis (4-0 in their last 4 at home) and 9-0 ATS as underdogs of less than 10 off straight-up losses against teams off a straight-up win. Plus, UAB’s schedule has been pretty impressive (Tulsa, @FAU, @Tenn, Bama State, @ South Carolina) and they have covered 50% of the time in lined games. We like them getting points at home. Take UAB +3.

Oregon State @ Utah (-12): I like this game a lot, too. Oregon State is fresh off their HUGE upset of USC last week. It could have ended USC’s chances at a BCS championship. We’ll see. They looked damn good last week. Utah has been just as impressive all year. I predict that they will be in a BCS Bowl game this January. They will do well. Will Oregon State do the same thing they did to USC last week? I don’t think so at all. They caught USC sleeping. USC was not prepared and they took it right on the chin. Utah has seen what they can do, so there will be no surprises. Plus, this game is not in Corvalis. Utah pounds them. Here are some facts: Oregon State is 1-7 ATS against non-conference teams that are .500 or better; Utah is 9-1-1 as home favorites of 11 or more. Utah rolls. Take Utah -12.

As always, good luck.

NFL WEEK 4 2008 PICKS: MONDAY NIGHT MADNESS!!!!!

Greetings folks. As a group, we went 6-0 yesterday on our picks. That’s right…6-0!!! You can’t beat that and we knew we would recover. We are about to go 7-0 and this is what I like:

Runny Pick

Ravens @ Steelers (-6): Flash is not rollin’ with me on this one. This game did not pass one of his models, but I feel very good about it with mine. Another great Monday Night match-up of two bitter division rivals. These teams play each other hard and usually knock the snot out of one another. Both teams limp into this one with the Steelers being banged-up on the offensive side and the Ravens being hobbled on D. What will give?

There are two things that stand out to me about this game. The first is that this is Joe Flacco’s first road start. He hasn’t left Baltimore yet, and he is about to be thrown into the fire. The Steelers will give him a ton of looks he has never seen before. Flacco has looked good, but this game is different. He is not going up against the Bungles and the disappointing Browns. My take is never trust a rookie QB in a rivalry game on the road on Monday Night.

Which leads me to the next thing that stands out: the line. For bitter division rivals that pound each other, this line is huge. The Ravens have the league’s best D. They are 2-0 and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 against the Steelers. No way this line should be that high. However, it is and it yet again points to VEGAS KNOWS!!! I think this game is a trap. I’m not falling for it. Take the Steelers -6.

Good luck with your picks.

2008 NFL Week Four: Free Winning Picks and Chicks

Greetings folks. A decent, but not good, Week Three brought us back a little closer to respectability. However, we know we have a ton of work to do to right the ship. Our NFL season records are as follows: RPJ $yndicate is 3-7, Flash is 2-1 and Runny is 5-7. Still pretty bad, but we ain’t stopping!!!!

Well in keeping with tradition, when we blow we show more picks of hot chicks:

I have a spare hand if you need a replacement!

I have a spare hand if you need a replacement!

I just saw Transformers and I want to transform her panties into my face!

I just saw Transformers and I want to transform her panties into my face!

Here is what we like this week:

RPJ $yndicate Picks

Cardinals @ Jets (-1): The Cards looked awful last week against a Skins team that we think is pretty overrated. The Jets were just as bad against a hungry Chargers team on Monday night. What will give? The key to his game is the Cards and their road woes. They are terrible on the road. They have studs on offense and a decent D. There is no reason they should be Dogs in this game (or their last). Also, look at these facts: Jets are 11-1 ATS as home favorites vs. opponents that are .600 or better and 12-2 ATS off of Monday Night games. Nuff said. Take the Jets -1.

Falcons @ Panthers (-6.5): Don’t be fooled by the Falcons. Although they are 2-1, their two wins were against terrible teams (Lions and Chiefs). Their sole loss was a beatdown against the Bucs. The Panthers are more like the Bucs than the Lions and Chiefs. They will win, and when they win at home they are 44-8 ATS. Also, never take rookie QBs on the road. Take the Panthers -6.5.

Runny Picks

Chargers @ Raiders (+7.5): This pick pains me because I like Lane Kiffin and I think the Raiders are better than they get credit for being. I just don’t think they have enough this week, despite the fact that the Chargers are traveling off of Monday Night (if you are a reader of our blog, you’ll understand the reference and stat). Facts: Raiders are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 at home against the Chargers. This is a lot of points, but Rivers is the best QB in the league right now. Take the Chargers -7.5.

49ers @ Saints (-4): The Niners are off of a dominating win last week at home. They are young and their D seems to be on the right track. However, I am not sold on J.T. O’Sullivan. Plus, they re going on the road against a Saints team that can do some damage on offense. Facts: Niners are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 against the Saints and under Nolan, the Niners are 2-13 SU and 4-11 ATS away against non-division teams. I love the Saints in this. Take the Saints -4.

Bills @ Rams (+8): The Rams are lost and Linehan has lost this team. Players are openly stating that they don’t want to play for him and Trent Green is getting the start this week. Terrible. The Bills are loaded and are playing well. Facts: Rams are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 against the Bills and 0-12 SU and 2-10 ATS against inning teams under Linehan. This will be bloody. Take the Bills -8.

Flash Flash Picks

I should be 3-0 and I am not bitter about it or anything. I love the backdoor but I hate backdoor covers.

Only one pick for me this week and that is Redskins (+11) at Dallas. This is too many points and I live the ATS numbers.

Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win.
Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
Redskins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
Redskins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC.
Redskins are 21-8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Cowboys are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Cowboys are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC.
Cowboys are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC East.

Head-to-Head
Redskins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
Underdog is 17-4 ATS in their last 21 meetings.

I do not think the Skins will win but I think they are playing better and can keep this within ten points. Take the Skins with the points!

As always, good luck with your picks.

Week 5 2008: Colin Cowherd’s Wheel of Genius NCAA Football Picks

Colin went 1-3 last week and is now 11-7-1 on the season. we mean no disrespect to The Herd, we know he is capable of some awesome weeks and we also know he is capable of lying about his results. He said he was 11-4-2 last week when he was really 10-4-1. We intentionally list all of his picks so you can see for yourself.

The Herd’s Wheel of Genius picks of the week are:

TCU (+18) at Oklahoma – TCU won 5 of last 6 vs. Big 12 and is 11-2 in their last 13 versus BCS schools. TCU D is a beast and is ranked #1. Oklahoma wins but TCU will play very hard. Score prediction Oklahoma 28 – TCU 17

Miss St. at LSU (-23.5) – There is one thing that is certain and that is LUS blows out Miss. St. Every year. Score prediction is LSU 30 and Miss. St. 0

Alabama at Georgia (-7) – Georgia is wearing black but that could work against them. Georgia also has the best QB between the two teams. Bama has two advantages. 1) They are 4-0 with 4 easy wins so they did not reveal their playbook and 2) they are 9-9 on 3rd down conversions of two yards or less. Saban never loses by 7 points or more. Score prediction is Georgia 23 – Alabama 20

Purdue at Notre Dame (-1) – Notre Dame faced no crime in losing at Michigan State. Young offense plays different home versus away. Purdue really means Purdon’t in big games. Score prediction is Notre Dame 28 – Purdue 20.

Illinois at Penn State (-16) – Illinois has a bad defense and really bad pass D. This is a revenge game for Penn State. Penn State starts fast and this will make Illinois get down and the game will get out of control. Penn State wins 36-14.

This is not a Wheel of Genius pick but he threw it in as another game. Said Ohio State will destroy Minnesota.

Week 5 NCAA Picks: Runny’s Revenge!!!!

Tough start to the week for me with two losses on Thursday night. USC completely self-destructed and flushed any national championship hopes down the drain. Tulane imploded as well. Freakin’ terrible.

As promised, here are my additional picks for the week:

Wisconsin @ Michigan (+6.5): No. 8 Wisconsin rolls into the Big House this week to face their first Big 10 test. Both teams are coming off rest. It should be a good game as these teams always play each other tough. I think Wisconsin covers in this one, but it will be close. The Big House, surprisingly, is not that big of a home field advantage. For that many fans you would think it would be insane. However, if the visitor gets on them early, it will be deadly and the crowd is gone. Facts: Wisconsin is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 against Michigan and they are 8-2 as road favorites before back-to-back home games. There are impressive numbers that would suggest Michigan will win this game, but this is a new Michigan team. They do not have the players to run Rodriguez’s offense, and their D could not stop Notre Dame. That is huge. I like Wisconsin to ground-and-pound here and win by 7. Take Wisconsin -6.5.

Colorado @ FSU (-5.5): FSU lost their first game last week. It just so happened that it was the first good team they faced. They face another good one his week as the Buffs roll into town for a prime time game Saturday night. Which FSU team shows? I think it is the one that lost outright to Wake last weekend. I think they are posers and way too overrated. Colorado is not. They are getting better and better each week. I love their QB and they have better coaching right now. FACTS: Colorado is 11-2 in away games against opponents that are .600 % or better that are coming off of a straight-up, ATS loss the week before. That is FSU my friends. I’m rolling with the Buffs! Love the points, too. Take Colorado +5.5.

Illinois @ Penn State (-16): This games scares me a little because Penn State is rolling right now. They clearly are the cream of the Big 10 crop. They are destroying teams right now. Illinois has been inconsistent, mostly due to their QB play. Juice Williams is turning the ball over at an alarming rate. Very scary for the fans down in Champaign. However, they are coming off of rest this week, and they beat Penn State outright almost a year ago to the day. Facts: Illinois is 7-1 ATS as double digit Dogs off of straight-up wins, Penn State is 1-3 ATS in their last 4 against Illinois (1-3 ATS in their last 4 at home, too) and they are 0-5 ATS against conference teams they lost to the year before after they play a non-conference game. The numbers point to Illinois. I think the logic does, too. They held Missouri within 10 earlier in the season. Penn State has similar explosiveness. I think Illinois can keep it close. I’m taking the Fighting Illini +16.

There you go. Three more picks. Also, we have a new contributor. His name is BSL and he is an expert on all things SEC. He posted his SEC picks in another post.
