Thursday… time for some picks

It’s Thursday, which means the first games of the week are starting, so that means it’s time to look forward to the weekend ahead. Here goes nothing…

Pitt over Tenn – The champs are too much for the Titans at home
Baltimore over KC – KC-Matt Cassel=uh-oh
Atl over Miami- Matty Ice will prove to be too much for the Fins
Cincy over Denver – Ochocinco scores 2 tds minimum
Philly over Carolina – The Panthers are usually good at hom and I still don’t buy into the philly hype, yet I’m still picking Philly here
Houston over Jets – Sanchez game one – enough said, I’ll take the supposed surprise team of the year
Indy over The Fighting Jacks – even with a completely revamped coaching staff, surely Peyton and company will have enough to beat the Jags
NO over Det – Detroit is really bad
Dal over TB – TB is really bad
G-Men over Wash – Giants at home easy pick – should be more than motivated to prove they’re the best in the NFC again
Ariz over SF – Even though the Cards didn’t do to well in the preseason – it’s just preseason, who cares? Warner will be ready and so will Fitzgerald
GB over CHI – Aaron Rodgers+Frozen Tundra= win
Sea beats STL – Hasselback is back and has a new weapon in Houshmandzadeh
NE beats Buffalo – blowout victory no question about it – can’t you see TO already beginning to ruin the Bills?
SD beats Oakland – The Raiders are still the Raiders, which means the Bolts win easily

Survivor
Baltimore

Now to the NCAA – I will choose random games each week I feel are worth picking.

GT over Clemson – had to pick the Thursday game, Paul Johnson’s scheme will run all over the Tigers.

UConn over UNC – wouldn’t you just love to see this matchup in basketball? Wait a minute, it should have happened in the championship last year, but UConn kind of got shell shocked by Michigan State. Anyways – UConn is a very scrappy, disciplined team. Randy Edsall’s boys take the upset special of the week.

Stanford over WF – Wake Forest looked abysmal last week, Stanford is a program on the rise.

Notre Dame over Michigan – Rich-Rod good game against Western Michigan, but this week is a different story.

USC over OSU – USC never loses big games under Carroll… it’s just the little ones…

Tenn over UCLA – Didn’t like what I saw out of Neuheisel’s bunch against the lowly Aztecs. I expect Kiffin to pickup the big non conference W.

Fresno covers Wisconsin – I’m not totally confident they’ll win, but I’m sure FSU keeps this game close and covers the spread.
