After going 3-3 ATS in Week 5, I had to take Week 6 off to bask in all the success. So my apologies for costing any faders the juice. We'll try and to better this week with our "plays to fade":
West Virginia -4 at Texas Tech: Clearly this is a trap that I'm prepared to walk right into, considering that Oklahoma just bombed the Red Raiders on their home field last week at roughly the same point spread. Yes, it's a sandwich game for the Mountaineers, who are coming off a big win at Texas and playing Kansas State next week, but what the hell?
Texas +3.5 vs. Oklahoma @Dallas:
This game screws me every year I play it, so this should be a five-star lock on the Sooners. I always figure the points are too many in a rivalry game like this.Iowa +10 at Michigan State:
Once again, another trap I'm prepared to fall into. The Spartans had to rally to beat Indiana and didn't appear to have much offense against Ohio State, so we'll just assume that they won't score enough to beat Iowa by 11, assuming the Hawkeyes can throw a few scores on the board.Wisconsin +3 at Purdue:
The Boilermakers are favored over Wisconsin one week after getting skull-drug by Michigan? Sure, the Badgers suck, too, but I'll take them to win outright on the road here.Virginia Tech -10 vs. Duke:
The Hokies looked shitty last time out and this looks like too many points. We'll take 'em.LSU -3 vs. South Carolina:
We're not really buying the notion that the Gamecocks are THAT good, are we?BYU -6 vs. Oregon State:
Cougars will win 7-0. You might be able to shop for a better line if you like BYU. I saw it as low as -4.
Last time (Week 5): 3-3
