Week 8 Picks
Week 8 Picks
Last week was another almost perfect week for me, but this time it wasn't a half point that sank the S.S. Perfect against the spread.
It was a full TD.
Here's how I did...
For Penn +12 at Brown I wrote:
I like Brown to win this game by about a touchdown, no more.
Actual Final Score: Brown 6 Penn 0
1-0 Straight UP, 1-0 Against the Spread
For Cornell -6 at Princeton I wrote:
Princeton's big stretch game was last week at Harvard. Now they will come back to Earth. Take Cornell and lay the points.
Actual Final Score: Cornell 24 Princeton 7
2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS
For Dartmouth +24 at Harvard I wrote:
I don't like big spreads in bad weather games. The Crimson will probably grab this win by 11 to 14 points.
Actual Final Score: Harvard 41 Dartmouth 10
3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS
OVERALL 2011 RECORD: 26-7 SU, 18-15 ATS.
Now to this week's games.
Yale +10 1/2 vs. Brown
I like Brown to win this game, but Yale always plays Brown really well. This could be decided by less than a touchdown.
Penn -17 1/2 vs. Princeton
The Quakers are hungry to show that last week's shutout loss to Brown was just a snowy fluke. Princeton will suffer.
Cornell -3 at Dartmouth
The Big Red can go a long way to convince any remaining doubters with a win on the road in Hanover. The Big Red can also go a long way toward putting the final nail in the Buddy Teevens' head coaching coffin. The Big Red will do both.
