What do you think about these games?

Ohio State -22 vs Navy

Penn State -27 vs Akron

Auburn -13 vs La Tech

Alabama -6.5 vs Va Tech

Cal -21 vs Maryland

LSU -18 at Washington

Think the teams on left will cover?

Thinking about putting some bones down on this one...

I learned a couple years ago to never bet on the Akron Zips game. Effers screwed me over on 3 different occasions.

Yeah...me too, but PSU beat them 34-16 the last time they played in 2006 and they have gotten better since then. Akron also has a lot of new players on defense...

I don't want to pick the games because if I'm wrong, I'll have a bunch of DBs on here telling me how much of an idiot I am.

But that said, I always bet against Ohio St. It seems like the last couple years those MFers couldn't cover to save their ass. Keep in mind Navy runs the option and will try to keep the clock running all game.

The problem with Auburn is they haven't had a really good offense in years. I could see them winning like 21-7 or something, but they're not a team that usually scores 35+ points and LA Tech is a decent team and can score points.

And I honestly don't know why Bama is a touchdown favorite over VT. Bama lost John Parker Wilson, Glen Coffee, and Andre Smith. Sure they still have Julio Jones but he can't do everything. VT returns Tyrod (or however you spell it) Taylor and most of their offensive starters. Not saying I expect VT to win straight up, but I figured the line would be closer to -3 or -4.

Other than that, I don't see anything wrong with the other picks.
