Week 9 football picks

Each week, Sports Editor Mark Podolski picks five games, four against the spread: one high school, two college and two NFL.

A 3-2 week puts the season record at 22-17, so let's make it two straight winning weeks. Here we go:


Benedictine at Lake Catholic: I've picked against the Cougars two straight times, so I'm not doing it for a third straight time. Lake hammered the Bengals in the regular season. PICK: Lake Catholic 28, Benedictine 14


Indiana (+27.5) at Ohio State: The Buckeyes found some offense last week in their stirring win over Wisconsin. Expect OSU to run over the struggling Hoosiers. PICK: Ohio State 38, Indiana 10

LSU (+4.5) at Alabama: The Game of the Century is being played in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and with that nasty defense and running back Trent Richardson, I'll go with the Crimson Tide. PICK: Alabama 27, LSU 13


BROWNS (+11) at Houston: It's difficult to pick the Browns in any respect with their inept offense. PICK: Houston 24, BROWNS 6

Green Bay at San Diego (+5.5): Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been awesome, and Chargers QB Phillip Rivers has not. Go with the Pack, big-time. PICK: Green Bay 38, San Diego 24
