Week 13 football picks
This is the final picks blog of the 2011 season, and after another sub-part week (2-3), it's time to finish off strong. The season mark sits at 31-28.
D-V state final, Kirtland vs. Coldwater: Apologies to the Hornets. Last week, I shortchanged them, predicting Wynford would score 10 points. Kirtland won, 42-0. The state final can't be a whitewash, can it? PICK: Kirtland 28, Coldwater 7
Big Ten championship game, Wisconsin vs. Michigan State (+9.5): The Badgers lost on a Hail Mary pass by the Spartans in East Lansing, Mich., the first time these teams met. It's not happening this time. PICK: Wisconsin 34, Michigan State 21
SEC championship game, LSU vs. Georgia (+13.5): I'm done picking against LSU in any capacity. PICK: LSU 31, Georgia 13
Baltimore at BROWNS (+6.5): Bad snaps by the center, bad interceptions by Colt McCoy. What else is next? PICK: Baltimore 27, Browns 7
Indinapolis (+20) at New England: The buzz in the NFL this week is this large point spread. Really? PICK: New England 45, Indianpolis 0
