Week 6 football picks
Last week produced a 2-3 mark, so there's still plenty of room for improvement. The season mark stands at 7-18. Here we go:
Solon at Mentor, Friday: The Cardinals are rolling, especially after a huge win at tough Brunswick last week. Last year, Mentor beat the Comets twice, and expect another W here. PICK: Mentor, 45-21.
Nebraska (+3.5) at Ohio State, Saturday: The Buckeyes showed me something last week in East Lansing, Mich. The Buckeyes aren't great, but they play hard and are taking on the personality of its coach, Urban Meyer. PICK: Ohio State, 24-20.
Georgia (+2) at South Carolina, Saturday: This should be a fun game with plenty of points, just like last season when South Carolina won at Georgia. The road team wins for the second straight season. PICK: Georgia, 38-31.
Browns (+9) at N.Y. Giants, Sunday: The Browns have played well enough to win in three of their four games, but the feeling is the worn-out secondary takes a beating in New York. PICK: Giants: 34-21.
Broncos (+6.5) at Patriots, Sunday: When the Patriots fell behind, 21-7, to the Bills last week, I thought to myself, "New Engalnd will be 1-3. Wow." Final, Patriots, 52-28. PICK: Patriots, 27-17.
