Week 10 football picks

Each week during the football season, Sports Editor Mark Podolski will pick NFL, college and high school games.

Last week produced another solid 4-1 week to put the season mark at 19-25-1. This week includes two tough college games to call:


Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary at NDCL: The Lions are hosting their first-ever playoff game, but this one won't be easy. The Irish are the No. 7 seed, NDCL No. 2. The Lions are on a roll, winning eight straight, and have just enough playmakers to knock off LeBron James' alma mater. PICK: NDCL, 17-14


Alabama at LSU (+9): The Tigers are getting points at night, and in Death Valley? Not sure LSU wins this one, but nine points is too much. The Tide wins, but doesn't cover. PICK: Alabama 20, LSU 12

Oregon at USC (+8): Another tough one to call here as the Trojans seem dangerous as a home underdog that can score points in bunches. The Ducks defense has been stout this year, but hasn't faced an offense like USC. However, it's the Trojans' defense that's the problem. PICK: Oregon, 42-30


Ravens at Browns (+3): Haven't had much luck picking the Browns this season. That luck has to turn eventually, right? PICK: Browns 24-23

Steelers (+3) at Giants: I'll take Eli Manning over Ben Roethlisberger. PICK: Giants, 27-21
