PiRate Picks For College and Pro Football–November 15-19, 2012

College Football Selections

It looks like one of those weeks where we think the odds are off in a lot of games.  Normally, we struggle to find enough games to select and have to squeeze a few more picks.  This week, we had the opposite happen.  We saw 25-30 selections that we really liked, and it took a couple of hours of research to whittle that number down to a reasonable amount.


We isolated several straight side selections where we believe the wrong team is favored, and we used some of those to play in 13-point teasers, in essence giving us what we believe are 15-20-point teasers.


1. Virginia +3 ½ vs. North Carolina

2. Kent St. +3 vs. Bowling Green

3. Mississippi St. -6 vs. Arkansas

4. Marshall -3 vs. Houston

5. Rice +3 ½ vs. S M U

6. Brigham Young -3 vs. San Jose St.

7. UT-San Antonio -6 ½ vs. Idaho

8. Ohio St. +2 ½ vs. Wisconsin


9. Money Line Parlay @ -118

Missouri over Syracuse

Georgia Tech over Duke


10. 13-point Teaser

Temple +16 vs. Army

Kent St. +16 vs. Bowling Green

Northwestern +20 ½ vs. Michigan St.

Rutgers +19 ½ vs. Cincinnati


11. 13-point Teaser

Kansas St. Pk. vs. Baylor

Tulsa +12 vs. Central Florida

Louisiana Tech +16 vs. Utah St.

Ohio St. +15 ½ vs. Wisconsin




This is the final week of byes; with four teams off, that reduces the number of games to 14.  With the Bears-49ers game off the board, it reduces the number of games to 13. 


1. Cleveland +9 ½ vs. Dallas

2. NY Jets +3 ½ vs. St. Louis

3. Cincinnati -3 vs. Kansas City


4. 13-point Teaser

Buffalo +12 vs. Miami

Tampa Bay +12 vs. Carolina

New England +3 ½ vs. Indiana


5. 13-point Teaser
