The Pi-Rate Ratings

November 13, 2015

Selections Against The Spread–Friday, the 13th of November, 2015

It usually happens once a year–the PiRates decide to go with a slate of underdogs, and this is the week we do it in 2015.


We have been looking to this week for the past month believing that there could be trap games galore in college football, and thus the urge to go with some underdogs stimulates us to present you with 11 plays.


We have chosen four money line parlays for you with all offering better than even money odds.  Enjoy these picks, but remember, they are worth exactly what you have paid for them.

  1. I don’t agree completely with your college choice but I can state, by viewing my account balance, you know much more than I do. Although I’m aware the Pi-rates warn against using their picks I do concur on your pro choices. Good luck, VANDYKEJIM

    • James, we take it you are one of our former readers at a prior website. If you are, then we are going to sic Vebiltdervan on you if you attempt to use our selections as real advice. Don’t you dare!

      Okay, if you must, only refer to our Money Line Parlays, since there is some real science included in how these picks are made.

      Enjoy the rest of the season. Maybe your team will get those two more wins they need to earn a 13th game.
