It’s December, which means holiday shopping, conference championship games, and in many places, snow. Most of the country, including sites that are hosting football games outdoors, is in the cold zone. The Mountain West Championship in frigid Wyoming, and the Baylor-West Virginia game, are likely to be to played on the (cue John Facenda voice) FRO-zen TUN-dra of WAR me-MORE-ial STAY-dium... man, I never get tired of hearing that.
I will also never get tired of sharing each week’s picks with you, which are:
|AndrewPina||Wyoming +241.0 money line to beat San Diego State||150.00|

|ULhothot||Ohio +867.0 money line to beat Western Michigan||109.99|
Not many picks yet, but more will come in.
Remember: Week 14 does not end after Saturday’s games are complete. The Army-Navy game on December 10 is also part of Week 14. I will post an update on Monday, but your fake bankroll will not be rest. If you want to play Army-Navy, you will need to reserve some fake money from the December 2-3 action.
Also of note: ULhothot is betting his last 109.99 on Ohio to upset Western Michigan outright. If he loses that game, and wants to keep playing, he will have to pick a sudden death bet on the first game of bowl season. This would be the New Mexico Bowl. Given the long odds Ohio faces, he might want to brush up on mediocre C-USA and Mountain West teams.
- BullsOnParade96: 370, Navy -3, Penn State+2.5, Clemson -10
