It’s time for this week’s picks!

In a week devoid of marquee matchups, the most interesting storyline this week is the odd decision to play a college football game at Bristol Motor Speedway. With room for 150,000 spectators, the game hopes to break historic attendance records.

So far, four of our local degenerates like the Hokies to beat a Tennessee team that barely escaped Appalachian State last week. Here is the complete list of picks submitted so far:

You can also submit 2- or 3-way parlay wagers (on spread or over/under only) by emailing them to me. BullsOnParade is placing 200.00 on Air Force (-18) and Purdue (+6.5). I’ll get the automatic submit working one day, I swear.

As always, use this space to discuss this week’s games, and why you made the picks you did. I see some candidates for spite bets, so talk about those too.
