Protect Your Unit Week 9 Picks Thread

(DISCLAIMER: This game is for entertainment purposes only. No actual money is being wagered.)

We have had another game change locations. The San Jose State-New Mexico game has moved from New Mexico’s home field to San Jose, due to an outbreak of COVID cases in Albuquerque. As per rule 14.6.4, the two players who had bet on that game were given the option of keeping their bet, or voiding it. Both opted to keep them. The UNM at SJSU game is also open for new bets.

The “Make Picks” page now shows a list of cancellations that count towards the COVID-19 bet. So if you’re not sure if a game counts towards this bet or not, or what the current total is, refer to that page.

Week 9 has seen three cancellations so far: Marshall-FIU, North Texas-UTEP, and Wisconsin-Nebraska. Nebraska tried to schedule a last-minute non-conference game with Chattanooga, but the Big Ten disallowed it. If this game had been added, though, it would have lowered the total number of cancellations from 3 to 2. This was in the bet rules when I first announced it: newly added games reverse a cancellation. Also, a game changing locations does not count as a cancellation.

Speaking of COVID, Clemson’s superstar quarterback Trevor Lawrence tested positive on Thursday night. This has a big impact on the lines for that game, lowering Clemson from about -31 to -24 over Boston College overnight. That will be an interesting result to watch.

USF is off this weekend, so you’ll all have to make non-homer bets. Here’s who everyone chose, as of about 11:30 AM Eastern time on Friday:
