A Jersey Guy's Picks: Week 13

Yes, we are now in the Holiday Season and here's a Black Friday bargain for all of you shoppers. Follow the money that can be created in your account by The Locksmith and a Jersey Guy with their weekly picks.

Another week went by and once again we didn't let you down. A Jersey Guy continues to be well above the break even line (against the spread) by posting easy winners with Florida over LSU and Michigan State covering against Ohio State. He came up short in UCLA against USC, but still the 2-1 mark lifted the season record to a solid 22-17-1.

The Locksmith continued to roll as well, making Oklahoma an easy winner over West Virginia, which raised his record to 8-3-1 for the season.

So we move into the final two weeks of games.

The Game: Michigan State getting 12.5 at PENN STATE

The Pick: Michigan State 21 Penn State 20

The Comment: Michigan State isn't as bad as its record, (3-8), Penn State isn't as good as its record ( 9-2).

The Game: Florida getting 7 at FSU

The Pick: Florida 23, FSU 17

The Comment: Could this be Jimbo Fisher's last game at FSU before heading to LSU? Florida wants to go into the SEC title game with some momentum.

The Game: Syracuse getting 24.5 at Pittsburgh

The Pick: Pittsburgh 35, Syracuse 17

The Comment: Pittsburgh is better than Syracuse, but by 24.5? We'll take a chance on the Orange.

Season to date: 22-17-1

The Locksmith

Washington over WASHINGTON STATE, giving 6

Due to popular demand -- and because he has fattened his followers' wallets this season -- the Locksmith will weigh in with a bowl pick or two when the postseason starts, including his sure-fire picks for the college playoff matchups. For now, he has one more goodie to help you digest the Thanksgiving gluttony. Does anyone really believe one-dimensional Washington State is as good as Washington? The Cougars have a prolific passer in Luke Falk but one of the nation's worst running games -- and among the nation's worst pass defenses, something Jake Browning will exploit. Maybe this is a better WSU team than the one that opened by losing to Eastern Washington and Boise State, but there were flaws that jumped out in the recent loss to Colorado. Give Washington its one hiccup against a very good USC team two back. The Huskies bounced back in a big way against Arizona State. Top to bottom, they're a better, more complete team -- and a balanced one offensively with a solid defense. That's what wins games like these.
