2019 Six Pick Week 11: 0-0

Welcome back to Six Pick - The only column on this site written by NerdMagic. Very exclusive. Let's dive in. No stats this week, will be back next week.

Iowa
@ Wisconsin (-8.5)

Nerd Fact 1: More than 97% of Iowa's farms are owned by farm families.
Nerd Fact 2: Wisconsin produces over 2.5 billion tons of cheese a year.

Pick: Give me Iowa. Don't know if I like them to win outright, but they could keep it close.

LSU
@ Bama (-6.5)

Nerd Fact 1: Tigers live between 20-26 years in the wild.
Nerd Fact 2: Elephants are not very good at painting.

Pick: Yikes. I have no clue but my family will kill me if I don't pick LSU.

Penn State(-6.5)
@ Minnesota

Nerd Fact 1: If confronted by a mountain lion, don't run away. This may trigger an attack.
Nerd Fact 2: When you say gopher, you are probably referring to pocket gophers. I don't know the difference but that's what google says.

Pick: I'm picking the Gophers just because I want to see Penn State lose.

Notre Dame (-7)
@ Duke

Nerd Fact 1: According to google, there are no female leprechauns.
Nerd Fact 2: Tasmanian Devils are the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world.

Pick: Irish bounce back from a maroon and orange scare and smack the Blue Devils.

Louisville
@ Miami (-5.5)

Nerd Fact 1: Cardinals voluntarily cover themselves in ants. Scientists don't seem to know why.
Nerd Fact 2: Every second, a large hurricane will unleash the equivalent power of 10 atomic bombs.

Pick: These hurricanes will be a little tropically depressed when Louisville pulls the upset.

Wake Forest (-2.5)
@ Virginia Tech

Nerd Fact 1: There aren't a ton of fun facts about Deacons out there.
Nerd Fact 2: Turkeys sleep in trees.

Pick: Hokies by 105.

BEER OF THE WEEK

*******************

That's all for now folks. I actually get to be in Lane for a game for the first time in 5 years. Been WAY too long. Nerd Out.

EDIT: Updated the WAKE VT line. I copy and paste my format and forgot to update the line. My bad.

DISCLAIMER: Forum topics may not have been written or edited by The Key Play staff.

Not sure where your "Virginia Tech (-8.5)" line came from because the game opened at Wake (-1) and has since moved to Wake (-2.5). Anyway, picks:

Iowa
Bama
Penn State
Notre Dame
Miami
Wake Forest (+8.5)

Hawkeyes- Wisky is in a funk and Iowa has a real DLine.

Tigers- LSU loses this because of no offense each year. Problem solved.

Lions- If they aren't looking ahead, PSU is just better.

Irish- ND won't lose to an less talented team.

Canes- Miami playing better at right time.

Hokies- Tech protects its house. We win a shootout.

Iowa @ Wisconsin (-8.5)

LSU @ Bama (-6.5)

Penn State(-6.5) @ Minnesota

Notre Dame (-7) @ Duke

Louisville @ Miami (-5.5)

Wake Forest @ Virginia Tech (-8.5)

(I'm seeing Wake Forest at -2.5 by the way)

Iowa @ Wisconsin (-8.5)

LSU @ Bama (-6.5)

Penn State(-6.5) @ Minnesota

Notre Dame (-7) @ Duke

Louisville @ Miami (-5.5)

Wake Forest @ Virginia Tech (-8.5)

I'd have taken VT (-2.5), but since we're not do an actual line here, you force me to pick against the Hokies for the first time all year.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

Iowa: Meh.
Bama: Like Lebron when he was in the East, or Tech v. UVA in football...until proven otherwise, don't bet against them.
PSU: Because I know nothing about Minnesota other than they're pretty decent.
ND: Meh.
Louisville: Fuck Miami and Louisville is heading in the right direction.
Wake: Tech doesn't cover a -8.5.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

WF (-8.5) For the record I'd pick the Hokies at anything under 4.5.

Stolen from 247:

They (Wake Forest) haven't played on the road since September 28th, when they traveled to that raucous stadium in Chestnut Hill.

They've beat UNC by 6, Utah St by 3, BC by 3, FSU by 2. That's 4 victories against mediocre teams by 14 points total. Their other wins are over Elon and Rice, with a loss to Louisville.

Give me the Hokies to cover!

Was this written before they mercy-ruled NC State?

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

NC state is awful this year. Wake should have blown out the other awful teams they snuck by as well. The only question is: are we as awful as the Atlantic division scrubs or can we pull one out here?

Depends if the Good Hokies or the Bad Hokies show up.

And if Hooker plays. I like Patterson and think he has good upside, but my not-so-controversial opinion is that we'd have beaten ND going away if he were healthy and out there.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

That was also probably with the real line of Wake -2.5, instead of the completely made-up line used here. We might cover Wake -2.5. There's a much lower chance of us beating them by 9+.

Was someone using the Number Pad to type the Wake spread? 2 is on the bottom....still don't know who designed the number pad to count down from the top.

Wait I just noticed you have it at VT -8.5.... I'm so confused.

(add if applicable) /s

I made an oops while typing at 1 AM Thursday while packing to get to Blacksburg. Basically, most people will get a point for that barring a drastic win one way or the other. My bad on it y'all.

Might want to double-check your last pick, as the spread used is "Virginia Tech (-8.5)", not "Wake Forest (-8.5)".

Work the system!!!!
Gracias.

Iowa @ Wisconsin (-8.5): I might not take the OVER at 8.5. Certainly not gonna take a spread that large.
LSU @ Bama (-6.5): DACOACHOGONNAWINDAWHOLEDANGTHINGDISYEAR!
Penn State(-6.5) @ Minnesota: Fun fact: Minny has played something like 10 quarters against a first-string QB this year.
Notre Dame (-7) @ Duke: If nothing else, I want this to make our close loss to ND look better.
Louisville @ Miami (-5.5): Both these teams suck out loud. Do I have to pick one? #goacc
Wake Forest @ Virginia Tech (-8.5): Wake is pretty decent this year. I'll be happy with a 7-point win.

H O K I E S: sold out Lane Stadium, coming off a close loss to ND, a game honoring the one and only Bud Foster. I think the boys play lights out in this one and prove themselves against a (maybe overrated) top 25 team in a shootout.
