ATVS - Geaux Show Pick'em 2010 Week 3

 

Another week of Pick'em is ready to go. I continue to remain impressed that the majority of the pickers remain over .500, but I'm most surprised at how some of our best commenters and some of the staff are stuck in the basement. Here's your top 10*, more charts and this weeks picks and some important notes after the break.

Few surprises this week. Who knew the Cajuns could cover, let alone win a game against one of the better Sun Belt teams? News Alert: FSU is not "back." Arky let the most of us down, mostly due to their nearly non-existant 1st half. It speaks worlds that Ole Miss didn't cover Tulane. Looks like michigan will have to wait till next week for their season to come crashing down around them.

A few important notes about this weeks games. For Houston-UCLA, Case Keenum may still be out for a concussion injury from last week. His backup was fine against UTEP, and UCLA seems to be having another bad year, but be careful. And their is not yet a spread for GT-UNC as they haven't yet decided who to hold out this week (remember that they had a bye in week 2).

 

Lots of great mid-rage non-conf games this week. ECU-VT isn't on there as an insult, the pirates have a high-scoring O that I think could turn this one into a shootout. Tenn showed they can hang with anyone for a half, and 17 is too high a spread in my opinion. I'd have thought the Arky-UGA spread would be bigger, but we'll know soon enough what Mallett can do against an SEC defense. And I'm really only picking them because I like Caldwell, but this is Vandy's best chance for an SEC win this season, I think they will make a fight of it and possibly win.

 

No Thursday games on the docket this week, so take your time and keep an eye out for news about the spreads in question. Remember that even if you've submitted picks, you can still change them up until noon on Saturday.
