Kansas State @ TCU -9 1/2
Arkansas @ Auburn -16 1/2 (I think Auburn finds a way to win but Arkansas beats the spread.)
Alabama -23 1/2 @ Ole Miss (It's a lot of points but Alabama has a decent Defense.)
Florida State @ Notre Dame -20 1/2 (If the Irish don't win by 21 they have some hidden issues.)
Miami @ Clemson -14 1/2 (I think Clemson stays perfect but Miami makes a great game of it.)

Tiebreaker
Texas vs Oklahoma -2 1/2 (The Sooners have lost twice and Texas will be rebounding. I think Texas has the better coach and more motivation.)
Points: 77

RE: 2020 Pickem Contest Week 6
In the first three official weeks of the Pickem contest, favorites have covered the point spread 44% of the time. For the entire 2020 season to date, including all games played (not just Pickem games) favorites have only covered 42% of the time. By contrast, our pickers have selected favorites 57% of the time. Which is to say that, if we were betting real money, we'd be significantly under water so far.

This week, we are still picking 57% of favorites to cover. If history is any guide, they should start moving closer to 48% over time, so maybe this will be our week.

Good luck.

RE: 2020 Pickem Contest Week 6
And the carnage continues. As a group, we were only right 39% of the time this week. Which makes quo vadis' performance all the more stunning. After a modest start of 3-2 in the Noon games, he blew away the field with a record of 11-2. That was 4 more wins than our second place finisher IWokeUpLikeThis at 7-6 (the only other player with a winning record for the week).

Tied for third at 6-7 were Buckminster Fuller, Schmolik, Shannon Panther and zibby.

I can only give quo 3 rep points for his win, but you all can (and should) add to that total by giving him rep yourselves. He earned it. Congratulations, quo!

His win also closed the gap on IWokeUpThisWay in the season race. Here are the Top Ten after four weeks:

.612 IWokeUpLikeThis
.612 quo vadis
.531 panite
.531 Shannon Panther
.490 zibby
.469 Buckminster Fuller
.429 ken d
.429 XLance
.408 Texan Mark
.388 ChrisLords
.388 Kaplony
