GAME: (153) NEW YORK GIANTS vs (154) SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
PICKS: (153) NEW YORK GIANTS
REASON FOR PICK: Play On: NY Giants.
Note: Given up for dead in mid-October, the Giants have come back to life like the Pink Floyd tune, wondering, “Where were you when I was burned and broken?” Like San Diego at 5-7 this season, the G-Men must overcome no less than five other teams in order to achieve a Wild Card spot, meaning this game is critical for both teams' chances in this year's playoff picture. Life on the road is what suits New York best with the Giants bringing a 15-3 ATS away record into today's game when playing off an away win. In addition, Eli Manning's sterling 10-3 ATS career mark as a non-division dog in games from December out, including 5-0 ATS when off a win, jumps off the page. The Chargers' non-electrifying 1-6 ATS record as favorites off a loss of 7 or more points, and their 1-9-1 ATS mark when laying points after taking points the previous week, pulls the plug on their chances. In a lights-out effort from Eli, Big Blue takes out powder blue as Diego lays another brick in its stonewall season. We recommend a 1-unit play on the NY Giants. Thank you and good luck as always.

GAME: (117) OKLAHOMA vs (118) OKLAHOMA STATE
PICKS: (117) OKLAHOMA
REASON FOR PICK: Play On: Oklahoma (Game 117).
Note: The Bedlam series is one of the oldest in college football and has been dominated by the Sooners, who hold a 83-17-7 advantage in the series. In fact, in the last 63 wins by Oklahoma, the margin of victory has been 20 points or more. Oklahoma won in OT last year, 51-48, after QB Blake Bell scored the tying TD on a keeper with 4 seconds to play in regulation, and after an OSU field goal to start OT, RB Brennan Clay motored in from 18 yards out for the winning score. The win gave the Sooners their 9th victory in the last ten years over the Cowboys. In fact, Oklahoma has dominated this series overall, going 22-3 SU if they enter the game with a .666 or better win percentage. But my how things can change quickly: the Cowboys are favored for only the fifth time in history, and with the number hovering right around -10, the possibility remains that this could be the first time ever Oklahoma State would be favored by double-digits. Add to that the fact that Okie State clinches the Big 12 and a BCS bowl berth with a victory here, and you have possibly the most important game in OSU history unfolding before us. Still, we can’t lay this kind of wood into a fierce rival (with nearly 50 YPG the better defense) who would love nothing more than to deny them the crown, not with my ‘BRILLIANT DISGUISE’ (2005 Black Book) wailing in the background, imploring us to fade favorites off a SU underdog win over an undefeated team. Plus, Big Game Bob is 21-8 SU versus .850 or better opposition, with only 3 losses by more than 10 points, and he has lost to Mike Gundy just once in eight meetings. Both teams will be rested and well prepared, but there is no doubt in our minds that taking the points is the only way to go. And that’s not a disguise, just OSU in a role they’ve never been before. We recommend a 1-unit play on Oklahoma. Thank you and good luck as always.

GAME: (123) DUKE vs (124) FLORIDA STATE
REASON FOR PICK: Your free pick for Saturday, December 7th, 2013, comes in the ACC title game as Duke and Florida State battle. Duke has a fine offense (33.7 ppg) though the defense gave up 58 to Pitt and 30 to Miami....and Florida State is far better than those two on offense! The over is 12-5-1 in the Blue Devils last 18 conference games. Florida State features the nation's second-ranked scoring offense, averaging 53.7 points per game. Florida State's roster is full of elite players who possess elite size, strength and speed. This team has taken down the three ranked teams it faced (Maryland, Clemson and Miami) by a combined score of 155-28. The over is 7-1 in the Seminoles last eight conference games, a 10-2 run over the total overall. Play Duke/Florida State Over the Total.
GAME: (117) OKLAHOMA vs (118) OKLAHOMA STATE
PICKS: (118) OKLAHOMA STATE
REASON FOR PICK: Saturday's FREE NCAAF WINNER is Oklahoma State over Oklahoma.
Let's talk Saturday Big Rivalry. Oklahoma State hosting Oklahoma. The line is currently the Cowboys -9 1/2 with a Total of 57 1/2. Oklahoma State is 10-1, just like Baylor is in the BIG 12, 7-1 in Conference play, and 8-3 ATS. Oklahoma is 9-2, 6-2 in Conference play, and 6-5 ATS. This game has a lot on the line, possibly the BIG 12 Championship and a berth in a BCS Bowl. Oklahoma won 9 of the L10 meetings SU, going 7-3 against the number. The Sooners only had two losses this season, a 36-20 defeat to the Longhorns and a 41-12 thumping by the Bears. Since the Baylor loss, Oklahoma spanked Iowa State, 48-10 and Kansas State, 41-31. Ok State dropped to West Virginia back in September, as a 20-point favorite. Since then, they've won 7 in a row SU and their L6 ATS. Funny thing how their last two games were against both teams that bested Oklahoma. The Cowboys routed the Longhorns, 38-13 and then shellacked the Bears, 49-17. Oklahoma comes in a bit banged-up while Okie State is relatively healthy. The Cowboys QB, Clint Chelf took a while but he has truly grown into the offensive leader of this unit, passing for 1043 yards, a 63.3% CR, 10 TDs, and just 3 INTs over his L4 games, as the team has posted 45.2 PPG during that span. The ground game of Roland, Smith, and Chelf have combined for 1306 YR and 25 TDs. Their "D" allows just 18.8 PPG, 130 yards rushing and 250 yards passing and has held their last 3 foes, Kansas, Texas, and Baylor to just 12 PPG. Oklahoma rushes for 242.3 YPG behind Clay and Williams but their passing game leaves a lot to be desired behind Blake Bell's, 1508 YP, 11/5 TD/INT ratio. They post 31.7 PPG on the road, being outscored by 1.2 PPG while Oklahoma State bests visitors by 16.7 PPG at home going 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS. I put a lean on Oklahoma State here. Thank you.

GAME: (149) TENNESSEE TITANS vs (150) DENVER BRONCOS
PICKS: (149) TENNESSEE TITANS
REASON FOR PICK: This is a 1* Free Play on Tennessee.
Obviously, the Broncos are a very good team. That doesn't mean that they can't be over-valued though.
In this case, I believe the number will prove to be a little too high.
Let's check it out.
The Titans have been at their best on the road. In six games away from Tennessee this season, they're 5-1 ATS.
They won outright at Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Oakland. They lost at Indianapolis, Seattle and Houston.
A closer look at those three road losses reveals that none of them came by more than eight points. The Titans lost by six at Houton, by seven at Seattle and by eight at Indianapolis.
The only time that the Titans were double-digit underdogs was at Seattle, a game where they covered the spread.
As for the Broncos, they've now seen four straight games decided by 10 or fewer points.
With three of the Broncos' last four games coming against divisional opponents - and the other a primetime thriller vs. the Patriots - it may be a little hard to "get up" for the Titans.
Despite their 5-7 overall record, the Titans remain in the hunt in the AFC Wildcard race. They know they desperately need this game though, if they want to keep their hopes alive. I won't be surprised to see them keep things much closer than many will be expecting. Consider taking the points.
Don't look now but Ben Burns has cashed three straight football totals, winning by an average of greater than 10 points each. On EARLY Sunday afternoon, this renowned "Totals Expert" UPS THE ANTE w/ a TRIO OF TOP TIER O/U TICKETS.
