Make your best football picks - and help Webby

    I'm going to Vegas this weekend for our annual "guy's" trip. For us, it revolves mainly around alcohol and sportsbooks.

    Also, I usually give a couple bucks to the SportsJournalists.com fund a couple times a year.. But this time, instead of just donating $15, I thought that maybe our esteemed members can contribute their best football picks for this weekend, and I will make a three-game parlay, with the proceeds ($90, 6:1 odds plus the original bet) going to SportsJournalists.com donation.

    What are your best football picks for this weekend to help out SportsJournalists.com?

    I don't see any sure-thing lines for Week 5 (two of the games haven't been released yet).
    That said, if I had a gun to my head, here are the three lines I like the most.

    Kansas City -3 @ Arizona
    New England -9.5 vs. Miami
    NYG -4 vs. Washington

    Anybody else? Is the fate of Webby going to go strictly on Sobchak's picks? :D

    The New England spread smells of a trap. Maybe I'm wrong, but New England played out its ass last week, and Miami has to show something. Not saying the Phins win, but I think it'll be closer than 9.5.

    Could somebody post the week's lines?

    Okay, I'm going to go with KC and Philly.

    Someone throw out their best college pick. No game earlier than 11:00 am Vegas time.

    Is Trent Green starting for KC?

    I only ask because I want Webby to win, dammit!

    College game: West Virginia spotting only 24 to Mississippi State in Starkville.

    They'll have 24 by the end of the first quarter.

    Alright.

    KC -3
    Philly -2.5
    WVU -24

    Betting three chalks. Good luck to Webby.

    Penn State is only -3 at Minnesota, I think they'll cover that...although it does start at 9, LV time.

    Also, see what the card has S. Carolina-Kentucky at. Opened with USC only a 3 pt. fave...line's already up to 6.5-7. That one's worth a look.
