SimBull Six

Our partners at SimBull introduced a new contest this season called the “SimBull Six” and Karl Heiser and Adam Krieger will give you our picks each week. We had a brutal week last week going 1-5, making us 26-28 on the season so far. To date, Karl is 17-10 and Adam is 9-18. Here are our Week 11 picks.

No. 4 Ohio State (-19) vs No. 7 Michigan State (+19) – Karl’s Pick

Pick: Michigan State (+19)
Ohio State hasn’t been overly dominant this season, and Michigan State should be good enough to not get totally blown out. 19 points is A LOT of points for this game. Reminder that the Buckeyes played both Nebraska and Penn State fairly close, and Michigan State is better than both of those teams.

No. 13 Oklahoma (-4) vs. Iowa State (+4) – Karl’s Pick

Pick: Iowa State (+4)
Iowa State have a very good defense, and Oklahoma really struggled against a good Baylor defense last week. I’m really just not very high on what Oklahoma has put together this season. Caleb Williams hasn’t proven to be “that guy” against a good defense yet, so I’ll predict he can’t get the Sooners to cover in this one.

No. 23 Utah (-3) vs No. 3 Oregon (+3) – Karl’s Pick

Pick: Oregon (+3)
Oops, I picked all the underdogs this week. Guess we’ll roll with it. Don’t overthink this one. Utah has lost to the only decent opponents they’ve faced this year in San Diego State and BYU. Oregon doesn’t have an awesome resume outside of the Ohio State win, but they run the ball more effectively than Utah and have a better defense. Could be a close game, but give me the Ducks.

Chiefs (-2.5) vs Cowboys (2.5) – Adam’s Pick

Pick: Cowboys +2.5
I have a really hard time betting against the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes when they are under three point favorites but that is what I am doing here. Dak and Co. down in Dallas have been playing great football and covering spreads along the way. This is going to be a great game to watch with tons of points so I can see the Cowboys sneaking out of Arrowhead with a win.

Chargers (-5) vs. Steelers (+5) – Adam’s Pick

Pick: Steelers +5
I picked the Steelers in the Empires Finest Pick Em challenge so I might as well do it here. I don’t love this game but I am just sick and tired of getting burned by the Chargers the last few weeks. It also feels like all the prime-time games this year have been won by the underdog so bark bark give me the points.

Buccaneers (-11) vs. New York Giants (+11) – Adam’s Pick

Pick: Giants +11
I hate picking an underdog who I don’t think can win the game outright, but my hands are tied in this game. Tom Brady is like zero for his last a million covering in primetime games, so combine that with a double-digit cushion I’ll take it. I
