Vendetta Sports Media’s SimBull Six Week 4 Picks
Our partners at SimBull introduced a new contest called the “SimBull Six” and Karl Heiser and Adam Krieger will give you our picks each week. Last week we went an even 3-3, making us 9-9 on the season so far. Here are our Week 4 picks.
No. 8 Arkansas (+18.5) vs. No. 2 Georgia (-18.5) – Adam’s Pick
Pick: Arkansas (+18.5)
So. Many. Points. I know Georgia has been a power program for the last decade since Kirby Smart took over in Athens, but I can’t see the Razorbacks losing by more than two touchdowns. Maybe this is an overstep by me but is this the biggest game is program history? Even if Georgia wins (they will probably win the game) I just don’t see it being a three score game.
No. 7 Cincinnati (-2) vs. No. 9 Notre Dame (+2) – Adam’s Pick
Pick: Cincinnati (-2)
If the Bearcats are a team that really deserves consideration for a College Football Playoff bid they need to win this game. Notre Dame has been good this year, but I don’t know if the Fighting Irish can get up for a team like Cincinnati the same way they do when they play Big Ten or other Power 5 opponents. I just think this is going to be a prime example of “Hungry Dogs Run Faster” – they want to prove they are a legitimate playoff team, and there is no better opportunity than this week.
No. 12 Ole Miss (+14.5) vs. No. 1 Alabama (-14.5) – Adam’s Pick
Pick: Ole Miss (+14.5)
SimBull – please stop giving us Bama games. I know last time Bama was a blind bet all year, but I was wrong. I was wrong against Florida, and I won’t do it again. TOO MANY POINTS. This is Lane Kiffin’s Super Bowl. He spent all week at practice making sure he was going to be able to clap back at Mike Wilbon for his PTI rant. Again, Hungry Dogs Run Faster – too many points, Bama wins but inside of 2 touchdowns.
Pittsburgh Steelers (+6.5) vs. Green Bay Packers (-6.5) – Karl’s Pick
Pick: Packers (-6.5)
I’m taking the Packers here and not even thinking twice about it. Watching Ben Roethlisberger try to play quarterback is downright painful at this point, and Pittsburgh’s offense has completely stalled out with a nonexistent run game. They have scored less than 20 points in their last two games and are basically just praying that their defense keeps them alive. On the other side, Green Bay is waking up from their abysmal opener against New Orleans and have scored over 30 in their last two games. Packers by a landslide at home.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7) vs. New England Patriots (+7) – Karl’s Pick
Pick: Buccaneers (-7)
Tampa Bay’s biggest weakness has been their secondary, and Matt Stafford lighting them up last week was the perfect example of that. New England will cover if they can exploit this weakness, but the problem is I don’t think they have the quarterback to do that. Mac Jones hasn’t exactly been pushing the ball downfield to start his career, ranking towards the bottom of the league in yards per pass thrown. Brady will do his thing and I like the Bucs to cover on the road coming off a loss.
Las Vegas Raiders (+3.5) vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5) – Karl’s Pick
Pick: Chargers (-3.5)
I’ll be honest, I still haven’t bought in on the Raiders. Two OT wins means they could very easily be sitting at 1-2. Even if they don’t win, they could at least keep it close right? I don’t know about that one. Justin Herbert should feast against this Las Vegas defense, especially with Rashawn Slater protecting him. The Raiders are due for a slip-up and this seems like a game where they fall off a bit.
