Alright, so good off to you first, George.
And let's get this going.
Yeah, So we have a real special guest to start off our very first episode.
Uh, he's been featured on Frustration Nation with us.
He was on a d j positive beats one weekend as well.
Um, so we have, sir, yacht with us to pick all of our college football picks for this week.
Score cast eso, sir, yet we have them ready. Yep.
He's actually in the room.
Awesome. Let's bring them on. All right.
Hey, man, I think What's up? What's up, Champions? How we doing? Thanks for having me on.
We're doing well.
As I said, there's, uh we're thrilled to have you on someone who needs no introduction.
The person who single handedly rose Big 10 football from the ashes like the Phoenix Sir Yacht.
So what? You know, today I saw you were saying something about Ohio State playing Alabama, Perhaps this weekend.
What's the latest you got on that? Yeah.
I mean, I think, um, my first tweet, which is like, it's it's like, you know, you put like you put tweets in the threat and you list out the details because Twitter really has, like, a 240 character limit.
The first tweet I had was some pretty terrible warning eso this is most likely not gonna happen.
It's kind of a long shot.
And I explained it like in the second tweet I put out, I reread the first one.
I was like, Yeah, I kind of made it seem like Well, OK, so to be fair, I did say it's discussed.
I didn't really say that.
I I did say there was some hurdles, but I made it sound like it was a possible thing I don't think would ever happened.
Because the Big 10 Kevin Warren, Um you know, Nick's Nebraska playing UT Chattanooga? I think also, Nick Save is an absolute coward, and he would want to probably play someone like the Montessori of blind and deaf. No.
Yeah, some D four high school team.
I just You know what I mean? Yeah.
Yeah, I mean, he would I don't think he would ever do that.
But all I do know is, since they're both their games have been, um, have been canceled that there was discussions.
Now I've been getting quite I've been getting destroyed online.
Eso I've looked.
I've haven't really looked too much, but I mean, would that be like the coolest thing ever? If just out of the blue Ohio State Alabama played one is a one is Ohio State to 3313? Wouldn't that be something? Week after Clemson, Notre Dame, right? Yeah.
And you already got, uh, Alabama and Georgia.
You've already had some big, like top four ranked teams play like so It's kind of It's a pipe dream right now.
They would have to decide by tomorrow.
I mean, it's probably not gonna happen, but I also all I said was, they've had these discussions, but anyway, yeah, Gray, there's not really any one good game this week for college football.
Like there's, like nothing to compare to like Clemson and Notre Dame.
Or like Ohio State, Penn State.
There's not really any, like good game standing out this week, and so that would really, really help. They get great.
It's like I'm I'm just thrilled that there are gonna be games because there's a lot of cancelations and there's, I mean, Wisconsin might cancel their entire football season.
I mean, you might have more games get canceled like I'd be announced to be canceled tomorrow.
It's it's It's scary.
Um, then obviously, I mean, in here in Ohio, they might shut down restaurants and bars and fitness centers in a week or so, they're gonna revisit it.
But there's Ah, yeah.
I mean, I'm just thankful that, like even the Mac last night, I mean, that was can stay.
It looks really good.
I'm just kinda I'm just thankful.
College football's on.
So, yeah, I might not be the best slate of games this weekend, but as long as we still have games, that's what I'm hoping for.
Who knows? I mean, there there might be some bad news for some teams.
Yeah, that's right.
Um, so then tell us also.
Last night you dropped a big single with your band Bangor.
Thank you. Know small.
So I'm gonna group called Maui Ski Club.
Started it in 2016 with my twin brother and a couple of my friends, Um, working at it for a little bit.
I mean, that's that's kind of white.
Surya came about that was, like my music, like, stage name.
And then I started making content.
Um, so, yeah, we just, uh, way gotta deal with a label.
A small label out of New Jersey, uh, called Water Sound Entertainment.
And we did all this promotion and dropped it, Uh, midnight and yeah, it's been doing well so far.
And the big thing is, you wanna get it on like Spotify playlists and stuff.
So we the label submitted it to, like, 25 playlists.
So we're hoping to get on, like, new music Friday and like, the big time.
So? So we'll see. But yeah.
I mean, do you, like, all day? Like I've been traveling around Ohio? Like, I do like Ohio videos for, like, tick tock and stuff.
So I've been, like, going everywhere and then between that doing promotion.
So, like, I just got back into town like, a couple hours ago, and I'm still doing the promotion, so But it's so much fun.
Like content music.
Like, if I'm working towards doing that full time 2020 21.
Just being just being full time.
Yeah, that's that's deputy dreams.
Yeah, we're working on it.
So does your twin brother ever like post breaking news under the cir yacht name? Did he bring back the Pac 12? Yeah, he he actually writes for ah, few NFL teams.
Like Like like an espy nation.
He writes for the Browns, the Dolphins, Panthers, 40 Niners, and he writes for ah, fantasy Block B.
Yeah, he's pretty good.
He has, like, uh, Steve Young and Ray Lewis follow him.
And like a bunch of other proud of people.
So yeah, he's Yeah.
Yeah, he's a little smarter than I am, but I guess I'm not afraid to do a little more and put myself out there.
If you're a yacht, what would your brother be? You know, I I wouldn't say he's like some sort of like watercraft would be just like another like, badass, like transportation vehicle, Like maybe a trained fighter pilot. Yeah.
Train like a train.
Mr Train? Yeah, I like that.
Yeah, well, let's get into our score.
Uh, sorry. It were appreciating.
You coming on talk college football with us.
Um, but man, Michigan had to want to run us through what the rules are for our score cast. Yeah, absolutely.
So what we've been doing, we've kind of been refining this.
And so some of this we talked about on our last episode when this was still a frustration nation show.
Um, but basically, we're gonna jump into the picks and every episode we make all of our picks for the big games every, um, every week, which will be like the big name college football games.
And then we run through all the NFL games after, um, Okay, So the rules.
When we're making our picks, we each have to use a skip, which is Yeah.
Just zero wins or losses.
It's a game you don't wanna play. Don't wanna bet.
And then you also have one lakh, which is worth either two wins or if you're wrong, Two losses.
Um, every other pick is just worth one point for a win or loss, and so we'll keep track of our records.
Uh, with Surya being our guest will have his records on file.
Um, but then for all of us, host will keep track of this throughout the season.
On there will be we're gonna figure out what this will be.
We're open to suggestions, but there's gonna be some kind of reward punishment something, uh, just to make this the glory of winning glory is good.
I think we need to get a trophy of some sort.
Pass around. Yeah.
Or a like an email.
Yeah, we owe much cheaper.
So, uh, yeah, get ready for the best.
Show out their inaugural episode first week.
Um, because unlike the other ones out there on the score, cast we will not ever be wrong.
That is a guarantee.
Money, Back way.
Talk about how big cats can't lose.
Parlay Never never went, e Actually, one on one.
I'm like, Wow, this is great.
I'm just gonna That guy.
Yeah, he was, like, once, But like that guy, I love him.
He came in a little **** for my stuff, like, Yeah, I'm like, Dude, you've never wanted I can't lose Parlay the easiest for me, although, like you just takes the biggest favorites and parlays, Um, like the money line. It's easy.
That's also I love big.
Okay, But he charged him.
He he goes balls out like he doesn't pick the easy like granted.
Like it za good parlay, but yeah, well, unlike Big Cat, we will never be wrong.
That's right. Way camp.
You wrong? Partly their Ugo Ugo.
Yeah, All right.
We'll work on the copyright issues later.
All right, let's get into our first matchup, which is number two Notre Dame at Boston College and Notre Dame is favored by 13.5.
So rich, you want to hit us first with what your thoughts are in this game Yeah.
So I think since I came off the huge win against comes in, I think no one is going to hit it.
They're gonna go above deep. Honestly.
Lord Dame has allowed 14 or more points just twice this season, so I think it's on the offense.
Scored at least 30 points they should cover.
So I think Notre Dame minus 13.5.
Yeah, this one's tough because I do want to give credit to Boston College like they've kept some good some games close against good teams, like noticing Clemson, North Carolina before that.
And then there's always the question of Will Notre Dame have that emotional letdown coming off this huge win? Um, I don't have the answer to It's just a question.
Uh, but we will not be wrong.
So I do think Notre Dame keeps their momentum wins by at least two touchdowns because it's that, like, that threshold number of being just under 14, I'm a little more confident taking that, um, so yeah, 13.
5. I'll take Notre Dame.
So yeah, What about you? You know, I was Notre Dame made me I've to consume a lot of chicken McNuggets because of them because I put on between was like, Yeah, Notre Dame beat Clemson.
I will eat a chicken McNugget for every retweet him like this gets.
I think it's had about 3000.
It's a little over 3000.
So I gotta figure that I'm trying to put on something for charity and have some people kind of join me instead because I think I'll die.
You that? But But credit to them.
They played very well, Ian.
Book looked very good.
I mean, they were just they e no, they didn't have Trevor Lawrence, But D J However, the hell you say last I'm Yeah, I mean, he's gonna be like he's a stud.
Like he's, uh he was a stud, like he killed it.
So credit to Notre Dame.
They played well, and, uh, they took down, you know, one of the best powerhouses in college football.
I like them to cover the spread as well.
So as the resident Notre Dame fan here, I like Notre Dame carrying their momentum over, but I have flashes back thio both of the past two seasons on specifically, one thing you have in 2018, they were having a really good run, came up against Pitt and barely squeaked out a win, maybe by two or three points.
And to me, um, going up against their second string from last year.
Feel your Covic, who has a little bit of hard feelings towards Brian Kelly and Notre Dame.
I have a bad feeling about this game.
I think it is going to be closer than people think.
And so for that reason, I think Notre Dame will win.
But I'm gonna pick Boston College to cover what a fake fan, you jerk.
You probably don't even cry when you watch Rudy.
To be totally transparent, I'm a newer Notre Dame fan, like as in like since 2015, and I hadn't seen Rudy before then.
And when I saw Rudy, my first reaction was Okay, so run of the mill sports film, which is probably like slander.
No, pretty accurate.
But I mean, I like true.
I love how everybody that, like played on that team, gets really mad because they're like this ****.
Didn't what isn't really didn't happen.
Not that happened.
The thing that I can't believe is Joe Montana was the quarterback of that team, and he's not even in the room movie.
Like what a smooth did that.
Like the Hey, go play.
That was him, right? Yeah.
But Vince Vaughn isn't supposed to you Montana, is he? Maybe.
But the fact that you don't know is concerning, like, e.
I'm a newly newly fan.
So, yeah, the fact that the fact that it's not common knowledge, like he's one of the greatest a quarterback, whatever way have that movie bothers me? I don't know.
Our next game is number nine Miami at Virginia Tech.
And by the way, all these lines were getting are from the ESPN APP.
Not a sponsor, But I couldn't believe that.
I saw an unranked Virginia Tech was given the favorite Negative.
2.5 over number nine.
Um, so I'm gonna throw this one first over to man Michigan hat.
What are your thoughts on this game? I'm not the smartest guy in the world.
And so when I see numbers like this, it makes me my first thought.
Isn't I'm gonna get one over on Vegas here.
My first thoughts, like, what am I missing? Uh, so it feels like a trap.
I think that's a smart thing of you to say, though, if you were done, you'd be like, I'm going to pick the spread.
Are you gonna question it? That's my thing.
I mean, you are wearing a Michigan hat, so I do question, but yeah, trust me, what happened to wear this hat is more painful to me than anyone else that you Hey, you got a Yeah.
So, uh, yeah, it's just weird because Virginia Tech just lost to a school called Liberty.
Um, who they are good this year, but still Yeah.
So insert Jerry Falwell cook joke here.
But, uh, so I think Miami might be a little overrated at number nine.
Honestly, um, but I don't know how you're not favorite in this game, So if you're if you're going to give me points, I'll definitely take Miami toe win and cover.
Yeah, I'm gonna jump in here, and I'm just gonna say, like, just again, there's something I feel like maybe I'm missing with it.
But based on this line and based on Miami being nine alone, my logic and this is why I'm picking it as my lock that Miami will cover.
So, Roque? Yeah, real quick.
So this is our first lock of the night, and all of our locks are brought to you by the shoot your shot sports merch store.
That's your shot sports dot com.
Check out our latest gear.
New hats, shirts, sweaters, mugs dropping often.
Just go there to lock down the gear of your favorite shows right now.
So I like a good one.
That was very e didn't I Did not scripted out practice that in the mirror before.
E looking for walking.
Walking down, right? All right.
Ritchie, who wants to go next? On this morning? Yeah, I'll go last.
Yeah, I hate to be a poser, but I'm gonna I'm gonna make this my lock in pic too.
Um, it's just like it Zawawi weird to me to be like Miami.
I have Miami in the upset here.
Like there are the 99 team in the country. I know.
They're not like I think they're a little higher than what they should be.
I don't think they should be nine.
But I just find it so bizarre that they're not favored in this game.
So I'm gonna lock it into I'll have Miami got money, line and spread.
You know, I think they're gonna win this game nice.
So we have something that we have all the same pick, like a quake or whatever, but it's my lock, Teoh.
I think it's crazy that, like they lost again celebrity last week.
Miami does have trouble running the ball, but three t has a weird bad defense.
So definitely Miami puts 15 and the money line.
So you're like, you're walking that one blocking up, gonna lock someone e feel like I should have liked too late, the way all could be very wrong and a lot of trouble.
It makes me wanna take Virginia Tech.
Now that's the thing that, like Vegas, I mean, they don't something like they know something.
That's why I'm like, Ah, but like, this is, this doesn't make sense.
Well, last week for NFL games, the top foremost betted on games like as far as where the money went, Vegas one, all of them, and so college is different, but yeah, it's just **** you, Vegas.
Oh, man, it's amazing.
All right, So then we have your, uh, everyone's favorite Razorbacks against number six Florida, uh, in Florida's favored by 17.5.
Yeah, so I'll start on this one, uh, 17.
5 is one of those things where it is a big number and Kyle Trask is looking good.
And Florida looked really good against Georgia.
Like, really felt like they kind of just beat Georgia's brains in.
Um, so it's hard Thio pick against Florida, But at the same time, Arkansas has at times this year looked, you know, pretty decent.
5 is just a big number.
So because of simply because a large number I'm still picking Florida.
Florida the win.
But Arkansas to cover mhm.
I'll probably wrong, but that's okay.
Well, then change it.
E o don't wanna be right.
I will be right.
I will be right.
E can't be wrong.
I'm throwing over to you, sir.
Since you're mocking me, I was just trying to help you out there.
I know ID like Trask a lot.
I've watched Arkansas play against Auburn and Auburn sucks.
Um, my girlfriend went there and, you know, I've I've kind of become a fan by relationship, and that was just a miserable game to watch.
Arkansas is not that good.
Um, Florida's played some pretty good competition is, as you know, held and and done.
Well, I like them to cover.
And what went? Obviously, but I like them to cover as well.
Go ahead, Richie.
I'm still thinking Well, I don't know much about this game.
I hate high spreads.
So I just stay away if it's more than two Touchdown.
So I don't use my skip on this game, So e should have went first.
Because I'm gonna use my skip to, But now you have to do the ad.
Read for it for a skip.
So e skip? Yeah.
Don't you know our skips are brought to you by fanatics here? Thank you.
And Alex is your one stop shop for all your sports gear.
Needs will be sure not to skip out on gearing up for the season.
That's your shot.
Sports are not shop. Go to shoot your shot.
Sports dot com forward slash fanatics and click the link to purchase through fanatics.
So don't skip out on that gear on.
Let's get right back into our score cast.
Since my transitions are blatantly obvious.
No, they're baller.
Are Can't lose transitions e like that.
I'm gonna use my skip here, too, just because So Sam Pittman, coach for Arkansas.
I like him a lot, but he has co vid right now.
If he was on the sideline, I'd be tempted to take him with the points.
Um, but between that, maybe Florida has a letdown game.
There's just too many unknowns for me, so I'm gonna pass on this one.
Number 10 Indiana at Michigan State.
Are you favored by 7.
Yacht? Why don't you take this one first? Oh, my God.
This is I almost wanna make this one of my lock.
I like Indiana a lot.
Um, and I don't like Michigan State a whole lot.
They lost the Rutgers.
Rutgers better this year.
They beat Michigan. Yeah.
Michigan State only beats trash teams, so right.
And, God, Michigan is miserable.
to the Big 10 really is not good this year.
Indiana's e like Indiana is the second best team in the Big 10 this year.
E mean, this right in Wisconsin, Wisconsin canceled their season.
You might have another Northwestern Ohio state.
Uh, Big 10 Championship.
How is Minnesota doing Are they don't even know how they're doing.
E mean, they lost the mission.
Could they've lost of Maryland to? I know, I think there were three.
Are there one or two? Maybe.
Why way Literally All fought for the Big 10 to come back.
Just so how State could go do something like for a House State national championship, of course, but Indiana is good.
Indiana is good, though, and I will.
I think they're gonna win by at least two touchdowns.
I just don't think Michigan states that good.
And the thing this year is like, the spreads are gonna be different because the crowds are either not gonna be there all, or they're gonna be limited in some capacity.
So it's interesting to think about how the spreads are gonna be different cause you don't really have that home field advantage as much as it would be in a take a typical college football game.
Indiana wouldn't by two touchdowns here.
I mean, that s so I obviously have them covering.
Yeah, E I I also have Indiana winning and covering this game.
Um, I like to me.
It's a no brainer that they'll win by more than one touchdown.
Um, I think it was a surprise.
A lot of people at Michigan State beat Michigan, but I I think that's set.
So far that has said more about Michigan that it has about Michigan State.
Michigan State just got road graded by Iowa.
Yeah, so I have a lot of confidence in Indiana to win and cover this game.
Yeah, Yeah, the same.
And this is my lock to Michigan State sucks, um, and what's so frustrating? They should know they're just a terrible for the last time you locked against Michigan State was Michigan Michigan State game.
It's also well, Indiana is a real football game.
Indiana a picking between two teams that Yeah, just both beat Michigan pretty badly, so Yeah.
Nothing else to say on that Ritchie.
So obviously, I'm gonna take Indiana Michigan State does suck.
They can't hold onto the football.
Honestly, I think Indiana's legit.
Um, yeah, Indiana by billions.
So yeah, I think that's good.
Well, speaking of Michigan, we have Wisc.
Number 13, Wisconsin visiting the big house.
Michigan, Wisconsin favored by 40 Spreads.
What the hell is this? Spread? Michigan was favored when the line came out by, like, a point or two, and it immediately would move.
Hey, if you have a problem with the spread, take it up with ESPN, Alright? I'm e spread.
Well, I would say it's really it's only one day, so yeah, that'll move.
Still, like, all the way the other factory.
And I feel like it'll get over seven, I bet, but I'm gonna bet on it now, I guess. Yeah.
Well, what are you thinking with? Betting for this game? May probably mean No.
What? What? You're leaning.
Keep going over.
I keep you having the team that Well, actually, because Miami was my lock.
I have Wisconsin winning, um, by at least more than four points.
Um, I like to say at least a touchdown.
I just don't know, Uh, there's there's some fundamental problems that Michigan has that because usually at this point, you know they have, like one or that maybe have one loss.
But they're going into the season.
They have a chance of going to the Big 10 championship.
But it's like it's some things just is not right.
I mean, the Harbaughs out like, I mean, he's done so if they're letting him finish the year, but it just doesn't I don't know.
There's some disconnect and I don't see it translating toe Michigan losing by four points or less.
So I don't know how bad Wisconsin is going to beat Michigan, but I just probably gonna say it's gonna be more than four points.
Well, I I I just checked back on the ESPN app, and their confidence is rising in Wisconsin because they actually bumped it up another half point.
So it's up at Wisconsin by 4.
5 Now, that was the line Which number we're gonna use for 4.5.
Does that change your opinion? E cuts down e.
But if it was 24 a half, I would Yeah, I'd still take Wisconsin.
Honestly, eso is.
You wanna go there? You're taking Wisconsin? Yeah.
I mean, what can I even say it like? No, e just as a fan, I can't bring myself to lock it.
I mean, it's the kind of thing where it's like Michigan has enough talent.
You would think at some point that have a bounce back kind of, you know, like the classic savior job game, uh, the classic.
Like when to make your fan base feel better kind of game.
But this team so bad, I don't think they even have that kind of game in them until you get to like Rutgers Maryland kind of teams.
The question is, if if Wisconsin has, if they're healthy enough to to pass the ball, have any kind of passing game will blow out Michigan because Michigan State, their quarterback is terrible right now.
And he threw for over 300 yards against Michigan in our corners or just getting beat on every play.
Eso If you have even a halfway decent quarterback, you're gonna pass for three or 400 yards against Michigan.
So, um so yeah, assuming that Wisconsin plays the game will cover.
Yeah, for me on this game, uh, I everything you said about Michigan, maybe having a bounce back save your job.
Like, you know, quote unquote saved the season, you know, you know, in a kind of way, um, I feel I do feel like michigan just because college football is built so much on emotion, I feel like that is something I could see the players getting up for Harbaugh, maybe, um And so because of that and because of Wisconsin's long layoff, I have chosen to skip this game because there could be a lot of moving parts there with Wisconsin Missing time.
When they missed a couple weeks, they looked really rusty against Louisville.
And so, uh, that's why I've chosen to skip this game.
I'm picking the Badgers minus four or 4.5.
I think they're well rested.
So I think there s o e awesome.
All right, so our last our last one right here is number 23.
Northwestern at Purdue.
Northwestern, by the way.
It's kind of weird to say Number 23 Northwestern.
Um, but Northwestern is favored by three.
So, uh, man, that you can have.
Why don't you start on this one? I love me some Pat Fitzgerald.
Um, like, it's just nice to see things kind of coming together.
They're a little bit like it seems like they have a quarterback that they like who can kind of run the system, which he's always kind of needed for his offense.
I'm gonna ride with him this week to, um I think they cover the spread.
I almost locked this game.
Um, part of me just wants them to be good, because there's no other good teams in the West right now.
Really? Um, so yeah, I'm I'm hoping Northwestern keeps winning, and so I'm picking them in this game.
So I think the Northwestern defense is really good.
They have excellent ball control, holding it for around like, 33 minutes per game.
They have great turnover margin, but produces a great to be to passing with 71% yards, whatever, but like, I think they could not match the defense.
So I'm going for Northwestern.
Yeah, sir. Yacht.
This has nothing to do with my pick.
I just noticed this the other day I was watching, the football game was on.
It happened to be Northwestern.
I noticed that everybody on Northwestern's offense was a Caucasian.
So e was like BYU BYU weird jersey.
That's like, That's like Notre Dame jersey e.
Wait, that's Northwestern.
What? I've never seen that before.
E e I use were Jersey.
Um, I watching in Iowa basketball game.
What? What the hell? Um, but I will.
I'm gonna skip this one.
Um, I just don't know enough about either team.
It's just It's so weird.
Like like like you said, it's weird saying 23 Northwestern like is Is college football really that bad this year? Like, it's just I don't know.
I mean it Zits Worse.
Who in the Pac 12 is ranked USC? Is that it? Or organ or no? Yeah, organism about my bad.
But like no, but no one else.
Yeah, so it's like, I mean, there's a lot of I mean being noted being a Notre Dame fan.
There's a lot of a C C teams that are ranked.
I feel like it's mainly a C, C and SEC.
Then you have Ohio State and Indiana, and I get this Michigan Yeah.
Like, I don't know.
Won't be ranked against, like, 33 more seasons.
Yeah, they might get the guy from Utah next year if I'm using the harbor was gone or less Miles has come up.
Is, uh can I think so? What? I would think about that.
Yeah, We'll see.
Well, you could You could try to get Matt Nagy because he'll hopefully be gone from the Bears.
So Well, that's a different thing.
No, no, he'll he'll get, I think I think Maggie will get to pick a Q b this draft.
I don't know where they'll be.
Um, but either this off, like signing somebody, trading for somebody or picking somebody drafting somebody.
Now you'll get to pick his quarterback because people like to say that he picked Pat Mahomes even though obviously there were multiple people probably behind that pick.
The last thing I wanted to do is more hypothetical.
But, sir, yacht, Since you're the Big 10 expert here with Ohio's with this Ohio State Alabama rumor, if you had to set if they played and if you had to set point spread for that game, what would it be? And then maybe we could go ahead and pick it.
Assuming they're playing neutral site somewhere, I guess.
Um, my guess that if it was, um, okay, we should spread, I would say, I'm telling you, I think it would be, like, really close, but I would have my guess would be like Alabama plus two point minus 2.
5 or something like that.
That is exact thing.
I have number I had.
Yeah, that's not Yeah, that feels about right.
Uh, and what would your pick be for the game? I know you're in Ohio State fans, so I think Alabama would win.
I just think defensively Ohio State is a lot of questions.
I mean, they let up a T, especially at the end, with against Rutgers that just I think that a lot of questions Justin Fields playing out of his mind.
I mean, I think I mean, him and Mac Jones, obviously the top two right now, like Trevor Lawrence, is like, third best odds to win.
I think Justin will eventually go ahead of Mac.
The more they play.
That's my prediction.
But I just I think the defense has too many holes.
And, um, there's a little bit of question of their running game is Well, eh, so they just have too many questions for me.
Toe kind of put them ahead of Alabama.
God, they look good.
They're very good football team.
So I would probably say Alabama Mhm, Richie, what would you say that? Say we're picking Alabama? Yeah.
I mean, it was 2.
5. Yeah, it was, like more than a feudal.
Maybe I'd pick Ohio State, but this 2.
5, I'd definitely pick Alabama.
It'll be close, but I'm number guy.
Yeah, for me, I would have a really hard time.
Because to be honest, I haven't been able to watch much of Alabama or Ohio State to be able to, like, get down to, like, the very the very a nitty gritty details of these teams because I feel like with two powerhouse schools and powerhouse teams, it really does come down to, like, what are the even small weaknesses on either team? Um, but to me, the one that's most obvious is just that feels to me is clearly better than Mac Jones.
So just because Ohio State has the better quarterback I would I would go with Ohio State in this game personally.
But that's with that's with limited Alabama viewing.
E got I forgot, like for, like, five seconds.
And this is just a hypothetical.
I was getting really excited, like damage e I was like a sauce e hope.
I would love to see this.
I would take Ohio State to, um, I don't know if they win, but I take them with the points.
I think they would have the best player on the field.
And I know they have questions on defense because they haven't played enough games.
And there's been some, um, some red flags.
But Alabama has trouble on defense to appoint.
So, um, I just take fields on the points.
Awesome. We will see.
So the last thing I want to do so you out before, uh, you can plug your stuff and let Ugo is, um, just you know, we're we the three of us are gonna pick NFL games next, but I know you're a big browns fans.
So what have you thought of the Browns this season.
And what do you think about the match this week against the Texans, Guys? I mean, s so they're they're probably gonna win Sunday.
I mean, that would be my guess.
And if they did, they would tie last season's record.
Like if they just lost the rest of the year, they would just, you know, it would be the same record.
So for us, it's just it's crazy.
Um, nothing has changed, though, because there's still third place in the A F C.
North the playoffs right now, but they'll probably I mean, it's unfortunately, yeah, Steelers were probably behind that.
I mean, I think the chiefs of the best team in football, But then the Steelers and the Ravens Air stout defense and Lamar a little questionable right now, but I think he'll I think I'll pick it up to play a little better.
But I'm very happy, obviously.
I mean, our our standards are very low here, so for them to be five and three is, uh, kind of kind of miraculous.
Um, I'm hoping with their Wyatt Teller is it was the best right guard in the NFL before you got injured, and then next job is coming back.
Um, they're getting a couple of key pieces.
They have a very questionable defense is, Well, eso most games that they're in, they're gonna be like, you know, juggernaut games.
Um, just stop watching the stud.
I like the browns winning.
I think it's gonna be close, but I think they're gonna win at home.
E would say over a field.
Yeah, I would say over a field goal.
Yeah, we'll be getting into our picks here in a little bit.
But I just wanted to get your thoughts.
Since you're the Browns fan.
Um, So, guys, do you have anything else for sure? Yacht? Yeah, definitely. Check that out.
And yeah, I appreciate it.
You bring in the big 10 back at the time, but if you want to cancel at any time, that be great.
I've seen enough.
I've seen enough football this year.
We could just watch like the A c c and I see.
See? Like that just looks a little more entertaining.
God, big time has just been a nightmare right now, but you know, guys Yeah. Thanks for having me on.
Yeah, I just My band's name is Maui Ski Club.
We just put out some music.
We're gonna put out some more here, um, in the near future.
And yeah, just, uh I got a lot of stuff that I can announce yet that I'm doing.
I've been working on, but by the end of the year, I'll announce it and some of the biggest stuff that I've kind of been, ah, part of in the entertainment industry.
So something's coming up.
Yeah, e I have to ask, Does that include? You know, when you were on Frustration Nation with Michigan hat and I you mentioned something about looking into or like, applying for being on a reality show? Is that part of the announcements coming up or No, that's not Yeah, that's not a part of it, so we'll see.
Um, yeah, that kinda fell through.
Um, but I mean, there are all the opportunities down the road.
Um, but yeah, unfortunately, that what kind of focus it was Bachelor in paradise, wasn't it? It was bachelor in paradise.
Yes. You nailed it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'm coming on my two year anniversary of my girlfriend.
I thought bachelor in paradise for being a good I thought that would be very smart.
Well, well, uh, well, thank you so much to you all for coming on and, uh, keep doing good work.
And, um, thank you for saving the Big 10.
I guess I didn't do anything, but you're welcome.
Michigan, Thank you guys very much.
I appreciate it.
AST fun as always, Looking forward to coming back on sometime in the near future.
Thank you so much, man.
All right. Awesome.
Well, let's transition from that into, uh, NFL news.
Um, I feel like NFL news.
Just kind of along with college football has been like covitz stuff.
Yeah, like it always is at this point, because then I'll figure, have co vid, or was it like, a use close contact? Well, doesn't he also have, like, a hip injury or something, too? Well, he came back from what you check your local bars has been getting in trouble again.
Uh, yeah, maybe.
I mean, Roethlisberger is old at this point, so But I don't know if you guys noticed, but on our originally yesterday when I put our point spreads together, there was not a line for Bengal Steelers, probably because there were so many players, including Roethlisberger, out.
But today they put it up and it was negative.
ERP it by seven.
So, uh, that I would assume that means Ralph Roethlisberger's good to go.
Um, So unless Mason Rudolph is worth seven points, if Mason Rudolph with one quarterback in them, they might not score seven points.
He might be the worst quarterback who's ever stepped on a football field anyways in Peterman, he I might rather roll the dice with Nathan Peter there.
Who is the other QB? That was like pretty like dope.
Guy's name? Mitchell Robiskie.
No, no, that Remember Duck Hodges Duck? Yeah.
Do they released him? Write.
His first name is Devlin, and his nickname is Duck.
He actually the duck calls like it was dope.
He was champion of, like, duck calls or whatever.
I did not know that.
Did he do it on the field, like for audible? I don't know.
I like to call it audible.
He pulls like a like the duck commander Brand Uh, but I wasn't gonna say about finally enough.
Yeah, Mason Rudolph Duck is also what he should have done in that.
God smiles, Garrett, but yeah.
Oh, I hate my spot.
You know, I was looking at ESPN scores.
I hit one of my games.
Well, uh, gentlemen, shall we get into our NFL picks? Go.
Eso starting with Thursday night Football Colts, Indianapolis Colts are visiting the Tennessee Titans.
Uh, Colts coming off a loss to the Ravens.
Titans coming off a win against the Bears.
Titans air favored by dose.
So where you guys thoughts, I'll start.
So I hate banging toe.
I hate betting for Italians because they can't hit a spread for the life of them, But I feel like Derrick Carney's gonna show up.
Um, the Colts, I mean, Philip Rivers, this is a hard game for me, but I picked I did the opposite.
What I think I was gonna do.
I'm gonna go for it.
Tightens honest to even I don't want to, but it sucks.
I'm right there with you.
I'm picking the titans to cover win and cover.
Um, I Philip Rivers.
To me, just he's been inconsistent this year just because of his age.
And I feel like, you know, he had a good game against, uh, Well, I guess he had two weeks ago.
It was when they played the Lions, right? They put up 41.
Um, so, I don't know, maybe he's due for another uptick game.
I don't know how much Derrick Henry will be.
It will do because the Colts have a really good defense.
But I I just feel like the Titans did not have not really looked good for a couple weeks now against the Bengals.
And they really didn't look good against the Bears.
The bears look looked atrocious.
So, um, I'm kind of picking the Titans.
Kind of have a bounce back game here, Which is why I'm picking them to win and cover.
Yeah, I agree with a lot of those thoughts.
Like, I think Philip Rivers is washed.
Um, the colts are kind of similar to the bears in play styles like good defense, offensive struggles, just, like less extreme on each of those.
Probably, Um, so I think Tennessee wins this game basically the same way and covers the spread.
I think Derrick Henry will have more success rushing against the Colts, and it feels like a game where he kind of would push for a bounce back because he didn't do anything against the Bears.
Yeah, right there.
I think he cracks 100 in this game, um, scores one or two touchdowns, and I think Tennessee wins and covers.
Maybe it's less than a touchdown, but I think they win by at least four or five.
By the way, Derrick Henry having 68 yards rushing is the only reason that I was kept within striking distance of Ricci and fantasy football this week.
You got like, six points from him on fantasy.
Was it? Whatever happens all right.
Jackson's at Browns We heard sir Yachts pick a little bit ago.
Brown's favored by three.
Um, I'll start on this one.
Um, I feel like at this point, I mean, I don't know how I can really.
The Browns obviously have flaws, and I will always say the Browns are still the Browns, but it's still just so.
It's so hard to pick in favor of the Texans with just how they how their season has gone.
Um, I notice Shawn Watson is still a threat, and Will Fuller can be if he can catch the ball.
But I just I just don't to me.
I'm just picking the Browns because it's It's the easy pick here.
And I just don't have any confidence that the Texans condone can win or cover.
Three. I could see the Browns winning by a touchdown.
So I think it's a proven game for both teams.
Um, the Browns are coming off a bye week.
Texans coming after second wind so that you have some momentum coming through.
But I just feel like the Browns are just gonna win because they need this one, too.
I wouldn't the text of the do, too, but I feel the Brown stadium or then tax himself.
Yeah, well, this makes the second game.
All three of us are in agreement.
I'm gonna take the Browns to the Texans.
They're just a Dumpster fire right now.
Um, like you see players talking now J.
Watt, Is he leaving or not? Like it's just there's too much going on there and the teams too bad.
Um, even though Cleveland's and consistent, I think there might be a little underrated because of the tough division there in, UM, I think they are going to be a playoff team.
I think they'll win this game by multiple scores.
All right, Uh, the Washington football team against this other football team from Detroit known as the Lions, the football team.
Detroit is favored by four mhm thistles.
Like I just I hate picking this game at this point because now things have shifted.
Where I don't wanna be the fan who roots for my team to lose, like in general.
I think that just makes you a miserable person.
Yeah, yeah, it's just like ANC for Trevor, but, like, yeah, you almost.
I'm not going to root for losses in the game like in the moment, but at this point, it's better for the team.
And so it's tough Objectively.
I think Detroit is the better team here.
It looks like Alex Smith is going to start, and I think Stafford is clearly better than Alex Smith.
Um, the biggest weakness for the Lions is the run defense, and I just don't know if Washington has the talent there to exploit that, um, like the Vikings did.
Um, I'll take Detroit here.
Toe win and cover.
Um, I don't have a lot of faith in Washington.
Yeah, well, I don't have a lot of faith in Detroit, and I don't have faith in Washington either.
And so for me, this is very coin Flip e.
And because Detroit is arrival, because I like making you mad because I like the name of the football team and that their initials are W f t.
Uh, All right, I'm going.
I'm gonna pick Washington basically for entirely arbitrary reasons, but I'm pick Washington to cover.
Well, if you think it's like a toss up game to your getting four points.
So that's just a good bet. Yeah.
I'm picking football team to plus four eso.
The Lions are zero on seven straight up, so they're not gonna win scenario.
That's not good.
It's gonna be close game SAfrican come back, but you're not gonna win it for you.
So I feel like there's gonna be football plus four.
Well, we have been in lock with our first two games.
I feel like this is the one where I fall a game Mine, But I'm talking with it.
I gotta ask you, would you rather this weekend watch the lions, the Wolverines or finished drinking your relish? I would rather I would rather go to Costco and buy a gallon size relish.
And I say that, but I'm still gonna end up watching both of my team, right? Yeah.
So it's just like, uh, you're fan. Yeah.
It's just like I don't know why I do it to myself, but it's, uh, um yeah, good options.
Speaking of bad teams, the Jaguars.
I wish I could say the Packers.
The Jaguars were visiting Lambeau Field.
Uh, Green Bay is favored by 13.5.
Uh, so this is a big number.
Um, but I was the Notre Dame game to 30 13.
5, like it's a big number, but it stays below that magic number of 14.
Um, because once you get to 14, you have to win by two touchdowns.
You're talking like blowout level 13.5.
Um, I think the Packers can cover win by two TDs.
So I hate betting and betting against the packers because I always get ****ed every ****ing time.
So I'm skipping this.
I could never get the right side of this game.
Um, funny stories.
So I was in Vegas 2011 on 11.
And I bet the packers and versus the Falcons it was supposed to be field goal.
They ****ing missed the field goal for me to cover the 16 par les $20 to win like, 800 or some **** and they ****ing listed.
So I still hate the packers, even though I'm Yeah, I'll never Good.
I ****ing Yeah, like I was gonna say, I've never gambled on the packers, and I still hate the packers.
Like, more than almost anything in this world.
So anything in existence pretty much is like above me, above the packers for me.
So, um uh, but with that, I mean, it's hard for me to pick against the Packers.
I mean, they like it sucks.
Hey, didn't you pick the package? Get out of your, uh, man, I hate it as a bear stand, but like, I mean, come on, the Jaguars like and I would maybe have a little bit of hope of men issue was starting, but I don't think he is because he's still injured.
I think eso to me.
It's like how How can you pick the job? I mean, can the Jaguars even like how many points? I mean, I know They just scored what, 24 against Houston? If they score 24 against the Packers, Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Rodgers will have, you know, scored 45.
Like I I just I just feel like the Packers win this game and blowout fashion, so I'm sticking with the Packers.
All right, The game everyone's been wanting to watch this week.
Philadelphia Eagles at the New York Giants, playing for the division? Yeah, couple powerhouse teams.
You have big division game things might get flex to the night game.
Yeah, yeah, right.
What are the Eagles? Eagles are like 34 and one holding on solid team in the NFC East.
Yeah, they are, you see, So yeah, the 34 and won first place in the Washington second at two. And six.
So really, I mean, really, the Eagles were running away with the division three and four because that e really want the Giants to still win the division there, too, and seven right now.
But it's actually still possible.
No, I mean, they're within striking.
They're only one game behind in the win column there is that they're always gonna be in the hunt.
I feel like they're like one game away from being like a top to draft pick, and they're also one game away from contending for their division.
The problem for Washington, Dallas and New York.
They're all one game behind in the win column.
But because Philadelphia has the tie because of all these things are so bad, the tie to me acts as a win because it takes like you have to beat them by one.
You have to beat them by one entire game.
So basically, you're like two games behind, even though you're technically only one, Um, it feels like the wild card, which this might make no sense, but it seems like it when it hurts you, is if you're trying to be like when you're trying to be a wild card team, that seems like that's where the ties hurt you sometimes.
But if you're trying to win the division, it's just the head to head matchups, Arm or Yeah, I'm a factor. So yeah.
Um, so I've chosen eso the Eagles air 3.5.
This is one of those games where it's just I look at it and I'm just like, this is stupid.
Why are we playing this game? Why are we Why would anyone watch this game? Eso I'm skipping it because I have no interest.
And I have really no idea who could win this game.
I feel like either team could win this game just a Z easily, So I'm skipping nice, good skin.
I'm picking the Giants plus 3.5.
Yes. I think the eagles were injured.
Giants are home like that matters, but and I'll stay in dimes.
He's a stud, so I'll pick clients.
Yeah, Kyle's that. Use that, Something.
You said that? Yeah, like it's kind of a toss up.
Like either team could equally win this game.
Usually, I like picking games like that, because if I feel like it's a toss up and then you're gonna give me points to take one, I'll just take the underdog.
Um, so I'm gonna take Danny Dimes cover.
Give me the points? Um, yeah, obviously both teams or trash, but, yeah, I'll take the 3.5.
Now I know the giant.
Do you think like I feel like Danny Dimes? Because that's the name he should be wearing.
Number 10. But I guess I was lies.
Number, right? Yeah, it was.
So they are they retiring? Ilyse Number I weird of a question like E no, he's won two Super Bowls, but it just feels like he should never have his number retired.
I mean, if I'm the Giants, I'm retiring his number.
He might Yeah, like anybody.
I'm just saying he should wear number 10 because his name his nickname.
He's his nickname is not excellent.
Buccaneers at the Panthers, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers After getting curb stomped by the old Man Breeze in the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay favored by five.
I look at this game as a bounce back game as Tom Brady is ****ed about getting blown out.
Uh, just like he was ****ed about losing to the Bears in an upset, uh, comes out the next week blows out the Packers.
I'm looking at this game as a Tom Brady revenge game, even though the Panthers air like, what did we do? Thio And yeah, So I'm picking the Buccaneers.
Thio destroy the Panthers here, which means they'll win and cover.
God, all I'm gonna say, Yeah, Sam, this Tom Brady bounce back game of the year.
This is a big **** off, too, because also, I just feel like Teddy Bridgewater is a big ****.
But Tom Brady's like, Yeah, I got this.
So he's gonna bounce back and this kill him.
I feel like because you got barest last week, So yeah, that's about it.
Yeah, it's so hard toe like, normally, you can't overdo this when you do your pics, But there's a little bit of, like, transitive property that goes into it like, Well, this team beat this team, so they're probably better than this.
And this team lost to the same team, you know, But it's like it feels like this year.
This so it's so weird with that that you can't really The NFL is different every week because there's always injuries, especially with cove it This year.
There's always people out.
There's always different players that match up better than other players.
It's impossible toe actually, like it's obvious.
Certain teams are better than other teams, and it's obvious to pick upsets.
But it's It's impossible to really say like you're saying the transitive properties.
It's impossible to really be like because this team beat this team.
Therefore, it's there is not math.
This is not a mathematical.
So it's just strange.
And yeah, Tom Brady and versus Drew Brees like it feels like next year.
That's gonna be a battle that's fought, like over a game of bingo in the nursing home.
Like you don't know what you're gonna get out of either quarterback week to week.
It's just, you know, you know, if they dio, you know that Tom Brady is probably gonna cheat on his bingo card.
Deflated? Yeah, he's gonna have a secret chip in his like, old man shirt pocket.
He's gonna have ready toe placed out on this card, or he's gonna be like, Oh, I got the bingo with the free space and there was no free space on this Big e.
Um, just because of how inconsistent both of these teams have been, how up and down Brady and the Bucks have been like.
It's just there's no way I could pick this with any degree of confidence.
I thought about taking the points and the bucks, but I just I'm gonna pass on this one, punt the ball here.
Um, yeah, I can't do this one.
That's a good call. That's a good step.
Broncos at Raiders Vegas by five.
Ah, Richie, what are your thoughts on this one? This is my lock for that topics.
So Vegas always wins.
Hey, the House always wins.
So that's number one.
Number two offenses like the Vader's offense looks cooking.
I like the Raiders a song last week.
They look great and the Broncos are missing Haftar defensive starters, so I think it's gonna be a shutout game.
Not shut up, but pretty close. Waiters.
So it's gonna be pretty close.
Raiders by million.
Yeah, eso if you've been if anybody that's watching this has seen or has listened to frustration Nation Michigan Hatton.
I picking games this entire year we've been high on the Raiders are some reason E should be at this point.
Yeah, higher than Josh Gordon.
Um, I Smith then J.
Yeah, we keep keep it coming.
I'm gonna keep rolling with the Raiders.
I mean, they they they've steered me wrong on some games, but they steered me right on more games.
They've steered me wrong on.
So I like the Raiders and the Broncos.
I really feel bad for Vic Fangio as a bear stand because he's really been dealt a tough hand there, because both years, they've just been riddled with injury, and they have, like, so much uncer*****y at the quarterback position.
Um, so it's hard to really pick the Broncos, so yeah, Raiders all the way.
Yeah, you said exactly what I was going to say is that continue to be high on the Raiders? And it feels like at this point, I'm just too invested to change this.
Like I'm going all the way to the Super Bowl.
I'm gonna pick the Raiders until they lose.
Um, and so I feel like Richard.
You mentioned this, like, with all the injuries on the defense for the Broncos.
I keep waiting on Josh Jacobs to have this huge breakout game this year.
Uh, like he's had breakout games in previous seasons, obviously.
But, like have this huge game, partly because I have him in fantasy and I'm just like, he's just consistent.
But he hasn't had, like, that huge game.
And I think this is it with all the injuries to the Broncos s.
So I think the Raiders win by multiple touchdowns.
Probably like this.
Feels like a 17 18 point win.
So I almost locked it.
I like that pick for you, Richie, but I'll just take the Raiders, uh, to cover here, you know? All right.
Chargers dolphins, Uh, in Miami, Miami, Miami favored by 2.5.
What you guys think? I thought that was like, a pretty clear picture.
I mean, sure, e.
I love I love Justin Herbert.
But the rest of the Chargers team is not as good as I mean.
The dolphins, I guess, aren't that great either.
The Dolphins have just been on a run lately, and I feel good about them winning by a field goal.
So I'm going dolphins.
So As Bob Quinn watches this game, he's watching two quarterbacks who the Lions could have drafted.
Either these guys and a lot of Lions fans myself.
He's gonna watch this game.
Well, you clearly isn't watching Lion's games.
So he must be watching something else.
I don't know, Um, but it's just like like, it's easy to look back on it now and say it.
But I was one of the multiple people who was like drafting a corner at three is you're not going to get enough value out of that unless he turns out to be, ah, Hall of Famer.
It's not worth three.
Um, So, yeah, we're gonna be able to watch two amazing rookie quarterbacks who the Lions could have both drafted.
Um, so, yeah, two of the Dolphins just had two huge wins against good teams.
Um, I I was pretty critical of them when they decided to sit, uh, fits magic, but it looks like maybe that was an upgrade to get to, uh, or at least now they're gonna be able to see what they have with them.
Um, and long term, it's a good move.
Maybe so, um, but San Diego has been losing a lot of their games, but they've been keeping it close.
Charges Los Angeles Chargers get get, have respect.
Well, I will respect them enough to take them here.
Um wow, I could see this going either way.
Eso I'll take the points and I think it's a close game.
Either way, I'm really excited to see how the quarterbacks matchup, but Herberts had a little more starting experience.
Um, so I don't know.
Yeah, I'll just I'll take the points.
Wow, I just feel like the Chargers can't win a game for the life of them.
Like to try last week, there were, like this close, but they dropped the ball.
Um, It's gonna be a high scoring game, I feel like, but it's gonna come really close to it. Looks really electric.
I'm taking Miami minus 2.
55 field goals, so yeah, I just can't see the charges winning game like I can't see it.
I just have to say I cannot wait for like, a couple years down the line when we get a A Dolphins matchup against some other team and it's to a tango viola against D J U A.
Because whenever the announcers air talking is going to sound like they're having a brain.
Hawaii? Yeah, Yeah, that's funny.
And then throw in, like from Notre Dame.
Throwing like a wuss.
A core Amara Jeremiah, Worcester Karamo Uh, something.
Anyway, that's funny.
Alright, A Woo Suk or Amoah *** UAL gaga.
Lola What? God bless you, E.
I just want to point out to this is funny.
So with all our picks so far, um, we've all been agreement on every pick except for two.
And on both of those, you guys agreed, and I'm the one who did it.
She's gonna agree with me on this next one, but yeah, probably bills that Cardinals.
This was also a line that was delayed for some reason that a little bit more digging for but Arizona by 1.5.
We're talking pre show.
5 is one of those scenarios where it's almost just like a pickup game because, you know, it's just 1.
5 is like, hardly anything.
Um Both teams have shown vulnerabilities this year.
Um, that being said after the Raiders, the bills or the next team, I'm the most high on.
So I'm gonna ride with the bills and the A F C or the NFL or No, you're saying you're not.
You think that the best you just in terms of teams, that there might be underrated the teams on the highest on would be the Raiders and then the bills.
So the bills are right up there for me.
So I'm gonna pick the bills to cover this game or where? E guess no one took like wagons like the Buffalo Bills.
So, yeah, I picked the bills plus 1.5.
It's gonna be shootout.
I don't like these type of games to bet on, like, pick up style.
But not doing over. So I can't do the over, obviously.
So if I would have pick one, I would pick the bells and it sucks, because for fantasy, I have both Kyler Murray and Josh Allen.
Okay, so they're both ****ing high school and people, so I always think color Murray because he does a little bit better.
He has the rushing yards.
Yeah, rushing yards.
I don't really have advice for you on that one, because I don't know what I Yeah, Yeah, I mostly conundrum every week.
I'm a ****. I really too good quarterback.
So, yeah, it's a good problem to have. Yeah.
So I'm gonna once again wrong and agree.
I'm gonna take the bills here.
Um, yeah, I'll take it underdogs.
But like you said, this is kind of more of a pick up game in my mind.
Uh, this is gonna be a really good one. It's two teams.
You've looked like serious contenders at times and then also had really rough patches.
You got Josh Allan Keiler, Murray, Stefon Diggs, DeAndre Hopkins.
Like it's gonna be a great game.
Justus faras the talent on both sides.
Um, so I almost skipped this one as another one where it's just like I don't know which way to go on this.
Um, but I think I'm just gonna lean on Josh Allen to stay hot.
Onda, Since I'm getting a point and a half, I'll take the bills.
Um what was I gonna say shoot.
I was I was going to say, and I can't think of his name.
And I feel bad bringing this up, but, like, we're not there yet.
Yeah, just because we're talking about the cardinals, Um, maybe you guys can help me.
I'm blanking on his name, but because it's Veterans Day.
Oh, Pat Tillman.
That's why I was thinking of just like, yeah, uh, but I don't know, just Veterans Day.
Quick shout out.
You know, thank you, everyone in serving in service.
I don't know if there's anyone who's watching or who will watch this. That has served.
And, uh, yeah, picking the Cardinals reminded me of Pat Tillman, and you know, his tragedy, tragedy and everything.
So, um, and I know there's other NFL players that have been in the military before as well, So shout out to you guys.
Thank you for keeping us safe over here, even when we're all going crazy.
All right, let's get to another game with 1.
Spread another game that I feel like it's very pick.
Um, and that Seahawks at Rams.
All right, who wants to go first? I'll go on this one? Um, this one's tough Thio.
The way you talk about teams like Vegas who it's like we both kind of we've been high on, maybe more than they deserve. At times.
The Rams are team I've been lower on than they deserve at times, Like I've just never been impressed by them.
I just don't think golf is that good of a quarterback, Um, but I just I mean, they'll win good games, and I still just don't have a lot of faith in them.
But the Seahawks have also been disappointing.
Recently, Um, a E remember talking about them like they were clearly the best NFC team.
And now there's there might be like the fourth best in a lot of people's minds.
Fourth e don't know Saints.
I'd take Cardinals ahead of them on the Packers and the Packers.
And if the Bears, if the Bears had yeah, maybe the Bucks, or if the Bears had just beat the Titans.
I put the Bears ahead of them at this point.
Does he looks just have no defense.
Bears have no offense.
Maybe that's overreaction, but I do think There's at least three NFC teams who are gonna be better than them.
Um, I do imagine.
Can you imagine what this Seahawks offense would have been like with the legion of Boom defense is what? That it's, like, weird now to think about that.
They have one of the worst defense is in football because it seems like their culture with Pierrot was built on just being a dominant defense.
So, um, yeah, after all that negativity, I'm going to take the Seahawks, though.
Um, so I think they went here.
I've also just I'm not super high on the rams.
Um, so, yeah, I'll take the point and a half.
I do think Russell Wilson is a really good quarterback.
Um, so between him and Deacon, that calf lock it like they had They have enough on offense.
I think they maybe get a late touchdown pull away.
Um, do you say lock it like you're locking it? Or like a Oh, gotta clarify that locket.
Uh, so, yeah, I'm I'm this game to me again.
Like I agree with everything you said.
Like, I've undervalued the rams at time.
Um, this season and I feel like they will put up a much bigger fight against the Seahawks and maybe what people are expecting.
Um, but I can't pick against the Seahawks.
I, the Seahawks have just I know they haven't looked great, but there's still a They have an elite offense and it's NFL's offensive league, and I don't know enough about the Seahawks old line.
The only way I see this getting in trouble is if Donald Rex the game, um, but if they can, if they can double team him or triple team him whatever you have to dio, if you could take him out of the game, you have.
You have a great chance to beat the Rams so and Jalen Ramsey can only cover either Metcalfe or lock it, they can can't cover both.
So I'm picking the Seahawks.
And if you could cover locket, that would help my fantasy team a lot.
Uh, Metcalfe run free a little bit.
Who is their number one? Technically, I think it's Metcalfe released, okay? I don't know.
I mean Metcalf, like the bigger, taller down the field target.
So maybe I just assumed he was number one.
Because of that, I don't know who has more yards, uh, or targets.
So I'm gonna Seattle to, um I do know Seattle defense does suck, but the Rams offense is not that much better.
So, uh, I'm gonna pick the Seahawks.
Honestly, like the Rams do suck.
I mean, I feel the Bears could beat them.
They should have.
Got is Golf is like a slightly better Travis Key.
Bianna, like Goff, has slightly better accuracy.
He's slightly understands, plays better, but he's practically the same.
Just, I would say, slightly better.
He was just good enough to get a massive contract.
Got like what? It seems like he has, like, a mental issue, not like mentally handicapped, but like his.
We have a sensor button on this show way.
His mental toughness is kind of how I should have said that.
Like, you better be ready for a pink piece of paper in your mailbox tomorrow.
It just seems like he's one of those guys.
Like you can look at his attitude and his, um, like, you kind of look in his eyes after a couple drives and you could tell if he's gonna lose that game or not like It just seems like he kind of gets on either good or bad.
Mo mentum swings and just, uh yeah, I don't know. It's just interesting.
I I just don't think it's that good of a quarterback.
Aunt has mental issues.
At least he doesn't see ghosts like Sam Donald, So yeah.
I'm sorry, Richard.
I cut you off. Did you make your pick? Yeah.
Once again, we all pick the same.
Niners at Saints.
Uh, New Orleans by 9.5.
Um, let me change a graphic.
Uh, while you're changing that, let me just say your man there's gonna have you been like, Oh, man, you know, like you got We've all been picking the same one.
And every now and then I pick a different one.
There's only two options, Dude.
It's bound to have it just like it's funny, because, like, I'm the one who takes the the different pick.
So either I'm gonna be in the lead at the end of this week or I'll be the one who's behind by myself.
Like, Do you want other guys we got to show to? They can.
But also go over.
Okay, uh, for this game, the Saints.
Um, man, look, the Niners are bad, and Kittel and Garoppolo are out.
Um, it the Niners or just have so many injuries.
It doesn't matter how good of a coach Kyle Shanahan is.
And I really think he has a good coach.
I just don't see how the Niners can beat the Saints and the way the Saints looked against the bucks, Um, so I'm gonna pick the Saints toe winning cover, even though 9.
5 is a bigger number for NFL.
Um, I just don't see how the Niners can win this game.
Um eso I've had issues betting on Niners games like I never know how to bet those because with all the injuries, you'd think they'd be terrible, and then they ever owned some while I have a really good game and you just gotta credit coaching for that.
Um, so when you have really good coaches and then no talent on the field, it's hard to know how accurate the line is.
Um, so really, I'm making this pic based more on the saints because It looks like they have an opportunity to really rise to the top of the NFC, um, and be either the clear best team or them and the Packers.
But, um, yeah, I'd say I think they went big here and kind of solidify their spot at the top.
So I got some statute, guys.
So the 40 Niners, therefore and five against spread.
The Saints are three and five against the spread.
So I think this is a who wants it more game.
I actually think the Niners I'm gonna do what it takes to keep it close.
So I don't get the Niners plus 9.
5 like that. Nice.
I was really tempted on Niners to be honest and my own personal notes.
I literally just wrote Niners slash saints because it was one where I was just, like, go with your gut kind of when you get here, because I really don't have a leaning either way because I could see the Niners.
Um, even though they are riddled with injury, I do think Shanahan is that good of a coach.
But I just I just logically like when you're missing your quarterback, you're running back your tight end.
Samuel might be still injured too.
Like all your like, skill position players.
You're in your 2nd and 3rd strings by now, and it's just hard to sustain anything so cool.
We got some special guests in the room.
Let's bring them on a a 21st right now on K.
We drunk? I'm not.
What's up? E mean, hold on.
Oh, you want to make a pick for the Niners and the Saints? E can't even hear you guys for real.
What's up? He can't hear us.
Right now we're picking the Niners and the same thing.
This is shots for jazz.
So we got the white boy that I beaten, chugging Hey, salty.
Hey, saltiest **** Yeah, A Whoa, Jimmy, Did you just joining girl were next to each other.
You take him out all right? Hey, goes He's like, he's like I'm 21.
He's like, I'm gonna beat you and chugging because I think I'm the ****.
I was like, e happening nice.
All right? Just because he's 21.
Could we get two more big cups I tried one again.
You ready? All right.
This is a big dad.
You chug intermission things brought to you by what we have left.
Your mom has left e think we read both of our ads earlier for college thing.
Also response about Dr Fantasy Did they left a body feeling left out and I'll my battery's about to die anyway.
But Jimmy's feeling left out by Jim, we're going to Jimmy now.
Yes, for over a table.
What's up, Jimmy? What's up? And that's jazz up.
Which bar? Yeah, which bar? You know what you want, Dio.
They want to do a chalk line.
We're doing sports right now, but we'll get back to you later.
We'll get back to you later.
We're gonna finish support.
First, we're gonna finish sports first and get back to you guys.
All right? Sorry.
Nothing to do with sports.
A good intermission.
Yeah, Good palate cleanser.
Thio, finish off the our last three NFL games here.
So a little more light hearted eso Bangles at Steelers pit by seven.
Um, I mentioned that this game had not had their spread posted until recently because of the uncer*****y with Roethlisberger.
Um, So, Richie, what are you feeling on this game? So, for this game, I'm not sure about big band on the covert protocol.
Um, I think the biggest.
For some reason, I'm not sure why I'm little high on Joe Burrow.
Um, I feel that's gonna be upset.
I don't know why.
I just feel it. It's a good feeling.
So bagels for seven.
Honestly, dude, I can't believe that we're doing this right now.
I have the Bangles, too, And it's not I don't even necessarily think the Bengals win.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I feel like the Bangles can keep this close.
And I feel like the Steelers showed major signs of concern against the Cowboys against the fourth stringer.
And Burrows like, I don't know.
I have I have a feeling that the Bengals can make this a close game.
And so I thought I was gonna be alone and picking the Bengals.
But I'm going Bengals to cover God.
Yeah, well, once again, I'm the one on the other side of just your lock.
Uh, no, it's coming up here shortly, though.
Um, so eso the been It's been interesting, like Bengals on social media, and some of their players have been kind of chirping a little bit talking a little trash, which I respect.
Um, but the Steelers air also coming off like you said, a rough game against the Cowboys, and it feels like they, even though they're undefeated, have something to prove.
Kind of, um, so Ben Roethlisberger, kind of Maybe he comes back with a vengeance if he's able to play? Um, I don't know.
This feels like I do respect what Burrows done for the Bengals, but I think this is a game the Steelers win big, Um, just because they have so much to prove, even as a undefeated team.
So you're feeling almost like a Steelers revenge game, in a way, kind of.
Just because there's a big national perception out there that the Cowboys probably should have won that game, Um, and just kind of criticism of them.
So I think there's probably a feeling there that, like we're the only undefeated team in the NFL.
Still, at this point, people kind of have stopped respecting us like they should after that game.
So I think they bounced back alright, Ravens at Patriots, Baltimore.
Favored by seven man Michigan hat.
What are your thoughts? This is my lock on, and I am taking the Ravens.
How crazy is it even think even a year ago that I would take a lock against the Patriots.
Right? Um, but they suck like they're trash this year, barely beating the Jets.
Um, man, you know they're going to get either Fields or Lawrence next year.
Oh, yeah, You just know it.
And then they're going to be great for another two decades or whatever.
Yeah, it's weird, though.
It's just like I had a lot more faith in Cam Newton coming into the season.
Like I did think his best games were behind him, but I thought he would be a better quarterback.
Then the free agent market made him look with how, like, cheap of a deal he got.
The market was right on him.
Eso He's been rough this year.
The Ravens just had an impressive win.
Their defense is elite.
Um, I think new and struggles.
I think Baltimore wins this by multiple scores.
And so I'm locking them at seven.
Ravens here is well Um, yeah.
The Patriots just look atrocious and, you know, everyone people have been saying all year long.
Like, oh, Belichick, still good coach.
Patriots will play it close, like for every game.
They say that, and I just I just don't see it happening.
So I'm going, I'm going. Pete.
I'm going raving going.
Ravens, Ravens, Ravens.
So the Patriots there are zero on three.
I get to spread in prime time.
So obviously you're saying that Baltimore minus seven.
Baltimore is actually 11 3 and one against the spread.
So they're doing well this year or not this year, but, you know, against spread.
But yeah, that's for 15 games.
It's just pictures.
Scott. I'm sorry.
Like, yeah, they can't do it.
Enjoys saying that while we can write. Yeah.
Our final game for your inaugural episode of the Shoot Your Shots Score. Cast.
Monday Night Football.
Minnesota Vikings at the Chicago Bears.
Minnesota favored by 2.
5 as one of the two Bears stands on this show.
Um, I'm gonna come out and just say, you know, the bears are my lock of the week because the Bears.
They have to have a bounce back at some point, and they're going up against prime time.
Expect a defensive dominated game by the Bears.
Defense is going to score two touchdowns.
Like I'm going all in on bold predictions here.
Kirk Cousins sucks under the lights, and that is true.
The Bears air going to absolutely dominate this game.
So my lock is the Bears.
I feel like that's everywhere.
Like Kirk Cousins sucks in prime time.
I think I saw it.
I'll be where I saw like for, like, just researching this game.
It's hilarious, but yeah, bears by a million.
Even though they're the underdogs, I'll take the money line.
I'll take the Bears plus 2.
I'll take both, um, ****er cousins in prime time.
So is this your lock to raise? You haven't used my luck with blocks early on.
Which one is yours? Raiders models.
The Raiders? Yeah, Raiders five.
Um, um I'm not gonna lock it.
E u Lock the Ravens E no, for your lock.
Okay, so we've all used all our locks and skips at this point.
Um, I am gonna take the bears to cover? Um, e I don't know, man.
So if I had to pick probably the win, I'll close game.
Um, the Vikings air probably overrated right now.
Um, so Dalvin cook had a historic, like 5, 600 yard to game stretch.
Um, I think there's a good chance that bears win the games.
I'll definitely take them with the points.
Um, I think after what they did to Derrick Henry, they're gonna be able to at least limit the damage with him.
Um and yeah, I have no faith and Kurt cousins at quarterback.
So, um, I don't know that this is like a big signature win for the Bears or anything, but I think that there's a good chance they win a close game.
Well, uh, yeah, Richie, you said bears right s.
So I I think we got through all our picks.
So the last thing we have to dio you know, we've done all of the point spreads.
The last thing we did is, uh, this episode has mentioned a couple of times by Richie is sponsored by Thrive fantasy and through our fantasy, they have all sorts of prop picks So we have all selected a prop pick of the week from the Thrive fantasy App.
So be sure to go download that news code FN fantasy when you sign up and they'll match up to $50 with your minimum deposit of 20 or more.
So, um, Richie, do you have your prop pick selected for the week? Yes.
So my prop pick is Drew Brees.
Eso the over under is to 67.
5 total past yards, taking over on Drew Brees.
I like that, Um, I for me.
I've always like talking about my loyalty, like being high on the Raiders being high on the bills.
A specific player I've been high on since they played the Bears last year is Washington's Terry McLaurin.
Um, he's in every single one of my fantasy leagues because I felt like he was good value of where I drafted him.
And he's performed pretty well this year.
He's honestly, like to me, they're primary weapon and his over under was at 0.
5 receiving touchdowns.
Um, so I because he's their primary weapon, I really like him, um, to get a touchdown.
This game, um, especially against the Lions secondary is not like amazing.
So, uh, I'm picking.
I like the over of Terry McLaurin scoring a touchdown.
That's a good pick.
Um, mine I just picked is Jonathan Taylor over 53 a half yards.
Eso He came off a rough week where he just had 22 yards last week, but, uh, he would have hit that over.
The previous four were previous five weeks before that.
Um, and I think the Titans run defense is maybe a little overvalued after the Bears game overall is because Yeah, like obviously, you beat the Bears.
Bears don't run for much, but I think that says more about the Bears run game and offensive line because the Titans defense is not good and going into the Bears game, everyone's talking about how bad their defense is.
Um, so I think Philip Rivers has some trouble.
They kind of lean on the run game, and it seems pretty easy for me to pick Jonathan Taylor with 53.
So well, with that, we got through our point spreads.
We got through our special guests.
We got through our prop picks of the week and that brings us to our first conclusion of the first episode of the shoot your shot score cast for this week.
So we're gonna have, you know, parts of the show put out as the games come up, we're gonna have the graphics put out.
