Week 6 CFB

Was thinking Missouri tonight, but an inch or two of rain during game time won't help their passing attack. I'm either going to avoid it or bet the under with the wetlands.

Honestly don't see much this week.

Took Missouri as the home dog, but have not had a chance to look at much this week due to work. Try and have some picks tomorrow.

Under 51 would have been a phenomenal bet.
