Week 6 2017: #CFB Picks from Phil Steele!

Welcome back everyone to another Wednesday, which means it is time to start posting some picks.  I have decided from henceforth, Wednesdays around here will be known as PODCAST WEDNESDAYS!  Phil Steele’s “Strong as Steele” podcast gets released at noon central time every Wednesday.  Stanford Steve & The Bear put their podcast out Wednesday afternoons most weeks (permitting their main jobs allow it).  And now that I’ve discovered Rufus Peabody’s podcast “Bet the Process”, I’ll be posting picks from that.

Anyways, here’s Phil’s picks as I interpreted them, so get them while they’re hot!  Listen to the full podcast for all the juicy breakdown.

TCU over WVU (by more than 2 TD)
LT over UAB (no play on side/total)
Ohio St over Maryland (around 47-16, no play)
USC over Oregon St (by 35, not much value on either side)
Florida over LSU (surprised spread is only 3)
Houston over SMU (by a TD)
Colorado over Arizona
W.Michgian over Buffalo
Michigan over Mich St (by 7)
Ark St over Georgia Southern
Georgia over Vanderbilt (big)
