Week 6 picks: A new month, a new start
A .500 start to the season wasn't bad. But it could certainly be better.
Never a doubt about USC scoring less than 48.5 points last week, right?
Hey, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
A missed extra point, coupled with the disappearance of the Trojans’ offense in the fourth quarter, helped get us back to .500 just before the close of the season’s first month.
Will the first weekend of October prove to be Separation Saturday? We sure hope so.
Ohio State -19.5 vs. Maryland (FanDuel)
Credit to Maryland for starting off 5-0, but let’s face it: That schedule has been brutally bad, ranking 132nd in Jeff Sagarin’s SOS ratings. And it’s not like hot starts are new for the Terrapins, as they started 3-0 last year and 4-0 in 2021.
