College Football: Week 10 Picks

The lesson we've learned thus far this season: the more you gamble, the better the results. Last week, we only took three games and lost two of them.
Let's go back to the well with a full slate of seven games.
Auburn -38 - The Tigers go out of conference to take on a Chatanooga team coming off a loss to perennial powerhouse, Elon. Why are they even playing this game? Cam Newton will rack up four TDs before resting the whole second half. Auburn 49-3.
Utah +5 - The Utes have not lost a home game in over three years (Air Force, September 2007). Until it happens, I'm taking the points.
Hawaii +23 - Quietly, the Rainbows (I'm holding strong to this nickname) are riding a five-game winning streak and sit atop the WAC. Arguably, this is the Broncos' toughest game remaining.
Oregon State -4 - The Beavers play the most difficult schedule in the country. By year's end, they will have faced five teams in the top-10. They need to pick up W's where they can. They actually control their own destiny as it pertains to the Pac-10 crown too.
Arizona +10 - My preseason pick to win it all came up a bit short against Oregon State earlier this year, but that has been their only slip-up. They have looked great ever since.
Best Bet: Oklahoma -3 - This is more of a wager against Texas A&M than it is for Oklahoma, but until the Aggies can win a big game (haven't done so since 2006), I cannot support them.
Upset: Baylor +7.5 - Tough to figure this spread as the Bears are fresh off a huge road victory at Texas while the Cowboys struggled with Kansas State a week after getting smoked by Nebraska.
Record: 35-25-1 (Best Bet: 6-3; Upset: 4-4-1)
