Well well well what do you know? I was concerned about K.M Venne. Our chance at going back to back on the three-feature profit was in danger with his Week 12 performance. It looked like a long shot he’d be able to get it back. Nonetheless week 13 rolls around and K.M drops a +480 week to get himself back to a -550 and now week 14 becomes a must have week for our resident Virginia Tech fan (K.M. note: Go to hell Bryan). With the 15 game bowl special left after this week, we’re running out of games to make moves this year. If K.M loses this week he’ll have to be nearly flawless in the bowl special to get to a profit. Still, he has risen from the dead America. Once counted out with legions of internet naysayers trolling his inability to stop his slide, K.M Venne has emerged. Yours truly just dropped a +490 week to push over the $1,000 threshold and put myself in a position I’m familiar with to 2010 when a disastrous postseason robbed me of a potential profit. Should I put together a winning week here, I can all but lock up a profit for the year. You were all over me early in the year when I was down and for good reason. Part of this segment is understanding everyone wants to see us fail so I had to grit my teeth and grind it out. We’ll we’re back America. Just take the free money and don’t complain. P.S: Firing Coley was the best move this segment ever made. WORST. HYPE. MAN. EVER. (K.M. note 2: So true) Prior Weeks’ Performance Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13 Thursday’s Game Louisville (+3) at Rutgers Bryan: Winner goes to the BCS and with my BCS preseason picks fading, I’m banking on hopefully at least matching last year’s total of 5/10. Oregon is the only one I have in for certain though FSU, Bama, Louisville and Wisconsin are all playing for bids with Clemson lurking on the outside. Rutgers is a solid team, good defense, but Louisville is the better team. With all of it on the line I expect the Cardinals to go to Rutgers and win a close, competitive game straight up. Prediction: Louisville 28 Rutgers 24 (1 unit/single play) K.M: Nothing is surprising here. I am meh on Louisville. I’m down on Rutgers. Guess who I got? Prediction: Louisville 28, Rutgers 20 (1 unit/single play) Hot Hook-Up: Louisville with the points THROW YOUR L’S UP. Friday’s Games MAC Championship: Northern Illinois (-6) vs Kent State K.M: I watched a ton of Ohio this year. Made a killing. Bet a ton against Akron. Made a killing. Don’t know anything about any other MAC teams. Let’s take the favorite. Prediction: NIU 45, Kent State 35 (1 unit/single play) Bryan: If there’s a God Kent State will lose this game. No team that loses to Kentucky by 33 should be in a BCS game. Northern Illinois is America’s team this week. Kent State has been playing great football down the stretch but NIU is the defending conference champs and has the offense to give Kent State trouble. Kent State has relied on turnovers all year to win. Just don’t turn it over and I think NIU wins. But it’s #MACtion, little doubt in my mind this isn’t close. I’ll take the points. Prediction: Northern Illinois 41 Kent State 38 (2OT) (1 unit/single play) PAC-12 Championship: UCLA (+8.5) at Stanford Bryan: Stanford was a layup last week. Covered the 2-point spread on the road with ease. So laying 8.5 at home with Stanford seems like a gimme, right? Nope. I’m taking the points. UCLA’s offense can put up some points and I’m willing to bet (without seeing a second of the game) that UCLA went vanilla. Stanford is going to win this game. They’re the better team and won’t blow it on their home field. Defense leads the way but I think a backdoor cover is in play here. Prediction: Stanford 27 UCLA 21 (1 unit/single play) K.M: Stanford’s home field and decided schematic advantage should make all the difference. Stanford scored me two units last week. Let’s stick with what works. Prediction: Stanford 31, UCLA 20  (2 units/DOUBLE PLAY) Saturday’s Games SEC Championship: Alabama (-8.5) vs Georgia K.M: Roll ************* Tide. Georgia has NO prayer. Bryan is lying his ass off below that he even thinks Georgia can cover. He knows Bama is going to rout. Tweet him at @BDohertyTSHQ1 and mock him for being such a Tide denier. Prediction: Alabama 35, Georgia 10 (3 units/TRIPLE PLAY) Bryan: I said in the SSR this week I was hoping to lay less than 7 or getting 10 or more. I just didn’t want a spread between 7-10, so Vegas of course nails it with an 8.5 point spread. Makes this game extremely tough. I can’t see Bama blowing another game this close to the national title. Nonetheless Bama’s defense has shown it’s susceptible to some offenses recently and UGA has played well the last two months. Georgia’s defense also has improved drastically since September and is rounding into form. I think I’ll wind up regretting this but I’ll lay the points. Prediction: Alabama 30 Georgia 17 (1 unit/single play) Hot Hook-Up: PAWWWWWWWWWWWL laying the points ACC Championship: Florida State (-14) vs Georgia Tech Bryan: Noles big. Worse thing that could happen to Georgia Tech was Florida State losing to Florida last week. Georgia Tech’s defense is ass and while this line looks appetizing, Florida State will send a message early in this game. The Noles run game should gash GT repeatedly and while Mark Stoops going to Kentucky is a late dilemma for them to deal with, it shouldn’t matter to much in a game they have infinitely more talent. Only concern is the Noles have been pretty average away from home. If Georgia Tech hears from the NCAA that their waiver has been accepted before Saturday then I’ll be much more calm about this. Prediction: Florida State 45 Georgia Tech 20 (1 unit/single play) K.M: I’ll take the Bees straight up. Yea, I just did this. Losing this game would be the most Florida State **** ever. Prediction: Georgia Tech 35, Florida State 34 (1 unit/single play) Big Ten Championship: Nebraska (-3) vs Wisconsin K.M: T-Magic is very lucky Johnny Assball showed up on the scene and condensed all my QB hate. But I still don’t like him. Wisconsin has frustrated me all year. Win this game and they can redeem it all. Make me proud, home state. Prediction: Wisconsin 28, Nebraska 27 (1 unit/single play) Bryan: Badgers go to another Rose Bowl. They had chance after chance to beat Nebraska last time the two teams played and I think Nebraska has just been avoiding upsets down the stretch. Wisconsin isn’t nearly as good as they were expected to be this season but they’ve been waiting for this one game only for about two months. Nothing else mattered to them because since late September it has been Big Ten title or bust. Nebraska and Bo Pelini will struggle to slow my boy Montee Ball and Bret Bielema will enjoy probably the last trip he ever gets to the Big Ten title game as long as Urban is still coaching in the division. Prediction: Wisconsin 34 Nebraska 28 (1 unit/single play) Hot Hook-Up: Bucky bro-ing it up with the points
