Pick 6 - Week 8: It Had to Happen Sooner or Later

Welcome to this week's Pick 6, where we analyze the lines for the weekend's Big Ten games and each pick 6 of our favorite bets.  It's highly scientific.  It's easy money.  It's just for fun.  So, clearly we are not responsible for you losing your ass off if you take our advice.

 

First let's take a look at last week's results:

So it finally happened.  Our guest picker came out on top this week.  Hawkaloogie hit 5 out of 6 picks, missing only on the OSU/Purdue Over.  Congratulations big guy, and may Hurricane Rick lodge a two by four deeply in your rectum.  In order to make sure this never happens again, I have invited Buddy Light to pick this week.  And so far, it's looking promising.  Here's the grid:

In case you're not sure, the answer is yes....Buddy Light actually picked a push on the Iowa-MSU over/under.  Stupid?  Ballsy?  Maybe.  But no one ever fucks with with the stupidest, ballsiest guy in the room.  He said he had a good feeling about 27-16.  Plus, he added, "why the fuck not?"  I dare you to try to argue with that logic.  I say we give him 6-1 odds.  Overall standings and trends after the jump.
