September 30th, 2010

We rode an obvious pick to a win last week, and now we’re 3-0. This week, we’re going back under the radar in search of a winner.

1. Tennessee over Denver – This pick is a little off the board, but here’s our reasoning. One, the Titans have looked good this season – winning convincingly at home against the Raiders and on the road at the Giants while playing good defense against the elite Steelers. And Denver, despite putting up a bunch of passing yards, hasn’t played consistently in the red zone in losses at Jacksonville and at home against the Colts. They do have a home win against the Seahawks, but the bottom line is that this team that’s 3-10 in its last 13 games isn’t good enough to go on the road and beat a quality team like the Titans. So take the Titans this week to keep you alive in your eliminator pool.

Is Ichiro the best hitter of all-time?

By: Chris Ross

Everybody knows that the Japanese make high quality machinery, and one of the best products to come out of Japan is the machine-like Ichiro Suzuki.

Last week, Ichiro became the first player in Major League history to have 200 hits in an astounding 10 straight seasons. Of course, with any phenomenal stat for any athlete there is always talk of where that athlete ranks towards others of his kind. There have been so many great hitters that have come and gone in the Major Leagues, and we have to wonder where Ichiro ranks among them?

There is no doubt in my mind that Ichiro is one of the greatest hitters of all time, but what is questionable is his status of the greatest ever.

In addition to my miserable performance with my 10 weekly picks against the spread last Saturday, I didn’t do too hot in picking potential upsets either.  Not a single one of the seven underdogs I offered were able to pull out a victory, and my double-digit longshot got manhandled by a vastly superior opponent.  Still, to be fair, there weren’t many upsets to be picked last week, with the exception of the big wins by NC State and UCLA that no one envisioned.  These are ordered from smallest underdog to largest, and the value in each parentheses represents the number of points by which each team is currently an underdog according to the World Sports Exchange.

Western Michigan (+2.0) vs. Idaho- See my analysis for this game in my picks of the week entry below.
