Streaking the Lawn ACC Pick 'Em: Week 5

Geoff Burke

Show off your NCAA football knowledge and compete for prizes in Streaking the Lawn's ACC Pick 'Em Challenge

It's week 5, and time for another exciting week of Pick 'Em. We've got 8 games on tap this week, half of them ACC matchups and half out-of-conference meetings. It's...not the world's most thrilling week of ACC football, with the UVA-Pitt game expected to be the closest (a 6 point spread).

If you don't remember the rules: Post your picks for the 10 ACC games this week down in the comments. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick FSU in the FSU-BC matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and win by more than 21.5 points). Here's a link to last week's competition.

At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You need to pick 80% of games to qualify - I did the math, and if you don't have at least 45% of games picked to date, you are sadly out of the running for prizes (but feel free to keep playing along!).

Remember, the GT - VT game is tonight (So that pick must be in by 7:30 PM)

Here are our week 5 picks and comments:

Game Consensus Comments
VA Tech @ GA Tech (-7) GT It's fun to pick against Virginia Tech, and it's worth our while - VPI is 0-2-2 ATS so far this year. Not happening this week either. - BAS
FSU (-21.5) @ BC FSU Florida State has been an absolute juggaurnat against lesser competition this year...and BC counts as "lesser competition." -BAS
Wake Forest @ Clemson (-28.5) Clemson Clemson is angry that everyone doubts them since they could only beat NCSU by 11. Poor Deacons. - WC
Miami (-18.5) @ USF Miami Never not picking Miami to cover ever again after last week. - WC
ECU @ UNC (-12) ECU UNC has only covered once this season...against Middle Tennessee State. Not only will ECU cover, they have a decent chance at winning. -BL
Central Mich. @ NCSU (-23.5) NCSU CMU is really bad. Also they're called the Chippewas. -PG
Virginia @ Pitt (-6) Virginia Half of this game will be entertaining to watch: Pitt's O v. UVa's D. The other half ... hide yo kids, hide yo wife. -PMW
Troy @ Duke (-10.5) Duke Duke: I believe. -BL

And here's you guys' records so far (checking your scores is recommended). Good luck!
