Streaking the Lawn 2014 ACC Pick 'Em: Week 1

New, 3 comments

Heeeeeere we go!

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome everybody to the inaugural edition of Streaking the Lawn's ACC Pick 'Em!

We'll be here, every week, all season, picking each Atlantic Coast Conference team's games against the spread.

To play, just  submit an entry using the Google form. We'll update standings weekly, usually on Thursdays.  You can still drop your picks in the comments...but we're only counting those using this form:

The first game is Thursday at 9 PM, so get your picks in by then! (After this time, you won't be allowed to pick the WF-ULM game, but you can still pick the others up to Saturday at noon).

Remember, we are picking these games against the spread. If UCLA is a 21 point favorite over UVA (-21), and you pick UCLA, you are picking the Bruins to win by 21 points or more. If UVA loses by 20, then Virginia "wins" (though...it won't really feel like it in Scott Stadium).

Here are the lines for week 1 - note that multiple games against FCS teams are not on the board in Vegas, and we won't be picking them.  Matt Trogdon took a game-by-game look in his Vegas odds post yesterday.

Wake Forest @ Louisiana-Monroe (-1.5)

UCLA (-21) @ Virginia

Georgia Southern @ NC State (-20.5)

Boston College (-17) @ UMass-Amherst

Clemson @ Georgia (-7.5)

Oklahoma State @ Florida State (-17.5)

Miami @ Louisville (-3.5)

Villanova @ Syracuse (OFF)

Delaware @ Pitt (OFF)

Wofford @ Georgia Tech (OFF)

William and Mary @ Virginia Tech (OFF)

Liberty @ UNC (OFF)

Elon @ Duke (OFF)
