MAC Blogger Pick'em Week 4

New, 3 comments

The title defense for "Let's Go Rockets" took a bit of a hit last week as just about everybody made up ground on the duo. The two headed monster of MAC Blogger Pick'em are still the only blog that is perfect in conference play, so as the OOC wraps up overcoming any lead may be difficult.

I'm adding a 'preview; column to this weeks games. Where there is a game involving a blogger's team I will put their preview in that column.

Central Michigan -2.85 NORTHWESTERN FUC
PURDUE -3.18 Toledo LGR

Ballot Notes: Teams: Poochie (Most commonly picked underdog): Due to what may be a computer fluke Northwestern has been tabbed an underdog by CollegeFootballPolls, So naturally a lot of bloggers are picking the 'underdog' in that game (Vegas has them as 7.5 point favorites. There was a similar *TRAP* with Temple and UConn last week.

  • NorthWestern (Picked eight times)
  • Ohio (Picked five times, 3.67 point dogs)
  • Toledo (Picked five times, 3.18 point dogs)

Road Warriors (Most often picked road teams): Well without looking I can tell you it will be all MAC teams this week, not a single home game in the conference (Free shout out to the first person to tell me the last time that happened)

  • Ohio (Picked five times, 3.67 point dogs)
  • Toledo (Picked five times, 3.18 point dogs)
  • Northern Illinois (Picked four times)

Home Boyz (Most often picked home team): Giving some of the epic drubbings that may be in store this week there is a three way tie for first (as per usual the spread break a tie, in this case it's the biggest spread)

  • Ohio State (Unanimous pick 45 point favorite)
  • Iowa (Unanimous pick 25 point favorite)
  • Connecticut (Unanimous pick 19 point favorite)

Blogger Notes: Kennel Club Member (Most dogs picked): So far, with one ballot outstanding The MAC Daily's impressive pack holds the edge.

  • The MAC Daily: 4 Dog
  • Hustle Belt: 3 Dog
  • Falcon Blog: 3 Dog

Dog Hater (Fewest Dogs Picked): If Mike from 'Red and Black Attack' picks even one dog then we have the first week with no cowardly ballots (zero underdogs picked), no pressure Mike. Still the hiccup in the spread of NorthWestern and CMU cheapens this.

  • Over The Pylon: 1 Dog
  • The Owls Nest: 1 Dog
  • Fire Up Chips: 1 Dog

Dare Devil (Most daring pick of the week): Kyle's pick of Villinova (33 points) back in week one has sat as the most off the wall pick of the season, until now. I don't care if Akron is 'only' a 16 point dog, the pick by The Mac Daily blows Kyle out of the water. I would not Pick Akron to beat a jaywalking ticket, let alone an FBS team.

  • The MAC Daily: Akron over Indiana.
