It’s time for the weekly Tiki and Tierney 6-Pack of Picks, with Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney each picking six games this weekend – three college and three pro.
Tierney is 30-21-3 on the season, while Barber is 30-23-1
Looking ahead to this weekend, Barber likes Washington (-2.5) against Minnesota, Green Bay (-3) at Tennessee, and is taking the over on Cowboys/Steelers (50).
“We like Tennessee, they’re old school, and they’re getting a little bit better,” Barber said. “Marcus Mariota is becoming a really good quarterback in the National Football League, but he’s not a great quarterback. With DeMarco Murray banged up, Derrick Henry didn’t play last week, that old-school, run-down-your-throat mentality is not going to work. Green Bay is going to win this by a touchdown.”
Barber also likes Texas A&M (-10) against Ole Miss, Colorado (-15.5) at Arizona, and Nebraska (-7) against Minnesota.
Tierney, meanwhile, likes New Orleans (-3) against Denver, the Jets (-2) against the Rams, and the Bengals at the Giants (EVEN).
“Saints are getting points and they’re at home?” Tierney asked in disbelief. “Siemian doesn’t move the football. I like the Saints plus-three. I feel pretty confident with that.”
He also likes Georgia (+10) against Auburn, is taking the over in Notre Dame against Army (51), and is taking the under against Michigan State and Rutgers (56).
