Heading into Week 6 of the TNIAAM pick'em contest we have a brand-new leader, a tight race for the top spots and a whole lot of pickers asking themselves, "should I start betting on college football games?"
The answer to that question is, "NO! Don't even think about it. When you actually start betting is when you actually start losing."
Anyway, this week features a could new wrinkles as there are six games featuring the HOME TEAM as the underdog. Some by double digits.
Also, I tossed in a W.T.F. Showdown near the bottom because, well, why the f*** not.
