Week 6 NFL Picks + NCAA Top 25 Upset Pick

Ok, I’m doing pretty darn good selecting my NCAA Top 25 Upset pick of the week (three of out four after I correctly predicted Michigan State over Michigan last Saturday).  On the flip side, after a sub-par 6-8 for Week 5 of my NFL picks, I find myself for the very first time ever below .500 (30-32).  I’m looking for redemption this week, so here are my picks for NFL week 6 and my upset pick in the NCAA Top 25 (my picks for each game highlighted in BOLD):
