I'm in this NCAA survivor pool where i have to pick 2 winners. The catch is the spread for the game has to be 21pts or less and both teams I pick must win. Just like any other survivor pool, I can only use a team once. I know Bama is a lock but not sure if I want to use them this early. Which of these games do you like? Remember they only have to win straight up:

S Carolina/UNC
Minn/UNLV
Fresno St/ Rutgers
Cincy/Purdue
NCSt/LaTech
Maryland/FlaIntl
OkSt/MissSt
Ark/ULL
Bama/VaTch
Marshall/MiaOh
Aub/WastSt
UCLA/Nevada

I'm liking Maryland, NcSt, Bama, Marshall, Ark

yeah, probably the best time as any to use maryland. same could probably be said for minny. you may not want to burn bama or marshall yet.

i would personally avoid nc state and arkansas, but GL either way.

They have UCF at -21.5 so i can't use them. I do like UCLA and Minn too. Week 1 is always the scariest time bc you just dont know much about some of these teams.

Mr. D, thinking Auburn and Minnesota would be two good early plays.

Best of luck....sounds like fun.

It seems like Minn is getting lots of love over UNLV. Auburn i'm sure will win but they make me nervous. Maybe Minn and UCLA will be a good pair and I can save Bama for another day.

I like your thinking GQ but I hate USCjr with a passion bc i'm a Clemson fan. With my luck, I'll pick those losers and they will garbage the bed and I'll be out week 1. lol. I think I will take Minn and maybe UCLA or Maryland

-21 at 5 Dimes.

I would just look at the ML odds and not worry about burning a team.

thorpe, I have to use the lines that are on the website that we are using to run the pool. I do like UCF to win easily. I was thinking of waiting to Thursday morning to do my picks but the line for some of these other games but bump past 21.

I like UNC as well but mainly because I hate the COCKS!! But really, they are known to start slow so I can see UNC hanging around.

 With no hesitation ---Marshall should be one of your teams. The Herd might be good for a 50 spot in this game.

gl with your survivor.
