Blogger So Dear ACC pick'em week 6

Most people in the contest were successful in their "lock" picks from week 5, meaning those who were not fell a bit behind. Everyone but our very own Rob R. incorrectly took FSU to cover.

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Eight people received four of a possible six points in Week 5 and HailtotheDeacons of OGBoards fame took over sole possession of first place with 18 points. With 5 weeks in the books this means that he has received 18 of 30 points on the year, not a bad percentage.

In the event that there is a tie at the end of the year, the tiebreaker will be best pick percentage (with locks only counting as one point). This week features another interesting slate of five games, headlined by the Virginia Tech-UNC battle taking place at Kenan. The most intriguing pick of the week in my opinion is Virginia traveling to Duke where the Devils are favored by a point. I'd be interested to see how many conference games over the past decade that Duke has been favored. It cannot possibly be too many.

This week's picks:

Wake Forest @ Maryland (-5)
Georgia Tech @ Clemson (-10)
Florida State @ N.C. State (+14.5)
Virginia Tech @ UNC (-4)
Virginia @ Duke (-1)
