Week 9 Further Review College Football Picks

Further Review w Hoover and RewDon King maintained his lead in the Further Review College Football Picks and is now considering starting his own 900-number betting service.

As the college football season hits its final month, King’s 3-3 last week was enough to keep a five-game cushion between himself and Lauren Rew, who was 4-2 last week, and John Hoover, who also went 3-3.

Hoover did pull off Further Review’s first 6-0 week straight up, though it didn’t help much: King and Rew were both 5-1.

Surely you can do better.
