What are Barstool’s Mortal Locks for Week 8?

What is a mortal lock? We know a lock is a pick that a handicapper is confident in, but a mortal lock takes this one step further. This is a bet that a handicapper is incredibly confident in and it is one of the best lines you could get, per this analyst. Of course with the satirical nature of Barstool sometimes, this goes overboard. The hosts of the Barstool Pick ‘Em podcast aren’t necessarily the sharpest, so their mortal locks aren’t exactly the definition of the word. With that said, they are provided each week in one of the most popular segments of the show.

Without further ado, here are the Week 8 mortal locks for college football.

Portnoy’s Mortal Lock

  • Texas A&M -21 vs. South Carolina

Big Cat’s Mortal Lock

  • Pittsburgh -3 vs. Clemson

Rico Bosco’s Mortal Lock

  • Cincinnati -27.5 vs. Navy
