9 wins and 6 losses last week, including 3 dogs on the ML. The haters and doubters are sick! And we are just getting started. A 14 play card this weekend, my blog for the NFL slate is already out, let’s win some money!
I will start with straight bets and go from there. Kentucky -5 at home against Mizzou. As you know, I was on Kentucky’s win total over 7.5. This is an important game for that. Everything I saw from Big Blue week 1 makes me even more excited and confident in this pick.
Texas -7 at Arkansas. Texas looked really good in week 1 against a solid ULL team. Sark seems to have things under control. And while Arkansas did cover against Rice, they did not look impressive doing so. Horns Up.
NCST -2.5 at Mississippi St. I again have the NCST win total over and this is a big game. The Pack looked amazing against South Florida, winning 45-0. Miss St squeaked out a win over Louisiana Tech. NCST to roll here in week 2.
Liberty -5 against Troy. I have no idea why this line is so small. I may be falling into a trap. But Malik Willis is a very good QB, Hugh Freeze is a very good head coach, and Liberty is just the better team in this game.
RUTGERS BABY! I was all over the Scarlet Knights week 1 against Temple, and nothing has changed as they are a 2.5 point favorite against Syracuse. I think we are seeing 2 programs headed in opposite directions. Rutgers is starting to assert itself in the BIG 10, while Syracuse is falling off in the ACC. Slamming Rutgers.
Teaser time. Notre Dame down to -10.5 at home against Toledo. The Rockets just do not have the players to match up with ND. This might be close at the half, but ND will surely pull away late. I have that with Costal -19.5 against Kansas. Kansas was lucky to beat an FCS team, I think Costal might win this game by 40.
Two big spreads here with a teaser of Boston College and Purdue. BC is playing UMASS and the line comes down to 31.5. BC beat Colgate 51-0 last week, and I believe we see a similar result in week 2. Purdue comes down to -28 against UCONN. Uconn lost to Fresno State week 0 45-0, and then Holy Cross week 2 38-28. Purdue and BC in blowout wins.
Utah down to -1 against BYU. Utah is just the better team. This is in BYU so the crowd will be a factor, but the Utes should pull away late with the talent gap. This is with Iowa up to +10.5. Another rivalry game with Iowa and Iowa State. Iowa looked great last week against Indiana, and Iowa State looked below average against NIU. I think I may end up taking Iowa on the money line as well, but I love them here getting 10.5.
Texas comes down to -1. I said I already like taking Texas straight, so obviously I love them in a teaser. This is with USC down to 11.5. USC plays Stanford at home on Saturday. USC looked really solid against San Jose St, and Stanford looked horrid against Kansas St. Fight On.
Going with Texas again here. I have them with Houston down to -2. Houston should have beat Texas Tech last week. A few last minute nonsensical occurrences took the win away from the Cougars. I fully expect Dana to have his boys buzzing and roll right over Rice this week.
Hitting on Utah again in this teaser. I have them paired with Texas A&M. The Aggies are coming down to -10.5 against Colorado. A&M has too talented of a team for this game to be close. Maybe in the first half things are not crazy, but the Aggies will pull away at some point and win this game by multiple touchdowns.
Virginia comes down to -4 at home against Illinois. We got burned by Illinois week 0 as they beat Nebraska, but that does not happen this week. At home, with the crowd buzzing, I expect Virginia to show its speed and run past Illinois. This is with Ohio St down to -8.5 at home against Oregon. I think Oregon is a fraud. With fans back in The Shoe, Ohio St will keep the good times rolling and blow out the Ducks.
I hit on Ohio St again here. They are teased with TCU who comes down to -4.5 at home against Cal. The Golden Bears did not look good against Nevada, scoring a TD on both of their 2 first drives, and then only getting a field goal the rest of the game. TCU will exploit a weak PAC 12 team and pull off an easy win.
And the last play is Texas A&M with TCU.
ND -10.5 Costal -19.5
BC -31.5 Purdue -28
Utah -1 Iowa +10.5
Texas -1 USC -11.5
Texas -1 Houston -2
T A&M -10.5 Utah -1
Virginia -4 Ohio St -8.5
Ohio St -8.5 TCU -4.5
TCU -4.5 T A&M -10.5
