The NFL season gets started tonight with the Steelers going into New England to take on the Patriots. The line is a little tricky here. I think the Pats win the game but by a TD? The Steelers can score some points and New England is on a "Us against the world" mentality after the whole Tom Brady debacle. I'm not going to play a side but I do feel confident in the total.
PLAY OVER 51.5
Good luck everyone
I got off to a good start on Thursday cashing in with Minnesota+14.5. Saturday I have 3 games locked in...lets go.
Penn St (-7) @ Temple
The Nittany Lions battle their in-state foes as they head to Philly to take on the Owls. Both teams have very good defenses and points will be at a premium in this contest. Temple is looking for revenge as they took a beating last year out in University Park. But now they get the Nittany Lions at home and are getting points vs a sub par offense especially at QB. Penn St is 0-7-1 ATS over the last two seasons on the road. Match that up with Temple's strong 11-6 ATS record vs Non-conference teams and you have yourself a play.
Louisville vs Auburn(-10.5) *played in Georgia
The Cardinals take on the Tigers on neutral ground Saturday in Atlanta. Auburn comes in with a well rounded team. They run the spread offense which can always cause a problem for any defense. They also have a star on defense in Cassanova McKinzy who racked up 91 tackles last season. The Cardinals have a solid RB in Brandon Radcliff who the game plan will be planed around. On defense they lost a ton of players but they do have a beast on the DE in Sheldon Rankins who recorded 9 sacks last season. The game actually looks pretty evenly matched so this number is a little high. Plus throw in the fact that Auburn 8-11 ATS vs non conference opponents. I'm taking the points in a game decided by a TD.
PLAY ON : Louisville+10.5
Arkansas St @ USC (-27.5)
This is the classic case of the big name school from the Pac 12 taking on the no names from the Sunbelt. But for people that actually watch the games they know that the Red Wolves have a top flight offense. Led by RB Michael Gordon and QB Fredi Knighton along with a trio of big time WR. The Trojans are solid no doubt. But Arkansas St is getting zero respect here. Especially with a 6-1 ATS record as non-conference dogs of 24 points or more. On the flip side USC has been a money burner going 0-4 ATS as non-conference favorites of 24 points or more.
PLAY ON: Arkansas St+27.5
good luck everyone!!
First play of the season comes Thursday night.
TCU(-14.5) @ Minnesota
One of the best QB/WR combo's in the nation with the Horned Frogs Boykin/Doctson go against a very talented secondary of the Golden Gophers. Laying big wood on the road is always dangerous. Minnesota's offense is nothing special but neither is TCU's defense.
Take the home dog. Good Luck everyone!
Play on Minnestoa+14.5
I haven't posted on here for a minute..but wanted to start back up for the college hoops season. Tonight I like 5 games. I play the same amount on every game. Here we go...
The Bonnies have OWNED this series to say the least. St Bonaventure leads the series 28-7 all time and has won 5 straight. That also includes 17 of the last 18 meetings. last year these two team met and it went to the Bonnies 58-43. I expect the same kind of result here tonight. Siena may keep this game a little closer because it's home. But a double digit victory seems legit.
The Pride are coming off a ass kicking but to be expected versus Louisville. The 2 games prior to that the y averaged 84 points. So the team can score. They have a nice 1-2 punch with Upshaw and Nesmith. The Spiders will be tough at home. But I think the line is too high here with a team in Hofstra that can play with a mid major.
The Nittany Lions are back on their home court tonight and I think that is what makes the difference here. Penn St was blown out last season by this LaSalle squad so revenge is on their minds. Plus the Nittany Lions have one of the top players in the Big 10 with Tim Frazier 22.3 ppg. Lay the small number.
The opposition gets alot tougher tonight for the Cowboys as they face off against Memphis. But I still think that the Cowboys have too much of a balanced attack for the Tigers and that will wear them down. Yes the Tigers have an awesome back court but it will be too much for them to over come. Close game thru out but the Cowboys win 82-70.
Normally I don't like betting road favorites (in any sport) but I have 2 on my card tonight. Arizona St goes on the road for the first time this season after a perfect 3-0 start. UNLV is tough at home but the Sun Devils have too much talent Bachynski, Carson and Marshall will be too much for the Rebels.
Good luck everyone
As I love do love baseball as much as anyone..I don't bet it. I mean the rare play here and there but nothing serious. Every year i look forward to the first week of college football if not for anything just to get my sportsbook fired up again. While there is a full slate of games for this saturday, not too many games stood out at me except for this one. Here we go....
UConn @ Michigan (-2.5)
I'm a little annoyed with myself for not putting this play in earlier. The line opened with the Wolverines as a 3 point favorite. Now it has gone down a half a point as the money seems to be coming in on the Huskies,as it should be. UConn has covered their last 7 opening lined games and was 6-0 ATS last season an underdog! The Huskies could have easily finished with double digit wins last season. They lost a total of 5 games by a combined total of 15 points. UConn is also a money making 41-23 ATS in non-conference games the last 11 seasons. I don't like Michigan at all this season. Outside of Tate Forcier I really see this team struggling again this year and Mr Rodriguez will be out of a job.
PLAY ON UCONN+2.5
good luck everyone..remember its a long season
