Questions about leans

Several people have asked me about "leans" - which side looks the best even if I am not playing it

What I do is I play all of my leans and regular plays in the Covers contest.  I don't have a set time that I turn all of them in but if anyone wants to check where the leans are, they will be in the Covers NCAA contest along with the regular plays.

Currently I in the upper 3% of contestants for CFB and about a bit less in the NFL.   I don't play to try to win the contest but I do use as a way to point out that my handicapping is okay and not a lot of BS like we see on the forums.

NFL Record on the Blog thus far this season is 25 Wins and 20 Losses for a 56% WP (about where I expect to be over a large number of plays so things are on target up to this point)
Will have CFB updated record later tonight or tomorrow.

Adding Southern MIss +8

Southern Miss +8 - not the greatest team by any means but UNT is pretty weak too.

May drive over tonight and watch this one in person.

UNC -2.5 vs Ga Tech

So why am I taking North Carolina and laying 2.5 vs Ga Tech?
Looks to me like some sharp money likes UNC and therefore, so do I.

Virginia Head Coach continues to blow game

Mike London, head coach at Va, continues to impress me (negatively0 with his disorganized, and undisciplined approach to coaching.

He personally lost the game with his team being unable to function in the last 2 minutes.  Penalties, delay of game, dumb calls allowed Duke to come from behind and win.

What a dumbass!!

Add New Mexico +7.5

Late Breaking - Scratch OU and W Kentucky

Getting Lazy on the BLog

Hit Pitt winner last night
On Houston tonight but I laid -9 after it opened at -6.  Would be nice to anticipate games BEFORE they move.

Tomorrow, here a few games that I will be on for sure

Maryland -5 vs Iowa  ( sharp $ looks like MD as well early line move on MD)  Maryland has some speed this year and will probably just out speed the plodding Hawkeyes.

OU -7 - I love to bet really good teams when the public is pissed at them.  OU is a good team but square bettors have driven the line from OU -10 to OU -7.  Not often we get value like - Unloved Favs are not as good as they used to be however.  Still, not terrible and I am playing OU.  Blow out of KState

W KY -4- Low visibilty game with a lot of reasons to play WKY

Va + 3 vs Duke - Everybody loves Duke.  Some love Va.  Va has a moron for coach while Duke has this years favorite genius as their coach.  Duke has an offense as but VA can play defense, even with an idiot for a head coach.  Looks like Va to me.

3 MAC Games that all look the same -  MAC dogs that are bet early have been money in the bank this year.
Western Michigan has been fantastic,  Ohio less so but not horrible.   (still, I refuse to play Kent under any circumstances)
Pick these 3 games and you most likely hit 2 for a winner/

BC +5.5 vs Clemson - Lemme tell you, BC is one tough bunch.  They run the ball down your throat and then s... [More]

Thursday Oct 9 NFL

Houston looks like the play tonight.

Currently, the line is Hous +2.5.

I am going to wait and see if any of my outs move the line to -3, -110 or better.'

If not, I will play Houston on the ML instead of getting only 2.5 pts.
