Decided to post over here at Wagerline since it's not seeing much action these days, sadly. Anyways I welcome comments and any insight people have on my plays. I also encourage anyone lurking to make a thread and give us your opinions. Hopefully we can get this board active again like it was before the merge.
Plays locked in so far:
-Liked how their D played in the second half against Utah. I think the offense will gel better in this game against a weaker opponent. I expect them to lock it down from the get go on D and put up enough points to cover the 2 TD's.
Notre Dame -21.5
-They were terrible last year no doubt, but this JV team they are playing this week should not cause too much problem. The Domers will be fired up for this game and I look for them to take out some anger on the Aztecs. Only thing that worries me is if the Fat Man calls off the dogs and they get a back door.
Utah State +35.5
-This is more of a gut play for me. I know little to nothing about Utah State but they showed me enough last week to bite on this getting more than 5 TD's. Oregon is a solid team, and could probably cover this if they wanted to, but I like Utah State to do just enough to come out on top.
West Virginia -7.5
-Logic seems to say take ECU but if you watched that game last week they were pretty lucky to get that win with the blocked punt against an overrated VT team. ECU is a solid team, don't get me wrong... I think they will have a good season when it's all said and done. In this spot however, I love the speed of White and Devine to cover this number easily. I am feeling a 20 point win here in a letdown spot for ECU, hopefully they do not disappoint.
Middle Tennessee State +13.5
-I listened to the game against Troy last week and almost turned it off because I had Troy and thought it was in the bag. MTSU did mount quite a comeback and I was impressed that they did not quit and made things interesting at the end of the game. Maryland on the other hand struggled with Deleware and only came away with a 7 point victory. I think MTSU is really psyched up to have such a big name program come into their house, and if they can keep the momentum from the home crowd I like them to stay in this ballgame.
-Texas Tech seems like an obvious pick. I was not impressed with their performance last week though. They gave up a good amount of points to a significantly weaker opponent. I like the pack in this spot catching 10 points as a home doggie.
Looking at possibly adding these:
Duke +6, hoping to get it at +7
Western Michigan -6
Like Duke to keep it close on a rainy day. was not impressed with NW for 75% of their game against the Orange.
WMU is a good team in my opinion and I think they will roll over NIU but I need more info on this game.
Washington looks like a good play to me but again I need more info.
Again if you have any comments please post them, I want to gather as much info about my plays as possible.
Had a good week last week, but it seems that when I post my plays I fall flat on my face. Hopefully I can reverse that trend and start posting some winners now and in the future.
Good luck on whatever you are playing tomorrow. I also want suggestions on additional games that people are playing and their logic behind them.
