  1. Hey, hey, hey - I resemble that remark RD!

    I've been bad at gambling for fun ($5 bets with friends) because I analyze TOO much and try to pick the emotional angle.

    Example 1A why I'm bad was my Miami 2006 preseason prediction. How wrong I was....

  3. Went 2-3 in college, if the Buckeyes would have them score 1TD I'd have come out on top $50. Oh well, none of this will matter because my big money is on the Patriots on monday night. They should beat them by at least 3 points

    Good call size, do you tend to put most of your $$$ on one pick like me ?

    Varies but I tend to be consistent unless something really stands out.


    Tonite,
    UAB @ SMU- In my opinion, this game should go over the mark at 48. Over the past few weeks, each offense is scoring and each defense is letting the opposition score. This indicates a mark of over the total 48

    I hope you guys did not play this one. It has sucked. I am checking it online and I am totally surprised, 13 points total into the 4th quarter. Only hope is overtime, but these teams are so bad. Obviously my capping on this one was terrible as well

    georgia -7 over kentucky

    Indiana @ Minnesota, not Michigan St., I think that is a good play to look at as I think Indiana may win w/o points.
    Ark. -2 seems like a gift. My thoughts point to Ark, but not a play for me.

    I think Ball State +35.5 @ Michigan is a good play. I imagine Michigan pulling players so no one gets hurt. Also, Michigan has only gone over 35 points twice this year, both were early games in the season.
    Another game I am looking at is Kent State -14 @ Buffalo.

    good point about michigan. i actually got burned last week betting on the over of the michigan/northwestern game over 42. NU usually allows many points to teams with lesser offenses so im not sure what happened although it was windy weather. besides that, almost all my other plays won.

    thanks for your input. any advice on virginia tech cause i think that looks really good. im starting to second guess myself on the georgia pick since the team always plays at their opponets level. kentucky is terrible though so its undecided as of now.

    I do not trust VTech or Miami so to me it is a no play. UGA would seem to be the smarter play in that game; as I feel they are better on both sides than UK is. Not a play for me though.

    Another game I am really looking at is Hawaii -27. Hawaii is a complete team this year with a great offense and an acceptable defense. Hawaii will score at least 50. This is a weather pending play.

  10. RD - When will Mr. Church Hill, TN (see - I got ya on that one...) start getting Mario some more playing time to get the rust off before OSU*?

    Hulk - I'm with Size on the VT/Miami game. I'm pretty sure our players have flat out quit. But, our D last year just beat the living hell outta Marcus Vick - and I don't think Sean Glennon is any better of a QB. If our O can get some points early - that could give the D enough confidence for them not to quit.

    That being said - we are still coached by one Larry Coker, so it's a Chinese fire-drill as to what plays we'll run or what players will played.
    I'm half expecting to see the punter substituted in at QB because Coker has his typical brain fart.

  11. First of all, thank you Patriots for funding my supplement habits for the next 3 months

    My picks this week include
    My lock is the OVER (49 points) in the Arizona St. & Oregon St. game. PAC-10 defenses are horrible this year, money in the bank !

    other picks I like are
    New England - 3 OVER Indianapolis
    Denver + 2.5 OVER Pittsburgh
    Atlanta -5 OVER Detroit
    West Virginia +1 OVER Louisville
    Nebraska -6 OVER Missouri
    Arkansas -2.5 OVER South Carolina
    The over in the USC & Stanford game (46.5)
    The over in Minnesota & San Francisco (42) - The Vikings alone should put up 31

    P.S. I'd kill a Stanford alum to play pro if I could get away with it LOL

    looks good IW! my only disagreement is louisville over west virginia. im thinking louiville will win this. WV only has a run game and the cardinals have one of the best rush defenses in the nation. their pass defense struggles but WV isnt a threat with the pass. louisville will put up many points with brohm back and i doubt WV will be able to hang. ive watched WV games and havent been impressed. plus home field advantage for louisville = big win. im just thinking out loud here but i feel strongly about this.

    p.s. - the over with OSU/ASU looks really solid. excellant choice! will definitely happen IF there arent any weather issues.

  15. WVU @ Louisville - One thing that is worth thinking about is the WVU pass defense. ECU threw for about 250 yards and would have had over 300 if it were not for many dropepd passes. ECU is really the only passing team WVU has faced. So the question I have is how will they handle Brohm?

  16. Brohm hasn't looked so hot since rushing back from that thumb injury. He's got just 1Td and 2 INTs in 2 games and it wasn't like either game was a blowout and they didnt need points. I usually love Louisville at home and I keep reading about UL's rush defense but I also remember Cincy rushing for over 200 yds against them and almost beating them at Papa John's a few weeks ago. Cincy's QB and RB are ok but they're no Slaton and White and Cincy is definitely no WVU. Brohm wasn't even supposed to be back for a few more weeks, definitely isn't 100% and the weather is supposed to be cold and very windy tonight. As much as UL at home has been money in the bank for me the past few years, I like WVU tonite.

  17. looks like i stand alone on this one. GO LOUISVILLE!!!

  18. As I expected, WVU pass defense got exposed. WVU had no answer for Brohm.

    Also, Kent St. -14 is a solid play.

    kent state -14? i see it at -16. i put them in the following parlay (i bought at least 1/2 point if not more on every game but i think its solid):

    kent state -13.5
    indiana +7.5
    maryland +21.5
    georgia -6.5

    my other plays this week are indiana again on a straight wager with arkansas and BC. im thinking i might change my money bet from v tech to BC. havent gambled on v tech yet cause betting against miami makes me feel uncomfortable. they can be a threat to any team (also, any team can be a threat to them). both miami and georgia have a problem playing at their opponets level. im starting to like BC over wake more and mare. i caught this at -2.5!!!

    Yes, sorry, I had it earlier as now the line has moved. Still looks solid to me. Buffalo is very bad.

    I rarely bet unless I have a bit of extra money going around, so take this with a grain of salt...but I would be careful with the ACC in conference matchups, they have been unpredictable this year. VT and miami will be a great game though, miami has been playing to the level of their opponents this year, and you never know if the VT of last week will be there, or the VT from the boston college game. I think that miami D might be able to give Ore a tough time, and if Glennon has to go to the air its bad news. I was at the VT-Miami game last year and it was a HUGE game for miami, starting qb and rb went down and they still won by a couple TDs, in Blacksburg no less, definitely a tough environment. I am babbling, gonna stop now, I would say just listen to size.

  22. Nope Warn - our starting QB was Kyle Wright and he played in last year's drubbing of VT (I made a thread on here that night). The starting RB at the beginning of the year was Tyrone Moss - he was out. Charlie Jones came in and had the game of his life. He's not played anywhere near that good IMO since that game.

    Bottome line - we beat the living sh*t outta VT partly because Marcus Vick was just so bad.
    Glennon seems to have the potential to pull a Vick - so I agree with you on this matchup - too tough to call.

    I'm still predicting for Miami to lose. They havent' shown me that they can be disciplined enough win (and they still have Larry Coker as the head coach).

    But - man, was that 27-7 win fun last year.

    Damn you're right Hulk, stupid turn overs and un-special teams killed them. I expected WV to be more explosive and that was the reason I went with them because they had been lights out on a weekly basis. I simply overrated them.

    P.S. the lock is money my friend, if not I go double or nothing next week and get it back, and some

    DAMNIT!!! i transferred my funds from one sports gambling website to another one. my new gambling sportspage only lists over/under bets on select games and ASU/OSU is off so i cannot bet on it. my old sportsbook lists the over/under for that game at 47. im really missing out on this but if i transfer back now, the money wont be in my acct in time

    i have a lot invested in indiana and BC this week. i also put together what i thought was a worthless parlay but im 3 for 3 right now with air force, louisville, and the over in louisville's game. all i need now is georgia, arkansas and v tech to cover. if this happens, ill be a rich man!!!

  25. Well thank you Oregon State & Arizona State, the bank account swelled up a little more this week. I've hit my lock so my side work is done

    I've gotta say I'm pretty pissed about the rich kids (Stanford) not being able to score one freaking TD ! Dammit they would have bought me a bottle of Powerfull LOL. USC 42-0 over Stanford & I just needed 5 more points.
