Well football fans, I’ve had a nice three week run..
Lets see if I can hold it together. My numbers have been so good, I’ll have trouble keeping them this high, but stick with me, maybe we’ll get lucky.
First let’s see how my season-long picks are going.
My number one pick for the season was Kansas City under 7 1/2 games and the Chiefs are 0-3, so that looks like a lock. Next I picked Detroit at over 7 games and that looks very good – they’re 3-0. Last I have Dallas at 9 with the under and they’re 2-1. That one’s still up in the air, but I still like the under. They seem to have issues, but they’re in a weak division, and the Eagles look to be in trouble as I predicted with Mr Vick. He will likely be out for the season soon.
In College Football the mighty are just that – way better than the rest.
My top teams are 1. Alabama 2. LSU 3. Wisconsin 4.Stanford 5. Oklahoma
Now on to this weekend…
College First: You’ve learned that sometimes teasing (adding or subtracting 6 points to at least two games) can be a good thing. Remember you have to win them both.
***** So lets take Wisconsin over Nebraska 10 and lets take Stanford -21 1/2 over UCLA. Teasing it makes it this way: Wisconsin -4 over Nebraska and Stanford -15 1/2 over UCLA.
***** Texas Tech -6 over Kansas
***** Alabama -4 over Florida
***** Bonus Bet: Tease LSU -30 1/2 over Kentucky and tease down Stanford -21 1/2 over UCLA. So now you have LSU at 24 1/2 over Kentucky and Stanford – 15 1/2 over UCLA.
Now Pro Football:
The pros are always tougher than it looks. Why is that? Last week was the third closest finish for the board of all time. Games decided by 3 or less. That’s tough. Also the score doesn’t matter much in pro ball. In college good teams want to cover so they can get their rankings up.
For example Oklahoma best MU but only by 10 so in many polls they fell from No. 1 to No. 2.
In the NFL it’s just, win baby. A "W "is a "W." So the score is not as important, though good teams want to prove they are good by beating you badly. There’s also not as big a difference in the NFL from top teams to some of the lower teams, but in college its huge. Like LSU and say Colorado, huge difference.
***** Vikings -2 1/2 over Chiefs
***** Detroit 2 over Dallas
***** Buffalo -3 over Bengals
***** Two team tease: New England -4 over Oakland and Green Bay -12 over Denver. Which makes it
New England 2 over Oakland and Green Bay -6 over Denver.
***** Bonus bet: Saints – 7 over Jags, Let’s tease again with Green Bay and make it Saints -1 over Jags and Packers – 6 over Denver….
There you have it – it’s never easy – so wish me luck!
