We’ve all been waiting for the NFL and the full college football weekend to unfold. Now it’s here! And you know what that means:
Glaze picks some games you may want to bet a couple bucks on.
Remember, the best place to do this is in Las Vegas or at betting parlors where gambling on sports is legal. Off shore online is popular but kind of a grey area of betting. Or you can always join a pick em league.
The game everyone is talking about around Kansas City is the Chiefs / Atlanta.
Tony G back in town. Three weeks ago the Chiefs were favored by 3, today they are a 3 point dog. Big swing. Why? Even though both teams had poor preseasons, the 1-3 Chiefs are badly injured on defense and showed no passing offense at all.
Atlanta’s Matt Ryan is a couple big games off becoming a top level quarterback, whereas Matt THE FRANCHISE Cassel is one of the leagues five worst. No argument. Unfortunately it’s a passing league.
The Chiefs may have one of the NFL’s best running games and if, and only if, it’s at an A level, can the Chiefs win this game. Otherwise they will need turnovers and some luck. The Falcons should win by 10, but let’s just look at the 3 for now.
I like Atlanta in this game.
The other big game is Missouri vs. Georgia in college ball. Tough call. MU looked great against a nobody last week and Georgia looked average with its nobody. So? The highly touted Georgia team comes to MU for Game One of the Tigers SEC history.
I would not bet this game, so I’ll hope for an MU win. Toss up.
If I had to bet though I’d take Georgia.
Again, they have a better history for the big game than our Tigers. For me its a no bet.
NOW THE PICKS: A TEASE means you must pick two teams…both their scores or spreads can be moved up or down 6 points and you have to win both games to win. It pays even usually or a tad higher, depending on spreads of each game.
OKLAHOMA STATE -5 OVER ARIZONA (tease with)
ALABAMA -32.5 OVER WESTERN KENTUCKY (tease with above game)
ATLANTA -3 OVER KC. To be safe take the money line here and get Atlanta even over KC, no points. You must bet $150 to win $100, but its a safer way to go.
NEW ENGLAND even OVER TENNESSEE (TEASE WITH)
HOUSTON -7 OVER MIAMI
