After another hiatus I am back but my figure is minus 500 zips. I clearly have work to do. So as you know each game is 50 zips and I am introducing my Best Bet picks which are worth 100 zips. It’s a pretty light week in college football but I found some games I like.
At 3-3 I like the Zips at home to cover the spread against Central Michigan. The Chippewas are 0-3 on the road with all losses by over 10 points. Lay the 5 on Akron.
The Golden Knights have been good this year. At 5-2 with losses at Duke and to OKlahoma in overtime I like them to win out right on the road against a good Eastern Michigan team. And they are getting a point too. Take the point on Army on the road at Eastern Michigan.
The Tar Heels have been very bad this year. The Cavs are undefeated at home. Lay the 9 on Virginia at home to beat North Carolina.
The Cougars offense sparked when they inserted a true freshman QB against Hawaii 2 weeks ago. After a bye week he should be even better. Although Northern Illinois is a pretty good team I am laying the 6.5 on BYU at home.
The Monarchs have been riding that major upset of Virginia Tech for weeks now losing 3 straight games until the beat Western Kentucky last week. The Blue Raiders are a better team. Even though they are on the road Middle Tennessee will win laying the 4.5 at Old Dominion.
The Hilltopers have been bad this year at 1-6. Despite being 0 and 3 at home all 3 losses were by 3 points. They have been in most of their games this season but I just like the Panthers to keep rolling.
BEST BET PICK FIU -3.5 on the road against Western Kentucky
While UCF gets the headlines that allows the Bulls to fly under the radar. They also are undefeated at 7-0. The Cougars at 6-1 have better wins on their resume with a loss at Texas Tech sprinkled in. I just think this game will be closer than the oddsmakers think.
BEST BET PICK UCF getting 9 at Houston
Last week the Bearcats absolutely gifted a win to Temple with a slew of mistakes. Thus ruining their undefeated season. I expect them to come out big today against the Mustangs.
BEST BET PICK Cincinnatti laying 9 on the road at SMU.
On the ICE
Take the Leafs at home against the Jets
Take the Coyotes at home against the Lightning
On the DIAMOND
Not sure who wins this game but I like the Over at 8 runs.
After a 2 day break I am back with 13 picks plus two bonus picks. My figure stands at plus 150 pigskins. As you know it’s 50 pigskins on each pick. So here we go
Let’s start with Maryland. You can bet against Rutgers every week for the rest of the year and make money. They are just that bad. Lay the 25 on the Terps at home against the Scarlet Knights
I have rode Buffalo alot this year and they have covered all but one game. So lay the 11 on Buffalo at home vs the Akron Zips
In a obscure pick I like Troy who is not a bad team to win big over Liberty. Lay the 10 on Troy at Liberty.
Old Dominion had it’s moment. While they may play good every week they are still 1 and 5. The Thundering Herd will win this one comfortably. Lay the 3.5 on Marshall at ODU
I like FIU to win at home against a pretty good Middle Tennessee State team. Lay the 2.5 on FIU at home
I like the Chanticleers today. Who? That’s right. I like coastal Carolina to beat down UL Monroe at home. Lay the 7.
The next 3 picks are all overs.
The over is 54. Duke can score and also can’t play defense.
This could be very high scoring. I like the over of 59 to be made comfortably.
Although I like the over in this game alot and at 46.5 it’s not that high. I do like the Cavs to cover the spread. They played Miami tough last year in Miami and should have won the game.
In bonus pick # 1 take the Cavs plus 7 at home to win outright.
In my second bonus pick:
This is a dangerous pick cause they are due to lose. Central Florida is the self proclaimed defending champions and are overdue for a loss. I don’t see it happening today. The Knights know how good Memphis is. So while I think Memphis could win today and it would not surprise me if they did I am still laying the 5.5 on the road on UCF.
In Game one of this series I like the Astros to win in Boston and I also like the under of 7.5. Both Verlander and Sale will dominate this game until the bull pens get involved.
Take the Stros and the under of 7.5
I like the Brewers to win this series and even though they have won 12 in a row I am looking for lucky # 13 the bakers dozen tonight. I also like alot of runs to be scored too.
