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.
What do the 1972 Miami Dolphins do? You know how Nick Buoniconti pops the champagne when the last undefeated team in the NFL loses. He and his teammates actually root for it. This will never happen but if the Dolphins are 8-0 will they root against their own franchise team?
Jimmy G what the hell are you doing? Just go out of bounds. Didn’t you learn anything from playing behind Tom Brady all these years?
Speaking of the 49ers what is the NFL thinking about now having the Niners in so many prime time games with Bobby Beathard’s grandson quarterbacking that team. Can they flex those games out?
My god can it get any lower for Rutgers? They were home dogs against Buffalo from the MAAC conference, a conference they really should be in and not where they do not belong in the Big Ten. But Buffalo blew them off the field by halftime.
Did Notre Dame find a QB or is this fools gold again? One can hope they won’t go undefeated only to get blown off the field in a playoff game.
Tiger Woods is back? Tiger won his first tournament in a very long time. So is he back? Some will argue that until he wins a major he won’t be officially back. But man that crowd was drawn to Tiger like no other golfer in the modern era.
Only the Mets can make this nice gesture for David Wright into something that draws attention to him. Not only did Wright have to beg the Mets to get his day do the Mets really have to say he won’t play in a game that means something to other teams. Way to get the attention off Wright.
I don’t know about you but the Rams offense looks scary good. And their defense has yet to start playing
Typical Miami Hurricanes. Blowing out the lowly North Carolina Tar Heels and strutting about with the turnover chain. Despite getting embarrassed by LSU in a stand alone game Sunday night during Labor Day Weekend.
After Monday night’s win I am up 200 rams going into tonight where I have 3 plays all at 50 units each
Normally after a horrible game for a good team I would jump on them the next week. But for the Vikings the week is short and they are playing against the undefeated Rams in LA. I look for another bad game for Cousins and co. Take the Rams minus the 7 at home vs the Vikings
This isn’t basketball it’s football. And while I think Miami is over rated and a bully team they should be able to blast North Carolina at home. Lay the 18 on the U at home vs the Tar Heels
Rockies need to keep winning period. The Phillies look done and have not cared now for a couple of weeks. Take the Rockies at home against the Phillis
After a split on Thursday I have 3 picks for today.
I am not a Miami fan. I think they are overrated. They are a bully team. But with that this is a game where Miami should run the score up against an inferior team. Even though this is a road game against Toledo. I think the spread is too low.
50 units on Miami -12
Georgia has tons of speed and talent. Much more than Middle Tennessee State. Especially between the hedges. The spread is high. You always get concerned about the back door cover. Georgia wins this one by more than 40 points
50 units on Georgia -33.5
There wasn’t much that I liked from today but I am going to take a surprise game here. FIU at home will beat UMASS comfortably I feel. I do think they have more talent and I have no confidence in UMASS winning on the road.
