Sports Plays Of The Day

SPORTS PLAYS OF THE DAY

After going 4-2 this past Sunday to raise my figure to minus 200 I am back with way too many College Football picks. I have 10 in all which is way too many but what can I say. After a hot weekend can I keep the momentum going? Here are my Sports Plays of the Day.

This will be a shoot out. Take the over. It’s high at 75 but both teams have high-powered. offenses.

Even though Navy is on the road here I still like this play. Navy has been a good team for many years now. Lay the 7 points.

Kansas is so bad right now but it would not surprise me in the world of college football to see an upset. But not here. Take Oklahoma State on the road laying the 23.

TCU is a tough team to figure out. Texas had a scare last week and probably should have lost. If Texas wants to be major players they need to make a statement at home today. But it does concern me a little bit that the Eyes Of Texas are focused on the Red River Rivalry game next week against Oklahoma. Lay the 10 with the Longhorns.

Texas Tech blew one last week. Both teams struggle to play defense. I like the over at 63.

LSU had a rough opening to its title defense last week. It’s safe to say that they are not repeating. With so many top players going on to the NFL and no Spring practice LSU found themselves playing a bad game to Mike Leach’s high-powered offense at Miss State. I was tempted to take LSU straight today but the over at 50.5 is low. I don’t expect much scoring from Vandy but if they give you two touchdowns this game goes over by the end of the third quarter. Take the over.

I hate Clemson and normally I want them to lose every game. But I hate Miami even more. With all of the talk that the U is back, I am sure Dabo is listening. Despite Clemson playing Miami next week, I expect a statement to be made today by the Tigers. This game is a rare double play as I  like Clemson -28.5 and the over at 55.

UCF is a team that I have always been hard on. They don’t play any of the big schools and that is partly their fault, But they might just be a good program. I would love to see UCF join the ACC conference because both parties need each other. UCF needs to get into a power conference and the ACC needs a new competitive team. It also works geographically. Lay the 21 with the Knights.

In my WTF game of the week take Eastern Kentucky laying 2.5 at home vs Houston Baptist

Sports Plays Of The Day

After an awful 1-6 day dropped me to plus 100 anchors I am back coming back strong with 11 plays today.  Which includes 5 road favorites

Let’s start with my weekly anti Rutgers pick.

Take Illinois -5 at Rutgers

I like OKlahoma State at home to win big today.  Lay the 9.5 on the Cowboys at home against Iowa State.

UMASS is terrible and this game won’t be competitive.  Even though South Florida is on the road lay the 15 at UMASS.

The Buffaloes have started hot this year.  Reverend Herm is still finding his way with his team.  Lay the 2.5 on Colorado at home against Arizona State.

I am going to take Georgia Southern at home laying the 12 against South Alabama

After a week off I am going to take Navy to rebound and beat fellow service academy rival Air Force.  Lay the 3 on the road on Navy.

Stanford was awful last week against Notre Dame and will rebound this week big time.  Lay the 3.5 on Stanford at home vs Utah.

The Bulls were embarrassed last week at home vs Army.  This is a good team that will rebound today at Central Michigan.  Lay the 7.5 on Buffalo on the road against the Chippewas.

All the signs point to a let down.  The Irish had a big home win last week against Stanford.  Playing on the road in Blacksburg for the first time.  Brian Kelly does not have a good history in big games and this is a chance for Tech to get a little redemption from the home loss to Old Dominion earlier in the year.  So I am laying the 6.5 on Notre Dame in the road at Virginia Tech

I picked the Indians to win the series so I have to come back with them today to even up the series.  Take the Indians on the road against the Astros

I like the over in the Yankees and Redsox game.  This will be a high scoring game.  David Price does not pitch well in the playoffs and even worse against the Yankees.  This game could be over by the 4th inning.  I am not sure who will win and I still like the Redsox for the series.  But at 9.  I like the over.

Sports Plays Of The Day

After last night’s win I am up 50 anchors.

I have 5 College plays today and will mix in a couple of MLB games too.  50 anchors on all.

NAVY

Navy is so difficult to play against because of their offense.  But Navy has been a good team for a long time now.  Lay the 6 on the road at SMU

wvu

People are high on the Mountaineers this year.  They have a big time offense.  They are a really good home team too.   Lay the 16.5 at home against Kansas State

oklahoma

I really don’t see any way Army keeps this game close.  Oklahoma has more talent with their backups.  This one gets ugly especially at Norman.  Lay the 31 against Army

charlotte

I like UNC today as a road under dog getting 7.5 at UMASS.  This is more of an anti UMASS pick than anything.  And that half point could be big in this bet.  Take UNC Charlotte and the 7.5 on the road.

6fzn6ljfgggzo8dmp09y

This pick is definitely an anti Rutgers pick.  But I do think Buffalo is a quality team.  They are a road favorite which scares me a bit but Rutgers has been terrible and may be inspired to play a team in a lesser conference.  Rutgers should be in this conference and not the Big Ten.  Lay the 6 on the road with Buffalo

For Baseball it’s hard to pick games where neither team has anything to play for.  So I am picking 3 games where teams have something to play for

Braves

Braves are looking to close out the division.  Phillies have crashed and burned big time.  I know Arrieta is a good pitcher but Folty has had a great season.  Take the Braves at home against the Phillies

A's

Talk about a team that has steamrolled lately.  A’s still are looking to get a home game in the wild card round and will push the Yankees right to the end.  Take the A’s at home over the Twins

Orioles

Admittedly this is an anti Yankee pick.  I know the Orioles are done and Showalter might be out at the end of the season.  I don’t like Yankee starter Lance Lynn.  The Yankees are not crisp right now.  Their bullpen is a mess too.  And the Orioles would love to win a game or two this weekend.  Take the Orioles to win in the bronx against the Yankees.
