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

NCAA Rankings

ANother week goes by and more teams drop and the playoff picture gets clearer.  We knew one top 4 team was going to lose this week.  Still more games to play.

#1

Alabama last week # 1.  Just aced their test at LSU by pitching a shutout.  No doubt the Crimson Tide is the best team in the country.

#2

Clemson last week #2.  Classless Dabo hangs 77 points on the board.  No style points will get you into the top spot.

#3

Notre Dame last week #3.  Brian Kelly needs to have a dominate performance from start to finish next week at home against FSU.

#4

Michigan last week #5.  Revenge tour continues and could also see a playoff date against ND.

#5

Georgia last week #6.  Will play Bama in the SEC title game.  Must run the table before the Bama game.

#6

Oklahoma last week #7.  Change defensive coordinators same weak defense.

#7

Central Florida last week #8.  Give them their due.  21 straight wins is not easy even against non power conference teams.

#8

Ohio State last week 9.  Not a great performance.  Still alive in the playoffs.

#9

Washington State last week un ranked.  Imagine the interviews we would have with Mike Leach during the playoffs.

#10

West Virginia last week un ranked.  Needs to win out and get help.

Notes.

We all expect Alabama to be in the playoffs no matter what right.  Even if they lose a game and still win the SEC championship game.  What if they go udefeated and lose the SEC championship game.  Would they still make it over these 4 teams if they run the table Notre Dame, Clemson, Michigan and Georgia the latter 3 all winning their conference championship games and obviously a Georgia team that just beat Alabama.  That to me is the biggest question I have right now.  Oklahoma should be in the top 6.  What happens if they run the table?  Do they get in no matter what happens to the top 4.  Probably not.  Oklahoma State can disrupt both Oklahoma and charging West Virginia.  I do expect each to lose another game this year.  UCF unfortunately has no shot at making the playoffs.  I will keep saying this until someone tells me it’s not possible.  Why can’t they get into the ACC?  I know there are already 14 teams in this conference.  Or better yet put them in the Big 12 which only has 10 teams.

 

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.
