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 TOP TEN TEAMS

After the first month of the season, it is time for my top ten teams plus two bonus teams.

 

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide 5-0. The best team in the country

  1. Clemson Tigers 5-0. If Clemson loses a game this season they should not make the playoffs.

  1. Georgia Bulldogs 4-0. Should have lost to Notre Dame

  1. LSU Tigers 4-0. As always on a collision course with Alabama.

  1. Ohio State Buckeyes 5-0. Doing just fine post Urban Meyer

  1. Auburn Tigers 5-0. The forgotten team in the SEC WEST

  1. Oklahoma Sooners 4-0. Could they have the Heisman winner for the third straight season?

  1. Wisconsin Badgers 4-0. Can they get over the Ohio State hump this year?

  1. Florida Gators 5-0. The fun will end the next two weeks with games vs Auburn and Georgia.

  1. Notre Dame Fighting Irish 3-1. Should have beat Georgia. They can run the table and get back into the playoff talk.

BONUS TEAMS

These teams can’t make the playoffs but could be in the top 10 soon and play in a New Years Day Bowl Game.

Virginia Cavaliers 4-1. Weak remaining schedule in a weak ACC.

Central Florida Knights 4-1. Need to get into a power conference.

Sports Plays Of The Day 3-22 March Madness Edition

I went 0-2 on Wednesday night to lower my figure to plus 1650 mella khaleesi’s.  I was not able to put in my picks for yesterday so I am going to make up for it by picking every game today.  Yesterday Underdogs covered 10 out of 16 games.  So if you bet each game individually you made money.  In real terms if you didn’t use a bookie and went to a casino with a sports book the first 6 games on the board were all underdog wins.  Later at night the favorites went on a run.  As I was sitting with friends watching the games we all wondered why don’t we just bet every dog.  Keeping with that theme I am picking 9 dogs and 7 favorites.  But it did give me an idea for a post I will put up later.  So here are my 16 picks for today.  200 units each.

Take Cincinnatti -4.5 over Iowa.

Take Oklahoma plus 1 over Ole Miss

Take Texas Tech -12.5 over Northern Kentucky

Take UC Irvine plus 4 against Kansas State

Take Colgate plus 17.5 against Tennessee

Take Buffalo -5 against Arizona State

Take Wisconsin -2.5 over Oregon

Take Gardner Webb plus 22 against Virginia

Take Utah State -3.5 against Washington

Take Houston -12 against Georgia State

Take North Dakota State plus 26.5 against Duke

Take LIberty plus 6.5 against Mississippi State

Take Iona plus 22.5 against North Carolina

Take VCU plus 1 against UCF

Take Iowa State-5.5 over Ohio State

As much as this pains me cause I have Virginia Tech in a knockout pool with spreads I like Saint Louis plus 10.5 over Virginia Tech

Take the Islanders at home vs the Wild.

Also one extra play at 50 on the Rangers at home vs the Maple Leafs.  System Hockey.

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

Thanks to Buffalo I am on the plus side again at plus 50 pigskins.

I like Northern Illinois minus 6 at Akron

I like the Owls to at least cover the 10.5 in UCF against the winners of 20 in a row UCF

I like the Niners minus the 2.5 at home vs the Raiders

NCAA Rankings

Anther week goes by and there is some movement on the back end of the top 10.  But the top 4 remain the same.  This coming weekend has some huge matchups that will determine alot of what happens going further.

1.

Last week # 1.  Everyone is playing in their world.  They play LSU this week.  Bama running the table ensures only one team from the SEC makes the playoffs

2.

Last week #3.  I will bump Clemson up from 3 because of their dominance of a not vintage Florida State.  I will judge Clemson and ND by their victories of common opponents should both be undefeated by the end of the season.

3.

Last Week #2.  Hard to drop the Irish.  The score does not indicate how dominate ND was against Navy.  It was 27-0 at half and ND could have scored at will.  Let’s not embarrass a service academy.  But ND needs some convincing wins down the stretch.

4.

Last Week #4.  Keeping LSU at 4 for one more week despite not playing.  They play Alabama in Death Valley this coming week in for them an elimination game.

5.

Last Week #5.  Michigan stay at # 5 this week.  The Wolverines control their own destiny.  Don’t over look Penn State while waiting for the big game against OSU in November.

6.

Last Week #6.  Despite soundly beating a top ten team I am not moving up Georgia.  The Bulldogs also control their own destiny but have to beat upstart Kentucky in Lexington this week before dreaming of playing Alabama in the SEC championship.

7.

Last Week Un Ranked.  WIth Texas losing Oklahoma now is back in the playoff picture.  A one loss Oklahoma team as the Big 12 champion might not get in but they need to handle their own business before entering that discussion.

8.

Last Week #9.  I feel bad for UCF.  They still have no shot at the playoffs.  They need to get some power 5 teams on their schedule.  How Applachian State was ranked going into this week (will drop now that they lost)without a big win just a crushing loss to Penn State and no one else from the American Athletic Conference is ranked is a joke.

9.

Last Week #7.  I am dropping them because something seems off.  And Purdue just lost their 4 game this past week.

10.

Last Week Un Ranked.  Welcome to the top ten WIldcats.  Sorry but after Georgia beats you this coming week you will never be here again.
