A full dance card is on the docket today with a ton of day games, as usual. The betting board has some blanks on it with some pitching changes and things of that sort. We also have a lot of heavy favorites today.
Once again, we’ve enlisted the help of BangTheBook writer Admir Aljic to put together his thoughts on the respective teams, the offseason player movement, and picks on each and every season win total line.
Host Adam Burke was joined by Ken Barkley, aka Locky Lockerson, to talk Heisman dark horse candidates and the Pac-12 and by professional handicapper Tony George to look at the NFL Preseason and some college football futures.
We’ve got 18 new offensive coordinators around the NFL, some quarterback competitions, a slew of rookie quarterbacks looking to make a name for themselves, and some teams that fall into none of those categories.
The majority of the segment focused on looking for futures value in the College Football Playoff, as there are some long shots that could make some noise and we have seen a long shots make appearances in recent years.
