college football week three

One unit (6-3)(+2.75)
Two unit (3-4)(-0.70)
Three unit (4-2)(+4.80)
OVERALL SEASON (13-9)(+6.85)

5-1 picking up 6.40 units in week two of college football. Very pleased with the results. Always feels great to start the season of well and get some confidence going.

Thursday night

Rutgers +7½ vs S Florida (one unit)………………not crazy about this one, but being off work with back problems and not allowed to do anything, I am betting on this game. I can see S Florida getting their offense in high gear and winning easy. I also can see Rutgers running the ball, controlling the clock and getting the cover. They also have a history of covering vs SFU. When in doubt……take the points.

Friday night
UNLV +8 vs Washington St (one unit)…………..Wish I would have grabbed this one when it was 11, but I really did not start looking at the games until yesterday. If I recall home dogs do pretty well on Friday nights. Wash St QB is listed as doubtful and I think UNLV can put some points on the board and with a break or two, win this game, so give me the points.

I will be back either late tonight or sometime Friday afternoon with all my plays for Saturday.

Good Luck Everybody!!

    Got one under my belt. What is scary is I like just about all dogs this week. Never a good sign.

Adding my Saturday plays.

Wake Forest +27½ vs Florida St (three units)……………..I am not sure if this would classify as a sucker bet or not. FSU does have a great team and it is not like WFU is a powerhouse. Much talk about revenge for last year’s Wake Forest win, but Wake always seems to play well and save their best efforts for this team. State has won easily against two nobodies, so this is their first real competition, while Wake came back and upset a decent N Carolina team. If I a wrong about this one, FSU will annihilate them. Hope I am not wrong.

Stanford +8½ vs USC (three units)……………..Much like the Wake Forest play, Stanford has a history of giving this team fits. I know all about USC’s QB, but I watched him last week and all he did was throw short screen passes. I was not impressed. If Cuse scored that many points on them last week, I would certainly hope that Stanford can do the same. Given the recent history of close games and Cardinal wins, I am not going to be afraid of going against the BIG NAME team and grab the home underdog plus more than a TD. There is also a reason USC dropped from number one in the rankings as well. It may show even more this week. Possible upset again.

E Carolina +7½ vs S Mississippi (two units)……………………I don’t always have many reasons for taking teams sometimes other gut feelings, and that is sort of the case here. I know over the years ECU has always been a solid dog and I just don’t see a big difference in talent between these two teams. Home field being the difference maker and I don’t see it being worth more than a touchdown. Again, I will grab the points.

Mississippi +10 vs Texas (two units)…………………I see alot of value in this one. Yes I am pretty sure Texas is the better team. No I am not so sure they are the better team at Ole Miss, and if they are it is not by double digits. Another strong home dog with a very good shot at an outright win. I am just starting to scare myself with all dogs so far this week. Be careful following my picks unless you like them as well.

La Monroe +16½ vs Auburn (two units)…………….I am not going to go into detail on this one. This is just about on everybody’s picks this week. How could you not? La Monroe with huge upset AT Arkansas and Auburn just looks like they have no offense at all. Of course it would not be a shock to see Auburn win something like 52-10, but I just cannot pass this one up. At least if I lose there will be plenty of people right along with me. I think Auburn will finally break through and score a decent amount of points this week, but they will give up a few as well and not get the cover. Let’s call it Auburn 35 La Monroe 24

The rest of these are (one unit) plays.............

Virginia Tech -10 vs Pitt High…………………Playing at home is only going to get Pitt booed out of their own stadium and will not help the cause as this one just gets ugly.

Tennessee -3 vs Florida…………….gut feeling. Tennessee due to beat these guys.

Navy +7 vs Penn State………….shocked this line went to seven. Unless Penn State’s defense plays incredible and they have looked good, they should not cover this spread.

There are others that have peaked my interest. Just confirmed I am having back surgery later this month and will likely not be returning to work until late October, so I am some extra time to kill and will more than likely bet extra games that I should not. Never said I was smart. May be back Saturday afternoon to add a couple of more.

Good Luck Everybody!!
