coming off another week of better than average predictions against the spread it’s that time again kids. college football hits the tv with a vengeance this week. last week i went 6 for 10. nothing stellar but i’ll take it. thus making my overall for the season, 50 for 90. having taken week 6 off. 5 games over .500. semi sorta iffy but much better than .500 or worse.
once again, remember this is for fun only and taking what i dish out here to make yourself a nice bankroll for christmas would be stupid at best. leave your wallet alone and you’ll be fine. also, i go by the odds i have here. they are what they are. a compilation of several places.
pop a cold one. light up the barbie. sit back and enjoy what’s left of the greatest sport, college football. enjoy the games.
rock ‘n’ roll.
11/14 boston college at virginia. boston college favored by 4 points. almost a toss up and just might be a good game. i’m looking for boston college to win this one and cover the points. take them.
11/14 iowa at ohio st. ohio st favored by 16 points. iowa coming off a dumb loss and ohio st coming off a big win. the point being can iowa recover? and does ohio st have a let down? we’ll both find that out come saturday. in lieu of knowing for sure, take iowa to cover the points and maybe win.
11/14 florida st at wake forest. wake forest favored by 6 points. wake forest is playing some ball. take them to win and cover. on a side note, has anyone else noticed that bobby bowden looks more and more like a food network’s star, paula deen?
11/14 notre dame at pittsburg. pittsburg favored by 7. he of the 5 super bowl rings fights for his job, as well he should, with this game. golden domer faithful aren’t happy. then they rarely are. the man who replaced ty willingham is going down the same road to the unemployment office next week. let’s see, i predicted the irish would lose this game back in january or february of this year. nothing has changed. take pittsburg to win and cover.
11/14 stanford at usc. usc favored by 11 points. it’s november. it’s a home game for the trojans. they don’t lose at home or in november for that matter. the trouble being it hasn’t been a good year for coach pete. it has been a semi good year for coach mike. once again, stanford has a good team and riley can coach. stanford doesn’t have a defense. if the trojan defense shows up and the offense does as well the trojans should cover the spread. a damn good game here folks. take the trojans to cover and win. those who live by the sword die by the sword. FIGHT ON!!!!
11/14 arizona at california. the game is a toss up. sadly i haven’t seen arizona play this year. probably due to the lame tv schedule the pac 10 has with the networks. be that as it may, i have seen cal play just about every week. they didn’t do well against the beavers last week but nobody else in the pac 10 is either. the game is in berserkeley. take cal to win.
11/14 arizona st at oregon. oregon favored by 16.5 points. a bunch of points. however, the game is in duckland, home of the true 12th man. insanity reigns. probably rain as well. cold weather too. take the ducks to win and cover. QUACK QUACK!!!!
11/14 washington at oregon st. oregon st favored by 11. the sleeper game of the week. this one will be a good one folks. if you can watch this one don’t miss it. the brothers rodgers(i spelled it right this time) are amazing at best. oregon st is proof that the pac 10 is THE CONFERENCE THIS YEAR. count on it. take oregon st to more than likely win and cover the spread. though i don’t think that’s an option in places like nevada. oregon st wins and covers.
11/14 alabama at mississippi st. bama favored by 13. tell you what, i don’t think they can score 13 points in 4 quarters two weeks in a row. the question being, can they hold the lads of state to no points or say, 3? i love bama but i ain’t feeling them here. take mississippi st to cover the spread.
11/14 texas tech at oklahoma st. oklahoma st favored by 3.5 points. my semi alma mater wins or covers the spread. take texas tech and be sure to visit: the vietnam center and archive at http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/ happy veterans day!!
there you go, kids another week of picks coming to you on a wing and a prayer. leave your money where it belongs, in your wife’s purse. and nobody gets hurt. enjoy the games.
