week 5 turned out to be my best week of the season so far with a sweet 7 for 10. something i’m happy to take into week 6. my over all now stands at 22 for 50. a borderline respectable record. last week’s results just go to show that picking winners against the spread is no easy feat. something i’ve said over and over again. i’m also quite certain that had i gone my usual route i wouldn’t have done as well considering just how close a number of the games were.
i’m just picking winners again this week. no point spreads. i don’t have the time once again. while in las vegas last week we learned a piece of property, more like an albatross around my neck, and party house i own had finally sold after far too long on the market. in the end, a very good thing but it sold for no where near what it was worth in the old days. i digress. the sale is a cash deal and escrow will close this week. i’ve got way too much to do in the next few days clearing the joint out in the 100 degree plus heat of an early socal fall. hence, just winners again with no spread involved this week. maybe things will settle down for me by week 7.
now that we’re into week 6 the fighting road kill tech schools are back to playing amongst themselves for the most part. although picking the 10 games was still not easy as there are a number of good games coming down the pike this weekend. with any luck at all things will have cooled off for me and i’ll be able to enjoy a day on the couch watching them this saturday as i hardly saw any of the games last weekend.
this mess is for entertainment purposes only. taking anything seen here to any sort of betting establishment legal or otherwise and using it to place a bet would be incredibly asinine. leave your money in your wallet where it belongs and no one gets hurt. taking care of yourself and your family is more important.
rock ‘n’ roll.
10/4 usc @ utah. usc is playing well again after their loss to the trees. utah is only playing so so. the men of troy should have no problem taking out the utes. if they don’t i’m certain matt barkely will be very sorry he came back this year. take the trojans. FIGHT ON!!!
10/6 boise st @ southern mississippi. team smurf turf travels to the deep south saturday where the golden eagles aren’t playing very well at all this year. boise may run into a bit of trouble though. new mexico played them very tough last week and boise came no where near covering the spread. no spreads again this week so take boise st to win.
10/6 lsu @ florida. i’m not impressed by lsu so far this year and their early season schedule. however, florida’s isn’t much better. take florida to win.
10/6 iowa st @ tcu. probably one of the more interesting games this week. if it were being played in iowa the cyclones might have a shot. it isn’t. take tcu to win.
10/6 oklahoma @ texas tech. possibly another good game. the sooners will probably be favored. take the red raiders to win in an upset. on another note, if you have the time and interest please visit: http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu if you noodle around you can find some of my donated stuff there.
10/6 washington st @ oregon st. the beaves in some pretty heady territory. good for them and coach riley. the magic continues. take oregon st to win.
10/6 georgia @ s. carolina. another solid game here, kids. i’m taking the old ball coach and the home team here. you should too.
10/6 w. virginia @ texas. in reality neither school is that impressive so far this year. take texas to win.
10/6 nebraska @ ohio st. another of those reality bites deals here. i’m taking the cornhuskers to win.
10/6 washington @ oregon. the huskies beat the trees last weekend. are they that good or was it just a case of the trees counting on an upset headline getting them thru the rest of the season? maybe or maybe not. the thing is they have no shot this week. my beloved ducks may not cover whatever spread there is but they will win. count on it. take oregon to win. QUACK QUACK!!!
there you go. enjoy your week and the up coming games. i’ll will be especially with that escrow check in hand. as always, seared red meat and red wine pair well with college football. be safe. be semi sane.
