Last week was a good week. I’ll be lucky if I go through the entire football season and go 7-3 and net $300. I’m going to bank that money this week and play with the original $1000. Let’s get to the games.
Arizona +14 @ #9 Oklahoma State – Unlike last week we have a decent match-up for Thursday night college football. You know OSU will score some points, but will they stop the Wildcats. I think they will enough to win, but not to cover. Arizona & the points. $100
#21 Missouri +7 @ Arizona State – The Big 12 exchanging home games with the state of Arizona before Saturday. I’m surprised MU is the underdog here. The Tigers may not win, but I think they cover. Tigers with the points. $100
#12 South Carolina –3 @ #19 Georgia – The opening SEC game. Georgia got throttled by Boise St last week. I think South Carolina wins and covers. $100
Brigham Young +6.5 @ Texas – Uhh Texas wins, but doesn’t cover. Which is the same as BYU with the points. $100
#16 Notre Dame –4.5 @ Michigan – Notre Dame played better than their score indicated. They might be pretty motivated. Notre Dame to cover. $100
On to the NFL:
New Orleans +4 @ Green Bay – It’s the NFL. This is hard when it’s straight up. Green Bay to cover. $100
Buffalo +4.5 @ Kansas City – Chiefs won this game last year on a FG in OT. Bills take the points. $100
Dallas +4 @ NY Jets – For some reason I like the Cowboys to at least cover, if not win outright. Cowboys with the points. $100
Monday Night Football
New England –7 @ Miami – No freaking way Miami stays within 7 of New England. But these Vegas guys are pretty smart. New England to cover. $100
Oakland +3 @ Denver – This is another one of those lines that almost too easy. But there is a reason casinos are large and plush, and we live where we live. I’m still taking Denver to cover. $100
And there you have it. If you would like to play along make your picks for these ten games and how much you’re betting in the comments section. (Don’t be a wise guy and pick after the games are complete.) If you beat me you’ll win a sportsdrenched.com t-shirt….or not. But you’ll get mad props next week when we review what happened.
If you like sports. Get drenched, sportsdrenched!
