well this thread is for all the gamblers out there. I think it would be good to have a place where we can give our picks for the day and help each other out.

today i took a

$100 loss on seattle at -6.5
$100 win on eagles at -6
$100 win on cinci at +1

for the 4 oclocks,
i only have chicago at -3.5

anybody think indy at -3 is a good pick for the night game??

or oakland at -3 for mondays game?

if u have any good winners, share them here

Are there any sports gambling websites that I can bet on? I was thinking about doing a confidence pool. You know of any decent sites?

I use sportsinteraction and it's worked fine....... There are literally thousands of sports gambling sites, and some of them are considered very risky so be careful. But in terms of ratings, there are several sites that have recieved an A+ rating, including Bodog and Pinnacle. hope that helps

Thanks man...I will check out Bodog since I have seen them on tv advertising. I could have just googled it or something but while I was watching games earlier today I asked one of my roomates and he said he thought sports gambling online had been banned so I never checked.

i use bodog.com

and i bet on indy to beat ny

idk all the gambling lingo of over/unders but the point spread had indy 3 1/2 under

I only bet $5 but I won $5.50!

$10 is usually the max i bet



I also bet $5 on the blue jays beating the Angels, and I bet $5 on the angels beating the jays by 2 runs or more.......the only way i lost was if angels won by 1 and that's what happened :(

If the angels one by 2+ i would've won $9.25 and if the blue jays won I would've won $5.00

so of all the things that could've happened the one thing i didn't wanna happen did dammit

if you're going to bet that low I'd suggest doing parlays (combination bets).

thats where the big bucks are. last year i had 5 or 10 bucks down on a 7 team parlay and won $653.

basically u pick however many teams u want, and everysingle one has to win. then u win real big.

nice on the $653 parlay. I've been doing parlays these past two college football weekends and been hitting em' nicely.

college is a lot easier then nfl. almost everything covers. nfl on the other hand, only 3 of the favorited teams covered today.

by the way every week me and my buddies all throw up 1 dollar and do a 12 team parlay on all of the nfl games, the payout is in the 10ks. we have came very close. one day we will hit it.

it would probably be smarter to do it with college though

edit* night all, tommrow discuss monday night possibilities

why the hell did you neg me kid? I offered solid advice about paralys... next time you want to brag about how you're betting $5 so you can profit 50 cents to buy a snicker's, think otherwise.

Great thread!

I did not bet this weekend, but will for sure next sunday.

Week 2:

Buffalo at Miami 1:00 p.m.
Carolina at Minnesota 1:00 p.m.
Cleveland at Cincinnati 1:00 p.m.
Detroit at Chicago 1:00 p.m.
Houston at Indianapolis 1:00 p.m.
New Orleans at Green Bay 1:00 p.m.
N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia 1:00 p.m.
Oakland at Baltimore 1:00 p.m.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta 1:00 p.m.
Arizona at Seattle 4:05 p.m.
St. Louis at San Francisco 4:05 p.m.
Kansas City at Denver 4:15 p.m.
New England at N.Y. Jets 4:15 p.m.
Tennessee at San Diego 4:15 p.m.
Washington at Dallas

To start off with, I might put 50 dollars down on:
Chicago - probably 1.25 odds
Cincinnati - probably 1.25 odds
Colts - probably 1.10
Baltimore - probably 1.25-1.40 odds

Could be around a 57 dollar profit. After I earn some money, I'll bet more on longshots.

Last NFL season I did not bet at all, but the season before that, I won a little over 300, with 10 bucks to start out with. 2 dollars per ticket, 5 tickets a week. This time around I will bet at least 25 a week.

ok its sunday again.

today im putting 50 on indy at -13 against houston which should be a lock
50 more on baltimore at -13 against the worst seated raiders
50 more on cincinati at -13 against the browns

the 4 oclock games might be the rams and sd, money to be determined if 1 oclocks lose or win..

any feedback on these?

I would bet against the Raiders every week until Art Shell can prove he knows how to coach a football team. That was one of the worst hires ever. Personally I put $100 down on the following games:

Philly (-3) over Giants
Baltimore (-13) over Raiders
New Orleans (-2) over GB
Carolina (+1.5) over Minny

i really like the saints game too, that might be one of my picks as well. I am a HUGE eagles fan, but it is a divisional game, and with tiki/jacobs playing like they did, i wouldnt bet on that one.

and carolina over minny is ballsy

Games at Philly, and the Eagles are for real this year. They're healthy, they've improved their defense considerably. They should be a top 2-3 team in the NFC this year. I'm hoping last week's Panther game was a fluke. I'm not sold on Minny yet, but that is definitly my reach for this week. Lines were just too big on some of the other games I was considering, and I need to see more of St. Louis and their new coach before I put money down on them. I think they have a real good shot of covering against San Fran this week if they play at all like they did last week.

how confident are you with NO? i like it bc the spread is so low and gb is so bad

bush breeze mcallister horn. cmon vs farve???
seems like a lock?

Green Bay is horrible. Their secondary is d-1AA material, their offensive line sucks, they have no recievers except Driver who isn't even number one reciever material. I predict atleast two Favre gunslings picked off by NO.

Actually I think NO has an outside shot of making the playoffs. Their offense has a lot of weapons on it, and now that Brooks is gone they shouldn't make so many mistakes. Their defense is questionable, but GB's offense sucks. I'm pretty confident about that pick.

3 are money lines the chargers was a runline

i can make 4 times what i bet so its good enough for me, if the rams would just score...down 4 with about 10 minutes left...hopefuly the niners will fumble or smith will throw a pick

the jets look to be coming back on the pats....down 10 and recovered a fumble

I didn't do so well on saturday with college football, so I put a parlay on the nfl which I normally don't bet on.

Ny Giants (+3) over Philly

New Orleans (moneyline) over Green bay

Indy (-13.5) over Houston


$35 paid $209.... not bad since I wasn't even planning on betting today.


btw, that giants/eagles game was freakin nuts

MNF: I like pitt (-3) and the over (37) tonight

if they announce big ben as the starting qb, you gotta assume the spread with move to -4 or higher. Might be smart to get the bet in now (if you're for Pitt) before any fluctuations.

Hmmm odd I missed this thread.

Anyways, I got roughed up on ncaa week 2/nfl week 1 pretty bad and made up for it this past weekend going 7-1 ats on ncaa and 6-2 on nfl (13-3 ats weekend). I have Pitts -3 tonight as well.

Would be nice for us to pool information here each week to increase our odds. Check out my other thread too, if you're interested in a different kind of sports betting: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=902004

chicago (-3.5) over minnesota



I like these alot, and with Steve Smith healthy for this week Carolina should be alot more impressive.

You shoulda thrown the eagels in there, they are playing SF. i wish i could get early spreads but since i bet through a bookie i pretty much get game time spreads

I occasionally lay cash on NFL games.

If Washington is only -4, i'd go heavy on them. Houston hasn't played well at all and the skins are due with their talent level and Portis playing.

I also like Baltimore if that line tightens a little bit more. I am disappointed in the play of McNair thus far but the defense is looking really good again.

If the Atlanta/NO line widens in the Falcons favor, I would bet on the Saints. They are going to have a huge emotional lift Monday night @ the Superdome.

1-0 yesterday with GaTech and the under (push on the 17pt spread)

Saturday

* Nebraska
* UTEP
* Louisville

Light plays on Cuse, Florida, FSU under and WestVa


Sunday

* Det under
* Chi
* Cincy
* NYG
* Houston

Light plays on the Titans, Phily, Balti and Carolina

why light on balti, i think thats the game of the week? houston and nyg are a lot more risky then that...

Good luck. I was actually leaning towards UNC @ 17. I'm indifferent on UTenn as their offense is MUCH to be desired. VT and Texas *should* cover fine. OSU will be interesting. Far better team, but I expect JoPa's team to make it close for about the first 3 minutes :D

Cdem
09-25-2006, 04:33 PM
i'm thinking about putting some $$ on atl. i have them in a 7 point teaser, there my last win i need. So i have them at +4. the -4 line is pretty nice, IMO the falcons should win this game by a decent amount. NO is definitly the worst 2-0 team. The only thing making me second guess is the fact that NO is playing at home for the first time in ages.

If i were to bet on over under...which i don't, i'd prolly take the under. IMO the falcons have one of the best defenses in the NFL. and the only reason that the game would go to over, is cause the falcons scored so many points :-P

yeah the .5 buy is probably a safe play. I just feel that they are going to come out firing as usual and the saints wont be able to keep up the the mcnabb deep ball. eagles should be able to score at will. and even with stallworth out, hank baskett will be able to get open downfield for the big play

depends on how much the pay out is in the first place. But if i bet 80 on philly, i only win 63 at -3...if i buy .5 points, i could win 54.

it's different with every game..id say about half the games every week have an even pay out rate. on the flip side tho, if i bet 80 on NO with +3 i could win 90. I think places do that because maybe there not to happy with the vagas spread.

i bet with bookies and websites, pretty much everything. and it sounds like u r betting the spread but getting the money line. What site do u use and why? ive never seen something liek that before, thats a rip off.

if i wanted to take the game at the money line then there would be no spread? im confused?

if ur gettin screwed liek that, i would switch websites, or bookies whichever u use. a good one and common is bodog.com if u bet 100 u win 100 but if u lose u pay 10% juice which is standard

if i were to bet 80 on the money line, id only win 44...i use sportfanatik.com. i like it cause i play poker on it every once in awhile. and they give me 4 free 10 dollar bets a month. they pick the bet, but thats fun to win free money. i might switch to pinnaclesports.com cause my brother said it has great payout rates.

they don't do that payout with every game..only a few, and i beleive it depends on how people are betting on the game. with a -125 payout, i'm assuming a lot of sport fanatik members are taking the eagles at -3. And not many people are taking NO. so sportfanatik is adjusting the payout rate. it constantly changes depending on the betting population.


oh and i have a bogdog account..i actually have a bogdog calendar i won from a poker tourney and they sent me it..but i haven't gone on there website in awhile..i hate changing betting sites.

nice to see more action in this thread... I'm up about $450 since the start of nfl/ncaa football this season, mainly betting parlays. I also just started "buying points" off the spread. I switched from sportsinteraction to betcris.com for the "buy points" option mainly. Plus, betcris seems to offer bets on football really early in the week (sunday for college, monday for nfl), so I can try and lock in the spreads before they fluctuate from the public demand.

Bears over Cardinals --- by 8+
Broncos over Raiders --- by 8+
Seahawks over Rams --- by 4+
Chargers over 49'ers --- by 8+

odds are 4X overall. only one that looks iffy in my opinion is seattle, but i think that their bye week will help, and even though alexander isnt back, green bay proved that any average RB can run all over them.

I live in Ontario, and there are two systems, Pro-Line and Pointspread.

Pro-Line: You choose either team to win by 4+, or 8+ or to have the game within 3 points (tie). Depending on which team you pick and by how much you pick them to win, odds change. Ie- Denver over Oakland by 4+ points would be 1.15 odds, but Tampa over Cinci by 8+ would be 5.5 odds.

Pointspread: Simple, company provides given spreads. The spreads I have are bears (-12.5), seattle (-3.5), broncos (-16.5) and chargers (-10.5).

Now that I've cleared that up, anyone think my pics are any good?

third, my pics for sunday, im a little nervous as its about that time in the season where dominant teams prevail yet im unsure who the dominant teams are, noone really stands out like in previous years.

Indy @ Wash -9 - i know indy has struggled, and they have not covered spreads like they used to. but i feel that after a rest peyton and the gang will come out firing and post up points like crazy!

Philly@ TB -5 well the eagles are my team and i have faith that they will destroy TB even though tb has been playing well.

Arizona@ OAK -3 this is one of the only game analysts have said Oak has a chance at winning. yet cards played very well against chi except for the last 10 min. and i am convinced the new Lienart to Boldin connection will be great

other games to come tommrow. lets here some feedback

ok well i determined my picks for tommrow. normally i diversify heavily however i am gonna do soemthing different this week and only go with two teams. as i said i have the 400 to bet.

$200 on Philly -3 @ NO
$200 on Cinci -5@ TB

now it is time to pray

and hypothetically if i win both, i will put the full 400 on the bears monday night


You didnt pray hard enough! Poor bastard. Robbed with the Cinci bet. I feel for ya.

I am taking the Panthers @ $2.50
Chargers -5.5 $1.85
Eagles $1.38
Patriots $1.38

$100 @ 8.81

I will be praying

good to get some new faces in here. im confused what are ur bets exaclty. is that $185 and 138 or what? and also whats 100 @8.8 mean. sorry for my ignorance

Betting is a little different in Australia for NFL

At the handicap of minus 5.5 points it will pay $1.85. So for example, if i put $100 on the Chargers and they win by more than 6 points i win $185 (profit of $85)

Eagles and Pats both paying $1.38 to win.
Panthers $2.50 to win

Therefore with my all up bet (called a multi bet in Australia)

1.38 x 1.38 x 1.85 x 2.50 = $8.81

Put 100 on that and IF it wins i get back $881

how does this ticket look to you guys?

Bears over Cardinals --- by 8+
Broncos over Raiders --- by 8+
Seahawks over Rams --- by 4+
Chargers over 49'ers --- by 8+

odds are 4X overall. only one that looks iffy in my opinion is seattle, but i think that their bye week will help, and even though alexander isnt back, green bay proved that any average RB can run all over them.

ouch this is why i dont bet ever...hope u didnt make those bets bro!

ok well its almost sunday again, my fav day. first id like to say CDEM im pissed u didnt tell me about ur predictions contest earlier, i love that sh*t.
second lets get u guys pickin games again, is anyone still betting? (kyle, saw, cdem, where u guys been)

third, my pics for sunday, im a little nervous as its about that time in the season where dominant teams prevail yet im unsure who the dominant teams are, noone really stands out like in previous years.

Indy @ Wash -9 - i know indy has struggled, and they have not covered spreads like they used to. but i feel that after a rest peyton and the gang will come out firing and post up points like crazy!

Philly@ TB -5 well the eagles are my team and i have faith that they will destroy TB even though tb has been playing well.

the game is in my profile lol..you can always start now, at the end i'm going to do a winner for most games won and winning % winner. plus imma do somthing special for playoff games, haven't figured out what yet.

G-Men moneyline (+150)

throwing away the 3 points for money line huh? i like the giants too...but i'm having a debate right now with my brother on who will win..hes hooked on the cowboys, because its there last home game until they go on the road for 3 weeks. owens is 5-0 against the giants, home teams have covered every monday night football game since wk 1.

i on the other hand..hate bledsoe. i think if the giants defense can pressure bledsoe, giants will win. i'm definitly gonna take the under, still on the fence about the winner.

nice about the fantasy. I have Plaxico and my opponent has Shockey and we're tied!

the more I look at the game the more I think the boyz might take it. I can't pass up the giants at +150 though. When bledsoe is good, he's great. But when he struggles, he's horrid! I'll hope for the latter.

correct about the jets losing by 10, you'll still cover your +10.5. I think you got confused about Saints at +4, they are the underdog so they can still lose by 3 and you'll win, or lose by 4 and you'll push.

I came across Dr. Bobs picks. google his name if you don't know who he is. I'm just gonna stick to betting on NFL and maybe bet some of his picks every week. He had Rutgers on thursday and Utep yesterday. I can hook you guys up with these every week if you find them usefull. Oh and by the way, when this guy releases his picks on thursday at 1, some of the lines in his games that he picks will actually move a couple points. i've seen it happen and it's crazy.

Rotation #306 Rutgers (+6 1/2) 3-Stars at +5 or more, 2-Stars from +3 1/2 to +4 1/2, 4-Stars at +7 or more.
Rotation #311 UTEP (+2) 2-Stars at pick or better.
Rotation #326 Boston College (-28) 2-Stars at -28 or less.
Rotation #352 SMU (+5) 3-Stars at +4 or more, 2-Stars at +3 or +3 1/2.
Rotation #372 New Mexico (+8) 4-Stars at +7 or more, 3-Stars from +4 to +6 1/2, 2- Stars at +3 or +3 1/2.
Rotation #376 San Jose State (+14 1/2) 4-Stars at +14 or more, 3-Stars from +12 to +13 1/2, 2-Stars from +10 to +11 1/2.
Rotation #387 Central Florida (+1) 2-Stars at -1 or better, 3-Stars at +2 or more.
Rotation #390 Kansas State (+17) 3-Stars at +16 or more, 2-Stars from +14 to +15 1/2.
Rotation #392 San Diego State (-7 1/2) 2-Stars at -9 or less, 3-Stars at -7 or less.
Rotation #383 Pittsburgh 2-Stars at -7 or less.
PItt did go to -7 and has stayed there at most places, so it will count as a 2-Star officially. 4 Star Selection

TCU (-8.0) 24 NEW MEXICO 20
02:30 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
New Mexico has always started slowly and improved as the season progresses under coach Rocky Long and this season is no different. The Lobos started the season with a home loss to Division 1AA Portland State and were 2-4 straight up and 2-3 ATS in their first 6 games before running off 3 straight wins and spread wins with talented freshman Donovan Porterie at quarterback. New Mexico is 19-27 straight up and 15-25-1 ATS in the first 6 games of the season under Long since 1999 and the Lobos are now 29-13 straight up and 32-10 ATS in from game 7 on (regular season), including an incredible 24-1 ATS in their last 25 late season games when not favored by 3 points or more (as favorite of less than 3 or dog). The Lobos’ offense has improved in those 3 games with Porterie at quarterback, averaging 5.5 yards per play against teams that would combine to allow 5.4 yppl to an average attack. That is much better than the -0.9 yppl rating that they had in their first 6 games with two other starting quarterbacks. New Mexico has a solid defense that has allowed 5.0 yppl to teams that would average 5.0 yppl against an average stop unit, so they are about average overall from the line of scrimmage and better than average in special teams. TCU is a good team, rating at 0.1 yppl better than average on offense and 0.8 yppl better than average on defense, but the Horned Frogs are certainly not good enough to be favored by as many points as they are against the improved Lobos. In fact, my math model favors TCU by just 1 ½ points in this game and New Mexico has had an extra week to prepare, which is very advantageous late in the season. The Lobos actually apply to a 40-10-1 ATS late season team off a bye angle and TCU is not that great on the road, going just 7-14 ATS in conference road games under coach Patterson and 2-9 ATS as a road favorite of more than 7 points (0-5 ATS in conference). This one looks good every way you look at it, as we have a strong general situation, supporting team trends and good line value. I’ll take New Mexico in a 4- Star Best Bet at +7 points or more, for 3-Stars from +6 ½ to +4 points and for 2-Stars at +3 ½ or +3 points.



4 Star Selection
****SAN JOSE ST. 24 Boise St. (-14.5) 27
03:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
There is a lot of pressure on unbeaten teams late in the season and usually those teams tend to play not to lose rather than playing to win big. In fact, unbeaten road teams that are 7-0 or better, are just 93-132-4 ATS since 1980 and Boise State actually applies to a very negative 10-48-2 ATS subset of that situation that is 0-17 ATS since 2000. The Broncos applied to that same subset in their lackluster 42-26 win as a 21 point road favorite at Idaho a few weeks ago. San Jose State, meanwhile, applies to a 55- 19-2 ATS late season home underdog momentum situation and the record is a perfect 11-0 ATS if both angles apply to the same game. There are a few other situations favoring San Jose State as well and the Spartans are a pretty decent team. San Jose State has a great running back in Yonus Davis, who has 861 yards at 7.4 ypr this season, and a better than average veteran quarterback in Adam Tafralis (7.1 yards per pass play against teams that would allow 6.8 yppp to an average quarterback). Overall the Spartans are 0.4 yards per play better than average offensively and they are average defensively, allowing 5.1 yppl to teams that would combine to average 5.1 yppl against an average defense. Boise State is obviously better on both sides of the ball, rating at 0.8 yppl better than average offensively (with QB Zabransky in the game) and 0.3 yppl better than average defensively. You may notice that San Jose State has a slight advantage on offense over Boise State’s defense, which is important when backing a big home underdog. Overall, my math model favors Boise State by just 10 points in this game and the Spartans lost by just 5 points at Washington earlier this season (when the Huskies had their starting quarterback and were playing well), so they have proven that they can compete with better teams. The Spartans have a very profitable 65% chance of covering at +14 points and I’ll take San Jose State in a 4-Star Best Bet at +14 points or more, for 3-Stars from +12 to +13 ½, and for 2-Stars from +10 to +11 ½ points.




3 Star Selection
***RUTGERS 25 Louisville (-6.5) 21
04:30 PM Pacific, 09-Nov-06
Another battle of unbeaten teams in the Big East and the home team should come out on top again after Louisville beat West Virginia at home last Thursday. Unlike last week, when neither team could stop the other from scoring, Rutgers has a defense that can slow down the Cardinals. The Scarlet Knights have allowed just 4.1 yards per play this season to teams that would combine to average 5.1 yppl against an average team. Louisville has averaged 7.5 yppl (against teams that would allow 5.5 yppl to an average attack) and the Cardinals are obviously the best offensive team that Rutgers has faced this season. However, the Knights did limit a potent Pitt attack to just 10 points on 236 total yards and 4.5 yppl in Pittsburgh, so they are certainly capable of slowing down Louisville today at home. Rutgers isn’t much offensively, averaging just 5.3 yppl (against teams that would allow 5.5 yppl to an average team), but Louisville is just 0.2 yppl better than average defensively (5.0 yppl allowed to teams that would average 5.2 yppl), so Rutgers should do a decent job of moving the ball. Where Rutgers has a real advantage is in special teams, which should give them good field position in this game. Overall, my math model favors Louisville by just 2 ½ points in this game and another mathematical tool favors the Cardinals by 4 points. What makes Rutgers a play is not the marginal line value, but rather the situation. Louisville applies to the same negative 9-41-2 ATS unbeaten road team situation that West Virginia applied to last week in their loss at Louisville. Rutgers, meanwhile, applies to a very strong 48-13-1 ATS home underdog momentum situation at +5 or more and a 40-12-1 ATS home dog momentum situation. Also, unbeaten home underdogs (5-0 teams or better) are 24-12-1 ATS since 1980, including 12-5 ATS against an unbeaten visitor, and Rutgers will be playing with a lot of confidence in this game. Louisville hasn’t played nearly as good away from home under coach Bobby Petrino (11-12-1 ATS) as they have at Papa John’s Stadium (15-6 ATS) and the Cardinals are just 2-6 ATS as a favorite away from home against a team with a winning record. Rutgers, meanwhile, is 18-7-1 ATS as an underdog the last 4 years, including 3-0 ATS this season. I’ll take Rutgers in a 3-Star Best Bets at +5 points or more (4-Stars at +7 or more) and for 2-Stars from +3 ½ to +4 ½ points (strong opinion at +3).




3 Star Selection
***SMU 28 Houston (-5.0) 24
12:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
Houston’s big win last week over Tulsa was certainly impressive, but the Cougars were in a very high percentage situation. This week the Cougars are not in a good situation going on the road as a favorite after their upset win over the Hurricanes last week. Houston applies to a negative 95-186-7 ATS road letdown situation while SMU applies to a solid 84-46 ATS situation that plays on dogs coming off a win and a bye week. SMU has had two weeks to prepare for this game and their confidence is no doubt running high given their recent success at home and 5-2 record in their last 7 games overall. The Mustangs have won 6 consecutive home games in which the defense has allowed an average of just 11.2 points and SMU is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 lined games as the host. Not only is SMU in a good situation, but they are also undervalued due to their recent history of bad play. Those days are gone. The Mustangs have an efficient freshman quarterback in Justin Willis, who has completed 71% of this passes with 20 going for touchdowns against just 4 interceptions. Willis doesn’t throw the ball downfield very often and he actually rates as below average on a yards per pass play scale, but the Mustangs’ attack is only 0.3 yards per play worse than average. That unit should perform well against a Houston defense that has been 0.9 yppl worse than average (5.9 yppl allowed to teams that would average just 5.0 yppl against an average team) in 7 games since the Cougars lost their best defensive player, SS Schwartz, in their second game. Houston’s offense makes up for their poor defense by averaging 6.9 yppl (against teams that would allow 6.0 yppl) and senior quarterback Kevin Kolb has thrown just 3 picks in 317 passes this season. The Cougars actually rate even higher on offense now that they’ve converted shifty receiver Anthony Alridge to running back. Alridge has averaged an incredible 11.2 ypr on 51 carries this season and the Houston offense currently rates at 1.2 yppl better than average. SMU is among the best in the nation at defending the run and they’re decent against the pass and the Mustangs rate at 0.3 yppl better than average defensively. SMU has a 2.8 points edge in special teams and my math model favors the Mustangs by ½ a point in this game. The situation favoring SMU only applies for underdogs of 3 points or more, so I’ll take SMU in a 2-Star Best Bet at +3 points or more and for 3-Stars at +4 points or more.

***KANSAS ST. 21 Texas (-17.0) 29
05:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
Texas has only played two true road games all season long and they barely won both of those games (by 2 points at Nebraska and by 4 points at Texas Tech). Texas has been inconsistent with their effort on the defensive side of the ball and this is a game in which I expect the Longhorns to letdown. Texas applies to a negative 17-57-3 ATS road letdown situation while Kansas State has played well in consecutive victories and they qualify in a very good 48-13-1 ATS momentum home underdog situation. There is also a more general 186-95-7 ATS home momentum situation that favors the Wildcats, who are now 69-31 ATS at home since 1990 (4-2 ATS this season). Kansas State has been hit with costly injuries to their secondary, losing top CB Baldwin in game 4 and then S Watts a couple of weeks ago, so the Wildcats have gone from a very good defensive team early this season to a slightly worse than average defense currently. However, Kansas State’s offense has improved in their last 5 games with Josh Freeman at quarterback and Leon Patton as the main running back (413 yards at 6.1 ypr in 5 games as the main back). In those 5 games the Wildcats have averaged 5.8 yppl against teams that would allow 5.3 yppl to an average team. Kansas State has been without their top receiver, Jermaine Moreira the past 2 ½ games, but the pass attack has actually posted better numbers during that span so I felt no need to make an adjustment for that. Texas has only been 0.4 yppl better than average defensively this season, allowing 5.1 yppl to teams that would combine to average 5.5 yppl against an average defensive team, and the Longhorns have allowed an average of 429 yards at 6.7 yppl in their two games as the visitor (against Nebraska and Texas Tech offensive units that would combine to average 6.6 yppl at home against an average team). My math model favors Texas by 14 ½ points and the Longhorns are due for a letdown. I’ll take Kansas State in a 3-Star Best Bet at +16 points or more and for 2-Stars from +15 ½ to +14 points.




2 Star Selection
**Texas El Paso 27 UAB (-2.0) 21
05:00 PM Pacific, 10-Nov-06
The Miners have now lost 3 straight games, the last of which was an upset home loss as an 8 ½ point favorite against Rice last week. That loss should result in a turnaround this week as UTEP applies to a very strong 57-10 ATS road bounce-back situation - as long as they are pick or an underdog. It helps that UTEP is the better team in this game, as the Miners rate considerably higher on both sides of the ball. El Paso is 0.2 yards per play better than average on offense (5.9 yppl against teams that would allow 5.7 yppl to an average team) and 0.2 yppl worse than average on defense (5.6 yppl allowed to teams that would average 5.4 yppl against an average defense). UAB, meanwhile, is 0.7 yppl worse than average with quarterback Chris Williams in the game and the Blazers are 0.6 yppl worse than average defensively (5.7 yppl allowed to teams that would average 5.1 yppl against an average team). My math model favors UTEP by 5 points in this game and the situation favoring the Miners applies at pick or dog, so I’ll take Texas El Paso in a 2-Star Best Bet at pick or as an underdog (3-Stars at +3 or more).




2 Star Selection
**BOSTON COLLEGE (-28.0) 42 Duke 6
04:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
Boston College is coming off a loss at Wake Forest and the Eagles will be looking to take out their frustrations on the lowly Blue Devils today. Boston College is 21-9 ATS after a conference loss in 10 years under coach Tom O’Brien (19-5 ATS last 24) and O’Brien rarely shows mercy at home against out-manned conference foes, going 10-1 ATS hosting conference opponents with losing records during his tenure. Boston College also applies to a 60-23 ATS big home favorite bounce-back situation as long as they are favored by 28 points or less and my math model favors the Eagles by 36 ½ points. The Eagles are 9-3-1 ATS as a favorite of 20 points or more, so they usually get the money as a big favorite, but I’ll only play BC as a Best Bet if the 60-23 ATS situation applies. I’ll take Boston College in a 2-Star Best Bet at -28 points or less and I’ll consider the Eagles a Strong Opinion at -31 or less.




2 Star Selection
**Central Florida 34 MEMPHIS (-1.0) 26
05:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
I’ve been going against both of these teams this season but Central Florida is improving while Memphis is getting worse. UCF coach George O’Leary has started Kyle Israel at quarterback the last 3 games and the offense has responded by averaging 5.9 yards per play in those games (against teams that would allow 5.9 yppl to an average team). An average attack is an improvement for the Golden Knights and Israel should have a huge day attacking a Memphis secondary that has allowed 8.0 yards per pass play this season (to teams that would combine to average 5.4 yppp against an average defense). The Tigers were without 3 time All-Conference S Wesley Smith for 2 of those games, including last week, but Smith is expected to play this week and Memphis is a bit better when he’s been in (but still 2.4 yppp worse than average). Overall the Tigers are 1.2 yppl worse than average defensively, so Central Florida should move the ball very well. The Memphis offense is only 0.4 yppl worse than average and they have an advantage over a Central Florida defense that is 0.8 yppl worse than average (6.4 yppl allowed to teams that would average 5.6 yppl against an average team). However, that 0.4 yppl advantage by the Memphis offense is far less than the 1.2 yppl advantage that the Knights have over the Tigers’ defense. Central Florida also has better special teams and my math model favors the Knights by 7 points in this game. UCF would also apply to a solid 51-26-2 ATS bounce- back situation if they are an underdog or pick and I’ll take Central Florida in a 2- Star Best Bet at -1 or better and for 3-Stars at +2 or more.



2 Star Selection
**SAN DIEGO ST. (-7.5) 32 UNLV 16
06:00 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
San Diego State was horrible early in the season under new coach Chuck Long, but the Aztecs are showing signs of life on both sides of the ball lately. The offense has averaged only 4.8 yards per play this season (against teams that would allow 5.2 yppl to an average team), but the Aztecs rate at 0.4 yppl better than average with their current offensive lineup. The difference is having Atiyyah Henderson at tailback since their 3rd game (601 yards at 5.1 ypr in 6 games as the main back) and having redshirt freshman Kevin Craft at quarterback the last 4 games, in which he’s averaged 6.1 yards per pass play against teams that would combine to allow just 5.6 yppp to an average quarterback. Craft replaced the ineffective Darren Mougey, who took over in game 2 after veteran starter Kevin O’Connell was injured in the opener. O’Connell returned last week and threw 6 passes for 94 yards and has completed 16 of his 20 passes this season. O’Connell and Craft will both play and I expect both to have success against a porous UNLV secondary that has allowed 7.8 yppp this season to teams that would average 6.5 yppp against an average team. UNLV is 0.6 yppl worse than average overall defensively, and my math model forecasts 414 yards at 6.6 yppl for the Aztecs in this game. UNLV will have a tough time keeping up with an attack that rates at 1.0 yppl worse than average with Rocky Hinds behind center (the much more effective Shane Steichen was hurt a few weeks ago and is out for the season). San Diego State’s defense has allowed only 4.5 yppl in their last 3 games and they are now just 0.2 yppl worse than average for the season on defense, so the Aztecs have a huge edge when UNLV has the ball too. The Rebels do have a 1.5 points edge in special teams but the math favors San Diego State by 16 ½ points. I’ll take San Diego State in a 2-Star Best Bet at -9 points or less and for 3-Stars at -7 or less (strong opinion at -9 ½ or -10).

2-Star Best Bet
**Pittsburgh (-7) 28 CONNECTICUT 14
12:30 PM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
Pittsburgh has lost two consecutive games to good defensive teams Rutgers and South Florida, and those losses have led to some line value on their side entering this game. The Panthers are still a very good team that has averaged 6.5 yards per play on offense (against teams that would allow 5.6 yppl to an average team) while allowing just 4.6 yppl (to teams that would combine to average 5.0 yppl against an average defense). Connecticut, meanwhile, is 0.6 yppl worse than average on offense and 0.1 yppl worse than average on defense and the Panthers have beaten mediocre teams pretty easily this season. My math model favors Pitt by 16 points in this game but conference road favorites of more than 7 points that are coming off back-to-back losses are not good bets historically against a team with the revenge motive (45-76-2 ATS), so I will insist on only making Pitt a 2-Star Best Bet at -7 points or less. The situation against Pittsburgh is not strong enough to keep me from favoring the Panthers to cover in this game. Strong Opinion
Navy (-14.0) 32 Eastern Mich 14 (at Detroit)
10:00 AM Pacific, 11-Nov-06
Navy has always been a good bet away from home and the Midshipmen are now 35-8-1 ATS in regular season road or neutral games against teams with losing records after whipping Duke last Saturday. Navy can’t throw the ball at all out of their option without injured starter Brian Hampton, but the Middies should have no trouble running their option attack against an Eastern Michigan defense that is decent defending the pass (which means very little in this game), but are horrible against the run (5.4 yards per rushing play allowed to teams that would combine to average 4.6 yprp against an average defensive team). My math model favors Navy by 14 points, so there really isn’t much line value, but I’ll consider Navy a Strong Opinion at -14 points or less based on their very profitable history in this role

IMO i dont think i beleive they move that much. there are plenty of big name pickers out there. they prob just move because he picks games lots of pple like which drives spreads up.

I follow brandon langs picks a lot, his are pretty good soemtimes

a spread moving 3 points in general is a lot, now a spread moving by 3 points bc of one person seems unlikely. all my opinion of course
