Anyway, "gut" and instinct are about unconscious recognition of familiar scenarios.  My brain tells me to take A & M, but my gut tells me the smarter play is on Oklahoma.  Bob Stoops has a boatload of experience and I like that they are the dogs.  This is a "situational" play for me.  Oklahoma's losses this year were pretty damn close.  I'll even predict an upset.

Just giving some food for thought.  But generally, when the numbers heavily lean in favor of a team and the line doesn't reflect it, I always question the "give-me" play.

I'm putting a dime on Oklahoma and a nickel on the moneyline.  If I lose, I can live with it as I feel I made the smart play.  On the other hand, if Oklahoma loses, I hope they get blown out so I don't have to sweat it out with false hope.

But for all the experienced ones on this board, and there are tons, I think what I say rings true.  Whether it pans out or not, in the long run, I'm on the right side of 50-50 more times than not.  Hope this helps.  Ultimately, it can't just be about numbers or we'd all be millionaires.

   

Amen. 

Chess is one of the tools that has helped my capping.

I rarely post but your analysis was concise and touched my sense of intuition.

Macallan not sure if you know this or not but the cotton bowl is not a BCS game. Unless I missed the change?

Combato wrong again. Usually I bet on the team with most speed. (Speed kills) Both teams are fast and well coached, The reason I am taking A&M, the mobility of the QB. All the history of the meeting of the teams is no good. This is not the consevative  teams of Slocum with great defense but no offense. Small bet on Aggies. Gigem

Aggies went into 'Bama and beat them in their house. Anyone who follows college football knows what an accomplishment that was. Now Okie and their soft defense with their fancy pants, dandy QB is going to hang with Johnny Football and his troop of warriors. Good luck with that !!

Aggies - 3.5 for the large

Aggies ML -170 for the very,very large

  Combato, just have to ask where you got your info about any early money going on Okie. I watched it all over Vegas go from -3.5 to -5 or more on Dec 3rd when it opened. Just curious.

BOL to all !!

Sports Insights shows line moves from opener to close.  Mid week move started and moved line from TAMU -5 to TAMU -3.5.

As I said before Tough Guy, just post your picks so we can fade you.  Otherwise, you are just a troll and everyone here knows it.  So who do you like tough guy? Post 'em or Pose.

Right here - you guys don't seem to get that this a game of long term success. Anything can happen over a short period of time from winning 8 or losing 8 in a row.  The absurdity of calling someone out because they missed a game or two really shows a lack of understanding of how to play this game.  Short term results are meaningless.  If you wanna call me out, then let's make it over 50 games or so, not just short term fluctuations. I wonder how many of you here are really bettors or just guys that post your square opinions.  Even blind pigs find acorns at times ( that means even squares have winning streaks. They just have fewer of them than sharps)
