ok gentlemen we are right around the corner. BOL to all of you. Thought I'd share my top picks for you. All insight and opinions on these games are welcome. I know its a garbage load of chalk but hey... I like what I like week 1 LOL. None locked in just yet. Will check line movements throughout the next 1.5 or so before I place my final bets. You never know when somebody will be caught with an assault rifle and get kicked off the team
Oklahoma vs Utep -31
Oregon vs Arky State over 65
Alabama -11.5 (my #1 play. I love Bama in this game and will take up to 13 or 14)
USC -39 (considering a first half play tho. USC can score very fast and I expect them to be up 28-7 by halftime) Offense is loaded but will their D allow a backdoor cover if they are up by 45??
Nebraska -17 vs so miss I hate T Martinez but I think the Huskers show up at home and win by more than 3 TDs
Georgia vs Buffalo -37
Clemson -3.5 vs auburn Sammy Watkins will be suspended right? I like CLemsons offense still and Taj Boyd will come to mke a statement. But damn I hope Sammy can play. 3.5 seems completely reasonable tho. I think Clemson is the more complete team. And they got the #1 recruit on defense.
Marshall +24 rival game. Even though WV probably would have covered a similar spread last year without the game being called off due to weather I think Marshall is an improved team this year and could stay within 23 24. If this goes up to 24.5 that could be NICE
Georgia Tech +7.5 even tho they burned me last year a couple times, their offense is a machine. They can run the ball and move the chains. CLock will tick. I think this is a 3-7 point win for either side.
Notre Dame -17 even tho their QB situation isnt looking too good right now.
Too much chalk for week one? Im feeling very confident in Oklahoma, Bama, and the Oregon over 65. Arky state should score 17-20 for sure and its looking like their cornerbacks are a little young. THey may score more than 20. Im thinking 55-21 tho.
lets get em this year boys!
