Nobody on Iowa -6 over Minny, eh?

Iowa has owned Minnesota at the Gopher Dome. Shonne Greene should run wild vs. that Minny defense. I'm talking 200+ yards. On the flip side, Iowa has an extremely tough defense. Minny's stock is going down and Iowa's is going up, despite just sneaking by Purdue last week. But I think that was more of a let down from the PSU win. Iowa should ROLL Minnesota tomorrow.

why is everyone so sure that OU will cover when their only lost came at home to Texas, and I believe TT O and D is a bit better than Texas.  OU might win, but TT has the O to at least keep pace don't you think. Think TT had their scare with Texas and learned from that. OU will be on their heels all game long.  TT will cover.

This is a revenge game for OU and Stoops. I'm not betting either side unless I'm up a few bucks at game time and get a better read on this. But generally TTech has played down a few notches when on the road. They are just too unproven. OU has played in many big games, and even though Stoops has become a choke artists over the last few years, he can still get it done. This game is basically a playoff game to see which team gets to play in the National Championship.....the f'ed up polls / BCS works out the way it normally does, meaning Tech  controls their destiny and OU will probably jump Texas if they win this game, despite losing to Texas. (See FSU jumping Miami in 1999 despite Miami defeating FSU, and FSU getting the nod for the NC game) -- This is home field for OU, I think their defense is more stout than Texas' pass defense and will hold TTech to less than 37 points. OU is on a tear lately.

That's just my take on it. I'm almost wanting to take the Under 76 in this game! I think I may have lost my mind.

WTF BG 
 
all - GL 
 
train - agree total does seem low, if I didn't already have Rutgers might have looked at Rutgers team total over 31
 
BP - actually was leaning same way on Iowa, agree containing Greene will be the key and Minn defense allowing 230+ rushing against Mich and Wisc recent games
 
adding
 
Kan St -3/Tenn +9.5 (teaser)
SD St under 24.5 (team total)
 
note teasers and team totals are 1/2 unit plays as with most weeks - believe poor Kan St team wins one for Prince and Iowa St no prize on road or turf, SD St scoring over 24 points only twice this year (not including Cal Poly) and one was Idaho
 
week 13 ticket
 
Va Tech -17 (2 units)
Oklahoma -6 (2 units)
Rutgers -16.5
Boise St -6
Illinois -2.5
Middle Tenn -19.5
Bowling Gr -3 L
Tenn/Vandy under 37.5
Syracuse/ND under 49
MiaFL +10/under 46.5 L
Kan St -3/Tenn +9.5
SD St under 24.5
 
that should do enough damage this week, time to get some coffee and check out next week and CBB today - BOL all

happykane - shaky is right, BG would have helped start the week better
 
DY - what's up buddy, good to see you around. I figured you might have a couple plays just as I would in similar spot. Nothing too big for me today, just trying to grind out a couple extra units before bowl season. BOL younger

NOS . I had a great day and folloed these picks with IOWA as a 50 unit pick. I didn't post because I couldn't get to a computer. I also put 30 units on old miss. I LOVE next week card and will be unloading early.  Next Week teams I like (don't think the line will matter)  Miss0(LARGE), Boise (LARGE), Cincy (Large), USC (Large), Arky St. (LARGE) and HAWAII (VERY LARGE 10K). I think you can play all these and not worry about loser, I will buy a BENZ after unloading next week.

da punisher - was leaning Iowa and didn't pull the trigger, good to hear you cashed
 
should have had OU and Rutgers on top instead of OU and VT, although defense dominated Duke, offense looked worse than usual and turned it over 5 times
 
7-5 for the week (7-3 Sat) and made a couple units
 
time to check out next weeks matchups

Nos congrats on the OU huge win against TT.  You were hot last week so I laid off the bet on TT nervously .  I didn't bet OU but you still saved me some coin on that game. Your analysis was dead on about OU running game being the difference.  Thanks.
