And hilarious.


Thank you for your input. I want to watch all of the good ones.

And if anyone wants to discuss what strategy, team(s) work for them. This is a forum, so please feel free to chime in what strategies have worked for you. Thanks!

well mikey what i like as far as a nat'l title game is LSU beating Oklahoma. I was high on UCF until they got their bowl ban. As far as strategies i just try to find games i like and bet them. I'm not really a strtegy guy. 1 thing though is last season mikey we had tuesday night college football with Toledo and western michigan and guys were bitching why do i bet these crap games. Here's advice for ya. If that Toledo-Western Michigan game was on saturday would you bet it?

another thing mikey in 2010 i was looking at the lines and saw kansas state was a 3 pt fave vs kansas. I couldn't believe it. I bet them big with the line and ML and won a ton. Since then i've won a ton of kansas state bets. On the contrary USC screws me all the time. 2nd piece of advice anytime i take a side in a usc game bet the other side. I'm not joking i've won1 usc bet in 3 years

basically mikey you can follow whoever you want but to me you can't blindly tail someone. Example lets say you like Navy week 1 and i say i like ND that doesn't mean you discount your opinion. Always go with your gut. Have fun ask questions win. welcome to covers. BTW usually on those crappy weekday games i was talking about we have in game threads. Join in my man. I've never had more fun than in those threads

That makes a lot of sense. It's hard not to bet teams like USC because they get so much coverage, so you get a false sense of security that you "know" the team. If that Toledo-Western Michigan game was on saturday would you bet it? 

Answer: probably not...again for me it's hard to bet a team that I haven't seen play.

I do normally play my gut, but getting opinions from others or reading how they think about a game can influence me. With college football especially, I played my gut feeling a lot, which is how I shot up to $5k.

NFL seems so easy to bet, but it screwed me over many times last season!!

I don't bet nfl myself. I just prefer on sundays to watch the games with my family

It will take 17.5 plus for me to consider a UM play here.....but I do like that arlington turf....hard and fast plays to Denard Robinson's strengths.

UM loses the DT Martin.....good DT's that clog up the middle are in such short supply, that is a big deal in this matchup.

Bama should run and control things...dominance on the ground are equal to td's in the redzone.

bigvern,

With the turf you could have a good point with DR, but Alabama just played their last game in the Superdome so they should be used to the turf, or atleast know what to expect...

Saban don't brag much, so there must be something special about this years team.

 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban says this Alabama team had probably the best results from the summer physical test of any group he's coached.
