Well well well college football is just around the corner. Seems like the longest summer every waiting for football to start since seeing the Kings raise the Stanley Cup. I know some of you guys have been betting baseball to hold you over this summer. For me I'm strictly hockey and football so damn it feels good that we are this close to the season starting.
First off I will post every week. I know I will get some guys saying "you bet way too many favorites" but I don't care. I don't bet all favorites I just bet the favorites that I think stand out the most. Week 1 will be no different as I have noticed in the past big favorites seems to cover a lot. After looking at some games this is what I got so far.
Also I look forward to chatting with everyone this season and hearing everyone's opinions and trying to make the most out of this season. As always BOL to everyone and if you have thoughts or comments let me know.
MICH ST -7
Boise St just lost way too many people. I know they have done great lately playing the elite teams and I have definitely backed them in the past but this year I just don't see it. Kellen Moore is gone and that will be hard to replace
OHIO ST -22.5
Urban Meyer puts on a show for his first game in Columbus. This team is way too talented and they have a very good defense. If OSU could win the Big Ten championship I think they would actually have a chance. Anyways the Bucks roll here.
Tigers look to bounce back after being spanked by WV last year. This team returns way too much talent. Great QB, great RB and two of the best WRs in the country. With or without Sammy Watkins Clemson should win easily.
FLORIDA - 29
Again this team has way too much talent for Bowling Green. BG might be lucky to score 10 points if that. Plus Muschamp will have these guys ready for their first game of the season. Gators roll
I'm a big fan of Oregon. Chip Kelly is a genius and I think these guys end up winning the PAC 12 conference. As I stated in my futures bets post, I think Thomas leaving the Ducks was a blessing. They have two new QBs that are very good, the Black Mamba is out of this word and Barner is still a stud in the backfield. Look for the Ducks to score early and often. Chip Kelly will continue to reload year after year.
UTEP?!?! Enough said. Think Sooners will beat up on some teams this year but like always I'm not convinced they will win the Big 12.
Wow what a game to start off the season. This game kind of reminds me of LSU vs Oregon last year. Speed vs Defense. Well we all know who won that game last year. Bama might struggle a little bit at first but I don't see Denard and the boys standing a chance the full 4 quarters. Might be close in the beginning but Bama will eventually pull away and win by 2 or 3 TD's
WEST VIRGINIA -24
SOUTH CAROLINA -7
Will probably end up playing more games and as I lock them in I will post. Comments or thoughts welcome
