A veritable value smorgasbord of value.    Looks like 11-1.    Sorry about Cal, in advance.

Take Ohio State. Cal has USC on deck in their first pac 12 game. Ohio St has UAB. Meyer have his team go all out to where Cal will be peeking ahead to USC and the health of their players.  Not to mention, kickoff is at 12.  9am westcoast time. With that and the fact Cal doesn't play well at all away, I see a blowout looming ahead.

What the Arkansas angle? I really dont think they get more than 13 points, if that.

Don't like USF pick.  Rutgers has 8 starters back on defense and were ranked 9th in the nation in pass def. last year

Arkansas is one of the 10 most talented teams in the country. Not even JL Smith can prevent this group from giving Alabama a serious run for their money. A 3 TD spread is just ludicrous. Unbelievable, actually. But there will be those who will bet the Tide. Yes there will.

Thanks guys....

Arkansas play is a huge overreaction in the line to week 1.  I cant avoid it - I bet a game like this 100 out of 100 times.

If the line before last week would have been in the single digits - probably even closer to a PK - and Im going to get 21 because Arky laid an egg in their opener?  Please.  Could you have a bigger media focus on these teams last week because there were no real big games, Ark was the biggest upset - and bama is bama - every average joe out there thinks "arkansas sucks because they lost at home to LaMon".

Sometimes its about X's and O's and indepth reasons - but this time - its a team getting WAY too many points.  Could Arkansas be as inneffective as they looked last week and come out and get smoked?  Of course.  But I bet this game over and over and over....

If Arky gets smoked their season is done.  But I dont believe that they believe their season is done yet.  One bad loss in your first game means nothing - they will go back to preseason thoughts of running the SEC table and going to the N Champ game (which BTW, is reality - if they run it they will be in the N Champ game).

Definite food for thought.  Have they made a decision on Wilson yet, or will it be a gametime decision?

There is no way Wilson is going to play, he was still a little woozy yesterday. This isn't his first concussion. Even if he does play he won't make it til halftime. Bama cruises in this one

..... so .. you would lose ur money 100 out of 100 times ..arky seaso was done before it started the moment they cut petrino..as much of an behind he was, he had this team running like a clock...under smith they look lost, and in disarray clueless, saban and bama can smell the blood in the water ...  if wilson is a no go arky wont score once if he goes,if he plays arky may score 7-10 pts but mostly he will be running for his life and likely quit at the first nice hard hit he gets from bama head hunters ...not to mention the array nof injuries arkansas have

Wilson is the key.  If he doesn't play Alabama covers the 3 TDs.

Regardless of whether Wilson plays or not, the game will stay under the total.
