First of all, I NEVER create my own threads.  I follow alot of great cappers on this site and certainly don't pretend to be one myself.  I played college ball as a kicker and have a decent knack for pulling more than 50% winners on my own. 

Someone!  Please tell me that I'm NOT an idiot for laying 90% of my bankroll on USC - 3 at UCLA!  All comments welcome, good or bad!  GL this weekend everyone!

That's a lot BUT I love USC here.  They will throw all over UCLA who completely deflated after get a big lead last week at WSU.  USC did not want to be playing spoiler at this point of the season but I think it will drive them to roll these next two weeks and get themselves another shot at Oregon.

They can't win the BCS, but they can keep UCLA from getting a shot at the Rose Bowl and keep ND from their undefeated season.

I started another thread on this game, I like ucla. These teams are actually pretty even statistically, I think mora gets the job done.

Yeah...."alot" to me at this point is $320 of a $400 bankroll.  Thanks for your input bro!  Much appreciated.  GL this weekend and tonight if you wagered.

Only an idiot would put 90% of bank roll on one game because the wrong side loses sometimes.  That's just how the ball bounces, double your wager if you think it is a solid pick.  I for one think it's the right side. gl

Being a UCLA fan i would never bet ucla in this game, unless I was 100% confident, but i follow both teams pretty closely... My guess is the safest bet is the over... Both defenses are not that good and most likely the team that has it last wins...

I think USC could win out. Beat UCLA, Notre Dame, and Oregon. Could make some good money rolling over a moneyline parlay on them in their next three games assuming they take this one first.

However, you should never put 90% of your roll on any given play.

i took SC for 500 bucks which is about 10% of my bankroll but a large bet by my standards. I usually dont play any game this big, I usually just like to have action. I do like SC here.

Nobody should ever put 90% of their bankroll on one game unless their bankroll is $100 or less. USC should win, but a lot of games that should win don't which is exactly how Vegas likes it. I see about 75% of posters at various sites on USC so a UCLA victory wouldn't shock me in the least. Based on name recognition & pre season expectations USC is the play, but who exactly have they beaten to prove they were worth the hype? Their best win is a 10 point win at Washington. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for 90% of your bankroll.

this will be the first time all year i have bet against UCLA... this is not a good matchup for them... don't think this game will be very close...

i do expect a lot of points, though... also, USC was the hottest team in football last year, after a mediocre start... seems to be their M.O.... i expect them to finish strong again... including a win over over-rated Notre Dame...

I hate your friggin guts and all kickers for that matter. The rest of us are smacking heads in two a days in 99 degree heat, while you guys are kicking a few balls and laughing it up. then game time comes around and you kick a few extra points and then get just as much box on campus as any other player! FUCKN BULL garbage!   I am done venting. good luck with your play

damn man, 90% of your bankroll is alot. If you were serious about money management and staying on top, 90% is just too much. There are better games to look our there.

Hope you  hit your play.

games like this always end up losing in my experience....when you feel compelled to go all in, you wonder WTF happened to your bankroll Sunday morning.

They can't win the BCS, but they can keep UCLA from getting a shot at the Rose Bowl and keep ND from their undefeated season.   

They can't win the national title but they could in fact play in the rose bowl and not just stop ucla from playing in it. PAC 12 champ plays in an automatic bcs and if USC somehow beats Oregon they get it being in California. Ucla sucks when it comes down to it but so does lane kiffen. I'm not a fan of neither one of these teams as they have both played extremely inconsistent throughout the season. Good luck

Last year-- USC 50, UCLA 0.

Barkley won't choke but UCLA's QB might. 

USC usually plays well in their last few games.

At least it is an early game this year.  7 pm sucked.

Don't do it trust me. Or if you really like USC bet less than 20% of your bank roll. Ucla 5k for me. Good luck

I'm a big UCLA fan .....i've been very accurate on there games this year..Mora Jr. is the best coach UCLA has had in a long time...can't really think who the last good/great coach had ...Mora has this young UCLA Bruins believing in themselves....The only bad game UCLA had the year was against Cal.......Arizona had one of the Nation's top pass rush defense in the nation...They can bring the heat on Hundley, but Hundley is a great scrambler/ runner..There tight end is like 6'7" nobody on USC can cover a dude that tall....Franklin (which i never thought he was that good) is playin with alot of confidence. UCLA's weakness like USC's is there defense...This -IS- a UCLA home game....home team is 7-2 at home ....UCLA has a chip on there shoulder from getting embarassed last year 50-0 .........Hundley playin in his 1st year has been amazing ...They will be sky high for this game...Best team UCLA has had in ALOT of years....

Its UCLA here, and for the next few years to come...

You are not an idiot for betting 90% of your bankroll on a game.

 

I do think you are an idiot for thinking 90% of 400 is 320.

 

Just having fun with you man.....good luck.
