Whats Up Brothers ?????

Hopefully Everyone had a successful NCABB season  !!!! 
( It was my BEST EVER) 



I am LOCKED AND LOADED on NHL & NBA FUTURES, and plan on just letting them ride without any worries  on ATS/daily wagers.....

MLB is tough sledding and I have enough Futures and Fantasy to keep me following ..


Putting my full Handicapping Focus on the upcoming NCAA Football season ....






MAY WE ALL LIVE IN FANTASTIC HEALTH 

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL COVERS BROTHERS

MIAMI HURRICANES 

The Schedule is NOT that bad =
1 NO CLEMSON ,or LOUISVILLE from the Atlantic 
2 After the Bye 5 of the Next 6 games are at Home .4
3.  Could be the chalk in 11 of 12 games 


POSITIVES =

Defense is loaded after only giving up 22+ points 3 times last season 

10/11 of the top sackers are back after putting up 108 Tackles for loss last season 

The Top 9 Playmakers from the backfield are back .

WR Ahmmon Richards set a Miami FR Rec record 49-934-3  ( 19.06 per catch)

RB Mark Walton has 1117 rushing yards and 14 TD's 

 The D Line should be one of the best in Football 



Concerns 

Kaaya is Gone , but I thought he was vastly overrated anyways ..Malik Rosier was the backup last season , but many don't think he will be able to hold off top recruits N'Kosi Perry and ( jan enrolled) Cade Weldon ...Throw in Last years highly recruited Jack Alliison ... Evan Shirriffs as well  

Losing TE David Njoku hurts 



SCHEDULE WITH PROJECTED WIN %

BETHUNE-COOKMAN  100%

AT ARKANSAS ST  93%    
Should be laying 21+

AT FLORIDA ST   
39%   Might meet the Noles again in the ACC CHAMPIONSHIP ... Win or lose this game and anything is till possible   

TOLEDO   87%    
Tough let down spot , but Canes should be full of piss and vinegar ( especially off a loss)

at Duke  82.5%    
I dont expect much from the Blue Devils this season 

OPEN DATE 

GEORGIA TECH   84%
Nice to be coming in off a bye 

SYRACUSE  80%    
Is this a Look a head spot with at UNC on deck ????

AT NORTH CAROLINA 54%
Might be for a spot in the ACC Championship 

VIRGINIA TECH  65.5%
Hokies have some major losses to deal with 

NOTRE DAME  58.5%
How good will the Irish be this season ???? I usually fade away 

VIRGINIA  76%
Hoos could be much improved , but are they good enough to win at Miami 

AT PITT   50%    
How will the weather be ???




FUTURES =
I Guess its a wait and see how the QB spot shakes out , but for now I Like the 80-1 on the National championship for $40...

Want 7-1 or better to WIN ACC and +190 or more to win the Coastal 



MIAMI TO WIN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 80-1
$40/$3,200

DoubleUp, good to see you posting!  I'll be getting more involved in the forum after 4/21 (taking a licensing exam for work).  Been keeping up on Connelly's team previews when I don't feel like studying.

Always working on the offseason adjustments and trying to see how coaching changes effect style & pace of play.

Looking forward to the 2017 season!  I'd like to see some more discussion on teams with 1st thru 3rd year head coaches.

OREGON 

What Had Happened last Year ???? 

Were they playing Defense with one or two players in the penalty box ???

Fast Forward = Say Hello to one of My favorite Head Coaches in Willie Taggart , Also like his staff of DC Jim Leavitt , and Co OC Mario Christobal and Marcus Arroyo ....I Was never a Fan of the last regime and this should be a Major upgrade 


POSITIVES =   8 STARTERS are back on Offense ( 15th LY with 492 Total Yards) ...Royce Freeman could have went pro, but he decided to return ..Tony Brooks James gives the Ducks a Top 5 Backfield IMNHO ...QB Justin Herbert is back after throwing 19 TD's and only 4 INTS in his Fr year ...4 Starters on the O line ...
WR's Sr. Darren Carrington should have a Big Year after 43-606-5 as well as Charles Nelson 52-554-5   ..SOLID RECRUITING ( 19th overall by Many) including talented CB/WR's .....


CONCERNS =    DEFENSE !!!! But I believe Leavitt  will have them at least average ( 60th ??) in his first year 

10 Starters Return on the Defense ( Cant get any worse ???)    3rd worst in yards ( 518) and 3rd worst in PPG ( 41+)  ......... 

BOTH of the TOP TE'S are gone

I wouldn't put too much faith in oregon......Especially early on. It's gonna take some time to build a defense.....& with the off field issues, I can see this being .500 season at best.

Great to hear from you Brother ....  MUCH RESPECT 

USC and Washington should be clear CHALK/FAVES  in the PAC 12 


If I could get Oregon Over 6.5/7 SEASON WINS  at -125 OR LESS I would POUND IT...   .... 

8-4 or better  Looks Real possible IMNHO\
 ... ... 

4 Of the DUCKS FIRST  6 GAMES ARE AT HOME !!!!
Should help with the Adjustments 



MY CURRENT PROJECTED WIN % FOR THE FIRST 6 GAMES 


vs Southern Utah 99%
nice tuneup 

vs NEBRASKA   58%
A Win here would be a HUGE CONFIDENCE BOOST 
  
AT WYOMING     84.5%
Cowboys had a nice season , but this should be a tough spot for them 

AT ARIZONA ST   63%
CATCHING the SUN DEVILS in a BRUTAL SANDWICH   ( VS SAN DIEGO ST/ AT TEXAS TECH /  VS OREGON / AT STANFORD )
   
vs CAL      82%
BEARS have lots of work to do 

vs WASHINGTON ST   63.5%
I am a Big Pirate and FALK fan , but HF could be worth a TD + plus in EUGENE ...
COUGARS are coming OFF A HUGE HOME GAME VS USC 



5-1 /4-2/6-0  ????

OREGON CONTINUED 

2nd HALF OF THE SCHEDULE 


AT STANFORD  46.8%
I have some concerns about the CARDINAL QB AND O -LINE ..
That being said Stanford is def. a contender in the North, But AT THIS POINT I THINK THEY MIGHT BE FADE WORTHY IN THE GAME OF THE YEAR  LINES  ..
Stanford could already have 2+ Losses at this point !!!!
vs Rice  /  AT USC  /   AT SAN DIEGO ST  /  vs UCLA  /
vs ARIZONA ST  /    AT UTAH.
 
Would possibly take OREGON +4.5 OR MORE IN THIS SPOT ON THE GOY LINES 



AT UCLA   44.6%
The Bruins offense could be FANTASTIC , But the Defense will be missing some key parts ....
Might be a Tough spot for the Ducks in the schedule ...
This total might be 75+

UTAH  63.2 %
Utes lose 4 Starters on the O-line and RB Joe Williams ...
Might have a 3 headed QB battle ???
7 Starters gone on Defense 
Would give the Ducks 75% here but the Huskies are on deck ..


AT WASHINGTON   22.1%
Huskies should HUGE CHALK to WIN the NORTH.. 
4 OF THEIR LAST 5 GAMES ARE AT HOME.. 
Little bit of a sandwich spot for Washington as they Host UCLA the week before and have AT STANFORD ON DECK 


ON PAPER THE DUCKS CLOSE WITH 2 WINNABLE HOME GAMES 

vs ARIZONA   70.4%
Wildcats should be better, Might need DUCKS to be looking ahead to the CIVIL WAR... 

vs OREGON ST  75.6%
MONSTER REVENGE SPOT 
Usually don't WAGER GOY LINES this far in advance , but I would likely pound the Ducks minus -14 or less  




8-4 or better seems likely to me ....if they start 6-0 , 10-2 is not out of the question ...

HUGE WEEK 2 GAME VS NEBRASKA could be the FORK IN THE ROAD ... Would bet the DUCKS -6 or less on the goy lines

If they start 3-3 , I could still see them Bowl bound at 500.+ 



NOT SURE ABOUT FUTURES BETTING UNLESS THE DIVISION ODDS ARE HIGH  , but I will be Looking at 3+ GOY LINES

THANK YOU BROTHER FOR THE KINDNESS ....
This World is full of so much NEGATIVITY  and blind hate ...

 APPRECIATE that people READ MY DEGEN THREADS ..



I ENJOY  doing early work for the COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON ... 
INVESTORS can often find some GREAT VALUE IN THE PRE SEASON GOY LINES & OTHER FUTURES 


 BELIEVE PROJECTING EACH SCHOOLS SCHEDULE WIN/LOSS %is ONE OF the MOST CRUCIAL ASPECTS OF CFB HANDICAPPING ..
STARTS IN APRIL and CONTINUES through THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ....
