Hey Brackson 13! Thanx for the inspiration!

Congrats on your streak...funny I was wondering if you were male or female for a second and thankfully (& hopefully for the majority of other people here too) I don't care. It's cool that there are tons of skilled & successful women on this sight. Keep on rockin it "bro" lol, I mean ma'am.....

I know the answer will be "it's a free contest" - we're just making suggestions and we appreciate the free opportunity, at least I do. 
                                                                                               Yeah I agree with you Crazy_Train, I've always wondered the same thing, why not offer the other side. That would be amazing. Love Streak Survivor. Great contest. Haven't seen too many people getting past 11 or 12 though lately. Would always be cool to see a few more pick options. Good luck y'all!

Don't expect too much too soon.

Good point. Great coach also at Utah...one of the most underrated in the country. I like Utes to cover 4.5. I think Michigan is overmatched here, especially on the road. So much pressure on Michigan & Harbaugh to win NOW. Could be ugly...

Agree Oklahoma will be better than usual for Stoops' already high standard...they are my relative longshot for national champ or possibly final 4.  They lost several heartbreakers last year and really have a solid team coming back. I'm not a Sooners fan either so definitely an unbiased opinion here. Good luck to all!!!  2 days til kickoff!!! Gotta love this time of year!

Lohse has pretty much sucked...but Kershaw has been "touchable" this season.  But the bigger deal to me is the news I just saw across the ticker, Roenicke was fired as Brewers' manager. I almost always like to play a team the game after a manger is fired (in season) as it instills optimism in troubled teams almost every time. Wish it wasn't vs Kershaw and Dodgers, but still will play MIL. I'm gonna wait though, as I think Kershaw backers will push the line further...not so used to seeing him at a "reasonable" price vs such a bad team. Good luck all !!!

UMass hasn't played in 18 days...wonder how that will affect their play? I think most people assume that will be a big advantage with football being such a physical sport with such a high incidence of injury. But not so fast...I've seen many times when teams come back after extended breaks (NFL reg season or playoff byes & college bowl games come to mind) disoriented and/or lethargic. Just another factor to consider. I think it will probably help UMass though. And I like that they're playing in the small, on-campus stadium vs. Gillette. Thanks for that info Cats. It should be significant.

the books know the majority of bettors will be on Boise

so where would you set the line if you were a book?
too high.
just sayin.

might be a good play
I dunno
no play for me

smells


That's a really good point. The bigger the fan base usually the more inflated the spread. They know that very few people are going to bet on a team as down as Uconn.

Yeah, like the Cavs too. MIL has a bunch of injuries, a couple look like their first games missed (Neal and IIyasova). and they've played like shite since Butler has been out. Cavs are playing about as well as they are gonna play....so gettem while they're hot!!!!

Wished I could view the replay of that game and see who the dumb DB was that kept getting burnt with TD passes. The Fresno team is staying at the Hardrock hotel witch is right across the street from UNLV yet off the strip. But the USC boys are staying at Mandalay Bay. Hmmmm. You don't think the SC boys are easily walking the Strip and having fun cruising the nights away ?  Money will be on Fresno St plus the ML.


Not sure i agree. Been to Vegas many times and the walk from Hard Rock to the strip is a much easier walk than Mandalay. MB is on LV blvd. But not sure any of those logistics really matter. If you're there to play football or if you're there to play hookers, alcohol, and casinos...that is the question. My guess is the USC boys are going to be the bigger violators (they are the University of Spoiled Children). Just a guess. I think a bigger deal is the SC players are still pissed off that coach O is no longer there. They would run through walls for that guy. Also just read a report (10 hours ago) that new coach Steve Sarkisian is taking heat for a recruiting violation by one of his assistants at WAS. Might not be that big, but surely doesn't help. Not to also mention that SC is not thrilled to be playing on the first day of bowl games, some of the absolute worst. I think Fresno is happy to be there even though they also had much higher aspirations. Fresno is much more stable, much more grateful, healthier...Fresno and the over....small.

FRESNO ST. +6-


I agree also. SC is too much of a mess right now. Undeniable talent, but we all should know that's only about half the battle. I think this one will be a back and forth shootout. The best play here is the Over.
