wow someone called that game fixed?  how?  the only game changing call in the game went against denver.  the "incomplete" pass that was reviewed on pitts on 20 was CLEARLY a backwards pass that Denver recovered.  Pitt went down to score a td on the same possession and climb back in it.  The refs also missed a facemask penalty on Pitt during Denvers last drive in regulation.  It would have given them a first down instead Pitt got the ball back with a chance to win it.

The facts are Denver played a great game.  Their offensive gameplan was the best its been in the last month and a half.  The took advantage of a lot of cover zero and cover 1 looks in the Pitt secondary.  Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor were outplayed by Thomas and Tebow.  End of story.

also in addition to reggie bush being out.  jake long is out for the dolphins.

rex ryan really should be fired if they lose this game.

yeah.  the jets looked like trash last week, but honestly how can they lose this game?  if they have ANY shot at a playoff berth they HAVE to win this game.

The one thing you can say about the Jets is at least they have beat the bad teams.  Loses have come against the Raiders, Ravens, Patriots, Broncos, Eagles and Giants.  Every team but the Eagles is a playoff team or a team that can make the playoffs tomorrow.  The Eagles well, they are the Eagles.

I'm taking the Jets and the three points.  Probrably will actually make a wager on the moneyline.

I do hate Mark Sanchez though.

purdue is controlling the clock and wearing down the WMU D.  I think the running game will be more effective in the second.  Carder really should have 4 picks at this point.

the only scary thing for western michigan is that purdue is controlling the ball a lot.  that will take a toll in the second half against a smaller team.

another tough game for the lakers.  third game in a row.  have had to travel between every game.  i know they stayed in california but that still has to be tough.

jazz playing their season opener.  fresh legs.  i'm going to make a small bet on the money line for the jazz.

oh also the MAC is 2-0 already this bowl season.  I think motivation wise Western Michigan probrably wants it more.  A victory against a Big 10 team would mean a lot more to them than a victory against a MAC team would Purdue.

Game is also played in Detriot Michigan.  Probrably not too many fans gonna fill up the stadium, but still...

i agree with the Western Michigan ML play.  I'm going to make a small bet on it.  Some caution for the over bettors.  Purdue will be missing three key people on offense.

Ralph Boden the leading rusher.  OJ Ross a contributor at WR.  Peters Drey, starting guard.  Also Akeem Shavers who is expected to replace Ralph Boden at RB is coming off a concussion.  We all know how serious people are taking those these days.

In addition to those guys Purdue will be without Dwayne Beckford who is a starting linebacker.

 

Western Michigan also has two people on offense suspended.  A TE and a FB.

Thats a lot of people not playing.  60 is a lot of points for any football game.  Not touching the total.

Gonna go small bet on Western Michigan ML.  Then will watch the game and live bet.

really its all going to come down to Atlanta.  I think we can all at least agree that New Orleans is going to come out and play with a level of intensity at least as high as they have played all year.

If you think good Atlanta shows up and matches their intensity then +7 is a good bet.  If you think bad Atlanta shows up then +7 isn't going to do much good.  The Saints would win by about 14.  Really i just don't see putting my faith in a team that is so jekell and hyde.  I can't get over the fact that Atlanta completely laid an egg in that first half vs Carolina when they had EVERYTHING to play for.  They were lucky Newton turned the ball over two times in the second half.

I think there will be points so i already bet the over, but even though i think NO will cover i'm going to wait and see what Atlanta team shows up and just bet the second half.

atlanta is in the playoffs right?  there is no way they don't make it now.  what do they really have to play for.  New Orleans on the other hand HAS to win if they want that first round bye.  We all saw what happened last year when they had to go to Seattle.  New Orleans simply is not the same team on the road.

I look for New Orleans to come out fired up, almost with playoff like intensity.  Atlanta, not really sure.  They really are hit or miss.  Remember the first half vs Carolina?  Carolinas offense simply shredded them, no reason a hot Saints team couldn't do the same thing at home.  At this time its Drew Brees back there, not Cam Newton turning the ball over to let them back.

I like the Saints -6.5

wow so much for the under.  both teams shoot nearly 50% and the refs send them to the line 65 times.  remind me to never bet on an NBA total again.

is it just me or is the total (202) waaay too high for this game?  Neither team lit up the scoreboard in their preseason games.  Paul Pierce iffy with the ankle.  Knicks committing more to defense with the signing of Tyson Chandler.

Knicks backcourt looks awful.  People still have to get the ball to Amare and Carmello.

I like under 202

i put a small bet on d rose for highest scoring player on opening day too.  he was +800 on sportsbook.  averaged 30 in the two games last year vs the lakers.

with a little luck maybe he does hit 40 and cash in.

lesson learned.  always trust my gut.  a weeks worth of espn hyping asu caused me to not bet tonight.  boise played like they should have and martin dominated.

Ok, a week ago i was sure Boise would cover the -14.  Maybe its because i've had to go through a weeks worth of ESPN talking about the ASU QB and their "raw" talent, but now i'm starting to feel much less confident. 

What i do know.  Boise's offense depends on execution.  Boise's WR's are not athletically overpowering like last year with Titus Young and Austin Pettis.  This year they are much more execution based.  Does a long layoff have an impact?  I would lean towards yes.  Boise might come out a little sluggish in the first quarter, maybe handing the ball to Doug Martin a little more in the second half of the quarter trying to get the offense going.

On ASU's side.  They are missing their most electric player on offense.  Boise DB Jamar Taylor is expected to be on the field, maybe helping out the pass D.  The pass D went downhill after Georgia because he and Gavins were injured.  The only reason they lost to TCU is because these two, Billy Winn AND Doug Martin were hurt.

Basically long story short i'm starting to lean towards the under.

68 points is a lot of points. 

I'm going under 68 and i'm not going to touch the point spread.

yeah i got the bulls +2 then went back right after the kobe news and got the bulls at 0. 

bynum is suspended for this game.  and kobe might be out.  a hungry bulls team that consists of d rose, rip hamilton, l deng, c boozer, taj gibson, and noah. 

lets go bulls.
