Last year 142-137 51% +14.3 units.

Have to improve on that to quit my day job.

Lets state with OK State -19.5 over UC Davis. The Aggie's will be predictably terrible. 1 unit.

Woffrd +17 at Colorado. 1 unit. Colorado isn't an up tempo style team and with all the newcomers, I don't see a blowout.

Alabama -6. 1 unit. I loved the Jack rabbits last year too but this is too much respect on the road to a pretty decent Bama squad.

Finally I didn't want to add but that line is pretty fat even though they lost Robinson. UCSB +9.5. 1 unit. LSU new coach and is young.

Awful 1-4 start.  Just like last year. -3.4 units.

Nevada -2.5 over UC Irvine.  2 units.  Seems like free money with the squads essentially the same from last year including UCIs crappy four seniors.

1-6. -6.7 units. Definitely a fade thread.

Cal -2 at Denver. Someone please explain this low line to me. Allan Crabbe looking like Pac-10 First team early. 3 units.

Fresno State -4. 1 unit. First home.game for the Bulldogs. Pacific isn't playing Holy Names this game.

Iona -6. 1 unit. Even in the Virgin Islands, Quinnipiaic won't be able to match up to the Gaels vets.

Nova +3.5. This isn't SEC football and I think the Nova fans closer to MSG on a Friday night helps. 1 unit.

Wyoming +2.  1 unit.  The proximity to Wyoming kills Greeley's home court advantage for this commuter school.

Butler +3.  Any team that rolls North Carolina has to get respect.  Illinois almost lost to Hawaii.  1 unit.

Colorado State +3.  1 unit.  I think the Rams can give DU a run for their money with two strong seniors in Iverson and Smith.

Adding Duke -5.5.  1 unit.  Not sure how VCU getting so much credit here.  The Memphis team they beat is struggling against Minnesota...who Duke pretty much handled well.  Wish it was more like -3.5 but I still dont see it that close.

Oakland +18.  Good grief, they aren't that bad.  Their biggest loss of the year was 11.  Michigan State just beat Boise by 4.  Not saying the Spartans wont win bu

Fresno State -5.  1 unit.  This isnt last years Long Beach State.  Fresno not putting teams away but they should win by 7-8.

San Diego State -1.  2 units.  I dont think USC is at the level of SD State.  The win over a bad Texas team is getting too much attention.

Montanta State +20.5.  Good grief, Oregon State isnt Kentucky.    More telling is Montana State has stayed close in all its losses and Oregon State hasnt blown anyone out.  2 units.

Virginia Tech -3.  1 unit.  I think the Hokies handle this one at home.  Iowa's best win is against Western Kentucky so I'll take the home team.
