Whats Up Family 


 is just a few weeks away !!! 

This is my Favorite time of the year ....


Been working hard all off season , already have a chunk of Futures pending , and will be adding Many more ...

Getting close to firing on 15+ preseason  college game of the year futures , as they have been my greatest ROI over the last 7 years ...


FUTURES are FANTASTIC , they provide loads of action , with plenty of chances to DOUBLE UP, Middle, & hedge during the season ...

Plan on putting 60% of my bankroll on Futures ..




Coming into this season with some extra coins after winning $5,300 on the world cup ( Many Thanks to FRANCE , VANZACK, & My families FIFIA 18 PS4 results)



Needed to start a new thread for futures since the other one is cluttered with posts from all the way back in January  ( Ill try to keep my degen  bets out of here) ...





( put the settings back to old school , and be prepared to be dazed by all the crazy colors, ultra fonts, rambling, fat fingered typing, errors etc.) 





BEST OF LUCK TO ALL COVERS BROTHERS 

MAY WE ALL LIVE IN FANTASTIC HEALTH

OLD DOMINION OVER 5.5. WINS -120
$1,200/1000

Top 25 in Returning Production 78% on offense / 80 % on Defense 

Injuries Ravaged this squad last year ...Setting up 2018 with lots of depth that got valueable playing time ly...

Could be the Chalk in 7+ games ...

18 yr old So. QB STEVEN WILLIAMS  should take a major step forward after showing good improvement as the year went on = 
  • Williams’ first 6 starts: 51% completion rate, 9.6 yards per completion, 11 INT, 89.7 passer rating
  • Williams’ last 3 starts: 71% completion rate, 10.9 yards per completion, 0 INT, 146.2 passer rating.
Only 1 player is gone from the O LINES 2 DEEP ...

14 of 15 return on the d line . Including 4 SR'S who combined for 45 TFL and 23.5 sacks .. 

Everyone from the 2 deep at LB returns ....

OLD DOMINION SCHEDULE BREAKDOWN 

AT LIBERTY -8.5

FIU.  -8.4

AT CHARLOTTTE -7.1
Could start off the year 3-0 , half of my predicted numbers have them losing one of the first 3 ...

AT VIRGINIA TECH  +20.4 

AT EAST CAROLINA   -6.1
If the Monarchs are 2-2 at this point , beating ECU is likely critical ...

AT FAU +10.4
Catching the Owls after they play AT UCF & AT MIDDLE TENNESSEE...Might be a live dog if catching 13+

MARSHALL  +0.6
Flip a coin ?

At WKU    +0.8 
Looks like a dosn year for Hilltoppers
Split Marshall & WKU should be good enough to help cash season wins futurw 

MIDDLE TENNESSEE pk 
Stockstill is back for his 9th season at qb ...lol .
Bye on deck 

Bye 

NORTH TEXAS -1.6
If the Monarchs are 3-6 this would likely be a hedge spot 

NICE TO END THE SEASON WITH VMI & AT RICE 

VMI  -30.5

AT RICE -7.1 



LONG SHOT FUTURES TO WIN CUSA

35-1  $90/$3150
Likely a donation , but do like what returns and 4 of last 6 conference games are at home ...

MARYLAND OVER 4.5 WINS -110 
$880/800
Over 4.5 -115
230/200
DJ DURKIN Is LOADED with SOLID RECRUITING CLASSES + IMPACT TRANSFERS...

The SCHEDULE is the KEY to this OVER !!!
HUGE BREAKS Drawing Minnesota,Iowa & Illinois from the West ..
Also catching division chalks Ohio St, Penn State, Michigan & Sparty in Land mine look ahead/ let down spots ( will break down schedule in following posts )..

Suffered a ship load of injuries last season ..QB KASIM HILL & PIGROME RETURN , 8 players threw a pass last year ... The O Line returns almost everyone in the 2 deep ..all 5 starters ....Running back depth and talent is solid ...Sure Dj Moore is gone , but look for some breakout playmakers at Wr ...

Offense only converted 29% on 3rd down, Cleary not having a qb skews all these stats.....Left the defense out on the field to die ..Defense allowed 49% on 3rd down conversions ..

5 of 7 top tacklers return ...Lb and Safety starters should take a major step forward.. ...D Line is gone , and that might be a good thing ,  solid transfers And Former Highly Rated Recruits Will Get A Chance To Shine ..

Lb and safety will have some playmakers 

Going BOWLING !!!   6-6,  Maybe 7-5 or better  If They Pull A Upset Or 2

I can see Maryland getting five, maybe six. At Iowa way tough as is at Penn St. Both those two are big at home. 

Losing those QB's last year make them look weaker than they probably are.

U AT BUFFALO TO WIN THE MAC 12-1 
$180/2160
Nice Value as the Locals released the Bulls at +475 & 5-1 ..The MAC is wide open... Qb Tyree Jackson &  Wr Anthony Johnson are one of top skill duos in the country ..Johnson was 2nd in the nation in yards rec per game ... Get ready for video game offensive numbers ...Was expecting the Bulls to be +800 , the 12-1 has great Value ...

ARIZONA WILDCATS OVER 7 -120
$852/710

My Numbers have Arizona as a double digit Chalk in 6 Games ...
Just need 2 others wins to cash ..
A few sets of my ratings predict 9+ wins.
Do not have losing any game by more than a td ...

Only 4 Pac 12 Road Games ...2-2 would likely cash the total futures ...3-1 OR BETTER could put them in conference championship ...

NFL FUTURES 

OAKLAND RAIDERS UNDER 9.5 
-103. $927/900
-105.  945/900
One of my Largest futures wagers ever... I cant see how signing a slew of 30+ yr olds will propel the Raiders to Double digit wins ...Was planning on betting them at anything 8.5 or more ...My local matched Betdsi opening numbers and I quickly maxed out on under 9.5 ...
My current numbers have Oakland winning 5-7 games ...

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS TO WIN SUPER BOWL 35-1.  

$290/$10,150 

LOVE the offseason additions to the team I already had as my clear cut number 1 seed in the AFC...MY Local is laughing at me , calling them a one year wonder.   Believe they have the best defense by a mile in the NFL ..Bortles will take another step forward with the additions of Moncrief, DJ Chark ( world class speed ) and ASJ at TE...O LINE gets a huge boost adding 1st team all pro G Andrew Norwell .... The D Line is even deeper than ly ..


Jacksonville Jaguars to WIN AFC 13-1 

$420/$4,460

BALTIMORE RAVENS TO WIN AFC NORTH +450.  $420/1890

Think the Browns and Ravens will be much improved , while the Steelers will take a step back ...+450 is Fantastic , Thought I would be lucky to get +300 ....Ravens should be full of piss & Vinegar after missing the playoffs on a crazy  hail mary/ coverage brain fart  vs the Bungals in week 17 ( sent my Bills to the Playoffs ) ...

Big upgrades to the offense with the additions of Willie Snead, John Brown, Michael Crabtree & Hayden Hurst ...

Lamar Smith is a wild card , and at the very least should light a fire under Flacco

THE SUNBELT IS  MY LEAST FAVORITE CONFERENCE TO BET WEEKLY ATS . 

I enjoy watching the games, without betting vs sharp odds makers .. 

Every year I put in a few SBC futures to avoid the temptation of forcing bets during the season ... 

ULM 12-1 TO WIN THE SUN BELT 
$84/$1008
The Warhawks have 56 returning lettermen , 17 starters ....

Caleb Evans could be the best QB in conference( along with Justice Hansen from ASU)...

DEFENSE returns 12 of 15 top tacklers , although they sucked , giving up almost 43 ppg in sbc play ... 

Sure 5 of the first 7 games are on the road, but the division crown might come down to Arkansas St..
Avoids APP St !!! 
My Numbers have ULM 5-3 or better in Sun Belt .

Adding more College Games of the Year Wagers 


Oct 13th 
NORTHERN ILLINOIS -4 vs Ohio 
$264/240
The Huskies have won 23 or the last 24 games vs the MAC EAST ... NIU has my number one rated O & D lines in the MAC .... This is Ohio's 4th Road game in 5 weeks ... 



Oct 20th  


MICHIGAN ST +2.5 vs MICHIGAN 
$220/200
I was expecting Sparty to be laying 3 ...State has won 8 of the last 10 in this series ...Both teams are coming off tough games , Sparty at PENN ST , Michigan off hosting Wisky ... I have these schools even , with Home Field being worth as much as a Touchdown ...


MISSISSIPPI ST +2.5 AT LSU 
$297/270
A loss here might the nail in Eddie O's coffin ... LSU is coming off Georgia , with at Florida before that ..Real chance the Tigers are 3-4 coming in , or possibly 2-5 .... Mississippi st. Is coming in off the bye and might be rolling at 6-0/5-1 .... I expect MSU to be laying a little more than a Field goal come game week ...Bulldogs won 37-7 last year ....Real close to betting LSU UNDER 7.5 season wins ....



ARIZONA -1.5 AT UCLA 
$341/310
Chip Kelly is going to have a rough first year in LA ....The  Bruins face Steele's hardest schedule in the country ..My numbers predict there is a good chance the Bruins enter this game 1-5 , if thats the case Arizona might be close to a 7 point chalk ...This one could get ugly !!! Would go larger on this , but i already have enough on the Arizona season wins Over ...

Thanks for stopping by Brother 

Im a big fan of Paul Johnson ...
Looks like this will be his best offense in 4+ years ... The Front 7 should be improved on defense , the secondary is a major concern ...

Here is my current schedule breakdown 

Alcorn st -44.5

At USF.  -1.3.  Coin flip , USF loses a ton and is 121 on steeles exp chart ... If you like the Ga Tech total this might be a must win 

At PITT. +4.9  Tough spot with Clemson coming to town the following week ..

CLEMSON. +14.1.   Might be a good ats spot if catching an jnflated number ...

Bowling Green -20.8

At LOUISVILLE +4.6 .  Catching the Cards after they host Florida st ... 
A win here would be huge for your over ..

DUKE. -3.9.     Cutcliffe has won 3 of last 4 vs Ga Tech and is coming in off the bye ..


Bye 

At VIRGINIA TECH. +6.8.   Tough thursday night game , but has beaten the Hokies in Blacksburg 2 in a row...

At UNC.   +6.    Steele like the Heels more than I do , this could make or break your bet ...

Miami  -0.3.    Flip a coin  ..the more i look at the Yellow Jackets schedule the more i would favor the under ....

Virginia. -7.5    the Hoos are not that bad this year and have won 2 of 3 from Ga Tech ...

At GEORGIA  +13.9.    No room to hedge if you need a win .....



This is going to be tough ...The ACC Schedule is Brutal ...All 6 road games are possible Losses ...  

Hate to talk you out of a bet , but to be honest if you Like Georgia Tech i would suggest playing them ATS early at USF, AT PITT , and Maybe hosting CLEMSON ...Believe you have a better chance of going 2-1 than you do winning this difficult season win over wager ..

6.5 is a bad number in my opinion , I am seeing over 6 -115 o. 5 D ...

7 wins would be impressive vs my 13th hardest schedule ..

Best of Luck Brother 
Enjoy your summer
