Los Angels Rams vs New England 6:30 ET
Rams (+) over Patriots- I had to get this out sooner then later because I don't want to be distracted by any 'October Surprise' so to speak. 'We' have been riding the Patriots throughout the playoffs against the Chargers and two weeks ago again at Kansas City. In both instances the 'public' was against New England and now their attitude has changed and 'they' are overwhelmingly on Tom Brady and crew. The speak I keep hearing is how Los Angeles shown't even be here or that they don't belong here. Well, guess what they are here and the Saints couldn't hold the lead with two minutes to go, so boo on them. The Rams come into this fray 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four while the Patriots have scored 78 in the past two playoff games and any team that scores 70 or more points in two playoff games as a favorite is 0-6 ATS. In Las Vegas the 'sharps' are buying the Rams every time the game moves to +3 as they are jumping on what they consider value as LA did open -1.5. I can't help it and I believe this is a really strong play for the most part because people don't believe the Rams belong. Take LOS ANGELES!

L.A. Rams at New Orleans 3:05 ET
Saints (-) over Rams- A pair of great offensive teams with the exact same record (14-3) will be playing in 'perfect' conditions but one of them with have a huge advantage, and that is a raucous fan base. The Saints at home have already beaten L.A. 45-35 the first week in November. In that contest New Orleans went off as an underdog (+1.5) and now the oddsmakers believe that they are 5-points better (by-the-line) now than then. I could talk of the experience advantage at quarterback and combine that with the Saints having won their last seven home playoff games six with Brees at the helm alone with the home team going 7-0 in the last seven meetings. One last thing to pee on the Rams, LA is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six against teams with winning records. Take NEW ORLEANS!
|01-12-19||Colts v. Chiefs -5||Top||13-31||Win||100||22 h 15 m||Show|
Indianapolis at Kansas City 4:35 ET
Chiefs (-) over Colts- I think by now all have realized that Indianapolis has won 10-of-11 since their 1-5 start the best record in the entire NFL the past 12 weeks. Kansas City just hasn't been the same since the release of Kareem Hunt as they have gone 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games with the lone ATS win in the final game against Oakland 35-3 which makes me think that was their 'tune-up' game. Chiefs first-year starter Pat Mahomes had 50 TD passes and threw for over 5,000 yards and they storyline for this matchup is about Andrew Luck. But, the Colts luck has run out! Too much attention to Indy and I keep hearing how KC is 0-4 Su and ATS in their last four playoff games as host. Take KANSAS CITY!
|01-07-19||Alabama v. Clemson +5.5||Top||16-44||Win||100||30 h 4 m||Show|
Clemson vs Alabama 8:00 ET
Tigers (+) over Crimson Tide- A great rematch of 14-0 teams that both finished 8-6 ATS on the season. Alabama has won three of the last four meetings including last years 24-6 win as they allowed Clemson just 188 yards total offense although they are 2-2 ATS. In the meetings for the Championship two years age the Tigers defeated the Tide 35-31 with over 500 yards offense and the season before the Crimson won 45-40. This again may end up a classic as they are the two most talented teams in college football and the points are worth taking. Take CLEMSON!
|01-06-19||Chargers v. Ravens -2.5||Top||23-17||Loss||-115||15 h 30 m||Show|
San Diego at Baltimore 1:30 ET
Ravens (-) over Chargers- Okay gang, which is the storyline that will remain prevalent in people's minds concerning this game. Will the populace be thinking that San Diego with Phillip Rivers who has the talent and 16 years experience to lead the Chargers to victory against the Ravens rookie quarterback who is better off running than throwing the football. These two hooked-up two weeks ago in San Diego and Baltimore (+4) won 22-10 as they held the Chargers to 198 yards total offense. One of the illusions of this contest is that San Diego has a more diverse (yes) and potent offense but, Baltimore actually has a slight advantage in total offense. There are trends to support either side as the road team is 4-0 ATS in last four meetings and the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. But, they don't stand up to Baltimore being 7-0 ATS in their last playoff games including 5-0 ATS in Wildcard games. The believe the overall money will be too strong for the Chargers to over-come. Take BALTIMORE!
|01-05-19||Seahawks v. Cowboys -123||Top||22-24||Win||100||26 h 30 m||Show|
Seattle at Dallas 8:00 ET
Cowboys (-) over Seahawks- These two met in Week three in Seattle (-1) winning 24-13, although it that game the Cowboys had a small yardage advantage but still lost by double-digits. At season's start and even midway through the NFL schedule I had little faith in the Seahawks but they showed me that they are winners in 6-of-last-7 including 5-2 ATS. What I saw was a Pete Carroll coached team that got better as the season wore on and Russell Wilson is still among the best when on the move. Both clubs are 10-6 while Seattle has an edge on offense (because of Wilson) and a slight edge to Dallas on defense but not as much as most think as the Seahawks lead the NFL in take-aways plus-15 differential. When I first saw the 'number' my first thoughts were that Dallas is in trouble and I am surprised at the volume of Seattle backers and now it is too big to stop. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings but Dallas is 7-1 straight-up at home and they will be ready. Intangibles will make the difference here, meaning home field revenge. Take the COWBOYS!
|01-01-19||Washington +7 v. Ohio State||Top||23-28||Win||100||25 h 22 m||Show|
Washington at Ohio State 5:00 ET
Huskies (+) over Buckeyes- Now, this is an amazing fact...the Big Ten and Pac-12 have had their conference champions play in the Rose Bowl every year for eons and these two clubs have played for the Roses 15 times each, but have never played each other. It has been a bit of a disappointing season for both clubs as early season goals were to get to the FBS Final-4. Washington blew their shot in their opener losing to Auburn so understood the entire season that the Rose Bowl was their best option while Ohio State received their disappointment late in the season and that is a key factor. Urban Meyer is stepping down and like Woody Hayes in his final game I expect the Buckeyes to go out a point-spread loser. The field 'numbers' say fade the Huskies but they came on strong at seasons end and get it done by winning the Pac-12 and get the win here. Take WASHINGTON!
|01-01-19||LSU -7 v. Central Florida||Top||40-32||Win||100||22 h 40 m||Show|
LSU vs Central Florida 1:00 ET
Tigers (+) over Panthers- Now, this is one of the more difficult games to handicap as Central Florida remains undefeated in their last 25 games but will be without star quarterback McKenzie Milton who is out and will be replaced by freshman Darriel Mack, Jr. The Panthers freshman have the support of 22 seniors that defeated Auburn 34-27 as a 10-point underdog in last season's Peach Bowl win but this time they sneak up on no one. Here's where the 'rub' is on this game, LSU is ranked No. 11 and Central Florida (undefeated) is ranked No. 8 and yet the Tigers are favored. The 'public' has finally jumped on the Panthers but it's too late. Take LOUISIANA STATE!

N.C. State at Texas A&M 7:30 ET
Wolfpack (+) over Aggies- I 'loved' this one right from the start as I have seen some of this talent up front and liked what I saw. I wonder if the Aggies legs have yet recovered from their 74-72 seven-overtime win over LSU upping their home record to 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS. I point this out to say that Texas A&M doesn't take well to the road going 1-3 SU 2-2 ATS and having played just four of 12 games away from their famous '12th man.' But, it is not the Aggies offense that will steal the show it will be N.C. State and quarterback Ryan Finley who led the ACC in passing with 3,789 yards along with 24 touchdowns. A&M will be shocked by the Wolfpack's receivers speed. Take NORTH CAROLINA STATE!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' AFC 'Highest-Rated' Megabucks
Indianapolis at Tennessee 8:20 ET
Titans (+) over Colts- The Colts coming galloping into Nashville riding a three-game winning streak and eight of nine and that makes this one easy as the winner is in and the loser is out! After starting the season 1-5 Andrew Luck and the Colts have shocked the entire NFL community with his and their performance this season and he brings a 10-0 record against Tennessee to the table. Luck is second behind Mahomes in TD passes (36) in the AFC and we know he will under center on Sunday. On the other side we are no so sure and I don't even know if it matters because Marcus Mariota has under 200 yards passing the past two weeks (combined) and hasn't thrown a touchdown in three weeks. The Titans have won their last four and are second in scoring defense 18-pts and have allowed one touchdown the last three weeks. Take TENNESSEE!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' FBS Game of Year (10-1 91%)
Notre Dame vs Clemson 4:00 ET
Tigers (-) over Fighting Irish- I guess this double-digit price has driven more people than I expected to side with the points and Notre Dame. For the most part for the past four weeks I have heard nothing but, 'the Fighting Irish are imposters, they don't play anyone and they choke in big games.' Well if that is the case why do they have so many backers. Clemson of course had three players get caught with their hands in the cookie jar so to speak and will be suspended for the FBS tourney but I don't think it will matter that much. The Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last five non-conference games but this one has more significance than all the others combined. Take CLEMSON!
|12-28-18||Syracuse v. West Virginia +3||Top||34-18||Loss||-115||17 h 32 m||Show|
West Virginia vs Syracuse 5:15 ET
Mountaineers over Orange- West Virginia at one time was ranked in the Top-10 but as they do often they collapsed at the end of the season losing their final two games to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The Mountaineers open as a virtual touchdown favorite but that changed drastic when quarterback Will Grier and their starting left tackle decided to abandon their teammates a save their soon to be pitiful careers. Syracuse won five of their final six games with that loss showing just who they really are as Notre Dame (Game of Year winner) crushed to Orange like they were making juice 36-3. West Virginia has had four weeks to prep and coach Dana Holgorsen says his playbook will be wide open as he uses two quarterbacks Jack Allison and Trey Lowe III. That will leave the Syracuse defense a bit confused. Look for the Mountaineers to suck it up and win here. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the that five meetings. Take WEST VIRGINIA!

Chip's Guaranteed 'Highest-Rated' Pin Stripe Bowl
Miami vs Wisconsin 5:15 ET
Hurricanes (-) over Badgers- Both these clubs were major disappointments not only to their fans but to their 'backers' as well. Miami was sitting pretty the first week of October at 5-1 and then dropped their next four until closing with a pair of easy wins over Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh going 2-4 ATS on the road. That same week Wisconsin was 5-1 and then went 3-4 the rest of the way but just 3-9 ATS. This is a rematch of lasts year's Orange Bowl when Wisconsin won outright in Miami 34-24 . The Hurricanes are just 1-7 in their last eight bowl games and it seems a bit strange for them to be favored here. I figure 'speed kills' and the Canes have plenty of it and may leave the lead footed Badgers holding their jocks. The Badgers just haven't had it this season. Take MIAMI!
|12-26-18||Minnesota +6 v. Georgia Tech||Top||34-10||Win||100||30 h 8 m||Show|
Minnesota vs. Georgia Tech 5:15 ET
Golden Gophers (+) over Yellow Jackets- The storyline here will surround the fact that Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson has stepped down and will be on the sideline for the final time with the Yellow Jackets. Johnson's triple-option has been among the NCAA rushing leaders perennially and as usual his team got better as the season wore on winning six of their last seven. Minnesota also needed a late push winning three of their final five to become bowl eligible including a final season 37-15 victory over Wisconsin. Although Minnesota will be with two outstanding defensive players they will overcome Tech's sudden attitude with the departure of Johnson. Take MINNESOTA!
|12-24-18||Broncos v. Raiders +3||Top||14-27||Win||100||10 h 29 m||Show|
Denver at Oakland 8:15 ET
Raiders (+) over Broncos- What a paradox as a team as 'dark and sinister' as the Raiders who will host this game in the 'Black Hole' on Christmas Eve. Oakland is in the running for the worst NFL record and the first draft pick and will be moving to Las Vegas (Stadium issues) but most likely will play next season in San Francisco. After rising up at home and defeating Pittsburgh the Raiders reverted back to form and were taken out 30-14 in Cincinnati last week. Denver meanwhile has dropped their last two to fall out of the AFC wild card hunt and will most likely end up in the middle of the pack. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and gets it done here. Take OAKLAND!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' NFC 'Highest-Rated' Megabucks
Chicago at San Francisco 4:05 ET
49ers (+) over Bears- Having used the Niners last week as a Power Play Best Bet 'outright' winner over Seattle I have no problems coming back with them this week. The Bears are in the same position as a number of others that have failed in the same situation, the week after they have clinched a playoff spot (Rams, Saints, and Chiefs) they all were beaten and I expect the same to happen here. If a team isn't ready mentally it doesn't matter who they put out on the field and coming off a win against Aaron Rogers doesn't help. Chicago is 1-4 ATS in their last five games in San Francisco and this season all four of the Niners wins came at home. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' Money Game Winner
Baltimore at L.A. Chargers 8:20 ET
Ravens (+) over Chargers- There are a few what I consider 'key' factors that are supporting my position on the contest. To start with the Chargers have already clinched a playoff spot and that has been a death nil the next time out for teams that clinched I.e.-Rams, Pats, Saints and Chiefs all lost after clinching a spot. Just in general with L.A. Coming off ending a nine-game losing streak against Kansas City there has to be a feeling of satisfaction, inflated ego and contentment, all this plays into the Ravens hands. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five as well as the road team 4-1 ATS in last five meetings. This will be a match of strengths as Baltimore will try and control the ball on the ground averaging over 200 yards since Lamar Jackson took over at QB. But, LA's strength is their rushing defense and Melvin Gordon on offense as well as a seasoned Phil Rivers at QB. The clinching in the clincher. Take BALTIMORE!

Ohio vs San Diego State 8:00 ET
Aztecs (+) over Bobcats- Okay, 'we' have some issues about this game with Ohio from the Mid-American Conference being favored. As it is, the MAC has had one of the worst bowl results than any other conference even worse than the Big-Ten and have already lost with Northern Illinois this time around. San Diego State who at one time was 6-1 has lost their last three and five of six and are 1-6 ATS in their last seven contests. The Aztecs were beset with injuries to key personal who have returned for this contest. Ohio who runs the ball for the most part will be up against the Aztecs defense that ranks fourth nationally in rushing defense. Take SAN DIEGO STATE!

Panthers (+) over Saints- Carolina's year has been a 'Tale of Two Seasons.' It was five short weeks ago the halfway point in the season and the Panthers were riding high on the arm and legs of Cam Newton and they have lost five straight four of which were on the road. New Orleans has already clinched the division and is battling the Rams for the conference lead. Carolina will close the season at New Orleans and will need to start here first. They are 5-1 SU at home and the underdog is7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Take the PANTHERS!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' AFC Game of Year (9-1 90%)
New England at Pittsburgh 4:25 ET
Steelers (+) over Patriots- Pittsburgh had a shaky start to the season opening 1-2-1 and then reeled off six straight wins to take command at 7-2-1. But, since then, they have dropped three straight and now hold just a half-game lead over the charging Ravens. New England of course is still steady and it took a freaky last play of the game touchdown to beat them last week in Miami. Tom Brady always seems to be at his best when up against 'name' quarterbacks and is 5-0 the last five meetings including twice last season and has 25 TD's and only four interceptions in 10 career games against Pittsburgh. Find and good, but, the Steelers are 8-1 ATS at home as an underdog off a loss. New England is just 3-4 SU and ATS on the road go down here. Take PITTSBURGH!

Seattle at San Francisco 4:05 ET
49ers (+) over Seahawks- Now let me step back and get a good look at this scenario. From what I've seen out of Seattle the past four weeks is nothing but wins and 'covers.' the Seahawks are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games including a 43-16 beatdown of San Francisco two weeks ago at home. The Niners have struggled once again although they gone the outright win over Denver last week they are were 1-5 ATS in the pervious six. Then I look at the series between these two and see the Seahawks with nine straight wins and wonder why this line opened so low and got lower. With Kansas City up at home next week Seattle will get caught peeking. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Cleveland at Denver 8:20 ET
Broncos (+) over Browns- Okay, here we go...I kept hearing that the Browns are closing in on a playoff spot despite their 5-7-1 record. A mighty improvement over the past few years as they finally dumped their 'dead-weight' coach Hue Jackson who is now helping with the dismantling of the Bengals. Denver is also in the mix after three straight wins but the loss to the Niners last week have them is dire need of a win here. A win last week for Cleveland was their third in four games but they have followed five wins by going 1-4 ATS the next time out. Denver is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings...take the BRONCOS! (PS- Don't miss Chip's AFC Game of the Year (9-1 90%) on Sunday!

Arizona State vs. Fresno State 3:30 ET
Sun Devils (+) over Bulldogs- Fresno State enters Las Vegas winners of their last three and nine of 10 including the Mountain West Championship overtime 19-16 win over Boise State. With seven wins and a trip to a bowl game most are surprised Herm Edwards was able to pull off a successful first season at Arizona State and they enter with four wins tin their last five. Normally, I'm concerned about the MWC's ability to stay with the Pac-12 but the Sun Devils have been a piece of cake for the inferior conference going 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings. ASU's leading receiver will skip this game and that will put the ball in the hands of All Pac-12 running back Eno Benjamin who had 277 carries for 1,524 yards. Take ARIZONA STATE!

San Diego at Kansas City 8:20 ET
Chargers (+) over Chiefs- Over the years we have had numerous opportunities make money in big games with the Chargers and they always seem to have fallen short. At 10-3 Los Angeles (Don't I mean San Diego) has become a formidable for for the AFC leading Chiefs. Kansas City is undefeated at home at 6-0 but just 3-3 ATS while the Chargers are 5- straight and AATS on the road. Although LA is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings the road team is 6-1 ATS and it is time for Philip Rivers take up when it counts and show the young phenom Mahomes what a veteran can do.

Minnesota at Seattle 8:15 ET
Vikings (+) over Seahawks- A month ago the Seahawks appeared 'dead in the water' as they were under .500 at 4-5, but, they have managed to win their last three games to put themselves back in the playoff hunt. Even with their loss last night the Rams have the division clinched and Seattle is scraping for a Wild Card spot. At 6-5 Minnesota has a half-game lead over Philadelphia, Washington and Carolina and have alternated wins and losses the last five games. The Vikings have struggled against 'better' competition as they are 1-7 ATS in their last eight against teams with winning records. Seattle has won the last four meetings but Russell Wilson is trowing for a career low 226 yards a game. Take MINNESOTA!

Bears (+) over Rams- A month ago the Rams were dropped for the ranks of the unbeaten by New Orleans and everybody decided that the Saints were the best team in the NFC. Well, three wins latter and Los Angeles is atop the NFC and has clinched the NFC West Division crown for the second straight year. Last week Chicago mounted a second half comeback against in New York but fell in overtime 30-27 to the Giants with Chase Daniels at the helm ending a five-game win streak. It appears Mitch Trubisky will be back running the Bears offense and will be opposed by Jared Goff. With the Rams having already clinched I believe that that believe they will be totally focused but I think not. Important game of Chicago who are 6-2 ATS against the rams in the last eight meetings and they are 6-0-1 ATS at home against a team with a winning record while LA is 0-3-1 ATS against teams with winning records. Take CHICAGO!

Redskins (+) over Giants- A few short weeks ago the Redskins had a two-game lead and were running away with the NFC East and now after three straight losses and a plethora of injuries that are and underdog at home to a 4-8 New York Giants team. For Washington the answer is Mark Sanchez who will make his first start since 2015 and the third different quarterback to start for the Redskins in the past four weeks. New York has won 3-of-4 and is off a home overtime win over Chicago. I expect a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson to protect Sanchez's limited knowledge of the offense. This may not be so bad with the porous Giants defensive line and their strong defense putting pressure on Eli Manning how will get nervous feet. The underdog is 11-5 n the last 16 meetings and now without Beckham to Giants drop another notch. Take WASHINGTON!

Midshipman (+) over Cadets- As an 'Army' man (drafted) I always felt a pang every year as the Navy with superior talent just ran roughshod over the Cadets time and again winning 14 straight in the series and many of them not even close. This time around the roles are reversed as it is the Army that is 9-2 and riding a seven game win streak while the Navy is 3-9 and off a loss to Tulane and 8-of-9. It has been eons since The Army has been this kind of favorite in this game. The Knights are favored by a solid touchdown and ranked No. 25 with a ground attack that produces over 300 yards per game, only Georgia Tech averaged more. The Navy has lost 12 straight away from home but are No. 3 nationally in rushing at 288.5 yards a game. The Midshipman's defense has been questioned but and rightfully so surrendering 35 points per games but, their level of competition is stronger then the Army's Ivy league fare. Although, this season the Knights defeated both mutual opponents while Navy lost to both Hawaii and Air Force. Still, this is ARMY/NAVY...take a hungry dog! Take NAVY!

These two have met five times the last 15 years with the road team going 4-1 ATS.

Wildcats (+) over Buckeyes- Having used the Buckeyes as my Early-Bird winner (10-2 86%) over Michigan last Saturday I have no qualms about playing against them this week. My problem is not on how good Ohio State's offense is but in my lack of confidence in Northwestern who I deem as being a bit short in talent with recent bowl editions. I expect this line to keep running 'up' until game time as the 'public' will believe that the #6 Buckeyes must run up the score to overcome #5 Oklahoma who played earlier. This just sweetens the pot for the Wildcats who will be looking to win the game. Take NORTHWESTERN!

The Huskies were the Pac-12 favorites to become the first team from the conference to get into the FBS Final–4, but were exposed early in a loss to Auburn as quarterback Jake Browning and running back Myles Gaskin just didn't reach their potential. The Huskies already own a win over the Utes a 21-7 victory on September 15 but the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. Washington is 0-5 ATS in their last five on grass while Utah is 7-1 ATS in their last eight on grass. The Utes are going with replacement quarterback Jason Shelley which only strengthens their resolve. Take UTAH!

New Orleans at Dallas 8:20 ET
Cowboys (+) over Saints- How long can this go on...no not the Jerry Show in Dallas but show Drew Brees and the Saints have put on since NFL Week 2. That's when the picked-up their first win of the year as 21-18 non-cover win over Cleveland and then nine straight wins nine straight 'covers' including 5-0 SU and ATS on the road. Dallas is another story at 6-5 share the lead in the NFC East and have won three straight with Ezekiel Elliott once again becoming the league's leading rusher (1,074 yards). The Cowboys will need that to keep the ball out of Brees hands (76.4 completions) and possess the ball. Pokes must come up with 'Big D' to win here. Take DALLAS!

Tennessee at Houston 8:15 ET
Titans (+) over Texans- The Houston Texans are on a franchise high seven-game win streak after dropping their first games this season. This steak has not been as impressive as say the Saints streak because they are just 4-6 ATS overall and just 1-3 ATS at home as they have won four games by three points or less. The Monday night scenario is so one-sided I have to consider it a key factor, Tennessee is 7-0 ATS in their last seven MNF appearances while Houston is 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Monday nighters. Tale TENNESSEE!

Green Bay at Minnesota 8:20 ET
Vikings (-) over Packers- Do you still believe in Aaron Rogers...I'm not so sure anymore. Yes, he's still great, I see that, but something is different. With Green Bay at 4-5-1 (tie vs Minny) a loss would pretty much make them a playoff after though. Both clubs are off losses with the Vikings quarter Kirk Cousins under fire of late losing 2-of-3 with only five touchdowns and four interceptions. It's time for him to shine for Minnesota in front of a national audience. Green Bay is 0-5 SU on the road and have lost four of six and is 0-4-1 ATS in their last five games on field turf (How 'bout dat!). The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five games and are the play here. Take MINNESOTA!

Trojans (+) over Fighting Irish- Last week 'we' had Best Bet winners in both these teams matchups as Notre Dame crushed Syracuse 36-3 Power Play winner and USC fell 'outright' 34-27 to UCLA in our Rivalry winner. After what 'we' saw last week and with the Irish needing just to win here to go undefeated and grasp a spot in the college football version of the Final-Four this line will be greatly inflated. On the other side, after winning 11 games and the Pac-12 title the Trojans must get an upset win here they will miss out on a bowl game. USC has lost four of their last five but will put a maximum effort here. Take the generous points...take SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!

Louisiana State at Texas A&M 7:30 ET
Aggies (-) over Tigers- Okay, here we have it! The 'Jerry Special,' you remember that...It's when an unranked team (Texas A&M) is favored over a ranked team (#7 LSU). So, Jerry is 9-2 88% in this situation this season and note that the favorite is 7-0 SU and ATS in the last seven meetings and guess what...all seven wins were by the Tigers. But, this is a 'new' season at Texas A&M with Jimbo Fisher getting his first crack as an SEC school against the Bengals. Personally, I am not that impressed with LSU and can see the A&M No.2 defense against the run allowing just 80 yards per game shutting down the Tigers. Take the AGGIES!

Michigan at Ohio State 12:00 ET
Buckeyes (+) over Wolverines- This is so illogical that it can't be any other way. Ohio State may be 10-1 but the have had a mediocre season football quality wise. After an opening week loss the Notre Dame the Wolverines have reeled off 10 straight wins and for the most part in impressive performances. I could come up with some stuff like the 'Dog is 4-1 in the last five meetings which also means that Michigan is 4-1 last five because they have been the 'dog each time. Well, the rolls are reversed here and the pressure is on the Wolverines. What bothers me some is that I don't ever remember the Buckeyes being an underdog at home, like I said, the 'rolls are reversed.' Still, the points are a bonus and may become a factor as I expect the Buckeyes to move the ball better than the Blue Maze. Take THE OHIO STATE!

Huskies (+) over Cougars- I know, I understand and the Cougars are that good, I understand that the Huskies have been over-rated and underachieved (Except as 'our' Blowout GOY Winner 28-7 over BYU) all year long and are a miserable 2-9 ATS while Washington State is a most impressive 10-1 both SU and ATS and as heavy favorites in places. As school history goes it is and has been all Washington winning the last four and going 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings at Washington State. The Huskies do it again...take WASHINGTON!

Oklahoma at West Virginia 8:00 ET
Sooners over Mountaineers- Love the matchup as No. 13 West Virginia hosts No. 6 Oklahoma for a berth in the Big-12 Championship game. This could very well end up a shootout between a pair of premiere quarterbacks in college football. I have already stated that I believe the Sooners Kyle Murray is the most 'explosive' player in NCAA football and then West Virginia has Will Geir at QB who many feel will be the first pick in the draft. Grier has thrown for 3,325 yards and 33 touchdowns with eight interceptions while Murray has thrown for 3,310 yards 34 TD's and just sic ints along with 739 yards rushing for 10 touchdowns. Although the Sooners have won the last four meetings and 19 consecutive true road games, all said, the Mountaineers are off a lost at Oklahoma State and will rebound here for their first Big-12 win over the Sooners. Take WEST VIRGINIA!

Atlanta at New Orleans 8:20 ET
Falcons (+) over Saints- Oh man, this is one of those spots, you know the one where everyone gets 'smart' and takes the weaker team and gets crushed by the 'public' favorite. Since their opening game of the season New Orleans has been a point spread darling going 8-1 ATS and covering numbers in a huge way. The underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings but the Falcons are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. After the way the Saints took apart Philadelphia last week 48-7 and the way Atlanta blew its game to Dallas they have to move toward the center. Better from the Falcons and less from New Orleans. Take ATLANTA!

Kansas City at L.A. Rams 8:20 ET
Rams (-) over Chiefs- Now, this is expected to be the best game of the season as the L.A. Rams the NFL Super Bowl favorites host the AFC's most sensational offense owned by the Kansas City Chiefs. What I didn't expect was the 'public' and the 'wise guys' are both on the same side. And that's not all the majority of professional handicapping services are going on a limb with the Chiefs. It just looks to attractive being able to take points with Kansas City's offense. The adjustment to returning back to play in Los Angeles from Mexico City will be much easier for the Rams than the Chiefs who be will moving from Tee-Pee to Tee-Pee. Take LOS ANGELS RAMS!

Carolina at Detroit 1:00 ET
Lions (+) over Panthers- Very few of Bill Belichick's former coaches have been very successful and and Detroit's head coach Matt Patricia looks like another doomed coaches that is in over his head. The lions offense which was one of the best last season is now ranked 23rd while their defense against the Pass is among the worst in the league. Detroit has just four sacks in their current three game losing streak and hosts a Carolina squad that has doubts of their own. The Panthers off their Thursday night beating by Pittsburgh have shown weakness at the corners and that should be enough for Matt Stafford to expose. Take DETROIT!

Tampa Bay at New York Giants 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Giants- So, the Giants won a game and defeated the Mighty Forty-niners who were on the third string quarterback. Despite what you may think you saw last Monday night New York is a long way for being a competitive team in this league. The Giants have won twice on the road but are a dismal 0-4 SU and ATS at home losing by an average of 12 points per game. Tampa Bay started the season with a win over New Orleans (the Saints only loss) and have realized not matter what the score that Jamis Winston is no the answer and they will be going with Ryan Fitzpatrick who has plenty of experience at Met Life Stadium one of the toughest places to throw the football because of the crosswinds (Phil Simms made the adjustment). Fitzpatrick threw for over 400 yards again last week and will put up enough points against this imposter defense of New York. Take TAMPA BAY!

Pittsburgh at Jacksonville 1:00 ET
Jaguars (+) over Steelers- Granted, Pittsburgh with Ben Roethlisberger leading the way look unstoppable even without the moron Somebody Bell. The Steelers were 1-2-1 and were looking up at the entire division (even the Browns at the time) and have reeled off five straight wins and more importantly 'covers.' Jacksonville is just a shell of themselves without Leonard Fournette who returned to action after missing four games. In last year's playoff game 'Big Ben' threw for 469 yards and five TD passes in the Jaguars 45-42 playoff win as a 7-point dog at Pittsburgh. Jacksonville has lost their last five but with the return of Fournett will look to control the ball and eek out a win. Take JAGUARS!

Arizona opened the season a 11.5-point favorite against BYU and were trounced 28-23 in a game the wasn't that close. The Wildcats have won their last two and the last one was two weeks ago over Colorado 42-34 and they a win here or one in their final game against Arizona State. I have to like Arizona's chances here as the underdog is 10-4 ATS in the series. Take ARIZONA!

Boston College at Florida State 3:30 ET
Seminoles (+) over Eagles- in my 'Bubble has burst' category Boston College is the leader in the clubhouse. They had huge expectations (so did 'we') last Saturday night on National TV hosting Clemson. Well, they were dominated in a 27-7 drubbing by the Tigers as they lost their one-man offense in running back AJ Dillon hurting (he should be an NFL player) to an ankle injury. Meanwhile, the Seminoles have lost three straight and are 3-7 ATS on the season and coach Willie Taggert still doesn't have a clue. But, Florida has a history of pounding the Eagles and with this ridiculous 'number' it is more than likely State posts a win here. Take FLORIDA STATE!

Bruins (+) over Trojans- It hasn't been the best of season's for this pair of LA schools as USC is just 5-5 and 3-7 ATS while the Bruins are 2-8 and only 4-6 ATS. So disappointing has been the year for but these clubs this is the most combined losses they have ever had when meeting. USC leads the series 49-31-7 but are just 7-10 against UCLA in the Rose Bowl including 2-5 ATS in their last seven visits. I'm not so crazy the way this one sets up with the Trojans off a loss to Cal and UCLA beating ASU. Still I see the Bruins who have lost the last three meetings straight-up pull of a win as they have come on after a weak start. Take U.C.L.A.!

West Virginia has been nearly flawless only stubbing their toe at Iowa State and they are tied with Oklahoma who they play next week.

New York Giants at San Francisco 8:15 ET
49ers (-) over Giants- Two of the NFL's bottom feeders pair up in Santa Clara where they question is can anyone here play quarterback? The Giants of course are stuck with lead foot and slow moving Eli Manning who is on pace to set records in total sacks. San Francisco started the season with what they thought was their 'franchise' quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo and he went down with a season ending injury and C.J. Beathard came in and is now under concussion protocol. That brings us to Nick Mullens who got his chance and played to a 151.9 passer rating in his debut. Believe it or not the Niners are stronger and in a much better position then New York. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

New Orleans at Cincinnati 1:00
Bengals (+) over Saints- New Orleans has established themselves as the front runner in the NFL with their impressive win over the previously undefeated L.A. Rams. The Saints (7-1) have won seven in-a-row since an opening day loss to Tampa Bay and are averaging 35 points per game as Drew Brees leads the NFL in completion percentage (76.3) and passer rating (120.6). Cincinnati is off a bye week and will be without A.J. Green who leads the team in receptions and are 3-6-1 ATS with him in the lineup but will have workhorse Joe Mixon running the ball to keep them in the game. After such a huge win and the disappointment of the Dez Bryant injury I can see some letdown while the Bengals (5-3) who trail Pittsburgh (6-2-1) by a game for the division being very focused after a bye week. Take CINCINNATI!

Red Raiders (+) over Longhorns- Texas as my 'Free' release broke my heart last Saturday as West Virginia scored the 1-point game winner in the final moment. Texas Tech (+14) was 'our' Top-3 Vegas Hotline winner 46-51 over Oklahoma last week and are ready to win here against a dispirited Longhorns squad who have dominated the series 50-17 but Tech has won two-of-three although they haven't defeated Texas at home since 2008 with Michael Crabtree. The Red Raiders most likely will be without freshman quarterback Alan Bowman and he will be replaced by sophomore Jett Duffy who has game experience. The Longhorns who already are porous on defense lost three more starters last week against the Mountaineers. The 'line' gives this one away. Red Raiders are 5-0 ATS after a SU loss. Take TEXAS TECH!

Buffaloes (+) over Cougars- Colorado started the season 5-0 and was fantasizing about competing with the Pac-12 elite (If there are any) as they were 2-0 in conference defeating UCLA and ASU and then 'Oh Lordy' they played next four games and haven't won since. Washington State meanwhile, is 8-1 and has ripped off five straight winners and are 4-0 ATS on the road. Coach Mike Leach said of last weeks narrow 19-13 win over Cal is 'good for teams to play close games.' I hope so Mike because 'we' have the Buffaloes and the points. Colorado will have receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. returns after missing three games all losses and the Buffaloes are 5-1 when he plays. In a tough one take COLORADO!

Northwestern at Iowa 3:30 ET
Hawkeyes (-) over Wildcats- Okay here we go in Big Ten West Division action where the leader Northwestern (5-1) is a double-digit underdog the (3-3) Hawkeyes in Iowa City. This is because the odds-makers see the Wildcats a step or two below what is expected and their numbers reenforce that belief as they point differential in virtually even. Iowa on the other hand is a plus +12 on a neutral field. This is enhanced when one realizes the Wildcats are 3-0 SU on the road but the visitor is just 2-6 ATS in this series and the favorite is 6-1 ATS. Take IOWA!

Both teams are well coached, have talent and don't wilt under pressure. Jeff Tedford have the Bulldogs back on the level they held since the 90's when Jim Sweeney and then Pat Hill led the way. Fresno State comes to Albertsons Stadium winners of seven straight while the Broncos have won their last four after a 3-2 start. As much as I like the Bulldogs (and I do) and although they are 7-0 on the MWC road they have lost nine straight in Boise. This is the first time since 1999 at Boise State has been a home conference underdog. Bronco senior quarterback Brett Rypien has won 34 starts and he adds one more tonight. Take BOISE STATE!

Steelers (-) over Panthers- Three weeks ago the Panthers looked dead in the water as they trailed the Super Champions 17-0 in Philadelphia in the fourth quarter and some how managed to score three TD's for a 21-17 Vegas Hotline win. (Haven't had many of those in NFL lately) Well, since they have dominated Baltimore and Tampa Bay wining the last two at home and now take to the road where they are 1-2 SU and ATS. Although Ben Roethlisberger bitches about playing on Thursday's the Steelers are 3-0-1 ATS. Add that Pittsburgh is 5-0 SU last five and 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings. Carolina is tough against the run ranking 8th but it is the Steelers explosive passing attack that they will have to be concerned with. You should be concerned about Chip's Pac-12 Game of Year (7-0 100%) Saturday winner! Take the STEELERS!

Michigan they have reeled off five straight going 4-1 ATS. Toledo has had some prolific scoring games netting 66, 63, 52 , 51 1n3 45 in their five wins. But, the Rockets are going to have to man up to the level of competition here. The price seems a bit low to me but with the road team going 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings and with the Huskies 1-7 ATS at home against winning teams. Blast off with the ROCKETS and Chip's Pac-12 GOY (7-0 100% ) winner Saturday! Take TOLEDO!

Dallas like so many mediocre clubs plays well at home going 3-0 while being winless (0-4) on the road. The Cowboys like the Titans are off a bye week although they didn't have to travel overseas. Neither quarterback is any thing to write home about and both squads have fine defenses but thenTitans offense is one of the worst in the NFL while the Cowboys at least have Ezekiel Elliot.

Detroit is coming off a home loss to Seattle (28-14) while the Vikings lost at home to New Orleans 30-22 after having won three in-a-row. If Minnesota is going to have their way they will do it on the round were the Lions defense is the weakest. But, Matthew Stafford is capable of earning at least a part of that contact and deliver the goods here. Road team is 4-1 ATS in last five...take DETROIT!

Pittsburgh at Baltimore 1:00 ET
Ravens (-) over Steelers- I don't know what going to happen here but this contest caught my eye right of the bat. Not just believe its the Steelers and Ravens but because of the spot these two enter the battle. Pittsburgh has won three straight and at 4-2 lead the AFC North while Baltimore has dropped their last two and have fallen to 4-4. Just with records alone the Ravens are in desperate straits to win this game. Falling 3-game back in the loss column after your season mid-point spells problems for playoff hopes. Note, that Pittsburgh is 1-6-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Take BALTIMORE!

Tigers (+) over Gators- Florida is coming off a major letdown as their SEC chances are done. Meanwhile, Missouri is still searching for their first SEC win (0-4) and nothing less then a total offensive collapse in the 2nd half last week (zero 1st downs-8 straight 3-n-out)) against Kentucky kept them out of the win column. Tigers quarterback Drew Luck will play at the next level and I expect him to rally his offense this week with a great Gator challenge. Florida QB situation is one of inconsistency and turnovers. Look for the Tigers to notch their first SEC win...take MISSOURI!

The points are generous for a reason and maybe the Wolverine 'Revenge Tour' has something to do with it as they are avenging losses from last season, first to Wisconsin, then Michigan State and now for Penn State who crushed Michigan 42-13 last season.

These two clubs are a combined 2-13 with Oakland's 45-42 win in overtime against Cleveland and the Niners 30-27 win over Detroit. San Francisco has dropped their last six but have been competitive in most although 2-5 ATS while the Raiders are 1-6 ATS and haven't even been close. Oakland lost even more players this week as are willing to retire rather then play for this, the worst of NFL teams (Ck NY Giants). Niners CJ Beathard is questionable but it won't matter. Derek Carr is a turnover machine and will give the ball up enough for the Home team to shine. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Green Bay at L.A. Rams 4:25 ET
Rams (-) over Packers- This game has attracted plenty attention not only because it involves the best team in the league or the best quarterback on the field but because the 'line' is so high. I'm wondering if they are trying to tell us that the Rams are that good or Green Bay heading south. We should realize that both could be true and I do suspect that the Packers are on the down slide. Problems with Rogers are greater then 'they' are willing to admit as he appears at times to be hobbling. Green Bay have the best QB on the field but Los Angeles has the best running back with Todd Gurley leading the NFL with 686 yards on the ground and 14 touchdowns (Rogers only has 12 TD's). I think that the line is excessively high and that gives me thought that the oddsmakers are making it easy for 'us' to take the points. Well, not this time. Take the RAMS!

The Giants alone didn't make the playoffs after each of their four Super Bowl wins and the Eagles 'hangover' runs as deep. Okay, enough of these guys falling flat, how about the Jaguars play of late it has been a disgrace. These two met for the NFC title last season and it doesn't look that either of them will make it back to that level.

Oklahoma State has a high powered offense that averages nearly 40-points per contest and they have had two weeks as well to pine off their beating at Kansas State (maybe a look-ahead).

When are team, be it basketball, football or any sport for that matter has it's undefeated streak broken into the season that they struggle to recover emotionally before their next encounter. Therefore more often then not they don't make it especially as a favorite. All the trends say to fade the Bengals but I can't here. Take CINCINNATI!

New England at Chicago 1:00 ET
Bears (+) over Patriots- I love it, I love that way the Bears just folded in Miami in a game that they thought they had won. And that was the problem, once you start thinking about next weeks opponent (New England) you can never get it back. Chicago blew late to the Dolphins because the Patriots were creeping into their minds. (even if not, it could have happened) But, the point should be that the Pat's will have their full attention for a full sixty minutes. New England handed Kansas City their first loss last Sunday night scoring 43 points. Here's the rub, NE is just 3-9-1 ATS after scoring 40 or more points and I have more, The Bears are 10-3 straight-up and 11-2 ATS at home against AFC East off a win (Thank you ML-Playbook). Anyway you slice it the Bears are the 'play.' Take CHICAGO!

N.C. State at Clemson 3:30 ET
Tigers (-) over Wolfpack- Let me start by saying if I had not already posted my NCAA Blow-Out Game of the Year (Washington 28-7 winner) this would be it. Don't be sucked into taking an undefeated conference rival and all those points. It's a SUCKERS BET! Don't do it. The trends here will support the Wolfpack on numerous counts including they fact that they are 18-3 ATS in their last 21 games following a bye, that they are 5-1 ATS in their last six trips here, the dog is 6-2 ATS in the last eight and to cap it off Clemson is 0-4 ATS in their last four at home. Well, why then...I guess THEY'RE DUE! Take CLEMSON!

Cincinnati at Temple 12:00 ET
Owls (-) over Bearcats- Here we go again...Jerry called! He's right! Last week he called and pointed out unranked USC as a 7-point favorite over a #17 ranked Colorado and won easily. This week he called to remind me that ranked and unbeaten #21 Cincinnati (6-0) comes to Temple as an underdog to the Scarlet Knights (4-2). If you are looking for answers or a rational explanation as to how this or that is going to happen or why, for that matter it is going to happen. But, it should! Maybe, some people of 'influence' in the Philadelphia area want the Owls to shine or maybe there are conditions and circumstances surrounding this game that we never be privy to. By the way the longer the wait the better the 'price' will be! Take TEMPLE!

Jacksonville at Dallas 4:25 ET
Cowboys (+) over Jaguars- The Cowboys have been one of the least impressive teams on offense this season despite having the NFL's leading rusher in Ezekiel Elliott who has 480 ground yards. The obvious problem for Dallas in their quarterbacking and receiving. Dak Prescott has been exposed with his inaccurate throws and must keep drives alive with his legs. Jacksonville has QB issues of their own with Blake Bortles inconsistent play. With Leonard Fournette out once again the Dallas defense (one of the better ones) can stifle the Jaguars offense. Take DALLAS!

Colorado at Southern California 10:30 ET
Trojans (-) over Rockies- My good friend Jerry called to let me know that is a game that fits a certain criteria I have about ranked teams being favored against unranked teams. What we have here is an undefeated 5-0 #18 Colorado club that is visiting USC who they have never beaten 0-12. The Buffaloes are off a bye week and have had two weeks to gloat and pat each other on the back. This week they are up against a Trojan team that was off to a slow start and has began to put it together winning their last two conference games and are ready here. Add that Colorado is 1-6 ATS after a bye. Take SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!

Central Florida at Memphis 3:30 ET
Tigers (+) over Knights- Do any of you guys remember last years shoot-out as Central Florida won and covered as the home favorite (-6.5) 62-55. Well, Scott Frost (0-5 at Nebraska) is gone and nothing has changed for the Knights as they are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS laying an average 26 points per game. Memphis is averaging over 46 points and is led by Brady White who is at 69.2 completions along with Darrell Henderson leads the ACC in rushing and averages 11.8 points per game. The home team is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 and the Knights are 1-4 ATS in their last five at Memphis. Take the TIGERS!

Nebraska at Northwestern 12:00 ET
Cornhuskers (-) over Wildcats- Okay what's going on here. The opening line on this matchup was Northwestern -9 and in one swoop the number dropped to 3.5 and that is mostly due fact (I believe) that the Cornhuskers (0-5) are ready to win. Nebraska has been able to move the ball of late gaining over 500 yards in each of their last two contests (first time since 2007 that they had back-to-back 500 yards on offense. Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez accounted for 441 total yards setting a freshman school record against Wisconsin and will lead this team to their first win of the season. Take NEBRASKA!

Texas Tech at Texas Christian 7:30 ET
Horned Frogs (-) over Red Raiders- From what I've seen of these two clubs these 'price' is way high in my minds eye. Texas Tech is averaging 48.4 points per game and yet have a pair of losses to West Virginia and Mississippi (?). TCU is also 3-2 but has been totally unimpressive to date going 2-3 ATS with losses to Ohio State and Texas. The Red Raiders are 5-0 ATS in their last five games after a bye week and the Frogs are 0-4 ATS in their last four conference games. Trends all one sided and yet the line invites Tech action. No for me...take TEXAS CHRISTIAN!

L.A. Rams at Seattle 4:25 ET
Seahawks (+) over Rams- I don't know how I can even think of taking this 'side' as I believe the Seahawks are on the downslide while we all realize the Rams are the team to beat. Los Angeles is undefeated 4-0 and 3-1 ATS and have the betting darling from the get-go leading the NFL in scoring averaging 35-points per game. Seattle has put wins together over powerhouses Dallas and Arizona and is just 1-2-1 ATS but have allowed just 30 points in last two contests. Checking past history the Rams are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Seattle although they are just 1-6-1 ATS at home against teams with winning records. Still, somehow...take SEAHAWKS!

Tennessee at Buffalo 1:00 ET
Bills (+) over Titans- Okay, now that the 'public' has jumped on the Tennessee bandwagon it is time to tip the cart. After an opening week loss at Miami the Titans have won three streak including their win over the Super Bowl Champs Philadelphia last week and they come into the Bills den and the are angry. Buffalo has shutout 22-0 ay Green Bay and was humiliated in the process. This remember was a playoff team a season ago and pounded the Vikings three weeks ago. Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss. Take them here...take the BILLS!

Baltimore at Cleveland 1:00 ET
Browns (+) over Ravens- From what I've seen on the field Baltimore has been the most consistent and more professional in their approach to games and play. Cleveland is way improved on the field but still has the same personal running the show and he just doesn't know how to win! This has been a one-sided series with the Ravens winning 18 of the last 20 including 5-0 SU/ATS in the last five meetings, but with new quarterbacking behind No. 1 draft pick Baker Mayfield (the new Brett Favre) the Browns believe that they can turn the tide. Browns might surprise here as they have nothing but this game to look forward to. Take CLEVELAND!

No. 24 Virginia Tech who opened the season with a dominating win over Florida state only to be upset by 27-point underdog Old Dominion as the lost their starting quarterback Josh Jackson. The Irish have made a change of their own at QB but voluntarily inserted in Ian Book place of Brandon Wimbush and Book has responded with 74.3% completions while throwing for 525 yards. The Hokies once again see this as an opportunity to crack the Top-10 and move up in the nation scene. Take VIRGINIA TECH!

Utah State at Brigham Young 9:00 ET
Aggies (+) over Cougars- Okay, Kenny this one is yours! But, I'm on board 100%. When the season opened the Vegas odds-makers had little regard for BYU making them a 10-point dog at Arizona (Wildcats are terrible) and then a 23-point underdog at Wisconsin, but two road upset wins have changed their impression. Now, after losing in 'our' Blow-out' GOY (they were on the short end 35-7 to Washington) they come up a meager favorite at home against an intra-state rival. Utah State ( 3-1, 4-0 ATS) who has been a doormat for the most part as far as college football is concerned is averaging 51.5 points a game and is 4-1 ATS in their last five trips the BYU. Note this is a state rival and the underdog is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings. Take UTAH STATE!

Broncos (+) over Chiefs- Yep, what more can I or anyone say about Pat MaHomes! Kansas City has jumped out to a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS scoring 38-42-38 with Mahomes throwing for 10 TD's with no interceptions. Denver opened 2-0 with west coast wins over Oakland and Seattle but took it on the chin 27-14 back east at Baltimore. Now, the Broncos are on familiar grounds where the decibel level is a loud a any NFL stadium but, the Chiefs are 5-0 SU and ATS in the last five meetings and seem invincible right now. But, this is a tough spot for a division team on the road on Monday Night with all the attention of the football world on them. I have got to have...DENVER!
|09-30-18||Bucs +3 v. Bears||Top||10-48||Loss||-103||23 h 24 m||Show|
Tampa Bay at Chicago 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Bears- I understand the impact of the Bears defense and their power running game but they still have a major weakness and that is their quarterback play. The Chicago offense is limited because of the things Mitchell Trubisky can't do. Tampa Bay on the other hand most likely will go with their veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with Jamis Winston in the wings. The games has before an air war and here the Bears are out-armed. Buccaneers have thrown for 1,202 yards while Chicago has managed just 534 yards through the air. Chicago has won their last two but the Bucs are 5-0 ATS in their last five against the NFC. Take TAMPA BAY!

Brigham Young at Washington 8:30 ET
Huskies (-) over Cougars- Whoa...whoa! What's is this 'number' supposed to be? A pair of 3-1 clubs with mirror image ATS record with BYU 3-1 and Washington 1-3 ATS. This match-up makes me sweat as I hate to lay points like this but there are too many positive factors to ignore. The bad stuff is BYU is 5-0 ATS in their last five road games and the Huskies are 0-4 in their last four non-conference games. Okay, that's out of the way and I don't care about it because this 'number' is so outrageous it takes precedence over everything. The Cougars have posted impressive wins over Arizona 28-23, Wisconsin 24-21 and last week 30-3 over McNeese State. And that's what going to hurt them. Washington had a toughie last week against Arizona State winning 27-20 but have won three straight since Auburn and are gaining momentum. I don't expect this price to rise but to drop. The fact that this is the FOX-TV game rises my expectations. Take WASHINGTON!

New England at Detroit 8:20 ET
Lions (+) over Patriots- You don't have to check this out but I believe that the former Bill Belichik coaches struggle when put up against their mentor. So, from what I have seen out of first coach Hank Patricia's work I question weather he will make it as a head coach. I sort of feel that the only way for the Lions to win is for Belichick to give Patrica his game plan. Although New England has problems of their own, Brady not-withstanding. The Lions showed plenty of life in the second half against the Niners and came close to winning but earned a 'back-door' cover. More of the same tonight...Take DETROIT!

Green Bay at Washington 1:00 ET
Redskins (+) over Packers- I've been right twice with and against the Redskins and I really like the my side here today. Green Bay was a huge money-maker for the Books last week as the Vikings were driven to the favorite by public and wise guy action both. Of course the Packers have the current Superman in Rogers at quarterback but Washington has veterans of their win that can cut the mustard and Alex Smith is just 20 shy of Rogers total and will be primed to atone for last weeks home loss. The host team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings. Take WASHINGTON!

Ducks (+) over Cardinal- Man, where's Chip Kelly when you need him...(getting killed at UCLA). Oregon was a Pac-12 power under Kelly getting the Championship game before falling to Auburn and Cam Newtown, anyway after pounding three nobodies scoring 155 points while going 3-0. Stanford will have the return of running back Bryce Love the Heisman candidate who missed the thriller against UC Davis (30-10). Ducks have scored 43 points per game the 18 contests and are looking to avenge last years 49-7 loss at Stanford. Take OREGON!

Michigan State at Indiana 7:30 ET
Hoosiers (+) over Spartans- This could have been at match-up of unbeaten's if the Spartans hadn't just totally fell apart in the fourth quarter two weeks ago at Arizona State blowing a late 13-3 lead. Indiana is 3-0 SU, 1-2 ATS having struggled against the number covering as a favorite for the first time last time out against Ball State. Last season the Hoosiers snatched defeat in the jaws of victory at Michigan in their 19-7 loss and look to atone against a Michigan State team that may not be as strong as predicted. The home team is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. Take INDIANA!

Texas Christian at Texas 4:30 ET
Longhorns (+) over Horned Frogs- After cashing in with both these clubs last Saturday I still see a winner between them Saturday afternoon. Texas worn down the youthful USC squad in the second half and won 37-14 in a crushing win that coach Tom Herman said was much needed to understand the energy needed to win. TCU gave 'us' a major effort and could have actually defeated Ohio State if not for two late INT's. There is no doubt in my head who the better team is as TCU has won the last four meetings by and average of 30 points. But, the Frogs are off an emotion home loss to the Buckeyes and may be a little 'down.' In a surprise take...TEXAS!

New York Jets at Cleveland 8:20 ET
Jets over Browns- Okay, here we go! Here we have a team that has won once in their last 35 tries (0-1-1) and they are favored against the 1-1 New York Jets. Many were hoping (especially the NFL Network) that the two No.1 picks Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield would have a shootout here but the overall No. 1 pick for the Browns will be taking a seat for veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor who is at just 53% completions while the rookie for the Jets is at 66%. I just don't respect the idea that a winless team (into their third season) is favored and the 'public' is all over them. Take the NEW YORK J-E-T-S!
|09-16-18||Chiefs v. Steelers -4.5||Top||42-37||Loss||-125||20 h 47 m||Show|
Kansas City at Pittsburgh 1:00 ET
Steelers (-) over Chiefs- I don't quite understand why the rush to pay against the Steelers. Could be the response of then tie against Cleveland or many be more the absence of 'what's his name.' interceptions and six overall turnovers are the explanation. Pittsburgh has a 14-point lead in the fourth but gave up the ball and came away with the tie, and they will be more then ready against the Chiefs this week. But, ha here comes the Chiefs on the warpath with fearless leader Pat Mahomes who threw for four TD's last week. In a matter of performances the Steelers out-gained the Browns by 155 yards while Kansas City although a winner were out-gained by 180 yards. LAY IT...PITTSBURGH!

Arizona State at San Diego State 10:30 ET Aztecs (+) over Sun Devils- Do Sun Devils come out at night...not this week! There are some many reasons to be 'against' Arizona State (Herm Edwards aside). Rocky Long's San Diego State squad is a little banged-up but he always manages to have his troops ready when playing against the PAC-12 where he is 5-1-1 ATS as a home dog. Note, that ASU is 1-5 ATS in their last six against the Mountain West and worst then that for them they fall into a 8-27 ATS go 'against' trend being 2-0 SU and favored on the road in Game 3. Take SAN DIEGO STATE!
|09-15-18||Houston v. Texas Tech +2||Top||49-63||Win||100||22 h 57 m||Show|
Houston at Texas Tech 4:15 ET Red Raiders (+) over Cougars- Both clubs will look to run you to death and I don't mean with a ground game I mean with the pace of play. Houston has posted 45 points in each of their wins over Rice and Arizona while Texas Tech scored 77 against under-manned Lamar after opening with a loss to Mississippi 47-27. The Cougars prefer natural grass as they are 0-8 ATS in last eight on Field Turf but will have junior QB D'Eriq King who has 10 TD in two games. The Red Raiders will counter with their two-headed QB attack and a better defense. Take TEXAS TECH!
|09-15-18||LSU v. Auburn -10||Top||22-21||Loss||-115||21 h 25 m||Show|
Louisiana State at Auburn 3:30 ET Home Team Tigers (-) over Visiting Tigers- There isn't one person that I've met that doesn't think this line is out of whack. They all insist the proper line would have Auburn a 3-4 point favorite and that is why this game caught my attention. Here we have LSU pummeling Miami on National TV and then shutting out SE Louisiana 31-0 now a virtual 10-point underdog against a team rated at their level. In head-to-head action the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and LSU in 0-4 ATS in their last four visits to Jordan-Hare Stadium. I expect Auburn t get off to a quick start and then apply pressure as the game continues as they have allowed just three first quarter touchdowns in the last 21 games. A heavy load to bare but I have to LAY-IT and you should too. Take AUBURN!
|09-15-18||Hawaii v. Army -6||Top||21-28||Win||100||89 h 34 m||Show|
Hawaii at Army Sat Noon ET Cadets (-) over Rainbows- I can't emphasize how ridiculous this game looks 'to me' after sharing with you the 'set-up' here. Here's how it starts, Hawaii comes East 3-0 averaging 49-points per contest and defeated the Navy in Hawaii as a 10-point dog 59-41. So, we know when Army and Navy are to be rated in the last three decades that you would start with Navy as a 10-point favorite and then work form there. Now, this may be a part of National Pride with the understanding that there is a rivalry between the Cadets and Middies but in essence the Rainbows have beaten 'one of our own'. For the Army to open as a 7-point favorite if a farce after what Hawaii has done. 'It Don't Make Sense'...Take ARMY!

L.A. Rams at Oakland 10:20 ET
Raiders (+) over Rams- Okay, the John Gruden Raiders Edition II starts tonight and this time it is supposed to be a 10-year rein. Of course the big stink in Oakland is that the Raiders allowed Khalil Mack to escape to Chicago for a pair of No. 1 picks that won't be able to help until they are in Las Vegas. Los Angeles signed their huge defensive holdout as Aaron Donald came to terms and returns to the club that won their division last season for the first time since 2003. The Raiders had a disappointing season last year falling to 6-10 as injuries took their toll. This time around Oakland surprises the Rams. Take the RAIDERS!

Dallas at Carolina 4:25 ET
Cowboys (+)over Panthers- It is sort of hard to remember the Cowboys were 13-3 in 2016 after what has happening to their 'playing' personnel since that time. Gone are Dez Bryant and Jason Witten some of their stronger offensive line a man and along with long time and veteran place kicker Dan Bailey. What remains is still worth mentioning as Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, linebacker Sean Lee and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. The Cowboys has defeated Carolina five straight until their last meeting three years ago but Dallas is looking to bounce back from what both Elliott and Prescott admit were disappointing performances. Boy's shock the 'public' with a WIN here. Take DALLAS!

Michigan State at Arizona State 7:45 ET Spartans (-) over Sun Devils- Wow, what an adjustment the odds makers have done concerning Arizona State as they for the most part just totally disregard them after the hiring of Herm Edwards. They set the win total for the Sun Devils at 4.5 and that is real ranking them amount the lowest of major schools. ASU under Edwards pummeled Texas San Antonio 49-7 and really flexed their muscles to the point the odds makes moved this number down 2-points before it hit the board. Michigan stated who hands their hat on their defense surrendered 344 yards to Utah State and escaped with a 38-31 victory. I just really like this spot. Take SPARTANS!

USC at Stanford 8:30 ET
Trojans (+) over Cardinals- These two rivals started the season in fine fashion playing close with their opponents for the first half before pulling away down the stretch. USC (-24) handled a 'game' UNLV squad 43-21 leading 19-14 heading into the final period before outscoring the Rebels 24-7 but not an ATS winner. Stanford like the Trojans started slowly and lead 9-7 at the half before running away from San Diego State cruising in the second half 22-3. Southern Cal holds a 62-32-3 series advantage winning last season 31-28 as a 3.5-point favorite. This time the 'cover' as the road 'Dog'. Take SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!
