Just a week ago, everything was going well on the betting front. 21-9 overall in the colleges. Then came last Saturday, when I went 0-6. Hey, but I'm still 21-15, so that isn't so bad, right?
Purdue (+2) Minnesota
Kansas (-1) Texas Tech
N.C. State (+12) Maryland
Virgina Tech (+5.5) Florida St.
Colorado (+24.5) Missouri
4-star Tennesse (+7) Alabama
I've lost a lot of games on the Boilers this season, but I just don't believe in the Gophers. The Red Raiders have played no one and this week the Jayhawks change their path. Maryland will be flat. I love Beamer versus Bowden getting points. I will take the Buffs getting over 24. In my SEC game of the year, I will take talent getting points at home, even though it might be the biggest coaching mismatch of the week. I am actually going with Fullmer versus Saban and making it a 4-star game. Stupid like a Fox.
Philly (-8.5) Atlanta
New England (-7) St. Louis
(3 star) Buffalo (-1.5) Miami
(3 star) San Diego (-3) New Orleans
I was a respectable 2-2 in the NFL last week. I like the Jim Johnson blitz package against a rookie QB, so take the Eagles to cover. The Patriots are bound for a letdown, but I think the Rams will have a bigger one. The Bills were my surprise team at the beginning of the year and I will ride them in Miami. The Chargers are a much better team than they have shown, while New Orleans is starting to crack, as injuries and a lack of a solid defense is starting to overcome even Drew Brees' efforts.
