Is there any reason I should avoid Oregon state +6 @ BYU. (both teams are missing QB's)?


Nelson's backup is actually better than him. We know nothing about OSU's back and Riley's offense is fricking complicated. I would put no money on this game.

My sister goes to TTU. I've watched more than a handful of their games in the past few years and I dont' think they are any good.


That being said the have upset someone the past 4-5 years consecutive. They missed their chance to upset OU(who did already have a loss) and UT already has a loss. That leaves Kstate and WVU as their teams to upset.

I'm not saying there is an upset ( I took WVU 3*) but I am just pointing out their history a little.

5-7 Syracuse beat basically this exact same WV team 49-23 last year at home. Were they very good? I have had more success betting on situations than matchups in my betting career. I'm not saying Tech is a lock, I mean anything can happen but I feel like I have a great read on this game. Good luck. Somebody's gotta win.

Late to the party, WV -4.5 @ TT - half my mf'in bankroll. Tech is garbage, back to back road games for WV or not they will roll

To be clear, Riley Nelson is starting. Taysom Hill has been playing and is now out for the season for BYU.

The more I think about this game I think I'm gonna play the Texas Tech 1h line. West Virginia has let lesser teams hang with them for a half and they are sure to be jet lagged after traveling all these miles back to back weeks. The game obviously has the signs of a trap game and so many times I've seen the favorite pull away late in the fourth in these situations because the lines makers didn't give the dog enough points. I think Tech will definitely still be in this one at the half.

Anyone liking duke +10 vs VT? I think VT chokes this one away.


Duke may win the game outright.

And even if they don't, Duke has shown that they have the ability to move the ball. I think they can score on VT, and keep the game close.

I was really surprised when I saw this line come out. I had it at VT-6.5

Does anyone see Tenn vs. Miss St a 31-27 game? Total is 57.5. That seems like a lot of points for an SEC game. Maybe just seems that way since I'm an LSU fan. I kind of like the under.


Tennessee can score.

Fade the pub. Biggest trap game of the week. WVU's 2nd long road trip in two weeks. That is brutal for college kids. Absolutely no defense for WVU. It is not very wise to lay points on the road when a team has no D. Tough home field adv for TTech with homecoming week and all. OU had a bye to prepare for Tech so I'm not looking into that game all that much. Looking like RLM in this one and just a perfect situational play for Tech.


I agree that WVU/TTU has that "trap game" feel. I think WVU is the better team by far, but this might be one I lay off.

It's not like they are taking a bus. It's a plane ride. Oh how tough they can't play football after that!?

Tech doesn't have a d either. Just don't see tech being able to stop WV. WV will stop tech a couple times

Games I'm going to look at more:

UAB +14.5
Fresno St +7.5
Bama -21.5 (if it drops to 21)
Tennessee +3
ULM -24
LA Tech +8
Kent St -1.5


UAB is probably my second favorite underdog game after Duke.

I think the Fresno / Boise line is about right

I like Bama even at -21.5

I like Tennessee, but I don't bet on them because I can't stay objective.

I like ULM, but I fear the line may move in the next day or two and my bookie won't let me put in plays until thursday morning.

I may lay off the LaTech / TAMU game. I just don't know what to think about it. I like both teams.

I like Kent State. I think the line is already up to 2.5

What are your rationales for these two games?

From what I've seen of the two, Nelson is better than Hill.

I also agree with the trap game feel. I think the public pounds WVU later in the week. Will wait and see where this line moves and possibly take Tech right before game.

leaning

107 Western Kentucky -2.5
178 LSU -2.5
153 Kansas State -6.5
175 Tennessee U +3

What do y'all think about Kentucky at Arkansas -17
