    I will track everybodies plays, so please make sure you post a line.

    Also, I don't mind if you post parlays, teasers, or round robins, but I won't be keeping track of those plays.

    Somebody likes the Big 10. Where did you get that Iowa line Sen? Misprint? Love the Yanks tomorrow. Good luck on all (except Wisky and Ohio St).

    Sides Only Saturday

    The day I, and many of you, have been waiting on for eight months is finally here. Despite the anticipation over the college football scene, there is some baseball we like today also. Baseball sides continue to be hot (3-0, +7.00*) but totals have cooled off (1-2, -3.50*). We didnít really study totals, because they require more in-depth analysis, and we wanted to focus more on football today.

    Baseball Overall (68-40-1, +59.38*)

    Baseball Sides (39-25, +40.53*)

    3* Cardinals (Carpenter) @ Astros (Clemens) -102
    Cardinals now 41-9 after a loss, and Carpenter has given up 1 run in 24 innings against Astros this year. Would be huge play if not for Clemens incredible season.

    2* Yankees (Small) @ Aís (Saarloos) -107
    Only game this series the pitching matchup is not in Aís favor, and we canít imagine the Yankees getting swept.

    2* Brewers (Obermueller) vs. Padres (Williams) +115
    We canít reasonably pass on the Brewers as a home dog against a pitcher as bad as Williams.

    2* LAD (Houlton) @ Rockies (BH Kim) +115
    Houlton has been hot, and Kim is a minor league pitcher.

    1* Mets (Benson) @ Marlins (Beckett) +153
    Weíve made a lot of money fading Beckett, the most overvalued pitcher in baseball.

    1* Nationals (Patterson) vs. Phillies (Brito) -143
    Nats best pitcher in a virtual must-win game.

    1* Indians (Millwood) @ Twins (Santana) +160
    We think the Indians matchup with Santana better than Twins anemic offense matches up with Millwood. Plus, Indians are starting to believe they can not only make playoffs, but win division. Canít pass up this price.


    Baseball Totals (29-15-1, +18.85*)
    Pass

    Saturday Football

    Just for the purposes of keeping all our plays in one place, I am re-posting our football under each day's best bets thread this week. If you want the write-ups, go to the thread titled Razz's NCAA Football, Week 1.

    NCAA Football Overall (0-0-0)
    NCAAF Sides (0-0-0)

    5* Bowling Green +2.5 @ Wisconsin
    4* Georgia -8.5 vs. Boise St
    4* Georgia Tech +7.5 @ Auburn (-105)
    3* Texas -39.5 vs. UL Lafayette
    3* Miami (OH) +14.5 @ Ohio St.
    2* Texas A&M -1.5 @ Clemson
    2* Colorado St. +7 @ Colorado
    2* UCLA -9 @ SD St
    2* Air Force +3 vs. Washington
    1* Illinois +1.5 vs. Rutgers
    1* Iowa -38.5 vs. Ball St

    NCAAF Totals (0-0-0)
    2* GT @ Auburn Under 38.0

    Also, if you are going to play Syracuse, which is our other large play, I strongly suggest you go ahead and do it. The line is climbing, and will probably get to at least 3 before game time.

    I want to echo newb's post about the great job you guys do with this forum. I would like to make the suggestion that during football season, you open the best bets threads for Saturday and Sunday on Tuesday or Wednesday, just so we can avoid line movement against us. If not, that's OK too, I can just post our plays like this week. Thanks again, Illusion and others.

    I have no problem doing that at all Razz. I will start the best bets thread for the weekend on Tuesday. Great suggestion and thanks again to all of you that have made SBR forum your home.

    OWNED, I'm not counting round robins, teasesrs, and parlays in the standings. I don't mind if you post them, they just won't reflect in the standings.

    Okay, but I treat them as regular plays when I parlay favorites in tennis, like my Grosjean x Ginepri wager for tonight.

    No reason not to love the Big 10 today! That conference is always underrated in football and overrated in basketball! The Big 10 went 4-1 for me today and yesterday with a backdoor cover against Michigan the only thing keeping me from 5-0!

    I second the thanks. I've been viewing this site for a few weeks and it's been great. There is a wealth of knowledge here. I came across the site when searching the web for some review on sport wagering sites.

    Had a great Saturday thanks to Razz. Thanks again.
