    Well I did Great yesterday! with Utah st(I have to admit that I really wanted to pick Utah but I never figured out at that moment that the girl who was taking my bets picked Utah st), South Carolina and North Texas. I have a Big chance to win around 5K this Saturday riskin no more than $70 but just if Texas(-41), Notre Dame(-13.5), Stanford (-16.5) and UAB(-5) cover their respective Spreads.. also if Alabama/VTech stay under 38.5 and I also complement this parlays with Mizz + 7 and the Over on that same game + No Illinois +17. I lost some parlays due to Oregon but it's OK, It was the first week and I new that was gonna happen(I just don't wanted to fade on the top pick of the great cappers).. Boise st. at home are very tough rival. They are an awesome team but I'm starting to think that the blue field where they play has a lot to be with this..

    Great day PH, nice start to the season! I was leaning North Texas myself, but didn't anticipate that they'd have THAT strong of a game! Let's keep that positive energy rolling into tomorrow

    Thanks bud, BOL to you man...

    hey I though they we're gonna stay close but I never though they were actually going to win.. rasssss man!! look, I cannot say that north Texas is a great team to beth in but what seems to be real is that ball st have a sucker team this year and they'll get blowed out many times..

    ****ing Texas! I hope they cover on Saturday.. and BAMA/VTech stays under.. I have those picks in all the rest of my parlays..

    Took a glance at the lines just now, very very happy with myself!

    Since I do my vids Wednesday and make it a point to use the current line when I do the vid, some of these lines had already moved against me from when I like them on Monday. But if I still take them on Wednesday it means I'm okay with the line I'm getting, obviously. Quick glance at my 7 plays this week;

    Team Spread I Played / Current Spread (Difference)

    Oregon +3.5 / +3.0 (+0.5)
    Penn State -26.5 / -29.5 (+3.0)
    UAB -5.5 / -6.0 (+0.5)
    Illinois -6.5 / -6.5 (0.0)
    California -21.0 / -21.0 (0.0)
    Stanford -16.5 / -17.0 (+0.5)
    UCLA-SDS Under 51.5 / 47.5 (+4.0)

    So Penn State gets outscored 7-0 in the 2nd half, and on the last drive of the game drive down to the Akron 12 and then decide not to punch it in.

    Yep, college football is back.

    It's the JoePa curse. Anytime Penn State is favored by more than 2 points you need to take in the fact that the towel boy will be playing at sometime during the second half.

    Last year they were 7-3-1 ATS and dropped 45 on Oregon State, 55 on Cuse, and 45 on Temple to start the season off. 31 today?

    Really no reason that even Penn State's 2nd team shouldn't have been able to muster up a field goal against Akron in 30 minutes of play.

    I watched the game, and really Penn State didn't play that well in my opinion considering the opponent. I can't believe that they didn't get another score in the second half either, because even though it was 31-0 at the half, the nifty lions didn't look that crisp. I thought they wouldn't have shut it down in the second half. Then again last year's scores were total unlike the Joe Pa led teams of the past.

    I don't mind the Illini loss... sometimes you are just flat out wrong, and this was definitely one of those times.

    Just hoping UAB can hang on to give me my first win of the season!

    I'm regretting Oregon and Illinois... felt both games had an edge, but not as big as my other five plays.

    Oh well, good reminder. Hopefully I can squeak out three wins so this week isn't a total disaster. Love the rest of my card. Congrats on the hit Mike!

    BTW, I'm not really rooting against you, because I have plays in all of the games you have, and some of the same plays. I'm just laughing at how mad you get when you aren't even betting money on these.

    You are going to pretend like I started this? That was after months upon months upon months of you being a complete asshole.

    Can we please just fvcking stop this? Honestly?

    I took the video down. Honestly didn't realize you were so sensitive about it. When I asked if it was cool if I did a video impression of you, you said yeah, just don't mention my personal info. If you were sensitive about your fvcking eyes, why didn't you mention that too?

    I mean call me a fat f\*\*k all you want, but rubbing losses in on people? Come on.

    Onthewhat: what is your problem with VD?

    He doesn't claim to be some big winner or great handicapper, he lists his records. He's a nice guy, knows his football, and puts some effort into it. Get over it.

    Go after that cocky **** crazylou

    I'm trying to help him, durito. He is betting 10% of his bankroll on NFL sides because he thinks he can hit 60%, but he won't listen to me. Maybe he will listen to your advice...

    If I deposit the 500 and instead only bet $10 a game, or don't bet at all, does that mean you will leave me alone? I will 100% listen to your advice and do this if it means we can just move on from this constant nagging.

    Thanks onner, nice call on UK today

    The usual 5-10 NCAAF plays, will do all the NFL games like usual and highlight the philosophy picks, probably with a video on the philo picks.

    Good luck next week!
