    College upsets - who falls?

    Not the close ones like LSU, Indiana, Mich St. Va Tech, etc

    How about Louisiana Lafayette +9?
    Opening week has been terrible for Texas. they were blown out by an avg Maryland team 2 years in a row until they smartened up and scheduled UTEP.

    Top that? How about a San Jose St +15 ???
    That's a pretty good football team. USC has the weapons/speed. But SJS is physical. Their 250lb RB is a wrecking ball.

    Believe it or not it looks like Fl St will give Notre Dame all it can handle getting +7.5.
    Let's just keep it simple and say ND is replacing everybody. LY against FSU, ND was #5 and ran off left tackle for a gazzilion yards. FST threw a late INT on their own 3 and the score ended 42-26.


    Here's 2 min vid recap on last year's match up

    ESPN NCAAF analyst Tom Luginbill likes SJSU against USC. He was talking about how SJSU has the upper edge on the defensive line against USC O-Line.

    SJU is no joke. Strong, good coaching, packed with multi year starters. What they lack is speed. SJU bettors have to sweat the short pass that ends up an 80 yd TD. If USC covers it will be because SJU can't cover the receivers, TE's and backs.

    Flip side of that is this is no preseason walk in the park game for USC. If they come out a bit out of sync it's a good possibility SJ can keep them there.

    I like LaTech to possibly upset MSU. A lot of their kids have played against the Mississippi state kids. A lot of experience on both teams are returning. MSU has the better overall players but LaTech is no push over. A lot of kids that couldn't qualify academically are on that team.

    Here's some other games that pop out to me that could be possible upsets. I think 2 or 3 of these teams will win outright.

    Texas State +14 over Baylor
    Arizona +12 over BYU
    Utah St +17 over Washington St
    Central Mich +14.5 over Mizzou
    Miami Ohio +22.5 over Cinci
    Minny +14 over OSU
    South Florida +18.5 over NC State

    I wouldn't be so sure. OSU clearly has the better overall talent but they are breaking in a new QB and replacing a lot of guys on both sides of the ball. Minny's defense is pretty solid and they have a veteran Oline. I see this game as being extremely close dog fight to be honest.

    There are some real match ups for the 1st week. Big 10 has some real test in conference and out early.

    I watched the Spring game for the Buckeyes. The QB's didn't look good. They have all the talent in the world at WR. The RB and QB are a tick off from what Old School Buckeye fans are used to fielding. The D is good. We got a frosh forget his name. We will know it by season's end. He was a beast in the Spring game. Wouldn't lay 14.

    San Jose State +14 is a good wager against a USC team with a head coach who knows that a loss against any teams except @Notre Dame, @Arizona State or in Las Vegas against Oregon or Washington will cost him his job. They may try to run the clock out as much as possible to obtain wins.

    Minnesota should keep their game against Ohio State close, for 3 quarters or so. Then Ohio State Pulls away. A lot of people are wagering the way that all LOSERS wager. They jump on the dogs and the points. Mac, I will tell you what I will do. Just for bragging rights, I will fade EVERY single one of those 7 games that you picked the dogs to cover. I think that no more than 3 will cover. I also think that no more than 3 are worth a wager.

    Avg ML odds on those 7 would be 5-1. Get one to win, almost broke even. Two and could be a big night.

    I like most of them. Not sure about Tx St or Minny beating OSU. Love Arizona as much as one can anyway.

    I got Charl at +7. This is like a carbon copy of USC vs SJU. IF Charl can handle the speed and not give up TD's via the short pass on 3rd and 16's they could win this game. Doesn't it seem speed kills dog bettors?

    But no is the answer to your question. +7 is a game on. Should be at least 9 but I like your pick.

    Huh? You don't think 3 of those teams will cover the spread? I'll bet you 100 points that at least 3 of them cover. Let's go.

    They're a dead dog now...

    I took a small live bet on UAB in the 1st quarter (-17.5). This looked like a total mismatch from the first few minutes. Wish I would have bet the house now.
    Anyone know what was the opening line?

    I got the Corndog kids in that one laying the points. ECU is really unpredictable. They can score 50 or 0.

    You are correct that line looks fishy. Didn't the starting QB for Illinois get injured last week?

    The backup QB looked better than the starter. That line does smell like shit.

    Treyvon Henderson is the #1 RB recruit in the nation and Miyan Williams is a physical runner that Clemson could not tackle last year.
    OSU has the best Oline in the country and Minnesota's defense was one of the worst in the B1G last year.
    Taking Minny is a hope you can get a late back door cover in this game.

    That Charlotte TD dive in the last 3 mins was epic. 92 yards. What a big win for an up and coming team.

    I wish I had something on Georgia v Clemson.

    Looks dead even to me so I'll take the +3. Georgia reaLLLLy needs to come out of this gm with a W.
