    With the season only a month away, I thought I’d start the 2019 thread.
    I’m a small fish, but went 9-2 last season and profited $1.5k.

    Some early Week 1 lines I like:
    Florida -7.5 vs. Miami
    Georgia -20 at Vanderbilt
    Alabama -31.5 vs. Duke

    Anyone buy any preseason preview type things to get information ?

    The Phil Steele magazine has some good information, but he’s become too buddy-buddy with most coaches and pumps more sunshine than others. I think the best way to find accurate information is searching for the local beat reporters and finding their season preview. Steele will say a team lost its three best receivers, but the local writer will tell you why and who’ll replace them. I know it’s not a one-stop shop, but it’s worth digging on some teams for Week 1.

    Makes sense. Yeah I’ve noticed Steele will pick a couple rogue teams each year and hype the crap out of them (what he’s doing with Nebraska this year).

    I’ll start pursuing twitter soon.

    Not anymore. The best time for futures was early June before the lines moved. I don’t think the current numbers stand out. Clemson over 11 was the easiest pick, but it’s moved to 11.5 now.

    Yeah agree. It’s always tough, if you wait you can miss out on good totals, but run the risk of injuries etc

    For actual picks no, but I usually listen to the Action Network podcast and that Stanford Steve and Bear podcast. Then look at the S&P ratings. Kind of just combine all that with my own “gut” and hope for the best.

    Normally some real solid guys on madjackssports forum. IIRC the guys I typically look at are Jord and WildBill but they play a lot of games so it’s more of just seeing it one/both agree or disagree if I’m not entirely sold on a pick but want action. Few other guys on there I’ve interacted with over the years are good and more selective but nobody is hitting crazy numbers.

    I don’t know shit but probably parlaying Florida ML and the under tomorrow. That under has gotten really low though. I feel like 2 good defenses and shit offenses. Florida has more talent.

    Miami is starting a true freshman at left tackle and has six freshmen in the two-deep rotation to protect a redshirt freshman quarterback. Points are going to be rare.

    Took Miami -7.5. Was very sketched out first quarter.

    Florida did everything they could to make this work.

    Not to brag but my power ratings had it as UF -4 on a neutral site.

    thoughts on Okie St OU versus Oregon St - AT Oregon State?

    O/U stands at 72 - would think the under here with a good OkSt team traveling without a defined QB

    I don’t know enough about either team, but 72 is a lot of points for Week 1 when defenses are usually a bit ahead of offenses.

    I pretty much only bet CFB, occasionally NFL, and March Madness. I like the weekly rhythms, of CFB and injury reports, etc. Much easier to keep track of. Glad to be back. Trying to be better about tracking my record but all I know is I'm up in general. After each season I've been able to remove money from my account and reset back to my beginning bankroll.

    I'm on GT +37 and BYU +6.5 tonight.
