    don't like fading the system on consecutive plays but I hate the NCST play and going with MSU.

    Love Louisville tonight though

    louisville was +3. now -3.5 after QB transfer news

    the baylor result gives me some pause. baylor announces a ton of injuries, line moves a TD, some buyback on baylor before gametime...baylor covers.

    the line movement is nearly identical. and it's not like allen or murray were playing lights out before the news hit. the movement seems like a big overreaction, esp considering hubenak played during the season and has had several weeks of prep. huge game for sumlin.

    i didn't make a bet personally.

    I've watched Louisville several times and they are a shitty football team. Idc who A&M has at quarterback.

    Haven't made a bet yet some maybe someone can possibly save me from making a mistake: what's the suspension / injury situation for louisville defense. one site said 2 LBs are suspended?

    I'm mostly looking at UL secondary being pretty good against ATM passing game. And ATM's defense is not good. They held some bad offenses + LSU to low scores

    And Petrino with some time to gameplan is usually a good result

    As someone said earlier, no idea what Memphis was doing. Down 2 scores in the 4th I think they ran the ball on close to 10 straight plays........but you're supposed to have the #1 NFL prospect under center?

    Thought is its a shitty situation for FSU. Don't gain anything with a win. Maguire has looked pedestrian against good defenses. Good thing though is the weakness of Houston is its pass defense. Houston played 5 bowl teams to end the season and allowed over 11 passing yards per attempt in each game. Do we see the Maguire that lit up Syracuse's piss poor passing defense? Honestly don't know. The sheet is split and so is my head so I'm going to hold off on this one. If anything I would lean on the over.

    I thought that Lynch was injured or something. There's no way that what we saw yesterday is the #1 qb prospect.

    Had aTm money line last night, but placed a live bet as well and won that. Split them and still came out ahead a few bucks.

    Leaning OU today, likely Bama as well. Going to think on it a bit.

    my biggest bets of the bowl season were MSU -5 and Houston +7. glad to hit MSU yesterday.

    numbers and intangibles are solidly with Houston. i wouldn't be shocked if FSU covers just because the big guy overpowers the little guy. but UH has played and had success against solid defenses (temple/louisville/vanderbilt). i have fsu winning 31-27.

    Plus, not sure how a bet can be your biggest bet of the bowl season yet you wouldnt be surprised if you lose it. Doesnt sound like it should be your biggest bet.

    The lines are set up at a pretty good value today for a 10pt teaser so I pulled the trigger....

    Clemson +14½
    Alabama pk
    Houston/Florida State o46½

    Out of those three, I can really see MSU fucking me and pulling off a shocker.

    Probably means OU will blow out Clemson then.

    do you win every bet you make? of course i wouldn't be surprised if i lost a bet.

    i made them my strongest bets because i felt like both games had strong intangibles leaning one way, as well as the numbers.

    bama seems like the right side tonight. same teams...bigger, faster, deeper roster. i feel like bama wears them down.

    i feel like everyone is on oklahoma. but it also feels like the right side. oklahoma just been fire lately.
