    Oregon will run it with their talented true freshman power back all half and ASU is missing three of their starting D linemen including their top 2

    What are your options?

    So the u31 is probably a good bet.

    I think the 2nd half over has a chance to cover.

    whittling down my plays. will probably add a couple if both books i know need a play pretty badly. for right now:

    clemson
    FSU
    ND Under
    Cal
     
  18. TexasPickEm

    TexasPickEm BOOM MOTHERF*CKER!

    Not really sure what happened with that non-safety at the end of the game, but it was the difference between a win and a push. I hit in the SF/Sea under 37.5, but got burned on ASU.

    I'm liking the Aggies and Va Tech in the early games tomorrow, and I'll post an updated sheet tomorrow morning. Here's a link to the blog, I think some of y'all would enjoy my write-ups.

    Only two ive locked in are Ok State -14 and Toledo +7.5.

    Very happy I got Toledo plus the hook early as its now down to 5.

    Going to wait on BYU and hope it hits 14 tomorrow since I bet the public moves it there by kickoff. Still looking at others.

    I waffle so bad from tuesday-friday. Finally finalized my official plays. probably will coattail a few from random boards as well as my bookies that tell me what their big needs are. As far as personal shit: (copy pasta with writeups I do for another site for year long plays. 14-5 ytd)

    ND-BYU Under 41.5

    Bought 1.5 points just because I like having 41 on my side. I think there is no need for it, but I don't mind a little security juice. Neither Offense is anything special here. And both Ds are pretty stout, although BYU has faced shit-tier competition compared to ND, and OSU hung 42 on them last week. I don't think ND offense is capable of putting up 42 on their own, but I'm not seeing BYU score any TDs. Maybe a couple of FGs but their FG kicker has been garbage in games I watched

    Tennessee TT Under 17.5

    Since Saban has been there, even counting that shit team he inherited in 2007 that lost to ULM and MSU, Tennessee has never scored more than 17 against him. 17 exactly in 2007 which was Saban coaching a bunch of garbage, probation players. Since getting a full year of coaching his players, Tennessee has scored a whopping 2 TDs in the last 4 meetings combined. This game sets up a matchup that a secondary D coach like Saban is licking his chops for. Bray will get eaten alive and probably look a lot like he did in the 2H of the UF game. Home field really counts for not shit in this one as the 3rd saturday in october has become some kind of joke other than the rocky block game.

    Miami TT Under 18

    Was torn between taking FSU -21 or Miami TT Under. I decided to take FSU's jeckle and hyde offense out of the equation. Never know when the Noles are gonna Jimbo one up out there. That defense is stout though. Only given up 17+ once and that was pretty much 1 half against Clemson where Dabo threw every trick play in the book at them. Conversely in the 3 games Miami has played against actual D1 defenses, they have scored: 13, 3 and 14. I don't think Miami will be able to sustain a drive in this game.

    3-Game 10pt Teaser: (last time I did one of these I got mad I should have parlayed instead)

    Clemson +2.5 / South Carolina +13.5 / EMAW +12.5

    I do like all three of these to cover straight up without the points. I just don't like putting 6 plays out. Clemson should be able to light up VT's defense, but Clemson's D you really have no idea what they are going to do for you. I'd rather not lay more than a TD there but could see them blowing the doors off VT.

    Gamecocks are a feisty little team. Shaw is a player other than what 1 brain fart against LSU. Lattimore is strong and his hip is supposed to be fine. Just your standard SEC October bruises. That Defense won't let a team run away with a game.

    EMAW is EMAW. Love Snyder. Love Klein. Injuries to WV Corner and a couple in the front 7 if what I read was true. Few extra freshmen on the field tomorrow on defense. Think Snyder can play some ball control and keep this game very close or maybe a replay of the TTech game last week.

    Yea I forgot a grabbed the under in the BYU/ND game as well on Wednesday.

    FWIW, a really sharp guy I follow on twitter took it for 2x because he has an in with the BYU coaches and got their gameplan for Saturday - basically saying that BYU is going to eat a ton of clock by running it and throwing screens and play very conservative because they are confident they can stop a very weak ND offense and that it will be a chess match.

    He has been very good with his info for Utah teams (lives there) and he broke that Riley Nelson was injured a few weeks ago before anyone else did.

    I think they will score 21. Even Illinois scored 24 points on them.

    The defenses they have played in Scoring Defense are

    Bowling Green - 29th
    LSU - 8th
    Wyoming - 97th (Scored 37 points)
    North Carolina - 21st
    New Mexico State - 102nd
    Texas State - 86th

    Offenses La Techs has played

    Houston - 48th (Gave Up 49 Points)
    Rice - 65th (Gave Up 37 Points)
    Illinois - 116th (Gave Up 24 Points)
    Virginia - 92nd (Gave Up 38 Points)
    UNLV - 76th (Gave Up 31 Points)
    Texas A&M - 5th (Gave Up 59 Points)

    Plus I also think La Tech will score 60 points.
