3-0! 3-0! 3-0! 1, 2 3-0!!!!! JACKHAMMER HITS! LIFE IS GOOD AND IT IS SATURDAY! What a night last night sweeping the board and hitting the JACKHAMMER! All three plays should never have been in doubt but the Yankees had to make it interesting by blowing a 6-0 and 9-4 lead. Thanks to Aaron Judge, they came through and still covered the run line. We were banking on the Yanks scoring a lot of runs and that’s exactly what they did. Let’s see what we have today to keep this fire burning - GET THE GAS OUT AND GET THE FUCKING JACKHAMMER OUT AGAIN!
Straight “against the spread”
UGA (-15) - This spread almost seems a little odd to me but it’s too good to not take. I feel like it should be more than -15. Georgia isn’t the SEC team that refers to themselves as rolling but that’s exactly what they have done in their first three games this season - 45-0 win, 41-17 win, and 49-7 win. We have bet on the Dawgs the last two weeks and they have been good to us. Missouri also comes into this one 3-0 with wins over UT Martin (sucks!), Wyoming (sucks!), and Purdue (sucks!). The thing that really sticks out to me is that Mizz only beat Purdue by a field goal last week. Purdue is so far from this Georgia team in all aspects of the game. I like the Dawgs today. When these two teams squared off last year, Georgia won 53-28. The Mizz passing attack has been great so far this season and they are averaging just under 400 passing yards per game. However, this Dawgs defense should slow them down significantly because UGA is only allowing 157 passing yards per game. The Dawgs D ranks #1 in the Nation limiting opposing QBs to 7.39 yards per completion. As for the Georgia offense, they should absolutely light it up today. Purdue QB David Blough threw for 572 yards and three touchdowns on this Mizz defense last week. EA Sports doesn’t make NCAAF games anymore but UGA QB Jake Fromm should put up video game type numbers against this Mizz defense today. I’m taking the Dawgs to dominate and cover the -15 today. Early kickoff NOON EST!
Oklahoma / Army Over (59.5) - Do the math, what do we need in this one? BOOM 30 a side so how are we going to get there. Let me start by raving about how much I love this Oklahoma offense this year. They have scored 63, 49, and 37 so far this year so it’s not out of the question for them to cover the over themselves! Maybe it is, this Army defense is better than the defenses that they have seen this year. I still like Oklahoma to score in the 40s in this game so that means 20 points from the Golden Knights and we are golden. Army has scored 20+ points in two of their three games this season. The Oklahoma defense wasn’t great last week where it seemed like they couldn’t get a stop even though they were still able to win by 10 against Iowa State, they didn’t cover the spread. I think Oklahoma will score early and often and Army should be able to put up points based on how many possessions they will get. I got the over in this one. I don’t usually predict exact scores but give me 45-24 in this one - OVERRRRRRRR.
TCU (-3) - Here’s one that I would like a lot more if TCU wasn’t coming off of a loss to Ohio State in a primetime game. Losses like that can really take a toll on a team. However, I think the public will be all over the Longhorns dick today because they beat up on USC last week and everyone thinks that Longhorn football is back. I don’t think so. I think TCU is going to be able to control this game as much as they would like to with the running game. This TCU rushing attack averaged about 6 yards per carry last week against that Ohio State defense. Texas has allowed their opponents to get 109 rushing yards per game this season but TCU is averaging DOUBLE that (225). Look for the Horned Frogs to establish the run early against this Texas defense. The ability to control a football game with the run is HUGE, especially on the road. Yeah, this TCU defense allowed 40 points to Ohio State last week but it’s fucking Ohio State. This defense is better than that and I am expecting them to play similar to how they did in weeks 1 and 2. I don’t expect a blowout but I expect TCU to cover -3.
Stanford (-2.5) - Primetime Saturday Night Game baby! Bryce Love is going to be fine, his back is fine, and he is going to play in this game. He took last week off because he didn’t need to play for the Cardinals to win that game. He will be needed tonight and he will be up for the challenge. He ran all over this Oregon defense last year for 147 yards in a 49-7 win. Yeah, Stanford won this game last year 49-7 and the spread is -2.5 tonight. Home field advantage is worth 40 points? Naw, you? Oregon has cruised this season in three straight games but they haven’t played anyone who was a challenge for them. Get ready for the challenge tonight because it’s coming. How good has this Stanford defense looked so far this season? 10, 3 (to USC), and 10. Pretty fucking impressive. I think this line is a bluff by the bookmakers and I don’t think this game is going to be close. Stanford wins this one BIG.
Teasers: play in groups of 2-3.
Boston College (-1)
Notre Dame (-1)
Army / Oklahoma Over (53.5)
Mississippi State (-3.5)
Mariners / Rangers Over (10) - When these two teams have played in Texas this season, the games have gone over. Check out these scores - 9-7, 7-4, 11-4, and 11-7. It was 8-3 last night and they called the game after 7 innings. It also helps that both lineups have hit the opposing starting pitchers pretty hard too. The Rangers lineup comes in with a .353 avg is 68 at bats against Marco Gonzales. The Mariners come in with a .306 avg in 108 at bats against Minor. I don’t see how this game doesn’t go over today.
Cubs (Lester) (-200) - JACKHAMMER - Big moneyline on this one but it’s worth it. The Cubs lost big yesterday so they are due for a bounce back game. Jon Lester will start for the Cubs tonight against the cross town rival White Sox who he has had success against in the past. He has held this White Sox lineup to a .230 avg in 61 at bats. The Cubs need wins to close out the NL Central so they will be motivated. The White Sox on the other hand really don’t have anything to play for at this one.
Lucas Giolito will start for them and he has lost his last four starts (3 of them by 2 runs or more). I like the Cubs tonight.
