9/29 VIP Picks



1-2 and the Memphis loss stings a bit. Colorado played out as expected so it wasn’t a total loss on the night but a losing night overall. We need a HUGE day today! Also - I’m here to do anything I can to make things better for you guys. One VIP member mentioned it would be nice to get the picks automatically emailed to them everyday. So, if that’s something you guys are interested in just send me a message that you want to be added to the VIP mailing list. I will be getting that set up to launch on Monday. Now let’s get on to our HUGE Saturday.

NCAAF:

Straight “against the spread” / Over unders

West Virginia / Texas Tech Over (73) - Country roooooad take me homeee to a place, I belongggg WEST VIRGINIA! I won’t be taking WVU in this one but I am all over the OVER in this one. Both of these offenses have been great so far this season. Texas Tech has scored 41, 63, and 77. West Virginia has scored 35, 40, and 52. There is literally a chance that there will be over 100 points scored in this game today. I know, that’s crazy but it’s a reality. Texas Tech defense ranks 106th in the country allowing 437 yards per game and that number will go up today because WVU is the best offense that they have seen this season. WVU defense has been good this year but they haven’t played against very good offenses. Texas Tech will be their biggest challenge of the year. I see both sides scoring in the 40s or 50s in this game. We only need 36.5 a side. OVER!

Georgia / Tennessee Over (55) - Ok, here we go in a game that should be a blowout but I’m expecting a lot of scoring. Georgia is averaging 44.5 points per game this season and they shouldn’t have any problem scoring that or even more today. This Tennessee defense allowed 47 points to Florida last week and 40 points to West Virginia in week 1. The Georgia offense is better than both of them so I honestly think Georgia will make a push to cover this over themselves. On the flip side, I have the Georgia defense in my recent memory from last week when they gave up 29 points to Missouri. I really think if Tennessee can score two touchdowns, just two! We will hit this over no problem. Final score Georgia 52 Tennessee 17. Over!

Ohio State (-3.5) - College Gameday game of the week and the Penn State students have been camping out all week for this one. I hope they had a good experience all week because the fun will be over once this game starts. The spread is -3 and everyone thinks this is going to be such a great game but I have Ohio State winning this one without much of a struggle. Penn State is ranked #9 in the country coming into this game but who the hell have they played? Appalachain State, Pittsburgh, Kent State, Illinois? Lol. Ohio State would have man handled those teams too if they got to play them. The thing about Ohio State is that they have already went on the road against a top 10 opponent on Saturday Night Primetime this season and they won by double digits - 40-28 against TCU. Penn State’s defense that everyone is raving about will have a big challenge slowing down this Buckeye offense. I don’t see them slowing down Ohio State and I think this Penn State offense will struggle against the Ohio State defense and it will be a little different than facing Kent State. Give me the Buckeyes to cover in this one.

Kentucky (+1.5) - “They are a basketball school” that’s what people say about them but they have been playing some really good football this year. They come into this one 4-0 with two wins against top 25 opponents (Florida & Mississippi State). Both of them were convincing wins at that. South Carolina comes in 2-1 and their one loss was to one of the best teams in the country (Georgia). The Kentucky defense has played a big part in their success this season and they are giving up an average of 13.3 points a game. Pretty solid. Kentucky runningback Benny Snell Jr. should have a field day against his Gamecocks defense that ranks 75th in the country against the run. That should allow Kentucky to control this game and they have the home field advantage and they are going for their first 5-0 start since 1984. I’ll take a shot of bourbon and I’ll take the Wild Cats to win this game.

Teasers: play in groups of two:

Georgia / Tennessee Over (49)

Texas (-2)

Stanford (+11)

LSU (-4)

Baylor / Oklahoma Over (62.5)

Moneyline parlay:

LSU ML / Michigan ML / Texas ML (-108) - Three teams who I don’t see losing today and that gets us just under even money payout.

MLB:

SURPRISE!! We have ourselves a baseball play today only because a situation has arised that makes this a must play. On Thursday, it looked as if the Dodgers would get in but over the past few days, they haven’t locked their playoff spot. If they lose tonight and tomorrow night and the Cardinals win both nights then it would be a play in to the play in game between these two. MLB wants and needs the Los Angeles Dodgers in the playoffs. If they win today, they clinch. Dodgers will win today and they will clinch. Clayton Kershaw is pitching for the Dodgers and he has held this Giants lineup to a .164 avg in 318 at bats. Derek Rodriguez will pitch for the Giants and he hasn’t pitched against the Dodgers this year but he has lost 7 of his last 8 games. Dodgers run line -1.5.
