11/2 VIP Picks

The NBA, the only league a team can beat an opponent by 32 points and then lose to them straight up 6 days later. Absolute bullshit and that cost us our double dip. The NHL teams who have been averaging 8+ goals per game only generated 3 last night. Don’t blame me, blame them. COLLEGE FOOTBALL SATURDAY, NEED IT!

Florida (+190) - At first glance, Georgia has the better numbers in this matchup - averaging 36 points per game on offense to Florida’s 32.5 and 10.6 points per game on defense to Florida’s 15.8. But that should be expected if you look at the strength of schedules. The only ranked team UGA has played was Notre Dame. Ok. Florida beat a #7 Auburn team by two scores and battled into the 4th quarter against the now #1 team in the country (LSU). With some different play calling in that one things could look a lot different now but here we are. Georgia lost to South Carolina a few weeks ago when SC focused on stopping the run and forced Georgia to beat them through the air. Look for the Gators to replicate that game plan today. The Gators defensive front will get a boost from returning D Ends Jabari Zuniga and Jonathan Greenard. Jake Fromm threw 3 interceptions in that loss against South Carolina and came back the following week to go 9 for 12 for just 35 yards. I wouldn’t say he is confident going into the matchup against DBU who hasn’t allowed a QB to throw for 300+ this season and ranks #6 in takeaways this season. Florida backup QB Kyle Trask has thrown for 1,391 yards, 14 touchdowns, and just 4 picks this season. He was also poised throughout most of that battle against LSU which makes me think he will deliver on the big stage today. He has one of the deepest receiving corps at his finger tips. The Gators will also get playmaker Kadarius Toney back today and all I have to say about that is TONEY’S HOME! I think the Gators will force multiple turnovers in this game and they will take advantage of that. That will be the difference in this game today and +190 is a gift! GO GATA 🐊

TCU / Oklahoma State Over (59) - I love some Big 12 overs and this one is looking like a good one today. 8 of the last 10 combined games for these two teams have gone over 59 and some of them have gone WAY over 59 like 80 and 79. TCU comes in averaging 34.3 points per game on offense and OK State comes in averaging 37.5 points per game on offense. Both of these teams want to play at a fast pace and that’s exactly what we need today. I also like the fact that both of these defenses have shown the capability to get torched - OK ST gave up 45 to Baylor and TCU gave up 49 to Iowa State. One thing to note is that OK ST will be without their best receiver Tylan Wallace after suffering a torn ACL in practice this week but I’m confident in the other guys to step it up. Both teams have dominant running attacks and that should open up some plays down the field. 30 a side seems likely since they have averaged that all year. Over!

Utah (-3) - Utah will be on the road taking on Washington today and their 1 loss of the season did come on the road but I like the line it has presented us with in this game today. It all starts on the defensive side of the ball for the Utes who have held their opponents to 10.3 points per game this season. It won’t be easy for Washington to get the run or pass going against this Utah defense that has held opponents to 174.6 passing yards and 56.4 rushing yards per game. The Washington defense isn’t as good as they were a season ago. They have allowed 147.6 rushing yards per game this season so look for Utah RB Zack Moss to have an absolute field day. He’s averaging 6.6 yards per carry this season and the Utes are 12-3 over the last three seasons in games that he runs for 100+ yards. I like Utah’s defense and I think they will be able to control this game with Zack Moss today. Give me the -3!

Bruins (-1.5) - The Bruins have put together a four game winning streak and they have covered the puck line -1.5 in all of those wins. They have actually covered -1.5 in their last 6 wins and come in 9-1-2. The Senators are 0-4 on the road this season and they have lost 5 of their last 7. I’ll take the Bruins to cover -1.5 at home on a Saturday night. Bsssssss!
