Another bad week last week!  I posted a 4-4 mark and being average in this line of work is losing!  That is terrible.  After a few good weeks the inconsistent picks have come far too often than not.  But is shall not give up!  For the season my overall record now stands at 33-25-2.    Here are this week’s plays. 


College plays

Texas A&M plus 1 ½ OVER Mississippi State: A classic sucker looking bet here as I scratch my head to why the Aggies are a home dog to the Bulldogs.  A win here by A&M really gets coach Sumlin more off the hot seat.  Go Aggies! 

USC minus -3 OVER Arizona State:  Yes I know that the Sun Devils beat a much better team at home a few weeks ago but the Trojans are a much more desperate team.  A loss here would make USC one of the worst pre-season Top 4 Teams in the history of the AP.  Please believe it! 

Michigan State minus – 1 ½ OVER Northwestern: Sparty is a quiet 6-1 and very much alive in the Big Ten Title chase.  I don’t see this team looking ahead to next week’s home date against Penn State.  I’ll take the Spartans on the road this weekend.


NFL Moves

New York Jets PLUS 7 OVER Atlanta:  The Planes of New York are 4-2-1 versus the spread including 3-0 at home vs the spread.  I’ll take the home dogs here. 

Carolina plus 2 ½ OVER Tampa Bay:  I think the Panthers Defense alone will rise up and give the Bucs fits.  Carolina can’t lose three straight can they? 

OVER 48 ½ in Los Angeles Chargers vs New England Patriots Game:  QB’s Brady and Rivers are too good not to light up each of the others defense for 21 each.  So that’s 41 and then hope for a little more and then we go over 48 ½ right?
