I posted a 3-3 mark last week and being average, or being able to say I did not lose, does no good here.  Again, my rule is you want to be at least two games over .500 each week.  It’s been three weeks since I was two games over 500.  For the season my overall record now stands at 36-28-2.    Here are this week’s plays. 


College plays

Utah minus -5 OVER UCLA:  I just like the Utes.  UCLA is once again more hype than anything else.  I believe the more physical Utes will be able to handle the Bruins by more than five.

Kentucky minus 3 ½ OVER Ole Miss:  Ole Miss has given up more 300 yard rushing performances than any other SEC Team the past two seasons.  Seven times in their past 13 SEC Games the Rebels have allowed 300 rushing yards or more.  Go Big Blue!

Mississippi State minus -28 OVER UMASS:  Ok I rarely lay this many points, but UMASS is terrible and the Bulldogs can light up the scoreboard. 


NFL Moves

Kansas City PK OVER Dallas:  Simply put I feel confident in going with the Chiefs to beat the Silver Stars.

New Orleans minus -7 OVER Tampa Bay:  The Bucs should score some points but I’m learning towards a game like 28-20 in favor of the Saints.

Carolina minus -1 OVER Atlanta:  This is basically picking the winner and I’ll take the Cats at home over the Dirty Birds.
