The play is Rutgers and if you don't have a dime to play, find one. Buffalo
has been outscored in its first two games by a total of 69-0. Sounds like a lot
of sucking. They also have a handful of players out on academic suspension or
injuries. Remember the money I made you last week on playing against the 118th
ranked team in Division 1-A? This Bills squad is ranked last, yep, 119th. I
normally don't advocate stealing money from babies, but this week is different.
The game gets a five star lock approval as the goose egg continues for the
Bills. Rutgers 34 Buffalo 0.
Leans are all over the place in Pac-10 play this week. The following are games that I feel really good about, but I just can't quite pull the trigger.
- Oregon State +14 at Louisville. This Beaver team is growing up
fast and if all the chips fall their way this weekend we could be talking
about a Top 25 team next week. I've watched Louisville play and I think they
are a bit overrated. The media is probably getting in their head also.
- Fresno State +2.5 at Oregon. I love the Fresnecks straight up on
the moneyline. This is the best team in the WAC and they have weapons on
both sides of the ball. The kids from Eugene haven't impressed me yet and I
feel they are in over their heads in this one. Next week will even be uglier
when USC comes into town, but I digress.
- Purdue -7.5 at Arizona. Take the Boilermakers in this one just
because Stoops will probably do something stupid again.
- Idaho +14 at UW. The Vandals may lose but the Huskies aren't 14 points better than anyone. The Huskies won't win a game this year, and you can quote me on that.
For good laughs make sure to watch College Game Day on ESPN every Saturday
morning. Lee Corso and his continuous shenanigans are flat out hilarious while
the intelligence and game breakdowns by Kirk Hirbstreet are second to none.
That's all I got for this week. If you have any locks for next week email me and give your reasons for the pick. I will take the best lock with the most thorough evaluation/rationalization and print it with credit to you.
Good luck with your picks everyone and if ever in doubt talk to the wiseguys. They're everywhere! Bleed it!
