Yours truly now has a bankroll of $10,610 and is 6-6 on the year. Bleeda's prophetic picks this week are brought to you by Stone Brewing Company. A cold IPA at 12:30 a.m. is giving me the synergy to make you a winner this weekend.
There are some interesting factoids to ponder as we enter week four. Five teams are 3-0 against the spread so far. And it ain't no surprise that these teams can ball. They are LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Boston College, and Missouri. Meanwhile nine teams are underachieving and looking like buckets of manure. They include Virginia Tech, Minnesota Mississippi, Navy, SMU, Notre Dame (surprise, surprise), Syracuse, Toledo, and Western Michigan .
Last tidbit, Washington State is 3-0 on the OVER. That's what you get when you combine an explosive passing attack and a pathetic defense.
This week we have some nice "big chalk" plays of the week in Oregon and California . Easy money action with Idaho, sleeper big dog East Carolina, "we have arrived" Washington, and Big 10 home favorite Wisconsin . The big board is shaping up very nicely this week.
Time to break it down!
Stanford at #13 Oregon -17. Dammit Janet! It really hurts me when I say this, but Oregon might actually be pretty darn doggone good. When is the big fade going to start? Not this Saturday.
The Zeros beat up the Cardinals last year and they will repeat the feat
this year. Four of a Kind beats a pair of threes. These Cards will lose hard.
$1100 to win $1000.
Arizona at #6 California -16. This the other big chalker of the week dat Bleeda likes. Revenge game and ‘Zona is a mess now. Both teams are undisciplined, but one of them has a better coach, home field advantage, and a #6 ranking.
Stoops will have a hoarse voice by halftime. Forget about it Wildcats! You
shouldn't even bother showing up because you'll be getting your milk money and
coat stolen from you. $1100 to win $1000.
Washington -6.5 at UCLA. People in Seattle think Jake Locker is the best thing since sliced bread. Well, maybe he is. Bruins laid a turd last week and were pummeled by Utah . Ty has the Huskies playing some good football and he will expose the pretty boyz of L.A. Tempted to take this game on the moneyline at +230 ($2.30 paid on the $1), but will just take the points. $550 to win $500.
Did you know moment - A gargoyle is a fearsome figure carved from stone
that has powers to ward off evil spirits. Will the Beavers use the power of the
gargoyle this weekend and ward off the evil spirit of Dennis Erickson? Stay
tuned to your radio to find out.
Beer: Nothing but barley, hops, water, and yeast. BLEED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
