College Football Preview: Gambling

Just a quick post here regarding everyone's favorite topic...betting on football.

I've fielded about 20 phone calls from over the past few months asking if I would be betting with them again this year. I hung up on them the first 19 times but kindly told them during call 20 that, yes, I would be back AND TO STOP FUCKING CALLING ME.

So I'm going to load up my account today and am looking for some action. I haven't bet spreads in awhile so any help would be greatly appreciated. It's always tricky to bet week one games, but here are a few that I like:

Oregon +6 at Boise St. (think the Ducks win outright in a revenge game)
Navy +22 at Ohio State (Tress won't run it up on these guys and will play conservative)
Kentucky -14.5 vs. My RedHawks (which I would never bet, but love the line for UK)

Any help? Thoughts? Old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

Oregon getting 6 is a great bet- but I see the line has gone down to 3. Not quite as great.

UC Davis is a 21.5 dog to Fresno St. in Fresno... funny that both of our alma maters will probably get trucked opening weekend.

What's the line of the Florida / Charleston Southern game? 70 points or something? How often do teams actually reach 70 points, not to mention win by that margin? I think that's easy money.

Stanford only giving 17 to Washington St. seems to be an attractive choice. That will be my first bet of the season. Picking against WSU is never a bad idea.

Kentucky seems to be a lock as well.

Nate- usually If the spread is going to be that high they won't let you bet on it.

I would take Oregon and Ohio state. Tressel may not want to run up the score, but I would expect at least a 35-7 score. You can check out my gambling expertise on aces history.

I like Okie State -5.5 vs. Georgia.

By the way, Dut and GSaul, I will be over tonight for cards. Might be more toward 8 than 7:30, but I will be there.

I think it is time to bring my expertise, and the vegas special, over to the money shot. I like Miami getting 6.5 against fsu.

By the way, my "tit-posting" this week has been outstanding. Just wait until tomorrow.

I agree. Unbelievably outstanding. I could look at this post all day.
