I can barely believe that this is true but the biggest game of the entire season takes place tomorrow night in ACC Country as #5 Florida State takes on #3 Clemson. This should be an incredible game. While no one will ever be as exciting as global hero, Johnny Football, Famous Jameis and The Rise of Tajh Boyd are damn close. The winner of this game is almost certainly a lock to play for the title…if they avoid stepping on their dicks the rest of the way (which is probably unlikely considering their histories of choking). The line right now is Florida State -3 which seems insane to me. I am not recommending this as one of my picks, but I like The Fighting Jeffs to hold serve at home. The rest of my picks:
Louisville -12.5 vs. UCF – This game is tonight. After last week’s average showing on national TV against Rutgers, I would expect a much more impressive performance against a solid Golden Knight team.
Akron -7.5 @ Miami – I will be at this game. So will Terry Bowden. I apologize profusely for advising you all to bet on us last week. NEVER AGAIN.
Northern Illinois -16 @ Central Michigan – The Huskies survived against the Zips last week while the Chips somehow won down in Athens. Thanks for making this line a touchdown closer than it should be!
Notre Dame -3 vs. USC – I’m no Irish fan but even I know that they are more than a field goal better than Ed Orgeron.
Oregon State -11 @ California – This is my lock of the week. Cal sucks.
MAC Glory Hole of the Week (back to .500 at 3-3)…Ball State -19 @ Western Michigan – Western Michigan gets drilled by everyone. BSU won at Virginia by 20 so I’m pretty sure that they can do the same thing in Kalamazoo. What about the pro game?
San Diego -9 @ Jacksonville – The Jags covered last week and there is no way that they can do it two weeks in a row. Plus, this Chargers team is starting to grow on me. I’m not worried about the short week and traveling across the country.
New England -4 @ New York Jets – The Jets already played the Pats close once this year. It won’t happen again.
Kansas City -7 vs. Houston – The Texans are 0-6 ATS this year. This is easy money. Let's see what Mr. Ace and his FOOLPROOF SYSTEM have in store for us this week...
1-1 last week. FAU fucked me out a nice moneyline by losing as time expired and the Packers fucked me out of a cover by giving up a 4th and 21!!! 6-8 on the year...FUCK YOU CAKES
NCAA: UCLA +6. I think UCLA is the real deal. They are 5-0 ATS. They have Oregon next week, so they NEED this one. Stanford has been showing some flaws the last two weeks.
NFL: KC -6. Houston is a dumpster fire. They don't know who their starting QB is (UPDATE: CASE KEENUM!!!). And no matter who it is they are turnover prone. KC can get after the QB with 4, is leading the league in sacks and INT's. This is just a horrible matchup for Houston.
Moneyline: UCLA +185, Mizzou +135...and I think IU is at worst a play against Michigan at +250.
Also, I feel obligated to provide this ELITE trend to all the Money Shot Maniacs: When the O/U is set at 73 or above, the home team is covering at a 62% clip. And when the O/U is set at 70 or above the home team is covering 58% of the time. Last week that trend went 3-2. Do with it what you will.
That will do it for this week. The college football season is pretty much half over at this point. I think it’s safe to say that this season sucks cock. The only way that it could redeem itself is with a big, juicy Fuckeye upset loss. Come on, Kirk Ferentz, earn that ridiculously stupid paycheck! Enjoy the games.
