  • Georgia looks awful

    Yes they do, but a lot of game left. And already a good day with Michigan and Clemson!
  • #1403 by McKdaddy on 06 Oct 2012
  • So N Illinois was a good late add.

    Good OU call
  • #1404 by Huckleberry Pig on 06 Oct 2012
  • The two teams I bet on, auburn and Georgia, both forgot that you have to score points to win. Auburn I can see, but really Georgia? They might get shut out.  I'm at a loss for words
  • #1405 by WILL CLINTON on 06 Oct 2012
  • I can't believe how awful Georgia looks. It's just sad...

    I suppose I should have listened about the TCU game, and I should have learned my own lesson about VT.

    Sitting at 3-4 on the week though, and Clemson was my big pick, so I'm actually not doing that bad $$$ wise.

    I went to the VT well too many times this season . . . dry each time.

  • Finally got around to updating my record. I went from 6 games up to 1 down in a two week span. Had a 6-1 day today to get back to a positive mark, both in record and units. I'm thinking about laying off the nfl because I'm getting my head handed to me. I don't have time to really work NCAA and nfl .

  • I dunno about everybody else, but whatever units I post I play, and I play them directly thru a casino in Nevada, occasionally one in AC. My unit play has drastically increased as this season has moved on.  This has been one of the wackiest in recent memory.  Took several weeks to get an actual read on many of these teams.

    Most seasons you can ride highly ranked big spread favorites in the first two weeks and get yourself a great start. This year not so much.  Take USC for example.  You never know if they are gonna put 65 on the board or give up 65.  I did not bet them in the game with Utah.  Had I bet I would have won. On the flip side I would have lost had I played the in the Syracuse game.  The more info you get the more comfortable you are laying larger sums.

    I understand what yraciv is saying. Since people have been being called out for posting records after the fact, they have started saying their wins are weighed heavier than the losses thereby making their record seem less important than their overall bankroll.

    The problem is that since nobody is posting bet tickets or receipts, tracking bankroll is useless, and like Will says, it's not anybody's business how much we play. People like you post your units with your picks, so you can back up what u say you post. Not everybody posts units beforehand.

    I don't post units. I will occasionally post if I'm up or down unit wise. But I like seeing how you weigh your picks as it shows how much confidence u have in the play , no matter if a unit is 5 bucks or 1000

    The only reason I post *'s by each pick is for this exact reason. I want people to know that I was way more confident about Clemson than I was about LSU or USC. That way, if anyone is following me, they don't have to bet all the games I do, but can hone in on the higher weighted ones.

    I also do it to see at the end of the season how my reads were.

  • #1411 by Jeff "hogfanintx" Anderson on 07 Oct 2012
  • Same here.  If I say a dime play or 5 unit play it means I really really like those games.  If its a 1 unit play I am betting it yes, but more of a lean than a bigtime pick.  A 1 unit play for me is often a time when it's the only game on, and I am playing it for fun.  I know I know and I have known for years it's not a smart thing to do, but I do it anyway :)
  • #1412 by McKdaddy on 07 Oct 2012
  • I don't post units/play b/c I only bet 1 unit for every bet I make due to a below-mediocrity betting record (but I find betting fun, so I bet anyway).

    But I appreciate those that do post their units/play for the reasons Will and Jeff stated above.

    If I do anything on afternoon or night games I will post them.

  • #1420 by ed_wheeley on 07 Oct 2012
  • CFB lines are out. Arkansas is -17.5 against Kentucky... Probably not going to bet on that game at all, unless it's on the money line. I've figured it out, I'm not betting early in the week anymore. I lose my ass on college games and then win it all back on 7 and 8 team moneyline parlays on NFL games. I'll waiting until Thursday and do the same on college games, unless I see a line that I just absolutely love. Ole Miss -4.5 vs Auburn is one of those.
  • #1421 by razorjack12 on 08 Oct 2012
  • I am taking Kentucky +17.5       The Hogs are definitely a risky bet this season, but I just can't leave 17.5 pts on the table . .. .

    THIS.  I am waiting till thursday or friday from now on.  Gives me time to do research and let the lines move.  if it moves away from me then I just need to let it go.  Had an awful weeend, went 0-2 on my big bets (aubur and Georgia), and lost a parlay I did.  I have one game tonight, got the Texans at -9.  Could really use a win.

    This is my first year doing this and man have I learned some lessons very quickly haha 
  • #1423 by DadVader1 on 08 Oct 2012
  • Went 3-2 on the weekend but lost my largest play so ended up even on the weekend and +13 for the season. 

    Losses (total: 14 units)
    Auburn (12 units) (first time I've ever been HAPPY about losing my largest play)
    Missouri (2 units)

    Wins (total: 14 units)
    Miss St (8 units)
    Florida (4 units)
    SC (2 units)
  • #1424 by Huckleberry Pig on 08 Oct 2012
  • few lines I'm leaning towards so far, wont bet them all but will take into consideration...

    Ole Miss (-4.5) vs Auburn

    Duke (+10) @ Va. Tech.

    Maryland (+2.5) @ Virginia

    Oregon St (+2.5) @ BYU

    Alabam (-21.5) @ Mizzou

    W. Virginia (-4.5) @ Texas Tech

    Florida (-7.5) @ Vandy

    South Carolina (+2.5) @ LSU (night game at LSU is TOUGH, but I have no faith in LSU's offense to score against SC's defense

    Miss. St (-3) vs Tenner


    Thoughts on any of these?
  • #1425 by Jeff "hogfanintx" Anderson on 08 Oct 2012
  • Texans -8.5 / 2 units

    I'm with in on all of those games except one, Maryland-Virginia. I wouldn't bet on that game. It seems like every time I see those teams play, a different team shows up. Maryland kept it close with WVU but lost to UCONN. Virginia played TCU well but has lost 4 straight. Against quality opponents, UVA would be 0-6. If I had to bet, I'd pick Maryland. +2.5, but I wouldn't stake much on it.

    To keep tonight interesting (my night off!) I've done a three game parlay picking Houston -9, the Nats to beat the Cards, and the Yankees to beat the Orioles.
  • #1430 by Huckleberry Pig on 08 Oct 2012
  • starting to have second thoughts on the Miss State vs Tenner game, Miss St has yet to play a quality opponent, will be intersting to see how they actually matchuup vs a decent Tenner team.  Dont think I will be touching this one

    I think tenner wins that game outright.
  • #1432 by DadVader1 on 08 Oct 2012
  • For now, I've taken:

    Bama -21.5 @ Missouri (2 units)
    Georgia beat down Missouri to the point that MO about quit, and GA & SC both beat MO by 21. With MO now at 0-3 in SEC and doubting themselves after losing to Vandy, I think Bama steamrolls them much worse.

    SC +3 @ LSU (2 units)
    SC's D is as good or better than LSU's, SC's O is better than LSU's, and I think Clowney & company will rattle Mettenberger and force him into making mistakes.  It's hard to go against LSU at home at night, but LSU just isn't as good as this year, and SC looks legit.
  • #1433 by WILL CLINTON on 08 Oct 2012
  • Love your Duke pick Huck. With the way VT has been the suckage lately, I don't see any reason Cutcliffe can't get the Devils up for that one.

    I really like WV -4.5 also, but TT can be tricky at home in big games. They've played the spoiler role well.
  • #1434 by WILL CLINTON on 08 Oct 2012

  • I think tenner wins that game outright.

    No lie, last night that's the first thing that popped into my head.

    I'm leaning towards Bama, as long as it stays under 21. That's still a lot of points though.
  • #1435 by ed_wheeley on 08 Oct 2012
  • I think we all agree on most of these. I picked Bama and the points. Missouri's rude awakening continues.

    with how they dismantled Virginia, I think they definitely stay within 10. 

    and Texas Tech always makes me nervous.  they are famous for playing the spoiler role in the Big 12.  this may be a bit of a trap game for WVU as well, but gosh thats a low spread for a team that just beat UT @ UT vs a team that got blown out at home vs OU...
  • #1437 by Huckleberry Pig on 08 Oct 2012

  • I think tenner wins that game outright.

    I could very well see this, esp with them coming off a bye
  • #1438 by DadVader1 on 08 Oct 2012
  • I went ahead and added another 8 units to Bama -21.5.  With almost 70% of the action on Bama, I wouldn't be surprised to see the line start to grow. 

    I doubt I'll touch Tenn @ State.  I could see it going either way.  Tenn is 2-0 ats on the road and can score some points when Bray keeps his composure (which is hard to predict).  I think State is the better team, but they haven't played anyone yet and haven't exactly steamrolled inferior opponents.

  • #1440 by sooie dog on 08 Oct 2012
  • Watchout for a let down with USCe. WVU is traveling a lot and may be part of the reason for that line being so low.  I'm not saying go either way with these it's just my observations.

    Do you mind giving some information as to why? Not trying to be sarcastic, but just would like to know your reasoning. I don't bet NFL because I don't follow it that much, but I can't imagine the Jets being that close to the Texans, who look dominant.

    I got $150 on the Texans at -9.  Jets lost their best receiver (who wasnt even that good to begin with), they have one of the worst qb's in the league, no running game, and their best corner (revis) is out for the season.  Houston has the best RB in the league, one of the better WR's in Andre Johnson (with no revis to cover him) and a top 3 D in the league.  They are set up very similar to the 49ers and we know how that went for the Jets last week

    This is why im taking the Texans.  I would also be genuinely curious as to why you're taking the jets.  I've been wrong before and I will be wrong again, hopefully not on this one though lol

  • #1444 by yraciv on 08 Oct 2012
  • I never play the NFL as ya'll can see in here, but I've been rather hot picking games on ESPNs ATS and thought I'd give it a try.  It's really just a hunch play because I don't think the Jets are as bad as they've shown.  The Texans have played what I perceive to be the easiest schedule in the NFL, so far and I think they are being overvalued.  I have confidence in a Rex Ryan defense to bounce back and be up for primetime games. Andre Johnson hasn't been 100%, and hasn't been getting targeted much lately. Maybe it's because he hasn't been needed, but Cromartie is plenty good to keep him under wraps.  Aarian Foster has also not been up to his usual standards averaging less that 4 YPC against bad teams. Then there is always the chance for some Tebow magic.

    The Jets are my V Tech of the NFL. I just can't imagine they are as bad as they showed last week. We'll see if it burns me!

  • I know we haven't quite finished up this current week but opening lines have come out for college and I wanted to see what you guys thought about West Virginia -4.5 @ Texas Tech.  This is about as tantalizing of a line as I've seen this year.  I know that's a lot of travel from WV to Austin to WV to Lubbock but after watching WV @ Texas and OU @ TTU I feel like WVU runs away with this one?  Thoughts?

    didnt see the Okie state spread, but definitely like it.  23 is a lot but KU has lost to Northern Illinois and Rice this year.  They only got beat by 14 by TCU but I really think TCU is vastly over rated, plus they cant score like OSU can.  I really like that pick
