Who ya' got?

One of my favorite bets of the year, Rice (or Baylor) vs. Texas. Last 5 games vs Rice, Texas is 5-0, averages 48.8 points per game and wins by an average of 38 points The average combined game score is 59. Waiting to see the lines...

If the line is 59 and Texas scored 49, im not sure Rice even scores 10 to cover the over. But then again, UTEP put up some points on them. The over sounds like a good play.

I hate the lines this week. I'm not very comfortable with any of them at this point.

Same with the NFL.

North Carolina's 4th quarter choke job cost me $46. Had Wake at +175 and Tulane -6. Of course I was between TCU and UNC, TCU won huge. God damnit.
