So far, just Texas Tech -21.

I'm really debating taking Kansas outright at +280. Great value at home against a very banged up Oklahoma.

Anybody else back this play?

They are banged up, but I still think they have a big match-up advantage up front, when they are on defense. If I knew UK could keep Reesing somewhat clean I'd be with you. I just don't think that's going to happen.

I don't like Oklahoma here either by the way. I think the big man and his staff do a nice job there. Staying away from this one.

Georgia Tech just beats the #4 team in the country & they're just 5 point faves over Virginia??? The line started out at 4.

Looks like a set-up to me. I'd stay away from that one. G.T. hasn't beaten Virginia in Virginia since 1990.
If the Dolans owned BP, they'd give promotions to everyone responsible for the oil spill.

Haven't played many games the past few weeks, but liking Miami(FL) -4 at home vs. Clemson...

I feel like Idaho pulls the upset today.

I have like 7 minutes to bet it, though.

Decided against it, but Idaho's playing with them.

Sick big plays in that game. Nevada has TDs of 89 and 61 while Idaho has two TDs of 73 yards and a 59 yarder.

611 total yards in the first half.

Of course I pick Pipe's only loss of the day yesterday.
