Ahh Rise and Shine its September 1st and theres a full slate of games going in! No better way for the 1st of the month to fall on then a college football Saturday. I’ve been giving you baseball winners the past couple weeks now time for some football. Americas game. So much to be excited about and so much money to be made. Play it smart and from the heart. Weekly ill give a few games I love alone. Some teasers, parlays and money-line parlays on when we should play it safe.
Auburn -2 V Washington
The biggest game on the Slate is between (6) Auburn and (9) Washington. Two highly ranked teams that went to major bowls last season. Absolutely the play here is the Tigers. Game is neutral field but in the Georgia Dome down in Atlanta so practically a home game for Auburn. Both teams coming off 10 win seasons. Last year the Huskies of UW played jokes of teams in out of conference. Had a fairly weak conference schedule as well. Only defeating 1 ranked team in the final standings. I’m no SEC fan but take the Tigers and the 2. Also kind of like the over 49 here. Huskies put up points but Auburn can play a low grueling game too well so bet with caution on the over.
Miami V LSU +3.5
Well I see the Miami kool aid is being drank again! Team has been on and off back for years now. They will continue to be frauds. Honestly surprise LSU is a dog more than a field goal even though its neutral site in Dallas. Both teams starting with young and new QB’s. I got to roll with my guy Coach O. He’ll have them boys fired up and that stout LSU defense will be on display. Also love the under 46.5. Don’t be scared to sprinkle a parlay on this one.
Michigan V Notre Dame (Even)
I will not stand for my Fighting Irish being home dogs verse the under achieving Wolverines. Brian Kelly always gets the Irish off to a fast start the past few seasons before having horrible melt downs and just not showing up to games. Sure Shea Patterson is being deemed as a Michigan savoir but the Irish will hold him down as this century long rivalry renews after a few years.
Money Line Parlay (Lock of day)
West Virginia(-350) Texas(-550) Boise St(-380)
Deeming this 3 teamer as my lock of the day for opening weekend. Great value in all money lines that add up to almost even on the payout. Just need to worry about that W. West Virginia should handle the rebuilding and bottom dwellers of the SEC Tennessee in North Carolina. They are led by former Gator, former steroid user and Heisman hopeful Will Grier. Next, Texas taking on the train wreck of Maryland football over in Landover, Maryland. If Texas can’t win this one… they may never be back. Last we Have the boys of the blue turf of Boise on a true road game at Troy. Troy has been decent but expect Boise to play 60 minutes of Bronco football, whatever that means.
Virginia Tech (+7) Iowa (-10) Washington St (-2.5)
Good lines on all these games. Get yourself a decent payout. Hookies finished strong last year being ranked 13th in the final standings. After FSU barely made a bowl game and lost Jimbo Fischer. So go ahead and give me those 7 points on the road. Hawk-eyes should hold off Northern Illinois at home. Only a spread of 10 is awful low for a team that fought hard in the top heavy Big Ten. The final piece to the puzzle is WASU at Wyoming. Very low spread on this one, just needing the Cougars to win by a FG. Wyoming was only average last year with top 10 QB Josh Allen and even then was a struggle for the Cowboys.
Enjoy and Good Luck!
