    For tomorrow nights NFL opener no pick for me, my opinion would be Oakland + 7.5 and the under 50.

    For College football I like these games: last weeks record 8-3.

    3* Oklahoma -30.5 over Tulsa.........They won't lose two at home and should be up for a blow out.

    7* Minnisota. -13 over Colo. St...........Minn. is tough at home.

    10* Iowa -8.5 over Iowa St.............Iowa is the whole package this year.

    7* Texas - over Ohio St..............TX is great road team and deep.

    5* TCU -14.5 over SMU..............Last week was not luck, this team is good.

    2* Akron +34.5 over Purdue........34.5 pts at home sounds like to many here.

    Wow! Dog day in the NFL.

    What a first week of NFL action. Upset after upset, I ended up down on the NFL picks (won in college), but from what I heard most lost this week.

    I am in a picking contest for the NFL this year. We started with 2,420 players and after the first week 1,315 players are out! Please note these picks are not even against the spread and over half the players are already finished for the year. I survived the first week with a 9 - 7 victory on Washington Redskins.

    They pointed out on ESPN that out of 10 games with last year playoff teams playing teams that didn't make the playoffs 7 out of 10 lost yesterday.

  6. Making money with the best of them

    I heard that some intelligent handsome cowboy was tearing them up in football again this year so I had to end my 4 month hiatus and see what selections could put a few bucks in my pocket on this site.

    NFL Sunday

    Excuse me while I answere the door. Oh its the Brinks Armored Truck with a delivery. Up 28* from Saturday. Was about to bet Texas yesterday but we went out to eat at our favorite Chinese resturant yesterday and I asked the waitress what she liked. She said anything's good over Rice. The meal was lousy so I didn't bet the game, turned out Texas got a win/no cover.
    We're playing these on an empty stomache:
    10* Jax +9 @Indy History of playing them tough
    5* under in TB/Buff. The Cadillac against the best defense in the NFL
    10* Cinci -3 vs Minn Bengals show 'em "No Mas"
    5* Carolina +3 vs NE This may be the only blemish on their record
    15* Ariz -1 vs Rams Worst coach in NFL takes his team to the desert on grass
    5* Clev +6 @GB Two teams going in opposite directions
    10* Miami +6 @ Jets. Miami finally has a QB & RB to go with their defense.
    5* SD +3 @ Denver Broncos overated
    5* KC even 2 Raiders Almost like the over but the KC D is much better in '05
    5* Dallas -5.5 vs Skins Gibbs should have stayed with NASCAR
    Bonus pick Jeff Gordon @ Loudin and the LA Dodgers
    By the way Jim Fiest charged $500 to his elete player for the Micigan St over ND selection yesterday but you got it free here.

    Instagator in a landslide this week

    Instagator edged me out in the college picks, but killed me on the pro picks this weekend.

    In the first two weeks I haven't posted a winning week in the pros yet!

    Sunday's pick's

    I wasn't crazy about that many of the college play on the first week of conference play. That along with me getting ready for the cruise I didn't put any college picks up this week.

    Now for the pro's I like these games.

    3* Cini. -3.5 over Chi. Maybe a good under bet also. (WON)

    1* NO +3.5 over Minn. Until Minn. show something I'd bet against. (LOST)

    3* Caro. -3.5 over Miami Maybe another good under play. (LOST)

    5* Clev/Ind over 47 Payton breaks out and Ind "D" lets down. (LOST)

    5* Dal. -6.5 over SF Should win if they play the full 60 minutes this week. (LOST)

    1 - 4 after Sunday OUCH!

    Monday night:

    1* KC +3 over Denver Denver is tough place to play.

    Picks this week go to the dogs

    2* Pittsburgh +1.5 Seems like Pitt should be favored by 4. Could be a trap
    3* Michigan +5.5 Ripe for an upset.
    4* WVa +10 Always play VT tuff.
    5* Fla +3.5 At Tuscalosa. Tough stadium to play in, all the men over 40 with no teeth wear their Bear Bryant "hound's tooth" hats, think they can walk on water, and hold up their religious icons: a roll of toilet paper and a box of detergent. The average educational level in the stands is the 4th grade and that incudes the alumni.
    3* Ariz St. +15 SC gets their only loss this week. May not be as easy as 2003
    2* Clemson +6.5 over Wake
    4* ND +3 They need lot of Hail Marys this week. A passing game will also help.
    2* South Florida +21 vs Miami Can you say over confidence
    2* Central Michigan +11 over the ZIPS. Akron has the most miles of sewers per capita of any city in the world, and they need them all.
    10*Texas -14 over Mizzou. New #1 when the BCS comes out.
  17. Fla -3.5 or Ala +3.5?????
  18. Also, Clem -6.5 not +6.5?

    13 Point Turnaround

    Thats why their results are so good they take a 6 1/2 favorite and make them + 6 1/2
    for a 13 point turnaround

    You and I Mr Peterson would break every book in town if we could move the line 13 points :rolleyes:

    Here are todays pick's!

    5* Wisiconsin -11.5 (Wrong line would have pushed at 17)
    2* Virgina - 2 (LOST)
    3* V. Tech - 6 (WON)
    5* TX Tech - 10 (WON)
    7* Minn. - 1 (GOT KILLED, guess Minn. can't play on the road)
    10* USC - 9.5 (NO ACTION - Wrong line) USC won by 10.
    10* Boston College -38.5 (LOST) I hate this BC won 38 - 0. 1/2 killed me.


    1* Texas -14.5 (I like TX, but on the road the week before TX/OU weekend)
    (WON) I was impressed with TX today.
