Here's a two-team six point teaser for Sunday's NFL. I've done okay with these so far, hope to get this one home as well.
Be sure to contact me via email for details and rates about available packages!
JAGUARS +8.5/JETS +8.5
Nothing complicated here. Through the 3 and 7 with two underdogs. Good luck!
Four college football games on my card today. Lower volume than usual, but no need to force any action. Hope to have something solid on the ice, where things have gone really well in the first quarter of the NHL season.
I'll have a new package offer ready by tomorrow that will be found at the Cokin's Picks tab.
Meanwhile, here's one of the four plays I like today/
339 CENTRAL MICHIGAN at 340 BALL STATE
Take: CMU +2
This is a big game for both CMU and Ball State. The winner can capture the West if Western Michigan loses at Northern Illinois in its season finale. I believe the Chippewas are the better team in this matchup. That's based on a very big differential in yardage in conference games. Central Michigan is outgaining MAC opponents by an impressive 176 yards per game. Ball State is only +8 per game. The Cardinals have faced only a minimally tougher MAC slate to this point. That's a pretty huge split for a game that's lined this closely. The game is pretty even ...
Excellent day in the colleges on Saturday. Four winners and one kinda tough luck loser on Georgia State, as they lost their talented QB to an in-game injury. No beefs with the 4-1 on the gridiron. I"ve got just one NFL side I like on Sunday, and I'll toss that one out here as a free play.
RAMS at STEELERS
Take: RAMS -4
Here's one of the five games I'm playing in college football. Back sometime Saturday with a game for Sunday in the NFL.
LOUISVILLE at MIAMI
Take: MIAMI -6.5
Scheduling and situation are advantageous to Louisville. But my numbers have worked very well all season and I'm going to trust them in this game. I made Miami -9.5. Anytime I can garner a three point advantage in a single digit lined game, I'm backing the power ratings, and that's the case here. Miami minus the points.
Nice result on my only Monday play as the Arizona Coyotes earned the OT win at Edmonton. NHL is going quite well thankfully, and no beefs with the college football. And now, college basketball gets started. I'll post the rates sometime in the next day or two, or you can contact me for info. Meanwhile, two plays as of now for Opening Night and I'll publish one of those here as a free play.
667 DENVER at 668 COLORADO STATE
Take: COLORADO STATE -14
Sorry, no free NFL play today. I made a decision that I won't put any more "leans" here that are not actual plays. Just seems kinda lame to offer an opinion I'm not backing with any cash myself. As it happens, i have just one NFL wager today, and that's already being sold on various websites as well as emailed to my customers. So hope you understand, I can't really publish it here as a comp.
Good news is there should be more daily entries moving forward as college basketball gets going this week, plus there's always the NHL.
As for my Saturday, the Utah State loser here was hideous, but the rest of my day went well enough. Loser on FIU, but very comfortable winners with Buffalo, Kansas State and Tennessee. Nevada managed to cover as well to close out the proceedings at 4-2, so the decent results keep coming.
College hoops begin Tuesday, and I'll let everyone know about my early season strategy at that time. Enjoy your Sunday!
Still crunched for time to do more detailed blogs. But for the time being, I can at least get a couple of free football plays posted here each week. Contact me for details on any of my packages, as there's always time to properly service my clients!
339 BYU at 340 UTAH STATE
Take: UTAH STATE -3
I'm playing this one on the power ratings projections. BYU is off a great win against Boise State and had last week off. Utah State is off a dreadful game at Air Force where they were destroyed for 60 minutes against the option, which they appeared to have no idea on how to defend. Those two results have gotten the market firmly behind the underdog in this game, and I see the value now being with the Aggies. Utah State might be an overall disappointment but this is still a decent team. BYU has had its moments to be sure, as they did beat Boise, also upset USC and topped Tennessee on the road, although that one was remarkably lucky. But the Cougars also have road losses to South ...
My free play for Sunday's NFL is a six point two-team teaser. Good luck if you're along for the ride.
BUCCANEERS +8.5 WITH SEAHAWKS -1.5
As you're likely aware, the blog updates have been very sporadic and figure to continue to be that way for the near future. It's simply a time element issue for me. But be sure to check in as there will be occasional free plays and a little commentary every now and then. Meanwhile, here's a comp for Saturday's college gridiron action. Awful matchup but I went for what i perceive as decent value.
CONNECTICUT AT MASSACHUSETTS
Take: UMASS +10
Here's one of the five plays I've got for Saturday's college football. Strong season to date, let's get this one into the win column as well. For updated rates on available packages, email me for details.
186 Florida Atlantic -10.5: A few elements pointing me to FAU in this game. The Owls seem to be getting things together, so positive momentum is a plus. Middle Tennessee is off a rather fraudulent win in which they were outplayed but got the benefit of a +4 net turnover ratio. I also like the revenge factor here. FAU was in complete control last season, up 21-3 and in position to blow out MTSU. But the Owls got very sloppy in what appeared to simply be a loss of focus and ended up blowing the game when MTSU scorned a late TD and went for the win on a successful two pointer. That ended up being an extremely costly loss for the Owls, and I have to believe they want to get some payback here. The Blue Raiders are pretty well coached but their numbers just aren't any good. FAU is ...
Set for another Saturday loaded with college football action. Been a heckuva season to date. Here's one of the games I'm playing. To get everything I'm on, buy one of the available packages at Cokin's Picks or email me for more details.
360 UAB -10: Rice has been a pain in the butt for me the last two weeks, as they slipped inside the number against Baylor and covered in the OT loss to La Tech. But that was a very tough beat for the Owls last Saturday and I think they could be down some here. UAB is not what they were last season, but this is a well coached team off a loss they basically gave away last week against Western Kentucky. I expect the Blazers to rebound and they are very tough against the run, which should provide a big matchup edge against Rice. I made this number Blazers -12.5 and I like the spot. UAB minus the points.
Quick hit today. Plenty of action set for tomorrow in college football, where things continue to go really well. Blank on the ice tonight, but off to a profitable start in the NHL. MLB Playoffs are 1-0 and I will try to ad to that tonight with one play that I'll use here as a free play.
NATIONALS F5/9 SPLIT (HALF UNIT F5, HALF UNIT FULL GAME)
