See if you can beat the Big Dog and all our other dogs making guest appearances. We even have a dog coming out of witness protection. He has been under house arrest at one of our shelters but has been receiving his GamingToday. He will be armed, dangerous and ready to make his picks.

Talking about dogs, Dino “Martin” Saber, the family pet, was taking in some sports just last week and he was very upset when it was announced that his Pittsburgh Steelers had signed Michael Vick. After a conversation with Dino we have come to the decision to toss the Steelers under the proverbial bus. No offense to Jerome “The Bus” Bettis!

We at the Saber household are now Cleveland Browns fans and loving the “dawg” pound. Remember this play: The Steelers end their season with the Browns in Cleveland on Jan. 3, 2016, a day the “dawgs” get their revenge in more ways than one!

Let’s bet some college football.

College Football – Thursday, Sept. 3

Michigan +6 total 46.5 at Utah: Huge game for Wolverines and new head coach Jim Harbaugh. Salt Lake a very tough place to start off a new season but Michigan has had this game, one of several, circled for some time. The Utes beat them in Ann Arbor last year, 26-10, and the 100k fans did not like it very much. Michigan has gone 6-0 ATS as a non-conference dog when seeking revenge. MICHIGAN +6.

Colorado -7.5 total 56.5 at Hawaii: The get out game of the day as the Buffaloes travel to Honolulu to take on the Rainbow Warriors, I wonder how many Colorado players have been to Honolulu? Hawaii has gone 9-0 as a home dog of 8 or less points vs. a non-conference team. Look for head coach Chow to have his Warriors ready. HAWAII +7.5

College Football – Friday, Sept. 4

Baylor -36 at SMU: The Bears beat SMU 45-0 last year and have most of the team back. Last year they outscored their opponents 196-70 in the first quarter. We may also want to make a first half bet and lay the points. The Mustangs have gone 0-6 ATS as non-conference dogs of 14 or more points. BAYLOR -36.

College Football – Saturday, Sept. 5

Penn State -7 total 39 at Temple: My rabbi told me Temple is a good bet on Saturdays as Sam Brown would quip. He just may be right here taking the points in what will be a very low scoring game. The Owls have gone 5-0 as a home dog with revenge. They lost at Penn State last year, 30-13. Temple gets 11 starters back on defense. Look for them to surprise. TEMPLE +7/ UNDER 39.

Texas +10 total 54.5 at Notre Dame: The Longhorns had a rare losing season last year under first year head coach Charlie Strong. Look for them to surprise many teams this year starting with the Irish. Texas has won 15 straight Game 1’s. It will be a close one. TEXAS +10.

Wisconsin +10 total 52 vs. Alabama (at Arlington, Texas): The Tide under Nick Saban always comes up with a great defense but the Badgers have one to match and this year Bama may start very slow on offense. This game just has all the appearances of low scoring. Wisky will make us very frisky. WISCONSIN +10/UNDER 52.

There will be parlay cards at all the sportsbooks this week so get out, pick some up and make one of those 10 teamers. You just may be walking around lucky and not even know it.

Log on to and sign up for the FREE BIG DOG contest, go DAWGS!
