After watching the NFL this past week I can honestly say a lot of money changes hands in the last minute of some big games.

The Steelers scored with two minutes left in the game to lose by 7, which was the point spread. That score made the teasers winners on all sides.

The last Sunday game between the Cows and the Giants is the one that really amazes me. The Cows had no time outs, Eli tosses the ball away and stops the clock instead of just running around, taking a little hit to keep the clock rolling.

Dallas gets the ball back, down 6 with a minute or so left, and just cruises down the field to get the winning TD, enabling those teasers to be good on both sides as some big cash changed hands in that game along with serious money line wagers.

The funny or not so funny thing was after watching these games you could bet anyone the Cowboys would go down and score.

One of the big moves in the NFL this weekend was on the Rex Ryan Bills who went to pick ’em in some spots after opening up +2.5 against the Colts. The Bills dominated to get the easy 27-14 win.

With all that said it is a long season and I do know one bettor who was very happy with that Cowboys TD. That was “Teaser” Tom Noonon who bets nothing but teasers.

Well, with that said we will move on to this week and see if we can get into the plus column in college football and take a shot with a few NFL plays.

CFB Last Week: 2-5-0

CFB Season: 5-9-1

College Football
Saturday, Sept. 19

La. Tech +11.5 at Kansas St.: Some nice trends here favor the high scoring Bulldogs in this non-conference battle. First they have gone 6-0 ATS when coming off a loss as the favorite. They lost to Western Kentucky last week, 41-38, when favored by 2.5. Kansas State has gone 0-5 ATS when coming off a non-conference win by double digits. The Wildcats beat UTSA last week, 30-3, and will be looking ahead to a huge game with Okie State in two weeks. LA. TECH.

Mississippi +6.5 at Alabama: This bettor will be out early today looking for some -6.5 in one of the biggest revenge games of the week as the Tide lost to Ole Miss last year in Oxford, 23-17. The fans in Tuscaloosa will be camped out at Bryant-Denny Stadium barbecuing and lying in wait for the Crimson Tide to cook the Rebs. ALABAMA.

Texas Tech +10 at Arkansas: Say it ain’t so, but it is. The dull Razorbacks were upset last week as a 21-point favorite by Holy Toledo, 16-12. There will be fire in their eyes this Saturday and we would love to see Bret Bielema’s practices this week. The Red Raiders have gone 0-11 ATS as a road dog of 14 or less points and 0-6 ATS as a non-conference dog after scoring 35 or more points in the previous week. Tech beat UTEP last week, 69-20, leading us to be laying the 10 with the fired up Razorbacks. ARKANSAS.

Stanford +9 at USC: This matchup is USC offense vs. Stanford defense. The favorite in the series has gone 0-7-1 the last eight meetings and the Cardinal are 12-0 ATS when coming off a non-conference game and playing a league team. To make things more juicy they have gone 7-0 ATS when getting 8 or more points vs. a .600 or higher opponent. Plus it’s a revenge game after a home loss to USC. STANFORD.

Pittsburgh +4 at Iowa: We will be betting on the Panthers in this game mainly because last week they went to Akron and got the big revenge win. That ran their away revenge record on the road off a win to 11-0 ATS. Now they travel to Iowa City to play another revenge game off a win as the Hawkeyes beat them in Pittsburgh last year, 24-20. PITTSBURGH.

NFL
Sunday, Sept. 20

Seahawks +3.5 at Packers (48.5): Our sports editor, Mark Mayer, was yelling at me when I picked this game. How can you take Seattle after watching them yesterday! Well this is called the NFL and most of the time every week there are different results. The play for me here is the dog as Pete Carroll has gone 13-1 ATS when facing a team coming off a win. The Pack got by the Bears this past Sunday, 31-23. It will be much closer this weekend. SEAHAWKS.

NFL Last Week: 2-0-0

NFL Season: 2-0-0

Note: The books were packed for the first week of the NFL and it will stay that way. Most important, get out and make a bet, especially a 10 team parlay card. You just may be walking around lucky and not even know it.
