There are times when what goes around comes around.
This non-tweeter was passing on some tweets a few weeks ago that were said to come from Northern Nevada. I am not a computer wizard, but was able to relay thanks to Mr. Saroudous my typing teacher at Big Red. Don’t know if they are on the level so I will not write what they said but it had something to do with UNLV losing to Howard as a -45 point chalk.
Our Rebels did come back to whip Idaho the following week as a dog and will now go on the road again to Columbus to take on the Buckeyes in what will be a big payday for the UNLV program. We wish them well. Just don’t get blown out.
Well, what goes around comes around sometimes. This past weekend the Nevada Wolf Pack was at home playing lowly Idaho State and listed as a -34 point favorite on the added board. The Bengals somehow came away with the unbelievable win, 30-28.
Last week we kissed our sister 3-3 as we lost the UL-Lafayette game by a point and Louisville just could not handle Clemson. We lost the BYU under bet by a whisker so we will move on. It’s a long season and we will make a run.
Ok, let’s see if we can get more winners than losers this week.
Michigan -10 at Purdue: New Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm has done a remarkable job so far winning two of three games with the lone loss coming at Louisville by just seven points as a +25-point dog. They have covered all three games this year. After watching the Air Force/Michigan game last week we say take the home conference dog here. PURDUE
Miss State +5 at Georgia: I know the game has changed and this at one time would have been a great play but this bettor still cannot pass it up. I will be on the Bulldogs from Athens laying the 5 as they catch the other Bulldogs from Starkville off a huge home dog win over LSU last Saturday. Georgia has won all three of their games and has 10 starters back on defense. Note that in the first three games they are only giving up an average of 14 points a contest. GEORGIA
Notre Dame -4 at Michigan St.: Let’s make a prediction: If Notre Dame loses this game there will be a new head coach in South Bend next year.
The last six times the Irish failed to post a winning season (they only had four wins last year and no Bowl game) they posted a winning record the following year. Well this is the following year and a win here is very necessary. The Irish have gone 3-1-1 ATS the last five meetings and they should be undefeated but for a one-point loss vs. Georgia when Brian Kelly blew it. Last year seven of Notre Dame’s eight losses came by 8 or less points, which shows Kelly is on the ropes. He needs to win some close games. NOTRE DAME
Auburn -17 at Missouri: Auburn needs to run the table before their season-ending game with Alabama. They held Clemson to just two touchdowns, and Missouri has no offense. They scored just 13 vs. South Carolina at home in an 18-point defeat and only a field goal at home last week, losing by 32 vs. Purdue. Blowout city here. Lay it early as it will only go up, up and away. AUBURN
San Diego State -5 at Air Force: The Fly Boys catch the Aztecs off huge back-to-back dog wins with the last vs. Stanford, 20-17, getting 9. AIR FORCE
Nevada +27 at Washington St.: I don’t see the 3-0 Cougars calling off the dogs vs. lowly Nevada. Can’t see the Wolf Pack being able to stop the high-powered Cougar offense. Hate laying a big number like this but the tweets got the best of me. WASHINGTON ST.
Last week: 3-3
Note: If you want to see a real nice, comfortable new race and sportsbook take the short drive and visit the brand spanking new Arizona Charlie’s neighborhood book on Decatur just past Charleston. You may not leave.
At Los Alamitos this Thursday in the 5th race, and kudos to my fellow writer and friend Jon Lindo who has given out back-to-back winners. We get a full field of eight runners in this 5½ furlong sprint for $20k maiden claimers and No. 4 Two Thirty Five gets his second start off the layoff. The key here is trainer Brian Koriner puts on jockey Edwin Maldonaldo as this looks like the money run. We will be singling him in the pick five at 7/2 on the morning line.
Remember, keep playing those 10 team parlay cards. You could be walking around lucky and not even know it.
