Hank, you and dirk should post us your naps for the weekend. You two follow it and know your stuff. I like a bet on it if there is nothing else going on but know zilch about the players. It`s them basketball shoot outs that puts me off.

This is probably the kiss of death as I haven't put any picks up yet, but I really like Utah at home tonight v USC. Admittedly the USC defeats were against bama and Stanford. No embarrassment losing to those 2 sides. However, there is push back against the new coach who many thought would smooth over the latest crises at USC. QB Browne is losing his place tonight and Darnold steps in. A bold move away at a divisional rival with a great defence. For me, this isn't the place to be swapping your QB and I have taken Utah at 1.75. A low scorer imo tonight and if pushed would have the unders too,but will stick to the home side.

Nobody beats the vols 12 times in a row! well, surely with Del Rio out and being at home, Tenn are surely going to end the streak. Impressed with Wisconsin putting the beatdown on MSU who I rate. I think that shows Wisconsin's defeat of LSU was for real. Not a great deal stands out for me today, but I do like Houston to cover against Tx State later.

Report Hank Hill October 8, 2016 8:58 AM BST
This is the game I look forward to most now there is no longhorn and Aggies match. The Red River game is here - Texas v Oklahoma. Like a football derby form often goes out the window here - as happened last year with a shock longhorn win. At the end of the season the longhorns missed out on a bowl but the Sooners made the playoffs. Well, I think the shock is on again this year and I have had to back my team at 5s. Personally I price them in the 3.3-3.5 range so it's an easy bet for me, but I am biased lol

For those that don't know, the game is played in Dallas and the tickets split 50/50, so no home advantage. Both teams have been putting up large numbers offensively but also conceding a shedload. Especially my longhorns who have given up an incredible 99 points in the last 2 games. Now, you may wonder why I can back a team that has done that! My reasons are as stated earlier this match can often go against form, the head coach Charlie Strong is fighting for his job and has fired the DC and is taking over defensive plays himself - which as a defensive minded coach I am hoping that might plug some of the holes in the defense that has been shredded. DE Walker and LB Johnson are going to be missing. A headache the Oklahoma defense could do without.

My final point is unlike last year the Texas offense is much more balanced - after so many busts since the McCoy days UT now has a legitimate QB in Shane Buechele and combine that with the running ability of Swoopes as a dual threat QB tandem. Now, after all that, it's possible that Oklahoma still shred the porous Texas defense and our special teams mishaps continue. However at 5s I think it is a great bet and I have max bet 3 points on it.

Other matches that have caught my eye are Indiana to cover the hcap against OSU (+29.5) and Texas State to cover against Georgia State (+10.5)

GL with your bets

Hmmm all the good work of the 1st half has been undone. This is probably the worst defence I have watched in 16 years of following the longhorns. It appears that the defence is going to be unfixable this season. Not sure Strong is making it through the season.

rhino what you on this w/e? also, any lurkers feel free to join in Grin

Going to start the week off with S Fla against Temple. I like S Fla offense and like them to cover by a td. Cincy away is normally a good marker imo for teams and they blew them out 45-20. Bama are a monster of a team again, but I have to take the aggies with the pts. Saban never goes easy on teams and will attempt to run it up, but I have to think that Knight and co can keep it within 18 - remember Knight is one a few QB's to know what it's like to beat bama recently (as a sooner)
Report themightymac October 22, 2016 1:35 AM BST
Hi Hank, S Florida can move the ball quick but they can`t get it and their defence has been  on the field nearly all the first half and can`t stop Temple. They`ll probably win the game but handicap looks in a little bit trouble. HT 20-13 Temple. Florida need to win 2nd half by 14pts which is very possible.
Report therhino October 22, 2016 1:46 AM BST
18.5 is plenty of points but no interest in going against Bama, they are a machine. I like Arkansas +10.5 against Auburn and Ohio State to smash Penn St so like the -19.5. Don't think i've ever seen an over/under line set at 87.5, but that is what we got for Oregon vs California Shocked
Report Hank Hill October 22, 2016 4:33 PM BST
mac SF were fairly abysmal tbh. Yeah, I know what you mean rhino, but I feel the line is generous so am on. Gone for a, late pick -  Minn to cover 16.5 v Rutgers. 14 points in their last 4 games! yep that did include OSU and Mich, but 17 pt defeat at home to Illinois does not inspire confidence. On the other hand a narrow defeat for Minn to Iowa and PSU and Minn can put up points.

The line may have seemed high rhino but they are 2 terrible defences. Cal blew a 21 pt lead and missed last 2nd fg for win but got INT in ot - another wild game. I wish NFL would do college OT, it really is far superior.
