back in the trenches..........

Nikki has been on a roll and I hope you’ve been on the train, going 5-1 last week between college and pro (please see previous post for documentation) bringing my record to 21-8 in college and 18-6 in pro. Ok, now that my shoulder is soar from patting myself on the back, let’s get into the trenches, and this looks like a tough week. In college we start in “The Big House” where Michigan has a chance to rescue what will always be known as the season from hell, and possibly Lloyd Carr’s last game at the helm. Take the 4.5, and put on your maze and blue. It’s BCS time, and that means you can’t just win but must win big, so look at those teams that have to make a statement. With that in mind I like West Virginia (-6) going into Cincinnati. WV has played really well lately, and is 8-2 ATS on the road the last 10 in November. Lastly, play the Sooners (-8) who are 5-1 ATS the last 6 against Texas Tech.

In the league, I know you don’t bet on bad teams but I love the Chiefs +14.5 against an injury riddled Colts team w/out Dwight Freeny. The chefs should be able to run against the Colts, keep Peyton off the field, and keep it close. The second game I like is the Lions (+3.5) at home vs. the G-Men, make sure to buy the hook up by .5 as this could easily be a field goal game. Lastly, the over (47.5) in the Saints/Texans as both teams will keep going up top in the forth quarter and the Texans have played 4 straight home overs in November. That’s the chowder, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
