Behind Enemy Lines Week 3

Ok, we made it through the first couple weeks at .500 (2-2 in both college and pro) with all of our fingers and toes, and you don’t really have any information to go on so we’re in good shape. The Men of Troy took care of business for us, but we sure went down the toilet with the Fish and Titans in NFL, but hey, any week above ground is a good week so let’s get back at it. I like Wake Forest(+4) at Florida St. the ACC is down this year but Wake may just be the best of the bunch, and they always play tough on the road to begin with, on top of that you’re going to throw in more than a field goal? I’ll take it and bid it. For all of you quants out there, Wake is 10-3 ATS after 2 straight up wins and Fla St. is 1-4 after 2 straight up wins, both have won 2 straight. Laslty, I like getting points with two ranked conference opponents (wake #18 fla st. #25).

In the league we’re crossing over to the other side of the team that took our money last week. I like Tennessee (-4.5) vs. Houston, not just because historically the Texans are a terrible road team but they are 1-4 ATS as a road dog 3.5 to 7 (5 point spread) and the Titans play divisional opponents very tough (11-2 ATS vs division opponents) and that only improves at home. I don’t like laying more than a field goal in inter-division games but even with the head case on the sidelines, the Titans may actually be a BETTER team. In three weeks this line would have been 7 ½. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Nicky GREAT CALL!!!! Wake won the game outright!!! what do ya think about Dallas -3 at Green Bay?

The Raiders have a good rushing attack and their defense can play respectable. However, they have yet to develop any semblance of a passing attack, head coach Lane Kiffin is dead man walking and the Raiders are traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast with an early start time.

“It’s a tough trip for Oakland,” Seba said. “But it’s not a good situation either for the Bills. They could be in a letdown spot.

Bookmakers disagree. The Bills currently are -9 and even up to -9 ½ hosting Oakland.

bookbreaker said...

Miami could be a take also if the line reaches Patriots -14. The Dolphins-Patriots have the lowest ‘over/under’ on the Week 3 board at 34 ½.

I would have to take the Dolphins at +14 just because of the low total

dcthomkins said...

The biggest spreads this week are on the New York Giants laying 13 to the visiting Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots -13 at home to the Miami Dolphins.

I don't like this game to many variables, Dallas is comin' off a emotional Monday Night win and I just don't know where there heads at. If i had to tie-off and waga, and was jonesin' to waga, i might put a little somethin' somethin' on the overs.

12-5 college for the year, 9-3 in pro. If you have comments, questions on a game, or need injury and weather reports, list your question in the blog for answers. ‘Nikki the Fish’ in the Player’s Club chat room every Wednesday.
