Behind enemy lines - Week 4

Didn’t I tell ya I gotcha back? It was nice to get a sweep for a change. The big swings usually start to even out once there is some solid data to work with. It was nice to get a sweep under our belt, going 2-0 last weekend with Vandy and the Titans. So at 3-2 in both college and pro let’s try to get a little separation on what I hope will be a “road dog weekend”. On Saturday I like Colorado +1.5 on the road at a very over rated Florida State team. I understand that Colorado hasn’t been a monster on the road the last two years but in that regard, Fla St. is 0-6 as a home fave from 3.5 – 7 points, and 2 – 8 ATS as a fav in general up to 10 points. I also like Bama’ getting points in what should be a touch SEC rivalry game. I always like a little margin for error particularly when they can easily win the game on the field as well. In the League I like the Saints (-5.5 at home to the Niners) to rebound after Gra-Titanica shanked it wide against Denver. Lastly, in the annual Cowboys vs. Indians western, I’m go to go with the Cheyenne Indians to go into Little Big Horn and not get slaughtered. The Redskins (+11) seems to be way too many points in a rivalry that always seems to be close. Crack a brew, there will be lots of good games to watch. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Nicky, when are you posting for this week? Help me out dog! If you can, let me know what you think about Oklahoma laying 18 1/2 at home against TCU. PS - do you even look at baseball?

I looked at that, but I thought 18.5 was too much lumber for a border war type game. Moreover, I like the TCU's offense to keep this within three touchdowns so in that regard it is either going to be 21 or 17. Tough one to call, but if someone put a gun to my head, I would take the number.

nice job again Nicky, 3 of 4, but can you post the picks earlier in week? the lines sometimes move before i can get in.

I love Utah+12 hosting Oregon on Thursday what do you think about that line? Pac-10 is really weak and the Mormon schools are tough at home.

Do the Chiefs come back down to earth this weekend and get spanked by the Jags at home. The line is Jville -9 1/2 whatta ya think?

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.
