Behind enemy lines in NCAA Football

Yo, this is Nicky and we have been getting WHACKED in college the last four weeks including simply going the wrong way on Texas Tech last week, so we need to get back on track and we’re going back to an old well to do it. This is one of those tough Saturday’s because you either jump into the fire on a tough game that could go either way or play a top 15 laying 56 points against a cupcake. What we’re trying to do is find a good home team that isn’t laying 3 touchdowns so it still can be in a one score game in the 4th and still cover. Of the games that fit this mold we like going back to the desert with Arizona (-7.5) against Oregon State. We know after a big home win against a top 10 like Iowa there could be a let down, but being ranked in the top-10 for the first time in years will be motivation enough. OState does have some serious weapons that should produce a cheap score but it shouldn’t be enough to keep this one within 10 points. Arizona is 6-1 its last seven games and 10-2 over the last 12. I think the bear trap is those that might be taken by the stat that the Cats are 1-4 against Oregon State at home their last five games. But the rub is that that pre-dates back ten years and includes the pre-stoops era, not to mention a totally different mindset, but that’s why you’re not laying 13 points so take it and bid it. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
