WEEK 7 CFB OPPOSITE PICKS: 3-4
1. INDIANA -27.5 vs Rutgers
Not to early to start thinking about becoming
bowl eligible...especially for teams like Indiana where that's their main goal entering the season. Well, if IU wants to get at least six wins, then they HAVE to beat Rutgers. Four of IU's their last 7 games are on the road and this game is by far it's easiest. Point is they WILL take this game seriously. Much like they curshed UCONN 35-3, the same happens here. Rutgers not only fired the head coach two weeks ago, but they blew out his staff as well. This team is a mess. No line can be high enough to go against them.
IU is 7-1 ATS last 8 times as home favs!
OPPOSITE PICK: RUTGERS +27.5 = LOSE
2. MINNESOTA -7.5 vs Nebraska
The Cornhuskers stink. They were VERY LUCKY to
beat offensively inept Northwestern at home last week. Now their star (used loosely) QB Adrian Martinez is hurt and might not play. I don't see them going on the road and beating a decent Minnesota team. Teams have split the last two years with the home team winning & covering each time. Ride the Gophers.
OPPOSITE PICK: NEBRASKA +7.5 = LOSE
3. ARIZONA ST. -1 vs. Washington St.
Geez, what am I missing about this line?
WST who's head coach called them out two weeks ago as being soft is now going to win on the road against an AST team that is 4-1? I don't get this line at all. Both teams have had two weeks to prepare. WST is falling apart, while Herm "We Play to Win the Game" Edwards has the Sun Devils rolling. LOVE AST here.
OPPOSITE PICK: WASHINGTON ST. +1 = LOSE
4. KENT ST. -14.5 @ Akron
Yes, laying over 2 TD's with Kent St. on the road.
Why? Because it's Akron. Unzipper the Zips. That's their mantra this year. This clubs is worst than Rutgers. This club is worst than Utep.
Hell, this club actually LOST to UMASS! They are 0-5 straight up and against the spread. So they aren't even covering. They've lost 4 of their 5 games by double digits. They are the WORST.
You would have to be the biggest bird brain, butt-head, pin-head, block-head, knucklehead, meat-head, Meat whistle, moron, mutton-mouth, dope, duntz, ding-bat, dirt-bag, dork, cretin, simpleton, wife beater nincompoop, numbskull, jerk, jackass in the world to put American $$
OPPOSITE PICK: AKRON +14.5 = LOSE
5. FLORIDA +13.5 @ LSU
Tough playing Auburn/LSU back to back as the Gators are doing. But if you want to give me nearly two touchdowns in a game I can clearly see the underdog winning outright, I'll gladly take it. That was no fluke win over Auburn last week. Florida's defense was great stopping Bo Nix cold. Florida's allowed just 57 TOTAL points in 6 games.
Again, and now you are giving me 13.5pts in a game that figures to be low scoring? Gators h/c Dan Mullen is 17-8 ATS as dog with MSU & Florida. LSU is only 5-8 ATS last 13 home games. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Florida here.
OPPOSITE PICK: LSU -13.5 = WIN
6. ARMY -4.5 @ Western Kentucky
Big drop down in class for Army this week
after losing to a darn good Tulane team last week.
Cadets have still only lost 3 games in two seasons and two of those were OT setbacks @ Oklahoma & Michigan. I'll take my chances the rebound this week with a WK team that is playing with it's back up QB. After losing to Michigan earlier this season, Army responded with an 18pt road win over Texas San Antonio. Last year after losing to Oklahoma, the next week Army blew out Buffalo on the road by 29pts. Anybody notice a pattern here? LOVE Army laying the points.
OPPOSITE PICK: WESTERN KENTUCKY +4.5 = WIN
7. IOWA +3 vs. Penn St.
What's this? The BIV dyslexia is kicking in again. They have it backwards. Wrong team is favored.
Iowa's the home team
Iowa's on a 14-5-1 ATS run
Iowa's played real teams like Iowa St. & Michigan
Iowa has TRIPLE revenge on its side
Penn St. is the team that's had a cupcake schedule that Topeka high could be undefeated with. Love Iowa.
OPPOSITE PICK: PENN ST. -3 = WIN
Plumber update...rained yesterday.
Good news, no leak. Bad news I have a 4 foot
hole in the wall from the plumber who couldn't find the leak. UGHH. I'm going to have to get my youtube handy dandy video out and fix it myself.
I'm meeting with some people next week that will hopefully draw me closer to starting a podcast.
I'll keep you updated.
Thanks for a few more opposite picks orders.
I can't tell you how uplifting it's been hearing from everyone. It really does help make a bad situation a little more bearable.
One thing...don't take any of your anger out on my replacement, JT. We have many mutual friends and they all say he's a good guy. I have not listened, but many told me he's also paid me many compliments on the air. I appreciate that. Support him as you would support me.
This is the business. It can be great at times. And it can suck at times. As I've said on the air many times, you've never been in radio & TV until you've been fired. I understand your pain. Believe you me, I have it myself. But again, don't take it out on JT.
