Editor's Note--Well, that was quite the snappy start to the NFL season, eh? Minus the NY Football Giants, of course. The college is still getting warmed up. What's exciting is BigDick has decided this week to put up his college and pro selections in one post. That's 6 selections over the weekend that you can bite into. As the saying goes pal, run--don't walk--to the windows. Here comes some straight fire from the master....--R.B.
Yeah this college business is getting Big D perturbed, Richie. We've had about enough of one point losses. Not this week. Oh no. Let's go....
ARKANSAS STATE RED WOLVES go into the "big bad" U of Miami, "The U". This ain't your big brother's Miami team, and hasn't been for years. This ARKANSAS STATE team is no slouch, and gets it done on the road a lot. +16? Take pal. Take.
As many of you know we don't do this a lot, but FLORIDA seems to just always manhandle Kentucky. Yes they lay 18, but we think the GATORS are out to prove something this year. Kentucky extremely shaky on the road, and this isn't the easiest place for a shaky visitor to play. LAY IT pal. FLORIDA.
The Pesky WOLF PACK of NEVADA (some of us old timers still like to call them NEVADA-RENO, but whatevs....) has been good versus the spread pre and post Kaepernick. Arizona just not good laying big lumber. Ever. In the late game, NEVADA+17 friends. TAAAAAKE.
Come Sunday, off of our 2-1 NFL performance in Week 1, we like the following in Week 2:
MINNESOOOOOTA +3.5 vs New England Patsies. Hey, Brady and Billy Belicheck fans! Your team is not very good on the road. And hasn't been for awhile. As evidenced by last week's Big D top selection Miami. Now they play a pumped up, surprising, VIKING team, in their 1st home game, in their new outdoor stadium?!? Take again friend. Take again.
If that kid doesn't make a miraculous catch for a 30 yard TD, with 1 minute to go in the game, the Rayyyddduhhhhhs would've had 120 yards of offense instead of 150. Think about that. Now they play a very stout Houston defense? Houston hasn't found their offensive rhythm yet either. Anyone for a 6-3 final? Us too. UNDER!!
Finally, much has been made of the retooled, revamped, re-whatever, Bronco defense. Maybe you didn't watch that whole game Sunday night champ, cause you thought it was finito? Uh huh. The "backdoor" will be wide open with Denver all year baby. Now they lay 13.5 to KANSAS CITY?!? Sure KC didn't look great in Week 1, but 13.5?! Come on. Too many pal. Too many. TAKE!
So the happy Saturday recap: ARKANSAS STATE+16 @ miami, FLORIDA-18 vs Kentucky, NEVADA+17 @ Arizona.
The happy Sunday recap? MINNESOTA+3.5 vs New England, UNDER 39.5 Houston/Oakland, KANSAS CITY+13.5 @ Denver.
Enjoy all the games, may the calls all go your way, and god bless.
Now in honor of this song topping the charts around this day in 1973.....let's get it on!
