Editor's Note--Welp, I'm glad that all the people that are talking about the Jacksonville vs Seattle game last week are talking about fighting and penalties and suspensions. I'd like to talk about how the game was 3-0 at halftime and then had a final score of 30-24. No one seems to want to talk about that. I do. That cost us a winning week......Grrrrr.....And we're sorry for the tardiness this week, but if you ever saw a day in the life of Big D, you'll know the man is extremely busy. People vying for his time and such. Well, he's ready to roll with SATURDAY action! Lots of it. Here goes.--R.B.
Yes, Richie we thought we had a winning week too. But enough chatter, let's get to the pickin cause we're late.
MARSHALL is VERY sneaky. They are 7-5 but real good against the spread. Colorado State is also 7-5. They lay 5.5 in the New Mexico Bowl. Sure Colorado State is closer to New Mexico than the THUNDERING HERD, but we are here to tell you that's too many points. Take in the Saturday special!
On Tuesday, our friends from the MAC, the ZIPS of AKRONNNNN, travel to Boca Raton, FL for the Boca Bowl! Our own Richie B will be in attendance! Now Florida Atlantic has certainly earned it''s share of accolades this year. With that Lane Kiffin as coach. AND Fau is IN BOCA. They're playing a home game in a bowl! They're also laying 23 points. Say what?!? ZIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPS baby. Take.
Finally, in the inaugural Frisco Bowl 2 evenly matched teams play. The LA TECHs and the SMUs. The line is smu -5. Not sure why. They kinda come limpin in. LA TECH with the points next Wednesday, pals and palettes.
In the NFL, GRRRRR, we got some Saturday action! San Diego might go to the Super Bowl. Wait. What?!? Well, they could. After starting 0-4. Everyone talks about Rivers and Allen and their offense. Don't look now but their DEFENSE is good and getting better. Same with KC. It might be a little cold and windy yes? In Kansas City? Yes. UNDER 46.5 in this yuuuuuuge AFC West contest with no one talking big risks. Just win baby.
Um, yes, we are going back to the well again. How about this line? 3-10 SAN FRANCISCO minus 1.5 to 8-5 Tennessee. Yep you read that right. How about this? The 3-1 SF 49ERS. Whats that you ask? This fellow GAROPPOLO is 3-1 as a starter yes? Um, didn't he do that for the Pats last year when Tawmmmm Brady was suspended for deflategate? Um yes. Yes he was. There's a trend here folks. Lay it with this cat. 9ERS.
Finally, in the "high profile, but maybe not really too important" game of the week? Sunday Night? The Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaydddddddddddddduhs host how bout dem cowboyssssss! Snore. Snore. Snore. Something is up in both Big D (pun intended) and Oaktown. As in, the QBs might be off a little this year. Might be? Definitely be. 45.5 is the total. You know John Q. Public (also known as J.S. Ragman) will bet the OVER. We aint John Q. Public. Or J.S. Ragman. UNDER baby.
So the happy day recap: MARSHALL+5.5 vs Colorado State, AKRON+23 at Fau, LA TECH+5 vs Smu, UNDER 46.5 San Diego/KC, SAN FRAN-1.5 vs tennessee, and UNDER 45.5 Rayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyduhs/Cowboys.
Yes, we know we played these cats last week, but we really felt we were on the verge of a nice day. So we'll give them one more crack. Kudos to all of you who can name all the famous people in this video. A day in the life indeed. We're looking for a few good days in a row. Starting.....Now. Good luck. God bless.
