Is there any wonder...
why I'm going to stop betting on football? TCU looks like a surefire win, and they get their asses handed to them, and FSU's offense looks like complete crap against possibly the worst NC State team EVER. Florida State already has two ACC losses and we're only into the first week in October. Where's the "" website?

Anyway, Louisville is playing Middle Tennessee State tonight. I'm not putting money on it. If I'm betting at all (I've only got $11 left to bank on), I'm probably taking Arkansas +15 at Auburn. Auburn has Florida next week, so they may be looking ahead, and Arkansas has SE Louisiana, and they're coming off of a bye week. Or maybe Stanford, because they haven't even come close to covering a spread this year.

Nebraska looks awful, so they have no business being a touchdown favorite at Iowa State.

Oh well. I guess my $5 and a bucket of popcorn games will be as follows:

Clemson at Wake Forest (+17)
-- Wake Forest and Clemson have played to within a touchdown the past few times, except when Wake spanks em. Wake won last year 31-27 AT Clemson, lost the year before that by 7, and won at Clemson two years ago 45-17. It's a close rivalry, even though the oddsmakers don't want you to think that, and with Wake being 5-0 and at home, they'll be pumped for this game. Clemson may win, but Wake will cover.

West Virginia (-20.5) at Mississippi St.
-- The line opened at 28. It's down to 20.5. Are you kidding me? State has been atrocious so far this year. They haven't won at home. West Virginia is averaging 300 yards rushing per game. I think they'll cover three touchdowns easily.

San Diego St at BYU (-28)
-- San Diego St got beat at San Jose State last week by three touchdowns. BYU is a scoring machine. They throw the ball all over the place. And they play DAMN well at home. The last time BYU had a revenge game against San Diego St (who beat them last year), they won the following year 59-21. I'm going with BYU.

Comments: TCU is too prone to inexplicable meltdowns, I wouldn't bet on them with somebody else's money.
