Games did not go as predicted last week. That gave us some problems. The 1-4 mark after a 1-3-1 mark the previous week dropped us to 33-24-3. Hoping to rebound here.
Wyoming (+33) at Boise State: The Broncos are 0-4 against the spread on the smurf turf this season, failing to be a team by more than 20. Their offense has not been the machine it once was. Their defense has looked very average.
Tulsa (+3) vs. Houston: Vegas has been trolling for Houston bets. The true difference between these teams? Tulsa (8-3) played Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Boise State non-conference. Houston (11-0) did not.
Tennessee (-7) at Kentucky: Tennessee has Tyler Bray back. Kentucky has four wins, against Western Kentucky, Central Michigan, Jacksonville State and Ole Miss.
Kansas (+25.5) vs. Missouri: Can’t believe we’re doing this,
but Kansas has not been THAT bad at home. They are 4-2 against the spread but we’re not sold on Missouri putting a hurting on a team without Henry Josey. The Tigers have just one two touchdown or more win (Iowa State) vs. an FBS team all season.
Florida State (-2.5) at Florida: No faith in Charlie Weis’ ability to decidedly scheme around a top ten defense that specializes in stopping the run, especially with the amount of tryptophan still working its way through his system.
