2013 College Football Primer Week 9

I fought through a tough 3-5 week to get my overall record to 36-28-2 (56%), but I’m feeling good about this week.

ucla#12 UCLA +23 at #3 Oregon

Hundley vs. Mariota!  The punters will be rested.

The Gamecocks end the dream season.

#10 Texas Tech +6.5 at #15 Oklahoma

The Red Raiders prove their worth on the road in Norman.

#25 Oregon St +4 vs. #6 Stanford

Beavers get the upset at home.

Texas +2 at TCU

Texas has a straight line to a BCS bowl, and they have to get by the Frogs.

#9 Clemson -14 at Maryland

How does Clemson bounce back?  Lay 50 on Maryland. Continue reading

Jumbo’s NFL Betting Guide Week 6

Two straight .500 weeks has me sitting at 60% (44-30-3) for the season.  It’s still manageable, but I need to make some moves to get back to my desired 75%.  I started the week off 1-0 after taking the G-Men +8 at Chicago on Thursday.  Lets go.

Raiders at Chiefs -9 1pm CBS

raidersI always take the touchdown plus dogs vs. a division opponent.  Pryor is becoming a solid QB and he will give the Raiders a chance to win.

Eagles at Buccaneers Pick Em 1pm FOX

Eagles win big, but they lose 4 players to MRSA on this road trip.

Packers -3 at Ravens 1pm FOX

The Ravens got back to their running roots last week and it got them back on the winning train.  They keep it going this week vs. the Pack.

Lions at Browns -2.5 1pm FOX

The Browns defense is legit and they can hold the Lions with or without Calvin Johnson.

Panthers at Vikings -2.5 1pm FOX

Two bad teams play.  Take the home bad team.

Rams at Texans -7.5 1pm FOX

Matt Schaub is done, but the Texan defense is good enough to win this one big.

Steelers at Jets -2.5 1pm CBS

The Jets D-Line will be all over Big Ben today.  I see no way the Steelers don’t go 0-5.

Bengals -7.5 at Bills 1pm CBS

The Bengals offense hasn’t shown me enough to take them on the road as touchdown plus favorites.

Titans at Seahawks -13.5  4:05pm CBS

The Seahawks aren’t unbeatable at home, but they are close enough to beat the Titans by 2 TDs.

Jaguars at Broncos -27 4:05pm CBS

A 4 TD spread is a monster and I don’t think the backup Broncos will cover it in the 2nd half.

Saints at Patriots -2.5 4:25pm FOX

Back-2-back road wins will cement the Saints as the league’s 2nd best team.

Cardinals at 49ers -11 4:25pm FOX

I always usually take the touchdown plus dogs vs. a division opponent.  Not today.

Redskins at Cowboys -5.5 8:30pm NBC

Romo and the boys will score at will vs. the Skins.

2013 College Football Primer Week 7

After going 6-2 last week I’m sitting at 62% (31-19-2).  It’s in the black, but I’m reaching for 75%.  Here we go.

mizzuMissouri at #7 Georgia -9.5 12pm ESPN

The Tigers are one of the 2 unbeaten teams left in the SEC (Bama) and they take their talents to a banged up UGA today.  Both defenses have been feasted on through the air, and I see both Murray and Franklin having big games.

#12 South Carolina -6 at Arkansas 12:21 ESPN Gameplan

Be ready for an upset in Fayetteville today.  If the Gamecocks bring their turmoil with them from Columbia, it can happen.

Boston College at #4 Clemson -25.5 3:30pm ABC

Always to Clemson until they buck you.

#19 Northwestern at Wisconsin -10.5 3:30pm ABC

This line tells me that Vegas doesn’t respect the #19 Wildcats, but I do.  They face a tough BIG10 road test, and I see them passing it.  I’m going Northwestern for the win.

#17 Florida at #11 LSU -7.5 3:30pm CBS

The LSU offense will get its first big test of the season when the Gators come to town.  Look for the Florida offense to have nothing for the LSU defense and for the Tigers to dominate on both sides of the ball.

#2 Oregon -14 at #19 Washington 4pm FS1

Can the Huskies be more than a speed bump to the Ducks and give us a game to watch?  I think so.  I don’t see the Ducks losing, but CenturyLink Field will be maddening for this game, and that might be enough to keep the Huskies in it.
