So maybe we'd all like something else to talk about. I looked through the lines for this weekend's games and found a few that looked like winners to me. I generally look at jimfeist.com, but if you see a better line somewhere, shoot it out. Here are the ones I like. Anyone else see any winners out there?
New Mexico State over Idaho. NMSU -3
UNDER on Georgia at Oklahoma State. 61.5
Ball State over North Texas. BSU -16.5
Illinois over Missouri. Illinois -7
UNDER on Illinois at Missouri. 61.5
Army over Eastern Michigan. EMU -4.5
Wisconsin over Northern Illinois. Wisconsin -16.5
Purdue over Toledo. Purdue -11
Auburn over La Tech. Auburn -13
OVER SJSU at USC. 48
I acknowledge that I appear to be a bit of Big Ten homer. I guess you're more comfortable with what you know.
My favorites are NMSU over Idaho. NMSU has a new coach from UCLA and 12 jucos. Idaho is rebuilding constantly and were equally as bad as NMSU last year, so going with the home team in essentially a toss up seems logical.
Georgia / OK State is another one I feel good about. UGA is breaking in a new QB and RB so I don't expect them to fire out of the gates and UGA has a solid SEC D that should be able to contain OK State to some degree. Getting the total to 60 seems unlikely.
Toledo was god awful last year and I see no reason to think they'll be any better. Purdue is nothing special, but a two touchdown win is not at all a lot to ask.
