Submitted by BeatOSU52 on November 17th, 2017 at 10:06 PM

Will have it by starting out posting the spreads in the top slate of games, including our rivals, if people want to chime in regardless if they have bets or not, and then post your official best bet games If put some action on or at least plan on it

Notable games:

Home team is designated with the @ sign and team favored to win is listed first :

@Wisconsin -7.5 vs Michigan,  Over/Under at 41

@Ohio St -41 vs Illinois

@Michigan St -15 vs Maryland

@Notre Dame -17.5 vs Navy

@West Virginia -3 vs Texas

@USC -16 vs UCLA

@Miami -19 vs Virginia

@ Wake Forest -1.5 vs NC St



Went a crappy 1-4-1 last week so looking to get back on track like from the week before (my picks are in bold)

Nevada at San Diego St  - over 56 points

Cal +14 @ Stanford

Army +3 (-120) @ North texas

@ Temple +14 vs Central Florida

@USC -16 vs UCLA

Virginia +19 @ Miami

Virginia +19.5 (Miami let down for an early game)

West Virginia -3 (still a shot to make BIG 12 title game, I believe)

Kentucky +21.5

Oregon -3 (only because it seems like a fishy line)

Vandy +8

Is probably a solid bet. I know the line seems ridiculous but I guarantee that Urban is on a mission to blow illinois out of the stadium (however tasteless that may be). I split 200$ between OSU-41 and MSU-15... Betting on our rivals baby!

** I actually bought a half of a point on each bet. Oh, and Sparty will win by 24 points, so that's easy money (I think that 15 point spread is the most attractive line of the weekend)

I like Tennessee to cover the +15.5 against LSU. Ol’ Brady’s a solid short-term turnaround coach, interims usually have some magic their first few games, and LSU is mediocre at best.

Durham Blue

NC St +1.5

Michigan +7.5

UCLA +16

UMass +4.5

Cincy - ECU OVER 75

LSU - Tenn OVER 45

Va Tech -16

Interested in UVA - Miami.  I hope UVA wins but if not I think they'll cover the 19 point spread.

I almost pulled the trigger on betting that Florida wouldn't get to six wins this season. I watched them fairly often towards the end of last season and came away thinking that they may have literally fielded the worst offense that I've ever personally watched in D1 football. I don't know how they can be that bad while residing in such a talent rich recruiting region

Exactly it's tough to imagine a name-brand being so terrible even though by the eye test they were abominable. It's always in the back of your head that they gotta turn it around at some point. Kind of like 2014 Michigan, except even worse. I imagine that bet would've voided though due to the cancelled game early in the season.

Like Ohio State to cover, also like them to go over their team total of 47.

Like MSU to stay under 29.5 team total.

Michigan hasn't given up 21 to anyone besides Penn St. Like us to keep Wisconsin under 24.
