    :drunk:Is anyone interested in sharing their favorite week 1 college game to lay some money on. My favorite is Houston +10 at home as a ranked dog against Oklahoma. I love home dogs. Oklahoma and Stoops have a long established history of stumbling in big games. :beer:

    That is my favorite as well and is up to 11 at my book

    My next favorite is under 62.5 - Clemson/auburn

    That's a ton of points considering auburn is breaking in new QB - and I look for Auburns D to play with some home pride before Clemson wears them down

    I don't know. Something about that number is telling me to bet Oklahoma. Seems too high. I usually do pretty well betting on lines that appear to make no sense, and Houston giving double digits in its home city (I know it's not quite at "home") makes no sense.

    I'll stick with Louisville -39.5. That line is silly high, but if Lamar Jackson is even half as good as the hype he's been getting, this one should be covered by halftime.

    I got Clem -7 and Notre Dame -3.5 on a two-teamer. Hoping Clemson plays with a chip on their shoulder and Auburn's off field issues are a distraction.

    ND clobbered Texas last year and I thought the Longhorns O was one dimensional. It's a new year so I am probably wrong.

    Clemson -8 (now) is my fave for the week. They might be the best team in the country, against an Auburn team that's down. Two TD game eash.

    Wisconsin +10. LSU Usually tanks one game why not this one. I sent money to go on Wisconsin on the moneyline +450 was too tempting.

    FWIW i am from Wisconsin

    I hate to see you lose your money. At least take the points.
    LSU returning 18 starters and LY QB. Wisconsin returning 12 and a new QB.
    This is not the game LSU is going to lose.

    not sure i like my buckeyes giving 28 to bowling green. BG will be a pretty good football team this year and OSU has tons of new starters. i believe last year both mac teams we played covered but if urban can hang 60 on someone, he will definately do it.
     
    gonna be a two royal trip!!

    SC/Vandy UNDER 42.5 - Neither team can score and have good defenses.
    Iowa State -7 (might be up to -9 now) vs. UNI - ISU is better than last year which beat UNI 31-7. I predict a similar score this year.

    Mark the Shark on 97.1 (today) was discussing Buckeyes question marks in secondary. I was more concerned with how tough MAC teams always play Buckeyes so I dodged this one. I hope they remain dogs to Oklahoma. I want some of that action

    Not that it's any kind of guarantee but they'll just plug in a few more high school all americans. I'm anxious to see how wrs do and see if Weber is real deal. Young offensive line will make or break this team
