    @POPO2012, I hope I'm not stepping on your toes by starting this thread, but I'm going to be in Vegas for the Week #13 NCAAF games and I am jonesing to make some bets.

    My favorite game to wager right now is Western Michigan -9.5
    This game (hosting Toledo) determines who sits atop the MAC West. Toledo can really put up some points, so I'll keep any eye on the Over/Under too as Friday approaches.

    Other bets I'm considering that I'd love feedback on (these are early lines posted on vegasinsider.com as of 11/20):
    Iowa -2.5
    Washington -5
    Florida State -7
    Utah Money Line (this one is probably dumb)

    What do y'all think about Michigan @ Ohio State? If Speight starts, do you like Michigan +6?

    Very cool Jimbo you'll need some games for this weekend. I haven't started digging yet but I will by the middle of the week to hopefully help out. Michigan State gives the Buckeyes fits every year no matter. That being said Harbaugh hasn't shown well against Urban. The smaller the spread shrinks the more I would bet on the Buckeyes. I haven't seen anything on Speight being able to play and Buckeyes defensive secondary is extremely good. I'm with you all the way on Western Michigan. Toledo is tough but W. Michigan is an exceptionally good football team this year.

    Nailed it with USC-UCLA last week and going back to the rivalry game well this week with Arizona State -3 at Arizona. The Wildcats are bad, really bad. The Sun Devils are a flawed team but can make a bowl game with a win, and Todd Graham would like nothing more than to change the season's narrative with a blowout win here.

    I'm glad you pointed out this pick, InDaGreen. I'm liking Arizona State -3.

    Having watched this rivalry for years I am taking Arizona ML. These teams hate each other and relish the spoiler role. To make me feel better about this bet:

    As recently as 2011, ASU(6-4) lost to a (2-8) UA team 31-27 in Sundevil Stadium. UofAZ won last year when they were both ranked.

    Heres the history with records:

    Alrighty Jimbo looks like you're arriving in Vegas soon. I'm going with South Carolina +24 as my favorite of the week. My second for the week is Washington -7 at Washington State. Finally homer game of the week is Buckeyes laying -6 to Wolverines.

    Thanks for sharing!
    I plan to bet both Washington -6 and Ohio State -6.5. I hadn't considered South Carolina +24, but I'll look into it now.

    I should get to Vegas around 10pm Pacific Time tonight.

    Michigan's QB's status is huge in that one. I arrive Friday night; if its +6.5, I may lean toward buying the half point to 7 and taking the points. Kickoff will be in the mid-upper 30's, so I think the under is a good look too. I'm interested in the USC/ND game...17 is a big #, but ND has looked suspect all year. Other games, Wisc -14.5 at home against Minnesota (likely buy the hook) and Navy -7 at SMU.
    I'm gonna spend all day Saturday in the sports books! Cant wait!
