    Who do you like this week?

    My pick last week (FAU -3) lost due to a last minute TD by MTSU. Boo!

    This week I like LSU -2.5 at Florida.

    Ok, not sure if it’s money in the bank, but I do like Texas +8. Also like Utah +5.5 at Stanford. And for your “Why in the hell are you watching THIS game?!?!?” pick, I’m giving out UTSA getting 2 from Rice.

    Went 0-2 on my picks last week; I too was on Florida Atlantic. Damn you, Lane Kiffin! 4-7 for the season. I hope I can break even this week. I really need the money.

    I think everyone except the sports books are on LSU...yet the line has moved from an open of -3 1/2 down to I see some -1 1/2 now. This means of course either the books are trying to lure in more LSU money and have the game fixed, or as some choose to believe, a lot of money coming in on Florida? Say it ain't so?? Who in their right mind would bet on Florida in a game like this? Playing a road proven winner ranked number five? Florida's quarterback is error prone and erratic, the top running back is coming off a year long suspension for stealing from the gift shop, and well, LSU also has speed on defense. I just wonder some times how to figure out these games. Good Luck you LSU bettor's but I got a feeling the game is in fact some weird way fixed...

    My selections..................(avoid LSU vs. Florida, game might be fixed...word also is that Florida Coach Mullen smacked LSU last year which has driven the line down)

    Cincinnati -7 vs Tulane

    Auburn - 3 1/2 vs Mississippi State

    Florida State + 14 vs Miami(Florida)

    Good Luck. It's only money.

    I know right! Two coaches with tens of millions of dollars to lose not to mention being permanently banned from every level of the coaching profession have fixed the game! You should call the FBI if you have a shred of evidence they'd be very interested in your info.

    I don't recall mentioning the coaches involvement? or even that I suspected same. I only stated what is obvious, everybody likes LSU yet the line moves towards Florida. The standard explanation is the ole "sharps vs public" nonsense but I don't believe that as is tied into selling picks. So what we have is perhaps some aspect helping Florida, something which only the books know. This doesn't make it a guaranty, only, an advantage to Florida bettors.

    All the cappers on all the gambling forums are on Florida, so what does that tell you? Go opposite and take LSU. I got my bet in early so I’ll just sit and enjoy the game! GLTA!

    LSU/Florida is a "don't make sense" line move.
