    One side will win, one side will lose, and you will lose on the vig.

    Dammit. Fixed.

    In retrospect, a 6 a.m. local time kickoff didn't make much sense.

    What am I missing on those Miami and West Virginia lines? I even saw West Virginia at minus-1 last night.
    Both seem a bit low.

    Also, there's probably a good chance nothing gets played this week east of the Appalachians.

    I don't think the heavy stuff's gonna come down for quite a while.
    Fly, Flip Wilson and Jake_Taylor like this.

    Rutgers (+3) at Kansas, noon, Fox Sports Net

    Normally I wouldn't even think about Rutgers, but Rutgers with points against Kansas?

    Alabama @ Ole Miss is either going to be 49-45 or 49-7.
    Ole Miss offense isn't the problem, averaging 62 per game against Texas Tech and Southern Illinois.
    Their defense is not only optional, but discouraged, giving up 27 to Tech and 41 to Southern Illinois.

    Yes. Kansas won big but central had six turnovers.

    Give me Purdue +8 over Missouri. Purdue is 0-2 ATS. Mizzou is 2-0. All I need to know.

    Rutgers will win by 17.

    I'd feel like I needed a shower after betting that game.

    Miami was embarrassed on national TV so they’re undervalued now. They moved the ball well between the 20s against LSU. They’ll cover.
