We are back again for another installment of our weekend best bets. After a 11-7-1 week last week the overall record jumps to 58-44-3 right around 55 percent for the entire year. Looking to make the percentage go up a bit after this week. Let’s get started!
NCAA Week 10 Best Bets:
Western Kentucky v. Middle Tenn. State Friday 8pm: MTSU -14 and over 53
I really like this spot for the Blue Raiders. They historically have been good at home in November and later games, especially against opponents that are sub .500. WKU comes in at 1-7. Don’t expect them to hang around too long. Blue Raiders and the over here.
Michigan State v. Maryland 12pm: Michigan State -3
This pick is basically just a fade on the Maryland football program right now. The terps are in shambles, combine that with the fact Michigan State got a pretty big win last week against Purdue and I think the Spartans cover easily here.
Memphis v. ECU 12pm: Over 65
Everyone betting this game is on the over, why not join in. I mean 96% of bets and 99% of the money right now is on the over. Lets ride or die with the public on this one.
West Virginia v. Texas 3:30 pm: West Virginia +2
Texas made people believe they were back again these last few weeks but that ended with their loss to Oklahoma State. This West Virginia offense is high powered and can score in buckets. I think the Mountaineers win outright this week so the moneyline could be worth taking a look at as well.
Alabama v. LSU 8pm: Alabama -14
I feel obligated to make a pick on this game this week. It is by far the biggest game we have had this year. I have said on here before, why would anyone be betting against Alabama right now? I am sticking to my guns on that. Alabama is flat out the better team. Will be their toughest game to date but they are just flat out better, and I don’t think this LSU offense can score enough to stay in this one. Alabama wins 38-17
Other NCAA Best Bets
Liberty v. Umass 3:30 pm: Liberty +1.5
Nebraska v. Ohio State 12pm: Ohio State -19
Duke v. Miami 7 pm: Duke +9.5
Iowa St. v. Kansas 12p: Iowa State – 15
Louisville v. Clemson 12pm: Over 61
NFL Week 9 Best Bets
Chiefs v. Browns 1pm: Over 52.5
The number one offense in the league going against a bottom tier defense/secondary. The Browns coming off a coach firing. I expect the Chiefs to do their part to cover the over, lets hope the Browns add some points to that.
Bucs v. Panthers 1pm: Panthers -6.5
This Panthers team looked great last week against what was supposed to be one of the NFL’s premier defenses. The Bucs are hoping for some Fitzmagic this week, but I am not falling for that again like some will. Panthers easily cover at home.
Steelers v. Ravens 1pm: Under 47.5
A rivalry game here that has the history of going under. 4 out of the last 5 in Baltimore have gone under. I like that trend and see this one being a tight low-scoring game.
Titans v. Cowboys Monday 8:30 pm: Titans +5.5
This is a spread that tells us people are high on this Cowboys team and low on the Titans right now. I am going to buy low on the Titans. Also I do not believe this Cowboys team is as good as some people may. People love betting the Cowboys, fading the public and taking the points. Also going to give the Titans ML a nice look sitting around +200 right now.
Other NFL Best Bets
Lions v. Vikings 1pm – Vikings -5.5
Falcons v. Washington 1pm – Washington -1.5
Texans v. Broncos 4:05 – Broncos PK
Jets v. Dolphins 1pm – Jets +3
