ONE DAY IN THE BOOKS & PLUS ONE IN THE WIN COLUMN!
A win and push to open the season put us ONE UP in the “W” column to start the 2010 College Season.
Of course, we had the easiest kind of winner as S. Carolina (-13) manhandled Southern Mississippi in a blowout. That game was never close. That’s the way we want to win them all. We got a little unlucky in out second game. We had Utah -3 over Pitt. The Utes opened a solid 10 point lead, but then went into armadillo mode and tried to coast home. Of course, you can’t do that with a team as powerful as Pitt so the Panther’s came back. The 3-point final as a push against the spread for a Utah team that dominated most of the action.
SATURDAY WE SEE TRENDS…
Missouri has Illinois’ number, it seems. The Tigers have chewed up the Illini against the spread in their last 5 meetings. Missouri 5 Illinois 0.
Utah State is a weak road team They are only 1-12 in their last 13 road games. They travel Saturday to play Oklahoma State.
Much more dangerous on the road are the Oregon State Beavers, who have gone undefeated against the spread in their last 5 road games. OSU travels to TCU Saturday.
Two schools with widely varying spread trends clash Saturday when UCONN travels to Michigan. UCONN has won 5 spread games in a row on the road while Michigan is on an 0-5 spread streak from its last 5 games of 2009.
AND SATURDAY’S BIG PLAY IS………
Can you believe it’s wall to wall TV football Saturday? Phantom Sports Picks knows it’s always more interesting to be able to watch the games you’re betting on. So, we’re revving it up SATURDAY WITH A TV DAY-NIGHT PARLAY.
