Do you like winning?? Without second thought, hell yes should have been your answer… and if you want to win this weekend, you came to the right place. I’ve had Ice water running through my veins lately and this weekend will be no different. Get to the window, and get ready to fill those pockets with some coin.
Cal @ Stanford / Stanford giving 8…
This Pac-10 beauty has the #17 Cardinal hosting the #25 Cal Bears. Sure, Cal brings in a wonderfully talented running back Jahvid Best, averaging 6.1 yds a carry and an impressive 12 TD’s. Only one slight problem, Best is out with a concussion. Sure, Cal was able to handle #17 Arizona last week, but Arizona hadn’t scored 139 points over the last 3 games destroying the #8 and #9 team in the country. That distinction belongs to the Jim Harbaugh led Cardinal. These future lawyers and doctors are crushing teams as of late, and that doesn’t stop this weekend. Giving only 8 to a Bestless Cal team… Cal is toast. Stanford wins this game by at least 17 making this win a breeze for us gamble Gaters. Take Stanford and enjoy the show.
Oregon @ Arizona / Ducks giving 6
Next up for my parlay pleasure, brings me back to the Pac-10 for some west coast delight. The Ugly Ducks of Oregon are traveling down to face off against the Desert Swarm. Big problem for the Swarm, they have yet to face a Top 25 this year and Oregon brings in the #11 team in the country and horrible uniforms. I am not sure which is going to be uglier, watching Arizona’s defense try to stop an offense averaging 37.1 PPG or the terrible yellow/green combination that Oregon wears on occasion (and what the hell are those feathers on their shoulder pads). Lagarrette Blount, the kid who threw the punch heard around the world, is back in the lineup for Oregon. I don’t anticipate seeing much of him, but Oregon isn’t going to need him to knock these guys out. Giving Arizona less than a touchdown, Oregon wins big. Take them and rejoice.
UConn @ Notre Dame / ND giving 6
Interesting game… The tubby Weis has his hands full with national speculation that he is out at the end of the year, and I don’t disagree. Mr. SuperBowl rings hasn’t done squat (and I mean nothing at all, not the exercise squats, although those are clearly not being done either) since taking the job nearly 5 years ago. He has some nice talent on that squad with more than a few guys moving onto a Sunday schedule in the near future. That just makes his failures even more concerning. All that talent, yet not one victory against a Top 20, ever, ouch big fella. An inspired UConn team comes to South Bend getting 6 points and I am all about it. UConn has lost their 5 games by a total of 15 points. Couple that with ND’s traditional Stanford match-up next week, and you have a recipe for a UConn win. This game being at ND makes no difference to me, UConn on national TV getting 6, I love it… Take UConn, look for the snotty nosed Weis to be whining on the sideline all day, and laugh all the way to the window as you collect your winnings, baby!!!
