Chip’s ‘Guaranteed’ 3-Pack w/ Pac-12 Game of Year
Washington State at Colorado 3:30 ET
Buffaloes (+) over Cougars- Colorado started the season 5-0 and was fantasizing about competing with the Pac-12 elite (If there are any) as they were 2-0 in conference defeating UCLA and ASU and then ‘Oh Lordy’ they played next four games and haven’t won since. Washington State meanwhile, is 8-1 and has ripped off five straight winners and are 4-0 ATS on the road. Coach Mike Leach said of last weeks narrow 19-13 win over Cal is ‘good for teams to play close games.’ I hope so Mike because ‘we’ have the Buffaloes and the points. Colorado will have receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. returns after missing three games all losses and the Buffaloes are 5-1 when he plays. In a tough one take COLORADO!
Temple at Houston 7:00 ET
Owls (+) over Cougars- Now, I have plenty of friends that go to Temple on Saturday and I will amongst then this week. Come-on now tell me what you first though when you saw this line…Ha, we;;, maybe you didn’t notice it and had no impulse. What, is las Vegas saying here? Houston has the flash and national attention they are 7-2 (off a loss to SMU) but they average 53.2 points per game at home and this ‘price’ is way too inviting. My question here right now is the health of QB D’Eriq King because he is unbelievable with 30 TD passes and only five int’s while the temple QB Anthony Russo has just 13 Tds with 12 INT’s. Hardly and even match. Maybe some ‘jersey’ types will have an influence on this outcome. But I will be in shock if the Owls don’t get the money. Take TEMPLE!
Northwestern at Iowa 3:30 ET
Hawkeyes (-) over Wildcats- Okay here we go in Big Ten West Division action where the leader Northwestern (5-1) is a double-digit underdog the (3-3) Hawkeyes in Iowa City. This is because the odds-makers see the Wildcats a step or two below what is expected and their numbers reenforce that belief as they point differential in virtually even. Iowa on the other hand is a plus +12 on a neutral field. This is enhanced when one realizes the Wildcats are 3-0 SU on the road but the visitor is just 2-6 ATS in this series and the favorite is 6-1 ATS. Take IOWA!
