Nurse the Hate: Hate Saturday's Action

Today I like UCLA -17 over Utah. UCLA is a much better team than people think right now, and Utah has failed to cover vs Oregon State and Air Force already this year. Last year UCLA beat them 31-10, and this is a better team looking to pad some stats.

I like Florida -8 over an overmatched Tennessee, Washington +4 over Ohio State, and East Carolina +2 over Southern Mississippi. Florida has too much team speed for Tennessee, and they'll lose just like they did to Cal. Ohio State can't score, and that's a problem. Washington should have enough at home. East Carolina is one of those teams that is a freaking covers machine. Love the Pirates!

Also, in what must be the first time all year, Josh Beckett is a +110 underdog at home vs the Yankees. The Yankees came back last night in an impressive win over the Sox (as a nice profitable underdog I might add), but Beckett has been nails. Wang is the Yankees best pitcher, but the Red Sox should be able to scratch out 3 runs to win today. The Red Sox really need this game today, or they're going to start up with all that "going down the shitter" talk in the Boston Globe and NE sports talk radio.

Two weeks to Jermain Taylor vs Kelly Pavlik...

You really know you stuff when it comes to wagering, but you did forget the first rule. NEVER refer to a game as a LOCK.

That moniker is reserved for the 900 number guys who offer their 5 star, shoe-in, back the brinks truck up, 110% iron clad automatic lock of the year, to steal the remaining credit card limits from the majority of loser gamblers who have become that desperate.

As for the NFL. The Browns win shows how unpredictable it is. Keep owning MLB and see you at the Ravari Room in Nov.

Tough week brother. CFB can be a tough nut to crack.

Good call on Florida though. They are very talented and VERY well coached. Pains me to say that, but facts are facts.
