    Mods feel free to move this whenever. Figured I'd put it here to get some eyes on it since the NCAA forum is usually dead any time that's not the draft.

    Anyone have any good insight or picks today? I like NC -23. Big spread but Syracuse didn't practice for a lot of the summer by way of players choice. Arkansas State +10.5 is interesting too considering KSU hasn't even declared a full time QB yet.

    You mind if I add NFL to the title and sticky it to BS Forum after the thread spends 2 days here on the main forum?

    Not at all. Figured I'd give it a shot since sports betting is legal in a number of states now. :)

    I just took a loss on clemson -31 1/2--I use bovada and made the bet when clemson was up 17-0. Dabo doesnt usually blow out as he lets all the boys play--still, I thought the 2nds and 3rds would outplay wake. Won on Gtech over Fl. State tho.

    The Georgia Tech game is the only game I lost today along with a $10 long shot bid on Duke ML.

    I had...
    Arkansas State +10.5
    Arkansas State ML Live +900
    North Carolina -23
    Louisville -13.5
    Florida State -12.5

    Interesting start to college football I stay away from massive spreads week 1 usually.

    I literally said the same thing to my friend yesterday. I did so well in college I'm going to get crushed in the NFL today. Good call on the TB NO over I'm going to grab that.

    I'm in on the Bengals +3 today as home dawgs. They fixed the defense and the offensive line is healthy + Burrows.

    I took my two games straight up and in a 6 pt teaser.

    I can't bring myself to bet on the Bengals hahaha. I don't think home field matters that much this year except when it comes to traveling. Good luck though.

    About to head to our local game room and drop $200 and $100 on 3 separate 3 team parlays.

    $200
    Baltimore over Cleveland by -7.0.
    San Francisco over Arizona by -7.0.
    Dallas over Rams by -2.0.

    $100 (upset/underdog special).
    Jets over Bills ML.
    Packers over Vikings ML.
    Buccaneers over Saints ML.

    I'll become a very happy man if I hit just one of the two.

    I'm not sure why you'd ML the Bills @ -290 when it doesn't even PAY OUT well. PS Buffalo lost 4 of their last 5 games last year and went 1-5 against teams with above .500 record by seasons end. They are being overrated. The Jets on the ML is where the real value bet is @ today because Sam Darnold is going to ball out and Bell is going to look REALLY GOOD behind this JD offensive line. I will never bet my money on Josh Allen and the trash ass Bills who just blew a huge lead during their Wild Card game.

    I agree I don't think I did a great job at maximizing this week--but I still think I'll cash. These are the best 3 i saw this week.

    I'm rooting for the jets bro--I'm realist enough to bet against Gase--I 1/2 expect they won't even be ready to play

    I personally feel the Ravens over Browns. Cowboys over Rams and 49ers over Arizona are the best 3 picks for today.

    Trouble is those 3 make too much sense--something is going to go wrong

    Well my $100 ticket with Jets, GB & TB went to crap because our lovely underdog Jets lol would have paid 1,742 all 3 ML upsets.

    The only hope I have is my main ticket that I expected to really hit $200 for 1,232 on all favorites Ravens currently beating dog shit out of Browns then 49ers and Dallas and I'll have an awesome Sunday with a profit of almost 1k today with or without the Jets both 49ers and Dallas can give me a fun Sunday of winning

    Let's go San Fran!!!

    $200 for $1,232 ($932 profit for the day invested $300 on two tickets).

    Baltimore Ravens -7 = won and covered.

    San Francisco -6.5 over Arizona (coming on right now).

    Dallas Cowboys -2.0 over Rams for my $$$$ game.

    Jets lost. Oh well. I'll take the $ and still celebrate tonight. Fkem. On Thursday $300 on a 3 pick for $1,800+ I got for and tonight going for $932 profile and $1,232 in return and I'll become a very happy gambler let's go San Fran!

    I just laid 7 and took the 49'ers next week on Bovada. I'm shocked the line is so low. I don't understand why. Is it a trap?
