    Not good that GS can't cover these receivers. Adams had a couple incredible plays vs. KSU. And almost had the best catch of the year but was pushed OOB and lost it at the end. Battling though.

    They appear to be keeping a safety over the top on Adams and 1:1 against this dude Green who's hurting them. Ark does G. ST. a favor by running

    That dude's a moron for not just hightailing it to the sideline.

    Yeah the only saving grace is I can't imagine they'll hit this many perfect down field throws in the second half.

    Ya Sir! G. St. up 7!
    I often think about taking the other side at this point and just sitting back knowing I got a win--but I don't.

    For example, I can take ARK +135 for the win now.

    EDIT: Just bet the under at 103.5. LOL

    Rough night last night. Should've just bet the over. 72+ points is tough to stomach sometimes. 87 total after the third quarter.

    It's hard to separate college from the pros sometimes.

    Obviously nothing's a lock but I don't understand this SMU game tonight. Only -6.5? Not travelling that far. Tulane is 0-2 against AAC teams including their disgusting loss against Navy and getting blown out by a Houston team that hasn't played a game yet (and spotted them 3 touchdowns via turnovers in the first half). They are also starting a true freshman while SMU starts Buechele who was considered to be a bottom 10 Heisman candidate because of the video game numbers they put up.

    Note - SMU lost their top receiver and runningback against Memphis. But I don't see how this isn't a 45-21 track meet for them. Maybe I'm wrong.

    That 2QB thing really works for Ark St. Did u see the graphic they presented comparing their combined passing stats with Trevors? Combined their stats are amazing.

    Sounds like you have it figured out for SMU. According to Vegas Insider (don't know if good source), game opened at -9 and has shrunk to -6.5. Meanwhile ML has expanded from -225 to -245.

    This tells me its a tight game but SMU comes out on top. Bet the ML IMO.

    Yeah that two QB thing has worked for them. I usually never trust analysts when they talk about college defenses but everything I read yesterday kept talking about GSU's pass rush so I bought in. The pass rush honestly was pretty good too. Hatcher and Bonner just slid perfectly every time. And they hit damn near every deep throw they made.

    Could be. The loss of Robinson and their back hurts SMU and Tulane played them tough last year and then got blown out in the 4th quarter. I felt like this line should've been cemented at -10. I'll take a look though - there could possibly be bad weather?

    I'm a data analyst/researcher at a university--data scientist they call it these days. I went to Stony Brook. Born in Long Beach, lived several places in Nassau County and Queens.

    SMU gives up a 3rd and fucking 39 on a go route. Muffed a punt after two sacks to start the game and missed a field goal. Unreal. You were right @IDFjet

    @IDFjet what you got today?

    Looking at South Carolina +3 or 3.5. Not in love with it though it seems like everyone's trendy pick today and I haven't seen them play yet. Auburn is a mess.

    Late I'm going to roll with Alabama. Gotta get
    here first though lol. Also like NC State again at 3:30 this week -4.

    Very wary of SC as well. I like Texas A&M but not at -190. I may bet that game live hoping Miss ST jumps out to a lead.
    So far, this is what I got.
