We’ve a slew of games over the next few days. We’ve plenty of leanings in games from a casual perspective, but only a couple we feel strongly about. In analyzing ourselves over the past year, we’ve refined out techniques to operate on quality rather than quantity.
We showed this in only choosing five NFL games Sunday and winning four of them. We also said to load up on Baylor and were vindicated.
Here is what we suggest coming up:
Thursday 4pm Oklahoma Sooners -3′ (moderate bet)
Saturday 6:45pm Texas Christian Horned Frogs PK (moderate bet)
We actually would lean heavier on TCU than Oklahoma.
We understand there are a bunch of games begging to have some action, so here is a list of our casual leanings – for entertainment purposes only.
Notre Dame +6′, Oklahoma State +7, Kansas State +13
Happy new year!
*******UPDATE****** 8:20am EST on 12/31
Trevone Boykin, QB TCU, was arrested last night. If he doesn’t play in the game, that changes everything. If you’ve already bet on TCU, you may still have time to hedge before there is a line change. You could bet Oregon now while it is still a pick and if Boykin doesn’t play, you can wait until TCU is getting about 2′ points and then take them. You might hit in the middle and hit both ways. We do think TCU can still win this game without Boykin, but we can’t predict the psychological impact his loss would have on the team. Of course, TCU could do the “innocent until proven guilty” and allow him to play.
