Vegas is being sneaky. We held off Friday night’s game of Purdue and Ohio because the line didn’t make sense. How could one not bet on Purdue? They were barely favorites at home on a lesser opponent who had critical injuries. The public loaded up on Purdue. Why would Vegas allow this?
They’re setting us up. All of us. You. Me. Billy Bob. All of us. But, how long will they continue to draw us in? There are some apparent gimmies on Saturday, but they have to be fool’s gold, right?
I’m just not sure. Normally later in the season it is the fool’s gold we’re so good at identifying. But this season this early on we’re just not sure.
Anyway, here’s our picks:
Noon East Carolina +24′ Nominal (We don’t blame you if you play WVU.)
Noon Iowa State +3 Nominal
3:30pm MTSU +10′ Casual
8pm Rice +1′ Nominal
8pm Baylor -15′ Casual
