The week started rocky on Thursday night when Miami rolled into Blacksburg and worked the Hokies. That's Virginia Tech's third loss at home, the most since 1992. And this is a team that beat Ohio State in Columbus? What a year.
The most exciting game of the weekend was Ole Miss at LSU. Can't rule anything out during a night game in Death Valley. (Includes facemasks getting ripped off a helmet)
Another big-time schedule this weekend. Top teams squaring off all day. Auburn (2) vs. Miss St (3). Ole Miss (3) vs. Texas A&M (14). TCU (9) vs. Baylor (5). And don't sleep on Oregon (12) vs. UCLA. I was wrong about the line move, thinking the public would be heavy on Oregon. Hopefully the Streamers locked in UCLA +3 earlier in the week.
With that being said I think those big games have accurate lines. Gotta dig deep to find value this week.
When its Saturday night and my friends point out that one of the Stream's picks just lost:
Only one game on the Monday slate. The public will be on Oregon and this line may move up to +3.5 if you decide to wait. The Ducks are only 2-8 ATS in their last ten games (1-4 this year). I see a close game with the Bruins on saturday and will be taking the points.
One of the craziest Saturdays we’ve seen in a while. 20 favorites lost outright and many others barely hung on.
The wildest game might have been the Stream’s 2-unit play, Cal at Washington State. The teams traded scores all night and the defenses were virtually non-existent. Wazzu had the ball last and drove deep into Cal territory. Instead of going for the TD (and the cover), their chip-shot kick for the win sailed wide right. Heinous loss.
As for the best finish, it's a no-brainer. Arizona State beat USC on a hail mary with no time remaining.
