This has been an unbelievable week for so many people. I hope this post provides some type of relief from Hurricane Harvey. My heart hurts for our community and I pray you and your family are safe, and if needed, have a speedy recovery.

No promises this week as I am still high off the Tulsa/OK State over, and the ridiculous halftime line (-10) they put up in the Ohio State/Indiana game. We will win longterm. Stay the course and be disciplined.

This year we will be playing everything at $55 to win $50 unless otherwise noted.

YTD Record (0-0)

Wyoming +12 @ Iowa 

I have no idea why Iowa pays Kirk Ferentz to coach. I think he is an idiot. Iowa typically does not perform well as a DD favorite at home, and they also have Iowa State next week. This is not a great spot for them. This is one of the biggest games Wyoming will play all year. They did lose some talent at key positions but they return QB Josh Allen- who will be a top 10 pick in next years draft. A lot of money is coming in on Iowa and the line is moving. I played it at 12- if it gets to 14 I might play it again. I’ll take my chances here with the Cowboys.

Florida State +7 @ Alabama (Neutral site game)

Florida State ML +225 ($25)

Listen, I love the SEC. I think Alabama could lose this game and win out the rest of the year. Much like Ohio State did a few years ago. If they lose this game I will make a future play on them next week  to win the National Championship. I think Florida State wants this game. They know the committee favors the SEC and a win over Alabama would be a huge feather in their cap. Add a couple of wins over Florida and Clemson and you are looking at the #1 team in the Country. Alabama lost a lot of players on defense. These are two evenly matched teams. I’ll take my 7 points and also make a play on Florida State to win straight up.

 

Western Michigan/USC Over 58

USC can name their score here. Even if they pull their starters in the 2nd half, they can still score. If Western Michigan gets 2 or 3 scores this game should go over. A 50-20 final would get us there. As a side note, I also have a ticket on USC to win the National Championship at 9-1.

Good luck this week. Remember it is a long season- do not go crazy in Week 1.

 I apologize for not having this up sooner. Thank you Harvey.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
