The NFL is back and Kate Upton has come home

Please do not forget about Hurricane Harvey and the devastation that Hurricane Irma is about to cause. I am running insurance claims (adjusting) 18 hours a day and still can not get to everyone that needs help. These storms are terrible, and I urge you to please give/donate whatever you can. People are hurting and we should continue to rally around one another. 

Recapping last week we ended up 1-3.

YTD Record (1-3) (-$85)

Wyoming +12 @ Iowa (L) It was 7-3 with 25 seconds left in the 2nd quarter when the punter dropped the ball on the 30 yard line. Iowa scores a touchdown on the next play. Josh Allen looked terrible.

Florida State +7 @ Alabama (Neutral site game) (L)

 Florida State ML +225 ($25) (L) 7-3 game in the 3rd. Blocked punt and Alabama gets the ball on the 10. Fumbled kickoff, Alabama gets the ball on about the 15. 2 consecutive interceptions. That was 4 consecutive FSU drives. Not to mention the missed pass interference call in the end zone right before the half- leading to a blocked FG. I’ll fade Alabama in the playoffs. They will lose eventually. I am not as impressed as everyone else.

Western Michigan/USC Over 58 (W) I said 50-20. It ended up being 49-31. Good enough. I’m higher on USC than most. I think they get better.

Moving on…

When the NFL starts I always play a 10 point 3 team teaser. Some people think they are stupid. I like them, and they make me money. So every week I will have one. This is the only disclaimer I will mention about them this season. Just be prepared to see them. They are all (-120) juice- so we will risk $60 on these to win $50

3 Team 10 point teaser Risking $60 to win $50

Pats +1 Tom Brady is like 4,158-1 against the AFC in the regular season. THIS IS THE THURSDAY NIGHT GAME

Texans +4.5 The Jags suck. If the Texans lose this O’Brien should be fired Monday.

Auburn +15.5 Held Clemson to 19 points last year. I think they can win. Give me 15.5.

All other plays standard $55 to win $50

Nebraska/Oregon OVER 68.5 Oregon beat Southern Utah 77-21 last week. Nebraska beat Arkansas State 43-36. Both teams have no idea how to tackle. Both teams can score points. Last year Nebraska won 35-32. I think it goes over.

Wisconsin – ? 1st half vs Florida Atlantic. The line will be released some time tomorrow. It will be around 20. When it is released we will play it. I will update the post when I see it. The full game line is -31.5. Come kickoff Hurricane Irma should be doing damage to Florida. I have no idea how FAU can focus. Wisconsin is very good. This could get ugly.

Giants +4 @ Dallas I think Dallas takes a huge step back this year. I am high on the Giants. They play well at Jerry World. I hate the Cowboys. Take the Texans in a teaser. Fade the Cowboys. Karma, I like it.

Other games I looked at hard: Texans/Jags under. Tenn/Oak Over. Philly/Wash Over. Wash -1. USC/Stanford Over. Oklahoma +7.5. Oklahoma/Ohio State Over. Penn State -20. New Mexico State +7.5

Remember most dogs that cover in the NFL end up winning straight up around 70% of the time. Example: If you are playing Chargers +3.5 against the Broncos, 70% of the time the spread never comes into play. The Chargers win the game straight up. Just a note. I am not saying play the Chargers. Just a quick tidbit dealing with the NFL and dog spreads. 

Good luck.

The Houston Texans coaching search has looked much more promising this season, with the team in the mix to hire a top candidate on the market, such as Sean Payton or DeMeco Ryans.

How quickly things can change. FS1's Colin Cowherd sent shock waves through Houston on Wednesday when he opened his show talking about dysfunctional ownership based on his recent conversation with Sean Payton. Which has everyone thinking Payton was talking about the Texans, and the chances of Houston hiring him are now slim to none.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dissect his comments and make a case that Payton could still be very interested in the Houston Texans job.
