It's been a crazy last few weeks for me. I apologize for not providing recaps and updating the record. I will update everything this weekend. 2-2 last weekend. 

All plays $55 to win $50 

West Virginia / Texas Tech over 74.5 I think this is about 3 points too low. Both teams have played in primetime spots the last couple of weeks and neither looked great on offense. People forget these teams score points. 2 coaches that really like each other and will break out everything in the play book to get a win. The number is too low. 

Alabama - 19.5 1st half Saban is pissed. When he's grumpy, I'll roll with the tide. I'm not sure who he plays in the 2nd half. Arkansas sucks. I think it gets ugly fast. The Tide should cover three touchdowns in the first half. 

Duke +7 The Duke Miami game was closer than the score indicated. I'm not sure what FSU is playing for here. Duke should be able to hang in this spot. FSU is coming off a monster letdown. 

Chiefs/Texans/Patriots/Astros ML parlay ($25)

This week, ESPN released their post-NFL Draft power rankings and lo and behold, the Texans are out of the basement, ranked No. 28. Which is up from No. 32, when the first rankings came out post-free agency.

Another interesting note about the power rankings, the Jets are now behind the Texans after having what was considered to be an all-time great draft haul. Be sure to check out the video as we make sense of these updated rankings, and debate Texans vs Jags, Davis Mills vs. Zach Wilson, and much more!
