Ya know, when I looked at that spread I have to ask "what were you guys thinking?" Just for conversation sake, ya know?
The first thing that jumps out to me is it's at Colorado, at night. What's the weather like in Boulder at the end of October (versus that of Cali?) Last night was their fourth road game of the season but their first win. They've been undefeated at home (I think they've covered three of four at home) but those three road games?
The moneyline, a nod to dope smokers, should have been your first clue.
@TerryP , here was my reasoning, which proved faulty but here it is. Colorado hasn't played well this season, but they've been real bad in the first half of games. In their previous two games they had 13 points total
Last week, the Trojans played Arizona and I thought they were almost as bad as Colorado on defense; USC had a 27-0 lead after the third quarter and led 17-0 at halftime.
The Trojans and the Buffalos have both lost all their road games up until last night. The Buffalos hadn’t scored 30 points against anyone.
I checked the weather and coldness was the only thing forecast. Supposed to be mid 40’s by halftime. It was 47 degrees at k/o.
I put all this together and it told me to bet the house on the Trojans and since the Buffalos are inept offensively plus the Trojans have a freshman QB, go with the under.
And after all that, I lost what, $2.5 mill?
I think I have the jinx going my way this weekend. If there’s any team y’all want to lose, I can probably help by placing a bet on them.
And as I type this Jalen and his Sooners are down 18! I took Jalen to cover.
