College Football (CFB) Place Your Bets!

For the 1st time since Week 1, I am over the Mendoza Line at 9 and 8.  Beware! This is still an Entertainment Only record.


Week 4 I'm doing an, 'I'm Going to Wake you Up Early" Beach Boys throw of the dice. Looking at the early spreads, I decided to park the Woody and get down before the lines changed. For the most part, in Week 4 I am on a Left Coast Surfin' Safari in honor of 8 ranked (!) Pac-12 teams,  


The ACC and Oregon came through for me last week. Prime did not cover but fortunately, Sheduer pulled off his best Tom Brady late-game heroic imitation so we have a match-up of two undefeated teams playing in Eugene on Saturday.


This week, in honor of the Conference of QBs, Surf's Up Ducks and Dudes!


Week 4 features 3 Pac-12 conference games featuring 6 ranked teams. Who knew, and how did 'Who' screw this up? 


UCLA +5 at Utah. Could anyone other than Coach Whit be 3-0 at this juncture? QB out. 2 2022 best receivers out. 2 top DL guys out. Best CB out. Kicker out. More guys than are on their Mission.


Rice-Eccles Stadium is a MUSS tough place for a visiting team to get a win. But, UCLA defeated Utah rather handily in 2022 in LA. And I am sorry to say that The One who escaped, Dante Moore, is the real deal. 


I think this will be a terrific game, going against the broadcast of the CU at Oregon game, but I like UCLA to cover coming into SLC with 5 points in the Chipper's favor. Florida brought no O to SLC. I think that Dante does the job and the Bruins cover.


USC -33.5 at ASU. Sorry, Week 5 Buffs, but I do not expect SC to be tested before Week 7 at Notre Dame. In the meantime, SC needs to put up massive points to keep the team and Caleb Williams in the spotlight. ASU QB Rashada is hurt. ASU scored ZIP points at home vs. Fresno State and lost 29-0.


This is a big line but Dilly has a massive rebuild job on his hands. 


USC covers.


Washington -21 vs. Cal. Idaho is a good FCS team. But Cal found itself down 17 - 0 before fighting back. I think the Penix Heisman Express keeps on rolling here and the Huskies easily cover the -21. WOOF! (I hope you have fleas!)


OREGON -19,5 vs. Colorado. Another huge spread especially against an undefeated team. But even before all-world Travis Hunter got cheap-shotted, I think the Ducks would have won this game by close to 3 scores. 


The whole CFB world, except for Bruins and Utes fans, will be watching. I think OREGON will win this game by 25 to 30 points. (GULP.)


Oregon State -2.5 at Washington State - I think WSU's Cam Ward is the better QB in this game. Forget the points, I'm taking Wazzu on the Money Line +124. Wazzu has a win over an at-the-time-ranked Wisconsin team. Oregon State has yet to play a P5 team. Left behind Wazzu is as motivated to win this game as is Left Behind Oregon State.


If the game was in Corvallis I'd be going the other way but on The Palouse, I think under-Cougar Wazzu wins. And at +124 that's a heck of a Money Line payout.  


May the best Pac-2 team win!


OK, I am getting off my surfboard and tripping East for two games.


Oklahoma -14 at Cincinnati. Cincy was last seen losing to Miami-Ohio at home. Oklahoma behind QB Dillion Gabriel is lighting it up. I see a pasting here Sooner rather than later and OK easily getting the cover. (I also see the Sooners upsetting Texas in the last B12 Red River Rivalry game. (How great does the TX W at Bama look today?)


UNC -5.5 at Pitt. Drake Maye and the UNC passing game woke up and sunk Fleck's row boat. Pitt was last seen trying to find an offense in West Virginia. To date, Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi is not doing a very good job auditioning for the Michigan State job. (And last season's Pitt starting QB Kedon Slovis, now at BYU, just took down the Hogs on the road. Another SEC P5 OOC loss. I'm heartbroken for good ole' Pawel.)


Reviewing the Week 4 bidding. 


UCLA +5 at Utah


USC - 33.5 at ASU


UW -21 vs. Cal


OREGON -19.5 vs. Prime Time


Washington State vs. Oregon State -  Wazzu -Money Line +124 winner.


Oklahoma -14 at Cincinnati


UNC - 5.5 at Pitt


Before you bet, make certain that you can lose and still balance your checks.
