Wow, I took a drubbing. Not only did none of these favorites cover the spread, they all got beat outright.

It was the only O/U line I could find on the game. Got it from my “Score” app.

Oops just as I posted that I checked vegasinsider again and they have 71 and 71.5.

 

As long as it’s under 100, I feel good about it :lol:

Well you have two pretty prolific offenses and at least one pretty poor defense, so.....

Normally I’d run from anything over low to mid 60’s but I’m not picturing either team scoring less than 35. And that’s on the low end.

I literally would’ve taken the overs if it was 80. But I was also 0-3 last week :lol:

JJ, it sounds good but keep in mind that it might not be.

 

Top 5 scoring teams with their W-L record with a combined score (over) 72 points in a game

 

Alabama 2-6
Houston 5-3
Utah State 5-3
OU 4-4
UCF 2-5

 

Ohio State is around 7 or 8th scoring (2-6)

 

I've won that point total once, got burned a different time. 

 

I'd stay away (71pts) even if it could be close to it or better, in a super shoot-out world.

I agree with you in theory and practice but I just can't see this matchup going any other way than a high scoring shootout. If we had a defense I might feel differently. I have little doubt tOSU will score their share and feel pretty good that we will also. I hope I'm right because if I'm wrong, I don't think it will bode well for NU at all.

Hate Iowa, but love this Iowa State football team.  I've liked them the past 4 or 5 years. 
Every week I want to wager them but long days at work (including saturdays) keep me away.


Give me the Under in this one (at Texas 50.5).  My other 2 picks pending.


UT is a FG favorite but I think ISU wins.  My pick on that part is pending, but favoring ISU with the points (or win outright as they should).  Check their schedule/results.  Not too shabby

Should’ve backed off that Over when I saw the weather report. No excuse for the Illinois pick, I’d do it again.

Running out of time to finish above .500 (I wonder if that's how Mike Riley always feels in November :lol:)

Well more of the same for me....

1-2 again, 17-20 for the year.  If it was 110/100 per game I’d be out $500 for the season so I guess this thread saved me some money.
