5 Games You Must Bet This Weekend 10-18-08
5 Must Bet Games!
This football season has been extremely exciting on both the NFL and the college level. Teams we are watching this week: The University of Buffalo is nearing bowl eligibility. Stanford is a force in the PAC 10. Georgia Tech is 4-0 ATS this season and has a great shot at the ACC regular season title. So without further pause, here are five must bet games this week in football.
Army @ Buffalo (-11.5): Buffalo is a really solid team, especially on defense, and they’re looking to hit their first bowl this year. Army is one of the lower teams in the country, but they did win last week. They also didn’t complete a pass. Not going to work against Buffalo. This one could easily become something Buffalo is not used to being on the right side of a rout. The Bulls should be able to cover this without too much trouble. Bet This Game Now
Georgia Tech (-2) @ Clemson: Clemson is in the middle of a mid-season coaching change after once again underachieving in a mediocre ACC. Georgia Tech has been on an absolute role, and this is a complete team that is surprisingly strong on both sides of the ball. Clemson is overmatched here, and the changing of coaching staffs is going to make it impossible for them to bring their A game. Tech covers easy. Bet This Game Now
Stanford (-1) @ UCLA: UCLA is still receiving a little bit more credit than they should be, and Stanford really is that good. This is a strong PAC-10 team that is definitely going bowling. The one common opponent? Stanford beat Arizona by one in a close game, but Arizona crushed UCLA. The Bruins have a lot of holes on their team while the Cardinals look really solid on both sides of the ball. Not only do the Cardinals win, but they should cover easily. Bet This Game Now
San Diego (pick) @ Buffalo: The Chargers haven’t performed nearly as well as expected, but this is a team that looks strong on offense, and QB Philip Rivers is one of the elite signal callers in the NFL. San Diego has been extremely disappointing on defense, but even with all their injuries this team is still in the hunt. The Bills are an excellent play-off caliber team, but there are some questions at QB. Trent Edwards is exceptional, but will he be fully recovered for this game? I’m betting not, and a great effort by San Diego will be enough to win a very close game. Bet This Game Now
New Orleans @ Carolina (-3): The Saints defense finally stepped up a little, only to have the offense not show up. That is a team loaded with talent, but they need more consistency. Carolina is better on both sides of the ball, and they look like a legitimate play off contender since they have play makers on both sides of the football. The Panthers are going to be exceptional on offense as the running game catches on, and they’re going to outmatch the Saints by more than a field goal.Bet This Game Now
