Get’em While They’re Hot Picks: Week 1

Oregon State at Colorado State CBS Sports Network 1:30pm

Line is giving Oregon State around 4 points.  This is CSU’s first game in their new on-campus stadium.

I think CSU’s offense will be powerful enough to put them over the 4 points needed to cover.  Since 2013 CSU is 14-4 when they are a favorite home team, which tells me bettors have been undervaluing the Rams.  Also, Oregon State is 5-8 ATS in non-conference games since 2013.

Colorado State (-4)


Hawaii at UMass No TV 5:00pm Central

Line has been hovering around even. As Vegas is predicting, I think this will be the best game for opening week.

I am going strictly on betting trends with pick.  Hawaii wins tight spread games ATS on the road, and UMass losses tight spread games ATS at home.  Plus I like the Rainbows QB.

Hawaii (Even)



Rice vs. Stanford (Sydney, AU) ESPN 9:00pm Central

Line is hovering around a 31 point favorite for Stanford.   New Defense being installed at Rice after a dismal defensive season last year.

I could see Stanford putting up major points while allowing very few.   I think Vegas is baiting bettors to choose Rice, and I’m not falling for it.

Stanford (-31)



Fresh Parlay:

USF (-20.5) – Under 68


My wife’s fantasy tip:  Draft RB Powell of the Jets in a real late round or pick up off waivers.  “Someone has to score points for that team, and he is a solid RB3 that might move into RB2”
