Pezgordo’s College Football Picks – YTD: 6-7 ATS
Not the greatest start to the 2012 college football betting season, but I have definitely had worse. I actually ended up going 7-7, but since I did not include the Oregon total in the newsletter or anywhere else on the site, I will not count it. I did manage to beat the closing line on 12 of 13 games, for all the good it did me this week.
On the brighter side of things, 4 of the 6 teams I wagered to go over their season win totals won this past weekend (Iowa, Tennessee, Utah & UCLA). Auburn was my only loser. The Oregon State game was postponed.
Let’s get right to this week’s games. I will have some quick thoughts on each of these games later in the week. I was completely taken off guard with totals coming out yesterday. Typically they are released Tuesday afternoon, however because it is week two, I am assuming they (the bookmakers) were able to get the numbers out quicker. Hopefully the totals release schedule returns to normal next week.
Oregon 1st half -21 (-115)
Adding Ducks first half just in case Chip puts up another 50 points in 23 minutes and then starts sitting starters like last week.
Oregon State +8
Here is the write-up I did this morning for College Football Zealots on why I like the Beavers in this game. I really think we are getting an underrated Oregon State team playing at home against a good, but possibly overrated Wisconsin team. We’ll find out Saturday, but that is the way I am seeing it right now.
Indiana – UMASS U 51
Better than last week, but still a long ways to go: http://secpresspass.com/home-page/week-2-pick-take-florida-plus-the-points/
Miami – Kansas State O 53.5
UCF – Ohio State U 50.5
