West Coast Bias – Week Four Plays

YTD: 8-10  LW: 2-4 305 Virginia +13 – Just too many points here for a Cavaliers team that is hitting their stride on offense (even though this is a weird travel spot to Boise before they open ACC play next week against Duke).  The advantage we like here is UVA HC Mendenhall and his familiarity with coaching against Boise while he was at BYU.  Mendenhall’s 3-3-5 defense can be a bear to prepare for and we think...

West Coast Bias – Week 0 & Week 1 Plays

YTD: 0-0  LW: 0-0   295 USF -21.5 – Charlie Strong takes over the reins for the Bulls and inherits a strong squad that has 16 returning starters, including dynamic QB Flowers), who should move the ball at will against the Spartans in the opener.  SJSU begins 2017 in a straight re-build, with a new QB and new HC, who will be implementing a new system (the Dino Babers offense from Syracuse), and two first time...

College Football Betting Preview – Oregon St...

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon – Anyone ever play that game where you name almost any movie and some how Kevin Bacon ties into it?   Well in College Football I think you can play 6 degrees of Brett Bielema and his mysterious choice to leave Madison, Wisconsin and go to Arkansas. Go back 2012 as Wisconsin was preparing to play in the Rose Bowl after wrapping up its THIRD  BIG 10 title in his 6 year tenure and Bielema...

2017 PAC-12 Quick Hitters

Each year I come up with a list of “Quick Hitters” for the Pac-12 conference. Below are my initial thoughts on each team and a season win total recommendation for each division.     Pac-12 South USC: Obvious national title contender, however no off-weeks the entire year.  This could come into play. Haven’t opened at home in 2 years, the last three home openers (’12, ’14, ’15),...

Conference Rivalry Game of the Week

Arizona State -3 Both teams come in on bad losing streaks…Arizona St lost 5 straight and Arizona has now lost 8 straight game…So why do I like this game?…Well, I feel that ASU is the better team between the two…Anyways, below I have listed 3 Keys that give the Sun Devils the advantage and leads them to a bowl clinching win.   Key #1:….Arizona St has the better QB and Scoring Offense....

West Coast Bias – Week 13 Plays

129 Boise State O 64 – We noted back in Week 6 that the Smurfs struggles against the triple option, with the defense producing results like this the last two years against Air Force and New Mexico: 31, 37, 49, and 28 points in each match-up. Boise will be able to march up and down the field with QB Rypien and RB McNichols on a Fly Boy squad that has given up 38 and 46 points the last two weeks against San Jose and CSU....

West Coast Bias – Week 12 Plays

317 UNLV +28 – This line appears to have a heavy premium on the Smurfs, who destroyed Hawai’i last week and return home for a Friday Night Lights game against the Rebels. UNLV can flat out rush the rock at 5.7 ypr and put it on a Wyoming last week in a thrilling, triple OT win (a Poke team that beat Boise by pounding the rock as well). With Air Force on deck for the Smurfs and UNLV QB Palandech turning things up,...

West Coast Bias – Week 10 Plays

407 Oregon State O 42 – My numbers have this game reaching near 50 and therefore we have some value on this total. Last week Tree and RB McCaffrey found a bit of a groove against the soft defense of Arizona by going for 160+ yards and two TD’s. Coach Shaw and Tree benefited from a switch at QB, by moving to Chryst, who was able to move the offense much more effectively than former QB Burns. The Beavers should...

West Coast Bias – Week 8

346 Air Force -16 – The Fly Boys were last seen getting steam-rolled by New Mexico in Dallas, and now return home to lick their wounds against a UH team that is flying the mainland to face the option. UH’s defense got pounded last week by UNLV at home giving up 5ypr and 41 points. Expect more of the same from the Fly Boys as they will get their defense back in order against UH and ground and pound the ‘Bows...
