Last week we did alright, we went 3/6 in our best-bets for College and 3/5 in the NFL. This week Atraincorp looks to continue our success in the NFL and find our footing in the College game. As per usual we are gonna start in the College Game.
I’m writing this as I watch Illinois vs Penn State in Champaign, and right now the Illini are hanging tough with the Nittany Lions. Watching this game takes me back to the first major college football game that I ever attended. It was 1994 and #2 ranked Penn State went to Illinois to face the #25 Fighting Illini.
It feels like this Illinois team is going to get a cover just like that one did, but there is a long way to play in this one…onto Saturday’s games.
Notre Dame -7.5 @ Wake Forest: Atraincorp likes the Demon Deacons to cover the spread here. We have not seen a lot from Norte Dame since the first half at home vs Michigan.
Nebraska +18 @ Michigan: Too many points here for Michigan who I just don’t think is going to blow anyone out. I’m looking hard at the under 50 as well (call that a lean).
South Carolina -2 @ Vanderbilt: My take is that Vandy is good but not South Carolina good, Vandy doesn’t have the same kind of home field that a typical SEC school does, if all the Gamecocks have to do is win by a field goal to cover then I like their chances.
TCU -3 @ Texas: This game is also a strong lean on the under and we are taking TCU to cover. I just think the Horned Frogs are a better team and probably a better-coached team. So why wouldn’t I take them?
Virginia Tech -27.5 @ Old Dominion: Until we actually lose betting against ODU why not fade this school? Where the fuck is Old Dominion anyway?
Florida -4.5 @ Tennessee: I got the Gators in this one, I’m not feeling super great about it but I’m following someone I trust on this. There are a lot of trends favoring Florida. Also, I’ve rooted for the Gators for a long time let’s roll with the team we like.
Wisconsin -3.5 @ Iowa: We got the Hawkeyes in this game with another lean towards the under. Wisconsin is overrated and Iowa is at home in a night game…this is what they live for in Iowa.
Troy -6 @ ULM: Tom Fornelli special, he convinced me that I should bet on this Troy squad. I still remember DaMarcus Ware destroying Mizzou while playing for Troy. I’m not scared to make Troy a best bet.
Not best bets but worth a quick hit:
Georgia @ Mizzou: got a slight lean towards Georgia but who knows the Tigers were able to score 28 on them last season.
TAMU @ Bama: So on principal, I wanted to take A&M because the spread is silly. Then I thought how Alabama is always covering no matter what and scoring 50 points every game…so then I wanted to take Bama. I think that means stay away.
I’ll have NFL WTB up tomorrow….good luck…A-Train Out.
