Risk Capital, Week 8
Only two games on the docket for me today, unusual when so many usually get my attention...
Nebraska +6 over Texas, MAX BET
Nebraska is back, and has the national stage versus a Longhorn team that has done an excellent job beating up patsies. Longhorns may squeak this out in their first game outside the Lone Star State, but there is value in the line. Texas coming off a +4 turnover margin in the win over Baylor, so I also expect a "reversion to the mean" in quality of play. If you are feeling froggy, moneyline is +190 for the Huskers, so maybe play both.
Georgia Tech +7 at Clemson
GT has been money as an underdog for me this year, coming thru versus ND and Virginia Tech. Georgia Tech puts a lot more than WR Calvin Johnson out there, as their defense gets a big test against the top scoring team in the nation. That top scoring team is also down to its #3 WR, as Stucky and Taylor are ut for the year. Phil Steele mentions that the dog is 16-1 ATS in this matchup - WOW! Jackets also are a fat +245 straight up. Yummy.
Yeah, capitalism. Remember, President Bush signed into law making Internet gambling illegal this past week. It will only push gamblers underground. Great article by Business Week's Cathering Holahan here.
