Jared Gos’ Offical 2018 World Cup Preview

**Follow Gos on Twitter for Hot Takes and More Soccer Expertise @Oh_My_Gos**

What’s going on y’all? I’ll be giving you a quick preview of the World Cup group stages. I’ll throw in some odds for you (us) degenerates looking to make a quick buck so we don’t have to drive an Uber at nights. Just remember that I’m never wrong, just sometimes I’m less right than I want to be. Let’s cook.

Group A

Uruguay (EVEN)

Pretty simply the best team in the group and I’m not sure it’s close. Their front line is led by all-world strikers in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, of Barcelona and PSG (respectively). While not the deepest team in the tournament, they have skilled flair players across the board, including midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur of Juventus and Jose Gimenez of Atletico Madrid. They are a lock to score goals, and will almost assuredly make it out of a generally weak group.

Russia (+125)

The host nation has some pretty inflated odds to make it to the elimination round, with their home field advantage hoping to carry them through. In soccer, away teams often have to play a more defensive game, forfeiting possession in order to strike on the counter-attack. One of the older squads in the tournament, they will actually rely on 22-year-old Aleksandr Golovin to get them the goals they need for qualification.

Egypt (+550)

The most interesting team in the group by far. Their odds are deflated thanks to an injury to Mo Salah in the Champions League final, but they’ve waited 22 years for this moment and will not shy away. They have the oldest player in World Cup history in Essam El-Hadary (45 years old!) and a solid defense, but their hopes rest entirely on the shoulder (quite literally) of Salah. He put together one of the best seasons in Premier League history with his goalscoring exploits, and his pace and movement put defenders on the floor (sometimes way too literally).

Saudi Arabia (+3300)

Not much to say here that the odds don’t say already. The weakest team in the group, they will be sitting back most matches and simply trying not to concede. Other teams simply have too much firepower.

Winner: Uruguay

Runner Up: Egypt

Group B

Spain (-200)

One of the most talented teams in the tournament and heavy favorites to win their group, Spain has all the tools to make a run. Their odds are almost entirely based on a head-to-head against Portugal, with Iran and Morocco not real threats to sneak into the round of 16. They have the best goalkeeper on the planet in David De Gea, two of the best defenders on the planet in Sergio Ramos and Pique (not to mention Real Soceidad’s Odriozola, a promising young talent who is an excellent crosser), and some of the best midfielders in the world such as Thiago Alacantra, Marco Asensio, and Isco (among others). UPDATE: Spain fired their manager one day before the tournament. That’s bad. I’m not sure how it will affect them but it can’t possibly help.

Portugal (+185)

You might be asking yourself how a team that won Euro 2016 and has Ronaldo isn’t even favored to win their group. Well, people forget that they just barely qualified for the knockout rounds, having drawn all of their group stage matches. But this team is way more than just Ronaldo. A solid, if unspectacular, defense is shielded by a midfield starring Bruno Fernandes, Joao Mario, Joao Moutinho, and William Carvalho, and has a murderers row in attack with Andre and Bernardo Silva, Gelson Martins, Goncalo Guedes, and international stalwart Quaresma. They defend stoutly and are devastating on the counter.

Morocco (+1600)

The Moroccans have a solid team, with star defender Medhi Benatia and attacker Hakim Ziyech. Unfortunately for them, they are in a group with two of Europe’s elite. They will be hoping to grab about 4 points in the group and hope that will be enough to be the runners-up in the group.

Iran (+2500)

One of the worse teams in the tournament and by a pretty solid margin the worst team in the group, they will defend for their lives and look to grab a clean sheet or two. They’ve only conceded 4 goals in their last 8 matches, but that was mostly against opponents on their level. This isn’t as much of a step up in competition as it is an elevator ride to the penthouse.

Winner: Portugal

Runner Up: Spain

Group C

France (-350)

Probably one of the three best teams on the planet and can score at will on their day. They literally couldn’t find room for world-class players like Aymeric Laporte, Adrian Rabiot, and Anthony Martial. Their defense and mentality in big games has been questioned, and a 1-1 draw with the USA this week did not help to ease their fans’ nerves, but it would be a shock to not win the group with Denmark their biggest threat. Their bench could probably qualify for the tournament on its own.

Denmark (+450)

Two words. Christian Eriksen. The Danish midfielder is one of the best attacking midfielders on the planet, and is a threat from anywhere within 40 yards of the goal, especially from set pieces. Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is one of the brightest young defenders in the sport, and Kasper Dolberg is a strong presence in attack. They could make a bit of noise in this tournament with a friendly draw in the Round of 16, should they make it that far.

Peru (+900)

With no real stars carrying this roster, Peru is a machine that needs all 11 players on the pitch to be totally in sync. Their odds are a bit shocking, considering the gulf in talent between them and Denmark/France, and it’s something to keep an eye on, but they should be disposed of early.

Australia (+1800)

Home to the greatest national team nickname in the sport, the Socceroos actually have quite a bit of talent on the squad. They have the timeless Tim Cahill (born in 1979!) in attack, Robbie Kruse and Aaron Mooy in midfield, and Brad Jones/Mat Ryan in net. Unlikely to make it out of the group, they have nothing to lose and are fun to watch. I wouldn’t be shocked to see them grab 4 points in the group.

Winner: France

Runner Up: Denmark

Group D

Argentina (-180)

Everybody knows Messi is the engine to this team. In fact, it’s been 19 months(!!!) since anybody else besides the GOAT has scored for this team. I could just preview this team by showing you Messi highlights set to various house music songs. Seriously, I could do that. But, and please read this in your Stephen A. Smith voice…HOWEVER, I’ll give you more info on his supporting cast. Gonzalo Higuain is a phenomenal striker, despite his many faults and big game mentality issues, Paulo Dybala is maybe the best player on the planet under 25 years old, and they have the free scoring Sergio Aguero (not to mention midfield wizard Angel Di Maria and Javier Mascherano). While criticized at club level, Nicolas Otamendi and Marcos Rojo are solid international players. This is likely Messi’s last World Cup. Take the over in all of their games.

Croatia (+225)

My favorite sleeper pick in the tournament. Croatia has some unbelievable talent, with Mateo Kovacic, Luca Modric, and Ivan Rakitic commanding the midfield, and striker Mario Mandzukic flanked by Ivan Perisic and Marko Pjaca on the wings. Dejan Lovren and Tin Jedvaj are solid defenders tasked with shielding Danijel Subasic in goal. Do not sleep on them, and I have them *spoiler* going far.

Nigeria (+1000)

Easily the team with the most swagger coming into the tournament, Nigeria is probably the best team in Africa at the moment. Kelechi Ihenacho and Ahmed Musa are a solid strike force, with Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi playing on the wings. Wilfred Ndidi is one of the best defensive midfielders in England and John Mikel Obi played for Chelsea forever before his move to China. They will be a lot of fun to watch, especially in their green and white kits.

Iceland (+1200)

The Euro 2016 darlings defend like their lives depend on it, can eviscerate you from set pieces with their enormous stature, and have the Icelandic clap that was brought to the NFL by the Minnesota Vikings. Oh and there’s something about their names but I can’t quite put my finger on it…

Picture1.jpg

Winner: Argentina

Runner Up:  Croatia

Group E

Brazil (-400)

It’s not usually a good thing when your national team’s most famous World Cup moment was losing 7-1 in a game in your own country (I know it’s a 6 minute video but you should really watch all of it to grasp how outrageous this was. I mean, the announcer says “this could be embarrassing” when it was 3-0 in 25 minutes. Germany would still score 4 more goals). But they are much better now. They are deep and are seemingly unanimously one of the 2 best teams in the tournament along with…Germany. Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, and Phil Coutinho will lead the attack, with Roberto Firmino, Douglas Costa, and Willian coming off the bench. A tenacious midfield and defense is backed by Roma shot stopper Alisson, who was dubbed by his goalkeeping coach “The Messi of goalkeepers”.

Switzerland (+600)

The 3 time quarterfinalists boast a strong squad, with Roman Burki/Yann Sommer in net, and Stephan Lichtsteiner, Nico Elvedi, and left footed free kick wizard Ricardo Rodriguez in defense. The polarizing Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka line up in midfield, and talented strikers Josip Drmic and Breel Embolo leading the line. They will be a popular pick to make the Round of 16 and are a solid upset pick, but…

Serbia (+800)

…I REALLY like this Serbia team. Their defense has some solid players with Aleksander Kolarov and Branislav Ivanovic, but their midfield is where they really shine. Nemanja Matic is a devastating defensive midfielder and will line up with one of Luka Milivojevic or Marko Grujic, the Liverpool midfielder who led Cardiff City to Premier League promotion on loan. But the stars of this roster are Southampton winger/attacking midfielder Dusan Tadic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who currently plies his trade for Lazio, but is one of the biggest up-and-coming talents in the world. He’s my pick to be this World Cup’s James Rodriguez. Up front, Aleksandar Mitrovic is a physical force who defenses must account for when crosses come into the box, a near-impossible challenge when he gets the kind of service he craves from Tadic, Kolarov, and Ivanovic.

Costa Rica (+1800)

Led by goalkeeper Keylor Navas, Costa Rica look to build off of their 2014 World Cup, where they were ousted after a shocking run that saw them escape their group with Uruguay, England, and Italy and make the quarterfinals. Unfortunately, the secret is out and they’re just not strong enough.

Winner: Brazil

Runner Up: Serbia

Group F

Germany (-310)

The best team in the tournament and the odds show. The 2014 winners just cut Leroy Sane from their squad a week before the tournament (for those who don’t know, he’s probably one of the 5 or 6 best wingers in the world) so they’re as talented and deep as ever. Joachim Low’s squad have an excellent shot at winning again this year, and I wouldn’t put it past them to cruise into the final four.

Mexico (+500)

America’s team! They play an aggressive style of soccer, which relies on dominating the ball and carrying the ball to the edge of the box, where their dynamic midfielders can score from range or provide a killer ball to Chicharito or Gio Dos Santos. It will be a tough fight to the round of 16 for the Mexicans.

Sweden (+600)

The Swedes no longer have the services of the polarizing but undoubtedly great Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but they still have plenty of talent. Led by RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg and center back Victor Lindelof, they defend tough and score world class goals. A sneaky pick to pull a Costa Rica this year.

South Korea (+2000)

The Koreans are led by Son Heung-Min, the Tottenham winger who can slice any defense to pieces. But they lack depth and don’t have much talent outside of him. They will absolutely steal a point or two somewhere, but it won’t be enough to get out of the group.

Winner: Germany

Runner Up: Sweden

Group G

Belgium (-125)

One of the most talented teams in the world, the Belgians often seem to fold on the big stages, like when they were ousted of Euro 2016 by Wales. They are currently ranked 3rd in FIFA’s rankings, and are led by the ever world-class Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne. When firing on all cylinders, they can rip a team to shreds, but Roberto Martinez has not been a convincing manager, who often plays too conservatively despite the talent around him.

England (+120)

The English have all the pieces, but can they make a run at their first World Cup in 50 years? Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, and Marcus Rashford lead their attack and can cut teams to ribbons, and they have defended stoutly over the past few months. If they can keep that mentality up, this could be their year.

Tunisia (+1600)

Tunisia is a relative unknown, but they are not a team to be taken lightly. They’ve drawn against superior squads in Portugal and Turkey, and only lost to Spain by a 1-0 scoreline. That being said, it would take a miracle to make it out of such a top-heavy group.

Panama (+2500)

Another squad with no real talisman, it would be hard to see the Panamanians make it out of the group stages. They defend stoutly and try to attack teams on the counter, but their lack of talent is going to make that extremely tough against teams in Belgium and England who will hold the ball for upwards of 60-70 percent of the game.

Winner: England

Runner Up: Belgium

Group H

Colombia (+120)

Everyone remembers what James Rodriguez did last World Cup, winning the Golden Boot and scoring ridiculous goals in what seemed like every game. While this Colombia team is not as good as last tournaments, they are young and dangerous. David Ospina will man the net while Davinson Sanchez and Yerry Mina will afford him protection as the center backs. Jose Izquierdo and Juan Cuadrado provide strong width to help break down teams who are willing to sit back and give James the space he needs, and Falcao/Bacca will clean up any balls in the 18-yard box.

Poland (+175)

When you think of Poland, you have to immediately think of all-world striker Robert Lewandowski. He’s one of the 3 best strikers in the world and he can’t stop scoring for the Polish squad at the moment. In midfield, Piotr Zielinski is the star while Jakub Blaszczykowski (I had to copy and paste the name) provides width. But, if they are to advance and make any sort of run, it will be because Lewandowski goes supernova.

Senegal (+500)

The Senegalese are a very sneaky pick to make a run past the group stages this year. Their attack is deadly with Monaco’s Keita Balde and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, and their midfield can stifle opponents with their pace and energy, though they are a bit suspect at the back. They will struggle against players of Lewandowski and Falcao, but they have the strength going forward to bring the fight to teams.

Japan (+700)

The odds might say differently, but Japan has some star power in their lineup. Maya Yoshida has been a solid Premier League defender for years now with Southampton, Shinji Kagawa and Keisuke Honda have ranged from good to spectacular at club level, and Shinji Okazaki was a key piece to Leicester City’s shock Premier League title run. I’m not sure they will be able to get it done, but this group seems to be up for grabs. I would not be shocked if they pulled off an upset and wound up looking for a draw on match day 3 to secure the second spot in their group.

Winner: Colombia

Runner Up: Senegal

MFC Returns With One Last Shot To Get Back On Track: Week 10 College Football Picks Of The Week

mfc

Turns out CFB can be quite the bitch these days. You know, you think you have it all and you’re 10 steps ahead of the odds makers and next thing you know you’re paying your bookie left and right. I did some serious research this week so if these picks go up in flames like the past two weeks, I’m officially retiring from publishing my picks (not from gambling, don’t be ridiculous). So here goes nothing, boys.

1) The Big Ten Brawl Bet: Michigan vs Maryland, POINTS (Over 54), 3:30 pm @ The Big House

Jabrill Peppers honestly might put up all 54 points himself. Both of these teams can put up points, and Maryland is much improved offensively from last year. However, that’s not really going to matter as Michigan will likely dominate every facet of the game. I’m looking at a 20+ point Michigan victory, but expect Maryland to put up some points. The smart bet here is definitely to take the over on the points, and watch Jabrill do his thing. Seriously, that dude is an animal.

2) Big 12 Sucks Bet: Oklahoma St (+130 ML) over Kansas State  3:30 pm @ KSU

The Pokes just came off a huge program win vs WVU last week, which once again proves that the Big 12 is full of mediocre teams with similar talent. Only difference with KSU is they haven’t had the season that OSU has, and moreover can’t put up the points to match OSU. Let’s look at a couple differentiators in this game. First, look at the coaches: OSU’s Mike Gundy is the man and actually got the game ball last week after their win over WVU. KSU’s Snyder, on the other hand, might have been alive to watch the Cubs win the 1908 World Series and probably has to take his dentures out to eat oatmeal. On the real, KSU is less talented and the fact that they’re the favorite must have everything to do with the fact that they have home field advantage. But who actually cares? Oklahoma St. will ride the high from last week and cruise past KSU. Money line boys.

3) The Screw Arkansas Bet: Florida (-4) vs Arkansas , 3:30 pm @ Arkansas

I’ve been real high on Arkansas in the past, but then they got embarrassed at Auburn and lost 56-3, that one hurt for sure (especially in the bank). However, this bet has more to do with Florida. The Gators have a solid defense with arguably the best secondary in football and are comprised of a competent offense that can be physical in the trenches (which Arkansas has proved it can’t be). I mean the Gators Tim Tebow at one point, who I’m starting to think might be the second coming of Jesus. Seriously, the dude performs miracles left and right and preaches all day every day. Can’t bet against Jesus! Plus, 4 points isn’t enough for a team that will likely win the SEC East, and needs this win to do so. Chomp Chomp!

4) The USC is for Tools Bet: Oregon (+17) vs USC, 7:00 pm @ The Coliseum

Both these teams suck. I really just wanted to take this bet because I hate USC almost as much as I hate Michigan, and if I’m going to be smart with my money and bet Michigan every week (against every ounce of my hatred for them), I’m gonna have to balance it out by betting against the fruit cakes at USC. The Trojan offense finally looks like its clicking, but for whatever reason I like the Ducks. USC has been a train wreck of a program as of late, and I think Royce Freeman is primed for a huge game. JuJu Smith and Adoree Jackson are the real deal, but make no mistake, I don’t have much confidence in Sam Darnold at all. What good are star WRs if the QB can’t get them the rock? Go Ducks.

5) The Bring Back Money Team Manziel Bet: Texas A&M (-12) vs Miss St, Noon @ Miss St

I’m really high on this A&M team. They’ve been stockpiling 5-star athletes over the past few recruiting cycles, and those boys are finally showing up to play, and boy are they athletic. Christian Kirk and Speedy Noil are great targets for Trevor Knight, who is explosive in his own right, and Myles Garrett is a freak of nature on the D-Line. Miss St took a HUGE blow losing Dak Prescott and the offense really hasn’t recovered yet. Overall, the difference in talent is way too much, not to mention that A&M is vying for a playoff birth, and will have all the motivation in the world to win. A&M will WIN BIG to make a push for the final 4.

It’s now or never boys.

MFC Picks Of The Week: College Football Week 9

After his first rough outing of the year (2-3), MFC returns with his picks for a stacked slate of College games.

mfc

Here we go boys. Last week wasn’t so kind to us, (2-3) but this week brings a whole new series of games. Lets get after it. MFC’s picks of the week.

1) The Mr. Irrelevant bet: Boise State (-14) over Wyoming

I can’t imagine Wyoming is an imposing football power. Boise State, on the other hand, is like a walking high-school sports movie, where the cheerleader and QB get married and everyone lives happily ever after. Those SOBs even have blue grass. On a serious note, Boise St is good and Wyoming isn’t. 14 is too low.

2) The SEC East is a Joke bet: Tennessee (-13.5) over South Carolina

I know I’ve taken every opportunity possible to rip Tennessee, but South Carolina is in a dark spot right now. Those cocks wouldn’t know a top 25 ranking if it was lathered in southern tide apparel and the whole Ray-ban & Croakies combo. Take Tennessee here. They’re too talented.

3) The North Pacific IPA Tasting Festival bet: Washington State (-13) over Oregon State

Mike Leach is the man and everyone should know it. Not only does he act like a man with zero shits to give, but he produces results on the field when it matters. Washington State has had a great year while Oregon State remains one of those teams that everyone looks at and goes “who the hell would ever want to go there.” Mike Leach was really all I needed to pull the trigger. The dude is a living legend.

4) The SJS Bet: Penn St. (-13.5) over Purdue

The boys over at PSU are feeling great and they’re ready to keep the momentum rolling against a weak Purdue crew. Purdue as a whole has been in question the past few years, and I really don’t see the upside of that roster. Penn state wins on talent and momentum here.

5) The Primetime bet: Clemson (-4.5) over FSU

My only initial hesitation with this bet is this game is played at Doak Campell Stadium, and those fans get up for games. However, Clemson is the better team. QB play and Wayne Gallman coming back from injury are the difference here. Eat fellas.

MFC’s Hot Picks Of The Week: College Football Week 8

After a 5-1 showing last week, Matty A is back to help you make some more money.

mfc

 

Ladies and gents, welcome back to Matty A’s aka MFC’s picks of the week. After last weeks record of 5-1 (the only loss coming because I’m a dumb homer and bet on the Irish), we’re looking to build that wealth and stack bills taller than Trump Towers. We’re doing categories again so here goes nothing.

1)  Wake up, bake up, cake up bet: Minnesota (-18.5) over Rutgers, 12pm

If you ask me, there’s nothing better than waking up at noon on a lovely Saturday, lighting up a funny cigarette, and watching Rutgers get beat for the millionth time. This could be the week Rutgers actually beats the spread, but if we’re being honest, I’m betting against Rutgers vs. the spread for the rest of the year. This strategy hasn’t failed me yet and unless you’re blind, you’ve also probably realized that Rutgers doesn’t even belong in a JV high school game. Not too much thought put in here other than Rutgers sucks, but that should be enough here.

2)  “How is this Line Real?” bet: Wisconsin (-3) over Iowa, 12pm

Seriously? Wisconsin just took OSU down to the wire and Iowa almost lost to Rutgers a few years back (refer to the above paragraph for my feelings on Rutgers). This is about the closest thing you’re going to find to a sure bet. Take it boys.

3) Afternoon Delight bet: West Virginia (-6) over TCU, 3:330pm

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate the Big 12? Watching Big 12 football reminds me of playing the worst NCAA football video game ever created. No one gives a shit about defense, they run nothing but no huddle offense and pass on every down and don’t play real football. Plus, they will get crushed when they play a real team. Seriously, if either of these two teams were in any other power 5 conference, neither would even be .500. However, as fate may have it, both are in the Big 12 and both are above .500. I say take WVU here for one reason: this game is in Morgantown. You know, the same place where fans are notorious for throwing batteries at opposing fans and where they burn couches even after they beat D III schools. This is going to be a good game and Kenny Trill is gonna have a field day, but I like WVU to cover. They just look like an all-around better team.

4) The Team That Won’t Die bet: Arkansas MONEY LINE (+305) over Auburn, 6pm

Arkansas is just a real sleeper of a team. They’re annoying to play and harder to put to bed than a drunk college kid on a Friday. Auburn, on the other hand, is a disappointment yet again and really needs to can Gus Malzahn already. I figured the spread on this game would be around Auburn -2, but -10 is absurd. Arkansas has a fantastic chance of winning this game and the payout is no joke. We’re building a wall and your bookie is paying for it!!!

5) The Finish All the Beer, It’s Time To Hit The Bar bet: Ole Miss MONEY LINE (+205) over LSU, 9pm

Vegas has to be on the inside about what’s going on in the middle of the pack in the SEC. Ole Miss isn’t a bad team at all. They’ve just played some very tough teams (and messed up horribly in the 2nd half of the FSU game). LSU on the other hand is a steaming pile of shit. Frankly, I refuse to back this LSU team until they find a QB that’s capable of AT LEAST a 50% completion percentage. It’s too easy to game plan against them if all they’re gonna do is feed Fournette and watch him eat all game, especially if your defense is athletic and big as the Ole Miss D. Again, this is well worth the risk and should help the boys stack cake.

Let’s Eat, Fellas.

MFC’s Hot Picks Of The Week: College Football Week 7

Let’s Make Some Money

 

mfc

Boys, welcome back to Matty A’s aka MFC’s Hot Picks of the Week. This week presents a much tougher slate of games to pick from, but if you massage the numbers and use your brains (or whatever is left of them) there are some lines to be exploited. I decided to break them down into categories and include games for all times so that us gambling degenerates can freak out at the TV all day:

hefxpot

The Last Supper: Arkansas (+8) over Ole Miss 7:00 pm

This is definitely a tough one to pick, but Arkansas is way better than people think. Chad Kelly may be a DB, but the dude can flat out ball. However, the Razorbacks seem to have this team’s number every year. Brett Bilemna sucks, but the man knows how to coach and how to be the most annoying team in history to play against. They’ll probably lose the game, but not by more than 8.

Corn-Fed Whiteboy Bowl: Nebraska (-3) over Indiana 3:30pm

A lot of people are real high on Indiana after some of their recent games, but you can count me out of that group. This is a basketball school and they aren’t even good at that. Nebraska is usually a pain in the ass to play. Plus, the dudes are 5-0. Eat boys.

Pay Me Now Bet: Illinois (-5.5) over Rutgers 12:00pm

Rutgers hasn’t scored a point in its last two games and has let up over 130 points in that span. Illinois may not be Michigan or OSU, but they sure aren’t the steaming pile of shit that is Rutgers. Let it be known that RU is my second favorite team, but man do they suck. I’ve made a small fortune betting against them this season and I don’t expect that trend to stop anytime soon. This is a King 2 Ducie hand so pot that SOB.

rutgersfinger

High Risk, Elbows Deep Bet: North Carolina MONEY LINE over Miami (+260) 3:30pm

Who has a set of balls between their legs? This bet is for those men only. NC is an 8 point underdog (how?), but the Heels should be favorites in the game. With odds like these, you’d be an idiot not to take it. The points could also be a nice bet here. If you’re betting points, take the over on 62 because the Heels know how to score. This is a risky ass bet, but man up and grow a set.

EASY Money: Alabama (-12.5) over Tennessee 3:30pm

No description necessary. The Bama boys eat. Plus, I’m so sick of looking at Butch Jones. If Tennessee wasn’t overhyped every year and didn’t proceed to crap the bed, I wouldn’t be saying this. The Vols barely beat App St and needed a hail mary to beat Georgia, who was missing Nick Chubb. I hate Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin, but they know how to win and they will win big.

Night Game: Irish (-3) over Stanford 8:00pm

Yeah, I’m a homer. The last bet I put on the Irish didn’t go so well. I lost $1,200 and almost killed a small child. However, this game is always decided by the refs and that clearly favors the home team (see 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, etc). McCaffrey probably isn’t playing and you better believe ND is coming out UNDER THE LIGHTS on a mission. DRINK ALL THE BEERS! GO IRISH! BEAT DUKE! (sore subject)

Sizzle

Let’s get this money!
