Stunning Upsets Shaking Up College Football And It Will Continue To Shock Bettors This Week

Believe What Media Says About NFL Teams And Get Ready To Go Broke
By Kelso Sturgeon
It is a given at the start of each college football season teams such as Notre Dame, LSU, Oklahoma and Southern California will make will be in the running for a spot in the national championship game. Well, guess what? Notre Dame is 1-3, LSU 2-2, Oklahoma 1-2 and Southern California 1-3 and have no chance to get to the big game. It has to be a relief for bettors in he NFL the games the say, with New England again set to rule.
It may help you to keep your head on straight amidst all the college upsets if you accept my two universal rules of handicapping.
- You can do everything right and still be wrong.
- There is an exception to every rule.
The two rules give handicappers some mental wiggle room when they see Notre Dame, a 21.5-point favorite over a below average Duke team, lose to the Blue Devils, 38-35. Duke came into the game with a 1-2 mark, beating I-AA North Carolina Central, 49-6, and then suffering back-to-back losses to Wake Forest, 24-14, and at Northwestern, 24-13.
There is no explanation for then 12th-ranked Georgia’s 45-14 loss at then 23rd-ranked Ole Miss. The Bulldogs, 6.5-point underdogs, were down 45-0 at the end of three and would have suffered their worst loss in history had not the Rebels called off the dogs.
It was the Bulldogs worst SEC loss since suffering a 42-10 defeat to LSU in the 2011 SEC title game and the worst SEC regular season loss since they were blown out, 49-10 by Florida in 2008. For the record their worst SEC loss of all time came in 1943 when they lost to Georgia Tech, 48-0.
There is no explanation for Mississippi’s domination over Georgia in a game that figured to have the number in play all the way. Saturday Georgia will be able to tell the football world where it really stands as it hosts 4-0 Tennessee as a 3.5-point underdog. Georgia is 3-2 in the last five meetings, with the games decided by an average of 5.6 points and two of the last three by 3 points.
In my opinion, you can take it to the bank there are going to be major upsets this weekend and just might include some of the biggest marquee games of the season.
It also is of note the ACC showdown that finds Louisville (4-0) at Clemson (4-0) is getting heavy action and it is all on the Cardinals. Clemson opened a -2 favorite in this one but the money has produced a 4-point shift that has Louisville the -2 choice.
Nothing And Nobody Can Stop New England
While NFL teams expected to be Super Bowl contenders—Carolina (1-2), Cincinnati (1-2) and Arizona (1-2)—perform in dramatically subpar fashion, the New England Patriots (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS) continue to overcome all obstacles and just keep winning. For instance, missing their 1-2 quarterbacks Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo, coach Bill Belichick plugs in rookie Jacoby Brissett and buries the best Houston team in years, 27-0.
No excuses here—the Pats just win.
NFL favorites went 6-8-2 against the spread last week and the day still belonged to the bookmakers because the three most heavily bet teams, the Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers and Pittsburg Steelers all failed to cover. The Panthers (-5.5) lost straight up to the Minnesota Vikings, 22-10 and, for the record, the latter got it done as my 50-unit NFL Game of the Week.
Having years ago been the Southern Regional Sports Editor for The Associated Press I know the influence the media has on forming public opinion about various teams and it is quite often misleading, whether intentional or not. It is easy or those reporting football to get carried away and in the process make teams such as Southern California, Alabama and Michigan, just to name three, so good losing is out of the question.
Meantime the public falls into line and bets the popular teams, failing to realize not only do they have to win, they must cover the number.
USC is a case in point. The Trojans are not only 1-3 SU but 1-3 ATS and have had but one winning record against the spread in the past seven seasons.
There is a great difference between winning and covering.
Dolphins (1-2) And Bengals (1-2) Tangle In Thursday Night Football With Both Under The Gun To Win
I am off to a solid start in the National Football League this season and head into tonight’s nationally-televised (NFL Network) Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals with my Chairman’s Football Investment Club standing 5-2-1 in its 25-unit releases this season. It is of note the five winners were all underdogs that got the money with straight-up victories.
I will be releasing tonight’s game as another 25-unit play and am extremely confident I have the winner. Cincinnati is a touchdown favorite in this one but is facing a Miami team that took both Seattle and New England to the money before losing at the Seahawks, 12-10, and at the Patriots 31-24. Last week the Dolphins got their first win of the season with a 30-24 overtime victory over the Cleveland Browns.
This game will be decided by a couple of overlooked edges and you can win it with me for just $25, charged to your major credit card.

Go 2-0 With 2 Nationally Televised College Games Tonight. Kansas Is At Texas Tech, Connecticut At Houston And There Is No Doubt What Team Will Win These Games,But The Cover Is Up For Grabs
College football is a sport loaded with surprises and while bettors know for certain some favorites absolutely cannot lose, that truly is not the case. One as to look at last week’s results to prove that point. Notre Dame, a 21.5-point favorite over Duke, lost to the Blue Devils under the shadow of Touchdown Jesus, 38-35. Now, catch a plane the same day for Eugene, OR, and watch the Ducks (-14) get stung by Colorado, 41-38, on an Autzen Stadium field where they stand 66-9 over the past 10-plus seasons.
In other words teams that appear easy blowout winners can lose. So, what does that say for covering the number—a difficult deed under the best of circumstances.
Texas Tech (2-1) is a 28-point favorite over Kansas (1-2) and Houston (4-0) s the same price against Connecticut (2-2). The talent differential between these two teams is a night vs. day situation but the betting line makes everything dead-even. Kansas-Texas Tech will be televised on Fox Sports 1, Connecticut-Houston on ESPN.
I have studied these games in great detail, including the fact Texas Tech faces a tough game at Kansas State next week, and am releasing both of them as 10-unit plays. You can win both of them with me for just $15, charged to your major credit card.
