Thursday Plays:

25 Dime –

SOUTH FLORIDA
Lay the points with South Florida tonight when they travel to take on Rutgers.
In a huge Big East matchup, the Bulls have all the necessary ingredients for the win here.
Rutgers has actually improved offensively from last season, when they won 10 games, but this year they’re only 4-2 SU after six games. You would think with the emergence of Mike Teel at quarterback that he would team with Ray Rice to give the Scarlet Knights a dangerous pass-run combination on offense that would leave opposing defenses guessing.
But they haven’t developed any consistent chemistry this year and I don’t see them coming together tonight against the No. 2 ranked Bulls.
South Florida is actually this year’s Rutgers in the Big East. The only difference is this team plays much better defense and has actually been challenged by playing and winning road games against the likes of Auburn and a home win over then No. 5-ranked West Virginia.
The Bulls don’t beat themselves, something that Rutgers cannot make a claim to. The Scarlet Knights have accumulated 50 penalties already this season and they won’t be able to stay close against this Bulls team making those kinds of mental errors.
Another advantage for South Florida is the short week.
I can hear the nay Sayers now, “Well, both teams played last Saturday so how could that benefit South Florida?”
Easy.
While South Florida was busy cleaning up against UCF by the score of 64-12, Rutgers was having to come back from an early 14-0 deficit at Syracuse before winning 38-14. They had to lean on Rice heavily in that comeback, as he rushed for 196 yards on 36 carries.
Let me tell you, playing a Thursday game after that kind of a workload is going to leave him gassed tonight against a very talented South Florida stop unit.
The Bulls secondary will take care of Teel, of that I have no doubt. All South Florida needs to do is stack the line with their front-seven in an effort to stop Rice and the Heisman hopeful won’t have enough gas left in the tank to finish the job as the game goes on.
South Florida is on an 11-3 ATS run overall; including a 7-1 ATS mark during its eight-game winning streak. The Bulls also sport a 7-4 ATS record in their last 11 games as a road favorite.
Lay the small number with South Florida as they prove their worthiness of the nation’s No. 2 ranking.

10 Dime –

RED SOX (With Beckett as listed pitcher)
Take the Red Sox for the win in Game 5 of the ALCS.
It’s easy, really. Win or go home if you’re a member of the Boston Red Sox.
There’s no other pitcher I would rather have on this roster than Josh Beckett starting this game.
Beckett has been the lone bright spot for the Red Sox in the ALCS and I expect him to bring his A-game tonight.
The Indians will counter with C. C. Sabathia and he’s struggled in his two playoff starts this year. The one thing the Red Sox will do tonight is show patience at the plate, forcing Sabathia to come after them.
But the big left-hander has had control issues in his two playoff starts and he could be in for an early exit once again tonight if he continues that trend.
The Tribe will be chomping at the bit in an attempt to advance to the World Series, but with Beckett standing in the way they’re going to have to wait for Game 6 for that opportunity.
Take the Red Sox for the win tonight as they keep their hopes at reaching the Fall Classic alive.

Stan Sharp

CFB Side

Double-Dime bet304 TCU -3.5 (-110) BetUS vs 303 Utah

Analysis: Stan has made a Big Wager on TCU as this is one of their BIGGEST Games of the Year. TCU returns home after playing Wyoming & Stanford on the road in back to back weeks. TCU won but didn't cover last week at Stanford but Stan feels they were looking ahead to this crucial TV game tonight. TAKE TCU as Stan's MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE GAME OF THE YEAR and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY.

TCU -3.5

Re: Thursday Service Picks and Free Consensus Reports:

Jeff Bonds

NHL Money Line

Double-Dime bet57 NYR (-125)BetUS vs 58 ATL

Analysis: The Atlanta Thrashers will be playing its first game since firing head coach Bob Hartley, who led the team to a club-record 43 wins and 97 points last season in winning the Southeast Divsion.

This is also a playoff rematch - with the Rangers sweeping the Thrashers last season - outscoring them17-6 in the process.

Normally this would be a REVENGE GAME, but with last year's coach off the bench - expect a beleaguered home team.

It's also tough times in net for Atlanta - with netminders Kari Lehtonen and Johan Hedberg giving up goals with great regularity.

Expect this to be a breakout performance for the 2007 Rangers, after losing two of their three games against a very solid Ottawa Senators club. New York beats up on the Southeast Division - winning 10 of its last 11 games and 20-8 agianst teams with a losing record.

Rangers goaltender Henrick Lundqvist will be a confident netminder on Thursday night - knowing he posted a solid 5-1-2 record and 2.11 GAA against the Thrashers last season.

The final clincher - the road team is 20-9-1 in the last 30 meetings and the Rangers are 4-0 in the last four meetings overall.

Larry Ness' LEGEND Play-CFB (2-0 in FB '07 and 7-1 in CFB regular season since '05!)-Saturday

My LEGEND Play is on UNLV at 9:00 ET. Things have fallen apart at Colo St fairly quickly for Sonny Lubick. Lubick built an impressive resume at Fort Collins (eight bowls in a 10-year span from 1994-2003) but the Rams have gone 4-7, 6-6 (crushed 51-30 by Navy in the Poinsettia bowl) and 4-8 the last three years. Now in his 15th season, Lubick's Rams are 0-6 SU (1-5 ATS) and own the nation's second-longest active losing streak, at 13 in a row (2-11 ATS)! He's hinted this may be his last year and that may be a good idea. CSU has won 10 of its last 11 meetings with UNLV, including the last six in Las Vegas but the three most recent meetings in Sin City, have been decided by a total of just seven points (with MUCH superior CSU teams!). QB Hanie really misses injured WR Sperry and it doesn't help that he's getting sacked almost three times per game. The defense (formerly a Lubick staple) is ATROCIOUS, allowing 32.7 PPG and 211.5 RPG on the ground (109th). UNLV is MUCH better this year, although the team is off three straight losses. HC Mike Sanford has not lived up to expectations so far, winning two games in each of his first two seasons and enters this game 2-5. However, the Rebels outplayed Wisconsin at this site earlier TY (lost 20-13 as 25 1/2-point 'dogs!), crushed Utah 27-0 (as eight-point dogs) and led BYU 7-6 last Saturday night at the half, before losing (but covering), 24-14! RB Summers (568 YR / 4.7 YPC) should have a "field day" vs CSU and QB Travis Dixon has done a reasonable job at QB, after starter Hinds was lost before the season began to an injury. CSU's last win came vs UNLV (28-7 LY in Fort Collins), a fact the Rebels are well aware of. Sanford got his team to play its best game of the season here vs Utah (where he was the OC before taking the UNLV job) and I see the Rebels being "sky high" for this one, too. UNLV's defensive front seven has matched up well at this venue vs Wisconsin, Utah and BYU. Why not vs the "free-falling" Rams? No reason! LEGEND Play on UNLV.

Good Luck...Larry

Re: Thursday Service Picks and Free Consensus Reports:

Jimmy The Moose

Game: New York Islanders at Washington Capitals
Oct 18 2007 7:05PM

Prediction: Washington Capitals

Reason: The New York Islanders are 3-3 on the season but 2 of their 3 losses have come on the road. In 3 road games the Islanders are allowing an average of 5.00 goals per game. In their last 11 games played vs. Southeast Opponents the Islanders are 3-8. The Capitals are a lot more talented this season than they have been over the last few years. Washington has only played 1 home game this season, a 2-0 victory. The Capitals are 27-9-3 in the last 39 meetings between the clubs.

Play on the Capitals -.

DAVE PRICE
NCAAF

1 Unit on Rutgers +3

This is South Florida’s first significant Big East road test and it will not pass. This #2 ranking is like winning a BCS title for the Bulls who have only had a football program for 11 years. Rutgers’ All-American Ray Rice is the key here. Rice ran for 202 yards on 35 carries and two TDs last season against the Bulls. Rutgers knocked off then-No. 3 Louisville 28-25 at home Nov. 9 for its most recent victory over a top 10 squad last season. Rutgers likes to play the underdog roll. They’ll get that chance again this week. Take Rutgers as Ray Rice will not be stopped

Re: Thursday Service Picks and Free Consensus Reports:

Jason Firestone

Play Rutgers +2.5 for 2 units
Those of you who have been with me for a while know my stance on games like this in College Basketball. You all also know that CB-Ball is my best sport. I am going to use some of the same reasoning here that I do in College Hoops in hopes of getting a nice start to the Football weekend. You guys know that we love to bet against SMALL CONFERENCE team making their first appearance in the Top 25. Now while the Big East is getting Bigger, South Florida is still not anywhere close to being ready for a Top 3 National Ranking. Rutgers knows all about the situation that the Bulls are in here. Last year, it was Rutgers who lost a game when all cylinders were clicking, losing any shot of playing for a Championship. They would love nothing more than to do the same to the Bulls here who have exploded on to the Big East scene. After starting the season in dominating fashion, Rutgers lost two very winnable games at home. Last week, they bounced back to beat a bad Syracuse team, however they looked as if they have let out all the kinks in their offense. This team will not lose 3 straight Home Games! In their wins this year, Rutgers has allowed only 10 points per game. In their losses however, that number climbed to 31. I don't feel as if S. Florida can score at that pace in this game. I feel as if the Rutgers defense will step up in a huge way in this one slowing a very over-rated offense, in my mind anyway, down. Look for the Knights to control the pace of the game with Ray Rice who will step his game up in this HUGE Big East game.

Rutgers wins 27-24 on a late fg!

Re: Thursday Service Picks and Free Consensus Reports:

Drew Gordon Thursday Plays:
Today's Games...

300,000♦ Utah

100,000♦ Red Sox

Utah- Several reasons to like the Utes here, but none bigger than their signal caller, Brian Johnson, who finally has the Utah offense firing on all cylinders. They've topped 500+ total yards two weeks in a row, and shouldn't have much trouble against a Horned Frogs defense that has gotten torched in their last two contests.
If you watched TCU's last two games, you saw their defense get demolished for a combined 60 points on 730 total yards! Its plain as day that this TCU defense sorely misses its two stalwarts on the D-line, Blake and Vess. Look for Utah to exploit this weakness, using Johnson and Mack (who's been on fire) to run all over the Horned Frogs.
Also consider Utah's defense, which statisically maybe similar to TCU, but over the last 3 weeks has been solid. Even limiting Louisville to 35 points at Papa John's Stadium ain't half bad, when you consider what Brohm and the Cardinals have been doing offensively this season. While TCU's offense "appears" to be back on track, only once this season have they scored more than 3 TDs. But didn't they show improvement against Stanford, scoring 38 points? No, the fact of the matter is Stanford's defense is ranked 106th in the nation.
Bottom line, Utah's offense will score early and often against this sputtering TCU defense, which immediately puts the Horned Frogs offense in a bind, as playing in comeback mode isn't their specialty. While neither team can afford to lose this conference game, the Utes have the edges necessary on both sides of the ball to keep this one razor close, with the outright upset a definate possibilty.
Take Utah plus the points over Texas Christian as your top-rated play of the day.

Red Sox- Momentum is strong thing, but two things override the momentum the Indians have built in winning 3 straight: Josh Beckett and the Red Sox bats against lefties.
Do I even need to tell you Josh Beckett is the man? He allowed 2 runs over 6 solid innings in the ALCS opener, easily outpitching Sabathia. He was even better in the Divisional Series opener, getting the shutout win over a baffled Angels club, allowing just 4 hits overall! There's no reason to believe he won't produce another impressive effort tonight at Jacobs, period.
Speaking of Sabathia, I told you in the series opener that the Red Sox have been killing lefties, batting .368 against them over their last 10 games. They've also won 6 of their last 7 contests against left-handed starters, including the series opener, when they crushed Sabathia for 8 runs in just 4 1/3 innings! That's as strong a case against a lefty as I've seen in a while, plain and simple. Look for Boston, and especially the meat of their lineup, Ortiz, Ramirez, and Lowell to deliver tonight.
I know the Red Sox haven't played well on the road this postseason, but this is the match up they wanted. They got Beckett on the mound fully-rested and ready to rock, not to mention another crack at Sabathia, whom they dominated in Game 1. Up 3 to 1, there's some room for a letdown here, as the Indians have relatively cruised the last two... Look for Boston to extend this series behind their ace tonight at Jacobs.
Take the Red Sox behind Beckett over the Indians in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Re: Thursday Service Picks and Free Consensus Reports:

The Hot Corner

Today's best bet: Boston Red Sox (-120) over CLEVELAND INDIANS

Who better to keep Boston alive than big-game pitcher Josh Beckett, who is 2-0 in this year's playoffs and tossed a two-hit shutout for Florida to spark its rally from a 3-1 deficit to Chicago en route to the 2003 World Series title. Indians ace C.C. Sabathia gave up eight runs to the Sox in Game 1 and has lost his last three home starts to them.
