1* on Texas Tech +1.5

Texas Tech is the underdog Saturday despite being undefeated on the season.  The Red Raiders are the real deal this year behind great QB play from Graham Harrell and the nation’s best WR in Michael Crabtree.  Although these two guys are among the best in the nation, it’s the compliment of weapons that makes Texas Tech so good.  Plus, an emergence of a strong defense has Texas Tech as dangerous as they’ve ever been.  Texas Tech is allowing a very respectable 21.1 points/game this season.  The Red Raiders are 8-1 ATS the week before the Texas tussle and the boys from Lubbock are 44-24 ATS in October since 1992.  Texas Tech has shown they are able to avoid letdowns the week prior to playing the Longhorns.  It will be easy to stay focused against Kansas, who broke through to make a BCS Bowl last season.  But this isn’t the same Jayhawks’ team they were a year ago.  Many weapons are gone both offensively and defensively, and QB Todd Reesing hasn’t been able to do it all on his own.  Kansas got the wind knocked out of their sails with a 45-31 loss to Oklahoma last week.  The Jayhawks are only 17-34 ATS (-20.4 Units) off a loss by 10 points or more to a conference rival since 1992.  Take Texas Tech and the points as the Red Raiders remain undefeated.

Bob Majors

Utah St. +15 vs Fresno St.

Fresno State Bulldogs (4-2; 3-0) travel to Logan Utah to play the Utah State Aggies (1-6; 1-2) in WAC conference play.

The Bullodogs have a strong rushing attach using three running backs in Lonyae Miller, Ryan Mathews, and Anthony Harding who average nearly six yards per carry.  Their passing games has been efficient, but has faltered inside the twenty yard line leaving the Bulldogs with field goals instead of touchdowns.  The defense will be the key to the football game.  Their are two primary standout starters Wilson Ramos and Jon Monga will not play.  The pass rush has been non existent this season.

The Aggies offense is averaging over 300 yards per game on offense.  QB Diondre Borel is the leading rusher who may give fits to the Bulldog defense in his running abilities.  He should be able to run and pass against the Bulldogs as they have yielded over 400 yards of total offense per game. The Aggies defense in non existent as they have allow larg chunks of yards and have done nothing to stop their opponents this season.  They also do not stop the pass or run well and have given up an average of 450 ypg.

The Bulldogs are 9-23-1 ATS in their last 33 games in October and 9-24 ATS in their last 33 games overall.  The Aggies are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4 ATS versus a team with a winning record.

We expect this game to be close and suspect the Bulldogs not to be too motivated for this game.  The generous points are very attractive here as we suggest taking the home team.

5 UNIT PLAY

(Big East GOY) Cincinnati -2.5 over UCONN

The Bearcats are 24-9-1 ATS in their last 34 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game, while the Huskies are 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Bearcats are rolling right along at 5-1, with their only loss being to Oklahoma. In that game the Sooners piled up 592 yards and 52 points on the Bearcat defense, but since then this unit has allowed just 295.3 ypg and 13.8 ppg. The Bearcat defense is 43rd overall, 13th vs. the rush and they allow just 19 ppg. The UConn Huskies started off the season at 5-0 and it was mainly due to an offense that put 29 ppg on the board, but in their 2 game losing streak the Huskies have averaged just 11 ppg. The defense also started strong for this team, allowing just 7.3 ppg in their 1st 3 games, but in their last 4 games this defense has allowed 26.5 ppg. The Bearcats are playing too well right now for them to lose this one and even though Edsall and crew have been solid at home vs. the Big East, I just don?t see them being able to dent this solid Bearcat defense for enough points to stay close.

I found a solid MONEYLINE angle for this play. I know it?s a ML Angle but with the spread at less than 3 it?s worth noting. Play on any road team that has allowed 17 points or less in 3 straight games vs. an opponent off a loss of 6 points or less. This angle is 25-3 vs. the ML the last 10 years.


4 UNIT PLAYS

(WAC GOY) TCU -30.5 over Wyoming

The Cowboys are 0-11 ATS in their last 11 vs. the MWC and 5-21-1 ATS in their last 27 games overall, while TCU is 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and 24-9 ATS in their last 33 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. So many overwhelming stats that favor the Horned Frogs in this one. Wyoming?s offense has been downright pathetic this year as they come in ranked 116th overall and in passing and they rank dead last in scoring at 9 ppg. The lone bright spot is a rushing attack that averages 160 ypg and ranks 52nd in the nation in that category. Wyoming has been shutout twice this year and held to 7 points or less in 2 other games and now they will be facing the toughest defense they faced all year. As I stated above, the running game is all that Wyoming has as the passionate puts up just 97 ypg, but that is bad news as they will be taking on a TCU defense that ranks 1st in the nation vs. the run, allowing just 20 ypg and 0.9 ypc. Wow. Overall the TCU defense is ranked 1st in total ?D? and they allow just 10.9 ppg. Wyoming may not score in this one that?s for sure. Another big indicator for this game is the only common opponent these teams have faced, BYU. Wyoming was destroyed by BYU 44-0, while TCU crushed BYU 32-7. Another telling stat for this one is the turnover differential as Wyoming is one of the worst in the nation at -19, while TCU is one of the best at +12. The stats are truly lopsided in this one and so should the final score. TCU by 35+.

Upset Special--- MCHIGAN +4 over Michigan State

The Spartans are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games following a S.U. loss and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games in October, while the Wolverines are 8-1 ATS off a DD SU loss vs. a .500 or better opponent and Rich Rodriguez is 14-0 ATS after gaining less than 125 yards passing in his last 2 games. Both teams come into this game off of blowout losses , but I feel that Michigan is in better shape to bounce back here. Spartans QB Brian Hoyer suffered a concussion last week vs. the Buckeyes and he played in only one series in the 2nd half, so he me not be at full strength for this one, which would leave the game in the hands of their running game and Michigan is not a team that you want to have to run against. Michigan allows just 121 ypg and 3.3 ypg on the year and if you take out the 231 they allowed to Penn State last week then they have allowed just 102 ypg in their previous 6 games. The Michigan offense is not that good, but they are getting better and did pile up 202 yards of rushing vs. Penn State last week and they will be facing a State defense that is 65th overall and 69th vs. the rush, allowing 145 ypg and 4.4 ypc. Michigan has been favored in 32 of the 33 games between these two teams and in that game they were a dog they won it outright. Michigan has played better at home this year and should be able to come up with enough big plays to get the upset vs. a State team that is banged up a bit. Go Blue!!!

Teaser Of The Week-- 3 Team 6 Point--- Georgia +7, Notre Dame -4 & Penn State +4


3 UNIT PLAYS

Boston College +2 over NORTH CAROLINA

The Eagles are 10-1 ATS as road dogs of less than 10 and 18-7 ATS in their last 25 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game, while the Heels are 1-9 ATS as home favs of less than 10 points, 3-14 ATS as conference home favs and 1-5 ATS before a bye week. The Eagles defense has been very good this year as they are 4th overall and 5th vs. the pass, plus they allow just 13.3 ppg, which ranks 11th. The 13 ppg that the Eagles allow is a key stat as Butch Davis is a miserable 3-19 ATS as a favorite when he fails to score 30+ points, including an 0-3 ATS mark in that scenario this year. The Heels are scoring 29.1 ppg overall this year, but inside the ACC that number drops to just 19.3 ppg. I feel the Eagles defense is just to tough for a Carolina offense that has struggled vs. good defenses this year to put much on the board in this one. It?ll be close, but BC pulls it out in the end.


Wake Forest +2.5 over MIAMI

Miami is 0-8 ATS off a SU & ATS win as a road fav and 0-10 ATS after 1 or more consecutive overs, while the Deacons are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games sevens of a season and 9-2 SU and 10-0-1 ATS as dogs of 5 or less. Wake is looking to bounce back here after a horrible 26-0 loss to Maryland last week, plus they are looking for a bit of revenge here after losing the last 4 to the Canes by an average of 45 ppg. The Deacons offense was really held in check last week, but they should bounce back vs. what I feel is a real fake Miami defense. Miami is ranked 19th in total defense, but a closer look tells a different story. Miami held an FCS opponent (Charl So.) and the worst offense in the nation (Central Fla.) to just 102 total ypg and 10.5 ppg, but in their other 5 games the Canes have allowed 362 ypg and 29.8 ppg. The Canes offense ranks103rd overall and should have problems vs. a Deacon defense that is 30th overall and 22nd in points allowed at 16.8 ppg. Despite last weeks loss the Deacons are still one of the better teams in the ACC, while Miami is still in also-ran status. Wake also has the clear coaching advantage in this one, plus they are +9 in turnovers, while the Canes are -4. Too much on the side of the Deacons to think they won?t bounce back here vs. an inferior opponent.


Georgia +1 over LSU

The Dawgs are 7-2 ATS as road dogs under Richt and 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, while the Tigers are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 home games vs. the SEC, 2-11 ATS at home vs. teams that average 6.3 ypp or more and 1-8 ATS off BB road games. After getting by their two cupcake games to open up the year, the LSU Tigers defense has looked mortal as they have allowed 333.5 ypg and 28.3 ppg in their last 4 games, which is 42 ypg and 8 ppg more than last years Championship defense allowed. Now they take on a good Georgia offense that is 25th overall and 35th in scoring at 31.7 ppg. The Georgia defense has been it?s usual stingy self as they are 12th overall, 3rd vs. the run and they allow just 17.7 ppg. The LSU offense puts up 31 ppg of their own, but it really has been an inconsistent offense and they will be facing their toughest defense to date. It?s also hard to ignore Mark Richt?s 27-4 SU record in road games, while LSU has not been a great investment at home with an 11-24 ATS mark as a home fav under Miles. The Dawgs will win this one.


2 UNIT PLAYS

Oklahoma -17.5 over KANSAS STATE

Let me get this stat out of the way from the get go. KSU has lost just 3 of their last 122 home games by 18 or more points. Having said that I still think this is a prime spot for this trend to be bucked. The Sooners come in with the 4th ranked offense overall, the 3rd in passing and they put up 46.9 ppg (3rd). Oklahoma has scored 35 or more points in all of their games this year and the 2 games they scored just 35 vs. were the against the top ranked defense in the land TCU and another good defense Texas. The KSU defense is nowhere close to that of those 2 teams. The Cats started out their creampuff part of the schedule allowing just 16 total points in their 1st 2 games, but since then this unit has been touched for 521.8 ypg and 35.4 ppg. KSU is ranked 106th overall, 94th vs. the pass and 82 in points allowed. Not good numbers when going up against the Sooners. The Wildcat offense has put up 39 ppg this year, but they will clearly be taking on their toughest defense to date. Oklahoma has just too much offensive firepower in this one to think that they can not put 45+ on the board here, while their defense will hold down the Cats enough to get at least a 3 TD win.


Oklahoma State +11.5 over Texas

Texas is 2-10 ATS as favs of less than 17, while the Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October. The Longhorns are facing their 3rd top 10 team in a row and it has to take a toll at some point. Oklahoma State may be a bit more rested here as they are off a 34-6 win vs. Baylor. Oklahoma State has the offense to keep this one close especially vs. a Texas defense that could be a bit tired after allowing 70 points their last 2 weeks. Texas wins by 7 or less here.

POWER ANGLE for this play--- Play against any home favs of 10.5 to 21 that allows 100 ypg or less on the ground, after allowing 40 yards or less rushing in their last game. Angle is 22-5 ATS the last 5- years, including 6-1 ATS this year.

3 Team 6 Point Teaser--- Kentucky +30.5, Nebraska -7 & Virginia +20


1 UNIT PLAY

Oklahoma State/ Texas Over 67

The Over is 15-1 when Texas out rushed their opponent by 100+ yards in 3 straight games and 12-0 after 3 or more spread wins in a row, while the Over is Over is 10-4 in Cowboys last 14 games in October and 23-11 in their last 34 games following a ATS win. Texas comes in ranked 10th in total offense and 2nd in scoring at 48.1 ppg, while Okie State comes in ranked 7th overall and 4th in scoring at 46.4 ppg. The Longhorn defense is ranked 39th overall, but they are way down ther in passing defense at 111th. OSU?s defense has been decent this year, but they also have had problems vs. the pass as they rank 78th in that category. Texas? last 2 games have averaged 83.5 ppg, while Oklahoma State games have averaged 67 ppg on the year. This game should be a score fest in the neighborhood of 75 points.


Rice +2.5 over Tulane

The Owls are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games following a S.U. win, while Tulane is 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and 4-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. Yes the Rice defense sucks, but they do own the 10th ranked scoring offense at 39.9 ppg, they are +7 in turnovers and they are taking on a Tulane team that was crushed in their last home game by a bad Army team and they?re getting points. I?ll side with the better team that is just 2 wins away from becoming bowl eligible.

Colorado at Missouri

Missouri opened the season with 5 straight wins until losing back-to-back games to undefeated Oklahoma St. and Texas, who are both 7-0. They return home to host Colorado on Saturday after losing at Texas, 31-56, but we find them at 9-2 ATS after losing by 21 points or more. Missouri had no trouble winning at Colorado last year, winning 55-10, and things will only ber easier in front of their home crowd, as we find Mizzou at 7-1 at home against an opponent seeking revenge.

Georgia at LSU

Getting points with the better team? That's a proposition we will always be interested in. UGA is 27-4 SU on the road during the eight-year tenure of Head Coach Mark Richt, including 7-2 ATS as a road dog with three straight outright victories. Incredibly, LSU is just 1-14 ATS when favored by more than two points under Les Miles. They are just 1-8 ATS here in Baton Rouge vs. conference opponents. The Tigers have not demonstrated the ability to beat an opponent of this caliber.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Steve Merril

South Florida vs. Louisville     
Play:Louisville +3.5

Louisville has been one of the most explosive offensive teams in the nation during the past decade, but they were a younger offense entering this season and they struggled in their season opener against a solid Kentucky defense. Louisville has improved since that 27-2 loss and has actually averaged 37.4 points in their past five games. They should have continued success today versus an overrated South Florida defense that has only faced one good offensive opponent this season when they allowed 34 points versus Kansas. South Florida is allowing just 4.3 yards per play, but has faced a very easy schedule of opponents that average just 4.5 yppl. South Florida has struggled against the two good teams they have faced this season, winning by only 3 points at home versus Kansas in a game in which the Bulls trailed 20-3, and losing outright as a 13½-point favorite versus Pittsburgh. Louisville is currently on a 4-1 SU/ATS run in their past five games and they qualify in a solid 55-27 ATS home momentum situation. The biggest improvement for the Cardinals this season is their defense as they are allowing just 23.8 points and 4.6 yards per play (versus opponents that average 5.1 yppl). The are strong versus both the run and pass, allowing just 3.1 yards per carry (versus opponents that average 4.0 ypr) and 5.8 yards per pass (versus opponents that average 6.3 ypp).

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Bobby Maxwell

Virginia Tech +5' at FLORIDA STATE 

The Hokies were riding a five-game overall winning streak and seven-game ACC road streak before going to Boston College a week ago and losing 28-23 to the Eagles.

Virginia Tech was up 10-0 before falling to Boston College, but the Hokies got a good defensive effort, returning two INTs for touchdowns last week. Look for the Hokies to come after Florida State QB Chrisitan Ponder who threw for 254 yards and one TD and no INTs in its 26-17 win at NC State.

The Hokies got a 40-21 victory as a seven-point home favorite against the Seminoles last year, outscoring Florida State 20-0 in the fourth quarter. Virginia Tech outgrained the Hokies 396-267 last year and will have another strong defensive effort today.

The Hokies are on ATS runs of 19-7 on the highway, 24-8 in ACC action, 17-4 as an underdog, 12-3 as a road 'dog since 2001, 6-2 after a straight-up loss and 11-5 in October contests. Meanwhile, Florida State is on ATS slides of 5-14 as ahome favorite, 1-4 after a win, 2-6 in October games and 2-5-1 against winning teams.

Virginia Tech will win this one with defense. They will shut down the nimble Seminole QB and get enough offense to get the win. Be sure to grab the points so we're covered in a close one. Go with the Hokies to win this one.

4♦ VIRGINIA TECH


Texas Tech +1 at KANSAS

We've got faith in the Texas Tech offense to get the job done on the road in this one.

Texas Tech went to Texas A&M last week and got a 43-25 win after a big second half that saw them outscore the Aggies 25-2. The Red Raiders have won nine straight games and they certainly know how to light up the scoreboard. They had 561 total yards a week ago and their fast-break offense makes it tough for teams to keep up.

The Red Raiders beat Kansas 30-17 back in 2005 as an 18 1/2-point favorite giving them five wins in the last six meetings with the Jayhawks.

Kansas has won 13 straight home games but none of them came against ranked opponents. The Jayhawks went to Norman, Okla. last week and fell 45-31 to the Sooners. They got the late cover as 19 1/2-point underdogs thanks to a touchdown with 58 seconds left. The worry for Kansas comes in its bad defense as they gave up 674 total yards to the Sooners, including 206 rushing yards.

Play Texas Tech to rack up the yardage and points in this one. Go with the Red Raiders.

3♦ TEXAS TECH

Greg Shaker

Boston College Eagles at North Carolina Tar Heels
Play: North Carolina -2

I have picked my spots nicely this year playing against the Boston College Eagles and it is time to do it again. I had Georgia Tech earlier this season and I also had NC State most recently verses this team. Those were not "Popular" Choices and I suspect that this one will not be either. BC goes back down south again Saturday and they will face a Butch Davis squad that is coming off a gutwrenching loss at Virginia. NC led that game throughout and lost it in the final seconds of play. I know the NC Head Coach very well and I know that what he saw did not make him a happy camper. This team has battled back from adversity all year with key early injuries that put them behind the 8 Ball. They will be ready to play hard Saturday and find themselves in a situation that requires a win. At 1-2 in the ACC, this game is a must for sure. Matt Ryan is gone to the NFL and the new BC QB is not even close to his good friend who plays for the Falcons. His 9 INT's is staggering and that does not bode well for him as he goes up against the Tarheels secondary that leads the nation with 14 Picks. Crane has been very careless with the football and that has not cost him much due to the BC Defense bailing him out. The Eagles have been very good stopping the opposition but they have faltered somewhat the last 2 weeks, allowing 54 points. A lot of that has been the ineptness of the offense in sustaining long drives. They absolutely cannot afford punting the ball deep in their territory for this one with NC having one of the better special teams in the country. The Eagles have not defended punts/nor kickoffs well this year and their last trip here to this state is evident of that. Butch Davis is a bounceback coach, and like him or not, he is a good preparer for big games. This fits that category. His team followed up their last loss to VT with a thrashing of Miami on the road. I expect that same kind of effort Saturday and will lay the 2 points.

Eastern Michigan Eagles at Ball State Cardinals

Eastern Michigan Eagles' offense will have a tough task against Cardinals' defense, while Ball State explosive offense led by Quarterback Nate Davis rips apart Eastern Michigan's powerless defense. Take the Cardinals to seize their fourth consecutive victory over Eastern Michigan. The Eagles are a dreadful 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 games versus the Cardinals.

Virginia  at Georgia Tech

Virginia Cavaliers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings against the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta. Go with the better team at home. The Home team has won and covered the spread in nine of the last 10 meetings in this series. Georgia Tech's defense is rank fifth in the country in points allowed, 11.6 per game. 

Georgia Tech -14
Under - 41


Wyoming at Texas Christian

The Cowboys will be in a bad predicament facing the Horned Frogs' defense, ranked No. 1 in the nation, allowing an average 218.5 yards per game. Expect a blowout in Fort Worth

Texas Christian -30½


UCLA at California 

California Golden Bears are 3-0 at home this season and the home team has won the last four meetings, but the UCLA Bruins have covered the spread in the last four meetings. Look for the injury riddle Bruins to make this a fight in Berkeley. The dog is 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 meetings in this series.

UCLA +17½


Tampa Bay Rays at Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies are 4-1 in Moyer’s last five home starts and 8-4 with a 2.85 ERA in 15 career starts against the Rays, but the veteran is 2-5 in his last seven interleague games and allowed eight runs in two starts of the Phillies only two defeats in the playoffs. Contrary, Matt Garza was outstanding. The right-hander posted a 1.38 ERA in two ALCS starts, but the Rays are 1-4 in Garza last 5 road starts. Take Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park in a low scoring contest, rain is in the forecast.

Philadelphia Phillies +105

The Gold Medal Club

Minnesota @ 118 Purdue 12:00 pm
PLAY PURDUE MONEY LINE

We back Purdue here knowing they have faced a much tougher schedule than Minnesota, and the Gophers are 1-7 ats vs Purdue in there previous 8 meetings. The success of Minnesota can be attributed to the fact that they not only have limited turnovers, but have dominated the clock by running the ball enabling them to accumulate a 6-1 record, but that changes today. Purdue Senior QB, Curtis Painter should have a field day against a suspect secondary, forcing Minnesota to abandon there "safe" offensive approach, and we will see Minnesota turn the ball over on Saturday. Homecoming game for the Boilermakers makes for an extra effort and quite possibly a blowout! enjoy

1 Unit on UConn +2

UConn at home in conference play has been a money play the past few years and we will dial it up here with the Huskies in a big bounce back spot.  UConn is 10-1 ATS at home the last three years in Big East play.  UConn is also 8-0 ATS in home games off a road loss against a conference rival since 1992, exploding to win these games by 8.7 ppg on average, and 7-0 ATS in home games after playing a conference game over the last 3 seasons.  UConn remember the 27-3 beat down the Bearcats put on them at Cincy last season and will have some revenge this week.

1 Unit on Ohio State +2.5

Sole possession of first place is on the line when the third-ranked Nittany Lions look to snap a 10-game road losing streak against ranked opponents when they take on No. 10 Ohio State this Saturday on ABC. The Lions are also up against another daunting statistic. They haven’t won in Columbus since 1978. But odds makers feel this is the year they get it done and have listed Penn State as 2.5-point favorites with the total set at 46.
Penn State is now 8-0 on the season and 4-0 in the Big Ten, playing the way we all expected it to when the Nittany Lions decided to join the conference. Penn State was expected to give the Big Ten another national power, but has not reached the level of Ohio State or Michigan since joining the league in 1993. Michigan and Ohio State have combined to win or share 12 Big Ten titles over the last 15 seasons while Penn State has only won two

Selection: Mississippi -7

Today Mississippi will be on the road as they take on Arkansas. We will side with Mississippi -7! Huston Nutt is going to have intense motivation and high expectations for this game after being fired by Arkansas last year following 10 years at Fayetteville. The result is an Ole miss that can cover this number with ease. Besides Nutt’s fiery vengeance, Mississippi is the superior team and the Rebels’ QB Jevan Snead is better than Arkansas‘s Casey Dick. Not only are the Rebels more consistent, but in their 2 SEC games this season Arkansas has been outscored 87-21. Ole Miss on the other hand did exceptionally well in conference games on the road playing against Alabama and Florida. We have seen big improvements from the Razorbacks recently which is largely because of RB Michael Smith. But unfortunately for Arkansas, their star RB got a concussion last week and won‘t be of much use here. Smith’s presence is questionable and if he does play, he won’t be able to meet the demands that are needed of him to pull this one off. The Rebels have an excellent run defense that allows an average of only 3.2 yards per rush. Lay the points with the superior team! Take Mississippi -7

Big Al Mcmordie

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Philadelphia Phillies
Play: Over

At 8:35pm our complimentary selection is on the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies 'over' the total. The Phillies and their fans have to be happy coming home to their first-ever World Series game at their new ballpark having split their two games in Tampa with the AL Champion Rays. And they have to be at least a little excited knowing that the one glaring weakness that Tampa as a team seemed to have going into their first-ever postseason was their inability to win consistently on the road. The Rays seemed to have turned that around, at least so far, as they have gone 3-2 on the road against two teams (the White Sox and Red Sox) with a combined 110-53 record at home during the 2008 regular season. The Phillies did not have a home record anywhere near as good as either Boston or the White Sox, and although they have yet to lose a postseason game at Citizens Bank ballpark in 2008 (outscoring their opponents there by a combined 19-10), they had the exact opposite experience last season in their first round series against Colorado, getting blanked by the Rockies in three straight games. It seems like lefthander Jamie Moyer has been pitching forever and although he has appeared in seven postseason games in his illustrious career, this is Moyer's first-ever appearance in the World Series. Look for the Rays to come out swinging against the soft-throwing Moyer and try to put a bunch of runs up early to give young, inexperienced Matt Garza a cushion. Take the 'over'.

1 Unit on UNC Tar Heels -3

UNC lost at Virginia last week but odds makers set this line at exactly what it would have been if the Tar Heels had won.  In other words, the books aren't reading anything into last week's defeat and neither are we.  The Boston College Eagles are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a SU win and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.  The Tar Heels are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and an impressive 18-6-1 ATS in their last 25 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.  We'll take the Heels in this bounce back spot.
