Two teams are meeting in Ann Arbor Saturday. One team is coming into its own and the other team is flailing about trying to find itself. One team had a coach that started the year in the Hot Seat and has clawed his way off the list. The other coach started the season in the Hot Seat and moved down and has recently moved his way a lot higher. One team will probably go bowling (and be bowl eligible after Saturday) and the other team is destined to stay home for the holidays. You figure it out with respect to whom I’m referring to, but The FMQ knows which way he’s going to bet it.
We’re going to get greedy this week. All I’m going to say is you may want to follow me on this one. For whatever reason, these all look crystal clear in my eyes.
Illini @ Michigan (-3): Really? Vegas, have you been paying attention? The Illini went into Happy Valley and destroyed PSU…They also hung tough with tSuckeyes. Floyd is out on M’s Defense, not that it makes a huge difference. This has to be the gimme of the week and its right here in our backyard. Take the Illini and the 3 for $100
Washington @ Oregon (-35): Oh let’s see…The Ducks have covered all but one spread this year. Locker is out of the game this week. Washington doesn’t have a defense. Oregon admittedly doesn’t “Know how to play slow once they’re ahead.” I’m surprised this wasn’t 47... I’ll take the Ducks and lay the 35 for $80.
Alabama @ LSU (+6.5): LMU is getting 6.5 at home. But Satan always finds a way to cover in Baton Rouge against his old team, not to mention that Alabama needs a big, stylish win here to have any hopes of a shot at the National Title Repeat…Therefore, as much as I hate to do it, I’ll take Satan and lay the 6.5 for $60.
Only 3: Illini – Oregon - Alabama: $40 pays 6 to 1: Pays $240.
Total Wagered: $280
