College Football Saturday

10-10 on College Football in 2019 up 6.53 units

Penn State -28 for 5 units. Penn State has a huge scoring defense/turnover advantage. Purdue is playing backup QB Jack Plummer who has thrown 4 interceptions in limited playing time. KJ Hamler and Sean Clifford will do enough on offense for the Nittany Lions. Penn State has won the last 8 meetings. Kyle Orton was the Purdue QB last time they beat Penn State.

Boise State -22 for 3 units. Can’t quit a good thing. Boise young QB Bachmeier and the defense get the job done. UNLV’s strength on offense is running the ball, but Boise State excels at stopping the run. Air Force has a better rushing attack than UNLV and Boise State covered against them. I expect a 38-10 type game.

West Virginia +11 for 1 unit. Texas has a few injuries on defense. Look-ahead game with Oklahoma next week. WVU is a tough place to have your first true road game. Texas wins by a touchdown or less. The Mountaineers rushing attack keeps them in the game.

Playoff Baseball Friday

92-83 on MLB last season and went up 34.31 units

44-40 on MLB this season down 1.80 units

2-1 on playoffs up 3.63 units

Acuna didn’t hustle. Melancon got the loss for the Braves last night. Melancon now has a 36.00 Playoff ERA this season. Dodgers easily beat the Nationals.

Cardinals at -125 for 4 units. Flaherty vs Folty. Flaherty was NL pitcher of the month in August and September. Folty is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA against the Cards this season. Keeping it simple today.

I don’t have a good feeling about Rays/Astros or Yankees/Twins, but Dodgers/Nats tonight should be a fun pitcher’s duel with Kershaw and Strasburg on the mound.
