CFB Week One–Saturday

With the start of high school sports this week, I am running behind, so this post will be rolled out in phases today, starting with the noon game.

After a 1-4 start Thursday, my ratings went 6-2 ATS on the Friday slate. I had only one actual bet last night, Wisconsin -10.5. They won by 49 in the Jonathan Taylor Heisman campaign launch.

Florida Atlantic34.65Ohio St11.152.17-25.67-27.5
South Alabama53.31Nebraska21.181.48-33.61-35.5
East Carolina43.81NC State26.582.88-20.11-17.5
Miss St15.7UL Lafayette39.16023.4618.5
Ball State44.27Indiana25.480-18.79-18

Of the early slate, I took Toledo +12. It has since moved to 10.5, however. I also have Miss St -18.5 in a neutral site game

Insert joke about bloggers and basements here…

The next slate…

Louisiana Tech35.48Texas19.542.23-18.17-20

Nothing real strong here. I lean Northwestern, I lean North Carolina (that line opened at 9.5 and has moved to 12). Texas is a team I might be fading this year as well. I took Duke on the show this week, hoping for a back door cover, but have not pulled the trigger just yet. I was hoping for late Alabama public money.

New Mexico St50.86Washington St21.422.94-32.38-33.5
Fresno St28.93USC20.922.73-10.74-14
Notre Dame13.55Louisville34.451.4419.4617.5

Louisville was +20, and I liked them at that number, but might be backing Notre Dame -17.5 now after a significant line move. I also lean Oklahoma to cover here, although I want to see Houston QB D’Eriq King ball out here in a big game for him. Dude reminds me of Antwan Randle El.
