Trending topics at headquarters Monday morning included Frank Beamer, Josh Morgan, and vulgarity. Â A Bills/Ravens parlay salvaged the weekend but we certainly intended to make more than twelve bucks. Â Let’s try it again.
First, our results so far.
I know, I know, Iâ€™m killing us.Â I shouldâ€™ve known better to pick Beamer Ball and those turkeys laid a big egg for us at Pitt last week.Â I need this one & Iâ€™m heading west to get back on track.Â UCLA has the nationâ€™s leading rusher in Jonathan Franklin, a 3-0 record & an offense that can put up points.Â Itâ€™s been a nice turn around job by Jim Mora Jr. so far.Â They face 1-0 Oregon State who boasts the best run defense in the PAC-12 but theyâ€™ve only played one game, at home against an offensively challenged Wisconsin team, so the numbers are a bit skewed.Â Franklin will run wild and Iâ€™m taking Bears over Beavers.Â Â Bruins -7
At some point on Saturday Iâ€™ll be upset that I didnâ€™t take Tennessee -33 at home over Akron or Air Force -10.5 at UNLV.Â Come on UCLA!
Titans RB Chris Johnson has carried the ball 19 times for 21 yards through two weeks. Â But it’s not his fault… Â just ask him! Â ”It’s a situation where I’m only going to be as good as my is line going to be, so we have to work together and get better together,” Johnson said. Â That’s the kind of stuff that should endear him to his teammates. Â Detroit squeaked by the Rams and Week 1 and hung tough in San Fran on Sunday night. Â Time for the Lions to remind everyone that they’re a playoff contender. Â DETROIT -3.5
