If you have the “itch,” and I know you do, for some early football action, I see a few solid plays coming up this weekend. On Saturday, 8/25 at 7:30PM, Colorado State hosts The Rainbow Warriors of Hawaii. The Rams can score with anyone in the country and defensively neither team defense can do diddly with the ranking Rams 84th and Rainbow Warriors 85th last season. Look for the Rams to cover 14 as well as this game going well over 56 1/2. Look for a fun, old fashion Mountain West shootout!
I would never encourage anyone to bet preseason football unless there was a good reason and tomorrow, there is. On Friday, 8/24, at 7:30PM, The New York Giants take on the New York Jets. The New York sports scene is a real drag lately…even the Yankees can’t enjoy their great season without being one upped by the history chasing Red Sox. So everyone can use a little Jets and Giants fun. These two will not face each other during the regular season and could use a real lift by beating their stadium sharing city rival. Greater upside with the Giants +2.5 over the Jets who get to call it a home game. And a low over/under at 41 makes the over an easy choice as each team wants to build offensive confidence moving forward. Giants and the over.
As for baseball, have a little fun and bet the run line. Take a shot on the Yankees to clobber the Orioles, finally, in every game this weekend. Yankees minus the runs every time! And here is a little help for first time baseball betting enthusiasts!
