Tonight's game with Western Kentucky and Louisiana Tech is ripe for what I refer to as the 3 way. Betting the game total and both team totals over. As of last night the game was set at LTech - 2 & 61. Both of the teams play up tempo, and while WKU struggled last week they showed in the 4th quarter what they are capable of. This game should be a track meet and defense is a 2nd thought. Over 61 is the play. And to find the team totals we use the following formula
X (WKU) + Y (LA Tech) = 61. Y= X+2
x + x+2 = 61. 2x=59 x=29.5 y= 31.5 (x+2). 29.5+31.5 =61
There are your team totals for the game. Depending on fluctuations with the line these totals will adjust. But bottom line, each team is more than capable of scoring 5 touchdowns. When betting a team total we don’t bet over a number like 27.5 because we think a team can score 28. Instead bet the team total when you expect that side to score 35+. Official pick is this game over 61, but if you have a little wiggle room the 3 way over is play!
Pats -7 vs Steelers. The Pats annoy me…they win Super bowls and still like to play victim. Saint Tommy was innocent, the NFL just hates their success blah blah blah. Here is what I know about Coach Belichick. He is basically a giant middle finger. Hoodie with no sleeves, doesn’t smile ever, and my favorite…the “F you Touchdown”. Don’t expect the Pats to take their foot off the gas in games this year. Beating up on a bad team, they won’t be putting the ball in the freezer. Tonight Pittsburgh’s new defense is going to get quite a test . The Steelers haven’t enjoyed a lot of success in Foxborough and I just don’t see the Pats losing this game. 7 may sound big, but considering better Defensive Steeler teams were beat by 20+ in the last few trips to New England, Tommy’s boys are the play.
