    Welcome to the Weekend open thread that has some college ball and World Cup Rugby for some added sportiness!

    THE RUGBY WORLD CUP (no bets placed)

    Saturday 0315AM England Versus Australia…The boys form OZ won’t win this. The English side is too good this year.

    Saturday 0615 AM Ireland versus New Zealand. All Blacks win this. It will be one hell of a game tho.

    Sunday 0315 Wales versus France. The Valleys will sing when Wales destroy France.

    Sunday 0615 AM Japan versus Sud Afrika. Japan beat Scotland and Ireland to get to the knock out round and they are the host country. Springbok Reality will hit them squarely in the mouth. It was a great run for Japan and they played great. There are three places in the world where Rugby is a religion, Wales, New Zealand, and South Africa.

    NCAA FOOTBALL @ $100 a game

    #9 Florida at South Carolina – Sat, Oct 19, 12:00 PM ET…onine is giving 4.5 to the ‘Cocks. Nope. Gators eat chickens.

    #12 Oregon at #25 Washington – Sat, Oct 19, 3:30 PM ET…Oregon is over rated again this year, but they are giving 2.5 to Washington State. This could be an upset. The home team always gets 3 points for home field advantage, meaning this game is a tie in the eyes of Vegas. But, I am taking Oregon to cover.

    #16 Michigan at #7 Penn State – Sat, Oct 19, 7:30 PM ET…Online is giving M 8.5 @ Happy Valley. M’s defense is pretty good and that will help M beat this spread.

    Tennessee at #1 Alabama – Sat, Oct 19, 9:00 PM ET…The team formerly known as the Vols are giving 35 on the road. I’m not going anywhere hear this.

    #14 Boise State at BYU – Sat, Oct 19, 10:15 PM ET…The Mormons are 6.5 Dogs and won’t beat this spread.

    Townhall has a great piece today.


    The Trump Doctrine is really just a fancy name for the common sense view that America’s leaders should use American power to advance the interests of Americans. And that’s why the elite hates it


    The line about zobmie Milton Friedman is classic and shows, as I have argued to death on this blog, that so called conservatives don’t understand what Friedman and Smith for that matter were saying.

    15/30 so far…1000/$1000. I was 1/4 last week. I’m doing much better this year than last. Last year at this point I was 29/57 750/$100. I’m even as of now, %50 right, %50 wrong. 15 winner and 15 losers. And I corrected a math error 15/30 is even with each bet at $100, not $200 down. I gotta quit trying to do this on my phone.

    I started looking at the games Tuesday night:

    Friday Night:

    #20 Virginia at Miami – Fri, Oct 11, 8:00 PM ET…as of Tuesday night, VA was a 2.5 dog. I’ll take that for the Cavs to beat the spread.


    #6 Oklahoma at #11 Texas – Sat, Oct 12, 12:00 PM ET…Betradar has OK as 11.5 point favorites…In THIS GAME??? no way. Texas beats that spread.

    #1 Alabama at #24 Texas A&M – Sat, Oct 12, 3:30 PM ET…as of TUesday there is no line. The line is 17.5. TAMU can beat that spread.

    USC at #9 Notre Dame – Sat, Oct 12, 7:30 PM ET…USC is an 11 point dog on the road at the Catholics in Indiana. ‘SC won’t beat this spread.

    #10 Penn State at #17 Iowa – Sat, Oct 12, 7:30 PM ET…PSU is a 3 point favorite and will beat this spread on the road.

    #7 Florida at #5 LSU – Sat, Oct 12, 8:00 PM ET…The Gators are 14 point dogs at Death Valley and beat the spread.
