Full Disclosure: I think I am oh fer the seaosn in Pac 10 betting so far this year, but I am undaunted by that.
Thursday night action brings the AP #1 team in the nation playing at home under the lights against a UCLA team that is completely falling apart. UCLA is fighting suspension, injuries, and bad football skills while going against a team that has put up points like no other team this season. This line opened at Oregon -21.5 and has been skyrocketing ever since. The line as I write this is sitting at -25 and it could very easily climb to 26.5 by game time. We are gonna take those points. UCLA plays Oregon tough every year and this year will be no different. They could easily lose by 3 TDs but thats all we are rooting for at this point.
You get a free bonus pick because we are on such a roll in Thursday night games (and to make up for anyone who is following those crazy Saturday pick guys who are apparently running some sort of 2nd level thinking picks that arent designed to make us a profit). Over/Under 61 is an absolute lock. Oregon by themselves are averaging 54 points per game. How could any sucker take the under in a game like that? I am that sucker. UCLA keeps this game close enough to cover and that is not because they have the offense to keep up with the Ducks. Both teams have top 15 running games and they are gonna keep the clock moving all night long. This one ends in the area of 37-17 and we laugh all the way to the bank Friday morning.
