The Jets picked up a much needed win last week in Oakland. Granted it was the Raiders but New York was falling fast with three straight losses after opening the season with three straight wins. Those last two defeats could have gone either way as the setback against the Bills came in overtime while the loss in Miami came in the final seconds. This means it is payback time for New York who has lost two straight meetings with Miami after winning five straight in this series prior to that. The Jets have Jacksonville on deck so there is obviously no chance of a lookahead here as the division rival will be the full focus this week. The Dolphins are coming off a heartbreaking loss against New Orleans last week as they blew a three-touchdown lead and allowed the Saints to outscore them by a 22-0 score in the 4th quarter. The defense was lit up for 414 yards which was no big surprise as New Orleans is rolling on offense but it was the two interception returns for touchdowns that were the real difference. The last one came with under two minutes remaining which sealed the cover for the Saints. That game was the first bad one for Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne who had made two straight solid starts prior to this. He did not play very well in relief of Chad Pennington back against San Diego, as he allowed a pick-six there also, but he cannot be faulted for that one. After three straight home starts, Henne will be making his first road start of the season and it comes in a tough environment against a team out for revenge. The Jets have ran for over 300 yards in each of the last two weeks and while that is not going to happen again, the running game can still take some of the pressure off rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez who was in a big tailspin during that three-game skid. He was not exactly perfect last week against Oakland but he did not need to be and he will look to duplicate what he did in the first meeting against the Dolphins and that was play a mistake free game. On the other side, the Jets will have to contend with the Miami running game that has been solid in recent weeks. New York is feeling the loss of Kris Jenkins in stopping the run but the last two games they have been pretty solid, holding the Bills to 142 yards on 42 carries and the Raiders to 119 yards on the ground. Now it is time to save some face. Linebacker Bart Scott is definitely out for some payback. “Our pride is on the line,” he said. “Everything I stand for is on the line. Everything I represent is on the line.” For the first time in a long time, Scott was speechless after that first meeting. “That might be the second time I’ve ever been embarrassed as a defense.” As mentioned the rushing game has been solid for the Jets and while Miami is fourth in the NFL in rushing defense, it is not in a good spot. The Dolphins are 2-14 ATS in their last 16 games against teams averaging 150 or more rushing ypg. Also, the Jets are 23-9-1 ATS in their last 33 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game while Miami is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in its previous game. 3* New York Jets
With a bye week to prepare and with this one being played on a neutral field, Georgia has an excellent opportunity to keep this one within the number against a struggling Florida offense. Plus, the Dawgs will be out for blood after getting annihilated by the Gators last season. Georgia is on an impressive 17-6 ATS run in road games after a bye week and 10-5-1 ATS in neutral site contests against ranked teams. Plus, most all of Florida’s offense is coming on the ground and Georgia is on a 12-3 ATS run in road games versus good rushing teams averaging 200 or more rushing yards/game. With Florida moving the ball on the ground, the clock keeps moving, making these 14.5 points even more valuable. Take the points.
Ai Simulator 3* graded play on LA-Lafayette as they face Florida International set to start at High Noon EST. LAL is a perfect LA LAFAYETTE is 6-0 ATS (+6.0 Units) after a playing a game where 70 total points or more were scored over the last 2 seasons. In last week’s game LAL lost to Florida Atlantic by the score of 51-29. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 22-7 on the money line for 76% winners and making 38 units since 2004. Play on a road team versus the money line after going over the total by 28 or more points total in their last three games and winning between 51% and 60% of their games on the season. This system has averaged a +204 dog and LAL is right in the neighborhood at +180. The AiS shows a 74% probability that LAL will lose this game by 5 or fewer points and has a 51% probability of winning the game. Take LA-Lafayette.
John Ryan is going to charge just $35 dollars for this play that ranks among the strongest he has ever released in his 16-year career. It is further reinforced by his extensive research featuring an 85% winning system + game dependent angles sporting a 32-7 ATS mark for 82% winners. He is 13-6 for 68% ATS L19 plays.
Western Kentucky actually qualifies in a some decent contrary technical situations this week as winless underdogs are actually a solid play after back-to-back ATS losses. However, this angle works because the favorite usually overlooks their inferior opponent. That will not be the case this week as North Texas is just 1-6 SU and will relish at the chance to finally dominate a weaker opponents as the Mean Green have been a pointspread underdog in each of their first seven games this season.
North Texas is a veteran team that returned 16 starters this season and they won outright 51-40 at Western Kentucky last season as an 18-point road underdog. WKU is a much weaker team this season, while NTU has improved, so another double-digit win is likely for the Mean Green today.
Western Kentucky is the worst team in division I-A football this season and they have a horrendous defense that is allowing 41.9 points per game and 7.1 yards per play (versus opponents that average just 26.9 ppg and 5.3 yppl). North Texas should be able to exploit this weak defense as the Mean Green are averaging a solid 5.8 yards per play (versus opponents that allow just 5.4 yppl). North Texas is also rushing for 5.1 yards per carry (versus opponents that allow just 4.1 ypr) and will now be facing a terrible WKU run defense that allows 266 yards per game and 5.7 yards per carry (versus opponents that average just 162 yards and 4.1 ypr).
Western Kentucky has a decent rushing offense, but their passing attack is terrible as the Hilltoppers average just 5.5 yards per pass (versus opponents that allow 6.8 ypp). This non-existent aerial game makes it difficult for them to play from behind and it also lessens the chance of a backdoor cover today.
The Idaho Vandals have been one of the most pleasant surprises in the country at 6-2 straight up and 7-1 against the spread, but after being underrated all year, they may now have crossed over to overrated status here vs. Louisiana Tech.
Please note that six of the seven covers by Idaho this season have come in an underdog role, and the only time they were favored, they covered vs. a terrible Hawaii team that has a worse defense than Idaho does.
Yes, the Vandals can score on most teams, but points will not come as easy vs. the stiff Bulldogs defense, and we do not trust the Idaho defense to win this game for them. After all, that unit is surrendering a poor 30.8 points and a whopping 401.6 total yards per game, and they were exposed big time when Nevada hung a 70 on them last week.
Conversely, Louisiana Tech is much more defensive oriented, as they are only allowing 22.1 points per game. They have done an excellent job of containing passing attacks, as they only allow 6.8 yards per pass attempt. That should neutralize Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle somewhat here, as should the fact that the Bulldogs running game, which is averaging 172.0 rushing yards per game, is quite capable of keeping the Vandals offense on the sideline.
The bottom line here is that Louisiana Tech has the far superior defense and they have an excellent running game, a couple of traits we love to see in any underdog.
CFB Free Pick: Louisiana Tech +3 (-110)

On Saturday the System Club Play is on Air Force. Game 169 at 4:00 eastern. Air Force fits a solid system here that will play against Colorado.St. What we want to do is play against any home dog from game 4 out with a .666 or less win percentage that comes in off a home favored loss at -3.5 or more in there last game and they lost by 12 or more points. These struggling home pups are just 5-21 ats since 1980 off their upset home loss. Colorado.St lost 42-28 last week to San Diego St. The Rams also have revenge from last years 38-17 pasting by Air Force. However the Rams are 0-7 ats with revenge after allowing 35 or more in their last game. The line has been moving all week in this one. On Monday the game opened with Air Force as a 3.5 point favorite. Now the line is almost seven. I expect Air Force will get the win and cover as they are flat out better than the Rams. Last week they took Utah to overtime before losing 23-16.They have a defense that is 140 yards better,are 9-1 vs losing teams and 8-0 ats on the road when the total is 42.5 to 49. On Saturday I have a tremendously deep card led by the MAC Goy,The BIG 18-2 Dog system play of the week in a game the dog should win outright. The 45-5 Blowout system play which has cashed 4 of the last 5 weeks and 3 Triple angle Dominator Power angles which have cashed twice already this year.NBA will be added tot he night report as will any off shore steam plays. College football has been solid this year and I expect another big day on Saturday. Take Air Force as the Saturday System club play. RV.

Nebraska vs. Baylor – Free Pick: Baylor +13
Yes, Baylor…. Nebraska may be mad about last weeks embarassing loss to Iowa State, but that does not mean they will definitely win here on Saturday. Actually I think Baylor could win this game out right. Baylor might be struggling on offense right now without their star QB Griffith lost for the season, but their defense is holding it together relatively well. Nebraska has not been able to do anything on offense and that showed last week. News flash for Nebraska backers they have not faced any defenses worth a darn. Overall they have faced an average 79th ranked defense, and in my eyes are over rated. Zac Lee has to be better if he is starting here and he probably will be I guess it can’t be any worse, but don’t be surprised to see Baylor take some chances here at home. This team wants to win, and the passing game is capable still of putting some yards on Nebraska who has faced an average 61st ranked passing attack. Look for htis to be a low scoring game as the Corn Huskers are really struggling as of right now. As bad as Baylor has been this might be their one and only shot at a win so look for them to come out motivated – Courtesy of Freddy Wills
Michigan State vs. Minnesota – Free Pick: Over 46 points
A pair of good Big 10 offenses meet, though the defenses are suspect. Spartan Coach Mark Dantonio has gotten good production out of sophomore QB Kirk Cousins (9 TDs, 4 INTs), averaging 27 ppg along with freshman RB Larry Caper. But the defense is a concern, and Michigan State is 18-12-1 over the total the last two+ seasons. Minnesota is 29-22 over the total the last four+ years with a strong offense and suspect defense. Play Michigan State/Minnesota Over the total. – Courtesy of Jim Feist
Cincinnati vs. Syracuse – Free Pick: Cincinnati -14.5
Take Cincinnati -14.5 over Syracuse: The Bearcats didn’t miss a beat spanking Louisville 41-10 behind second-string QB Collaros. Regardless of whether Pike is available or not, Cincinnati should have little difficulty blowing out bad Orange team here before BCS run of B2B2B homies vs UConn, West Virginia, Illinois and at Pittsburg. Cinn won 30-10 laugher last year when it took “The Cuse” 22 minutes to get first down. The Orange should be fat and happy after rare win last week over Akron. BCats bring the heat on Paulus (9-10 TD/Int) who will throw a pick and Cinn fourth in NCAA in picks. Don’t think “Style Points” won’t be on Kelly’s mind after seing teams drop in the polls last week. Cincinnati 49-13. – Courtesy of Dennis Macklin
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. North Texas and Western Kentucky both have awful defenses, and the two teams have combined to cash ten straight ‘over’ tickets. On this ‘over’ binge, the Hilltoppers have allowed at least 30 points in each of their contests. North Texas has allowed at least 37 in each of its L/5. The Mean Green will use RB Lance Dunbar a ton on Saturday. Of late, he has been absolutely unstoppable. The sophomore has run for 635 yards and 11 TDs in his L/4 games combined. Dunbar has to be salivating at the prospects of rushing against a WKU defense that ranks 119th in the nation at 266.3 yards per game. Even though the Hilltoppers opened up the season by scoring just 27 points in their first three games combined, they’ve reached an average of 22.0 PPG since then. All of the numbers should be on the rise in another shootout this weekend.
