Week 0 is in the books and I hit on my Illinois +7 action. Labor Day weekend brings us a bonanza of college football. I’ll be in Atlanta for the Alabama v Miami (Fla) game. To make myself feel old, the last time these two teams played, I was a student at Alabama. I’ll never forget Keith Jackson saying “Teague’s got the ball.”
I have my action for the week and am starting the first week at 1-0. Not playing every Top 25 and SEC this season. Instead, I will focus on the actual action and go into greater detail on the play. This week I picked five games and a 4 leg parlay. I have Louisiana (+9) at Texas. The Cajuns have 20 of 22 starters back from a very good team. Oklahoma (-26.5) will be the road team at home against Tulane. Hurricane Ida has relocated the game and I was taking OK either way. I like the Over (52.5) when La Tech plays at Miss St. I’ll be rowing the boat with Minnesota (+13.5) when they host Ohio St. Each of these games also are in my parlay. Lastly, I am taking UGA (+3) against Clemson despite the WR injuries for the Bulldogs.
For my futures action I made some plays that I don’t expect to pay off, but the favorites were so favored that these bets were worth the outside shot. Nevada +450 to win the MWC. UNC +900 to win the ACC. Wisconsin +900 to win the Big 10. Ohio +700 to win the MAC. Oklahoma +750 to win the CFP. I also have a parlay at +750 that has Alabama, Ohio St, Oklahoma, and Boise St each winning their respective conferences.
How the numbers work for betting: One can bet any dollar amount desired. Always stay within not only budget, but what you are willing to lose. However, the +/- system is based on a $100 bet. Therefore, +450 on a $100 bet would win $450 and pay $550. So, whatever dollar amount you place, adjust accordingly.
