Western Michigan +13

They are playing Michigan and Western covers against the big ten the last 8 years. They cover the spread here again and are a good play! This is the 3:30 game on ABC so get in on this!.

Nevada +15

They are playing Notre Dame and I like the play here take the points and you will like the outcome! This is also the 3:30 game.

Missouri vs. Illinois over under of 61

The trends point to teams not being ready so far and this game is at a neutral field so look for the under to hit just barely, but whats a goo under if you don’t sweat it out!

Georgia +5

Georgia is Playing Oklahoma State at OSU at 3:30 est. Georgia under Mark Richt always wins these away non conference games and they will win this game also! Joe Cox may be sick but he is going to play. You are getting+170 on this game so take the power conference team from the SEC Georgia and you will be happy!

Well those are my plays of the day….and remeber to check back every Sat. Morining to get your plays of the day!

 

College Football Games that could have Fights!

Oregon v Boise State This is my top five list of games that could feature a fight in them this weekend. After, the great sucker punch the Oregon player did I was inspired to think there has to be a list of other games that might feature a fight or random sucker punch:

5:  Nevada Vs. Notre Dame: I think that because Claussen may get punched by his own team if he does not win this game

4:  Western Michigan Vs. Michigan: There may be a fight in this game from all the long practices that Michigan has had! They are angry so look for them to start a fight.

3 : Virgina Tech Vs. Alabama: Alabama is fired up and has been talking smack so look out Tech they are ready to fight. Try doing some crazy punt block and you will be attacked by Alabama’s Punter!

2:   Georgia Vs. Oklahoma State: Joe Cox has the Flu and is going to be a late arrival to the game. He will be rubbed down by Richt with Vick vapo rub and this could send State into a fury from the smell!

And the number one game where a fight could occur this weekend……

1: Penn State Vs. Akron: Here is how it goes down…a Akron player accidentally runs into coach Paterno breaking his legs and hip once again sending him to the booth. The Penn State players lacking their 600 year old leader lose their minds and start punching Akron players!

Hope everyone enjoys all the games this weekend and we at the pump fake how there are no Punch’s thrown in any game but just wanted to make a little fun of the incident!

Boise State vs Oregon

NCAA Football: Boise State vs TCU DEC 23 The Oregon Ducks and the Boise State Broncos will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Bronco Stadium.

Oddsmakers currently have the Broncos listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Ducks, while the game’s total has not yet been posted.

This is definitely the game of the night this Thursday as both teams are looking for a victory to carry them towards a bcs game. A loss here by either team will be detrimental towards any serious bcs bowl consideration.

Boise State played Oregon last year and beat them 37-32 and they were 10.5 point dogs. This year playing at home they are listed as 3.5 point favorites. They still have the offense and Coach Peterson will be getting them ready to play.

I predict this game to be a shootout of sorts but Boise State will come out on top with the Final Score of 31-21. Oregon does not have what it takes to beat Boise State at home!

Oregon will try and run the ball to control the clock and keep the ball out of Boise States hands. Boise can put up points in a hurry as all WAC teams can do. They are built to score points and their defense is enough to stop the running game that Oregon will try to dominate with.

Final Score Prediction

Boise State 31-21

Boise State Covers the 3.5 and I like it big!

Look at the total points when they are released also I would say they put it at 55 and could be the under if it posts at that!

Michigan may be practicing too much?

Michigan Well Rich is taking some heat from a report that former and current players were complaining about the amount of time that they are practicing. Well before I go off on the players saying this let me say this.

1: I never knew the NCAA had a rule against this, I always thought it was a coaches decision thing and there is no way they would over work them.

2: Why are former players complaining, did Rich bench them at some point.

3: Seriously current players are saying this, what does this say about the Michigan program, I for one have never heard of allegations like this before!

Okay now let me get into ripping the players complaining! First off you got to a major college program to play football, you most likely are not a rocket scientist or anything so you go to play football! When you play football you practice, there is no just showing up for class and not studying, they don’t have rules against the amount of time a teacher expects you to spend on homework! If Rich wanted more out of you and you could not give it then you quit. I see these players as a bunch of whiners, who could not handle the two-a-days or early spring practices. These players obviously were trying to just scoot by on their talent and did not believe in practicing!

I somewhat blame all the NFL guys for this, you see constantly a guy signing late or come out of retirement once training camp has already started or is almost complete. I could see a lot of guys thinking they are good enough coming out of High School and think they don’t need to practice.

Well I am here to tell you quit your bitching! This not the NFL you have proven nothing, if I was a guy in this locker room I would be looking at the guy next to me and saying buddy are you the lazy sucker that is complaining about practicing!

Michigan did not find any inconsistency with the practices(oh what a surprise!) Well since Michigan had a problem lets check West Virgina, Rich’s former team. Well, they checked and there was no problem their either. So that’s too schools that can not find any wrong doing!

So here is a Big Pump Fake slap in the face to any player current or former who complained! You do not deserve to play on the field with any current or former Michigan player and you will most likely suck in life! Good luck complaining to your boss at McDonald’s that you are working to hard because that’s the only job you can get since you don’t want to practice you probably don’t want to study either!

Breaking down the First South Carolina game!

STEVE SPURRIER Thinking about laying some green on the Thursday night game lineup here are my picks and thoughts on the outcome!

South Carolina at N.C. State

The South Carolina Gamecocks and the North Carolina State Wolfpack will be battling on the gridiron at Carter-Finley Stadium on Thursday in season-opening action.

Odds makers currently have the Wolfpack listed as 5-point favorites versus the Gamecocks, while the game’s total has not yet been posted.

South Carolina looks to get going under Steve Spurrier, he finally has decided on a QB since Chris Smelly forced his hand and transferred to Alabama. Stephen Garcia takes the helm full time this year and looks to have improved decision making.  Can he lead the team? He may have problems with a O-line that gave up 39 sacks last year and lost some WR depth. I predict Garcia to have a good year but I do not think it will start in North Carolina!

South Carolina beat NC State last year but they did not have there defense specialist and got killed in by there lack of defensive play calling.

NC State on the other hand looks like more of a complete team returning much of their offense and Defensive. The front four Defensive lineman are retuning and all seniors I look for them to have  big game at home against a weak offensive line.

NC State started horrible last year and finished as one of the stronger teams, I believe the trend continues and they easily cover the 5 points!

Final Score Prediction: 31-17

The game total has not been posted yet but look for a update when it is.

Andre Smith Injured

Cicinnati Bengals Minicamp Why does a guy who always signs and gets to camp late get hurt? It seems like every year you have a guy who is a top ten pick who holds out forever then finally gets the big contract and then tries to overwork himself. This always results in him getting hurt!

“Andre Smith  suffered a small fracture in his left foot during a non-contact drill,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. “Our medical staff tells me the injury will not require surgery. It’s too soon to closely predict how long it will be before he can return to practice, but it looks like he’s going to miss a few weeks.”

What are the implications of this you ask? Well he was hoping to anchor the line that protects oft injured Carson Palmer! I would expect since Smith is a big guy that this will linger on for a while. The backup Collins is expected to step in and fill the hole. While he is a viable backup, he is no top ten pick! Carson should be devalued in any late fantasy drafts you are doing. I would expect most teams to only draft him as a backup but if your are using him as your starter then you better watch out!

As far as betting week one vs the Broncos its is still too hard to call. The Broncos QB Kyle Orton looks to be out as well as Chris Simms their backup. Look for more update on this as it looks to be a ugly game in Cincy!

Recapping Favre Performance

Minnesota Vikings v Houston Texans Brett Favre’s ribs appear to be just fine.  He took plenty of hits and even delivered one.Adrian Peterson scored on the game’s first play, Favre played three quarters despite saying he might have an injured rib, and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Houston Texans 17-10 in a preseason game Monday night.

Favre was 13 of 18 for 142 yards. He didn’t move the offense much following Peterson’s touchdown until a 28-yard catch and run by Chester Taylor just before halftime.

So Favre may or may not be injured and apparently he has not worries about his body, which is evident throughout his career. Did he look good tonight? I give him a maybe he played decent. I would call it a Jake Delhome game not great but good enough to win.

On a fantasy football note I would look to this game as a preview of possible many games Favre is the in, AP is that good and will bust runs like this all the time. Virtually eliminating all of Favre’s stats. In most leagues he is considered a bye week guy but I would not trust him for that. I would say you will be lucky to get 180yds and 1TD with him in your bye week!

The Pump Fake Rating of Favre’s Performance!

6/10 Only because I did not think he would complete 10 passes and he fake a rib injury so you get a 6 SIR!

Favre Game number 2!

Kansas City Chiefs v Minnesota Vikings

Brett Favre goes out for the second time as a Viking…what can we expect from the second game?

I would like to see at least two completed passes!

Throw the Ball deep once (we need to see something out of his arm!)

Earn the respect of his teammates, he can’t just complete two passes to do this he needs multiple completions and throw the ball deep to Berrian!

I will say after last weeks performance the bar is set low so doing anything will be better, the pressure is higher since the chatter in the locker room is getting bigger. Favre knows he needs a big game and we will see what he gets done!

Betting the Game

The Minnesota Vikings and the Houston Texans will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Reliant Stadium.

Oddsmakers currently have the Texans listed as 3-point favorites versus the Vikings, while the game’s total is sitting at 39.

Tarvaris Jackson threw two TD passes as the Vikings won their second straight preseason game last time out, defeating the Chiefs 17-13. The Vikings covered the 3-point spread, while the 30 points fell UNDER the posted total of 37.

The Texans were defeated 38-14 by the Saints last time out, as 3-point favorites. The game’s combined score sailed OVER the posted total of 39.

Weather looks good its on a grass field and looks to be 78 degrees with slight clouds no worries here!

 

I say take the Texans -3 at home Favre is old and still not ready to play. If they pull him out early then Jackson will look good again and may decide this game. Based on my belief Favre will stay in the whole first half I am going with the Texans -3.

 

Orton vs Cutler! Preview of Bears vs Broncos

Denver Broncos v San Francisco 49ers We have arrived to the big anticipated game, although it is just a preseason game this game will have implications all over the place.

1: First we have Jay Culters return to Denver after blasting the team McDaniel and anyone else who was listening.

2: Kyle Orton vs the Bears his old team, many Fantasy Football pundits have predicted KO to have a really good year since he has all these weapons. I believe we will see the real Kyle Orton tonight and that Kyle plays Football on his Backside!

3: Bears receivers vs Broncos receivers: The Bears are undervalued at the WR position and all you Fantasy Football fans will want to see this as you have some new sleepers after this game. The Broncos have suspended Brandon Marshall so 2nd year guy Eddie Royal will be leading the charge. I like the Bears receivers to make a statement as Cutler finally gets on the same page with Hester and gets a deep ball to him.

Prediction of Game:

Bear’s Vs Bronco’s 8pm Eastern

Spread is +2 for the Bears and I like taking the points in this game. Cutler is used to playing in Denver and is still looking to make a statement! My final score prediction is Bears 28 – 12.

  1. Bears get two Turnovers off of  Orton Fumbles and take one to the House!
  2. Cutler hits Olson, Forte and Hester for touchdowns!
  3. Lovie Smith is calling Defensive plays this year and the difference will really be apparent tonight. Previously Bob Babich called the plays and was more of a rad and react guy, Lovie goes by the Attack, Attack, Attack system. I predict a big game for the defense!
  4. Take the points tonight and win big +2 is bet!
  5. As far as game total I predicted a 28-12 Score which puts it barely at the over….play this at your own risk!

The weather in Denver is 61 degrees and Cloudy and its looking like some good football weather.  Orton plays horrible with a wet ball and will be very erratic if it starts to rain so watch this closely if starts to rain.
