Thanks, KingR! And same to you on the new forum venture. Enjoying it already.

 

Balco - I should have pounced a few weeks ago when it was still at 9 but didn't get to sit down and really go over the games until this week so missed out. I feel confident with anything 13 and below in this spot regardless. Ole Miss doesn't get enough attention since they play in the SEC West and have to deal with being overshadowed by Auburn, Alabama, LSU and last season Johnny football but they are an upstart program and the 8-5 record last season doesn't do them justice. They should have beaten both A&M and LSU last year, boneheaded mistakes cost them both games. The Egg Bowl loss to Miss St was due to the fumble going into the end zone. They lost the marque RB from last season and the WR Moncrief but are still solid with Treadwell and a talented D line to go with the fact that Bo Wallace is on pace to break records held by Manning and is a mobile threat if he can just stay healthy throughout the season, so being fresh week 1 here I like them.

LSU -5 vs WIsconsin (-110) $110/100

 

Looking for this one to be a one possession game but LSU's depth and talent gets them over the hump here in week 1. A ton of young players on both teams but have to give the edge to the Tigers here. Even with two DBs out of the game for LSU, going against a new QB and letting the rest of that defense key in on Gordon will be fun to watch. WIsky will most likely get Gordon the ball on passes more this season and work Clement into the plays in the backfield at the same time. might work in the Big Ten but not so much against a fast D from Baton Rouge. Les Miles' teams make a living at stopping those outside plays in space and Gordon is mainly a downhill between the tackles runner so will play right into the Tigers' scheme here - two new DT's but talented ones and on the flip side, LSU's O Line will be one of the best this season to go along with Jennings and the stable of RB's.
