GAMBLING LINES 2019: WEEK 7

I tried a new strategy last week: Put the majority of my eggs in one basket, namely, Auburn (-3). Here's the replay of how my betting weekend went:

Yep, any gains I had on the VT ML, VT over, UNCHeat (-10), and Georgia (-25) all eclipsed by Auburn's monumental bed shitting against the gators. Sigh...Don't bet kids.

Anyway, on to this week's lines.

  • Miami (-1): Not touching this one. On the one hand, I want Miami to win solely so that we can hand LOLUVa their second ACC loss and knock them out of the title game. On the other hand, Miami is not good and LOLUVa looks like they just might be. On the other hand, LOLUVa has been nowhere near bulletproof this year and Miami has the raw talent to put together a game. On the other hand...No, there is no other hand. I cannot, in good conscience, put money on either of these teams. #TeamMeteor
  • Mississippi State (-6.5): Until proven otherwise, I'm taking whoever is playing Tennessee. Full stop.
  • Duke (-17): Until proven otherwise, I'm taking whoever is playing Georgia Tech. Full stop.
  • Bama (-17): No Bama opponent will be within 3 TDs this year except LSU (because LSU) and Auburn (because Iron Bowl). Yes, aTm technically only lost by 14 to Clemson, BUT, that was with a last minute TD and Clemson hasn't been putting away teams like Bama has this season (See: 1 pt win over UNCheat).
  • The State of Washington vs. The State of Arizona: Not a line, just cracked me up that WSU is playing at ASU and UW is playing at UA the same day. You know, because I'm a simpleton.

As always, please do not take my ramblings as legitimate gambling advice. You will lose your shirt and anything else you're foolish enough to bet based on my idiocy.
Lines may change over the course of the week. I also may have made errors copying them. Always triple check when money is at stake

5 game parlay
-App State
-Miami
-Duke
-Texas
-WVU

4/5. Damn couch burners!

ECU dropped a pirate deuce on my parade before Saturday even started. Luckily I still got a 3way parlay to hit, making it a weekend on the plus side.

Unfortunately #21 has a bye this week. Not sure if it translates to #20 or #22 in this situation...but #20 is loluva. I just can't do it.... #22 is Baylor, and not sure I like Texas Tech at -9.5 enough for that much. Might lay low until next week on the #21 thing.

Nebraska has been horrific ATS this year. Them at -7.5 might make me lean to Minn.
Marshall -14 at ODU? Man, gimme ODU on that one.
Ole Miss +12 at Missou....Give me the land sharks.

And Baylor doesn't cover. The #21 goes down each week streak continues!

Didn't actually put money on the others, but Marshall was right on the number.

You got your home teams and away teams backwards. Or at least the column headers are backwards.

Nebraska +7.5 ($10)
Kentucky -6.5 ($15)
Temple +5 ($25)
Duke -17 ($30)
Miss St -6.5 ($20)

Headers. Thanks. Fixed.

Mixed week, won the two I bet biggest on but lose 3 of 5 games. Still, fictional $100 became $110.

On the one hand, I want Miami to win solely so that we can hand LOLUVa their second ACC loss and knock them out of the title game.

Hate to break it to ya, but UVA is 2-0 in the ACC right now. That ND loss was an OOC game.

Yes. I know. That's why it says we (AKA, the hokies) would be in a position to hand LOLUVa (Virginia) their second ACC loss when we play them if Miami beats them Friday. Reading comprehension will get after ya.

Your boy is now 1-5 on the year. Let it be known that I've been picking games that the OP hasn't picked and aren't on the six pick, so I don't always take the most favorable looking games.

Michigan is favored by 21 on the road in Campaign, but Michigan couldn't even beat MTSU by 21 at home earlier this year. Illinois lost by 4 to Nebraska at home earlier this year. Give me the Illini

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Nebraska is bad. Wouldn't bet anything but monopoly money on them.

That Miami line is silly but after falling flat on my face in a silly 3 team parlay last week I am now taking a break.

Okay what am I missing here....Miami is now sitting at -2.5?

Shark money likes talent. I pray it's right.

I don't think the sharps have started betting in earnest yet.

Yeah I might have jumped the gun. This work week is moving slowww

Hokie Club member since 2017

this is exactly what I thought about the Auburn line last week:

"Surely this line is wrong, this is easy money."

Narrator: "It was not easy money."

Yeah I got baited into that as well...now I'm extremely hesitant.

Miami announced they are starting Perry over Williams? Maybe Vegas thinks Perry is better

Maybe all of hokie nation thinks Perry is better...

I literally can't get signed up for any sports gambling service to save my life because they can't recognize my SSN. The same thing happened when I tried to work for DoorDash this summer. It took two months for that to get resolved. Any advice?

Sure I can help what's your SSN

...I've never been asked my SSN for online gambling. Is that really a thing? Sounds sketchy.

FanDuel and DraftKings both asked me for my SSN as some sort of confirmation. My friends who referred me use the same thing but didn't have to give their SSN. Maybe it has something to do with my address. Not sure.

You mean...

Hahahaha state isn't the issue. I think the issue is my permanent address has changed since moving to Huntington. I tried my Huntington address on Sportsbooks and my Lewisburg address on FanDuel, and neither worked. I'm beginning to think I'm an undocumented citizen.

Texas (+10.5)

Ole Miss (+12)
Arkansas (+6.5)
