Quick Buck Thursday: Happy Turkey Day!

It's a tradition.

Quick Buck Thursday is coming to you a day early this week as I'm sure you'll want to get your picks in before you have to deal with rushing all over the place for Thanksgiving. Consider this a little appetizer.

Unit Roll - 57 Units

Friday 11/29
Toledo -7.5 @ Akron - 5 Units
The Rockets start off the Friday leftover feast with a nice little W. At 7-3-1 ATS they should dominate this game. Akron has played well against bad teams, but Toledo isn't one of those. Don't mind the hook.

Arkansas @ LSU -25 - 3 Units
LSU hasn't been great ATS, but terrible Arkansas is coming to Death Valley. I really don't see this being pretty. Mettenberger and Co should rack up a lot of points. Arkansas has shown up on QBT before and at 3-8 ATS there is a reason. They are 0-4 on the road. Enjoy that turkey sandwich and a W in this one.

Saturday 11/30
Wyoming @ Utah St -21 - 2 Units
I'm missed the Aggies this season. Since Chuckie went down, I've shied away from them. Which has kind of been a mistake as they turned in a nice season at 7-4 ATS. They're back this week because against teams with losing records they are 6-1-1 ATS. Their defense should keep Wyoming at bay and allow the offense to put up some nice numbers to cover the 21 points. Grab it now before it goes any higher.

North Texas - 5 @ Tulsa - 2 Units
The Mean Green have been good to me this year. And for that I am thankful. Our very own Vegas Cyclown reminded me that former Cyclone coach Dan McCarney is down there running things. Which is probably why they've gone 8-3 ATS on the year. Pair that with a 3-8 ATS Tulsa team and going with the road favorite isn't so scary.

Texas A&M @ Missouri -4.5 - 5 Units
LSU shut down Johnny Football and company last week in Death Valley. And guess what, Mizzou is just as physical upfront on defense. Package that with a damn good offense at home and you have the makings for at least a two score win. Don't let anyone tell you this is going to be a shoot out. Take the Tigers and enjoy your Saturday night.

The Baylor Bears Bonus Over Of The Week
New Mexico @ Boise State - Over 66.5
Either Boise does it themselves or the Lobos pitch in for at least 20. Either way with a good weather day in Boise forecasted, touchdowns should happen.

The Bob Drake "I need another team for my 21-team teaser" Double Bonus
Louisiana Tech @ Texas-San Antonio - Under 52.5
I really hate that I did that to Devin Gardner last week, but the B.D.I.N.A.T.F.M.T.T.T.D.B. had to come through. Two teams that are a combined 17-5 on the under. La Tech is just dreadful offensively and UTSA isn't an offensive juggernaut. I don't typically like unders, but this one should suffice.
