Quick Buck Thursday: Stepping in the right direction


Polish pop always puts me in a good mood.

We took a step in the right direction last week with two pick wins and a split in the bonus. Let’s maintain that heading and cash more winners this week.

Bank Roll: 55 units
Season record: 4-11
Bonus record: 4-2

Friday
Boise State -2.5 @ Virginia – 5 units
We look to start our Friday Double Feature off with a “W”. The money is heavy on the under in this game meaning defense will have heavy influence in the outcome.

I’ll take the better of the two defenses for the win, Alex.

Stanford -16 @ Oregon State – 5 units
I watched Michigan’s “Stanford-lite” offense demolish the Beavers two weeks ago and after last week’s drubbing of USC it looks like Stanford is putting its early season woes behind it.

If Stanford is what it should be, a better version of Michigan, this is an easy cover.

Saturday
Navy -6.5 @ UConn – 5 units
Yes this is the third QBT appearance for UConn, and damn it, the third time is a charm.

Navy’s option is too weird to prep for sandwiched between two road games.

UMASS @ Notre Dame -29 – 5 Units
Usually I hate betting on Notre Dame, but UMASS isn’t very good and Brian Kelly is douchey enough to run up the score on the poor bastards. Add to that UMASS is allowing 36 ppg on average and I honestly don’t believe they’ll even score on ND.

Texas State @ Houston -16.5 – 5 units
Tom Hermann is on a mission to add Houston to the ranks of great Texas football schools. Any chance he has to put another Texas school in its place, he’s going to do it.

The Baylor Bears Bonus Over of the Week
Cincinnati @ Memphis – Over 66.5
The Bearcats may not be as explosive as Bowling Green, but they’re at least in the same neighborhood offensively. I’m betting on Memphis in back to back weeks to flex its offensive muscle.

The Bob Drake “I need another team for my 21-team teaser” Double Bonus
Rice @ Baylor – Over 74.5
Baylor is averaging 61 ppg. Rice, 40.7 ppg.
Baylor is allowing 26 ppg. Rice, 27.3 ppg.
I may not be a licensed Mathematician, but 74.5 points shouldn’t be an issue.  

The Best Bet of the Week Triple Bonus
Ohio +325 @ Minnesota
If you read my Monday recap posts, you should be aware I point out the best bet of the week. With that in mind I’ve decided to add a bonus pick here and see if we can’t cash in on one of these sweet victories.

Minnesota is a bit of an offensive mess right now. Ohio has the horses to hang with the Gophers on defense and just might have enough on offense to nab a win in Minneapolis.
