Hard to see how I can top last week’s EASY 5-star cover with Cal, but we will see if I can get on another hot streak.
Michigan (-3.5) Northwestern
Arizona (+6) Oregon
Stanford (+24) USC
San Diego St. (+30.5) Utah (3-star)
Utah has its big rival up on board (BYU), with a BCS bid on the line. I suspect they will be flat in Chuck Long’s last major game as a head coach.
Houston (+8.5) Indy
Minnesota (+4) Tampa Bay
Kansas City (+5.5) New Orleans (3-star)
Jacksonville (+3) Tennessee
St. Louis (+6.5) San Francisco (3-star)
The NFL goes to the dogs this week. Does someone really think the Saints are that good at this point? Chief QB Thigpen might be the biggest positive surprise of any player in 2008. Does anyone think the 49ers are more than 6 points better than anyone at this point? 2 interim coaches are pushing their pathetic teams in hope that they get the full-time gig in 2009. Expect a bad game to go down to the end.
