JUST THE BEGINNING

Just sticking too the nooners here.

Pitt -11(.8)
Georgia Tech +7.5(.8)
West Virginia +6(.8)

Georgia Tech has no chance of winning.

On an unrelated note, Charl Schwartzel is killing me this week. After starting the first 14 holes 6 under par, he has played the rest of the first three rounds in three over. That includes 2 eagles, 7 birdies and 4 bogies. Not bad, right? Well it is if you include the 2 double bogies and 2 triple bogies.

Unbelievable.

SUPER BOWL XLIII

I could spend a lot of time talking about this game, but most of that would be a waste of time.

The consensus numbers are showing that Arizona could be slightly public. An NFL underdog getting over 60% on Wagerline is very rare. Other consensus sites have Pittsburgh getting between 38 and 45% of the action. For a favorite they surprisingly low numbers.

Take into account that the Steelers have been a vastly superior team to the Cardinals for the duration of the season and I am giving them a serious look. However, I have heard enough the Steelers have been the best team in football all season long arguments to give me second thoughts on this.

Something about going against an overall bad team like the Cardinals on a hot streak seems too easy for this to be a play. Is it strange that I had no problem backing the Raiders for about 10 straight weeks, yet I am extremely hesitant to back the Steelers here?

I’m still undecided at the moment, and there is no chance this will be for anything more than a standard play.

On the biggest gambling day of the year, this one is probably a pass.

WHY IS IT SO FOGGY IN THE DESERT?

I have no idea.

For the second straight day, the Dubai Desert Classic is delayed due to early morning fog. That’s probably for the better considering I really should not be staying up following the European tour live.

P.S. A decent showing in the second half from Idaho would be nice.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL PICKS

Had to get these in early, so only taking the most “obvious” games. There is a chance I may get some in later if I have time.

Iowa +6(.8)
CMU +4(.8)
Idaho -4(1.6)
Virginia Tech -1 -105(.8)

I think small is the way to go given that I rushed through these pretty quick. I also don’t think there are a whole lot of great games out there tonight, but I love the Vandals.
