@ early games to unload on

Game 1 = Miami OH +17 @Ohio State - With Texas lingering on the next w/e look for OSU to be lookin ahead I could see this line at +10-+12 but +17 is a gift from above...we love MAC Doggies

Game 2 = UCLA -7 @SD ST, UCLA returns alot of quality starters and will be lookin to run up the score on there old pals from right down the road who they have owned in the past, UCLA should win by 15-17

    Atta boy Hilly...hit my alma mater HARD! Miami Redhawks will again compete for MAC crown and Ohio St will be without QB Troy Smith for this game. I know Zwick is also good and won the bowl game last yr but this game will stay Under 2 TDs. This is also a great game to tease up to 23 or so but I don't think you'll need it!!!

    Wouldn't call anything I post a game to unload on, but didn't know where else to post this and wanted to get it out there in case anyone still had a total of 49.5 in the Iowa/Ball State game. Even up until last night, Pinnacle had it at 49.5. I looked today from work and it was 52 at 11:30, then 54 at 1:30? Not sure if I'll play it now (my book doesn't have Totals yet), but I thought it looked good in case anyone can still get it at 49.5, here are some notes I had already written up on it:

    OVER 49.5 Iowa/Ball State (was gonna buy a half point to 49)

    * Over the last 5 years, when Iowa -25 or more at home, average score has been 50-7.

    * Fewest total points scored in these 5 games was 46, with Iowa themselves scoring 39, 56, 41, 62, 51.

    * Iowa is 5-0 ATS in these games, and has also covered its last 4 home openers. So if oddsmakers are right with Iowa (-39), then if Ball State scores one TD, Iowa should have at least 46 (based on the fact Iowa has been covering the larger spreads/home openers). Also, in all games (H/A) over the past 6 seasons, Iowa has only posted one shut-out.

    * In home games favored by 2 TDs or more over the last 5 years, Iowa has scored at least 41 points in 7 of the 9 (over 49 in 4 of the games).

    * Over the last 3 years (8 games), when Ball State has been a road dog of 20+, the average score has been 45-16 (with one shut-out). Overall, Ball State has been shut-out 3 times over the past 5 seasons.

    Offensive skill players are all back for Iowa. I was/am just hoping for 7 points out of the Cardinals.

    Good Luck.
