CFB Convo: B.E. joins Teddy Covers on his Wager Talk show
Published on Saturday, 5/29/21, at 1:58 p.m. Eastern.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all, especially the brave men and women that have served our great country!
I joined Teddy Sevransky (AKA: Teddy Covers) on his Wager Talk show this morning. You can check out that conversation here.
We hit on a bunch of college football handicapping topics before getting to the nitty-gritty, which included thoughts on Mississippi State, LSU at UCLA in Week 1 and a bunch of season win totals.
To some other stuff…
—My interview with Qualk & Kelly on Thursday (scroll down to 5/27/21 Hour 2) includes an explanation for why I like LSU to cover at UCLA in Week 1, my opinion on Boston College’s season win total and my pick for tonight’s Game 3 between the Jazz and Grizzlies at Memphis.
–As always, you can check out all my by-lines at MajorWager.com right here (and if you look at the top middle of this page, you can click the MajorWager link), including this breakdown of this season’s college football Games of the Year.
–After my Hawks dealt out an open-hand pimpslap to the Knicks last night to take a 2-1 series lead, most books have installed Atlanta as a 4.5-point home favorite for Sunday’s Game 4 at 1:05 p.m. Eastern. Nate McMillan’s club won by double digits despite the fact that the Knicks shot 30 free throws and Atlanta was sent to the charity strip merely eight times. Hell, Nerlens Noel shot more free throws (12) than the Hawks, who will cover again tomorrow night. Trae Young is picking these boys apart and even with the officials doing their best to keep the Knicks alive in this series (how about those call to take John Collins completely out of Game 2?!), they’re getting punted in five games (six tops!).
–Atlanta has won 12 home games in a row, going 10-2 against the spread. The Hawks are 20-2 straight up and 18-4 ATS in their last 22 home games at State Farm Arena.
–The ‘over’ has hit in four straight Denver-Portland games. The total is 227 for today’s 4:05 p.m. Eastern tip of Game 4.
–Washington’s Russell Westbrook remains ‘questionable’ (ankle) for tonight’s Game 3 at home vs. Philadelphia. The 76ers are looking to take a commanding 3-0 series lead as 6.5-point road favorites.
–It’s so great to see ‘The All-American’ back on his feet and walking on his own. Chris Weidman, the former UFC middleweight champ, sustained a gruesome leg break five weeks ago at UFC 261 in his rematch against Uriah Hall.
