Week Two: Games Of The Year Lines

Beginning our look into the Games Of The Year lines available currently at 5Dimes.com with Week 2 of the college football season……. Pittsburgh -5 at Boston College USC +4 at Stanford San Diego St +22 at UNC BYU +5.5 at Texas Michigan State +14 at Oregon Michigan +4.5 at Notre Dame Virginia Tech +17.5 at Ohio State Colorado St +10.5 at Boise St Some random thoughts on this board some 52 days before these games are played…….. ** The Boston College/Pitt game is the Friday night primetime game. I can feel myself falling asleep already. I’ll probably just hit up a local high school football game that night instead. ** Stanford is out for revenge against a USC team that beat them 20-17 a year ago with a pair of fourth quarter interceptions and a field goal in the waning seconds. It was the first time any of the Stanford players had been on the field during a defeat to USC. Can the Cardinal get this series back in their favor? They’re in a pretty solid role. In the last six years, Stanford is 22-11-1 ATS when the point spread is between -7 and +7. As the chalk, they’re 16-7-1 ATS, including 7-2 as home

Big Ten Over/Unders: The Newcomers

We’re starting our look into the regular season win totals for the Big Ten with everybody’s favorite newcomers to the tribe: Maryland and Rutgers. We’re not bullish on their chances this year. Win props, per 5Dimes.com MARYLAND TERRAPINS, OVER/UNDER 6.5 WINS. Maryland is a tricky case. On one hand, the more you dig into their roster, the more you’re likely to tab them as a conference sleeper and talk yourself into them making a nice splash in their debut Big Ten season. They get WRs Stefon Diggs and Deon Long back from broken leg injuries, QB CJ Brown is back and should crack the top half of Big Ten signal callers this year. Toss in an experienced offensive line and a pretty good offense could be in the works in College Park. On the other hand, let’s not forget this group went just 3-5 in the ACC a year ago and two of those wins were against teams that didn’t win a single conference game. They went 1-5 a year ago against eventual bowl teams, with four losses by at least double digits. Brown had an inconsistent season, they were a below average running team and finished a woeful 88th in offensive efficiency. On the other side
