    Arkansas St. is -4, for what it's worth.

    1-0-1

    Boise St. game was so easy. You could see that one coming from a mile away.

    That Arkansas St. line was strange. Was -4 until 6:45 p.m. and then jumped all the way to -5.5. Wow -- that is the definition of late money. Glad I "locked in" at -4.

    Weird line movement....

    Your "guy" create his own spreads? I can't find where that game ever got to -6 anywhere. If that's the case, I'd get a different guy or go on-line. Create-a-spread guys would make me nervous.

    I had it at minus 6 as well, sometimes that works in your favor, sometimes it don't. Usually have a couple/ three options, but it being a night of only a couple of lesser games, some people hard to reach.

    I was 1-1 last night. I lost the Ark. St. -5 game but won the 2-team parlay with Ark. St and Boise State to win SU. Pretty much, it means I broke even. Thats the story of my life the last 3 weeks. I never win, but I never lose - all I am getting is alot of fun...

    Tonight, I am going with WVU to cover.

    Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio just picked WVU as well. South Florida's win over Auburn doesn't look so good now, but their crowd will be fired up, should be fun to watch.

    I think the good, safe bet if you want a 90% chance to win is WVU straight up - but at -275, you will have to bet alot to win money.

    I am going to go with WVU -7 1/2. I would liketo see the number drop to -7, but its probably going to go the other way...

    It moved to 6 on a couple of sites. Donbest.com and some other sites show you more than 1 line. I promise that it moved to 6 at about 6:30 on at least one site.

    Also if somebody put a bunch on one side a small town bookie will raise to try to get action on other side.

    I'm not unaware that it happens, or why it happens, just that that would preclude me from using them.

    Wouldn't that better if you liked the other side?

    Would it occasionally work in my favor? Sure. However, I wouldn't feel good in general with a guy who makes a living off my losses manually adjusting the line to fit his wants.
