Now that only the elite of the elite are here I have some valuable information, just for you.  This time of year is about pageantry, bands, tailgating, and the great game of football, played by student/athletes from coast to coast.  That’s what I tell my neighbors.  You and I know something else, though.  It’s also the time of year for hauling in a pile of Presidents with some cogent beating of the point spread.

Everyone knows the obvious stuff.  Oregon went 2-0-1 against the spread (ATS) and 3-0 straight up (SU) last year when playing at home, with the total >= 59, after losing the previous game ATS.  Child’s play.  Every middle-schooler with Wi-Fi and an account with Bovada knows that.

One more sobering statistic before you place your football bet on the Ducks.  Oregon is only 3-5 against the spread when a man named Pinto is on campus.

There you have it, sportsmen and sporting women.  The first college game of the year is this Thursday.  South Carolina is a 7 point favorite at Vanderbilt.

I’ll take the Cocks.

…That was a tough sentence to type.
