The blog is 3-3 after two weeks, meanwhile King Nom is motivated and ready to get over the hump with his first win. He’s due and we all know he would never let the blog down. Let’s get to this week’s action.
Brew Hand Bet One: Kansas vs Houston (Over 58)
Kansas football is good. Yes, that is not a typo, Kansas is no longer just a basketball school while Lance Leipold is running the show. Coach Leipold took his offensive wizardry from Buffalo and is now having success in the Big 12. Additionally, Kansas and Houston are a combined 4-0 to the over in their games this season. I may also play Kansas +8.5 as well as their team total over 24.5. Rock Chalk!
Brew Hand Bet Two: Michigan State vs Washington (Washington -3.5)
Michigan State has to travel out west to a hostile environment in Husky Stadium. The Spartans may also be without number one receiver Jaylon Reed and if he does play doesn’t appear to be at 100 percent. First year Washington head coach Kalen DeBoer takes his high powered offense from Fresno State and with it brings in Indiana QB transfer Michael Penix. DeBoer’s offense and Penix are a better match than peanut butter and jelly on Bumble. Michigan State’s defense has yet to show that they have improved from their putrid showing last season. Seeing a ranked team on the road as a dog to a team ready to have a breakout game is enough for me to back the PAC.
King Nom’s #108ing Bet of the Week: Oklahoma vs Nebraska (OU -11)
Oklahoma travels to Nebraska this week to take on a Cornhusker team coming off a loss to Georgia Southern. The loss cost Nebraska coach Scott Frost his job. They’ll be trying to rally behind interim coach Mickey Joseph in front of a home crowd. Spoiler alert! It won’t be enough. The Sooners will be rolling in looking to maintain a perfect record in which they have won both games by at least 30 points. Oklahoma sports a pass rush with 9 sacks so far and I’m confident they’ll get after the QB in this game as well. I expect them to come in strong and hand the Huskers another loss.
