Mark My Words - Here are the pro and college lines that I would put money on, and why:
Boise State -35 over IDAHO - Ahhh...the last scheduled meeting in the "War of the Potatoes" for the indefinite future. Both sides have plenty of incentive in this game. Boise State needs to win in a blowout in hopes of leap-frogging TCU in the BCS standings, while Idaho is fighting for their honor after Boise State president Bob Kustra labeled the Vandal fan base as "nasty" and "inebriated" last summer. I know who I'm pulling for, but Boise State simply has more talent and more on the line.
TCU -26.5 over San Diego State - Like Boise State, TCU has no incentive to let off the gas pedal given that a BCS Championship Game berth could be on the line.
Detroit +3 over BUFFALO - Let's see, after it was announced that 2nd string QB Shaun Hill would be able to start this week instead of 3rd string QB Drew Stanton Detroit went from a 2.5 to a 3 point underdog against winless Buffalo. Since Hill isn't really a drop-off from starting QB Matt Stafford, the Lions are a pretty good bet even though they're on the road this week.
New England -4.5 over Pittsburgh - The Steelers play their third straight game in prime time this Sunday night, this time against the other forerunner for best team in the AFC. Given the experience of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, I'll take the points in this one, especially with Steelers starting LT Max Starks out for the season.
TAMPA BAY -6.5 over Carolina - Not only has Carolina lost starting QB Matt Moore to injury (and will turn again to rookie Jimmy Clausen), but their dynamic tailback duo of DeAngelo Williams and James Stewart will both miss the game as well. Tampa Bay has been able to beat inferior opponents like this all season.
