Some good games happening in NCAA Football this weekend and it all get's started tonight with an SEC matchup between LSU and MSU (Mississippi State). I had a pretty bad weekend for picks in week 2, but still managed to get 4 of 8 ATS picks & hope for a much better week 3. A few surprises last week and a few games that went exactly like they should have, not to mention some delays and weather issues wreaking havoc on sportsbooks everywhere. All in all a pretty good weekend of college football.
I am posting a list of week 3 games that I will be making selections for and it will be updated between now and Saturday, so check back for updates if you are looking at the same games. Picks for totals will be posted later as well, as I am limited for time because I am covering the NHL Youngstars tourney in BC.

Thursday Sept.8/11-NFL-Week 1
New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers (-4) T:47
Packers have won 5 of the last 7 head to head meetings between these two teams and the Saints have just 1 win at Lambeau ('06) in about 20 years. Should be a close game, but we give the edge to the defending champs. The total is curiously low at 47 (at time of posting) for two teams who are known for putting up points. In fact, the last time the Saints and Packers played to an under against each other was in 1993. We expect the number to climb slightly as we approach kick-off time as the money pours in on the over, so the under just might be worth a look, but its an awful big risk considering the high flying offences of both teams, but it's something to consider.
OUR PICK: Packers (-4)
OUR PICK: Over-47
