Gary “The Gut” Goombah : Week 3
“It’s Gary Here,
And I’m Mr. Clean,
They Call Me Hitman,
Don’t Know What They Mean”
– Gary Fencik in the “Super Bowl Shuffle” 1985
Gary “The Gut” has had a rough start to the 2018 season. But don’t worry gamblers. You won’t need to attend GA meetings much longer. Gary WILL turn around his record this week with these five magnificent NCAA Football selections! But first let’s recap Week 2:
Week 2 Selections (All picks are ATS. Spreads are taken from Friday’s Chicago Tribune.)
Kansas St. (+8) over Mississippi St. – FINAL SCORE: Miss St. 31 K State 10 = a bad LOSS
Northern Illinois (+10) over Utah – FINAL SCORE: Utah 17 NIU 6 = a close LOSS
Pitt (+8.5) over Penn St. – FINAL SCORE: Penn St. 51 Pitt 6 = a horrible LOSS
Arizona St. (+6) over Michigan St. – FINAL SCORE: ASU 16 MSU 13 = a great WIN!
Game of the Week: Texas A&M (+12) over Clemson – We’re all pumped for Aggieland on Saturday night. The 12th Man is gonna get crazy! Can QB Kellen Mond lead Jimbo to his first big win in College Station? I don’t know about total victory but a 12 point spread seems doable. PICK: TEXAS A&M – FINAL SCORE: Clemson 28 A&M 26 = a fantastic WIN!!
- Week 1 : 1-4
- Week 2 : 2-3
- TOTALS: 3-7
Week 3 NCAA Selections (All selections are ATS. Point spreads are from Friday’s Chicago Tribune.)
LSU Tigers (+10) over Auburn Tigers – LSU is getting double digits in what should be a hard-fought SEC grudge match. I’ll take the underdog LSU Tigers even though they’re on the road at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Baylor Bears (-6.5) over Duke Blue Devils – Duke’s QB Daniel Jones is hurt. Baylor is at home in Waco, TX. PICK: Baylor
Washington Huskies (-4.5) over Utah Utes – After the loss in the opener to Auburn, Washington got back on track last week. UW is too good for Utah. Expect a victory by more than 6 points for the Huskies at Utah. PICK: Washington
Oklahoma Sooners (-18) over Iowa St. Cyclones – The Sooners are fantastic. The Cyclones have problems. This game is in Ames, IA but that’s about the only thing going for Iowa St. this week. PICK: Oklahoma
Game of the Week : Boise St. Broncos (+2.5) over Oklahoma St. Cowboys – Boise St. is awesome. They have a veteran squad that could possibly go undefeated this year. This is their biggest non-conference game and they’re getting points! PICK: Boise St.
Good Luck to all gamblers this Saturday. I’m sure it will go swell if you take Gary’s advice. Win big and you can have your own lavish mansion, just like Gary. See you next week!
