What I’ve learned after three weeks is gambling is for degenerates, reprobates, fools and the misguided—so let’s get right to this week’s games!

First, and this may sound naïve, but now I know what Brent Musburger has been screaming about all these years at the end of games.

“Don’t you have to kick the field goal here?!!!”

It’s the line, man, the Vegas line. And I get more suspicious by the week watching a game turn on an official’s whistle, or a coach’s decision.

Rankman hasn’t started so hot this year and a lot of it is because of games like Oregon and Nebraska.

Nebraska was favored by three and won by three, but only because Oregon failed on four consecutive, two-point conversion tries.

What kind of coach doesn’t take free points? Rankman took Oregon and the game ended up a push because one of the teams took three points off the board.

Anyway, on to this week’s games: Stanford at UCLA, Mississippi State vs. Massachusetts, West Virginia vs. Brigham Young and TWO bonus picks. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
