Las Vegas - Gonna head to potato country and take Boise State -3.5 points over Air Force. Boise opened -6 and has been bet all the way down to 3.5. This is ALL wise guy money looking for a middle. If you don't wanna play both sides, and are just looking for the winner, stay with me. Sure the Broncos are coming off a big win last week over BYU, but they ain't about to ease off the gas. They have handled the Falcons with EASE the past four years. How easy? Check it.

Las Vegas - First lemme tell you about the Carrier Dome in Syracuse. It's OLD, it's BORING and it's UGLY! But MAN is it LOUD! If you just looked at the Orange's overall record, 3-3, they would appear to be only average. However, where it REALLY matters, in the bank account, the 'Cuse is on FIRE. They have covered four in a row and five of the last six. On the other side of the field, Clemson is working on a NEGATIVE perfecto. The Tigers are 0-5 against the spread this season.

Which makes the handicap tough as well. Normally, we would just phone in a bet on Tampa without even thinking, but with the thumb, this is anything but normal.

Las Vegas - If you're all about underdogs in the NFL, you were probably flush after the first four weeks with the dogs sitting at 38-24. If you played all the dogs this past week, you gave back some of your cash, but still were in the black. It was a 7-9 cover mark, but the dogs are still barking with a 45-33 record after five weeks.

Great little piece of minutiae from my old Philly Daily News guy Ed Barkowitz.

Las Vegas - Anyone know where Appalachian State is? No Google plz. Okay, it's in Boone, North Carolina, which is in the Western part of the state, a few miles from the Tennessee border, and smack in the middle of the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. What's also gorgeous is the Mountaineers 4-1 record as they fly down to Lafayette, Louisiana to take on the Ragin' Cajuns. Shawn Clark took over at App State after Eli Drinkwitz took the Missouri job, and Clark is 14-4 since putting on the headset.
