Las Vegas - If I got up a little earlier, you woulda read this. Sorry!

Jumping across the pond, we're gonna take Everton at home to beat Crystal Palace. Everton's comeback from 2-0 down to beat Watford 3-2 last week was YUGE. The Toffees, yes, that's the actual nickname, have lost just once in the last 10 league games since Marco Silva was fired. New X & O guy, Carlo Ancelotti, is off to an impressive start, and should find another W. Why? Well, Palace has scored only 22 goals, which is the WORST, and they also have the fewest attempts on target in the Premier League this season. Gimme some Toffee!

Counted 109 games on the main college BB board, then another 39 games on the extra board. Obviously, no human can handicap 148 games, so we'll just stick to the basics. First up is Auburn at home -4 points against LSU. The Tigers, from Alabama, have been superb this season, posting a 20-2 overall record. They roll in on a 5-0 run, and own a GORGEOUS 12-0 record at home. The other Tigers, from Louisiana, are just average on the road straight up, with a 5-4 record. But against the spread, it's ugly, with only two covers in the last six. Also like Indiana -2 points over Purdue. Then we'll try a two team 6-point teaser, and take Syracuse down from -8 to -2 points against Wake Forest. Close with Penn State and drop the Nittany Lions from -6 points to pick'em against Minnesota.
