Up early with Jr watching Sesame Street. Anyone else watch this shit? There is no question that Bert and Ernie are butt buddies. It’s really kind of disturbing. Personally, I think Sesame Street sucks and I have no idea how it was so successful for so many years. The modern-day cartoons like Sid the Science Kid and Superwhy are so much better and so much more entertaining than these fucking dorks on the street. Sorry, I digress.
3-0 yesterday dudes hitting the 2nd straight 30 unit play on an easy cover with Utah and hitting on the money line as well.
Really a disappointing day for gambling with really only 1 bowl game to bet on. This brings us to SMU vs Nevada. SMU is the feel good story here. Playing in their first bowl game in like 25 years. Nevada impresses me, they average over 330 yards on the ground and boast 3 1000 yard rushers, including their QB. Nevada got off to a rough start, getting smoked 35-0 at ND and losing to Col State who they should have beaten. However, in the past month they played Boise St very tough and blasted Fresno St 52-14. This is a veteran team, with an experienced QB.
SMU has a pretty balanced attack but they actually start a True Freshman at QB. Their wins aren’t that impressive. They barely beat Tulane and Rice. Two teams they should have handled easily. They do have a nice win over East Carolina and played Navy tough. I think they keep it close in the first half but Nevada is just too much for these guys. I can’t put money on a true freshman QB against such an experience and good team in Nevada.
Play: Nevada -12.5 over SMU
Good luck and Merry fucking Christmas.
