Episode six of the Hunter Sports Picks Betting Breakdown is here. In this episode, we’re talking college football week five and week four NFL action.
College Football Rapid Recap (1:14)
What on earth happened in Eugene last Saturday night? The Utah Utes dismantled Oregon 62-20 in shocking fashion. Kyle Whittingham is an underrated coach, and the Utes are very physical in the trenches. That has been a blueprint to beat the Ducks in the past, and it worked better than ever in this one. I wonder what this means about Mark Helfrich. He can no longer live off the Chip Kelly era. Can Oregon bounce back?
We touched on BYU’s brutal spot at Michigan in last week’s show, and they didn’t even show up in Ann Arbor on Saturday. A word of caution here on reading too much into one game. Note though that this Michigan defense looks great.
TCU and Texas Tech was a fascinating game. The podcast free pick from last week cashed in big with the over in that game. Texas Tech got their heart broken thanks to an unlucky bounce in the end zone. Here I note something important about a brutal spot for this coming week.
Tennessee can’t finish games. Butch Jones will be getting a lot of heat soon if the Volunteers can’t turn things around. Remember, there are very high expectations for this Tennessee team.
College Football Betting Breakdown (5:47)
There’s a huge injury for Boston College that you won’t want to miss out on. What about a ridiculous statistic on the Boston College defense? Tune in to find out about both of these important points.
I talk about the head scratcher line of the week and advise bettors to stay away from this game altogether.
Eastern Michigan can’t stop the run and they take on Leonard Fournette and the LSU Tigers this week. Heads up for some huge rushing numbers from LSU.
I give you an under the radar team to look to fade the rest of the year. Who are they and why should you look to fade? Tune in and find out.
What will it take for the Houston Cougars to get some respect? Tom Herman’s doing a great job here. I think this team is for real.
College Football Game Breakdown (8:40)
An in-depth discussion of Mississippi State at Texas A&M. What do I make of this line and where is the edge for bettors? This is a night game at Kyle Field, and the atmosphere will be electric. I have a strong lean on this game.
NFL Rapid Recap (11:51)
How about those Oakland Raiders? Should you be buying in or not? Some thoughts on the Raiders moving forward.
Minnesota has impressively bounced back from their awful week one performance. The Vikings have a good coach in Mike Zimmer, and this team shouldn’t be overlooked.
The 49ers offense is a mess, but the Cardinals deserve more respect than they are getting. The oddsmakers seem to be doubting Arizona.
Some seem ready to hop right back on the Eagles bandwagon after one win. Be careful. This team still has a lot to prove to me.
Miami was a total disaster last weekend. The Dolphins defense has no business getting torched by Tyrod Taylor and the Bills the way they did. Joe Philbin might be the first coach gone if things don’t turn soon.
NFL Betting Bulletpoints (14:09)
Buffalo looked great last weekend, but they have a couple key injuries on offense you should take note of. Can Taylor continue to play this well at QB?
Ben Roethlisberger’s injury is clearly a huge deal for a Steelers offense that was humming along. I note another key injury on defense that you’ll want to keep an eye on for this week’s game.
The over was 10-6 last weekend in the NFL. Flags are flying at a record pace. It’s no fun for the average fan, but as a bettor it’s something you need to adjust to.
NFL Game Breakdown (15:50)
St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals- St. Louis’ offense has been bad so far this year. Tune in to hear the statistic about exactly how bad it has been. Arizona has played a bad schedule, but I do believe this team is the real deal. Listen in to find out what I believe the key matchup is to handicap in this game.
