This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …
At some point, TCU is going to do something spiffy just because Gary Patterson is the head coach and the team should be a whole lot better than this. Before seeing the lines this week, I had it in my head that the public was going to overlove West Virginia, but the 11.5 is more than reasonable at home against a team playing out the string.

If you can read this Kansas-Kansas State thing, good … luck. Full disclosure – I don’t have it. I haven’t been able to read whether or not the Jayhawks are going to come in jacked up for the first stop in the David Beaty Farewell Tour, or if Kansas State is going to run for 3 gajillion yards against a bad team. Because I have to … Kansas. Kansas State isn’t good enough to be giving away 10.5 to a chalupa.

If this is wrong, I don’t want to be right. The Oklahoma State-Oklahoma Bedlam rivalry line rocketed it up from OU -17.5 to 21, and the total has gone insane, starting at 76, dipping to 70, and shooting up to 79.5.
Oklahoma State might be flaky, and it might get ripped to shreds, but if you’ve noticed this Sooner team, it’s hanging 50+ points on the board, and yet it’s still working really, really hard.
The Sooners will win this, but the Cowboys are just weird enough to push to make this a fight. And you’re getting 21. This falls under too-good-a-chance-not-to-take category.

Ehhhhhhhhhh, on Baylor at Iowa State. This is one of the lines that appears to be right on it at 14.5. The problem is that the Cyclones can own this game, be great, and win by just two touchdowns. They’re the better team, and they’re at home, but Baylor has been just good enough to … ehhhhhhhhhh. Stay away, but if you must, the Bears catching that half a point might do it.

There has to be a trick here. There has to be a catch. The world does know that Texas Tech QB Jett Duffey is just okay, right? The world does know that he’s not just coming off the bench, but Texas has had time to prepare, right?
As soon as it was announced that Alan Bowman was definitely out, I just assumed the line would be around Texas -7ish or so, even on the road. Texas is only at -1.5.
