SEC Against The Spread Week 5.

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 04:01 PM PDT

UConn is on upset alert. BOOM.

SEC Against The Spread Week 5.

Gonna hammer this out quickly with minimal to no comment. I have Vanderbilt over UConn and I’m gonna take it with the win. I have Alabama doing the whole win but not cover thing against Florida.


LSU is getting 16.5 points against Tennessee. Rocky Top gets another gritty performance in a losing effort to cover. Kentucky’s getting 3 at Ole Miss. I’ll take the home favorite.  Georgia gets healthy with A.J. Green back giving 5 to a terrible Colorado. And I’ll take Louisiana Monroe +35 against Auburn.

Everyone else has the week off or is playing an FCS school.

Last Week: 3-4
Overall: 19-10 (Still batting well.)

Florida at Alabama; Predicition Pick 2010

Tebow cried for an in-season conference loss. Again!

Florida at Alabama; Predicition Pick 2010

So here we are, the game of the decade of the year of the week. The two coaches of the previous decade. The two teams of the previous decade. And here we are, actually getting a game like this in the regular season.

Okay, now that my hyperbole hat’s been taken off, the fact of the matter is that this game leans toward Alabama above and beyond the mere fact that they’re playing this in Tuscaloosa. Alabama had to travel to Fayetteville at took Arkansas’s best shot, got up off of the mat, and won.

Florida, on the other hand, finally destroyed a team they were supposed to. But at what cost? Trey Burton ran for five touchdowns and shown himself to be the sort of a running threat of a Tebowish caliber between the tackles with an arm less messed up than the Tebow. But if Steve Addazio kept him in the holster? Nick Saban would not have to game plan for him.

And this would be a whole different story.

As it is? Florida is going to need the best performance from the back four it can get. Because they are likely going to try to make Greg McElroy beat them again. It didn’t work so well last year. And they had Joe Haden playing at being a shutdown corner. I can see McElroy burning them for two scores.

But that being said? John Brantley is going to have time to throw. Mallett had most of his game in the first half, but he had a lot of time to throw. The Gators have receivers of a similar skill and vintage. And in general? Florida has a faster team than Alabama. They’re not going to get blown out here. Especially if they get Deonte Thompson untracked.

Two schools of thought on how this game goes down. One, Addazio doesn’t let Brantley get vertical, McElroy opens things up for Ingram/Richardson, and Alabama bends but doesn’t break and wins by 16. Two, Florida lets it all hang out. Demps breaks another one, Will Hall gets a pick six, and Alabama’s still feeling a hangover from their battle last week and the Gators win by 3.

Personally, I think Florida does a little better than the first school. I think they get down early, but with 1:45 to go, they score a touchdown, miss the two and lose the onside kick. Alabama 27, Florida 22.

United looking good without Rooney

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 06:17 AM PDT

Although Manchester United fans may have initially feared the worst when they heard that Wayne Rooney was likely to be missing for up to three weeks, they have already seen their side prove that they are a unit containing plenty of firepower in front of goal this season, with Berbatov, Owen and Hernandez showing that they are capable of producing the goods in attack.

They clearly miss Rooney as a natural presence and leader on the pitch, bur United have proved in seasons past that they are rarely vulnerable to turning into a one man team, coping with the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, for example, admirably. However, with Owen still injury prone and Hernandez unlikely to be able to take on the role of number one or two striker just yet, it appears that this season is going to be the one in which Berbatov steals the limelight consistently.

If Berbatov fails to produce his best, particularly in the big games, then United are likely to struggle both in Europe and in the Premier League, especially considering that Rio Ferdinand, by far and away their best defender when fit, is showing worrying signs that injury problems could be about to end his career. The latest Champions League odds suggest the side are in for a tough time.
However, if Berbatov reacts well to a greater sense of responsibility and starts to repay the £30 million sum that Sir Alex paid to see the Bulgarian join the Red Devils, it could be a very different story.

Although this hefty fee has not been justified so far, the forward is beginning to show the kind of scintillating form that can fully justify the faith that the Old Trafford manager has placed in him. Those who bet on football games should not back against him being top scorer this season.

If he does repay this faith throughout a long, tiring domestic and European campaign, then United may well see this season turn out to be the one during which they finally overtake bitter rivals Liverpool and win that elusive 19th league title.

Green bounces back

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 05:53 AM PDT

Rob Green showed everyone he is still one of the best English keepers around with a stunning display in West Ham's 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend. The keeper showed his delight at silencing his critics with a gesture aimed at the press box after the game. Fortunately for Green, the FA have said the keeper won't face any disciplinary action over the gesture. It was clear from Green's reaction to the final whistle how much the clean sheet meant to him after a horrendous few months and the best football predictions suggest he could now go on a good run.

It all started going wrong for Green during the summer. After a good season for West Ham, Green started the tournament as England's first choice stopper. Then Green produced one of the all time World Cup blunders and was dropped from the first team. Following England's early exit from South Africa, Green found himself dropped from the England squad entirely, even when Joe Hart was the only fit goalie and Capello was forced to call up two Under-21 keepers to train with the full squad.

As well as his international troubles, Green and West Ham have had a dreadful start to the new season under their new manager, Avram Grant. Green has looked to be suffering from a major confidence issue and has been at fault more than once already this season and the Premier League betting tips suggest they are in for a hard season.

The Spurs victory was The Hammer's first win of the campaign and took them off the bottom of the table. Green will be hoping he can continue his good form and that his team can get clear and stay clear of the relegation places.

The things I learnt – Tottenham 4 – 1 FC Twente

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 06:17 AM PDT

And one to get off my chest 1. Ok so it’s not in the rules. But couldn’t Tottenham be in the Champions League every year? Maybe it is because it is their first foray into the competition, but they are playing games with a confidence and have-a-go attitude not often seen in the Group Stage. [...]

White Feather to the rescue? Former Italy star Fabrizio Ravanelli has vowed to provide financial help to struggling Dundee – despite playing just five times for the club. The ex-Middlesbrough striker was one of the final lofty signings made by the Scottish outfit before they were unsurprisingly forced into administration with debts of £23million. He [...]

Football Lookalikes: Javier Hernandez and the missing post-surgery Jackson sibling

Javier Jackson – the one they kept in the loft Slightly from the leftfield. Just slightly. But Javier Hernandez certainly has the Jackson family surgeon’s nose of choice.

Hard Tackle: Anderson and David Navarro

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 01:34 AM PDT

Dude, where’s your head? Manchester United’s Anderson and Valencia’s David Navarro eagerly await the DVD release of The Human Centipede.

Top five conclusions: Valencia 0-1 Manchester United

Posted: 30 Sep 2010 12:59 AM PDT

1. A draw would not have been so disastrous that Javier Hernandez’s goal can be considered a Get Out Of Jail Free card, but it was certainly a Get Out Of Mediocrity Undeservedly card. 2. One more Hernandez or Fernandes on the pitch and this would have stopped being a Champions League match and become [...]
