FERRALL-A-VENT Tuesday September 16, 2014
We will follow the developments today in the Adrian Peterson story. Last night we told you about the second accusations of another 4-year-old child that’s his that he allegedly beat as well, or whatever you want to call it, whoopings, beatings. Is it child abuse or is it not? We got great reaction last night On the Bench on CBS Sports Radio. We’re live again tonight at 10PM East/7PM Pacific.
The other thing I wanted to talk about is some of the action in Vegas that went down over the weekend. The Vegas books hauled it in again with that Browns cover, the South Carolina cover against Georgia and the Boston College cover against Southern Cal. Vegas books went crazy. They lost big money on the Texans blowing out the Raiders and then they got crushed on that Patriots spread against the Vikings after Adrian Peterson didn’t play. The number went from like minus 3½ all the way to 6 and everybody freaked out, but the Pats blew ‘em out 30-7.
There’s some big games this week obviously in college football, Indiana at Missouri, Iowa at Pitt, Idaho at Ohio. In terms of betters, Clemson/Florida State, the Virginia/BYU game, Miami of Ohio at Cincinnati and Northern Illinois and Arkansas. In terms of line movements, that Missouri game went from 14 to 16½, the Pitt game went from 2½ to 4½ lane. Ohio went from minus 10 to minus 13. Florida State went from minus 18 to minus 19½. BYU went from minus 14½ to minus 16½. Cincinnati went from minus 27 to minus 29 and Arkansas from minus 10 to minus 13½. Keep an eye on that.
We’ll talk about the Auburn/Kansas State game Thursday night. That number’s gone as high as Auburn minus 9½. Against Bill Snyder though, he does well and is 150-103 against the spread, over 59 percent in his career. The Cats have covered in 10 of their last 14 games as a home dog and Auburn is the favorite there.
We’ll talk about risers in Super Bowl odds. Bengals, Panthers, Bears, Cowboys, Browns and Chargers are all headed up. Seahawks, Niners, Saints, Vikings and Steelers are headed down. We’ll see you tonight On the Bench.
