Navy vs. Houston (NCAAF)
12:00 PM EST
Play Title: 9 STAR Headliner Moneyliner
Play Selected: Money Line: -175
I really love this Navy team this season & what they’ve accomplished thus far in the 2015-16 campaign. But most of all, they’re consistent by ruling the clock and the game in the trenches. Their only slip up still stands as a 41-24 loss to Notre Dame. They managed to rush for 318 yards on the ground but lost due to losing the turnover war 3-1 (also their only time this season). That game stands in between them & an undefeated season. Houston with new HC Tom Herman has a nice team but has over-achieved against a bunch of under-achievers this season. Memphis had this team beat in Houston and let one slip away in the 4th quarter. I don’t believe the Naval Academy let’s that happen today. This team doesn’t beat themselves as witnessed by holding a GIANT turnover edge over their opponents this season @ 21-6! They’ve won by over 3 TD’s their last 2 travelers against Memphis & Tulsa. I feel the Navy blueprints have been laid for them by watching the Cougars 4 TO’s in last week’s loss to UConn. Play the Navy fight song now since they’ll be a legitimate Top 15 & possible Top 10 team before this season is over. They’ll be no looking ahead to Army as we take a trip to ole’ John O’Quinn Field @ Robertson Stadium to play the Navy Midshipmen as my 9 Star Headliner Moneyliner!
Missouri vs. Arkansas (NCAAF)
2:30 PM EST
Play Title: 9 Star Friday Chalk Talker
Play Selected: Point Spread: -14.0/-103
This Arkansas squad can score & has gotten stronger offensively as the season progressed. They do run into one of the better teams defensively with Missouri, but that defense will certainly get tired here after too many three-and-outs by a struggling “O”. I believe my rookie-on-the-road QB system kicks in here with Drew Lock (3/6 TD/INT ratio) finding it difficult to call signals or consistently find a rhythm among the Fayetteville faithful & partisan crowd. They’ll be much different circumstances this time around from last year’s 21-14 Mizzou’ win that vaulted them into the SEC title game. The Razorbacks’ QB Brandon Allen is RED HOT right now putting up 103 points & throwing for 848 yards against the state on Mississippi (Ole’ Miss & Mississippi State) the past 3 games. This team is the best 6-5 squad in CFB & have just 2 TO’s in their last 4 games & only 9 on the season.. In contrast, the Tigers have turned it over 6 times their last 3 games alone & 16 times on the year. Are you ready? I’m certainly ready to watch the Arkansas Razorbacks execute revenge in getting the cover @ Razorback Stadium (but buy to -13 1/2) as my 9 Star Friday Chalk Talker!
Baylor vs. TCU (NCAAF)
7:30 PM EST
Play Title: 8 Star Walking Wounded Survivor
Play Selected: Point Spread: 0.0/-110
While both teams have had their share of key injuries, I believe T.C.U. has the motivation, revenge & enough talent left to put enough points on the board to grab the “W” here. The Horned Frogs would be undefeated if it didn’t face the state of Oklahoma (0-2, losses to Oklahoma & Oklahoma State). However, it’s been a different tune against their fellow Texas universities. They come into this tussle with an unblemished 4-0 SU record intrastate. In a game which will prove to be a (I’ll borrow the old adage) “wild & wooly” one, I feel HC Gary Patterson’s Purple People have the lasting power that eventually slows down the Bears’ offense witha 3rd-string QB on their off surface. They won’t be running 109 plays this year. I’m set to go to Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth to play the T.C.U. Horned Frogs as my Friday Night Delight & 8 Star Walking Wounded Survivor!
