Expected Blowouts and Close Games Saturday Offers Opportunity
for Online Gamblers This Weekend

Joe Duffy (

If you want a Labor Day “Winathon”, you must remember our
theme song: “You’ll never win alone”. 
With some help from the editors of, we take a look at
some big games Saturday, at least from the standpoint of the bettor.

North Texas-Texas

North Texas’ chance of pulling off
the upset of historic proportions took a serious hit when it was announced
their starting QB Daniel Meager has not fully recovered from a concussion.  Sophomore Matt Rivers gets the start.  Rivers did practice well, throwing four
touchdowns in three scrimmages.

Stevie Vincent, one of the handicappers on notes the
numbers favor the defending National Champions. North Texas
is 0-9 to the number in non-conference games the last three years, while Texas
is 10-1 ATS on grass.

Notre Dame-Georgia Tech

The Irish come in with very high hopes, ranked No. 2 in
the country. But their high powered offense goes up against a GA Tech team
ranked 13th against the run last year on defense. Tech has a recent
history of winning games they were not expected to.

The Irish defense returns nine starters. Checking the
databases at, we
see that Tech has covered both series meetings the last 10 years.  

Akron-Penn State

Everything went right for Penn
last year, but they must
replace QB Michael Robinson, the Big Ten offensive MVP. New starter Anthony
Morelli will have four fellow new starters in front of him on the offensive
line. Note that Penn State
has gone under 26-11 to non-conference foes since 1992.
