UFC 75: 3 money making picks

I want to get my UFC picks out there for this weekend’s free fight card on Spike tv. Dana White is a genius. He needs as many people as possible to see the Rampage/Henderson fight so everybody gets to watch the winner and know the winner. So far since I started posting my picks I am 12-5-1 and was 5-2 with my UFC 74 picks…french canadians be damned.

1) Bisping (-225) versus Hamill (+185) – I want to start by linking you to mmajunkie.com. This guy interviewed Bisping and it is hilarious. Click this link to read the interview: Michael Bisping Discusses UFC 75 — A UFCjunkie.com Interview Some of my favorite lines include:

UFCjunkie.com: Were they (hamill and Abbadi) really that tight on the show?
Michael Bisping: Maybe there was a little man-love going on. (laughs) Seriously, you could see the connection. There was some electricity there. But whatever. It’s 2007. I’m all for gays. More power to them. (laughs) But honestly, they did portray (Matt) as a bit of a teddy bear, and that wasn’t the case at all.

UFCjunkie.com: Well, you’re both light heavyweights. If they offered you a fight against Tito, is that something you would take?
Michael Bisping: Of course. I’d be f—ng happy to sock his big basketball head all over the Octagon. (laughs) I’m only joking. You’re going to quote me on that, aren’t you?

This is going to be a fun fight and both guys are undefeated. I think Bisping in front of his home crowd will have a lot to prove. He knows Hammill does not like him and will be coming for him quick and strong. I think the first 30 seconds will be fast and furious and then they will buckle down and Bisping will dismantle him. Bisping wins this easy at home.

2) Cro Cop (-450) vs. Cheick Kongo (+300) – I think this fight is a joke and just a way to get Cro Cop moving up the rankings. Kongo can not hang with Cro Cop in any way. His last two fights went to decision and he was not impressive. I think Cro Cop comes into this fight very pissed off. There was talk of him retiring after Gonzaga knocked his ass out but he is back and is so methodical you know he only came back for one purpose…to regain his pride, to show the world who he is and what he is made of and to move up the heavyweight ranks for a title shot. Cro Cop knocks him out.

3) Jackson (-130) vs. Dan Henderson (even) – I love this fight. This is what fans want and hope to get if Dana can sign Fedor. The fans get a unification belt of UFC and Pride. Fans no longer need to debate who is better, the title holder of UFC or the title holder of Pride. This is going to be a fun fight. Henderson has never been knocked out and Rampage is always looking for the knockout. Henderson’s losses have come by submission (twice to Noguiera) and by decision. He just does not get knocked out. In Henderson’s last fight he knocked out Wanderlei Silva and before that went to decision with Vitor Belfort. I recently heard an interview with Dan Henderson on the Bubba the Love Sponge Show and he is the man. Dan is all business and ready to lay some damage on Jackson. I guess I am taking a simple apporoach to this one….Silva knocked out Rampage and Henderson knocked out Silva. I just think Henderson is more well rounded and has the ability to press the action if these guys stall and take it to decision. I am picking Hendo all the way.

NCAA Football: Week 2 picks – Even better than opening day!!!! – 6 picks

We went 5-2 last week.

Here are our picks for this weekend and make sure you notice the game times. One tonight, one Friday with 4 on Saturday.

Thursday, September 6
1) Oregon St (-3.5) at Cincinnati – Here is the deal with this game. Cincy is a tough team, especially at home. They almost beat Ohio St. last year. Also, Cincy opened up with a blowout of SE Missouri St. Well Bearcats fans… this is not SE Missouri St. Oregon St. is a scrappy team too. Last week they beat Utah 24-7 after starting very slow and going into the half tied at 7-7. That will not happen this week. Or. St. will be ready to play. As we stated last week, Oregon St. has one of the best offensive lines in NCAA football and they are getting Sammie Stroughter back this week. Sammie did not suit up last week and this week he will definitely be a difference maker.

Friday, September 7
2) Navy at Rutgers (-17) – This line is completely flawed and provides an opportunity just like the LSU/Miss St. game did last week. Rutgers should win this game by 30 points. Navy barely beat Temple last week and will simply can not hang with this Rutgers team. Last year the game was 34-0 and we do not see any reason why it will not be similar. We bet this game the hardest of the week at 5 times our normal bet.

3) West Virginia (-24) at Marshall – West Virginia knows they play a weak schedule and the only way the can compensate for it is to pummel teams and show off Slaton and White as Heisman candidates. Last year West Virginia won 42-10. West Virginia is 8-3-1 against the spread on turf in their last 12 and Marshall is 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games. Marshall could not stop the run last week against Miami and this West Virginia team can run significantly better than the Canes can. Do not fear 24 points. This has blowout written all over it.

4) Cal (-14) at Colorado St. – This game has let down written all over it. Cal was 2-3 on the road last year and has not impressed away from Berkeley. Colorado St. suffered a heart breaking loss against Colorado last week and what we saw is they can not stop the run. We all saw what happened to Tennessee when they let Forsett run wild. We know the Pac-10 inside and out and we think CAL has the weapons, the swagger and the right attitude this year. They know they can play with anybody and have USC at home this year. Cal is going to continue to roll, the nation just does not know it yet.

5) Southern Miss at Tennessee (-10.5) – Tennessee has won its last 12 home openers and is coming off the game where CAL smacked them around. One good addition is that of RB LaMarcus Coker who was suspended for the CAL game. So Miss rolled up rushing yards last week against Tennessee – Martin and I think Tennessee will work long and hard this week to recover from the holes they gave up to Forsett. So. Miss is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine road games and we do not think they have what it takes to compete against Tennessee after a loss.

6) Wisconsin (-25.5) at UNLV – UNLV is playing a red shirt freshman at QB and Wisconsin starts a 5th year senior. UNLV is not good against the run and the Badgers will look to run, run and run more with PJ Hill. UNLV is 2-6 against the spread against teams with a winning record and 7-17-1 against the spread in their last 25 games on grass. This spread should be over 30 and we are going to ride Wisconsin after missing out on their performance last week.

As always… our money is where our mouth is. If you ever want our opinions on games let us know. We check the blog often and will respond quickly. We want to reiterate that we are not here to pick every game, we simply pick games where we see flaws in the lines.
