    Just found this article out a few hours ago, which highlights 7 games Vegas is already picking with the Buffs, and in all 7 we are picked to lose.

    I personally would pick 4 games where I think we'd at least beat the spread: CSU; OSU; Arizona and USC. I think we win CSU, lose to OSU but beat the spread, give Arizona a run for their money and maybe even pull off an upset against USC sans Kiffin. Regardless of the W/L those are the 4 I would think we could beat the spread on.

    That would be my exact picks from that list.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Arizona and USC are upset wins for the Buffs. UA is on October 26th and USC on November 23.

    I wonder why the CU-Utah game isn't listed?

    The line on the CSU game has gone from CU +3.5 to CU -1.5, fwiw

    That's a pretty big move. Confidence in MMac?

    The lines are set naturally with last years results in mind.

    We were a terrible team last year and based on talent we will be a terrible team this year.

    That said I think that even in losing we are going to be a much better team this year. I still expect some blowouts to teams that have talent levels that are on other planets from us. We could play our very best game against Oregon and their speed will still run right by us, USC as well.

    At the same time I see some schools that with a combination of our improved coaching and preparation and their natural overlooking of us are going to see much tighter games. Until the Zona schools and UCLA prove they can actually be quality consistent teams I see us competing much better with them, not neccessarily winning but at least showing up which we didn't last year. Does Oregon State come back like they did last year or do they revert,

    Should be at least a more interesting year to watch even if we don't win a lot of games.

    Mtn - only you could take a multiple choice question, write a 5 paragraph response, and not even answer the question. :lol:

    Must be because there is not a lot of money coming in on CSU right now. I've got this game as a PK on 5Dimes, wish I got the +3.5 line.
