    Re: Playoff point spreads

    Don't mean any smack, but why do the computers love the MVC so much? The third-place SoCon team beat the CCU team that WIU struggled against (CCU outgained them on offense but turned the ball over 5 times and lost by 7) 43-26 and we beat 41-16 a SCSU team that's better than the Lehigh team UNI lost to.

    If I was a gambling type, I'd take Appy and Wofford to cover their spreads.

    Re: Playoff point spreads

    I agree with 7 or 8 favorites, but I'm laying the points on everybody but WM/GSU. I think the spreads are a little close and I actually think GSU can take the Tribe straight up!!!
    I would have gone to App State or Ga Southern, but they wouldn't let me in...when they found out my parents were married!

    Great teams win 10 games, it just took us 3 years to do it

    I guarentee no team in the country drinks more beer than us...come to think of it that might be why we don't win too many gamesxbeerdrinkx

    I've suffered thru a 1-11 season

    It's fun to be a Moc again!!!!

    I think that 9 points might be a lil much for GSU/W&M. I would've thought it'd be closer to 4 or 5 points. Do they know something we don't?

    If I was a gambling man (yes, I'm copying you FCS_pwns), I'd take App, UNH and GSU (to cover).

    Lehigh was a 16 point dog to the Panthers last week and that didn't seem to faze them all that much. Kinda surprised to see Wofford favored by 4.5 over JSU. I could see them being favored but I would've expected it to be only a point or 2.

    I'd say App St, JSU, and SFA are the best bets against the spread.

    Keep in mind the lines are not necessarly what the experts (bookies) actually believe is going to happen, but rather a spread that will make the wagers fall 50/50. Thats why the line moves when too many people bet on one side.

    Sheesh, absolutely no love for WIU or the MVC. Had it occurred to you that WIU forced some of those turnovers? Nah, that's ok I get it...if WIU wins it's the other team that messed up and if they lose it's because they suck.
