If you’ve hitched your wagon to Hlastradamus’ star, or hitched your star to his wagon, you’ve gotten quite the little taste for yourself.
The prophet is doing what prophets do. They prophecize. Last week Hlastradamus was 4-1-1 against the Nevada numbers, running his season-total to 18-10-1.
One of last week’s most excellent examples: Ohio State -3.5 vs. Nebraska. Welcome to the Horseshoe, Huskers.
Another: Florida +2.5 vs. LSU. The Gators have had two weeks to steel themselves for this return to glory.
And another: Oregon -24.5 vs. Washington. It’s a lot of points. But Oregon is a lot of team.
Don’t you hate braggarts?
Still … go to one of Las Vegas’ plush casinos and go 18-10-1 on any given 29 wagers, and the world will unfold for you.
Plus, you’ll make money.
But enough living in the past. What about this week?
Iowa +10 at Michigan State. The Hawkeyes haven’t lost by double-digits since, well, since the Insight Bowl. Hey, that was 10 months ago.
Notre Dame -7.5 vs. Stanford. Hlastradamus doesn’t feel compelled to explain everything this week.
Baylor -8.5 vs. TCU. This is the Big 12, TCU. And that team you’re going to try to stay above in the standings is Kansas.
Texas Tech +3.5 vs. West Virginia. This is the Big 12, West Virginia. And you can’t get psyched up to play at that kind of level you showed at Texas last week and against Baylor the week before. The un-psycher is going from Austin one week to Lubbock the next.
Louisiana Tech +7.5 vs. Texas A&M. In Ruston, La., fine-dining is Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. Now if you’ll excuse the sage, he must leave you now. He is hungry for a Caniac Combo.
