A lot of people were on the bandwagon of the Memphis Tigers scoring a lot of points against the Auburn Tigers. Needless to say, a lot of people were very wrong. The contest was looking doomed to finish under .500 for the first time in a number of years until the Louisville/aTm game ended. Louisville picked up the win, but more importantly, the final score of 27-21 resulted in a tie on the Over/Under of 48. And while that is a push in Vegas, here at Rock M, that is a win for EVERYONE. Suddenly, we were right back in it, even after the Badgers couldn't cover and score enough against USC. So with the tie, the contest is now only six picks under .500 at 49.94%. Three games today could finally push us over the top.
Speaking of the top, we've not seen much change up there. Pat Forde and Icknae remain wrapped up in their contest-long battle, with both now sitting at 36-20. They are joined by fengsuede and that group of three has a two game lead on a group at 34-22 which features defending champion MatthewVogt, 1Believer, Highonlife and fnu2.
On the other end, we have a three-way tie for the bottom with threadkiller, Zackstl, and Evan Pfaff at 22-34 with another four people back one game and then a big group at 24-32. Lots of movement still to come.
On to today's action (which is already underway with Florida State and Houston), let's take a look at where the contest might be headed:
- Houston (+7): 55% (looking good as Houston is currently up 21-3 coming towards the half)
- Over 53: 73% (may need some help here)
- #1 Clemson (+3): 58%
- Under 65: 65%
- #2 Alabama (-8.5): 66%
- Under 49.5: 52%
