Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: Thursday Night Actionby Daniel Corrigan October 29, 2020 0 comments
Now that baseball and basketball are over, we have reached that time of the year where our only focus is on football. Normally, having just one sport would stink, but we have some money to make this weekend. Winning tonight’s bets only means more cash to roll into the weekend games.
2020 Record: 31-33

Best Spread NFL: Falcons +2 (-110)
There is just no way that the Falcons could lose after the most heartbreaking loss of the season. All Todd Gurley had to do was not score, but he did. That is a loss that you look back on once the season is over and think “What if?” The Falcons will not likely be in the playoffs, but you never know how much momentum comes from winning a close game, especially against a sneaky good Lions team. Teddy Bridgewater has been the king of covering spreads, but Matt Ryan is having another under-the-radar great year. The Falcons will win outright tonight.
Best Spread CFB: Georgia Southern -3.5 (-113)
Georgia Southern has lost over 30 players to COVID in their opening games and has still turned into one of the more effective triple option offenses. While South Alabama has a great passing attack, their front seven on defense will have a hard time stopping a very dynamic GSU attack. Side note: the triple option is this planet’s greatest creation.
Best Point Total: Fresno State vs. Colorado State O/58
Fresno State got absolutely torched by Hawaii’s offense last Saturday, allowing over 550 total yards with an amazing 20 missed tackles. Colorado State is more known for their run game, which is concerning for the over but Fresno State is also top-30 in pace between plays. Combine that with a bad defense and you’ve got yourself the recipe for a sneaky over.
