As the good friend of The Coug. Denny Green once said:
"The Cougar was exactly who we thought he was"
"Crown his ass!!!"
That's right The Cougar is a player and you can check his stats.
20-10 ATS for all 2006 bowl games
12-5 ATS for all picks on insideplays.com
6-1 for all NFL picks on insideplays.com
Are any of your surprised that The Coug is leading the insideplays.com bowl contest? Since The Coug. is hanicapping professional he will be donating the winnings to his favorite charity...The Center For Lost and Orphaned Baby Cougars.
Tonight is the night all loyal Cougar fans have been waiting for. The Cougar's first ever FREE five star special. If you have been following the Cougar the past month then you are up quite a bit of coin. Tonight is the night The Coug. wants you to push it. And he wants you to push it in the biggest college game of the year.
Ohio St. -7 over Florida
This line has been bet down after opening at -8.5. The line started to drop after the following stat was found. Ohio St. is 0-7 aganist the SEC in bowl games. Betting on that stat is ridiculious and The Cougar will gladly take the extra point and a half. Here are the things you should be looking at when hanicapping this game.
WHY OHIO STATE?????
* OSU has better players at every offense position.... especially the skill positions
* Florida has the worst field goal kicker in the NCAA.... Florida is only 4-13 in field goal atttempts this year. Coach Meyer has already said he won't go for many field goals pas the 20 yeard line. In what looks to be a very defenisvie game this could be a huge advantage.
Expect a defensive game where Florida will stall in the red zone. Ohio St. leads the NCAA in fewest big plays allowed (plays over 25 yards). That means Florida will have to grind their way to the endzone and will miss out on scoring opportunities by not being able to kick field goals.
That is why The Coug also likes the under.
Expect OSU to use it's two headed running attack to slowly wear down a very good Gator rush defense.
A great stat when playing over/under is the "rebounding defense trend". How do defenses respond the game AFTER they let up and OVER. Both of these teams ended the season with an over. Combined OSU and Flordia bounce back from and over and cover the under in their next game 85% of the time since 2004. As a player that is a huge stat. Expect the Coug. to jump all over that.
In conclusion The Cougar advises a bet like this.
30% of your wager on OSU
30% of your wager on the Under
25% teasing OSU and the Total
15% paralying OSU and the Under.
Good Luck and happy hunting!!!!!!!!
