Despite the Arena League level of scoring due to poor pitching, steroids, and (especially) the juiced postseason ball, World Series TV ratings have plummeted 20%. The Breeders Cup is at Arlington Park outside of Chicago this Saturday and here`s a tip for you on Saturday, don`t bet the favorites. So many bombs have dropped in Breeders Cup races over the years that simply saying "all to win" at the window before every race every year would have made you money over the history of the series. So find a reason to like some price horses if you`re playing. We`ll have one on our free hotline on Saturday morning for you so call 1-770-618-8700. Incidentally, ask your offshore book if they are lifting payout limits on Breeders Cup day above the usual 20-1 on win bets and 100-1 on exotics. If they aren`t you should make sure your bets on bombs are going through the tote. It`s one thing for Joe Paterno to criticize the officials after overtime losses but did Northwestern coach Randy Walker really have cause to criticize the officials after the Wildcats 49-0 loss to Penn State? Maybe, as one of his players was injured on a crackback clip that wasn`t called. Lots of action on cell block SEC this week, as Arkansas senior defensive lineman Jermaine Brooks was arrested for having over 7 pounds of pot, over $16,000, and several rifles and handguns. Razorback coach Houston Nutt, notorious for not suspending convicted players even if they serve jail terms, broke new ground by kicking Brooks off the team. Weapons and drugs are typical activities for miscreant college football players but could one of Jackie Sherril`s character guys possibly be involved in counterfeiting? Mississippi State tailback Nick Turner, a highly touted freshman recruit, was arrested for passing fake $100 bills at a Starkville nightclub. The Denver Broncos are only 2-2 the last four games (and only 1-2-1 against the spread) but have outgained those opponents by 202, 151, 103, and 173 yards. We think the scoreboard will catch up to the stats in New England, as the Pats average rushing yardage deficit of 95-143 will have trouble with Denver`s strong 133-76 average rushing advantage. Pats scored 30,44, and 41 in their first three but only 14, 13, and 10 since so take the trey with the Broncos on Sunday. No reason to care about this game but isn`t UTEP kicker Keith Robinson kicking a 59 yard field goal with 11 seconds left to beat Rice 38-35 a great way for the Miners to get their first Division 1-A win? Robinson`s boot was the fifth longest tee-free made FG in college football. What`s are the most important factors in selecting an offshore sports book? Check out www.consumerbet.com for that article and plenty of other offshore wagering news and information. Some strange stats in the MAC the past couple of weeks. Two weeks ago Miami-Ohio ran a staggering 106 plays in their 48-41 loss to Northern Illinois while last week Ohio U ran the ball 66 times while their only pass was incomplete in the Bobcats 50-0 pasting of Central Michigan. Terrell Owens makes you forget this, but not all NFL players are pampered jerks, most are just trying to scrape out a living in a league where the average tenure is less than four years. Take the case of Maurice Smith, the young RB who led the Falcons in rushing last year. Smith played with an injured knee the last several games last season, taking one for the team with his reward being a reputation as damaged goods. He was cut by the Falcons and was out of football after a cup of coffee with the Packers. In no other league does a young guy go from tops in an important category for a team to just being gone so fast as in the NFL. Injuries to TJ Duckett and a backup RB saw Smith re-signed by the Falcons and his dream lives on for another week or two at least. We`ve done pretty well with our "ugly added game of the week" here so let`s get as ugly as it gets this week. Take Louisiana-Monroe as a home dog against Utah State. USU forced OT with New Mexico on a Hail Mary on the game`s final play and then won when the Lobos shanked an extra point in overtime. The Aggies seem to be living on borrowed time and no team with an average rushing deficit of 77-248 should be favored by almost a TD. Hold your nose and take the points with Louisiana-Monroe.
