Happy Friday Hi-Topper Nation. What a glorious day to be alive. The air is crisp, the coffee hot and the pigskins hotter. The CFB year is just starting to heat up and Week 2 is a notorious snooze fest as your traditional powers get in their mandated Cupcake University game before conference play really starts up. But alas nestled amongst the gimmie gimmie games are a few intriguing match ups worth watching, both non-conference and in conference.
Hi-Top Bets Overall Record – 2-1
The absolute free money locks hit like gangbusters and if you took our advice you are in the money. The Lil’ Dogg apologizes on behalf of the State of Wisconsin (who have yet to formally apologize themselves). The Badgers really screwed the pouch on a gimmie cover.
Week 2 Game of the Week
GEORGIA (-10) AT SOUTH CAROLINA
The #3 ranked Bulldogs are on the road at 24th ranked Gamecocks. Normally I don’t love a double digit road favorite especially when talking about an SEC conference match-up. But South Carolina are notorious for getting ranked early in the season then promptly crashing and burning in their first real test. Georgia returns a bunch of studs to a team that was SEC Champs and a hairs breath from the National Championship against and Alabama team they never should have been playing….but I digress….10 points should be nothing in this match up. Expect the Bulldogs to cruise in Columbia.
Lil’ Doggs Pick – UGA -10
Lil’ Dogg Lock 🔒 of the Week
New Mexico won their first game of the season 62-30 against a bowl subdivision team. They run a high flying spread offense but their defense couldn’t keep a turtle from escaping a barn. The Lobos travel to Madison to face a Badgers team that failed to cover 😡😡😡 in their win over Western Kentucky. All that being said Wisconsin will put up 50 points by halftime and the Lobos will drop a few late game TDs against the Badgers B Team defense. Translation – this game will have a ton of points. The Lil’ Dogg is going against Gambling Rule #42 and heading right back to the well with a team that stuck a knife in this pup’s eye last week but the play is just to good to pass on.
The 🔒 – UNM/Wisconsin OVER 59
The Le Cap Special of the Week
USC +6 at Stanford
Straight from Le Cap’s mouth: “I would normally lay points with a favorite early on, but this week is a tough slate of games for that. So, I’m grabbing the 6 points on the table and picking USC +6 Stanford.”
