THE COLLEGE GRIDIRON UPDATE:

ENOUGH OF THESE EARLY-SEASON

CUPCAKE GAMES” AS BLOWOUTS

(UNFORTUNATELY) REIGN SUPREME

The National Football League has played a grand total of 56 Super Bowl games – and we’ve never had a head-to-head matchup pitting the Buffalo Bills versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

But perhaps that all changes in SB LVII come February 2023.

Well, if you watched both the Bills and Eagles absolutely demolish their Week 2 foes in prime-time last night – Buffalo squashed 9.5-point underdog Tennessee 41-7 while the Eagles mashed the 3-point pup Minnesota Vikings 24-7 – you sure got the sense that somethin’ special is happening ‘round these Bills and these Eagles.

They are now a combined 4-and-oh SU (straight-up) this 2022 season – and they’re 3-and-1 ATS (against the spread) – and neither seems to have a glaring weakness.

Now the question is whether the Las Vegas prices “respect” Buffalo and / or Philly even more the rest of the way.

*******************

Okay, so straight from the “No Kidding Department”.

No, you didn’t want to be an NFL club on that list of teams that blew big leads en route to Week 2 losses – just say hello to …

* The Baltimore Ravens who surrendered 28 fourth-quarter points in that 42-38 home loss against 3.5-point underdog Miami. Couldn’t anybody in that Baltimore secondary figure out how to handle either / both WR Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle? Geez!

* The Cleveland Browns who managed to blow a 30-17 lead with less than two minutes remaining in their 31-30 home loss versus the 6-point pup New York Jets. Nobody on the CBS broadcast mentioned it but we will – why didn’t Browns’ RB Nick Chubb merely pull up shy of the end zone with that “insurance” TD instead of giving the J-E-T-S another breath of air? Duh!

And last, but not least, the Las Vegas Raiders mangled a 20-0 halftime lead — and a 23-7 lead midway through the fourth quarter – while losing 29-23 in overtime against 5.5-point dog Arizona and that leads us to question whether it’s already a “lost season” for the silver-and-black.

Truth is there are five NFL teams that are sitting there with 0-and-2 SU records while we zoom into the third week of action – yes, one of ‘em being defending AFC champion Cincinnati – but you gotta wonder if the Raiders can ever climb out of this hole.

Remember the Raiders were a rather vogue pick to make hay this year – albeit a long shot at 29-to-1 to win it all – and out of the chute they’ve been beaten 24-19 at the 3.5-point fav Los Angeles Chargers and then this dreg showing at home against ‘Zona.

Note that the Raiders have not started a season 0-2 spreadwise since 2012 – in fact, this AFC West crew had begun three of the last five campaigns with snazzy 2-and-oh spread starts – but it’s scary time as first-year head coach Josh McDaniels’ crew heads into reeling Tennessee this Sunday.

Hmm, wondering if the Raiders are second-guessing that late-game strategy of often sending just two pass rushers after elusive Arizona QB Kyler Murray who had all day to throw, scramble and run while getting the Cardinals their two TDs and two two-point conversions.

On Thursday Nite, it’s …

PITTSBURGH (1-1) at CLEVELAND (1-1) – 8:15 p.m. ET, Amazon Prime TV

Wait, Mitch Trubisky vs. Jacoby Brissett … now that’s a quarterback duel, eh?

Spread Stuff – Cleveland’s failed to cover five of its last six head-to-head showdowns against Pittsburgh with the lone Browns’ cover coming in that 48-37 playoff win as 5.5-point underdogs back in 2020. Overall, the Steelers are 20-8-3 versus the vig as point-grabbers since the start of the 2017 campaign.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL UPDATE

Let’s get the “paperwork” out of the way first:

College Football Betting Favorites last weekend banged out a truly solid 41-29-2 ATS record and so the up-to-the-minute season log now reads NCAA Betting Favorites are 132-107-6 ATS with 2 Pick ‘Em games, that’s good for a .552 winning rate. Again, solid.

What’s not so solid is the scheduling in major-college football — yes, we know that Power 5 teams don’t always like to be challenged in their September / pre-conference sked but this past weekend was downright ridiculous … check it out:

Michigan 59, Uconn 0

Wisconsin 66, New Mexico State 7

Ohio State 77, Toledo 21 (no, we’re not picking on the Big 10!)

Baylor 42, Texas State 7

Iowa State 43, Ohio 10

and Alabama 63, UL-Monroe 7

Okay, so the “high-profile” non-conference tilt between Penn State at Auburn wound up being a blowout too with the Nittanies cruising to a lopsided 41-12 win but may suggest – make that demand – that next year we get some Power 5 versus Power 5 tilts in September that’s gonna whet the whistle of the average college football fan.

Way too many blowouts – not nearly enough drama.

If you’re searching for the best conference matchups this September weekend then consider the likes of Clemson at Wake Forest (ACC), Florida at Tennessee (SEC) and USC at Oregon State (Pac-12) and we’’’ preview a bunch of Saturday showdowns in our next column space. Got it?
