To the weekend gambler, +43.5 spread looks like a gift.
What do a lot of betters tend to think?
Let’s face the facts, not everybody can be a sharp player. Sharp players are wise to spreads because they spend countless, untold hours studying college football. They learn the trends, they find out who plays well on turf, on grass, on the road, at home, at night, who plays well in the early games, the late games and all the many gambling trends. Such as the last 25 games against the spread, against the total and much, much more. Most average everyday folks, have nowhere near the time needed to learn all this information.
What do they do?
A lot of them wing it! They bet on a gut feeling or what their girlfriend or wife thinks or they listen to the talking heads on the networks. Folks, this is a mistake, a big one. Betting like this will take you to the poor house quickly. You can’t just wing it, you can’t fly by the seat of your pants and expect great results. Oh, you may get lucky from time to time, for sure this happens, but eventually, your luck will run out.
To a weekend gambler or a non-prepared gambler, the +43.5 looks great. This is a number that jumps off the board and says bet it. Sometimes this strategy works, a lot of times it simply doesn’t work.

Alabama is by far the better team. Fresno has no chance whatsoever to win, let alone keep it close. Fresno has a good quarterback and more than 9 starters returning this year. They have a solid defensive unit and a great head coach that comes from Cal.
It’s still not enough to keep it even kind of close! Fresno may as well be playing the Patriots! This is going to be Ugly and it will get ugly fast with Alabama not looking back. Alabama will not take names; there will be no checking the naughty and nice list. They will step on Fresno’s neck and turn the lights out.
Pick: Fresno/Alabama Over 54
