Re: 2012-13 Lock of the Day Contest, Week 6

Overall: 18-3
Week: 2-1

12/17: Pass
12/18: Miami (FL) (-4.5) over Central Florida
12/19: Pass
12/20: Eastern Michigan vs. Michigan over 117
12/21: Pass
12/22: Virginia Tech (-1.5) over Bradley

I couldn't believe the Miami line - likely the easiest pick in a while .... until the Michigan O/U.

I may be looking through shit-covered glasses at this point, but it seems like there are far fewer over-under lines this season, and nothing that really pops out as a bad line.

Alas, OverUnder, I knew you well.
I feel the same way. I did not play last season, but the over/under was my MO two seasons ago and few jump out at me this season.

yeah i'm not sure why there are only over/under for certain games, it's not just the site we use its all the sites out there. It seems like they are only doing over/under for tv games (espn/nbc/cbs)

There are A LOT of over/unders listed today. I'm going to stick to sucking at making picks against the line, but for all the over/under fans out there, today looks like a good chance to feast.

there are a lot today but still no where near who many in years past. It used to be every game that had a line also had an over/under even if it was Eastern Northern Michigan against Southern Central Montana

Yeah, that's totally how it should be. I was only speaking relatively compared to other days this season. I think I'm exceptionally bad at picking the over/unders, so it's probably just as well that I'm not tempted. Other people are not so lucky.
