SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
TEXAS at OKLAHOMA STATE (7:50 p.m. ET): Interesting to note that both of these Big 12 powers were idle last weekend but bye week may come back to haunt visiting Texas Longhorns who had scored 45 and 66 points in their tilts prior to the break time. Now,'Horns playing their Big 12 opener and did you realize they're 6-11 SU (straight-up) and 6-11 ATS (against the spread) versus fellow conference foes the past two years? Now, QB Ash looking for second consecutive road win following that recent 66-31 smack down of Ole Miss in which Ash completed 19-of-23 passes for 326 yards with four scoring strikes while the Okie State side isn't saying - yet - whether or not Cowboys QB Lunt (leg) will get green-lighted for this Fox prime-time affair. Check with Jim Hurley on game-day morning and we'll set you straight!
BAYLOR at WEST VIRGINIA (12 p.m. ET): It's time to welcome the WVU Mountaineers to the Big 12 Conference and this battle of ranked teams (Baylor is #25; West Virginia is #9) could be a closer-than-the-experts-think deal here. Note that Bears slinger Florence has thrown for at least 300 yards and three TDs in fancy 3-and-oh start and so maybe the successor to Heisman Trophy winner Griffin III could match stats here with'Neer QB Smith who is averaging 357.3 passing yards per game this year to go along with his 12 TDs and 0 INTs. Okay, so "totals" price right now stands at whopping 78 points but you just want a winner and stat fact here is West Virginia's 17-23-1 spreadwise as chalk since the start of 2008 season. Just sayin'!
ARIZONA STATE at CALIFORNIA (4 p.m. ET): Hey, maybe first-year A-State boss-man Graham finally has found a home as 2011 "pit stop" at Pitt was utter disaster but these here-and-now Sun Devils have won three of first four games and the newfangled offense is averaging a haughty 41.3 ppg. Graham simply didn't have a top-flight slinger last year in his brief Big East stay but QB Kelly (1,000 yards passing with 6 TDs and 2 INTs this season) is an efficient sort and could hand Cal its third consecutive loss if he's got time to survey the field. Note that Arizona State's defense has posted 14 QB sacks so far and now comin' after erratic Bears slinger Maynard (4 TDs and 4 INTs). If Graham is gonna be a keeper for this Tempe team, a win will get'em a round of applause even from his many detractors!
WISCONSIN at NEBRASKA (8 p.m. ET): No real reason to be surprised that Big Red is a double-digit betting favorite here'cause Wisky Badgers really have been out of synch for most of this 2012 campaign. Note that HC Bielema's club is 0-4 vig-wise and averaging a mere 21.5 ppg so far and how about the fact Wisconsin ranks 107th nationally in passing offense and 83rd nationally in rushing offense ... egads! Throw into the mix the fact that one-time Heisman Trophy candidate RB Ball (head injury for the second time this year) had to be removed from last week's non-cover home win against UTEP and you see why Husker Nation expects to win this prime-timer. On the flip side, the return last week of Nebraska RB Burkhead (119 yards rushing and two TDs in 73-7 win against Idaho State) from an early-season knee injury boosts this already-rich backfield. Feeling okay, Bo

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30
CAROLINA at ATLANTA (1 p.m. ET): Love these cable TV shows that rank the NFL top teams as these here-and-now Falcons were #1 on a lot of folks' boards but - than again - wasn't that the case last week with the SF 49ers before their visit into the Twin Cities? Gut feeling is HC Smith's squad has all the goods this year and already Birds are tidy 3-and-oh against the odds with covers against Chiefs, Broncos and Chargers but now Carolina QB Newton had extra time to digest ugly 36-7 prime-time loss to the Giants last Thursday Night and so something's telling us this may have a doozy ending in sight. Note that Falcs turned the ball over just once in last Sunday's 27-3 win at San Diego but will they be so fortunate here?
TENNESSEE at HOUSTON (1 p.m. ET): Here's hoping that Texans' QB Schaub doesn't lose any body parts in this AFC South clash at Reliant Stadium but $64,000 question is what's left in the Titans' tank after wild 44-41 OT win against Detroit in Week 3 battle royal? No doubt Tennessee RB Johnson (just 24 yards on 14 carries last Sunday) has endured rough start to this current campaign and no way will double-digit dog road folks be in the mix here unless he heats it up but gotta believe Texans LB Cushing (among others) will be spying him all over the field and so WRs Wright/Britt (13 receptions between'em last weekend) must step it up. P.S., did you know that Houston now has covered its last six games in a row while dating back to last year?
NEW ORLEANS at GREEN BAY (4:25 p.m. ET): Think there's enough storylines to make the Fox-TV telecast rounds here? The Packers - fresh off Monday Night's robbery in Seattle - must put that zebra-botched result in the rear view mirror but how about protecting QB Rodgers who was your basic human pin cushion against Seahawks defense in that Week 3 clash? On the flip side, New Orleans now has lost its last four games in a row dating back to NFC Divisional Playoff setback in San Francisco and among last week's truly troubling stats in the 27-24 OT loss to KC was fact TE Graham accounted for mere 16 receiving yards ... say what!

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1
CHICAGO at DALLAS: Great spread stat to feed you here is that the Cowboys are now 5-12 against the odds at home since the start of 2010 ... so what's going on, Jerry? Now, Dallas laying FG-plus here against Bears bunch that sorely missed RB Forte in last week's 23-6 win/cover against St. Louis - or didn't you notice the fact Citowners rushed the ball 34 times for only 103 yards (a 3.1 yards-per-carry average)? If Bears defense can score again here - DB Wright raced 45 yards with pick six against QB Bradford and the Rams last week - than this could be upset alert time in Arlington but odds are Cowboys will send an extra pass rusher or two against immobile Cutler and keep close eyes on his sideline "chats" with O-linemen!
This game is rife with subplots, including the saga of "Under the Gun" QB's Jay Cutler and Tony Romo. Which one steps up? JIM HURLEY is 3-1 on Monday’s and has the answer again tonight. Just $25
THEY'RE PICTURE PERFECT (SO FAR!)
Okay, so three weeks into the 2012 NFL season and there are only four teams that sport 3-and-oh spread marks and they are ...The Arizona Cardinals, the aforementioned Atlanta Falcons, the Houston Texans and - drum roll please - the Tampa Bay Bucs.
