John Chancey went 1-1, but is down 25.26 units assuming 100 unit bets on each game. Here are Chancey’s takes on his week 1 bets:
Pick: Nebraska -7.5
Chancey says: I didn’t think the Huskers would be great this year, but I thought they were 7.5 points better than the Illini. Maybe better coaching gave Illinois a boost. Nebraska may consider giving their program a boost soon.
Pick: UCLA -17.5
I wouldn’t get too excited after playing Hawaii, but UCLA did play well and might have a running game this season, which will help DTR. They have a tough schedule, but I think the Bruins have taken a step forward.
