Gambling 2K8: Part Three (Still Undefeated)

The Brian Vickers System was a smashing success in week one! Story time...

As you may have heard, Clemson's CJ Spiller and James Davis make up one of the best backfields in the country - if not the best. Anyway, Vegas offered a prop that was straight out of the Brian Vickers handbook: CJ Spiller/James Davis (-140) vs. Terry Grant/Glen Coffee (Even). Vegas was simply asking you to pick the tandem with the most rushing yards. Sure, you'd pay have to pay a little more if you wanted the Clemson guys, but not that much. Plus, in classic Vickers fashion, Craig had never heard of Grant or Coffee...which made this our first bet using the Brian Vickers System.

And it won! While the Alabama guys didn't do much, they easily out-gained the much-heralded Spiller and Davis, who finished with a combined twenty rushing yards.

Brian Vickers 1, Vegas 0.

Also, and this has nothing to do with Brian Vickers, but Tennessee is the Lock of the Millennium tonight against UCLA. The Vols are favored by eight at the moment and should have no trouble beating the decimated Bruins by three or four touchdowns.

End of words.
