Mad Dog (12-11-1)
Titans +6.5
Bucs +6
Falcons +1.5

Musburger (13-10-1)
Vikings -4.5
Seahawks -2
Ravens -3

Programming note: We’ll announce the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest consensus picks at 11:45 a.m. PT on The Green Zone.

Look for Matt Youmans’ college football forecast on the home page (for VSiN subscribers).

Big Bets rolling in

Patrick Everson of Covers reports . . .
From MGM’s Scott Shelton, the Duffel Bag Bettor bet on Halloween (because he liked a Thursday game): $50K two-teamer of Toledo -19.5 vs. Ball State (won) and Clemson -39 vs Louisville. Plus a $20K 3-teamer with same two teams plus Minnesota -9.5 vs. Illinois.

And this from Patrick:
The large player hitting MGM every week played high 5-figures on these bets: Rams at +1, -1 and -2 at Saints. The line has swung to Rams -2.5. He also bet the Chargers twice, at +2 and +1.5 vs. Seahawks.

Handicapping the Breeders’ Cup

Game Winner, the biggest favorite on Day 1 of the Breeders’ Cup races, showed why with a victory in the Juvenile. The Winner overcame the track speed bias, Ron Flatter writes.
