The NFL lost an iconic figure in Al Davis this past week. But Davis’ Oakland Raiders honored their former owner’s memory with an emotional road win at Houston. The Raiders are starting to look more and more like a legitimate playoff team. The offense can run the ball better than any other team, and as long as Jason Campbell doesn’t make too many mistakes this team should be in the thick of the playoff race. Even the defense is starting to come around. In the words of Al Davis, ‘Just win baby.’

As we head into week 4 of the college football season, I think it’s safe to say the SEC is again the best conference in the country. LSU’s defense has looked unbeatable. Alabama is no slouch. Neither is Arkansas. Those two square off in Tuscaloosa this weekend. And don’t forget about South Carolina. Although they’ve been somewhat uninspiring, they look like the class of the East. If they can get through the regular season with just one loss, anything can happen in the SEC championship game. The Gamecocks have the coach, skilled position players, and defensive line to beat anyone.
The long wait is over. The first week of college football is here and week 1 has some good games.

With live feeds from the top sportsbooks in the business, make sure you’re getting the best number at the right time.
How bad are the Cowboys? After getting embarrassed in Green Bay, Jerry Jones finally dropped the ax on Wade Phillips. It feels like Brad Childress will soon be joining Phillips in the ranks of the unemployed. Problems are mounting in Minnesota, and once a head coach loses the respect of his players, it’s all over. One more misstep by Childress and he’s gone. And what about the Browns? They smoked the Pats at home.
The college football season is winding down. The Utes and Crimson Tide are no longer in the national championship picture. Oregon and Auburn each have a possible trap game before they face tougher teams to end their seasons. If one of the two slip up, TCU looks to be the team to make the big game. But if Oregon AND Auburn both lose, is it possible we could see a title game between Boise State and TCU? I doubt it, but that might be what it takes to move to a playoff system. Here is a look at some of the bigger games of the week with their odds. Remember that you can view all the opening and current points spreads from multiple sportsbooks on our college football lines page of the site.
The NFL season keeps getting stranger. Both the Steelers and Jets lose, and Oakland, Kansas City, Tampa Bay, and Detroit all win on the same Sunday. When was the last time those four teams won on the same day? And the Randy Moss experiment is over in Minnesota. The Vikings are in some serious trouble.

1. Oregon Ducks, 6-0 (2) – The new number one team is the powerful Oregon Ducks. Oregon had their bye this past week, which was a chance for a dinged up Ducks team to catch their breath. They take on the Bruins in Eugene on Thursday night. Last week: Bye. This week: vs. UCLA (3-3).
