Money Bet of the Century | Week 7 | 2-4

Money Betters-

It's called a heater. 

And the MBOC is on one.

If you weren't a believer before, you definitely are reading at the right time. To recap, the MBOC started out the year cold. Uncharacteristically cold. But like Penn State, which is on a 4 game winning streak.....(and furthermore could be undefeated if they had a field goal kicker that could drain a 35 yarder)...the MBOC is back and cranking on all cylinders.

Last week's Money Bet was the Gameday 'Game of the Week', and an almost shutout of #5 Georgia. The last 7 points were garbage points, as SC and 'Head Ball Coach' went on to show they are one of the best teams in the country in early October. Hey.....I TOLD YOU THAT SC COULD GO! CLICK CLACK!

LinkedIn babe of the week is back. Thanks for the recommendation coming internationally from Tim W in Germany. Congratulations Alexandra Cohen of the 'Greater New York City Area'. Your work at Michael Kors as a Licensing Coordinator makes you 'fashion forward', and your degree from Southern Methodist University lets us know you are a rule breaker. Good double combo, Alexandra. Hope those yanks aren't giving you too much of a hard time up in new york with the southern accent.

Morale has been good around the office, as we look forward to some great games this weekend. Field Correspondent and longtime Oregon State supporter Otis Kimzey is "nervous about it, personally"
He acknowledges that "BYU has a highly ranked Run Defense--- and with a backup QB, it's going to be tough". BYU is favored by 5, but you can't count Oregon State out of the game at this point.

For all of the Big 12 conference fans, the time-honored Red River Shootout is this weekend in Cowboys Stadium. Should be a good game as always. Oklahoma is favored in that game by 3.5 in that game, but Texas wants to make their only loss to West Virginia look like a fluke OT loss. Kick off temp is 77 in that game with winds out of the Southwest at 10-15 miles per hour. Not sure why you need to know that stat, but maybe it will be important.

Friends, the game of the week happens at high noon tomorrow in Aimes, Iowa at Jack Trice Stadium. And it really was not a complicated pick this week. My man Collin Klein's going to be looking to get it done against the Cyclones. Klein has thrown for 887 yards this year and 7 touchdowns. But the real strength of this K State team lies in the rush. Not only can Collin thrown the ball, but he's the dual threat rush. He's already 73 times for 405 yards, but you can also bet  that John Hubert will be getting the ball for a little ground and pound. The Junior out of Waco, Texas is having the beginning of a nice little season with 527 yards and 8 TDs. When the run gets jammed up, Collin will be looking to my boy Tramaine Thompson to get open against Iowa States CB defense. He's averaging 16.9 yards a catch this season with 3 tds. Look for him to pick up 1 in this game.

Iowa State is riding high after their win last week against TCU. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Does anyone remember when TCU was in the national championship conversation? Guess what happens when you aren't playing weekly cupcakes?

Iowa Defense should put up a pretty good fight against the K-State run but Iowa State has dropped four straight in this series -- since a 31-20 win in the Wildcats' last visit to Ames on Nov. 3, 2007. Additionally, Iowa State had lost 11 straight home games against ranked opponents -- by an average of 21.1 point.

The line in this game is Kansas State by -6.5, perfect to win by a touchdown. But they go bigger then that...K-State wins by 14! So get out there and go lay a bet, it's MBOC approved!!
