#CheddarBay Week 14: Iron Bowl.

Weekly lines linked here. All-play point spread:  Alabama -10.5 at Auburn; 330pm Saturday on CBS. We’ve been looking forward to this for at least a month. Auburn-Alabama at Auburn. #1 vs. #4. Gus Malzahn’s offense vs. Kirby Smart’s defense. Or maybe more interesting, Ellis Johnson’s defense vs. the Saban/Nussmeier offense. (Actually that’s quite a bit less interesting but you never...

#CheddarBay Week 13: Brady +2.5 vs. Manning.

Links to this weeks lines here. All-play:  Broncos -2.5 at Pats; Sunday 8:30. . Alternate title: CB#13, The Salty Edition. If this feeling seems familiar that’s because it is.  I don’t mean in a landmark devastating “Drive/Fumble/RR88” way.  I mean in an “it happens three times a year to Cleveland fans, that moment when you snap back into the reality...

#CheddarBay Week 10: Ravens -2.5 at Browns.

. We’re coming back to Cleveland for this week’s all-play and it’s a worthy game.  The Browns actually, somehow, are playoff contenders if they beat Baltimore and Baltimore is beat-able.  They’re coming off a bye and have yet to score an impressive win.  Browns meanwhile start a QB better than Brandon Weeden (Are we not all amazed at how bad...

Disqus problems reported.

I’ve received at least a half dozen emails concerning problems with the new Disqus comment system; that means there’s a problem. 1.  My guess on cause: I upgraded WordPress to 3.7 (a new release) yesterday.  If the problems persist, I will explore whether I can revert. 2.  My troubleshooting: Led me to this page.  I’m working through disabling these themes and...

*****LATE LINE:  COLO ST -4 AT HAWAI’I***** If there’s one MACtion game deserving of your attention and of Cheddar’s All-Play designation, it’s this one.  Acknowledged by Hustle Belt as the MAC’s Best Rivalry, The Peace Pipe, oh sorry, The Battle of I-75 (are you kidding me?) goes back to 1919.  Toledo leads 18-15.  If that doesn’t sound like a lot...

Browns -4 over Bills, #CheddarBay essay.

***SUBMIT CHEDDAR PICKS WEDNESDAY’S POST PLEASE, THANKS.*** In our friendly Cheddar Bay Pickstravaganza, we (or at least I) tend to tie ourselves up in knots with research to validate the pick of the week.  In thinking about tonight’s Bills at Browns game, it occurred to me that there’s no team I have more research on than the Browns.  So if I’m thinking...
