Giving Away Money: Vegas drops rat poison in Dabo’s Ostarine

For about a century, there were three longstanding truisms about Alabama football: Alabama never had a Heisman winner, Alabama never won a national title with a Republican in the White House, and Alabama has never won a national title when being tabbed the No. 1 team in the nation.

Nick Saban has upended the apple cart as to the first two of these, but the latter is still true: Alabama has never won a national title when being the nation’s preseason top dog. This season, Alabama is firmly in second place behind Clemson...even in Vegas.

And that’s just how we like it.

Yesterday, some of the offshore books began dropping preseason odds to win the College Football Playoff Championship, and, if you want to make some decent money, you could do a whole lot worse than laying some early scratch on the Tide:

Clemson 2-1

Bama 5-2

Georgia 7-1

OhioSt 10-1

Mich, OU 14-1

LSU, Texas 25-1

ND, Wash 30-1

UF, Oregon, Neb, A&M 40-1

Auburn 60-1

Wisconsin 80-1

FSU, Iowa, Miami, MissSt, PennSt, USC, Utah, WashSt 100-1

MichSt, OkSt, TCU, VT 200-1

Right off the bat there are some sucker bets in here: Nebraska, Oregon (40/1) and Auburn (60/1) are just throwing away money. Alabama at 5/2 is very favorable, considering the Tide was at even money at its longest odds last season. As for decent value? Oklahoma at 14/1 might be too low, honestly — if the Sooners can duck a super-physical team in the playoffs, who knows what would happen in a final showdown for the title. Ditto Georgia: The Bulldogs have some work to do retooling the passing game, but the defense should be oustanding and the running game is nasty.

Preseason sweetheart Texas as 7/1? Nah, skip that. It’s been five years now and Tom Herman still hasn’t shown that he can consistently win games. For every huge win over OU or Georgia, there are just as many losses to mediocre opponents and playing down to the competition. The Big 12 will be down-ish this season, so they’re worth taking for the conference title. But the natty? Show me the money first, Tom.

As for Clemson? Enjoy that rat poison for the whole summer, Uncle Clem. It’s pretty cool reading about how good your team is for nine months straight, while the media ignores serious deficiencies in your back-end and losing a ton of NFL defensive linemen. Don’t believe it? Ask me about 2017 and 2019.

Who is too high? Too low?

所以一般早期的闭经都是有一定原因造成。肝肾亏虚,脾胃虚弱丰胸产品,气滞血瘀等造成。所以要针对各自的病症,做好辩证,然后针对治疗就可以很好的调理了酒酿蛋丰胸产品。肝肾亏虚的可以一般调补肝肾为主,可以吃比较大补鹿茸,女贞子等为主滋阴补肾为主的食物。这样能补肾恢复子宫的气血丰胸方法,充盈气血。自然就可以很好的恢复身体的机制。延长月经的周期了丰胸最快方法
