Re: THE EARLY LINE URI VS VCU*

I don't know about Pittsburgh, but it is a distinct possibility of the Rams show me
something and win out from here. I will look for you at the beer garden before the game
but outside the line because I'm not a beer drinker.

THE EARLY LINE URI VS VCU*

The line opened at URI - 1 1/2 and is now at URI - 2 1/2 . Rams are due for a good
home game performance , so I am going to go out on a limb again and predict that they
cover even if it goes up to 3. Making the trip up from NJ in the wee hours again in the
morning to watch a big win.
