2016 NFL Week 14 – Betting Picks Against Spread

andrew-luck-americas-white-boy-week-14-nfl-picks-against-the-spreadYour boy had a rough week. I finished 6-9 and really whiffed on some of the early games. I’d like to thank the Colts for making sure I didn’t end up with ten losses last week.

I’m going to write it off as just having a bad week. I think many of the teams will bounce back this week. Vegas catches up with teams this time of the year, especially when teams are playing in-division rivals for the second time. 

I’ll rolling the dice with quite a few road teams this week. I think there are a lot of 50/50 games that could come down to the last few plays, so that explains why there are so many tight points spreads. Let’s hope for some covers this weekend.

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season.

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: December 2016

hipster-santa-americas-white-boy-hipster-music-playlist-december-2016-funny-old-manIt’s almost time for Hipster Santa to ride his vintage Schwinn around the world to deliver record players and typewriters to all the good boys and girls.

December’s playlist is filled with new songs from all across the indie music genre. A few tracks even have an awesome music video. I was surprised to see Susan Sarandon appear in Justice’s new video for “Fire.”

I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter.

Make sure to go over to our Spotify playlist where we add every track each month. There’s something for everyone there.

11 Mind-Blowing Facts about Wrestling

e62052d940257ce3c1662677f25d198eWorld Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is probably the most popular form of wrestling known across the world. Its popularity has been sustained for the last three decades without any threat. It may lead to some thinking that they know everything there is to learn about WWE, and it is certainly not the case. Here are the top 11 mind-boggling facts about wrestling.

11. There are big professional wrestling promotions in countries other than the US

Contrary to popular opinion, even though WWE is the most marketed wrestling company, UK also boasts tens of promotions and championships. Wrestling is more than just a sport.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 14 Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-ncaa-college-football-week-14-penn-state-nittany-lions-cheerleaders-picks-gamblingI went 14-11 with my picks last week. It was the last week in which they are at least 25 games, so I went ahead and picked every single college football game against the spread this weekend.

The College Football Playoff could be a mess this season. There will be a team or two that will be left out that will have a legitimate argument for their inclusion. The Ohio State loss to Penn State is the reason for the extra drama this weekend.

I am really looking forward to watching all the conference championship games this weekend. I think they will all be fun to watch, except for the Alabama/Florida game, which could be a blood bath.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick every college football game against the spread this weekend.

2016 NFL Week 13 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Matt-Barkley-Chicago-Bears-QB-Americas-White-Boy-week-13-gambling-picks-against-the-spreadI went undefeated on Thanksgiving against the spread, but after losing two games by a half-point and Denver blowing their lead Sunday night, I finished 9-7 last week. I could have had a very good week, but I’ll take the nine covers.

I can’t believe we could be seeing the ‘Matt Barkley Era’ begin in Chicago. He was able to move the ball and if it wasn’t for two redzone interceptions, they would have beaten Tennessee. I guess it’s pretty easy to look like a capable NFL quarterback when you’re following Jay Cutler. 

There isn’t much need to keep an eye on weather reports this weekend. All of the games are expected to be nice.

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 13 of the 2016 NFL season.

10 Ways to Instantly Improve the WWE

triple-h-family-3The WWE have lost nearly half of their audience on RAW over the last few years and WWE Network subscribers have hit a plateau, even after giving away free programming month after month.

The WWE is a public company and even if they want to live in a kayfabe world of record profits, it’s not what is really happening. The brand split increased the ratings for Smackdown Live, but Smackdown house show attendance is almost at record lows. The roster is so thin right now that it is really hard to keep booking interesting matches.

Here are ten ways the WWE could improve their product right now.

Sports Crush: Michelle Waterson

michellewaterson-reebok-ufc-mmaWe’ve written a handful of ‘Sports Crush’ posts since we launched ‘America’s White Boy.’ We have spotlighted a few UFC women fighters (Paige VanZant, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate). The response has been great, so we decided to profile another talented female fighter who is currently getting started in the UFC, ‘The Karate Hottie’ Michelle Waterson.

Waterson is the former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion and is currently fighting in the UFC Strawweight division. She has a record of 13-4 and comes from a karate background.

Waterson made her UFC debut on July 12th, 2015 after submitting Angela Magana via rear-naked choke. Her next fight is December 17th, when she faces our former ‘Sports Crush’, Paige VanZant.

See why we are crushing on UFC fighter Michelle Waterson.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 13 Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-college-football-betting-picks-against-the-spread-week-13-ohio-state-buckeyes-cheerleaders-ncaaI started to second-guess my decision to increase my picks to 25 games, but I went 19-6 last week. The weather helped my picks since many games in the Midwest had gusting wind.

This is a huge rivalry week across the country. There are rivalry games like Michigan/Ohio State and Washington/Washington State that will factor in who will appear in conference championship games. The OSU/Michigan game will help weed out the logjam at the top in the College Football Playoff rankings.

This week’s schedule has a lot of large point spreads, but I still see value across the board.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 26th, 2016) and a few Friday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.
