2017 NFL Draft: Best Undrafted Players

2017-nfl-draft-best-undrafted-players-bug-howard-north-carolina-tar-heels-WRThe 2017 NFL Draft is officially complete and street sweepers are cleaning up the aftermath in Philly.

253 players were drafted over a three-day period. Some of those players will never play one down in a regular season NFL game. On the other side of the coin, many college players that went undrafted could end up having long careers in the NFL.

Kurt Warner went undrafted in the 1994 NFL Draft. He was a training camp invitee with the Green Bay Packers. He was released before the season and then found himself in the Arena Football League. He was successful there and then signed by the St. Louis Rams. Starting QB Trent Green suffered an ACL injury in the preseason and Warner was named the starter. He went on the win the Super Bowl that season. Warner will be inducted in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio late this Summer.

2017 College Football Signing Day: All-Name Team

We have made lists of great names in college basketball and football over the years. We even once made an all-name team list for the MLB Amateur Draft.

I was planning on doing the same for college football signing day, but nothing will ever top Kobe Buffalomeat…so he’s the only name on the list.

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 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.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 12 Betting Picks Against Spread

lsu-football-cheerleaders-2016-week-12-college-football-picks-against-the-spread-americas-white-boy-gambling-ncaaPicking 25 games every week has its benefits, but it has lead to a few too many weeks where I’m hovering .500. I don’t think I’m going back to picking 20 games, so don’t worry.

I went 12-13 in a difficult week with many top teams falling. I guess I should feel good hitting around .500 this week since I know some people who wiped out this week.

The College Football Playoff is currently a mess. There are a few too many scenarios in which teams that may not make their own conference championship games, could end up in the playoffs.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 19th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 11 Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-college-football-betting-picks-against-the-spread-week-11-washington-huskies-cheerleaders-ncaaI wrote last week’s college football betting picks still glowing from a Chicago Cubs World Series championship. I wrote these picks in an indifferent mood following an exhausting election cycle.

I finished 12-13 last week after betting against some large point spreads. I whiffed because many big spreads covered last week.

The best betting advice I can give someone at this point in the season is if you don’t have a good ‘feel’ for a team or have missed on a lot of bets on a certain team, abandon them. If you don’t, you’ll just be chasing your own tail trying to break even.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 12th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 10 Betting Picks Against Spread

usc-song-girl-americas-white-boy-week-10-college-football-picks-against-the-spread-gambling-picksI went 14-11 last week after missing a few ACC game picks. I still think the Clemson -4.5 pick against Florida State hit about 9 out of 10 times. Clemson defense let Florida State have some easy scores before halftime.

There are some big games on the schedule this week. This weekend’s slate would have been amazing if TCU and Oregon would have been as good as past year’s teams.

I stayed away from a lot of the SEC games last week, but felt there were some good plays this week. I still feel like Alabama is alone on the top and then every other team in the conference is at about the same talent level. It makes for picking games a bit of a struggle.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 5th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

The Ideal Bets For The Upcoming NFL and College Games

1955_notre-dame_vs_navyWhen an individual decides to compose a book with the theme of the incredible runs of success in each and every sport and they highlight great sporting events, I would expect them to include an aspect of my latest run with regard to sports wagering. Such great sporting events are like the UCLA men’s basketball team winning 7 consecutive titles in the early ‘70s and late ‘60s, the Undertaker emerging the inner in his first twenty one WrestleMania’s or even the then Dolphins finishing 17- 0 in 1972. These are what can be used to effectively reference the NFL lines.

For those who failed to notice and have just purchased a new boat or car, they must have knowledge of my incredible run versus the spread in the last three weeks of 16-2. This is inclusive of my hard earned perfection of 6-0 in the past week.
