2017 NCAA Football – Week 2 Betting Picks Against Spread

I went 14-10-1 last week against the spread. Some of my late Saturday afternoon picks were close, but didn’t fall in my favor. I did hit on most of the marquee games. I fell into a trap of picking a few large spreads against mid-major teams. Big programs often don’t take those games very serious, thus falling short of the large point spread.

We have already lost a few marquee players for long periods of time. Make sure you keep an eye on the injury reports cause a few backup quarterbacks are playing this weekend.

A couple Heisman candidates stumbled in Week 1. Will USC QB Sam Darnold right the ship? Will Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield become the Heisman favorite with an elite performance against Ohio State?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 2 of the NCAA Football season (September 9th, 2017). We also focus on small conference games and Thursday night games.

2017 NBA Draft – Best Undrafted Players

The NBA Draft is only two rounds and consists of a total of 60 picks, so not every good college basketball player will hear his name called during the NBA Draft.

There are still some very good players left to either sign for an NBA team’s Summer League spot in hopes of catching on with a team. Most will probably end up in the Gatorade League (former D-League) or play overseas.

I’m sure people who love ‘their team’ always wonder why the star of their team didn’t even play a single minute in the NBA.

The Draft is a tricky thing. There are only two rounds, so a lot of teams teams draft for need. There are also teams who draft people overseas to stash for a couple years.

This is not the end of the road for these players. There are many undrafted players in the NBA, so a few of these guys will still make their dreams come true in the future.

IPFW Upsets #3 Indiana in Overtime

Indiana-IPFW-Basketball upset ncaa collegeThe Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons jumped into Division-I during the 2001-02 season, a year before I attended the school. The school hasn’t beaten a ranked team in their history and have yet to make an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Actually, IPFW is best known for their volleyball program (yes, those exist).

IPFW upset the #3 ranked Indiana Hoosiers tonight in overtime, 71-68.

No one thought IPFW would contend against the Indiana Hoosiers when they were set to play each other at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. It wasn’t a traditional road game for the Hoosiers since the crowd was filled with cream and crimson clad fans.

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 6 Betting Picks Against Spread

oklahoma-sooners-college-hot-sexy-cheerleaders-footballI went 12-12-1 after my bonus five picks decided to turn against me. I did have a few moneyline successes and hit on last week’s big game at Clemson.

This weekend has a full slate of great college football games. There are some games this weekend with massive implications. Some are rivalry games like Oklahoma vs Texas and Miami vs Florida State…and others are just good conference games that could factor into conference titles like Tennessee vs Texas A&M.

Could Charlie Strong’s job be on the line when Texas faces Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 8th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 2 Betting Picks Against Spread

hot-sexy-tennessee-volunteers-vols-cheerleader-americas-white-boy-picks-against-the-spread-2016-week-2-gamblingI went 13-11-1 last week with a few bad beats. I can’t beat myself up about it since Week 1 is always loaded with landmines of risk. I picked some games I should have stayed away from (Houston vs Oklahoma) and didn’t expect such poor outings from Tennessee and UCLA.

As I said before, Week 1 is full of risk, but the following week is loaded with value. You have to take what you learned in Week 1 and use it for your advantage. At the same time, there are times that you kind of have to go against all your information since betting lines are often swayed a little too much if a team outperforms preseason expectations or is underwhelming in Week 1.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 10th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also picked five extra games as a bonus.

2015 NCAA Football – Week 13 Betting Picks Against Spread

michigan state kicker ohio state america's white boy college football picks against the spread 2015One day, I hope to be as happy as Michigan State’s kicker was last week. He went complete ‘Oprah audience member winning a free car’ crazy.

I went 11-9 against the spread last week. Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma and Iowa are now sitting on top of the College Football Playoff rankings this week. Michigan State and Notre Dame are currently the first two teams left out of the playoff.

I wanted to pick Baylor/TCU and Penn State/Michigan State games, but as of this writing, those lines are currently off the board. I wanted to get this week’s lines out as early as possible due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 28th, 2015), and pick some games earlier in the week. Enjoy!
