2017 Davon Reed Miami Hurricanes NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Can Miami hold off Michigan State in the first round?

2016 NCAA Football – Week 9 Betting Picks Against Spread

west-virginia-cheerleaderI went 15-9-1 again last week. I struggled with some of the marquee games, but was near-perfect picking smaller conference games.

SEC game outcome are going to start to get weird. Upsets start to happen at this point ever season. They start devouring each other to make way for ACC and Big Ten teams to jump up in the polls.

I stayed away from a lot of the SEC games this weekend. I feel like the conference is basically ‘Alabama’ and then ‘everyone else.’ Teams like Texas A&M, Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, etc are just going to feed on each other.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 29th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 8 Betting Picks Against Spread

oklahoma-cheerleaders-americas-white-boy-picks-against-the-spread-2016-week-8-college-footballI went 15-9-1 last week and felt pretty good about a few of my moneyline suggestions as well.

I don’t expect weather to be an issue this weekend. It might be the first official ‘Fall Weather’ football game for most of the Midwest though. I don’t think that really bothers anyone at all.

I’m really looking forward to the Texas A&M/Alabama game this weekend. There are some dominoes that need to fall during the season and one will fall in this battle between unbeaten teams.

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?

2016 NCAA Football – Week 5 Betting Picks Against Spread

clemson-cheerleader-americas-white-boy-college-football-ncaa-betting-picks-against-the-spread-2016I thought I went 16-9 for the week once again, but I added everything up again and I missed a game by a half-point, so a 15-10 record still isn’t too shabby.

We are at the point where every team is in their conference schedule, which is great. There’s a lot more information and history between teams. It also makes the betting lines more tight since Vegas has the same information as the bettor.

There’s a huge game between Louisville and Clemson this weekend. It may impact the championship race, since both teams are in the ACC. The conference is great, but I doubt they will get two teams in the playoffs.

2015 College Football: All-Name Team

Nick Chubb America's White Boy All-Name Team 2015 Georgia BulldogsWhat makes a great college football name?

If it works as a potential pro wrestling name, it works in college football.

We went through all the teams in the top two divisions in the NCAA. We read every name and picked out the ones that were funny and names we just wish we had.

My name is Bobby Roberts, so of all the people who can write a post poking fun at names, it’s me. I’m always asked if my real name is Robert Roberts (it’s not) or if my name is fake.

Here is the 2015-16 college football All-Name team.

2015 March Madness: Which Bubble Teams Didn’t Get In?

sad connecicut huskies march madness ncaa tournament bubble teamsThere are 351 Division-I teams in college basketball eligible for the postseason 2015 NCAA Tournament. Obviously, not every team can get an invite.

These teams were all on the bubble, but failed to make it into the field of 68.

There were some big upsets in conference tournaments and they took spots away from teams that deserved a nod. I was surprised a few times during the Selection Show, but I feel good about the field overall.

Did Indiana and Purdue do enough to get into the Big Dance?

Here is a list of bubble teams which had their bubble burst.

2013 NCAA Football – Week 11 Betting Picks Against Spread

Oregon-Ducks-Cheerleaders-2013Thanks to Michigan, Miami and Texas Tech, I had a .500 week. I’m still 82-54-7 on the season, which is much better than many of my sports betting friends.

I like a lot of favorites in Week 11 of the 2013 college football season (November 9th to be exact). I usually find value in underdogs at this point in the season, but the slate of games this weekend doesn’t fair well for those teams.

When making a bet at this point in the season, look to see if any teams played a common opponent. Also, keep an eye on weather reports. The temps are falling across the Midwest, so that could be a factor when a warm-weather team travels.

We pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday, plus a few games in the MAC and American Athletic Conference as always…we also sneak in TWO Thursday night games . Enjoy!
