2017 March Madness: #8 Northwestern vs #9 Vanderbilt

2017 Bryce Drew Vanderbilt Commodores 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.

Northwestern was an answer to a trivia question for a long time. Well, they are no longer applicable since they will finally make their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament. It was the goal when they hired head coach Chris Collins in 2013.

There hasn’t been much buzz around Vanderbilt since everyone is talking about Northwestern’s first tourney bid. The Commodores have enough shooters on the team to make a run.

Can Vanderbilt upset Northwestern in Salt Lake City?

Who do you think will win? We help you fill out your bracket.

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 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.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 1st, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2015 NCAA Football – Week 6 Betting Picks Against Spread

Baylor weird funny america's white boy college football picks against the spread ncaa 2015I’m still hovering around .500 for the year. I once again moved some of my rankings around and think I’ve got a good handle of the lines. Teams are now in their conference schedule, so historical information comes into play more and more as the year moves along

I went 11-9 last week. I really thought Ole Miss and Georgia were the two best teams in the SEC, but they both fell last week. Also, Michigan and California keep surprising me (for good and bad reasons).

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 10th, 2015), and pick some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!

2013 NCAA Football – Week 7 Betting Picks Against Spread

1959_Texas_vs_Oklahoma_Red_River_RivalryI’m on a hot streak.

I went 12-5 last week with my picks, bringing my season total to 39-21-4 on the season.

Week 7 of the college football season (October 12th to be exact) isn’t filled with as many marquee games as last week, but there are plenty of rivalry games.

We now have a good idea on which teams are good, but trap games and upsets often happen in the middle of the season. Favorites are often overvalued, so be careful with your picks. Vegas knows who the best teams are too, so the value isn’t there anymore.

We answer those questions and pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday…we also sneak in a few Thursday night games in the MAC and American Athletic Conference

2013 NCAA Football – Week 6 Betting Picks Against Spread

Texas Tech Guns Up MascotThe fifth week of the college football season was very kind to me. I went 11-4 with my picks against the spread. I improved my overall record to 27-16-4 on the season.

Week six of the college football season (October 5th to be exact) is filled with a lot of fun games to watch. All the teams are in their conference schedule, with a few exceptions. We will start to see which teams are contenders and which teams clearly benefited from a weak non-conference schedule.

There are some huge Big Ten and Big 12 games on Saturday. You will know a lot more about Northwestern and Texas Tech after 10/5/13.

We answer those questions and pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday…we also sneak in a few smaller games in the MAC and Mountain West conferences.

2012 Big Ten Preview: Northwestern Wildcats

Our college football analyst Joe Pasquali is winding down his Big Ten team previews with the Northwestern Wildcats. Can they squeak out a few non-conference wins and shock the world?

Last year Northwestern spent most of the season duct taping and trying to keep Dan Persa on the field, because when he was Northwestern was a decent football team. Injuries took their toll and Pat Fitzgerald saw his Wildcats fall to 6-7 after a 9 win season. Northwestern has lost nine bowl games in a row, but I don’t see them losing one this year. Because they won’t be going to one. Their out of conference schedule is one of the toughest in the Big Ten, with games against Vanderbilt, Boston College, and Syracuse. Yes, none of those are juggernauts, but most Big Ten teams are playing cupcakes in the non-con. (See Indiana). Continue reading
