2017 VJ Beachem Notre Dame Fighting Irish March Madness NCAA TournamentWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Notre Dame had a successful run in the ACC Tournament and probably should have received a #4 seed in the tourney. They are a dangerous #5 seed this year.

Princeton won the first-ever Ivy League conference tournament and went undefeated in conference play.

Ivy League teams are always trendy picks to upset teams in the first round. Many have had past success doing just that. The players go to Ivy League teams for a reason, they play smart basketball.

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 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.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 7 Betting Picks Against Spread

unc-cheerleader-rachelle09I went 12-11-2 after some big upsets made for a tense afternoon. I was pretty happy to just end up around .500 after some of my bad beats.

I don’t expect weather to be an issue this weekend. Hurricane Matthew screwed up a few games last week and outright cancelled LSU/Florida.

There are a few key games in the Big Ten and SEC, but it’s a pretty average slate of games this weekend. There are a lot of top conference teams playing conference basement dwellers. It always seems like crazy things happen when there’s a bunch of “ho-hum” games.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 15th, 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.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 3 Betting Picks Against Spread

alabama-crimson-tide-college-football-point-spread-picks-against-the-spread-week-3-americas-white-boy-cheerleaderI had a very average week and finished 13-12. I don’t feel too bad about it, but wished the outcome was better. I made educated picks and if two or three of them went the other way, I’d feel pretty darn great.

Week 2 was full of large point spreads and honestly it was about 50/50 on the favorites covering in those games. I don’t think it will mess with point spreads too much going forward, but maybe Georgia should get knocked a few points for keeping the Nicholls State game close.

2016 College Football: All-Name Team

america's white boy funny all-name team college football ncaa 2016 lion kingWhat makes a great college football name?

A good litmus test is 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 2016-17 college football All-Name team.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 1 Betting Picks Against Spread

Josh Rosen hot UCLA cheerleaders america's white boy week 1 college football betting picks against the spread gambling ncaaWho else is ready for some college football?!

We have hit on nearly 60% of games we’ve picked since I started a running total back in 2013. I hope to stay hot this season.

Week 1 is where knowledge, and a little luck, can make or break you. There will be a few big upsets and a marquee player or two will fall to injury. You just want to survive Week 1 in order to get a lot of information for Week 2, where I have historically found value.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 3rd, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We picked five extra games this week since there isn’t NFL games this weekend. Enjoy!
