2017 NCAA Football – Week 4 Betting Picks Against Spread

I went 15-10 last week against the spread. I was skating around the point spreads all over the place. I won a few games by a point or two and also lost them by small margins. Vegas really hit the nail on the head on quite a few games last week.

Now that it is in the fourth week of college football, do you think we know these teams? No, it all changes this week with most of the games being conference games.

A new wrinkle starts to unfold when teams begin to face familiar opponents. We have past data, but past history only goes so far in college football since there is a fast turnover rate.

How will USC QB Sam Darnold fare against Cal’s upgraded defense?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 4 of the NCAA Football season (September 23th, 2017). We also focus on small conference games…our bread and butter!

2017 NCAA Football – Week 3 Betting Picks Against Spread

I went 17-6-2 last week against the spread. I felt pretty good about my picks going into the weekend and even hit on some I waited on and didn’t add to my picks last week. A few lines moved in the right direction and I put a few jellybeans on them last minute on Saturday.

I usually do well during Week 2 of the college football season. You have to know when to pivot away from a team or to keep riding a team that lost in Week 1.

I believe Week 3 is one of the most difficult betting weeks. You have two weeks of data, but half of that data is bad data. You can’t really use the data from a game against Gardner-Webb the same as data against other FBS teams. Since a lot of teams have played at least one ‘gimme game’, there’s a lot of bad information out there that you should just completely ignore. 

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 3 of the NCAA Football season (September 16th, 2017). We also focus on small conference games…our bread and butter!

2017 March Madness: #4 Purdue vs #13 Vermont

2017 Caleb Swanigan Purdue Boilermakers 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.

Purdue were one of the preseason favorites to win the Big Ten this season. They accomplished that goal, but fell short in the conference tournament. I thought they deserved a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Vermont went undefeated in the America East conference. Head coach John Becker will be getting a lot of phone calls this offseason and will have a shot to lead a bigger program.

Can Vermont upset Purdue in Milwaukee?

The Big Ten could make some noise in the NCAA Tournament this season. All the top teams in the conference have gone on hot streaks at some point during the season. Purdue is currently in the middle of one.

The Sun Belt is a perennial one-bid conference in the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas-Little Rock hopes to duplicate what Georgia State did in the tournament last season…survive and advance.

2015 March Madness: #8 Cincinnati vs #9 Purdue

2015 NCAA Tournament picks Cincinnati Bearcats Purdue Boilermakers hot sexy cheerleader march madnessThis is the first of many NCAA Tournament games we are picking to help you fill out your bracket.

The Big Ten was the arguably the strongest conference from top to bottom in the country. They have seven teams representing them in the 2015 NCAA Tournament. Purdue was a bubble team and I strongly believe they deserved a spot in the Big Dance.

The American Athletic Conference wasn’t as strong, but Cincinnati made it through the season with a lot of adversity.

Can Cincinnati score enough points to win games in the NCAA Tournament?

How will Purdue handle Cincinnati’s elite perimeter defense?

2014-15 College Basketball – All-Name Team

Wesley Person Jr NBA All Name Team College BasketballWe have many new entries this season, but I’m sad great names like God’sgift Achiuwa have graduated. We do have plenty of fun names to him.

We picked through every Division-I college basketball roster and a few smaller schools for our list. This year’s class is solid and better than last year’s All-Name Team. We went through a rebuilding year and we are a better team.

My name is Bobby Roberts, so I am often jealous of people with unique names. The most unique thing about my name is that I was not born ‘Robert Roberts’, Bobby is my given name. I don’t know too many grown men named Bobby.

This list consists of names that we wished he had and ones we find humorous. We even included some famous kids of former NBA players.

2014 College Football: All-Name Team

Barry Sanders Jr Stanford Cardinal 2014 College Football All-Name TeamThe college football season kicks off tonight…but it doesn’t officially start until we post our yearly all-name team.

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 2014-15 college football All-Name team.

2014 National Signing Day: All-Name Team

Greg-Gooch-Funny-Name-Signing-DayFor those who love high school and college football, National Signing Day is a lot of fun. It’s the one day of the year in which a university’s athletic department’s fax machine is the most important piece of equipment on campus.

This is the day when high school seniors can fax in their letter of intent to the college they wish to play football. You need to be offered a scholarship before you fax a letter of intent…sorry, guys.

I’ve researched all the top players in the 2014 senior class and picked out some of the best names and which school they will be playing for later this year.

My name is Bobby Roberts. I often get asked if my name is Robert Roberts, but no, it says ‘Bobby’ on my birth certificate. My name will forever sound like I’m eight years old…so different names always interest me. I think you will enjoy this list.
