2017 College Football: All-Name Team

What 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. It also works if a name sounds like a verb, phrase, a certain body part or just a bad ass football name that makes them sound tough.

We went through every team in the top two divisions in the NCAA. We went through ever single name and picked out the ones that were funny and some 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 (it’s not).

Here is the 2017-18 college football All-Name team.

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?

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 4 Betting Picks Against Spread

arizona-state-cheerleaders-2016-week-4-ncaa-football-picks-against-the-spread-college-americas-white-boy-betting-sun-devilsI had my first solid week of the year after going 16-9 last week. I felt like I had a solid grasp on the outcomes and would have had a better week if not for a couple fluke covers…but there’s nothing you can do about those.

I’m glad that there aren’t as many 30+ point spreads this week. Teams are starting to get into the meat of their schedules and conference games will be in full force by next week. I hate having to bet on huge spreads, since it just adds a lot more to factor in when picking games.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 24th, 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.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 17th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also picked five extra games as a bonus.

2015 NCAA Football – Week 14 Betting Picks Against Spread

derrick henry alabama crimson tide sec championship game ncaa college football picks against the spread 2015 america's white boyThis week isn’t as stocked with games, since all the marquee games are conference championship games. We ended up picking every single college football game against the spread.

I went 10-9-1 against the spread last week. Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma and Iowa still sit on top of the College Football Playoff rankings. Michigan State will play in the CFP with a win over Iowa on Saturday. Also, Ohio State and Stanford could sneak in if Florida and/or North Carolina throw a wrench into machine.

The Heisman trophy front-runner Alabama RB Derrick Henry could lock up the trophy with another strong performance.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (December 5th, 2015), and pick some games earlier in the week. Enjoy!

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.
