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!

‘America’s White Boy’ 2017 NBA Mock Draft

Markelle Fultz Lonzo Ball NBA Mock Draft 2017Just like we did for the NFL Draft, we are here to release our 2017 NBA Mock Draft.

A lot can change before June 22nd. Many expect the Celtics and Lakers to get plenty of calls until then. The biggest possible trade that could happen could be the Pacers trading Paul George to the Celtics for a large package of prospects and the #1 overall pick. Will it happen? I’d say there’s only about a 20% chance right now.

Here is the ‘America’s White Boy’ 2017 NBA Mock Draft.

1. Boston Celtics – Markelle Fultz – PG – Washington Huskies – Fultz is the consensus best player in the draft. Even though Washington was a bad team last year, it should bring up too many red flags. In baseball, they call a prospect that can do everything a ‘five-tool player’…and Fultz is the equivalent in basketball. He has hops, he can shoot, he is very good defensively and has the size for his position. It will be interesting to see how he will play with Isaiah Thomas, but it can be done. This pick is very desirable, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Boston gets a mother lode for it if they trade it.

UCLA Basketball Recruit Scores 92 in High School Game

LaMelo Ball UCLA Bruins basketball sportsLaMelo Bell, a sophomore at Chino Hills HS (California), put up 92 points in a regulation high school basketball game tonight. His older brother LiAngelo, who is a senior, sat on the bench while resting up before the playoffs start. Both are expected to eventually take the same path as their older brother Lonzo, who is currently lighting up college basketball at UCLA.

LaMelo took 61 shots tonight and was a beast close to the rim. He did hit seven three-pointers, but the bulk of his points came close in Chino Hills’ uptempo, fast break offense.

Chino Hills had a 60-game winning streak before losing to powerhouse Oak Hill. Their next game following the loss was against Los Osos tonight, so Ball took his anger out on them and won the game 146-123.

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!

Pac 12 Basketball: Who will Win the Regular Season Crown?

Jakob Poeltl Utah Utes Pac 12 college basketballPac 12 basketball championship is always a competitive with many teams going for nothing less than the title. We all know that this season is definitely no exception after the preparation the teams have undergone. Visit online oddsmakers like MyBookie.lv to find odds on which team is likely to win the season’s crown of Pac 12 Basketball Tournament.

After the slate of games on Saturday, both Oregon and Arizona are currently ranked at the top position of conference standings with 10-4. Nevertheless, Utah is also down on their necks at a 9-5 with a game in hand against USC scheduled on Sunday afternoon, whereas Cal and USC follow Utah at 8-5. This would make it a tight championship to predict.

For many years, Pac 12 has been more a five-team race in between the schools, but odds thus boiling down to either Oregon or Arizona. Unluckily, these two teams will not face-off anymore in this year’s regular season. Arizona was beaten by Oregon in their single match-up earlier in Arizona, where they won by 83-75

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.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 28th, 2015), and pick some games earlier in the week. Enjoy!

2015-16 College Basketball – All-Name Team

ucf tacko fall all-name team central florida college basketballWe have many new entries this season, but I’m sad great names like McWisdon Badejo and Nimrod Hilliard have graduated. We have plenty of fun names this year.

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. Enjoy!
