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 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?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 8th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

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.

2015 NCAA Football – Week 4 Betting Picks Against Spread

americas white boy college ncaa picks against the spread 2015 september week 4 funny fanMany of the top teams in the nation didn’t perform up to expectations last week. I hate betting on large spreads, especially when a ranked team faces a small school. So many things have to go right for them to cover, but also small schools sometime just show up to cash a check. It’s a coin flip.

I went 10-10 last week. I whiffed on a few that lost badly, but still feel good about those picks. Sometimes you can still make a ‘smart pick’ and have it lose. It’s all part of gambling. The same system or strategy will win games later on.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 26th, 2015), and pick some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!

2015 March Madness: #11 Seed Play-In Game – BYU vs Ole Miss

2015 NCAA Tournament BYU Cougars Ole Miss Rebels Tyler Haws March Madness picks bracketThis is the final play-in game we will preview for the 2015 NCAA Tournament. BYU will have their hands full with Ole Miss.

BYU squeaked into the Big Dance and we are all better for it. BYU brings the kind of offense that can bring mayhem into a game. Their defense tends to be more swiss cheese-like, but let’s just focus on the offense right now.

Ole Miss isn’t your ordinary play-in game team either. They probably would have been a much higher seed if not for the last three weeks of the season. Their best ‘marquee win’ wasn’t even a win. They forced Kentucky into overtime back in January. That’s better than most real marquee wins this season.

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

2014 March Madness: #7 Oregon vs #10 BYU

Tyler Haws BYU Cougars 2014 NCAA TournamentWe are picking every NCAA Tournament game in an effort to help you fill out your bracket and win your office pool.

Oregon had a rocky start to the Pac 12 portion of their schedule. They had some bad losses, but redeemed themselves with wins at UCLA and against Arizona.

BYU has third highest-scoring offense in college basketball. Their non-conference schedule went pretty rough, but settled down once they starting playing West Coast Conference games. Many ‘bracketologists’ had them as one of the last four teams to get in. As a #10 seed that clearly was not the case.

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