2016 NFL Week 15 – Betting Picks Against Spread

funny america's white boy nfl picks 2016 week 15 against the spread bettingI finished 9-7 and felt pretty good about it. I had a weak outing the previous week, so it’s good to get a positive week in the books to bounce back.

It is going to be brutally cold in the Midwest this weekend, but thanks to domes, it really only affects the Green Bay/Chicago game.

I’m feeling pretty strong on a lot of the favorites this week. I’m not a huge fan of taking favorites this late in the year, but there were some favorable lines this week. There are just a few double-digit point spreads that give me pause, but they are against teams that have already packed it in for the season.

2016 NFL Week 13 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Matt-Barkley-Chicago-Bears-QB-Americas-White-Boy-week-13-gambling-picks-against-the-spreadI went undefeated on Thanksgiving against the spread, but after losing two games by a half-point and Denver blowing their lead Sunday night, I finished 9-7 last week. I could have had a very good week, but I’ll take the nine covers.

I can’t believe we could be seeing the ‘Matt Barkley Era’ begin in Chicago. He was able to move the ball and if it wasn’t for two redzone interceptions, they would have beaten Tennessee. I guess it’s pretty easy to look like a capable NFL quarterback when you’re following Jay Cutler. 

There isn’t much need to keep an eye on weather reports this weekend. All of the games are expected to be nice.

2016 NFL Week 12 – Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-NFL-betting-picks-against-the-spread-Week-12-Thanksgiving-bettingAfter a few weeks floating around .500, I finished 8-5-1 last week. I hit both Sunday Night and Monday Night Football games for only the third time this season. I was hoping to hit the Thursday night game too, but it ended in a push. 

I’ve historically done very well on Thanksgiving and this year’s games have pretty favorable lines. 

Injuries are mounting up and it’s extremely important to study injury reports at this point in the season.

2016 NFL Week 11 – Betting Picks Against Spread

dak-prescott-dallas-cowboys-week-11-nfl-betting-picks-against-the-spread-americas-white-boy-gamblingAfter hitting on almost 70% of my picks the last five weeks, I hit a wall last week. I finished 5-7-2 after whiffing on many of the early games. I was lucky to make up for it and hit on some late games last week.

The Dallas Cowboys are officially rookie QB Dak Prescott’s team. Often-injured QB Tony Romo said this week that Dak deserves to be the quarterback. I guess this is one of the reason many top quarterbacks often have extremely crappy backup quarterbacks. The Cowboys had guys like Kyle Orton and Brandon Weeden for a reason, to appease Romo’s ego.

2016 NFL Week 6 – Betting Picks Against Spread

andrew-luck-sacked-indianapolis-colts-chicago-bears-americas-white-boy-week-6-picks-against-the-spread-nflI ‘sacked’ Vegas last week and finished with a 12-1-1 record. It was my best finish of the year and hope to carry the momentum forward. I also hit on two nice moneylines last week. I would have had a blemish-free week if it wasn’t for the Eagles.

There are a few weird lines this weekend. Those questionable lines surround average teams being favored by six points or greater. It’s just odd seeing these kinds of odds this early in this year. A few lines appear more like Week 17 lines.

The Rams Should Start Jared Goff Now

Jared-Goff-Los-Angeles-Rams-NFL-Week-2The Los Angeles Rams looked horrible in their Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football.

The Rams started Case Keenum at quarterback, who looked overwhelmed for nearly the entire game. He threw 35 passes and only average 3.7 yards per attempt…he also threw two interceptions.

The Rams used the #1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on quarterback Jared Goff, but he was third on the depth chart on Monday night, behind former Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion.

Head coach Jeff Fisher announced that he isn’t sure if Goff will be the backup or third-string this Sunday against the Seahawks.

2016 NFL Week 1 – Betting Picks Against Spread

funny-2016-americas-white-boy-picks-sgainst-spread-nfl-gambling-kitty-cat-photoI can’t believe the wait is almost over! NFL season begins on Thursday and I will be glued to the couch all weekend watching football games. It will be glorious.

I’ve went 414-311-28 combined in the past three years picking NFL games against the spread. I’ve been posting my picks for the last six or sevenyears, but really only kept a running total in recent years.

Week 1 is a tricky betting week. You can watch all the preseason football games you want and never get a feel for what the team will look like in their first regular season game.

We pick every NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Running Backs

funny todd gurley los angeles rams nfl 2016 fantasy football rankings running backsIt’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks, it will officially be acceptable to wear hoodies in public. I love hoodies, but there’s something freakish about seeing a guy in July wearing one.

The running back position isn’t as deep as quarterback, but you should be able to find some good value late in the draft…but if you want a ‘workhorse’ running back, the pickings are slim.

Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles has been at the top of fantasy rankings the last handful of years. There are a few new names near the top this season, with one second-year running back sitting atop our rankings this season.

Here are our top 50 running backs for the 2016 fantasy football season.
