2017 NCAA Football – Week 1 Betting Picks Against Spread

It’s finally time for some college football! It has been a long year and football is a good excuse to sit around all day, eat bad and partake in a few adult beverages.

This season kicks off in a big way with some huge games. You do have a healthy dose of enormous point spreads in ‘warm up’ games for big programs, but Alabama/Florida State and Florida/Michigan games are worth waiting out some blowouts this weekend.

Will any player jump out in front of the Heisman race like Lamar Jackson did in the first week last year?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 1 of the NCAA Football season (September 2nd, 2017). We also focus on small conference games and Thursday night games.

Are there any upsets you have your eye on this week?

2017 NBA Draft – Best Undrafted Players

The NBA Draft is only two rounds and consists of a total of 60 picks, so not every good college basketball player will hear his name called during the NBA Draft.

There are still some very good players left to either sign for an NBA team’s Summer League spot in hopes of catching on with a team. Most will probably end up in the Gatorade League (former D-League) or play overseas.

I’m sure people who love ‘their team’ always wonder why the star of their team didn’t even play a single minute in the NBA.

The Draft is a tricky thing. There are only two rounds, so a lot of teams teams draft for need. There are also teams who draft people overseas to stash for a couple years.

This is not the end of the road for these players. There are many undrafted players in the NBA, so a few of these guys will still make their dreams come true in the future.

2016-17 College Basketball – All-Name Team

tacko-fall-central-florida-americas-white-boy-all-name-team-2016-2017-college-basketballWe have many new entries this season, but I’m sad great names like Diamond Stone and Max Hooper 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.

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!

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 NCAA Football – Week 1 Betting Picks Against Spread

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!

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!

2014 March Madness: #6 North Carolina vs #11 Providence

James Michael McAdoo North Carolina Tar Heels 2014 NCAA TournamentWe are picking every NCAA Tournament game in an effort to help you fill out your bracket and win your office pool.

North Carolina has a laundry list of marquee wins this season. They didn’t let the P.J. Hariston drama distract the team. They were the best team in the country during a stretch in January and February.

The Providence Friars makes their first NCAA Tournament appearance in ten years. It has also been that long since they had back-to-back seasons finishing with a record over .500. Are they ready for the bright lights of the Big Dance?

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