2017 NCAA Football – Week 12 Betting Picks Against Spread

I finished 19-10-1 last week. My strategy of staying away from Pac 12 games paid off. I did end up picking one…and lost. I don’t know what it is about that conference, but I have little confidence in my handicapping ability in the Pac 12 this season. I’ve done very well with the conference in the past, but I (sort of) know when to throw in the towel. I STILL ended up picking a Pac 12 game again this week…I just couldn’t help myself.

Last week’s experiment of picking 30 games worked in my favor. I picked an additional five games this week as well. It made my attempt at avoiding the Pac 12 rather difficult.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 30 college football games against the spread in Week 12 of the NCAA Football season (November 18th, 2017). We also pick some smaller conference games.

2017 NCAA Football – Week 10 Betting Picks Against Spread

I hit the most popular college football games, but missed on a lot of under-the-radar games. I’m still well above .500 on the season, but really struggled picking the early games last Saturday. 

The big game against Ohio State and Penn State really paid off last week. It was a fun watch and came down to the final minute of the game. This week’s big game is Oklahoma at Oklahoma State. Can the Cowboys cover the game at home?

Iowa State, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame have been awesome against the spread this season. Can all three cover this weekend?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 10 of the NCAA Football season (November 4th, 2017). We also pick some smaller conference games.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 8 Betting Picks Against Spread

oklahoma-cheerleaders-americas-white-boy-picks-against-the-spread-2016-week-8-college-footballI went 15-9-1 last week and felt pretty good about a few of my moneyline suggestions as well.

I don’t expect weather to be an issue this weekend. It might be the first official ‘Fall Weather’ football game for most of the Midwest though. I don’t think that really bothers anyone at all.

I’m really looking forward to the Texas A&M/Alabama game this weekend. There are some dominoes that need to fall during the season and one will fall in this battle between unbeaten teams.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 22nd, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.

2016 March Madness: #7 Dayton vs #10 Syracuse

charles cooke dayton flyers 2016 ncaa tournament syracuse orangeWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat ‘Mildred from warehouse’ in your office pool this year.

The Atlantic 10 was the best mid-major conference in college basketball this season. There were at least five teams at the end of the season that could have won the conference championship.

The ACC has some of the best teams in the nation. A few are expected to go deep into the tourney. Syracuse wasn’t consistent and stagger into the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Some even believe Syracuse shouldn’t have gotten an at-large bid this year.

Can Dayton have a long run in the tourney?

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

2014 March Madness: #3 Syracuse vs #14 Western Michigan

Jim Boeheim Syracuse Orange Funny 2014 NCAA TournamentWe are picking every NCAA Tournament game in an effort to help you fill out your bracket and win your office pool.

Syracuse was the best team in the nation for most of the season. After their overtime loss to Boston College, they just fell off a cliff. C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis haven’t played well and head coach Jim Boeheim made an ass out of himself in the Duke game.

Western Michigan won the MAC tournament to earn an automatic bid. They haven’t been tested all season and benefited from a cake schedule.

Which Syracuse squad will show up in the first round, the team that won its first 25 games or the the team that lost to 8-24 Georgia Tech?

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

Sweetbob’s Saturday Betting Bonanza

Joe Biden Syracuse Orange Duke Blue Devils College Basketball February 2014I miss college football, so on Saturdays, I find myself watching everything. I use the word ‘everything’ because I seriously watch any sport that pops up on my DirecTV. At the moment, that means a lot of the Winter Olympics.

As I’m in the vortex of random sports, I find myself doing my fair share of betting. I had a great NFL and college football season and historically, I’m even better at college basketball.

This Saturday is filled with more than luge and figure skating. You have some great college basketball matchups (Syracuse at Duke) and UFC 170.

I pick February 22nd college basketball games against the spread and also pick the winners of tonight’s UFC 170. Will Ronda Rousey defend her title?
