2017 Nigel Hayes Wisconsin Badgers Virginia Tech Hokies NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

The ACC was stacked this year. If a team from that conference made it to the Big Dance, they are battle-tested. There was no easy path through the ACC this season. Virginia Tech will come into this game prepared.

The Big Ten is known for defense and methodical offenses. I think you will see both from Wisconsin in this tournament.

Can Virginia Tech knock off Wisconsin in the first round?

Can Ohio State Really Make the College Football Playoff?

ohio-state-buckeyes-college-football-playoff-2016-2017-oddsThe Ohio State Buckeyes ended up being the #2 ranked team in the College Football Playoff this week. They benefited from three of the top four teams losing last week.

If history has any relevance here, Ohio State’s loss to Penn State worked in their favor since the earlier a team loses, the less affect it has on the final college football playoff rankings. Although in Ohio State’s case, that loss could have much more of an impact since it could cost them an appearance in the Big Ten Championship game.

There’s still a lot of football left to play, but Ohio State does not control its own destiny. Yes, if they beat Michigan in the final week of their regular season, it would almost cement their spot in the College Football Playoff, but as we’ve seen before, a team that leaves their fate in the hands of a committee that selects teams, can be burned.

2015 NCAA Football – Week 5 Betting Picks Against Spread

funny college football fan ncaa america's white boy week 4 2015 picks against the spreadI’ve been hovering around .500 so far this year. I have moved some of my rankings around and hope to have a big week. Most teams are now into their conference schedule, so there will be less spreads of 30+ and we have some historical information to help our picks.

I went 9-10-1 last week. I whiffed on BYU/Michigan and a couple others. I felt some of the picks were ‘smart’, but they did not hit. A few balls fell in the other direction in those games.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (October 3rd, 2015), and pick some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!

2014-15 NCAA Football – Bowl Games – Betting Picks Against Spread

I had a pretty decent year picking college football games against the spread. My record is now 148-118-4 on the season.

When betting on bowl games, make sure to Google if the team still has their head coach. Not many coaching changes have happened, but Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin and a few others, won’t have their coach for the bowl.

We were 134-79-8 against the spread betting on college football games for the 2013-14 season. We hope to finish this season strong.

We pick against the spread for every bowl game. Enjoy!
