I had a pretty sad all around betting experience last weekend. I was rocked in college football and was just so-so in the NFL. I hit on a nice parlay that saved the weekend.
I’ve historically done very well on Thanksgiving. I’ve went a perfect three-for-three in many years. I can’t promise that will happen this season as Thursday games are the bane of my existence. It’s becoming a gimmick at this point.
There are quite a few double-digit point spreads this week. We will see more and more of those as teams start to drop out of playoff contention.
Can I win a damn Thursday game? Let’s do this!
We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season.
Sports fans have been served very well by the creation of the smartphone. Now, there is so much more access to live information than ever before, so you never need to miss a minute of the action.
Here, we will be ranking some of the most popular sporting apps on the market and talking about what it is that makes them so great. Some sporting apps will also give you access to other features like betting football on Thanksgiving, but here we will be covering news-related ones. It is likely that once you find one or two that you like, these will be the ones that you stick with in the long-run, so here they are.
Your boy had a really rough week. I missed on a couple embarrassing blowouts, injuries hurt two games and weather was a huge factor. I thought weather would miss some of these games, but nope, the middle of the country was just pounded by rain and poor playing conditions.
It’s officially rivalry week. The country’s biggest programs face their rivals this week. These games have a reputation for being closer than normal games, but it’s not an ‘end all, be all’ rule one must obey. Good teams still blow out their rivals on a consistent basis. There is always at least one big upset to keep the attitude of ‘throw the record books out when these two teams meet’ alive.
We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 30 college football games against the spread in Week 13 of the NCAA Football season (November 25th, 2017). We also pick some smaller conference games.
Yay! No more freakin’ bye weeks! A few of those weeks were rough, but we all hopefully survived.
Injuries are still happening at an alarming rate and the injuries to Washington RB Chris Thompson and even Miami QB Jay Cutler (in super deep leagues) can really mess with a roster. We hope to give you some streaming options for the week.
Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our oddball triumphant MS Paint masterpiece of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
I want to explain what I mean by “sit” and “start.” Of course you are going to start some of the guys i say to bench this week, because you probably used high draft picks or a lot of money in an auction for them. My ‘sit’ players are guys I am just not completely sold that they will have good weeks. If you have a guy that you are on the fence about, maybe this will help you pick between the players.
We’ve written over a dozen ‘Sports Crush’ posts since we launched AmericasWhiteBoy.com. We have spotlighted a ton of WWE Divas (Becky Lynch, Lana, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan and others). The readers keep viewing those posts, so we will keep delivering new female wrestlers like recent WWE main roster call-up, Mandy Rose.
Rose (Amanda Saccomanno) was a contestant on ‘Tough Enough’ and finished as the runner-up. She was then on a season of ‘Total Divas’. I am usually good about putting posts up of an NXT female wrestler before they are called up, but Mandy surprisingly appeared with Paige and Sonya Deville on RAW.
Rose was a fitness competitor and from what I’ve see of her, is a very good athlete. I’m excited to see what she does on the main roster.
Check out why we are crushing on Mandy Rose with our picture gallery, and a very special .gif.
I don’t always review WWE pay-per-views, but I usually do them for the ‘Big Four’ events. ‘Survivor Series’ would need to be a great show to surpass the previous night’s ‘NXT Takeover: War Games’ event that was insanely good.
I didn’t have high hopes for ‘Survivor Series’, but there were some matches that intrigued me. Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles was the match I was most looking forward to watching. I guess there were also certain match-ups in the main event that we’ve never seen before like Braun Strowman & Shinsuke Nakamura and Triple H & Bobby Roode that occurred, which were pretty cool.
Was the 2017 ‘Survivor Series’ worth all the hype?
I managed to not take a loss last Thursday…because it was a push. I hate Thursday games and I’ve pulled out my hair watching those games. They are just poorly played and have been difficult to handicap.
I finished last week .500, but it’s time to have a big week. I feel pretty good about the lines this week. There’s only one double-digit point spread, which is pretty rare this late in the season.
There are fourteen games on the schedule for the last week. There will be sixteen games a week starting next weekend.
Can the Patriots (-6.5) cover on the West Coast?
We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 11 of the 2017 NFL season.
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.
