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 11 Betting Picks Against Spread

I finished 13-11-1 last week.

I’ve struggled picking Pac 12 games this season. I need to avoid that conference for at least one week. I tend to jump on the road teams when they are large underdogs. Pac 12 teams have been pretty darn good at home since conference play started. I still picked a couple Pac 12 games this week, but way less than usual.

I decided to add five more games this week. There were some ACC and Big Ten games that I really liked, so it wasn’t too much extra work.

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.

2017 NCAA Football – Week 2 Betting Picks Against Spread

I went 14-10-1 last week against the spread. Some of my late Saturday afternoon picks were close, but didn’t fall in my favor. I did hit on most of the marquee games. I fell into a trap of picking a few large spreads against mid-major teams. Big programs often don’t take those games very serious, thus falling short of the large point spread.

We have already lost a few marquee players for long periods of time. Make sure you keep an eye on the injury reports cause a few backup quarterbacks are playing this weekend.

A couple Heisman candidates stumbled in Week 1. Will USC QB Sam Darnold right the ship? Will Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield become the Heisman favorite with an elite performance against Ohio State?

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick 25 college football games against the spread in Week 2 of the NCAA Football season (September 9th, 2017). We also focus on small conference games and Thursday night games.

2016 NCAA Football – Week 2 Betting Picks Against Spread

hot-sexy-tennessee-volunteers-vols-cheerleader-americas-white-boy-picks-against-the-spread-2016-week-2-gamblingI went 13-11-1 last week with a few bad beats. I can’t beat myself up about it since Week 1 is always loaded with landmines of risk. I picked some games I should have stayed away from (Houston vs Oklahoma) and didn’t expect such poor outings from Tennessee and UCLA.

As I said before, Week 1 is full of risk, but the following week is loaded with value. You have to take what you learned in Week 1 and use it for your advantage. At the same time, there are times that you kind of have to go against all your information since betting lines are often swayed a little too much if a team outperforms preseason expectations or is underwhelming in Week 1.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 10th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also picked five extra games as a bonus.

2016 March Madness: #7 Iowa vs #10 Temple

Quenton DeCosey Temple Owls 2016 ncaa tournament iowa hawkeyesWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat ‘Cheryl the secretary’ this year.

The Big Ten was a competitive conference with a lot of upsets. The top four teams in the conference kept trading wins, so teams have faced adversity all year. Iowa struggled more than any other top ten in the Big Ten, but still somehow managed to still get a #7 seed.

The American Athletic Conference was top-heavy, but Temple came out of nowhere after a weak showing during their non-conference schedule. They finished the year with the AAC regular season title.

Can Iowa shake off their late-season issues?

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

2015 NCAA Football – Week 13 Betting Picks Against Spread

michigan state kicker ohio state america's white boy college football picks against the spread 2015One day, I hope to be as happy as Michigan State’s kicker was last week. He went complete ‘Oprah audience member winning a free car’ crazy.

I went 11-9 against the spread last week. Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma and Iowa are now sitting on top of the College Football Playoff rankings this week. Michigan State and Notre Dame are currently the first two teams left out of the playoff.

I wanted to pick Baylor/TCU and Penn State/Michigan State games, but as of this writing, those lines are currently off the board. I wanted to get this week’s lines out as early as possible due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 28th, 2015), and pick some games earlier in the week. Enjoy!

2015 NCAA Football – Week 10 Betting Picks Against Spread

duke miami football lateral touchdown 2015The college football season has been pretty great so far. There are plenty of undefeated teams still left, but that will likely change very soon. Teams will start cannibalizing each other, especially in conference championship games.

The first College Football Playoff poll was announced last weekend. There were some surprises, especially with Clemson getting the #1 spot. I’ve been high on them lately, but it was still quite the surprise.

Rivalry games have started across college football. There are some games this weekend that have fanbases foaming at the mouth.

We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 7th, 2015), and pick some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!
