With only a few weeks left in college football before bowl season I am happy to say that I am still in the black with my best bets, and that's a good thing. There are some interesting games this weekend and there are a few underdogs I like to win outright. So without further adieu here are my picks for week 12 in college football. 

 

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on GEORGIA at home spotting Kentucky 21 1/2 points. I am picking the Bulldogs coming off an embarrassing 23 point loss to Auburn. This is also their last home game of the season and it's Kentucky's 2nd straight road game. Georgia has also won and covered their last 4 games against Kentucky and I am sure they want to make amends after their first loss of the season and their brief stay at number 1 and then dropping down to 7th. I like Georgia to take out their frustrations on the Wildcats and I am making them my first BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on MEMPHIS at home giving 12 1/2 points to SMU. Memphis has won and covered the last 4 times these 2 teams have met and I don't see that changing, especially since SMU is a dismal 1-3 on the road this year and this is their 2nd straight road game. Memphis is a perfect 5-0 this year at home and you know how I love streaks. I believe that Memphis will win this game by at least 3 tds which is more than enough to cover this spread, this is my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the SMU/MEMPHIS game going OVER 69. Memphis has averaged a little over 47 points a game the past 5 games and SMU has averaged around 31 the past 5 games. So with the total at 69 I find this not only doable but my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on SAN DIEGO STATE at home giving 16 points to Nevada. SDSU is coming home after 2 straight wins on the road facing a Nevada team that is 0-5 on the road this year. The past 2 meetings between these teams SDSU has outscored the Wolfpack 77 to 30 and with the spread at only 16 I see this as my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My LAST BEST BET is on WYOMING at home getting 3 points from Fresno State. The Cowboys have quietly gone 7-3 this year and their only loss at home was in September and that was to Oregon. Both teams have quarterbacks with issues but both are expected to play, but Allen is home and McMaryion is on the road in Wyoming where the temperature will be around freezing with a hand issue. I like the Cowboys getting points at home and I am making them my LAST BEST BET.

 

 

REGULAR PLAYS

As for regular plays I like Ohio State at home giving 38 points to Illinois. I like Oklahoma on the road giving 37 points to Kansas. I like Auburn at home giving 35 points to ULM. I like the Kentucky/Georgia game to go over 52. I like the Arizona State/Oregon State game to go over 59And finally I like Penn State at home giving 23 1/2 points to Nebraska.

 

My gut feeling play for this week is on Syracuse on the road against Louisville. 

 

Well those are my picks for this week in college. I will be back Saturday night with my NFL picks.

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

First I want to thank MOOSE THE GREEK for filling in for me the past 2 weeks giving you his picks on the NFL. He broke even as he went 3-3 ATS and SU so thanks again big guy. I will be back this upcoming weekend with my NFL picks and of course my college picks.

Well I managed to squeak out a winning week with my best bets but my regular plays took it on the chin. Like I always say it is what it is. Didn't expect Ark State and Pittsburgh and EMU to lose outright but they did and that was a triple surprise to me. Notre Dame and Georgia getting demolished was a shock. So with all that being said I am still in the black this year with my best bets, below are my stats for this week in college football as well as for the season so far. 

 

WEEK 11 STATS

BEST BETS    3-2 ATS and 4-1 SU

REGULAR PLAYS 2-4 ATS and 2-4 SU 

 

2017 SEASON STATS

BEST BETS          30-26-1 ATS and 40-17 SU

REGULAR PLAYS  29-36-2 ATS and 45-22 SU 

 

 

There are college games all this week starting tomorrow on Tuesday. If I have any picks for the games I will post them that day. I am looking at the NFL game on Thursday and if I like it I will post my pick on Wednesday night. I will be back to post my NFL picks for this weekend.

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

 

I had a best bet win with Northern Illinois on Thursday night. I also had 3 regular plays with Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Pittsburgh going only 1-2 ATS on these picks. Below are the rest of my picks for this week.

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET was on NORTHERN ILLINOIS at home giving Ball State 28 1/2 points on Thursday night.  WINNER

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on TEXAS at home giving Kansas 33 points. I know this is a lot of points to spot a team but Texas can name the score on this game as Kansas is just plain awful. In the past 4 weeks Texas has played TCU, Okie State and Oklahoma with Baylor thrown in, who the Longhorns beat by 31 at Baylor. This is home and I believe Texas will pour it on for the home crowd. I will lay the big number and make Texas my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on OKLAHOMA STATE on the road giving Iowa State 6 points. Okie State will not be in a good mood after losing last week at home to Oklahoma while the Cyclones lost a heartbreaker on the road at West Virginia. Okie State is 5-0 on the road this year and giving less than a TD to a team they have not lost to since 2011 and in that time only won by less than a TD once. I like my odds here so I will lay the points and make the Cowboys my NEXT BEST BET.

 
 

My NEXT BEST BET is on NOTRE DAME on the road giving Miami, Fl 2 points. Notre Dame is currently ranked 5th while Miami is ranked 6th. This is a perfect time for the Fighting Irish to show the NCAA that they are ready for prime time and a place in the top 4. I feel the line shows the oddsmakers like ND but not overwhemingly and that makes this best bet less than a fg. So I am going with ND and making them my NEXT BEST BET.

 

 
My LAST BEST BET is on BOISE STATE on the road giving Colorado State 5 points. This is the first time this year that I am going with my Smurfs. The beginning of the year I felt the Broncos were not going to have a good season starting with out 2-2 but they have since been on a 5 game winning streak going 4-1 ATS. CSU has lost its last 2 games and they are ripe for the picking here as Boise has a new attitude and I think I like it. So with the line under a td I am taking my Smurfs and making them my LAST BEST BET.
 

 

 
 
REGULAR PLAYS
 
 
As for regular plays, I won with Western Michigan game but lost the Eastern Michigan on Wednesday night. I also lost the Thursday night pick with Pittsburgh.  Continuing on I also like Arkansas State on the road  giving 10 1/2 points to South Alabama. I like Texas A&M at home giving New Mexico 17 1/2 points. And finally I like the Rutgers/Penn State game to go over 52 1/2

My gut feeling play is Utah at home to beat Washington State.

 

 

Well those are my picks for this week in college football. MOOSE THE GREEK will be my guest handicapper again this weekend for the NFL games. thanks Moose

 

And as always - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

 

I have a few picks in college this week before the weekend and a pick in the NFL Thursday game. Below are my picks and I will be back Friday night with the rest of my college picks. And MOOSE THE GREEK will be back again this weekend with his NFL picks.

 

COLLEGE PICKS FOR WEDNESDAY AND THURDAY NIGHT

 

I have a BEST BET Thursday night on NORTHERN ILLINOIS (NIU) at home giving Ball State 28 1/2 points. NIU has the better team and definitely the better offense. Ball State in their last 5 MAC games have lost by 52, 28, 47, 41 and 42 and the 47 point loss was off a bye and Homecoming. I don't need more than that. I will lay the points and make this my FIRST BEST BET.

 

 I have a regular play tonight(Wed) on Western Michigan(WMU) at home spotting Kent State 20 1/2 points. 

 I have a regular play tonight(Wed) on  Eastern Michigan(EMU) on the road spotting Central Michigan 2  points.

 I have a regular play Thursday night on Pittsburgh at home spotting North Carolina 9 points. 

 
 
NFL PICK

I have a regular play Thursday night on the Seattle Seahawks on the road spotting the Arizona Cardinals 5 points. 

 

 

I will be back Friday with the rest of my picks in college games this weekend. And my good friend MOOSE THE GREEK will be giving you his picks for this weekend's NFL games. Get 'em Moose. 

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

First I want to thank MOOSE THE GREEK for filling in for me on Sunday with his NFL picks.  

 

Well I managed to comeback with my best bets but my regular plays definitely could have been better. Notre Dame didn't cover and Penn State lost. My gut play on Oklahoma was a winner but a lot of none covers with my regular plays. I am still in the black with my best bets, so that's a plus. So with all that being said below are my stats for this week in college football as well as for the season so far. 

 

WEEK 10 STATS

BEST BETS    3-2 ATS and 4-1 SU

REGULAR PLAYS 2-4 ATS and 4-2 SU 

 

2017 SEASON STATS

BEST BETS          27-24-1 ATS and 36-16 SU
