I would love to have a week like last week and there are plenty of games out this week where the spreads are a little surprising to me. So here's hoping I can keep my streak of all categories in the black going. Here are my picks for week 12 in college football. 

  

My first best bet is on WISCONSIN on the road giving Indiana 20 1/2 points. One of the co-owners of this website has been all over Wisky most of the season and with justifiable reason as they have quietly been knocking people off and are currently on a 4 game winning streak, SU and ATS. Indiana on the other hand was on a 3 game losing streak until they beat Illinois last week but the Illini aren't the Badgers. The stats overwhelmingly favor Wisky as they have won 6 out of 7 ATS versus the Hoosiers and have won and covered the last 3 by a 204-41 margin. So this will make my friend happy as I am making Wisconsin a BEST BET.

   

My next best bet is on VIRGINIA TECH at home giving Maryland 16 points. I got to watch VT last week play Miami and even though the Hurricanes were not at the top of their game, VT impressed me dominating Miami on their home field winning by 18. Maryland on the other hand who started out winning their first 4 games has since lost 4 out of the last 5 SU and only had one cover in those 5 games. Of course there has to be a stat that really swayed me onto VT and it is that they have won and covered the last 5 games against Maryland. So with Maryland in some kind of a swan song is ripe for the Hokies to crush and that is exactly what I think will happen here.  So I am making Virginia Tech a BEST BET.

  

My last best bet this week is on the SMU MUSTANGS at home giving UConn 14 points. I also got to watch SMU play Cincy last week and even though they were down they made a valiant comeback in the 4th quarter to lose by only 3 points, while the Huskies were beaten up by the Louisville Cardinals but did manage to backdoor cover the spread, even though they only had 3 points almost the whole game getting a meaningless TD with under a minute left. UConn hasn't won a game in almost a year and I don't see this one going their way as SMU has a decent offense and UConn's offense is just plain offensive barely averaging 14 points a game. So with the Mustangs still having a slim chance to make a bowl game I am making SMU my last BEST BET

 

My regular plays this week are - Ohio State on the road giving Illinois 32 points. Florida State at home giving Syracuse 39 points. Finally I like Colorado State on the road giving New Mexico 6 1/2  points.

  

My underdogs this week are - Houston on the road getting 15 1/2 points from Louisville. I also like Nevada at home getting 7 1/2 points from San Jose State. Finally I like USC on the road getting 3 points from Stanford.  

  

As for over/unders - I like Syracuse/Florida State over 55, Oregon State/Arizona State over 65 1/2and last but not least Indiana/Wisconsin over 70.

  

Well that's it for my college picks for the week. 

  

As always remember to bet with your head and not over it.

 

What a great week for my college underdogs as they went a perfect 3-0 ATS and SU you can't get any better than that. I did get backdoored on a few of my other picks but it is what it is. I am also pleased that all college catergories are now in the black for the season. So here are my stats for week 11 in college football and for the season.

 

COLLEGE WEEK 11 STATS

BEST BETS    1-2 ATS and 3-0 SU

Regular Plays 2-1 ATS and 3-0 SU

Underdogs     3-0 ATS and 3-0 SU

Over/Unders   1-2 ATS

 

COLLEGE OVERALL STAT 

BEST BETS    18-15 ATS and 31-2 SU 

Regular Plays 23-11-1 ATS and 35-0 SU 

Underdogs    15-14-1 ATS and 11-19 SU 

Over/Unders  17-15-1 ATS

  

There are college games every night this week so I may or may not be back with picks. The games during the week are all MAC games and until I can check the spreads and see if I like any of them I will be passing. So until then have a great week. 

 

Last night I gave you Ball State giving Central Michigan 21 points as a best bet and unfortunately Ball State let CMU march down the field with a little over a minute left and allowed them to backdoor cover. But it is what it is. So without further adieu here are the rest of my picks for week 11 in college football. 

  

My next best bet is on TEXAS A&M at home giving Mississippi State 19 points. I am not a big fan of Johnny Football but I must admit he is the catalyst that makes the Aggies so hard to beat. Last year A&M beat the Bulldogs in their own backyard by 25 so I see no reason why they can't cover this spread in their own house. Mississippi State is not only 0-4 ATS on grass but also 0-4 ATS their last 4 games, while A&M is on a 2 game ATS run. I just can't make a case here for the Bulldogs who are on their second consecutive road game but there is no doubt in my mind that Manziel will have a big game at home. So I am making Texas A&M a BEST BET.

  

My last best bet this week is on the COLORADO STATE at home giving Nevada 9 1/2 points. I like this game for a few reasons, the Rams have been playing good football and did give Boise State 2 weeks ago all they could handle and I for one was impressed. The Wolfpack are absolutely horrific on the road as the are 0-5 SU so far this year. But as usual my best reason for picking Colorado State is that the last time they played each other in 2010 when Nevada had Colin Kaepernick they totally embarrassed CSU beating them 51-6 and Kaepernick as we all know is not there anymore and I love revenge games and this one has revenge written all over it. So to me this add up to making Colorado State my last BEST BET

 

My regular plays this week areMissouri on the road giving Kentucky 14 points. Oklahoma State at home giving Kansas 31 points. Finally I like Navy at home giving Hawaii 17 points.

  

My underdogs this week areSan Diego State on the road getting 6 1/2 points from San Jose State. I also like Stanford at home tonight getting 10 points from Oregon. Finally I like Kansas State on the road getting 3 points from Texas Tech.  

  

As for over/unders - I like Houston/UCF over 64UAB/Marshall over 67, and last but not least Kansas/Oklahoma State over 53 1/2 .

  

Well that's it for my college picks for the week. 

  

As always remember to bet with your head and not over it.

 

 

 

 

Sorry I am posting this so late in the day but rest assured it is before tonight's kickoff. 

 

I am making BALL STATE at home giving Central Michigan 21 points a BEST BET. Ball State has won and covered 4 out of the last 5 games these 2 teams have played. To top it off CMU lost their top running back Tipton to a season ending injury and what's more their defense is just plain awful as they give up an average of over 400 yards per game. This is Ball State's game to lose and I just don't see that happening.

 

I will be back tomorrow with the rest of my college picks. 

 

 

 

Well not a great week for my best bets and regular plays but a sweep with my underdog and over/under picks. As a matter of fact if Temple could have held off Rutgers late in the 4th quarter I would have swept my underdog picks outright as well, but it wasn't meant to be. So here are my stats for week 10 in college football and for the season.

 

COLLEGE WEEK 10 STATS

BEST BETS    1-2 ATS and 3-0 SU

Regular Plays 1-2 ATS and 3-0 SU

Underdogs     3-0 ATS and 2-1 SU

Over/Unders   3-0 ATS

 

COLLEGE OVERALL STAT 

BEST BETS    17-13 ATS and 28-2 SU 

Regular Plays 21-10-1 ATS and 32-0 SU 

Underdogs     12-14-1 ATS and 8-19 SU 

Over/Unders  16-13-1 ATS

  

I will be back tomorrow, Wednesday with a pick on the Central Michigan/Ball State game and then later on Thursday with the rest of my picks, until then have a great week.
