I must admit I am very pleased with my best bets and regular plays so far this year in college and my only hope is that this success will continue. I must also admit that I was happy and ticked at the same time last week as Alabama did beat A&M but with 15 seconds left they let A&M score and cut my win to a push. Oh well it is what it is. So below are my picks for this week in college football. I have a pick on Clemson tonight as a regular play. 

 

My first best bet this week is on the team that I was happy to see lose last week and that is TEXAS A&M at home spotting SMU 28 points. After losing to Alabama last week, I am sure A&M will be all amped up to make amends and using my stats, A&M has won and covered the last 3 games against SMU by a combined 160 to 25. I'm sure Johnny Football will have a field day against SMU's defense and A&M will win this game going away in the second half. Texas A&M is my first BEST BET.

 

My next best bet is on CINCINNATI on the road giving Miami, Ohio 22 points. Miami, Ohio ranks last in the nation averaging a paltry 180 yards per game, this will not get it done against the Bearcats that will most likely double or even triple that number. The stats also favor Cincy as they have won and covered 6 of the last 7 meetings between these 2 teams. To me there is very little chance the Redhawks will cover the spread as Cincinnati will pull away far enough in the 2nd half that even a backdoor cover will be impossible. I'm making Cincinnati a BEST BET.

 

My last best bet is on BALL STATE on the road giving Eastern Michigan 10 points. Ball State last week had a comfortable 27-16 lead at halftime against North Texas State but 5 turnovers in the 2nd half cost them the game, that won't happen this week against a team ranked 110th in offense and has been held under 14 points 8 times since last year and failed to cover 6 of 8 MAC games last year. Ball State will make amends after losing last week with a big win over this MAC rival. Ball State is my last BEST BET.

 

My regular plays this week are - Michigan on the road at Connecticut giving UConn 17 1/2 points. Maryland at home giving West Virginia 5 points. I do like Clemson tonight on the road giving NC State 13 1/2 points. And finally Wyoming on the road giving Air Force 3 1/2 points.

 

My underdogs this week are - I will stay with red hot Florida Atlantic (FAU) at home getting 3 1/2 points from Middle Tennessee. I also like San Diego State at home getting 8 1/2 points from Oregon State. Finally I like Arizona State on the road getting 5 1/2 points from Stanford. 

 

As for over/unders - I like Hawaii/Nevada over 55, North Carolina/Georgia Tech over 59, and finally Ball State/Eastern Michigan over 55.

 

Well that's it for my college picks for this weekend. Let's make some money.

 

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

 

 

Well I can't believe it but I actually didn't notice that I did not have my underdog picks in my picks and I know you probably think I am making this up but I hit a football sheet with all 4 underdogs not only covering but winning outrigt - UCLA, No. Texas, FAU and So. Alabama, my best friend can attest to this as I put the sheet in with him. BUT I didn't post them so I can't count them, which is a real bummer. However I did stay in the black with my best bets as they went 2-1 ATS and 3-0 SU. Below are my stats for the rest of week 3 in college football.

 

COLLEGE WEEK 3 STATS

BEST BETS    2-1 ATS and 3-0 SU

Regular Plays 2-1-1 ATS and 4-0 SU

Underdogs     No Plays

Over/Unders  0-3-1 ATS

Regular Plays 6-3-1 ATS and 10-0 SU

I will be back on Thursday if I have any plays for the pro game and/or college game, if not I will be back on Friday with my college picks for the upcoming weekend. 

 

Well here we are in week 3 already of the college football season, and I for one am very happy that there is football on almost everyday. A very big game is on tap for this weekend, between Alabama and Texas A&M and I will be very happy if the Crimson Tide knocks Johnny Football down a peg or two, we shall see. Below are my picks for this weekend's college football card. 

 

My first best bet is on the LOUISVILLE CARDINALS on the road at Kentucky laying 14 points. I would have liked this line to stay under 2 TDs but I think everyone who follows football knows that Louisville's QB Teddy Bridgewater is for real and will be a Heisman contender. Louisville has won and covered the last 2 against Kentucky and I don't see that trend changing. The road team in this matchup is 4-1 ATS and after Saturday it will be 5-1 ATS. I can't see the Cardinals taking their foot off the gas pedal as they try and move up the polls from their 7 spot at the moment. This is definitely one of my stronger BEST BETS, take Louisville in a rout. 

 

My next best bet is on the STANFORD CARDINAL on the road spotting Army 30 points. My first question about this game is who in the Army football program scheduled Stanford, are you kidding me, really Stanford??? The one and ONLY reason Stanford would not cover this game is because they pulled their 1st, 2nd and 3rd string players and possibly being a west coast team they are playing at noon which for them is 9 o'clock in the morning. However, they are bigger, stronger and faster than Army so I for one think the Cardinal will win this game going away, make Stanford a BEST BET.

 

My last best bet this weekend is on the FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES at home giving Nevada 34 1/2 points. I am happy that the line on this game stayed under 5 TDs because maybe by the time the half comes FSU may already have covered this number and pull their starters, but with Bethune Cookman their next game they will definitely be focused on Nevada which is really bad news for the Wolfpack. These 2 teams have never met and I'm guessing after Saturday that Nevada will not schedule FSU again no matter how much money they get. This is my last stong play this weekend and I will make Florida State a BEST BET.

 

I do have some regular plays that were oh so close to being best bets. They are - Pittsburgh at home spotting New Mexico 22 points, Maryland on the road giving Connecticut 6 1/2 points, Northern Illinois on the road spotting Idaho 28 1/2 points and what I hope is a romp, Alabama on the road at Texas A&M laying 7 points.

 

As for over/unders I like the over 58 1/2 in the Kansas/Rice game, the over 62 1/2 in the Bowling Green/Indiana game, Western Kentucky/South Alabama over 55, and finally I like the over 62 1/2 in the Louisville/Kentucky game.

 

Well that's it for this week in college football, and may the best team win in the Alabama/Texas A&M game, and like I always say

 

Bet with your head and not over it. 

 

Well it was a tough loss as Oklahoma State was covering most of the game and then let UTSA backdoor cover them, but that's the nature of the beast. As for Oklahoma they just looked horrible. My one saving grace was Ball State who did not disappoint. My regular plays swept the board this week so I hope you put a few pesos on them. Here are this week's stats as well as my cummalative stats for college.

 

COLLEGE WEEK 2 STATS

BEST BETS      1-2 ATS and 3-0 SU

Regular Plays   3-0 ATS and 3-0 SU

Underdogs       0-3 ATS and 0-3 SU

Over/Unders    1-2 ATS

BEST BETS      4-2 ATS and 6-0 SU

I will be back late Thursday night or Friday with my college picks for the upcoming week. 

Thanks for visiting this website and please tell your friends. 

 

 

 

Well it sure was nice starting off 3-0 ATS with my best bets, you just can't do any better than that. So my first question after week 1 is, will Eastern Washington and McNeese State be FBS teams next year. LOL Anyway without further delay here are my college picks for Week 2. 

 

My first best bet this week is the same as last week, OKLAHOMA STATE on the road giving Texas San-Antonio 26 points. First of all I had to look up what UTSA's team name was, and for those of you who don't know it is the Roadrunners. I got to watch the Okie State game last week against Mississippi State and I thought their defense was much better than their offense. However, this week with a game under their belts the Cowboys offense will easily double their points against a overmatched UTSA team. This game looks like a blowout to me so I'm laying the points and taking the Cowboys as a BEST BET.

 

 

My next best bet is OKLAHOMA at home giving West Virginia 20 1/2 points. I didn't see the WVU game as they were playing William & Mary and barely beat them, while Oklahoma shutout ULM. The Mountaineers only lost by a point last year to the Sooners but that's when they had Geno Smith. This is West Virginia's opening road game and with a new QB in a hostile environment I just don't see them in this game. Okie covers the points and wins this game going away, the Sooners are a BEST BET.

 

 

My last best bet is BALL STATE at home giving Army 7 1/2 points. Both teams played FCS teams last week but Ball State scored 51 points while Army could only manage to score 28. Army is not a good road team going 0-4 ATS their last 4 games away. Ball State can score and Army doesn't have a passing attack to catch up. This to me adds up to be a very comfortable win for home team. Ball State to win and cover the spread as my last BEST BET

 

 

As for games I feel are worth calling regular plays, I like Penn State at home giving Eastern Michigan 24 points. Ohio State at home giving San Diego State 271/2 points, and finally North Carolina at home giving Middle Tennessee State 17 1/2 points. 

 

There are a few underdogs I think not only have a chance of covering but winning outright. They are Air Force at home getting 9 1/2 points from Utah State, South Carolina on the road getting 3 1/2 points from Georgia and finally Memphis at home getting 4 points from Duke. 

 

 

The over/unders picks in college football this week are Cincinnati at Illinois over 54 1/2, San Diego State at Ohio State over 56, and last but not least I like Hawaii at Oregon State over the 55 1/2.

 

I will be back Saturday night with my first pro picks of the season. 

 

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