2017 College Football: Week 3 Picks

(8) Oklahoma State at Pittsburgh    +13.5 / 63.5 Saturday Sept 16 Noon Pitt is desperately missing former OC Matt Canada and start RB James Conner. They have been unable to come close to replicating last year’s offense and without that don’t stand much of a chance. The Cowboys keep it rolling again this week., the offense looks...

2017 NFL: Week 2 Survivor Picks

Hit last week with the Steelers and Bills, although those games were closer than expected. Chalk it up to week 1 feeling out as teams finally went full bore and tested what they had in real time. I didn’t expect Tom Savage to be Tom Brady but come on. Brutal play on offense less 1 drive when Watson came in. This all world defense has their...

2017 Champions League: Group Stage – Matchday 1 Sept 2017

Group E: Liverpool v Sevilla Liverpool took it on the chin this weekend against Man City. They were playing well until Mane kicked the opposing goalie in the face and received a straight red. Kloop will have his team ready and bounce back. They cant drop points here if they intend to win this weak group. Sevilla is their only competition and have...

2017 NFL: Week 1 Picks

Since we don’t have much tape to go on other than a couple preseason games we are going lite this week. Take Cincinnati -3 and Arizona -2. Baltimore has been crushed with injuries already and I look for the Bengals to bounce back off a disappointing year. The Cardinals have to get out of the gate strong and are healthy for the 1st time in a...

2017 NFL: Week 1 Survivor Picks

Each week I will be giving out my top 3 teams to win your survivor pools. I try to avoid picking road teams and divisional matchups. Will also try to stay away from the overwhelming favorite’s so that when that upset no one saw coming hits, you aren’t apart of it. These aren’t be all end all rules as the schedule just doesn’t...

2017 College Football: Week 2 Picks

Went 3 – 2 last week, hitting all 3 of our ATS plays and falling just short with the over totals. Auburn & L’Ville took longer than expected to get going and cost us, decent start to the year but not where I want to be. On to week 2…   (16) Louisville at UNC            +10 / 62.5 Saturday Sept 9th  Noon Bobby P and...

2017 College Football: Week 1 Picks

Tulsa at Oklahoma State      -18.5 / 70 Thursday  8/31  7:30pm These in state rivals last played in 2011 with OKST covering easy. I expect more of the same this time around. If OK ST wants to be talked about as a playoff contender they need to come out and make a statement early.  Rudolph and company will light up the Tulsa D. Pick: Ok State -18...

2017 NFL: Win Totals

Arizona | Over 8.0 This is basically it for the team as constructed. Palmer and Fitz are all but done after this year. DJ expects to shoulder most of the load which will open up the passing game. They picked up 2 starters through the draft on D ( Reddick | Baker) which should provide some support to Paterson. Special Teams can’t get any...

Power 5 ACC VA Tech 9/1 2nd Year under Fuente. 1st conf game is Clemson @ Home (could lose and still win the coastal) Only other game they...
