College football, NFL picks, preview,




The college football’s Week 10 menu features an intriguing menu of sudden death football in the major conferences and independent. It’s safe to say no small conference or mid-major team as a chance to qualify for the final four though Central Florida still unbeaten will see itself in a New Year’s Day bowl. We’ll look at the MAC conference where Ohio and Akron remain in the hunt for the MID American East regular-season championship. In the Western division of the MAC, the Toledo, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan remain in the hunt for the division title.  Ohio host Kent State and a win assure them of the regular season title. Last time out Ohio defeated Kent State 48-3. Miami of Ohio covered a-3 spread by defeating a valiant Buffalo team 24-14. Miami of Ohio signature win is a week four trouncing of Central Michigan.  Except for the Notre Dame fiasco where the Irish destroyed those 52-17 the red hawks as played everyone tough.   Last year Ohio defeated the red hawks 17-7. I expect a tight game I’ll take the +10 and Miami of Ohio to cover. Ohio is maybe looking ahead to MAC championships since they have locked up the division. Final score Ohio 48-40 in OT or 45-42 OT Take Miami of Ohio to cover +10

The Central Michigan Chippewa’s and the Western Michigan Broncos will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Waldo Stadium. Western Michigan was a 20-17 winner in its last match on the road against Eagles. They covered the -2.5-point spread as a favourite. Last time out Central Michigan dismantled Ball State 56-9. Nonetheless, they do have a loss 30-10 loss to Toledo-one of the teams currently ahead of them for the division title. Western Michigan is still in the hunt for the division title in that they still have to play Northern Illinois and Toledo. I give Western Michigan the victory and the cover. Central Michigan is improving, and they play hard every week. I like Western Michigan because they are at home and focused on the task ahead.


In the other game of concern, Toledo and Northern Illinois see the winner in control of the Western Division title and a spot in the MAC championship game. Toledo defeated NIU 31-24 last season. I expect a bit of the same type of a game. NIU as injuries so I’m favouring Toledo to win the game 27-23,  30-20 or 19-10 ……I won’t wager on a cover Toledo -9


Akron holds a 4-1 record in the division and first place. Overall they are 5-4 with decent victories over Western Michigan and Toledo. I don’t expect Akron to look ahead to the big game with Ohio a game that will decide the Eastern Division regular season champion.  Last time out Akron defeated Buffalo 21-20.  Akron is idle this week, but the November 14th game with Ohio will decide the representative in the MAC championship game.

Other games of betting concerns before Big Saturday see Eastern Michigan at home to Ball State.  Eastern Michigan is 2-6, but they have been more than respectable in losses to Ohio 20-27, Kentucky 20-24, Toledo 15-20, Army 27-28, Western Michigan 20-27 and Northern Illinois 27-30. I expect Eastern Michigan to blow out Ball State 49-13 and get the -24.5 cover. Navy visits Temple on Thursday. I like Navy to win this game early and often. The final score Navy gets a surprise win in Philadelphia 45-24. Take the money line be wild and gamble the points like me -9. Idaho has +18 to work with against a Troy team that is slipping. Give me Idaho on the road and points.  Marshall always beats FAU; this year may be different with the new coach coming from Alabama. I like Marshall to cover the +9.5 points; I won’t wager any real money on the win except in a long shot bet parlayed with a group of DAWGS throughput the week.  It’s funny because Tulsa played tough all year with nothing to show. Tulsa is one of the big disappointments along with UCLA, Texas AM, Florida, LSU to an extent and FSU and USC.  That said you might see a big upset this Friday when they face Memphis. If the Tulsa players still have a fight I call for a cover at +12.5 the final score 51-41 or 47-38. UCLA faces Utah it won’t surprise me if UCLA gets the win that said I’m staying away. Utah is more than 4.5 favourites take the Bruins the final score 38-30 if UCLA can pull upset or 30-27 UTAH.

Those are my nibbles before the big games on Saturday come back to website Friday night early Saturday morning for Saturday picks.

Boise state BOISE STATE at WASHINGTON STATE… State wins Boise slight to cover .






Remember to be smart and leave your heart on the floor.  Washington is travelling across the country to play Rutgers. Washington is the better team but the time zone and lack of a power game will play a disadvantage. Wager on Rutgers to cover the spread and small amount possible upset.  Last year Rutgers finished 2-12 and Washington finished 12-2 with a final four appearance.  Last year Washington prevailed 48-13 however, this is the reason why you come to the crystal cave. Rutgers to obviously cover 28 points at least takes the points  12341308_10153184390540825_6576509195751453998_n

The Navy Midshipmen and the Florida Atlantic Owls will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at FAU Stadium. Odds makers opened the Midshipmen as -18-point favourites versus the Owls, while the game’s total opened at 68. Florida Atlantic was a 77-56 loser in its last match on the road against Blue Raiders. They failed to cover the +17-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 133 sent OVER bettors to the payout window. Navy was a 48-45 loser in their most recent outing at home against Bulldogs. They covered the +7.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (93) made winners of OVER bettors. Lane Kiffin, the new coach and he, brought some talent from the transfer, junior college or recruiting. Last year Navy finished 9-5 and FAU 3-8. I feel FAU new coach has enough in the tank to solve a wishbone. Stop the run and keep the wishbone on the bench and you win the game. 38-28…..FAU another upset based on FAU being able to sustain long drives. Take the cover points FAU +10 Wager 20 on FAU win


Boston College Eagles and the NIU Huskies will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Huskies Stadium. Odds makers opened the Eagles as -2-point favourites versus the Huskies, while the game’s total opened at 10. NIU was a 31-21 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Golden Flashes. BC beat NIU 17-14 ……I expect similar game and close score BC 24-20


The Wyoming Cowboys and the Iowa Hawkeyes will both be looking to go 1-0 on the season when they meet at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday. Odds makers opened the Hawkeyes as -13-point favourites versus the Cowboys, while the game’s total opened at 53.5. Iowa was a 30-3 loser in its last match at home against Gators. They failed to cover the +1-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 33 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window. Last time out for Wyoming, they were a 24-21 loser as they battled Cougars at home. Wyoming covered in the match as a +9.5-point underdog; I believe Wyoming got too much imagination on 0 and Iowa is a very much a team who wants to bruise out a win. I like Wyoming in this game. Take all those points on Wyoming.  Wyoming +12/5 A possible upset, however, I cannot pull the trigger on a win 24-23 either way.


Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium has a Week 1 contest on tap for Saturday as the Maryland Terrapins, and the Texas Longhorns play their season openers. Odds makers opened the Longhorns as -17.5-point favourites versus the Terrapins, while the game’s total opened at 55.5. Texas lost its last outing, a 31-9 result against Horned Frogs on November 25. Texas failed to cover in that game as a -3-point favourite; while the 40 combined points took the game UNDER the total. Maryland was a 36-30 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Eagles. They failed to cover the -1.5-point spread as favourites, while the total score (66) made winners of OVER bettors. I want those points. Take Maryland to cover. The fans at AT&T Stadium will be treated to a game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Florida Gators when they take their seats on Saturday. Odds makers opened the Wolverines as -3-point favourites versus the Gators, while the game’s total opened at 48. Florida was a 30-3 winner in its last match on the road against Hawkeyes. They covered the -1-point spread as favourites, while the total score of 33 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window. Michigan was a 33-32 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Seminoles. They failed to cover the -6.5-point spread as favourites, while the total scores (65) made winners of OVER bettors Florida missing a few key player s due to suspension. Michigan got a coaching edge and toughness. That said SEC is a stronger conference. Take the points Florida + 5 I liked them to win outright 24-20 until I heard starting RB suspended. Take the points and SEC …..


The South Carolina Gamecocks and the NC State Wolf pack will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Bank of America Stadium. Odds makers opened the Gamecocks as -4-point favourites versus the Wolf pack, while the game’s total opened at 47. In their last action, NC State was a 41-17 winner on the road against Commodores. They covered the -5.5-point spread as favourites, while the combined score (58) was profitable news for OVER bettors. South Carolina was a 46-39 loser in their most recent outing at home against Bulls. They covered the +10.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (85) made winners of OVER bettors. NC State is favoured tonight by 5.5. They have trouble with SEC …Give my South Carolina and +5.5 points.  South Carolina to cover I won’t bet the game due to NC state big play potential and heroics against top flight talent. (you’re looking some value take South Carolina). My prediction NC State 34-30


I like UTEP to cover Oklahoma who as to break in new receivers and running backs.  UTEP keeps it close for half and Sooners pull away to 24 point victory final score 43-17 Another scenario Oklahoma fans shit bricks as the team pulls out a 24-17 victory. That said take the points +43 and UTEP.

Big Boy Picks Week 6


Let’s finish this off with no song and dance. Temple covers +19.0, BYU covers +16.0, West Virginia might upset Virginia Tech take my points +4.0 Texas AM as a chance against UCLA. UCLA QB is superior, but it’s the SEC macho spirit take the points Texas AM + 4 Tennessee to beat GT and cover -3 Colorado State as a game under the belt and home field. I wager 30 on the upset. And 50 on the cover, Marshall for win and cover over Miami Ohio. I’m going to box Coastal Carolina game with Mass. Vanderbilt should beat up on Middle Tennessee. I don’t see why odds maker has this close game -3.5 take Vanderbilt to cover -3.5, BYU to cover LSU +13.5 as an underdog.  The big game between Alabama and FSU……..???  I favour Tide on offence and the QB edge, RB and receiver edge to the TIDE.  FSU has a solid D.  No call edge to Alabama and FSU cover. Utah State to cover 28 points against Wisconsin and a possible upset 34-23
