NFL And College Football Picks — Week 9

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 14-8

Last Week ML: 3-3 (+2.35 units)

This Week ATS: 0-2 (West Va and the UNC/Pitt over given out on the FSB Facebook page)

2015 Season ATS: 58-60-3 (49%)

2015 Season ML: 6-8 (+4.4 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

The old gambling credo is that it takes weeks for people to build up a bankroll and a weekend for them to lose it. Here at FSB, I’m pushing for the opposite to happen. I picked up 10 games over the past two weekends in the win/loss column to hit the .500 for the season, before a disastrous 0-2 night last night.

The Strangest Point Spread Of The Season And How To Play It — Utah Vs Southern Cal

A point spread in college football came out on Sunday afternoon that raised eyebrows across the country. The 6-0, #4 ranked Utah Utes are traveling to USC to play the 3-3 Trojans who are coming off a hard fought loss at Notre Dame and are playing just their second game with an interim head coach after Steve Sarkisian was fired for all of his alcohol issues

To mostly everyones surprise, the books posted the Trojans as a 3 point favorite, and that line has grown to 3.5 and even 4 points in some places, moving off of the most important number (3) in football handicapping. 

Last Second Meltdowns: The Auburn Kick 6 Or The Michigan State Miracle At The Big House?

That Michigan State/Michigan game yesterday? That’s why people watch sports. Sean McDonough will hopefully have some time to rest his vocal cords because he nearly broke them yesterday on the games final play. Why that Michigan punter didn’t just jump on the ball is beyond me. But there he was, fumbling around with the ball until a couple bounces later the Spartans took their first lead of the game, with the clock full of zeros. 

NFL And College Picks — Week 7

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 8-10-1

This Week: 1-0 (Auburn -2 given out on FSB Facebook yesterday)

Last Week ML: 1-2 (-.70 units)

2015 Season ATS: 38-48-2 (44%)

2015 Season ML: 3-5 (+2.05 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5

 

Welp, 44% for the season, not very good! If the season ended today, I’d definitely have Redskins era Steve Spurrier deliver the post mortem. Check the link below for his press conference from what would end up being his last media appearance with the Redskins. Comedy gold.

NFL And College Picks — Week 6

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 9-11

Last Week ML: 1-1 (+3 units)

2015 Season ATS: 29-38-1

2015 Season ML: 2-3 (+2.75 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5

 

So, I’m already 10 losses away from my entire 2014 tally. Obviously, the computers at FSB headquarters have been hacked. Also, last season I gave suggestions on the money line, but didn’t keep track of those picks for record keeping purposes. Those ML suggestions heated up big time, culminating in picking Ohio State straight up over Alabama in the CFB Playoff.

NFL And College Football Picks — Week 4

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week: 9-8-1

This Week: 1-0 (Redskins/Giants over 45 last night, posted on the FSB Facebook page)

2015 Season ATS: 17-19-1

2015 ML Plays (1 unit per play): 1-1 (+.75 units)

2014 Season: 77-48-5

 

Still clawing my way back to even, but things are looking up. I’ve hit my last 4 NFL plays, had a ML winner with the Raiders and starting to get in the flow of college too. Another brutal loss for the record that ended up being a push in reality with Toledo last week. I posted -7.5 but it ended up -7, as the Rockets got the miracle push in OT after Iowa State missed a chip shot FG to win in regulation. Always remember to buy the hook, especially on a key number like 7.

NFL And College Football Picks — Week 3

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week: 5-7

This Week: 1-0 (Louisville last night, posted on the FSB Facebook page)

2015 Season: 7-11

2014 Season: 77-48-5

 

The good news is week 2 was better than week 1. However, I’d set the bar pretty low with my miserable week 1. My college sides have heated up and it’s just a matter of time before the NFL does as well. If you took Texas -14.5 and not -14, you were victim to a pretty brutal bad beat. I ended up with -14 in my pools, but I posted -14.5, so it’s only fair to count it as a loser. Texas was up 42-14 with 7 minutes remaining and let Rice in the backdoor. That’s the kind of beat that gets an Athletic Director fired.

NFL Season Win Total Picks And Week 2 Picks

sportsbook-lg-01

Last week: 1-4

2015: 1-4

2014: 77-48-5 (62%)

Woof. Tough one last weekend; it happens. Whiffed badly on the UNC/South Carolina over, but that Ohio State/Va Tech game felt pretty underish as the 4th quarter grinded away. Urban Meyer pushed the passing game with J.T. Barrett in the game for Cardale Jones and some garbage time TDs pushed it way over. 

UCLA kept Virginia out of the end zone all day, until they left the backdoor open and the Cavaliers stole a cover from Bruin backers late in the 4th quarter. 

College Season Win Total Picks And Week 1 Picks

sportsbook-lg-01

Football is around the corner (actually, does it ever go away? NFL Live aired episodes in April), and with it returns the FSB football picks. First up, the college football season win total picks and week 1 picks.

Coming off a very successful 2014 picking games against the spread, hitting 62% winners (77-48-5) in college and pro combined, I’m itching to follow it up with another 60%+ season.

Last season, I posted all my picks on the FSB Facebook page, which I came to realize wasn’t ideal for record keeping purposes. So this season, keep tabs on the site because all the picks will be in posts as well as the comments section of said posts.
