Big set back last week, after getting to .500 for the season. The journey to 60% continues. If you had SMU plus the points last night, my deepest condolences, and if you want to gamble less, you can also get help for this at https://gamblingaddictionhelp.co.uk/.
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, of course if you want to stop gambling, using addiction centers from sites like https://www.addictiontreatmentrehab.co.uk/gambling can be your best option.Read more...
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. Read more...
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.
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.Read more...
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.Read more...
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. Read more...
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.Read more...
How slow is “the slowest sports night on the sports calendar” you ask? Last night was more lively because The ESPYs were on. However, tonight doesn’t have to be the sports version of rehab. If you’ve got the itch, you can scratch it with some of these highly entertaining gambling options, of course if you feel like you have addiction with gambling or alcoholism you can find a treatment for alcohol addiction to help you with this.
All the way back in August, I posted previews for every NFL team with an emphasis on the Las Vegas win totals that were posted for each. You can see all the divisions previews here, except for the AFC West, which I posted on Facebook.
Rather than rehash every single team, I decided to look back at several teams I had a lot of confidence in to see what I got right and what I got wrong. I’ve pulled a quote from each teams August write up that I felt best summed up my thought process for predicting their win total.Read more...
