A big gigantic WELCOME to the gambling degenerate portion of my audience. I hope you find this post in good spirits because who knows by the end of it you could be cursing my name and hoping I get hit by a bus.
I have always wanted to share my picks with some organized post that is consistent and covers both College Football and NFL Football. Funny thing about my betting pattern is that I don’t try and dabble in other sports during football season. I like appreciating what we have in the pigskin and that’s what this installment is for. All spreads come straight from the fine people over at Bovada Sportsbook.
College Football – Fridays
NFL Football – Saturdays
Louisville +7 vs Florida State
Oklahoma -7 vs Texas
Tennessee +36.5 vs Alabama
Games of the Week
USC +3.5 vs Notre Dame
Everyone is making such a big deal over Penn State and Michigan being the game of the week and in primetime on ABC. I think College Gameday missed the boat because this game is going to be a gem. USC heads into South Bend ready to scrap, and I’m a believer in the Trojans. I think Sam Darnold needs to have this performance after having such an up and down year. Notre Dame is 15th in the nation in points against, but they are 66th in the nation when it comes to pass defense. Darnold is the best QB they have faced (pro-scouting wise) this season and I really think the Trojans cover here. Football Power Index gives the Irish a 78% chance to win so let’s go shock the world, folks.
Michigan +9.5 vs Penn State
I know it’s an easy out to take the underdogs when it comes to the big matchups this week. You get more points in your pocket and you aren’t banking on the win but more so the cover. Still, I had to take Michigan because it’s 9.5 points between two top 10 defenses in the country when it comes to points against. Michigan ranks 8th in the country and Penn State is number 1 in the nation. Michigan’s quarterback play has been laugh out loud bad but I think both team’s running games keep this game low scoring and definitely within 9.5
