Jimmyshivers Week 6 ACC Football Selections

Unfortunately real world responsibilities have kept me from posting my weekly picks until the last minute.  Last week saw our first losing week of the season (1-2 -0.7 units).  We have a very nice card in the ACC this week that should present some good opportunities to generate some extra revenue for our bankroll.  Unfortunately I was not able to post my Louisville-Syracuse Under winner in this thread, but it is nice to know...

Jimmyshivers Week 5 ACC Football Picks

After a very successful week 3 (6-1 record) outside circumstances forced me to skip posting a Week 4 ACC card here.  Ultimately this wound up being a positive, as it was a very ugly card that I wasn’t able to dedicate my usual amount of time towards researching.  Week 5 brings us a much more favorable schedule for the ACC teams in my opinion, and one that I invested in very early.  I played a bunch of games when the...

Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread

Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread   Aside from Virginia Tech earning a shocking W in Columbus, it was not a huge week nationally for the ACC. Sometimes it’s best in the early weeks just to stay out of the spotlight (Big Ten!) and grind out results.  That’s exactly what the rest of the league did in Week 2, with all 11 ACC teams who played a non-conference game earning a Win. On the gambling front, it was also a solid week...

Jimmyshivers Week 2 ACC Football Picks

A really nice start to the season last week, with a 5-1 record on our ACC selections for the opening week.  It was bittersweet that the only loss was on NC State, which also happened to be the game that I was at.  But at least the home team won! I waited until Friday this week to post my card as it honestly is an ugly ACC slate of games.  Many of the league teams are playing FCS opponents, and while all of those are not...

Jimmyshivers Week 1 ACC Football Thread

Hello everyone & welcome back for another exciting (and likely incredibly confusing) season of ACC Football.  In this year’s game of ACC roulette, we see the conference lose original member Maryland but add Louisville.  Adding to the confusion is the partial addition of Notre Dame, who will only play 5 ACC games a year for the foreseeable future.  If any conference could get away with adding half a team, it had to...

ACC Quarterbacks to Watch in 2014

The reigning Heisman winner is an obvious quarterback to watch in 2014, but outside of Jameis Winston, which other ACC QB’s should you pay attention to this fall? The conference doesn’t have many star players at the position, with guys like Tajh Boyd off to the NFL, but there are still some solid players lining up behind center this fall. Cole Stoudt, Clemson We will start off with Stoudt since I mentioned Boyd earlier. Boyd...

2014 ACC Team Preview – Virginia Tech

As College football season rapidly approaches, I wanted to take a brief look at each team in the ACC as we say goodbye to Maryland and welcome Louisville into the fold.  The main focus of these previews will be on the schedule for each team, and projecting their performance against it.  I’m also taking a look at the projected win total for each team and determining if their is any value in betting the preseason line....

2014 ACC Team Preview – Wake Forest

As College football season rapidly approaches, I wanted to take a brief look at each team in the ACC as we say goodbye to Maryland and welcome Louisville into the fold.  The main focus of these previews will be on the schedule for each team, and projecting their performance against it.  I will also take a look at the projected win total for each team and predict how they will fare against it. The power numbers are of my own...

ACC Teams That Could Be Underrated in 2014

The ACC as a whole is an underrated conference because they don’t have the amount of national powers found in the SEC and Pac-12. There are five teams from the ACC that are being overlooked for 2014. Clemson The Tigers lost some key offensive playmakers from 2013, but will reload with more than capable replacements. Cole Stoudt, Tajh Boyd’s replacement, is a senior who has been in the system for three years. The Tigers have...

Virginia Tech Football 2014 – Better, Worse or abo...

Virginia Tech Football 2014 – Better, Worse or about the Same? OFFENSE The offense is in its 2nd year under Scot Loeffler and it should bear more of his imprint. Whether they have the talent at the skill positions is yet to be seen. The Hokies have a lot of speed, and the line is veteran, but the QB is likely to be a transfer with little prep time as he won’t practice til August. They have five decent running backs,...
