Jimmyshivers ACC Title Game Selection

Last week we concluded a very successful regular season with another winning week that brought our seasonal record to 25-12.  The key to this run was being extremely selective in our play selection (I took several weeks off where my leans were not very strong) and to try to find teams primed to go on either a positive or negative run (Thanks to Florida State for consistently struggling!).  There are still a handful of ACC...

Jimmyshivers Week 14 ACC Football Picks

YTD: 23-11 +10.36 units Week 14 marks the final week of what has been an extremely wild (and profitable!) 2014 ACC football season. Let’s go out on a winning note!   Week 14 ACC Card Pittsburgh – Miami Over 56 Risking 1.05 units to win 1 unit This is a good match-up for both offenses in a spot that I believe is likely to produce points.  We’ve got a Pittsburgh team who loves to run the ball going...

jimmyshivers Week 12 ACC Football Picks

YTD 20-9 +10.41 units Week 11 saw us come out in the red for only the 2nd time this season as Boston College and Syracuse faltered after promising starts in their respective games.  In hindsight, Syracuse should not have been a play with their top 2 quarterbacks inactive, but I still felt pretty good about the spot and match-up for Boston College.  Credit goes to Duke & Louisville for finding a way to win tight games on...

Jimmyshivers Week 11 ACC Football Picks

YTD 19-7 +11.51 units Week 10 only saw two selections posted in this space, with an easy loser on the Louisville-FSU Under and an easy winner on Boston College to cover the points against Virginia Tech.  That brings us to 6 of 7 winning weeks for the season (I abstained from posting for 3 weeks) and a very healthy 73% winning percentage. This week, we see what is a very attractive ACC card with several tight spreads as we...

jimmyshivers Week 10 ACC Football Picks

18-6 +11.04 units Went 2-0 on another small card in the ACC last week, I’ve really done well this season by limiting the plays posted here and focusing on just a few games each week.   I usually play a larger card than what is posted here, and for anyone interested my full card can be found on my twitter feed, posted here.  Onto Week 10! YTD Summary: YTD 18 6 11.04 75.00% Wins Losses Units Win% NCAAF Week 1 5 1 3.45...

Jimmyshivers Week 9 ACC Football Picks

YTD 16-6 + 10.31 units After a two week break from posting plays here due to a couple of family issues, I now have some time to get back to being able to share my ACC plays here.  As always, my full card can be found on twitter here. Week 9 in the ACC is usually around the point where we start to see some clarity between who is good and who isn’t.  This year it looks like we have a cluster of 4 very good teams in the...

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...
