2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Three

That’s how we do it ladies and gentlemen. With South Carolina’s easy 31-13 win over Missouri, in which I asked numerous times why the Tigers were even favored, we’re now even at 1-1 on the year. As for the other games which we profiled but don’t officially make a prediction, well, we had mixed results. The Arkansas and Auburn games were losses but thanks to Georgia things weren’t all for not....

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Two

So, last week: Yup, my fault. I knew it too. Called it. Taking Tennessee to cover, because why? Never. Again. We’re 0-1 on the young season. On the flip side there’s Alabama. And yes, they’re really good. As for week two… SEC Pick of the Week: South Carolina at Missouri (-2.5), 7:00pm ET ESPN. Why is Missouri favored here? Is it because they’re at home, and they scored 1,000 points against...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week One

As we discussed last week in our preview edition for the 2017 season we’re expecting big things this year – from not only myself, but the SEC as well. Despite Alabama’s loss to Clemson in the CFP Championship Game last winter I’ll still say that from top to bottom, yes, I’m looking at you East Division, that the SEC is the best conference in college football. You can call me crazy if you want...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Preview Edition

And, we’re back! Welcome to the 2017 edition of the SEC Pick of the Week here at The Saturday Edge. Last year, as in 2016, we managed to scrape by with a 9-4 ATS record in the regular season only to combine that with losses in the SEC Championship Game. I guess a 18-9 record isn’t so bad. That means what, we’ve hit on 66% of our picks? That doesn’t even include the “upset alert” or...

Tips for Capping Bowl Games

Tips for Capping Bowl Games As Old Dominion and Eastern Michigan have accepted bids to for the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, its time to start Capping College Football a bit differently than the regular season.  All of the tools involved capping teams still apply, but some other elements come into play.  Power Ratings still apply, and even though I have Old Dominion -2 against Eastern Michigan on a neutral there are many other...

Preview & Pick for 2016 ACC Championship Game

The Clemson Tigers currently sit at No. 3 in the rankings, and a win over Virginia Tech would likely clinch their spot in the College Football Playoff. Don’t overlook the Hokies, though. It was an impressive first season for head coach Justin Fuente, who has led Virginia Tech to a 9-3 record and wins over North Carolina and Miami.   When: Sat. Dec. 3, 8 p.m. ET, ABC Where: Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL Line:...

2016 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Thirteen

Welcome to rivalry week. I’m also fairly certain I used a similar introduction last season but I’m too lazy to look it up to confirm it. On another note: with our win last week – because, you know, there’s no way Florida was losing that game, let alone not covering the two-touchdown point spread – we’re now 9-3 on the season. We’ve equaled our win total from last season and...
