West Coast Bias – Week Four Power Rankings

For those who haven’t been following weekly, the summary of the early week post is as follows: At the beginning of each week I am providing an analysis of my power rankings and the raw data and trends I build into each line, which I measure against the posted openers.  This allows me to arrive at what I call my “Average Variance” from the Vegas opener.  Based onmy experience, any average variance > 4, from the...

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....

College Football Preview – Tennessee at Flor...

Because of the storm the Gators come into this key SEC opening game with a 0-1 record as their 2nd game was ppd.  The Vols enter 2-0 with 1 win coming vs Georgia Tech. I love the way both of these teams enter this game as it relates to my selection here.  Florida got completely pushed around by Michigan and the score was slightly misleading as the Gators scored their only 2 TDs thanks to their defense (and if you want to get...

West Coast Bias – Week Three Plays

YTD: 6-6  LW: 5-2 108 USF UNDER 56 – The Tampa community is obviously dealing with the impact of Irma, with the USF campus closed most of this week and having to cancel their game last week due to the storm.  Expect the Bulls’ offense led by solid QB Flowers to be a bit rusty and for the Illini defense to bring their lunch-pails, as they have only given up 28 points in two games in 2017.  Illinois is also...

2017 Big Ten Football Picks – Week # 3

The season got off to a terrible start at 0-3 but things rebounded decently a week ago as I went 2-1. That means the current record for 2017 is 2-4.     Game of the Week – Missouri (-7) vs. Purdue – 4:00 pm on SECN The Missouri Tigers are coming off of a disappointing second half that saw them crumble and fall to the South Carolina Gamecocks. They fired their defensive coordinator and are looking for answers on...

West Coast Bias – Week 3 Power Rankings

For each week of the 2017 season, I’ll only do one post early in the week showing my updated power rankings (and any moves up or down) and my analysis on the opening lines v. my numbers. For the first few weeks, this analysis is mainly my power rankings and some small data and trends I build into each line measured against the posted openers.  This allows me to arrive at what I call my “Average Variance”...

West Coast Bias – Week Two Plays

YTD: 1-4  LW: 1-4 315 Northwestern O 55 – Last weekend the Chi-Town Kitties bumbled away two TD’s in the red zone with fumbles and then got the offense going in the second half to put away a pesky Nevada crew.  I expect them to fine-tune the offense a bit this week and QB Thorson and RB Jackson to get some points on the board against a Duke team that has few starters returning on a defensive unit that gave up...

2017 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 2...

I’m nothing if not honest, week one was a swing and a miss from me. Here’s to climbing the ladder back to even this week and moving forward!     Game of the Week – Iowa (-2.5) at Iowa State – Noon EST I am slightly nervous about putting any faith at all into the Iowa Hawkeyes and their moribund offense but boy, their defense sure did look amazing in week one. The Hawkeyes, led by the outstanding Josey Jewell,...
