2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Twelve

For what seems like the fourth or fifth time this season, no matter which team I throw my belief behind they lose. And they always seem to lose bad. And very quickly. This week’s victim: Georgia. Who lost 40-17 to Auburn. Probably because I picked them to win handily. LSU, Auburn (twice, maybe), Mississippi State and now Georgia, have all suffered from what appears to be The Saturday Edge SEC Curse. I’m open to...

West Coast Bias – Week Twelve 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 on my experience, any average variance > 4, from the posted...

2017 Big Ten Football Picks – Week # 12

The 2017 season started out very poorly as I went 0-3 in week one. However, things have been rolling since and last week was a perfect 3-0 to bring my record to 19-12-1 on the season. Northwestern dispatched of the Boilermakers, Rutgers did just enough to cover against Penn State and Michigan continued to roll past overmatched opposition as they drilled Maryland. Here are my Big Ten selections for this week based...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Eleven

Kurt Russell is one of my favorite actors, Especially his older stuff, Overboard, etc. Captain Ron is absolutely hilarious. But, remember the scene in the movie Miracle about the USA hockey team beating the Soviets in 1980 when he and one of the hockey committee leaders are walking down the street and the Soviets pass them heading the other way. Kurt Russell says “Somebody is going to beat those guys.” Well,...

2017 Big Ten Football Picks – Week # 11

After a bad first week, things have rebounded nicely and week ten was no exception. I again went 2-1 and am now 16-12-1 for the 2017 season. Penn State lost at Michigan State (kudos to the Spartans…I was very wrong about them) but the Northwestern Wildcats again came through for me with an outright win and Michigan hammered Minnesota for my two wins. Here are my Big Ten selections for this week with Mybookie.ag odds.   ...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Ten

Sometimes I hate being right. I especially hate being right when it costs the Florida Gators. Last week I picked Georgia to beat Florida and well that’s exactly what happened. The loss cost Florida dearly. Along with being eliminated in the SEC East division race the loss cost Florida the services of head coach Jim McElwain. For a coach who won back to back division titles the fall from grace was both quick and...

West Coast Bias – Week Nine Plays

YTD: 20-22  LW: 2-3 145 Indiana OVER 51 – Our numbers have this game closer to 60 (in the high 50’s) and we see Indiana being able to score some points against a Terp defense that has given up 35 points per game to Minnesota, Northwestern and Wisconsin.  Both teams will bring a maximum effort as this is a winnable game for both teams with outside shots at bowl eligibility.  We expect Hoosier QB Ramsey to be able...
