Championship Week – Leans & Thoughts

Below is a quick email exchange between GoSooners and I discussing a few of this weeks games. Please let us know what you guys think about each game and who you are looking at. Thanks.     Bowling Green +4.5 Pez:  I actually hit NIU -3 early in the week thinking the number was too low and would go up. Kind of like Bowling Green …. Better D getting points …… I got NIU +2 on a neutral field  GoSooners: This could be...

Mountain West Conference Preview: Utah State at Fr...

The 24th-ranked Fresno State Bulldogs host the Utah State Aggies Saturday night in the first Mountain West championship game. I was really looking forward to this match-up and thought that despite Fresno State’s loss last week to San Jose State, we would still see an inflated line. I was really surprised when this game opened at Fresno State -3.5 at most sports betting sites like SportsBettingOnline.ag. I thought we’d...

College Football Week 9 Quick Hitters – Bett...

Last week’s betting nuggets turned out to real, legitimate gold after it was all said and done. The only big “fool’s gold” of the week was in the featured pick (Wyoming), making those picks 2-3 ATS on the year. The rest of last week’s results along with year-to-date totals are shown below. (YTD “recommended” totals start from week #6, when the “Quick Hitters” format...

Week 7: “In The Money” with TrentMoney

So if Northwestern falls on the ball in the endzone or knocks it out of the back of the endzone, OhioState wins by 6, and Northwestern covers…put that in your pipe and smoke it!!! I always find it interesting how sometimes the scoreboard doesn’t really tell the whole story.  Sometimes one play or a coach’s decision can be the difference between a close game and a blowout, or a game that almost covered and a game that beat...

Jimmyshivers NCAA Football Picks — Week #7

Another disapointing week where we win the easy ones (Florida State, Ball State) and lose every game that was close in the 4th quarter (UNC, Army, GT-Miami Under)  2-3 isn’t the end of the world, and sadly its actually an improvement to the winning percentage at this point in the season.   I remain confident that we will start to see some luck in the close games, and as long as my process remains sound things will...

Week 6: “In The Money” with TrentMoney

And in the time it took me to write this column Georgia and LSU just scored again…. In our pursuit to improve and evolve as handicappers, we’re constantly looking at new angles, trends, and stats to find that elusive edge which will bring us consistent winners.  Whether it be Excel spreadsheets formulating statistical algorithms, probability models, or data mining for long term trends, handicapping lends itself to high level...

Week 6: Quick Hits on the MAC, C-USA, and Sun Belt

As always, feel free to leave a comment or question, and I’ll be happy to answer. You can also find me on Twitter @SmithAdamJ5. Good luck! Ball State +5.5 @ Virginia Can the Ball State Cardinals go into UVA and come out with a win? I think so. Ball State is playing some good football right now, and could be catching the Cavaliers at the perfect time. After a 14-3 loss at Pitt last week, the Cavs get Ball State at home,...

Jimmysingh: College Football Insights Week # 6

Texas -9.5 over Iowa St I have Iowa St as the worst team in the Big 12. They have showed poorly in their first two games and was actually lucky that they ended up a team that is worse than them in Tulsa this past week.  Texas comes in with a win at home over Kansas St and coming off a bye where they can hopefully build things leading up to their Red River Rivalry matchup in two weeks. I said before the Kansas St game that...

Week 5: “In The Money” with TrentMoney

A quick thought and a link on a busy Football Friday… Tracking line moves and chasing steam can be a confusing, and sometimes perilous endeavor. These days, with offshores releasing early lines, syndicates moving spreads both ways just to get the best of both numbers, along with the weekly service plays that have an effect on the market, it can catch watchers off guard as to when to make a play, and which moves are worthy of...
