West Coast Bias – Week Eleven 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 # 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 Heisman Trophy Prediction

Heisman Trophy Prediction Now that we are into November and already Week 11 of the 2017 college football season, we should have a pretty clear picture of who will win the Heisman Trophy – or at least whose it is to lose and which players will earn a trip to New York as a finalist. Here’s a look at the only four realistic candidates along with their Mybookie.ag odds. The Heisman will be given out on Saturday, Dec. 9 with the...

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...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Nine

As I’m sure you’ll agree, college football sure is one heck of a fickle mistress. We go from from family man to FAN-actic rather quickly on Saturdays (and NFL Sundays for that matter) really quickly don’t we? Yet sometimes, we don’t receive anything in return. It’s all good though. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, in my opinion. For better or worse, of course. Apologies for the...

2017 Big Ten Football Picks – Week # 9

Week 8 was a terrific week for this column as we went 3-0 and improved to 12-10-1 on the season. Northwestern won in overtime against Iowa, Penn State easily dispatched of Michigan and Purdue and Rutgers went way under their posted total. We’ll try to continue riding the wave of good fortune this week!   Pick of the Week – IU (-4) at Maryland – 3:30 on BTN The Indiana Hoosiers have made a bad habit of breaking the...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Eight

Well, now, seems like we’re back to it doesn’t it? After a tough loss two weeks ago we rebounded nicely with a win last week thanks to the Ole Miss Rebels and their comfortable victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores. We’re now 4-3 on the year. Nowhere to go but up, I guess. I swear, it would be so easy to go 10-2 every year just picking Vanderbilt games, but alas, that’s not how I roll. As for the...
