SEC Pick of the Week – Week Four

Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun. It’s hard to believe that we’re almost to the quarter pole of the 2016 college football season already isn’t it? Anyway, thanks to the South Carolina Gamecocks’ 20-15 victory over the East Carolina Pirates and the very interesting no call on the two-point conversion – thank you, sideline official! – that allowed for that final score to...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 4 preview

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 4 preview Oklahoma State @ Baylor (-8, O/U 76) There’s always a bit of trepidation in Baylor’s first Big 12 game of the season.  Baylor will generally have spent three weeks laying into some of the very worst opponents that the FCS and FBS have to offer, leaving smoldering craters where fully intact defenses used to be, and there’s excitement at seeing them take on real competition-...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 4...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 4       Wisconsin at Michigan State (-5.5) – Noon on BTN Very few people pegged this as a matchup of borderline top ten teams (Wisconsin is currently 11th) when the season began. However, after three weeks of action, the Wisconsin Badgers have an upset of LSU and sit at 3-0 while the Michigan State Spartans sit at 2-0 with a win at Notre Dame. The Spartans were...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 3 Preview

Pitt Panthers @ Oklahoma State Cowboys (-4 1/2, O/U 60 1/2) Last week was an absolute heartbreaker for the Cowboys, but even taking away the incorrect officiating and the mildly miraculous conversion of the last play of the game, it was not a good effort from the Cowboys last week.  The Chippewas repeatedly stuffed the Cowboys on the run, carved up the OSU secondary and sacked OSU QB Mason Rudolph four times.  It...

2016 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Three

Well now, not a bad start to the 2016 college football season if I do say so myself. With Tennessee’s 45-24 victory over Virginia Tech at the “Battle of Bristol” we’re now 2-0 to start the year in our SEC Pick of the Week segment here at The Saturday Edge. As if you doubted me… Maybe you did, maybe you didn’t. Either way, it doesn’t matter. We’ll just head into week three...

West Coast Bias Week 3 Picks

West Coast Bias Week 3 Picks 137 UNLV +13.5  Sandwiched between big games @ Oklahoma State and @ Virginia, the Chips come home to face UNLV. Isn’t UNLV good at hoops or something? This is a question you could see being asked by many of the Chip players who were involved in a massive last second upset win last week in Stillwater. UNLV comes in with a solid HC Sanchez and is pushing almost 6 yards per rush and can pound...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 3...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 3       Pick of the Week Colorado at Michigan (-20.5) – Saturday at 3:30 The once mighty Colorado Buffaloes have not won more than four games in a season since 2010 and they haven’t been to a bowl game since 2007. However, things may be looking up as the Buffs have opened the 2016 season with a pair of blowout victories over Colorado State (44-7) and Idaho State...

West Coast Bias – Week 2 Picks

West Coast Bias – Week 2 Picks 349 UTSA + 10  No team that gets bullied by CU like the Rams did last week deserves to be laying 10 the following week.  Last year these teams played a close one and I don’t anticipate the talent gap to be this year either.  Expect Roadrunner RB Williams and Rhodes to have a nice day against a Ram D that gave up 260+ yards last week to CU and for Rams QB Stevens to struggle again on...

2016 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Two

College football is a funny thing. While there’s no doubt the top of the SEC (read: Alabama) is far and away the best in college football the rest is, well, average. Unless of course Appalachian State, Southern Miss, UMass and Wisconsin, among others are world beaters. The conference struggled as a whole, there’s no denying that, but something tells me they’ll be alright. There’s just too much...

Smitty’s Week 2 Picks

Smitty’s Week 2 Picks Not an ideal start last week going 1-2, but given the unknowns going into the opening weekend, not horrible. The next four or five weeks is where the real money is there to be made in college football. I’m a little short on time as I’m traveling this week, but here are my plays below. Central Florida +35.5 @ Michigan As I mentioned in our AAC preview, I really like this UCF team this...
