Jimmyshivers Week 5 ACC Football Picks

After a very successful week 3 (6-1 record) outside circumstances forced me to skip posting a Week 4 ACC card here.  Ultimately this wound up being a positive, as it was a very ugly card that I wasn’t able to dedicate my usual amount of time towards researching.  Week 5 brings us a much more favorable schedule for the ACC teams in my opinion, and one that I invested in very early.  I played a bunch of games when the...

For your consideration: Week # 5

Iowa State nearly pulled off an upset three weeks ago against Kansas State.  It was a great spot for them, especially with the Wildcats having the Auburn Tigers next on their schedule.  This week I’m going back to the well and playing the Cyclones again.  This time they will host #6 Baylor as 22 point home underdogs. If I’m being completely honest, I’m betting against Baylor, more than I’m betting for Iowa State.  Too many...

For your consideration: Week # 4

I have said it many times, but it’s worth repeating.  “Rankings mean very little in college sports”, in fact, more times than not, you are paying an extra point (or two) in betting on favorites, oddsmakers know they will get action on the ranked team regardless.  It’s also worth mentioning, ranked teams will get full effort and attention from most underdogs.  The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off a horrible loss to Bowling...

Week 4: MAC, AAC, and C-USA picks

I only found three games I really liked this week. As always, feel free to comment or leave a question below or on Twitter @Smithers513. Good luck! Record: Week 1: 3-1 Week 2: 3-1 Week 3: 2-2 Season: 8-4 (66.67%) Marshall at Akron +9 There’s a lot to like about taking Akron this week. To start, Marshall’s Jekyl and Hyde home and road split has a chance to rear it’s ugly head. Marshall is a staggering 1-9-1...

Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread

Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread   Aside from Virginia Tech earning a shocking W in Columbus, it was not a huge week nationally for the ACC. Sometimes it’s best in the early weeks just to stay out of the spotlight (Big Ten!) and grind out results.  That’s exactly what the rest of the league did in Week 2, with all 11 ACC teams who played a non-conference game earning a Win. On the gambling front, it was also a solid week...

For your consideration: Week # 3

Rarely will I put a lot of emphasis on one player when deciding which game to wager on, but if you haven’t heard about the 6’2, 218 pound senior QB out of East Carolina, you soon will.  His name is Shane Carden and this kid can spin it. Last year he had one of the best seasons of any quarterback, throwing for more than 4000 yards and completing more than 70 percent of his passes, ranking him third in the nation. And if those...

For your consideration: Week # 2

There’s an old sports betting rule, “it’s not who you play, but when you play.”  The Wildcats must travel to Ames, IA to take on the Cyclones of Iowa State, before going back home to play in one of the most anticipated match-ups this season vs the Auburn Tigers.  KSU will need to keep their heads in the game and not look past, what seems to be a below average Iowa State football team.   The Cyclones were humiliated at home...
