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...

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 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 Ten Plays

YTD: 23-23  LW: 3-1 349 Nevada +22 – Too many points here for a Reno squad that has found some momentum the last few weeks putting up 35, 42, and 42 the last three games.  Boise is not really blowing out teams like they typically do as QB Rypien just hasn’t been as good this season and the Smurfs just aren’t as explosive, as they have been leaning on the defense so far in 2017.  I have this number in the 15.5...

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 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...

BoomTown’s Breakdown CFB Week 8

Welcoming myself back, after a week hiatus, and in a somewhat jovial mood. And why shouldn’t I be? I’ve pushed my number north to just under 59% for CFB, and the NFL is at a 63% hit rate. Those figures right there are enough to have the common bettor jump on board with one of my packages! You know, if I were in that business, but I’m not. Don’t need to be. I make my own loot, so I don’t need...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Seven

Welp, that was a disaster so we’re going to keep this brief. Not only did we miss on our pick of the week – Kentucky favored by ten against Missouri, won by six – but my Gators took one on the chin from LSU. Full disclosure: In my defense, Saturday turned out to be moving day, so I blame myself for not being there for them in their time of need. Anyways, we hit on the upset alert but nothing else. Back to...

West Coast Bias – Week Seven Plays

YTD: 15-18  LW: 2-3 115 Northwestern -3.5 – Last week we saw Maryland get destroyed by Ohio State and in that game the Terps lost their third-string QB Bortenschlager with a nasty hit to the head.  He is supposedly going to start this week, however the Terps may need to turn to fourth string QB Henderson in this contest if he can’t go.  The Kitties come in after a loss last week against Penn State and will look...

BoomTown’s BreakDown CFB Week 6

What’s shakin’, BoomTown? This CFB season is just friggin’ flying by. We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs, but we’ve kept it real the whole way through. Good news this week is that my kids don’t have games until Sunday, therefore, we can get some extra focus on Saturday adds. Tough to do on the sidelines as I’m trying to coach. Nevertheless, I got a plethora of games cemented in...
